|Minimum Stay||1 - 14 nights|
Perched atop the exclusive Cap Estate, Villa Kessi presents sweeping views of St. Lucia’s landscape. You’ll feel positively royal as you survey your kingdom from the Atlantic Ocean, across lush green countryside to the Caribbean Sea. Kessi’s contemporary design and layout display the best of island architecture: vaulted ceilings, wooden flooring, long veranda, jalousie windows, plus wooden balconies featuring hand-carved details.
A tiled deck presents the perfect location for soaking up sun from a chaise longue. Cool off in the tranquil infinity pool that offers stunning views of the island’s only 18-hole golf course. A long veranda runs the width of the house and its cozy rattan lounge set is ideal for enjoying a good book in the shade: the adjacent hammock is also a tempting choice. When the cocktail hour arrives, gather your guests around the regulation billiard table for a quick tournament.
Inside, the main room’s open plan attracts those famous island trade winds, with a little help from large French doors and windows. The living room area, complete with tropical decor, is ideal for socializing or spending a quiet moment contemplating the view. The modern kitchen will get your culinary creative juices flowing. Start your day at the charming breakfast bar and finish it around an elegant dining table.
Two of Kessi’s three bedrooms are found on the main floor. The first has a huge Super King size bed and the second, bunk beds, making it ideal for children. Both open onto the veranda. The Master suite occupies the upper floor and is luxuriously furnished with a four-poster Super King size bed and wooden louver windows. It opens onto a private balcony with a panoramic view. All bedrooms feature en-suite bathrooms and air conditioning.
Cap Estate puts you minutes away from a wealth of adventure. The island’s best golf course is your neighbor and there are several sandy beaches nearby. You’re only 4 miles out of Rodney Bay, where you’ll find upscale shops, fine dining and a marina where you can rent a sailboat or organize excursions to Pitons or Sulphur Springs.

We enjoyed our temporary home away from home for every reason possible -- beautiful location, the welcome meal, a very well maintained home and fabulous support services from both the Villa Manager and housekeeper (especially the housekeeper -- her name is Lucetta). and to top it off, we could not have asked for better weather. It was a fabulous week...was very sorry to leave. Thank you Luxury Retreats!
Our vacation overall was amazing. One of our favorite parts was coming home every night to our amazing villa after a long day of activities and exploring St Lucia. Sitting on the couch and looking out at the infinity pool and gorgeous view were just priceless. It was so nice feeling at home in a different country. Lucelta, our housekeeper, was also amazing. She was so sweet and helpful. Even though we are back in our apartment in New York, we also talk about how we miss "our home."
Kessi is a beautiful villa in the hills of the Cap Estate, away from the giant resorts just down the road. If you're a get-away-from-it-all kind of vacationer, Villa Kessi does not disappoint. The meticulously maintained house, along with a private pool, has just about everything you need to lounge around and take in the sunlight.
Lu, the housekeeper, is a sweet and generous woman, eager to share her home-grown vegetables and local breads. She'll also teach you Patois if you want to learn a few new phrases. And she's more than happy to cook meals, as long as you provide the ingredients.
When you're ready to explore the island, North Shore attractions are just a short drive away. Rodney Bay, Gros Islet and other destinations are more than enough to keep you busy for a few days.
This is an open-air villa, so if you're addicted to A/C and can't stand the occasional mosquito bite, this might not be your place.
Villa Kessi was awesome. It was clean and our housekeeper was a great help. You can have the shutters open during the day to get a wonderful breeze, but please remember to shut them when the sun goes down because you will have ever bug known to man sleeping with you. I cannot say enough good things about this villa..! I loved it11
Such a beautiful home we felt so welcome and comfortable. The house it self it's a beautiful retreat & having "Lu" was sure A+.can not wait to be back next year for 2 weeks;)
Villa Kessi is truly lovely as is the house keeper, Lou who maintains it and the Villa Manager looking after it, she was very professional. We stayed between the Pitons for our first week on the Island and were sorry we hadn't booked the complete time in Cap Estate at this home. We were originally concerned that the Villa appeared to have no ocean views but though they are a bit distant it infact does.
The 1 concern we had was in getting directions to the Villa from Luxury Retreats, as we had arrived in St Lucia prior to our stay and had our own vehicle. No matter how hard we tried, emails, phone calls, phone messages it was only 1 or 2 days before we were to begin our stay at the Villa that we finally received useful information. Needless to say, that by that time we were pretty upset and very concerned, as we had booked the holiday 9 months in advance and completed all of the forms from Luxury Retreats as required in plenty of time...Thankfully it ended on a happy note.
