Let’s face it, outside of the “one-percent” lot, owning a private island is something the rest of us only dream of.
But that doesn’t mean experiencing a taste of the peace, serenity and seclusion that come with a private island escape is beyond reach.
Less than two hours from Miami and a short island-hop flight from Providenciales, home to one of the largest coral reefs in the world, Sailrock South Caicos is the perfect setting for anyone searching for a unique barefoot luxury getaway.
Off the beaten path in the Turks and Caicos Islands, Sailrock South Caicos was named the World’s Leading Luxury Villa Resort 2022 at the World Travel Awards in November, along with other accolades.
South Caicos’ premier resort and residence community, nestled along pristine beaches with crystal clear blue waters, offering a plethora of outdoor activities, and featuring miles of undiscovered land, Sailrock checks all the boxes on the private island fantasy of even the most fanciful imaginations.
Amenities include a large infinity pool (complete with sun shelf and ample deck space for relaxing), spa cabanas, and a fitness facility with easy access to a fresh market. Fine dining options are available at the Great House Restaurant and Bar, while The Cove Restaurant and Beach Bar provides delectable cocktails and a delightful selection of fresh Caribbean cuisine.
With ridgetop suites elevated above the shoreline, beachfront villas steps from powder white sand with raised master bedrooms that provide endless views over the ocean, and the exclusive Peninsula Villas boasting views of the Atlantic Ocean and Caicos Bank, the five-star resort gives new meaning to unparalleled service, exclusivity and relaxation in a rustic, luxury out-island setting.
After five years of delivering hospitality excellence, the property has recently introduced a new real estate accommodation option.
The Five-Bedroom Garden Estate Villa, to be located on a secluded beachfront site in the private Peninsula Estates neighborhood, is a sprawling 23,000-square-foot collection of private rooms, terraces and gardens.
“This is barefoot luxury at its finest,” said Kashmie Ali, Managing Director of Sailrock South Caicos. “This villa has been designed in harmony with the natural environment and connects with the pristine surroundings.”
The villa’s entrance opens into the great room, an airy space that features an exposed vaulted ceiling and two sets of large sliding glass doors that lead to outdoor terraces. The Garden Estate also features a fully equipped eat-in kitchen, dining area, living room, media room, laundry room and pool among other attractive amenities. All five bedrooms feature closets, their own outdoor terraces and ensuite bathrooms with connected outdoor shower gardens.
The Sailrock Peninsula comprises several neighborhoods within hundreds of acres of unique topography, vegetation, and shoreline. The community is great for birding, hiking, biking and exploration. Eleven private villas have been completed in these neighborhoods with more planned in the coming year. Owners and guests enjoy the ultimate in privacy and seclusion, all while having easy access to the resort’s five-star, award-winning facilities.
A comprehensive villa management program provides owners with hassle-free ownership, and rental services are available to those owners looking to generate revenue when they are off-island. Other ownership benefits include zero property taxes or income taxes on revenue generated by property ownership.
For those looking to own a vacation home in Turks and Caicos, the Five-Bedroom Garden Estate Villa is available for $11.95 million. If the incredible appeal of the resort itself isn’t enough to entice would-be guests to make plans for a visit, special offers and packages are available to help seal the deal.
