Property description

A simple and unique 3 bedroom holiday home in a stunningly gorgeous ecological location overlooking the city, which is only 5 mins away by transport. Big, beautiful, and set amongst flowering plants and tropical fruit trees in one acre of lush hillside (a hot spot for bird watching!), you’re unlikely to find a villa with more spectacular views. Not situated in a tourist resort, there's no pool, but our holiday home has loads more to offer. The largest and best value-for-money villa on the island sleeps six in comfort but is just as cozy for two. Get a taste of real St Lucian community life here. In several homes nearby live extended family of the villa’s owner, so there is no shortage of thoughtful attention! Julie, the villa's manager comes from a long line of superb cooks, and her husband Hidden's wicked West Indian rum punch will have you panting for more! They will delight you with delicious creole dishes and fabulous cocktails on the veranda as the sun goes down over the Caribbean Sea. Sheer magic!
Situated on a hill, the villa attracts every cross current of cool air so there is no need for air conditioning, but each bedroom is equipped with an electric fan. The spacious master bedroom (17ft x 14ft) has a king-size bed, plus a sturdy folded single bed for a third person. There are two further double bedrooms (12ft x 12ft), one with a double bed, and the other with two single beds. There are two bathrooms, one en-suite to the master bedroom and one between the double bedrooms (showers only). There is also a wooden enclosed shower in the garden. The huge living-room (25ft x 25ft) has a breakfast bar, and is furnished with two four-seater settees, two matching armchairs and other comfortable seating, and there are pretty patterned straw mats on the stained wooden floor.

There is satellite/cable television, stereo system with radio, a telephone, and internet connection. The living-room opens out onto a magnificent veranda (15ft x 44ft) with breathtaking views all around. The veranda has a solid round pine table which seats up to 12 guests, also a Mexican hammock, two teak loungers, and a rocking chair for further relaxation and comfort. The kitchen comes equipped with a large American refrigerator, microwave, oven, and all you'll need for self catering. (But if you want our splendid chef Julie to prepare your meals, all you do is ask her!). There is a spacious utility room with a washing machine, electric iron, and other useful amenities. Bedclothes are changed once a week, and towels when you want them. The villa is thoroughly cleaned before you arrive, and mid stay if you require it.

There is no pool. All the neighbours have gardens where they grow fruit and vegetables, some keep a few chickens, a sheep, or a goat or two. Eco-tourism here is at its friendliest - you can choose the best of both worlds - sand and sea, and also a glimpse into the culture of St Lucia's most charming people.

Car: Not Necessary

Not just a sea view - our spectacular, panoramic views will knock your socks off! We overlook the city and surrounding hills, harbour mouth, beach, small airport, the Vigie peninsula, several bays and inlets forged by the Caribbean sea, and there's the island of Martinique whilst doing the washing up! Situated in the heart of a semi-rural neighbourhood, members of the community are mostly related and have a sense of responsibility to each other. This caring hospitality is extended to Frangipani guests but there is no intrusion on privacy. Far from the madding crowd but within easy reach of restaurants, clubs and shopping, the villa is just 1 mile to the centre of town, also 1 mile to the local beach - a 20-30 minute walk if you're reasonably fit, or a very short transport journey through the most picturesque landscapes of eastern Castries. Not absolutely necessary to hire a car, little 12-seater public transport buses are loads of fun and the bus stop is just yards from the villa.

Other Activities: helicopter sight-seeing

Golf: St. Lucia Golf & Country Club is about 5 miles from the villa Frangipani. It is open all the year round and features the only 18-hole golf course on the island. Located on Cap Estate, this course is set in green rolling hills with a stunning panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean and the sapphire waters of the Caribbean sea.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1996

About: Cheers! That's me Dylyn, in the picture. I manage the villa which is co-owned by me and other members of my family. Some extended family members who live in St Lucia look after the villa and our guests. My husband (a retired lawyer) and I (retired PA) reside in London, United Kingdom. I love travel, adore entertaining, and strive to be content and happy for myself and for my loved ones.

Why Choc Bay:
Because the town of Castries was where I was brought up and the villa overlooks this exciting city. Also, the villa is unique! It's the only holiday home I know of on the island, situated in a real St Lucian community where most of the residents happen to be old friends and tight-knit extended relatives. The beautiful Villa Frangipani stands amongst the homes of my lovely kinsfolk, always willing and happy to help each other and our guests. So here on holiday you not only have sun, sea and sand, but you get that extra buzz - a fascinating glimpse into the culture of St Lucia's wonderful people!

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Staying at this gorgeous, wheel-chair friendly villa with probably the most stunning views on the island means that you can bring your family and friends to the best value-for-money holiday home in the entire Caribbean and you won't break the bank! And for wheel-chair users there is a ramp to the entrance, wide doors and corridors, grab-bars and easy to use showers. The villa is central to most places on the island from which you can easily travel to all other destinations either by public transport or by your own hired vehicle. Many guests say that our fantastic panoramic views could have them spending their entire vacation (armed with a cocktail or three) on our spacious veranda. And for me, my husband and family, we all adore our villa Frangipani and think it is the most beautiful place in the world.
