“an exquisite island, the most amazing care and service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2009

Words can not come close to adequately describe the amazing holiday my friend and I recently enjoyed at Habour Club. As we planned our trip, Marta and Barry ensured all arrangements were well in place, including dinner reservations for New Year's Eve and a great car rental.

Upon arrival, we were met with the warmest welcome. Throughout the week, we felt so very cared for - Marta and Barry genuinely wanted to make sure we enjoyed a fabulous holiday. This we did.

The villas are spacious, clean and beautifully appointed, nestled amid the most gorgeous landscape. Within steps is the marina, and just a short swim away is a quiet white sand beach, with crystal clear waves reflecting amazing blues and greens.

Each day we had the pleasure of chatting with Marta and Barry and getting some tips on where to explore. Without such insider information, we would have never seen the breathtaking sites we did. When I clumsily soaked my beach towel in sandy water, a fresh new one was in my arms within seconds.

And to top off an already perfect holiday, we joined Marta and Barry one day on their boat. We cruised the picturesque waters and had the experience of a lifetime playing boat tag with 5 dolphins! They were literally within reach, just playing along the side of the boat, inviting us to truly surrender to the magic of the island. Wow.

On our last day, Marta and Barry took special care to check our flight status, and warmly invited us to stay at the property to wait out the flight delay. Being detained at the Habour Club for a couple extra hours was an extra gift!

In essence, we enjoyed an exquisite escape to an island paradise with the comfort and care of home. Recommended to anyone; as two friends we had a blast - as a family or honeymooners I have full confidence you will enjoy an equally fulfilling and memorable holiday!

Thank you Marta and Barry!

We just returned from the Harbour Club Villas where we stayed 6 nights between Christmas and New Year's. Barry and Marta are terrific hosts. They greeted us as soon as our car pulled into the driveway. Marta had already recommended and booked our dinner reservations for each of the six nights and she had arranged for our car rental. Marta and Barry were always available when we needed information of any sort. They were so helpful and friendly while at the same time they respected our privacy. The villas are spacious and comfortable. Harbour Club Villas with its view of Flamingo Lake and the marina are a great alternative to the very expensive lodgings on Grace Bay. Since Grace Bay has public beach access, it is easy to drive there for a day on the beach. Harbour Club Villas is a wonderful place to relax.

We chose Harbour Club because it is perfectly located in central, south-side Provo; from there, we could explore every corner of the island in short jaunts. What we didn't expect was a gem worth so much more: incredibly gracious hosts who knew lots about their island, and were great advisors on what to see and where to go first. Our cottage gave us the feeling that we were islanders on our own little secluded slice of the Caribbean. We visited many resorts while we were there, and truly, none compared to the feeling of true island living that is created at the Harbour Club. The sweet touches of warmth that greeted us and remained throughout our stay, including the fresh flowers tucked in conch shells and towels, embodies the quiet elegance and commitment to hospitality shown by Barry and Marta.

We just arrived home after spending 10 days/9 nights at the Harbour Club Villas. This was our second trip to Provo (the first time was 2 years ago and we stayed at a hotel on Grace Bay).

We booked Harbour Club based on a recommendation from our friends over at Flamingo Divers. Price-wise, it was about $40 - $50 cheaper per day to book than at our previous hotel and we liked the idea of having a whole villa. Knowing that island prices for meals were about $50 for lunch and $60+ for dinner, we also liked the idea of having a full kitchen we could use to make meals and keep down those costs.

I have to say we were happily surprised by the size of our villa, the floorplan was extremely spacious so we had plenty of room to spread out and get comfortable. Marta tidied up our villa each day while we were diving and every third day, changed the linens and towels (which by the way, we had more than we could ever need). Our kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to prepare meals and our bathroom not only included a hair dryer but a hair straightening iron too.

