A pair of ocean idylls in the BVI and Mallorca

I’m fairly sure it doesn’t get much better than 100 Pond Bay for a paradise island getaway. This newly built, 8,000 sq ft BVI idyll is a five minute drive from the Virgin Gorda yacht harbour, commercial centre and main ferry dock of Spanish Town.

The house, which includes its own spacious spa, is set back from the water and slightly elevated, affording views to drool over. A private path leads you to Pond Bay’s beaches (pictured) in no time.

What’s extra great about it, though? The design, we say: the property is sun-filled year round and designed to ensure that the main pavilion and each of five dreamy bedroom suites have unobstructed views of the ocean and neighbouring islands.

What about the land? Located on an acre of virgin hillside, 100 Pond Bay is brushed by strong tropical breezes. A private entrance through a beautifully landscaped area leads to parking for the main pavilion and each suite. We should hope so.
