Anguilla Villa Rental Photos and Description

Beach Villa With Two Swimming Pools, Four Master Suites, Indoor/outdoor Living.

Designed in an Asian tropical style with three buildings intertwined by lush landscape and lagoon-style pools. Ideal for families and couples traveling together.

Rates vary depending on number of guests in residence, the season, and the services and amenities that are included. Please contact the owner for details. The rates at Homeaway are for 8 people, but lower prices are available for smaller groups.

Each of the four master suites has its own private veranda and an equal view of the Caribbean. 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.

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. 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.

A 33,000 gallon heated lagoon, style pool, as well as a second 6,000 gallon plunge pool.

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. Please contact owner 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 kitchen-aid mixer to a table-top grill if you enjoy cooking. Chef Hull will be available to cook lunch and dinner for a nominal fee. In-villa spa treatments also available.

About Melody Brooks Dill

Jon and I worked for an arm of the State Department and traveled the world for business. We always were on the hunt for the perfect beach. Anguilla is a winner! We moved from Washington, DC, and now live in Wisconsin.

Melody Brooks Dill purchased this villa in 2005

Why Melody Brooks Dill chose Caribbean

After visiting Anguilla for 25+ years, we decided to build and completed the villa in 2006. It took a year to find what we think is the perfect location. We sit above the extremely private, perfect crescent beach of Sandy Hill Bay, a hidden jewel. We love the east end of the island because it's not touristy, but also because we get great trade winds. For Jon, it was important not to look into a black hole of darkness at night (Atlantic side of the island is west). He wanted to be on the Caribbean side (east end) to see the lights of St. Barths and St. Maarten in the evening.

What makes this villa unique

We had traveled with friends and family for many years renting homes. Jon and I ALWAYS picked the short straw and got the worst room in the house with no view. When we built the Bird of Paradise, we made sure we had all master suites, all with a private verandah, and all with a view!

The Bird of Paradise is positioned so it's extremely private and protected, with panoramic views from every room as well as from the swim-up ledges of the two swimming pools.

Although, the villa was designed by Wilson Associates, resort designers, that have created Armani, Four Season, and numerous Ritz Carlton resorts, the Bird of Paradise was created as a private home. Guests often remark how they feel so comfortable and can quickly and easily relax in the private, home-like setting.

The villa showcases our Oceanic art collection, which we've collected on travels to Papua New Guinea, Borneo, Solomons and beyond. There are numerous books on the subject.

Spectacular Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this home with several friends for a very special occasion (50th birthday), and had the absolutely most amazing vacation. The home is as beautiful in person (maybe more so) than the photos, there is such attention to detail, and it is maintained with such care. The house comes with a fantastic staff, and is so smartly designed for entertaining. The bedrooms are pretty evenly balanced, so each of our guests were very happy with where they stayed. The property managers are very attentive and helpful, and the home comes with a chef that makes beautifully prepared meals. The other household staff is very friendly, and they keep everything together whether it's keeping Frette towels available for swimming, or the bedrooms in perfect order. As mentioned, there is such eye for detail, and the home has many interesting artifacts collected from travels around the well as pretty planted flowers, and native plants. We could not recommend a stay more highly. Go and ENJOY!

Paradise At The Bird

  • 5 of 5

The Bird or Paradise in Anguilla is even more beautiful than what we expected from the online photographs. We traveled with 3 other couples, flew into St. Martin and took a boat over to Anguilla, arranged by the concierge. We were met at the dock and driven to the Bird. After a long day of travel, we enjoyed the magnificent view of turquoise waters and warm breeze as the chef prepared drinks and delicious island cuisine to welcome us to Anguilla. We had the villa to ourselves and it was wonderful. Attention is paid to every detail from the Bulgari bath products to the cheerful and helpful staff. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. The chef prepared breakfast every morning, and then we hopped around the island enjoying beaches, beach bars and restaurants at Mead's Bay, Sandy Ground, Shoal Bay and Crocus Bay. A member of our group enjoyed driving--this is a British island, so one drives on the left--but we were told the Bird has a personal driver available for future guests. The Bird's beach is only a 5 minute walk and we were also happy to swim and lounge there. We would recommend Scilly Cay for lobster and crayfish, Straw Hat for dinner, Bankie Banx for drinks and music, Elvis for drinks, and Blanchards Beach Bar and DaVida for lunch and the Pump Hose for music and dancing. St. Bart's is only 15 minutes by private plane and makes a fun midweek day excursion. We would highly recommend the Bird of Paradise and Anguilla. Pack lightly because it's a very casual island.

Top villa on Anguilla and tops in the Caribean

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth trip to the Bird and it did not disappoint. It was spectacular. The Chef was responsive to our dietary needs, and his artistic presentations were beyond our expectations. The staff, as in the past, we're friendly and helpful when needed and had the property in perfect condition. Having traveled to Anguilla for 30years, and experiencing many villas and hotels, our family is now spoiled by the Bird of Paradise and will not stay anywhere else on the island.
