The villa has a million dollar view of Happy Bay and the Caribbean Sea towards Anguilla Island. Yet the spectacular view is not the only draw card of this popular property. Villa Canoua has a very high number of return guests and they do not only come for the unobstructed ocean views on 180 degrees. The villa is peaceful, very secluded, comfortable and cozy.

Unlike the other huge, luxury villas in this exclusive neighborhood, Villa Canoua with 2 bedrooms and 2.5 baths is smaller, yet just the right place for 1-2 couples or families who don't want to spend a fortune. Villa Canoua is located at one of the best spots on the slope of Mt. Choisy/Happy Bay allowing you to take in unobstructed, spectacular views at day and at night!
