Tourism & Health Certified, Stunning Ocean Views, Maid & Cook, Pools, Relaxing

Family-friendly Gros Islet villa in Mount Hardy with outdoor pool
Villa Ivrea is located at the northern tip of Cap Estate and boasts spectacular views of both the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. Designed by the American architect Dan F. Sater II and built in 2009 by Wayne Brown D/B, it offers all the amenities required by discerning travelers, beginning with luxuriously appointed bedrooms and social areas, together with outdoor features like an infinity pool, panoramic verandas, pergola and terraced gardens. All five bedrooms in the Main House enjoy breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean, the Caribbean Sea or both. A large panoramic deck invites guests to enjoy the sun just outside their room, while an enchanting downstairs veranda provides the ideal setting for deep relaxation, outdoor dining or simply staying close to the pool and witnessing some truly unforgettable Caribbean sunsets.

Cottage: In addition to the Main House, Villa Ivrea offers a completely independent, one-bedroom Cottage that includes a full kitchen with nook, bathroom, living room, central air conditioning, laundry station, and a veranda with a splash pool. It enjoys expansive views of the Atlantic Ocean and it is surrounded by an English lawn and a citrus orchard. The Cottage is quoted separately ($175 per night mid and low season with the rental of the villa, and $250 per night high season with the rental of the villa). Cottage is not available at this time due to Covid-19 restrictions
Groups of 8 will only receive 4 bedrooms within the main villa. If a 5th bedroom is required for a group of 8, there is an additional $120 per night. Groups over 8 will automatically be charged at the extra person rate. Please note: Our Villa has been Covid certified by the ministries of tourism and health. Villa Ivrea will assist with the coordination of meal preparation and grocery shopping when requested and during periods of restrictions.

Gardens: The terraced gardens host an eclectic mix of Mediterranean plants, including olive trees, lemon trees, figs, date palms, bay laurel, jasmine, oleander, and cypresses, complemented by tropical and native varieties of bird of paradise, cannas, bougainvilleas, ginger lilies, sago palms, mango trees and more. Most of the water used for the irrigation of the gardens comes from rainwater harvesting.

Nearby Activities and Services: The renowned St. Lucia Golf & Country Club is just a 5-min drive away, while a 15-min drive will put you in the heart of Rodney Bay with all its different attractions, including excellent restaurants, a world-class marina, shopping malls, pharmacies, post office, banks, etc.

Some restaurants we recommend: Spinnakers (Sunset Bar and Food on the beach), Memories of Hong Kong (Best Chinese in the Windward Islands), Elena's (Pizza like you are in Italy), Razmataz (Indian) and Big Chef (Steaks and Wine).

But all this is just the beginning, as the rest of this beautiful island awaits being explored by those interested in snorkeling, hiking, bird watching, scuba diving, sightseeing, mountain biking, deep-sea fishing, sailing, and more.

'Saluti' from Villa Ivrea, a taste of Italy, where the enchanting warm waters of the Caribbean Sea meet the crisp waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the dancing lights of Martinique greet you from the veranda.

Incredible Views, Great Atmosphere
This villa was the perfect setup for our large family with teens and young adults. The home was ideally architected to provide a gathering place that included kitchen, family room, deck and pool area in one continuous open space that accentuated the awesome view from high atop a hill overlooking the Atlantic ocean. Claudette, the property manager was quick to help with any question or need we had. Vicky, the cook/housekeeper, was a welcome addition with laundry, dishes, and meals which allowed us to relax. We would definitely recommend this property to friends and stay here again should the opportunity arise.

Overall the property was great with amazing views. Two suggestions would be more comfortable outdoor furniture and repairing the electronic gate.

Best birthday ever!
I came to St. Lucia with my three grown children and two spouses to celebrate my 70th birthday. It couldn't have been a more wonderful location for us! The Villa is spectacular, and the welcome from Claudette the property manager and Vicky, the cook/housekeeper was sincere and warm. The villa has so much room for all of us to gather, but also plenty of areas where we can quietly go to read or rest. The location was beautifully secluded to make us feel we were not really tourists. The VRBO photos don't even give the full effect of the beauty of this place! Would highly recommend to anyone! Thank you!

Dream getaway!
This was the most peaceful, relaxing vacation we have ever had. The house and grounds were beautiful and the owner and housekeeper were both so lovely and went out of their way to make sure we had a great stay. If you want to disconnect from the rest of the world and recharge with beautiful views, THIS is the place to do it!

Exactly like the listing said it would be
This property was exactly the way it's listed online. Ive Rented plenty of properties using home away and some properties exaggerated a little bit. Miss Bertha did a absolute wonderful job as the house maid. And that Creole chicken and rice and plantains and potatoes that she cooked us for lunch was delicious. Everyone was drinking the Creole sauce like it was soda. The views from the house and the pool were amazing. And I also love the fact that we were closer to town but also away from town. It was so peaceful. I do recommend having a rental. One night we tried calling a taxi and the one guy was on the other side of the island and the number to another guy he gave us didn't know how to get to the villa. Everyone kept asking me how to get to the Villa as if Im from St Lucia. I gave perfect directions from the golf course to the villas and they still had no clue what I was talking about. There was only two complaints that we had. We asked that the two King beds be broken down to two single beds. That did not happen but everyone was fine with the arrangement so we didn't make a big deal out of it. Also, the TV in the cottage did not work. I didn't really care because I don't really watch TV while on vacation. we plan to revisit the island in about 3 years. More than likely we will rebook cap estate.

Amazing villa; amazing views!
The Villa is even better than the pictures suggest. It was spacious, and reasonably well-equipped (for a rental property). Plenty of beach towels and pool towels supplied. And the views were absolutely amazing. A vehicle seems necessary to get to beaches, restaurants and grocery stores. We had an amazing day on a speed boat charter out of the Rodney Bay marina.

Gorgeous Property
Villa Ivrea is a very stately home. As opposed to some Caribbean villas we've stayed in, it was very comfortable. It is located in a very quiet neighborhood, and has a magnificent view of St. Lucia Passage. The property manager and staff were extremely attentive to our needs, and the owners looked to our comfort through VRBO contact messaging to ensure our needs were met.

What a view!
Our week was wonderfully relaxing in this beautiful home. The first floor living space was very comfortable but admittedly we spent most of our stay on the porch overlooking the pool, the flowers and the Caribbean. It was very warm in October so we were able to open the doors and windows allowing the sea breezes to flow through the house. At night, we retreated to our air conditioned bedrooms. As five women, we prepared our own meals whenever we ate in but Berta was always there to help out whenever we had a question or needed something. So, from the moment that Claudette (the property manager) greeted us to Victor (our amazing taxi driver) dropping us off at the airport, we felt totally pampered. And as a major highlight, Lisa prepared a celebratory feast for us on our last night in St. Lucia.

Magnificent !!!!!
This was the best property I’ve ever stayed! The views are breath taking. It’s located away from mainstream, yet close enough to multiple grocery stores and shopping. I can not say enough about this property. Picturesque, again, beautiful scenery, clean and secluded. I will definitely be back and stay here!
