The villa, which has an estimated built area of around 250 sqm (2,690 sq ft) on a plot of approximately 1,500 sqm (16,145 sq ft), includes three-large double bedrooms with en suite bathrooms and a cosy fourth bedroom with twin-beds. The living room and dining room overlook and benefit from direct access to the large private pool which is set within a raised veranda and offers a good level of privacy. There’s also a separate, fully fitted kitchen on the same level. The main living areas and three of the four-bedrooms have air conditioning. There’s also a useful utility room. Flooring throughout is largely tiled and most rooms include white painted plaster walls with timber cladded ceilings.

A covered roof top terrace provides 360-degree views of the surrounding hillsides and sea. There’s secure onsite parking for approximately three-cars.
There is an area of hard standing below the pool with a basketball hoop that could easily be converted into a Paddle Tennis court, please note this is not a large enough area for a full-sized tennis court.
Reduit House was previously rented as a short-term holiday let so is sold furnished and ready to rent. The property comfortably sleeps six-to-eight guests.
The villa is within a ten-minute walk from the beautiful Reduit Beach with white sand, warm Caribbean Sea, water sports, beach bars and activities. Rodney Bay High Street is within a five-minutes’ walk where two supermarkets, banks, restaurants, cafes and bars can be found. There’s also a casino and golf course within easy reach.
The property is exceptionally well located and has been in the same family ownership for nearly 20-years. There is an opportunity to make various improvements that will add further value to the property and potentially increase rental revenue by restructuring the ground floor to incorporate the kitchen into the open plan living space, and by modernising some of the fittings and décor throughout the property.Read full details
Few Caribbean islands can compete with St Lucia for its standout super-charged natural beauty. As well as the electric blue sea and soft sand beaches this mountainous, volcanic island has a rainforest stuffed with flamboyant plants and exotic birdlife, cascading waterfalls and lush foliage. Then there are the mighty and mystical twin Pitons, a pair of steep green peaks that bookcase a golden beach and are a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The English and French tussled over St Lucia for 150 years before the English took definitive control in 1814 and the island retains a compelling blend of African, English and French influences. There is plenty of evidence of this history from the delightful tumble of pastel wooden houses in the original French capital of Soufrière to portraits of Queen Elizabeth II, the Head of State, in official buildings.
St Lucia is part of the southern Windward Islands lying in the eastern Caribbean Sea northwest of Barbados. The island covers 27 miles by 14 and enjoys a typically tropical climate with northeast trade winds keeping the average year round temperature at a comfortable 26ºC.
Today St Lucia is an independent nation and a member of the Commonwealth. It has an ever-improving infrastructure with excellent medical facilities. There are thirty-three Health Centres, three public hospitals and one private hospital – twenty minutes from the Landings. Utilities and telecommunications are good and there are extensive shopping facilities. The democratically elected government has focused successfully on stabilizing the economy, providing financial and political security for investors.
The Landings location on protected and calm Rodney Bay in the northwest of St Lucia provides instant access to the island’s main entertainment and sporting highlights. Rodney Bay marks the finish line for the Atlantic Rally of Cruisers, the world’s largest transoceanic race every December but as well as the myriad of water sports – take your pick from waterskiing, windsurfing, snorkelling, scuba diving, kite boarding, kayaking, swimming and sailing – there is something for all ages to enjoy on land.
St Lucia’s premier PGA Championship golf course is five minutes from The Landings and nearby there are smart restaurants, casual beach bars and Duty Free shopping. St Lucia has a formidable reputation for its many festivals. From the weekly informal Fish Friday Jump Up at Anse La Raye to the annual Jazz Festival in May this is an island that knows how to party and relishes the chance to turn up the reggae music and dance.
