Just steps away from one of the island's liveliest, prettiest beaches, as well as the many gustatory and sartorial pleasures of Gustavia, the newly built Villa Shell Beach is a dream of pure design. With interiors conceived by the esteemed Karine Bruneel of French Indies Design, the luxury rental property exudes a quiet, tactile luxury. Pale colors, natural materials, and abundant windows that let in plenty of light combine to form a tableau of tranquility. And the view over Gustavia Harbor speaks for itself. Villa Shell Beach is a home that is well suited to couples traveling together or parents traveling with an adult child. A large, gracious area for living, dining and cooking merges gracefully with terrace and pool. With the glass-curtain walls pulled open, the tropical air and island breezes infuse the house with Caribbean comfort. The two bedrooms lie on opposite sides of this central gathering area. Equal in size, they both have ensuite bathrooms, European king beds, glass doors that open directly onto the terrace, and stylish details like birdcage hanging lamps and richly patterned panels flanking the bed. Along with the modern, well-equipped, and airy kitchen, the villa includes an outdoor grilling area and table for alfresco dining.
