Jacaranda is a lovely Creole cottage style villa loaded with charm, beauty and comfort. The lushly planted garden entrance, gingerbread trim and pale blue clapboard siding sets the stage for a picture perfect Caribbean home with a stunning view. The wide pool deck and palmed framed turquoise pool takes your eye directly to the azure sea and sky. Within your view are expansive decks for lounging and dining. A traditional gazebo sits at the pools edge; a perfect spot for watching the brilliant sunsets.
Terracotta floors and epi wood decks beautifully connect the interior and exterior spaces. Airy vaulted ceilings inset with fans raise above the newly refurbished interior living spaces and bedrooms. The large open plan living room is filled with new and very comfortable furniture in cream and taupe. Local art and interesting and exotic decorative pieces complement the dcor. The large, well-equipped Provence style kitchen opens to the view and the outdoor and indoor dining rooms.
Each of the four bedrooms has been refurbished with an airy dcor in serene white accented with color. Three are equal size; one is smaller. The mosquito netted beds and exotic art pieces are repeated in all the bedrooms accenting the Creole feel of the home. The master bedroom plus the new smaller bedroom connect to the main living area, great for families with children. Each bedroom has sea views. Some have private seating inside and outside. Each bedroom has a unique en suite bathroom tiled in the traditional tiles from Provence. The look is charming and reflective of the tropical style. The bathrooms have walk-in showers plus sea or garden views.
Although secluded, you are close to amenities. It is a short drive to Baie Longue Beach and to Baie Nettles new culinary stars; Le Sand, Dreams and Mezza Luna. You are 2 minutes to the grocery at Puerto Cupecoy plus another five minutes to the airport. In 10 minute you reach the charming French capital of Marigot with restaurants, shops, historic buildings and the Creole Market. Only 25 minutes to Grand Case or Philipsburgs shopping haven.

We had a wonderful time at Jacaranda and appreciated the many extras the Luxury Retreat experience provided. The daily housekeeping was an extra treat and the home was comfortable and had a gorgeous view. All the bedrooms had air conditioning and great water pressure in the bathrooms! The open air living was a perfect way to make the most of the gorgeous weather. The only change I would've appreciated in the house would be a better stocked kitchen (just the essentials and a few better tools---and some ant traps!) Overall we had a great time here and will absolutely book with Luxury Retreats again!
The Jacaranda villa was so great! Very open plan with the pool as the centerpiece. Beautiful view of sky and ocean. The service was above and beyond. Our concierge Candice and Jasmine were so attentive and informative making sure we had a great experience which we did.
The Villa layout was perfect and the swimming area was beautiful at night and during the day.

The kitchen could use upgrades. Our coffee maker and toaster stopped working. They were replaced but the appliance including the stove and fridge could have the kitchen area more welcoming to cook in.
The green room, blue room and pink room bathrooms were the same, they are starting to look their age and a little facelift with the tile and grouting could do a lot for the look. The green room shower would splash water everywhere and then we would have to
The pink room air conditioner needs some attention. It kept turning off on its own. We would leave the villa for the day looking forward to the AC when we returned and the room would be hot because the AC turned off.
The kitchens plates, cooking essentials and serving plates were great,
