St Barth’s Villa Sky adds “The Peg Walsh Room”

Wednesday, February 6th, 2013

It’s true, the owners of the beautiful Villa Sky call their brand new second master bedroom, “The Peg Walsh Room.” Why? Because I am the person who suggested that they replace the media room and dining room and convert them into one big room: another en suite master bedroom. Adding a 5th bedroom here makes the villa even more appealing to couples and families.

Constructing anything in St. Barth always takes longer – WAY longer – than a contractor promises and getting delivery of new appliances and furniture via container ship pretty much never arrives when it is supposed to. It’s “Island Time,” after all. So, when the owners muttered, “The Peg Walsh Room” it often meant, “Why did we ever listen to Peg?”

Not so now – I went up to Petite Saline to inspect the new Villa Sky and toured the property with the very proud owners; they had taken advantage of the time it would take to add the new bedroom to completely update the kitchen and to refurbish the bathrooms. I love the results! The new master is privately located on the right hand side of the villa and has its own entrance, a 4-poster king bed, a 50” Satellite TV and DVD player and en suite bath with double sinks, a toilet and a rain shower.

On to the brand new kitchen: The lady of the house is a wonderful cook so the kitchen was designed just for her and also for you if you enjoy cooking while you are on vacation. Many people find it to be very relaxing to do so. Valcucine cabinetry and appliances are the top of the line and the wine cooler features two temperatures – one for whites and one for the reds. The kitchen is air conditioned and can be closed off from the living room if guests prefer to hire a private chef. There is a separate entrance from the driveway.

The other master bedroom with en suite bath is on the left hand side of the living room as is the adjacent king/twin bedroom with renovated en suite bath. Two more bedrooms (king and queen) are on the he pool level and also boast renovated en suite baths. There are oodles of places to enjoy outdoor living and you will be mesmerized by the stunning view and photographical sunsets. Oh and that 44 Ft. heated swimming pool – delightful! If you need to burn some calories as a result of trying all of those fabulous St. Barth restaurants, there’s a glassed enclosed fitness room that includes among other things, two treadmills; you can enjoy the view while you are huffing and puffing.

Villa Sky is centrally located and is fully screened. All of the bedrooms, the kitchen and the fitness room have AC. The villa is an ideal choice for those looking for privacy, a peaceful setting, outstanding views and comfort.
