Marigot Bay villa description

Situated on the exclusive north side of Marigot Bay. The Pelican House offers you an unsurpassed Caribbean vacation. From the spacious, 70-foot veranda you can experience spectacular views of both the bay and the ocean.

Watch the sailboats and yachts enter and exit the bay, and then experience the breathtaking sunsets all from the comfort of the veranda. If boat watching is not your thing, then perhaps the show put on by the hummingbirds constantly flying around the lush gardens will excite you. If relaxation is what you crave, just lie back in the hammock and watch the world go by. If more active pursuits are your pleasure the beach is a two-minute walk down the hill and diving, sailing and other watersports are practically at your doorstep. And ,best of all, after a full day there is no need to climb back up to the house as we have a motorized Tram that will transport you almost to our door.

For your dining pleasure, there are many fine restaurants within a ten-minute walk from the house, or you have a well-appointed kitchen in which you can cook up your own masterpieces.

Marigot Bay is centrally located midway along the islands west coast. You are about 15 minutes from Castries the capital city, 40 minutes from Rodney Bay with its resorts and activity, and about one hour from the beautiful scenery of the Pitons and the old French capital of Soufrierre. No matter what your desire is, from dancing the night away, to hiking the Pitons - Marigot Bay offers you convenient access to it all.

The house is comfortably furnished with all locally made furniture for the true Caribbean feel. The veranda has a large dining table, which seats eight, and there are comfortable chairs for up to ten people. Each bedroom is complete with comfortable beds, linens, and private bath with shower. There is one king-size bedroom and two rooms with two singles each, this makes it the ideal house for families traveling together. This is also one of the few house's at Marigot which is not shared either with other guests or a caretaker/owner. When you choose to stay at Pelican House it is you and only you who will be there.

                    The open air living area was the best place for R&R that I have ever seen! The overlook of Marigot Bay ad the sunsets every night was incredible. To top it off, the locals on St. Lucia were extremely friendly and helpful everywhere we went!

                    My family of 5 stayed here for the week of Christmas and had a great stay. I have 3 daughters 17, 20, 21 we loved the view of the bay and sunning on the deck. The house is very open and we felt like we were outside enjoying the island the entire trip. We have done a few week long sailing trips in the Caribbean and this had a similar feel. We charted a sail boat for 2 different days from Chateau Mygo and had a great snorkeling trip to the south and then another great sail to the north. We had Julietta cook for us one night and I would definitely recommend this to everyone. We had some crazy weather on Christmas eve - it rained all day and we got about 15" of rain - totally a freak storm that never happens during the winter months. It flooded out some of the bridges and roads, so we were unable to do the hiking and touring we planned for the south of the island. The snorkeling was also out after all of the rain. The weather was great the next day so we just rented some kayaks and sail boats in the bay and had fun right in our backyard. We did the Jump Up on Friday night and it was quite the party. Smally took us up and hung out while we ate and drank. I was glad I didn't rent a car, Smally was great to work with. The drive back to the airport had a few detours on some skinny roads and there were some places that we barely fit with 2 cars. The Pelican house was a great fit for our active family. Not a big overcrowded resort, but pleasant accommodations, with nice restaurants around, your own kitchen, and a beautiful backyard.

                    My family enjoyed a relaxing week in St Lucia at the Pelican House. Everything was as described or better. My 2 year old daughter was comfortable in the crib that was left for her. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to cook meals at home and the area had plenty of restaurants to choose from. Johnson and Julietta were a pleasure to get to know. The local people were wonderful. It took us a night to get used to the amount of noise all the birds, bugs, and frogs made at night but once we did it became a comforting sound. The outdoor living are was so enjoyable on a raining evening or early morning with a cup of coffee. Our 2 year old LOVED the birds and we have great videos and pictures of them flying right up to her to eat the crumbs left behind. We will definitely be back, thank you so much for the wonderful stay! John, Danielle, and Penny Finley

