Everyone in the island knows this spot. There's no place like it: private, exposed only to the breeze that softens the edge the Caribbean sun. Magnificent sunrise, crystalline water, this villa occupies the best spot on the island.
Pure adventure, rugged, unique, and off-the-beaten path - there's no place like Providencia.
Once in Providencia, Monasterio del Viento (Wind Monastery) adds to the magic, the art and mystery of the island. Wake up to a glorious pink sunrise, step out onto the balcony perched above calm turquoise waters while the kitchen staff prepares morning breakfast with tropical juices, Colombian coffee, fresh cut papaya, organic eggs and delicious local arepas.
Monasterio del Viento sits on the small volcanic island of Old Providence and Santa Catalina, hidden away in the most remote corner of the Caribbean.
Inhabited by warm, loving and caring people, Providencia is a place where nature and all her gifts are valued and protected. An environment of peace and tranquility, harmonious and unified, not fragmented or exploited.
Located on Maracaibo Bay, Monasterio is perched above a sea of seven shades of turquoise looking out towards Crab Key, directly within the borders of the National Park McBean Lagoon. This is part of the expansive UNESCO designated marine territory called the Seaflower Biosphere Reserve.
The house itself has been lovingly restored with charming artistic details throughout. It represents the best of Caribbean style living. It's rustique, comfortable and casual with spectacular views of the water in every direction. A soft year round breeze can be felt throughout the house.
The covered deck on the water (palapa) is ideal for early morning meditation and Yoga. Take a nap after lunch on one the double lounge chairs or hammocks strung up around house.
Inside the main house there are two large open and airy bedrooms, each containing a full ensuite bathroom. Both look out over the turquoise water below. One has a fantastic large shaded veranda, complete with hammocks, chair and table. It's the best place to unwind, anytime of the day. The other section of the property has a large two level loft area, ideal for families with children staying at the house. The lower has a queen and a single bed and a full bathroom. The upper level has another queen and single bed in a spacious area.
