What Visitors Are Saying | Vacation Rental Villa | Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands, B.W.I
Your input is important to us. Please provide your valuable feedback. Here are some testimonials from our clients:
Being an owner of another Villa on this island I was disappointed when my extended family decided to visit and my home was booked. But the owners of Moonshadow had a vacancy and welcomed our family with open arms. I was so thrilled with the beauty of this property. The home was impeccably clean and the owners provided us with everything we needed. From all the floats and coolers we needed to washer, dryer and plenty of refrigerator space. The home was so comfortable but I will say we lived outside most of the time, enjoying the pool and spending time in the ocean. On a windy day we just let our floats take us over to Taylor Bay Beach and then walked back home. Every evening was a delightful dinner in the screen in porch where dinner always included much laughter and beautiful sunsets. I can't say enough good things about this Villa and location. The owners were gracious and welcoming and their management team and maids top notch. Thank for the memories.Recommended for: Sightseeing, Girls Getaway, Adventure Seekers, Families with Teenagers.

We were three families coming together at this gem of a property on Turks & Caicos, in order to celebrate my sister's wedding and share Christmas together. I have booked homes for vacations previously, but the level of attention and sincere care shown us by owner Lana was unparalleled, as was the beauty of the property. I couldn't have been happier with our stay and highly recommend the villa. There is plenty of room to spread out in this villa, so that each guest can have both socializing and private space. In addition to the main living area and a kitchen with all the cooking amenities you will need, there is an upstairs lounge area, the deck & pool area, and a spacious screened-in porch with eating area, sofa & chairs and a television. Although we had no problem with bugs during our December stay, it was peace of mind in the evenings and early morning to have my children playing with their toys outdoors in a screened in area. The beds were comfortable and the air conditioners worked very well, which may seem like a little detail, but means a lot to people like myself who enjoy sleeping in cold temperatures! This home is just a few minutes' walk from Taylor Bay, which is a spectacular, non crowded beach perfect for a family with young children like ours. The house provides folding chairs and plenty of beach towels for your use. Taylor Bay's waters are the most beautiful sparkling turquoise, the sand is a brilliant white, and the waters are very shallow, perfect for wading and kayaking. The house offers kayaks with life jackets, and it is an easy 3 minute ride around the corner to the bay. The beach was so gorgeous that my sister chose the spot for her intimate wedding ceremony, rather than some of the more well known spots near Grace Bay. In addition to the nearby beach, there are beautiful clear waters right at the villa's dock where guests can snorkel and swim. There is a well stocked grocery store nearby the villa, but prices are steep so try to pack what pantry items you can. During our stay we had a dinner at the villa catered by Caicos Catering which was a splurge but a wonderful way to have a fabulous family meal right by the villa's own pool, taking in that gorgeous ocean view. The house is very clean, and a mid week cleaning was provided for us and very appreciated. Lana, thank you so much for opening your home up for us. We had the vacation to remember for a lifetime!

This is our second trip to Turks and Caicos from California. We much prefer a rental house or condo over a resort or hotel. We like the flexibility of cooking our own meals or going out if the mood hits us. We often travel with other couples and families so a house like Villa Moonshadow is ideal. As good as the photos are, they don't adequately describe how gorgeous it is there. The interior is an open plan with adequate ceiling fans and A/C for warm ocean breezes or cooling off after a long day in the sun. The pool and deck look like they have recently been resurfaced and much of the interior, including the bathrooms, has been updated as well. The property is surrounded by tall trees and other vegetation and it is very private. We like to snorkel and swim which is made easy by the villa's private dock. There are also three kayaks to use for no additional charge. We kayaked around the corner and spent the day at a beautiful white sand beach with just of handful of other people passing by. It's a refreshing change from crowded tourist beaches. The place is super-clean, well-maintained and the owners were responsive to our questions before we secured our vacation dates. We'll be back!

Perfect Family Vacation
Left on Aug 1, 2016 for a stay in Jul 2016 Villa Moonshadow is the perfect venue for a family vacation. Our family of ten traveled from CA and MD to bask in the beauty of Turks & Caicos and relax in the comforts of Villa Moonshadow -- truly the perfect home away from home. Lana is an exceptional hostess and focused on our every need, from helping with pre-travel planning to insuring our up-most comfort during our stay. The little details did not go unnoticed when it came to our comfort. Villa Moonshadow feels more like a home than a rental. It is obvious that it has been the site of family gatherings and a hub for relaxation. It's oceanfront view is breathtaking and the cliffs are stunning. It is only a short 3 minute walk to Taylor Beach -- perhaps my new favorite beach of all time! The property managers, Claudius and Donny, were very attentive and timely to our needs. Donny met us at the airport and gave us a tour of the Villa. He was even so kind as to deliver bug spray and citronella candles when I mentioned pesky mosquitos. Villa Moonshadow is a perfect location if you want a safe and secure area, away from the commercialized Grace Bay area. We also recommend M&J Charters for a day or 1/2 day customized day on the water. We explored the area, visited Iguana Island,snorkeled the reefs, swam with sharks and dolphins, ate lunch on a most gorgeous secluded Pine Cay beach and watched the sunset. Captain Jacket and his crew were outstanding.

