HUMMINGBIRD VILLA-ROMANTIC HILLSIDE VILLA WITH GREAT VIEWS

Cap Estate Villa Rental Photos and Description

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

This is a Caribbean style three bedroom, three bathroom house tastefully renovated and refurbished in 1999 and 2009. The villa enjoys a hillside site with spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea and Rodney Bay, as well as wonderful breezes from the Atlantic Ocean.

There is an open-plan kitchen, sitting/dining area. The kitchen has louver shutters opening to the view of the Caribbean Sea. The kitchen has granite counter tops with all new appliances. The cabinet doors are made of Caribbean cane keeping the Caribbean style of the villa. The living/dining area, with two ceiling fans, has louver doors opening onto a series of patios, all of which are built of natural wood and are situated around and within a flamboyant tree giving the feeling of a 'treehouse' and creating a most attractive and relaxing atmosphere. On the main patio there is a table for six people, a hammock and extra chairs for watching the sunset. The views are lovely of the Caribbean Sea and Rodney Bay. There is a cozy built-in area for reading and relaxing. On the 'treehouse' patio there is a table for four people with the flamboyant tree providing shade for afternoon lunches.

The 'treehouse' patio has a bridge that leads to the swimming pool, which is surrounded by colorful bougainvillea and tropical plants.

There are two double bedrooms on the main living level. Bedroom 1 has two single beds that can be made into a king size bed, with louver windows that look out towards the lovely flamboyant tree. There is a bath room off of this bedroom. Bedroom 2 has a four poster queen size bed with an en-suite bathroom. This bedroom has a door that leads to the swimming pool and sun deck.

The double master bedroom is at an elevated level. It has a queen size four poster bed and a large en-suite bathroom. There is also a private patio off of the bedroom which enjoys a fabulous view of the Caribbean Sea and Rodney Bay. This patio has two tables for eating and each seats two people.

All of the bedrooms have ceiling fans and mosquito nets. A housekeeper comes with the villa. Entertainment - music center and Cable, flat screen television.Extensive library for reading material. Games for the whole family. Internet WI-FI access is provided at the villa.

The garden is magical. It is very private, with many different palm, flamboyant and orchid trees. All colors of bougainvillea are throughout the garden. Our gardener went to the jungle and brought back lovely orchids which have attached themselves to the flamboyant tree on the 'treehouse' deck.

Brenda and Orleander are our housekeepers. If you buy the goods then she will make great Caribbean dishes for you on nights that you prefer to be at the villa to watch the sunset and not drive into the Rodney Bay restaurants.

The villa is 15 minutes from Castries Airport and 90 minutes from Hewanorra International Airport. International acclaimed Le Sport Spa is the closest beach only 5 minutes away. Reduit Beach and Rodney Bay are a 10 minute drive. The golf course is minutes away as are the tennis courts.

Amazing stay at Hummingbird Villa!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 2, 2014
  • Stayed: Feb 2014
My family just returned from spending February break at Hummingbird Villa in beautiful St. Lucia. We had an amazing week, thanks in large part to this villa and its staff! Walking into the villa, after a tiring day of travel, we were met by the housekeeper, Brenda, who offered us cool washcloths and delicious rum punch! The villa exceeded our expectations in all ways; the pictures do not do justice to the beauty surrounding the villa and the views overlooking Rodney Bay and the ocean beyond - incredible! The villa is fully equipped with all necessities, as well as many extra amenities, including DVDs, games, and books. The kitchen is completely stocked with all appliances and cookware needed to prepare a meal and the grocery store (a great store!) is only a 10 minute car ride down the hill.

Marguerrite was very helpful in assisting with a sailing trip to Soufriere. This day-long trip is a must-do; our family loved this, with my 14-year old stating that it was one of the "best days of her life!" Marguerrite also arranged for fresh fish to be delivered to the villa, which was then prepared by Brenda, who is a wonderful cook! We took advantage of some of the great restaurants in Rodney Bay - "Buzz" was very good and "La Terrasse" was fantastic and very reasonably priced. Finally, the beaches around the villa were great - warm water, great waves, and peaceful settings. Our favorite beaches were the two on Pigeon Island (the hiking here is great) and Smuggler's Cove, where the waves are so much fun!

Overall, our trip to St. Lucia was excellent. We had researched many of the Caribbean Islands for our vacation and finally settled on St. Lucia for its diversity of landscape and outdoor adventures. Our expectations were exceeded in all ways. The island is beautiful, the people are SO friendly, and Hummingbird Villa is an incredible retreat of relaxation. And the weather was perfect!!

