Cap Estate villa description

The 3 -winged villa, with 5.000 square feet of covered area on 5 acres of fully fenced and gated land, is situated on the very top of a hill above “Anse Galet” enjoying 360 degrees panoramic views – and the trade-winds (which also gives the added advantage of few mosquitoes and no sand flies!). It is surrounded by partly landscaped garden, but mostly by native Cap Estate vegetation. We cut down as little as possible, bearing in mind that the cutting takes a few hours – growing takes years or even centuries. We hope you’ll explore the grounds – there is much to discover.

Our gardener, Lawrence, looks after the many different fruit trees on the property : papaya, mango, pineapple, coconut as well as the bees which produce sweet Cap Pavilion honey. The natural setting attracts a variety of wildlife including hummingbirds, geckos and neon caterpillars, who leave their cocoon as enormous butterflies...

We built the house in 1988 as a home-away-from home and not as a holiday home per se. We took inspiration from Oliver Messel’s old designs on Barbados and Mustique. The floors and columns are coral rendered and the woodwork is decorated in his signature “Mustique Green”. In the drive in front of the house stands an old sugar pot befitting the plantation house style. The house is built around a central courtyard and we placed the pool on a lower level, out of sight. (Families with small children should be aware of this, as it does call for vigilance, we know as we had 6 of them growing up with the house. But there are 40 slowly descending steps down to the pool, time enough to catch them...). The house is furnished with an eclectic mix of objects from around the world, from places we have lived; it is part of our lives – and we are happy to share it with you.

We really like our staff and we hope you do too. Let Sandrine cook a variety of local and international dishes, bake cakes and produce fresh juices. Ask Cecil, (Sandrine’s husband with own car) who takes care of the house and pool, to do your shopping if you do not enjoy the daily hustle and bustle of filling the fridge...Let Marcella (8:00am – 3:00p.m.) take care of the cleaning and laundering while you relax : go snorkelling (equipment in house), discover “Secret Beach” (no, we won’t tell you where it is !), play golf (golf club a few minutes drive), tennis (Racquet Club 5 minutes drive), squash (10 minutes drive), go swimming in the sea (closest beach 5 minutes drive), or explore the island by road or by sea... the choice is yours.

                      Why Cap Estate:
                      St Lucia is a perfect holiday destination - easy to get to, safe and friendly, beautiful and varied. Cap Estate offers the best of St Lucia - great beaches, a wide range of sports (golf, windsurfing and kite surfing are all nearby), dramatic scenery and easy access to the restaurants and shopping of Rodney Bay. It feels more secluded than the main tourist strip but you can easily get into the heart of things if you want to... though we found that we often just enjoyed the house and all it has to offer. The house itself is built on top of a knoll on the north tip of the island which not only gives it 360 degree views, but also natural air conditioning in the form of the trade winds (although there is air conditioning in the rooms that might need it.)

                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                      The live in staff at the house ensure you can 'have it your way'. They are available 7 days a week and will make sure that you can sit back and relax if that is what you want to do, but you can also choose to take a more active role in the shopping and exploring the island. The house is ideal for groups or families of 6-8 people but can accommodate 11 people if a number of these are children.
