Villa Messel 4 is located on the favoured and exclusive west coast. The property’s garden gate opens straight on to a stunning crescent of perfect coral sand. The clear, sheltered water is roped-off for safe swimming and is ideal for all water sports. There’s also a coral reef with excellent snorkeling. This house is perfect for family holidays. This elegant coral stone Palladian mansion is set in a lush tropical estate of nearly two acres. Built for a U.S. Ambassador over fifty years ago, the timeless good taste this property offers is hard to find in more recent properties. However, it has been kept up to date with modern amenities. The house is set in nearly two acres of mature, landscaped tropical gardens with many fine trees, fronting the immaculate Cobbler’s Cove beach. An impressive fifty foot pool leads the eye naturally from the house to the beach. Tiled in Italian green mosaic, the swimming pool blends beautifully with the lush tropical vegetation. At the far end of the garden alongside the beach is an octagonal “Chinese” gazebo, a wonderful place for sunset cocktails and long, leisurely meals cooled by the ocean breeze.The elegant garden gazebo by the beach seats up to fourteen. It is equipped with a wet bar and fridge. A dining table on the partly covered terrace can seat up to twenty. The coral stone formal dining room features a glass-topped table by Oliver Messel and seats up to twelve. The rooms are airy and mostly decorated in white with some green to complement the tropical surroundings. The beds are new and comfortable with one hundred percent high count cotton sheets and soft hypoallergenic pillows.
There are staff on hand including a cook, butler, maid/laundress, housekeeper, gardener and night watchman. Next-door at the Cobblers Cove Hotel tennis, gym and spa are available.
