  • 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."

  • 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."

  • 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!"

  • 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."
