The lavish estate in Mustique in the Caribbean where Princess Margaret had wild cocktail parties is currently available to rent for $33,000, or roughly £26,000 in British Sterling for royal fans.
This is for a weekly stay in the five-bedroom property beloved by the late Countess of Snowdon.
The island of Mustique, which is a part of St Vincent and the Grenadines, hosts a 10-acre estate known as Les Jolies Eaux, or Beautiful Waters.
As her marriage to the late Lord Snowdon began to end, it became the Princess’s haven from the outside world and the only place where she could “truly relax” according to reports.
This is where Queen Elizabeth’s sister formed a relationship with a landscape gardener named Roddy Llewellyn who was 17 years her junior, among the white sand beaches and pure waters of Mustique.
It is not cheap to stay in her former home, but it does have five en-suite bedrooms, two swimming pools (one 40 feet long and the other 16 feet long), panoramic views of the Atlantic, and five servants, including a chef, butler, maid, housekeeper, and gardener.
Judi Duncan, a private chef with classical training who has worked at the residence for decades, is said to create delectable meals using the best produce flown onto the island or freshly caught nearby.
The island of Mustique, which is only three miles long and one mile wide, has seven pristine beaches and an obsession with privacy, making it a haven for Princess Margaret as well as for celebrities like Mick Jagger, Shania Twain, Tommy Hilfiger, and David Bowie.
In addition, Kate Middleton’s family is said to currently visit the island once a year.

The island is quite unsophisticated despite its regal past and the wealthy visitors.
Locals use miniature golf carts known as “Mules” to get around the island, and they are required to stop if one of the red-footed tortoises that are native to the area crosses in front of them.
There are no ATMs, golf courses, street lights, or traffic lights, and most locals tend to walk around with bare feet.
Princess Margaret’s former villa states on their website: “This legendary villa was designed by Oliver Messel for HRH The Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon.
“Les Jolies Eaux sits on the southernmost tip of Mustique, so the privacy that it affords its guests is absolute.
“With the classic Messel design, guests enter through a courtyard and into the living space with a view of the pool and the sea beyond as the cliff drops away to the water.
“The extensive gardens lead down to the hidden Gelliceaux beach, only discoverable by those ‘in the know’, and after which the house was named.
“The dining pavilion, beside the pool, is open on all four sides to benefit from the gentle breeze as you enjoy the delicious food and the special view over the bay and Lagoon beyond in equal measure.”
