The expansive five-bedroom villa that the late David Bowie once used as a retreat has hit the rental market for a whopping $40,000 a month.
Dubbed “Mandalay”, the home is located on the exclusive Caribbean island of Mustique, where Kate Moss, Hugh Grant, and Prince William and Kate Middleton have also been known to vacation.
Bowie built the home in 1989, but sold it to publisher Felix Dennis in 1995. The home was sold again after Dennis died in 2014, and some say that the new owner is British businessman Simon Dolan.
The home’s design incorporates many aspects of Japanese and Balinese style, and it’s packed with lush tropical plants and koi ponds. Let’s take a look inside.
Mandalay sits atop a hill overlooking the Caribbean. Views from the master bedroom stretch all the way to St. Vincent and Bequia.
Though the home has had more than one owner since Bowie, you can still see some of the musician's original design touches.
The property also has a writer's cottage and a studio, though Bowie only used it for recording purposes for a short time. 'The house is such a tranquil place that I have absolutely no motivation to write things when I'm there,' he told Architectural Digest in 1992.
