Villa Coquille offers all luxuries of St. James's Club, spectacular views of Mamora Bay from sunrise to sunset and very private and intimate feel. If you are looking to be in a very secure environment with all comforts that a holiday resort offers, but want to be in a secluded, intimate and very private beachfront location at the same time, you found your place!
Completely remodelled by the owners when they decided to become part-time residents of the island, they made it into a charming beach house that offers all comforts of a permanent home and easy-going, free-range, beach-style living. The artist/interior designer owner created a home which lets in cooling breezes of the ocean and promotes true indoor-outdoor living. Whether you relax on the terrace or wake up to Caribbean sun your first view will be clear blue waters, golden sand and green palms.
The 2 bedroom, 2 en-suite bath villa offers a king size master bedroom with large, screened windows opening to the beach and sea, and another large sized bedroom with twin beds that can be joined to create a queen size bed.
The spacious living area, opening to the sea views, has an open plan kitchen great for entertainment, a separate area allowing for eating indoors and a place to relax on the sofas with a book or in front of the TV, if you found that the Caribbean sun is too much for you! The villa is fully air-conditioned, has flat screen TV and private Wi-Fi available.
The fully equipped kitchen with modern appliances will permit you as much as cooking a gourmet dinner or as little as just making yourself a good Italian expresso when you need reinforcements after a day of sport activities.
The inside is furnished in light, beach house style, bright and breezy, with eclectic choice of designer furnishings to capture the beach style living and colour palette inspired by water, sun and vegetation. All around the house you will find artwork created by the owner from what she found on the beaches and in the sea in Mamora Bay. Take inspiration and create your own artwork to take home from your holidays!
The very large terrace features a cozy and delightful dining area with additional space for entertaining and a lounging area with extremely comfortable sun loungers. The villa's terrace has an electrically operated windscreen which provides for an even more serene and sheltered feeling.
Evenings, spent on a terrace watching the sunset or the sky dotted with stars, listening to a breeze in the palms, gentle breaking of the high tide waves and a sound of tree frogs, your tropical evenings companion, will chill you out even more...
Located right on the beach, 'pieds dans l'eau', a walk away from resort's amenities, offers the best of both words: unobstructed views of the ocean, nearly empty golden sand beach right at your doorstep with sun parasols for your use exclusively and all the buzz of the resort's restaurants, water sports centre and swimming pools just a barefoot walk away.
The size of the villa and its terrace, comfortable and tasteful interior as well as beachfront location may make you to spend your entire holiday relaxing in the villa surrounded by spectacular views, with breaks for a dip in the sea and a snooze in the shade. But we encourage you to do more! The resort has two fabulous, sandy beaches, cleaned every day, so you can swim in warm clear Caribbean waters to your heart's content. From one ocean front beach you can swim or kayak as far as a coral reef and snorkel there and from the other, lagoon beach, you can set off windsurfing, paddle boating or sailing.
Enjoy all of St. James's Club facilities which you will find more than enough during your stay: 4 seafront restaurants, a beach bar and grill, or if you do not feel like getting up from your sun lounger, grab a drink from the drink cart passing by with astonishing regularity! Try your hand in sailing, kayaking, windsurfing and paddle boating under a watchful eye of seasoned water sports crew. Take part in beach volleyball matches, morning hikes, stretch, pilates and Abs classes every day or sweat on your own terms in fully equipped, air-conditioned workout gym! Play tennis or learn to play with resort's Pro on one of 4 floodlit tennis courts. And then take yourself to the beauty spa with a delightfully long menu of treatments.
