Summer at Long Bay Villas & Santosha Villa Estate

Long Bay Villas is Anguilla's most elegant and iconic ultra-luxury villa. The estate's three stark-white villas tier down the lush hillside that slopes up from pristine and exclusive Long Bay beach.

Next door to Long Bay Villas, Santosha Villa Estate sprawls across 4.5 lush acres. A 37,000 square foot West Indian-style estate, Santosha is of a bygone era. It is Anguilla's most grand ultra-luxury villa.

Perhaps most importantly of all, the two properties are renowned for their excellent service. This has been especially true this year, in times of Coronavirus.

Property manager, Patricia Bygrave and her staff have been going above and beyond to deliver the most blissful and safe escapes.

From setting up offices with printers and high-speed & dedicated WiFi for guests, to organizing private chef services with the use of the villa's separate commercial kitchen, Long Bay Villas and Santosha Villa Estate have been pulling it off.

Inside "the bubble," protocols include the use of PPE and separation of staff and guests. Despite the measures, the vacation experience is uninterrupted with chef services (thanks to the separate commercial kitchen) and beach access.

"There are truly no words to describe our stay here! Everything has been absolutely phenomenal. Every single person on the team deserves all things GREAT! This experience is one that sets the bar higher than any place we have been. We are beyond grateful for everything. Anguilla is hands down the most beautiful place we've ever been. The service is five-star. Thank you for having us. It couldn't have been better. We will miss it here and we will miss each of y'all.
The Cox family"

Patricia and her team have been doing such an outstanding job that guests have been extending their trips to multi-month long stays!

Once guests are out of "the bubble" (photos below)...

"It's "normal life,"" Patricia explains.

Guests are free to discover the island, dine at any restaurant, walk any beach.

Still, they are opting to stay on-property where Patricia and her team bring all of the conveniences of "regular life" into the villas...

  • Tutoring, nannying, tennis and swimming lessons for kids
  • In-villa barber services
  • Villa stocking & shopping

Between parents working remotely and children doing online school, "Cooking lessons with our chefs have become very popular as an activity, along with paddleboarding and kayaking for the kids," Patricia exclaims.

She and her team at Long Bay Villas and Santosha Villa Estate have been giving travelers a whole new lease on life.

With discounts for long-term stays, Long Bay Villas and Santosha Villa Estate make for the ultimate summer escape.
