Tamarind House means different things to the people who have already experienced its beauty and legendary hospitality. The rare luxury of space and privacy. Room to relax, to breathe, to rejuvenate and dream. Happy memories of drinks and laughter under the tamarind tree. Long white curtains billowing in the breeze. Swimming in the pool under a full moon. Bouganvillea climbing the walls - fuchia, violet and orange flowers set against a clear blue sea and sky. Rum cocktails and fish cakes at sunset.

Tamarind House is located just off the Anse Chastanet Road; approximately 1.5 miles from Soufriere and 5 minutes from Anse Chastanet beach. Covering 8850 sq ft of space, this exceptionally large house is constructed of local stone with high greenheart ceilings and Barbados tile floors throughout.

The main house has three bedrooms and three bathrooms, while the separate Cottage is a master bedroom suite with its own living room, kitchen (with coffee press, kettle, toaster and stove), dressing area, marble bathroom, king size four poster bed and terrace. Tamarind House has been featured in Maco magazine and the book "Caribbean Elegance" by Michael Connors because of the large collection of antique West Indian furniture it contains. A staircase descending from the car park, leads you into a cool, circular courtyard filled with banana plants and flowers. As you pass through the graceful arched doorway, the enormous 2550 sq ft living room stretches away before you and leads to the terrace where the tamarind tree grows up out of the tiles. This fabulous tree provides shade and coolness to the house all through the day. The living room features two seven foot settees and a very large travertine stone coffee table. The dining table seats 6-8 and the wild breadfruit trestle table can be used for large parties.

The master bedroom is 640 sq ft of bedroom and private terrace with a beautiful antique king size four poster bed, side tables, a hand carved standing cheval mirror and small armoir. There is a walk in closet with a safe, and an Italian tiled bathroom with tub/shower and two sinks. The Piton view from the bed is framed by bougainvillea climbing up the stone walls. The second bedroom has 415 sq ft of bedroom and private terrace with a queen four poster bed, carved standing mirror, two side tables with Chinese blue and white lamps and a marble topped antique table beside the walk in closet. The ensuite marble bathroom with shower has high quality fixtures and a chrome mirror. The third bedroom is for children and has a double and a single four poster bed. It also has its own private terrace and Italian tiled bathroom with shower.

The Cottage master bedroom suite has three graceful stone arch openings and 30 foot high ceilings. Long white curtains at each door way billow out in the breeze. Two large 7 foot couches with blue and white cushions, a large coffee table and antique tables beside the king size red cedar four poster bed make this a wonderfully private romantic space. A collection of paintings by St. Kitts artist Kate Spencer are on display here. A dressing area with chest of drawers, hanging cupboard and shelves leads into the marble tiled bathroom with shower. Exceptionally high quality 100% Egyptian cotton sheets, French linen bed covers and plush towels will pamper you. The Cottage has its own kitchen and terrace with dining table and chairs. The 35x15 foot totally private pool is situated below the Cottage and has 1060 sq ft of terrace and shade pavilion around it. The pool edge is open on one side to give uninterrupted views of the Pitons. The house also has a professional size tennis court with a Bioflex surface and of course superb views of the Pitons as you play.

Oliver Approved

What Oliver loves…

  • Sensational views of the Pitons. I can't over emphasize this point!
  • The price includes a cook and a maid so put your feet up!
  • The rear terrace is an incredible space with a beautiful tree in the middle of it.
  • Tamarind House has had many famous visitors over the years, Colin Tennant was a regular lunch guest and Harrison Ford played tennis on the court.

What you should know…

  • No AC but it's not really needed due to the very thick stone walls that keep the villa cool at all times.
  • There are no amenities within walking distance.

St Lucia is located midway down the Eastern Caribbean chain, between Martinique and St. Vincent, and north of Barbados. St. Lucia is only 27 miles long and 14 miles wide. The Atlantic Ocean meets its eastern shore, while the beaches of the west coast owe their beauty to the calm Caribbean Sea.

Saint Lucia is the ideal destination for adults and children alike. Whether you are searching for romance, adventure, or rejuvenation from the stresses and strains of everyday life, St Lucia promises all those and the holiday of a lifetime, offering something for everyone. Underneath the glorious Carribean sun, St Lucia has a genuine natural landscape of palm fringed beaches, miles of unspoilt rainforest and the breathtaking Piton mountains.

For children (as well as those young at heart and mind!) there are water parks throughout the island and ATV adventures and rainforest zip lining are family favourites. Many of the island's resorts offer children's activities so parents can enjoy a cocktail or couples massage whilst knowing that the kids are safe and enjoying their ultimate childhood holiday.

St Lucia is also a romantic paradise for couples; bask together under the Carribean Sun, sail into a champagne sunset and relax under the vast starry sky. For all those who travel to this island, tropical weather, glorious weather and the holiday of a lifetime truly does await.

Taking the time to explore this island really is a must, enjoy a trip to Malgretout Waterfall to swim in the volcanic waters or visit the palm-fringed Marigot Bay and its marina filled with luxury yachts. For those who really want to relax while in St Lucia, the Diamond Falls Mineral Baths which date from pre-revolutionary France are a must-visit. Similarly, just a short bus ride from the town of Soufrière are the New Jerusalem outdoor mineral baths, said to soothe sore muscles and tired joints. The baths are a well-kept secret, away from tourist crowds, which should make your visit extra peaceful.

It is not only the scenery that makes St Lucia so wonderful; the people are unbelievably friendly and hospitable. Pop into the friendly and beautifully decorated Zaka Art cafe in Soufriere for the best freshly roasted coffee, yummy fruit smoothies and unique works of art available to purchase.

Whether you are planning a wedding or honeymoon, a spa retreat or a family holiday it is the perfect destination. A stay in on of our exclusive St. Lucia villa's will refresh your mind, revitalise your body and soothe your spirit.

Tamarind House is located just off the Anse Chastanet Road; approximately 1.5 miles from Soufriere and 5 minutes from Anse Chastanet beach.

- 7 minute drive to Soufriere.
- 10 minute walk to Anse Chastanet Beac.
