“Modern apartment with scenic views”
Reviewed 15 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

We absolutely loved this villa. It was extremely clean and has a nice modern, classy feel along with a beach vibe.

There is a moderate-size master bedroom with it's own master bathroom, along with a decent sized second bedroom with a separate bathroom. Both bathrooms were large. There is also a laundry room with a large washer and dryer (I haven't seen a dryer in any other villa in St Lucia). The living room is large, and there is a dining room table adjacent to the kitchen. However, we ate all of our meals on the table on the porch, where we enjoyed the view over Castries harbor. The kitchen was equipped with dishes, pots and pans, a coffee maker, toaster, and stove/oven.

A few things to note - there are two apartments side by side, Ocean Crest Villa 1 and 2. We stayed in 2, which is situated on the east/southeast side. This is the direction the wind blows in, so you enjoy very strong breezes. This is also the side the sun comes up - there are curtains, but they don't block out all of the light (not an issue for us). The driveway is rather steep and bumpy, but we didn't have any major issues with it. It is located in a residential area, so you will hear roosters in the morning. It is situated about 10 minutes outside of downtown Castries, so you will need to drive to restaurants. La Toc beach is a 7-10 minute walk away - just cross the road, go down the walkway to the Sandals resort, and there it is. The guards never gave us any trouble when we passed by.

Chris and Karen were wonderful hosts, allowing us to check in early and letting us borrow a few of the less common cooking utensils from them (their home is above the apartment). Chris also mentioned that they are planning to put in a pool underneath, so it will likely be available for guests in future seasons to enjoy.

By far the best villa I have stayed at its clean well equipped with everything, have the best views and 5 minutes for the city. What made the stay even better is the friendly host Karen and Chris who made sure we were comfortable and enjoying our stay and give us information about the island.

“Highly recommended!”
Reviewed 11 April 2018 for a stay in April 2018

We had a very nice stay at Karen and Chris. Housing has more than met our expectations. In addition to having a breathtaking view of Castries it is spacious, clean and very well equipped and decorated. Close to the cruise terminal and the airport, the trip is easily done by taxi. Highly recommended!
