About the property

2 Bedroom Oceanfront Villa, Full Kitchen And Central A/C, one of only two on M/C

We have had over 22 years to get it right and in our opinion, it is now perfect having just refurbished the entire kitchen, master Bedroom, Shower and living room. Central A/C offered by only one other facility on Middle Caicos, the Royal Hideaway Luxury Townhouses... Queen size beds with extra sofa bed will assure your comfort as well as DVD and VHS players with hundreds of movies and music classics for all tastes. Or, you can simply lounge under our Tiki Hut on the beach called the Office for obvious reasons. Hire one of our guides or swim right off one of our beaches to catch Lobster and Conch for your dinner. Crystal clear waters with fish ready to be fed or photographed await you in the relatively calm reef protected Bambarra Bay of Middle Caicos. Explore the waters of East Caicos, one of the largest yet uninhabited islands in our hemisphere and which house some of the largest lobsters you'll ever see in as little 4 to 8 feet of water.

Challenge yourself to providing a fresh seafood dinner for your family or just enjoy the full kitchen or dine at the new Mudjin Bar and Grill or Danny's , our local island restaurants. Share these magical moments with your children as I have done for over the past 35 years. ' Priceless ' ..

Travel across our newly refurbished causeway and visit North Caicos, abundant with shops, restaurants and grocery stores. We are now offering packages to include Rental Cars or Vans as well as Kayaks and Standup Paddle Boards to enjoy the vacation of a lifetime at an affordable cost.

About Milena P Zebo

I was a dreamer all of my life such as you might be and I always wanted to own a piece of a rock in the middle of some tropical ocean when I could pursue my hobbies of Fishing, Diving, Spearfishing, hunting Lobster and Conch as well as my true love of nature and underwater photography.

I am now living my dream as you can see by the many pictures of my family and I enjoying our creations and what nature provides.

I built my first house on Grand Turk and then migrated to Middle Caicos when I found this relatively uninhabited hidden island paradise with some of the friendliest people in the hemisphere welcoming me with open arms and sharing their hiidden treasure beneath the waves. I had never seen such natural beauty with crystal clear water and fish just waiting to be fed or photographed. I had ventured in the past tover 20 different islands and countries but never encountered such raw beauty boasting a bountiful ocean still unspoiled by tourism or commercial design. I dropped permanent anchor and I am still here after 35 years enjoying the fruits of my labor...

Milena P Zebo purchased this house in 1993

Why Milena P Zebo chose Middle Caicos

I bought this piece of my hidden caribbean paradise because it offered me everything I had ever dreamed of and thought impossible because all other paradises seemed to be taken or lost to excessive tourism and commercial greed.

The fact that the Turks and Caicos were British and offered tax haven status was also a big factor and so I quietlt started purchasing private generation land and building units for our selves and like minded individuals.

We are the largest yet least inhabited island in this island archipelago with only 300 full time residents.

That is starting to change now that we have a causeway linking us to North Caicos, Restaurants, Grocery stores and Building materials. 8 new houses are planned for this coming year alone in addition to several new villas, both on and off the beach as well as a magnificent Townhouse complex, the Royal Hideaway...

Come and enjoy this piece of paradise long before it is truely discovered. At one time we were a hideaway for the rich and famous but with celebraties such as Bruce Willis, Donna Karan and Cindy Crawford moving virtually next door, this serenity wont last long. We sold over 160 lots in past 6 years and so we have truly been discovered.

Not only do you get the opportunity to enjoy our hidden paradise if even for a short while, we offer you an opportunity to virtually get 50% of your rental monies back as a partial deposit if you buy one of our many beautiful lots .. Call for additional information

What makes this house unique

Five miles of pure white sandy beach await you with a fresh tropical breeze coming off the water with little of no humidity.

You will be surprised by the comfort level and amenities we have strived to perfect over the years. Newly renovated kitchen, Living Room, Master Bedroom and Living Room await you. Outside shower recently installed to allow you to rinse of the oceanic salt water and relax in comfort....

In house car rentals and water sports equipment such as Kayaks and Standup Paddle Boards, Peddle boat and motorized flats boats and a newly arrived Dinghy will surely add to your enjoyment and exploration of our island. We offer the 3rd largest coral reef structure in the entire world. The best part is that this reef formation is just a 1/2 mile offshore with many many coral outcroppings located and fully accessible directly from our shore unlike any other island in this archipelago.

