RECOMMENDED BY CONDE NAST TRAVELLER MAGAZINE AS ONE OF THE 20 BEST VILLAS IN THE CARIBBEAN, APRIL 2007.
This is a fantastic holiday villa in a superb position with large swimming pool. An excellent property from the point of privacy and seclusion yet within easy distance of the sea and villages. This is one of the most sought after properties on the island and all our clients have enjoyed wonderful holidays here. Very secluded and romantic and perfect for couples, especially suitable for weddings. One couple who were married at the property have written to us, describing their experience of a lifetime. Also excellent for families as very child-friendly. The house is above THE MILL HOUSE and the two can be rented together to provide accommodation for up to fourteen people, with a 10% discount on the total cost.
Spacious and very attractive open-plan living dining room with numerous double doors leading out on to the surrounding covered veranda, pool terrace and garden. The fully equipped kitchen leads into the living room and there are hardwood floors everywhere, giving the house a rich, warm atmosphere. There is a lovely wide wooden staircase leading up to the first floor. On this floor there is a splendid Master bedroom with King size four poster bed, two sets of double doors going out onto the wide covered veranda, a dressing room and delightful en suite shower room.
Two further charming twin bedrooms share the second shower room. All the bedrooms have doors leading out on to the covered verandah, and on this there are comfortable chairs on which to sit and enjoy the spectacular views east and west along the coastline, and out to the Caribbean sea.
The house has a CD player, Radio, TV, VCR and Satellite TV (over 100 channels including BBC, movies, sport and 3 children's programmes). It is decorated to a high standard and the furnishings are either Caribbean or antique in style, creating a charming and relaxed atmosphere. This is an excellent property and is suitable for adults and children - wonderful for families, but also very private and romantic for couples. There is standard internet access available.
Approached up a long private lane and sweeping drive, this house sits on top of an outcrop of land, overlooking the sea and the surrounding completely unspoilt countryside. It has lovely, mature gardens full of flowering shrubs and climbers, and a feature is the hill behind the house which has a pathway leading from the garden to the top, which can also be lit at night.
There is an excellent swimming pool (5 x 10 metres with a depth of 3 metres) and pool terrace with plenty of outside furniture and pool loungers. Outside shower and pool house, and a gate from the garden that accesses the path leading down to the beach below the house. This is a tidal beach some 120ft down the hillside which has good snorkelling but is suitable for experienced swimmers only. The bay is beautiful and normally completely deserted.
One of the best aspects of this property is that the pool is really close to the house - particularly nice for swimming at night! It is also extremely private and not overlooked at all.
Wonderful staff consisting of the caretaker who is resident in a house half-way down the drive and looks after the house, pool and grounds and is on hand to assist guests. He also meets guest at the airport on their arrival and welcomes them to the house. Then there is Marillia, the housekeeper and Jean the cook, who are available daily except Sundays, normally from 9:30am - 2pm and Jean, who is an excellent cook can prepare breakfast, lunch and dinner for the week. This is booked and paid for in advance.
