Mature tropical forest trees surround this rambling styled lodge which has proven itself to be engineered to resist even the strongest of hurricane-force winds of Irma in 2017. While other homes lost their roofs and really took a beating, Indigo Plantation House stood unwavering with its amazing concrete and steel structures, its South American hardwoods and heavy gauged galvanized roof.
This breezy ridge top home was designed by architect, John Malick and engineered by Ricky Dawson; who both ensured that the home was built to Florida Dade Country Building Code’s, which nowadays subsequent buyers would treasure when purchasing their retirement Caribbean home.
Lovely breezes continually wind their way through each well-ventilated rooms designed intentionally with large screened windows and doors that help to bring the outside in. Every homeowner within the Indigo Plantation Estate owns a private dock in the well-protected marina below. Tennis courts, haul out storage facilities, restroom, small library/meeting room, freshwater cisterns, davits to pull a boat out, boat ramp and three communal beaches are all part of the offer in this incredible outer island retreat.

The boating playground around Great Camonoe is amazing. It’s about a 20-30 minute boat ride to Cooper, The Baths, Anegada, Jost and Norman islands and the Indians for beach bars and snorkeling outings. Kayaks are stored down in the boat basin, along with the snorkel and dive gear. The current owners also offer a Hobie Wave vessel down in the Boat Basin that loves to cruise around the surrounding islands. Indigo Plantation House remains a perfect spot for a locally made brew, a BBQ and a good laugh with warm friends in one of Nature’s Little Secrets.
The history of the British Virgin Islands (BVI) is the stuff of epic tales. Norman Island, at the southern tip of the chain, is said to be the setting for Robert Louis Stevenson’s “Treasure Island.” Nearby caves once hid riches plundered by pirates. The ocean floor is a graveyard for sunken ships.
