Overview

Mount Hardy Villa Rental Photos and Description

Luxury Estate, 5 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 10

Villa Ivrea is located at the northern tip of Cap Estate and boasts spectacular views of both the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. Designed by the American architect Dan F. Sater II and built in 2009 by Wayne Brown D/B, it offers all the amenities required by discerning travelers, beginning with luxuriously appointed bedrooms and social areas, together with outdoor features like infinity pool, panoramic verandas, pergola and terraced gardens. All four bedrooms in the Main House enjoy breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean, the Caribbean Sea or both. A large panoramic deck invites guests to enjoy the sun just outside their room, while an enchanting downstairs veranda provides the ideal setting for deep relaxation, outdoor dining or simply staying close to the pool and witnessing some truly unforgettable Caribbean sunsets.

Cottage: In addition to the Main House, Villa Ivrea offers a fully independent, one-bedroom Cottage that includes a full kitchen with nook, bathroom, living room, central air conditioning, laundry station and a veranda with a splash pool. It enjoys expansive views of the Atlantic Ocean and it is surrounded by an English lawn and a citrus orchard. The Cottage is especially sought after by couples looking for an intimate haven with lovely ocean views and all the modern comfort.

Gardens: The terraced gardens host an eclectic mix of Mediterranean plants, including olive trees, lemon trees, figs, date palms, bay laurel, jasmine, oleander and cypresses, complemented by tropical and native varieties of bird of paradise, cannas, bougainvilleas, ginger lilies, sago palms, mango trees and more. All the water used for the irrigation of the gardens comes from rain-water harvesting.

Nearby Activities and Services: The renowned St. Lucia Golf & Country Club is just a 5-min drive away, while a 15-min drive will put you in the heart of Rodney Bay with all its different attractions, including excellent restaurants, a world-class marina, shopping malls, pharmacies, post office, banks, etc. Restaurants we recommend: The Edge (European-Caribbean fusion), Memories of Hong Kong (Best Chinese in the Windward Islands), Razmataz (Indian) and Big Chef (Steaks). But all this is just the beginning, as the rest of this beautiful island awaits being explored by those interested in snorkeling, hiking, bird watching, scuba diving, sightseeing, mountain biking, deep-sea fishing, sailing and more.

'Saluti' from Villa Ivrea, an elegant taste of Italy, where the enchanting warm waters of the Caribbean Sea meet the crisp waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the dancing lights of Martinique greet you from the veranda.

About Villa Ivrea Owners

Olmedo and Lisa, from Houston, Texas

Villa Ivrea Owners purchased this villa in 2009

Why Villa Ivrea Owners chose Gros Islet

When our friend told us that she had chosen Saint Lucia as the ideal place to build her retirement home, after a nearly four-year search throughout the Caribbean, we had to come and see it for ourselves. From the very first moment we were captivated by the beauty, cleanliness and tranquility of the island, but what won our hearts were the people and their special attitude towards foreigners, unlike anything else we had seen during our multiple trips to other islands in the Caribbean. It was then that we decided to purchase a piece of land, build our dream home and make this emerald paradise a part of our lives. We believe Saint Lucia is gorgeous, but do not take our word for it: come and see for yourselves. You may not end up buying land and deciding to stay, but you will certainly get hooked on it forever.

What makes this villa unique

Built in 2009, Villa Ivrea is only five minutes away from the St. Lucia Golf & Country Club and its fantastic 18-hole course, set within the scenic rolling hills of Cap Estate. It is eight minutes away from the elegant LeSport Spa & Beach Club and their fabulous rejuvenating one-day spa treatments. You can also enjoy seasonal whale watching, right from the comfort of the panoramic deck adjacent to your room. Or simply relax and witness our unforgettable Caribbean sunsets.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lovely view of Martinique, especially at night. Very relaxing and with all the comforts. Wish we could have stayed longer.

The most amazing views and the service to match!!!

  • 5 of 5

The owner and staff are amazing!!! The views were breathtaking. It was close to the store and beaches only a 10 minute drive. Bertha really took care of us. Claudette answered any question we had and went above and beyond. We rent a lot of properties and the service here blew us away. My two year old daughter is still asking for Bertha lol. We will return to this property

No Words!!

