"The best of both worlds" is something of a travel marketing cliche, but in the case of the newly built luxury rental apartment in Gustavia that is known as the Loft (ADL), that phrase could not be more apt. Stylish, cosmopolitan, and convenient as can be, the vacation home also has all of the amenities that you might want on your private villa holiday. Right in the middle of town, the Loft (ADL) puts its fortunate occupants in close proximity to the boutiques, restaurants, and nightclubs of Gustavia while also sequestering them in their own sophisticated, secluded enclave. That level of privacy and discretion, combined with the high-quality finishes and furnishings and the general sense of St. Barth chic proves that luxurious things can come in small packages. Once you're inside the Loft, the bustle of Gustavia quickly melts away. The large living room, with its appealingly eclectic mix of midcentury designer elements, Caribbean ease, and inviting natural materials like the leather of the couch and the armchairs, and the wicker of the pod-like hanging chair opens onto the pool and an intimate terrace, which have tremendous views over the harbor and the ocean. To one side of this relaxing living space is an expansive, well-thought-out kitchen, which has a large island for socializing while cooking. (Or if you'd rather just focus on your companion or companions, concierge can arrange for a chef to take care of all the meals or to arrange other surprises for your stay.) The master bedroom lies to the other side of the living room. The room has a European king bed, an ensuite bathroom that merges seamlessly into the sleeping quarters, and a lovely private terrace with sea views. An optional second bedroom downstairs makes the Loft versatile enough to accommodate young families as well as romance-seeking couples.
