A family of four spends spring break on Turks and Caicos

When friends recommended Turks and Caicos as a great family vacation destination, Wendy booked White Villas for her crew. Spending spring break on a tropical island with her husband and two teenage daughters was the perfect antidote to life in Wisconsin. Here’s our follow-up with the family:

Describe your favorite day on the island. What was fun or different from the rest?

Every day was perfect, sunny and warm.  I think taking wave runners to the ship and jumping off was our favorite day. It certainly wasn’t something we’re used to doing!

Jumping off the ship was great fun!

Name some of the best activities you and your family engaged in.

We were busy and really took advantage of everything the island had to offer. We went parasailing, snorkeling, paddle boarding, rented wave runners and Tom tried kiteboarding. It was a water sport week for sure.

What did your teenage daughters particularly love?

The kids loved the house and hanging in the pool and then walking to the beach because it was so close by.

Loved that the beach was SO close by.

Anything you would have liked to have in the villa or known in advance?

The villa was perfect and we were very well informed from the start. All good and this is important when you’re renting a villa vs a hotel. We felt well taken care of. 

What about food? Did you eat in or out and what did you enjoy?  

We bought a few groceries to have on hand but mostly ate out.  We loved going to the cafe in the morning for coffee and pancakes.  Dinner out was fun.  We always tried for a beach restaurant.  Da Conch Shack was the most memorable and we enjoyed the roadside grill.

Was this your first villa experience?

We rented a house in Santa Monica last spring break but this was our first villa and we loved it.

How would you compare a villa to a resort vacation?

The villa was perfect for our family, we did a lot during the day so it was nice to come back and relax in our own space.

Why did you choose our villa?

The girls saw the villa on line and were super excited about staying in such a modern outdoor living villa. The price was within our budget and honestly, the indoor/outdoor living arrangement is amazing.

Anything to add?

Simon and his family were very responsive and we’d come back without hesitation. We definitely recommend this experience to all families who want a beautiful island getaway. Thanks for the follow-up and asking about our satisfaction and experience. We appreciate it! Oh! Our girls made a video of our vacation. Here’s the link:
