Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in North Caicos - DATAI. Your BEACHFRONT VILLA

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

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.


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'.

About Jean-Louis RENAUD

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.

Jean-Louis RENAUD purchased this villa in 1998

Why Jean-Louis RENAUD chose North Caicos

If you book our DATAI for your next vacation you can count on us. Martine and I are living a few villas away, on the same street. Anything you need,,, any help to find your way around... you just give us a call ... If you want to check in without planning your grocery or wine shopping...we can do that for you and save you more relaxation ... No mood for cooking ,,, I will be looking for a cook for you ... So don't waste your chance to discover what 'Island Life Style' means.

We are looking forward to welcome you at DATAI on North Caicos.


What makes this villa unique

Healthy, Peaceful , Relaxing, Energetic, Beautiful Genuine island environment...

A stay at Datai is a real brain booster...

Then you will be ready to go back to ''so called '' civilization ... but as soon as being waiting for your flight in the boarding room you will be already missing our peaceful island ... and will be thinking of your next visit! Don't worry...We will be there for you.

Guestbook comments from the manager

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!!!

AMAZING! Private & Serene Villa & Beach

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I stayed at Datai Villa over the first two weeks of May 2015. It was true to the photos and the descriptions --- actually more amazing in-person! This property is truly the best on Whitby beach in terms of how how well set-up it is for living every moment outside --- the attached deck by the house, the detached covered deck by the beach, the hammock under the palms, and the boardwalk directly to the water. The entire villa met our every expectation, and hosts, Jean-Louis & Martine were very helpful & friendly, yet respectful of our desire for privacy.

Walking to the Silver Palm for dinner, prepared with tremendous care by Karen, was like having a private chef (get the lamb!). Miss Bs for lunch was a treat as well (get the curried grouper!). We rented a car for the entire second week, which offered some adventure (we drove the length of the island and over to Middle) after a solid week of solitude. We plan to return to Datai for a longer stay next time!

Spring Break stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our three children stayed at Datai Villa for one week and had a wonderful experience. Jean-Louis was a wonderful host and the house was immaculate. The location is simply stunning and right on the beach with an amazing view. We decided not to rent a car and spend the entire week at the house and didn't regret our decision. We walked the beach, read, snorkled, swam, played ping pong and just relaxed.

We did not stop in Provo for groceries due to a two hour flight delay but were able to find enough provisions at the two local grocery stores to make meals for the week. Walking the beach on the way to the grocery store is easy and we did this a couple of times during the week. Jean-Luis was even kind enough to drive us one day to the grocery store and liquor store.

The only regrets we had were leaving this wonderful home and that it was very windy the week we were there so we did not take the kayaks out. We would definately recommend staying at Datai and look forward to returning again someday.

This was our best rental experience ever!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has rented quite a few times for vacations, both in the US and in the Caribbean. Our overall experience with Datai Villa was the best we've experienced yet (and we've had very good experiences in the past).

Jean-Louis has thought through all of the details necessary to have a wonderful stress-free vacation. He was very helpful with all aspects regarding food, transportation, excursions, etc. He received us at the house to walk through all of its amenities to make sure we were able to get the most out of our rental. The house and property are amazing - everything well designed and comfortable, very tastefully appointed. The beach was amazing - we sunbathed, shelled, snorkeled, kayaked and walked right from our property.

We absolutely, thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! Jean-Louis is a wonderful host and a joy to talk to if you have the time. We hope to return for another stay and would recommend Datai Villa unconditionally.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately, dear guest, your name does appears to autograph these wonderful reviews. Thanks anyway for all of these warm comments and compliments. By selecting our villa through so many other you spontaneously trust us so how could we disappoint you. Hospitality same as smiling has to come naturally . If you are not sincere people feel it immediately. Since more that eleven years now we are trying to pamper our new friends as much as we can so when they go back home (sniffff!) they already have in mind to come back for another stay at Datai. Thanks to the great reviews you posted, I want to thank on more time all the wonderful people we met over these years people like you who became our far away friends. All the very best to all of you. Jean-Louis and Martine

great place to de-stress and to get rejuvenated

  • 5 of 5

A great house, hosts and a very quiet beach spot. The place is perfect for a couple or a small group of friends. It's right on the beach. You fall asleep and wake up with relaxing sounds of waves. Jean-Louis was prompt in responding and easy to communicate with. He helped us with arranging transportation, getting some food and made us a great pizza the night we arrived. You can relax or be active, weather permitting. We had strong winds the week we were there so it was not ideal for kayaking but that also meant there were no mosquitoes or sand bugs at all. If you plan on cooking, it's worth stopping for food shopping on Provo before boarding the ferry. We hope to be back again.

Owner's Response: Hello Dear Anonymous!!! Of course I would have prefer to have at least a first name instead of having to guess through the many friends staying at Datai. Anyway... so thanks so much Anony for this great review. It's our pleasure to share our little paradise with friends like you who appreciate all these little things that make the difference. In French we say..." le petit rien qui change tout"... (ask Google to translate for you) We will be waiting for your next visit... till then, please recommend DATAI to your friends! Cordially... Jean-Louis & Martine

Datai villa is paradise on unspoiled North Caicos.

  • 5 of 5

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!
