    What a wonderful vacation spot! Having traveled to many different countries and having stayed in many Caribbean spots before, I have never felt as welcomed as here at Harbour Club Villas.

    Renting a vehicle is a must. We explored every road on the island in our two weeks, looking for unexplored areas and local treasures (beaches) to snorkel.

    Diving is amazing here! We dove for nine days with Flamingo Divers and Jayne and Mickey are amazing! They took care of everything for us and took us to a variety of different sites.

    Marta and Barry’s local expertise is amazing. You are missing some of the hilights of the island if you don’t ask Marta for information and directions to beaches for snorkeling or just exploring. Some of our favourite places were Smith’s Reef, South Bluff and a little known snorkeling spot Marta told us about.

    For eating places, we usually shopped at IGA and ate in but we did eat at some good places for lunches : Tiki Hut and Sharkbite. We found everyone on the island to be very friendly and accommodating in everything that we did. Through snorkeling and diving we saw over 60 varieties of fish and a number of larger sights such as reef sharks, nurse sharks, barracudas, southern stingrays, eagle rays, manta rays and green turtles. The highlight was seeing flying gunnards off West Caicos.

    We took a day off diving to tour the Conch Farm, South West Bluff and then took a kayak tour with Big Blue to Iguana Island (Little Water Cay). Another great 4 hour investment!

    We loved the villas We never even used the air conditioning (although it is a “must” on my hotel checklist) as the ceiling fans gave us a beautiful cool breeze. The kitchen had everything we wanted and the towels and linens were simply wonderful! The fresh flowers everyday were a treat. We also borrowed the ocean kayaks and beach umbrella which were welcome additions. The location of the villas was perfect as they were so close to Flamingo Divers (just a short minute walk in the mornings) and a close drive to everything else. Thanks for the wonderful visit Barry and Marta and we’ll see you again!
