Villa Heliconia is a country house located in Boguis, Babonneau, amidst two acres of spectacular and impeccably kept tropical grounds. Several varieties of mangoes, coconuts, guavas, almonds, cocoa and a host of tropical bounty grows around the gardens, so you can literally hand pick your own breakfast.
Down the staircase from the main terrace is a large family pool with tiled sundeck, outdoor changing rooms and a gazebo which help to make this traditional styled villa a private, tropical oasis. An exceptionally tranquil setting with idyllic country and mountain views in all directions make Heliconia the ideal location for a peaceful and relaxed holiday when you want to get away from the hustle and bustle, whilst being a short drive from civilisation.
Inside, the house has a large, bright living-room downstairs, with traditional details like lattice ventilation above the windows, ceiling medallions and turned wooden balusters. Two sets of French doors lead to the wraparound balcony overlooking the pool and gardens, while a family dine-in kitchen has white tiled countertops and is amply equipped with double stainless steel sink, storage cupboards, a 30" gas stove and large fridge freezer.
To the rear of the kitchen is the first of two bathrooms, fitted with a large shower, single vanity and toilet.
Up the solid wooden staircase, there are three bedrooms connected by a common balcony, with a shared bathroom on the same floor. Currently the rooms sleep a total of 10 people, but could be reconfigured to accommodate a more traditional set up of master and two guest bedrooms. Wooden floorboards throughout the upper floor are an original feature of the house, and all bedrooms have AC and ceiling fans. The second bathroom has a spacious shower, single vanity and toilet.
Built in the mid-1990s, Villa Heliconia's charm comes from its pastoral setting, lush, fertile grounds and traditional Saint Lucian architectural details. Fully grown Royal Palms line the property along with flowering shrubs and a myriad of tropical fruits, and there's even a section of the grounds jokingly named "The Farm." Spacious enough for a large family, and with potential to be a successful niche holiday rental, Villa Heliconia is a very special property off the beaten track in Saint Lucia's green heartland.
