Our family of 5 just returned from a truly unforgettable vacation at Aqua View Villa. The pictures on this site just can’t do this location justice. The setting, overlooking the almost unreal Chalk Sound, took our breath away and the house was incredibly clean, comfortable and roomy. Between the 3 bedrooms, the expansive inside living room, the HUGE screened-in porch (complete with plenty of seating and stereo), the infinity pool and the covered hammock under the water's edge gazebo (again with stereo), it was hard to force ourselves to leave and explore the island. The property manager Jose, was first rate-incredibly personable and helpful with great ideas on places to go and restaurants to dine at, and he was just a cell phone call away in case of any need! The housekeeper Novellette, keeps the house in pristine condition. We have rented dozens of homes/condos over the years and we have never had the pleasure of staying in a cleaner, more well maintained home—thank you Jose and Novellette! We explored almost every corner of this beautiful island and every time we came back to the house we agreed there truly wasn't a better view/setting anywhere! Finally, we found the house to be very family friendly—the kitchen was well equipped (there are only so many times you want to eat out with kids), all the beds were super comfortable, the hosts provide an abundance of bath/beach towels, the wifi signal was strong and reliable and the gated entrance/fence around the property added a level of security/comfort. Thank you for sharing your slice of heaven with our family--we hope we are blessed enough to return again!

Girls Get Away!
My girlfriends, including my Mom and sister, stayed in Aqua View Villa for a week in January. One of the BEST vacations ever. Jose was great and helped us when my best friend lost her luggage. He gave us great advice on places to eat and things to do. The service by Jose was great but the view each morning was the best. The house was well equipped for our needs and Jose was there to help us with anything. We had a flat tire on our way from the airport. He took my mother and sister to the home while we waited for the tire to be replaced. He arrived back to us before the people came to change the tire. Overall, one of the best vacations and I would stay at Aqua View Villa again, and again, and again!

Best vacation ever My husband and I just had the most amazing vacation of our lives in Turks and Caicos, and our stay at Aqua View Villa is what made it so perfect. We felt like we were in our own private paradise. In the entire time that we stayed at Aqua View Villa, we never saw another single person out in Chalk Sound. Each morning, we would grab a kayak or canoe and our snorkel gear and explore the Sound. The reefs right out in the back yard are breathtaking with so much live coral. We were amazed how many HUGE snappers were lurking around the reefs. If only we could have caught them!! After our exploration, all we needed to worry about was whether to nap on the covered dock on the bay or lounge by the infinity pool. We had heard that Turks and Caicos had some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, so we ventured across the island to check out Grace Bay. While Grace Bay is gorgeous, the first thing that we said when we walked back into Aqua View Villa was “Wow!!” The view out the back of the villa is far more outstanding than any beach I have ever seen in my life. We decided that day that nothing can compare to Aqua View, so why even bother leaving! Aqua View is decorated beautifully and the accommodations are perfect. We cooked breakfast and sometimes dinner in the villa and never needed a thing that wasn't right there. We felt very safe and comfortable. Additionally, the villa is very conveniently located just down the street from the best restaurant on the island, Las Brisas. If you want to have the vacation of your life, definitely plan to stay at Aqua View Villa!!

My extended family and I just spent two outstanding weeks at Aqua View Villa. The house is amazing, well equipped and very very clean. The view is incredible. The owners and staff were genuinely committed to ensure everything was perfect. I would strongly recommend that you take advantage of this amazing property

We just got back from Turks and Caicos and we loved every minute of it. Aqua View Villa is amazing. We could have sat at the infinity pool all day long and soaked up the sun and the beautiful views it has. Chalk Sound is gorgeous, as well as all the other beaches we visited. Taylor Bay or Sunset bay is 5 minutes away and it was our favorite beach. No one seems to no about it so we found ourselves there all alone a couple of times. Las Brisas is a restaurant that is also about 5 minutes away. We ended up eating there twice and it was some of the best food we have ever eaten, We would definitely stay at Aqua View Villa again if we can make it back. The owners were so great to work with and made our vacation one of the best ones we have ever had.

