What's perfect holiday meaning to you?? a CARIBBEAN island... a BEACHFRONT VILLA... in the TURKS & CAICOS ISLANDS... and maybe, why not on NORTH CAICOS???
DATAI is the place you were dreaming of... located on a beach you ever fantasied to live on...
IN ANCIAN MALAIS, DATAI meant 'the path toward enlightenment'... This will be your own feeling as soon as arriving to the villa. Our beachfront property is located on North Caicos endless stretch of beach of Whitby Haven. Our beach is just of white sand... no rocks at all to hurt your feet! Be careful ... it's not the same all along the shore ! Datai is offering all you can expect to spend the most peaceful and enjoyable vacation you ever dreamed. What to see on our website (www.datai-villa.com) is what you will get when arriving.
NO PHOTO-SHOPED PHOTOS!
One important point that make all the difference is that my wife and I are living full time on the island... just few villas away... so we are there to help you. Any thing you need... just ask! You will get 3 kayaks, and bicycles free of charge. Although being secluded and located on the most private beaches of TCI, DATAI is wired to the ' real world'.TV, WI FI Internet, and telephone will keep you connected to 'real life'. A well loaded videotech will entertain you after a long day on the beach.
Kayaks, bicycles, ping pong table for the sportiest... Hammock and long-chairs for those needing to relax and recover from exhaustive city-life.
You don't wish to go for grocery shopping... you want someone cooking for you... cleaning for you... we are there to arrange everything for you! Just ask for!
Hopefully after this first stay at Datai, you will join our 'fan club' and we will have the great pleasure year after year to welcome you at 'HOME'.
Life on North Caicos is just 'homey' ... nothing fancy... but you will go back home with ' souvenirs ' of this genuine lifestyle and all the new friends you discovered. No Casino... golf course (on island)... shopping centre.... even Provo looks now like a Lill Miami.... On North you will reconnect with family, friends, and even yourself. you will rediscover ( if forgotten) the real life in perfect harmony with mother nature...
COMMON... we are longing to have you 'HOME'.

We purchased our first piece of land on North Caicos in 1997. Our dream came true. Datai was completed in 1999, just on time to celebrate the wedding of our second child, our son Maxence with Chloé.
That was on January the 2nd 2000. They became the first new married of this new millenium in whole Turks & Caicos. Each of our nine grand children experience his first vacation 'far away' from Dad and Mom at Datai. This explain why we cherish so much this 'home' . It's not just a rental place... it's our baby our home and we are happy to welcome you there , at DATAI .Martine and I have decided all the sudden to move down for good from Montreal to North Caicos in 2004... We have spent these 11 years building other houses and improving the existing ones.
Our Datai became year after year a gathering place for friends and families, a place where to ressource and rejuvenate, a place were you have enough time to do... NOTHING!!!
Be part of the gang... come enjoy our piece of paradise.

My first trip to North Caicos could not have been better. As I walked up to the turquois entrance door of the house we rented it made me feel like I had officially begun my vacation. It was when I opened that turquois entrance to the deck between the main house and guest house that I felt as though I was living in the postcard of Turks and Caicos. Breathtaking! The painted entrance door was a perfect match for the turquois water that you see just as you open the door. A boardwalk led us down to the ocean which was just a short distance to the water, as the house was beachfront. The owner of the property had our meal waiting for us and had given us options to select prior to our trip. Honestly, it was the best pizza I have ever eaten. Not only is the house spotless, beautiful and functional, the owner can really cook and was most helpful with guidance of places to go and people to call for day trip or to buy fresh seafood. We bought lobster one night and conch another. The weather was beautiful and it only rained a couple of times but it did not keep us from going and doing as we wanted. Our dining out consisted of trips to Mudjin, which is on Middle Caicos, and the food was amazing, and Miss B's which is on North Caicos and again amazing. The people who ran the establishments could not have been nicer. The house we rented had 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Very accommodating. There was a hammock in the yard as well as an outdoor shower to keep the sand out of the house. You will need bug spray because there are little bitty bugs that will get you and you will not even realize it because you are so preoccupied with the natural beauty of the island. The beach was all ours for the 7 days and we saw only 2 or 3 people on it other than ourselves the entire time we were there. Most days we saw no one:) It really was like living inside a postcard,... beautiful, peaceful, safe and wonderful. I would go again in a heart beat and I would definitely have Jean-Louis Renaud's pizza!!!
If you are searching for an unspoiled Island, this is it. Best of all, Datai villa is a lovely property decorated with impeccable taste, on beautiful 7 mile Whitby beach. Jean-Louis and Martine are wonderful hosts, going out of their way to make your stay simply unforgettable. Time disappears! Great services also from Island locals like Big D and his snorkeling trips and Cheese of Easy car rental. We were 4 girl friends at Datai villa, mature women and "picky" people I would say, and we found there true luxury and beauty. As the song goes, Who could ask for anything more?
Everything was excellent and exactly as advertised. The house is fantastic -- wonderful view, amazing beach right out the door, clean, comfortable, and has everything you need at the house. Jean-Louis arranged groceries and also cooked us a few meals, which were great. He is also very helpful as far as what to do on the island. If you are looking for a relaxed, very quiet vacation on a beautiful beach this is your place!
