This means you will have the ENTIRE gated 7 acre oceanfront estate all to yourselves. Breathtaking views looking out toward Parrot Cay, sunsets are unobstructed all year and they will leave you speechless, and there are no words for the water. Jodo is on the Leeward side of the island, which means CALM waters all day, & unobstructed sunset views year round. Sandy Point will not flood out, you are assured of calm serenity!
You might not see another person on the beach the entire week !!! You will have use of an electric car on property to explore or to just scoot around & be lazy. There is a 'state of the art' UV FIVE stage water filtration system in place = you don't have to buy bottled water or ice...this is the best on market! The finest materials were used including granite counters, marble floors, custom staircase/railings, so many luxurious amenities that blend in so uniquely with nature it creates the perfect balance that cannot be duplicated. Enjoy your own PRIVATE beach, the water, shells, nature, each other....there is no schedule here, you will not find a clock on the property.

This is the Caribbean as it should be, as it used to be, where smiles are more important than shopping malls, seeing pink flamingos flying over you & manta rays swim by is more meaningful than which restaurant to eat at. The new friends you make will become precious gems more valuable than any diamond. JODO becomes a part of you, it is a magical piece of land that the owner has meticulously attended to every detail. Everything you place your eyes upon has a story, become apart of the magic that is JODO.

Building on a remote Caribbean island began as a twinkle in the eye. You quickly learn how difficult it can be. It has become a great classroom with many 'forgiveness opportunities'. Being on the other end of the process, the experiences have brought wisdom, patience and the challenge to find good in situations while testing your will.
The real friendships, great experiences and laughter are what will bring you back again & again for more.
You realize how much we take for granted every day and what is really meaningful in life. Was it worth it - ABSOLUTELY!!! DREAMS DO COME TRUE
JODO was not purchased second hand, JODO was built from scratch by John with much love, heart & a spirit that will never ever quit! JODO is ever evolving, and wants you to contribute....a tree, a shell, something that leaves a piece of your soul at JODO. It's all about the love.
John Farren purchased this villa in 2000
JODO...is a magical property that you can feel in your soul. It has taken more than 5 years to build & has not been easy, but the property deserves only the best! JODO is pure land & is difficult to describe in words, you will feel the positive energy in your veins. There is a 'story' behind almost every detail, if it were all in a book - you wouldn't believe it! It is an adventure that has to be experienced to be understood. Jodo will become a part of you. If you are ready for a unique and special experience to fill your heart with JOY....look to JODO.
JODO is constantly giving back to the community. We want to be honored stewards of this precious land. I wish you could meet every beautiful soul that works so hard behind the scenes to make JODO magical! JODO is a part of them, and of me..... we want it to be a part of you.
When you step onto the 7 Private Gated Oceanfront Acres of Jodo, it will stir emotions deep within you. You will know you made the right choice. Situated on Sandy Point, it overlooks Parrot Cay and provides constant entertainment through nature. Unobstructed breathtaking sunsets all year round, Jodo cannot be matched. Time will cease and you will truly live in the NOW. Jodo quietly whispers to be shared - will you listen?
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!! It was everything we were looking for and then some. Definitely 5 stars!! The villa was wonderful, the amenities were excellent and we truly soaked up the atmosphere everyday. The water, beach and sunsets were amazing and we utilized the kayaks, paddleboards, nemo, the hammock, and even the floating rafts. We explored the island with the "peacefinder" and took in the fish fry from Miss B's and lunch at The Last Chance. Mark was very helpful and always accommodating. Grey was great as well....he was waiting for us at the airport, took us to the IGA in Provo and off the ferry and then was waiting for us on our return. Everything went so smooth without a hitch. We did not see a single soul during our stay at the villa, which was exactly what we were looking for...a private and secluded honeymoon getaway!! When we did go into town, the locals were so friendly and accommodating as well. We will definitely be back and perhaps bring friends or family with us next time. I highly recommend JODO to everyone and will definitely spread the word about your paradise. I thank you for all your communications and assistance in helping make our trip easy to plan for and for putting such a wonderful villa together to share with the world! It was a tremendous experience that we will remember forever!!
Truly amazing. The house has everything you need and the entire team was friendly and accommodating.
Food was our biggest worry and it turned out to be a non issue. Just make sure you do your shopping in Provo for your big items. They will have plenty of staple items in North. And the best time to shop on north is either Tuesday or Wednesday as the new shipment comes in on Monday night.
North Cacios is truly a special place with the old world Caribbean feel and we will return sooner than later. We loved the people and culture of these islands and Never felt unsafe or worried about anything or anyone. Our biggest highlight was the valentines day regatta where we came in second place in our class!
Make sure you rent a car and see the islands! We toured around and found some amazing spots! If you are thinking of visiting these islands don't hesitate. It was our best vacation ever. Period.
I looked at a lot of countries, hotels, bungalows, underwater vessels and other pretty unique destinations before I decided to to take my soon to be fiancé to JODO (yes, we actually got engaged here).
It was a great decision. We stayed at the guest house, but the name really doesn't do it justice since it's bigger than the house I grew up in. It's located beautifully on a private beach with nothing to bother you but the very occasional fishing boat going by in the distance. We were there for 8 days and didn't see a single human near our beach. Being from New York City, that was exactly what we were looking for. And, believe me, there is no better place to sip piña coladas, read books and just relax than JODO's Tiki Hut.
But if you're feeling adventurous the house has everything you need for a day trip, snorkeling equipment, kayaks, paddle boards and, of course, the "The Piece Finder" car for day trips around North Caicos or even Middle Caicos. there's even a set up for late night bonfires. Highly recommended.
On top of the very special place and island, John and Mark (the property manager) are nothing but the perfect hosts. They're easy going, yet accommodating and everything from when you land in Provo to when you leave again is thought of.
In other words: if you're looking for a special, private and relaxing getaway, you found it.
My wife and I were looking for a secluded getaway for our honeymoon. JODO was everything we were looking for and then some. Definitely 5 Stars!! The villa was wonderful, the amenities were excellent and we truly soaked up the atmosphere everyday. The water, beach and sunsets were amazing and we utilized the kayaks, paddleboards, nemo, the hammock, and even the floating rafts.

