Miles Of White Sand Beach at 3MC , Seclusion And All The Comforts You Could Want

Bedrooms 3
Space 4,000 sq ft
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 3 - 6 nights


About the property

4,000 Sq Ft, 3 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms, Freshwater Pool, 40 Ft Porch, Sun Deck

Three mary cays is the only house on a two mile white sand beach offering total privacy and seclusion. Though an informal beach house it has every comfort you will need. Each bedroom and the living room are separate buildings connected by an elliptical board walk. There is a 40ft wide open plan living room, kitchen and dining area adjoining a 40 ft screened porch. The three king size en-suite bedrooms are air conditioned but also have ceiling fans and screened porches. The living room opens onto a large deck with a freshwater pool and changing room. The buildings were all designed to be self cooling with curved roofs and jalousies front and back that open to allow the sea breeze to waft through. The kitchens and bathrooms were designed to the highest specifications. The furniture is all the iconic Richard Schultz 1966 range and all the mattresses and linens were sourced from the four seasons hotel, Miami.

Where is north caicos?: north caicos, is part of the turks and caicos islands, a british overseas territory. It is located south of the bahamas, north of the dominican republic and haiti and northeast of cuba. North caicos is 41 square miles and has a population of around 1,500. North caicos is 12 miles northeast of providenciales (provo) which has the international airport hub for turks and caicos islands, but there is an airport on north caicos which can handle small jets. There is a good ferry service between north caicos and provo, with 5 ferry sailings on weekdays and 3 on weekends, which makes north caicos easily accessible. There are also local flights from north caicos airport (8 miles from the villa) to provo. An suv / jeep type rental car is recommended and there are bicycle rentals available as well as taxis and guided tours.

Why Regine Forbes chose Whitby

We used to stay regularly at Parrot Cay, on the adjoining island to North and fell in love with the peace and beauty of these islands. We then rented houses on Provo, but found the unspoiled beauty of North more appealing. We had the house designed by the leading London based architect Seth Stein and it was short listed for an RIBA prize when it was completed in 2006. We wanted a house that would be a complete contrast to our home in the UK, but at the same time be very comfortable. Having lived in the tropics knew how important it would be to take advantage of the sea breeze to cool the house naturally, hence the walls of jalousie shutters on the seaward side and the curved roof to pull in the breeze. As there is no fresh water on North, we wanted to harvest rain water as efficiently as possible so Seth designed the giant rain water hoppers. We stay at the house for around three months a year and find it wonderfully relaxing and large enough to regularly have friends and children to stay.

What makes this villa unique

Three Mary Cays is the only Seth Stein designed house in the Turks & Caicos and one of the few in the world that is regularly rented to guests. There is no house quite like it with it's unique layout; each bedroom being a separate building all connected by boardwalks to the main living room and kitchen building. The boardwalks allow you to wander around examining the vast number of different native plants including of course the endangered Caicos orchids that grow wild all over the site. Without doubt though the thing everyone who has stayed here remembers best is the uninterrupted view of the blue Caribbean Sea and the sunset over the three islands after which the house is named.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My partner and I stayed here for a really wonderful week and we just didn't want to leave. The four poster beds as so comfortable and we really loved sleeping with the shutters open so we could hear the waves all night. Other than Joseph and Regine who look after the house we didn't see another person on the beach, which was just the peace and tranquility we'd been after. The wildlife is really and truly amazing. I just love the little black lizards on the boardwalks and a white sea eagle came by in the afternoons. Snorkeling is soooo tempting! There are millions of fish on the reef, but you need to book a boat to take you out. There is also great snorkeling around the three small islands down the beach that you can swim out to, but don't go past number two as there's a strong current. If you rent a car, best make it a jeep, as the road to the house is rough, but like us you probably won't want to leave the villa!

We found heaven - how do you share and keep it to ourselves?

  • 5 of 5

What a magical place - the pictures don't do the place justice. Private and completely unconnected! Only suggestions - need a couch or some big comfy chairs for reading during a rain storm and to watch tv (not that you will want to watch tv - but for that moment you do)

Bedroom was functional and very comfortable

Kitchen was well equipped and there was anything you needed or wanted- we wished we could have stayed much longer - but we will certainly be back.

Thank you for sharing this heaven on earth place!

Peaceful perfection

  • 5 of 5

I was fortunate enough to stay at Three Marys Cay with two friends for a week in September 2016. The property is even more stunning than I expected. The location on a is quite simply paradise. Regine and Joe made our stay comfortable and clean, all details were taken care of. Regine connected us with Captain Dedrick for a private charter boat excursion. I highly recommend this location if you want to escape the crowds and find your own private slice of paradise.

Amazing Location, Great Views, Total Privacy at an Architectural Vision!

