Villa L'Esperance, also known as MA ESP, is a contemporary 5-bedroom villa located in South Side within minutes of the beach and shopping. Originally the home of a 1950’s movie actress, this property high on Flag Hill has been beautifully renovated.
The great room has floor-to-ceiling windows, which open to the views. The gourmet kitchen and expansive family room open to a spacious stonework patio (home of the famous flag of Flag Hill) and a breathtaking view.
The main level has 3 bedroom suites, including a master suite with its own secluded sitting room. Two bedrooms have king-size beds, while the third bedroom has twin beds that can be made into a king-size bed. The main floor also contains a media room with a large-screen TV, extensive movie collection, full bathroom, and sofa bed. The media room may be used as an extra bedroom.
The other 2 bedrooms are located on the lower level and overlook the pool. One bedroom has a king-size bed, while the other bedroom has twin beds that can be made into a king-size bed. Each bedroom enjoys direct access to an exterior deck and its own bathroom.
A deck surrounds the pool, which has an adjacent shaded pool house with refrigerator, gas grill, and full bathroom. Near the pool deck is a stonework pathway lined with diverse tropical plantings and citrus trees. A separate building houses a well-equipped fitness area.
This fully air-conditioned villa also has an automatic generator, outdoor shower, WiFi, gas grill, and PlayStation 2. A small cottage on the far side of property houses the villa’s 2 caretakers and their dog. This villa requires a 7-night minimum stay during Thanksgiving (10 nights during Christmas) and a $1,000 security deposit. A 4-wheel drive vehicle is recommended.
Villa L'Esperance, or MA ESP, comes with mid-week house cleaning service. Ask your villa specialist for detail. During the Thanksgiving and December holidays, the villa rents at full occupancy rates regardless of how many bedrooms are used. Photos compliments of Don Hebert.
