  • Perfect!

    "We stayed at The Landings for our wedding week and it was a fantastic home away from home for us to have as a base during a very busy and fabulous week! The unit is beautiful, nicely equipped, and very clean and spacious. It is very close to the beach and the beachside restaurant, as well as one of the pools. We cooked a couple of times in the unit which worked out great to save some cash. The beach at The Landings is lovely - we visited a bunch of resorts that wedding guests were staying at and none of them compared. The people who work at The Landings were lovely and it was just a wonderful stay overall. We did not want to leave!! In St Lucia we recommend doing an all day boat tour to Pitons/mud baths etc (we went with Joe Knows Tours). Restaurants we tried and loved were Spinnakers, Jacques and 1461. Thank you to Karen and Dan for everything and for a wonderful stay at your beautiful place, we hope to be back soon!"

  • Wonderful Relaxing Stay at Date House, St. Lucia

    "We had a wonderfully relaxing week staying at Date House for a week in January 2015. We took the advice about not driving ourselves from the airport, and would recommend that for all guests who don't know the area, as the villa is a bit tricky to find, especially in the dark. Robert, the owner, organised a taxi for us using a local company who he was familiar with, and that worked out very well, we ended up using the same driver to take us back to the airport. The property is lovely, very well maintained and with lots of space, including cover from the fairly frequent rain showers we had that week. There are also many places to shelter from the sun and a lovely pool, which I swam in each morning before breakfast. The views from the garden are wonderful, and even better from the balcony of the master bedroom. We were a bit concerned that the villa was too far from anywhere to eat, as we were keen on trying some of the local restaurants, but were pleasantly surprised to find out that Rodney Bay Marina was very close by, and a short drive away, with a very good selection of restaurants and the best coffee around!! We tried quite a few of the local restaurants and one of the best was at Calabash Cove, literally a walk down from the villa. We went for lunch there a couple of times, the managers are really friendly and were happy for us to use the beach after lunch once, even though we weren't staying at the hotel itself. We didn't eat in much but had the pleasure of drinking Anne Marie's fantastic rum punch, and also having her pumpkin soup one evening. I had heard that her chicken curry was also amazing and would certainly ask her to cook us some more of the local dishes on my next visit - which I'm very keen on making! I really enjoyed my stay in the villa and will recommend it to friends who are looking for a holiday in St. Lucia."

  • Very nice stay

    "We really enjoyed our stay in this cozy apartment. The place is very clean and comfortable with a magnificent sea view. It is in a good location, next to the public transportation so you can visit easily Rodney Bay/Gros Islet and Castries and can walk to a nice small beach. Clarence and his wife were very nice and accommodating. Our friend needed to come back to St-Lucia and stay 2 more days in the apartment and Clarence was kind enough to pick him up to the airport. Thanks again Clarence, we really appreciate. We definitely recommend this place."

  • Amazing Stay- exactly as described, a peaceful paradise in the caribbean with the best view ever!

    "We had an amazing stay at the Sur La Mer house. I think that they describe the property very well, and the staff did an excellent job making sure we had a great time. Starting with John as I dealt with him during the entire booking process was an absolute pleasure, he was very fast with responses, and it was nothing but a great experience booking through him. Luenda was the housekeeper, she was great, I highly recommend taking advantage of her cooking, as her authentic st. lucian meals were better than most restaurants we ate at. They were our favorite meals of the trip. Paul was a great taxi/shuttle service, we originally were going to use a rental car, but once we got there we just decided to relax more instead of constantly being on the go with a rental car. We used Paul's service for the shuttle to and from the airport, which I do recommend as it is a long drive back to the house from UVF airport, and he will stop at the store if needed. The local bus is great, it cost about 60 cents US, and we used it every day to go to Rodney bay, Gros Islet, and North Pigeon Fort island. There is a stop for the local bus right at the bottom of the street for Sur La Mer, so it was convenient. However, just for your awareness it is a beautiful, but hilly walk to and from the main road from the house. We used it as a good exercise, but if you don't like walking I would say to just use the taxi service right to the house. Property: was Amazing, view is exactly as shown in pictures, very private, and as they say "million dollar views" House: very nice, as described, the decks were great to hang out on and relax. I do recommend bug spray as mosquito's can be quite annoying, but to be expected with tropical environments. Recommendations: Have Luenda cook a few meals for you, Curry Chicken was Amazing!; Gros Islet Friday night "jump off" party was a great time, great street vendor food, and I personally liked Castro's bar before the party got started to hang out at; Don't overdo yourself, relax at the house, it is truly a gem; North Pigeon Fort Island was right above Sandals Grande, we hanged out at the beach along there and it was great. The restaurant on North Pig. Fort Island is awesome, very cheap and great food. The short 10-15 minute walk to the top is well worth it, it has AMAZING views; Thanks for everything, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, God Bless and look forward to next time."
