When I booked Serrana Villa, I honestly thought it was too good to be true. After our stay at a resort further north, we were completely blown away when we arrived at Serrana. I can't say enough about what an incredible host Janus proved to be as well. Not only can he set you up with everything you need for your trip like a rental car, but the villa comes equipped with all of amenities of home, including cable and Netflix! Nestled in the mountains of Soufriere in St. Lucia, you have a private pool with a perfect shot of the Pitons, while most everything you need within walking distance. This was our honeymoon, and Janus made this the trip of a lifetime. Our stay at Serrana completely eclipsed our stay at the resort, and made us truly cherish our time in Soufriere. Will certainly be back again. My only regret was that we didn't have more time here. Be sure to check out his other properties as well. Sargas and Sapphire are breathtaking and he has another property under construction right now. Thank you, Janus, you truly made this a trip we will never forget!!!
Janus goes above and beyond expectations to make your stay as pleasant and memorable as possible. He truly wants you to have the best possible experience on the island. Would definitely recommend this amazing place to anyone. Adventure, luxury, romance, experience, charm, beauty, and fantastic hospitality all-in-one. An outstanding deal!
This villa is by far the best place you can stay in Saint Lucia! It is at the top of a hill in Soufriere which means you are close to all of the tourist destinations and fantastic restaurants but yet it is so private and the view of the Pitons is unbelievable. The location makes it so easy to explore everything the island has to offer but the view makes it so hard to leave.
The road to get up to the villa is quite the adventure but totally worth it. This villa is complete with all the modern appliances you need - a coffee maker, blender, microwave, stove, oven, kitchen, freezer, etc. There is also wifi and netflix. The bathroom is huge and the waterfall shower cannot be beat. Janus provides you with plenty of towels and a blow dryer. The AC in the bedrooms is nice and cool, perfect for sleeping at night. The views from inside the master bedroom and the main living area are just as breathtaking as outside on the deck/pool area. Pictures cannot capture the beauty that this villa offers.
The villa itself is not all that you get when you stay at Serrana. Janus is an incredible host. He was not only our first friend on the island, but he was our best friend! He's one of those people that you feel like you have known for forever. He is so welcoming and strives to do whatever he can to make your stay on the island and at this villa perfect. From fresh bread at your doorstep, a cell phone to use for local calls, and just the smile on his face when he sees you driving up the hill to the villa - he is truly the best host you will find!
We haven't even been gone for a week and we already can't wait to come back someday!
We were greeted like royalty by Janus on our arrival after he arranged our hire car company to escort us to the villa so we didn’t get lost - although his instructions were spot on too. He had left eggs, milk and fruit juice as we arrived late afternoon on a Sunday when the supermarket was shut and his driver dropped off fresh bread our first morning. He toured us the villa and made us very welcome.
The villa itself is exactly as it looks on the photos. Clean, every gadget possible and close to plenty of restaurants, beaches and shops. Although with the heat we recommend a hire car. It’s not that far to places or there are plenty of taxis/drivers available, we just preferred travelling at our leisure.
The book of reviews in the villa tells you everything you need to know about where to go but my goodness we enjoyed our stay. Highlights were:
Restaurants - Jade Mountain, Fedos, Hotel Chocolat and Dasheene
Beaches - Anse Mamin, Sugar Beach and Anse Chastanet
Shop - Evolines
We can’t wait to hear about Janus’s other properties so we can return soon!
I spent two years researching Saint Lucia, for things to do on the island and the best place to stay. I checked out Sugar Beach, Hotel Chocolatte, Ladera, and Jade Mountain. They were all lovely but very much out of our price range. Then I found Serrana Villa, and boy did I feel like I hit the jackpot. You could not find a better place to stay if you want luxury and privacy. You Definitely could not go wrong booking any of Janus’s accommodations. If I had to do it over again and money was no object I would still Book Serrana Villa over any of the other resorts I mentioned. If you’re smart enough to book with Janus enjoy your time and congratulations on making a smart decision.
