Overview

About the property

2 bedroom, 2.5 bath ensuite, 2 story beautifully appointed townhome

Welcome to Bijou, an exquisitely detailed gem, well matching her name.

Bijou, a two bedroom/2.5 bath ensuite town home with two levels is just steps from the beach and a short stroll from five of Provo’s most popular dining spots. We think this may be the perfect affordable vacation package for honeymooners, two couples, or a small family.

The main level has a large entrance hall and a two-piece bath, an outstanding granite kitchen with stainless appliances and a large breakfast bar, a generous dining room and a contiguous large screened porch overlooking the garden. The garden itself is private – perfect for lounging or for grilling.

Upstairs you will find two full bedrooms with full baths ensuite. The east suite features a king bed, flat screen TV, a balcony, double closets and a granite bathroom. It also has a television and DVD player. The west suite has twin beds, double closets and a granite bathroom as well.

From the garden, follow a charming path through the lush landscaping to a gorgeous shared pool complete with a cabana overlooking the canal. Perfect spot for cocktails or an alfresco lunch.

Bijou is ideally located for those who may not want to rent a car. One can walk to the beach (five minutes), to a large grocery store (15 minutes), or to several restaurants or coffee shops. Bicycles are also available for rent just around the corner.

The Thursday night Fish Fry is a short stroll away, as are horse-back riding and snorkeling at the reef

Fantastic Rental - Best value on the island

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 recently rented Bijou for a week and could not have dreamed of a better place for the price. We were honestly skeptical to rent based on the price and could not be happier with what this property provides. Even though it is located in a condo complex it is extremely private and we hardly saw or heard anybody all week. Additionally the furnishings on the inside were well done and comfortable. The kitchen was well equipt however we chose not to cook in during the week. The property is well maintained and very clean when we arrived.

I feel the best part of this property is the location. There are a couple of very good restuarants within walking distance. Unfortunately the Green Bean has closed otherwise your morning coffee would have been out our front door. You are far enough away from the "busy" of Grace Bay area but close enough to utilize the restaurants and shopping. You are walking distance to the hidden snorkeling gem of Smith's Reef where you can snorkel off the beach and not see any other snorkelers. We did rent a car which allowed us to see the entire island and access to the Grace Bay resorts area.

Bijou provide our family a great home for the week and when we return to the island it will definitely be in consideration for our accomodations, thank you for sharing your property.

Comfortable and relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

We have now stayed at this property for a month each of the past four years, and we’ll continue to reserve here as long as we can for a number of reasons. It's aptly named as "Bijou" as it is a bit of a hidden jewel in Turtle Cove. The house is very comfortable and well-suited for four guests. The space is bright and airy, with two separate bedrooms and bathrooms upstairs and a tastefully appointed main floor with open living room, dining area, and kitchen. The kitchen is well-organized for cooking if that is appealing, and there are a number of excellent restaurants within walking distance for meals out. We’ve enjoyed Baci, Mango Reef and The Naughty Gull over and over again, without tiring of them. The pool is just steps away from the small, private garden outside the screened-in porch at the back, which provides a breezy and pleasant space for dining or relaxing. The owners have made an effort to ensure that everything needed for an enjoyable stay is available: beach towels, chairs and umbrella; a barbecue; information about local restaurants; and helpful notes about activities in the area. A car is useful for trips to beaches around the island and to Regent Village, where there are shops and restaurants in abundance. We’ve explored other accommodations on the island, but have found nothing as conveniently located or as effectively set-up as this property. We’d recommend it without reservation to any visitors looking for a relaxing setting from which to explore Providenciales. We’ll certainly be looking forward to another stay there.

Definitely worth it

  • 5 of 5

I have never been to the Island. My wife and I decided to take the kids for a vacation. I saw the price of the hotels and was sticker shocked. I looked into VRBO and found this terrific townhouse for my family and I. When we arrived we were greeted by the management team and they proceeded to show us the entire home and its amenities. They also left us an instructions manual for the home and the island. The home was extremely clean and everything worked​. It is well maintained. We put everything into good use including the kitchen and utensils. They seem to be very well stocked as we needed nothing. The townhouse had a pool that was to be shared with the other renters in the community (whom we never saw at the pool) which gave it a very private feel. The air conditioning froze us to death at night and there was no need to use it during the day conserving energy. There's always a breeze in that Island and all we did was open the doors and turn on the fans and the house felt cool during the day. The beaches are extremely beautiful lacking nothing. No beach in the island as private so we went to all of them and enjoyed every single one as they all have their own attributes. We were only minutes away from wherever we wanted to go. The townhouses located perfectly in the island. We had our own parking space. We heard no noise at night as it seems to be well insulated. I will say that the master bed was a bit hard but it did have a pillow top sheet that made it feel good enough to sleep on. I fell in love with the home and the island and I will definitely recommend that someone enjoys the same. My kids as well enjoyed it very much. My family will definitely consider staying there again and we hope to do so soon.

