“Excellent place with great accomodations!!!”
Reviewed 4 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

This is a great place if you dont want to be on the touristy/family section of Turks & Caicos. The beach is smaller and less populated and you dont have to deal with people asking for paragliding or banana boats.

It is a PERFECT spot for kite boarding. Long Bay Beach is world famous as a perfect spot for kiteboarding. This is a great place to stay if you are ready to launch and have a great time during your stay.

The actual villas themselves are great. Big tvs, a pool, amenities for the beach, great pool chairs, hammock, and a wonderful view. The kitchen is fully equipped with great appliances. On top of that the staff is very friendly and helpful and will happily help you out with any problems.

Enjoy the stay!

I spent a week with my wife and 2 more couples. It was our first time in TCI, and when we arrived it exceeded our expectations. Everything was perfect and clean, very modern, very good taste. We had the main villa and one studio. The rooms were big and nice, each one with a bathroom. The first floor was really big, with a huge kitchen (my wife loves cooking) and a livingroom, TV, etc. and a stunning view. There is also a very nice terrace. Wi-fi worked perfectly. Each villa (or studio) has its own locker with beach chairs, inflatable staff for the beach, etc. We had also available a stand up board for us. The swimming pool was amazing.
The beach is just at five minute-walk from the villa. It's really close although when you have to take big stuff (such as kiteboarding gear and the SUP), can be a bit tiresome. The hostess was also very nice and always worried for our well-being. Totally recommendable.

“Boutique villa perfect for kiters and divers”
Reviewed 30 September 2015 for a stay in April 2015

person found this review helpful

Beautiful, high quality villas and grounds, in an excellent location for kiteboarding. Short walk to the beach. Storage shed for kiting gear. Hoses for washing sand off gear. Nice landscaping (under development). Inviting patio area around the small pool, and great upper deck area for lounging, and enclosed upper deck for dining.

Clean, quality minimalist design. On a previous trip we stayed at the Gansevoort, and we felt this property had the same feel in terms of design and quality (of course without the large pool and restaurant of that larger property).

Awesome location for kiting, short walk to the beach on a meandering path through the brush, 5 min walk. I left my kite pumped up at the beach with my gear and would pop back in for lunch. You're right on Long Bay Beach, great location for kiting.

It is also a great location for diving, as this property is closer to the two marinas where most of the dive boats leave than the main hotels along Grace Bay.

The property is also great for non-kiters; Long Bay Beach is quiet and relaxing (and shallow) for others who want to just sit on the beach, and the pool, patio and decks offer a variety of places to relax.

Great place to bring family or group of friends as well, and very good kitchen (well equipped with prep utensils, quality service ware, appliances, massive island) and living room area for entertaining or taking turns making meals. Kitchen (size, equipment, dishes, etc.) was better than at Gansevoort. Knives were dull, as at every vacation rental everywhere in the world. ;-) I now travel with a sharpener.

The only drawback is that you definitely require a car at this location, there is nothing within walking distance. But it is close for driving to all the restaurants in Grace Bay, and the grocery store there (5 - 10 min), and 10 - 15 min to the larger IGA.

Well maintained and cleaned, and very responsive and accessible property manager.

Would highly recommend. We are planning to return this spring and bring some extended family.

“The Ultimate Getaway.”
Reviewed 16 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We have stayed at Windchaser twice now and plan to return again. The setup is currently comprised of 4 "villas" with more now being built on adjacent land nearby. Each villa has a main space that includes two spacious bedrooms, each with private bath, on the ground level with sliding glass doors to the pool and patio. A stairway leads up one level to a large living area with deck and a great kitchen with a huge centre island. This second floor space is large and open. The feeling is airy and contemporary.

Each air conditioned villa also has two "studios" one on each side of the "Main" space, on the ground floor. The occupants of these studios would share the pool and patio with the main space when rented out individually. The studios can also be annexed to the main space, should additional bedrooms be desired, such that a group, a family of 4 couples could share the whole villa together.

