“Perfect stay in Soufriere”
Reviewed 24 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Sapphire 4 was a perfect base for our 4 nights in Soufriere. Nestled up the hill a bit, we got a beautiful view of Soufriere, the bay and the Pitons. We never tired of the view, and enjoyed starting and ending our day on the balcony. We were serenaded by roosters and a few dogs in the morning, and it was nice to watch the town 'wake up' each morning.

It was a quick drive to all of our attractions, and we loved walking 'into town' a few times. We felt very safe walking to/from the apartment.

Sapphire 4 was clean and we immediately settled in. Janus has picked good quality products (granite countertops) that will still be in great condition in years to come.

Janus was always a phonecall or message away, and quick to respond. It was great to come 'home' after a busy day, and find a fresh treat on our doorstep. Janus cares about his guests and he was a perfect ambassador for our first rental in St Lucia. We appreciate our experience at Sapphire all the more because our next rental in St Lucia has had many little difficulties that add up to be a big disappointment.

We would love to rent from Janus in the future!

Driving in Soufriere was a bit stressful because of the narrow roads, but everyone makes their way slowly and it all works out! I would perhaps advise people to make sure they can arrive in daylight for the first day, or get a ride from the airport and have the car delivered/rented in Soufriere. We stopped at the Massey grocery store in La Tourney and bought all of our groceries there.

We thought 3 full days and a morning would be enough time in Soufriere, but at least one more day would be a minimum to enjoy the beaches. Day 1 was Tet Paul, Diamond Botanical Gardens and diving the Pinnacles with Chester from Action Adventure Divers. Day 2 was smoothie and iced coffee at Zaka's, lunch at Jade Mountain (okay food, amazing views), and snorkeling at Anse Mamin. Day 3 was climbing Gros Piton and a beach feast at Anse L'lvrogne prearranged with Paul from Zion Lion Farm (incredible, amazing fresh meal!!). We could have spent a whole day just at Anse L'lvrogne (park by The View restaurant and walk down, water taxi would be easiest). Day 4 was a very quick visit to Jalousie Plantation Beach and then checking out and sadly leaving Soufriere for Castries.

tl;dr: Book with Janus, stay at least 5 nights.

Fantastic view and friendly people in this authentic town, Janus was very helpful and the apartment is new, clean and modern. Eat at local place Fedo's for best value.

“JAG visits Sapphire Apt 4, Soufriere, St Lucia!”
Reviewed 16 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

The view is absolutely amazing! Day and Night! Most notable is the responsiveness and hospitality of Janus and his team! Not only was his apartment clean, and his drivers gracious and dependable (Kahill, Ramiah, Steven, Marshall), his assistant Elma was so friendly and responsive to requests and knowledge of the town. Walking the cobblestone hill and streets to town were also fun, getting the feel of being part of the Soufriere community. Everyone is so friendly! Also don't forget to visit Zaka's! Coffee and omelets are amazing and you will enjoy meeting Zaka and his staff!

“Lots of space, fabulous view”
Reviewed 23 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017
person found this review helpful

Our suite, on two levels, is very spacious, has a kitchenette, has a washing machine for clothing, and we found it very clean. Our two night stay was very enjoyable. The owner, Janus, was there to greet us, showed up to say goodbye, and through his reasonably priced car service he took care of all our transportation needs.

Soufriere is not a major tourist destination, but has some wonderful attractions. Primary is a pair of conical mountain peeks, known as the Pitons. The balcony has an outstanding view of them. Just outside town is a pair of attractions, the volcano, which is now a steam vent with a nearby waterfall, and Diamond Gardens, which has a multi-colour waterfall with mineral-stained rocks that gives it a rainbow appearance.

“Truly a piece of heaven”
Reviewed 2 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

This place is just awesome. Host Janus is really friendly and his team of employees looked out for us during our stay. St Lucia is a beautiful island. We had a choice of staying in the city or Soufriere. I'm glad we chose Sapphire apts. it's ideally located with a view to die for. We got much needed peace and quiet that erased the everyday stress we go through in our daily lives. The apt has everything you need with all the amenities as stated online. Many of the island's attractions are close by. We met Janus on our last day on the island and we saw that he's in the process of building a new establishment. This apt is a home away from home. Thank you Janus. We'll be back and you can bet we won't be looking for accommodations anyplace else but with Islander Villas. Anyone planning a vacation in St Lucia and reading my post, please I implore you to call Janus for your accommodations. We love you Janus and team.
