Another great vacation at Villa Cecilia
This is our second year staying at Villa Cecilia, and we had another memorable vacation! It is such a nice getaway where one can truly escape and focus on what really matters in life!! Chrischelle met us at the ferry and it was like seeing family. She remembered our boys and was quick to help us load all of our luggage into our rental car. A quick drive and it was to the house. It was just as we had remembered. The view was still as spectacular as ever!! The boys remembered "their" rooms from last year and quickly made themselves at home. We had Chrischelle stock the home with groceries again, which I would highly recommend. We also brought a cooler of frozen meats and other items, as well as an entire suitcase of supplies. Again we found that the house had plenty of dishwashing detergent, as well as some detergent for the washing machine. However, we also brought washing detergent so we could just wash instead of bringing so many clothes. The beach was as perfect as ever. There was nobody staying in the houses next door, so we pretty much had the beach to ourselves the entire week.
We enjoyed heading over to Mudjin Harbor and stopping for lunch at The Last Chance on our way back - I highly recommend stopping there. Howard was a gracious host. We also had lunch at the Barracuda Beach Bar - Clifford, the owner, is a delight to talk with. We spent some time at Three Mary Cays, but the seas were too rough for any swimming or snorkeling with our small boys (8, 6, and 3). And honestly, when having the beach at Villa Cecilia, we found that there was no reason to leave it!!
We did get bothered by no-see-ums this year -- we didn't get bothered by them last year. But we all got bit on our legs and arms. It wasn't a deal breaker, but I will definitely be prepared for next year. Also the drain in the second bathroom didn't work for taking a bath, but the shower worked. The other bathtub worked fine. We let Chrischelle know of this, and I'm sure it will be fixed for next time.
All in all, it was a perfect vacation! Leaving was so sad and my boys still talk about going to North Caicos and ask when we can go back. Until next year....
