ANANDA IS UPDATED AND UNDER NEW OWNERSHIP! This ultra-luxurious beachfront estate is located on the prestigious Banks Road, just two miles from the town of Governors Harbour and walking distance down the beach to Tippy’s famous beachfront restaurant and bar. Ananda has been featured on TMZ and in LIFE & STYLE Magazine.

The Ananda Estate consists of a two-bedroom main house and two detached pavilions. The three houses are set around a courtyard. The centerpiece of the courtyard is a 50 x 20 foot oceanfront infinity pool. It is flanked on one side by a vast 400-square-foot sitting area beautifully appointed with new outdoor furniture, and on the other side by a swim-up bar, a sitting area, and an outdoor kitchen equipped with an electric grill. There is also a gas grill on the terrace. A 12 x 8 foot Zen-inspired Buddha water fountain imported from Bali overlooks this magnificent pool area and bestows its serenity on the courtyard. (The pool can be heated if desired for a propane usage fee of $200 per day.)

Beyond the pool is a spectacular mile-long pink-sand beach, pristine and usually deserted, with only a few other houses along the full length of it. The pink of the beach and amazing aqua and turquoise of the water greet your eye from virtually every room of this stunning estate. There are multiple outdoor beds overlooking the beach that provide wonderful places to camp out for the day, evening or overnight. Enjoy the most amazingly bright stars you have ever seen.

To add to your experience, there is a sports yard with beach volleyball, badminton, a new format for beach pickleball, tetherball and bocci ball using coconuts. For the waterfront, we provide kayaks and paddleboards, as well as snorkeling equipment for the reefs that are 200’ from either side of the Ananda beach stairs. There is a ping pong table on the back terrace and a links-style putting green in the front circle. We have Starlink super-fast internet, satellite TV with hundreds of channels and movies, and a selection of books and games. Ananda is our home, and we love to entertain, so we continue to add activities!

Entering the main house through the 10 x 6’ wide swinging Balinese doorway, you are greeted by a Caesar-stone gallery with a fully retractable wall of glass facing the ocean on the other side. The open kitchen, to your right, features top of the line Miele appliances including a 36’’refrigerator, Master Chef double oven, and glass cooktop with retractable hood. The kitchen is fully equipped with professional grade juicer, blender, Nespresso coffee machine, hotel grade cutlery, and dining ware by Fortessa.

The living area features Imported Balinese furniture and a 65-inch 4k and 3D flat screen TV. Overlooking the grounds & ocean is a sunken large dining area with an enormous teak dining table imported from Bali. The living room and kitchen have a magnificent 25-foot vaulted Balinese ceiling. The living area also features a large powder room and a laundry room.

This living area is flanked by two magnificent master bedroom suites with 20-foot vaulted ceilings. Each suite has a wall of glass with a sweeping view of the ocean. Amenities include 55-inch 4k 3D TV. The ultra-luxury bathrooms feature Caesar stone and Carrara White slab walls and floors, top-of-the-line Hansgrohe Axor fixtures, and stand-alone tubs carved of solid Carrara marble. The bedrooms are furnished with Italian furniture and six-star hotel-quality bedding. These main house bedrooms each include a lower built-in area for lounging or for use as additional sleeping quarters. There is also a rollaway bed available for a 9th guest.

Ananda’s two pavilions are stand-alone master bedroom suites. They feature fully retractable glass curtain walls with sweeping views of the ocean. Each pavilion has a full-size walk-in closet and an ultra-luxury master bath with Caesar stone walls and floors, top of the line luxury Hansgrohe Axor fixtures, and solid marble stand-alone tubs.

Laurie K. from United States recommends this vacation rental.

Gorgeous house, pool and beach. We were often the only people on our beach. 10 minutes from grocery store. Perfect set up for my party of 8. Few things could be tweaked. One of the fan / light remotes affected the lights /fan in the other guest house that was a little maddening for the guests of that cottage. Some of the pool cushions are showing some wear. House managers very helpful with every question before and during arrival. If you need a dark bedroom, bring a sleeping mask. House was very well appointed with plenty of towels, glasses, plates, silverware. Air conditioning worked well. The most tricky thing was figuring out which light switch operated which light.

I loved my stay at Ananda, from the moment you walk in there are breathtaking views everywhere! The house and cabins are spacious and clean, and the beach is honestly probably one of the nicest I’ve ever seen - so white that where the water touches the beach it is almost pink! They also have stand up paddle boards and kayaks which were a lot of fun to take out! I loved walking down the beach to Tilly’s beach bar, and the local bars and restaurants were always so fun and lively! Thanks so much for a great stay :)
