My wife are I are both real estate professionals. We own and manage rental properties in the United States and the Turks and Caicos Islands. We discovered the Turks and Caicos Islands in the year 2000 and have returned every year since. We have also purchased a number of investments in the Islands including the Villa Cecilia.

Dan Silva purchased this villa in 2009

After staying in Providenciales for several years in a row we decided to explore the outer Islands. As a result of our trips, we discovered the Island of North Caicos. It's beaches rivaled those of Grace Bay and the people were extremely friendly. North Caicos is located between the world renowned Island of Parrot Cay and Middle Caicos. So we felt it was a safe investment. We were attracted to its pristine and private sandy beaches. We decided to purchase an oceanfront lot in Pumpkin Bluff and build our 'dream Home': the Villa Cecilia. The Villa is named after my mother.

An incredible family vacation!!!

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 02-Apr-2012
  • Date of Stay: Mar 2012
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!!!
Owner's Response: Hi Cathy: My wife and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you again for choosing the Villa Cecilia for your Caribbean vacation destination this year. More importantly, we cannot thank you enough for taking the time to write such a glowing review. It is truly gratifying to know that we have helped provide you and your family with an enjoyable and memorable vacation experience. Thank you again for the positive review and we hope to see you again in the future.

If you are looking for a wonderful relaxing vacation you can look no further. The Villa was excellent and the views outstanding. It was the best way to decompress and enjoy the water and sun and friends. The beach is one of the best we have experienced and it was rare to ever see anyone on it other than our group. I can't wait to come back!!! We made a lot of local friends which made our trip even more enjoyable.

Paradise Found!

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 10-Apr-2014
  • Date of Stay: Mar 2014
We spent a phenomenal two weeks at Villa Cecilia! We travelled with two school age children, and Grammie. The house was beautiful yet comfortable with a very good layout and flow which afforded spaces for both family time as well as quiet moments. The photos do not do it justice! We found there to be plenty of room for five people in the house and around the pool. The outdoor furniture was of high quality and well maintained. It was great having furniture both by the pool and on the beach, although a few more loungers would be nice.
The beach was beyond belief! It's by far the most beautiful beach we have been to in the Caribbean. Most days, we had it entirely to ourselves. The water was shallow, calm, and warm enough for the children to swim in without worries, yet still enjoyable for the adults. We saw very little sea life so we did not worry about the more dangerous ocean creatures, like sharks.
The Islands of North and Middle Caicos are fairly remote, although after some days, we developed a sense of familiarity. A car is a must. We found the Islands to be very safe and not once, did we feel at all unsafe. For those seeking many outings, these Islands may be a bit quiet. For us, they were perfect and we even cancelled our second planned outing to Middle Caicos because we were enjoying ourselves so much at the house.
Chrishelle, the property manager, is lovely. We had her stock the fridge prior to our arrival which was very helpful, especially for a two week vacation. She chose familiar brands so we didn't have any surprises. We had concerns that we would be lacking in meals as we are foodies. This fear was quickly alleviated once we discovered some of the local restaurants. Next time, we would plan less dinners at the house and go to the restaurants for our evening meals. Word of advice: most of the restaurants require you to make your reservation (and place your order) in advance, during the day. You cannot just show up at the Island restaurants in the evening.
Chrischelle also arranged a half day fishing trip for us. We had a terrific time, and our daughters are still talking of it.
We felt truly relaxed at the end of our two weeks, and were sad to be returning to the metropolis of Provo for a few more days before flying home.
We would absolutely recommend Villa Cecilia to anyone looking for relaxation and privacy. Thank you Dan and Joetta for sharing your paradise with us. We are already looking forward to our next vacation at Villa Cecilia.

Everything We Were Hoping For

  • Review Submitted: 02-Jan-2014
  • Date of Stay: Nov 2013
"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."

Loved Villa Cecilia

  • Review Submitted: 11-Jul-2013

This was our first stay on North Caicos as we normally vacation on Provo. We are so glad we did! We are a busy family and prefer peace and quiet when we unwind. We certainly found that at Villa Cecilia. Most of our days were spend swimming and snorkeling. During our adventures we saw rays, great tropical fish, puffer fish, star fish, conchs, and even a sea turtle! During low tide there is a group of rocks in the cove directly out from the villa where baby tropical fish hide. This is an excellent place for younger kids to enjoy snorkeling and the water is about knee deep.
Every evening we were visited by a Yellow Crowned Night Heron who would land on the back patio and drink from the swimming pool! Amazing! (We named him Monty). Each morning we saw flocks of flamingos flying over on their way to the flamingo pond. It was all quite magical!
We also took a day trip to Middle Caicos and Mudjin Harbor which was a great adventure and also quite beautiful.
We packed non-perishable foods on our checked luggage and had Chrischelle buy our perishable goods before our arrival. KJ's Grocery on North has practically everything you could want, but is more expensive than the Provo grocery store. Chrischelle also arranged our rental car- it was all seamless!
I have not even talked about Villa Cecilia which is first rate accommodations! A biggie for me is a comfortable bed and these are excellent! The showers are great also!
The villa is situated on a cove with two other villas and that is within an area of beach stretching about 3 miles. There were other families there renting one and the owner was visiting another. We usually walked the beach by ourselves searching for coral, conch shells and sea glass.
If you have reservations about staying on North Caicos, let me convince you to do it! It was a little outside our comfort zone, but once we experienced it, we will never stay on Provo again. The seclusion and serenity and wildlife was ideal for our family! Every new day brought a new adventure!
