This spectacular villa’s name, Shiro, is a japanese term can mean both “white” and “castle”; both definitions apply here. Resting in the secluded hills overlooking Gouverneur beach, this palatial 2 level home blends the best of clean, contemporary architecture with Eastern influenced design and decor.
Walk down the steps to the large teak terrace where you’ll find an infinity pool whose edge seems to drop right off a cliff into the ocean below. Lounge in one of the cushioned deck chairs or walk down a few more steps to the inviting plush sofas of the outdoor living area. You’ll never be far from the inspiring view of Gouverneur beach and the turquoise waters beyond.
On the villa’s lower floor you’ll experience unrivaled comfort in one of the two lounge areas, each fitted with flatscreen TV’s and luxuriously soft sofas. Another living area is found upstairs by the open-concept kitchen and dining area. Retractable glass doors surround both floors, allowing a fresh tropical breeze to pass freely. Sleek wooden cabinets frame an ultra-modern kitchen where you can prepare a feast on polished surfaces or enjoy a drink at the bar.
Up to 6 guests can stay in Shiro’s 3 bedrooms. They all have a King size bed, en-suite bathroom, air conditioning, ceiling fan, Wi-Fi and entertainment system. The master bedroom features an outdoor shower. The third bedroom is located in a private cottage separated from the main house by a Japanese-style courtyard. It has a private terrace, dressing area and mini-fridge.
Walk down the winding access road to Gouverneur beach, one of St. Barts most peaceful stretches of sand. If retail therapy is required, it’s just a 5 minute drive to Gustavia and not much further to St. Jean. Both towns are ideal places for a traditional French fine dining experience or to challenge your taste buds with the local Creole cuisine. St. Jean is also home to the islands most iconic beaches.
