ELEGANT VILLA LOCATED ON THE GROS PITON, WORLD HERITAGE SITE

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Soufriere - Maison des 'Etoiles

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Maison des' Etoiles is a three-sided home built of Greenheart wood native to the rain forest and volcanic rock which bubbled to the surface millions of years ago. If you love to go natural, this is the vacation home of your dreams. The home is artistically decorated with carvings of local but world-renowned artists which blend into the rich deep wood grains of the Greenheart. This is a truly unique home which you will only experience once in a lifetime.

The expansive view from the villa's multiple decks unveil one of the world's famous World Heritage Sites, consisting of the heavenly blue Caribbean Sea, the western cliff of the Gros Piton and the majestic Pitie Piton. The two Piton Mountains are the symbols for St. Lucia and Maison des' Etoiles is enveloped in this spectacularly beautiful mountainous setting.

The home has an expansive living room with a volcanic waterfall as its central theme, one master bedroom with its own sitting deck and full bathroom, and two guest rooms which share a second bathroom. The second bedroom also has its own sitting area and spectacular view. All bedrooms enjoy a panoramic view of the Caribbean Sea and Sky. A full-sized dining room seats eight as candlelight flickers in the light ocean breeze. The bathrooms are a combination of volcanic rock and natural wood. Enjoy a sizzling hot shower while hearing the birds singing outside. There is a third-story tower which can be used as a sitting area or sleeping area. At night reach out and touch the personal star you are making a wish on.

We took our boat from Ohio all the way down to St Lucia. We love adventure.

Owner/ Property Manager purchased this house in 2004

Love at first sight. When we where looking on the Island and the minute we walked through the door we knew this was a special place and we where meant to own.

Calm, peaceful and constant exotic scenery.

Open concept tree house -- romantic, relaxing, stunning

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 02-Mar-2012
  • Date of Stay: Feb 2012
The photos barely are able to do justice to this jaw-dropping and totally stunning house. The lookout tower provides some of the best Piton views on the whole island and the three-sided house affords cool breezes and unrestricted ocean views. The house is a short drive or walk from Jalousie's lovely Sugar Beach and hop away from the trailhead of Gros Piton nature trail. The staff, Mary and Pious, we're incredibly kind, making our stay as enjoyable as possible. There are a wealth of daytime activities to take advantage of, as well as swishy dining options within a short drive.

We rented the house with two other couples but in the future would probably just rent for a total of 4 people. One bedroom is a bit of a pass through, which is probably great for families and children, but a little less than optimal for couples. That said, we still had a blast!

With permission, we hosted our rehearsal dinner at the house, welcoming 20+ guests to enjoy the beauty of Maison and take part in a fun filled feast. The house and staff were generous and accomodating to the extreme and the event was a total success.

The swinging chairs and poolside lounging inspire relaxation and the open concept kitchen made shared cooking responsibilities a joy. The sound system is also great, so don't forget to pack some music!

The weather was perfect, bugs were not a factor, and every day waking up in Maison was a thrill. The only thing I would caution is that if you have mobility or vision issues, this is probably not the house for you. The steps and numerous and uneven, challenging during the day and increasingly tricky at night.

Overall, an awesome, epic time, we hope to return again! A+!

Owner's Response: We are very pleased that your dinner went off well. You are correct and we tell people that the house is not good for people who are either mobility challenged or for very young children. Hope to see you again in the near future and thank you for posting your thoughts regarding the house and the staff.

Romantic and Awe Inspiring Views!

As members of the travel industry, we have had the opportunity to visit many beautiful places. In October of 2011 we experienced the perfect romantic getaway. Their is no comparison for this property!
We had a remarkably relaxing and luxurious stay in an amazing villa with premium views!
Almost every tropical tree held some type of fruit. Beach access close by (a very relaxing walk down to the shore,and ride back up!)to snorkel and lounge with drinks at the local resort property.
We were not bothered by insects nor bad weather as the villa faces away from the elements. An idea location for adults that can maneuver steps and inclines.
We will come back! What a dream vacation!

