Our Story

Hi! We are Kim and Darren. We own Harpers Haven. This villa is our home away from home. We live in Canada and spend the winter months in Turks & Caicos.

In 2008 we took a trip from our homes in Ontario to visit some friends who moved to Turks & Caicos. We were well seasoned travellers of the Caribbean and nothing prepared us for how beautiful Turks & Caicos was. The vibe was so chill, the belongers (islanders) were so friendly and very helpful. The pace was perfect for us and for some reason felt very comfortable. As if we were in a cottage community at home! The food was out of this world, and everywhere we went we left shaking our heads in amazement at how wonderful the experience was. But the one thing that got us “hook line and sinker” was the water. The clear turquoise water is just unbelievable. After a one week stay we knew we had to have our own little corner of the island. On that very first trip we found a property in Grace Bay and claimed our own little piece of paradise.

Over the years we learned a lot about the island and dreamt of having a villa on the ocean. In 2023 that dream came true and we purchased Harpers Haven in the prestige Turtle Tail neighbourhood. Not only were we right on the ocean, we purchased a villa with a beach!

Harpers Haven is a family friendly spot, great for couples and nature lovers alike! We have an amazing property management team who is available to check you in and to make sure you have everything you need. We have decked the villa out to provide our guests with everything they need to have an amazing experience.

Book with us on this website, VRBO or Airbnb. We are an Airbnb SUPERHOST. I will will make sure your vacation needs are met!

Look forward to meeting you on our beautiful island!
