Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: I retired from the hectic career of work as an active trial lawyer. I sought a house for me and my dad 'Willie' to enjoy my retirement and his golden years. The house had a real warm feel for the love and companionship that I shared with my dad. Since it was his wish to live in the warm and beautiful Caribbean, when I found and bought this ocean side house, it was truly 'Willie's Wish'
Why the Owner Chose Cane Bay: 'Willie Wish is a unique home on the island. You will never be lost, because almost everyone on the island knows the house. A friend who came to visit did not believe me, so he took my challenge. I was not available to pick him up from the airport so he went to the taxi stand and simply asked to be taken to 'Wille's Wish'. 20 minutes later he was at the front gate with no other instructions. The house known on the island for not only it's physical beauty but for its warm and wonderful spiritual beauty. It's ocean side location and open beauty has been the tropical venue of a couple of friends exotic weddings.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: Fall asleep to the sound of ocean waves and the warm caress of the trade winds.
Wake up in the morning to the sound of the tropics, exotic birds the sound of the gentle surf.
Go for a casual walk along the oceans just outside the gate and turn right 30 steps to the beach or go for a vigorous hike up the road and trail to the top of Mt Eagle the highest peak on the island, right outside the gate to the house and turn left. On the hike up to the top of Mount Eagle you will find a breath-taking view of the entire island. On the hike up experience the wild, tropical plants and birds along the way. A unique photo opportunity. You may also see the occasion island deer that popular the Cane Bay area.
