This three-storey, spacious Villa is located on a hill with a 270 degree view of the Caribbean Sea and Atlantic Ocean. It is situated at one of the northern most points of St. Lucia, and provides spectacular panoramic views of the northwest Coast, the historic National Park of Pigeon Island, the beautiful French island of Martinique and the majestic Mount Gimie.
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. A covered veranda runs the entire length of the house, and includes a welcoming seating area and an outdoor dining area. The extra large heated swimming pool is encircled by a tiled deck, and is well equipped with dining table, loungers, umbrellas, and a flower trimmed trellis. Inside, you will find a spacious 'great room' with vaulted ceilings, a big screen TV, cable television and DVD and stereo. 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.
