The Caribbean island of Mustique in St Vincent and the Grenadines is home to picture-perfect villas elevated above the sea and designed in a manner to give its residents 360 views of lush tropical surroundings. Mustique became a famous celebrity retreat in the 70s when Princess Margaret built her own villa on the island.
Yemanja, which translates to the "Goddess of the Sea" is a 5 bedroom villa which can be rented for $22,000/week. Included is a guest cottage with 3 additional bedrooms, plus the Children's Quarters with 4 more rooms (for an additional $2,500/week). Yemanja has three pools: an infinity edge pool with spectacular ocean views, a lap pool and a kids pool for the youngest guests. You don't even have to worry about renting a car. 4 large Kawasaki Mules are available for guest use.
The villa was built by a renowned Mexican architect Manolo Mestre. It's located 300 feet above the sea and overlooks Macaroni Beach on Mustique. There are 19,000 square feet of living space with several living and dining areas, entertainment rooms and a tennis court.
The Yemanja chef and butler make sure that your every wish is attended to. Gourmet food with fresh fresh tropical juices, salads and homemade breads is at your disposal 24/7. Choose from seafood dishes and fusion meals with Caribbean, European and Asian influences. Mustique has a grocery store, a fish market and two hotels, Firely and Cotton House.
