The villa was completely reconstructed in 1999 and features greenheart wood floors, Italian-tiled bathrooms, two large bedrooms with antique West Indian four-poster beds, antique tables and armoires. The walls and ceilings have been painted a blend of soft greys, off whites and whites. The total habitable space is 5400 square feet.
The living room, pool and kitchen are upstairs. The living room is 2200 square feet with two settees covered in Ian Mankin fabric with large soft cushions. There are various chairs and extra tables scattered around the outer terrace. The pool is 18 feet x10 feet and has a clay-tiled terrace to the side for the cushioned pool loungers. It is always possible to sit in the shade if you prefer. There is a four-poster day bed for reading and napping upstairs and a bathroom by the pool.
