At Wali Nikiti, an organic open-air home on Scrub Island in the British Virgin Islands, indoor and outdoor living is one and the same.

Wali Nikiti is the combination of two Aborigine words. Wali means hut or shelter; nikiti means bare, as in minimal. But, as one guest puts it, "The result is maximum wow!"
In fact, guests are often so taken by the sheer magnitude of the beams and the all-around ocean views that they don't immediately realize that the home has no windows or exterior walls.
