Recently the world discovered that Providenciales is home to a stunning Caribbean hideaway belonging to the late singer Prince. Prince’s mansion in Turks and Caicos, an oceanfront property, features 10 bedrooms and a purple driveway, and is now on sale for $12 million.

When Prince bought the gated mansion in 2010 he had the driveway painted purple, his signature colour, and it was Prince’s idyllic retreat, away from it all in the Turks and Caicos. The mansion boasts 10,000 square feet of living space, jaw-dropping views of the turquoise Caicos Bight, two private beaches and star-class amenities that would guarantee privacy and luxury when the star was away from his home base in suburban (and, in the winter, chilly) Minneapolis.

The Purple Rain singer’s former Shangri La is set on a peninsula on the south side Providenciales – itself named the world’s best island. Provo is famous for its heavenly crystal clear waters, white sand beaches and exclusive properties, like Prince’s retreat.
Now that Prince has passed away, the complex is up for sale. If you have $12 million, this may be the place for you.
