House Hunting in the Turks and Caicos - The New York Times

With its strong building codes, convenient air-travel and use of the American dollar, the Caribbean archipelago is thriving as a destination for buyers and renters.
This three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom house reaches into the turquoise waters of Chalk Sound on the southern side of Providenciales, the most developed island in the Turks and Caicos archipelago. Known as Owl’s Nest, the half-acre property is about 10 miles west of Grace Bay, a popular resort and beach area.
Built in 1992 and renovated two years ago, the two-story, 3,538-square-foot, cedar-frame house has hurricane-rated windows and doors, as well as a 100-foot-long boardwalk that leads to a dock and sun deck.
The house enjoys “benefits from the reduced setbacks that have been grandfathered in,” said Sean O’Neill, managing director of Caribbean development and operations for The Agency, which has the listing. “As a result, the property sits right on the Sound.”
