Grace Bay Resorts is Pleased to Introduce the Release of the Reserve Villas

The Reserve Villas at Rock House are a pre-construction offering of only 10 villas set on the hilltop ridge overlooking the resort and ocean beyond. The 3-bedroom and 4-bedroom ocean view villas are located on the upper ridge and are 2-storey designs at 65’ of elevation on the main level and 76’-6”on the upper level.

At these elevations on the Rock House site, the views are panoramic and positioned with ease of access and proximity to the resort and Beach Club amenities. The villas are constructed to the highest standards in keeping with the first phase already nearing completion, fully compliant with Turks & Caicos building codes and meeting international standards. Built and designed with the finest of interior finishes and fixtures, the highest quality appliances, custom impact-rated sliding glass doors/windows and structural concrete construction and with an ecological approach. The property has taken its place in nature seriously and has retained and replanted more than 4,000 native plants and trees throughout the site to ensure this low-density resort remains authentic to its locale.

Rock House, set to open in May of 2022, is the next generation luxury resort and residential development in Grace Bay Resorts’ family of successful hospitality brands. Capturing the allure and elegance of the south of France, Capri and the Mediterranean coast, this distinctive private resort blends elegantly into its rugged coastline and elevation, providing unsurpassed views and privacy in a handmade setting. The center of attraction at Rock House is its dramatic, secluded beach, and an oversized pool perched on a 25-foot limestone cliff. Upon the hilltop overlooking it all will be a restaurant and bar, spa, fitness center and arrival pavilions, each offering a 180-degree view of the Atlantic Ocean and Providenciales.

Turks & Caicos Real Estate – Rock House Resort Starts Construction

We are pleased to announce ROCK HOUSE has broken ground and construction has commenced on the majestic 14-acre waterfront site with the official Groundbreaking Event taking place last weekend.
Government officials and the community showed up to support Grace Bay Resorts and watched as CEO & Developer Mark Durliat gave a heartfelt speech to his faithful hospitality team, many of whom have worked with Grace Bay Resorts for decades.
ROCK HOUSE is the latest development from acclaimed Grace Bay Resorts. Unlike any resort seen before in the Turks & Caicos, this unique development and residential vision is located on the north coast of Providenciales, with 600 feet of frontage and peaks soaring 95 feet above sea level.
Taking inspiration from the allure and sophistication of European hotels along the Mediterranean coast, South of France and remote isle of Capri, ROCK HOUSE has committed the same detailed attention to its method of construction, as it has to the design phase of its refined resort experience. Ensuring native trees, shrubs, orchids and succulents will be incorporated into the completed resort by preserving indigenous vegetation that has occupied the lush and varied landscape for hundreds of years.
“Reusing these natural materials and landscape from this historic site remains true to the Rock House spirit. We seek to ensure a very low environmental impact, with deep sustainability and a sense that this special resort property has been here for years.” – Mark Durliat, CEO & Developer, Grace Bay Resorts.

Rock House Resort, Turks & Caicos Update

Rock House November 2018 Update
We are pleased to provide you with our latest update on the highly anticipated Rock House Turks & Caicos. The project continues to gain momentum, with 19 contracts exchanged out of 37 residences available, resulting in a 68% commitment for our units in the initial Oceanfront Cottage and Ridge Cottage release (Phase 1).  We are also excited to announce the release of Rock House’s Phase 2 units with the Hilltop Condos. The concept provides for the creation of three (3) new buildings of three units each, over two floors. Each unit is a two-bedroom, two-bathroom with lockout capabilities and an expansive balcony with breathtaking views over the Rock House coastline. Measuring approximately 1,500 sq. feet with larger units of 1,900 sq. feet, the units are priced at $1.195M – $1.475M for the penthouse spanning the entire top floor.  Buyers will receive separate title to the one-bedroom and studio components of the two-bedroom, and can also opt to purchase a one-bedroom independently from the outset with a price-point of $695,000. Please inquire with our Turks & Caicos Sotheby’s International Realty team for more details. What’s more is the introduction of our unique “quarry pool” in this Phase 2 location, a new feature that all owners and guests will enjoy, and which will create a further identifier for this iconic resort property. As always, the goal is to introduce new and exciting concepts that will further elevate this project to a leading position in the Turks & Caicos Islands and the Caribbean region. We are thrilled to see it all take shape as we move towards the target of commencing construction on the Phase 1 units in early 2019. Finally, we are pleased to announce the approval for an exclusive Rock House buyer’s financing program from Grace Bay Resorts’ longtime partner, Scotiabank. For those wishing to finance part of their purchase, this is a unique opportunity that other pre-construction projects do not offer. The final details of this buyer financing are still being worked out and we will keep you updated on this.  We hope you will decide to a part of what will become a truly special place in the Turks and Caicos.
  Sincerely,   Mark Durliat, CEO & Developer, Grace Bay Resorts
