Exclusive St. Bernard's Hill House is the top of the world for those who seek privacy and a catered holiday in cool and breezy seclusion; your stay includes the talents of a gourmet chef for your dining pleasures.
St. Bernard's spacious Main Pavilion comprises the richly-decorated Great Room, a dining room which seats 10, spacious well-equipped kitchen, an air-conditioned study with a computer and a powder room. Arched doorways open out to a wonderful deep covered verandah which spans three sides of this Pavilion, overlooking the Caribbean and Atlantic's blue majesty dotted with green islands and cays.
On the south side of the Main Pavilion is a manicured lawn which borders a wonderfully unique terrace overlooking the yachts coming and going below in Sopers Hole and a panoramic vista of islands and sea clear to the distant horizon. A few stairs from the lawn area descend to the superb infinity-edged pool is heated 24/7. A shaded alcove sitting area is just off the deck, adjoined by a full bath and an outside shower.
From the main entrance of the Main Pavilion, a walkway meanders through lovely gardens and tropical trees to the separate Oriental Cottage, tucked just far enough away from the Main Pavilion to provide romantic privacy. This air-conditioned Cottage features a roomy covered hardwood verandah which wraps around two sides of the Cottage.
The Double Cottage is just adjacent to the Main Pavilion. This unique, two-bedroom, two-bath air-conditioned Cottage is just perfect for parents and small children. It offers the Contemporary and Caribbean suites under one roof joined by an interior hallway. The Contemporary suite has its own en-suite bath, and a cool, shaded L-shaped verandah via screened french doors. The adjoining Caribbean suite also has an en-suite tiled bath and a verandah overlooking the bustling marine activity below in Sopers Hole and St. John beyond. Both imbuia-wood verandahs are connected at the front of Double Cottage for easy access to both adjoining suites.
Next door to Double Cottage is the charming Colonial Cottage, a separate air-conditioned bungalow with en-suite bath and a wraparound verandah furnished with chairs and tables overlooking expanses of ocean and green islets and cays. Below Double Cottage is the air-conditioned home gym, well equipped with varied fitness gear, mirrors, a TV, DVD player, an iPod dock/CD player, and beautiful bamboo flooring.
