We are family-built and family-run

In 1987 German entrepreneur Thomas Schmitt was stranded on the island with his brother Jochen. Together they decided to stay on the island. He met, married and made a family home with Myrna Marcellin – building the Hermitage Villa and the Hermitage Terrace on the ridge.

Inspired by the lush landscape and scenic views, the houses were designed and built by the family. Rabot Estate and Colombette Ridge are the accumulation of visionary imagination and German architectural planning. Paired with a Caribbean bright interior and hand-picked artwork from local and African artists – they are unique experiences waiting for you!
The quaint beach houses on the Laborie front are our newest addition – renovated lovingly by keeping the traditional layout of a Caribbean cottage with new trims, colours and modern amenities.

The family moved back and forth between Germany and St.Lucia, renting out their family homes to curious travelers. Up to today, we believe in not just offering you a simple accommodation for your travels, but offering you a family home in the tropics – your home away from home.

We hope you enjoy these varied get-aways, be it as a large family vacation, a couple get-away or a private meditative experience in the tropics!


Open Design for amazing views

Inspired by the stunning views our main houses on the Rabot Estate and Colombette Ridge are all open-concept living. We invite nature in and welcome you to experience the natural beauty of our island.


Elevated Cooling

Apart from our beach front location in the quaint village of Laborie, our properties are situated at least 1500 feet above sea level and do not feature air-conditioning. You get some amazing views, and more importantly, cooler temperatures. Be prepared for some refreshing breezes and even chilly evenings. (Don’t worry, we have comfy blankets ready for you!)


Water collections

We collect and filter rainwater for our water- and pool systems. This lets most of our properties run off the grid and helps our island to save resources! Additionally, we heat our bath and shower water through a passive heating system on our roof. Help us stay eco-friendly and conserve with us!


Natural Homes

Our homes are built with natural materials: Hand-carved stonework and long-lived heavy woods. Detailed craftsmanship can be seen in our villas whilst our smaller houses and cottages focus on capturing scenic views in efficient spacial orientation.
We hope you treasure a good wood flooring and island-crafted terra cotta tiles as much as we do!
