Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Cap Estate

Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 4.25 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Albatross Nest epitomizes Caribbean style living with truly breath taking 180-degree views from the property's open terraces. Enjoy magical sunset drinks with views of the island of Martinique in one direction and Pigeon Island National Park and Rodney Bay in the other. Albatross Nest is our dream home - perfect views, distinctive open plan architecture, traditional Caribbean shingled buildings and beautiful tropical garden. Enjoy classic barefoot charm and listen to the sounds of nature and the sea below.

For more details, photos, and comments from previous guests written in our guestbook, visit our website www.albatrossnest.com

The property is secluded and provides perfect privacy in an elevated setting. The villa was designed by architect, Robertson Ward, who designed the original Sandy Lane hotel in Barbados. Three buildings are linked by covered walkways around the large central pool but the villa is only ever rented out to one party/group. The design is perfect for a tropical, outdoor lifestyle and the central pool area spanned by an attractive bridge creates a romantic environment.

Albatross Nest is located in the North West corner of the Cap Estate which is generally regarded as the premier residential area of St. Lucia and is home to several good beaches as well as to the St.Lucia Golf and Country Club.

The property is a very short drive to Anse Du Cap beach. The 18 hole golf course at the St. Lucia Golf and Country Club, snorkeling, scuba diving, kitesurfing, tennis club and an award winning spa, as well as many of the island's best restaurants are all within a ten minute drive.

Maid service is provided 5 days a week.

The gardener is at the property 2 days a week.

Night security is provided.

The property is managed by Kris Wagner who will welcome you to the property and advise on any aspects of your vacation. Kris is on call 7 days a week to ensure that you have a wonderful holiday in St. Lucia. A pre-stocking service is available so that when you arrive at the villa you do not immediately have to go shopping - you can immediately relax,unwind and enjoy the view.

About The Owner

The property belongs to an English couple,Tim and Joanna(Jo)Weil who have been visiting St Lucia for the past 12 years. We fell in love with the island and after a very long search we finally found our dream home which we purchased in December 2009.

We look forward to being able to spend much more time in our beautiful home in St. Lucia when we retire but in the meantime we are making it available for holiday rentals when we are not there.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2009

Why The Owner chose Cap Estate

We have visited St. Lucia for many years and love the island. We fell in love with the stunning view, the lovely garden and the architecture of this property. We enjoy the variety of restaurants and beaches easily accessible from the property.

What makes this villa unique

The property has one of the best sea views we have seen on the island. The sunset views are amazing. The property provides a restful, private location but good restaurants and a variety of activities are available within a ten minute drive.

Guestbook comments from the manager

It’s going to be hard going back to the UK after an amazing stay at Albatross Nest. We could not have imagined a more spectacular view. It feels like a slice of paradise. The sunsets, sky, sea was all so breathtakingly beautiful. We loved the stillness and privacy of it all and were happy to spend all days here.



Everyone made us feel so welcome. I have not come across a nicer group of people in all my travels. All thanks to Mr. Mike for his gentle manner and beautifully tended garden, to Ivy for her warmth and wonderful laugh, Gildas for keeping us safe with no complaints and to Kris for her attention to detail. We would love to come back again.

From the minute we stepped into the property the fabulous view took our breath away. We had dinner a few nights before at he Cliff House (similar view), but this was even better. The layout is very livable with the bedrooms removed from the living area to allow privacy for all.

The drive up was a little daunting, but, to be honest we are not used to left hand driving. We did get reasonably comfortable after a while.

The staff (Ivy, Shane, Michael) were very nice to us and unobtrusive. The villa was well maintained by them.

Some small improvements could be made (broken trash can, chair in need of repair); but, all-in we loved staying here and would not hesitate to return.

Wow ! is what everyone says as they walk in to Villa Albatross Nest and see the sensational views.

  • 5 of 5

Wow ! is what everyone says as they walk in to Villa Albatross Nest and see the sensational views for the first time. Set high on a hill in Cap Estate, the wrap-around balcony gives the villa fabulous 200 degree views over Rodney Bay to the south, Pigeon Island and the Caribbean Sea to the west and the island of Martinique to the north.

We have visited several other Caribbean islands but now look forward to returning to St Lucia next year for an 11th time and to Villa Albatross Nest for a 5th time.

