WELCOME TO COULIBRI SAINT LUCIA
From the patois word for Hummingbird the Coulibri St Lucia features 6 bedrooms and a Lodge to sleep up to 14 people, overlooking the Soufriere Bay toward the Caribbean Sea and the Piton mountains World Heritage site. There is a 48’ swimming pool over looked by a Pavilion, outdoor BBQ area and solar tub. The House has indoor and terrace living areas surrounded by curtains to reduce daytime heat.
Below the house are a 2 self-contained Garden rooms with breakfast bars, also facing the sea with a shared plunge pool. The Lodge is a separately entered Loft like house for a couple which also has its own full kitchen, plunge pool and very private view of the magnificent Pitons. The house is naturally ventilated everywhere whilst bedrooms have additional air conditioning.
More than a house, the villa is a imaginative work of architecture. The impressive greenheart boxcar main living space is intelligently engineered to sit on a concrete foundation of identical dimensions, cantilevering 20 feet out over the hillside, 500 feet above the Caribbean sunset looking west to Mexico 1000 miles away. The only glass in the entire villa is an underwater porthole from the main swimming pool into the Master Bedroom. Teak louvered screens slide away exposing panoramic views over the sea. The extended 3 way infinity swimming pool aims toward the Piton mountains. Hot water and electricity are solar powered but spaces are insulated and shaded from the sun to stay cool.
The main villa has four bedrooms with two king size beds and two twin beds. The two Garden Studios have a queen sized bed and twin beds and can be added on per room for extra payment. Coulibri Lodge is rented separately as available and is reserved for guests of the main villa in Peak season.
Coulibri has a resident manager, Shermika Lawrence, and 2 further full time staff including a housekeeper and a gardener/pool maintenance man.
Shermika will cook and serve breakfast and either lunch or dinner. The guest must pay for groceries and drinks. These can be purchased in town or the staff can do the shopping as requested.
Around Anse Chastanet and the feet of the Pitons there is excellent snorkelling off any of the 4 local beaches, 3 of which offer scuba diving schools. Sugar Beach offers dinghy sailing rentals and water skiing. There are three excellent mountains to climb with local guides and a live volcano caldera above Soufriere town with hot springs and hot water falls in the surrounding rain forest.
Two of the beaches have excellent lunchtime restaurants and local top hotels offer exceptional international cuisine. In addition there are independent restaurants which offer Caribbean specialities. Many restaurants feature live music in the evening
