Donna Karan's Private Luxury Estate on Parrot Cay: Take a Peek Inside!


Parrot Kay Donna Karan"Parrot Cay brings my favorite things in the world together," fashion designer Donna Karan told Travel & Leisure magazine in October 2007. "It's East meets West. It's everything and nothing, if I can describe it that way. It's a hidden treasure: —the turquoise water, the white, white sand...And it feels completely effortless, but, oh my God, the amount of effort that goes into it behind the scenes."

Few have been invited to take in the breathtaking 360-degree views, the infinity pool lined with black volcanic stone or the personal collection of African and Asian art that adorns the white walls. Until now.

The Sanctuary, Donna Karan's private island estate located on Parrot Cay in the Turks and Caicos sits among the island’s lush vegetation.

Just a few steps away from the white sand beach and with views of the turquoise waters, the house is comprised of a master bedroom/sitting area with 360-degree views. There are three other en-suite bedrooms each with private bath.

There is an infinity pool with a large screened pavilion for lounging, dining and after-dinner movie viewing. Cedar-paneled walls, teak furniture, walnut floors and eclectic pieces from Donna’s travels adorn the house and pavilion.

I'm sorry, but yes, it's all beautiful and luxurious and well, a tad pretentious, but these people have way too much money.

That is beautiful.
I've been looking for patio ideas since I am remodeling my house, but this just makes me feel inadequate. ;)

I managed to get some great outdoor shelves from Screwfix a little

bit ago and they are fantastic! I am able to put

plants on top of or plastic bins of the kids toys as well as placemat

settings for the patio table. Love my Taren.
