Top 4 Stunning Villas To Rent While on Mustique Island
#1 – Pangolin
On a coveted, secluded hilltop in the northeast corner of the island. This spacious plantation-style villa is surrounded by fruit and flower trees and has a magnificent view of Grenadine Island and the Atlantic Ocean.
In this design by Arne Hasselqvist, each bedroom has its outdoor deck, reminiscent of a cluster of pavilions. Pool decks and sun terraces, gazebos with hammocks, and a sprawling pool deck with a view of the ocean are the chief features of the house.
The rent ranges from $3000 for two people a night to $77,000 for all seven bedrooms during peak season, and it’s one of the only houses on the island offered on a fully flexible rental policy.
#2 – Les Jolies Eaux
In 1971, Oliver Messel designed this magnificent villa on the southern tip of the island for HRH Princess Margaret. This five-bedroom house, whose name translates into “Beautiful Waters,” was once the site of her famed cocktail parties.
The villa has two swimming pools: a plunge pool and an infinity pool. Additionally, a private sunbathing terrace, tropical gardens, and an outdoor gazebo are included. You can expect to pay between $20,500 and $40,000 a week for a taste of royal history.
#3 – Hummingbird
Paolo Piva, a mid-century modern architect from Italy, collaborated with Dan Kleinberg, an interior designer, on the design of this tri-level home. In addition to its beige- and cream-colored travertine, which mixes rough and smooth textures, owners of this home are drawn to its sophistication, clean lines, and unobstructed views.
Are you traveling with a large group? A travertine-equipped infinity pool is installed at the villa as well as in the guest house. Hummingbird is only available during the holidays. It can be rented by the ay or by week ($57,000-$85,500).

An infinity pool is built to connect with Britannia Bay and is surrounded by two ponds filled with koi and water lilies. A short time after Bowie’s death, Felix Dennis purchased the house and owned it until he passed away in 2014. Much of the house’s original architecture has been preserved. During the off-season, the seven-bedroom paradise can be rented for $40,000. What is one of the best parts?
