Upon entering Villa BOM (BOM), you’re immediately seduced by the breathtaking sea view, and the warm, comfortable-yet-slightly-exotic feeling of the interior design. Although this luxury villa is the work of architect François Pécard, who has spent the past 30 years designing many of the most prestigious homes on St. Barth, there’s something about it that may briefly transport you to Bali. The property has graceful rooflines and open pavilions that bring to mind breezy South Seas bales, exotic wenge wood floors and a stunning black lava-tiled pool that rises up from an expansive wood deck and overflows on all four sides. But as you settle in under the whitewashed wood ceilings, it becomes undeniable that you’re in the Caribbean—in fact, in one of the finest vacation homes in the West Indies.
At least as appealing as that heated swimming pool are the calm waves of St. Jean Beach. Right outside a digicode-locked gate, a short set of stairs leads directly onto the sandy shore, and the layout of this rental property is ideal for groups who don’t want to all have take the same sort of swim. Parents can lounge on the shaded pavilion and keep an eye on children in the pool or playing in the sand.
That’s not the only reason Villa BOM is family-friendly. Most of its living and sleeping spaces unfold across a single level. Four bedrooms are in the main house, along with the living and dining rooms, shaded outdoor dining area and gourmet kitchen. All of the bedrooms are generous in size and have sea views and luxurious full bathrooms stocked with Ligne St. Barth bath products. Two have four-posted king beds and private terraces, and two are outfitted with twin beds, which can be set up as a king, but there’s not a bad room among them. A fifth bedroom is housed in an independent pavilion with its own bathroom and fully equipped kitchen, making it an attractive option for a nanny or other guests who would like more privacy.
Sibarths’ concierge can also arrange for baby-sitting or child-friendly activities around the island. That doesn’t mean Villa BOM is only for young families. Families with adult children or groups of friends can also enjoy the space, perhaps enhanced with visiting massage therapists or yoga teachers, also arranged by the concierge.
Whatever your group looks like, you’ll appreciate the villa’s convenience—not only to St. Jean Beach but also to some of the island’s top restaurants. A supermarket, pharmacy and the airport are all within easy walking distance (though guests who rent via Sibarth are always greeted at the airport by an arrivals team, who takes them to their new island homes). The Pearl Beach Hotel and its lively restaurant are right next door, and villa guests can even offer room service.
Sibarth Bespoke Villa Rentals is proud to offer the refinement, subtle exoticism and superb beach location of Villa BOM.