What are you waiting for Call Me !

wonderful relaxing family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time in this affordable house.

We loved :

- "The Office" for afternoon happy hours with Bambarra Cuba Libres.

- having the whole beach to ourselves and the water changes colors- shades of greens and blues right before your eyes

- walking out at low tide and snorkeling at Pelican Cay

- taking family photos in front of the newly painted colorful Tiki Huts

- adventures to snorkel Three Mary Cays in North Caicos and walk on the deserted Wild Cow Run ( we added some fishing floats/treasures to the Office walls)

- exploring Dragon Cay at Mudjin Harbor- we had one great calm day to snorkel and the other day was too windy so we collected seashells and sea glass

- dining at My Dee's, Miss B's and Mudjin Bar and Grill ( Susan shared some great info)

Milena was super helpful and quick to respond to our questions- organized rides to and from the ferry!

And everyone we met on Middle and North was very friendly and welcoming to share their beautiful spot.

Already trying to figure out when we can return....

Almost like a deserted island!

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfect for a family that is looking for some beach time and little to no interaction with nightlife and/or entertainment. The property is in very good condition with an ideal location on Bambarra! You are provided everything that you need to have an excellent vacation. Mr. Forbes was very accomodating and made sure to check on us and helped us with anything that we asked for including travel arrangements. Mr. Forbes is what we look for in good property manager.

The beach was PERFECT! You could swim, snorkel and comb and not see anyone in a week. Windy which is good to keep the bugs down so bring deet and your own snorkel gear.

We will be going back to this property as that it gives us the perfect level of what we look for in our vacations!

AMAZING! 5 miles of beach all to yourself!

  • 5 of 5

AMAZING property and very helpful staff!

We spent our first 5 nights of our honeymoon in the Shangri-La Villa and it was AMAZING. These guys really have this whole process down to a science!

We were picked up by at the airport by "Mr. Charlie" who was one of the most amazing drivers. Charlie then brought us to stock up on groceries at the local grocery store. Don't worry about how much stuff you get because there is plenty of room on the ferry for whatever you buy. Charlie then took us to the ferry (about 30 minutes total from the airport, plus the grocery stop). Charlie helped us get everything to the dock and the ferry guys helped load everything in. Charlie's fee is $50. The ferry then took us to Middle Caicos which was a breathtaking ride. The ferry is $50 per person (round trip including taxes).

When we arrived in Middle Caicos we were greeted by Junior. He helped us get all of our stuff into the car and drove us to the Shangri-La Villa. After helping us unload everything, giving us a tour of the property and his phone number in case of any issues, Junior left us to our honeymoon. I thought this entire process was going to be stressful, but it was the exact opposite. There is no need to worry about getting to the villa from Provo, they have it all figured out and will take care of you.

The villa is a beach house split in 2, so you will have neighbors, but they are good people and gave us a ton of helpful advice. The villa had everything we needed to cook all of our meals. We cooked most of our meals on the charcoal grill (bring your own charcoal and lighter fluid).

The beach is about 300 feet from the villa which makes for the short walk. We didn't see anyone else on the beach (besides our neighbors) for the first 5 days. On the day we were leaving, we saw 2 other couples on the beach, but that is it. The beach is about 5 miles of perfection all to yourself!

We also found the most amazing mini-reef a 3/4 mile walk west on the beach. It was about only 10 - 20 feet into the water and was well worth the walk!

We spent a couple days exploring the entire island and found some pretty amazing stuff. Mudjin Harbor, the tiki huts and Indian caves are all MUSTS.

North Caicos (30 minute drive) has all the restaurants (Miss B's on Wednesday is a must!), liquor store and grocery stores.


Bring your own TP and paper towels!

Bring lot of bug spray as the mosquitos and gnats can be bad

Snorkel stuff is extra

beautiful beachside back-to-nature

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 8 glorious days at this well equipped, 2 bedroom beach house. A truly remote, peaceful and natural environment. Put on a hat, some sunscreen, pull up a lounge chair and enjoy having a beach to yourself. Excellent kitchen, very comfortable, good mattresses. We had a great trip and can`t wait to return.
