The phenomenal experience of staying at a villa just enhances your already amazing vacation in one of the most radiant and stunning luxury destinations on the planet. Anguilla is outstanding. And the best way to experience Anguilla is arguably in a villa. There are several reasons why villas are preferable to resorts or hotels, namely: space, cost, and privacy. With villas you simply have a lot more room to play with, to really stretch out on multiple thousands of square feet and private gardens, as opposed to even a beautiful resort suite located right next door to your neighbour. Privacy is a wonderfully welcome element, too, as in some other hotels you’re crowded in around the pool and the beach and the restaurants. (Actually, while this is definitely the case on other Caribbean islands, most of Anguilla is quite private and despite all 33 beaches being public, there’s a good chance you’ll have the beach to yourself and find privacy when you want it.) The other element is cost, for when you add up the price of as many rooms in the villa in a resort, you’ll find you’re saving money on the villa. So if you’re traveling with a family or group, and want to do it up in style, there’s no better way than renting your own Anguilla villa.
For the ultimate in intimacy, this villa takes the cake. Located on Anguilla’s northeast shore in a tranquil residential neighbourhood between Shoal Bay East and Island Harbour, Ultimacy Villa is breathtaking. Perched above the Atlantic with stunning views, the Ultimacy Villa comfortably accommodates up to 16 guests, making it the perfect spot for anything from a family gathering to executive retreats and conferences. That’s a whopping 20,000 square feet of luxurious indoor and outdoor living space on three storeys. There’s eight bedrooms and ten bathrooms (all gorgeous and comfortable); three living rooms on each floor with gracious space and cathedral ceilings; three kitchens, the main one a fully-equipped gourmet kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances; a recreation room with wet bar, big screen TV and classic Wurlitzer jukebox – as well as a fully-equipped fitness room next door with a variety of equipment to stay fit on your vacation. The crown jewel of Ultimacy Villa is the lavish pool pavilion: 5,000 square feet of luxurious oasis complete with large swimming pool, jacuzzi hot tub, daybeds and umbrellas and a covered gazebo with a full lounge setup including wet bar and al fresco dining. Take in the view from here and live up the days to their fullest.
Sand Castle Villa
Another gorgeous villa is Sand Castle, influenced in Tuscan style (from whence the original villas came). There are four bedrooms here within the sprawling 10,000 square feet of living space right on the beach of Anguilla’s North Shore at Limestone Bay. It’s white walls indeed makes it feel like you’re living within a sand castle (turrets and all) that rose up from the white sand beaches due to some sort of magic. On the sun-deck off the beach you’ll find the infinity pool, seeming to stretch off into the horizon. Grill up conch on the BBQ as you gaze out at the electric turquoise sea. As you enter from the deck you’re greeted with the Great Room in all its majesty and glory, attached to a dining area and media room. There are two master bedrooms on the second floor and two bedrooms on the main floor, each with ensuite bathrooms and balconies. OH, the Grand Master Suite comes with its own 52″ TV, outdoor shower, and en-suite fitness centre. Amazing amenities at Castle Villa includes on-site security with a private chef and butler available. That sounds pretty magic alright.
Villa Le Bleu
This glamorous villa is next level. Villa Le Bleu is ten bedrooms in a gorgeous private home away from home on two and half stunning acres within Little Harbour Estates. There’s not one but two swimming pools, not one but two beaches – with a thatched gazebo and BBQ and beach-side jacuzzi. There’s also a fitness centre, tennis court, and personal cinema. Within the Main House you’ll find eight of the bedrooms and the expansive common areas, like the entertainment zones on the upper level. There’s a gorgeous gourmet kitchen, fully equipped of course, along with the lounge and dining room that opens out to the deck and the amazing views of the neighbouring islands in the distance. The smaller Petite Le Bleu building houses the other two bedrooms, along with its own kitchen, living and dining areas, laundry, as well as its own pool with built-in BBQ and poolside shower. Viva la Villa Le Bleu.
