Well located for grocery shopping and local eateries, and just a short drive from Grace Bay Beach, Venetian Ridge Vacation Villas is a no-frills, wallet-friendly sleep that’s geared toward families and couples alike. This inland collection of condo-style villas makes guests feel like homeowners, with the added convenience of an on-site concierge office. The beautifully landscaped property also features special touches like a portable barbecue, beach chairs and sun umbrellas for use during your stay, and a spa pavilion and pool are in the works for late 2014. At 587 square feet, Deluxe Two-Bedroom Villas are on the simple side, but they’re great for families, featuring a full kitchen and dining area (which will come in handy, since there’s no restaurant on-site).
In the Area
You’ll need a rental car to make the most of Providenciales Island’s stunning beaches, but Venetian Ridge is just a short drive from the white sand and turquoise waters of Grace Bay. Taylor Bay and Chalk Sound are farther afield but well worth the journey. Swing your clubs at the Provo Golf Club; the challenging and beautifully landscaped course is the only one in Turks and Caicos (look out for flamingos in the lakes). Hungry? Hit Da Conch Shack, which, while a bit on the touristy side, is a must for mollusk lovers with such offerings as conch salad, conch fritters, conch chowder and more. Or ditch your pool lounger and trot along Long Bay Beach on horseback; it’s one of the best ways to take in the vista of white sand and turquoise water. Riders of all skill levels can participate; long pants are strongly suggested.
How to Get There
We stayed here for 8 nights and loved it! If you’re looking for quiet and quaint with a friendly staff this is your place! We stayed with our 2 kids ages 10 and 12. The villa was a good size for the 4 of us. We rented a car for our whole stay. The beach is very close. And the beach butler Osnor is THE BEST!!! The pool is small but very nice!
This was an excellent family vacation. Our villa was small but very clean and surrounded by a beautiful variety of trees that gave us privacy. All kitchen utensils were included, as well as a cooler for the beach, which we used a few times for lunch.
The pool and lounge area were very relaxing and beautifully lit at night, and the beach was just a few minutes car ride away. We used a rental car mostly, but a shuttle was also provided when we needed it.
The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Jan emailed us before we arrived, to make sure we had our car rental set up. Our butler, Osnor, showed us around on our first day and explained everything thoroughly. He was available by phone (also provided), as well as on the beach, where he had our chairs and umbrella set up and waiting for us.
Both Osnor and Weenie booked reservations to the restaurants of our choice, gave us recommendations, and answered our questions. Overall, everyone, including security and maintenance, were very friendly and offered plenty of help.
Definitely would recommend and hope to visit again in the future.
The villa’s were small but very clean and comfortable and furnished with everything we needed. The staff (especially Jan, Weenie and Osnar) were genuinely very friendly and went out of their way to make sure you enjoyed your stay. Jan helped us by booking a kayaking tour which also was wonderful. We rented a car as we like to explore so we did not use the free shuttle. However the beach site at Bight Park where they have umbrellas and lounges set up is beautiful. The beach area is not crowded and water is amazingly clear and clean. And a short walk to a beach restaurant and bar named Somewhere. Kokomo is centrally located and everything was a short drive so touring the island was easy. The place was pretty and the grounds keepers were also cordial and answered questions about the garden. It was a pleasure to stay here.
I recently stayed at this lovely resort with 9 of my friends and the experience was outstanding. The resort was beautiful, quiet, well kept. The staff was attentive, helpful, caring and all around wonderful people. The villas were well organized with everything we needed (dishes, cutlery, glasses, coffee maker, towels, cell phone, cooler for the beach, beach chairs etc.) they had thought of everything. We needed only think of relaxing. The staff were always ready to assist with any question about the island and were outstanding hosts. A special shout out to their security team who were always friendly, happy and on guard. I will definitely be back and highly recommend this resort. Happy holidays to you all.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. I recommend to get a rental because the taxi drivers will rip you off. At the hotel they will recommend you a taxi driver named Rico because they say he is very professional and the best, however that’s not true at all. DO NOT get that driver because he will charge you whatever he wants. Besides that the resort is prettt decent.
