We’re big fans of Anguilla here at Islands, but then, who wouldn’t be? The postcard stamp of a tropical isle dishes up everything from sandspun beaches to gourmet Caribbean cuisine within its surprisingly diverse yet compact 35 square miles.
And with this year’s opening of a new ultra-luxe villa tucked into a hillside in Shoal Bay East, there’s one more reason to plan a trip to this little trammeled corner of the Caribbean just east of Puerto Rico.
Overlooking a white sand beach and calm blue seas, the five-bedroom/seven-bathroom Villa Alkera just begs for a family or multi-generational getaway where outdoor dining, alfresco showers, and an overall indoor/outdoor living scheme deliver a true Caribbean sense of place.
The 12,000-sq. ft. home built right into the limestone hillside is modern throughout, with rooms opening to walk-out patios designed to maximize 180-degree views. Did we mention the infinity pool with a floating island platform and hammocks swinging in quiet nooks? Instant escapism guaranteed.
