My wife and I loved our stay at the NWP Resort. It was a perfect location as we love places that are more secluded and the beach is so close to all the units. The pool and hot tub were perfect for the day or night. Lisa Franklin was very helpful and communicative. She made our stay personable and uncomplicated! It is located on the north tip of the island where one can walk miles around to the other side if desired, all along a very secluded area of Providenciales. We would love to come back with our whole family to show them the beauty of Turks and Caicos!
Secluded, Relaxing, Family Friendly

We just returned from a wonderful 10 day stay at NWP. We stayed in unit 308, in building 2 - and like many others, rented from Airbnb host Lisa. We put this trip together in a few short weeks, due to COVID restrictions changing our plans... I posted on TA a "what would you do" question in the forum and was advised against booking NWP because it was so far away from Grace Bay. I am so glad I didn't let this feedback deter our decision to book here! That being said, I do think it's important to be real about our experience, and what to expect when staying in this community.
We were a party of 6, in a 3 Bedroom Oceanfront Penthouse. We had two bathrooms, a full kitchen, two balconies and a common living space, in addition to the bedrooms. This worked out really, really well for the two families traveling together. We all had our own space, and could come together for meals, snacks, etc. Two of the three bedrooms were ocean front, with balcony access directly from the bedrooms. We were ocean front - for less than 1/2 the cost of ocean front accommodations in Grace Bay. The views and breezes were amazing!! We had a 180 degree view of the ocean from the master balcony!
We explored the island almost every day - we rented a van for part of our stay and then had to trade it in for a couple of compact cars for part of the stay. All of the vehicles handled the gravel road without issue. Most of the places that we traveled to were only 20-25 minutes from NWP... we had one 30 minute drive to our boat charter - on the NE side of the island, but we found going to dinner, exploring beaches (including several trips to Grace Bay) to be easy and painless. We felt safe driving back and forth, even at night - though, to be fair, we were usually home by 9pm.
The beach, and selection of beach toys was more than enough to satisfy our traveling party of adults and kids. We built sand castles, kayaked, played in the surf, etc. Yes, there's seagrass on the beach. It was groomed daily, and honestly, it was cleaner than Long Bay. Is it the bright blue, sandy beach of Grace Bay - no, but we also had the beach mostly to ourselves when we weren't out exploring. We had no trouble finding pool chairs - and rarely shared the pool with more than one other family.
Because this is a private community - we did run into a couple of owners who, you could tell, were not pleased that units were available for vacation rentals. One woman was upset the chairs had been rearranged, she also was upset when someone walked away from the pool without closing the umbrella. In the 10 days we were there we never saw anyone abuse the facilities, mistreat anything, etc. - so it was a little disheartening that she was so vocal about her dissatisfaction with vacationers visiting this resort. There were some maintenance things in our unit that needed some attention - but nothing earth shattering or vacation ruining. We also didn't find out that the restaurant was closed until we landed and reviewed the instructions to check in on the app. We had counted on being able to have a couple of meals at the restaurant (including our first nights dinner) so that was the only truly disappointing thing that I wish we had been told in advance.
All in all, we had a great time and would not hesitate to rent from Lisa, or stay at NWP on a future visit. We prefer the secluded location, to the "crowds" of Grace Bay. But, if you want to be close to the action, or be able to walk to dinner - this is not the location for you.
Best place in TCI. Family with young kids

Our fabulous experience started when we were at home. Lisa was of a great help since our booking started.
Her place is bright and extremely clean. To our surprise and benefit we had everything we needed to start: a couple of dishwasher pods, enough cleaning supplies, shampoo and conditioner (!!), dish soap. toilet paper, and alcohol and disinfectant that these days are priceless!!
Lisa was always available for questions or bringing solutions. Also when we asked for extra supplies, like toilet paper and soap. She is a superb host !.
Cleaning service was available at extra cost but the place is very easy to maintain and the supplies are right there! There were also a beach umbrella and beach chairs that we used to visit other beaches (100% recommended!)
The condo had all types of appliances and pans and pots and cutlery, nothing was missing. We even baked a birthday cake! The oven and microwave worked perfectly.
The complex is the perfect size for a family with young kids, easy access to the pool and beach. The best of this place is probably the location: isolated form the business of downtown, but a short 15-20 min car ride to it.
This is a perfect place to combine pleasure and work (if needed). The wifi works excellent.
The beach is wide and even though has seaweed it is cleaned every other day. It is a great beach for long walks and relax listening to the sounds of the sea and little waves.
Overall, we had a great experience and would definitely come back and recommend this place, and mostly Lisa!
A perfect spot to unwind, relax and enjoy your holiday!