Owner's Response: David and Sheri we are glad the Villa was everything you expected. Pictures do not do it justice since they can not capture the relaxation and luxury that you feel when you stay.

Amazing House ... Best View on the Island

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 07-Feb-2012
  • Date of Stay: Jan 2011
I spent five days here with two friends in January 2012. I believe that the villa was built by the same person who built Ladera / Dashene in the 1970s. It's really an architectural marvel, and the view is simply stunning. The staff (Mary and Pius) were great and were super-sensitive to our preferences. They would come in just as we were leaving each day, and would leave just as we were returning that night. (They live nearby.) They kept the place impeccable.

A bridge was out (since Hurricane Thomas), and so the drive from the villa to Soufriere took about 25 minutes. You'll want detailed driving directions, since there are few road signs. (The house is above the trailhead for the Gros Piton trail.) Later in our trip, we arranged for a water taxi (Solomon) to pick us up at the bottom of our hill (by Jalousie), which is a (very steep) 3-minute drive downhill from the villa. The water taxi took the three of us to Anse Chastanet round trip for $60. You pay on return passage, and he picked us up at the time we requested. We found the water taxi more enjoyable than the driving. You can get a weekly pass at Anse Chastanet for $105, which includes snorkeling, kayaking, chairs, umbrella and beach food service. We liked Anse better than Jalousie beach, which was a little too quiet for our liking. (And we like quiet.) Jalousie is 5 minutes from the villa, though, and has cool powdery white sand.

The villa is about 1,000 feet (40%) up Gros Piton and looks across to Petit Piton. Because it is open-air, you should expect tree lizards, moths and a friendly bat who hangs out by the chandelier at night and eats all the moths. The bat was very respectful, though, and never touched us. He'd leave once we'd dim the lights. With mosquito nets over the beds (and a little Deet at night as a precaution), I didn't get a single bug bite the entire week. They just were not a problem, even being outside in the tropics.

There are lots of steps in this multi-level villa, so it wouldn't be best for those with disabilities or for small children. The view from the tower is incredible, though. Overall, I know I'll be back. It's just too unique to stay anywhere else. I can't wait to return!

Owner's Response: We are glad that you enjoyed the Villa. We and our staff try our hardest to be sensitive to our guest wishes. We hope to see you again.

What a lovely place! We stayed here in February for our 10th anniverary and have never had such a wonderful vacation. We brought plenty of bug spray, but needed none of it, nor did we use the netting on the bed. The sounds of nature were all around - it was like sleeping in a treehouse.

Mary comes in to clean and cook every day, which is wonderful, but the real treat for us was Mary's son, Pious. We had a rental car, but the roads are narrow, winding and steep. Driving in St Lucia is not for the faint of heart! By the middle of the week, we had decided to let Pious do the driving so we could relax. He is pleasant, kind, and all-around wonderful.

My husband hiked to the top of the Gros Piton. The beginning of the trail is walking distance from the house. He tells me it was a strenuous hike, but the views were worth it.

Personally, I can't imagine any views more wonderful than the views from this house. The view from every room is spectacular. Every night, we went up to the tower to watch the stars. I have never seen such a display. Astronomy buffs might never go to sleep.

I would highly recommend this house to anyone who wants to re-connect with nature or with each other. We will definately be back!

We stayed at the house for 9 days in February with 3 children, and had a fabulous time.The house is unique and the views are absolutely amazing. To sleep 'outdoors' was great fun and very comfortable.The bugs didn't bother us too much but insect repellent & mosquito nets are necessary!I could have sat & looked at the view from the house for the rest of my life quite happily.The four wheel drive vehicle recommended was essential & the journeys up & down the hill were an adventure not for the faint-hearted! I would recommend the house to anyone who loves the beauty of nature, and peace.
