About Dan & Joetta Silva, Owners of Villa Cecilia

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 & Joetta Silva, Owners of Villa Cecilia purchased this villa in 2009

Why Dan & Joetta Silva, Owners of Villa Cecilia chose Whitby

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.

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."

Ultimate Relaxing and Quiet Vacation Location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed twice at this property. It is our escape from civilization and the busy life.

After the hurricane of 2017, we were worried that there would be damage to the beaches or the home. Neither were the case and both were in top shape. This property is far off the beaten track. After flying into Provo, you need to get to the ferry for a 25 minute ride to N. Caicos. Chriscelle can arrange a rental car to meet you at the ferry. A short 10 minute drive gets you to the property. The last 1.5 miles is a washed out formerly paved road. Just when you are convinced that you're going the wrong way, the road becomes paved and the home is a short drive further.

Have Chriscelle grocery shop for you and stock the home as there are few good restaurants. She charges a delivery fee but it is well worth it to walk into a well stocked kitchen.

The home is well appointed with WiFi, 3 bedrooms, a living and family room as well as a nice kitchen. Walk out the back of the house onto a pool deck with amazing views of the beach and water. When the sun comes up, the water literally glows with amazing variations of blue. There is a screened in porch for meals and a grill that works well. The Dish Network didn't work well during our stay and may soon be replaced. There are some DVD's or bring your own.

There are 3 houses together at the East end of a 2 mile+ stretch of beach. You will find the beach in a natural state which means that there will be some sea grass on the shore. During the 4 days that we stayed at the home and on the beach, there were 2 days when we saw no one and 2 days when we saw from 4 - 10 people. The beach is perfect for long walks, good talks and you can walk the 2 miles down to 3 Mary's Cay easily. Swimming in front of the house is very safe for young kids and adults. The water is shallow quite a ways out from shore and there are no big waves. Our first visit, we encountered sand fleas, but there were none on this visit. Have bug spray just in case you need it.

You can see the other 2 homes from the pool deck but during our stay, neither were rented. It was the same way when we stayed in 2016.

This island is perfect for a low key and fully relaxing time with your family. The home is perfect to allow someone to take a nap inside, someone else to be reading a book poolside and another family member to be on the beach. My wife and I are already dreaming of our next trip back to N. Caicos.

Nice home. Gorgeous beach!

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable home for my family of six. Incredible beach in a remote, peaceful location. Not easy to get to but worth it.

Keep in mind, flight needs to get into Provo by 2pm at the latest to catch water taxi to North Cacois.

Chrischelle does an excellent job with logistics. Don’t be afraid to ask questions.

Silver Palm is best and closest restaurant option. We ate in a lot. Highly recommend bringing in your own food.

If the winds calm, no-see-um gnats can be ferocious. Bring bug spray.

As always, Villa Cecelia exceeds all our vacation expectations !

  • 5 of 5

Villa Cecilia, along with the GREAT people that own it, and the staff who is always there to help in anyway they can, is a first class vacation choice! We went fishing on a charter this year with Captain Bid D I am card mackerel and barracuda. This was a very fun time! The beach at Villa Cecelia is the best We have ever experienced and the Islanders the friendliest! We hope to go again in 2018.

Amazing view with the house to go with it. Love it!!!!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a place to relax and enjoy the ocean. This place will not disappoint you.

We had an amazing vacation in North Caicos at the Villa Cecilia. The house was perfect for 6 people ( 2 adults and 4 kids) and what a gorgeous house, felt like a Mansion. Our kids loved the pool, easy access to the house and most important the ocean. Just a few yards away from the house and your on this amazing paradise picture perfect beach as my wife would put it. She walked everyday for miles of pure white sand and ocean view to revive your soul. The best part was, nobody around on the beach as we had so much privacy it felt like " Case Away" the movie. Also, the manager was amazing, made our stay that much better and problems free. Thanks Chrischelle for all your help. Hope you give it a try...

We loved it so much we stayed 2 extra days

  • 5 of 5

Breathtaking views, amazing seclusion, the perfect place to get away. There are only 2 houses, both to the left, in either direction. They were vacant during our trip and we couldn't actually find them listed on any rental site. We decided that even if they had been rented it was still so much more private than you could find anywhere else as there are long, long stretches of beach with no one in sight. We were originally set up to stay 8 nights and fell so hard for this amazing house and location we added a couple of extra days. We are already planning our next trip and wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else.

The master bed was very comfortable and we felt the essential items for bath and kitchen were more than adequate. Do you need to get more toilet paper and paper towels if you're staying awhile? Sure, but you're not staying in a hotel for a reason, if you want endless toilet paper then don't stay in a rental house. Were there some minor maintenance issues and did a crazy storm on the last night knock out the power and water? Yes, but the tradeoff is having a nearly private beach and the kind of existential zen experience you almost can't find anymore. You are on an island, virtually in the middle of nowhere. Nothing's going to be perfect, except the view and hopefully the company as given the seclusion you better really like who you come with.

Absolutely have Chrischelle shop for groceries, they have pretty much anything you can think of at the IGA on the mainland. You can put in an order at the Wine Cellar for wine/beer/liquor and then pay over the phone and have Chrischelle pick that up as well. Even with just 2 of us, I can't imagine having to lug 10 days worth of groceries and libations across on the ferry. I also recommend getting a car, you'll be happy to have that 20-year-old Nissan to get back and forth from the ferry and to the few restaurants and convenience stores, or to explore if you somehow get tired of gazing upon the most beautiful white sand beach and turquoise water. As many other people said, cash is king. Also, Miss B will come and cook for you at the house, a really nice treat. Bring bug spray, when the wind dies down the sand fleas can be brutal. Also, bring some laundry detergent pods for the washer.

What a beautiful villa and beach!

  • 5 of 5

We vacationed at Villa Cecilia from oct 22-29, 2016 and had a wonderful week! The weather was awesome! Our private beach was breathtaking!! The villa was all that was promised! North Caicos is very isolated with very limited groceries n restaurants. We had Chrischelle, the property manager, prestock the villa with groceries and it was well worth it!!

If you are looking for a vacation of total peace and quiet villa Cecilia is for you! Other than the pool guy, Chrischelle and a maintenance guy we saw NO ONE all week!! (Other than when we ventured out in our rental car and even then it was only a few locals.) A whole week of total relaxation!!

We were on the island during "off season". So none of the local (only 3) restaurants were open. Miss Bee opened one night for us - Chrischelle arranged this for us. We rented a car for the week n drove to middle Caicos and ate at the Mudjin Bar n Grill for lunch. It was great with beautiful views of the ocean.

The locals were very welcoming and friendly. We felt very safe. I can't say enough about the villa private pool and the BEACH!! Breathtaking and so peaceful!! We can't wait to go back!!

Recommendations:1) Definitely have Chrischelle prestock your kitchen with groceries. Party of 6 we spent $1100 - which included her $150 fee. Meals, snacks n drinks. Great deal! Groceries on north Caicos are very limited n very pricey. she buys from the main island.

2) Rent a car for your stay $550/wk for a van (taxis $25 pp each way - very expensive) Chrischelle met us a the ferry with rental.

3) Relax and enjoy the privacy and awesome sunsets!!
