Your Own Private Island with Mansion. Located close to the Caribbean coast of Nicaragua, this 26 acre coral cay has been transformed into the ultimate getaway, featuring a most luxurious and beautifully detailed home away from home.
Designed with ultimate comfort and privacy in mind, the Villa is comprised of two separate pavilions connected by a covered passageway. The largest pavilion (28m x 8m) includes the spacious open plan living / dining / entertainment area, a separate study / family room with full en suite bathroom which easily converts to a bedroom for guests, and two identical double bedrooms, each with an en suite bathroom featuring a Jacuzzi bath, "power shower", and inset hand basin with solid brass American Standard fittings throughout. The separate master suite is reached via the family room / study and measures 12m x 8m. Matching His and Hers bathrooms are located to the rear of this pavilion behind the dressing area.
Both pavilions are equipped with adjustable louvres at a level of 2.5metres which take advantage of the cooling breezes which characterise these Cays. The 14 pairs of French doors all open entirely outwards, and the doors can be secured to encourage indoor-outdoor living.
The unique design of the house incorporates the use of folding doors in lieu of walls at the front of both pavilions, allowing spectacular views past the beach and nearby Cays to the mainland coast and the setting sun.
There are currently two piers on the island. One adjacent to the Villa, with a traditional kiosk built over it, which provides an interesting alternative dining venue, and another at the main beach, where most visitors arrive. Both piers are constructed of local timber with coconut trunk foundations. The reef surrounding the cay will only allow entry to boats with a shallow draft.
