The impression upon entering Coral House is of exquisite good taste and impressive attention to the details.
Coral House provides a provocative blend of period and contemporary characteristics. Indeed, the villa's restoration was influenced by the needs of an active family with a sublime eye for design and details. With over 12,00 square feet, the home is set within enchanting gardens and grounds.
Entrance is through a dramatic courtyard complete with palms, lush tropical foliage and even a Koi fish pond. Beyond the courtyard and villa are the striking and commanding views of the clear waters of the Caribbean. The courtyard leads to an elegantly but comfortably furnished covered terrace. Beyond is the living room with French doors that open dramatically to the vistas of sea and sky. All of the details of Coral House provide the perfect feeling of a tropical escape.
Indeed the villa's architecture and materials are very reminiscent of a true plantation style and exhibiting the influence of the famous theatrical designer Oliver Messel. French louvered doors seem to effortlessly bring the outdoors in and creates a masterpiece of designs and character
The open concept plan blurs the boundaries between the indoor and outdoor spaces providing for both formal and more casual living areas. Coral block walls, inlaid green marble flooring and plenty of light add warmth, color and texture. The interiors feature soft shades of white and cream and enhance the peaceful ambiance.
The elegant living room is set between the Caribbean and a lushly covered terrace. It is located just a few steps from the beach, private swimming pool and large furnished verandah.
A beautiful dining room opens to the views of the ocean and lush gardens. It's striking white upholstered chairs are a dramatic contrast to the rich wood table that can easily accommodate up to twelve guests. It's the perfect place to be completely pampered with outstanding meals prepared by the chef at the villa.
The warm and inviting kitchen has French limestone counter tops, plenty of seating and top of the line appliances.
A separate library provides the ideal space to relax with a good book or enjoy movies on the 52 inch TV or play a board game.
Guests will be delighted with the spacious family room which is located just off of the kitchen. Tastefully decorated in crisp white and blue, guests can enjoy watching the 60 inch TV complete with surround sound speakers, Apple TV, Blue Ray and all types of high tech "goodies" such as X Box, Fuse Ball and lots of games.
Built on two levels, all of the villa's five luxurious bedrooms are all furnished to the highest quality and nicely equipped with TV's, Apple TV, Vonage phone and security system. All of the bedroom suites feature bathtubs and showers. The beds are piled high with plump pillows and duvets and all have en-suite baths. Each of the guest suites offer either a dramatic ocean view or a view of the soothing lush courtyard. The furnishings are of the highest quality and include many antiques and unique pieces. They all include a sitting area as well as Apple TV, phone and Wifi. Appointments include Waterworks sinks and cabinets and some offer interior connections.
The master suite provides a welcome retreat with stunning ocean views as well as its own beachfront terrace. The suite has a king sized bed and the bedding and towels are all very luxurious. Additional amenities in the suite include a Victorian bathtub, marble shower and even an area to enjoy a massage.
For guests who would like to stay fit during their stay or maintain their yoga, Coral House has a separate mirrored studio that is outfitted with weights and yoga mats. If desired, private instructors can be hired to come to the villa to augment their stay.
The outdoor amenities at Coral House area truly exceptional. Set at the edge of the beach but kept private with it's lush bougainvillea and tropical plantings is the gorgeous furnished pool deck with the villa's private heated swimming pool as the focal point. Here guests can enjoy alfresco dining in the beachfront dining pergola complete with outdoor speakers. Two beachfront daybeds provide additional space for relaxation and contemplation.
For additional enjoyment, there is a glass bottom canoe, regulations sized volleyball court and even a ping pong table. Indeed, as spectacular as Coral House is it is this outdoor area set on one of the most magnificent beaches that will whisper like a siren to guests of the villa.
Coral House is staffed by an exceptional and professional team of five that seems to anticipate a guest's needs even before they reach their own consciousness. A few of the staff members actually reside on the property. The staff includes a housekeeper, butler, chef and a gardener who tends to the magnificent grounds. Guests will enjoy the pampering that can only be experienced at a staffed home to include service for all meals as well as pool and beach side service.
Coral House is truly another world and provides an exceptional home and location and beach to the most discerning guests.

We enjoyed the most exceptional stay at the Coral House! Everything and I mean everything was perfect! The home is stunning and no detail has been overlooked. The pool area, the views, the beach-all incredible.
We have stayed in many fine villas throughout the Caribbean and felt none compared to the Coral House. It's an elegant home that provides the perfect backdrop for gracious living on one of the Caribbeans best/if not THE BEST beaches. It features stunning architecture and stunning interiors. It was spacious and welcoming. While beachfront the home was set back far enough to retain it's privacy. The views and the Grace Bay Beach were truly icing on the cake except then there were the services of a chef to completely pamper us. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Our recent stay at Coral House was utterly amazing! The villa offers unspoiled paradise on the sugar white sands of Grace Bay Beach. The villa provides all amenities to include a full staff for complete pampering. We rarely left the villa as it was almost like staying at your own private resort.
