The Residences at Secret Bay Sets Highest-Price Sale Record in Caribbean Island of Dominica

The Residences at Secret Bay just sold the most expensive vacation home estate in the country ever for US $7.1 million. The Clifftop Villa Estate compound, situated on a waterfront promontory 200 feet above the Caribbean Sea, comprises four villas in total — including two primary architectural estate villas and two companion villas, totaling 9,786 square-feet of indoor-outdoor living across more than an acre of land. Perfectly perched atop an ultra-private clifftop, the exclusive off-plan residence boasts five spacious bedrooms, four gourmet kitchens and three plunge pools. The fully furnished villas include a number of customizable and personalized features, and are outfitted with state-of-the-art appliances, including: De’Longhi espresso makers, a Siemens suite in the kitchen, Breville panini presses, iPads, Apple TV, Samsung televisions, wine coolers, charging stations for electric vehicles, access to a funicular and more. Seamlessly blending into the jungle-meets-sea landscape by way of sustainably sourced architectural materials and an indoor-outdoor floor plan, the villas embrace the essence of Secret Bay living. 

“This is a significant milestone, not just for The Residences at Secret Bay, but also the country,” said Gregor Nassief, proprietor of Secret Bay and The Residences at Secret Bay, and Chairman and CEO of GEMS Holdings Limited. “This was a collaborative endeavor between the buyer and Secret Bay to fully achieve their dream to have a composition of luxury villas with three pools perched high upon more than an acre of waterfront promontory above the Caribbean Sea. Further, beyond hassle-free ownership and access to the award-winning resort amenities, the new owner will benefit from their villas being part of Secret Bay’s rental program.”

Additional benefits include: access to Secret Bay’s high-performing property rental program, management and upkeep of the property, and commitment to leveraging the network to facilitate resale.
