Relying on a gentle earth-tone palette and soothing textures, Villa Casamia exhibits a rare and coherent design aesthetic. An outdoor shower enclosed in bamboo, a Japanese tatami bed beside white curtains bathed in diffuse sunlight, the smooth grain of hand-carved Indonesian suar wood--such subtle design touches combine to create an extraordinarily relaxing atmosphere. You could enhance it with music, or simply enjoy the sound of the waves.
Villa Casamia's cleverly conceived layout creates a sense of openness and natural flow from one room to the next. From the main living area you enter the bedroom, where you can continue out onto the deck or through the dressing room to the outdoor rain-head shower, and from there back to the kitchen. The interior spaces are defined yet still fluid, perfectly melding with one another and with the outdoor environment.
My twin sister and I were turning 70 and wanted a great escape. We found it at Villa Raisiniers! We couldn't have imagined a more perfect villa. The villa itself was immaculate and designed to maximize its location right on the beach. The large deck, with its pool, comfortable lounge chairs and cozy dining table, made us never want to leave the property! We both fell in love with the island and will definitely rent Villa Raisiniers again. The rest of our families will have to find another place. =)
We decided to vacation this year in St. Barth's. My wife and I, and our two daughters. The island, the beach and the villa were wonderful. Mornings started by driving up the road about 5 minutes to a little bakery for pastries we took back home to eat on the table on the porch listening to and watching the waves. We walked on the beach each morning where we had the entire beach to ourselves. The girls played in the surf, loved the swimming pool and the trip was perfect. I highly recommend the hike to Colombier beach. You should rent a car and the smaller the better, we rented a Jeep Wrangler and it was a bit big for the roads. The villa is fantastic and if you are lucky enough to book, you will have a fantastic trip! We can not wait to go back!
It's a very pretty cottage and the decoration is much nicer than many of the typical houses on the island. It's very quiet and you can hear the ocean.
