The Tamarind House is a large accommodation with beautiful plant life surrounding the villa. The house itself is filled with intricate furniture, perfect for being enjoyed intimately or at large parties. A wonderful tamarind tree provides shade and cools the house during the day, and a private pool is available when you don't want to make the short, five-minute drive to the beach. The villa includes a beautiful courtyard with banana plants that gives it the perfect exotic feel. The cottage, located separately, is like a small house in itself, and the rich, delightful decorations will please not only you, but any guest you might invite.
Tamarind House is a 4-bedroom, 4-bath villa that is located just off the Anse Chastanet Road; approximately 1.5 miles from Soufriere and 5 minutes from Anse Chastanet beach.
Covering 8,850 square feet of space, this exceptionally large house is constructed of local stone with high greenheart ceilings and Barbados tile floors throughout. The main house has three bedrooms and three bathrooms, while the separate Cottage is a master bedroom suite with its own living room, kitchen, dressing area, marble bathroom, king-size four-poster bed and terrace.
A staircase descending from the car park, leads you into a courtyard filled with banana plants and flowers. As you pass through the arched doorway, the enormous 2,550-square-foot living room stretches away before you and leads to the terrace where the tamarind tree grows up out of the tiles. This remarkable tree provides shade and coolness to the house throughout the day.
The living room features two seven-foot settees and a very large travertine stone coffee table. The dining table seats 6-8 and the wild breadfruit trestle table can be used for large parties.
The master bedroom is 640 square feet of bedroom and private terrace with an antique queen-size four-poster bed, side tables, a hand-carved standing cheval mirror, and small armoire. There is a walk-in closet with a safe, and an Italian tiled bathroom with tub/shower and two sinks. The view of the Pitons from the bed is framed by bougainvillea climbing the stone walls
The second bedroom has 415 square feet of bedroom and private terrace with a double four-poster bed, carved standing mirror, two side tables with Chinese blue and white lamps, and a marble topped antique table beside the walk-in closet. The ensuite marble bathroom with shower has quality fixtures and a chrome mirror.
The third bedroom is for children and has a double and a single four-poster bed. It also has its own private terrace and Italian tiled bathroom with shower.
The Cottage master bedroom suite has three graceful stone arch openings and 30-foot-high ceilings. Long white curtains line each doorway and flow out with the breeze. Two large 7-foot couches with blue and white cushions, a large coffee table, and antique tables beside the king-size red cedar four-poster bed help make this a private romantic space. A collection of paintings by St. Kitts artist Kate Spencer are on display here. A dressing area with chest of drawers, and hanging cupboard and shelves leads into the marble tiled bathroom with shower. One hundred percent Egyptian cotton sheets, French linen bed covers, and plush towels will pamper you. The Cottage has its own kitchen and terrace with dining table and chairs.
The 35 x 15-foot private pool is situated below the Cottage and has 1,060 square feet of terrace and shade pavilion around it. The pool edge is open on one side to give uninterrupted views of the Pitons.
The house also has a professional-size tennis court with a Bioflex surface and, of course, a view of the Pitons as you play.

Tamarind House, St. Lucia review Visited: May 2016
The house is magical with its open-air living space, large terraces, private pool and tennis court, and excellent amenities. The only thing better than the house itself was the wonderful staff who ensured that we were well-fed with island delicacies, who handled grocery shopping for us so we could relax, and who always offer a friendly smile or laugh. We miss Tamarind House already and are plotting for our next trip to stay there! Thank you!
Andrew was fantastic -- he promptly replied to all emails and questions; he was very knowledgeable about the house, staff, and the island; and he made sure that everything (e.g., groceries) was taken care of well ahead of time so that we could simply kick back and relax during our stay. Thanks Andrew!

Tamarind House, St. Lucia review Visited: November 2013
What a wonderful Stay we had at Tamarind House. The villa was wonderful and the staff, Cheryl and Ann were just the best and most helpful AND they prepared wonderful meals. We woke each morning to the sunshine, ocean, Pitons, flowers and singing birds. The view from this Villa took our breath away every day, It was spectacular! Would highly recommend this villa for groups or families!!

Tamarind House, St. Lucia review Visited: March 2012
Posted by lshak
We spent a week at Tamarind House in St Lucia. The villa was absolutely immaculate, spacious, well-appointed, and offered the most beautiful views in every direction! We couldn't have chosen a better villa.
The staff was great, too. They were very professional, friendly, helpful, and accommodating. The chefs prepared such delicious meals for us. We especially enjoyed the homemade coconut chips, and gelato.
The roads were a bit rough. A four-wheel-drive auto is recommended for good reason. The nearby beach was within walking distance, and we used our return climb to the villa as an aerobic workout each day!
Tamarind House was phenomenal!
