Secluded estate, Little Bay is an exclusive beachfront villa on Virgin Gorda with a private island feel, encompassing the Beach House and the separate Guest House at Camelia Point.
Exquisitely stunning, panoramic views bless this property in abundance as it’s situated on the north-east arm of Virgin Gorda on the North Sound Channel, neighbouring YCCS and sitting across from Prickly Pear, Eustasia, and Necker Island.
The geographical location is one of the highlights of Little Bay, emphasised by Little Bay’s owner Jack Setton who said, “It’s on the mainland of Virgin Gorda but it’s only accessible by boat, so it has that private island feeling of being exclusive…It has the best in views from Camelia Point and The Beach House…The North Sound is known to be the best neighbourhood…”
Overlooking the North Sound Channel, decorated with its myriad of sail boats and cruising yachts, Little Bay’s vista includes Prickly Pear, Eustasia, and Necker Island.
The owner—who is an avid boater—relayed that the location of the property benefits the yachtie lifestyle. “The North Sound is perfect for sailing,” he said. “The waters are so protected that all vessels from small hobie cats to big sail boats are safe.”
From the property, the view panning to the right allows sight of Saba Rock and Bitter End Yacht Club, and to the left is Moskito Island and the coastline of Leverick Bay and Gun Creek.
Comprising approximately seven acres of land, the property includes the Beach House with interior cover of 5,055 square feet and 1,350 square feet on the exterior, and the Guest House at Camelia Point with 1,500 square feet under cover.
In building the home, Mr. Setton had it in mind to present, “a secluded home in the Caribbean where the weather is perfect, and the protected waters provide a safe anchorage in a safe environment.”
Little Bay allows residents—who love the attractiveness of the Caribbean—to enjoy it to the fullest. The owner professes that, “The beauty of the numerous islands is undeniable. The setting for a boater is unique and the people are very nice.”
The Beach House is built on two storeys. On the first floor—slightly elevated off the ground level—is a porch which spans the front of the villa and the beach side. An outdoor dining table promotes alfresco dining on the porch and relaxation while imbibing on the attractive seascapes.
The interiors of the property comprise an ultra-contemporary theme in a minimalist, classic, timeless style from Design Within Reach. White oak flooring channels throughout the property with concrete and plaster walls. Stairs have stainless steel cable and oak flooring on the threads.
The first floor has a spacious drawing room with a king-size lounge bed, dining table and chairs, and clusters of couches and lounge chairs.
The Beach House has four bedrooms and Camelia Point Guest House has two. The master bedroom features a curved 105-inch smart screen and a media console designed by Nathan Yong. All other bedrooms include 42-inch wall-mounted smart televisions; every area has Vitra Cork Stools.
The Beach House has seven bathrooms. The Master bedroom has two bathrooms, for ‘him’ and ‘her,’ and a 72 x 36 Oceana Tub with aero massaging jets.
The three guest suites all have one bathroom, and the staff bathroom and visitor’s powder room are additional.
Camelia Point has three bedrooms and three bathrooms all fitted with pleasantries that maintain the warm, modern hospitality.
The kitchen with a six-burner Brigade range cooking appliance, two dishwashers, three refrigerators, a walk-in pantry, maid’s room, and laundry area, exceeds the expectations of many home owners.
A road linking Camelia Point, the Beach House, and the docks allows a fluidity between the areas. The two docks and water-sport ramp are the aqua enthusiast’s idyllic scenario. Near the beach, there is a storage house accommodating water-sport equipment.
With Little Bay situated adjacent to YCCS, Biras Creek Resort, Bitter End Yacht Club, and Saba Rock, easily accessible luxury amenities are offered; exquisite restaurants, water sports, and docks for residents who may have a passion for sailing are present.
Being 20 minutes by boat from Terrance B. Lettsome International Airport, 20 minutes from Virgin Gorda Airport, and 20 minutes from Spanish Town—the commercial centre of Virgin Gorda—shopping and travel are effortlessly afforded too. This is an attractive boast of Little Bay; although secluded like a private island, everything can be reached with simplicity, giving the owner the choice of blissful solitude or bustling sociability.