My husband, our 3 kids (age 22, 19 and 16) and my sister's family (husband/wife and 3 kids 19, 16 and 10) all vacationed for a week at the end of June 2015. We were just telling other friends how wonderful our vacation was and this reminded me that I never wrote a review! We absolutely LOVED everything about the Villa Moonshadow and everyone associated with the Villa. To begin with Lana, the owner, could not have been more wonderful in answering all of my husband's questions when we were inquiring about the rental. This hospitality continued throughout the time leading up to our vacation and during our vacation. Lana was always available to us and it was evident that she would do everything she could to ensure that our stay in her home was memorable. Well...as we think about planning another vacation, we keep going back to how wonderful our vacation at Turks & Caicos was last year! Villa Moonshadow is spectacular! The accommodations in the home are first class and 10 of us all had lovely bedrooms, the views are spectacular, the proximity to Taylor Bay is perfect, the snorkeling, kayaking and swimming was great! We loved being on this part of the island and going to Grace Bay for visits. We rented a van and all crammed in one car...and survived! Claudius was also wonderful when he greeted us at the airport and was charming and friendly as he got us to the villa and settled in. The only glitch we had was taking the kayaks around the bend of Taylor Bay - be careful in the afternoon as the current makes the trip back very difficult. Two boys (late teen and early 20's) did it but they reported that it was pretty tough! However, I'm sure when we return they will do it again - just not recommended for the younger ones! Other fun things we did...chartered a boat for our family - met them at Grace Bay. Super fun day! We ate dinner our twice, but mostly enjoyed eating and grilling at home. Caicos Grill was fabulous! We also went to The Parish Church of St. Monica - an Anglican congregation. It was amazing! The people were so friendly! We did have to leave after 2 hours (LOL!) because we Episcopalians from USA are used to 1 hours services! Also, the church really doesn't update their website so we suggest going by the church early on Sunday to find out what time it begins! Our family sincerely hopes to return to Villa Moonshadow as our Turks and Caicos vacation was one of our very best vacations!

Had a fantastic week at Villa Moonshadow in April. If you rent this place u will not be disappointed. Lana was very responsive, and Claudius was a great help at the car rental. I very much appreciated the owner Lana checking in with me during the week to make sure everything was ok. Would definitely recommend this villa to others. Almost forgot, about the 2 minute walk to Taylor Bay!

I stayed with a group of 4 friends the week of Feb 20th to the 27th. Moonshadow is fantastic! It had everything we needed and was such a relaxing place to enjoy! I can't find one negative thing about the place! It's a great location. I would definitely rent the property again. I loved everything about it! Thanks so much for a wonderful week at your property.

My four girlfriends and I had a trip of a lifetime at Villa Moonshadow!! The Villa was even better than we anticipated. Everything that we needed was there. We had a wonderful property manager, Donnie who took care of anything we needed and was always available to answer our questions!! I would definitely return to this neighborhood and Villa. Taylor Bay beach was awesome too!!!

Lana, the owner, was very helpful with suggesting a car rental company, Grace Bay rentals. Donnie, the property manager met us at the airport and helped transport luggage to the house which is only about 10 minutes from the airport, He also quickly took care of a few small problems....repairing a fan and light fixture and bringing a larger coffee pot when we needed it. The house is wonderful, with everything you could need and the most gorgeous view...situated between Sapodilla Bay and Taylor Bay. The beach is just a very short walk down the street and was never crowded . The sand is the softest I have ever experienced and the water is a beautiful turquoise. We used the kayaks provided at the house,, enjoyed the pool and many hours on the deck overlooking the water . Loved the screened porch area when the mosquitos were active. A great home in a beautiful place....away from the resorts and hotels

Our group of 8- four couples- spent a wonderful week at Moonshadow. From the time of our rental reservation to our departure everything was done to make our trip go smoothly. Lana was very helpful with our planning, Donnie met us at the airport to help transport bags, and responded to anything we needed during the week. One of our group had to see a physician while we were there, and he recommended a clinic- Associated Medical Practices, where we we treated with great care. The house has everything you might need. Accommodations were clean ...no problems. The pool, the beautiful views, the kayaks, and comfort of the villa made our trip a memorable one. Would highly recommend and hope to get back there one day.
