About John Farren
Building on a remote Caribbean island began as a twinkle in the eye. You quickly learn how difficult it can be. It has become a great classroom with many 'forgiveness opportunities'. Being on the other end of the process, the experiences have brought wisdom, patience and the challenge to find good in situations while testing your will. The real friendships, great experiences and laughter are what will bring you back again & again for more. You realize how much we take for granted every day and what is really meaningful in life. Was it worth it - ABSOLUTELY!!! DREAMS DO COME TRUE JODO was not purchased second hand, JODO was built from scratch by John with much love, heart & a spirit that will never ever quit! JODO is ever evolving, and wants you to contribute....a tree, a shell, something that leaves a piece of your soul at JODO. It's all about the love.
John Farren purchased this Villa in 2000
Why John Farren chose Sandy Point
JODO...is a magical property that you can feel in your soul. It has taken more than 5 years to build & has not been easy, but the property deserves only the best! JODO is pure land & is difficult to describe in words, you will feel the positive energy in your veins. There is a 'story' behind almost every detail, if it were all in a book - you wouldn't believe it! It is an adventure that has to be experienced to be understood. Jodo will become a part of you. If you are ready for a unique and special experience to fill your heart with JOY....look to JODO. JODO is constantly giving back to the community.

JODO is a part of them, and of me..... we want it to be a part of you.

Best Vacation Ever
We only give 5 stars because we can’t give 10. Jodo is truly located in paradise! When our family planned for my daughter’s senior trip for graduation, we were hesitant thinking this could not live up to what we had seen in pictures, heard in reviews and the build up in our minds. It exceeded all expectations. The most perfect, relaxing vacation my family has ever taken.
House – beautiful. Location – John, you are lucky….the most perfect thing we have ever witnessed. John and Regine – accommodating, pleasant and present when or if you need them.
We had a great dinner at Mudjin Bar and Grill on Middle Caicos. The fish and chips and snapper were awesome! The Friday night bbq at My Dee’s is a must also!
Must sees: Mudjin Harbor, Three Mary Cays, Horsestable Beach, Pelican Cay and Bottle Creek.
It is hard to come back to reality when you leave, but we will be back to Jodo as soon as we can. I now know where and how to fish for bonefish as well.
Thanks again, John, for sharing your beautiful home with us, and thank you, Regine, for all your help!!! Hopefully, we will talk to you soon. 😊�
Remote relaxation on North Caicos
Our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 teenagers ages 13 and 16) just returned from a wonderful week at the Jodo guest house. Having been to Provo several times previously, we wanted a more remote experience, away from the development of Grace Bay. Boy did we find that experience on North Caicos! Sandy Point and. Jodo were a great fit for our family. First the pros: The beach and views from the Jodo are spectacular. We spent countless hours swimming and snorkeling offshore, walking the beach, and sitting at the thatch hut. During the whole week, we only saw two other people walk by one time! If you are looking for a beautiful, private beach, this is the spot for you. We saw beautiful fish, crabs, rays, conch, and many beautiful shells along the beach. I highly recommend renting a car. We enjoyed having access to many other sights on and around North and Middle Caicos. The flamingos in the nearby pond are stunning. Mudjin Harbor and Bambarra Beach on Middle Caicos were breathtaking. Regine was very helpful in assisting with necessary arrangements for taxi, ferry, and car rental before arrival. Overall, we had a wonderful experience. The reason I have not given 5 stars, however, is because there were a few disappointments when things that had been advertised, such as kayaks and the electric golf cart, were not available when we arrived as apparently these items have been damaged or lost by prior renters. This would have been helpful to know in advance as we were really looking forward to them. Otherwise, the accommodations were very good. The kitchen has the basic necessities and we made all of our meals onsite as most restaurants were closed due to it being off season. The sleeping arrangements were very comfortable. One. word of caution about the bugs. We were prepared, having read prior reviews, about the sand fleas/no-seeums; however, at times they were worse than we expected and I wished we had stronger bug repellent. This could have been due to our timing as the island had been having significant rain before we arrived. All in all, in spite of these few issues, we really enjoyed our stay and would come again. If you are looking for a remote and beautiful experience and want to get away from it all, I would recommend a stay at Jodo!
