Along with a sailboat and a rental car (yes, you read that right), you get 2 homes: one with 1 bedroom and the other with 2 (3.5 bathrooms total). You also get a beach right on the property where you can use that sailboat as well as snorkel and fish. There's a rooftop patio, numerous outdoor lounges, a lawn, a heated pool, 2 outdoor dining areas, separate guest and service gates and parking areas, gardens, kayaks, fishing gear, and surf-wading boots. Says one satisfied reader, "Truly a lovely villa that spared no expense in meeting every need and desire. Exquisite property with unparalleled views of the water".
Welcome to L'Embellie Villa on Anguilla's Forest Bay, an elegant three-bedroom villa and cottage set on one acre of lush tropical gardens and white sandy beach. Secluded and private, L'Embellie Villa guarantees quiet relaxation, but is within a short drive to the island's superb dining and beaches.
Most days at L'Embellie there's no need to wear shoes, let alone leave the property. Tiled paths wind through the gardens and connect the two homes with the heated pool, umbrella covered tables and the property's beach.
Mornings at L'Embellie Villa start with that first cup of coffee as you watch the sun rise over the Caribbean Sea from the rooftop patio. Spend the rest of the day indulging yourself sunning in the privacy of your own sandy beach, interrupted only by the pelicans cruising above you, or lounge with a good novel on the lawn. Or snorkel the reef. Then cool down with a refreshing dip in the landscaped freshwater swimming pool among the coconut palms and hibiscus. By evening, sip a gin and tonic while you grill local crayfish, served on the back patio under the starlit Anguillian night sky, all before falling asleep to the cool Caribbean breezes on the luxury linens and bedding.
L'Embellie Villa is composed of 2 homes: a 2-bedroom Beach Villa (king beds) and 1-bedroom Garden Cottage (queen bed), ideal for children or a third couple interested in privacy. The Garden Cottage is secluded from the Beach Villa to provide complete privacy, yet connected to it by terra cotta tiled paths. (The cottage cannot be rented separately.)
The small bay on which L'Embellie Villa is located has very shallow water with sea grass. Water shoes are suggested. It is not a good swimming beach but is great for snorkeling.
