Joy is what you want! Jodo is THE luxury vacation villa/estate available in the EXCLUSIVE Sandy Point, North Caicos. Newly finished, your choice of two villas or both! - everything is BRAND NEW. 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. We want you to have a total experience.....Jodo means Joy & Happiness...it is a state of mind!
So when little glitches happen, go Jodo !!!
We want you to be new friends that don't want to leave & can't wait to come back, we want you to think of us when your back home and your having a bad day - think of JODO & smile!!!
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.
Jodo is an adventure, an experience, an invitation to experience nature, and yourself on a deeper level, it can be a mirror of whatever you wish it to be....Jodo can fill your heart.
If you think solitude sounds appealing, are in need of something magically different, or just want to experience JOY that you will cherish.
Get in touch with us, we love making new friends!

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?
Yes, 5+ stars!
It was a super week. Your villa is outstanding and the location is perfect. It is a real privilege when folks like yourself place trust in others (strangers like us from far away;) to rent your special place and share in the experience. We have rented many villas over the years and we must say you have really nailed it for how to do it best. From pre-booking questions, to pre-trip, to in-trip and post-trip, it has all been excellent, first class and prompt. In fact, to anyone who is 'nervous' about going the villa rental route for the first time (I can remember our first try at it years ago!), I would say that you have created an experience and taken care of all the details to take any first-timer's worries away. Bravo to Mark, as well, and everyone from pickup services too (Mac and Gray)!
One of the highlights of our trip was on the last full day when we found a baby nurse shark pup basking in the shallows. Got some terrific closeup underwater photos!
I have some outstanding professional photos from the week and will share some as soon as I get a chance to edit the hundreds!
I thought it would be easy to write a review for Jodo, but how can you encapsulate such a wonderful place in words so that others can get a true sense of it? We spent countless hours searching for a VRBO on the different islands in the Caribbean before stumbling across Jodo in the beautiful Turks and Caicos Islands. If you are looking for nightlife, bars and restaurants, shopping, lots of people, touristy activities etc., then Jodo is not the place for you. If, however, you are looking for solitude, peace and tranquility, PRIVACY, a pristine beach for swimming, a perfect stretch of beach for walking, luxurious accommodations with all the amenities you can think of, all with breathtaking sunsets, then we cannot recommend a better place than Jodo. Just as everyone before us has said, the organization of the vacation was a breeze from the first to the last contact with John, the owner, and the entire Team Jodo. The few things we originally had concern of were complete non-issues: transportation, food, and safety. Once Mark got us settled in, he left us and we were literally in our own personal and private paradise for a week, while he was just a phone call away for anything we would have needed. We are people who rarely sit still and honestly cannot remember the last time we felt so relaxed. Our bodies were completely rejuvenated when we returned home. We did plenty of resting, napping, and meditating in the sun or in the shade of the tiki huts, however, we didn't sleep our vacation away! There is plenty to do right on the property! Paddle boards, kayaks, snorkeling equipment, etc. are all provided for guests to use along with Nemo, the little electric car that can be used to go from beach chair to house and back when you just don't feel like walking those few yards. :) We saw a few people, but only when we went for walks way down the beach or when we rented a car one day from Mark and ventured over to Middle Caicos. We feel like we are cheating this review as we could not possibly say enough positive things about John and the amazing place he has created and is willing to share with others. We would give it 10 stars if we could! Truthfully, the ONLY negative, was that we had to leave it. It was THE perfect place to spend our 25th anniversary and feel that, because of our choice in VRBO, this was a vacation that will truly be unmatched in our lifetime.
If you can swim this house is for you! The sun sets right into the water! Val loved the covered porch and the awesome Tiki hut to relax under. She loved to run on the isolated beach! My son Alexander (14) was inspired to paint two works of art to donate to Jodo for future guests to see. He and I loved the antique pool table and furniture. The ocean view is spectacular from the main house! It is Big and Awesome! The Guest house is also awesome ! It is a must to swim in the warm water at least twice a day! Mark will help to make you feel at home! He is committed to making your stay pleasant and worry free! We used Gray to pick us up at the airport and return 14 days later. He likes Toasted IGA roast beef on heated whole wheat. This is a great way to start your vacation adventure! Mack of M&M taxi on north will take you to the resort. He likes Dole strawberry Kiwi. Leave a little love where ever you go on the island. Feel free to adventure about in the peace finder. You will meet friendly people who like friendly people too! Once again the owner, John has made our vacation wonderful by Generously sharing Jodo Resort. Thanks, Matthew,Valerie and Alexander P.S. Visit Mudjin harbour too!
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 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!!
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!
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.
