Akasha sits on a hillside in the exclusive Cap Estate overlooking the Caribbean Sea with views down to the world heritage site of the Pitons and of the national park, Pigeon Island. A contemporary villa designed for Caribbean living on the island of St. Lucia, Akasha combines the best of modern living with the relaxed lifestyle of the Caribbean. Every room boasts spectacular views, with huge floor to ceiling windows and minimum distractions from the stunning vistas. Crestron panels located on each floor allow you to manage all the music, lighting, entertainment systems, security, air conditioning, fans and security gates. At night time choose a scene from the Lutron lighting system, there are blue LED lights to create a tranquil environment.
The great room includes the lounge, dining space and the kitchen. The lounge is equipped with 50″ plasma and Natuzzi leather seating. If you fold the 10 foot high glass doors then you can fully appreciate the views or just walk onto the main terrace where further seating allows you to relax in the gentle breeze which blows across the location. In the kitchen you will find an Italian Scavolini kitchen equipped with two ovens, microwave, fridge and freezer, dishwasher. In the island unit there is an ice maker, wine cooler, an additional sink and seating for six. You can serve those special dishes either inside on the large glass dining table which has seating for 12, outside on the dining terrace or in the intimate outdoor nook area.
The detail and thought put into the design includes strategic locations of windows allowing the breeze to pass through the house and reducing the need for the air conditioning making the villa more environmentally friendly. The eco thinking has extended to capturing rain water in a separate tank and installation of solar panels for hot water.
Akasha also boasts a 9 seat theater with a 110″ screen with the best in sound quality. The room was constructed using “floating” room techniques found in world famous concert halls. The games room offers the opportunity to play some pool, poker or table tennis. Take the elevator upstairs and entertain guests in the main bar area and play the 1976 Yamaha Grand Piano. The elevator travels up further to the master floor level. The master bedroom boasts a super king size bed with views over Pigeon Island and a private balcony. The top level has a look-out for watching the world go by or star gazing at night. This gorgeous vacation villa can be rented here.
