Winehouse Keen To Buy Holiday Home In St. Lucia

AMY WINEHOUSE wants to have a more permanent base in the Caribbean - she's reportedly looking to buy a holiday home on the island of St. Lucia.
The Rehab singer has been enjoying an extended break in the vacation hotspot since December (08), when she escaped her Camden, north London home for a sunnier climate.
Winehouse has faced numerous health issues over the last 12 months - including a battle with drug addiction - but has managed to stay away from hard drugs while on holiday.
And the star is doing so well away from the temptations of the British capital, she's started house-hunting in St. Lucia so she can return at her leisure.
A source tells Britain's The Sun newspaper that Winehouse and her father Mitch viewed "a few potential places" last weekend (14-15Feb09).
The insider adds, "Amy loves it over there and being away from it all has helped her hugely in her fight against drugs.
"She has been drinking and smoking cannabis but is still a million times better than she was in Camden.
"Her family think the best way to keep her out of trouble is to have a house in the (English) suburbs and a place in the Caribbean where she can totally get away."
