Le Bulletin - April 2015


Villa Ananda

There are lots of things I love about my job as president of St. Barth Properties, and one of them is writing my blog. I hope you are a reader of Peg’s Blog (It’s an easy name to remember!). Many of you know by now how passionate I am about this beautiful little island, so it’s great fun to share the latest news, review restaurants and share photos. We really do have the most gorgeous fiery sunsets, and the views from the villas we represent are stunning.

Villas of St. Barth

We are pleased to welcome Villa Ananda to our portfolio.
Dream About: Vacationing in a chic villa close to St. Jean’s bistros and boutiques, with a view of its bay.

This chic 4 bedroom villa is located in desirable St. Jean, in proximity to its village’s bistros and boutiques. The air-conditioned main pavilion includes a comfortable contemporary living area that showcases a view of the Baie de St. Jean. A long, sleek bar with seating works well for cocktail concocting and casual dining; it opens to the pool terrace – party perfect. The kitchen, outfitted with high-end appliances and a wine chiller, can be closed off via sliding smoked glass doors. All bedrooms have en suite baths, and a guest bath is just off the pool area. There are two master (king-bedded) suites; one connects via a hallway to a guest (king) bedroom. An additional (king) bedroom is housed in a separate pavilion across the courtyard.

The bedrooms all feature Dish TV (the living room has French Canal service in addition to Dish). The extra-long pool is stunning, heated and ideal for swimming laps. The expansive outdoor space includes a lower deck “lookout” and a dining gazebo where guests can enjoy poolside BBQs. The lower level features an air-conditioned gym.
