North Caicos Villa Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms + 3 Baths ...Sleeps 6 + 2 if sharing two of the BR

Since one photo worth 1000 words, at DATAI on North Caicos, we believe that the best way to discover our little piece of paradise is to pay a visit to our villa rental website. What we can tell you is that when our guests finally reach the villa, their first comment is :' wow... that's so much better than what you show on your website!!'

Of course, some home owners prefer Photoshoped photos and never show the rocky beach right in front of their villa... Would you appreciate the other way around if things were not at all as what you had been dreaming about for months. It is the real caribbean vacation on North Caicos at Datai Villa. Our 3BR+ 3Bath accommodates 6 guests and up to 8 if sharing space in 2 BR.

Whitby Heaven Beach is North Caicos genuine jewel … enjoy … it’s yours for one week.. or more. For the time of your stay you will be living like Robinsons in Paradise … no schedule… no trouble. However, DATAI is a wired villa so if you wish you will be able to stay connected to the “real world”… Hum(?) DSL with WI-FI, Cable TV, telephone will keep you wired.

North Caicos Villa Rental Additional Services: One more important point... my wife, Martine, and I are living permanently on North Caicos so we will be there for you, to help in any matter and pamper you during your stay at our beachfront villa on North Caicos. If you want to avoid grocery shopping when arriving, just ask and we will do it for you! What about a Pizza or Quiche Loraine waiting for you in the oven, freshly baked for your first dinner at DATAI? Check out North Caicos Restaurants.

Isn’t that the best way to start relaxing? All your stay can be on the same pattern… if this is what to wish to! So... see you soon for a first and not the last visit at DATAI… !

North Caicos Traveling | Getting around the Island: Getting Around While taxis are available on North Caicos, there are also rental cars available. A car rental allows you much more independence to go shopping, visit North Caicos and Middle Caicos now accessible thanks to the new causeway built between the two islands. Remember to drive on the left side of the road. Also be careful, especially at night, as many locals walk or ride their bikes as a mean of transportation. The island pace is slow so take your time and enjoy the scenery. Various activities are available and can be arranged island tour packages, scuba diving, snorkelling, fishing trips and cruises. We have 2 KAYAKS and two BICYCLES available … at no charge

North & Middle Caicos Activities: North Caicos and Middle Caicos offer an opportunity for guests to explore a different side of the Turks and Caicos. Datai Villa owners will introduce you the islands boasts incredible beaches, a varied coastline and an extensive cave system. To explore North and Middle Caicos beauties Datai Villa and Big Blue Unlimited a local company will help you design custom adventures combining a variety of activities like diving, snorkelling, exploring or kiteboarding in Turks and Caicos crystal clear shallow waters.

Guestbook comments from the owner
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!!!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5
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.

We LOVE Datai!

  • 5 of 5
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!

Owner's Response: After so many visits, when both of you are back to Datai, we are no longer welcoming " guests" but "FRIENDS". After 15 years renting our villa, we start to have friends all over the world.
Thant's great! Thanks again for sharing your feeling with more travellers to come.
See you next time. Jean-Louis & Martine

Absolutely Beautiful Home -- a Real Stunner!

  • 4 of 5
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.

Owner's Response: Thanks Judy for all of these compliments on our Datai.
I'm a bit disappointed the 4 stars you gave to your stay just because North Caicos is still an undeveloped island... Usually this is what our guests are looking for. We have never promoted our island as a "Little Miami" . Anyway... the most important to us is that you enjoyed our villa.
By the way... As offered when checking in, I could have cooked for you ... at a much better price than where you went for lunch! Maybe next time.
All the very best to every of your friends who joined you at Datai. J-L & Martine

Beautiful, comfortable, clean and very relaxing

  • 5 of 5
Three couples traveled to North Caicos and shared this villa. It was so nice to have the 3 bedrooms with bathrooms. There was plenty of room for all 6 of us. The villa is absolutely lovely! Sitting on the deck in the am with coffee listening to the birds and ocean is the only way to start the day. The kitchen was supplied with nice cooking equipment, dishes etc. making it very easy to prepare meals.
Jean-Louis prepared pizza for our first night which I highly recommend. The pizza was wonderful! We were tired from traveling all day so it was nice to be able to sit and relax with dinner at the villa.
We used the bikes to make quick trips to the grocery for odds and ends. Having the kayaks available was a big plus as it is only a few feet to the ocean.
All in all I would highly recommend Datai as a totally beautiful and relaxing place to spend time. Jean-Louis and Martine are delightful people!

Thanks so much for this lovely review.

It's been a real pleasure to have you home and we hope to welcome you again at Datai in a near future.
All the very best.

Maybe should I think about opening a Pizzeria on North Caicos!!! :-))

Beautiful Private Getaway

  • 4 of 5
Datai Villa and it's setting are absolutley breathtaking!!! Jean-Louis and Martine, the owners of the Villa were very accomodating and had everything ready for our arrival. My husband and I were looking for a private location away from tourists to be on our own and do absolutely nothing and Datai Villa on Whitby Beach was the perfect spot! The Villa was one of the nicest on the islands and waking up to the beach every morning was wonderful. We were the only vacationers for miles and we had everything to ourselves! We went kyaking, rented a car and went on some bike rides to other scenic parts of the island and an old cotton plantation. There are always excusions that you can sign up for if you want more to do, but our mission was to lay in the sun by ourselves without being bothered. We walked the beach everyday and picked huge conch shells right out of the water. The only reason I did not give this location 5 stars is because I got eaten alive by sand fleas the first couple of days until I started using bug spray (I was warned), but when you're in the tropics that can be didn't ruin our trip for anything! If you're looking for a peaceful private getaway with breathtaking views, this is the place to be!

Better than advertised!

  • 5 of 5
6 of us (all adults) stayed at Datai and could not have been more satisfied with the villa. Plenty of room, but you'll want to spend you time outside on the gorgeous beach or lounging on the property. Jean-Louis was a wonderful host helping make sure our stay was perfect. I'd also recommend his cooking - particularly on arrival so you can relax and enjoy the villa and amazing beach. This is the place to get away from it all. Also, everyone we met on the island was very friendly. We'll be back!
