From the patois word for Hummingbird the Villa Coulibri 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 challenging work of Architecture. The huge greenheart boxcar of a main living space is cleverly engineered to sit on a concrete box of identical dimensions. It cantilevers 20 feet out over a cliff 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. All hot water and electricity are solar powered but spaces are insulated and shaded from the sun to stay cool. Terrace guard rails are risky for children under 5.
The main villa is rented with 4 bedrooms containing two king size beds and two twin beds. The two Garden Studios have a queen sized bed and twin beds can be added on per room for extra payment. The Lodge is rented separately as available and is reserved for guests of the main villa in Peak season.
The villa has a resident house manager, Shermika Laurence and 2 further full time domestic staff in addition to gardener and pool maintenance man.
Shermika will cook and serve meals as you may require. 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 excellent evening dining. In addition Orlando’s is an independent restaurant at the foot of the access road which develops local ingredients and methods to a gourmet standard.
