You now live a life where boating has become part of your daily routine. You live away from the chaos of the mainland, in a close-knit community where you have an extensive social life and your house reflects your greatest passion of all – sailing and the thrill of a nautical lifestyle. Where you want to go is way down to Kokomo, on the island of Great Camanoe, presented by BVI Sotheby’s International Realty.
Named after the popular Beach Boys song celebrating the contagious lifestyle of the tropics, Kokomo is a home built for a special kind of owner.
Your journey to your private slip in the sheltered Indigo Plantation Marina begins with a slow and intoxicating cruise on your personal vessel from Tortola’s Trellis Bay. When you arrive at your private dock, you then take your ‘Mule’—a four-wheel automobile similar to a golf cart—and begin to drive up smooth, paved roads to your new home.
Approaching Kokomo, the essence of peace, privacy, and tranquillity overwhelms you as the local-stone exterior and Caribbean charm of the architecture is warmly welcoming.
As you enter the villa, you are fascinated by how you have found the perfect living room which complements your love for sailing. You smile at the creativity of your stairwell, adorned with a bannister made of sailing rope.
Your kitchen has been built with the right materials to withstand the tropical Caribbean climate. All the modern appliances juxtapose the old-world sensation of the unique decor, including a one-of-a-kind lighting fixture fashioned from an old diving helmet from the turn of the century.
A covered alfresco dining area invites you to host special dinner parties for your close community of neighbours, as does the expansive stone patio area overlooking exclusive views of Guana Island and Jost Van Dyke on the horizon, where you can witness the most magnificent sunsets.
Take a refreshing dip in the custom pool system with Jacuzzi jets designed to blend in with the natural stone surroundings. Why not take a walk through the meticulously landscaped gardens and enjoy the mix of flora, cacti, and greenery including citrus and banana trees?
Inviting bedrooms for family members or guests are located downstairs, each with an en suite bathroom and outdoor stone showers, one with an option to bathe in an antique tub.
Of course, you choose to keep the upstairs master bedroom for yourself as the unrivalled view of the lush tropical surroundings and ocean can be witnessed directly from your four-poster king bed. Astonishing vistas of neighbouring islands and the ‘big skies’ at night are secrets that are unique to Great Camanoe. Nowhere else in the BVI can one enjoy a natural painting of the mainland and Anegada extending to St. Croix.
Your private community on the island, Indigo Plantation, is a treasure because not only do you have a built in set of hospitable friends, but you love the sense of security of a homeowner’s association and access to common areas including tennis courts, a small library, and the private marina right onsite.
Day-to-day adventures of your Great Camanoe lifestyle include five-minute boat rides to the luxury facilities on Scrub Island, private lounging at the beach on Guana island, enjoying a bite at Pusser’s on Marina Cay, or simply relaxing on your resident island.
When trips to the mainland are craved or essential, Trellis Bay is only a ten-minute boat ride away where you can dine, shop, or appreciate the convenience of unbeatable proximity to the airport.
“Everyone on Great Camanoe enjoys getting away from the ‘hustle and bustle’ of a busy lifestyle, yet appreciates the privacy and sensation of a close-knit community,” said Jim and Denny, owners of Kokomo. “We treasure the exclusive perspective from Great Camanoe not visible from the mainland, and especially our own personal nautical touches present in our proud home, Kokomo.”
If you celebrate your passion for the open water and feel you’re ready for a unique lifestyle here in the BVI, a peaceful welcoming community await to greet you on Great Camanoe. Kokomo—that’s where you want to go.
