Villa and location rec for family

wE ARE 7 adults and 2 children under 2 years. Looking for a good spot June 22-29, 2013 that is right on the beach. I have looked at all areas, not sure what would be most perfect! Has anyone stayed at Alizee, 5 Turtles, Coconuts, Grace Bay villa, Oceanus? Or please rec anything you have loved!

5 turtles is Taylor bay, which is right next to Sapadilla Bay.
Grace Bay and Oceanus are technically in Turtle Cove, which has a rockier beach but does blend into Grace Bay, great for snorkel.

The other 2 are in Sapadilla Bay. Sapadilla and Taylor where made for toddlers. Shallow water, about knee high to ankle high, for hundreds of yards. Same with Taylor. Both bays are kids dreams.

Coconuts, I actually have viewed and know the owners, awesome. Highly recommended.

The others that are at TCvillas.com are also highly reputable, and while I haven't been inside the ones you mention, I have seen other properties they represent, and are extremely reputable and well maintained.

All the villas require transportation that you've mentioned. For restaurants, shopping, and sooner or later you need to spend time on a strip of Grace Bay, which is awesome.

All the villas you've mentioned are gorgeous.

For a map of providenciales, got to

WhereWhenHow.com. Click on maps. Will give you an idea as to the areas.

OK! Great info. Still undecided, but making progress.
Next question: aT Turtla COve area, I have been told to stay away from villas near the "cut" as the beach there not as good or something (maybe more traffic?). SO...Oceanus is sorta near, and the Grace Bay Villa further away. WHat's your opinion on that issue?

With the little kids, I personally would go for Sapadilla Bay instead.

All the beach area of Turtle Cove is rocky

The villas are gorgeous, but gear more to snorkel. Toddlers won't like it

the "cut" is the way into the marina for boats. so yes more traffic but not cars.
your kids will love taylor or sapadilla! sapadilla is better for adults as swimming depth water is not nearly as far out as from taylor.
