Fodor's Expert Review Harbour Club Villas

36 Turtle Tail Dr., Turtle Tail, Providenciales, Turtle Tail, Providenciales TKCA 1ZZ, Turks and Caicos Islands See on Map

Although not on the beach, this cozy arrangement of villas is set next to a marina, making it an excellent base for those budget conscious travellers wishing to scuba dive, bonefish, or enjoy that quieter-style vacation. Harbour Club consists of six one-bedroom cottages dotted along a ridgeline overlooking both the beauty of the Caicos Banks in one direction and inland Flamingo Lake in the other. Each unit is simple and clean, bursting with Caribbean color; consisting of a kitchen, sitting room, and bathroom, all that one really needs on an island vacation. With the addition of a pullout sofa bed, four can share the unit comfortably. You can also expect cable TV, air-conditioning in the bedrooms, and Wi-Fi in each unit. The hosts go out of their way to please, providing complimentary services like booking car rentals and stocking the fridge. In the evening, divers and fishing enthusiasts gather by the pool to share a meal after barbecuing. You may start off as a guest, but you're likely to leave as a friend - and feel like family. And if you’re thinking of planning a family reunion or a small, intimate wedding at a casual venue, Harbour Club is perfect.

YOU SHOULD KNOW Harbour Club may not be on the north shore, however it is only a 5-minute drive away from the bustle of world famous Grace Bay Beach.

Each guest cottage is equipped with a full kitchen, indoor dining option, and a private stone patio with table for that morning coffee overlooking the lake. In addition, a shaded tiki hut is located at the end of the pool, making it the perfect place for an ice cold beer, a bite to eat - or a barbecue as an outdoor grill is available. The main supermarket is located only a five minute-drive away, offering a full deli with hot meal choices. Bob's Bar is right next door at Southside Marina, serving excellent fare throughout the week, and a number of restaurants are within a 5-minute drive from Harbour Club.

LOCATION

Getting Around

Although Harbour Club is centrally located and only a 5-minute drive to Grace Bay, a rental car is highly recommended when staying at the resort.

Restaurants

No food service is available on site. Guests have the benefit of a full kitchen in their cottage, and may enjoy a wide range of restaurants within a short drive from their front door. In addition, Southside Marina organizes a "pot luck" night where boaters and local residents get together for a social night of grilling and sharing. Bob's Bar is also located at the marina, with drinks and food served seven nights a week.

Bars

Although there is no food service or bar on the property, the popular - yet quirky - Bob's Bar is right next door.

WHY WE LIKE IT

This is a great little resort, perfect for the budget conscious traveler and for those wishing a much quieter stay on the island of Providenciales. Located on the south side of Providenciales, overlooking Flamingo Lake, this cluster of tiny cottages is only minutes from the tourist hub of Grace Bay and all it has to offer.
