Bedrooms 3
Space 2,900 sq ft
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 5 - 7 nights


About the property

3 BR+ 3 in-suite Bath, opening on our central large pool

"CASINA" is a peaceful "country-side" property just a (real) minute away from the endless stretch of beach of Whitby Haven . This will be your HOME as soon as arriving . 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 line!

In Italian CASINA means HOUSE... but HOME as well. This will be your feeling as soon as arriving to the villa.

"La CASINA" is offering all you can expect to spend the most peaceful and enjoyable vacation you had ever fantasized ... PEACE, PRIVACY, CALM...

The perfect blend of country-side peace and beach excitement without some of the little inconvenience of the beach front.

The Living Room as well as the three bedrooms are directly opening of our 27'x27' swimming pool. The first half of the pool is shallow enough (1 1/2 ft) to offer a real play ground to young children ... or a relaxing area for "non-swimmers" where to delight themselves with their "daily" beer or Rum Punch ... the second half (5 1/2 ft) will satisfy those looking for their daily workout... By the way a set of dumbbells is there for you... I you are not all day long in water... lounge chairs will welcome you around the pool... Time for lunch or dinner... the dinning set and grill will the start for unforgettable parties with family of friends. Then... a last dip under the stars with a cool breeze brushing the water.

Private tropical oasis with POOL steps from beach

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough great things about Villa Casina. The house is wonderfully designed in its simplicity, beauty and convenience. The layout was ideal for our travelling party of two families (three adults, four kids), with two bedrooms (one king, one queen) in the main house, and two other bedrooms (each with a queen) in a separate pod overlooking the pool. The main living area is open concept. We had plenty of space and the pool, gardens and grounds are meticulously maintained. The pool is an extremely rare feature for beach houses on North. I know of only one other property to rent on the entire island that has a pool and it is way more expensive than this one. The house has every amenity you will need for a beach vacation, from beach chairs, to blenders, to high speed internet (Netflix movie watching followed by a night dip in the pool under the stars was our evening ritual) and a dishwasher. There is an outdoor shower to hose off after the beach. The right of way to the beach starts about thirty feet up the road - a very short walk. As for its location on North Caicos, imagine a tropical island with endless empty white sand beaches with lush amazing tropical blue water. No throngs of tourists here. But don't expect cool shops, trendy eateries and swim up bars either. A vacation on North is the opposite of a resort vacation. As much as we loved being on the beach for hours at a time, we also enjoyed the pool, particularly in the afternoon heat. This was our third vacation on North Caicos having stayed at the owners' other property (Datai) on two previous occasions. We have no trouble getting what we needed from the three grocery stores (think: convenience store size) on the island and we bring some groceries from home (particularly pre-cooked meals which we brought frozen so as to have a few hassle-free dinners on hand). There are enough restaurants on North to make for a very enjoyable lunch or dinner out. We highly recommend a day trip out to Mudjin Harbour on Middle Caicos. The very kind owners, Jean-Louis and Martine take extremely good care of their properties and they also care about their guests and are quick to respond to and resolve any issues that may arise. We did not get to see them this visit since La Casina has been their full-time residence for over a decade and they only started renting it recently as they are looking to sell both properties. Régine, the property manager, was also helpful and responsive. We will come again!

Center point at Villa CASINA... our POOL!

27'x27' ... a real pool for swimmers(half of the pool is 5 1/2ft deep) and a perfect water play ground for kids( the other half goes up to 1 1/2 ft) These two sections are linked by a gentle sloop. No stress... but CHECK ON YOUR CHILDREN !
