TI ZAN COTTAGE: Close enough to all activities and yet an oasis of tranquility this exotic property with its sensuous style of easy luxury set on an acre of hillside above the sea, combines the best of West Indian architecture with a hint of the east, to create a home of exceptional tropical flair, character and ambiance. With its typical West Indian woodwork, hand made Demarara and louvered windows, vaulted Indonesian style wooden shingled roofs, organic mix of natural stone, marble, wood and glass, burnt orange exterior, “outdoor” shower in lush gardens, this stylish cottage provides a great location for an exceptional, romantic Caribbean experience perfect for two.

Perched on the hillside above the main villa, the views from Ti Zan are even more dramatic. The large covered veranda with its rocking chairs and cane chairs around a round, wooded table, is a perfect place for any meal, or any time.

The deck opens onto a spacious open - plan bedroom with queen size bed, TV with cable, and kitchen tiled in earth toned tumbled marble. The floor to ceiling wooden louvers and large doors are designed to ensure that the drama of the view is fully captured within the cottage at all times. The shower area is unique. Tiled with local river and imported stone, the area is suspended outdoors with large traditional wooden windows flung wide open to embrace the view.

Both the main villa, Zandoli and Ti Zan were designed with a blend of modern and traditional architectural detailing of their roofs, eaves and windows to capture the most of the prevailing Trade Winds to ensure tropical, yet cool comfort year round.

The gardens are tropical and lush, with an infusion of exotic palms, grasses, trees, shrubs, and other tropical species, interspersed with an array of fruit trees .The beauty of the tropical setting has provided the backdrop for the weddings of several happy couples from Europe, Canada and the USA, who have traveled to Zandoli to get married and enjoy their honeymoon, and for return visits.

Ti Zan is within walking distance to the beach and Pigeon Island, a great area for hiking, running, walking and exploring the history of this region. Pigeon Island is a historic National Park and home of St. Lucia’s internationally famous Jazz Festival, now in its 23rd year, and held in May. Sunset “rum punch” cruises, championship golf, tennis, internationally renowned health spas, restaurants, clubs, banks, shopping and a marina with yachts available for charter await, a 5-7 minute ride by car to Rodney bay Marina and Rodney Bay Village.

The cottage is accessed by road, a short section of which (approximately 3 minutes) is unpaved - causing our guests to say that it puts them immediately in the mood for 'Island Life". We usually recommend that our guests opt for an SUV type vehicle if they are interested in renting given that it provides superb access to off-the-beaten track gems in St Lucia.

Staff: Housekeeper half-day service, twice weekly.

About Len Ishmael

I built my home Zandoli, and cottage Ti Zan 12 years ago, on a site which I had waited to be put on the market for as long as I can remember - because of its simply stunning, panoramic views.

Why Len Ishmael chose Cap Estate

The cottage is close to everything - a 5 minute car ride to shopping, banks, restaurants, live music, and within walking distance to the beach. Yet an oasis of tranquility to retreat too, incredibly private, intimate and romantic - with arguably one of the most stunning views on island! It is spacious enough for two, yet incredibly intimate and romantic.

What makes this cottage unique

I fell in love with this site years ago because of its proximity to the island's most fabulous beaches, places of interest, but more than anything else, the quality of its views.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Len,

We had such a lovely time in TI ZAN, two weeks of tranquil relaxation with a beautiful view to wake up to every morning. As a host we could not have asked for you to be more accommodating it was great we could stay the extra night and Velda was wonderful looking after us.

Thanks again for everything.

Spectacular view, did not want to leave,

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as advertised. The view kept us at Ti-Zan three evenings for cocktails and dinner prepared in the kitchen. Family staying in the main house, never saw or heard them.

The housekeeper Velda was great! We were late but she took her time to make sure all our questions were answered.

Rent an SUV with high clearance. The road up is an adventure.

Will be back to rent the big house!

Wunderschönes Haus mit Traumblick

  • 5 of 5

Ein wirklich schönes Haus mit großem überdachten Balkon, ansprechende Einrichtung, Sehr gefallen hat uns die Dusche mit Blick in den Himmel und der gigantische Blick auf Teile der Insel und das Meer.

Das Anwesen findet sich in der Nähe von Stränden, Restaurants und Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, man ist aber dank der Hanglage ganz für sich. Netter Kontakt zu Eigentümer (immer per Email erreichbar) und Personal. Wir kommen gerne wieder.

Hinweis: unbedingt Allrad-Fahrzeug mieten, die Zufahrt zum Anwesen ist damit einfacher.

Idyllisches Cottage mit überwältigendem Ausblick!!

  • 5 of 5

Das versteckt gelegene Cottage bietet einen tollen Ausblick auf Pigeon Island und Rodney Bay. Die letzten 500m der Zufahrt geht es über einen holprigen ausgewaschenen Feldweg, ein SUV sollte man daher schon als Mietwagen nehmen. Das Cottage ist ein mit Schindeln eingedecktes Holzhaus in offener Bauweise, damit der Wind für Kühlung sorgen kann. Die Einrichtung ist ansprechend, vom überdachten Balkon genießt man das tolle Panorama. Die Küchenausstattung ist etwas dürftig. Gut ist dass ein Backofen vorhanden ist. Wenn man selbst kocht, fehlt das eine oder andere aber man kann sich behelfen. Die Amerikaner kochen in der Regel nicht selbst sondern gehen essen.

Zweimal die Woche kommt das Hausmädchen und wechselt die Wäsche. Sehr hilfsbereit.

Unterhalb des Cottage liegt das Haupthaus der Anlage - Zandoli. Es gibt zwar einen Fußweg zum Strand, vermutlich ca. 15 min. Das Cottage liegt aber am Berg, von daher ist der Rückweg etwas anstrengend. Ohne Mietwagen geht es m.E. nicht.

Ti Zan: Romantic Caribbean Hideaway for Two with Dramatic Views!

Welcome to Ti Zan a romantic, intimate hideaway for two, with the most awesome views! The name “Zandoli” means lizard, in the local French based creole spoken by the bi lingual islanders on the beautiful island of St Lucia, and Ti Zan (Little Lizard) is the spacious guest cottage on the larger 1+ acre property of Zandoli (Listing #147628).

Close enough to all activities and yet an oasis of tranquility this exotic property with its sensuous style of easy luxury set on an acre of hillside above the sea, combines the best of West Indian architecture with a hint of the east, to create a home of exceptional tropical flair, character and ambiance. With its typical West Indian woodwork, hand made Demarara and louvered windows, vaulted Indonesian style wooden shingled roofs, organic mix of natural stone, marble, wood and glass, burnt orange exterior, “outdoor” shower in lush gardens, this stylish cottage provides a great location for an exceptional Caribbean experience perfect for two.

Tiled with local river and imported stone, the area is suspended outdoors with large traditional wooden windows flung wide open to embrace the view. The cottage may be booked with the main house or separately.
