My wife and I highly recommend the South Sea House. It can be a little difficult finding the place but once you get your bearings, its perfectly located almost everything you need in St Lucia. We hopped in the rental car and saw a new part of the island everyday. Its also close to a lot fine and casual dinning options as well.
Jerome and Karen are great hosts and the apartment is perfect for 2 people looking to get away from it all. Very relaxing and a great breeze constant throughout the morning and evening. We went grocery shopping and made breakfast every morning and sat out on the balcony and took in the wonders that is St Lucia. We also had a handful of adult beverages on that same balcony at night.
The apartment had everything we needed as well. Wifi was decent and cable tv was on in the background. It also had everything we needed to cook if need be. The bed was a little firm, shower took a couple minutes to warm up but how picky can you be.
Jerome and his co-captain Glen also took us out for a day on his boat for a private tour while there for a small fee.
It was definitely the most bang for the buck and we encourage both long and short term renters to consider the South Sea House.
South Sea House in the Cap Estate was an excellent choice for our two week tour of Saint Lucia. We were only a five minute drive to Rodney Bay with its shops, mall, marina, restaurants and cafes and 30 minutes from the capital Castries.
We occupied a double bed self contained apartment but larger ones were available. Ours was very well equipped with full kitchen facilities. Most of our meals were had on the veranda which overlooked the golf course. Views to the east showed some spectacular sunrises. There is a complimentary phone preprogrammed with the hosts numbers and some of the local taxis. Our hosts were very approachable and very informative. We were made to feel like part of their family.
We’ll be back.
We stayed once again with Karen and Jerome but this year in apartment 2. This is as well appointed as the others and has every kitchen appliance that you could need. The washing machine is a bonus for keeping beachwear clean! The once a week maid service was also much appreciated. The plunge pool provided the opportunity for a refreshing dip and the view is amazing. We used the family pool frequently - the sun loungers are a great addition and it is a lovely are in which to relax. The drive to Rodney Bay is about 5 minutes where there are numerous bars, restaurants and the supermarket. Karen and Jerome are amazing hosts - on site if you need any advice and the local mobile phone that they provide gives you extra reassurance when out and about. The small touched that they provide (from Pitons in the fridge on arrival to fresh flowers) make you feel really welcome. I cannot recommend this rental highly enough - you would be hard pushed to find anything equivalent for this price. Cant's wait for next year!

My companion and i were blessed to book this place last minute on my second visit to St. Lucia. It away from all the hustle and bustle of Rodney Bay and it was perfect. From the dazzling sun rise over cotton bay and the golf course in the morning to the dozens of crickets that can be heard at nights. The apartment was clean and very welcoming just as seen in the pictures. There is no air need for air condition unit as the main living area was well ventilated and as the house is perched on a hill. There is however one unit in the bed room. The plunge pool even though very inviting was unable to be used by my companion and I as the water was very cold both day and night. The owners Karen and Jerome thank you. We did have a good time and would definitly be back. They were only a foot step or phone call away, they were also very resourceful and assissted us as needed. I would like to add a few suggetions to further enhance your guest stay. Firstly warm water for the plunge pool. Televison in the bed room. A full lenght mirror and lastly a tea station with coffee , creamer, tea bags for guess as they arrive. Dispite these missing amenites. Pertect location for a quite vaction.
We stayed at Karen and Jerome's other property a couple of years ago, so this was a natural choice when returning to St Lucia.
Apartment as described, clean and well maintained. Well equipped. Good customer service provided. Location is quiet with views out to Cas en Bas Bay. Spectacular sunrises (jet lag woke us early) can be photographed from apartment balcony.
Recommend following restaurants - La Terrase, Froggie Jacques, Spice of India, Blue Olive all in Rodney Bay. Pink Plantation House at Castries. Key Largo for good pizza in Rodney Bay.
Beach between Pigeon Island and Sandals busier than last time we visited but umbrellas and sun loungers available to rent. Good location for sunsets.
Eastern beaches on the island all affected by seaweed (more than last time we were here) but that may be transitory.
