This unique Villa was built to capture St. Lucia's famous trade winds; the house is very open and utilizes numerous architectural elements of traditional Caribbean villas.
Air-conditioning, ceiling fans, and traditional netting are in each of the three oversized, open bedrooms. The first floor has two bedrooms, both of which have pool views. The end bedroom has two twin beds and a daybed. The second bedroom has two twin beds. Each bedroom includes an en suite bathroom with a shower. The master bedroom encompasses the entire second floor. The master suite is beautifully furnished and features a king-size bed. It also has a unique shower room overlooking the mountains. There are two patios; the larger one has a wonderful view of St. Lucia's southern coast and beaches; the smaller balcony provides a beautiful view of the ocean and island of Martinique.
A covered veranda runs the entire length of the house, and includes a welcoming seating area and an outdoor dining area. The extra large swimming pool is encircled by a tiled deck, and is well equipped with loungers and umbrellas inviting you to enjoy lazy days in the sun. Inside, you will find a spacious "great room" with vaulted ceilings (the beams were obtained from St. Lucia Forestry), a big screen TV, cable television and DVD. Adjacent to this is a formal dining room. A large, modern, fully equipped kitchen complete with an outside covered barbeque patio invites you to enjoy a variety of dining experiences. Wild Orchid is fully landscaped, and contains mature gardens with a wide variety of tropical plants and flowers. As a result of this, it has become a haven for many species of butterflies and wild birds; they will delight you with their colors, songs, bathing activities and energy.
