Originally a two-room boathouse and changing room used by Princess Nina Aga Khan as an adjunct to her house in San San overlooking the reef and bay, Crystal Cove is now a charming, idiosyncratic, three-bedroom villa in the Jamaican Georgian style; enjoying sea views from every room, a variety of living areas for sunning, reading, eating, and offering unrivaled access to the reef-protected lagoon for swimming, snorkeling, and kayaking. Step into the sea which laps at the walls of the living room, and swim out to the reef only forty yards away - it's quite shallow inside the reef - only about eight feet in the middle. Or snorkel along the reef in either direction, to the left leading you to Princess Nina's island, to the right to the Blue Lagoon, passing many charming vacation homes at the water's edge. Kayaking takes you through the reef-protected lagoon to either destination in minutes.
A private dock for sunbathing, or admiring the sunset, two terraces, an indoor/outdoor living room, a shady almond covered terrace for outdoor dining, a living/dining room all face spectacular views of the reef and the turquoise 'swimming pool' a step away.
