With an upcoming jazz and art festival headlined by Sting and Shaggy, as well as the wildly entertaining Kabawé Krawl running throughout the year, Saint Lucia is very much a top contender for the place to be in 2023. In fact, there is so much happening on the island this year—the weekly Gros Islet street parties, Anse La Raye fish fry every Friday, summer carnival, Jounen Kweyol cultural festival in October, to name a few—the dream scenario would be scoring the Saint Lucia Live It Visa and spending the entire year basking in this spectacular island’s creativity.
But where can a traveler ready to drop everything for 12 months feel at home? Soon enough, that answer will be Cabot Saint Lucia. Since breaking ground in 2019, this resort community’s real estate offerings have had travelers all over the world daydreaming about owning an escape on stunning Point Hardy. And when shots of Coore and Crenshaw’s first Caribbean golf course started making their way onto social media, well, we imagine searches for Ship Sticks prices were through the roof.
The 42 homes offered in phase one have all sold, but the second wave offers 56 homes, including turnkey villas that start at $3.5 million and lots that cost anywhere between $1.6-9.75 million, with Hart Howerton handling designs. A jaw-dropping price range, certainly, but the bells and whistles will have homeowners questioning why they’d ever leave.
Anyone who has visited Cabot Cape Breton knows this is an experience rich with spoils, and this Caribbean endeavor will be no different. The 375-acre property will eventually boast as many as 300 homes, ranging from single-family residences to intimate beachfront retreats.
All the while, residents and visitors will elevate the experience by spending time at the beach club, lounging by the pools, and relaxing in the world-class spa. Kids will even have their own adventures to enjoy, while the sports center will complement the golf experience with other health- and wellness-focused activities.
Point Hardy Golf Club is obviously the crown jewel of this property, as its legendary designers let Mother Nature and the island’s phenomenal beauty influence their conceptual rhythm in the layout. Preview Play began in March 2023, allowing incredibly lucky Cabot Saint Lucia members—and prospective members—to play select parts of the course, but the opening date is still December 2023. Talk about a holiday gift.
