Five well deserved stars for this little piece of paradise.
"During the last few years, we've been in quite a few islands in the Caribbean and stayed in similar type of accommodation. This one is definitely one of the best! It's hard to describe the joy that we felt when we first saw the beautiful view over Marigot Bay from the porch or, the feeling of total relaxation while sipping rum (or drinking a smoothie from mangoes freshly picked from the tree behind the villa) in the hammock. One special Thank You goes to Jim, for his effort in putting together a very comprehensive "user manual" for his guests which proved extremely useful. We won't reiterate all the things already mentioned in other reviews but we wholeheartedly recommend this place and we'll definitely come back."

"We, two couples in our forties, escaped from the last kicks of winter in Switzerland to this paradise where you can stay all the time in shorts and t-shirt.
In the process of booking the two last weeks of March 2015 it was great how fast the owner, John, responded to my mails. He was also very helpful and gave very good advices. His on-island-agent Ena was also very helpful and gave great advices for sailing, horseback riding and a hike up the gros piton.
The house is located in a beautiful, remote area. It is at the end of a dead end street and pretty quiet. You hear the noises of the birds, frogs and insects more than anything else. :-)
Nevertheless in 10-15 minutes you can be -by rented car or taxi- in Rodney Bay or Castries with all its restaurants and supermarkets.
The size of the house felt just right for the 4 of us. It was neither too big, nor too small. Having the wonderful pool to ourselves was better than we expected. Many times a day we would go for a short swim to cool off a bit and refresh. We ended up going less to beaches and staying more around the wonderful house. Reading, sleeping...just relaxing.
The view of the ocean from the house and especially from the infinity edge pool is breathtaking. Sipping on a cool Piton or Heineken in the pool while the sun is melting into the ocean is something I can highly recommend. ;-)
Even from the bathroom of the master bedroom you can see the ocean.
The whole stay even exceeded our already high expectations. Everything was as described. I can highly recommend booking a stay at this wonderful house in paradise."

"we stayed at the castle on th sea for a week and we wish it could have been longer!!! Plans to come back with our family in the near future! The accommodations were excellent,the view amazing, the locals friendly! Sitting on the veranda with the cool breeze while having a meal, looking out at the beautiful Caribbean Sea, is just the most delightful, amazing experience! We rented a car and had and no trouble finding our way around the island! Both a great adventure, and a wonderful relaxing vacation! We hope to return often to The Castle On The Sea!!"

"We just returned from Les Chaudieres - and it was everything we hoped for and more. Our goal was to really get to know (with our three children) a new country. And Les Chaudieres was perfect. The staff made us feel at home. All reviews rave about the food/cooking - and they should. Christy, the property manager and chef, is an absolutely amazing cook who will go out of her way to delight your palate. Yes, the groceries are more expensive on the island than in the states - but they are much cheeper and better quality than eating out. This is not a resort - it is a family home - one with a rich tradition and history that you will feel when you arrive. It is "campy" - in the sense that it feels like a good friend's personal retreat / lake house. Not fancy - but comfy. If you are squeamish about an occasional bug, frog, bat or lizard - this may not be your place as it is very open air and nature will visit from time to time. Many reviewers had no problems with the bugs - we were not so lucky as the breeze died down while we were there - so we recommend taking plenty of the strongest bug spray you can find. But they did not take away from the overall experience. Other recommendations: get to know the staff; they are wonderful people and will give you a much deeper appreciation of St. Lucia and Les Chaudieres. Take a boat cruise early on your trip; Christy can arrange this for you and it will give you a great overview of spots to revisit. Do the zip line adventure in Dennery - and take your camera with you. Enjoy as much time as possible in the hammock under the old almond tree drinking a Durham standard or a rum punch. And get to know as many St. Lucians as you can; we enjoyed them all!"
