Tamarind House   Soufriere, St Lucia

Tamarind House means different things to the people who have already experienced its beauty and legendary hospitality. The rare luxury of space and privacy. Room to relax, to breathe, to rejuvenate and dream. Happy memories of drinks and laughter under the tamarind tree. Long white curtains billowing in the breeze. Swimming in the pool under a full moon. Bouganvillea climbing the walls - fuchia, violet and orange flowers set against a clear blue sea and sky. Rum cocktails and fish cakes at sunset.

Villa Description

Tamarind House is located just off the Anse Chastanet Road; approximately 1.5 miles from Soufriere and 5 minutes from Anse Chastanet beach. Covering 8850 sq ft of space, this exceptionally large house is constructed of local stone with high greenheart ceilings and Barbados tile floors throughout.

Tamarind House has been featured in Maco magazine and the book "Caribbean Elegance" by Michael Connors because of the large collection of antique West Indian furniture it contains. A staircase descending from the car park, leads you into a cool, circular courtyard filled with banana plants and flowers. As you pass through the graceful arched doorway, the enormous 2550 sq ft living room stretches away before you and leads to the terrace where the tamarind tree grows up out of the tiles. This fabulous tree provides shade and coolness to the house all through the day. The living room features two seven foot settees and a very large travertine stone coffee table. The dining table seats 6-8 and the wild breadfruit trestle table can be used for larger parties.

The 35x15 foot totally private pool is situated below the Cottage and has 1060 sq ft of terrace and shade pavilion around it. The pool edge is open on one side to give uninterrupted views of the Pitons.

The house also has a professional size tennis court with a Bioflex surface and of course superb views of the Pitons as you play.

Jeep rental recommended.

    Tamarind House was the perfect getaway for a girls trips of 6 of us. The house is absolutely gorgeous with breathtaking views of the pitons. The house staff was wonderful in preparing us meals. Our visit was in the middle of July, and since this is an open-air villa, it was definitely on the hot side, which we were prepared for. Better fans would be a nice addition as well as a ceiling fan in the cottage. It was a 15-minute walk down to Anse Chastanet beach/resort which has lounge chairs/huts for rental and the bar makes a wonderful mojito. The walk back up to the villa is quite the workout! - Lydia P., Texas, USA