a group of us came down for a little over a week. It was one of the most relaxing vacations I have had in a long time. The house is beautiful and has everything you need from the kitchen to the kayaks. The pool is perfect and the beds are cozy. Couldn't have had a more beautiful experience. Be sure to hit the Sound if the water is flat. There is nothing like kayaking out there. And eat at Las Brisas!!! We had a blast, I recommend this home highly. And order a rum cake from the famous Aunt Dodi!!!!!

Kayaking, Snorkling, Grilling and Hammocking
My girlfirend and I just returned from a wonderfully relaxing vacation at this beautiful home. We would wake in the morning with fresh coffee over-looking the sound and the hundreds of kays. We would kayak about, snorkle around the kays then come back and swim in the AWESOME infinity pool. We put the grill to good use as well as relaxing in the hammocks. They have a great kitchen, wi-fi internet, cable, movies and nice new amenities. Jose met us at the airport, got us settled and then we just un-wound for a full week. I couldnt recommend this house enough. Perfect for a romantic get-away, families or a group of friends.

We had the most incredible time here. The house is exactly as described, also bright, cheerful and spotless. Every thing you could need is waiting for you. The view is incredible, the hosts attentive but not intrusive. The pool was amazing, the deck and screened in porch added so much to our stay. The beds were so comfortable and the location on Chalk Sound Drive is perfect. There are two secluded beaches nearby and gorgeous Grace Bay is just a drive away. We highly recommend a stay here and we will be back!

Excellent Choice -- Loved It !!
We spent 5 days in March 2011 on Spring Break with our high school daughter and her friend in this very relaxing house. From the pick-up at the airport to the recommendations for restaurants and wine stores to the stocking of the fridge in advance, the owner's son was a stellar host and a riot ! Thanks, Jose!
You def. need a car (remember, British road system, stay on the left !!). We booked Avis from the states -- make sure you ask for an auto transmission if you can't drive a stick! The house is only a 5 minute drive for lunch or dinner down to the bottom of the Chalk Sound Hill at the restaurant La Brisas. It has a nice outdoor bar and indoor/outdoor seating that is very nice and good food from charming owners. Across from La Brisas, down a dirt road is the wonderful, shallow turquoise water Sapodilla Bay Beach and back up closer to the house Taylor Bay Beach... both beautiful -- always mentioned in the guidebooks, and never crowded. You could walk to Taylor Bay Beach, but not Sapodilla Bay (unless you're up for a long walk to it, and long walk back up the hill).
You can drive 20 minutes from the house to get to the Grace Bay Hotel areas with those beaches, more beachside amenities if you want more of that, and most of the finer restaurants. After the first day, you figure out all the roads and roundabouts.
House has wireless internet, well-equipped kitchen, TV with lots of channels, including from U.S. and beautiful pool (not heated but pretty warm) off the house and then a covered sun dock area right down at the Chalk Sound waters edge. You can fish from there (house has fishing rods), take the sea kayaks out, or even snorkel off there (I did). Beautiful, sweeping views from the pool and the backside of the house.
All in all, a great choice for a larger group, at a better value than the Grace Bay hotels. We would def. go back here!

My husband and I are both Active Duty Army and since the beginning of the Global War on Terrorism, we haven't been able to take a vacation but this time upon our return from our most recent deployment, we quickly booked a trip to the beautiful Turks and Caicos Island, and we stayed at this spectacular property located on Chalk Sound for a week and we absolutely loved it!!!!!! The entire property was amazing! We set up a couple's massage down under the gazebo and went swimming daily in the pool. We visited a number of the restaurants within the area and was able to enjoy a beautiful sunset cruise. Our entire stay was phenomenal and we are looking forward to our next trip and when we book, we will definitely stay at this property!!!!!
