Coldwell Banker BVI is delighted to offer this entirely unique estate for sale.
Named after a Swahili expression which translates as ‘Hurry, hurry is no blessing,’ Baraka Point is situated at Nail Bay on the west coast of Virgin Gorda.
Baraka Point sits atop a rocky promontory between the postcard perfect beaches of Mountain Trunk and Nail Bay.
The property has been successfully operating as an exclusive private retreat since its completion in the early 2000s with consistent rental revenue, and has built up an international reputation that has been well documented in the world’s most prestigious travel sections and publications.
Designed with the most discerning of travellers in mind, Baraka Point captures the colours of the Caribbean and sets them against hard woods, sumptuous handmade silks, and ethnic furnishings from Indonesia, India, and China.
Winding pathways of local stonework lead through two acres of tropical gardens out of which rise the 12,000 square foot villa’s distinctive copper-peaked pavilions with five king-size ocean view suites, and an additional four small children’s bedrooms. A fourth, larger pavilion incorporates the spacious living, dining, and entertainment areas of the villa and two additional pavilions house the spa and waterfront Games Room respectively.
An infinity-edge pool of which dreams are made leads to the Seaside Deck: a wooden veranda built among the boulders on the edge of the ocean. It is the perfect spot to end the day with a tropical cocktail and a Virgin Gorda sunset view.
Overlooking the ocean, the Games Room has a full-size pool table, home theatre room, and wet bar. A roof terrace overlooks the beach, providing functional and versatile space for events and entertaining. This pavilion also has air-conditioned conference facilities and can be used for corporate retreats.
Baraka Point has three 900 square foot master suites, each with a private entrance, air-conditioned sleeping area, sitting and dressing areas, and ocean views.
The Kerala Master Suite is a heavenly space featuring rich colours and a giant hand-crafted teak four poster bed with ocean views. The Kerala Suite also has its own plunge pool with a private sun terrace.
Two 700 square foot family suites—Madura and Rajastha—each have a king-bedded central sleeping area with two adjoining twin bedrooms so parents can maintain their privacy, but feel at ease in the knowledge that their children are close by.
An additional en suite bathroom and sleeping accommodation are available in the Games Pavilion, ideal for teens wanting their own space. The outdoor covered deck area makes a model setting for meditation or yoga practice to the sound of birdsong.
The kitchen at Baraka Point is currently used by the permanent chef on staff to create world-class cuisine for groups of up to 14 people, so you can be assured that it is fully equipped to the highest standards including: stainless steel appliances, wine cellar, wood-burning Italian pizza oven, and an Italian gelato machine to mention a few with the addition of a built-in outdoor stainless steel barbecue for alfresco cooking.
Environmental sustainability is central to the operating philosophy of Baraka Point and sets the property apart from other estates on the island. The tortoise enclosure is home to nine tortoises, which consume all the fruit and vegetable leftovers from the kitchen and form a valuable part of the estate’s recycling plan.
Only natural fertilisers are used throughout the two acres of tropical gardens preventing chemicals leaching into the soil and running off into the ocean causing damage to the abundant coral and marine life.
Likewise, environmentally friendly cleaning products and insect-repelling sprays are used inside the house. Rainwater is collected in a 70,000-gallon cistern and all wastewater is recycled, UV filtered to ensure its purity, and re-used in the irrigation system for the gardens.
Baraka Point branded still and sparkling water is bottled on-site using cutting edge technology and re-fillable, sanitised glass bottles from Vivreau, Canada.
The air-conditioning units in each bedroom have Mitsubishi technology which use 30% less electricity than the average unit.
Privacy and tranquillity at Baraka Point Estate are assured – the additional amenities of the Nail Bay Resort can be reached within a short walk.
