My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Patio House. The day of arrival we experienced a hiccup with our rental as the agency, Hertz, did not accept AMEX. I this location you do need a car however, Mr. Williams met us at the airport and provided us transportation back to the home. He also offered to take us to the grocery along the way, we declined (not realizing we'd need this) as well as offered suggestions that were within walking distance which was hugely helpful. We spent the first couple of days without a car (we arrived on a Saturday evening) but the beach is about 5 mins away as others have said as well as the Shoreclub where we were able to have lunch and dinner before we received our rental. The beach is very peaceful, not as touristy as say the Grace Bay Beach but sufficient. There are these little prickles along the ground and you definitely do not want these to get stuck in your feet. The home is literally 10 mins away from the touristy area. There are two grocery stores (the IGA in the Grace Bay area is similar to a Whole Foods) with plenty of items for your convenience. The owner of the home provided items necessary for your stay as well as anticipated other needs such as beach chairs. We found the furnishings, condition of the home quite comfortable and most helpful were the island guides that listed restaurant and other recommendations (Mine are Caravell, Mango Reef, Mr. Grouper's, the Crackpot (I think which Mr. Williams recommended) oh and the fish fry on Thursdays @ Bight Beach! All in all, the place was quite peaceful and felt somewhat “homey”, I would stay here again.
Wonderful place. The photos don’t do it justice. Very spacious. Close to everything. Great secluded beach in walking distance. Owner’s hospitality was refreshing.
We got off to a bit of a rough start due to this being our first trip abroad and our first vacation home rental. Lovetha was very patient with us and Mr Audley was accommodating and helpful. The home is large, open, airy, and reasonably equipped. The two decks were both wonderful and provided a great view of the Kite Surfers and the water. The beach is only a five minute walk from the house! We hope to rent again! Know before you go: The WiFi in the home is painfully slow and not strong enough to stream videos or download books. Make sure you have everything dumped into your devices before leaving. Likewise, the TV in the bedroom has minimal reception and often skips. If you like to watch TV before bed you may want to consider downloading movies and TV shows prior to arrival.
The house is big, with two large decks from which you can see or hear the beach one block away. Quiet area but very easy to get to other beaches, restaurants, and rest of Island. We hope to be back!
I travelled to Turks and Caicos with my husband in April 2017. The service received from the patio house was excellent. Mr. Audley met us at the airport and we followed him in our rental car to the patio house. This is a very big spacious house, that is in a quiet location in long bay. We loved staying there and plan on staying again soon. This house is also a short walk to the beach. Thanks to Lovetha and Mr. Audley for being accommodating and understanding of my travel situation. (Had to change my dates because I fell ill on the day of my travel). I would 100% recommend this place for anyone traveling to Turks and Caicos!
It was awesome! We are planning to go back again this year that's how much we loved it! Perfect space...Beach access literally 5 minutes away if that....And privacy perfect for a couple if wanted! Can't wait to come back! Thank you so much
