Villa Cute, St. Barts
That whole anecdote about “Cute” being an insulting word doesn’t apply to this villa, which sets out to redefine the word. Cute is a two-bedroom two-bathroom villa in Toiny, St. Barts, with a close-up view of paradise from a high hill in Toiny. Its uncomplicated decor is enhanced by beautiful wood and natural textures so guests can appreciate the sumptuous feeling of Villa Cute. Simple, natural beauty needs no explanations or enhancements here.
The decor features raw pine wood, all-white upholstery to match the walls and vaulted ceilings, and a dining table that is a full tree round laid flat so the rings pool out from the center. Wicker chairs with raw pinewood frames are situated around this under the veranda which opens out onto a pool terrace. The view is of the bay pushing up against the point to the far left. Blue skies and open waters blend in a cheerful meeting on the horizon.
In the main room, a plush white couch looks like the fluffy white clouds over the ocean view. A low, triangular table adds modern flair to the country charm from the palm-frond lampshades and woven grass baskets, to glass cabinets, antique tile on the kitchen island, and wood floors. The kitchen has some classic country touches like glass cabinets, gunmetal drawer handles, back splash tile, and driftwood accents, but the brand-new appliances and hi-tech oven hood bring the space into the modern era.
There are two king bedrooms at Villa Cute, great for a family or small group of friends to enjoy. Each bedroom comes with an iPod dock, air-conditioning, ceiling fan, Apple television, safe, and en-suite bathroom with shower, vanity, and water closet. The decor in the bedrooms is consistent with the rest of the house with tasteful white linens enhanced by palm frond decoration. The master bedroom is a four-poster and opens onto the poolside terrace. The poolside has two lounge chairs and a cabana sofa tucked up against the green jungle canopy behind.
Among the various comforts offered by Cute, expert hands keep things running at the villa with housekeepers in daily*, a pool person and gardener on-staff, and a property manager on-call. Any arrangements for further activities, bookings, tickets, or travel, including in-villa spa treatments, private chefs, and catered gatherings, can be arranged by speaking to a complimentary concierge.

The villa is beautiful—decor and view are perfection. Kitchen is well equipped and everything is in good working order. Pool was perfectly warm, but not too warm. My only minimal complaint is the fact that it’s right on the main road so cars etc are constantly going by and detracting from the sound of the ocean. That said, the location is convenient and an easy and quick walk to the beach. Also an easy drive to many good hikes.
Our concierge, Sylvain, was excellent. Very responsive and helpful.
