Timbuktu by the Sea brings the exoticism of Asian and African destinations to the shores of the Caribbean. Beautiful furnishings, decorative elements, and features call to mind excursions through some of the most memorable cities in the world.

The self-contained and well-maintained gardens and driveway bring guests to the large carved double entrance doors.

In addition to this lovely area are other outdoor dining tables; one on the terrace, one by the barbecue, and another beneath the shaded gazebo. Guests will love finding their happy place to enjoy meals and snacks throughout their vacation.

There are double sea kayaks, snorkels, life vests, and boogie boards for the brave outdoor warriors to take you out into the blue. The Villa has a jetty where you can swim or snorkel.
