The route to Villa VNS takes you through a blessedly off-the-beaten-track St. Barth neighborhood, the hilltop region of Petite Saline. You approach the property by ascending a road from the island's interior, so when you arrive at Villa VNS you are stunned to see that you have found your way to a home with one of the best sea-views on the island. Far from any of the island's thoroughfares, this property offers peaceful seclusion while still being only a few minutes from Saline beach and the village of Lorient.
The long driveway meanders up under a canopy of flambouyant trees to the entrance to the villa, where a short double staircase leads you to a wide arched doorway. Villa VNS is constructed in a modified classic Caribbean style, with a traditional white clapboard exterior and a clean modern interior. You enter directly into a spacious central living area, the walls adorned with an admirable art collection and the floor made of gently worn marble tiles that calls to mind a stately Tuscan palazzo. Leave the front door open behind you, and a gentle breeze flows through from the sea to the flowering hillside behind the house. The wide deck reaches out around both sides of the oval infinity pool. Teak wood and white canvas umbrellas create an atmosphere of perfect tropical relaxation, with plentiful seating and an outdoor dining table for eight.
To the left of the main living area are two of Villa VNS's four bedrooms, each with a king-size bed, flatscreen television and its own limestone-tiled bathroom with Dornbracht fixtures. Both bedrooms offer vistas out over the ocean, the second one boasting views to the north and the west from its vantage point at the corner of the house. A few steps across the terrace, you have a reading room with sixteen windows and doors on four sides, open to the sea breeze and providing comfortable seating and a magnificent view, just waiting for you to take some time out and relax.
To the other side of the living area is the third bedroom, equal in size to the others and offering a four-poster bed, a stone-tiled bathroom with dual vanities, and a view on two sides. Adjacent to the living room and completely open to the terrace is a well-equipped and superbly designed chef's kitchen, with a Lacanche range and double oven, stone countertops, and SubZero refrigerators.
As captivating as Villa VNS is so far, there is much more to discover. Follow the stairs down from the east side of the deck and you will find a sheltered outdoor dining area with seating for twelve, a wet bar and ample prep space, and an enormous Weber charcoal grill. Thinking of inviting friends for an after-beach barbecue? You cannot do better than this. A few steps further down the hillside you discover an independent bungalow with its own bedroom, well-appointed bath, full kitchen and a sun deck overlooking Lorient Bay. With a separate parking area and entrance, this space offers an added level of comfort and seclusion.
Villa VNS combines the personal touch of easy living with unparalleled views and an ideal location.