We’re so glad you had a great time on Jodo's 7 acres beachfront Villa estate for the price of a small hotel room in Provo! Yes, unfortunately previous guests have spoiled some of the extra bonuses I included. Now all kayaks, snorkeling equipment and other water sports are available for rental from outside vendors. Cars are also available for rental and we help with all the details. Hope you come back again and thank you for taking good care of Jodo.
The villa and beach were beautiful and the people of North Caicos were awesome.
I think we found paradise
We are so happy that we found this bit of paradise before the resorts and subdivisions move in. Perfect weather, privacy, location, wildlife, beach life, bike rides and accommodation. A much needed reminder to slow down and enjoy life each day. We were disappointed to arrive to no kayaks and the loungers need cushions, but every other aspect of Jodo surpassed our expectations. Our 11 days went by much too quickly and we hope to return. We highly recommend Jodo to anyone that wants top notch accommodations away from the hustle and bustle of the typical beach options. From the quick responses to our questions when we were booking until our return home- the Jodo team looked after us.
We're so glad you loved the paradise that is JODO and appreciated it all.
You are what JODO is all about, come back soon!
We had such a restful and restorative time at JODO. Everything you have read previously is true and more. It is so quiet there, especially at night, where you don't hear any sound except those of nature. No dogs barking, no cars honking or driving by, no people laughing and cavorting. Just stillness. It is wonderful. We stayed in the guest house which was perfectly comfortable and more than enough room for the two of us. It was great to have a bedroom with air conditioning if we needed it (only used it twice) and also have the option of sleeping upstairs with the gorgeous view to wake up to each morning. It is a huge plus that the main house is not rented when the guest house is in use, allowing for complete privacy. The stars at night are amazing and the crystal clear turquoise water is simply astounding. Having Regine available was quite helpful and the fact that a local phone is provided is terrific. Regine helped us arrange for our car through Turquoise Car rental, who were also great to work with. She also gave us a great tip on where to see Flamingos close up and we hit the jackpot! We saw whales off in the distance two mornings and although we got doused with a shower one morning, the rainbow we spotted afterward was beautiful. From JODO, we were able to visit so many wonderful locations. Three Mary's Cay, Whitby Beach, Horsestable Beach, Pumpkin Bluff , Mudjin Harbor, Bambarra Beach...all easy to get to from here - and you positively should go see them. Spectacular. As others have said, it would be a good idea to prepare for no-see-ums, as you might encounter them in various locations especially after a rainstorm. Although restaurant choices are more limited than Provo, we had two wonderful meals at Silver Palm Restaurant and enjoyed talking with Karen, the owner. We also enjoyed our meals at My Dees and Miss B's. I hope we can come back to JODO soon. We have been to Provo twice and spent a day on North Caicos last year, but our week this year at JODO has topped them all. Thanks for sharing this amazing home with us. We loved every minute of it!
Thank you very much for the wonderful review. We're excited you had a great time and hope you won't be a stranger and come back soon. The 2nd, 3rd, 4th times at Jodo are even better!
An Amazing Slice Of Paradise!
We spent an entire 2 weeks at the Jodo and loved every minute of it! The villa itself is beautiful and very spacious, AND the water front and beach of the property is truly magical! You literally have the entire beach to yourself. The water is just perfect! If you are looking to feel like you are on a secluded island this is the place for you. The Jodo has a great variety of stand up paddle boards, kayaks, and snorkel gear for use. It even has a little golf cart for you drive around if you don't feel like walking to get some cold drinks from the fridge in the sun. Pretty incredible!! Regine, the property manager was truly wonderful. She was always a phone call away from anything we needed and made sure our stay was comfortable.
North Caicos is a very peaceful place, much different from Provo which we really loved. You feel like you are truly experiencing the beauty of the island without the crazy amount of tourist crowds. There are also a few small grocery stores available and some cute local restaurants. We had an incredible time in North Caicos, and staying at the Jodo was a huge part of that. Thank you to John and Regine for allowing us to have this incredible experience of Turks & Caicos!! Much love!
Thank you both so very much for the wonderful review. Thank you with so much love and gratitude from all of us at Jodo for adding your beautiful energy to Jodo.
Come back soon.....John
Located on the CALM waters of Sandy Point North Caicos! This is the leeward side of the island = much calmer water for your kayaking & Paddleboarding fun! Sunsets that have no equal.
