Mary Ann's Tropical Building Page

This is the web site for the three villas that I built on Anguilla and the villa that I am renovating in St Barts (see Azu Villa Renovation Page), plus tropical construction tips and resources as well. These construction projects started in 1997, although land acquisition and architectural planning started in 1995. Every stage of the construction is recorded here.

We rent the villa in St Barts and the guest cottage in Anguilla (La Vanda) and the villa at the top of the Anguilla property (Mimosa), but we keep the beachfront house and pool for our own use. And we have created a name and web page for the overall completed property: Bellamare

For details on the main Anguilla beachfront house, visit the Residence Construction Page.

For the technology center, visit the "Clubhouse" Construction Page.

And finally, for the guest cottage, our first attempt at construction on Anguilla, visit the La Vanda Construction Page.

More Finishing Details.

arched garden doors

The complex has walled gardens in many corners and off two of the bathrooms. This garden wall has arched doors made on site.

arched shutters

Custom hurricane shutters for the louvered windows, since the wooden louvers aren't really storm proof. The triangular windows at the top are filled in with "unbreakable" Lexan instead of glass.

generator building

The generator buillding, up by the road, with more turquoise shutters!

pump building

The pump building is as far away from the swimming pool and the house as feasible, which is about 50 feet, to keep the motor noise down. This also houses the power distribution for the main house. Yes, it is has a low doorway.

Pool Gets Planters, Seats and Steps.


The swiming pool has built-in planters at four outside corners (the pool is L-shaped and has more corners). These planters will probably contain small palm trees. Between these two planters will be a bench seat with jets and sloped backrests.


Steps to enter the pool taking shape. Notice the rounded planter.