                    I so enjoyed our stay at Pelican House. I am scheming to see how I can spend an entire week next year... My sister, two cousins and I stayed here in May for five nights and it was perfect as a getaway. I love that it's on the side of the Bay where there are no roads. You take the ferry to the many restaurants on the bay or to the marina to catch a cab or rent a car to get wherever else you want to go on St. Lucia. Pelican House is like a beach house only it's perched on the side of the mountain with views of the mountains, Marigot Bay and the Caribbean. In the morning, you can watch the sun rise over the mountains and watch it set over the Caribbean. The house is colorful and full of personality and decorated with local art. There are lots of books just waiting to be read plus some games as well. The house is steps away from the tram stop. When you walk in, you're in the covered open air living/dining area complete with hammock which flows into the screened porch and out to the open sun deck. The bedrooms and kitchen at on the right and all open out into the open areas. The house was immaculately clean when we arrived and fresh flowers awaited us. The bedrooms are all screened so that you can prop open the shutters and let the cross breeze through. The kitchen is extremely well equipped. The shutters open up in the galley style kitchen so you can converse with those out in the living area. The important thing to know is to not leave food unattended on the counter or the little birds will pay you a visit and try to feast! Our goal was to relax. We would start out the day on the outside deck by watching the sun come up over the mountains and would stay out there to get some sun. When it got too hot, we would move to the living area where ceiling fans kept us cool... in the evening when the bugs came out, we would migrate to the screen porch... For exercise, we took the steps up and down the hill rather than ride the tram. The communications from the owners was exceptional about who would meet us and there was the magic notebook that had all contact information, places to go and eat. It was a treasure trove of information. Wireless connectivity was good and picked up free from the marina. Lots to do in the area if you want to book Smally for the day or rent a car or a boat tour with Captain Alex. Pelican House felt like home!

                    Owner response: Thank you for the kind words, if you felt at home then we have been sucessful. We hope that you come again

                    Lucky me...Last year my daughter and I spent a glorious week at this enchanting house and this year I was able to talk my husband into taking some time off to join me. Pelican House at Marigot Bay is heaven on earth. The house is exactly as described and well kept with 3 comfortable bedrooms and a full kitchen. The views from the veranda (open air living room) and the deck are breath-taking. We went to bed with the crickets singing (or the band from Chateau Margo playing); arising early to slip out onto the deck to watch the sun come up over the mountain. Most mornings I just lounged on the deck and read until the rest of the crew got up. Later we swam or snorkeled in the bay, lazed on the sand or caught the ferry to the main side of the bay to cop a spot at the local bar and watch the yachts come in. We did allow ourselves the treat of a sailing day. Oasis Resort, right up the hill from Pelican, has a killer deal on a day long sailing trip. With another couple we met at the airport, we rented a 44 foot sail boat and spent the entire day sailing around the island, docking at Soufriere for lunch, and snorkeling in a secluded bay. What a life... We spent our week relaxing, mesmerized by the beauty that was laid out before us. My husband received the much needed down time and was totally unstressed by the time we had to leave. Don't miss the opportunity to be a part of this delightful place . And there is no better place to experience it than from Pelican House at Marigot Bay.

                    Myself and 5 girlfriends stayed at Pelican House for a week. What a fabulous location and such an adventure! Jim and Gail had an incredible notebook that told us all we needed to know to set up our week's activities. The house was in a superb, private location and a perfect spot to start out from each day. The house was quiet, beds comfortable and everything was in the kitchen that we needed. After touring each day, the only thing we regret was that we only had Julietta cook for us one evening. We should have had her make us dinner every other night as there was so much food, we had many leftovers. You can tell that the property owners are very involved in the community and well respected as everyone knew them and spoke fondly of them. They support many local groups. If we can swing it, next year we want to stay 2 weeks. Hated to go home when we were just starting to feel "island time". We recommend Alex for water taxi to wherever you want to go. Our favorite beach was Anse Cochon.

