ABOUT THE VILLA

This 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom private vacation oasis located in the unspoiled Pumpkin Bluff development on the Island of North Caicos is easily accessible by taxi from either the local airport or the Sandy Point ferry dock.

Once you arrive at the Villa you will enjoy nearly 4,000 square feet of thoughtfully designed and resplendently furnished living space. As you enter the foyer you will immediately catch the view of the pristine ocean through the large sliding doors that lead out to the patio from the formal parlor.

To the left of the formal parlor through the Mediterranean archway is the expansive leisure room with integrated breakfast nook. The Leisure room is surrounding by floor to ceiling sliding glass doors which offer panoramic views of the ocean and beyond. For your viewing pleasure, the Leisure room also has a 42' flat screen TV complete with a DVD player and a modest collection of DVDs.

THE KITCHEN

Even the most discriminating chef will appreciate the thoughtful design of this extraordinary gourmet kitchen with its stainless steel GE Profile Series appliance package. The center island was designed to be the chef's prep area. It features a prep sink with spray faucet, soap dispenser, and trash compactor. All of the appliances -- from the built-in double Microwave/Convection oven; 36 inch 5 burner glass cook-top; French Door Refrigerator with external water dispenser and bottom freezer drawer; dishwasher; and trash compactor -- are at your fingertips.

'Saint Cecilia' granite sits on chocolate glazed cream colored cabinets. There is a breakfast bar with stools for guests to sit and sip a glass of wine while the chef of the house prepares a delightful Caribbean meal.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We had the most amazing time at your home in N. Caicos. It was everything we were hoping for. Totally secluded and did not leave the property for 7 days and did not see another person except Chrishelle the whole time we were there. It was the perfect setting for our 2 and 3 year olds. You have a beautiful home and it was well kept with everything that we needed during our stay. Thank you for having the experience from arrival to departure be seamless and effortless."

An incredible family vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5
We have been home now 2 weeks from Villa Cecillia and constantly find ourselves remembering our week, looking at pictures and talking about what a great family holiday we had. We were initially going to shop for our groceries and bring them on the ferry but last minute had Chrischelle shop for us. I would absolutely not do it any other way. We are a family of 5 and with our luggage and the added groceries (plus trying to keep meat cold) would not have been an enjoyable way to start the trip. Chrischelle did a fantastic job picking up everything on our list (and it was a long one!). Chrischelle was also very helpful before we arrived as I had emailed her many questions.
The villa is incredibly beautiful just like the pictures! It is very spacious, open, has a gorgeous kitchen and stunning views of the ocean. It was spotlessly clean when we arrived. We came to North Caicos to relax and spend lots of time together as a family. We loved the quiet but this location is definitely not for every family with kids 10-16 years old. There isn't really much to do but for our family it was perfect because it was exactly what we needed and expected. Our kids loved it!!
There were 2 families renting the villa beside us but lucky for us they were hardly ever on the beach. For our entire week we only saw the local fisher man and maybe 2 other people. Perfect for us!
We spent every day walking on the beach, snorkelling (mostly in front of the villa), reading, running (some of us!) and playing some games. We did walk a few times to 3 Mary Cays but it was rough the one day we tried to snorkel there. My husband and 2 boys had more fun snorkelling in front of the villa where they saw lion fish, coral, starfish, a stingray and many other smaller fish.
We only rented a car one day and spent the day exploring North Caicos and also Middle Caicos. Mudjin Harbour was very beautiful and really needs to be seen to be appreciated. We ate lunch at Danny's which was good and we were glad that we did. Also ate at Silver Palms Restaurant and we would highly recommend it. Delicious! Make sure you try the lime pound cake with lime glaze!
I have nothing negative to say about this villa, our holiday was perfect. You will not be disappointed if you go and I am sure you will come away with many wonderful memories.
Thank you so much to Dan, the owner, for sharing this incredible vacation spot. We would love to return!!!

Amazing piece of paradise!

  • 5 of 5
As others have said in their reviews, Villa Cecilia is every bit as wonderful as it looks in the photos, if not better. After a particularly brutal winter back home in Ottawa, Canada, our one-week visit to North Caicos was the ideal getaway. The beach could not have been more perfect. Because it's in a sheltered cove, the water is calm and relatively shallow, making it perfect for snorkeling and swimming. The powder soft, white sand beach stretched as far as we could see, and we pretty much had it all to ourselves for the entire week. We loved the covered cabana (which you can't see in the photos) for sitting with a drink and a good book, enjoying the breeze and incredible view.

We had Chrishelle stock the groceries for us, and I'm not sure how you could do it any other way. The ferry is like a crowded school bus, and you can imagine what it would be like transporting a week's worth of groceries and your luggage on a packed school bus. We had to buy some groceries ourselves because our youngest daughter has severe food allergies and we needed to read ingredients on certain products. All told, we were a little surprised that the groceries for the 5 of us came to $800US for the week and felt terrible when we actually came up $20 short with Chrischelle! So, FYI, you can get US cash at the ATM on North Caicos either using a bank card or cash advance on a credit card.

We drove to Middle Caicos and took a few pictures of Mudjin Harbour and also visited the Conch Bar caves. The caves were awesome - we definitely recommend checking them out!

One thing we were curious about was whether there are jellyfish at this beach, and I can't guarantee it would be the same for everyone, but we did not see any sign whatsoever of any nasty creatures at all while we were there. In fact, we saw very little marine life period, just a few fish, one teeny tiny hermit crab, and a starfish that washed up on the beach. My husband saw a couple of lobsters when he swam out a bit deeper, and also an occupied conch shell at Three Mary's Cays (which was worth the hour walk to by the way).

One last thing I wanted to mention, although WE certainly did not travel there to use the Internet, there is Wi-Fi, but the most we could do all week was occasionally check e-mail. I mention this just in case you're traveling with teenagers obsessed with the Internet to set their expectations appropriately.;)

Thanks so much for having us at your incredible property!

Missing Villa Cecilia in 2015

  • 5 of 5
We have been regulars to Villa Cecilia for the past 4 years and are unable to return this spring. We will miss EVERYTHING about the Villa, starting with the privacy of the BEAUTIFUL beach, clean house with an awesome pool to refresh in, great caretakers and owners. It's the perfect place to unwind and have alot of fun.....at your own pace! We look forward to returning to this little paradise! I have a picture of the bridge with the beach in the back ground as a screen saver on my phone....it's better than any screen saver you can download!

Fabulous, Quiet and Secluded

  • 5 of 5
Our family wanted a beach get away to celebrate our son graduating from high school. After viewing all of the options online, we ALWAYS came back to Villa Cecilia. We wanted a house that would accommodate a family of 4, privacy, quiet beach and pool, and stunning views….We got EVERYTHING we wanted! I am a bit picky and wanted a well appointed house, Villa Cecilia has everything you need! The house did not disappoint! We loved that the house was supplied with snorkel gear, pool noodles, sand toys and rafts! The views from the house and the beach were amazing! We spent all of our days on the beach walking miles of clean sand, looking for shells, starfish and crabs. When we weren't swimming we were reading and we never had to fight for a chair like at the resorts! If we wanted to enjoy the beach but get out of the sun, we had a brand new thatched roof cabana. The pool and spa were really nice for the evening. We only ventured out once to Middle Caicos to see Mudjin Harbor, no one wanted to leave the property! We have been to other Caribbean destinations and nothing compares to this trip, we will be going back in the future! (The pictures on the site are accurate but do not do it justice, even better in person)!
