Set in the secluded, lush southern headlands of Marigot Bay, Emerald Hill Villa commands a 270-degree wrap-around view of the Caribbean Sea and tropical fjord the island is famous for - from ocean sunsets in the west to the golden hues of Roseau Beach to the south.
Once home to the seagoing Boudreau family, that owned much of Marigot Bay in the 1960s, Emerald Hill was designed to make the most of the spellbinding charms of St. Lucia, with a captivating blend of superb indoor and outdoor living.
The main entrance opens into a spacious living room looking out onto a blue-tiled plunge pool that follows the line of the cliff below the house. A remarkable optical illusion actually makes the pool appear to be running straight into the sea.
The living room's striking design incorporates large natural stones and timber as part of its structure, with walls completely open to the west, making this the perfect place to relax your way through a breathtaking Caribbean sunset and perhaps even catch a glimpse of the elusive green flashes.* And when the final colors of the day fade from the sky, you can soak up the magic in the plunge pool as the stars spread out over the night sky and add even more sparkle to your stay.
A fully-equipped kitchen bursting with light and inviting dining area adjoin the living room, all furnished with attractive antiques set off against the Spanish clay tile floors and impressive open fireplace. A wide veranda runs the full length of the house, overlooking the open sea on one side and the ethereal beauty of Marigot Bay on the other.
The two bedrooms are air-conditioned, each with its own private bathroom - and both feature wide, expansive windows and four-poster beds fashioned from native wood - all the better for you to lie back and drink in the splendor of the Caribbean seascape with.
You can bask in all the sensual pleasures of the islands and feast your eyes on unrivaled vistas from this two-acre oasis of elegance and privacy. Emerald Hill is truly an exclusive getaway, designed to appeal to those who appreciate luxury and seclusion at their best.
*Green flashes are a natural sunset phenomenon. They happen just after the sun has plunged into the sea on an utterly cloudless day, when a brilliant band of green light, as broad as the sun itself, flashes across the horizon.
