Cap Estate Villa Rental Photos and Description

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!

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.

The main house is designed around three pavilions on different levels, linked by enclosed bridges framing dramatic views.

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

Zandoli = Heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 22, 2014
  • Stayed: Feb 2014
The villa is beautiful, well taken care of and in a great location. It is perched on a hill side facing Pigeon Island where you have a view of beautiful blue water, beaches and the bay to the south. I cannot tell you how much time we spent sitting on the deck looking out towards Pigeon Island and listening to the waves. It was a great way to begin and end every day of the vacation. The pool is really nice when you get hot and there is a grill and bar downstairs to enjoy your time around the pool area. The two main bedrooms are large and the bathrooms have great open air showers. The other bedrooms are good size as well and have their own bath rooms. There are two living areas to use if you want to relax indoors but they both open wide to the outdoors. The housekeeper, Diane a.k.a. Velda, is really friendly and took great care of the house during our stay and was really helpful if we had any questions.
Below are a few items for future renters to consider. Some of these are duplicates from other reviews but very valid. These are not complaints but if you know these up front you’ll have a perfect vacation.
1. The road to the villa is a little rough so I recommend using a SUV although it is passable by car or van. If you do a lot of driving the path becomes tedious to drive multiple times every day but the view makes it all worthwhile.
2. The villa is not air conditioned and for travelers like myself that are used to AC it can be hot at times but my fix was to jump in the pool or sit on the deck and enjoy the breeze. While sleeping… keep the fans pointed on you and you’ll be comfortable.
3. Bugs…This is an open air villa so use bug spray and the mosquito nets. The book in the villa shares tips and was a great resource. Keep in mind much of the island is a rain forest so there are going to be bugs and if you use insect repellant you will be just fine.
4. The internet connection is a single ethernet cord but honestly I recommend that you don’t waste your time on a computer. I actually stayed disconnected from both the internet and cell phone and it was one of the best vacations I have had in years!

The villa is close to Rodney Bay which offers restaurants, shopping, a grocery store, fresh fruits and veggies from local farmers and a casino. If you are willing to drive you can experience the entire island from Zandoli. St. Lucia and Zandoli are close to heaven on earth. Happy travels!

Absolutely The Most Beautiful Villa!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 8, 2014
  • Stayed: Jan 2014
Dear Len,

We were so fortunate to be able to stay at your beautiful Villa Zandoli at the beginning of February. What a marvelous oasis you have created! The villa and grounds are absolutely magnificent, the view out to Pigeon Island is gorgeous and Velda took such care to make sure that our stay was all that we could wish for!

We spent a lot of time on the main balcony just taking in the view. We never turned on the TV and didn’t miss it a bit – the views over the bay and out to Pigeon Island are much more interesting! We watched several large sailing ships that were anchored for the weekend, the little lizards, and a variety of birds, including the cute and friendly black and yellow bananaquits just outside of our bedroom. We spent many relaxing hours by the pool as well. A bit of sun, a dip in the pool, then start all over again! We walked down the hill and out to Pigeon Island and the beach. Also took a sunset cruise from Rodney Bay and Villa Zandoli looks just as breathtaking from the water. We taxi’d into Gros Islet for dinner on Friday night and stayed for the jump-up. Lots of fun! We also went into Castries to shop at the market. By prior agreement, we purchased some fresh fish at the market and Velda cooked a marvelous dinner for us. We ate local cuisine every night and loved it! Flavors of the Grill and Golden Taste in Gros Islet were our favorites. We just found plantain and dasheen at our market at home in Ohio and want to try to re-create some of the dishes we tried (Velda gave us some tips) but it won’t be the same as being in St. Lucia.

Thank you for sharing Villa Zandoli with us. Our lives are all the richer for the experience. We are having record breaking amounts of snow and frigid temperatures here in Ohio and we are already pining for sunny St. Lucia!

We wish you all the best in your new venture.

Laura, Jim, Anne & Frank

Dear Len

We came back today and already feel homesick for your beautiful house that hosted us. We want to thank you for having made available a memorable stay and a person (Velda) so kind and good. I hope to have occasion to return to such a beautiful place.

Thanks for everything

THE VIEW BLEW US AWAY

  • Submitted: Aug 25, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
Dear Len,

It is hard to believe it has been nearly a month since our stay at Villa Zandoli. The house and the view blew us all away. We were treated with a rainbow across Pigeon Island the first morning of our stay and many splendid days with good weather to follow. My grandmother, who is handicapped, enjoyed the simplicity of sitting on the deck day after day and taking in the view and the visiting birds. We had our first dance after our wedding on the pool patio with the setting sun in the background. It was everything we had hoped for in a vacation and wedding destination. Thank you for sharing your beautiful house with us!

I have also attached a few personal pictures from the villa: one of the rainbow, and two of our wedding day. We will have so many memories for years to come of our time at Zandolli with our friend and family!

A modern kitchen with rustic ambiance opens directly onto the main deck. A large sunny room capturing spectacular views with TV (and Cablevision) 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!'
