Description from owner


Sports Illustrated chose Bougainvillea House Villa as their location to shoot the cover photo of the 2016 Swimsuit Edition featuring Ronda Rousey in body paint as their model.

Billionaires, and Hollywood celebrities like Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem, ronda Rousey, Kyle Richards, Mauricio Umansky, Glenn Close, David James Elliot, Nanci Chambers, Maury Povich, Connie Chung; and others have chosen Bougainvillea House Villa for their relaxed ocean front vacations; because of the beautiful beaches, deluxe services, and uncluttered privacy.

The 'Swimming Pigs Tour' is popular with many of our guests and is managed by local tour operators. It starts at 8:00 am and runs a full day up into the 'Out Islands' and includes Nicolas Cage's Iguana Island, the Pirates of the Caribbean sandbar, the swimming pigs at Staniel Cay, the Shark feeding at Compass Cay, snorkeling at the Thunderball 007 grotto; with a final stop for lunch and refreshments at the Staniel Cay yacht club. The cost is about $175 per person for the day.

Bougainvillea House is top rated and is featured in Elite Traveler, Gulfstream Jet magazine, Bombardier Jet magazine, Ocean Home magazine, Air Canada Enroute magazine, and Cathay Pacific magazine.

Response from the owner Attn: Carsten von der Heyden VON DER HEYDEN Personalberatung GmbH Auf der Eierwiese 9 D82031 Gruenwald We appreciate your taking the time to provide us with a constructive review, even though you have never stayed at our property, and the reservation was not made on the TripAdvisor website. We apologize for any confusion over the daily $50 additional fee to cover the cost of extra maid service, that you requested, over the Christmas and New Year holiday period. We became concerned when you threatened legal action, twice, the same day that you made your reservation. We do not think that our home would have been a good match for your needs, and that is why we canceled your reservation. Perhaps you will give us an opportunity to meet your needs in the future, without involving lawyers for a reservation that is seven months in the future. Best regards
