About the Property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

Villa La Recompense is a true Caribbean Villa with spacious living areas open to sea breezes. A covered porch and terrace allow for cool places to relax outside during the day. Built of rich Brazilian hardwood, the villa radiates a warm and welcoming spirit.

The 2 european queen bedrooms are in separate bungalows, each with en suite bathroom, allowing privacy for guests. The king bedroom, also with private bathroom is below the main living area of the villa. It opens to its own terrace with a view of the sea. The bedrooms are all air conditioned. There is a half bath with outside shower adjacent to the pool area.

The large, well equipped kitchen opens to the dining room which flows seamlessly to the outdoor dining area and terrace with views of the sea and surrounding hills. The kitchen includes refrigerator with icemaker, 5 burner gas cooktop, oven, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, coffemaker, blender and wine fridge. The outdoor areas are shared with the many sugarbirds and hummingbirds which love to visit. The living room opens to the charming pool with waterfall which sits at the base of a dramatic rocky hillside landscaped with Caribbean flora. Creative lighting enhances this area at night.

The villa is very comfortabley furnished in island style with teak furniture handpicked in Bali.
While it has the flavor of a relaxed Caribbean villa, we have added a few modern conveniences such as wifi to keep you connected, and private electronic gated access to ensure privacy.

Amenities include daily housekeeping service (except Sundays and Holidays), SAT TV, surround sound, Ipod docks, WEBER gas and charcoal grills, AC in bedrooms, private gated access.

This villa may be rented as a 1, 2 or 3 bedroom villa - you will have the entire villa to yourselves regardless of the number of bedrooms rented.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We are from the US, lived in St. Barth for 6 years and then Quebec for 5 years , where our two children who grew up on St. Barth, went to school. We are now happy to have returned to Maryland's beautiful Eastern Shore. We visit St. Barth when we can, but when we are not there, we invite you to enjoy and appreciate our villa as much as we do!

Why the Owner Chose Petit Cul-de-Sac, Windward, Saint Barthélemy:
Petit cul de Sac is a quiet residential area, therefore we have very little traffic which makes this a wonderfully relaxing spot. We love listening to the waves breaking on the reef and enjoying the view of the ocean as the day fades into evening. Petit cul de Sac is one of the few areas on the island which is still quite natural and peaceful.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
As nature lovers we enjoy being able to spend time amidst the tropical gardens scented with jasmin and frangiapani, which are full of bird life. We cook and entertain quite a bit, so we appreciate the large kitchen and expansive sitting and dining areas. The bedrooms are spread out enough so that even when we are there with our now grown children, everyone has plenty of space and privacy. The entire villa exudes Caribbean charm with its rich woods, high ceilings and sea breezes. If walls could talk, this villa would have more than a few stories to tell!! We invite you to come and discover the reward (la recompense) for yourself.
