Here is a sampling of what some of our satisfied customers had to say about booking their villas through Turks and Caicos Safari:

Stayed at Blue Waters the first week of January (2024) with a family of 7 adults and what a time we had!     Joanne was great from beginning in communicating details on property and responding to questions.  Upon arrival met by Rhonda who showed us around property and was available by text to answer any question, she actually had us follow her to the grocery store for our first trip on island.    The property is beautiful and exactly like the pictures.  We had 4 adults upstairs in the two master bedrooms and 3 downstairs, each with their own bed (the nook is a full size bed in its own area.   Large washer/dryer room (which is an outside entrance) and also where kayaks and numerous pool and beach toys are stored.   The pictures of the beach don’t do it justice with beaches chairs and two umbrellas, easy step access into the water for kayaking and swimming.  Two (2) boys took the challenge and paddled out to turtle rock and back in about 1.5 hours.   The BEST part of the house is the covered porch, we spent nearly every waking hour there reading, eating hanging out, the view is worth a million dollars.  House was clean, well-stocked and we would definitely rent this same property again.   THANK YOU so much TC Safari for making our first trip to T&C so memorable.

"What a fabulous week in Turks and Caicos! From my initial contact with Joanne Phillips of TC Safari to our arrival welcome with Rhondda Collymore of Island Management, hospitality and punctuality were exemplary. My husband and I travelled with four 20-25 year old children, and Blue Waters villa did not disappoint! Each day we explored a new adventure; yet, each was eager to return to Blue Waters, as there was no better setup for relaxing, views, and swimming. Without a doubt, we had our own paradise just outside the door. Thank you, Joanne and Rhondda!

"Joanne, just wanted to let you know we had an awesome time last week in the Turks & Caicos and our stay at the Beach House.  Thank you so much....certainly very much enjoyed by all and even the grandkids commented on how great things were.  Thanks for all your work in helping me pull it off.  And, Kerry was very responsive and helpful whenever I had a question."


"As once said and sung...'Thanks for the memories!!"

“THIS PLACE (Bahia Mar) IS A DREAM!!!! I can’t tell you how perfect this is for our family! Everything about it is just right! The house, the pool, the proximity to the beach, the beach itself!!! Oh my goodness! We just keep talking about it! 

Thanks so much for the patience you had and flexibility to help us get here! “

"Just wanted to say how much we enjoyed staying at the Villa Jayla in March!  It was a great reservation experience, being met at the airport, the property/amenities and snacks/champagne on arrival was a nice touch too!   Being able to enjoy the paddle board and kayaks was a highlight during our stay ( besides the pool, veranda and beautiful views!)"

"We had a wonderful time at Villa Sublime last week.  The staff was amazing and everything was perfect.  We really appreciate you and the extended team."

"We had a great time at Bahia Mar, house was outstanding and one of the best we have stayed at in TCI "

"I can honestly say Villa Jayla is truly a hidden gem on the island. Since Julie and I had previously stayed at a resort in Grace Bay a few years ago, Villa Jayla was perfect for my family and our desire to explore the many beaches on the island. 

A few items to note, we were ecstatic with all the amenities Villa Jayla offered. From the sea kayaks, stand up paddle board, to the abundance of beach and bath towels, and the small items such as coffee filters and cooking items. Overall, we had a wonderful experience!  Thank you once again."

"I just wanted to thank you for your help in assisting us in our rental of Casa Ananas.  The house and location were absolutely PERFECT.  The property included so many additional amenities that took our stay to another level; wireless speaker, second refrigerator, water dispenser, lily pad, canoes and paddle boards to name a few.  When we ran out of propane, a new tank was delivered immediately.  Also, when we called to get instructions on refilling the water dispenser jug, (fully intending on doing it ourselves), they had new jugs delivered to us.  We actually enjoyed ourselves so much, we seldom left the house the whole week.  The information you provided us prior to our arrival, proved to be a great help during our stay, so thank you!  If and when we decide to visit TCI again, I will definitely choose this property."

