Barefoot Palms was perfect for our family and two-year old grandson. We loved the tiki bar, clean salt water pool, great outdoor private fenced in area, beach chairs, umbrellas, awesome air conditioning and every amenity for cooking! We could walk two short blocks to Pelican beach which was all to ourselves! Perfectly calm - perfect blue water.
On a side note, I had to stay connected to work and the Internet at the house was excellent. The owner was very helpful in every question that we asked (Thanks Ramona) and lives in Virginia.
very nice villa,everything was great after a little trouble checking in,it was awfully hot and humid for the first four days but aircon worked great,would consider returning.Great beach close by.

Very good managers - friendly and flexible. Everything worked fine - elec, wifi, TV, pool, etc.
Quiet and safe part of the island 5 min drive to waitrose stocked supermarket, 5 mins walk to white sands and milky blue coloured sea ... 5 mins drive to Big Blue snorkelling company, 7 mins to Conch farm, 20 mins or so to the centre of grace bay, coral gardens mini-reef.
Spacious - most important - there was plenty of room and it felt like that - the whole family relaxed and had rooms to escape to.
Massive library of films - for all age groups
More plug sockets than even we needed for kindles/phones etc
Wifi is good - not film downloads maybe, but everything else
British premier league on nbc (cable)
Warm pool, outside shower to wash off sand, modern gas fired BBQ, TV in every room (so smalls can watch kids film while adults enjoy another)
Car rental is essential - for 5 min drive to supermarket, trips to other beaches etc. Nice to leave car unlocked and windows open (obviously with no valuables in car)
We generally did not need bedroom aircon units for more than about 5-10 minutes before sleep - main room aircon was good to have on.
Alarm system easy to use.
Traveling to Turks and Caicos to the first time, our experience was positive before it even began. Before we even booked the villa, the owner was sharing thoughtful and important recommendations that would eventually make this a vacation to be beat.
The villa is slice of paradise - and truly a home away from home. It was a perfect size for six people - we had plenty of space - and every amenity any of us could have wanted. The outdoor space can't be beat - we grilled regularly and launched each of our days from pool area. Don't forget your ipod - you can move the speakers out to the tiki bar to really set the scene.
It's a very short walk to Leeward beach - which you'll likely have almost to yourself. Pelican beach is a bit longer of a walk, but can't be missed, especially if you want to take a conch home. If you are looking for a relaxing and rejuvenating villa, look no further. We can't wait to go back!
Barefoot Palms is truly a home away from home. It has all the amenities under one roof. All rooms were comfortable. The backyard was extremely private and relaxing. It is minutes to the beach and close to all restaurants and excursions. The owner and management company were extremely helpful with great tips on what excursions to pick, and didn't disappoint. We stayed for the month of January and would pick Barefoot Palms over a resort now and in the future.
