Overview

About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Oceana, Anguilla offers tranquility, romance, and casually elegant tropical living. The villa's open design maximizes sea views and ocean breezes, inviting you to experience a private vacation retreat. Set on a breezy hillside overlooking picturesque Crocus Bay, this bright and airy villa provides sweeping ocean vistas from one of the highest points on Anguilla.

Villa Oceana offers one of the most unique views on the island - world famous Little Bay, Sandy Island, and Flat Cap peninsula, which shelters Crocus harbor. The villa's central location is ideally situated between the high-end resorts and restaurants of the West End and Shoal Bay East, one of the Caribbean's best white-sand beaches.

Built as two levels on almost one acre of land, the design allows for views of the ocean from almost every room, as well as the lush green valley of Anguilla and distant hills of St. Martin. The interior and exterior living spaces total over 5,000 square feet. Oceana's great room leads out to an expansive, arched, tiled patio and deck. The outdoor terrace features covered dining al fresco and a dramatic 12' x 30' curved infinity-edge pool. Unique natural travertine floors seamlessly unite the indoor and outdoor living spaces.

The main level features a spacious living area with tropical contemporary furnishings and entertainment center, fully-equipped kitchen featuring granite countertops and Viking appliances, a separate dining area, and an air-conditioned king master suite with en suite bathroom, including both a walk-in stone shower and open-air outdoor shower.

The upper level includes the second air-conditioned master king bedroom/bathroom suite, furnished with an inviting four-poster bed and both indoor and al fresco showers. The bedroom opens out to a scenic private balcony and pergola, overlooking Crocus beach. The bi-level floorplan also includes a mezzanine with queen sofa sleeper that leads out to a large verandah and lounging area perfect for relaxing and viewing spectacular sunsets.

Beautifully furnished with tropical style and comfort, and fully equipped with everything you might need, Oceana provides a serene and inviting ambience, heightened by breathtaking views. A perfect setting for barefoot elegance!

About Rick Holubowicz

Rick and Michelle are the owners of the recently completed Oceana Villa. We live in Wisconsin and are the parents of an eight-year old son named Sawyer, who is already an experienced Caribbean traveler!

The Caribbean has been our passion since we honeymooned in a private villa in St. Martin in 1993. In our wildest dreams, we never expected that we would one day build a villa of our own. We returned to St. Martin countless times over the years, and discovered the charm and beauty of Anguilla via day trips. Once we fell in love with the island and its people, there was no going back. We have put our hearts and souls into this villa and designed every feature to reflect what we love most about the Caribbean, down to the last tile! We welcome you to our home, and hope that your stay will be truly relaxing and memorable.

Rick Holubowicz purchased this villa in 2011

Why Rick Holubowicz chose Caribbean

We chose to build our island home overlooking Crocus Bay because it is the area where we took our first day trip to Anguilla while on our honeymoon. We fell in love with this particular spot because of the spectacular ocean view, the privacy, and the tranquility that the location provides.

What makes this villa unique

To quote the translation of the name of one of our favorite restaurants in St. John, Asolare, it is the 'purposeless, agreeable, leisurely passing of time' that we experience each time we return to our island home. We can't imagine any other place on earth where you can feel that way.

WOW! Just Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for our 27th anniversary in mid June 2017. We found the Villa to be everything as promised, a fantastic view, great layout, decorated with great care down to the detail. It was a real treat to stay in such a place and we are thankful the owners offer it up for others to enjoy. The location was great as well. Quiet at night and pretty much during the day as well. Just a few minutes drive to Sandy Ground as well as the Shoal Bay area where Gwen will make you a rum punch that is worth the trip! We grabbed pizzas one night and enjoyed dinner and sunset on the villa patio. It's definitely worth planning an evening to dine in and enjoy the magic of the Anguilla sunset. Booking was great, the housekeeping staff super friendly and helpful. Communication throughout the process was very good too. We look forward to a return visit and found Anguilla, the people of Anguilla, and the Oceana more than we could have asked for!

Perfect in every way!!

  • 5 of 5

If you are reading reviews of this home trying to decide if it's right for you....STOP RIGHT NOW AND BOOK IT!! It is absolutely exquisite. The view is obviously spectacular. Both master suites are equally beautiful, luxurious and spacious. My wife and I have been to Anguilla several times and although we love all the glorious beaches, during our recent stay at Oceana we didn't want to leave the patio. Every single thing about this place is top notch. The owner is incredible to work with and the property manager and housekeepers are superb.

I could write a novel about every detail I loved about this place but will spare you the ramblings. We eagerly look forward to having the opportunity to stay at Oceana again.....SOON!!

Perfect Villa

  • 5 of 5

We recently had our second stay at Oceana and it was a perfect choice (again).

Location: The location is central so you have a very quick trip to Crocus Bay, Sandy Ground or the Valley and you also aren't too far from either end of the island. Lovely sweeping views of Crocus Bay

Home: The villa is impeccably decorated, with no detail left to chance. The artwork, decorations and even the lighting all highlight the beautiful home and view. The furniture is nice but comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked, linens and pillows are plentiful. The coffee every morning on the comfortable chairs outside of the master bedroom with sweeping views was perfect. The cocktails on the sunset lounge were also ideal. The pool deck always has sun AND shade so you can choose either throughout the day and the furniture is comfortable. Again, pool towels are plentiful. The fact that the pool is heated makes a huge difference, it is always inviting.

People: The owner and management company were both very quick with responses to any questions that I had (and on my first trip I had a lot!). Sheila, who takes care of the Villa, is lovely. Always willing to answer questions and help out with any information we need.

We went with our two children (young teenagers) but it would also be perfect for couples. There are very few options for smaller villas that are also this beautiful, if you are looking for one, this is a perfect choice!

Owner's Response: Thanks Larissa, We are glad you enjoyed your second stay at Oceana. Thank you for your glowing review. It's always great to hear that others like and appreciate it as much as we do. We can take credit for the villa, but the beautiful panoramic view is what really makes it. Come again sometime.

Relaxing experience

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a week in February. It was a very relaxing experience. The best part was the heated swimming pool that made our early morning (before sunrise) and late night ( after sunset) swimming a pleasurable experience. We also enjoyed star gazing from the beautiful veranda. Da Vida restaurant in Crocus bay is excellent for lobster. If you don't eat it all ask for a doggy bag and enjoy your breakfast omelette with lobster the next morning like we did. The kitchen is well stocked. The views are great ( but not from the pool, as it's a little bit too low to see the view of the bay when you are swimming ). Overall we were very pleased with Oceana and would recommend staying there.

Absolute Delight

  • 5 of 5

Impeccably designed and appointed Villa with seating arrangements in so many different areas it s like a different view each day. Sunrises to the east , sunsets to the west , marble floors all around and location central to the Valley area. Private surroundings for peace and quiet. Oceana is exactly as advertised on the site and should not disappoint

Perfect for 2 couples

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the best rental property I have rented in the Caribbean and I'm very picky. It is immaculate, roomy, beautifully appointed, and well-serviced. It is many months later and I still bask in the glow of that vacation. The pool is a treat and the sunsets are gorgeous. I love to cook and the kitchen was well stocked. It is the perfect villa for two couples. It's so hard to find a place where the 2nd bedroom isn't a lesser bedroom. Both bedrooms are private (on different floors), have king beds, and their own bathrooms.
