Long Pond Bay villa description

Inspired by Zen Buddhism; the term WABI-SABI translated means 'the Japanese art of finding beauty in imperfection and having a profound appreciation for nature'. At our home it is all of that in a refined, casually sophisticated, laid back lifestyle in a glorious natural setting that is a spiritual experience.

The WABI-SABI house has been built on a 1/2 acre of magnificent oceanfront property, just steps from the ocean with all of the modern amenities for a memorable vacation.

Enjoy spectacular 300 degree sweeping vistas of the Anguilla coast and landscape with no neighboring homes, construction or obstructions for miles. It's important for you to know where you are staying so we welcome you to click the 'SATELLITE' icon on this site to confirm and appreciate our privacy, views and accessibility.

There are two air conditioned ensuite king bedroom/bathroom pavillions surrounded by decks, a 40 foot saltwater pool, custom built kitchen with state of the art stainless steel appliances, Asian cabinetry, restaurant quality cookware and dinnerware and the highest quality indoor and outdoor designer furniture.

Our home is in a truly unique location in Anguilla. Even though we are surrounded by nature on all sides, the houses - in the geographical centre of the Island - are easily accessible from the main road and just 5 minutes from the best foodmarkets and beaches in Anguilla.
The constant tradewinds off the ocean keep the houses comfortable year round, the mosquitoes away and the prevailing sound we hear is the ocean breaking on the reef in front of the property.
The pelicans, doves, frigate birds and gulls are the only other creatures we see except for the occasional migrating whale or dolphin; so this is a time and place for you to simply relax and reflect and not be disturbed by the outside world.
Start your day with yoga either on the deck walk the coastline or simply slow down and allow time to unfold before you. There is a coral path that leads to a tiny sand beach in front of the house but please note; while we are right on the ocean - like many coastal homes in Anguilla - it is unadvisable except for experienced swimmers to swim in these open ocean waters. Anguillians do swim and fish here but the currents can be strong and access from the coral is a learned skill. There is another small sandy beach near our home, just a two minute stroll away, where you can sunbathe and take a quick dip but for swimming distances and great snorkeling we recommend that you visit the wonderful nearby beaches; either Sandy Hill Bay or Shoal Bay East just a few minutes drive from the house.

ABOUT THE KITCHEN; You're on vacation and just need a great kitchen that is easy to figure out and where everything works; so we custom-designed the kitchen based on our own travel experiences and 30 years in the restaurant business. Open, practical, very functional and very easy to maintain. Well lit and very well-appointed with plenty of storage, counterspace, top of the line cookware, a Viking restaurant gas range and stainless steel appliances.

Master bedroom/bathroom pavillion. A kingsize bed and a large private ensuite bathroom with double sinks, a sunken tub, bidet and large dressing cupboards.

Guest Bedroom/bathroom. A kingsize bed and private ensuite bathroom with walk-in shower and a 32' TV.

In our travels, we have rented many homes and like yourself, have been concerned that renting a home can be a leap of faith and that the property may not be exactly as it is represented. Rest assured that these pictures do not in fact do our houses justice; the live settings are even more spectacular than the pictures and we have attempted to provide as much accurate information as possible so that you will not encounter any unexpected issues when you arrive or during your stay. We provide extensive notes on our home and insight about Anguilla - where we now live most of the year - which we will gladly share with you.

                          In addition to the many activities that are available in Anguilla, we have a fine surfboard for surfers. There is a break at Meads and Savannah Bay which is worth the effort of getting there. For tennis players, we are members of the Anguilla Tennis Academy and a stay at our home will provide you with complimentary playing privileges at the finest tennis facility in the Caribbean.

                          For roadbikers, Anguilla is a haven for cyclists who ride the well-paved roads preparing for the annual John T Tour around the Island. Vehicles give way to riders and bike rentals can be arranged but bring your own clip-in shoes, pedals and a helmet.


                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2008

                          About the owner: The Canadian owners spend the Christmas holidays in Canada and travelled all over the world and throughout the Caribbean before deciding to settle in Anguilla. They learned of Anguilla through their familiarity with Nantucket, where they live in the summer. Both of these similar and remarkable Islands have many of the same wonderful features of beautiful beaches, fine dining, safety and welcoming people.

                          Why the Owner Chose Long Pond Bay:
                          We chose this property because it is right on the ocean, in a spectacular private setting with no neighboring homes either east or west. It is in the geographical centre of Anguilla, easily accessible from the main road and just 5 minutes from the best foodmarkets and beaches in Anguilla. There are Anguillian homes and friendly neighbors on the road to our home so we do not feel completely isolated and are part of the local community. It is just far enough away to be completely private but close enough to easily acquire all the provisions and services you will need.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                          Ocean, Ocean and more Ocean, Close to town Privacy, Views, Refinement Casual elegance and comfort Spiritual asethetic High quality mattresses and linens Designer furniture Restaurant quality cooking equipment No nearby construction or latenight bars Very few insects Large, deep, saltwater pools Filtered water
