Excellent experience

Mary Ann S. Said...August 28th, 2016
This house has everything you could ask for! It's in a safe neighborhood, walking distance to the beach, clean, comfortable and roomy! Having wifi, Netflix, Roku was a plus! The Marina down the road has an excellent happy hour and downtown is a close 5 min drive.

The pool is awesome! We had fun experiencing the different lights of the pool. The house comes with Everything you need for a comfortable stay and cooking in, including a grill. Also comes with everything you need for the beach (chairs, umbrella, cooler). Also comes with bikes! Dany the owner is quick to respond to your emails and a pleasure to deal with.

Robert, the property manager is vivacious and super nice. He is so helpful and knowledgeable about the places to see and things to do on the island.

Highly recommend Villa Tropica and if you've never booked a VRBO before, do not be hesitant about Villa Tropica. They are very honest people!

Hi Mary, we are glad that you and your guests have enjoyed staying at Villa Tropica. The major reason why we bought that property is exactly what you have mentioned, the safety of being in the private area of Leeward and the proximity of Pelican beach.

Thank you so much for your review, we look forward to welcoming you again ! Dany, Lucie and all the team !

This Villa has it all!

Villa Tropica was an amazing vacation rental. Located just minutes from a beautiful beach that was almost private, it provided us with everything we needed for a great family vacation.

We had 7 travelers from ages 4-88 and everyone was pleased with this well equipped house. The bedrooms are large and most offer private bathrooms (2 bedrooms share a jack and Jill bathroom).

The kitchen is well equipped and had everything we needed to cook many meals in. In addition, the patio has a great Weber grill that we used often. The patio, gardens and outside pool area were amazing!

The kids and adults alike loved the lighted pool and pool deck. This house is gated and provides a security system. There is even a game room with a Foosball table and everything you need to enjoy the beach ( chairs, umbrellas, coolers, beach toys).

We could not have asked for a better beach rental and look forward to returning!

Thank you very much Michelle for your review. Personally, I think Pelican Beach is the most beautiful beach of the island, both for its fine sand and shallow turquoise water and especially for its peacefulness.

We are delighted that Villa Tropica was up to your expectations. Hope to see you soon!

Amazing House

Special Thanks to Robert and his wife they were very accommodating during our stay. Dan the owner was also very flexible as we had changed the numbers of guest a couple of times. The home was very clean and beautiful; well kept and updated appliances. I think our favorite place to eat was the Flamingo which is very close to the house.

The garden in the back is amazing along with the pool with its changing lights. The kids spent a lot of time in the pool and when they were not in the pool it was easy to keep them occupied with the Rocu boxes.

This is the perfect place for any family with kids or older relatives who may have difficulty getting around. If you are considering a home to rent on the island please consider this place!!

Amazing Week at Villa Tropica

From the time of arrival and being greeted by Robert until our departure he was always available for questions or issues that arose. He was very helpful pointing out all the great spots on the island on a map (bring a map from the airport for him to mark-up).

The villa is spectacular. We spent a lot of time making good use of the kitchen which is fully stocked with just about ever utensil, dishware, and kitchen appliance you may need. All the rooms are nice and clean. The beds are extremely comfortable, you will have no problem sleeping well after a long day in the sun. The pool situated in the middle of the villas gardens makes it feel very remote and secluded for added privacy.

Pool lights are very neat as well! There are quite a few tvs throughout the home that have roku devices already logged in to Netflix so you will always have something for you or the kids to watch during the downtime. There's a large bookshelf with plenty of selection and a few card/board games as well.

The home is in the safest part of the island and has a gated access (Robert will give you the code and the clicker upon arrival) and an alarm system so no need to worry. There is parking for up to 4 cars behind the gate for large groups. The house also comes with plenty of leftover sunscreen, bug spray, aloe Vera, and bug candles/wicks. Now for the best part.

The home comes with 5 really nice beach chairs that fold up and have backpack straps as well as multiple light umbrellas, coolers, bikes, beach floaties, footballs, and kids beach toys. You have everything you need to enjoy the wonderful Pelican beach is the extension of the world renowned Grace Bay beach and is the closest beach to the villa (3 minute walk if that).

This beach is the most amazing beach I have ever seen (better then grace bay, long bay, and many others I have visited throughout the carribean and Mexico). You will get a better breeze here then on Grace Bay with all their high rise resorts. The water is like bath water and we would just float for hours. There is very few groups that visit this beach so you feel like you have a few miles of beach front to yourself!

Things to Do: Pelican Beach Caicos DreamTours Snorkel & Conch Cruise Long bay beach (kitesurfers & more shade) Local Casino Golf Scuba diving/snorkeling Fishing Restaurants: The Flamingo Cafe Las Brisas Turks Kebabs Coco Bistro (need a reservation in advance) All in all our stay was fantastic and hope to be back soon!!!

Awesome Getaway

We spent a week at villa tropica and loved it. The house and pool are both very large and can easily accommodate 10 people. The kitchen is fully stocked and all the seasonings were a huge plus for cooking in.

The beach right down the street(pelican i believe) was the best beach we visited even better than the highly rated Grace bay and one other we visited. Grace Bay beach has resorts and lined with umbrellas, passing boats, parasailers, paddle boarders, sailers, etc. But Pelican bay beach is calm, quiet, no waves, no resorts or beach front houses. the perfect beach.

The service at every restaurant was very VERY slow so be patient if you visit restaurants. We visited the casino twice and it was very fun and safe. Mixed drinks or frozen drinks are a minimum of $10 anywhere you go and the grocery store can be expensive but is wasnt as bad as we expected. Beer for local Turks head is $45 for 24 and liquor is marked up 100% of the price in America.

We rented a car and it is definitely necessary to get around as the closest hub of restaurants and stores are just our of bicycle range. We rented a "character car" from grace bay rentals which was $250 for the week and its nothing special but a clean old car that gets the job done. There are beach chairs and umbrellas and with the house so it was nice to have everything needed for a day at the beach.

Robert was great for check in and always available if needed for any questions. We did the caicos dream tour and everyone in our group enjoyed it. it was $99 and they take you to a reef to snorkel and there is alot to see including the 2 five to 8 feet reef sharks we saw.

I'd highly recommend the snorkel dream tour. Everything from booking, payment, and check out was quite easy and I would love to return some day.
