With what has seemed like an endless period of staying at home and general doom and gloom, we’ve all thought about escaping to a laid-back island paradise with year-round warmth and enticing sunshine.
And as a trending destination for young families and empty nesters in search of a luxury second home, you can certainly make your grand escape to Turks and Caicos. These welcoming tropical islands provide an ideal haven for those looking for an accessible base in the Caribbean, alongside a vibrant and authentic way of life.
Turks and Caicos offers a more relaxed—but equally sophisticated—alternative to other overcrowded Caribbean islands like St. Barts or St. Maarten. Less tourists, a casual vibe, and plenty of things to do for children and adults alike make this destination a top choice for your new family home.
But the challenge of finding a second home on the Islands can be time-consuming, especially if you’re looking for a luxury residence built for modern living. There are myriad options available for you to choose from: those who prefer the more traditional aesthetic might opt for one of the many resort-based condos, or perhaps one of the grand single family residences—either way, it’s worth investing the time to ensure you’ll have access to the conveniences and finishing touches you’re used to.
For those looking for a newly constructed home with a modern, yet timelessly organic aesthetic, The Strand is a brand new private residential community in the heart of Cooper Jack Bay on Providenciales island.
This is the first development of its kind to embrace an architecturally unique, contemporary look that complements Cooper Jack Bay’s natural landscape. This exclusive community is built for discerning buyers looking for state-of-the-art living with responsible design in mind.
Regardless of where you choose to escape to, here are three reasons why you should consider securing your next home-away-from-home in Turks and Caicos.
1. You’ll enjoy sophisticated island living amid the natural beauty of Turks and Caicos
The Turks and Caicos Islands are a collection of naturally beautiful isles with pristine white sand beaches, picture-perfect turquoise waters, and thriving biodiversity. Of all the Caribbean islands, Turks and Caicos offers one of the most luxurious standards of living with its unspoiled natural wonders and opulent amenities.
Given that Turks and Caicos is home to some of the most spectacular ocean landscapes in the world, there’s a huge focus on preserving the land’s natural features and promoting the protection of biodiversity to keep its exquisiteness intact for future generations to come.
Providenciales Island is a great place to relax with the whole family and offers a high quality of life, along with the surrounding areas. Whatever your preferred level of activity, you and your family can enjoy pursuits like deep sea fishing, jet skiing, swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, sailing, golfing or simply sunbathing on beaches considered to be the world’s most stunning. There are plenty of things to do on the islands that cater to many preferences (even your moody teens)!
As a resident of a luxury private community like The Strand, you won’t even need to venture far to take advantage of some these leisure activities—there’s an onsite Owners’ Club right at the center of the community, offering a program of meticulously planned events, deluxe excursions, and organized activities for Club members, and their families and guests.
2. You can enjoy generous tax advantages and opportunities as a homeowner in Turks and Caicos
Owing to its status as a British Overseas Territory, the archipelago’s relative political and economic stability delivers peace of mind for international visitors looking to plant roots in the country. Turks and Caicos uses the U.S. dollar as its main currency―making it relatively simple for you to go about your day-to-day business on the island with minimal fuss.
The Islands also offer a low tax jurisdiction. Other than the one-off Stamp Duty due when you purchase your new home in Turks and Caicos, there aren’t any ongoing property taxes you’ll need to pay on your new home, and there are no income or capital gain taxes either.
And not only that—being a homeowner will pave the way for you to apply for permanent residency status in Turks and Caicos to take advantage of the favorable personal and business-related tax benefits.
3. The Turks and Caicos Islands are accessible and well-connected to the rest of the world
You can find The Strand’s private luxury development a mere 20 minutes away from Providenciales International Airport. From there, you’ll have straightforward access to and from major city hubs in the U.S., Canada, and the U.K. both by private jet and with commercial airlines—and direct commercial flights arrive daily, so you won’t have to wait long to greet your visiting guests.
If you prefer island hopping by boat, being able to plan your leisurely excursions on a whim is a big plus. Choosing to set up home at The Strand gives you access to a private marina with yacht slips—so you can visit all 40 of the islands that make up Turks and Caicos as you please.
