The arrival of Eco Serendib got the Inquiring Iguana wondering how expensive can villa rentals be on the island? The answer is very!
Eco Serendib is near the high money mark - today. For $20,000 a week in low season (high season may be 70% more, we hear) you get eight bedrooms, three cisterns, an organic vegetable garden, and all the other stuff: TV sets, infinity pool, air conditioning, master dining room, yada yada yada.
What about other villas?
An informal survey of villa management companies and rental agents has turned up a number of other high priced offerings for your summer getaway.
Until now, A La Mer has been considered the highest-priced spread on the island. our $28,500 on off season gives you the keys to seven bedrooms in the main house and cottage, enough space to sleep 22 people. Features include the usual luxuries plus Sirius/XM radio and three washing machines. The villa's Web site is here.
