Oceana is large private villa located at Sugar Hill. Wonderful views of the Caribbean sea from its terraces and very smartly furnished throughout.
Oceana is a magnificent four bedroom estate villa in the prime location of Ocean Ridge in the exclusive gated community of Sugar Hill. Secluded amidst tropical trees and shrubs, including frangipani, bougainvillea, ginger lilies, banana and coconut palms, and approached via a private driveway adjacent to the house, Oceana maximises the benefits of its superb position with the enjoyment of tropical living.
The internal design is stunning, with elegantly curved doors and windows in natural wood reflecting a cloister-like ambience within the coral stone walls. The matching jalousie shutters throughout the house add a further touch of refinement, and provide a cooling sea breeze in the living areas to complement the ceiling fans. There are three bedrooms in the main house, with the fourth in a separate self-contained cottage in the grounds. All bedrooms have air conditioning, ceiling fans, walk-in closets and ensuite bathrooms with marble throughout.
The living room opens out onto the expansive covered terrace through two sets of French windows. Beyond is the large pool deck, the gardens and the azure sea. On the right the hall leads to the lower bedroom wing with its own hallway and door for additional privacy and quietness. Across the hall is a twin bedroom, where the beds can also be arranged as a kingsize, with a private patio. At the end of the hallway is the Queen Bedroom Suite, with sitting area, which opens through French windows onto both the pool deck and the covered terrace.
The tower, reminiscent of a medieval bell-tower, is a feature of the house with its high vaulted ceiling and ornate windows. At the top of the stairs is the Master Bedroom Suite, with Super king size four poster bed and separate dressing room. The ensuite bathroom has a large corner bath, a separate shower and twin basins. Running the length of the Master Suite and approached through two sets of French windows is its private veranda, offering truly spectacular westerly views of the Caribbean Sea.
The picturesque, partially open-air dining room looking out towards the sea is an impressive feature of the house, with its own internal garden and cathedral ceiling. The spectacular black granite dining table on carved coral pedestals is complemented by a matching built-in bar, the perfect place for cocktails as you watch the sun set on the sea. Next to the house is the self-contained, air-conditioned, one bedroom cottage with ensuite bathroom and separate kitchen. This can be configured as twin beds or king size as required. Guests of Oceana have the use of all the Sugar Hill amenities. These include a clubhouse with large pool, restaurant, fully-equipped, air-conditioned fitness centre and members lounge, as well as the first class David Lloyd tennis facilities. Sugar Hill is a gated community with security guards both at the gate and on patrol 24 hours a day.
Property owners tend to accept bookings over the Christmas and New Year period on stricter terms than at other times of year. In general, bookings are subject to a 14 night minimum stay but owners may require a 3 week booking in some cases and will often need to approve dates to fit with their own travel plans or those of other guests. A higher deposit of 50% of the total rental price is payable for such bookings and the balance becomes due earlier at 90 days before arrival.
All prices quoted above have been calculated based on information provided by the owners but are subject to confirmation during December and January as occasionally owners may insist on the higher Christmas rate being applied either side of the main Christmas period. We suggest you contact us for a firm price quotation at this time of year, before making your booking.
*Price subject to confirmation by property owner.
The above prices include all local taxes (VAT, Shared Economy Levy, Room Rate Levy as applicable) as well as any local service charges. A security deposit of US$1,000 will be required on arrival.
