Villa Olive, also known as WV ECO, is a contemporary 4-bedroom villa located in Gouverneur within minutes of the beach and shopping. This hilltop estate offers a panoramic view of the bay.
Built into volcanic rock, this house uses natural materials to create teak walkways, sculptural walls, desert gardens, and grand pavilions. To the left of the entrance is a living room with white couches, ottomans, and glass doors, which opens on all sides to the view. Located in a separate pavilion is the well-equipped kitchen, which opens to the dining area with a large table and view. A second, outdoor dining area is located on the teak deck.
Just past the living room are 2 bedrooms, each in separate buildings divided by a teak walkway. The other 2 bedrooms are located to the right of the entrance. These spacious bedrooms are decorated in white with photographic art, floor-to-ceiling mirrors, and concealed shelves. Each bedroom has a European queen-size bed, a dressing room, an en suite bathroom with dual rain showerheads, and access to the teak deck with view.
An expansive teak deck with palm trees, a cushioned living area, and loungers surrounds the large infinity pool, which is heated in high season. A long, covered teak walkway along the back of the house connects the rooms and features a small lounging pavilion at each end.
The house also has WiFi, a sound system, and U.S. satellite TV. Parties in the villa are accepted only upon request from the manager or owner.
During the December holidays, the villa rents at the full occupancy rate regardless of how many bedrooms are used. This villa is suitable for children, ages 12 and older, and does not allow pets. Included in your rental are pre-travel concierge services including air booking, car rental booking and destination activity planning. During your vacation you will have access to on-island concierge services through our local office.
Villa WV ECO, also known as Villa Olive, is an exquisite hilltop estate in Gouverneur and offers an eagle's eye view over St. Jean Bay, St Barts. Built into the volcanic rock villa WV ECO has a desert like setting with the wild natural materials transformed into a landscape of teak walkways, sculptural walls, desert gardens and grand, yet intimate, living pavilions.
Ascend a teak stairway to the central pavilion which flows out onto an expansive teak deck and overflows into the horizon on the waters of a gray green infinity pool which floats along the full front of the deck and view. To the left of the entrance pavillion is a living room, with a labyrinth of white couches and ottomans, and glass doors which open on all sides to invite in the views.
Just past the living room are two bedrooms, each in separate buildings divided by a teak walkway. These spacious bedrooms are private oases, decorated in white, accented with black and white photographic art, floor to ceiling mirrors and shelves which can be concealed behind rolling floor to ceiling doors, a dressing room, and a bathroom with dual rain shower heads. The feeling is fresh, clean, modern and very private. The quality of the design and materials used within, compliment the warmth and beauty of natural elements outside. The front walls of glass of these two bedrooms both open onto a teak deck area and the magnificent view.
Just past the dining room and kitchen pavillion that are to the right of the entrance, you will find two more of these inviting queen sized bedrooms, with all of the same amenities and ambiance. The view doesn't feature as much of the sea as the bedrooms to the left, but the vista over the hillsides and the towering cactus are fabulous. There is a long covered teak walkway along the back of the house which provides another lovely connection to all rooms. At either end of the walkway is a small lounging pavillion - for relaxing, or enjoying a tranquil massage in plein air.
The majesty of this hilltop setting, and the use of native materials to complement thoughtful design and modern sensibilities, creates a most unique vacation experience from this vantage point.
Parties in the villa are accepted only upon request from Manager/Owner