"For those seeking the laidback Caribbean easy living experience without the hefty price tag of Grace Bay Beach, Always Summer has a lot to offer at a modest price.  The view from the house and porch facing Turtle Lake is beautiful, especially at sunrise, which makes a refreshing start to the day. Our group spent many hours on the porch quite content to socialize and enjoy the view.   The property provides all amenities (including stand up paddle boards and kayaks); and, at the same time offers private and household gathering spaces.  You will need a car to get around from this location, however, it is central which makes it very convenient to access the great number of options available on island in terms of restaurants,  groceries and excursions.  This villa provides a nice value for a small group of friends and/or family.  We cannot wait for our next stay would definitely stay at Always Summer again."

“Denise is a wonderful host. To say that we had a fantastic time in TCI would be an understatement! We fell in love with the island and it's mainly because we were so welcomed by Denise and had such a lovely stay at her house. There were three of us and we felt very comfortable. The dinner table and hammock on the screened-in porch were a nice addition. We loved having coffee and dinners outside everyday. Overall, I highly recommend this place to anyone visiting TCI!”

“Thank you for having recommended this property (Rockspray )! We had a marvelous time. We love to snorkel and had four very calm days in the Sound stepping easily right out into the water from the steps. We were quite surprised by the variety of fish and coral all so close to the house, along the edges and around the little islands. And the house is so beautifully appointed with views of the Sound from every angle of each room. To put it simply to someone, ‘what you see on the web is what you get!’.If anyone is looking for a relaxing/restorative spot, this is it.

  Not sure of future plans but we will keep in touch. Trips back to Provo are certainly in our, and/or, our families’ plans. 

   Again, we had a great experience; thank you!”

“  ….It was an amazing trip and we have you to thank!         We would book the house (Bahia Mar) again next year, if it’s available.   The kids loved it as well!!”


Just landed back home with great memories of Turks and Blue Waters Villa. We loved being at Blue Waters Villa  in Silly Creek. It was awesome! Pictures didn’t do the house justice. :)”

We had a fantastic time at Columbus cottage!   The location, privacy, pool, and close proximity to Pelican beach were so perfect for us. Thanks for all your help.  I will let you know when we will be returning to T&C, we will definitely work with you again.

My husband and I go to the Caribbean every year the same week in November. We have been to many islands, Turks and Caicos is our favorite so far. The White Osprey is perfect for us in every way and plan to return there for future trips. The villa has the most magnificent views and is suitated perfectly on a hill, safe, private and peaceful. Everything we needed was provided in the comfortable cozy villa and Denise and Christina were always available to answer any questions. Love, love love it.


We are regulars when it comes to renting vacation homes and TC Safari is by far the best we have dealt with - very responsive and high attention to detail.  Providing recommendations for excursions and sending island magazines to us prior to our departure are a nice touch.  We would definitely book a vacation villa with TC Safari again!”



“I apologize for the delay in getting this email off to you.  I did not want TC Safari to go unrecognized!  We had a wonderful trip - thanks to all of your help and efforts.  We stayed at Bahia Mar . The villa was fabulous!  Exactly as you represented.  I really appreciate all the time you spent with me last year on the phone, explaining the different villas and trying to help me decide where we should stay.  We definitely made the right choice!  When we return, I don't think I'd want to stay anywhere else.  We're convinced we had the best villa on the entire island.  Taylor Bay was absolutely perfectly awesome!"


“All of us, grandparents, parents and children, want to thank you for all you did to make our trip to Turks and Caicos so wonderful. La Koubba was the perfect house for us.  From the beautiful architecture, to the interesting and delightful landscaping, to the pristine beach, to the amazing sunsets, we continued to be thrilled.  Even with twelve people we never felt crowded.

Your help, Joanne, was invaluable and contributed to make this such a memorable vacation for all of us. We can’t thank you enough.“



What a perfect spot for a perfect villa (Villa Blanca). We truly enjoyed and completely relaxed. Thank you for sharing with us. Dinesh gave us the perfect orientation to the island and we found everything we needed. We're hooked and plan to come back!