If you stay at Harbour Club, you will need a car to get to it but I would recommend getting one regardless of where you stay. We arrived at night and had no trouble finding the place. I would venture to say that this part of the island is on the quiet side which suited us just fine. We could relax and have a great time in our villa or by the pool easily and if we wanted a bit more excitement in terms of a bar (Mango Reef at The Royal West Indies makes the best pina colada, by the way), it was a 15 - 20 min drive to Grace Bay. Obviously the island roads demand a designated driver, but that goes without saying.

Harbour Club Villas has a very homey, personal feel and I would say staying with Barry and Marta is more like staying with an Aunt and Uncle. They both know the island extremely well. Marta was wonderful at having suggestions for quick excursions to explore the entire island on our days off from diving.

Overall, it was a great experience and we plan on going back to stay there again. We are even contemplating how we can get a few more friends/family members to go so we can rent multiple villas.

  • Liked — The spacious villa and the fact we were steps away from our diving outfit
  • Disliked — Mosquitos & bugs - but those come with the islands

We stayed at the Harbour Club in early July, 2008 for nine nights. Our first impression was the quiet location away from busy roads and shopping centers but we were really impressed when the owner, Marta, met us in the parking lot with a hug! From that point on we were treated like family rather than customers. The Harbour Club is located on a small marina (which is home to an outstanding dive operation, Flamingo Divers) on a very peaceful side of the island. Access to grocery stores and restaurants is very easy and Barry and Marta gave great directions and made excellent recommendations. Each villa is similar to a one-bedroom condo with full kitchen, ample ceiling fans, and air conditioning in the bedroom. The units are kept spotless with daily service and fresh towels several times a week. The grounds are lavishly landscaped with palms and indigenous plants and the pool is a welcome respite after a day of diving or exploring. If you wish to avoid the big expensive resorts with hundreds of drunk, sunburned tourists, this is the place for you. It was for us and we are looking forward to going back.

  • Liked — Small and off the tourist radar.

Just back from a wonderful trip to the Turks and Caicos islands. Well, "Provo" really. We lucked out with the Harbour Club Villas and Barry and Marta's special piece of paradise. We spent our 20th anniversary in what we found to be the perfect setting. Thanks to the suggestions from Marta we booked our diving with Flamingo Divers (Jayne and Mickey). It was just a walk down the hill to the marina. Great diving with small groups. The location on the island proved to be great as well ... short distance to everything (via rental car). It was nice to get their recommendations on places to eat and special spots on the island. Their pool and deck area was a great place to hang out. It was also nice to have a grill available for cooking. We loved having such a well stocked kitchen in addition to everything else you need from a cooler for the car to books, tea lights and beach chairs. We would definately go back and would not hesitate to recommend this place. Very comfortable - amazing attention to detail. Thanks for all the flowers! You spoiled us. We could go on and on about the details - such as the variety of plants and flowers to the interesting birds and beautiful palms. We hope to return and for us you don't have to change a thing.

  • Liked — The personal service and the beautiful location
  • Disliked — I would recomend a car for the ease of getting to and fro - driving on the left takes some getting use to, :)

When we set out to find the perfect home base for a bonefishing trip to the Turks and Caicos, Harbour Club was exactly what we were looking for as a private, romantic, couples-oriented getaway. Like most who stay here, we try to avoid the crowded chain resorts and prefer a place with its own unique character and charm. Harbour Club is definitely that. Our villa was nicely decorated and spacious with screened windows throughout for that breezy, tropical feel. And the full kitchen was perfect for those cozy evenings in after a long day fishing. (But we loved eating out, too -- Provo has an abundance of excellent restaurants.) Renting a jeep was a must for exploring the island and Marta and Barry were more than willing to share all the best bonefishing spots. They are very considerate hosts and do everything possible to make your trip worthwhile. They even went out of their way to assist us with packaging a large souvenir we had purchased for the return trip home.

We enjoy traveling to the Bahamas as well and for us, staying at Harbour Club in Provo seemed to provide the remote, laid-back atmosphere of the Bahamas' Out Islands with all the amenities of a more developed island just a short drive away. We highly recommend it and would not hesitate to stay here again.
