In nature, a cypraea is a type of sea animal in a vividly patterned cowrie shell. On the island of St. Barth, Villa Cypraea (CYP) is a luxury rental property with subtle charms and compelling sea views. The newly built vacation home is in the heights of the understated Flamands area, near the beach of the same name, as well as Gustavia and St. Jean. It has splendid views over the sea and the surrounding islands.
Villa Cypraea is modern and comfortably appointed. Its layout over two levels, with bedrooms in separate bungalows, makes it well suited to couples travelling together or parents with an adult child. Of course, the Sibarth concierge can plan special surprises for any sort of group.
By day, guests share time in the open-plan great room, which has a cozy living area, kitchen with plenty of counter space and an island, and a compact dining table where a group of four can comfortably prepare and share memorable meals. This area is fully air-conditioned.
One of the bedrooms has a queen bed and is located on this main level with a view over and direct access to the swimming pool and sun terrace. The second bedroom is upstairs. It has a European king-size bed and its own terrace. Each bedroom has private access, an ensuite bathroom with a rain head shower, playful orange cushions and curtains, and other amenities. Only the lower bedroom has a television. However, both have sea views.
