WEST INDIAN-STYLE LUXURY VILLA WITH STUNNING SEA VIEWS

Cap Estate Villa Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 15, swimming pool, fabulous views to Atlantic and Caribbean

“How strange to be in this vast, opulent villa in St Lucia by myself. I wander through the seven double bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. White walls, high ceilings, dark-wood floors, high airy rooms with ocean views – where in this wilderness of elegance shall I sleep? I settle on an upstairs room with a four-poster bed and a balcony the size of a cricket pitch. Where shall I drink alone? Between the balcony, the veranda, the deck and the gazebo by the swimming pool, there are at least a dozen prime drinking chairs, and every time I sit down with my glass of rum, I feel like sitting somewhere else. The sun is setting over the Caribbean: the landscaped gardens are full of flowers: mangos and limes hang ripe on the trees.”

As described in the Travel section of the Saturday Telegraph newspaper 28 July 2012.

Tamarind is high up on Cap Estate with clear views to the Atlantic and Caribbean and overlooks the Cap Estate 18-hole golf course - 5 minutes away by car. The house has recently been totally refurbished and extended to the highest standard. Caribbean beaches, shops, and restaurants at Rodney Bay, 5 minutes by car; Atlantic beaches a mere 15 minute walk. All kinds of water sports at every resort. Scuba diving is particularly good at Anse Chastenet. Excellent restaurants and bars, live West Indian music at Rodney Bay. Don't forget Gros Islet's Friday Night 'Jump-up' or the world renowned annual Jazz festival in May.

What is Tamarind like? : Tamarind, built in 1991, has superb views towards the Caribbean in the west and the Atlantic in the east. Facing south and overlooking the golf course, the house is situated in an acre of beatifully landscaped garden with mango, avocado, lime, coconut, breadfruit and tamarind trees. The design of the house makes maximum use of local stone and wood combining a west Indian feel with every modern amenity. The house has 8 bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms. Downstairs wooden louvres and high ceilings throughout catch the cool Atlantic breeze and provide an overwhelming feeling of space. Each bedroom upstairs benefits from airconditioning. Even in the warmer summer months the house is cool. The three downstairs ensuite bedrooms each open on to the outside balcony providing separate and individual outdoor privacy. Upstairs the two master bedrooms open onto a veranda with spectacular views. For more information on Tamarind or St Lucia please contact us for web site address

Where is Tamarind located? : Tamarind is located at the northern end of St. Lucia on Cap Estate, a development of luxury villas. Many St. Lucians, British and Americans live on the estate. Five minutes walking distance from the house are some beautiful hiking trails along the Atlantic coast and lovely secluded unspoilt beaches. The superb Cap Estate golf course is minutes away by car, also squash, tennis and a gym. Beaches are close by with scuba diving, sailing, and other water sports. Castries, the capital is 20 minutes away; Soufriere is an hour's drive with its slower more relaxed west Indian life style, the famous twin pitons, sulfur springs, tropical rain forest hikes, excellent beaches, and marvellous local restaurants.

Tamarind is managed locally by Tropical Villas who, amongst other things, will be happy to recommend and organise trips and outings.

Tell me about the island: The most beautiful island in the West Indies, St. Lucia is well known for the dramatic views of the twin pitons rising to 2000 feet above the Caribbean in Soufriere. You can swim from beautiful golden sandy beaches and explore dramatic tropical rain forests in the same day. Equally dependent on tourism and agriculture (mostly bananas) the island is politically stable; its strong French heritage means that restaurants are of a high standard and there is lots of interesting French and British colonial history.

Beautifiul and relaxing villa in perfect position

  • 5 of 5
Tamarind Villa is in a wonderful position overlooking both the Atlantic and Caribbean Seas, but high up to catch the views and the breezes to ensure comfort. The facilities of the villa are second to none, from the accommodation to the charming and friendly staff who will rustle up a West indian dish and also the cocktails to go with it. There are plenty of local facilites in the luxurious Cap Estate and nearby in Rodney Bay and in Castries, including restaurants, shopping and the marina.

Undoubtedly one of the best villas in St Lucia

  • 5 of 5
Tamarind is a stunning, exceptionally comfortable villa in a colonial style. Beautifully furnished throughout with very comfortable beds, excellent friendly staff and many little "extra touches". Highlights about the villa for us were the long verandas with beds, hammocks and chairs to sleep in, spectacular views to both coasts and the gazebo for sundowners. The villa is perfectly situated as it has all the advantages of the Cap Estate but most importantly gets the breeze (other villas that we have stayed at can be unbearaby hot). Thoroughly recommend this villa.

It is quiet and secluded and beautiful. The housekeeper will cook you excellent west Indian food if you wish or you can cook yourselves. Francis is the gardener and also looks after the pool and is the night watchman.
