We spent 5 nights at this great property. It was a last minute trip to North Caicos and we enjoyed the property and both North and Middle Caicos. The house is very comfortable and well decorated - true to the pictures. Kids enjoyed (10/12) swimming in the pool.
Regine was wonderful, she provided us assistance with the last minute reservations. She helped with logistics in getting to the island, and getting off the island (Covid test, Boat transfer, Taxi, etc). It was all quite easy with her help.
Beach behind the home was a bit rocky when we were there but not a big deal since a quick 5 minute walk down the beach was all sand.
Barracuda Beach Bar was just a short half mile away and we enjoyed the food and rum drinks...so much that we went back 3 times.
Don't miss a trip to Middle Caicos to explore.
Great home on a great island.

First time to North Caicos and we hope we’ll have the good fortune to return. Property is incredible…clean, comfortable, spacious, private. Beach is right at back door. We snorkeled on seabeds & rocks nearby and enjoyed all the beaches within walking distance (Horsestable, Whitby, Hollywood). Our kids spent loads of time out on their own beach-combing sponges, coral & full conch shells. Plenty of desolate & quiet beaches to enjoy on North but the short drive to Middle Caicos is also worth it. Be sure to go there!
There are some logistics to figure out like grocery shopping in Provo and the ferry schedule but it really isn’t a hassle. WORTH IT!! North and Middle Caicos are undersold paradises.
It is also important to mention the gracious & responsive property host. She was so helpful & reliable.

Beautiful property and location. If you're looking for quiet and incredibly beautiful nature at your doorstep, this is it. Regine was fantastic to deal with, responsive to every inquiry and always at the ready to help. The only challenge is the no see-ums!

Our family of four including a 13-year-old and 11 year old made a fairly late decision to to travel this year. We feel so lucky that Vela Elemni was available. The pictures are exactly what you get. The openness of the windows and vaulted ceiling‘s made it feel big and luxurious. We landed in Providencialis and stayed overnight at a resort. The next day, Regine gave us the name of a taxi company that picked us up from our hotel, took us to the supermarket and then to the ferry. Regine met us at the ferry along with a rental car and helped get us and all our stuff to the Villa. The mosquitoes were a bit of a problem the first two days but then disappeared. Make sure you bring some bug spray! Don’t expect to swim directly from the villa, if you head to the left, you get a beautiful stretch of beach as well as the barracuda bar. It’s a fun walk along the rocks (about 5 minutes) and then along a beautiful stretch of sand. The next day we headed out to explore. Down at Bombarra Beach we met AC who runs A tiki hut or he made some amazing french fries and plantain chips for us. He says he will also come to your villa to cook. Wish we had known before we bought out the supermarket. If you’re prepared for a half a mile walk/swim out to pelican rock, you can snorkel around the beautiful rock and walk/swim back. Or, you can relax on this beautiful beach. We had lunch at MUdgin harbor. The food, view and service were so amazing that we went back there again two days later. Best piece of fish I’ve had in a long time! When we did, we explored the beach in the caves. Make sure you’re wearing sneakers if you have any issues with your knees or ankles. 3 Mary Cays was beautiful. It was raining the day we went, the roads and puddles were a little scary. We wish we had another nice day there to explore. If you want to snorkel or go for a boat ride, Dee was amazing. He met us, and despite some big waves, found us a beautiful snorkel spot, and took us to walk on some surrounding islands. North Caicos is not a resort. If you’re looking for something different, a relaxing , absolutely beautiful way to spend time with your family, a way to really escape, this won’t disappoint. We are already planning when we can go back! Thanks Regine. Thanks North Caicos

This was our third trip to the North, and 7th trip to Turks. We love it, always.
The property is awesome. Gorgeous ocean right out your back door, gorgeous night sky with ALL the stars. We cooked a ton, only venturing out to My Dees for their great Friday night BBQ and the occasional drink at Barracuda on the way back from a beach walk. Did a big shop on Provo before heading over, then filled in the gaps at the local stores. The kitchen/grill had everything we needed.
The pool was amazing, especially since we were there during August and during the remnants of a storm, when they get TONS of seaweed. Like...tons. But with the pool, no worries! Seaweed cleared out after a few days and ocean swimming was awesome too (even spotted turtles and rays!).
Regine is a gem! So friendly, welcoming, and helpful. When we had any needs or questions regarding the property, she was very quick to respond.
Striking up conversation with the amazingly kind groundskeeping staff also, we even tracked down some fresh lobster to grill one night.
Hot tip: be friendly! The folks on the North are some of the kindest, most generous people around, with great advice and stories to tell. If you want to truly escape the madness, this is your spot.

If I would have built and decorate and buy all the necessary household things for myself, I would have done and purchase all that was there. in other words, everything was just perfect. It was amazingly comfortable, clean, nice and well located.

This vacation was amazing. It was very remote. We had stayed on Provo a few times, and tried out North Caicos. It was a different experience because it is a lot “slower” on North Caicos. A lot less restaurants. We basically had our own private beach (only saw people walking by a few times). Regine was very responsive and helpful. She gave us a very helpful email upon booking and was very responsive while we were there to answer any questions.

We stayed for 4 nights in February & wished we could have stayed another week. Regine was awesome to work with and really takes care of everything for you during check in. The water is incredible just off the pool and the beaches are really secluded. There are a few large rocks on some parts of the beaches, but you can definitely find all sand areas to swim. North is not commercialized at all so make sure you do some planning in advance if you want to go out to eat. There is a small grocery store about a mile from the home. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice quiet getaway. Thanks Todd

Villa Elemni is a beautiful property that is quiet and remote with its own pool and beach. In fact, a short walk away and it opens up to vast beach with sand and turquoise water. The local restaurants are very welcoming and offer a great alternative to the more touristy locations on Provo. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking, and while local convenience stores provide some amenities it is best to do some grocery shopping in Provo before boarding the ferry. Regine was incredibly helpful during the booking and planning process and never more than a phone call away. Her suggestions led us to some great North Caicos residents for snorkeling, fishing and jet ski rentals. Beware the no-see-ums! We would return!
