About the property

A 3 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms Property With Incredible Views In Cap Estate

'In Xanadu did Kubla Khan a stately pleasure dome decree.....' Samuel Coleridge 1797

The unique design of this magnificent villa was inspired by the famous domed City of pleasure called Xanadu created by the Mongol ruler Kubla Khan in China during the 12th century. Standing proudly on a sea facing hillside for many years it is still as fresh and interesting today and has recently undergone an extensive renovation whilst preserving the character of this tasteful and fascinating study in concrete and stonework engineering. The domes of the villa dominate the hillside on St Lucia's northern tip in the exclusive residential area of the old sugar plantation of Cap Estate.

In good visibility the nearby larger Island of Martinique is clearly seen to the north and this makes an impressive backdrop to the Caribbean sea view both during the day and at night.

The high south west facing terraces of Xanadu provide beautiful views of nearby Pigeon Island and St Lucia's Caribbean coastline and and is the perfect place to enjoy a sundowner while watching the setting sun. These Caribbean sunsets are famous for their beauty and you may even witness the elusive green flash when the sky is clear. The Villa is surrounded by nearly two acres of gardens that slope gently away from the house and are home to coconut palms and tropical plants.

Nearby is St Lucia's Golf Resort and Country Club. This is a challenging and enjoyable 18 hole par 71 golf course.

There are nearby beautiful white sand beaches catering for all manner of water sports including safe swimming and snorkeling, scuba diving, hobby cat sailing, water skiing, para gliding and wind surfing.

Sports fishing and deep sea fishing enthusiasts will soon find what they want.

When the present owners bought the Villa for them it was love at first sight. They were captivated by the elevated position and the 270 degree views of the ocean and coastline. The gentle sea breezes temper the tropical heat and make relaxing by the poolside a real pleasure. The pool extends into the domed living area and has its own bar stools in the water to enjoy that rum punch or local fruit juice.

The villa has three spacious bedroom suites arranged round the pool terrace, all with modern bathrooms and wonderful uncluttered views of the ocean and gardens. They have nautically themed names. They all have their own private separate access direct from the terrace. There is a separate maid's room below the house.

'Captain's Quarters'--- Master bedroom

This air conditioned bedroom suite is elevated with a large rain forest shower room below and has a separate balcony overlooking the pool terrace and ocean views to Martinique. An impressive four poster king size bed adds to the wow factor of this domed ceiling circular bedroom. It has a shaving point in the bathroom and hair dryer is provided.

'Ocean'—Queen bedroom

Step out of this lovely bedroom and the swimming pool is 3 strides away. Large windows face the ocean and the Island of Martinique and the gardens. It has a four poster queen size bed and air conditioning and large ceiling fan. There is a small safe and hair dryer. In the bathroom there is a shaving point.

'Bosuns' ---- King bedroom

This the largest bedroom suite with an enormous double bed and an additional separate single bed. It is air conditioned and also has a large ceiling fan and opens on to the pool terrace. It has a small safe, shaver point in the bathroom and hairdryer.

'The Dome'

This huge circular domed living area is the center piece of the Villa and its five large bi-fold doors open to a circular terrace giving the option of the outdoor living that is the essence of life in St Lucia and the Caribbean. The completely circular area with it's compass rose floor has a unique atmosphere and gives access to the swimming pool bar which is partly inside the dome. Large plants shrive in this sheltered room and give a truly botanical feel. There is a dedicated television area.

The Dome leads to the curved kitchen area with completely modern equipment and corian work surfaces and double sink. It is claimed that no where in the Caribbean is the view from the kitchen sink so spectacular. The historical Pigeon Island lies below and the beautiful coastline of the west of the Island stretch away and at night the lights of the town of the town of Gros Islet and marina village at Rodney Bay add to the magical view. The kitchen has a powerful four burner Italian cooker with large oven and grill and a huge double fridge freezer and ice maker. Other equipment include a microwave oven, dishwasher, toaster and kettle. The kitchen doors lead on to the barbecue terrace and sheltered outside dining area.

