Overview

About the property

A 3 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms Property With Incredible Views In Cap Estate

'In Xanadu did Kubla Khan a stately pleasure dome decree.....' Samuel Coleridge 1797

The unique design of this magnificent villa was inspired by the famous domed City of pleasure called Xanadu created by the Mongol ruler Kubla Khan in China during the 12th century. Standing proudly on a sea facing hillside for many years it is still as fresh and interesting today and has recently undergone an extensive renovation whilst preserving the character of this tasteful and fascinating study in concrete and stonework engineering. The domes of the villa dominate the hillside on St Lucia's northern tip in the exclusive residential area of the old sugar plantation of Cap Estate.

In good visibility the nearby larger Island of Martinique is clearly seen to the north and this makes an impressive backdrop to the Caribbean sea view both during the day and at night.

The high south west facing terraces of Xanadu provide beautiful views of nearby Pigeon Island and St Lucia's Caribbean coastline and and is the perfect place to enjoy a sundowner while watching the setting sun. These Caribbean sunsets are famous for their beauty and you may even witness the elusive green flash when the sky is clear. The Villa is surrounded by nearly two acres of gardens that slope gently away from the house and are home to coconut palms and tropical plants.

Nearby is St Lucia's Golf Resort and Country Club. This is a challenging and enjoyable 18 hole par 71 golf course.

There are nearby beautiful white sand beaches catering for all manner of water sports including safe swimming and snorkeling, scuba diving, hobby cat sailing, water skiing, para gliding and wind surfing.

Sports fishing and deep sea fishing enthusiasts will soon find what they want.

When the present owners bought the Villa for them it was love at first sight. They were captivated by the elevated position and the 270 degree views of the ocean and coastline. The gentle sea breezes temper the tropical heat and make relaxing by the poolside a real pleasure. The pool extends into the domed living area and has its own bar stools in the water to enjoy that rum punch or local fruit juice.

The villa has three spacious bedroom suites arranged round the pool terrace, all with modern bathrooms and wonderful uncluttered views of the ocean and gardens. They have nautically themed names. They all have their own private separate access direct from the terrace. There is a separate maid's room below the house.

'Captain's Quarters'--- Master bedroom

This air conditioned bedroom suite is elevated with a large rain forest shower room below and has a separate balcony overlooking the pool terrace and ocean views to Martinique. An impressive four poster king size bed adds to the wow factor of this domed ceiling circular bedroom. It has a shaving point in the bathroom and hair dryer is provided.

'Ocean'—Queen bedroom

Step out of this lovely bedroom and the swimming pool is 3 strides away. Large windows face the ocean and the Island of Martinique and the gardens. It has a four poster queen size bed and air conditioning and large ceiling fan. There is a small safe and hair dryer. In the bathroom there is a shaving point.

'Bosuns' ---- King bedroom

This the largest bedroom suite with an enormous double bed and an additional separate single bed. It is air conditioned and also has a large ceiling fan and opens on to the pool terrace. It has a small safe, shaver point in the bathroom and hairdryer.

'The Dome'

This huge circular domed living area is the center piece of the Villa and its five large bi-fold doors open to a circular terrace giving the option of the outdoor living that is the essence of life in St Lucia and the Caribbean. The completely circular area with it's compass rose floor has a unique atmosphere and gives access to the swimming pool bar which is partly inside the dome. Large plants shrive in this sheltered room and give a truly botanical feel. There is a dedicated television area.

The Dome leads to the curved kitchen area with completely modern equipment and corian work surfaces and double sink. It is claimed that no where in the Caribbean is the view from the kitchen sink so spectacular. The historical Pigeon Island lies below and the beautiful coastline of the west of the Island stretch away and at night the lights of the town of the town of Gros Islet and marina village at Rodney Bay add to the magical view. The kitchen has a powerful four burner Italian cooker with large oven and grill and a huge double fridge freezer and ice maker. Other equipment include a microwave oven, dishwasher, toaster and kettle. The kitchen doors lead on to the barbecue terrace and sheltered outside dining area.

A daily maids service is provided if required and security services ensure your stay is safe and enjoyable.

Regretfully the villa is not considered small children friendly (under the age of 10 years) and no pets are permitted. Smoking anywhere inside the villa is not permitted.

Amazing vacation

This place is absolutely amazing!!!

We went to celebrate my parents 50th wedding anniversary and it exceeded all our expectations.

The staff was so easy to work with and very helpful.

Viola was an absolute gem, wish I could have brought her home with me!!!

If you’re thinking of making a trip to Saint Lucia, this property is perfect!!

We will definitely be returning!!!

Beautiful home with amazing views

  • 4 of 5

This property was amazing. From Kris the property manager,and Viola the housekeeper. We had everything we needed. We enjoyed the pool everyday. Day trips to the volcano , mud bathes and waterfalls to zip lining and a catamaran cruise to the Pitons. Saint Lucia is a beautiful island.

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

What an exceptional home! Villa Xanadu was just as wonderful as the description promised. It was really well maintained - there was absolutely nothing to complain about. Kris, the manager, had everything planned and organized for us (food and car upon our arrival) and had many great suggestions for our stay. Viola, the housekeeper, kept the house immaculate and made our life very easy.

We loved the house so much that we did not venture out very much. It was just nice to relax around the pool, having a drink in the water or sitting on the edge and taking in the beautiful island and ocean views. We did enjoy going to Pigeon Island, climbing up to the fort and the higher hill. The views were well worth it, but good shoes are required. We also loved the small beach inside Pigeon Island Park and its quaint beach bar Jambe de Bois.

For dinners, we would recommend The Cliff and The Naked Fisherman which are a 3-5 minute drive away.

We could have easily stayed another week and would come back in a heartbeat. We highly recommend Villa Xanadu!!!

Excellent villa with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 10-day holiday staying at Villa Xanada. The villa is in a fantastic location and provides fabulous views through almost 180 degrees, with Pigeon Island and Rodney Bay to the south and (on a clear day) the island of Martinique to the north. Most evenings we just sat on the terrace and admired the beautiful sunset.

There is a very well-equipped kitchen, good outdoor furniture on the terraces (which is where we spent most of our time) and the rather unique dome, with its indoor/outdoor pool. As there were just two of us, we only needed the Master bedroom - that is spacious and comfortable with a large ensuite bathroom below.

Kris, the property manager, was very helpful right from the start of the booking process. As well as handling the booking of Villa Xanada, she also organised the car-hire, stocked the food cupboards with essentials ready for us, and was there to greet us when we arrived. We also took up her recommendation for a boat trip to the Pitons, which was also excellent. Viola, the housekeeper, keeps the villa very clean and tidy.

Villa Xanada will certainly be our number one choice when we next visit St. Lucia! Thanks for allowing us to share your superb property for our stay.

Paradise in St. Lucia

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this remarkable property so much. Nestled above Rodney Bay, we had incredible views of the ocean, Pigeon Island and even Martinique. The set-up is perfect for one couple or a large group. Thanks to Kris for helping with the particulars and logistics -- not one detail was overlooked. Thanks also to Viola who took such good care of us and the property.

One of the most enchanting islands on earth, Saint Lucia seems to have been designed for romance. Its lush mountainous interior, filled with hummingbirds and cascading waterfalls, combined with palm fringed coves and warm azure waters create a magical backdrop for any occasion. This tropical paradise is further enhanced by a charming people and fascinating history.
