Zabuco Villas

1 or 2 bed, 1 or 2 bath, utmost seclusion with panoramic ocean views (Up to 4,083 total indoor/outdoor sq ft)

Zabuco Villa is where the dream of Secret Bay began. The original Peninsula Zabuco Villa is built on the exact spot at the end of the promontory where proprietor Gregor Nassief and wife Sandra Vivas planned to build their dream home. The iconic design, gifted to the couple by Sandra’s father, renowned Latin American architect, Fruto Vivas, captures the resort’s inherent aura of romance and provides the ultimate escape for those in love; fittingly voted the third sexiest bedroom in the world by the Smith Awards.


Thoughtfully designed as private, freestanding sanctuaries to live in harmony with nature, the Zabuco Villas feature four distinct floorplans, offering breathtaking, panoramic views over the mountain peaks of Dominica and the sparkling Caribbean Sea. Spectacularly situated at the farthest points on Secret Bay’s twin promontories, both over 200 feet above sea level, each Zabuco Villa is carefully sited for ultimate seclusion and privacy.
