By now, many of us know about Turks and Caicos, and how it has become a preferred playground of the famous and the discerning travelers “in the know”. A truly beautiful place, it was only a sleepy little Caribbean island, relatively unknown until the 1960s, when it was first discovered by the then “jet set”. Families like the Roosevelts and DuPonts stumbled on it and began making overtures to the local government, hoping to get permission to begin developing small areas of the pristine wilderness.
They succeeded and though development moved very slowly, things began to really boom in the Grace Bay beach area during the 1990s. It was at this time that the condominium-style resorts first appeared and names like Parrot Cay and Amanyara began to help spread the word about Turks and Caicos as a premiere holiday destination.
By the time of the worldwide real estate and financial crash of 2008 occurred, there were many individual homes and condo complexes on the island. However, that turbulent period did halt development for the next few years. By 2012, though, Turks and Caicos had more than recovered and was already back above its previous peak levels.
The problem with the options for buyers was that they had to choose between two to three-bedroom condominium properties, and free-standing homes. The former meant living in a condominium-type complex and the latter meant the upkeep and challenges of managing a second home.
Fortunately, emerging trends in the travel industry created an innovative idea in Turks and Caicos. The trend was this: groups of friends or families would combine a luxury trip with a reunion. Thus, they might find themselves in search of groups of suites or large homes that would allow them to really share time together, under a single roof.
On Turks and Caicos, they ran into trouble because there were not homes with that many bedrooms and baths readily available. Even when a free-standing home was available, it had no general management, no one to meet traveler’s needs, and no services that made a visit a relaxing escape for the guests.
This is when the Beach Enclave development emerged. Led by Vasco Borges, the Founder and CEO of the property, along with a team of seasoned experts, the project involves three luxurious neighborhoods, the first on North Shore opening November 2016, then Long Bay in late 2017 and Grace Bay in early 2018. Each enclave contains several four- to seven-bedroom villas. Tucked inside a gated community and offering luxury resort amenities and services, they will have large and private grounds and offer the famous “location, location, location” that ensures a quality experience.
Beach Enclave North Shore is described as “ultra-low density”, and is unique from any other part of the island. With ten acres and over 650 feet of private beachfront and located along the famous International Drive. This is already an exclusive and upscale area of private estates and amazing views. Just a short distance from the excitement of the Turtle Cove entertainment hub, this property will be a little world of its own.
Though the beach will be one of the most private, with very limited access and part of a nature park teaming with native sea and land creatures, each home will be self-contained with an area of private beach, an infinity edge pool and many outdoor living spaces. As the development team has said, “Nowhere else in Turks and Caicos can owners and guests enjoy a true private beach experience and the elevated views offered from each of the nine beautiful villas.”
The beachfront villas feature a secluded beach area separate from the main beach, with a wooden deck, summer kitchen, fire pit, outdoor shower, and everything needed to savor luxury beachfront living – indoors and out. Resort amenities along with dedicated staff and luxury interiors by Domino Creative will ensure that guests enjoy the privacy of a villa with the bespoke services unique to a boutique resort like Beach Enclave.
