First, let me state that I was traveling with 6 friends ages ranged from 24-32. For most of us, this was the first time we were out of the US or traveling without family. We also started planning this trip in May of 2017 to be fully prepared. The pictures of the Villa is what initially drew me in. The VIEWS specifically. Fast forward to when we actually arrived to St. Lucia. Nina had set up transportation for us to the house which was about an hour away from the airport. No biggie. Actually a beautiful ride up the west coast. We walked into the house and WOW. I'm pretty sure we immediately dropped our bags and left Nina by the front door and ran outside to the balcony to see the ocean views. BREATHTAKING is the only way to describe the views, the house, the greenery, EVERYTHING. The highlights of every day were waking up to the sunrise in the back of the house, sitting by the pool and staring off into the views and waiting for the most beautiful sunsets. But don't think that the best views are during the day. If you are fortunate enough to have clear skies at night as well, you are in for a treat. I'm a star lover and this was BY FAR my favorite part. The sky is illuminated by stars for miles. We even had the opportunity to be here for the New Moon and WOW. WOW WOW WOW. The cove below is a short 10 minute walk (absolutely beautiful). Marigot bay is literally an 8 minute walk downhill where you can get to restaurants and water activities by a free ferry. There's also a super market down there where you can get food and alcohol. I recommend going to the Street Party if you are here on a Friday Night. Food, music and locals. Best way to end our trip. OH, DO THE PIRATE SHIP EXCURSION. YOU WILL NOT BE LET DOWN. Rum punches and non-alcoholic beverages flowing all day. Music, dancing, Sulphur Springs, jumping off the boat into the ocean. Best 8 hour excursion we could have ever asked for. If you're even questioning to rent this Villa, throw all hesitation away and BOOK IT NOW. We're already planning our next stay here. By far the best Villa and best experience of our lives.
Absolutely perfect location for a group of people to hang out.
We held our wedding reception here and could not have asked for a more beautiful place.
The pool! The space! The sunsets!
We had a wonderful time doing nothing at this house.
The view is amazing and the house had everything we could have asked for. The beach access isn't really for swimming. We had two families with kids ages 14-13-11-9-5-3. They loved the pool and the bedroom accommodations worked great. It's is tough to find at night as the street aren't marked well. Grocery store in town worked. The Marino Bay grocery store is very highly priced. The bay has fun restaurants with good food but it's expensive and stay away from Doolittle's. Terrible service and the food is mediocre at best. Read the reviews and enjoy the laughs for Doolittles. Rented a sailboat from the bar tender at the Hurricane Hole. Wonderful day on the water. Fun happy hour there...must do! Thank you for sharing your wonderful place!
We went to St. Lucia to visit family and friends as well as celebrate my dads 50th birthday. I loved the home but I would not recommend bringing kids. Everything about the home is beautiful hands down! However the pool area is extremely slippery. My son slipped and fell around the pool area on our last day and we ended up with a $800usd hospital bill for 7 stitches. The first aid supplies were all expired as well. The other issue is there are no railings walking down to the garden again could be dangerous for a child. Now the positives, there is a small beach area down the beaten path. The beach has a very strong current so I would not recommend swimming but I loved lounging, and exploring. We found a trail that leads to the house and was super fun to do. The homes has not only a great view but is very peaceful at night. You can here the waves and island music coming from some of the bars down the hills. Everything you would expect from an island.
My husband and I were so taken aback when we arrived at the villa. The view little takes your breath away over and over again.
Communication was great and everything as promised with Nina (the property manager) and Howard (the owner).
The house is great for families or couples.
Suggest to rent a car though as it is very secluded and is a bit of a walk to Marigot Bay down a windy, hilly road.
The spiral staircase through the center of the house is stunning, as is the metal one outside. The pool is perfect and there is even your own private rainforest garden to stroll through.
This is a great place to unplug and check out from the hustle and bustle of daily life, if you are looking for nightlife, not going to find it here.
If you are with a group, the villa is perfect to gather at night.
We will be back!
