A luxury villa with a splendid panorama of the Caribbean horizon
Villa Palm Springs on St Barths, the first resort to be built on the island, was built in about 1950 by a famous Caribbean aviator and adventurer, Remy de Haenen, and is now the destination of choice for the rich and famous.
The villa has breath-taking views over the ocean with a two-hundred degree panoramic view of the Caribbean horizon. Its design is enhanced by careful integration with the island’s native landscape; positioned as it is against a natural berm of volcanic stone, the villa blends into its environment while adhering to clean, modern lines. The surrounding gardens with their tropical plants hold the property in a flowery embrace as you ascend the white steps to the villa and decked terrace. On the right, the long infinity swimming pool invites you to take a dip and cool off from the Caribbean sun.
The bedrooms are all en-suite with private bathroom and reflect the style of the master – sophisticated and designed to evoke a contemporary feeling of 1960’s lines and form. Think Palm Springs, think James Bond – one of the bedrooms provides a picture-window view of the crystal clear water of the infinity pool.
Away from the bedrooms you will find a kitchen with all the modern amenities and well equipped for your private chef to come in and create any mouth-watering dish you ask for. The living room offers a contemporary and comfortable feel with large white sofas and ocean views.
Palm Springs also has a fitness room, located on the lower level of the property, to help you remain fit and healthy whilst on holiday. Equipment includes a treadmill, stepper, weights, exercise balloon and skipping rope.
