Novelist James Michener called Marigot Bay, “the most beautiful bay in the Caribbean.” Stepping out onto the terrace of Villa Ashiana, you’ll see why. The home is a tribute to classic colonial design with hints of old-world charm. Terraces, patios and decks allow you to take in the stunning bay view, where yachts and sailboats stream to and fro across turquoise waters.
Spend your days on the sun-drenched pool terrace. Relax in a chaise longue and when the sun gets too hot, open a canvas parasol or take a dip in the large pool. Settle into one of the lounge sets on the ground floor patio, amid elegant columns. When dusk approaches, gather your guests with a cocktail and watch the sun set across the horizon. An outdoor barbecue allows you to grill up fresh local seafood which you can serve at the al fresco table.
Inside, soft living room sofas and chairs will lure you in, providing maximum comfort while you enjoy a movie on the flatscreen TV. The ground floor’s two living rooms, dining room and kitchen are laid out in an open concept plan, divided into sections by more columns and lush potted tropical plants. The chef-appointed kitchen will inspire you to create memorable feasts and a cook is also available to prepare meals. Savor every bite around a beautiful glass dining table.
All five bedrooms are on the upper floor and each is individually decorate with tasteful linens and furnishings: four-poster bed, rattan chairs and floral patterns to name a few. The first three bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms while the remaining two share facilities. Air conditioning cools each room and an open-air patio wraps the floor.
When you’re ready to feel the sand between your toes, a ferry will zip you across to a gorgeous beach. Sailing is the lifeblood of Marigot Bay and you’ll have no trouble chartering a boat for an excursion to the famous Pitons or simply renting a sailboat to whip around the bay. When you’re back on land, you’ll find several good dining options in town. Shoppers will enjoy a day trip to Castries and the duty free Pointe Seraphine.
