Little Bay villa description

Anam Cara Villa is a unique vacation home located directly on the water in Little Bay, South Sound, Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands. The Villa's spectacular private waterfront location is in a BVI designated marine sanctuary and near one of the last undeveloped landscapes on Virgin Gorda. The views off the decks and balconies range from looking directly down at sea turtles, various tropical fish and the occasional mantas swimming below to stunning views out to sea with endless waves rolling up on the offshore reef. To the sides and behind you are views of the surrounding mountains and hills of Gorda Peak National Park. Your closest neighbors are the parade of marine life below, pelicans and seabirds above and cows grazing serenely on the distant hillsides.

Anam Cara Villa is comprised of just under 5,000 square feet of tropical modernism architecture spread over two buildings designed for seamless indoor outdoor living. The five bedrooms are all en-suite. The three large master bedroom suites all have king size beds and large spa bathrooms complete with both indoor and outdoor showers, double vanities and soaking bathtubs. Upstairs in the main house are two additional en-suite bedrooms with private balconies directly over the water below. The main floor features a large gourmet kitchen connected to the outdoor living area through large 8ft by 10 ft doors and a unique breakfast bar with an 8ft by 5ft serving window. The kitchen/dining area merges into the living area which has two separate seating areas and stunning sea views. The lower level hosts a media room for watching movies or just hanging out.
Outside living features 12 separate decks and balconies each with it's own unique views. The centerpiece of the outdoor living area is your own resort like horizon edge pool complete with a swim up bar and outdoor sunken kitchen with barbecue. The saltwater pool has both a waterfall and laminar flow water features with fiber optic lighting. Pool lighting colors can be changed with a wireless remote control. All of the indoor and outdoor areas are tiled with natural travertine stone. You can choose to relax on the deck letting the marine and bird life of South Sound entertain you or simply hang out by the pool.

Just a short one mile drive away is the North Sound welcome center and dock where the various free water taxis will take you to the many restaurants, resorts and yacht clubs for drinks, lunch, dinner, shopping, or entertainment. North Sound is a destination unto itself whether it is Biras Creek resort, Bitter End Yacht Club, Saba Rock Resort, Leverick Bay Resort or the new Yacht Club Costa Smeralda Virgin Gorda clubhouse!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  Why the Owner Chose Little Bay:
                  It was love at first site when we first ventured off the main road into South Sound. The drive was like nothing we had ever experienced. The road first passes along the waterfront beach with palm trees, then past a horse stable and working farm with cows grazing. At the end of the this short drive we arrived at the unspoiled Virgin Gorda we were seeking. The road opens out onto a stunning sea view facing into the gentle trade winds. We knew we had found our own Caribbean paradise, our 'Anam Cara.' So in 2007 the adventure of building began. Our goal was to create a retreat where families and friends could gather in an unforgettable setting. A place for renewal and sharing. A place for remembering the important things in life like laughter and love. At the same time we wanted to respect and minimize the impact on this very special setting. We were the first house in the BVI to use the environmentally friendly ICF building process. We also wanted to take advantage of the natural cooling and refreshing trade winds in the architectural layout. Other 'green features' include dual grey water recycling systems for the gardens, cool roof technology and other 'green building' systems. All the rain water from the roof is captured for reuse in a large cistern. We wanted to keep the electric usage (and our bill!) low by using energy efficient water systems and lots of LED lighting. There is very little night time light pollution which makes for spectacular star gazing as well. There is no noise pollution as the only sounds are from the birds above and the sea gently rolling along the offshore coral reef.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                  Anam cara is an Irish language term meaning 'soul friend.' According to Celtic spiritual tradition, the soul shines all around the body like a luminous cloud. When you are very open, appreciative, and trusting with another person, your two souls flow together. This deeply felt bond with another person means you have found your anam cara, or 'Soul Friend.' Your anam cara always beholds your light and beauty, and accepts you for who you truly are. In Celtic spirituality, the anam cara friendship awakens the fullness and mystery of your life. You are joined in an ancient and eternal union with humanity that cuts across all barriers of time, convention, philosophy, and definition. When you are blessed with an anam cara, the Irish believe, you have arrived at that most sacred place: home. We hope that our home in Virgin Gorda will become your own 'Anam Cara'.
