Permanence in paradise: Building your luxury home at Oil Nut Bay

Permanence in paradise: Building your luxury home at Oil Nut Bay

The luxury resort and residential community of Oil Nut Bay offers freehold ownership in a setting that is distinctly refined, exceptionally private and consciously preserved...

After a decade-long search for the ideal location to build a luxury, multi-generational family community, the British Virgin Islands (BVI) was selected for its unrivalled physical beauty, political stability, safety and rich, local culture. In a setting of ultimate tranquility, Oil Nut Bay on Virgin Gorda offers its residents and guests proximity to 60 pristine islands and a ten month season to enjoy, with first-class amenities and perpetual trade winds providing the world’s best sailing and relaxation.

There are many benefits to purchasing in the BVI; property continues to hold its value, making it an increasingly attractive location for investors, while easy access by sea or air and modern telecommunication systems are steadily improving. As an owner at Oil Nut Bay, you are additionally investing in the community’s thoughtful and artfully integrated design and state-of-the-art infrastructure, which complements and safeguards the exceptional beauty of the land.

Whether you prefer living footsteps from the white sand beaches or a short stroll to the marina, Oil Nut Bay offers eight unique neighbourhoods with only 88 home sites spread across 300 acres. A low-density real estate development plan designates 50 percent of the land as open space and individual sites range from 0.32 to 17.81 acres.

To match your individual lifestyle, each site allows for residents to design and build their custom home with personalised finishes. They can also purchase a completed turnkey property, built by Victor International and designed by the world’s finest architects and engineers. Each villa is designed in accordance with carefully developed guidelines to preserve green space, ensure privacy from neighbouring villas, enhance sustainability and blend homes into the natural landscape: utilising pod-style building and installing solar arrays to generate a required 4Kw of energy per villa. Those who choose to enter their villas into Oil Nut Bay’s elite villa rental program also receive rental income, along with exceptional villa rental management services.

For individuals that have the intention of purchasing real estate in the British Virgin Islands, the requirements and the process have recently been simplified for the purchaser. Changes made in the last few years allow owners the ability to close in as little as 90 days. A team of professionals then guides homeowners through an architectural review to ensure plans meet Oil Nut Bay’s eco-friendly and high-quality standards. Once approved, the construction team assists with obtaining a building permit through the BVI government. After this final step is complete, home construction averages 18 months or less.

Only accessible by water or air transport, arrive on yacht or boat to the picturesque arrival dock. Air arrivals land at the new helipad, built adjacent to the property’s 93-slip marina. Oil Nut Bay is an ideal haven for families seeking the comfort, safety and seclusion of their own private island plus one-of-a-kind resort amenities and services. The heart of the resort experience begins at the Beach Club, providing an exceptional restaurant, casual poolside dining and bar, and a collection of open-air cabanas surrounding three generational swimming pools, just steps away from the pristine white-sand beach. Guest service members are there to advise and assist in planning daily activities and excursions. Water enthusiasts are steps away from paddle boarding, sailing, glass-bottom kayaking and the best snorkelling the island has to offer, while the resort centre offers tennis courts, pickle-ball courts, a Wellness Studio, as well as the Nut House Kids Club and Nature Centre.

Oil Nut Bay is a refined mix of modern luxuries and pristine beauty that delivers truly exceptional private island living. With its devotion to world-class architecture built in harmony with nature, Oil Nut Bay is set apart from other developments.
