About Villa iLaali, Little Bay
Built 16 years ago this charming Caribbean home offers modern accolades and boasts the “Best of Island Living!!” ilaali means “Welcome” or “Good Morning“ which is exactly how you feel as you enter through the double doors overlooking the pool deck and its serene white sandy beach below. Everyone’s dreams of a tropical retreat when the cold winters set in up North and ilaali Villa ticks all the boxes, complete with fruit-bearing trees of all sorts. Bananas, Papayas, Mangos, Pineapple and Soursop adorn this naturally kept and selectively-manicured 1.88 acre private estate, dressed with aromatic flowers and blossoming vines.
The designer of the dramatic horizon edge pool creatively used small ceramic and glass tiles to mimicked the colors of the teal and blue green seaside below. The pool is large enough for swimming laps, or simply relaxing and lounging by the waters edge. It’s easy to get lost in Paradise at Ilaali Villa, while sipping margarita’s, reading a book, or just staring out to sea and being mesmerized by the idyllic beachside views of the nearby Guana Island. One can see the occasional motor yachts cruising by or a variety of sail boats weaving and tacking through the water passage between Hawksnest, Tortola and often anchored at the ever popular Monkey Point on Guana Island.
This residential estate home offers a modern 3 bedrooms, 4 bath primary residence with an independent 2 bed 2 bath guest house. One would be hard pressed to find a better more complete family retreat or vacation rental home, above such an idyllic secluded beach and nestled below dramatic 20-30 foot palm trees.
The spacious indoor and outdoor living and lounging spaces of ilaali Villa were designed to catch the cooling year round easterly Caribbean breezes. Convenient 1-2 minute footpaths to the beach and a paved road access to and from town makes living there heaven. 3 interconnected main structures with both opened or enclosed covered lounge areas, sunbathing decks were designed to create ergonomic living spaces such as a spacious outdoor kitchen with both covered and uncovered barbecue and dining patios.
The primary house offers high cathedral ceilings in the main living, dining, kitchen and master bedroom plaza and also a well-appointed outdoor kitchen and barbecue area separating the independent outdoor dining pavilion from the main kitchen and living structures. This Caribbean delight comes complete with large laundry room, extra pantry, additional storage rooms above and below and a poolside 3/4 bath with reflective emerald and teal blue glass tiles designed to accentuate those found by the pool and beach below.
This home rests in a perfect little valley where breezes seem to be continually blowing. The easterly winds pass through a mountain pass which funnels the easterly breezes down and through this extremely well-reinforced concrete block and heavy timber-roofed home.
