Villa Alexandra, Estate of the Day
For your Friday fantasy we are whisking you off to the Terres Basses area of St. Martin in the West French Indies. This four-bedroom villa set amidst lush grounds, has been for rent for rates starting at $3,500 (a week). Of course, for a vacation villa one of the most important areas is the pool. Villa Alexandra has an infinity edge pool overlooking the lagoon that is surrounded by a large terrace with shady and sunny lounging spots. Inside, the decor is classic island villa, high-pitched white ceilings, French doors to let in the afternoon breezes and low maintenance tile floors. The grounds also include a four-story building that has four apartments which can be rented out. It is listed at 2.95 million euros. After the jump, step one, ditch the rental furniture.