We spent the week of New Years at JODO in the main villa and found just what we had hoped for - a peaceful retreat right on a remote beach with no other people in sight. The large house exceeded our expectations - it's beautiful, new, and tastefully furnished, with wrap around patio doors to catch the trade winds. The gorgeous fully outfitted kitchen in the great room made it fun to cook with such an incredible view. Lots of toys outside for our use kept us in the water most of the day. Incredibly clear water and terrific snorkeling - we saw a small shark, a ray, lobster, an eel, and lots of colorful fish in the coral very near "our" beach. SUP boarding was terrific in the tranquil water of the bay, and kayaking all over gave us some great exercise and incredible views. Gray and Mac provided reliable transport to and from the ferry and Mark was so helpful - be sure to rent his vehicle so you can tour around, see Mudjin Harbor on Middle Caicos, and have a few great meals as we did at Miss B's. Also sleep in the air conditioning as the no see-ums can get through the screens at night - and use baby oil for bite protection in the morning and evenings. We had such a memorable time - all the great things you are reading in the reviews are true - we loved it there! We will be back!
I don't think we can say enough good things about our stay at Jodo! This will probably sound just like the previous reviews, but I know they are all accurate. First, I'll list some of our general impression, then some of our recommendations for future stays. As with any place, after visiting the first time, you get a good understanding of what you might do on the next visit. We do hope to visit Jodo again in the future.
This was the perfect place for us to unwind and get away from everything. We absolutely loved the seclusion and the peacefulness of the island. Mark, Mac, Gray, and the people that John has working with him, make the experience fantastic and truly worry-free. We loved having the items such as the snorkel gear and the kayaks at our disposal. Mark was very flexible in renting us his vehicle for a couple of days to tour and we liked using the golf cart on the property. We really did not hear any vehicles, watercraft, or planes during our stay. It was just us and the ocean, and the evenings were black with stars. We loved being on the beach and exploring north and middle Caicos on a couple days. During the 9 days, I think we only came across a handful of people on the Sandy Point area. Take a day or two and explore the rest of North and Middle Caicos. The people are very friendly and the beaches are beautiful. Thank you John for developing the perfect place to unwind and enjoy 9 days.
A few recommendations for future visitors and things we know that we would do a bit differently. Definitely bring bug spray and baby oil for the no-see-ums (sand fleas). As long as there is a breeze it is ok, but if the breeze dies, they can be troublesome in the evening. However, they were not too much of an issue. If you're going to be there for more than a few days, our recommendation is to stop with Gray (which we did) in Provo at the IGA to get groceries and plan meals. The groceries in North and Middle are more like convenience stores, but decent for a few small things. Beer is very expensive in North, so purchase it in Provo. Mark is very flexible with his rental cars, so definitely plan to rent it for a day or two to restock some supplies or tour the island. Jodo is pretty secluded so you'll need a vehicle to get to any of the stores or restaurants, unless you go to the cafe at the ferry dock. We found that all we needed was a car for 1-3 days during our 9 days since we loved spending nice quiet days at Jodo.
This was our third trip to North Caicos and our best trip of all! You can read all the reviews but they're all the same. Jodo is awesome. Everything you could possibly need is provided. The pictures just don't do it justice. The caretaker Mark is great. Be sure to rent a vehicle from him and see some of the island too, even though you won't want to leave Jodo. Jodo isn't just a name, it's a frame of mind. We can't wait to return. Thanks again!
Located on the CALM waters of Sandy Point North Caicos! This is the leeward side of the island = much calmer water for your kayaking & Paddleboarding fun! Sunsets that have no equal.
