When only the best will do !

  • 5 of 5

We had the privilege to stay at this magical oasis this past Summer. This property is more like a private resort rather then a house. EVERYTHING is first class from the incredible 180' sweeping ocean views to the 2 home theaters and gym surrounded by a Koi pond! The staff is what you expect from a 5 Star resort. If you are looking for a First Class private getaway or the perfect destination for a gathering of family and friends, this is truly the place.

A Magical slice of Heaven!!

  • 5 of 5

This property is truly unbelievably!! We spent 1 week at this magical Paradise and did not want to leave!! The staff were exceptional, ensuring that our every question was answered and every need met and were invisible unless needed. The views and the location are unsurpassed by anywhere I have stayed, swimming in the infinity pool and watching Dolphins play like they are in your own backyard. The grounds are breathtaking and perfectly manicured with gorgeous one of kind pieces of artwork thoughtfully placed throughout! The gymnasium is fully equipped and with siding doors on three walls you can open and feel like you're working out in the rain forrest itself!! The rooms are spacious and have incredible panoramic ocean views and with the same option of opening 2 walls completely to give you the sense you are literally sleeping on the beach, amazing!!

The Sandy beach is just a short stroll away going thru a secret gate at the back of the property, to find great waves for body surfing or world class snorkeling just off shore. My kids were also in heaven with an amazing movie room with a starlight ceiling!! and a whole wing of the property just for games, PS4,Wii, XBox, pool table, Darts,ping pong and pinball!

Honestly there is nothing missing for an absolutely perfect vacation with a family or just a romantic gettaway, We will be back as soon as we can!!!
