London, Apr 5 (ANI): Amy Winehouse is planning to buy a gorgeous Caribbean hideaway within weeks.
The 23-year-old Back to Black singer is apparently in love with a 3-million pound villa on sunny St Lucia - her new adopted home.
Winehouse, who spent three months on holiday, trying to kick her drug habit, now wants a permanent base there.
Last week, she flew out to St Lucia and told pals she is in the process of buying a luxury seaside retreat.
"Amy has instructed lawyers to draw up contracts with the developers and everything is set for her to buy it. But a few days ago Mitch (her dad) stepped in and said he wasn't sure. He's worried about the possible distractions of drugs and partying on the island," The Mirror quoted a source, as saying.
"But Amy says it's better for her to be out there than in London. She has managed to get off hard drugs in St Lucia and is living a much healthier lifestyle," she added.
The whitewashed villa is part of the exclusive Ocean Residences resort in St Lucia's Sugar Beach.
Set in 162 acres of lush rainforest, the holiday home has spectacular views of white sand beaches from its private balcony and own infinity pool. (ANI)
