The newly built Villa My Way (MWY) in fact lets its privileged occupants have it both ways. The first thing that catches your eye after you ascend the steps—which themselves are designed to represent a piano—is a gleaming black-lacquered grand piano, given pride of place in the living room under a curvaceous midcentury-modern lamp. Photos of Frank Sinatra hang on the walls, and a quote from “My Way” decorates the backsplash behind the stove in the open kitchen.
A sense of retro glamour permeates this luxury villa in Colombier, one of the finest new rental properties in St. Barth. But guests’ way of making themselves at home here doesn’t have to involve only unplugged pleasures like tickling the ivories, settling into the sleek Corbusier chairs for intimate conversations, or soaking up the beautiful views of the sea and the islands of Bon Homme and Fregate. Villa My Way (MWY) is also tricked out with marvelous technology. The furniture on the terraces becomes softly illuminated by night, the kitchen is well equipped with gadgetry and walk-in cold room, and the living room is transformed into an entertainment center when a large screen drops down from the ceiling and a projector is turned on.
There is no compromising in Villa My Way. Guests have sublime privacy, thanks to the private entrances into each of the five equal-size bedrooms, and myriad ways to amuse themselves, whether reveling in Rat Pack nostalgia, losing themselves in sea and sky views, or watching a movie indoors. This makes MWY an excellent choice for extended families with adult children, groups of friends traveling together and even corporate retreats. And as for enhancing the experiences, Sinatra’s lyric “I did what I had to do and saw it through without exemption/I planned each charted course, each careful step along the byway/And more, much more than this, I did it my [guests’] way” could easily describe the PIV concierge, who can arrange everything from private wine tastings to island adventures.
The overall look is sleek and modern, with cool slate gray floors, horizontal lines, low-slung furnishings, walls made entirely of glass, and carefully deployed pops of color amid the soothing seas of white: an orange wall in one of the bedrooms, or a canary yellow table paired with black and white Philippe Starck chairs. Space is abundant, both in the expansive indoor and outdoor living areas and in the five bedrooms (three upstairs and two downstairs) with private bathrooms. Downstairs there’s also a fitness room with top-line equipment and floor-to-ceiling mirrors to reflect the ocean view. There’s also a large, covered parking area.
