About the home
Driftwood is a charming villa sitting on over 350 ft of private shoreline on beautiful Chalk Sound.The accommodation is split between two Caribbean style wooden bungalows, each surrounded by and connected with wooden walkways on all sides giving two distinct living areas. The main bungalow is approached via steps from the driveway and houses the open plan living area and kitchen as well as a useful extra shower room. It has glass doors on three sides giving magnificent views of the turquoise waters of Chalk Sound.
A wooden walkway leads through the garden to the second bungalow which has two bedrooms, one a double and the other a twin which can be easily converted if a second double is required. Both bedrooms have ensuite shower rooms. The twin bedroom has a small living area connected to it providing a very useful second living area for families. There is a sofa bed and tv in this room so it can also be used as a third bedroom.
Outside there are large areas of decking, 3 sun docks, a pretty paved garden area and a small swimming pool leaving plenty of choice for sunbathing in seclusion or sitting listen to the gently lapping waters.

The Providenciales region
The Turks and Caicos Islands are a small archipelago of 8 inhabited islands and numerous small cays just 575 miles south-east of Miami. Fringed by one of the longest barrier reefs in the world the Turks and Caicos islands are blessed with beaches of powder white sand and some of the best scuba diving and snorkelling in the Caribbean.
The islands are arranged around the edges of two large limestone plateaus, the Turks Bank, with deep offshore waters that serve as major transit points for Humpback Whales, spotted Eagle rays, Manta Rays and Turtles. Anglers who are fishing for Tuna, Wahoo and Blue Marlin use these same rich waters. Bordering the edges of the islands are lines of coral reef and some of the most impressive walls of coral in the Caribbean.
Providenciales, or more commonly known as "Provo", covers an area of 38 miles and is the most developed island in Turks and Caicos. Surrounded by beautiful white sand beaches, Provo has been ranked "Best Beach" by Conde' Nast magazine and by the World Travel Awards for several years running.
Provo has a temperate climate and is comfortable all year round with temperatures in the mid 70s in winter and mid 80s in Summer. The absence of a cruise port and the islands low key night life maintain it's exclusivity and it's appeal to vacationers looking for a secluded and serene Caribbean destination.
The Chalk Sound National Park area
Towards the south of the island you will find Chalk Sound, a large stretch of striking turquoise water dotted with an array of tiny cays. Protected as a National Park the three mile long lagoon is a magical place to explore by kayak and just a short paddle away iguanas can be find on one of the small islands. The beautiful beaches of Sapodilla and Taylor bay are just a few minutes walk away.
A short walk from the house is Las Brisas, a great friendly bar and restaurant where jet skis can be hired or you can take a trip along the sound in their boat.