Christmas in the tropics

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 26, 2014
  • Stayed: Dec 2013
This was our first visit to the beautiful island of St. Lucia and we could not have chosen a
better location to enjoy Christmas in a tropical climate. The Hummingbyrd Villa quickly
becomes home away from home. The view from the main deck of the house is just beautiful. All three bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. Our favorite feature of the house was the California shutters which could be opened completely not only to let in light but to allow an even more expansive view of Rodney Bay. I don't know anyone who would not naturally be drawn to the pool; it was like a private spa with the gorgeous bouganvillea and lush plantings surrounding it.
The kitchen was well equipped for those visitors who enjoy cooking their own meals ...
again that view from the kitchen once the shutters were open is something which makes you want to stay home and cook.
In all we were made to feel quite welcome by all of those associated with the villa. The housekeeper, Oleander, greeted us with a rum punch upon our arrival and had a meal
prepared for us as we arrived late in the evening. Margaritte, the property manager, met with us our first morning and provided a wealth of information about dining, sight seeing,
car rentals, etc. She also went out of her way to search for a sound dock for us so we could enjoy our own pre-recorded tunes for Christmas.
In summary, we would most certainly return to this beautiful villa. In the short time we were there it managed to capture our hearts and make us regret having to leave.

The perfect location for the perfect holiday.

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 13, 2013
  • Stayed: Dec 2012
My husband and our two boys (aged 11 and 14) arrived on an afternoon flight from the UK, reaching the house by taxi as night fell (ask for Desir - he and his son are the best taxi drivers on the island!). So we unpacked a few things and fell into bed... we were completely unprepared for the most staggering view the next morning when we opened the jalousie windows of the master bedroom and stepped out onto our own romantic balcony. We lay in the hammock and watched the sun come up on Christmas Eve.

The master bedroom is stunning and has a very large en suite with his and hers sinks, as well as a shower, lots of storage for your holiday clothes and a safe. Downstairs the kitchen is beautiful, with marble surfaces and all the mod cons you need including picnic gear and cool boxes if you are heading off exploring for the day.

The sitting room has cable, DVD, music players. There is all kinds of lighting which you can adjust to suit your mood.

The other two (huge) double bedrooms each have their own bathroom (one is en suite, the other a footstep across the hall) and come with lots of storage also. One is a double bed and the other has twins.

The swimming pool area is so picturesque - you can lie on your sun bed and spot hummingbirds darting in the bougainvillea whilst you relax.

When you lock up and leave (for the day, or retiring to bed at night) there is a state of the art alarm system so you have no need to worry. We accidentally set it off on the first day (opening a door when we had it on) and we had a call within a minute from the security company, when we had to sheepishly explain our mistake!

We recommend you hire a jeep. The nearest beach is Smugglers' Cove, literally 4-5 minutes by jeep. Parking is free everywhere as far as we could make out. You can get very quickly to things like horse-riding, Segways, Reduit Beach and great fun & banana boats - and for the more sophisticated among us, the Cliff at Cap restaurant, the Spa at Bodysport, the golf course.

Everywhere on the island is only a day trip away. For example, we drove down to Sugar Beach (the resort between the Pitons) and had a wonderful lunch, and lay on the beach with the celebs afterwards (all beaches are open to the public). Marigot Bay is about 45-60 mins away, and by day it's great for kayaking - with access to the Roseau River - and by night, Desir will drive you to Rainforest Hideaway, an amazing restaurant you access by boat.

The perfect villa - the perfect holiday.

A Fantastic Experience

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 8, 2013
  • Stayed: Dec 2012
This villa is neatly tucked away on the north of the island in Cap Estate, and as you sit on the balcony and look down on the rest of the island, you realize why the French and the British fought over St. Lucia for so long. The view is absolutely spectacular, as was promised in the listing, and the pool is neatly tucked away behind a lush tapestry of flowers if you prefer quiet. In addition to the dinner table, there is also a breakfast nook, so you can enjoy shade or sun. There is also a hammock which can be hung on the second or first floor balconies which makes the lounging experience second to none.

The three bedrooms are all quite large, and all have their own bathrooms, which is nice if you've brought three couples on vacation. The kitchen is massive if you like to cook, or you can ask the wonderful housekeeper Greta to cook breakfast for you on the days that she cleans. Both she and Benis take great pride in maintaining the condition of the villa, and it makes your experience much sweeter.

Make sure you get directions to get to the villa before you get to the island. Honestly, it's not hard to find once you've driven there (only 3 turns from just about anywhere on the island) but there are no addresses on the island. This was a shock to me when I tried to use GPS to get to the villa. On that note, you really need a rental car for this property; you could take cabs everywhere, but it will be much cheaper to get a rental. Also, US visitors, be warned that St. Lucian's drive on the wrong side of the street, so you'll have to get used to that. It's a short drive (maybe 15 minutes) to Rodney Bay if you want to kick it, and the villa itself is totally isolated from everything, so you can enjoy silence in the evenings.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this villa, but I will conclude by saying that, if you stay here, you will enjoy yourself.

Hummingbird Villa is located in the popular Cap Estate area in the north of the island. It is very close, within walking distance, to the world famous, Le Sport Spa and Resort. The Golf course for all of the island is located right below the house about a 5 minute drive. Rodney Bay and all the amenities are about a 10-12 minute drive from the house. There is great snorkeling at Rodney Bay or Smuggler's Cove, a nearby beach. There are many day trips you can take such as a visit to the rainforest, a visit to various restaurants in the Pitons' area, Marigot Bay for lunch and snorkeling or a nice hike and lunch at Pigeon Island right below the house.
