Coco Villa is located on the Malgretout Road in Soufriere, St.
Lucia, West Indies. It is on a steep hillside above Malgretout
Beach and is surrounded by coconut palms, mango trees, bamboo,
plantains, bananas, and many beautiful flowering plants. The views
from all rooms are spectacular with the Petit Piton mountain rising
2000 feet from the sea.
The house faces south and west with the 30ft pool
directly outside. There is a large Barbados clay tile terrace
on one end of the pool and a large wooden deck with a shade pavilion
at the other end. There are no other houses visible except in
the far distance at the end of Malgretout Beach close to the Piton.
The villa is L-shaped with the master bedroom facing
south to the mountain and the dining/living room and the second
bedroom facing west to the sea. The kitchen and bathrooms are
at the back of the house.
The master bedroom is large and spacious with a
king size bed, carved red cedar chest of drawers, two bedside
tables, standing cheval mirror, antique table and a closet for
linens and hanging clothes. All the windows and doors are painted
white with pale green trim. There are two windows to the north,
two to the west, and a large stone arch opening with sheer white
curtains hanging from a bamboo pole. The view through the arch
looks over the pool and mountain. All of the doors and windows
at Belle Coco have iron grillwork and wooden louver shutters and
doors. There are ceiling fans in the bedrooms. The bathroom adjoining
the master bedroom has a garden next to the shower. All of the
linens and towels are of excellent quality and large pool towels
The second bedroom is smaller in size, but still
has a king size bed, red cedar chest of drawers, wall lights for

of the coconut trees to the sea. The adjoining bathroom has closets
with shelves and room for hanging clothes.
The living/dining area has a dining table for four
at one end, and two seven foot settees with Ian Mankin fabric
at the other end. The high ceiling and large wall spaces are perfect
for the Indian and kilim rugs and original oil paintings on the
walls. The floors throughout the house and terrace are Barbados
The kitchen is painted green and white and is completely
equipped with a large fridge, gas stove, food processor, toaster,
