12/29/2012. "Wonderful property, congratulations to the owners for the selection of this homestead with its own cove".
Hawks Cry is located at the northern most tip of the island, where the trade winds are refreshing. The spacious interior has been professionally designed to reflect Caribbean outdoor living. There are beautiful views down into the cove below and across to Martinique. Hawks Cry is an ideal retreat for couples, or perfect for a group of family or friends. The bi-fold balcony doors give open air living to the house.
We have had several honeymooners who all adored Hawks Cry. The first wedding took place here this August 2014, planned by Kayte from Awesome Caribbean Weddings. Cassandra Black, the opera singer, and her husband said, "We can't praise the place enough. It was simply surreal to have our happy moment there. Many thanks, Cassandra & James Baxter"
Birds of prey, including Osprey, have been seen hunting in the area. Humpback Whales and Orcas can be seen from the balcony during their migration. Turtles can be observed laying their eggs on nearby beaches. Tree frogs and sounds of the sea lull you to sleep at night. The gardens are landscaped and planted with palms and tropical flowers, attracting Humming Birds - a perfect place for nature lovers.
Within a short drive is Rodney Bay Marina, which has shopping, banking and dining facilities
A further 10 minutes down the road is Rodney Bay, the island's entertainment capital with shopping malls, a casino, restaurants and a lively night life.

|Further details indoors|
Hawks Cry stands on six and a half acres of land, purchased by the present owners and their partners at the time.
The views over the ocean to Martinique and the nearby hillsides are truly spectacular.
The temperature varies between 28 and 35 degrees throughout the year. As Hawks Cry is in the north of the island, the rainfall is less than the south. The mountains in the centre of the island, attract the clouds, providing moisture to the rain forest. Often you can see rain in the distance, leaving the north sunny.
The gardens are landscaped with palms, tropical flowers and colourful shrubs which attract Humming Birds to feed from the blossoms.
The entrance into the property leads into a light and airy open plan kitchen and dining area. The kitchen is of Italian design with black granite worktops and a breakfast bar. The dining room sits 8 comfortably. The present owners have used natural materials to tastefully decorate all areas including Humming Birds and local fish and flowers on the mosquito nets and beaded tie-backs to the voile curtains. Driftwood, sea fans, bamboo, found on the beaches and in the hills, enhance Hawks Cry. A lovely feature is the sand decorated splash back above the cooker.
Leading from the entrance, is a tastefully furnished living room with cable TV, DVD player and Docking Station..
Air Conditioning and Ceiling Fans are fitted in all living and bedroom areas, except for Sapphire Bedroom, which has air conditioning only.
The living room has 2 bi-fold doors leading to a large balcony with wonderful uninterrupted sea views over Anse Galet Cove and Martinique.
The balcony area has 2 comfortable settees with a glass topped coffee table,making it ideal for snacks, a glass of chilled wine, or cocktails at sunset.

The property has dual voltage (220/110 volt). Hair dryers are provided in all bedrooms. 2 safes are provided for guest valuables.
The Emerald Master Bedroom is spacious, with a high cathedral ceiling. The en suite, with Italian marble, has double sinks, and a lovely walk in shower with seating. A bathtub with shower makes a pleasant alternative.
Downstairs, the Opal and Ruby Bedrooms have king sized beds, en suites, and large walk in closets. Ruby has a lovely balcony, and Opal a Romeo and Juliet window.
The two single beds in the Sapphire bedroom can be converted into a King Size Bed with prior notice.
The playroom is ideal for the younger members of the family. It is cool and safe as there is no outside access. A desk, chairs, books, crayons and puzzle books are provided. Please note. If children use this area, the balcony doors on that floor should be locked for safety reasons.

Cap Estate Town
Cap estate is a highly desirable area to visit, boasting beautiful private properties with stunning gardens. Pigeon Island is a short drive away. It is managed by St. Lucia National Trust and is a World Heritage Site. A visit to explore the historical fort remains, is very worthwhile.

Thank you for your review on Hawks Cry, and for taking the time to write about our wonderful home. We really appreciate your comments about the house and Victoria, our property manager.
We have been asked a number of times about the communal 52 foot infinity swimming pool in the garden. Like you, we found it very rarely used, as a majority of our neighbours, work on the island, and are out all day, Our own plunge pool is beautifully private and is a wonderful spot to relax and enjoy the sun.

"A superb place for a holiday"
“Hawk's Cry”, St Lucia
We have very recently returned from a fortnight at Hawk's Cry, a house in the Cap Estate in the north of St Lucia. We can state without qualification that it was a marvellous experience in every respect.
The development is new, spacious, beautifully appointed and maintained. Its facilities are excellent, with everything to hand for a most comfortable stay, a superb swimming pool on the site and a tranquil atmosphere. We were advised before we arrived of the presence of building work in the immediate vicinity and so were on the look-out for possible disturbance. A combination of very effective double-glazing, the aspect of the house being away from the work and any noise being slight meant we suffered no problems whatsoever.
We enjoyed Caribbean weather, a most hospitable population and care and attention from our hosts to ensure a most satisfying and memorable holiday. We can thoroughly recommend a stay at Hawk's Cry (complete with passing hawk!)

"Heaven on Earth"
I have been twice to "Hawks Cry" and will go again. My favourate beach is on Pidgeon Island, small and beautiful with local bar and resturaunt. Lots of shopping and good resturaunts in nearby Rodney Bay. Try Spinnakers resturaunt - right on the beach - good food and atmosphere. Hire a car and drive around the island and see the Pitons, or just relax around the pool and enjoy the wonderful weather.
