A true representation of its name, The Fortress stands proudly amongst the lush green foliage in the heart of Cap-Estate. This pair of adjoining but separate luxury villas, represents a unique vacation for any person or family looking for a peaceful, tranquil, relaxing, rejuvenating yet modern vacationing abode.
The Fortress boasts one of the most unique views of St. Lucia. From the balcony one can enjoy a fresh cup of coffee along with the fabulous sunrise over the Atlantic and on an evening from the same spot, take in the stupendous sunset in the west.
For a spectacular view even closer to home, one can gaze at the glistening waters of the private pool surrounded by exotic, wide-branched palm trees. Other local vegetation is grown in the garden surrounding the apartments such as mango, cherry, ripe banana, tomato, guava, and lime trees. Exquisite flowers can also be found in the garden such as roses, pink, white, purple and orange bougainvillea, and hibiscus to name a few.
The larger villa consists of two bedrooms and two bathrooms(including one Jacuzzi). This villa also has a spacious, partly circular, well ventilated and lit kitchen facing the Atlantic Ocean on the East. Both entrances/exits lead to a ‘crescent moon’ balcony facing the Caribbean Sea on the West.
The family room and dining room are served by an interior wooden bar.
Both bedrooms are air conditioned and include cable television and FM/Alarm clock radio whilst the bigger of the two bedrooms has a convenient work desk.
The balcony is a unique semi circular, common structure of the villas and is separated by an intricately designed PVC arrangement adorned with natural plants; this see-thru separation allows viewing of both the Atlantic and Caribbean Sea.
The smaller villa has a similar design but facing west to towards the Caribbean Sea. Its family room is separated from the dining area by beautiful wooden banisters, with both the family room and single bedroom being air conditioned for further comfort. This villa is adjacent to the common outside private pool.
The pool is uniquely situated for viewing both oceans to the west and east, and has a terrace extension for sun bathing or just enjoying the surrounding foliage and Fortress plants and fruit trees.
Both villas are tiled and are furnished with beautiful, straw woven furniture, modern varnished cupboards, and simple yet fully secured PVC rectangular windows. Both villas have laundry rooms and everything else necessary for a comfortable vacation.

Home away from Home
Home away from Home
After a long exhausting summer writing my new novel World Cup Soccer in the Middle East; my wife and I needed some rest and relaxation. This was the perfect home-away-from home to rejuvenate. The Fortress is strategically located to the tip of Saint Lucia overlooking the Caribbean Sea and Atlantic Ocean. Fully secure with annuities available for your comfort ***** Most importantly the owners are reliable, friendly, and established business owners. Highly recommended for your peace of mind and relaxation to enjoy Sweet Saint Lucia ++++++ Globally; Stephen E. Sealy Author

Spectacular, Breathtaking Vacation Getaway !!!
Spectacular, Breathtaking Vacation Getaway !!!
WOW.......... Our stay here was indeed everything I hoped it would be and more. My wife and I vacationed in St. Lucia for a little over two weeks and I must say, choosing The Fortress Suites was definitely one of the best ideas for this vacation we could have made. For us, a major part of our trip was to have a place to stay that was relaxing, comfortable, convenient, and not far from the sights and activities we were interested in. The Fortress suites accomplished this for us. The location is great, not far from dining, beaches, sightseeing, golf and shopping. Coffee on the balcony while watching the sunrise and breathtaking view is an exceptional attribute that we will never forget. The hospitality was also excellent. As advertised, we were picked up from the airport and taken to The Fortress Suites. Keith and Diane made sure that our stay was beyond our expectations, and our ability to move around with the provided vehicle was a definite plus. Finding our spots of interest was a breeze, and everything needed was available and provided. We really loved our stay. When visiting St. Lucia, whether for vacation, business or other, I would highly recommend the Fortress Suites in Cap Estate. To Keith and Diane, thank you. This was one of the best vacation experiences we have had, and it would not have been possible without your hospitality and our stay at your wonderful property.

Owner response: Diane, the Management team and I have made information available 24 hours a day, on our 32" HDTV and mini desktop computer in both villas. Our clients can choose from the many activities close to and far from the property. A natural choice is golf, as the property overlooks the biggest golf course on the island. Daily sunrise and sunsets are also natural, as the property is flanked by the Atlantic Ocean on the East and the Caribbean Ocean on the West. Diane and I welcome all to create their own excitement ,or just to relax and rejuvenate.
A heavenly piece of paradise
A heavenly piece of paradise
The first view of the accommodation was breath taking and everything went up hill from there. The bedrooms were spacious and exquisitly decorated. The living area was more than adequate with charming fixtures and fittings. The kitchen area was vast, with all the modern appliances. The views from our balcony were INCREDIBLE ! Cap Estate, where the accommodation is located, is very peaceful. On a number of occasions we took a walk out at dusk to watch the sun set and always felt safe. For getting about, the use of the provided vehile was invaluable, allowing us to explore the whole of the island without inconvenience. Keith and Diane were very welcoming hosts with initial tips and advice about the area and island. After that they left us to enjoy our holiday and we only saw them if we contacted them. A truly amazing location with fabulous people. We cant wait to go back again.

Owner response: Our clients enjoy our specials that come with bookings of 5 days or longer. The U-Drive vehicle provided is totally free of cost to client for the entire length of their stay. Airport pickup and return of our clients is also free of cost, and the welcome beverage is a surprize. Diane and I make it our business to help clients relax and enjoy their vacation in our tranquil and natural setting, without leaving out the many adventures they can choose from, to individualise their stay. Welcome to our private piece of heaven.
My wife and I stayed for four nights at The Fortress. It was so wonderful we never wanted to leave the property. Keith and Diane attended to our every need and their suggestions for restaurants were extremely helpful. The views are just spectacular from the veranda. We look forward to returning to this little piece of heaven.
