Villa My Way
My Way Villa is located on the northwestern corner of St. Barths and is the epitome of luxury and contemporary design. The first thing that catches guest’s eyes is a gleaming black-laquered grand piano which is the center piece of the modern living area. Photos of Frank Sinatra hang on the walls, and a quote from “My Way” decorates the backsplash behind the stove in the open kitchen.
A sense of retro glamour permeates this luxury villa in Colombier, one of the finest new rental properties in St. Barths. The furniture on the terraces becomes softly illuminated by night, the kitchen is well equipped with gadgetry and walk-in cold room, and the living room is transformed into an entertainment centre when a large screen drops down from the ceiling and a projector is turned on.
Guests have sublime privacy, thanks to the private entrances into each of the five equal-size bedrooms, and myriad ways to amuse themselves, whether reveling in Rat Pack nostalgia, losing themselves in sea and sky views, or watching a movie indoors. This makes My Way an excellent choice for extended families with adult children, groups of friends traveling together and even corporate retreats.
The overall look is sleek and modern, with cool slate grey floors, horizontal lines, low-slung furnishings, walls made entirely of glass, and carefully deployed pops of colour amid the soothing seas of white: an orange wall in one of the bedrooms, or a canary yellow table paired with black and white chairs.
Space is abundant, both in the expansive indoor and outdoor living areas and in the five bedrooms (three upstairs and two downstairs) with private bathrooms. Downstairs there’s also a fitness room with top-line equipment and floor-to-ceiling mirrors to reflect the ocean view. There’s also a large, covered parking area.
Parking An underground garage can accommodate eleven cars
But the best ocean view, of course, is to be had from the infinity-edge pool that stretches the length of the terrace, or from the Jacuzzi and sun loungers outside. There are whimsical features too, like a pool that’s just deep enough to float in on a chaise, and a window in the main pool that gives guests a glimpse of what’s happening in the water as they make their way up the stairs from the downstairs bedrooms and fitness room.
