About the Property

Four Bedrooms, 2 King, 2 Queen, 3 Bathrooms en-suite, additional 4th Bathroom

Villa Zandoli and Ti Zan (Cottage). The closest villa to ST LUCIA JAZZ FESTIVAL!! Walk to JAZZ!

(CHECK OUT OUR SUMMER SPECIAL JUNE 01 - SEPTEMBER 01: STAY 7 DAYS PAY FOR 6!!! Our quote will be adjusted before payment)
The name 'Zandoli' means 'lizard' in the local French based creole spoken by the bi-lingual islanders on the beautiful island of St Lucia. This exotic house with its sensuous style of easy luxury and separate cottage - Ti Zan - set on an acre of hillside two minutes walk from the beach, combines the best of Caribbean architecture with a hint of the East, to create a villa of exceptional tropical flair, character and ambiance. With its typical West Indian woodwork, hand made Demerra and louvered windows, vaulted Indonesian style wooden shingled roofs, organic mix of natural stone, marble, wood and glass, burnt orange exterior, outdoor showers, stone and boulder enclosed pool set in lush gardens, and beautiful art collection, this stylish home provides a great location for an exceptional Caribbean villa experience.

Located at Becune Point, Cap Estate, Zandoli overlooks Rodney Bay and Pigeon island and offers offers dramatic, 180 degree, views of the Caribbean Sea. Nestled on a hilltop, Zandoli is a 2 minute walk to St Lucia's most famous beach, and 5 minute walk to Pigeon island, a Historic Park with exotic ruins, home to St Lucia's famous Jazz Festival. Zandoli is 5 minutes away from the village of Gros Islet, famous for its Friday night street fish and music 'jump ups', and the heart of the Tourism Industry, Rodney Bay Village and Marina with their many restaurants and music spots. Fitness, fishing, sailing, golfing are all within easy reach.

The main house is designed around three pavilions on different levels, linked by enclosed bridges framing dramatic views. The second and third pavilions, flanking the main pavilion on either side, accommodate two equally appointed spacious (320 and 300 square feet respectively) Master Bedroom suites with unique, king sized, four poster Balinese bamboo beds. Bedroom number 3, located at garden level, has its own private patio onto the garden, with a queen size bed with oriental bed-head, unique Mexican antique furnishings and bathroom en-suite. Bedroom four features a queen size Balinese bamboo bed, and Indonesian furniture. This opens onto the pool deck and garden. Each bedroom opens onto exquisite sea views and private patio leading to pool and garden areas.

Master Bedroom Suites (1&2) feature large, specialty river stone, tumbled marble and slate tiled bath areas with outdoor showers featuring 12' wide shower 'rain heads', as well as bath tubs. Outdoor showers are ideal for enjoying the romance of showering under the tropical moonlight and stars! Bathrooms 3 & 4 are equipped with showers, and have their own special atmosphere.

The handmade wooden door of the main pavilion opens onto a 700 square foot marble tiled sitting and dining area capturing magnificent panoramas of the Caribbean Sea and Pigeon Island. This opens directly onto spacious covered decks overlooking the ocean, perfect for dining, listening to the surf, or simply absorbing the beauty of the surrounding landscape. A modern kitchen with rustic ambiance opens directly onto the main deck. A large sunny room capturing spectacular views with TV (and Cable) and overstuffed Indonesian bamboo sofas is located at garden level in the main pavilion, and opens onto a rustic stone titled pool patio featuring a wet bar and swimming pool surrounded by sun deck framed by large boulders, colorful gardens and dramatic ocean vistas; 'a wonderful place' - as one guest remarks - 'to sip Francesca's (the housekeeper's) wonderful run punch and watch the spectacular sunset!' The villa is accessed by road, a short section of which (approximately 3 minutes) is unpaved - causing our guests to say that it puts them immediately in the mood for 'Island Life". We usually recommend that our guests opt for an SUV type vehicle if they are interested in renting given that it provides superb access to off-the-beaten track gems in St Lucia.

Zandoli has been featured on Better Homes & Gardens TV show (2003); Elegant Resorts of Europe (2004) and Island Life TV Show (2005)

Owner info

About the owner: I built my home Zandoli, and cottage Ti Zan 12 years ago, on a site which I had waited to be put on the market for as long as I can remember - because of its simply stunning, panoramic views.

Why the Owner Chose Cap Estate, St Lucia:
The villa is close to everything - a 5 minute car ride to shopping, banks, restaurants, live music, and within walking distance to the beach - yet an oasis of tranquility to retreat too, incredibly private, intimate and romantic - with arguably one of the most stunning views on island! It has been a great spot for not only couples, friends and but families wanting a spacious well appointed villa, with awesome views providing a home away from home in which to enjoy each others company.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
I fell in love with this site years ago because of its proximity by foot to the island's most fabulous beaches, places of interest such as Pigeon island's unique cultural heritage, historic forts and stunning views, the rustic village of Gros Islet - allowing guests to explore local life and cuisine all within a very small radius - but more than anything else, the incredible quality of its views. Many of our guests claim the villa to be more beautiful than its photos.
