Why JoAnn Ardell chose Grace Bay

I absolutely love Provo, Turks and Caicos is the true Caribbean. Where you can walk for hours one way down the beach never having to go around out crops of rocks or hundreds of sun bathers. The sand reaches as far as the eye can see. The natural reef surrounding the island keeps the wave crashing to a minimum which makes for the clearest ocean waters I've ever seen. It doesn't matter if you want to perfect your swim by going all the way out to the reef or just wading in the water there's always something to do. The people are friendly, it's one of the safest islands in the Caribbean. Come and experience what I have fell in love with.

What makes this house unique

Satori can accommodate 6 people in the home and you can also rent the separate bedroom / bathroom for an additional 2 people. Or you can just rent the separate bedroom / bathroom for a exceptional value at $150 per night. The bedroom / bathroom has; t.v., internet, cable, a/c, full bathroom, mini fridge, coffee maker, toaster and computer desk.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Myself and two friends had the privilege of staying at the Satori for eight nights in February 2017. The rental was not like other rentals we've visited. It was indeed like a home away from home - beautifully appointed with much warmth and personal touches. JoAnn was a splendid and gracious hostess who was always available when needed with helpful suggestions and recommendations. The beach, which was gorgeous, was indeed a brief 2 to 3 minute stroll away. Other amenities were a short drive away. We would definitely give this "gem in the T & C" five star rating. It is exactly as described and more. Thank you JoAnn, we had a great time.

Great location, great hospitality, and steps away from beautiful beach! Would stay again!

  • 5 of 5

Satori at Grace Bay was a nice home with extremely close access to the beautiful beach. The property had all the amenities we needed and Joanne (owner) was more than accommodating (ie, easily available, gave good recommendations/suggestions on things to do, places to eat, etc). We had a great time in the beautiful Turks and Caicos and would definitely stay again.

Satori at Grace Bay as advertised

  • 1 of 5

We booked what we thought was beachfront property and it is not beachfront but over 2 blocks from the Beach.

We arrived at night and were asked to sign an agreement that we would pay for the air conditioning when in the rental agreement it said $12 a day. The owner was out of town so her neighbor, Ermina, who was checking us in, had to try to get ahold of her and this took way too long. After getting ahold of her, she agreed to the $12 a day. If we had had to pay for the air conditioning in full, it would have ended up costing us a substantial amount more and we might as well have paid for two rooms at a nice resort.

There were ants all over the kitchen, bathroom and master bedroom. The owner had a pest control spray the outside but this only seemed to aggravate the situation.

When we spoke to the owner, who was not easy to get ahold of, she accused us of leaving food out and that we had caused the ant problem. We also discussed the fact that this property was not beachfront and there was not a clothes dryer as advertised. The owner denied what was advertised and refused to do anything to compensate us. She then accused my husband of being drunk which he certainly was not.

The bed was uncomfortable and the hot water would run out after taking a shower. There were several bulbs burnt out and the lighting was dim.

The air conditioning broke and when we tried to get ahold of the owner she would not respond. Instead we had to keep calling the girl who checked us in, Ermina. Ermina was very resourceful and did everything she could to solve our problems.

The night before leaving, the battery went out on the safe. Our passports were in the safe along with other valuables. We texted, called and emailed the owner as it was late at night and we had to get up at 4am to leave. She did not respond. Lucky for her, Ermina did respond. She had no idea where the key was for the safe and the owner had left no provisions for this happening. But after two hours and at 1am, Ermina found someone to break into the safe and get it open.

This was frustrating for both us and Ermina.

The house did have a cute pool area. And again the owner was lucky to have someone like Ermina to help her. Ermina also brought us water as there was none at all left to begin our stay (we understood we had to refill it and we left the house with a full bottle). Ermina also kindly took us to the market as it was late at night when we arrived.

Owner's Response: Thank you Robin Hosmer for your detailed review. I do appreciate you had a unfortunate experience with the safe and I'm so glad I had people on staff at that hour and that were resourceful for you. At Satori, we do try to ensure everything is pleasant for our guests. The past reviews have clearly showed people love the house, property and the experience they have at Satori. The air conditioning charge of $12 per day verses metered would have cost you less by $13.16 and for that I sent you a credit offer via PayPal. As for the ants, bed, shower, light bulb and air conditioning; I had the property immediately sprayed upon you mentioning this. The cleaning staff said they didn't see any prior to your stay so again I'm very sorry you experienced this. As for the bed I haven't had any prior complaints but it has been replaced now, thank you for your feedback. The shower and light bulb - I had my staff increase the hot water for you and replace the one out light bulb in the master suite. Finally with the air conditioning it certainly did work unfortunately, you had the setting on continuous at 17 degrees Celsius, which froze up the unit. Again, I immediately brought in a technician, where he thawed and serviced the unit for your pleasure that evening. The second sentence in my description states "Satori at Grace Bay is a mere two minute walk on a quiet residential road to the wonderful Grace Bay Beach and to the best snorkeling on the island." - not beachfront. Also in my description throughout I state " (Air conditioning is metered and charged back to the guests at cost)." Once again, I thank you for your stay and your review. I'm glad you were able to enjoy our island and your fishing expeditions. I'm sure one of your best memories will be, having the local fishing men come back to Satori and have them BBQ your fresh catch at the day while sitting by the pool reminiscing of the catch. Thank you JoAnn

Beautiful, comfortable house. Great location - so close to beautiful Grace Bay Beach. Easy access to snorkeling, parasailing, tubing. Short drive to restaurants and shops. Jo Ann and Kaiser were wonderful hosts. Love this island and will visit again soon.

Fantastic Property in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Satori at Grace Bay for a week in February. As advertised, the home is a short walk to a marvelous beach, at which you can sun and snorkel on a wonderful reef (we saw turtles, eagle rays and a shark on one notable excursion). Getting to the beach does not require that you cross any roads.

The home is lovely and well-kept. The ceiling is vaulted throughout. There are fans in almost every room, which are adequate for cooling in almost all circumstances. Air conditioning is also available. The kitchen is well appointed with cookware, plates, silverware, etc. You have two table options for dining-one on the porch, the other in a dining area. The TV is large and has a good selection of channels, and the WiFi was fast and reliable. The beds are large and comfortable.

There are folding chairs for your beach use, as well as snorkeling gear. The beach towels for your use are ones you would pick if price were not an issue. There is a small pool on the property that has ample lounge chairs, although we did not use this pool often because we were so close to the ocean. The property is within a short drive of 2 grocery stores and the Ports of Call and Salt Mills area.

JoAnn, the property owner, is a consummate host. Pre-stay communications were quick and effective. She made sure we had everything we needed, including information about local restaurants and shopping spots. We had a brief power outage in the neighborhood one evening-she came by to make sure we had a flashlight and candles. She did not hover, but was available to answer our questions when we had them.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Satori at Grace Bay, and will try to stay there again if we go back to Providenciales. This might be difficult, because I suspect reservations will be at a premium once it becomes known that Satori is a great place to stay.
