Smugglers Nest is one of the finest villas in the whole Caribbean and was extensively described in one of the issues of Architectural Digest. Smugglers Nest's tropical garden is a botanical paradise with many different kinds of palms, flowers, plants and trees and is definitely the most romantic place for honeymooners on the island of St. Lucia. Smugglers Nest is very secluded and easily accessible villa is not visible from the road and is perched on the hillside above Smugglers Cove with unparalleled views of the ocean and the coastline from all the rooms. Smugglers Cove has a sandy beach and the reefs provide one of the most interesting places to snorkel in St. Lucia. A championship 18 hole golf course is just minutes away by car.
Smugglers Nest combines all the essential elements of a dream home in the Caribbean, from its stunning architecture and finishes to its wonderful location and its beautiful tropical landscaped gardens with a network of footpaths that allow for leisurely strolls. You can rest for a drink in one of the two delightful gazebos, one of which looks out over the sea, the other one is tucked away in the garden. Or, have lunch on one of the many terraces around the house. Last, but not least, you should have your sunset drink on the lower deck which provides marvellous views of Pigeon Island against the striking Caribbean sunset.
Smugglers Nest is designed as an open plan, so it can benefit from the cooling tropical breeze. It is imaginatively furnished with antique Indonesian furniture and artefacts set against a dazzling white background giving a unique blend of the old and the sophisticated.
Smugglers Nest has two lovely airy living areas. One for lounging, with the other serves as a TV room with cable television. The open plan dining room is adjacent to a well appointed kitchen and a series of open patios. A cosy study equipped with desktop computer and a conveniently located bathroom completes this house.
The master bedroom has a king-sized bed with unusual bamboo posters draped with a net. There are small patios off this room giving a 180 degree view of the ocean. Complementing this bedroom is an ensuite bathroom with the privacy to enjoy ' a bath for two with a view', a separate shower and dressing room.
Bedroom 2 has an interesting gallery with the bedroom on a lower level, opening on to its own large private patio. This has a double bed and a large ensuite shower room.
A large crystal clear swimming pool interchanges with the sea and is nestled below the house and affords views out over the ocean.
