Our (mini) banana plantation at Serenity Villa in the Turks & Caicos Islands is starting to take off, we should have more bananas than we can handle in a few short weeks…

A friend of ours sent in this great aerial shot of Swede Hill House this summer, the property looks great from the air, especially at this time of year…

We’ve just wrapped up our first photoshoot at Serenity Villa in the Turks & Caicos Islands. I’ve been incredibly lucky to work with some really talented photographers over the years and Steve Passmore of Provo Pictures is no exception.

We posted about the AV instal at the Serenity project back in May of last year, fast forward a few months and the AV is now all up and running, all the audio visual components are remote located in one central hub in the living room in a closet we affectionately call ‘the Tardis’ (Dr Who fans will understand the reference).

At the time our techs from RSAVD were less than impressed when I showed them the small locker that they had to work with, but somehow they managed to get 10 lbs of sugar into a 5 lb bag. The custom rack pulls out on a track for service and houses several amplifiers, Crestron controllers, Kaleidescape Media Server, Lutron lighting, Satellite TV receivers… you name it, it’s in there. The space is cooled by a dedicated AC unit, once the door is closed the locker disappears and all that technology hums away in the background.

We pushed the envelope for a remote island instal on this job, the house boasts a home theatre, motorized blinds throughout, two TV art lifts, a killer sound system and underwater speakers. Our architects told us ‘all this technology wasn’t advisable‘, that we ‘must be mad‘… but that’s never stopped us before!

We are delighted to announce that Serenity Villa has been completed, after just six months of planning and one year of construction we finally crossed the finished line – just in time for Christmas.

A huge thank you to our fabulous TCI team, Coast Architects, Coxco Construction, RSAVD, BQCS who made this all possible. I can safely say, I’ve never had the good fortune to work with such a talented and hardworking team. You’ve made this a truly memorable experience.
