The Villa: Palm Beach

West of Barbados, Mustique is an idyllic island in the Caribbean that offers a wide range of beautiful villas for rent. Stop by the nearby Basil’s Bar, a cultural hub of the area. Locals and visitors from all walks of life love the relaxed atmosphere at Basil’s.


Overlooking six acres of beachfront, the Palm Beach villa was built in 1999 in Palladian style and boasts views of stunning L’Ansecoy Bay. The home is a standout for luxury and comfort. Enjoy a meal prepared by the live-in chef in the elegant dining room, spend the daytime in the poolside gazebo, and cozy nights in the home cinema.
