This magnificent home is one of the finest in the whole Caribbean
and was extensively described in one of the issues of Architectural
Digest. Its lush tropical garden is a botanical paradise with
many different kinds of palms, flowers, plants and trees and is
definitely the most romantic place for honeymooners on the island
of St. Lucia.
This very secluded and easily accessible villa is
not visible from the road and is perched on the hillside above
Smugglers Cove with unparalleled views of the ocean and the coastline
from all the rooms. Smugglers Cove has a sandy beach and the reefs
provide one of the most interesting places to snorkel in St. Lucia.
A championship 18 hole golf course is just minutes away by car.
Smugglers Nest combines all the essential elements
of a dream home in the Caribbean, from its stunning architecture
and finishes to its wonderful location and its beautiful tropical
landscaped gardens with a network of footpaths that allow for
leisurely strolls. You can rest for a drink in one of the two
delightful gazebos, one of which looks out over the sea, the other
one is tucked away in the garden. Or, have lunch on one of the
many terraces around the house. A large crystal clear swimming
pool interchanges with the sea and is nestled below the house
and affords views out over the ocean. Last, but not least, you
should have your sunset drink on the lower deck which provides
marvelous views of Pigeon Island against the striking Caribbean
The house is designed as an open plan, so it can
benefit from the cooling tropical breeze. It is imaginatively
furnished with antique Indonesian furniture and artifacts set
against a dazzling white background giving a unique blend of the
old and the sophisticated.

lounging, with the other serves as a TV room with cable television.
The open plan dining room is adjacent to a well
appointed kitchen and a series of open patios.
The master bedroom has a king-sized bed with unusual
bamboo posters draped with a net. There are small patios off this
room giving a 180 degree view of the ocean. Complementing this
bedroom is an ensuite bath room with the privacy to enjoy ' a
bath for two with a view', a separate shower and
The second bedroom has an interesting gallery with
the bedroom on a lower level, opening on to its own large private
patio. This has a double bed and a large ensuite shower room.
