Style Notes

Luxury, all-inclusive coastal retreat. This exclusive villa has space inside and out with an open plan, great room featuring a 27-foot ceiling and lots of floor space for kids to play. Views at every turn are of the pool, lush garden and the blue ocean. The décor is a mix of textures with teak furniture with walls and floors of local sandstone and marble. Bedrooms are opulent with high quality linens and stunning contemporary bathrooms. The property has all the convenience and luxury of a hotel but the privacy and quiet of a luxury villa. We love the pool area with its uninterrupted views, the world-class facilities on the doorstep and the many activities available to keep the kids happy.
