Manana Magic is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath villa on the southeast coast of Anguilla with views of St. Martin, St. Bart’s, Statia, and on a clear day St. Kitts/Nevis. Built in 2005 it is a traditional West Indian design utilizing ample amounts of Anguilla stone and gingerbread trim in its architectural features. Doors and windows are made of South American red cedar and are heavily constructed to withstand hurricane force winds. In fact, the villa has been through 4 major hurricanes including Irma sustaining virtually no damage to the structure.
The property is completely enclosed by a handmade stone wall and fencing. Gardens are planted with a variety of indigenous and tropical plants which create a beautiful setting that does not require excessive maintenance or water. From an infrastructure perspective the villa is energy efficient and eco-friendly. Electrical power is produced by a 8.2 kW solar pv system. The villa is primarily “off the grid” with the exception of the electric oven/microwave. The villa is still connected to local electric company so if need be, can transfer back to local electrical power. Sixteen lead acid batteries are adequate storage to get through the night hours. Hot water, dryer and cook top are gas. Water is provided by rain water collection into a 40,000 gallon cistern. Current owners do not need to purchase water. New in 2018 are a cook top, washer and dryer, gas hot water heater, pool pump and water pump.
An infinity edge pool and carport are included in the property. There is a large covered veranda around 3/4 of the house that could easily be enclosed to expand living space if desired. In the meantime relax in the pool and the veranda and take in the whale and dolphin sightings each winter!
