Firstly, Stan and Theresa were really great hosts and owners. Warm, friendly and always ready to help or give tips.The villa is nicely located for easy walking distance to both Rodney Bay strip and the Marina area with a good selection of restaurants and bars which is great for the evening.
The villa is so well appointed and fitted out by them both - it is a real credit to them and their hard work.The interior layout is super too with lots of separate areas so you don't feel on top of one another. There really is nothing to fault with it and I would absolutely endorse it to anybody looking for a laid back relaxed stay on St Lucia. I think this villa will book up very quickly in future so don't hang around - it offers the complete package. I don't often give 5 star reviews but this villa deserves it!!!.
This villa is in Rodney Bay Heights with a grand view of Rodney Bay Marina and Pigeon Island and the Caribbean beyond. Reduit, the best beach on St. Lucia, is a five minute drive away (30 minute walk.) Food market and shops are closer, as is a wide variety of fine restaurants.
The villa itself is remarkably beautiful. I can't say enough good things about it. Every where we looked some painting or plant or feature of the building caught our eye. The main room is large with a kitchen, dining and living area. Very bright with lots of windows, especially those looking down on the grand view.
On the same level there are two bedrooms, one with a bed that can be separated into two. One bath serves these two rooms. Walking outside onto covered stairs takes you up to a large bedroom with a wall of windows looking down on the pool and out to the marina and beyond. Beside its bath, it even has a kitchenette. The fairy tale master bedroom is on the next level at the top of the house with a four poster bed, windows on one side and a door on the other opening onto a private balcony. A large bathroom with a tub.
Despite the splendid house we spent most of our time outdoors. Besides the pool in the picture, on the other side of the house is a large popular porch with furniture and just off it a table that will accommodate eight for outside dining. At the very top of the house, opposite the fairy tale bedroom, is an open patio. Oh, and my favorite, is the outside shower up some steps from the pool. Surrounding the house is a garden with lots of trees, even some fruit trees.
The owners, Theresa and Stan, live on the ground level. They are fun to talk to and generous with their time, available for whatever we needed. I don't recall ever having that kind of friendly relationship with anybody from whom I've ever rented. This villa is a real find.
