About the Property

Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 4 baths, sleeps 6 adults, 2-3 children

Tamarind House means different things to the people who have already experienced its beauty and legendary hospitality.

The rare luxury of space and privacy. Room to relax, to breathe, to rejuvenate and dream. Happy memories of drinks and laughter under the tamarind tree. Long white curtains billowing in the breeze. Swimming in the pool under a full moon. Bouganvillea climbing the walls - fuchsia, violet and orange flowers set against a clear blue sky Rum cocktails and fish cakes at sunset.

Tamarind House is located just off the Anse Chastanet Road approximately 1.5 miles from Soufriere and .5 miles from Anse Chastanet Beach. It is a 10 minute walk down to the beach and a 20 minute hike back up the hill. Covering 8850 Sq. Ft. of space, the house is constructed of local stone with exceptionally high 25 foot ceilings and Barbados terracotta tiles throughout. The main house has three bedrooms and bathrooms while the separate Cottage is a master bedroom suite with its own living room, kitchen, dressing area, four poster king size bed and terrace.

The 35 x 15 foot totally private pool is situated below the Cottage and has 1060 sq ft of terrace and shade pavilion around it. The pool edge is open on one side to give uninterrupted views of the Pitons. The house also has a professional size tennis court with a Bioflex surface and of course superb views of the Pitons as you play.

In the main house, a descending staircase leads you into a cool, circular courtyard filled with banana plants and flowers. As you pass through the graceful stone arch doorway, the enormous 2550 sq ft living room stretches away before you and leads to the terrace where the tamarind tree grows up out of the tiles. This fabulous tree provides shade and coolness to the house all through the day. The living room features two seven foot settees and a very large travertine stone coffee table. The round reproduction antique dining table seats 6-8.

The master bedroom has a beautiful king size four poster bed, side tables, hand carved standing cheval mirror and small armoire. There is a walk in closet with a safe, Italian tiled bathroom with shower and double sinks. Open the shower doors and look at the Pitons while bathing! The second bedroom has a queen antique four poster bed, private terrace, Italian tiled bathroom with shower also open to the view. There is a walk in closet and two blue and white Chinese lamps beside the bed. The third bedroom is for children and has two four poster beds, a double and a twin. It looks out onto a private terrace and the courtyard. The Cottage master bedroom suite has three graceful stone arch openings and 25 foot ceilings. Long white curtains at each doorway billow out in the breeze. Two large 7 foot couches with blue and white cushions, a large coffee table and antique tables beside the king size four poster bed make this a wonderfully romantic space. A collection of paintings by St. Kitts artist Kate Spencer are on display here. There is a marble tiled bathroom with shower and a dressing area plus a kitchen with fridge, stove, glasses, plates etc. Exceptionally high quality 100% cotton sheets, and plush towels are standard in all the bedrooms and bathrooms. Each bedroom has a hair dryer provided. Electricity is 220 volts. Staff included six days a week Monday - Saturday for cooking and cleaning. They prepare breakfast, lunch and will leave something prepared for your dinner. New Brinkman 3 burner gas grill/charcoal grill new in 2015 season.Staff come up six days a week , Monday - Saturday, from 9am - 3-pm. Staff must come up at least every other day to clean. No rentals without staff.

Owner info

About the owner: I lived in St. Lucia from the early 1980's until 2011. Tamarind House was a private home and always open to friends and family. It is now open for memorable family gatherings by renting on VRBO. I can answer almost any question you might have about the Soufriere area. And I have a wide circle of people who can help to make your holiday a dream come true.

Why the Owner Chose Mamin, Saint Lucia:
Wonderfully large space, room for everyone to have their own space but be together as well. Fantastic staff who cook fabulous meals.
