Property of the Day: Seastar Mustique
THE PROPERTY: This five-bedroom waterfront villa is one of the island’s original villas by Oliver Messel, the theatrical designer behind some of the Caribbean’s most sought-after homes. Expect warm sea breezes and beaches with sand as white and fine as flour, where the only sounds are those of crickets in the nearby foliage and the serene lapping of waves from the villa’s private beach.
THE LOCATION: Mustique is a private island that is as famous for its celebrity sun-seekers as it is for its beaches; Seastar is minutes away from Mick Jagger’s house, which is just down the road from Tommy Hilfiger.
THE INTERIOR: Surrounded by lush tropical gardens, the main living-room and dining-room are at the heart of this property, serviced by the adjoining kitchen area. The dining-room opens onto a large terrace for outside dining or entertaining right on the sea. The villa is made up of five bedroom suites, with a master bedroom facing the beach, with his and hers bathrooms. On the shorefront is a swimming pool skirted by a terraced bar area, providing further outside dining and entertaining space.
WHY WE LOVE IT: The grand pool pavilion and bar lend themselves to idyllic outdoor entertaining, with uninterrupted views of the Caribbean Sea.
