The Villa derived its name from the Sanctuary of Poseidon on the southern tip of Attica. The temple is situated on a hill overlooking the cliffs and rocky shoreline.
Mythically, the rocky peninsula was the home of the Sirens. Their sweet songs tempting many a mariner to their death on the rocks. We invite you to invoke the spirit of Jason and Odysseus and ignore the songs of modern day Sirens. Bathe in sunlight and revel in the Ocean views as life takes on the pace of the Ancients.
Turks and Caicos Villa-Fifteen was finished in 2000 in a style reminiscent of heritage. The Marble that grace the floors, combine with Cycladic columns in relief and the stunning views form a relaxing backdrop to the cacophony colors of Modern Life depicted on the walls.
Feel welcomed! Overlooking the Swimming Pool and the Atlantic Ocean beyond, the large (30 x 18ft) Living Room is lavishly furnished. A mixture of Modern Art adorns the walls. Comfortable sofas and chairs afford relaxation to 10 adults. There is a Reflector 675 x 4.5" Telescope with a selection of lenses to view distant ships, the evening lights of Grace Bay or the romantic stars overhead.
Night-time viewing is best with as many lights OFF as possible around the Pool Area. The twins of Gemini, Castor and Pollux can be readily viewed in the overhead winter sky. It is perhaps no coincidence that these mythological brothers, trained by Hercules, accompanied Jason and the Argonauts to encounter the Sirens at Sounion! There is a full selection of entertainment equipment that resides in the large cupboard in the Living Room. Villa-Fifteen also provides a large selection of Videos, which are available for guest use.
The Villa has satellite reception from Direct TV. The satellite is integrated into the Stereo receiver, allowing input from satellite audio channels to be played throughout the Villa. The villa is also equipped with internet access and a fax. This features a large 10-seat Italianate table and offers formal dining when desired. The room is decorated with Modern Art, high ceiling fans and an Italian Marble floor. A full table setting for 10 is provided: Silverware/China/Wine & Water glasses.
Adjacent to the dining room is a Mini-Bar, a wine refrigerator (32 bottle capacity), the kitchen and a guest bathroom. There are several places to sit under the shade and enjoy the views. Imagine sitting here, reading a book and listening to the gentle ebb and flow of the waves or music from the main stereo system. There is an outdoor dining table adjacent. Dine on Royal Doulton outdoor crockery and drink from unbreakable Stahl glasses. A spacious, modern and airy Kitchen with commanding views of the Grace Bay and the Villa's Pool.
There are 2 informal dining areas outside the Kitchen - either the Veranda, overlooking the pool, or the Breakfast Balcony, overlooking the Sea. The Breakfast Balcony offers an impressive 180 degree view of Grace Bay, Thompson Cove and the Blue Mountains. The table sits 6 adults. A Barbecue is available for use on the Breakfast Balcony - stored either on the Balcony or the Garage. The Villa is cleaned twice a week by our staff - a light mid-week clean of the bedrooms and common areas and the major clean (normally) on the weekend.
There is a pristine coral reef yards from the dock which is a "fish nursery" where you can see all species of fish and turtles at certain times of the year. There are loads of fun and free activities to partake in while staying at the villa. Depending on the tide, you can walk along the shore to deserted Thompson Cove or hop in the car for an early morning walk on Grace Bay Beach.
The coral is the best on the island and you can best see all the fish, turtles, lobsters and octopus at dawn or dusk when they are feeding. This part of the reef is a fishery so you may see many juveniles which are usually a different color then their parents. You can also use the telescope in the living room to chart the heavens and find you star! One water pistol is provided per guest for wet and wild water fights, or ask Carla for the badminton net, rackets and shuttle cock and play in the drive outside the front of the villa.
If you want to do something more relaxing, there is a chess board with pieces in the living room or you can request Monopoly and poker from Carla when you check in to be returned before you leave.

"Thanks! We had a fabulous time on our trip and everyone commented that we couldn't have stayed at a better place... your house is amazing! We are considering going back to Turks & Caicos next year so I will remember your offer. Thanks again!"
"Thank you very much for use of your house in Turks & Caicos we all had a wonderful time the house was absolutely amazing reminded of something from MTV cribs! We thought Turks was a lovely chill out island where we got a lot of R n R. Hopefully we will get the opportunity to go again, once more many thanks!"
"We had a lovely time at Villa 15 (Villa Sounion)! Although our Wisconsin weather is cold, I'm still wearing sandals in an effort to keep a little Provo with me! The home is absolutely gorgeous, extremely well designed for vacationing, and very comfortable. We loved it! We love to cook and found the kitchen very well stocked also. We decided that if the home were ours, the only things we'd add would be an exercise room (treadmill, stationary bike) and a hot tub; but the house was certainly not lacking for anything. My kids loved your Far Side Collection! A wonderful vacation; we'd certainly recommend the home to our friends."
"We enjoyed our trip very much. The house was lovely and the kitchen was stocked with pots, pans, plates, cups, etc. The weather was simply fabulous. We all decided the only things we would change about the house would be to add an exercise room and mini refrigerators in the bedrooms. It really suited us quite well. The stereo was fantastic and you did a beautiful job decorating.... We like to try new things and are constantly looking for a different spot to vacation. We would certainly recommend it to others and will let you know about future use. Thanks again."