WE LOVE NWP!!!
We stayed in Unit 101 - and worked with Lisa Franklin personally to book our trip!
Lisa had generously donated her unit as a silent auction item to help raise money for the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation. My Girlfriend and I bid on this trip together and we won, so we planned our trip and brought our Husbands along!
We didn't know what to expect, but it is Turks and Caicos and a Dream Vacation! Lisa allowed us to extend our stay and was flexible with our booking, she was so helpful with giving tips and tricks on what to pack, giving suggestions on daily activities to participate in and, giving us a list of the "must see" areas on the Island. The resort was just as she described, and the directions to get to the resort were simple and easy to follow. The condo unit was perfect for us (4 adults - one who is an amputee) It has all of the amentities and items needed to cook when we wanted, to make blender drinks, and to feel like we were at a home away from home! Charles and Eddie were super to deal with while on resort, helping us navigate on cool places to visit, where to get fresh fish from and then even cooking it with/for us at the community BBQ!
The resort is clean - the maintenance crew work around the clock making sure that everything is just perfect. The Pool is clean, and a perfect temp, the hot tub is such a great way to finish the day. The beach was a bit windy (typical for the time of the year that we were there) - but that was the best part beacuse of the Wind surfers who kept us entertained - We saw Sea Turtles swim right off the shoreline, lots of fish, and we even saw a sting ray. The beach was quiet, we had the whole beach to oursevles, which made it feel like we were on a private island :)
We truly enjoyed being out of town, away from the hussle and bussle of Grace Bay - We rented a car from Scooter Bob's and we had no issues with driving, we went into town to explore difference beaches, tour around to look at the homes on the island, and to eat at the local cuisine! Every night we would come home and go for a swim and a hot tub to finish off the evening in a relaxing way!
If you are looking for a chance to unwind, relax and feel like you are in paradise - Northwest Point is definately the spot to do it at!
Lisa will make sure that you have the best experience - I can guarantee you that!
Thank you Lisa for everything - we had a blast, we can't wait to return!
Secluded and tranquil

I myself rely on these reviews so here goes mine.
We got a condo through AirBnb. (I guess all the units are privately owned) being our first time in TCI, I wanted to experience the magnificent turquoise waters but stay somewhere affordable and still nice as the island is very expensive. And this was it! The entire week we drove around (you will definitely need to rent a car) and came to the conclusion that this was a great decision. Resort is lovely, clean, private, enough people there to not make it feel totally empty.
Just giving any first time travelers a heads up that this resort does not have the gorgeous beach that you see in magazines. You will need to take a 30 minute drive to the other part of the island (which we did daily not a problem)
Our favorite places were Sapodilla Bay, and of course Grace Bay that’s closer to the Eastern part of the island. There are no clear signs anywhere, we literally had to use lots of google maps, a map we found in a magazine, and just talking to other visitors to find out about places to go.
Another tip: ask the landlord if there are beach chairs and umbrellas available at your unit, otherwise you will be paying $40 for an umbrella and 2 chairs at public beaches if you decide to venture, and not all beach have those available so you will end up buying your own at the store.
I thought this was a funny tip from another traveler to pack favorite snacks, but when we went to the grocery store the prices weren’t funny at all! Packing things like trail mix and snack bars would have been awesome.
Everything on the island is very expensive including eating out. We didn’t anticipate on cooking but because of prices only ate out once a day, either late lunch or early dinners. Hope this helps ! The turquoise waters will take your breath away!
