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.

Beautiful home, fantastic kitchen, tropical grounds,

Our family of 9 (all adults) had a wonderful time that will be a lasting memory. We hope to return some day.

Perfect week at Villa Tropica celebrating my parents

In the fall of 2014 we asked my parents what they would like to do to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary in April 2016 as all of us "kids" are spread out across Canada.My parents said a family vacation and the planning started from there.Over the next month or so we narrowed down our choice to Turks and Caicos Islands.

I came across Dany and Lucie's listing for Villa Tropica and knew we had found the perfect place. I spent months emailing back and forth with Lucie and Dany and they were always quick to reply and guide me in the right direction. We went ahead and put our deposit down in Dec. 2014 for our specific week in April 2016. We were a group of 8 ranging in age from 47-74.

Upon our arrival at the villa we were greeted by Robert the property manager and Nicole the housekeeper as we had made arrangements for Nicole to prepare some some food for us upon our arrival until we had time to get to the grocery store.Our meal of jerk chicken, mixed salad and a fruit plate along with some cold bottles of water was perfect. The jerk chicken was so good that we talked about it for days and family members kept asking if there were any leftovers.

The home was extremely clean and the furniture and the decor were beautiful.All of our family members loved their rooms. The gardens and grounds were beautiful and if we weren't at the beach we were in the pool or enjoying all of the outdoor sitting areas.

The beds were extremely comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. We used Provo Connections Taxi and Tours for all of our transportation needs while on the island and they helped make our week spectacular.

We walked to the beach multiple times a day and the provided bicycles were also used.We wanted to do something special to celebrate my parent's anniversary so Dany and Lucie put us in touch with private chef Mark Clayton. We emailed back and forth for months and got to chose our special menu. Our dinner was spectacular that we had in the formal dining room.Chef Mark cooked for us and his wonderful wife Cady served the meal to us.

We had a very special week together and are hoping to return sometime soon as Villa Tropica exceeded our expectations. Robert was wonderful to deal with. He even went out of his way to lend us his crystal wine glasses for our special dinner as the villa only had three assorted ones to use.

I would highly recommend Villa Tropica to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing , clean place to stay as a larger group.

A special week spent at Villa Tropica....
