FAQ'S

What’s your cancellation policy?

In the event of a force majeure such as a fire, earthquake, hurricane, flood or other circumstances outside the control of a party causing damage to the property preventing the guest from obtaining normal use of the villa, all payments will be refunded to the guest. In the event of a force majeure causing the guest to be vacated from the villa, the unused portion of the vacation on a pro-rata basis will be refunded to the guest. In the event of an official hurricane warning in force for Turks and Caicos within 48 hours of the guest’s scheduled arrival, we’ll waive the cancellation penalty and change the reservation to a future date.

To best protect your reservation payments, we highly recommend cancel for any reason (CFAR) trip insurance which you can purchase online from brokers like insuremytrip.com.

No, but the ocean in back of the villa is shallow with a sandy bottom, and generally calm. It’s just a few steps down from the dock before you’re standing in that beautiful turquoise water!

Are bugs a problem?

Like all Caribbean destinations, mosquitoes and no-see-ums can be a nuisance, especially around sunrise and sunset, and after storms or rains. Ocean breezes help deter them, but the best deterent is bug spray or lotion. Those with DEET seem to be the most effective.

Is the water safe to drink?

Water is a combination of trucked in water and cachement, which is stored in a large cistern. Many guests opt to buy drinking water and ice from the store during their stay.


Should we buy trip insurance?

Because unexpected travel interruptions may occur due to medical emergencies, illness, weather, flight delays/cancellations, or any other unforeseen circumstances that are NOT subject to refund, TRIP INSURANCE THAT COVERS YOUR RESERVATION IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.


Do you sell trip insurance?

No, however you can choose from a number of different travel insurance plans on sites such as www.insuremytrip.com. Please make sure that you choose one that covers the cost of the villa rental in the event you must cancel your trip.


Do you have snorkeling equipment at the villa?

There MAY be some snorkeling equipment there, but it’s not something that we keep stocked. We suggest bringing you own mask and snorkel. Another option is to buy or rent snorkel equipment while you’re on the island.


What if we want to rent kayaks or paddle boards while we’re there?

There are a few companies that rent kayaks and paddle boards, and will deliver them to the villa. One is Big Blue Collective. You can also rent kayaks by the hour at Las Brisas restaurant on Chalk Sound, about a half mile away.
