Amazing Diving, Amazing hosts

Jon -- Dec 03, 2009 02:49 am
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!


Kayaking adventure highlight of our stay.

We stayed at the Harbour Club villas for a week, and would highly recommend this for travelers who wish to stay away from crowded resorts and explore the Turks and Caicos islands for themselves.
Harbour Club is set on a hill between a salt water lake and a harbour on the south side of the island, away from the major beach and hotel row which is
Grace Bay. It's the quieter side of the island and it does have some secluded beaches, but you'll need
a car to get to them. But you'd want to rent a car anyway, no matter where you stay.
If you are a scuba diver, Harbour Club is perfect as you have a walk of about 100 yards down the hill to the quiet harbour to catch the dive boat.
If you love to bonefish, this is the best as the lake is
right infront of the villas just steps away along with other areas close by.
Without a doubt the "adventure" highlight of our stay at Harbour Club was our self guided kayak trip to our own, it seemed, desert island. I used my GPS and measured it to be 2.8 miles (as the crow flies) from the marina docks at the villas. It took as just short of an hour. You don't have to be an Olympic athlete but you do need to have a degree of stamina. The result is worth it.
There is a lovely sandy beach at the right corner of the island as you approach it. Walking high onto various rock outcroppings result in stunning 360 degree views of turquoise sea and the "mainland".
The snorkeling was right at our fingertips and probably some of the best we've experienced. Besides the array of nameless colorful fish we saw lobsters embedded into coral heads, rays undulating with grace and a huge crab resembling the Alaskan King.
Upon arrival we were greeted by a few of the transplanted iguanas ...placed here in the hopes of sustaining their depleting numbers. We also enjoyed exploring the island with its understated flora. We even saw the remnants of some type of small fort like formation. Wish I knew the history behind that. In any case spend at least one day there, bring a cooler and a dry bag if you can and by all means chase you partner around the island naked! I for one, rarely travel to a destination without my fly fishing gear. For those of you who are comfortable self guiding for bonefish, let me just say that bones are here! Nice chunky ones at that. I landed 4 across the way from the villas in Flamingo Lake but my best day was spent 2 hours either side of high tide in Turtle Lake. Tailing , hefty, single bones had me enraptured for hours. I stalked, cast, changed flies, lengthened my leader, changed flies, again...had countless very good shots, even at a tailing school of about a dozen 20 feet away but didn't catch a one! Still, It was the best day of bonefishing, away from all the cares in the world, relaxed under a tropical sun, I've had for years.
Harbour Club Villas is a great place to stay at within close reach to everything, and with two of the nicest and knowledgeable hosts you could ask for.
