You will see that Datai Villa is your best choice in beach vacation rentals.
DATAI meaning ”the Path toward Light” in ancient Malay,
Caribbean Villa: This beach vacation rentals consist of two separate buildings which open onto a private garden patio of the Caribbean villa. The main building contains a bright, spacious and nicely furnished living room and dining area which opens onto a huge deck equipped with a dining table and lounge chairs. Your morning breakfast on the patio will become a memorable moment as you start your day in “heaven”.
Beach Vacations: Every morning the ocean, palm trees and bright colors will be your first vision when you open your eyes while relaxing in the king size bed of the master bedroom. You will be enjoying the same scenery when bathing in the en suite master bath.
The second building houses two large bedrooms which open onto a spacious, private deck. Each bedroom has an en suite bath and is furnished with both a queen-size and single beds.
Ocean Views: You will enjoy cooking as surrounding nature is visible from anywhere in the kitchen! Major appliances, kitchenware and linens are at your disposal. A laundry room is conveniently located next to the kitchen.

The island fishermen can supply you with the “catch of the day” and amazing lobsters (when in season). If you prefer to dine out, there are three hotels with restaurant and bars within walking distance from this Caribbean villa.
Can you imagine a better feeling than “Farniente” on lounge chairs in the cool breezy shade of our large gazebo overlooking the beach and transparent water. For vacation rentals in the Turks and Caicos Islands or vacation rentals in the Caribbean, this Caribbean villa is the DATAI to Heaven!

Datai Villa is regularly checked and sprayed for various small creatures that make the island their home. Occasionally, however, you may encounter some of these critters, best efforts not withstanding. Do not be alarmed, as they are harmless; and indeed, lizards help keep the bug population under control. Please remember to keep the screen doors closed and you’ll probably never have one visiting you. Occasionally after a heavy rain or if the trade winds die down (not very often), you’ll get a few mosquitoes or sand flies.Make sure you bring some insect repellent.
Sun: The Caribbean sun can be pretty treacherous; please be sure to use some sun block. It is available at the local store. We want to make sure your visit will be a relaxing and comfortable one.
Baby crib: A crib is available. Also, for those couples who need some get-away time, baby-sitting services can be arranged in advance.
Checking Out: You will arrange your pick-up with MAC, who will handle your flight booking with Global Airways from North Caicos to Providenciales. If you are flying on American Airlines out of Providenciales, they accept check-ins as early as 9:00 a.m. We suggest leaving the villa at 8:00 a.m. and once to Providenciales Airport, check-in and obtain your boarding pass.

You may prefer to enjoy our beautiful beach until the very last minute… so arrange a booking on the 1:00 PM flight and relax, you will have enough time to reach Providenciales Airport. Because you are flying out on an international flight, American Airlines recommends being at the airport approximately 1 1/2 hours before your departure time.
