Timeless and grand in its handsome design, Villa JOY has six en suite bedrooms. That dual character is thanks in part to the designer’s abundant use of warm-toned tropical wood for the walls, ceilings, and floors. This alone makes Villa JOY a special rarity on St. Barth.

A deck that runs the length of the house features an extra-long and heated infinity pool with the impressive views over Marigot Bay. It’s the focal point of the outdoor living space that includes a portico sheltering a conversation area and a dining table with seating for fourteen. A BBQ and food prep area are tucked away in the corner, at-the-ready.

Each of the six minimalist but stylish bedrooms is ensuite, and five have king-size beds. The master bedroom is on the main level, off the living room, and has its own entrance from the pool deck, as well as his and hers walk-in closets and indoor and outdoor rain showers. Two of the lesser bedrooms are downstairs on the lower level of this main building, along with the cinema, gym, and hammam.

Villa JOY’s contemporary architecture and décor are complemented with an homage to mid-century movie stars. Stylized drawings and framed black and white photos of Marilyn or Frank appear playfully throughout.

About Author

Monique Turbé grew up in a family of five children. Before becoming a respected hotelier, her father, Guy Turbé, was one of the first contractors on the Island. At the age of 18, Monique Turbé started her first construction, like her father, the “White Sand Beach Cottages, in Flamands. This property attracted prestigious guests, like Jackie Kennedy-Onassis and her son John-John, or Roman Polanski. In 2013, the Villa Mélissa was sold to a Venezuelan couple that fell in love with the property. Monique then decided to buy and renovate a new property that she called like her granddaughter: the “Villa Lenalee”. With this new property, Monique Turbé, created MY VILLA IN ST- BARTH, an exclusive concierge service dedicated to her two private villas. One of Guy Turbé’s last dreams was to see Monique create her own real estate company to look after the villas he had built and carry on the legacy. As an homage to her beloved father, she became the founder, chairman and partner of MY VILLA IN ST BARTH Real Estate, the first real estate agency founded by a St-Barths native and a villas owner.
