#7. Little Thatch Island – The Caribbean
Sea Grape Cottage is nested happily on the beach of the quaintly named Little Thatch Island, which is part of the Virgin Islands. The cottage is really a villa, which was built in the traditional West-Indian style, featuring a simple but understated and authentic décor with white painted wood, clay tiles and terracotta trim. Rugs, rattan furniture and bamboo are the key themes of the interior soft furnishings. The villa features an impressive outdoor dining area, complete with barbeque, grill and hammock, upon which to gently rock to sleep after post-prandial liqueurs. The 54-acre island has hosted a number of celebrities over the years and surely if the coconut palms lining the beach could talk, they would have some juicy tales to tell.
