From the moment you land on St Lucia and Kedrick is there to greet you to the dawn of the first morning where the blue sky welcomes you to breakfast by the pool this is exactly what the independent traveler to the Caribbean is looking for. The villas are thoughtfully laid out with everything you need, the location over looking Rodney Bay is idyllic. A short walk to supermarkets, wonderful restaurants and a beautiful beach make it a perfect spot to discover St Lucia from. Gayle and Hector provide exactly what you need for a perfect vacation - nothing is too much trouble and if you are looking to escape the rat race and go at your own pace then, you have found your paradise. We cannot be back soon enough...
Very clean and well maintained suite near all the attractions of RodneyBay but still quiet and private. The pool area is exceptional and the hospitality of Hector and Gayle is first class. it is a short walk to all the action but the action stays there when you return to the quiet villa at night. Would stay again and recommend it.
Hector and Gale were awesome!! I rented both suites and they were as advertised. I felt safe on the property. The view from the balcony was nice. There were a few wrinkles but they were sorted out in a reasonable timeframe. Gale invited us to her private birthday party and was kind as to drop us off at an event. I would stay here again whenever I didn't want to go to the resort.
We were very pleased to find upon our arrival that we had been upgraded to a new 3 bedroom 2.5 bathroom villa. It was a spectacular place with with a most wonderful view of the marina at Rodney Bay. It came as advertised with a private pool and nice deck with lounge chairs. The kitchen had every thing you would need for a long stay including a gas stove,large refridgerator ,microwave and dishwasher. There was also a bbq area out back.The beds were comfy with nice linens and the bathrooms spectacular. The unit had AC but also had nice large opening windows to allow a breeze in. The unit was spotless and a cleaning person came in once per week. There were 2 balconies, one off the livingroom and one off the master bedroom.
Hector met us on arrival and checked in during our stay . The unit was within easy walking distance to both the marina and Rodney Bay Mall, both of which have a mirriade of restaurants. I will put a plug in for La Terrasse Restaurant which was excellent and for Delirious which was surprising good. I would also recommend Kendrick's Taxi service- he picked us up from the airport, took us on a private tour of the island and brought us back to the airport.
For those who have not been to St Lucia, it is hilly. The unit required us to go up a hill and climb 50 stairs to get to the front door. We did not rent a car and walked every where so it is possible but taxing. After touring the island, the Rodney Bay/Gros Islet area is the only place we would stay. Its close to beaches, restaurants, and shopping-including groceries.
Finally the people at SPLAPS(St Lucia Animal Protection Society) do a great job with dogs and cats on the island. Consider a donation or bringing some Nexguard or similar meds for them.

This place was great and was very reasonably priced. Hector and Gale were very nice and set up a pick up for us at the airport so we didn't have to fumble our way around the island trying to find their house. They had a jeep available for rent anytime we needed which was very convenient and also provided a phone for us to use. The only reason I give 4 stars is because there were some things that would have been nice to have, like paper towels, extra toilet paper, some cleaner, an extra soap, etc. Some daily essentials had to be bought. Obviously we needed to buy food and drinks, but I feel like maybe we shouldn't have had to stock certain things. I've rented many condos and houses and these things are normally available or stocked. Was a great place though and conveniently located to everything. It was a short walk and even shorter drive to all the action.
