One of St Barts' best kept secrets, Villa Marapi stands in authentic island vegetation overlooking the valley to the sea at Grand Fond.
It combines the simplicity of traditional St Barts architecture with the grandeur of plantation-style living, centred around the grand piano and the newly refurbished pool.
The huge open plan living area provides a variety of seating areas inside and out, poolside and inside dining, the odd hammock and, of course, the piano.
The modernity of the fully equipped kitchen is hidden away in a separate bungalow where it doesn't intrude on the surrounding elegance.
The tasteful furnishing continues in the four en suite bedrooms, one in a separate bungalow and one tucked away on a lower level.
The hillside botanic garden, planted with over 300 indigenous species, provides private nooks and crannies for relaxing as well as a small pétanque area, and is home to many Caribbean birds.
The secluded hideaway of Villa Apiano is so serene, it's hard to believe the exciting nightlife of Gustavia or St Jean is less than a 10 minute drive away.
Privacy, authentic, spacious, warm, good value, pool.
Prices do not include taxes (5% tourism tax and 10% service charge).
