Smuggler's Nest's lush, 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.

This very secluded and easily accessible villa is not visible from the road and is perched on the hillside above Smuggler's Cove with unparalleled views of the ocean and the coastline from all the rooms. Smuggler's 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.

Smuggler's Nest combines all the essential elements of a dream home in the Caribbean, from its stunning architecture and finishes to its wonderful location and beautiful, tropically-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. A large crystal-clear swimming pool interchanges with the sea and is nestled below the house affording views out over the ocean. Last, but not least, you should have your sunset drink on the lower deck which provides marvelous views of Pigeon Island against the striking Caribbean sunset.

The house is designed as an open plan, so it can benefit from the cooling tropical breeze. It is imaginatively furnished with antique Indonesian furniture and artifacts set against a dazzling white background, giving a unique blend of the old and the sophisticated.

There are two lovely, airy living areas. One for lounging, while 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.

The master bedroom has air-conditioning and 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 en-suite bath room with the privacy to enjoy a bath for two with a view, a separate shower and dressing room.

The second bedroom 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 en-suite shower room. A cozy study and a conveniently-located bathroom completes this house.
