Incredible Home and Amenities - Highly Recommended
"My wife and I and our 19 year old son and 16 year old daughter thoroughly enjoyed our week at Tamarind House. Based on the pictures, property description and other reviews, we had very high expectations about the property, and the house and the amenities exceeded even our lofty expectations. This is a very unique property. The photos on the VRBO site are representative of the home and the views but still don't do either justice. The views from every part of the property are spectacular and never get old. The den, dining area, master, second bedroom, and cottage each have direct, open views of the ocean and the Pitons. The open air design allows the trade winds to keep the house very comfortable throughout the day. Also, the property is naturally shaded around the large den and dining area. The pool is larger than we expected (and plenty big enough) and is well maintained. The private tennis court is also well maintained and gets shade during the morning hours and a breeze most of the time. We thoroughly enjoyed both the pool and the tennis court. The staff at the house are exceptional. Ann and Cheryl are outstanding cooks. Every meal was excellent and had a St Lucia flavor - breakfast, lunch, dinner, deserts (homemade gelato). Just tell them fish, chicken, etc. and let them do the rest. We normally are very active on vacations, but not this time. Except for one day of deep sea fishing, we stayed on site and just enjoyed all the property has to offer. We have been fortunate to vacation at some great locations and properties over the years, and Tamarind House is at the top of the list. It is a very unique vacation opportunity.
We had no issues with bugs or wildlife. As other reviews have noted, the road is rough getting to the house but we weren't driving so it wasn't a problem. The driver Po Po is very nice and always available.
Finally, the owner, Nancy, is great to deal with. She is very patient in answering questions and provides all the information and coordination you need to make the trip easy. She has a local property manager who can coordinate your travel and other needs on the island. Everything will be exactly as described and promised."

"When! we come back to St Lucia this is the only place we would ever think of staying! The view of Marigot Bay is breathtaking, the rooms are spotless & the hospitality of Danny & Ann was superb. The Belgium Night" was one of our favorites where we had a home made dinner and different beer from their home country. We still keep in touch with the other people we met while staying there. Can't wait to return!"

"We stayed at the Marina Haven for six nights and our stay was (in the words of our children) AWESOME! It was truly our "home away from home." The property is well kept and provides a wonderful balcony view of the Rodney Bay Marina, especially from the top villas; we simply loved our villa, the Coral Cove. In addition to the lovely decor, the villa consists of two bedrooms; each with its private bathroom, an open concept living and dining area plus kitchen. It was cozy yet provided ample space for our family of five. The villa was very clean and had all the modern amenities one would need to enjoy a vacation away from home. We enjoyed the pool also; the water temperature was always just right.
For those who do not enjoy walking or are not used to doing so, we recommend a vehicle since the villas are located on a hilltop and the climb may prove challenging to some; however, we did not mind the daily exercise since it was just about 7 minutes walk to the main road where we were able to catch a bus. Though our children complained a bit on the climb back up to the villas, they most times beat us to the top! The location of the villas is ideal since it is close to the Rodney Bay Marina, and Rodney Bay Strip where you have easy access to shopping, food, beaches and fun. There is also the GLACE supermarket where we were able to shop for groceries. We were able to get to Pigeon Island by taking the bus , then walking the rest of the way (that walk was a much longer one than the one from the villas to the bus stop).
We highly commend Janine, the property manager, for her excellent customer service. She is very warm and had great suggestions on things to do to make our stay more enjoyable. We also thank Shada, the groundsman for his help during our stay. We would love to return to Marina Haven again and will certainly recommend this property to friends and family."

"Brigand Hill is a wonderful place to stay on this spectacular island. Centrally located on the west coast, the villa provides easy access to a variety of activities all over the island for half or full day trips. It's simple beauty & structure, & impeccably maintained grounds reflect the island itself. It's just enough without being too much. For those who really want to feel immersed in the St. Lucian terrain/climate, it's the perfect place to make your home base. Sitting on a hill above the Anse Galet valley, the villa has surreal views of the rugged topography while providing a glimpse of the Caribbean Sea to its west. The bedroom upstairs in the main building has screened shutters, allowing the constant tradewinds to create a cool & airy environment while you sleep at night or nap during the day. When there's a rainstorm, you can hear it approaching as it comes down the valley & descends upon the house. If you're lucky enough to be sleeping when this happens, this room couldn't be a better place to be. At night, you'll hear the sounds of the rainforest take over, & it's like falling asleep on a perfect summer night. Add a bag of ice to the grocery list so you don't run out using the blender :)
George, the caretaker, is extremely knowledgeable on anything/everything St. Lucia-related. Happy to answer all your questions to guide you in the right direction when making plans, he'll even accompany you on an excursion! He came with us on our Gros Piton hike & barely even broke a sweat! A jack of all trades, he's eager to share his passion for the island. Vera is a love & happily and graciously keeps the house in order during your stay so you don't have to. I'm pretty particular about other people doing my laundry, but she took scrupulous care of my clothes. She even had flowers on the bedspread upstairs upon our arrival - so romantic. Bertilla is a super sweet, talented cook & prepared some really great meals for us. She'll make you anything but I suggest you request some local dishes like christophene casserole, chicken curry, rice & beans, or pumpkin soup - all delish! She set a lovely table every night outside by the pool, specially folded napkins included. This crew left no detail unnoticed and their hard work revealed itself in my experience at the villa. They added elements of ease and welcoming grace to the trip which made the island as a whole even more special. I can't wait to go back to St. Lucia, and I'll definitely be staying at Brigand Hill."
