Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in St Barthelemy - VILLA GRAND VISTA
Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
Just about every villa on St Barth claims to have a fabulous view and for that reason alone the island is truly special, views do abound. Some are narrow, some clipped by terrain, some expansive, but sweeping is a bit harder to come by. Add to that an original design, imported materials, a private art collection and beautiful appointments and the potentials diminish quickly. Then add privacy and voila! - there is one - VILLA GRAND VISTA.
Wrapping around St. Barth's tallest peak lies this chic sprawling villa offering a breathtaking view from each of its three high-beamed bungalows. The main bungalow features one of the largest loaded gourmet kitchens with an enormous Lacanche stove (with pot-filler, oven, deep-fat fryer, simmer plate, electric and gas cooktops). The spacious dining area includes one indoor and two outdoors offering both sunny and shaded eating and entertaining areas.
Four arched double French doors provide the sunken living room with a direct view of the infinity pool & emerald sea below. Each bungalow and its separate rooms are uniquely designed in vibrant colors and textures and beautifully appointed. Because the villa is located in a rural area, it offers complete privacy and seclusion. Character, detail, and an unrivaled view define Villa Grand Vista.
The master suite, located in its own bungalow with private steps to the pool has a plush leather bed and an enormous bay window room, and spacious bathroom. The bathroom, completely covered with tiny blue and white-gold mosaic Italian tiles, has a shower and free-form tub where you can take in yet another view of the ocean.
Winding around the master suite is the guest bungalow and outdoor kitchenette. Both guest rooms have CA king beds and en-suite bathrooms.
Guests, rental agents, hotel owners and service personnel, who have seen hundreds of villas on St Barth, agree that Villa Grand Vista is truly magnifique!

Why Karen or Paige chose St Barthelemy
My daughter and I built this villa after getting a fabulous opportunity to snatch a piece of unrivaled property. I still have the original sketches I made of the villa concept and room designs.
What makes this villa unique
Really, it's the view. It is so vast, seemingly endless sea. It's so funny to think of the houses near the ocean in Santa Cruz trying so hard to build a small terrace on the SW corner of the second floor so that they could see a sliver of water and honestly say they had an ocean view! Here it is nearly impossible not to see ocean and it's so clear - no smog, no haze, no fog.
