Villa Mani, Perched on a 40-foot ridge above a serene cove with white-sand beach protected by a finger peninsula, is neighbor to an estate once owned by the iconic rock legend Prince on exclusive Royal Palm Island.
Designed in a classic Riviera style by international award-winning architect Ron Shaw, the sprawling villa offers nine bedrooms, eight baths, two kitchens, and five bars. The quintessential entertainment venue, many have mistaken Villa Mani for the Prince Estate. Entering through double solid-wood doors, visitors are immediately greeted with the gorgeous colors of the south shore straight ahead. The “dancing dolphins” glass sculpture that grace this room is the beginning of a three-level infinity-edge pool. Principle spaces include a great room with 20’ soaring ceilings, the library with over 400 first-edition leather-bound books, a separate media room, an ornate bar and kitchen, and the formal dining room with original frescoed ceiling mural. A full bedroom with ensuite bathroom completes the main house.
A master suite on the eastern side adorned with double chandeliers and 180-degree ocean views features his-and-her ensuite bathrooms, outdoor shower, private deck, a two-story dressing room, and a private walkway to the beach. The westerly side of Villa Mani hosts the sunset wing, which boasts three bedrooms including an ocean view suite, a red loft bunk room, blue loft bunk room, full kitchen, living room, and an expansive deck that can be used for yoga or a driving range. A winding staircase leads to the observation tower with unobstructed 360-degree views, a bedroom, and ensuite bathroom. The tower has its very own rooftop bar offering loungers for comfortable reading or an afternoon nap.
The three-level pool cascades down into a deeper pool with a luncheon swim-up bar and in-water chaise lounges overlooking the ocean. A second tiki hut on the beach includes a sports pavilion complete with a ping pong table and other sporting equipment provided for enjoying the beautiful stretch of white sandy beach with 350-foot deep water dock.
