Etoile de Mer (Star of the Sea)

Etoile de Mer (Star of the Sea)


Property Details

Updated: Sep 21, 2014
House, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, 8 Sleeps

Nestled in lush vegetation on .75 acre of old Taylor Bay beach front , Etoile de Mer offers the best of all worlds - 15-year old coconut palms swaying in the breeze, private tennis courts, and the beauty of Taylor Bay. As one renter wrote upon arrival, "This is insane! It's gorgeous!"

Architecturally, Etoile de Mer combines the inspiration of gingerbread Caribbean manor houses and modern restoration - new kitchen, new hurricane doors and shutters, new swimming pool, new hardware, new paint, new stucco, new roof, new pool deck tile - making it an exception of character on an island filled with huge, white-marble mcmansions.

The house is sited perfectly to catch the island breezes through new jalousie doors and windows. The wrap-around veranda allows guests to sit in peace surrounded by coconut palms and marvel at the beauty of the bay during the day and the miracle of sunsets in the evening.

Just 100 steps away, Taylor Bay, which many have called the most beautiful beach in the Caribbean, is the only beach which does not have public land access except for renters who can walk on the fine white sands, swim in its chrystaline turquoise waters, or take one of the kayaks provided at Etoile into the Caribbean. You can also snorkel on the coral point on the west side of the bay.

Or succumb to the gentle breezes and relax in Etoile's salt-water pool (no chlorine) surrounded by bougainveilla or read a book under the pool-side gazebo.

Want to play tennis? Do so on the private tennis courts, complimentary to you and your guests.

In the evenings, enjoy one of Provo's fabulous international restaurants, grill your own food on the five-burner stainless steel grill on the upper pool deck, or invite a chef into Etoile to pamper you and your guests. Even better, ask him to fix dinner for you on the beach.

The next morning, be the only one on the beach and, if you're lucky, see a starfish, Etoile's name sake, in the clear water's edge.

Experience Etoile de Mer, a villa that will feel like your own. You'll love it so much, you'll come back like so many others have.

We want to thank you so very, very much for sharing Etoile de Mer with our families. YOur home on Taylor Bay is very special. We made lasting memories and even got engaged in the amazing waters of the bay! Your house was a perfect place to wake up, spend the day, and fall asleep to the breezy tradewinds. Your management agent was such a delight and an extremely helpful person from the moment we met her. We will forever cherish all the memories made in Provo and look forward to making more in the future. We will definitely be back to visit Etoile de Mer!

Etoile is Awesome

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Etoile de Mer for a week last January. We had such a wonderful time we are eager to return. We were impressed at how close it was to the beach, yet it seems very private. The short walking trail that takes you to the beach skirts the private tennis court. And those two courts are in excellent condition and we really enjoyed a few sets out there!

The house is wonderful! It has verandas on all sides and is perfectly laid out. Four couples can stay there and each will feel as if they have a private suite. Yet when you want to gather for some fun, the kitchen, dining, and living rooms are spacious enough for all. We really liked the pool and Gazebo. You can relax out there for hours or take a nap on the big hammock.

The island is a lot of fun and very friendly. The restaurants are great with a lot of variety too. Taylor Bay is perfect for swimming, snorkeling, and kayaking. It is nicely sheltered so even small children feel safe there.

Overall, Etoile de Mer is an idyllic spot for an island getaway!

Thanks again Margaret, your house is beautiful, wonderfully comfortable and very well equipped. (my only confusion was the many varied blender parts with very few matching:) luckily we did find one base, container and top that matched! for the obligatory frozen drinks!) The Island breezes through the house were amazing, despite the sunny summer temps we never felt hot. Collectively we have all spent a lot of time in South Carolina (our summer vacation spot of choice for over 30 years) I think our group can all agree that Taylor Bay and your home made summers in South Carolina a distant memory. We cannot wait to come back, and are already making plans to do so. Thanks again

Wonderful Family House

We had a wonderful time at Etoile de Mer. The house was perfect for our group. The kids loved the pool, the short walk to the beach, and of course the tennis courts. We rented cars and explored the island and it's beautiful beaches. The snorkeling was amazing, and the people were really friendly. It was our first trip to Turks and Etolie De Mer but we will definately be back - what a wonderful spot. Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us.
