  • An absolute slice of heaven in the Caribbean

    "From the moment we arrived to receive the warmest and most genuine welcome from Danny and Ann, until our regret-filled departure one week later, my wife and I simply loved every minute of our time at Marigot Palms. The property is impeccably cared for and is in absolutely perfect condition from top to bottom, inside and out. The view of magical Marigot Bay (where the Dr. Doolittle movie was filmed in 1967) filled us with wonder each and every morning - and afternoon and evening. We explored the island of St. Lucia quite thoroughly (we rented a car, but Danny is a skilled and generous tour guide, as well), and our assessment is that Marigot Bay must surely be among the most beautiful spots on this beautiful island. St. Lucia is an incredibly friendly, safe, and interesting island to visit. Danny and Ann's hospitality simply must be experienced first-hand to be truly understood. They are the perfect hosts, who inevitably feel like new friends from the start. When my wife got sick and needed emergency medical care, Danny jumped on the phone and got us to the best emergency facility on the island (about a 25 minute drive) - by the way, the ER care equalled any experience we've had in the U.S., and all was well in the end. Marigot Palms has great access to all that Marigot Bay has to offer, including multiple restaurants, and a beach with facilities for renting paddle boards, kayaks, sunfishes, etc. This is a delightfully different vacation experience from the all-inclusive properties throughout the Caribbean. Marigot Palms is exclusive without being prohibitively expensive - it's one of the best deals going in the islands, and if there were more than 5 stars, I would certainly assign the highest rating possible for every single attribute and characteristic of this wonderful slice of heaven."

  • Simplistic Luxury & Serenity

    "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."

  • St. Lucia DateHouse Villa

    "We had never been to St. Lucia before and we needed a minimum of 2 bedrooms ( 4 people) and a full kitchen for our 1 week stay. We found this rental villa on line and, the pictures were very enticing... and, after talking with the owner, Robert, who was very detailed about location, transportaion, restaurants, nearby beaches etc we decided to book the villa. Once we arrived in St. Lucia on saturday afternoon and had a Taxi bring us from the airport to the villa (approximately 1.25 hour drive) we arrived at this place set on a hill above the carribean sea with spectacular views. The on-line pictures actually do not do justice to this home away from home. The views in every direction are amazing. The housekeeper "Ann Marie" had dinner waiting for us when we arrived (at our request because we were arriving late) and she stayed and showed us around.We could not belive how nice the facility was. Very spacious for 4 or more people (4 bedrooms available) and the pool is where we spent most of our time when we were there. We did rent a car and take some tours of the area (left side driving for those coming from the US). We spent 4 out of the 7 days right at the Villa, using the pool and watching sunsets from both the pool area and the Master Bedroom balcony. Total relaxation!! We also walked to the Calabash cove resort to use the beach facilities and we also went to breakfast and dinner one night. less than 10 minute walk... Ann Marie keeps the place immaculate and you have the flexability to have her there as little or as much as you want during the day. We chose to have her there only 2 out of the 7 days. She was very interesting to talk to since she knows the ins and outs of the area. The villa is very safe (has a security system and a front gate so no one bothers you) and we will difintely go back. It certainly beats the resorts and dealing with many other guests competing for chaises, pool space etc.-- this is a very private place."

  • Once In a Lifetime Experience

    "La Batterie Villa exceeded my expectations. It is hard to put my experience in words but if I had to chose one it would be - paradise. I was welcomed by Clavie at the airport. He is beyond friendly and takes care of you 100%. He drove me from the airport to the villa. I was then introduced to Marilyn, Stephanie and Terry. I went on a tour around the villa and was surprised with an amazing dinner - compliments of the owners. I had pumpkin soup with local vegetables and a fresh salad - could not have been better. I sat down for a second and looked out at the breathtaking view of the Carribean sea and the Pitons. This view has to be the best on the island. I can not stress this enough. Every day I would wake up - still in awe of this view. La Batterie is a treasure and enraptures all that is beautiful in this breathtaking country. Subsequent wonderful attributes of this villa include the salt water pool/lounge area and the surrounding lush gardens. The bougainvillea flowers were my favorite - they produce coral and fuscia flowers. There are also several other exotic flowers including helconia. The gardens are a joy and if you appreciate nature you will love La Batterie. In regards to the pool - WOW! First of all, the salt water is unique and does not damage the skin like chlorine. The color of the pool is also beautiful. It is blue and catches the sun in all of the right ways. I spent a lot of the duration of my trip reading poolside with a nice refreshing glass of local grapefruit juice. Lastly, each bedroom in this villa holds a certain charm. I stayed in the piton suite and let me tell you - the view was out of this world. I would open my doors each morning greeted by the beauty of this island. Did I mention there are fresh flowers placed throughout the house upon arrival? It is hard to put my feelings/thoughts in words but I truly enjoyed my time at La Batterie. Saint Lucia is a one-of-a-kind island and staying at La Batterie made it unforgettable. I can only hope I will be fortunate enough to stay at this villa once again."