This year we stayed with family and friends for 3 weeks and had another fabulous time.

Villa manager Kris Wagner is a star, nothing is too much trouble, and the villa staff, housekeeper Ivy and gardener Michael, are wonderful.

Heavenly retreat.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived, our stay was perfect. We joined friends who had arrived 10 days before and already looked totally rested and rejuvenated. The views are better than the photos show, and a gentle breeze kept us comfortable day and night. Kris the manager looked after us and advised on anything we needed from car hire, taxis, restaurants, fishing, scuba diving, and much more. She knows the Island so well and has a trusted group of contacts. Our maid Ivy made us smile every day and nothing was too much trouble. Undoubtedly we will recommend Villa Albatross Nest to our friends and hope to return again in the future.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that you had a perfect stay and we hope that you return. We are so lucky to have a wonderful team at Albatross Nest. Kris provides a great service: from pre-stocking the villa, meeting guests on arrival at Albatross Nest to organising with any aspect of your vacation. Ivy is not only a good housekeeper but she has, as you say, a smile every day and she really wants guests to have a wonderful stay.

WOW!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect from start to finish! Probably one of the nicest rentals on the North shore of St. Lucia! We had 3 couples and it worked perfectly! We ended up not wanting to leave the house as the pictures do not do it justice! Kris was wonderful for directions and information. Definitely recommend having a private dinner at the house, snorkeling off Le sport, and a daysail to the Gros Pitons.

Honeymoon Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had the most beautiful honeymoon in St. Lucia. We decided to rent a villa over doing the all-inclusive route because it would force us to explore more of the island. This was definitely the way to go, we got to mix it up with the locals, experience their culture, cuisine, and just their way of life. Albatross Nest offers the best of both worlds. If you want to spend time alone with your significant other and feel like you have the entire island to yourself then Albatross Nest is your place. If you want to be close to Rodney Bay and everything that city life offers, then Albatross Nest is your place. We spent almost every afternoon lounging around the pool drinking Pitons and just starring at the beautiful ocean. Waking up and cooking breakfast in the open air living room will be something we will always remember. Michael the gardener and Odessa the maid are both very personably and pleasant people. We both enjoyed talking with them and hearing their stories. Odessa even taught us how to play dominos one rainy day. Most of the time when looking at pictures about villas and or places to rent, the pictures usually paint a much nice picture. This is NOT the case with Albatross Nest. The villa and views are both exactly as they are portrayed in the pictures. If you thinking about St. Lucia, Albatross Nest will defiantly not disappoint.

Wish we could have stayed longer!

  • 5 of 5

The view from this house was stunning and the staff were incredibly pleasant. Lot's of covered and uncovered outdoor space. If you're looking for a no frills house that encourages relaxation and disconnecting from the every-day, look no further! Hoping our group gets to go back next year.

Two things that were a bit of a bummer - the internet wasn't 100% reliable and we had a problem with ants in the kitchen and bathrooms (even though we did our best to keep the place free of crumbs!)

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that you had a good time , loved the views and want to return. Glad that you found it relaxing but sorry for the frustration over the internet -the connection is usually pretty good but cannot be described as 100% - this seems to be part of Caribbean island life. We know it is very important to guests, as it is to us because we often have to work when we are there. As for ants - we haven't found them a problem in the past unless food has been left out but the problem you had is noted and will be dealt with. We look forward to welcoming you back.

Location

We recommend that you hire a 4x4 car to make the most of your stay. Beaches, restaurants, golf course, tennis courts and Pigeon Island are all within 15 minutes.

We highly recommend a trip into the rainforest and zip-lining for the more adventurous or a tram ride into the forest if the zip-lining does not appeal.

A boat trip is the perfect way to see the island and it is possible to join others on a large boat or to hire something smaller. Boats trips leave from Rodney Bay Marina which is within 15 minutes. Trips vary in length and cost but we enjoy going down the west coast to The Pitons stopping off at Marigot Bay and snorkelling from the boat at various bays along the coast.

Nearer home on those days when you want to do more than relax by the pool we recommend a trip to Pigeon island, to look around and investigate the history, relax on the beach and perhaps to eat at the restaurant there.

A range of watersports are available on nearby beaches including kitesurfing with excellent tuition.

Kris Wagner, the villa manager is able to help with sightseeing arrangements.
