Just 100 steps from Taylor Bay, what many have called the most beautiful beach in the Caribbean, this architect-designed and owned home is a favorite of visitors year after year. Set next to private tennis courts in a private community of 28 half-acre lots but just 11 homes, Etoile de Mer (Star of the Sea) has lush grounds with towering coconut palms, a salt-water pool, and ample room for a gathering of families or friends.
Guests have privacy in their ensuite bedrooms (2 kings and 2 queens) and gather in the many communal spaces - front veranda, screened porch, pool deck, and gazebo.
Begin your morning with coffee in the screened porch or gazebo or carry it with you for a half-mile walk on the beach where often you will be the only person. Then spend your day at the pool, on the tennis courts, at the beach, kayaking (4 kayaks provided), playing golf, snorkeling, diving (some of the best in the world), deep sea fishing, bone fishing or on a boat trip to an uninhabited island.
Evenings, walk the beach with a glass of wine in hand, cook freshly caught lobster on the 5-burner, stainless steel grill, lay on a lounge and look at the stars, or dine at one of the many international restaurants. Sleep in peace, knowing you have another day in paradise.

We live in Colorado fulltime but travel to Etoile several times a year, with family and friends. Our children have become very popular since we purchased Etoile!
