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."

"From the minute we stepped into the property the fabulous view took our breath away. We had dinner a few nights before at he Cliff House (similar view), but this was even better. The layout is very livable with the bedrooms removed from the living area to allow privacy for all.
The drive up was a little daunting, but, to be honest we are not used to left hand driving. We did get reasonably comfortable after a while.
The staff (Ivy, Shane, Michael) were very nice to us and unobtrusive. The villa was well maintained by them.
Some small improvements could be made (broken trash can, chair in need of repair); but, all-in we loved staying here and would not hesitate to return."

"The perfect cottage to get away without the crowds of resort visitors. Beautifully situated in view of the Petit Piton and Caribbean waters with lush tropical vegetation. The location is perfect to explore all of the island of St Lucia and is close to the most visited attractions. Ferrard does an amazing job with the grounds and Magdalene is a delight and keeps the cottage in good order. Ian and Henriette have done a wonderful job keeping this secluded cottage quaint and comfortable for their guests. Everyone is very accommodating and we would highly recommend staying at the Hermitage Cottage!"

"The unit- wonderful! We came for the week and it was exactly what we needed. The property was the perfect size for us, and as others said, was well equipped. I might suggest bringing an aux cord to hook up you ipod. The bed was luxurious and so comfortable and the jacuzzi on the patio overlooking the marina was utilized at least twice a day. The location of the unit within the complex was also quite nice, on the first floor with the marina view, with a quick 2 minute walk to sandy beaches and restaurants. It was very clean and definitely a great find.
The resort- Everyone at The Landings was so friendly, specifically the bellmen, the concierge desk and the front desk staff. Though the resort is a bit far from the airport (90 min taxi), it was also the best of the others we researched and also came across while on our trip. The amenities were plentiful, the beach was close and private to the resort, with very soft sand. The resort also provides a US $10 round trip shuttle to Rodney Bay to grab groceries or go shopping, get lunch, etc. We enjoyed the Callaloo restaurant on the beach and the Palms for fine dining, but didn't have as good of experience at The Beach Club (which also provides the room service). Even though it was busy season during our stay, we never had a problem tracking down a beach chair. We booked the couples massage at the resort spa, which was also quite nice. We found that we did not need to rent a car, between the shuttles and the easy access to taxis, we were set.
The island- This was our first time to Saint Lucia and we loved every minute of it. We tried the Carnival catamaran tour to Soufriere for snorkeling, botanical gardens, Diamond Waterfall, and the volcano. The zipline tour was so much fun in the rainforest, and we also booked the sunset cruise through the concierge. We also made the quick walk over to Pigeon Island and hiked up to Fort Rodney for some incredible views.
Thank you Karen and Dan! What a fantastic vacation to remember forever!"
