Banyan Plantation Villa, sleeps up to 6

Banyan Villa is the largest of our St lucia bungalows, with 4 separate beds (king, queen, and two singles), two bathrooms, kitchen and veranda. Two bedrooms have a connecting door, and the living room offers two single beds, making this cottage particularly suitable for groups or larger families with young children.

This 1365 sq feet st lucia bungalow is surrounded by tropical gardens and looks out onto a 200 year old banyan tree.  The natural wood walls and hardwood floors create a warm and cozy feel. West Indian and Asian-inspired design elements add to its unique charm.

The bathrooms in this villa rental are interconnected, making this rental more suitable for couples, families or close friends to share. There is an indoor shower, a separate half bath and a beautiful outdoor shower. The kitchen is equipped with basic cooking utensils, gas stove, oven and full size fridge.

The story of Banyan

The original wooden 2 room structure was built in the 1960’s, and served as a home for the former estate caretaker and his family. In the early 1990’s, the house was renovated and expanded to include indoor bathrooms and a kitchen, living room and veranda. The first visitors who stayed in banyan were volunteers, family and friends. Over the years, various improvements have been made, including structural repairs, better furniture and fixtures, solar hot water and high speed internet.

Future renovation plans include painting or replacing some of the natural dark wood to brighten up the interior, and adding an additional deck and plunge pool.
