This charming, West Indian great house embraces a 40-foot private pool and overlooks the sea with a stunning view of the Salt River Bay where Columbus arrived with his fleet in 1493. Enter through double gates of solid mahogany to a spacious outdoor gallery surrounding the custom-shaped pool. Here, catch up on your reading in a colonial planter’s chair under the shade of palm trees, or stretch out on one of three decadently cushioned, lounge beds and enjoy the sun or the stars.
- Pool with large deck and seating including two cushioned cabanas.
- Poolside gazebo for outdoor dining.
- Poolside bar with French doors and access to main house.
- Master suite with sitting area and wet bar.
- All bedrooms open onto pool deck via French doors.
- Twin beds can be converted to kings.
The villa’s bedrooms all face the pool through individual French doors and are decorated in subtle tropical hues with tasteful classic West Indian-style furnishings. Rooms feature high, beamed ceilings, traditionally employed in island residences for centuries, and throughout the house are finely-crafted mahogany furnishings inspired by the plantation era, including hand-made local tiles in Danish yellow. Look closely—you’ll see inlaid accents carved from authentic ballast brick brought to the island on 19th century sailing ships that carried sugar and rum back to Europe.
From the great room or the pool area, watch sailors come and go on the great bay below—an outdoor museum designated as the Salt River Bay National Historical Park and Ecological Preserve. Tour the park’s Visitor Contact Station, enjoy a refreshing swim at its white sandy beach visible from your villa, or stop by the marina to arrange a guided kayak expedition through the bay.
