Welcome to Babylon Reef, a freshly renovated oceanfront villa, with sundeck and private pool, situated directly on one of the best shallow snorkeling sites on the entire island. Protected by a coral reef, there are rarely any currents or waves to contend with so children can play in the shallows all day.
The villa offers 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths accommodating a large family or two smaller families. The ocean views are stunning as soon as you walk through the front door. Natural light and scenic ocean views flood the entire living area through the sunroom's tall sliding glass doors which can be opened to allow a breeze to flow through on days when A/C is not necessary. Cute Caribbean architecture and a modern open concept design lend a great "island feel" throughout. A full modern kitchen complete with standard equipment and appliances overlooks the dining area with seating for 6. An outdoor dining table off the pool deck and under tall palm trees is also available.
The ground floor master suite includes an ensuite bathroom, king size bed, and direct access to the pool and sunroom. Guest bedrooms on the upper floor share a large bathroom and come furnished with a king size bed and two twin beds. Both twins can be converted to a king bed upon request.
Babylon Reef's private, well landscaped lot includes a white picket fence, soft zoysia grass lawns and a large sandy backyard around the pool. The owner provides a cornhole set on the beach complete with boards and bean bags, plus kayaks for exploring, beach hammocks for relaxing, and an outdoor shower with hot and cold runing water.
With an empty lot on each side, Babylon Reef is a quiet and private retreat. The beach here can be both sandy and pebbly depending on the time of year, however, we advise guests to bring pool shoes to avoid foot injuries. Two large resorts with water sports, manicured sandy beaches and oceanfront bars and restaurants are just a short 10 minute drive east.
