Tucked into the edge of a cove on Sapodilla Beach, the villa sits behind a gate just a few minutes drive from Grace Bay. The fact that it sits on the beach makes the 7-bedroom La Koubba a good bet for families with young children as it isn't dangerous entering the sea.
The curvaceous adobe Moroccan style beachfront home also has a clever layout that allows multiple families to holiday together in privacy -- living quarters are separated at different ends of the 8,000-square-foot mansion. The Great Room, with its two-story high ceilings and multiple sitting areas, is our favorite indoor area in the home. Outside there is a swimming pool and plenty of space to lounge and BBQ. And then there is the beach. It is reached through a curved adobe gate that can be locked for safety. This beach is great for kids. The clear green water is shallow and warm, and you can wade out around 20 feet before reaching your waist. Around the cove, a pier with steps offers direct access to slightly deeper water for snorkeling and proper swims.
