I choose Ultra private, Iconic view, Fit for a billionaire, Party like a rock star and Genteel sportsman or woman. Its Caribbean luxury resorts at their finest.

There are 5 beautiful well appointed homes of different sizes with the largest being over 10,000 Sq ft. Each home boasts antiques, exotic wood furnishings, wrap around deck and of course your own private beach and day bed. After getting acquainted with your new digs why not go for a ride in your own speed boat or 28Ft catamaran.
