The island is 238sq (616sqkm), 27 miles long, 14 miles wide with a combination of high mountains, forests, low lying lands and beaches. A central mountain range runs the length of the island, with peaks ranging between 1000 and 3145 feet. Forests dominate the mountains, while jasmine, scarlet chenille and wild orchids provide splashes of colour to the lush green slopes. The two towering volcanic cones on the SW coast, Gros Piton (797m) and Petit Piton (750m) are one of the Caribbean’s most famous landmarks. The volcanic origin of the island provides visitors with an opportunity to visit a “drive-in volcano” and dip in the therapeutic Sulphur springs. Scuba Diving/Sailing superb.
Some key events:
Feb - Independence Day
April - Golf Open
May - St Lucia Jazz Festival
Jun/Jul - Carnival
Aug - Junior International Tennis
Oct - St Lucia Bill Fishing Tournament
Nov - Arrival of ARC (Atlantic Rally for Cruisers), the world's largest transatlantic rally

The famous Reduit Beach is pure paradise; soft golden sand facing West into the calm, warm Caribbean Sea usually offering its gentle sea breeze. The sunset's are stunning and the water is warm all year round. The island is a treasure trove of beautiful and unspoilt beaches and coves - explore by land and/or sea. There’s also lots to do if you’re the adventurous type. You can explore on foot, by mountain/quad bike, or even on horseback. Taxis, hire cars and day trips are all readily available.
There are 2 airports. The smaller domestic airport is about 15 mins by car. The international airport is in the south of the island and about 1 hour 20 mins by car, the drive is quiet, scenic and and provides a breathtaking introduction to the island. Alternatively helicopter transfers are available. Time difference, GMT -4 hours. BA & Virgin both operate direct flights from the UK. There is no need for a hire car when staying at the villa unless you want to explore further a field.
The villa is just off the main road parallel to the beach. The shops and supermarkets are within 200 yards and the bars and restaurants are along the main road. The beach is a 10 minute walk away. The Marina with its bars and restaurants is 5 mins by either land or water taxi. Rodney Bay has a wide choice of bars and restaurants with live music and plenty going on. Pigeon Island is 10/15 mins by land/water taxi. The capital, Castries is about 15/20 minutes by car/taxi depending on traffic.
The yacht marina on the other side of the Harbour has a cluster of shops, cafes, bars and a bank (with ATM). It is easy to hire a quality car (although not necessary as all local amenities are within walking distance) - a temporary driving licence is obtained from the police station. Water Taxis can be arranged to pick you up from the Villa to take you to the famous Pigeon Island heritage resort and beach. The Villa is no-smoking indoors however ash trays are provided for use on the patio/garden.
Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: We are Peter & Yvonne from the UK. No 17 The Harbour is our 2nd home and we love both our house and the island of St Lucia. We have lovingly furnished and equipped our house to a high standard as we want it to feel like home from home for both ourselves and any guests. We have received some great comments from guests and have a number of returning guests. We have three grown up children who also love the house and particularly like the fact that everything in Rodney Bay is within easy walking distance and that there is a great selection of bars, shops, cafes and restaurants.
Why the Owner Chose Gros Islet: We have sailed in the Caribbean for many years and of all the islands decided that St Lucia was the most perfect. It is green, volcanic, stunning scenery, full of history and a great sailing destination. The people are also some of the most friendly we have come across in the Caribbean and the choice of restaurants and bars is brilliant.
We chose Rodney Bay as we wanted a property with a private dock for our boat. We also wanted to buy from a reputable builder. We have not been disappointed with either the house or the location - in fact every time we go we like it more!!
The Unique Benefits at this House: The house is set behind secure electric gates giving beautiful tranquility overlooking the Harbour but is still in the centre of the resort so has great access to all amenities. The house is convenient for walking to the supermarket, shops, cafes, bars, restaurants, beach plus taxis are readily available if you want to explore further afield. Hire cars are also available close by but are generally unnecessary. Water Taxis will come to the dock in front of the house making transfer to the Marina, Pigeon Island, The Landings etc very easy. There are only 25 houses/apartments on the complex and often many are unoccupied so the pool and gardens are quiet.
