Named one of the top 15 villas in the Caribbean by both Ocean Home and Islands magazines, but an extremely economical alternative to a resort. Almost all 5 star villas on Anguilla have marketing firms. As the owner of the Bird of Paradise, we're able to offer you rates at least 30% below comparable villas.
For gathering together, there is an interior living room with wet bar, an exterior living area with fireplace, a sundeck, and a covered veranda as well as hidden hideaways on this extremely private and secure property.
Sandy Hill Beach
This is a hidden hideaway. It took us a year to find what we believe is a perfect location on Anguilla. It's a crescent beach with panoramic views of the mountains of St. Barths and St. Maarten. It's excellent for swimming, snorkeling and walking. We do, however, encourage our guests to beach hop and each day your housekeeper will give you a newsletter from Jon and me with our suggestions for what to do on Anguilla based on our 30+ years of visiting. The island is 30 square miles and has 32 beaches.
Designed in an Asian tropical style with not one, but two lagoon-style pools surrounded by lush landscape. It's very rare to have a heated pool on Anguilla because of the high cost of electricity. Each of the pools has a swim-up ledge/bar for panoramic views.
Each of the four master suites has its own private veranda and an equal view of the Caribbean. No one is cheated! They're each equipped with a credenza and a hidden bar/coffee service for added comfort and privacy. An office can be set up as a nursery or 5th bedroom. Bathrooms vary, but include whirlpool tubs, indoor/outdoor showers, dressing tables, walk-in closets, and more. Note: a partnership with a nearby villa allows Bird of Paradise to accommodate up to 24 guests.
Services and Amenities
Bird of Paradise Villa offers all the spaciousness and comforts of a well-equipped home, but all the services and amenities of a resort. Standard services include a private concierge; daily housekeeping; and Jose will set up your beach chairs and umbrellas. Packages available which include car and driver, chef, food, and beverage. Scroll down for details.
Bvlgari amenities, bathrobes, hair dryers, beach bags, beach toys, a 100+ DVD library, flat screen TVs, cell phone, Wi-Fi, phone calls to North America and Europe are all standard.
The kitchen is fully-equipped with everything from a Kohler Pro-Task Center sink, wok, deep fryer to a KitchenAid mixer if you enjoy cooking.
Having a chef for a welcome Caribbean barbecue is wonderful after a day of traveling. I'd add on a sumptuous brunch the first morning, too. Bird of Paradise offers rates without a chef, but we are only one of 7 villas on Anguilla that have a chef on retainer, so we can offer you the very best pricing. If you go to a 3-4 star villa and want to add on a chef, expect to pay up to $400 for a single dinner, plus a service charge on all food and beverage and $12/hour for a server. Our rates with a chef are exceptional and we have no service charge for purveying food and beverage and the butler/server is included.
Rates on Homeaway are for our Basic 5 Star Package and 8 guests. Please note prices will be lower with fewer guests as we give back our savings in housekeeping and utilities when fewer suites are used. Entire villa, of course, will be exclusively for you. Below is a description of four sample packages or contact me to create your own.
Concierge to make all on-island arrangements and meet you outside of Customs. Daily housekeeping. Beach attendant to set up chairs and umbrellas. Bulgari amenities, Italian linens and everything as described above.
In addition to the "basic" package, have a car and driver transport you to/from the villa on arrival and departure. Chef Kylon will greet you with a welcome cocktail party. Food and beverage is included. Chef Kylon and your butler Tristan will return each day and prepare you your choice of a breakfast, lunch or dinner. Food not included.
Add on chef and butler for a second meal each day.
Chef services for 3 meals a day. Rental car(s) also included.
I look forward to telling you more,