P.S.: we enjoyed the art/design by Sandra, beautiful work."         

"Hello Joanne!
I just wanted to thank you for all your help in booking Villa Mariposa during the holiday season 2013. It was just GORGEOUS. The view at Mariposa could not get any better! Taylor Bay was perfection. The weather was perfect. I can go on and on about how much we enjoyed it! Thank you THANK YOU!!!"



"We are just back from our week at the Bahia Mar and what a week it was! How beautiful the Bahia Mar is and Taylor Bay -Wow! We could not have asked for a more perfect spot for our family to vacation. Thank you for confirming for us that this was the perfect choice. We had never rented a villa before or been to T and C but we will definitely do it again! Michael was very gracious and we would not hesitate to refer him or yourself to all our friends and family (which we have already done!)"



“After all those years of staring at Five Turtles from the beach, wondering what it was like, we now know... BLISS! Five Turtles' owners have exquisite taste.  Fabrics, towels, bed linens, appliances, electronics, BBQ grill- everything is top drawer.

We were in heaven!"



"While we preferred to just stay at the villa (Bahia Mar) and pretend like we were rich for a week, we did venture out often.  It was a breeze renting a van through Grace Bay Car Rentals, and we had no problem getting around the island.  We went to Grace Bay beach and snorkeled Smith's Reef, then had the almond-crusted grouper at Sharkbite.  We shopped one morning, then had lunch at Da Conch Shack. We tried snorkeling The Bight Reef, but it was too rough so we went back to Smith's Reef, then had an afternoon snack on the upper level of Somewhere Cafe overlooking the beach. After several phone calls, we finally got in to Coco Bistro and had a wonderful meal; excellent atmosphere. One night we had fresh lobster on our grill, which was quite divine!  On the day of departure, after checking in at the airport, we went for lunch at the Tiki Hut.  Many fond memories were made! We also had the opportunity to meet Michael and he was such a gracious host; it was nice to get the opportunity to talk with him about the villa and the islands. Thank you again for everything!  You'll be my first call when we decide to come back.”



"Well, we are on our way, after an absolutely wonderful week at Bahia Mar. The weather has been truly perfect, and, as always, we love this house.  In fact, I will be in touch when we are back in town to see if we can book next year!

Thank you again for everything".



“Please let the owners know how much we loved their beautiful home (Villa Mariposa).  Everything was perfect.  The house, the ocean deck, the pool, comfy couches on the porch, ipod docking, and lovely master bath....I could go on and on…  For the two of us it was absolute paradise.:)"

"Just finished two very beautiful weeks of holidays at the Moonshadow Villa. I want to take a few minutes to thank you for the outstanding service you gave us in helping us choosing the right villa. All of us agreed that Moonshadow was definitely the best choice we could do; the villa was spacious, the rooms were exactly what the Internet site described and the kitchen facilities were excellent for a group of 9 adults. The outdoors facilities(patio, pool, deck) were all that you can expect from a class place in the south islands. Also, the area was very quiet which added to the relaxation and peace of mind at night. Again thank you very much for your help, you definitely get an A rating from us".



"We love Villa Mariposa and enjoying our week here!  Is this villa open memorial week and thanksgiving week?  We are interested in coming back a few times this year.  This villa is amazing and we absolutely love it!"



“Just emailing to say thanks, everything was great. The Bella Sur Mer Villa met our expectations and more. Great location and the staff were very helpful. Definitely want a return engagement one day”



"My group just returned from T&C and I wanted to thank you for all of your help. The trip and accommodations were perfect and just what we wanted. We had a fabulous time and you had a lot to do with getting us the perfect spot.



"I am sure we will be returning many times as we now have found the perfect vacation location. My only challenge for the future is how to turn the Pelican Nest into a four bedroom Villa, as more friends now want to come with us on the next trip. Oh well, nice problems to have. Thanks again for all of your help."

