CAP PAVILION: PRIVACY IN 'PARADISE'

Cap Estate Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa with complete privacy and services and security of full time live-in staff

The 3 -winged villa, with 5.000 square feet of covered area on 5 acres of fully fenced and gated land, is situated on the very top of a hill above “Anse Galet” enjoying 360 degrees panoramic views – and the trade-winds (which also gives the added advantage of few mosquitoes and no sand flies!). It is surrounded by partly landscaped garden, but mostly by native Cap Estate vegetation. We cut down as little as possible, bearing in mind that the cutting takes a few hours – growing takes years or even centuries. We hope you’ll explore the grounds – there is much to discover.

Our gardener, Lawrence, looks after the many different fruit trees on the property : papaya, mango, pineapple, coconut as well as the bees which produce sweet Cap Pavilion honey. The natural setting attracts a variety of wildlife including hummingbirds, geckos and neon caterpillars, who leave their cocoon as enormous butterflies...

We built the house in 1988 as a home-away-from home and not as a holiday home per se. We took inspiration from Oliver Messel’s old designs on Barbados and Mustique. The floors and columns are coral rendered and the woodwork is decorated in his signature “Mustique Green”. In the drive in front of the house stands an old sugar pot befitting the plantation house style. The house is built around a central courtyard and we placed the pool on a lower level, out of sight. (Families with small children should be aware of this, as it does call for vigilance, we know as we had 6 of them growing up with the house. But there are 40 slowly descending steps down to the pool, time enough to catch them...). The house is furnished with an eclectic mix of objects from around the world, from places we have lived; it is part of our lives – and we are happy to share it with you.

We really like our staff and we hope you do too. Let Sandrine cook a variety of local and international dishes, bake cakes and produce fresh juices. Ask Cecil, (Sandrine’s husband with own car) who takes care of the house and pool, to do your shopping if you do not enjoy the daily hustle and bustle of filling the fridge...Let Marcella (8:00am – 3:00p.m.) take care of the cleaning and laundering while you relax : go snorkelling (equipment in house), discover “Secret Beach” (no, we won’t tell you where it is !), play golf (golf club a few minutes drive), tennis (Racquet Club 5 minutes drive), squash (10 minutes drive), go swimming in the sea (closest beach 5 minutes drive), or explore the island by road or by sea... the choice is yours.

St Lucia is a perfect holiday destination - easy to get to, safe and friendly, beautiful and varied. Cap Estate offers the best of St Lucia - great beaches, a wide range of sports (golf, windsurfing and kite surfing are all nearby), dramatic scenery and easy access to the restaurants and shopping of Rodney Bay. It feels more secluded than the main tourist strip but you can easily get into the heart of things if you want to... though we found that we often just enjoyed the house and all it has to offer.

The house itself is built on top of a knoll on the north tip of the island which not only gives it 360 degree views, but also natural air conditioning in the form of the trade winds (although there is air conditioning in the rooms that might need it.)

The live in staff at the house ensure you can 'have it your way'. They are available 7 days a week and will make sure that you can sit back and relax if that is what you want to do, but you can also choose to take a more active role in the shopping and exploring the island.

The house is ideal for groups or families of 6-8 people but can accommodate 11 people if a number of these are children.

OUR PERSONAL PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Cap Pavilion with another couple of young families and it became our base for a remarkable Easter holiday. Perched in a commanding position on a hill, and surrounded by lush vegetation, Cap Pavilion was our own little paradise tucked away from the big hotels and modern holiday homes but close enough to the beautiful beaches and local amenities. It was exactly what we had been looking for.

The property gives everyone plenty of room and we soon found our own favourite place to pass away the time. Whether that was down by the pool hidden amongst the luxurious trees and plants, on the roof terrace for a spot of evening sun, in the garden amongst the aloe vera, or through the archway where the Atlantic sea breeze blows through, cooling mid-day sun. My own favourite spot became the large living room area which opens up completely to the outside, providing a very unique place to relax with a book or a drink with great views all around.

We found the house staff incredible helpful and the cooking sublime. Having sourced our fresh fruits and breads from the the local markets our breakfasts, taken each day after a morning swim, were delicious. If we needed advice on where to go or how to get there the staff were equally keen to share their local knowledge. We felt privileged that we were able to discover the lesser known beaches, beauty-spots and villages as well as the well-trodden tourist highlights. You will need a car for your stay at Cap Pavilion and this proved very useful in allowing us to explore a large area and giving us the flexibility we needed.

I would highly recommend making Cap Pavilion your base for a stay on the beautiful island of St Lucia. It was certainly a holiday that our family will never forget.

IT REALLY IS PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had an unforgettable 10-day stay here and can't wait to go back. We were lucky enough to have seen it and I take great pleasure in reporting back on our experiences here, in the hope that someone else will get to experience this place.

First, the location. This beautiful home is on top of one of the largest hills in the Cap Estate area so up on the second floor you have unobstructed views of the entire Northern part of the island. I could spend hours up there just looking in one direction, or another, or another…picking out a beach to explore, getting a bird's-eye feel for the island, or just watching the sunset (or the sunrise, or the stars…). There is also a gorgeous swimming pool, surrounded by open rock faces and lush vegetation, which would beckon us for a dip at all hours of the day.

Second, the house. You really get the impression that every last corner of this home has been thought through in great deal - the architecture, the interior design and the landscaping/gardening. To be honest, we were a little nervous when we read that the place didn't have air conditioning - coming from the Northeast US, we couldn't imagine 85F/sunny weather without A/C, but it wasn't a problem at all. The thing I didn't realize was that the house, being entirely open-plan and on top of a hill, gets plenty of air circulation, so the temperature just feels comfortable all day long. It also helps that the island as a whole is warm and sunny, but never that humid.

Third, the staff. Sandrine and Cecil live at the house full-time (in a sort-of basement apartment so I never felt like we were intruding on their living space) and they of course, therefore, take great care of the place and of the guests who stay there. Sandrine did all of the food shopping and cooking for us, which was perfect. She seems able (and very willing) to make any dish one could wish for but of course her specialities are delicious local/Caribbean dishes. In addition to Sandrine and Cecil, a cleaner keeps everything to resort-style levels of cleanliness. They made us feel totally at home. For example, we'd come back from a late-afternoon swim and be greeted with fresh rum punch to drink on the sun deck, just in time to watch the sunset before dinner.

I could go on and on. But, in short, I'm willing to bet that this is one of the great hidden treasures on VRBO (how can I be the first one writing a review?!). Go there if you can - it really is a paradise.
