With the living areas on the main floor and bedrooms upstairs, this villa is ideally set up for sharing good times together and individual privacy.  The front door is recessed under a barrel-tile roof supported by stately fluted columns, and opens to the foyer with a reception table and benches on either side.

A step down leads to the unique octagon-shaped living room, much of which is walled in multi-paned windows and French doors that provide crisp detail and create a conservatory-like environment.  Sofas and easy chairs surround a large table in an arrangement suited for socializing while admiring the stunning outdoor scenery.  To one side, the dining room has a table seating eight in padded chairs with elegantly contoured chairs.  In the kitchen, highlights include stainless steel appliances, granite counters, and cabinets filled with all the essentials.

The air-conditioned family room features comfortable seating, plasma television with Blu-Ray player, and an I-pod station.  It can also act as a safe zone for entertaining the children, and the sofa invites guests to enjoy a good book or an afternoon nap.  

Beyond the living room, a Caribbean playground awaits with a swimming pool and integrated whirlpool for water fun, surrounded by a sunny terrace where padded chaise lounges are on hand for sunning and relaxation.  To the side of the terrace, a shaded gazebo offers a seating arrangement, a dining table for six, and a half-bath/changing room.  For privacy, a lush backdrop of greenery is formed by palms and shade trees.

Upstairs, the mezzanine contains a delightful seating arrangement and reading area as well as the hallway to the bedrooms, all of which are individually decorated with nicely crafted furniture and a carefully coordinated scheme of color and pattern.  Each has air-conditioning, plasma television and DVD player, and large closets.  The three guest baths include a tub/shower; the master bath offers extra luxuries such as a marble topped double vanity and a spa-like whirlpool tub with hand-held faucet for showering.
