The Residences 2 by Grace Bay Resorts: Turks and Caicos

I stumbled on this villa the other day and it caught my attention for obvious reasons.

The Residences 2 gated beachfront luxury property is part of the Grace Bay Resorts, on island of Turks and Caicos. The decor and build of this villa has all the requirements and more!

With your stay you get access toa  personal concierge service a library! Now I love places that come with everything so I don’t have to leave, but this place makes me not want to book a return ticket!

Open plan design and decor have me feeling relaxed from behind my computer. The greens and turquoise colours with white tones make the ocean views more spectacular. The furniture is just inviting and I love high vaulted ceilings. The kitchen and living spaces fit in the open plan and make relaxing and spending time effortless. Plus you get daily breakfast 🙂

The five bedrooms at The Residences 2 can accommodate up to twelve people, TWELVE, seriously why havent you booked this place yet? with one of the bedrooms situated in its own cottage. The two master bedrooms open up to more ocean views that you can enjoy from the terraces. Every bedroom come with en-suite bathrooms.

This is by the far the most luxurious place I think ive posted. And its amazing. Because it’s in a gated micro resort, there are additional amenities like kid activities, shuttle services,complimentary start-up bar (rum, vodka, mixers, wine and beer) and pre-stocked kitchen….I love the word complementary…..

if you havent already booked this place you can do so here.

Manoir de Lorient gets it’s namesake from its location on Lorient Hill. Of course I have a thing for good architectural layout and this place just speaks to me. Each of the five rooms are divided into bungalows  which all open up to the courtyard.this place has high ceilings and lots of wood finishings which I adore. st-barts-manoirdelorient-13  It has a centrepiece swimming pool and a fully stocked kitchen (super important) and a heated jacuzzi. Up to ten people can stay comfortably in the rooms which all come with queen size beds and the master bedroom has an en suite bath and a king sized bed.

I love the design and decor of Manoir de Lorient. The minimalist decor I believe is best to highlight the natural beauty around.
