With its hand-cut native stone exterior and very pretty mature grounds full of lots of tropical color, Vieux Caribe was designed to look as if it was built years ago. This imposing 3-story house, located on prestigious Ocean Point, overlooks gorgeous and usually deserted Taylor Bay Beach, which has lovely, soft white sand. This is also a wonderful beach for children as the water is calm and quite shallow for a good distance out and for parents to loll about in the gin clear water.
Vieux Caribe’s airy interiors are full of antique and unique furniture and objects, which compliment the dramatic ceiling heights. The house has fabulous views from every room and though there is natural cross ventilation with lots of doors and ceiling fans, air conditioning is available should guests wish it. Each of the five large and equal primary bedroom suites has a beamed ceiling and French doors opening onto a porch with spectacular views of the sea and dazzling sunsets. From the third floor porch, one can also see across Taylor Bay Beach to Chalk Sound, which is a National Park with the most extraordinary intense turquoise colored water. The large, two-story Great Room has French doors that open to a porch with three steps leading to a big terrace with a pool, cabana and wet bar. A separate outside entrance leads to the lower level and the two optional bedrooms suites. A few feet away from them is a dock with a ladder for easy water access and a private boat slip. Taylor Bay Beach is just a few minutes walk or one can also get to it by swimming across a very narrow channel.