A daily maids service is provided if required and security services ensure your stay is safe and enjoyable.

Regretfully the villa is not considered small children friendly (under the age of 10 years) and no pets are permitted. Smoking anywhere inside the villa is not permitted.

Paradise in St. Lucia

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this remarkable property so much. Nestled above Rodney Bay, we had incredible views of the ocean, Pigeon Island and even Martinique. The set-up is perfect for one couple or a large group. Thanks to Kris for helping with the particulars and logistics -- not one detail was overlooked. Thanks also to Viola who took such good care of us and the property.

Amazing vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

As others have written, Villa Xanadu is truly heaven on earth. We (5 of us) had the pleasure of visiting for 2 weeks (November 26 to December 10).

From our driver Donald picking us up at the airport to Viola our wonderful housekeeper, and Kris our property manager, everything was perfect. We loved having our own pool and the privacy of own house. Each morning, we would have coffee on the huge deck that surrounds the villa and then proceed to the pool to whatever activity we had planned for the day.

There really is nothing negative that could be said about Xanadu as it truly exceptional. Pictures shown are exactly what the villa looks like and more because you cannot really appreciate the views and beautiful breeze that constantly keeps you cool - thank goodness because it was very hot.

We went out for dinner a few times and barbecued most other nights. We especially enjoyed The Big Chef Steakhouse. We also visited Spinnakers, Tapas on the Bay and a pizza restaurant. All were worth the visit.

Grocery Stores are modern and most everything is available including wine, beer and alcohol.

We would definitely return! Thanks Kris, Viola and Donald!!

Breathtaking

  • 5 of 5

This villa was one of the nicest on the island. The house was beautiful and the views were breathtaking. Well worth it to stay here rather than a hotel. We had a family of 6 and we were all very comfortable. Our maid viola was great and our security was impeccable. We felt very safe here. As long as you follow the house guidelines for the alarm and security than you will have no issues. The house is open but there are security lasers surrounding the pool and open areas so you are safe at all times. There are two restaurants less than 3 minutes away that are delicious with amazing views. More restaurants are about 5-10 minutes from house. Close to grocery store as well. We loved our time here and would love to come back. Worth every penny!!!

Beautiful View Comfortable House

  • 5 of 5

The house is very comfortable and in a truly beautiful location. It has three distinct en-suite bedrooms for three couples or family groups. The kitchen is modern and well equipped. There are more than enough chairs overlooking a beautiful view to have coffee in a different place each morning. The "dome" is the most amazing feature. You can open the doors and get a wonderful cross breeze. You can also sit in the pool at the swim up bar and be actually inside the house. Kris and staff are very helpful and will fill your shopping list so you don't have to venture out the first night after the long drive from the Airport.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in St. Lucia.

Villa Xanadu

  • 4 of 5

We were a group of 3 couples staying at this villa. The view from the patio was stunning. We enjoyed cooking several of our meals here, hanging out poolside and congregating in the dome. Kris took care of having our rental car delivered to the villa, planning a catamaran boat tour and a chef to cook an Authentic Creole Dinner for us. (The dinner was delicious). She was available to us whenever we needed her assistance. Viola took great care of the house during our stay. She provided friendly, yet very professional service. Only one comment for the property owner- the stay would have been enhanced had there been more comfortable furniture in the dome. Xanadu Villa is a good place to relax, have fun and connect with friends.

Owner's Response: We are so happy you enjoyed your stay at Xanadu and many thanks for your comments. The dome is a bit unique with the pool coming right into it but this makes the area almost part of the outside living that is so Caribbean which is why the furniture is the type it is. However we are taking your comments seriously and will certainly give the matter consideration. Xanadu House Ltd.

One of the most enchanting islands on earth, Saint Lucia seems to have been designed for romance. Its lush mountainous interior, filled with hummingbirds and cascading waterfalls, combined with palm fringed coves and warm azure waters create a magical backdrop for any occasion. This tropical paradise is further enhanced by a charming people and fascinating history.
