Tamarind House is an exceptionally spacious villa nestled in the hills above Anse Chastanet beach on St. Lucias West coast and built from the finest materials, including walls made of local stone and ceilings held aloft by greenheart wood. Youll be captivated by the grandeur of the famous Pitons, as well as panoramic views of the Caribbean Sea.
Leafy banana plants and flowers greet you in the circular front courtyard as you approach the villa. Behind the main house, an expansive terrace surrounds the central rooms where a tamarind tree grows up through the Barbados tiles offering shade to those escaping the mid-afternoon heat. Another smooth terrace lined with sunloungers wraps a large, inviting pool. The outdoor grill is perfect for al fresco dining. Head to the gazebo or any of the outdoor lounge sets and take in St. Lucias magical sunsets.
An immense living room unveils your first glimpse of the beautiful decor adorning Tamarind House. The homes antique furnishings and tasteful touches have earned it a place in Maco magazine and the book, Caribbean Elegance. An immense living room is the centrepiece of the interior, revealing stunning views through archways opening onto the back terrace. Catch a glimpse of lush green foliage as you prepare a meal in the fully-equipped, modern kitchen. An open-sided dining area seats up to eight guests.
All four bedrooms are furnished with elegant wood four-poster beds and antique furniture, with curtains that billow in the breeze. The three bedrooms in the main house have en-suite bathrooms of Italian tile and open onto a private balcony. The fourth bedroom is found in a separate, self-contained cottage, with its own living room, kitchenette and terrace with dining table.
Youre free to use a tennis court located below the house. Anse Chastanet beach is a five minute drive and has diving facilities, plus a protected marine park for snorkeling. Soufriere is close to St. Lucias most spectacular natural features: Pitons, Sulphur Springs, botanical gardens, and hidden waterfalls. Shops and restaurants can be found in town, though serious shoppers may prefer a daytrip to Rodney Bay.

We had a wonderful time in St Lucia and loved staying at the Tamarind House. It was so spacious, with beautiful views. The host was gracious and we enjoyed the meals the cooks made very much. it was so enjoyable to come home after sightseeing or snorkeling to have a delicious meal waiting for us, while watching the sun set over the water. Such a lovely, lovely place. Thank you Luxury Retreats!
We found Tamarind House to be an ideal and stunning venue for our special 2 week holiday with our four children. The house itself is great, with lovely bedrooms, a wonderful open plan (and cool) living room (with good WiFi for the kids), and lots of amenities like CDs, DVDs and games. My wife and I stayed in the cottage which was lovely and secluded. The swimming pool is bigger than we thought and lovely to swim in on a hot day. We used the tennis court just a couple of times. It was lovely to have Anne and Cheryl to cook breakfast, clean, and prepare lunch or dinner -- a real treat when so much time can be taking with preparing meals. They were helpful, cheerful and discreet. The only things to be aware of are that there are a lot of mosquitos in the summer, and we got bitten a lot before we knuckled down to a strict regime of putting on repellent in the morning and evening, and spraying rooms before going to bed. The second thing is that it is really worth hiring a car.
The house was perfect, and the view...wow. The ladies on staff were lovely to us and made such delicious food.
We had a fabulous time while at theTamarind villa. We loved the charm of the villa with its stone construction and the expansive verandah. The peace and quiet along with the complete privacy really allowed us to rest. The food and the service we received were excellent. The staff were friendly, but respected our privacy. We could not get enough of the view: morning, noon, and night. Wished we would have had more warning about the ravenous mosquitoes. We brought supplies knowing there would be mosqitoes, but did not realize you need to spray yourself the second you get out of bed. We learned! Also, wished we had a better description of the road going up to our villa since we drove ourselves up and down a couple of times. It was a hair-raising experience. While there, we went to two beaches for snorkeling. Both experiences were amazing.
The house is the most spectacular villa have ever rented. With flooding in St. Lucia and a snow storm in New York getting there and back was a real problem, but Lucille was exceptionally helpful and in the end it all worked out fine. We will definitely try to go back at some point!
