Anguilla's Bird of Paradise Villa
Sandy Hill Beach
Rated One of the Top 20 Villas in the World by Islands and Ocean Home Magazines.
Recommended by Conde' Nast Johansens.
Nominated by World Travel Awards as best ultra luxury villa on Anguilla.
Bird of Paradise, an Anguilla luxury villa, stands out not only for luxury but for value. Unlike most Anguilla villa rentals, the Bird of Paradise is marketed by owners, Jon and Melody, and not a management company, which allows for the best possible pricing for a luxury villa on Anguilla. The villa boasts an award-winning architectural interior design, not one but two pools, a perfect crescent beach, as well as luxury amenities and a staff that continually receive rave reviews. We’d be happy to give you a quote.
What makes this Anguilla luxury villa special? Bird of Paradise was designed and decorated by Wilson Associates, professional resort designers for, among others, Armani, Four Seasons, and Ritz Carlton. As described by one writer, the Bird of Paradise is a luxury villa with a “WOW” factor. The villa has been featured on magazine covers, and has won a Gold medal for design from the American Society of Interior Design (ASID), and it has been named one of the top 15 villas in the Caribbean by both Islands and Ocean Home magazines. The best references, however, come from guests. We hope you have the time to read the guest reviews, which we continually update.
Unique layout. Bird of Paradise is designed in an Asian tropical style with multiple buildings and two lagoon-style pools surrounded by lush landscape. This creates an interior compound with absolute privacy and security. The unique floor plan also transforms every bedroom into a master suite and gives every room a panoramic view of the beach, ocean, and surrounding islands. This provides each guest with their own, separate space, in addition to four separate living and dining areas for gathering together.
Privacy: The villa offers all the privacy, comforts, and spaciousness of your own home. Unlike many villas on the island, you are not part of a group of villas and do not share staff or the property with others. The staff works exclusively for you and the villa offers the same services and amenities as a hotel, but at a lower cost. A luxury villa is ideal for families and for friends traveling together, or for a honeymoon or special anniversary. Chef, in-villa spa, personal trainer, yoga, kids’ club and more can all be arranged. Learn more about the advantages of a luxury villa rental versus a hotel.
Not one, but two pools! The villa has two swimming pools and 33,000 gallons of heated water, which is a true luxury on this small island where few luxury villas have heated pools. A swim up ledge allows you to take in the panoramic views of Sandy Hill Bay and the mountains of St. Barth’s and St. Martin.
Beach Location. The island is only 16 miles x 3 miles, so it’s easy to get anywhere. It took us a year to find what we believe is a perfect location for our home. While we enjoy our panoramic views overlooking Sandy Hill Bay beach in front of the villa, we, also love to beach hop. Bird of Paradise is especially close to Shoal Bay, Crocus Bay, and the longest, most private beach on Anguilla, Savannah Bay, is only 5 minutes away.
All master suites. The four master suites each have a private veranda and views of the beach and the mountains of St. Barth’s and St. Martin. For added privacy and comfort, each suite has a hidden bar and coffee service. An office can be set up as a fifth bedroom, which is often used for young children or as a nursery. Bathrooms vary, but include indoor/outdoor showers, whirlpool tubs, dressing tables, and walk-in closets, etc.
Option of two villas and 12 bedrooms: For large groups, Bird of Paradise has a partnership with a neighboring villa for a total of 12 bedrooms, which is ideal for family reunions, large multi-generational vacations, or weddings.
Space to gather together and celebrate. For gathering together as friends or family, the Bird of Paradise offers four living/dining areas, including an interior living area with a wet bar, an exterior living room with a fireplace, a sun deck, and a large covered veranda. The villa offers true indoor-outdoor living as entire walls completely fold away for 270-degree views, welcoming the breezes and fragrances of this tropical paradise. We offer seating for 50 and dining for up to 22 guests. To see every room of the villa, check out our video tour.
Space to sneak away. In addition to each suite having a private veranda, there are hidden hideaways on the property including a hilltop deck with a hammock and an Indonesian day bed among a grove of palm trees, perfect spots to sneak away and read a book.

Villa Services. Your services include a concierge to greet you on your arrival and make all your on-island arrangements. Michelle will give you a cell phone, so you may contact her from wherever you are on the island. Chef Kylon will welcome you with rum punch, the villa’s signature champagne cocktail, and canapés. You will arrive to find the bar and kitchen stocked as you requested. The IT tech will make sure you are connected to the internet and your iPod to the sound system. Brenda and Anna will come daily for housekeeping, and Jose will set up beach chairs and umbrellas for you. We have packages where, for your convenience, we can add into your pricing a car and driver for arrival and departure, a rental car and a chef and butler.
Chef Services. We understand that a luxury villa rental might mean total privacy to some of our guests, whereas to others it means added services. Bird of Paradise has a chef on retainer, so we are able to offer economical chef and butler services for one, two or three meals daily. We design packages to fit your budget. We offer sample packages, but we welcome the opportunity to customize a daily rate especially for you. You put together the services and amenities exactly as you want them for your Anguilla luxury vacation.
Children are welcome at the Bird of Paradise. We have sand and pool toys, DVDs, and lots of games. The design of the Bird of Paradise is especially safe and private in that you enter the property through remote-controlled gates and, then, at the end of the driveway, you enter the compound through another set of wooden gates. Stone-chiseled walls draped in bougainvillea surround the interior living areas and pools. Your concierge can arrange a “kid’s club” or babysitting options.

Let us give you a quote? Unlike most luxury villas on Anguilla, we do not have a single price. Our rates vary depending on the number of guests in residence. For example, if you are a single couple who wants the luxury and ambiance of a private home, the entire villa will be exclusively for you, but we give back to you our savings in utilities and housekeeping costs for using only one of the suites. We, therefore, have different pricing for 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 bedrooms. We offer the option of no chef or a chef for one meal, two, or three meals a day. Check out the four sample packages we’ve put together or let us design one especially for you.
