“PARADISE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Truly the most amazing vacation ever! We visited with our teenage son and daughter and we all had a wonderful time. The units are immaculately kept by Paula and her staff. The gardener keeps the grounds very clean and beautiful and will even pick you a coconut or two during your stay. You have your own private beach with the best snorkeling on the entire island. We made friends with 3 sea turtles on the reef. Paula and John will also tell you where to go to get the most amazing meals and the best excursions. THANK YOU PAULA AND JOHN FOR THE GREAT MEMORIES.

My family (2 adults and 2 teenagers) stayed at this property from July 27-August 2, 2013 and had a wonderful time. The facilities, rental properties, location and beach/water was the best of all the places we've visited/rented property (Antigua, St. Croix, Belize, Dominican Republic). Paula and John have a remarkable set-up - 15minutes from the airport, 3 minutes from grocery store, 5-7 minutes (at the most) from wonderful/family friendly places to eat and shop. Private land surrounds their property so no one, literally, can invade your space. Snorkeling is right off the beach and it is top notch - Turks and Caicos has the 3rd largest barrier reef system in the world, only Australia and Belize are larger. People on the island - known as Belongers, not natives, are wonderful, helpful and willing to help you whenever you need something. The island is expensive - restaurant dinners are ~$100 for 4 people, but you really only need to eat out, if you want, for dinner, since each of the multiple bedroom units have a full-kitchen. This place is perfect for couples - there are single bedroom options, families and small-groups so just contact them and I am pretty sure they can make it happen. We cannot wait to go back.

Room Tip: All rooms are perfect in the multiple bedroom places since they all meet in the common room.

This review is long overdue as I've thought of Aquamarine over and over and how great of a place it was for our stay! My best friend was married there and our party consisted of over 30 guests, all of which were comfortably and happily situated within the beach houses. The service was fantastic, the people friendly and the houses were cleaned daily and very well maintained. The pool was very clean and the beach access is second to none amazing! When you can walk out of your house onto a private beach what more can you ask for. We had access to beach toys galore, kayaks etc. at no additional cost as well which was wonderful. This island is not a typical touristy place where you cannot walk on the beach without being hassled, in fact it was remarkable in the fact the we had to ask about the products for sale lol! People let you relax and enjoy your stay and there is no pressure to buy. Walking along this stretch of beach and floating in the sea is just beautiful and breathtaking. Upon returning here this is the ONLY place I would stay as you feel welcome, at home and you are walking distance to a few great restaurants as well. Overall this experience was awesome and I would highly recommend calling and booking your spot! :-)

Room Tip: All of these rooms are ready to go, decent closet space as well.

I'm very reluctant to write my review since (a.) I've never done this...I'm just a board 'lurker' and (b.) I don't want to spread the word about how wonderful of a gem this place really is......but Paula & John deserve it...this place is THAT good! I read about this place on Tripadvisor and based solely on the reviews on here, we booked our vacation. My family and I stayed at the Aquamarine Beach Houses- Seabreeze Balcony level from June 9-16th. Our kids are ages 11 & 8 and I can honestly say, I have never had a more relaxing and wonderful family vacation. The reviews were spot on.....incredible location, great value, extremely well-equipped, great snorkeling, very private beach, wonderful and friendly owners (& a great staff). We couldn't have been happier with our vacation from start to finish. The kids had absolutely everything they could have wanted for the beach and more and we didn't have to worry about packing any of it. It's all there for you to use! The location is close to the IGA grocery store, shopping areas & great restaurants (although we did eat in for a lot of meals since the best seat for the incredible sunsets was right on our deck!) We did rent a car which made getting around easier with a family of 4. Only planned excursion was the private pontoon boat ride at Las Brisas in Chalk Sound (great experience for families with younger children and very reasonable too). All of our other days were spent at this incredible place with a phenomenal beach and wonderful pool....enjoying all of our lazy summer days together as a family. Truly a perfect family vacation spot!!

Our family (myself,husband & 3 boys, ages 18,12 & 10) just returned from our 2nd stay @ AMBH. (Sand dune/ balcony level). We love everything about the property. It truly is as others have said....like staying @ a friends beach house. A friends beach house that happens to be on the THE most beautiful beach in the world. John & Paula are the owners. They will greet you personally upon your arrival. They know & love the island, and it shows. The units all have a full kitchen and stocked with everything you might need.We enjoyed breakfast & lunches on our wrap around balcony (IGA is just up the road). For dinner we stuffed ourselves with wonderful food from some of the local places. ( bugaloos,chimsons,Somewhere,Sailing Paradise). Each night we ended our day on our balcony,enjoying the million dollar view, cocktails and the kids playing in the pool. The beach is very private compared to the other end. Awesome snorkeling right out front as well as a quick walk to Coral Gardens and Turtle Cove. Fish Fry right next door. Heaven on Earth!! Feel free to message me with any questions. Already planning our return! Thank you Aquamarine Beach Houses for another perfect vacation!! Patricia,Rick,Uriah,Nate & Matt

We stayed at Aquamarine from June 9-16 in the Sanddune lower level. We are two adults with three teenage daughters ages 16, 18 and 21. We stayed in the lower level of the Sanddune and our "condo" was well furnished with good beds, and a full kitchen which we utilized for most of our meals. The maid came everyday and cleaned very thoroughly--she was extremely pleasant and attentive to our needs. Paula greeted us upon arrival and since it was late in the evening, gave us a brief overview of the resort and returned the next day to show us all the amenities. The resort is located on a very quiet and secluded part of the beach and we truly had the beach to ourselves which is very difficult to find on most islands. Water was warm and amazingly beautiful. The snorkeling was the best we have ever seen both outside the hotel and on the two snorkel trips we took while on Turks. Paula and John were gracious hosts, providing a wonderful backdrop for our relaxing vacation. John provided us red snapper for our dinner one evening and generously took our 21 year old daughter and my husband on his commercial fishing boat which was a highlight of the trip for them. My highlight was relaxing by the well kept pool and reading lots of books. Bring plenty of sunscreen and tennis shoes if you want to use the courts (we did--and they are in great condition). Attend the Thursday local fish fry (literally next door in the park) and be sure to stay for the local music performances. Aquamarine was a great place to have family time and for the price, it can't be beat.

We were there in early May. We knew we wanted the second floor view from the Seabreeze. The only drawback we saw was that, at that time, the deck was open to the sun. We were pleasantly and extremely surprised to find that Paula had built a roof over it for us when we got there. This place has so many five star ratings because the owners live there and take terrific care of their property and their customers. We truly enjoyed just sitting on the deck watching the waves and people on the beach. However, snorkeling in Grace Bay was a great time too. We had a rented car to get us to the grocery store and spent a day driving around Providenciales. Our car was too small for some of the unpaved roads, so we didn’t make it to the far end of some roads, but enjoyed that day too. We spent one day on a snorkel boat, but would have preferred to find someone where we would show-up, ride to the outer reef to snorkel, and then return to the pick-up point. The four hour, and day long tours, are spent on too many things other than snorkeling. Our time at Aquamarine Beach Houses could not have been more pleasant.

Room Tip: Second floor overlooking the bay.
