Bright and airy tropical villa with spacious living quarters and stunning Caribbean Sea views.
Located on a hill, the spacious Wild Orchid offers a 270-degree view of the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. It is situated at one of the northernmost points of St. Lucia, and provides wide-ranging views of the northwest coast, the National Park of Pigeon Island, the French island of Martinique, and the majestic Mount Gimie. At Wild Orchid, you can hear the ocean and see everything from cruise ships to the local fishing boats sailing in and out of these waters. Nighttime views from this Villa are magnificent as the south coast becomes aglow and Martinique shimmers in the distance.
This villa was built to capture St. Lucia's famous trade winds; the house is very open and utilizes numerous architectural elements of traditional Caribbean villas. Air-conditioning, ceiling fans, and traditional netting are in each of the three oversized, open bedrooms. The first floor has two bedrooms, both of which have pool views. The end bedroom has two twin beds and a daybed. The second bedroom has two twin beds. Each bedroom includes an ensuite bathroom with a shower. The master bedroom encompasses the entire second floor. The master suite is beautifully furnished and features a king-size bed. It also has a unique shower room with a view of the mountains. There are two patios - the larger one has a view of St. Lucia's southern coast and beaches while the smaller balcony provides ocean views and the island of Martinique.
A covered veranda runs the length of the house, and includes a seating area along with an outdoor dining area. The extra large swimming pool is encircled by a tiled deck, and is well-equipped with loungers and umbrellas inviting you to enjoy the sun.
Inside, you will find a spacious "great room" with vaulted ceilings (the beams were obtained from St. Lucia Forestry), a big screen TV, cable television, DVD and Bose Surround-Sound system. Adjacent to this is a formal dining room. A large, modern, fully equipped kitchen complete with an outside covered barbeque patio invites you to enjoy a variety of dining experiences. Wild Orchid is fully landscaped, and contains mature gardens with a wide variety of tropical plants and flowers. As a result, it has become a haven for many species of butterflies and wild birds. You will be able to see a variety of them and observe their habits as well. The gardener/groundskeeper is very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna and would be happy to familiarize you with the tropical plants and birds.
Bedrooms 4 and 5 are located in a separate apartment.
Within walking distance of Wild Orchid is a secluded beach and the Le Sport Resort and Body Holiday Spa. Here you can enjoy the ocean and go snorkeling. You can also indulge yourself in pampering body treatments or partake of a variety of exercise and fitness facilities (partial or whole day passes can be purchased).
