A truly unique and stunning contemporary villa set in extensive private grounds. Ideal as a wedding venue or for a large gatherings of family and friends.
La Maison Michelle is a distinctive split level home expertly designed from individually themed bedrooms to unique art and decor not usually seen at other luxury Caribbean villas. Perched on Lancaster Ridge above the Platinum Coast this distinctive villa has been expertly designed to capture the cooling breezes and wonderful scenery from the flowing fields out to the timeless Caribbean Sea. La Maison Michelle is unique in every way from the concept layout, themed bedrooms, roof terraces and a fully staffed team.
Enter the villa on the first floor and you are welcomed by an elegant chandelier, a lovely painted abstract design on the concrete finished floor and a wide open window with views of the sea down towards the second wing of the villa. From this wing you can access three bedrooms. To the left is the lively Glass & Mirror Suite with an intricate block ceiling design, walk in closet, en suite black-tiled bathroom including shower and outdoor Jacuzzi.
The Caribbean Suite is situated to the right of this wing with miniature steel pan fixtures and vibrant colours. An en suite bathroom provides a standing shower. To the right of this wing is the Master Bedroom also known as the Shell Suite. As the name suggests, this room has neutral colours and furniture adorned with shells. A separate walk-in closet and en suite bathroom with bath and an open shower can also be found. These three rooms afford sea views and constant breezes from their private terraces.
The two further bedrooms are located on the ground floor accessible via a three-way split staircase fitted with a crystal glass lit backdrop. On the ground floor is the Ocean Suite, comprising two twin beds and en suite bathroom with a standing shower and closet area to the left. The final room is situated across the second wing of the villa and accessed via the courtyard. This is the Safari Suite - the jungle theme includes a large wardrobe painted with safari animals such as elephants, giraffes and other exotic animals. The spacious en suite bathroom has an exposed piece of natural coral stone which adds an earthy effect to the already well themed bathroom complemented by a granite 'cheetah' print counter top, open shower and warm wood tiles. This room also features a small terrace ideal for enjoying an early morning coffee whilst embracing garden and sea views. The courtyard also leads to the air-conditioned Media Room, equipped with comfy leather chairs and large screen where guests can enjoy on-demand movies and internet TV.
Through the tiled covered pathway is the open plan living room and expertly designed kitchen with an island and table seating up to 4 guests. Equipped with a stove top, oven, wine cooler, fridge, ice maker, dishwasher and more, the kitchen is complete for a holiday away from home. From the living room and kitchen you access the outdoor area. An expansive split level terrace is set up for lounging and informal dining. To the left and right of the terrace are separate elevated gazebos perfect for al fresco meals served by the Butler. The terrace and gazebos look out on to the large art deco infinity edge pool, sun deck with loungers and a small sanded area set up as your very own private beach! All have views of the breathtaking scenery from flowing fields out to the azure Caribbean waters. Further views can be enjoyed from one of the three roof terraces with seating and accessed via a spiral staircase in the courtyard.
La Maison Michelle features a fully functional Savant Home System, allowing guests to have full, easy control of lighting, climate, entertainment, privacy, and more from easy to access controllers located around the home.
