Wild Orchid’s name foreshadows the natural splendor you’ll discover at this grand, St. Lucia villa. Located in the hills of the exclusive Cap Estate at the northernmost tip of the island, this unique home, surrounded by lush green palms, bright bougainvillea and mature gardens, offers an inspired panoramic view of the Caribbean Sea and Atlantic.
Flower-trimmed trellises skirt the wide, tiled terrace where you can take your pick of cushioned sunbathing chairs. A dip in the immense pool will cool you down again. Grill fresh seafood on the outdoor barbecue and enjoy it at a round table on the terrace. A few steps up, on the veranda, an 8 person dining table is the perfect for dinner al fresco.
Lofty French doors and windows allow St. Lucia’s famous trade winds to circulate freely inside. A bright, tropical color palette of turquoise, fuchsia, yellow and green is daubed liberally on furnishings and decor throughout the villa. The cozy living room opens on 3 sides under vaulted ceilings of local wood. A second living area is found on the veranda and a modern, fully-equipped kitchen is the perfect place to create memorable meals.
10 guests can sleep comfortably at Wild Orchid. Each of the 5 bedrooms is decorated with charming island fabrics and include air conditioning. The master bedroom occupies the entire second floor and features 2 private decks with views of both land and water. 2 other bedrooms are located on the first floor, each with its own en-suite bathroom. A separate apartment houses the last 2 rooms with a shared double-sink bathroom.
When you’re ready to explore, Cap Estate’s privacy quickly gives way to the hub of St. Lucia’s social and cultural life: Rodney Bay. It’s just a 10 minute drive to Gros Islet where you can shop, dine or just watch the boats go in and out of the marina. Nearby Pigeon Island is a great place to lay on the beach or do a little snorkeling. The estate is also home to an 18-hole golf course.

The vacation was wonderful, incredible villa, sunsets and sunshine. What made it truly memorable was the support throughout the planning, during our stay and after. The LuxryRetreats team went above and beyond to make sure every detail was taken care of.
