Description from the manager
BeachCourt's name comes from two of its greatest assets: on Shoal Bay beach and with a magnificently
situated tennis court.
On one of Anguilla's greatest beaches sits one of its greatest homes: BeachCourt Villa at Shoal Bay East,
a 10,000 square foot luxury villa with swimming pool and tennis court on sloped land that goes directly
to the western end of Shoal Bay. It is one of the very few houses on all of Shoal Bay whose property
brings you right to the sand.
Built on a hill, the house sits about 40 feet above the water, maximizing views and breezes. Yet—as
you sit on its spacious decks—you are a short walk from the magnificence of Shoal Bay, its blues and
greens, great for walking or snorkeling (enter the sea right in front of the house for some of the
finest snorkeling you will ever experience).
Go through the lush gardens, past the tennis court, to the water; turn right, and over 1½ miles
of beach lay before you. Swimming, snorkeling, and leisurely walks are all right outside the gate that
insures your privacy (and keeps out the goats).
Visit BeachCourt Villa through this site. After that, you will visit it in person. Your greatest vacation
has just begun.
BeachCourt is open, spacious, and built to accommodate large groups efficiently and luxuriously.
Its center is a 900 square foot "great room".
This open plan kitchen, living room, and dining area is terraced
below the grand entrance foyer and overlooks Shoal Bay's greens, blues,
and whites. On one side of this room are sliding glass doors
that open onto an expansive covered 600 square foot deck, above the swimming pool,
tennis court, and sea.
The living room features a full home theater (wall-mounted flat screen tv with
satellite and cable, along with DVD and iPod dock) surrounded by plush, brightly
upholstered Thai furniture. Perfect for reading (and napping).
The interior dining area accommodates more people than the villa holds (with dishes
and place settings for many more). Or, enjoy your meals on the spacious deck, just
a few feet away.
The great room has its own granite-topped wet bar with refrigerator and ice-maker.

Great Room Pool Deck
The great room is bounded on two sides by a gracious covered deck, which is really an extension of the
These 600 square feet—with comfortable furniture—offer commanding views of the
fresh water pool, the tennis court, and all of Shoal Bay, to the north, east and west.
BeachCourt's kitchen is for people who love
to cook and love to eat: over 30 feet of “L-shaped” granite counters
hold two double-bowl sinks, dishwasher, and cabinets, all beneath
A separate island has a five-burner cook top and oven. Professional equipment includes
Cuisinart food processor; electric hand-mixer; blender; coffee makers; and all manner of pots, pans,
work bowls, knives, whisks, spatulas…everything for the avid chef or the first one up to make coffee.
The Omnicourt (rubberized undercoating makes it very easy on the feet) tennis court sits directly
above the beach. The views are breath-taking. If you love tennis and beautiful surroundings, BeachCourt is your paradise.
The 50' X 15' fresh water pool is perfect for lap swimming or a refreshing dip after snorkeling or
walking the beach. Its expansive deck (covered in non-slip travertine) is terraced just beneath the
Great Room and its covered veranda, so that the "sun worshippers" and 'shade-sitters" can be together.
From this perspective you overlook the sea, to the east, north, and west. Just look at the pictures
in our Gallery.

The dressing area features a two-sink marble vanity and ample closet space.

Marble vanity, wall mounted hair dryer and shower in its own bath. Air-conditioning and remote

The West Wing Bedrooms
BeachCourt Villa's West Wing is a 2-story structure attached to the main house's west side (hence "West Wing") at the pool deck level.

feet each), with adjoining private bathrooms. The first floor likewise
has two bedrooms (280 square feet each) with adjoining private
bathrooms. All bedrooms are fully air-conditioned and have individual
marble vanity sinks with wall-mounted hair-dryers.
BeachCourt's "backyard" is Shoal Bay East, one of the Caribbean's most magnificent beaches. The villa is on an acre, where
the talc sands of Shoal Bay end—you walk the entire beach, but almost no one walks by you.
Within the gate (whose primary purpose is to keep out the goats) are all manner of tropical gardens:
oleander, bougainvillea, allamanda, palm trees, and local grasses surround the house, tennis court
and beach path; planters adorn the pool deck as well.
The Best of Both Worlds
BeachCourt gives you the "best of both worlds": the magnificent views and cooling breezes of being
on a hill yet a short walk directly to the sea and sand. The beach path goes through lush vegetation
and its gate is not visible to the occasional passer-by. Your privacy is assured.

Brisk, Cooling Breezes
BeachCourt Villa does not require air-conditioning because of the brisk, cooling
breezes. Nonetheless, because we know that some people "must have it",
all of the bedrooms are fully air-conditioned. While you are welcome to use it, we
predict that—once you experience the sensory delight of sleeping with open (screened)
windows—you will reach for your light quilts, not the A/C switch.
