Wild Orchid is a three-storey, spacious Villa is located on a hill with a 270-degree view of the Caribbean Sea and Atlantic Ocean. It is situated at one of the northern most points of St. Lucia, and provides spectacular panoramic views of the northwest Coast, the historic National Park of Pigeon Island, the beautiful French island of Martinique and the majestic Mount Gimie.

Inside, you will find a spacious 'great room' with vaulted ceilings (the beams were obtained from St. Lucia Forestry), a big screen TV, cable television and DVD and stereo. Adjacent to this is a formal dining room. A large, modern, fully equipped kitchen complete with an outside covered barbeque patio invites you to enjoy a variety of dining experiences.

The first floor has two bedrooms, both of which have Caribbean Sea pool views. The end bedroom has a King swing (two twin beds that can be separated if desired) and a trundle daybed that sleeps two. The second bedroom also has a King swing. Each bedroom includes an en-suite bathroom with a shower.

The master bedroom encompasses the entire second floor. The master suite is beautifully furnished and features a king-size bed. It also has a unique shower room overlooking the mountains. There are two balconies; the southern one has a wonderful view of St. Lucia’s southwestern coast and beaches; the northern balcony provides a beautiful view of the ocean and island of Martinique.

A covered veranda runs the entire length of the house, and includes a welcoming seating area and an outdoor dining area. The extra-large heated swimming pool is encircled by a tiled deck, and is well equipped with dining table, loungers and umbrellas inviting you to enjoy lazy days in the sun... or shade... under the flower trimmed trellis.

Wild Orchid is fully landscaped, and contains mature gardens with a wide variety of tropical plants and flowers. As a result of this, it has become a haven for many species of butterflies and wild birds; they will delight you with their colours, songs, bathing activities and energy. The gardener/groundskeeper (Mr. Clovis/Dragon) is very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna and would be most happy to familiarize you with the tropical plants and birds.

At Wild Orchid you can hear the ocean and see everything from cruise ships to the local fishing boats sailing the coastal waters. Sunset and night time views at this villa are a magnificent experience; the south coast becomes aglow and Martinique shimmers in the Atlantic Ocean.

This unique Villa was built to capture St. Lucia’s famous trade winds; the house is very open and utilizes numerous architectural elements of traditional Caribbean villas.  Air-conditioning, ceiling fans, and traditional netting are in each of the three oversized, open bedrooms.

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.

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.

Conveniently located, Wild Orchid is a 20 minute ride from George Charles Airport; 10 minutes from the Rodney Bay Marina and the Reduit Beach area where you can enjoy an array of dining experiences, from local carry-out foods to elegant 5-star restaurants.

About the Island & Getting There

About St Lucia

The Land, The People, The Light – St Lucia’s motto couldn’t be more representative of this captivating sovereign island nation. Witness dazzling scenery, be spellbound by the fascinating locals and allow for St Lucia to brighten your day and show you a new way to life.

St Lucia gained its independence from the British Commonwealth in 1979 and after centuries of a French presence, which is most visible today in the original Capital of Soufrière, St Lucia is famous for its Pitons & landscapes and vivacious community.

St Lucia really is a hiker’s Nirvana! Where to start? That’s a tough question. However, with the likes of - The Diamond Botanical Gardens, Enbas Saut Waterfall Trail, Pigeon Island National Park, Sulphur Springs Park Scenic Drive and Tet Paul Nature Trail – it doesn’t matter! These UNESCO listed sites are a sight to behold. If you're likely to take to the water, you'll be able to admire the rich marine biodiversity just off the shore of St Lucia. Over 60% of the marine area is made up of coral reefs and these are very poular with snorkelers and scuba divers. Just make sure you put time aside to relish these privileged land & seascapes.

Start your cultural trip downtown in Castries. Here you will be provided with more than enough entertainment for an afternoon and evening. The local Market runs throughout the week and is certainly the right place to come for exotic fruits and tantalising Street Food - the Green Fig & Salt Fish is local delicacy and it's not scarce, so perhaps try a few variants on this regional intricacy and let us know which is your favourite! The vendors are incredibly animated, so expect a show to be put on if you choose to explore this part of the island and brush up on those haggling skills. La Place Carenage and Point Seraphine are very popular Malls and if you bear in mind the added incentive of these complexes being Duty-Free, you and your guests will certainly get some good deals (A taxi back to your villa after such an excursion is suggested!).

Many holiday makers are surprised to learn of St Lucia’s rich cocoa legacy. Ever since the 1700’s this island has been producing cocoa related products, that are incredibly sought after all across the world. Morne Coubaril Estate and La Dauphine Estate specialise in showcasing how plantations use to gather & manufacture the Cocoa Bean fruit and organise educational tours. After learning all about St Lucia’s former booming cocoa industry, you will probably need some therapy…how about chocolate therapy like you’ve never encountered before? Enquire at some of the islands more renowned Spas and you’ll be able to experience the benefits of a chocolate facial and massage. Remember - Chocolate isn’t a food, it’s a medicine!

We have selected some of the most exciting villas on the island, so browse through these dreamy holiday homes and have a look at our cheeky little guide to St Lucia!

    The vacation was wonderful, incredible villa, sunsets and sunshine. What made it truly memorable was the support throughout our stay.

  • Everything as we expected

    Posted by Anonymous on 02/12/2013

    I enjoyed my stay at Wild Orchid. Dragon the grounds keeper was pleasant, quiet, and quickly addressed anything that we requested. Please note, you must let them know two or three days ahead of time if you want the pool to be heated.

    The best thing about this property other than the welcoming vibe that Dragon and Jennifer set are the views. You have a 180 degree ocean view of the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea from the master bedroom. The ocean views from the outdoor areas are stunning during the day and evening as well. A massage therapist came to the house for a very reasonable fee. Here name is Susie and was recommended by the property manager, Margareet. Rodney Bay is only 5 minutes away and had lots of restaurants and night life. We have already planned our return trip next year.
