The Island Jewel of the Western Caribbean

The Resort Villas at Pristine Bay

T

he first eleven 2 bed/2 bath air-conditioned luxury villas, each with unobstructed views of the beach and ocean, offer three different floor plans from 2,500 to 3,100 square feet (including covered deck and outside deck area).

The fully-furnished Resort Villas at Pristine Bay are inspired by Caribbean architecture with high, white-washed ceilings; stained wood trusses and trim; Italian terracotta tile roofs; wood shutters; and white plaster walls. Other features include spacious bathrooms with the finest fixtures, large great rooms, full-service kitchens, dining and living areas with French doors opening to expansive terraces, infinity edge pools, and more. Owners acquire a free-standing villa fee simple (whole ownership) and enjoy full access to all resort amenities. They receive 65 days of annual usage while owning the land and building as the villa accumulates hotel villa revenue (evenly pooled and allocated based on owner usage) when they are not visiting the Resort. Prices range from $825,000 to $895,000 including their own infinity edge pools facing the ocean. Amenities The Resort Villas at Pristine Bay will feature 60 rooms and suites, a full-service spa, restaurants, bars, 2 large infinity edge pools, 1,000 ft. private white sand beach, a tennis club, and The Black Pearl Golf Course, designed by Pete and Perry Dye. It boasts incredible ocean views on 14 holes and a signature island-green, par-3 11th hole. A 75-slip, full-service marina near The Black Pearl Clubhouse will provide deep-water access for a wide variety of vessels. The five-star Resort and Spa at Pristine Bay is scheduled to open in late spring of 2012 and will be managed by Destination Resorts, Ltd., which also manages Victoria House Resort on Ambergris Caye, Belize. Pristine Bay Located on the lush, tropical island of Roatan, 35 miles off the northern coast of Honduras, Pristine Bay is on a 400-plus acre site adjacent to the Caribbean Sea. The azure waters feature the world’s second largest barrier reef off the island coast, famous for world-class fishing and scuba diving, providing one of the truly unique, stunning backdrops for golf in Central America and the western Caribbean.

Virginia’s Eastern Shore Community Escape from the everyday to the coastal tranquility of the Eastern Shore of Virginia. It is unlike anywhere else on the East Coast and home of the famous 17 mile Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel where you can “follow the gulls” to drive across the sea to our community from the south. It’s a reminder of a landscape and coastal lifestyle from a bygone era, scenic unspoiled coastlines of farms, islands and bays, wildlife, waterfowl and abundant harvests from the sea. Today our rural way of life offers you an old-fashioned country lifestyle of tranquility, with affordable small town properties, historic homes and stunning waterfront land, rich in the history of our first settlers dating back to 1619 when they established the first English settlement along the shores of Old Plantation Creek near Cape Charles. The Eastern Shore is a 70 mile long peninsula that separates the Atlantic Ocean from the Chesapeake Bay, it averages only eight miles wide, so the open blue water is never far away, nor are some of the best fishing, boating and saltwater recreation opportunities in the mid Atlantic region. The Shore is an area boasting a colonial heritage and breathtaking natural surroundings that provide year round activities for any member of the family. We have many scenic inlets, bays and rivers providing access to the Atlantic Ocean or the Chesapeake Bay. It’s a relaxed, country pace of life, where small villages and towns are scattered across a scenic coastal landscape amidst farmland and forest. Just a short drive will bring you to metropolitan amenities including opera, theaters and museums, shopping and restaurants in Virginia Beach and Norfolk. We also have Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus golf courses and a world-class yachting center, as well as major medical facilities and local shopping right here in our community. Our location in the mid Atlantic provides a mild four season climate. We pride ourselves in our focus on conservation, protection of our fragile coastal areas and the quality of our waterways, where a small boat is all you need for inshore boating and the enjoyment of isolated, pristine barrier islands, with glistening white sand beaches. Large portions of our community have been designated by the United Nations as a Biosphere Reserve, a distinction given few places on the planet. We are surrounded by water, with the Atlantic Ocean on our East wrapping around into the Chesapeake Bay. We have two National Wildlife refuges, one at Chincoteague/Assateague and one at Cape Charles, along with Kiptopeke Beach State Park, several wildlife management areas and the Nature Conservancy’s Virginia Coast Reserve. We’ve protected our scenic coastal way of life for future generations of your family to enjoy with a modern approach to conservation and enlightened environmental stewardship.
