Overview

Caribbean Villa Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom With Beachfront View in a Private Domain

Princess X is a beachfront villa in St Barts. Located a few step from the private beach of Petit-Cul-de-Sac, Princess X provide a paradise view on the tropical garden and the beach.

Villa Princess X is located a few steps from the private beach and calm waters of Petit Cul-de-Sac. Princess X boasts an unabashedly modern and unique design, one that sets it apart from the majority of other St. Barth villas. This home takes its name from a work by Constantin Brancusi, as if to describe itself as a residential sculpture rather than merely a home. The structure’s clean lines and melding of symmetrical and asymmetrical forms lends it a spirit reminiscent of 1960’s Hamptons modernist design. A gently curving teak walkway curves from the terrace down through a field of fountain plants and blue agave to the beach. Unlike the majority of properties in St. Barth, Villa Princess X stands on a large parcel of relatively level ground, giving it a wide-open feeling and a wonderful expanse of blue sky above you.

The layout of Villa Princess X optimizes its guests’ comfort and privacy. The central living and dining area is designed as one integrated space that flows directly to the outside and nature thanks to large sliding glass doors. The kitchen area, decorated in eye-catching 'acid green,' is contiguous with the dining area, making meal preparation convenient and social. Discrete sliding doors conceal the bedrooms located on either side of the main living area, and sliding glass doors in each bedroom open onto the terrace and the view of Petit-Cul-de-Sac. Inviting daybeds on the deck offer places for either shady relaxation or sunning by the infinity pool. Along the path from the house to the beach you will find a sheltered outdoor dining area with a gas grill and a complete wet bar, perfect for an after-beach luncheon or a barbecue under the starts.

All these thoughtful details and design flourishes combine to make Villa Princess X a pleasure in and of itself, the perfect place to unwind with family or friends. Add to this the villa’s remarkable location, just steps from a secluded, white-sand beach, and you have discovered a true St. Barth’s treasure.

About Laurent

The first time we went to St Barts was in 2007. Before, we had traveled all around the world for business and vacations. we have been so charmed by the way of life of St Barts, that we have spent all our vacations in the island since 2007. Then, in 2009 we decided to purchased this villa for realized our dream.

Laurent purchased this villa in 2009

Why Laurent chose Caribbean

We have chosen to purchase the Villa Princess X, because this is the perfect place to be in St Barts. The villa is in a large land, without vis-à-vis, that is very rare in St Barts. The beach, is about 50 meters from the pool… that is also very rare !

What makes this villa unique

Princess X is in the only private domain of the island, that offers quiet and privacy, that is really appreciate by all our host. The private beach and the private tennis courts are unique in St Barts.

Incredible.

  • 5 of 5

The Villa is amazing! Photos can't make justice of this beautiful place, the house, the surroundings and the views are something divine.

It's quite secluded, which can be something good, it all depends on what you are looking for! You are 20 mts to the beach, which most of the time we were alone. The pool is fantastic, the house is very comfortable, spacious and with nice a modern decor.The staff was very kind too. If you ask me if I would come back, no doubts about that!

We do not recommend renting this home

  • 1 of 5

We do not recommend renting this home. We rented the home in 2014 and again in 2015. However, in our opinion, the home has not been well maintained and our stay this year was truly miserable. Most troubling was that, although the home is advertised as air-conditioned, the living and dining areas have no air-conditioning, and the air-conditioning in the master bedroom and bath area failed. Due to the heat this year in St. Barths and lack of air-conditioning, we could not cook, eat or watch TV comfortably in the home. Because the air-conditioning in the master bedroom and bath failed, we had to sleep and bathe in the less desirable second bedroom/bath, which had no TV. The home has no windows and no screens on the doors, so, if we left the doors open, the mosquitos or bugs swarmed. Also, for almost the entire week we stayed in the home, the internet and landline did not work; therefore, we were unable to transact business, check emails or even make dinner reservations from the home. We inconveniently had to go to the airport or hotels on the island when we wanted to check our emails. Faucet handles repeatedly fell off, which was frustrating and posed a safety risk in the shower. There was some bubbling on some walls, and some of the floor-boards were loose. The owner was unsympathetic and unaccommodating. When we complained about the unsatisfactory conditions in his home, he disingenuously said he would comp the rental car, but when we first arrived in St. Barths, the rental car representative told us that the car rental was already included in the price of the home rental. In sum, we had a very bad experience in this home and do not recommend it.

Owner's Response: To clarify the erroneous comments of this host, the internet network in this part of the island broke down on Friday May 1 which is a public holiday in France. The repair was performed Monday, May 4 in the morning by technicians of the operator. The air conditioning of the villa worked perfectly. Given the extremely high temperature that week was advised to close the windows of the villa to keep the freshness in, which was not followed. The rental car was not included in the lease of the villa. The rent company said he no longer wished to rent a car to this client that returned the car in a state of lamentable dirt. Our villa manager, and the housekeeper also no longer wishes to have contacts with this host that is unpleasant and rude. The villa is rented since 2006 and this is the first time we have comments that are totally false. We do not recommend this host.

As good as advertised

  • 5 of 5

Cant say enough about how wonderful our stay has been at Princess X. The home is as beautiful as the pictures detail. Guillame met us at the dock as promised and was very helpful about the home as well as the island. I must admit, we were a bit apprehensive about renting a home via wire tranfer overseas but everything worked out perfectly. The home is in a very private section of the island, the sun hits the back deck around 9:15 am and stays through late afternoon. Just a fantastic stay and already planning a return.
