The 3 Marys villa is an incredible property with a stunning, unique location. If you want a holiday where you truly "get away from it all" and are "off the grid," it's hard to think of a more ideal place than here. One can spend an entire day walking on the beach, swimming or snorkelling, windsurfing or just lying on the sand or by the pool taking in the sun and the views without seeing anyone not travelling with you. It's hard to overestimate just how splendidly isolated and tranquil this location is - yet the stunning natural beauty of the Caribbean and its marine life - especially the incredible fish, eels, etc. around the cays - and the variety of outdoor activities available mean than one is very unlikely to be bored here. Even on the occasional rainy day, watching the drops fall on the dunes and the sea while reading a book on a chaise under the covered & screened porch of your "pod" is blissfully relaxing.
The layout of the property allows each of the 3 residential buildings or "pods" to have complete privacy from one another and contain all amenities one needs (apart from a kitchen): full bathroom and storage space, individually controlled air conditioning or fully-screened windows on all four sides of the building for fresh-air ventilation, and a screened porch with two chaises longues in front of each, and very comfortable bedding. Because each building is connected to an independent boardwalk, it is possible to go to the kitchen in the living "pod" in the middle of the night without disturbing anyone you are travelling with who's staying in another pod; likewise, if you wake up earlier than your friends, you can use the pool or get down to the beach for an early-morning dip without waking anyone else up.
Despite its isolation on North Caicos - where there are no supermarkets, few paved roads, and only a couple of eateries - Parrot Cay with it's famous luxury resort & spa is only a short ferry-ride away, while the main island, Provo, is further but offers many amenities and several crossings per day.
Owner's Response: We're very glad you enjoyed your stay.
