GRAND & GORGEOUS TAMARIND HOUSE

Soufriere Villa Rental Photos and Description

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 five burner gas stainless steel BBQ grill new for 2011 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.

WHAT DREAMS ARE MADE OF

We just arrived home from our amazing week at tamarind house and wanted to let everyone know how amazingly special this place is -- the house is perfectly situated with the most spectacular views from every room and location in the house. The house is comfortable, open and really well designed so there was always a place for all to gather, or for you to go off and be alone. What makes this perfect house a real home is the staff, cheryl and ann and paul -- from the moment you enter, you are cared for -- the ladies are incredible cooks and keep a very clean house, and, while they are there for several hours a day, they are in no way intrusive. We had them shop for us and make amazing meals -- better than you will get at most places in the area, so we never really left the compound!! no need really! We had the most AMAZING massages from Maura (who came up to the house several days) and got some expert tennis lessons from Vernon -- both reasonably priced for the quality of their work. We have travelled around the world and never has there been a villa that we have flat out said "we need to come here every year because it is that special" -- tamarind house is that villa -- we will be booking every year from now on!!

Spoiled now for any other villa. As a design person I was envious of all of the beautiful furniture and paintings. The magnificent view and sunsets enhance all experiences.
Cheryl and Anne did a wonderful job of making amazing meals day after day. Spoiled again!
After 2 months of snow on the ground and more snow awaiting us, this was the perfect "spa" break. Thank you so much for your generosity.

Family vacation for 7 people(21-80).Listing very accurate,property spotless.Cost is very reasonable and far less than the island resorts.The pictures don't do it justice,on arrival;your stress melts away.Beautiful view,comfortable furniture and wonderful food.The help make Tamarind House a home,Ann and Cheryl were amazing.The house was always spotless,the food healthy/delicious.Fresh squeezed juice with every meal, homemade ice-cream each evening a wow chocolate cake.They are fantastic,never imposing and friendly.Ann always surprised us with each dish.Let her do her thing, no regrets.The girls shopped, a good decision.We were very well taken care of. My recommendations:When you receive the grocery list,add meat/foods for Mon/Tuesday.The girls are off on Sun & shop on Tues for the next meals. Let them shop, very tricky to do.They prepared dinner for each evening.Do not rent a car-the drivers(Popo and James)are experts,roads are tricky and cost reasonable, negotiate price first.Rental would be a headache.You can get anywhere and they are knowledgeable regarding St Lucia.There is a phone/internet in the house,resorts don't have either.Anse Chastanet,down the hill from Tamarind,is not worth the prices they charge. Tamarind is a luxury private resort.We walked down to the beach,20 min. but unless you are doing water activities, no need.Walking to town,be prepared for a climb back,doable. My son met with a trainer and tennis coach, both worthwhile.We did a few local attractions but in the end, staying at Tamarind, reading and relaxing, swimming in the pool and enjoying the views was worth every minute and penny.Can't wait to go back, just a wonderful relaxing vacation.There is a DVD player and enjoyed some movies/family time.Highly recommend this for a family reunion,there is a house next door that can accommodate 5 more.The piton climb is a challenge if your fit, go for it.The botanical gardens were a lovely walk and my 80 year old mom really enjoyed it, we all did.From there, we went to the mud bath and really had fun,mom was able to sit and enjoy the site.We went to one restaurant on Sunday evening,Orlando's. He is charming and the food was fantastic.On Friday we went to the local fish fry several towns away. The roads are bad and the island is poor, I would not suggest this unless you need a taste of reality.All the locals in Soufriere are lovely and hospitable,very safe and Paul was a wonderful caretaker.Just a perfect, beautiful spot.

Nancy...thank you for allowing us into this beautiful home...making our family vacation like no other! When my husband showed me the video of Tamarind House online I thought that there was no way it could be that beautiful...I WAS WRONG and each ay we took in the view, just to appreciate everything about it..Ann and Cheryl and Paul are what made this week even more special. Ann and Cheryl have gone above and beyond and I was trying to take note of everything they cooked for us...my daughter took pictures of many of the meals! We leave with incredible memories (including conquering the Pitons!) (and homemade everything!!) and are eternally grateful for the hospitality and opening up this beautiful home to us. Best wishes to you Nancy and Ann, Cheryl and Paul

What a fantastic and beautiful villa - views amazing and every luxury catered for. A home that has been built with every thought and care considered = we feel privileged to have been able to experience staying here. Cheryl and Ann have spoilt us rotten with fabulous meals - we quickly realised that the feast at home was better than any restaurant around. They also catered for my picky children - 7 & 3 and made them feel welcome.
Thank you so much for a really relaxing wonderful holiday - a truly memorable an special time.
