“Unforgettable memories made here!”

Reviewed 5 Jul 2016

Treated my family and myself to an 11 day Middle Caicos getaway that I will never forget! The house is perfect, nice and cool A/C, satellite internet which I used a trick to boost the speed...hope you don't mind Murray, and all the comforts of home you could want or need in what is absolutely the most isolated, off the grid location I've ever traveled to. After an exhausting day of travel with enough food to feed an army, Loti and her brother picked us up in her vehicle and the Land Rover for a 45 minute drive from the ferry to the house location. I must have been mapping the island on Google Earth for well over a year and pulling up every piece of history written about the island before hand, but pictures or words do this island little justice describing it's untouched beauty! The air is sweet and clean, the gardens from the house to the beach are beautiful, and besides a few day trippers getting lost trying to find Bambarra Park, we hardly saw a single soul. The Cabana is the ultimate relaxation zone and the beach which seems you're the first people in history to walk on is breathtaking! The first night, the power shut off at about 3 in the morning on the entire island until about noon the next day. Needless to say, the house was a hot box and instead of trying to sleep in my own sweat, my father in law, wife and I sprayed ourselves down with Mosquito spray, which you absolutely must have, and headed down to the beach and slept under the starry night sky. It almost seemed fake, I have never seen so many stars and even the milky way arm interrupted only by hundreds of shooting stars. In hindsight, very glad the power shut off when it did. This power issue happened 4 or 5 more times throughout our stay but never more than 1 or two hours after the first night. The next day, me and my son swam out to Pelican cay, *not an easy swim* and were searching for reefs that I had seen from satellite imagery only to be greeted by a 6' Barracuda. It was acting extremely aggressive and followed me and my son back less than 5' away on the entire 30 minute swim back to shore. Terrifying to say the least since getting to a hospital from this remote of a location would be quite an ordeal. Besides that one experience which had my son pretty shaken up and myself as well, we went on to explore as much of the island as possible. Mudjin harbour is an amazing place to do some snorkeling and see one of the prettiest places on Earth and the Conch bar caves are no longer accessible for a self guided tour since some graffiti artists decided to ruin that experience for everyone. For any of the history buffs out there that plan on making the trek out to Armstrong Pond to see the Lucayan ball field or the architectural sites, think again! There are no roads that come anywhere close, and the brush is 6 to 10 feet high and extremely thick! I did manage to make it out to the Eastern coasts of the island which is lined with rocky shores and beautiful cliffs and if you truly want to experience being places no other human has been, in land, there are cave entrances not mentioned anywhere and the snorkeling blows away Mudjin off the coast past wild cow run. Some tips I would give to future renters here is the "no-see-ums" as I like to call them are tiny bugs that bite the crap out of you and will get you while you're sleeping. A local told us on our second to last day, putting baby oil on your skin before going to bed keeps them off of you since bug spray only seems to fuel their hunger to bite. It absolutely works, bring baby oil and Off bug spray does nothing for the mosquitoes. Any bug spray with eucalyptus in it does the trick. The bottom Sony DVD player is the only one that will read the burned DVD's on the shelf which I had to re-wire, and the AC on the Land Rover does not work, or the trunk latch, or the passenger window unless you hit the towing button while in park twice before trying. The bees that swarm near the hammocks during the day do not sting even when stepped on, they're just after this sweet fruit that grows on the pink flower trees in the garden. The island being so untouched by man is what drove me to want to vacation here and honestly I cannot wait to do it again! The house has everything perfect and you can tell a lot of thought went into it's setup, even the minuscule details. Murray, thank you so much for accommodating our delayed flight and moving the whole trip forward a day, you were a pleasure to deal with and absolutely loved the house, and cared for it like it was my own, which it really does feel like home even on the first day. Would absolutely recommend this place to anyone willing to get away from the socialite vacations and look forward to staying here again much sooner than later!

Response from the owner What a scare with the barracuda! They are a curious fish coming almost nose to nose so see what is going but rarely bite and probably only if you are inside a school of fish. Thanks for rewiring the old CD player. I am bring down a new one in August. Half to blame PPC for the power off-they must be doing some work on the grid. Generally very reliable. Hope to see you again and thanks for coming. Murray

“We are Belongers!”

Reviewed 19 Mar 2012

Hi Murray, We had the most fantastic time at your villa! We are not resort types... we like seclusion and well, we found it! We had the whole beach to ourselves most of the time. The water was so beautiful and warm. The sun shone the whole time. We snorkeled nearly every day. We saw more than 35 species of fish, countless corals, a bounty of other marine life, without ever spending a nickel on a tour! We walked out to Pelican Cay two different days and snorkeled around it. We saw several rays on the sandbar, including, after much debate, research and speculation, what we decided could only be a Manta ray!! It was nearly 6 feet wide, with no spots and it followed us along through the silt we were churning up. I told the kids that was the best day of my life so far. I told my husband that I hoped we hadn't ruined the kids by bringing them somewhere so fantastic while they were so young. He said it was the perfect experience for them. We met your friends Leonard and Cheryl and their friend Margot from Nunavut. Leonard took us to Mudjin harbour for the morning and we swam and snorkeled there with Margot and explored the Dragon Cay. They were so incredibly nice to us, it makes me think that you and Lynda must be pretty special people. Thank you so much for renting us your villa! It may be kind of corny to say, but the morning after we arrived, I said to my husband "I feel like I'm at home. I feel like I belong here." He said he did too. Much thanks and warm regards, Tonde

“Caribbean Paradise”

Reviewed 15 Mar 2011

We just wanted to let you know that our trip to your villa was amazing. It was paradise spending long lazy days on the beach, which goes on for miles. It seemed that we had it all to ourselves. The tiki hut was a perfect place to catch a breeze or take an afternoon nap. We spent endless hours in the ocean, it was so warm. We also enjoyed going out on the boat with Dolphus, he knew just where to catch fish and the kids really enjoyed the snorkeling. The villa was just right. The screened in porch which is where we held our running scrabble tournament and ate dinner some nights was perfect. The kitchen was well equipped and being able to pre-order our groceries prior to coming down, made the trip that much easier. We also enjoyed our dinner out at Danny's Cafe in Conch Bar, it was our date night. Spending time at Dragon Cay at Mujin Harbour was a highlight. It is a little piece of heaven on earth. The caves were just outside of Conch Bar are a must. Overall this vacation was one or our favorites and so we re-booked for this summer. We are getting married and we are looking forward to spending our honeymoon at your Caribbean paradise!
