Island Escape, comprising 3-bedrooms and 3-bathrooms, is a mariner's retreat; gently caressed by the tradewind breezes. Glass louvered windows on all sides of this carefully planned home allow for continual cross ventilation while protecting the interiors from the occasional squall passing by. Lush trees, bromeliads, flowering hibiscus, and numerous other tropical plants welcome the seafaring homeowner back to this outer island retreat.
Island Escape is one of approximately 20 homes that comprise the Indigo Plantation private residential estate on the western side of Great Camanoe Island. This well manicured estate has a communal inner harbour marina with a private slip for each home. The marina provides free haul out facilities, a tennis court, library, rest room, cistern water, barbecue and beach area complete with picnic tables and climbing trees for children, etc…
This protected marina is a short 10 minute skiff ride to the airport, Marina Cay bar/restaurant/ Pusser's shop, Trellis Bay shops, "Last Resort" on Bellamy Cay, Scrub Island Spa and restaurants, etc.
The nearby amenities on this covenanted residential estate help to make this outer island home a preferred winter retreat or year round residence.
This well designed home was recently renovated by the current owners, who used shades of light beige in natural stone to tile the floors, kitchen and baths. Its open plan allows the chef in the kitchen to enjoy and converse with their guests in the great room of combined living/kitchen and dining. The main living floor has a bedroom and bath on either side of the main living area. The spacious guest suite is below with private access where the location for a pool has been determined but not yet built. The garage and laundry with abundant additional storage are ideally located next to the lower driveway entrance.
A daily ride in a small runabout is part of the joy of living on Great Camanoe, helping to fulfill the pleasures of this glorified Robinson Crusoe existence. If you are dreaming of an island getaway with ease of access to the mainland in a secured community, this tropical retreat will be difficult to top. The pristine views looking both West and North over virgin forests, crystal clear Lee Bay, Guana Island, western undeveloped shores of Tortola are awe inspiring. The night sky is revealed in all its glory because there are no lights to interfere with the celestial show. Watching the soaring frigate birds and diving pelicans during the day help to ease a restless soul into the calm and serenity of "island time".
This exquisite, newly renovated, fully furnished home is a turnkey blessing to any first time island buyer; with a practical and functional design for tropical outer island living.