  • 5 of 5

Throughout ones lifetime hopefully you will get to travel abroad. The Villa Ivrea in Cap Estate St. Lucia should be a must in those plans. Ms. Warner and Bertha were nothing less than perfect!!! The views are breathtaking and the breeze on top of the hill is amazing. I think renting a car is a must but some prefer a taxi which is an option but driving on the left is easy once you adjust. No MOSQUITOS at the Villa. Thank you Lisa for sharing your beautiful home it made my 50th an absolutely joyous occasion!!

Spectacular vew, from all windows of the villa.

  • 5 of 5

I am 82 years young, every time I came here, I just want to stay here, I sit by the pool, I read my book, and I feel so contented. My family likes all the island has to offer, I like to go to restaurants and taste the local cuisine. It was my birthday this time, and my family hired a local cook, He cooked a typical meal. We sat at the table for 3 hours, eating talking and looking at the ocean in front of us. Unforgettable night. cant weight for next year.

Wow! What an awesome place. Dinners with a view over the ocean and fresh sea air was fantastic.

  • 5 of 5

This was a super nice place. We spent most of our time in the kitchen and outside near the pool. Everything you could need was in the kitchen. It was a very short drive to the beaches. Very short drive to the fish market. The people of st.lucia are very nice people. Overall this was a fantastic vacation for us and our kids. Highly recommend staying here.

Breathtaking view! Great house!

  • 5 of 5

The view from Villa Ivrea is unbeatable! The mountains, the ocean, and Martinique can all be viewed while you swim in the pool.

We traveled with a party of 5 adults and 5 children (ages 1 to 8) and everyone was comfortable and happy. The bedrooms were perfect, there were enough bathrooms for everyone, and the kitchen was well equipped. We booked the guest house for a babysitter that was traveling with us and that was a perfect setup.

The owner, the manager, and the cook/housekeeper were all easy to deal with and answered all of our questions. I highly recommend this villa for your trip to St. Lucia!

Pictures don't do it justice! Absolute breathtaking views and gorgeous well-maintained home!!

  • 5 of 5

I must say that we were blown away by the picturesque views! You can see Martinique in the distance as your sipping a nice cocktail pool-side. The pool was perfect for our party of 6 during the New Year's holiday! The house was truly well-maintained and super upscale! The kitchen and dining table was our focal point as we made breakfast and dinner and played many board games and made wonderful memories! The house sits up on top of Cap Estate so there's a beautiful breeze and no insects/flies at all! Can't say enough about Lisa, Claudette, and Bertha! They have all been very kind and courteous and made us feel at home. We will surely be back without a doubt! I highly HIGHLY recommend this villa if your in St. Lucia! You will NOT be disappointed. Thanks so much Lisa and team!

In addition to the Main House, Villa Ivrea offers a fully independent, one-bedroom Cottage that includes a full kitchen, central air conditioning and a veranda with a splash pool. It enjoys expansive views of the Atlantic Ocean and it is surrounded by an English lawn and a citrus orchard. This newly-built estate is only five minutes away from the St. Lucia Golf & Country Club and its fantastic 18-hole course, set within the scenic rolling hills of Cap Estate.

Other Activities: About 45 minutes by car, going towards Soufriere, you will find the Tet Paul Nature Trail, which is nestled on six acres of lush, verdant land in the farming community of Chateau Belair. The trail is located in the Piton Management Area, Saint Lucia’s World Heritage Site. Hiking the trail is like soaring heavenward on a beautiful, natural staircase. The hike is rated easy to moderate and is roughly 45 minutes long. The trail boasts some of the most spectacular views of the South of the island, the Jalousie Bay, Petit Piton and Gros Piton as well as Martinique and St. Vincent on clear days.

Golf: The Saint Lucia Golf & Country Club (18 holes), located inside Cap Estate, is only 4 minutes away by car. Their rate for a round of golf (including the cart) is US$145 during High Season and players can tee off as early as 6h45. If you would like to know more about a preferred pricing agreement, please give us the exact dates you have in mind, as well as the number of people in your party. Unfortunately, the Jack Nicklaus signature golf course next to Villa Ivrea will not be finished before Fall 2012, but we are sure that once you see it you will want to come back as soon as they open.

A great alternative is the La Toc golf course (9 holes), located 30 minutes south from Villa Ivrea. La Toc is the oldest golf course on the island. It is rather hilly, but the expansive views of the Castries Harbor and the Caribbean Sea make it really worth the trip. Their rate is US$60/round and they have no carts.
