The tropical isles of the Caribbean are famous for their exquisite pristine beaches and coconut-tree-clad mountains. Owning a Caribbean home—be it in the Bahamas, Turks & Caicos Islands, St. Lucia, St. Barts, Barbados, the Cayman Islands, or on any other Caribbean island—is quite like having your very own piece of paradise. Sustainable “green” building has become prevalent in the Caribbean, in an attempt to preserve its stunning islands’ natural beauty and resources. Many Caribbean homes contain covered open spaces to allow for a balance between outdoor living space and protection form the sun. Caribbean homes are usually positioned to provide protection from hurricane winds and many have hurricane shutters and reinforced ventilated roofs.
Here, Haute Residence takes you on a tour of the most majestic Caribbean homes.