“Just got back from a wonderful  week at the Bahia Mar Villa. The Villa was better than I could of ever imagine. Everyone was very pleased with it. The Villa had everything you could possible want. Hair dryers in each bathroom. The bedroom were nice size and very comfortable sleeping with the ocean breeze. The kitchen had anything and everything you needed to cook a nice meal. The grill was right there off the kitchen. Made it very easy to get too. We loved all the open space of the downstairs and the sliding glass doors to open up to the screened in porch. Every day we would say “this is just perfect”. We  never had to wait  very long for a problem to be resolved. I would highly recommend this villa to anyone. We are hoping to get back next year. Thank you for all your help and information to make this a special get to together.”


“Just wanted to say “Thanks” for the great time at Bahia Mar.  We really enjoyed the Villa and it was “all we hoped it would be”.  Great location, private, all the amenities you could ask for, and so much more!!  We really did enjoy the week and look forward to returning in the not too distant future.  We will use TCSafari, as you delivered all you promised.”



“Now that we’ve returned to the frigid mid-Atlantic, I wanted to write and thank you for the wonderful stay at Poinciana over the winter holiday. The house and location were perfect — just what we were looking for in a rental property. We especially enjoyed being back on Chalk Sound where things were a little more private and remote. Overall, we found the island to be wonderful, and we took full advantage of the beaches and recreational opportunities. As my wife loves to cook, so your shopping tips and other recommendations were extremely helpful and made our stay very easy. Thanks again.”


“I wanted to drop you a line and let you know that we had a WONDERFUL holiday and so enjoyed staying at Calypso House. From the greeting and airport pick-up, to help with boat trips, tips on shopping and the island, it was all perfect. The gallery …. is likely TOO much information for you, but I wanted to share with you a sense of how much we enjoyed the Islands, the house, and the local activities.  We have fallen in love with Turks and Caicos and I look forward to coming back many times.“

"I wanted to send you a quick email to let you know how wonderful our vacation was. I have honestly never seen a more beautiful island and we absolutely loved our villa (Paradise Pointe)!!! I also wanted to make sure you were aware of how wonderful the property management team was on the island. They took care us of from the moment we arrived. We had to call them when our dishwasher and blender broke and they were there immediately fixing the problem. We had a worry-free vacation thanks to you and your team. I can't put into words how impressed I was both with you and the property management team!!! Thanks for everything, talk to you next year!!!!! "


"My husband and I stayed at (Calypso House) for two weeks recently (last week January/first week February). We truly enjoyed our stay at Calypso House. We think you did a fantastic job renovating the place and we loved the layout (both inside and outside). The setting was just what we were looking for. We wanted to get away to rest and enjoy a sunny and warm place with all the right creature comforts. We found that at Calypso House. Lastly, we wanted to mention that both Joanne, your agent, and Tina, the Property Manager, took very good care of us!"


"I've been meaning to write you ever since we returned from Turks & Caicos in early April.   My family and I had an absolutely wonderful vacation at Bahia Mar and I thank you so much for all your assistance. You made the entire experience very easy for us.  This was our first visit to your Island but I know it won't be our last.  
..Take care and again thanks for all your help."

"I just wanted to tell you what an incredible trip we had to Paradise Pointe. Thank you for helping to facilitate that.  The house was absolutely incredible!   A lot of great memories were made and we can only look forward to our next visit."


"Thanks to all you guys for helping make this a true dream vacation (Bahia Mar).  It was wonderful beyond words."


"Thank you again for sharing your lovely home (Blue Heaven).  Back in the 80's I cruised the Caribbean on a private yacht and had always wanted to come back and just sit on the beach and at the pool, which is exactly what I did. It was perfect for me.  The house was lovely.  The mattress was an absolute dream. We felt very good about the choice of Blue Heaven.