                    Our week visit at Pelican house was the best vacation ever. The photos and listing description here are accurate, but only touch the surface of what you will experience at this darling hide-away. The 3 bedrooms, each with a bath (and endless hot water), are well appointed and very comfortable. For the two king bedrooms, there are double screened louvered doors that open on to the main living area offering a fantastic view of Marigot Bay. However, keeping the bedroom doors closed ensure you will not have uninvited mosquitoes sleeping with you at night. The twin bedroom/bath opens onto a screened sitting area. Although other reviewers mention bad mosquitoes, we did not find that to be the case during our stay. I was only bitten once the entire week and I am usually the main course for any single biting bug within a 3 mile radius. The house sits on the side of the hill giving you a beautiful view of the rising sun over the mountains and its evening descent into the azure sea. We were even lucky enough to see the famous "green flash" one night. The full galley kitchen has folding louvered shutters that open to the living area so that who ever has food detail is not closed off from the other guests. The living area is open to the elements on one full side offering a true "bay window view." Think large veranda…I was a little wary that the rain would blow into the living area. That thought was tested the first day we arrived and because of the extra long overhang of the roof we stayed nice and dry while we enjoyed the moving showers. The view of the bay cannot be fully captured by a photo. It is framed by lush vegetation, towering palm trees and colorful bougainvilleas. Our weather was balmy and the air was fresh. In the mornings we were visited by delightful bull finches who feasted (or fought) over pieces of fruit that Gail laid out for them, while humming birds rose from the bougainvilleas to check out the commotion. We swam, sailed, snorkeled, shopped, hiked and ate our way through 7 glorious days. You can be as active or as lazy as you wish without even leaving the bay area. We also visited the hot springs, the beautiful restaurant at Ladera, attended Fish Fry at Anse LaRay, saw Pigeon Island and the Pitons. The only caution I would express is for driving. I am convinced that the roads of St. Lucia are the original inspiration for the most wicked roller coasters of the world.

                    Jim, We had a fabulous vacation and LOVED Pelican House – the outdoor living was awesome, right down to countless games of Sequence on the table there. Everyone was super helpful and Julietta cooked us a great meal. we don't think we can surpass the comfort we felt at your house, including your staff and your attention to us during the process – its the best rental house we ever stayed in!

                    This was our first time in St. Lucia. We rented a car for the week and did a fair bit of touring. There are many wonderful spots, but in the end I was really glad we chose to stay in Marigot Bay. The views from Pelican House are spectacular, there is a good selection of nearby bars and restaurants, and there are plenty of things to do. The house itself is spacious, comfortable and has a unique "funky cottage" feel accented with local artwork and bright colors. The owners are very responsive and helpful. A few things to keep in mind: - If you're planning to do a lot of cooking, note that the closest well-stocked grocery store is about 15 minutes away by car, and food is pricey. Most items are at least double the price in Canada. If you have room in your luggage, consider bringing a good selection of staples. One thing that surprised me was that fresh fruit and vegetables (even locally grown) are not abundant. - If you're looking for fresh fish, ask around in the bay ... local fishermen will be happy to sell you the morning's catch, at reasonable prices. - Although a car certainly isn't necessary, we were glad we rented one to explore the island. Bear in mind that renting is pricey and the roads are like rollercoaters, up and downhill with one hairpin turn after another. Taxis and water-taxis (which can be hired to explore the coast) are a good alternative. - One of the unique features of Pelican House is that it's halfway up a steep hill on the north side of Marigot Bay, which means that you get to it via a short water-taxi trip, then a three-minute walk to the base of a small funicular tram/lift (or you continue on the path up about 100 steps). This means it is nicely tucked away and quiet. But remember that it takes time to get around, so don't be in too much of a hurry (you are on vacation, after all). If you like, you can pay someone to carry your luggage, shopping bags, etc - but the cost adds up pretty quickly. - An open wireless internet signal is accessible from the house, but the signal isn't particularly strong. We had a great time at Pelican House and I would recommend it highly.

                    My family of four stayed at Pelican House for 2 weeks in March/April, 2011, and we LOVED it! From here, we were able to dive with Dive Fair Helen (about a 3 minute walk to the dive shop), hang out on the beach, walk to excellent restaurants (Yacht Club highly recommended!), make our own meals when we wanted, rest, relax, check e-mails, watch birds, and do lots of other island activities. We had a grand time at this most beautiful place. Juliette, the housekeeper, is a wonderful person and couldn't do enough for us. Smally, our taxi driver, was always dependable and took us to many beautiful places on St. Lucia. Thank you for a wonderful trip!
