Tranquil Tides is a strong well-constructed villa crafted with carefully chosen materials. Green technology, hurricane glass windows, Anguillian natural stone, Crema Marfil marble, and wood detailing are used throughout. Our villa was conceived as an island home for our family, and was designed by the world renowned Caribbean architect, Carl Richards. It was constructed by the fine Anguillian builder Gene Proctor and his team of craftsmen. Mr. Oris Smith provided beautiful custom cabinetry work and utilized his skills as a local carpenter , boat builder and sailor to craft our lovely bar in the shape of one of his vessels. We are blessed to have developed special friendships with each.
During your stay, you will witness the reds and purples of a tropical sunrise, the brilliant blues of the ocean water, the iridescence of the afternoon glitter on the sea, the pristine white sands of Shoal Bay East, and you will fall asleep to the soft sound of the eternal waves, to the sound of tranquil tides.
The villa is located in Shoal Bay East, on the “east end” of the island . Some think the “west end ” of the island , with its new development , is a bit more ” trendy “. However, repeat and seasoned travelers enjoy the more traditional east end . It is now well recognized that the east end, including Shoal Bay East and Island Harbour , is home to numerous world class restaurants. Some of the best restaurants on the island are just minutes away from the villa, and some of the most talented chefs on the island have relocated to the east end. The proximity to the white sands of Shoal Bay East and the wonderful restaurants situated nearby makes for a very desirable and convenient island location.
The villa is located one lot back from the Atlantic ocean . This was the ideal setting for our family . We have expansive , unobstructed views of the ocean and beach from the first and second floors , and gentle , steady breezes throughout the villa . One can enjoy the same advantages of being directly on the water without the harsher effects of sea spray and wind. Most importantly, we are an easy walk to the sand at Shoal Bay East . We think you will be pleased with the view , quiet privacy , and proximity to the ” best beach ” . Please click through the photo section for realistic images of our views.
