Dream Vacation Home
Feast your eyes on one of the priciest properties for sale in the Caribbean at $25 million. Nestled on 132 oceanfront acres at Half Moon Bay Antigua—an ultra-luxury resort and residential development featuring 3,200 feet of white coral sand, along with access to on-site amenities including a biodynamic farm, cocktail lounge and spa—the Mellon Estate previously was owned by philanthropist Rachel “Bunny” Lambert Mellon and now is on the market for the first time in 50-plus years.
As part of the purchase price, the buyer will enjoy the opportunity to use the Dutch design firm Studio Piet Boon to create a bespoke residence on the 3-acre parcel of land. “The Mellon estate will truly be one of the greatest homes in the world, starting atop a cliff and cascading down to vast ocean views,” says Half Moon Bay Antigua CEO William Anderson. “It’s unlike anything in the Caribbean.

A Legend’s Links
Be on the lookout for the first Tiger Woods-designed golf course on Oahu’s Leeward Coast, coming soon to the 644-acre, mixed-used Mākaha Valley Resort development. One of two layouts at the property commissioned by Toronto-based golfing network Pacific Links International, Woods’ TGR Design will execute the Mākaha North Course, while Gil Hanse (creator of Rio de Janeiro’s Olympic Course) will craft the Mākaha South Course. Expect the North Course to include links set high atop the Pacific amid lush, rolling terrain beneath the Waianae Mountain Range, where players will encounter vast fairways dotted with bunkers.
According to a statement by Woods: “The cathedral-like setting of the property is framed with big ocean views to the west and towering mountains to the east. We are designing a golf course that will take advantage of this spectacular setting, yet still be fun and playable for golfers of all abilities.”
