Beach Enclave Turks & Caicos – The Making Of A Successful Brand

Beachfront – Beach Enclave North Shore – Phase 1 Completed and Phase 2 In Development

It all started with a desire to create a legacy built on a strong foundation, exemplary fundamentals, a strong professional team and an extraordinary location. The developer’s vision was to combine a home environment with the services and amenities of a condominium. Vacation home-owners wanted more than a piece of real estate, they wanted bespoke services and dedicated home management services. The Beach Enclave design ethos with low density and floorplans that seamlessly blend indoor with outdoor living spaces, modern but warm décor combined with fun amenities, maintains its successful path. Since the first launch of Beach Enclave North Shore in January 2014 the developers continue to strive to create new and lasting experiences and dream vacation homes. Now with five phases of development in three amazing locations, it is no wonder that the dreams of many vacation home-owners have come true.

Wanting to appeal to a broader market of home buyers, Beach Enclave developers introduced The Club at Beach Enclave Long Bay with four Beach Houses and a boutique condominium, The Club Residences. Now completely sold out with the Beach Houses nearing completion and The Club Residences due to start construction imminently the developers have cleared ground for the Phase 2 of Beach Enclave North Shore. Utilizing the same architect as The Club at Long Bay, the developer has taken a dramatic beachfront location and carved into the limestone shelf to seamlessly connect the Beach Houses to the surrounds. The exposed limestone functions as a design feature and acts as natural barrier offering privacy between the homes. The expanded resort amenities on this North Shore location include an elevated oceanfront Club Lounge with an indoor/outdoor bar and restaurant, lounge decks enhanced with water and fire features, an upgraded oceanfront Fitness Center and Yoga Deck, a lighted tennis court, kids club, and a one-of-a-kind luxurious Enclave Gardens, teeming with Caribbean fruit trees, all for the exclusive use of owners and guests.

Why I Love December in Turks and Caicos

  1. The Trade-winds are back
Sunset over Grace Bay beach

Anyone who has lived in the Equatorial zone, or has traveled to the Caribbean/S. America over the years during Christmas season, will be familiar with the Trade-winds. The Trade-winds, dominate most of the tropics and subtropics throughout the world and are a nearly constant (they only drop away during end of September and October) northeasterly wind in our hemisphere, that starts to blow in November of every year. By the time December rolls around we experience whether akin to Aspen, Colorado.  Think bright blue skies with the sun beating down, but a cool chill in the air.  Substitute snow-capped mountains for swaying palm trees and sandy beaches and you begin to get a feel for the special draw of Turks and Caicos (‘T&C’) during the holiday Christmas period.

  1. Boat trips
Coral is beautiful to look at, but we don’t allow it to be taken out of the sea 🙂

Every December 26th since I was a child, we have enjoyed a Boxing Day boat trip on the Atabeyra.  For those with British heritage you’re familiar with the joys of Boxing Day, which for all intents and purposes, is a much less chaotic day than its forefathers Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. The Irish call it Wren Day, other countries call it St Stephen’s Day, but for all who celebrate it, in practicality it has become a day to relax and unwind after the stress of the holiday season is over, and gather with friends and family to enjoy a final day of good food and great company.  If you can enjoy this holiday, or any other day in December on a boat, you’re quids in!  Boating is a year-round event in T&C, and it doesn’t stop during Christmas.  The weather is beautiful, the sun is shining and we’re still swimming in the ocean.  Granted the sea may be a little colder than we locals like it, but there’s no better way to wash off the cobwebs than taking a Boxing Day plunge, and let’s face it, anyone from the Northeastern seaboard or Europe would laugh if they heard us admitting we find it a little cold!  The temperature is akin to taking a dip in the Mediterranean during Summer time, refreshingly cool, enough to enliven your skin and leave you feeling renewed and energized.

  1. Inter-island travel is open again
Mudjin Harbour, Middle Caicos

If you, like many, have been confined to your homes/apartments since the outbreak of COVID-19, self-isolating, locked-down and going through the rigmarole of at home schooling like the saint that you are, imagine jumping on a ferry with your family (face mask on of course) and making your way over to North Caicos (population approx. 1,500).  From North Caicos, you can rent a car and head over to Middle Caicos on the causeway to explore the caves and bluffs with virtually no one else in sight. Fresh air, clean breezes, big ocean and natural adventures abound in North and Middle Caicos, and are just what the doctor ordered after months and months of quarantine. Sure, you can stay cooped up in your apartment until the frost from winter thaws, or you can safely enjoy all that T&C’s sister islands have to offer, and give your family the gift of a memory they may not have otherwise had.

