About the Property

Villa, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8-9)

If you missed drinking rum with Hemmingway in Key West or Cuba, you can still grab a bit of that adventure in this West Indian home. Old Caribbean charm with all the modern amenities. Great for a group or a couple. Privacy for everyone, fantastic ocean and down island views. UNFORGETABLE VACATION. Close to the best beaches. Call us directly, discounts may apply. 334. 332. 4055.

Callaloo was carefully built to preserve old West Indies design and ambiance. Each bedroom is a separate cottage surrounded by porches, decks, patios and open air baths and showers.

It is filled with authentic Caribbean antiques that are rugged, no need to worry about being careful. Couches, chairs, and the entire place work well with wet bathing suits and rum.

This is the perfect honeymoon place, romantic, and private, yet it is great for a group. Everyone will have privacy: Moonlight Cottage, Shell Cottage,Pineapple Cottage and a sleeping loft in the main house with a 4th bath.

The bathrooms were copied from resort cottages in Bali. Shower under the stars or the sun. Bake in the West Indian oven. Quickly smoke roasts, turkey, vegetables using aromatic tropical woods.

What Callaloo offers that you will not find in other villas:
Charming antiques, outdoor bathrooms, totally open cottages, romantic bed nets, total privacy, West Indian oven, two entry roads (one is a driving adventure and the other is for little old ladies; (I’m an older gal, but I prefer driving the adventure road). Center island location gives proximity to all the best beaches, East end beaches, Salt Pond, south shore bays. 600 ft. elevation insures cool breezes.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1994

About: I am a retired yacht designer who has sailed to most of the Caribbean Islands. St. John is the best. My daughter Marcia is the booking manager. You will enjoy talking to her and get great planning tips if you need help, even if you don't book our villa. For 15 years I collected photos of every charming West Indian cottage to design my own West Indian tin-roof 'shack'. I wanted a place for good times and parties; for my friends and family. Rather than a large American house such as you find in Florida or Hawaii, I wanted it to look truly Island. Furnishings were collected for years and stored. I designed the house and supervised the construction. Most of all I have enjoyed the visitors and parties that are always at CALLALOO. You and your group will fall in love with this unique vacation experience.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
No other villa has a West Indian oven and the open design that Callaloo has. Sugar birds fly through the main house and tree frogs sing to you at night.
