MUSTIQUE HOUSES VOL. I

Ocean Breeze

Photography & Text by Mike Toy

Ocean Breeze was first named Honeymoon House and was built for a German couple who were married and honeymooned on Mustique. The honeymoon provded to be short-lived and the couple went their separate ways leaving the house to be finished without the benefit of their input or direction. It was designed and built by Arne Hasselqvist with interiors by Peter Marino and Jennifer Bradford Davis.

It occupies the second-highest lot on the island with spectacular views in all directions. One a clear day you can see both St. Lucia to the north and Grenada to the south. The main entrance is via a formal walkway

through tall hedges of sweet lime and willy willy, past an ornamental fishpond and up a flight of stone steps to an octagonal entrance hall.

The house is divided into three separate pavilions, the largest of which is arranged around a courtyard garden and comprises the living room, dining room and master bedroom. A short flight of stone steps leads down to the pool deck with an infinity-edge pool and gazebo.

Two guest pavilions are located a short distance away from the main house connected to it by stone pathways. Each contains two separate bedroom suites bordered on each side by full-length covered verandahs.