Although my suntan is fading my memories will not.  Thanks again for helping us choose

The beach by Columbus Cottage is the BEST BEACH EVER! The water is amazing! Beautiful sunsets, beautiful turquoise water! Gorgeous and ever changing each night. Their home was private! Comfortable, with an awesome screened in wrap around large porch. We loved the pool and the yard!! Both so beautiful. Had coffee each morning at the gazebo by the pool. Swam and enjoyed their private little haven each day! They are also wonderful people to work with. We WILL be returning ️ Thank you!!! “






















"Hi Joanne. Just a quick note to say thank you for your help with our vacation plans. We absolutely love the island and always enjoy our time there. It was the first trip for our new son-in-law and he fell in love with it too. Casa Ananas worked well for our family. The views were tremendous, the pool and beach added bonuses. Taylor Bay is so beautiful. The kitchen was well equipped and we cooked several meals there. The bedroom arrangement was nice in that we all had some privacy. We look forward to returning next year, after several trips to other places in the islands we prefer the Turks & Caicos. So, we will contact you later this year to reserve something in that same area/same size"


"We had a wonderful time (at Columbus Cottage) and would like to make next year our tenth visit since 2000 to Providenciales. . The first year was Calypso House with our big family, then 6 times at Le Salamandre and now twice at Columbus cottage. Meanwhile Columbus Cottage (as you must know) was painted in January when the owners visited and is a very nice property. So we would like to return."


"Hello Joanne - I just wanted to tell you what a wonderful time we had in Provo and at Paradise Pointe. Thank you so much for your help and hospitality. We loved the island so much we are planning to come back in May and check out some realty for ourselves."


"Just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you for your wonderful service and to let you know how very much we enjoyed our stay at Bahia Mar!!! It was FAR MORE FABULOUS than we ever expected!!! The house itself is PERFECT and the location was exactly what we wanted.  I will be in touch with you so we can reserve early.  Again, thank you for a fabulous job....well done!!!"

"We all wanted to let you know that our stay at Blue Waters Villa last week was absolutely wonderful. We loved the house, property, pool and ocean. An absolutely perfect vacation! I can't believe that we were lucky enough to be able to rent this home at such short notice. Thank you so much Joanne for making the arrangements for us. We were delighted with your efforts.

"Calypso House was found to be as advertised, and you deserve my thanks for recommending it to me. We had 7 adult family members there for the week and every one had a ball. The house is beautiful, and the kitchen facilities are first class. The new barbecue grill and gazebo was a big hit and many fine meals were cooked on it."

"Thank you Joanne. It was wonderful working with you on this vacation. I have done nothing but praise you and TC Safari with everyone who has seen my pictures and asked how I found the wonderful villa (Alizee)....Thank you for making a special birthday a fantastic memory."


"... I wanted to write and say thank you for all your help in setting up our rental last month. We had an incredible time - the weather was absolutely perfect every day. Alizee was phenomenal - it exceeded all of our expectations and we thoroughly enjoyed Taylor Bay beach - we didn't see more than 5 people on that 1/2 mile stretch of sand on any given day. Our group especially enjoyed the stereo system that pumped music throughout the house and around the pool deck - we just plugged in our iPods and played our favorite tunes. Thomas the caretaker was so nice and helpful as well. Your selection of properties was outstanding - no one else seemed to have as many beautiful villas for rent on Provo."


"Just wanted to thank you for recommending Bahia Mar for our vacation. The house was exactly what you said it would be. We had plenty of space and it was very comfortable for a large group with small children. The beach was also perfect. It was never crowded and the girls loved the water. All in all, we had a great time and I would be happy to recommend you.
Thanks for all your help!"


"I am writing to say that our trip to Provo Is. was everything we expected and more... The whole trip was a great experience and the ocean and beaches was the most beautiful I have every seen. The Columbus Cottage was magnificent with the gardens, trees, flowers, bushes and seclusion... very private, quite and a pleasure to stay in. Thank you and T&C Safari for making this trip a great success and a memory that will last forever


"Just a quick note to tell you that we had a fabulous vacation on Turks and Caicos! Everything was perfect! We loved the house, the location, the weather was beautiful! Thank you for all your help! You may recall that we had lots of questions, and all your advise proved to be well founded! If we have friends who are interested in a Turks and Caicos vacation, we will refer them to you! Or if you need a reference, we will be happy to give one”