We were very impressed with the hospitality of Jean-Louis and the island of North Caicos. A truly amazing vacation. If you're looking for serenity this is the place. The pictures are accurate and the description of the villa was spot on. Just make sure to grab groceries on Provo before you take the ferry to the island, the local stores have a limited selection basically necessities.
Before we traveled to North Caicos we stayed on Provo. There is a lot more to offer on that island, more touristy. As we enjoyed Provo, the North was more our thing. Secluded, quiet, beautiful empty beaches, friendly people and not much development. We enjoyed everything from reading books on the beach, snorkeling, beach combing, kayaking, and site seeing. We visited Mudjin Harbor and Bambara Beach on Middle Caicos, Three Mary's Cays and Horsestable Beach. All highly recommended.
We would defenitely recommend Datai to anyone wanting to get away from it all. Looking forward to visiting again!
Had a terrific stay at Datai last week. Took the family (we have 2 teenage boys), and had a great stay. Jean Louis could not have been nicer and more helpful in making sure all of our needs were taken care of prior to arrival, upon arrival and during our stay. He and his caretaker Regine wanted to ensure our stay was as special as possible.
The house is terrific and well laid out to make you feel at home from the moment you arrive. It is well appointed with just about everything you could need for a great beach vacation. There is a beautiful beach (Whitby Beach) just steps out the back door with great snorkelling, swimming, sea-kayaking, walking or just sitting. It is also well located in realtion to several great beaches or North and Middle Caicos. We had a terrfic time traveling to beautiful beaches at Sandy Point, 3 Mary Cays, Mudjin Harbor, and even all the way down to Cedar Point. Additionally there is a great market and liquor store a short drive from the well located house.
Jean Louis and Regine were nice enough to also hook us up with great folks to get us from the airport to the ferry, a rental car, and one of the nicest and best fishing guides, our new friend Big D (Dedrick). All in all this is a terrific house with an owner and caretaker that want to ensure you have as special a vacation as possible. I highly recommend you give it a try.
This was, I think, our 4th or 5th visit to Datai and hopefully not our last. We've been priviledged to travel to many locations all over the Caribbean and our #1 first choice is North. The villa is outstanding and the setting on the beach sublime. Everything is always just as represented on the site. We love knowing you and Martine are just a few yards down the beach just in case we have a question or want some of your gourmet cooking!!!
We'll keep our fingers crossed for the next opportunity to get a piece of paradise!
I will mirror all the other reviews and say that this home was absolutely beautiful and MUCH lovelier than the photos describe. The house is impeccably clean and spacious and lovingly appointed with warmth and charm. Jean Louis is a sweetheart and is very eager to make your stay as pleasurable as possible.
Some practical tips– there is not a great variety of restaurants and what there is – is VERY expensive ($80 lunch at the Barracuda Grill for two fish sandwiches and two local bears a piece – ouch!). We brought a ton of frozen meat and luncheon food in a portable cooler and were really glad we did – saved us a fortune. The kitchen is very well appointed with pots, pans, plates, etc but there is nothing by way of spices, oil, sugar, etc so – if you plan to cook at the house, bring everything you will need food-wise. You can purchase stuff at the local grocers but variety is very limited and, again, very costly.
Three Mary Kay has some of the best snorkeling I have ever seen. I went around 3pm when there was little wind and I had to have seen at least 30 different varieties of fish in my first five minutes. Unfortunately, I encountered a five-foot sand shark which spooked the “you-know-what” out of me but Jean Louis promised me that these sharks are totally harmless!
The only reason I gave Datai 4 stars instead of 5 is because the island itself was a little disappointing. The beaches are stunningly beautiful but there is little else to do here. The rest of North Caicos is pretty uninspiring. People have said that this is a place to come to “unplug” and, yup, that’s true ….. very true. If you really want nothing more than to lie on the beach with several good books, take advantage of a rather impressive movie collection in the evenings (thanks to Jean Louis) and enjoy sun and solitude, than this is your dream house. The house is absolutely lovely and you will not be disappointed.
If your vacation interest is NATURE, NATURE, NATURE... DATAI on North Caicos is THE place you want to discover. North Caicos is the most friendly island ever. You will arrive with hopes.. you will return home with 'NEW FRIENDS'... already longing for your next visit. Please pay a visit to our brand new website to get more information on ' where to go' , 'what to visit' , 'what to expect'...
My wife , Martine and I are living on North Caicos so we are 100% available to help you to make of these holidays a great 'souvenir'.
If and When you will needing help we will be there.
We can be like your virtual guides on the islands. We know them well after living there for more than 10 years. And if 'doing nothing' ... ' farniente'.... 'tirer une flemme' ... 'nichts zu ten' is your favourite activity :-)) ... be happy, Datai on the beach is THE best place for you if you are looking to become the GUINESS RECORD LAZZY BOY.
So... see you there... alone or with your companion... with friends or family. Kids are welcome (if they don't brake everything)
