West End St Thomas
Langarra Estate, with its green lawns and constant, welcoming breeze, is part of a historic 300-acre sugar plantation, now the prestigious, secluded 'Preserve at Botany Bay.' Langarra's quiet and private hilltop site overlooks the Preserve's forested slopes, over its inlet bays, and out over the dramatic necklace of surrounding, uninhabited ocean cays and islands -- a 30-mile view.

European simplicity combines with West Indian sensuality in furnishings, paintings and details throughout the house. With soaring ceilings above, and cool coral-stone floors underfoot, the light-filled interiors maximize the expanses of sky, sea and garden-green seen from every part of the house.

There are four spacious bedroom suites, all with ocean views, large bathrooms and closets, and outdoor terraces. A fifth, queen bedroom/bath suite has its own adjacent living area and mini-kitchen -- perfect for teens, nannies, family elders, or those who may want a bit of separation.

Indoor living spaces extend outward onto the oversized, umbrella-shaded terraces. Sunlight enlivens the site from dawn until soaked-sky sunset hours... and our night skies are peppered with stars.

A large infinity edge pool overlooks the sea...and moments away on the private grounds of the Preserve, three unique beaches are yours to enjoy, often with no one else in sight: pristine, exquisite Sandy Beach (for sunning, bodysurfing, picnicking) ... and Mermaid's Chair, the dramatic, delicate double-beach (good for swimming, exploring, beachcombing), where the Atlantic Ocean and the warmer Caribbean Sea converge and blend. Close by, the folding lines of waves at Botany Bay are the envy of surfers, and the bay's protected, coral-rich shores are a snorkeler's delight. Guests can linger at the bay's open-air, oceanside Beach House pavilion to enjoy the Preserve community's Olympic-sized pool, changing rooms, small kitchen and outdoor lounge terraces. Here, too, under the filtered canopy of a deep grove of tall coconut and mango trees, are the evocative ruins of the 18th century sugar mill buildings that created rum from the sugar cane harvests brought down from the terraced slopes of these hills, two centuries ago.

Newly completed in December 2014, Estate Langarra gently combines its fresh spirit with nature's age-old sensibilities.

Just a short 20-minute drive away are the attractions of town: world-class shopping, gourmet and casual dining, grocery stores, ferries, entertainment, nightlife, and tours.

Each day your choice becomes to enjoy the peace, space, sun, and utter privacy of Langarra and its beaches ...or take time beyond the gates to savor more 'connected' first-world pursuits, albeit island style.