I love how clean the villas are. The kitchen is a pleasure to work in. There is exactly what is needed and all is stored exactly where it needs to be, in an uncluttered and logical way. Everything works and is in good condition. There are actually GOOD knives with a shapening steel. This is amazing to someone who has become accustomed to carrying her own chef's knife on vacations. Condos never have this, and I've been to many.

The upper level offers views to Long Bay Beach which is about 500 feet away. Between the villas and the ocean, there is an area of natural low-lying vegetation which I believe has been earmarked as a conservation area. Through this, Windchaser has carved a walking path with concrete tiles that makes beach access quite easy.

Long Bay Beach is a sight to behold! Chances are you won't find a soul there most of the time. If you do, it will be kite boarders sailing gracefully over the water nearby. Long Bay Beach is slowly becoming the capital of kite boarding but since the level of development on this beach is still very low, the kiteboarding setup is still very casual and layed back.

I hardly want to tell you just how beautiful this place is, largely because, aside from it's natural beauty, a good part of it's charm is it's nearly unused, unknown and undevelopped nature. The water is light turquoise as far as the eye can see. There are no coral outcrops anywhere and you can walk into the water for a very long distance and still have water just to your waist. The waves are nearly non- existent and the water is increadibly warm. This beach is safe for children and for anyone who might find cold ocean water hard to get into.

One last word about Windchaser, Long Bay Beach and Providenciales: the whole island is very small. You need to rent a car unless you are happy with staying on Grace Bay for the entire duration of your vacation. Grace Bay Car Rentals is a good option we have found. With a car, you can go from one end of the island to the other in about 20 minutes. Grace Bay, across the island, the tourist area where there are many shops, gourmet grocery stores and restaurants, is literally 5 minutes by car from Windchaser. At first, theses distances seem longer as you learn the roads, the roundabouts and the map, but once you have travelled the road a few times, the island starts feeling very small and you know your way everywhere.

There aren't that many places to see: check Bugaloo a casual restaurant on the finest stretch of silky sand beach I have ever seen and the fish market nearby (where you can buy freshly caught fish, probably grouper or snapper or lobster in the late afternoon). While out that way drive along Chalk Sound for surreal water views. You might also enjoy Thursday nights at Bythe Park on Grace Bay, a local venue where restaurants cook some of their best local dishes and live music will have people dancing by dark. Blue Haven is a nice resort where you can go for a drink or a meal. It's really only 10 minutes from Windchaser once you figured out the way.

Windchaser then is an "out of the way " spot that offers ultimate peace and tranquility on an island where peace and tranquility is pretty much everywhere. The Villas are extremely well managed, clean and well equipped. Long Bay Beach is a must see but, having now told you about it, please don't go all at once because then I will no longer be able to find room for myself. ;-)

“Chase the Wind in Paradise”
Reviewed 6 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Windchaser Villas are a set of beautiful, modern villas with private pools and access to a virtually deserted strip of Caribbean beach on Long Bay. The wind is perfect for windsurfing and kite-boarding. The beach is also perfect for a quiet swim!

The villas are fully equipped with everything you'll need to make it home very quickly. They are spacious and well designed. We loved our stay!

“Amazing villa on a beautiful, private beach, perfect for all ages!”
Reviewed 21 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We traveled as 2 families for the first time to Turks and Caicos. The villa FAR exceeded our expectations. It slept all 11 of us very comfortably. They even provided us with 2 blow up mattresses to accommodate some of our children. The private pool and location on the beach was just wonderful!! The villa was wonderfully layed out and fully stocked from the kitchen to beach gear. Plenty of beach towels provided and beach chairs and umbrellas. Even an ice chest and wheel barrow to wheel all your gear down to the beach. My only suggestions would be to make one of the bedrooms a bunk room to accommodate several children, and to have black out shades to roll down in the bedroom windows...the sun comes up very early and it is bright and shiny in the bedrooms! Overall, it was a magnificent place and we can't wait to go back!!! A+++

Thank you Kate for this amazing review, we are so happy to read that you and the entire group enjoyed it so much. We are taking good note of your comment on black-out curtains...it does get bright early on and we are working on changing the curtains to provide more darkness in the bedrooms. We hope to see you again soon!