  1. Outdoor Activities
Tip of the Tail Villa

With the end of the dreaded hurricane season in November, December’s climate is well known as the most hospitable environment for international travelers. We’ve talked about boating and beaching, but there is no end of outdoor activities to take advantage of.  With highs in the low 80’s and lows in the high 70’s, December is a perfect time to get on that kayak or paddle-board and explore miles and miles of unspoiled natural environment. Mangroves, the same ecosystem that protects our shorelines during hurricanes, are peaceful and rife with small marine life, turtles and bird watching for the nature lovers out there.  There are many places where you can enjoy these activities conveniently just by stepping out of your private villa’s backyard, like Tip of the Tail Villa.  Otherwise you can join one of the many operators on a guided tour of these precious ecosystems.  I especially like Big Blue Collective who have long been ahead of the game in focusing on small private groups and preservation of the flora and fauna of T&C.

  1. The Seven Stars Xmas tree
Shot by Kaieri Media

Call me crazy, but without the usual queues of the seasons you receive when you live in the Temperate zone, its tough to know when Xmas is on its way.  We tend to live in a perpetual endless summer in T&C, but there are a few key indicators that the Christmas season is well under way.  The first of these signs is the lighting of the giant Christmas tree that has long been an annual tradition.  In years gone by the space that Seven Stars now occupies, used to be home to one of the first resorts in T&C, the Ramada, and after that it changed hands to the Allegro.  Those times are a distant memory now, and it’s hard to imagine a time when Seven Stars wasn’t Seven Stars.  The resorts on this prime beachfront land are so varied in aesthetics, but the one common feature, other than the land they’ve occupied, is the lighting of the Xmas tree.  That’s the thing about traditions, they stand the test of time.

Introducing Phase 2 of Beach Enclave North Shore

by Turks and Caicos Sotheby’s International Realty

Phase 2 Beach Enclave Long Bay

Vasco Borges, Developer and Founder of the Beach Enclave brand, is proud to announce the highly anticipated Phase 2 of Beach Enclave North Shore, which expands upon the original, award winning Beach Enclave boutique private villa resort. 

Phase 2 offers ten tropical minimalist two to four-bedroom homes, sitting atop a magnificent, beachfront, elevated perch, with one of Providenciales’ most jaw dropping views of the north shore and the reef barrier, providing the perfect combination of elevated views and access to a virtually private beach. 

“The homes are built to take full advantage of the topography. The first story of the Beach Houses are carved into the limestone shelf, seamlessly connecting them to the surrounds. Entry to the home is provided from the second level, so you have ocean views from 47′ of elevation in your master bedroom. The exposed limestone functions as a design feature, and acts as a natural barrier offering privacy between homes. The Ridge Top Houses set behind the Beach Houses, take full advantage of the position on the top of the ridge with 60′ of elevation from the first story and 70′ from the second.” – Vasco Borges, Developer, Beach Enclave. 

With 35′ of elevation the Beach Houses range in size from 2,885 gross sq. ft. for the two bedroom to 4,080 gross sq. ft. for the three bedroom. Prices for the Beach Houses start at $1,895,000. 

The Ridge Top Houses are superbly positioned to protect ocean views and privacy and range in size from 2,918 gross sq. ft. for a two bedroom to 4,817 gross sq. ft. for a four bedroom. Prices for the Ridge Top Houses start at $1,650,000. 

“We are thrilled to be launching Beach Enclave North Shore Phase 2. Yet another amazing project with Vasco Borges and his team. On the heels of great success in Phase 1 next door, and a building reputation with two further locations in nearly sold out Long Bay, and sold out and soon to be complete Grace Bay, the phase 2 homes open the acclaimed BE Villa enclave concept to a wider and highly interested audience.” – Joe Zahm, Broker and President, Turks & Caicos Sotheby’s International Realty.

A menu of pre-designed options is available. 

The expanded resort amenities include an elevated oceanfront Club Lounge with an indoor/outdoor bar and restaurant, lounge decks enhanced with water and fire features; an upgraded oceanfront Fitness Center and Yoga Deck; a lighted tennis court; kids club; and a one-of-a-kind luxurious Enclave Gardens, teeming with Caribbean fruit trees, all for the exclusive use of owners and guests.

