The seduction begins the moment you arrive at Lina Villa, as you pass through a verdant arbor and beside a small pond surrounded by beautiful exotic plants. Then it is enhanced, as you step into the cool sanctum of the gracious, flowing living area. Designed by noted architect Johannes Zingerle, this luxury rental villa was built to be a vacation home distinguished by its comfort, feeling of well-being and subtly contemporary details.

Lina Villa invites laid-back island living with its blissfully secluded location, clean-lined furnishings, artful details like coral-pattern cushions on the long, low-slung gray couches and an eye-catching photograph of a woman’s face, wearing lipstick in Murakami’s rendition of the beloved Louis Vuitton logo. This vacation home’s playfulness is welcome in this tranquil environment, which is defined by its cooling ocean breezes and spectacular Caribbean Sea views beyond Colombier and Flamands beaches, as well as the surrounding emerald-colored hills.

The views are commanding everywhere: the living area, the terrace, the bedrooms and especially the endlessly inviting infinity pool. And the visuals inside are just as natural and appealing, as the main materials are wood and stone, which merge the indoors and out. And, of course, light. Large bay windows in the front and the rear allow sunlight to stream in and Villa Lina’s privileged guests look out. They can be opened to let the breezes waft through.

Well-suited to families — Lina Villa's layout includes two good-size bedrooms on either side of the spacious living area. Each has its own private bathroom with a walk-in shower and dressing area. A third, smaller bedroom is suitable for young children or a nanny, and has a bathroom right across the hall. The villa also includes an outdoor shower.
