Hirondelle features earth tones and a stylish design and warmth. Benefiting from year-round breezes, the open design creates a naturally cooled living space with doors which open to the splendid panoramic views of the sea or the lush garden. The large living room includes a seating area with comfortable sofas, a dining table and an open gourmet kitchen. The living and dining areas maximize the indoor/alfresco lifestyle by providing easy access to the outdoor areas. The kitchen comes fully equipped with lots of counter space.
The villa can accommodate up to six guests. Due to the rocky, seaside landscape and dramatic coastline of the villa it is not suitable for young children. Each of the bedrooms include an en-suite bathroom, air conditioning and pool or garden access.
One of the unique features of the villa is the private walled garden area designed by John Criswick. Criswick’s home is the St Rose Nursery of Tropical Plants, described by the American Horticultural Society as, “the most extensive nursery in the Caribbean”. Set in the Grand Etang rainforest overlooking Mount Maitland, the nursery is home to rainbow-coloured tibouchinas, strelitzias and heliconias, which bloom in the lush greenery. It is plants such as these that Criswick has provided for past exhibitions by Grenada at the Chelsea Flower Show in London and that we are lucky enough to have in our garden.
Additional features include a large plunge pool as well as a sunset turret. The turret gives you a bird’s eye view of the coastline with a lovely outdoor seating area with cushions. A sun deck with teak loungers frames the infinity pool as well as an alternative sun deck closer to the water’s edge.
As the days wind down, recline with your favorite cocktail and enjoy the magical sunsets at Hirondelle Villa!
