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. We want to be honored stewards of this precious land. I wish you could meet every beautiful soul that works so hard behind the scenes to make jodo magical! Jodo is a part of them, and of me..... We want it to be a part of you.
What makes this Villa unique
When you step onto the 7 Private Gated Oceanfront Acres of Jodo, it will stir emotions deep within you. You will know you made the right choice. Situated on Sandy Point, it overlooks Parrot Cay and provides constant entertainment through nature. Unobstructed breathtaking sunsets all year round, Jodo cannot be matched. Time will cease to exist and you will truly live in the now. Jodo quietly whispers to your soul and will call you to return - will you listen? Are you ready for JODO?

Stunning, relaxing, heavenly...
Our stay at Jodo exceeded our expectations. The villa is grand and tastefully designed, with open space and a refreshing surf-vibe. The large family area is perfect for gatherings while the game room keeps nights fun and entertaining without the need for a t.v. or cell phone. Jodo is truly an escape from reality. For the first half of our week stay, we did not see a SINGLE individual on the beach. The peaceful isolation is straight out of a movie. White sand and crystal clear water stretch for miles in front of this estate, and the rafts and paddle boards make for days of fun. Be sure to snorkel around the coral reef right off the coast! Thank you, Jodo, for the vacation of a lifetime.
Thanks for the great review and the cool energy you added to Jodo!
MOST RELAXING TRIP EVER!!!
JODO was everything described with breath taking views!! And the staff is above a 5 star ranking. Regine met us at the ferry and helped us load our groceries and luggage and escorted us to the house to get us settled - she was our "go to" for information on any and everything - she is awesome. We had two families of 4 with our children ranging from 18-24 all enjoyed the time on the island!
Recommendation 1) make sure to bring bug spray or baby oil. The night time bugs can get pretty bad, especially the "no see-ums" but baby oil and/or deep woods off seem to help a lot.
2) Let Regine get your groceries for you, it will make your arrival easier. If you want to do your own - selections is better on Provo. There are 2 grocery stores on the island with good selection but deliveries are once a week and selection can run slim.
3) Book in advance if you want to dive. We waited till we were on the island to book and there were no openings. We will book in advance next time.
4) Have your coffee on the back porch in the rocking chairs every morning realizing you are as close to heaven as you can get on earth!
5) Your on Island Time - relax, slow down and know that the world turns different on North Caicos - you will sleep better and relax more at JODO - enjoy it!
6) Rent a vehicle and exploring the beautiful island and interacting with the residents, we found everyone to be friendly and willing to take time to visit
Thanks Marc! You guys are awesome, see you next year!
MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACE IN THE WORLD
This is as close to your own private island you can get and much lees expensive than renting a private island. We have stayed at JODO twice. Both times in the main house. We have already booked both houses for 2019.
The most relaxing vacation of our lives!
Jodo is an amazing place! The main house is beautiful and has an amazing kitchen and game room. The view is unbelievable and sunsets are postcard worthy every night. The water right out front is crystal clear, calm and warm, and offers a neat little reef with cool sea life for all to enjoy. Plenty of Conch shells to cultivate as well!. The travel to Jodo is also part of the fun...taxi to ferry, to taxi but most importantly, an opportunity to talk to the locals and learn about their country and their recommendations. As North is removed from Provo, once at Jodo, we definitely enjoyed renting a car for a couple of days to explore the Conch Caves, Mudjin harbor, and the local grocery stores and Miss B's...a wonderful experience to take in the island culture. The Jodo team is also tremendous in their upfront coordination and support throughout the stay. Highly recommend Jodo for anyone looking for an island excursion that is as authentic as it gets.
Thanks Steve & Lara!
You're the best & can't wait till you come back to Jodo.
Beautiful villa, perfect spot
Our group had a wonderful stay at JODO -- two couples and three young kids. The pictures don't really do the property justice: the water is crystal clear, with changing shades of blue and turquoise throughout the day from morning through mid day to sunset. High tide is not ideal for very small toddlers, as the stretch of sand becomes only about 1-2 feet against the rocks (which are gorgeous and easy to walk on unless you need special accommodations) but our 3-5 year olds were fine. Low tide provides an ample 10-15 feet or more of white sand, with plenty of room to walk up and down the beach in seclusion. Shells galore, a few sea urchins, star fish, etc. The home is well equipped, but you will need to stock up on groceries on the main island if you are picky about what you eat throughout the day (e.g., specific brands of items or dietary restrictions) as the shops on North Caicos are limited. Our group did not shop there until half way through the trip when we were visiting for a boating charter, and we were just fine with the exception of not being able to find coffee. All four of the bedrooms are large, with the downstairs master being really huge -- an office and huge walk-in closet, etc. We had a great time relaxing at the house, swimming, exploring North & Middle Caicos, as well as taking a few boating charters. Highly recommend!
Thanks Liz! You're the best, come back to JODO soon.
Back to Jodo for the 4th time--we can't live without our fix!
My husband and I had a great time at Jodo again. The Jodo staff is excellent, very accommodating and helpful. Everyone goes above and beyond to insure your experience is first rate! I can't say enough good things about the house, the property , the beautiful beach...I could go on. The view of the ocean from the downstairs master bedroom is awesome..All the windows face the ocean--you can hear the surf at night and the cool breeze was wonderful . The gourmet kitchen had everything we needed. My husband is a chef and he was thrilled by the flat top. We had many great meals on the porch. The ocean and kayaks are great--there really is everything you could possibly want here.
Patti and her husband were just awesome..we felt like we were coming home. We will be coming back next year for our "fix"..we have decided we can't live without it.
Thanks Jan & Harold for the GREAT review! We can't wait to have you back at JODO, you are why we LOVE sharing JODO.
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.
