Rocina: William and Kate's Mustique Villa in the Caribbean

Saturday, January 24, 2015

Happy Saturday, all y'all! Yesterday, we chatted about the news that Kate, William, and HRH Baby George jetted to the tropical island of Mustique for the annual Middleton vacation. It was rumored that the families were staying in Villa Aurora, a beautiful home in which they have spent past holidays. We now have multiple reputable sources disagreeing on which villa the party is staying. Aurora, covered yesterday, possibly Rocina, where they opted to stay last year, and there is now a third possibility, but that won't be reported on until the dust settles definitively. Let's look over Rocina while we wait: 

Rocina www.mustique-island.com

The Rocina is beachfront and overlooks the Endeavor Bay. A set of steps lead down to the water. Perhaps most importantly for the growing party, Rocina can host 8, in comparison to Aurora's 6. Rocina has four bedrooms: three kings and one double.


Like Aurora, the home has stunning sea views and an open air dining area:


The property has four staff members: a chef, butler, housekeeper, and gardner.


The home also comes with an exercise room, so if Pippa and Kate aren't getting enough exercise walking the beach or splashing in the pool, they can sneak in some Pilates or cardio. It was after a holiday at Rocina in 2009 that thieves stole Pippa Middleton's purse from a car in Kensington. In the purse they discovered a memory card that had pictures from the Mustique holiday at Rocina, with many snaps of William goofing-off and Kate doing yoga.


The home is two-storied, so two of the four bedrooms are on the first floor, but by descending the steps next to the pool, one can access a green terrace below where the second two bedrooms open graciously to the lawn and the view of the sea. Again, this affords double privacy to the families. 


Interestingly, the villa is the closest to the only hotel on the island, The Cotton House, which boasts a sophisticated restaurant and a spa. 



Today is busy for yours truly, but hopefully, tomorrow we can finally settle on which Villa is lucky to be hosting this year. Wherever they are, they will be well looked after and are sure to have a wonderful holiday...hopefully, we will get just a few snaps afterward. :)  Enjoy your day!

  1. Is the nanny coming with them, I wonder?

    1. Honestly, I have been surprised at how much the nanny is with Kate, taking George to swim lessons at BH, nanny comes along, taking George to a playground near her parents' house, nanny is there too, strolling in the park beside KP, nanny is there.... I wonder where her friends are... The nanny IMO is there too much.. Maybe Kate uses her as a friend... One little tot is too much for her when she is doing simple tasks? I think she is not used to doing much, as in having demands put on her, and having George was overwhelming.

    2. I wouldn't know what's a normal amount of time, honestly... I've never been a mom!

    3. Well, she is a nanny / bodyguard. It's not just childcare that the nanny provides, but extra security as well.

    4. There is absolutely no evidence anywhere or even conjecture that the nanny is with them on this trip. My guess is that the nanny is having a much deserved vacation of her own before baby number 2 arrives.

    5. The nanny has traveled with them on other vacations, so it isn't far fetched.... Plus everything that happens isn't always reported...

    6. The nanny is with them as always. They don't know how to be parents without her there after all.

    1. I read a book from a former guard who worked closely with the BRF and when they traveled with them on vacation, the guards stayed very near them. I bet they got a villa beside them. One reason it is so expensive when they vacation.

  4. Don't they celebrate Dad's birthday in such grandeur?

  5. This one makes more sense to me without having to rent 2 villas. It's large enough to sleep the Middletons and Cambridges and is a stone's throw from the hotel, which is likely where the body guards and nanny are staying.

    It's absolutely gorgeous, and I just might have to make Mustique a bucket list trip!

    Dying for some pictures to surface...