  • 5 of 5

Three Mary Cays Villa is a unique compound. Property manager Regine Forbes was excellent, providing great communication before, during & after our stay. She met us at the dock in Sandy Point, carried some of our luggage to the car, showed us the way to the house, avoiding flooded roads, and generously led us to the small grocery in Whitby before closing time.

Caretaker Joseph was there as much or as little as we wanted. He was always very friendly & helpful.

The main living quarters contain the main floor kitchen (with sink, stove, oven, under-counter fridge, dishwasher & water cooler) and the living room, plus screened porch. It's really quite a space, which is never truly ever closed to the elements. The jalousie blinds can be closed on the south side (and we did have to do this during the storms, as water was coming in) but the screened porch is still windy. We ate on the porch every night. The prep kitchen on the lower level has a sink and 2 medium size refrigerators/freezers, which we filled easily. The up & down from the prep to the main level was sometimes awkward. And we could have used a few more pots and pans for our group of 7, but we managed.

On Regine's recommendation we rented a vehicle from Al, who couldn't have been nicer. When we plowed through some deep water on the road and the car died in our driveway, Al came and fixed it. When we got stuck backroading near Conch Cave, Al sent a van to pick us up. While probably frustrated, he treated us with professionalism and equanimity. Everyone we met was very friendly: Merrica at My Dees, the owner of Miss B's, and various others.

The beach outside the house is beautiful. We never saw a soul the whole 10 days (we did find footprints twice). We went swimming every day, noting the difference in the water at high and low tide. We snorkeled at the Three Marys, just up the beach, and walked along the rocks. We had a bonfire one night that was blissfully windy (no bugs!) and yet warm. Amazing cloud formations every day. We did have a power failure our last night, but that was fun. The provided cellphone came in very handy.

From the house it's a bit of a drive to anything. And the nearest roads are rough. We got groceries in Whitby or Bottle Creek. We explored Middle Caicos, where Mudjin Harbor is spectacular, but rough. Indian Cave was too buggy to enjoy at all. Conch Bar Cave is by guided tour only, which leaves much of it unseen. All the better for another trip to this magic spot!

Great trip!

  • 5 of 5

We took a family vacation over the New Year's holiday and had an amazing time. The trip was with my parents, my brother and his wife, and me and my wife. If you're looking for seclusion, relaxation and quality time, this place is great, but it's definitely not for everybody.

As you can probably tell from the website, this place is beautifully designed, very secluded and well-equipped. The villas are separated by over a mile on each side from the nearest neighbors and the white sand beach looks like it belongs on a postcard. There are all types of coffee makers and cooking equipment, as well as a grill, electric stoves, oven, toaster, blender, etc. As will most rental houses, all the knives were dull, but I'm not sure I've rented a house where that wasn't the case. Everything was clean and beautiful, and Regine and Joseph were very friendly and attentive.

But here are some reasons that North Caicos may not be for everybody:

- It's a 15-20min drive from the ferry down some very rocky, unpaved roads.

- There is not much in the way of stores and restaurants on the island so you need to be prepared to cook most of your meals.

- Although the area is known for some of the best snorkeling on the island, it's not that great for snorkeling, and the good areas are either very far offshore or in rough waters near rocks. We booked a charted trip, which was good.

- The sand flies and mosquitoes are pretty unbearable when there was not much wind and after rain. Nothing seemed to keep the sand flies from biting, and we were all covered in bites by the end. This is true for anywhere on North Caicos.

The bottom line: the quality of the villas and the service, and the beauty and seclusion were top notch. People just need to know what to expect when visiting North Caicos.

Robinson Crusoe deluxe

  • 5 of 5

The villa and setting were just extraordinary. All seasoned travellers in our party, we have never encountered anything so magical. The house is built to the highest standard, with great attention to detail. The separation of sleeping quarters is ideal, and the ability to sleep with open jalousies listening to the waves was wonderful. Most of all we appreciated the sense of privacy the property affords; the house is set in extensive grounds, and we had the whole beach to ourselves. We stayed for a week, and only ventured outside once, for a rather lacklustre dinner. Regine and Joseph did everything to make our stay comfortable. We would return in a heartbeat.

Luxury and seclusion

  • 5 of 5

When we started planing our vacation, TCI was not our first choice, until we saw this house: we made our minds right on the first picture, and didn't regret our decision for a second! The house design is fantastic, the honeymoon style rooms separate from the main house allows you to have privacy when you want, the silence and the constant breeze are very relaxing, and to have the beach completely to ourselves was the ultimate luxury. Regine was extremelly helpful from the beginning, and Joseph, the house care taker, was always there in the morning, smiling and helping with whatever we needed.

But, like someone told us, "there is no perfect paradise", so watch out for the mosquitos!
