About Alison Williams

Originally from Liverpool, England, I moved to Providenciales in 1989 and am the owner of a school on the island. I love children, animals, boats and island living! I have a beautiful, very laid back, white golden retriever (Mishka) who lives with me in the main house and accompanies me to school most days. He loves children and enjoys swimming and beach walks. My son moved back home in 2015 to open Okeanos juice, smoothie Bar, which now sells home made yummy rolled ice cream! He also owns a boat company, which offers private and semi private snorkeling, diving and around the island sightseeing trips.

Since his return Josh has adopted 2 younger island rescue dogs, Eleni and Moose. We welcome you Elysium Cottage and to The Turks and Caicos Islands.

Alison Williams purchased this studio in 2014

Why Alison Williams chose Discovery Bay

This house is perfect because of its central location, security, privacy, serenity and canal/ocean boat access. I consider myself very lucky to live here and look forward to welcoming you to my island paradise.

What makes this studio unique

I fell in love with this property because of the location and views of the canal. It really is beautiful and extremely peaceful. The perfect place to stay if you want to enjoy complete privacy and peace and quiet and yet still have the benefit of being no more than 5-10 minutes away from the world famous Grace Bay Beach. In addition to Grace Bay Beach, you will have the opportunity to learn so much more about our secluded beaches and endless activity options.

The property is amazing! The cottage is perfect size for 2 people, clean, cute and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage and property are great! Highly recommend for 2 people. Great space to sleep, has TV, and small kitchen. The outdoor space and pool are beautiful. I had coffee and breakfast outside every morning. The house has snorkel gear which we used everyday. Allison is excellent- she dropped me at a hidden, private beach one day. She helped me get my rental car and toured me around island. She recommended some excellent beaches and restaurants. The house is very safe and close to Grace Bay hotels and dining. If I’m lucky enough to come back again I will stay here again.

Great value on a cute cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a week in Alison's guest cottage. It was quite comfortable, outfitted with everything one would need, and perfectly sized for a couple. Alison was very friendly and welcoming to us, and her property is well taken care of. The home is in a nice neighborhood and we always felt very safe: coming and going as we pleased. Although one could get away without renting a car, the closest restaurants and beach were about a half mile away so I recommend that guests spring for a rental car. We would certainly recommend staying here and would definitely rent from Alison again. Thanks for helping make our stay on Provo fun and memorable!

Beautiful property, wonderful host, great location.

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay was perfect. Alison, our host, was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful, but also respected our privacy and left us to enjoy the space. The pool is beautiful, the accommodations were comfortable, and we just had so much fun. Highly recommend staying here.

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at the cottage. Alison and Is available, but you still have a great deal of privacy. A car is a must, nothing is really in walking distance, but everything is extremely close. A grocery store 5 mins away, nice restaurants 5 mins away, and beautiful public beaches. We packed a cooler and went to Malcom’s Beach three days in a row-good snorkeling right off the beach. Very worth the the 20 min adventure. Alison has snorkel gear, a cooler, and beach chairs ready for use. We hope to return some day. Her three dogs are so cute and sweet. Thank you!!

My husband and I stayed here 4 nights in January 2018. This place is amazing! The bed was comfy, kitchen had plenty of equipment to cook, and the property felt very secure and safe. I was impressed that there was a cooler and tupperware containers which made packing our lunches a breeze as dining out on the island is quite expensive. The best part was that the pool area was a welcome retreat when we needed a break from the hot sun on the beaches. We had a rental car, which was great to get around the island, and the property is located just a short drive from a few grocery stores. The 3 dogs are friendly and well-behaved. Would highly recommend staying here!

Cute Cottage with a Wonderful Hostess

  • 5 of 5

We picked this property for the great reviews and amenities. We were not disappointed. Allison was very responsive to our many questions about renting a car and activities. The directions from the airport were easy and clear. The cottage was larger than we expected, very clean, tastefully decorated and perfect for our stay. There were a few technical difficulties (internet, stove, gate), but these were due to power surges during the hurricane. Allison responded quickly to get these all fixed. We brought most of our food with us, and enjoyed grilling and eating on the deck. The cottage was well equipped with plenty of towels, dishes, and appliances (even a bullet for daiquiris). We were comfortable without using the A/C. Allison and her son, Josh, were kind, helpful and great hosts. We really enjoyed the dogs. They're very friendly, super cute and made us feel safe. The grounds and garden were beautiful during the day and especially at night. The cottage is centrally located...close to the grocery store, restaurants and beaches. We went parasailing with Capt. Marvin's at Coral Gardens, snorkeling at Smith's Reef (saw multiple turtles, stingrays and even a shark). We visited Sapodilla Bay, Malcolm beach, Leeward beach, Pelican Bay, Long Bay, Caulk Sound, and Grace Bay. We went horseback riding with Provo Ponies and had an amazing time riding the horses on the beach and in the water. Make sure you rent a car and bring Deet!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write such a helpful review. You were both such great guests and really understanding when so many things seemed to go wrong during your stay. You kept smiling the whole time! Hopefully the hurricane madness that caused so much havoc to our appliances is now over and everything will continue to work properly from now on! Thank you again and we hope to see you again one day!
