"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."

"Karen and Jerome did a phenomenal job hosting us. Jerome met us on time at the apartment and gave us a walkthrough. Whenever we had questions, they were quick to reply. We asked for some dinner recommendations and got some great ideas. They also didn't bother us or show up unannounced. As it was my wife's and my honeymoon, we appreciated having privacy. The location is great, just a bit away from the grocery store and plenty private. We did a day trip to the beach. Definitely recommend getting a rental car. It affords a lot of mobility."

Their name is spot-on accurate: a natural paradise
"The cottage is on a hilltop, overlooking the Bay and the Caribbean Sea, surrounded by a botanical garden's worth of tropical plants. A little bird that lives in a tree by the cottage literally ate crumbs out of my hand.
We had our own mini kitchen.
Internet was available upstairs, but didn't reach the cabin (which is a GOOD thing!!)
The pool was a few seconds away.
There were a couple other guests part of the time, but a lot of the time we basically had the place to ourselves.
The owners/hosts David and Wanda were super friendly, and found just the right balance of interaction - telling stories of St Lucia history and culture as well as of their own lives - and leaving us privacy.
Just getting to the place each day was part of the fun, driving the 4WD up the unpaved 1 lane road.
The place was clean and open and comfortable, with fancy furniture and nifty little touches like a shower enclosure made of glass block and giant fan blades reminiscent of fronds.
There isn't much way anything could have been improved upon without compromising something else.
I would def. go back if I ever end up in St Lucia again"

"We just returned from a week long stay at La Batterie. First of all, I want to thank the staff for all they did for us while we were there, they were amazing! This villa is truly your home away from home. It is clean, private and has the most fantastic view of the Pitons. We couldn't have found a better place to stay while in Soufriere! Thank you Michael!
We were welcomed with dinner, drinks and hospitality upon arrival at the villa. The staff was very accommodating and we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner after a long day of traveling. Prior to our arrival in St. Lucia, we made arrangements with Stephanie to prepare some local dishes for our friends and family who would be visiting the villa the next evening. Stephanie went above and beyond our expectations. The food was wonderful and we all had an excellent time. Our guests from Anse Chastanet loved the villa even more than the resort!
Marilyn, Terry and BK were all wonderful people as well! Terry brought us fresh coffee, spices and gifts that his wife made for us, which I will always cherish. Bk was awesome; we enjoyed his company in the evenings.
Our favorite place to relax during the day was poolside and the deck at night, the stars were amazing! If you are interested in sailing and snorkeling I suggest Mystic Man tours, we did a half day sail and enjoyed every minute of it. We also visited the volcano and spent time at Anse Chastanet beach, where snorkeling is also available. Our son and daughter-in-law had a beautiful wedding on Anse Mamin beach, which was perfect! We met so many nice people and if we ever have the opportunity to visit again, we will most definitely stay at La Batterie.
Thanks for the memories!"
