About the Property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

A true representation of its name, The Fortress stands proudly amongst the lush green foliage in the heart of Cap-Estate. This pair of adjoining but separate luxury villas, represents a unique vacation for any person or family looking for a peaceful, tranquil, relaxing, rejuvenating yet modern vacationing abode.

The Fortress boasts one of the most unique views of St. Lucia. From the balcony one can enjoy a fresh cup of coffee along with the fabulous sunrise over the Atlantic and on an evening from the same spot, take in the stupendous sunset in the west.

For a spectacular view even closer to home, one can gaze at the glistening waters of the private pool surrounded by exotic, wide-branched palm trees. Other local vegetation is grown in the garden surrounding the apartments such as mango, cherry, ripe banana, tomato, guava, and lime trees. Exquisite flowers can also be found in the garden such as roses, pink, white, purple and orange bougainvillea, and hibiscus to name a few.


The larger villa consists of two bedrooms and two bathrooms(including one Jacuzzi). This villa also has a spacious, partly circular, well ventilated and lit kitchen facing the Atlantic Ocean on the East. Both entrances/exits lead to a ‘crescent moon’ balcony facing the Caribbean Sea on the West.

The family room and dining room are served by an interior wooden bar.

Both bedrooms are air conditioned and include cable television and FM/Alarm clock radio whilst the bigger of the two bedrooms has a convenient work desk.


The balcony is a unique semi circular, common structure of the villas and is separated by an intricately designed PVC arrangement adorned with natural plants; this see-thru separation allows viewing of both the Atlantic and Caribbean Sea.

The smaller villa has a similar design but facing west to towards the Caribbean Sea. Its family room is separated from the dining area by beautiful wooden banisters, with both the family room and single bedroom being air conditioned for further comfort. This villa is adjacent to the common outside private pool.

The pool is uniquely situated for viewing both oceans to the west and east, and has a terrace extension for sun bathing or just enjoying the surrounding foliage and Fortress plants and fruit trees.

Both villas are tiled and are furnished with beautiful, straw woven furniture, modern varnished cupboards, and simple yet fully secured PVC rectangular windows. Both villas have laundry rooms and everything else necessary for a comfortable vacation.
