St. Barts' Ever-Blooming FlowerBy Eric Green | May 24, 2018
Villa Fleur de Cactus – far from embodying the prickly nature of its namesake – is one of the most inviting, luxurious and comforting private villa rental properties on the island of St. Barts. Located on the hillside of Lurin and equal parts comfortable modernity and tasteful, timeless elegance, Villa Fleur de Cactus is, in fact, the exact same kind of rare beauty as a cactus flower in the midst of a desert.
This villa property is new and wonderfully modern, with open and spacious common areas – fully air-conditioned – and matching exterior poolside lounging, ideal for capturing the best of everything St. Barts has to offer. From nearly every room in Villa Fleur de Cactus the Caribbean Sea is visible in all its splendor, glory and beauty.
Entering into the villa itself, guests will marvel at the chic and contemporary furnishings and décor, designed specifically to be both inviting and exclusive, calling guests in and assuring them that they have truly arrived in St. Barts fashion.
The main living area of Villa Fleur de Cactus is an oasis within paradise, replete with bountiful lounge seating, air conditioning and fan, iPod dock and elaborate home cinema system ready to engulf all comers in a one of a kind entertainment experience. Overlooking the radiance of the sea, this is also an ideal spot to enjoy the sunset and stars from the comfort of indoors.
Next door, the kitchen is completely modern and state-of-the-art, equipped with all the furnishings necessary to make a great experience an unforgettable one. Ready for ten people, the kitchen amenities include range, microwave, coffee machine, toaster, blender, dishwasher, air conditioning, interior bar and wok fire, for those wishing to prepare something festive and exotic. Make no mistake, this is a kitchen designed with world-class chefs in mind and it is fully available to all guests of this stunning hillside property.
Outside, onto the terrace, guests will fully comprehend the majesty that is the island of St. Barts. The view from Villa Fleur de Cactus is incomparable, equal parts dreamlike and very much real. Standing watching ships on the horizon will render anyone completely at peace, engulfed in the overwhelming serenity of the Caribbean Sea.
The pool deck is also equipped with a shaded outdoor gazebo, complete with bar and fridge, in which to enjoy a moment out of the sun. Further, at night the stars alight and dance overhead creating a fairy-tale atmosphere for any lucky enough to enjoy it. A trip to St. Barts is not complete without an evening spent stargazing, wrapped in the arms of someone special.
The bedrooms of Villa Fleur de Cactus boast the same opulence and comfort as the rest of the property and are all fully air-conditioned for maximum comfort. Each bedroom offers the same view as the rest of the villa – this time in a much more intimate setting. Further, each room is home to a King sized bed, fan, television with US satellite and DVD player, personal safe and private bathroom with shower. Two of the three bedrooms are further home to iPod dock and private terrace – ideal for setting any desired mood!
Newly designed, expertly decorated and imperiously beautiful, Villa Fleur de Cactus is without a doubt one of the finest properties of its size on St. Barts, ideal for friends and couples traveling together. Complete with a full complement of staff including housekeeper, pool maintenance worker, and gardener, everything that needs to be taken care of is taken care of, leaving guests not a worry in the world besides enjoyment and indulgence.
