Set on a magnificent stretch of dramatic coastline with sweeping views of the Caribbean, 5-bedroom Villa Amarilla is the epitome of a perfect luxury island retreat. Designed by Anguilla’s own acclaimed architect Carl Richards, Villa Amarilla’s design is Caribbean with an Italian influence in its yellow stucco walls, turquoise shutters and red tile roof. The cool island interiors by the owners in collaboration with award-winning Dallas interior designer David Salem & Associates have hints of Moroccan flair.
With spacious indoor and outdoor living and dining areas, Villa Amarilla offers ample room in 9,000 gorgeous square feet. Located on Anguilla’s Leeward north side, on the Sea Rocks of Island Harbour overlooking some of Anguilla’s most beautiful reefs, you will never tire of the mesmerizing view as it changes continually with the tides from iridescent aquas to deep sapphire blues. In addition to the beauty of the surf breaking on the reefs the panoramic views include Shoal Bay Beach to the west and Scrub Island to the east. The sound of the waves breaking on the nearby rocks will further soothe and relax the senses. Shoal Bay Beach, a two mile stretch of powder white sand and crystal clear water is a short drive from the villa and a small secluded beach is a short walk away.