Nice Location

  • 3 of 5

Spacious town home with nice amenities near quiet beaches. Canadian greeter was incredibly biased against Dominicans, Bahamians and Hatians. Her vocal distaste for them made the welcome oddly uncomfortable. Loved the pool and the extra baskets of sunscreen, aloe etc. We were charged for using the AC which is definitely needed in August but the charge was quite reasonable. Less than $100 for a week stay so it was not as costly as they advertised which was great. Loved being able to walk to Simone's restaurant. I would have given this 5 stars but the mattress in the master suite was rock hard. We had stiffness, aches and pains daily. We actually looked around for a mattress topper and bought a bottle of pain reliever because it was that uncomfortable. Mattresses in the 2nd bedroom were great. So the kids slept well. When we asked for a solution to the concrete like mattress we were told our view of the mattress was "odd" which isn't the way to manage a request like that. We are used to a very high-end mattress with memory foam. So if you are used to a very firm, spring mattress you might be okay with it. Also we are GenXers so maybe younger people won't have issues. It just made the stay quite challenging for us. I learned a valuable lesson to really inquire about the mattress on future rentals and / or bring a mattress topper. The bathrooms and kitchen were nice. We felt safe the entire time. The rest of the home was very comfy. We rented a car, which I highly recommend. We loved going to the Tikki restaurant nearby.

Owner's Response: Good afternoon and my apologies for the late reply, but I was out of country with little access to internet. First, I'd like to thank you for your kind words about the property and our incredible country. They were much appreciated. As to your comments about Gail making you uncomfortable, with respect, I do not know what lead you to that conclusion, but your impression is false. I have worked with her for over 20 years and she is beloved by staff (Haitians and Dominicans) and guests in particular. She was extremely shocked and dismayed at your comments. As to air con charges, it appears that you were surprised to have to pay. You will note that it is clearly marked on the website that air con usage is optional and is a separate charge. This was also noted on the booking agreement you completed and signed. As to my discussions with you about the bed, you did indeed make some comments that I found odd. You insisted that the bed must be at least 10-20 years old despite the fact that I told you that the owners are new and that they redid the entire townhouse some two years ago, including top of the line mattresses. We have received nothing but compliments about them. Perhaps the owners needs - that's the bed they use - are different from yours. And as per your request to replace the bed, I would be hard pressed to convince an owner that their brand new $5000 mattress (things are very expensive to land here) should be replaced. If, as you say, you slept poorly, my sincerest apologies. I will note that I returned home to Provo 4 days ago and as a result of your comments, I spent three nights sleeping at Bijou. With no disrespect, I am 62 and I slept like a baby! So it seems then, that this all comes down to a matter of taste. Again, thanks for your kind words and I wish you the best. Basia

Beautiful home on a beautiful island

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently returned from our forth trip to the TCI in the past 20 months and are busy planning a return within the next 6 months. The Turks and ?Caicos provides every thing that one could wish for ; white sands, crystal clear water, long long beaches and fabulous restaurants. Our most recent trip took us to the secluded location of Turtle Cove, a short 10 minute bike ride from the hotels of Regent Village on Grace Bay. We stayed at Bijou, a beautiful town house just minutes from the beach. Bijou, is a very spacious home with 2 large bed and bath rooms, a well appointed kitchen and a generous and comfortable living space. It is tastefully decorated and provides all the things necessary to enjoy a home away from home experience. Bijou backs on to a very quiet pool area with plenty of space to relax at the end of the day. The owners of the home have gone out of their way to provide every thing to enhance one's stay. The most enjoyable aspect of our stay was the atmosphere and experience that Bijou provides. It is seconds away from some of the best restaurants on the island and steps away from The Green Bean, the best coffee place on the island without question. Rent a car and some bikes from Scooter Bob's and enjoy the hospitality and friendly service that comes with it! Walk to happy hour in the Cove from 5-7 and watch the sunset from the dock. Bijou is centrally located and it is easy to travel to other parts of the island. Scooter Bob will even provide you with a car on Middle and North Caicos, a short ferry ride from Provinciales. Walk for hours on the endless beaches that the TCI has to offer. We have stayed at some of the island's best hotels in the past and Bijou offers the best value for your money. It is ideal for 4 people but not too big for a getaway for 2. Enjoy the friendliness of the locals, especially in the surrounding restaurants. Lovely people! Look no further. I'm glad that we didn't. Enjoy!

Fantastic Island Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent a thoroughly enjoyable week in this lovely home. From the moment we walked in the door and looked out to the garden with its palm tree and lush greenery, I knew I had found the perfect spot. The layout is generous easily accommodated the three adults in our group.

The pool is a short stroll away and if you prefer sand between your toes, a little longer walk will take you to the beach, which is gorgeous.

As a group we enjoy cooking together, and there was no problem doing that in the kitchen here. Lots of work space for all the "cooks", lovely dinnerware, plenty of utensils and pots and pans. The BBQ got plenty of use too!

There are lots of cozy places to plop down and read a good book or indulge in an afternoon nap. The screened porch was fabulous for morning coffee, afternoon quiet time and evening cocktails.

Upstairs, the bedrooms are split front and back for privacy, and each has its own spacious bath. The somewhat larger master also has a balcony overlooking the garden with a peak at the ocean.

On the days when we didn't feel like cooking, there were several lovely waterside restaurants within walking distance. And for dessert, the gelato shop across the road was perfect.

All in all, Bijou offered everything we needed for a rejuvenating week in the beautiful Turks and Caicos. We would definitely stay here again. And the great part is you can travel light. Bring your tooth brush, bathing suit and some casual summer clothes and that's all you need to enjoy a holiday.