Purchase the Last Remaining Beach House 1 and Become Part of the Beach Enclave Long Bay Family Through Home-Ownership Incentive

As you may be aware, Turks & Caicos has remained a safe haven throughout its closure period, since the end of March, with a minimal amount of COVID-19 cases to date, due to swift action taken by the Turks & Caicos Islands Government and Governor.

In April, Beach House 2 sold, with construction slated to commence imminently.

We have also seen construction re-commence on Beach Houses 2 and 3 which broke ground in December and are slated for completion by Q1 2021.

View our latest construction video.

Beach Enclave is committed to securing the sale of the last remaining Beach House 1, and delivering a construction-free living experience to early Beach House buyers and resort guests, and as such is offering the below incentive until the end of June to create a time-sensitive opportunity to qualified buyers during this time:

  1. $150,000 discount to the list price of $2,795,000 (3BR) and $2,995,000 (4BR)
  2. $25,000 credit towards design options such as an outdoor summer kitchen or resort amenities

Coupled with the Turks & Caicos Islands Government’s reduction in Stamp Duty for land acquisitions completed prior to the end of June (from 10% to 5%) the incentive results in more than $200,000 in savings.
The Club Residence is starting in 2021. The stamp duty savings will likely apply to a sale of any Club Residence through an Extended Payment Agreement.

South Bank on Long Bay Beach Where your haven is home

South Bank is a rare and welcoming haven: a place where easy-going island living meets beautifully designed homes, against a backdrop of spectacular natural beauty. A place to bring your friends and family for ocean adventures, relaxation and precious time together.

Windward Development Ltd., the developers of South Bank, set expectations last season with their inaugural development, Blue Cay Estate, which was a resounding sellout success met with much acclaim in the residential canal and beachfront section of Leeward. Award winning London and Turks & Caicos based architects, Blee Halligan, designed the contemporary homes at Blue Cay. Together, the team took a 15-acre parcel of raw land with limited ocean frontage, and used their vision for a boat loving community to create a gated canal front community of 15 exclusive contemporary homes with boat docks and 3 beachfront homes on the Leeward Channel. 
Windward Development has beautifully delivered on its promise of a secure and well-managed family development, ideal for water enthusiasts and boaters with the execution of the Blue Cay development, which sold out within a two-year period. Joe Zahm, President and Broker of Turks & Caicos Sotheby’s International Realty, the leading real estate company in the Turks & Caicos Islands, remarked “Blue Cay is a must see for my friends and colleagues. who are blown away by how well the project was conceived, from its understatedly cool, modern architecture, to the use of personal dock space in a canal and beachfront community that emerged from the raw site. Clearly a high level of vision and creativity went into achieving the end product, and we expect even bigger and better things at South Bank”   Windward Development has selected Blee Halligan again for their newest project, South Bank, a residential resort and marina community along 2,200 ft. of beach and iron shore, including a unique peninsula located on the southwestern end of Long Bay beach. The 31-acre site with direct affiliation with The Marina at South Bank, offers versatile home owning opportunities each providing a distinct relationship with the waters surrounding the development. Ivor Stanbrook, one of the development team Directors, commented that one facet of Windward’s unique approach to development is that, “We like to take a piece of property and reshape it in the ideal way to enhance the waterfront experience for our buyers.” 

South Bank promises to be a refreshingly contemporary community with a relaxed yet sophisticated atmosphere. Anchored by a full-service Marina, South Bank will be set apart by 6 distinct neighborhoods: The Ocean Estate 1 & 2, The Lagoon 1 & 2, The Launch & The Point. At project completion South Bank will comprise 19 Oceanfront Villas (The Ocean Estate 1 & 2), 18 Lagoon Villas, some of which include private docks (The Lagoon 1 & 2), 38 Boat Houses, most of which enjoy a private deck and boat dock (The Launch), and 16 one to three-bedroom Condominiums (The Point).

At full build out, amenities will include an affiliated Marina with exclusive owner’s boat services, fitness center and spa, tennis court, club house with pool, bar and restaurant, café, lagoon peninsula with lounging cabanas, non-motorized water sports, beach club and Long Bay beach access.
