ISLANDS magazine asked its readers, editors and local experts around the world to select “The World’s Top 20 Villas” for relaxation, a scenic location and a villa that allows guests to retreat, but also indulge in the island’s offerings.” The only villa chosen on trendy Anguilla was the Bird of Paradise (http://www.AnguillaBird.com), a fabulously comfortable, sumptuous and very private home available for you when the owners are not in residence.

Located just above a quiet and secluded perfect crescent beach, the Bird of Paradise has breathtaking views of the Caribbean as well as panoramic views of the islands of St. Martin and St. Barths in the distance. If one was too lazy to walk to the beach, there are not one, but three pool areas, the most extensive pool system of any villa on Anguilla.

The Bird offers guests all the comforts of home-ownership, but all the services and amenities of a resort. Four buildings are intertwined with lush landscape and lagoon-style pools to create a private compound. No suite has an undesirable “garden-view”. Each of the bedrooms has a private, exterior entrance and a private veranda with equal views of the Caribbean.

There are multiple living areas, including an exterior living area with a fireplace, as well as a sundeck, wet bar, interior living room, covered veranda, outdoor bale or daybed, and hidden hideaways. There are four dining experiences. The expansive, indoor-outdoor living spaces are ideal for families or couples traveling together as well as for a wedding or honeymoon.

The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) honored the Bird of Paradise with an award for its interior design. The Asian tropical style is enhanced with the warmth of custom-made mahogany and teak furniture, stone carvings, and the owners’ Oceanic and African art collection.

Amenities include fresh-baked cookies upon arrival, Bvlgari toiletries, Italian linens, complimentary phone calls to the U.S., Canada and Europe, wireless internet, flat screen TVs, sound system, and a daily continental breakfast.

The Bird’s concierge will work with you prior to arrival to make all on-island arrangements and will meet you upon arrival at the airport or ferry. The concierge is, then, available 24/7 to assist. Golf, scuba, fishing, or steel drum lessons, as well as Anguilla’s restaurants and nightlife, are among the temptations that await you. The Kids’ Club is a service that entertains and enriches children in the privacy of the villa. It allows parents to feel comfortable so they can relax and enjoy their vacation knowing their children are supervised by a qualified professional.

Of course, if you choose, there is no need to leave the villa. Daily housekeeping is included and an executive chef and masseuse are optional.

Whether it’s a couple enjoying a honeymoon or a family of 8, the Bird of Paradise is surprisingly inexpensive compared to Anguilla resort villas and suites that cost 3-4 times as much for less privacy and space. Introductory rates disappear as of September 1. Any reservations for 2011 received prior to 9/1/10 will be at the 2009 rate.
