"Our two families (4 adults 4 children) had the best holiday ever at Villa Mandoo. It was going to be a special trip because our husbands were crossing the Atlantic to Rodney Bay from Gran Canaria in the ARC 2014 sailing rally, but it turned out to be the so much more; a holiday of a lifetime that we will all remember forever! We spent 3 weeks over christmas and new year at the villa; enjoying big family meals on the covered terrace with beautiful views of the sea on both sides, a constant cooling breeze, lovely big garden with fruit trees, the long pool which the children (ages 10-16) and adults alike were constantly in, the snorkelling at the bottom of the garden was fab; I saw Lion fish, Puffer fish, octopus, lobster and many other beautiful tropical fish. We couldn't believe at luck at finding such a fantastic place. Our friend's boat was able to anchor in Cuti cove as well, so we all swam out to it to many times, and were able to watch the local fishermen do their thing. It's very private apart from the odd visiting boat from windjammer to go snorkelling. We all loved just hanging out at the villa playing games, eating, swimming in the pool and the sea, watching the sunsets. The outside showers were great, especially at sunset. All bedrooms have their own bathroom and the beds are very comfy and big too, and the wi-fi was handy for the teenagers! Marie Ann and Anthony were helpful and it was great to have someone to do some chores. On christmas day about 20 of us had a BBQ lunch on the terrace, so you can see it is a great place for entertaining; spacious with enough tables, chairs for everyone! On New Years Eve we were able to see the fireworks from the Windjammer resort as well as the ones in Rodney Bay.
All in all it really felt like Paradise at Villa Mandoo! Thanks to the first Mr Morgan for building a great house in such a fantastic location on the lush island of St Lucia."

"We stayed at the Marina Haven for six nights and our stay was (in the words of our children) AWESOME! It was truly our "home away from home." The property is well kept and provides a wonderful balcony view of the Rodney Bay Marina, especially from the top villas; we simply loved our villa, the Coral Cove. In addition to the lovely decor, the villa consists of two bedrooms; each with its private bathroom, an open concept living and dining area plus kitchen. It was cozy yet provided ample space for our family of five. The villa was very clean and had all the modern amenities one would need to enjoy a vacation away from home. We enjoyed the pool also; the water temperature was always just right.
For those who do not enjoy walking or are not used to doing so, we recommend a vehicle since the villas are located on a hilltop and the climb may prove challenging to some; however, we did not mind the daily exercise since it was just about 7 minutes walk to the main road where we were able to catch a bus. Though our children complained a bit on the climb back up to the villas, they most times beat us to the top! The location of the villas is ideal since it is close to the Rodney Bay Marina, and Rodney Bay Strip where you have easy access to shopping, food, beaches and fun. There is also the GLACE supermarket where we were able to shop for groceries. We were able to get to Pigeon Island by taking the bus , then walking the rest of the way (that walk was a much longer one than the one from the villas to the bus stop).
We highly commend Janine, the property manager, for her excellent customer service. She is very warm and had great suggestions on things to do to make our stay more enjoyable. We also thank Shada, the groundsman for his help during our stay. We would love to return to Marina Haven again and will certainly recommend this property to friends and family."

Wonderful view. Unique setting high on the hills with view of the Pitons
"As advertised, the view of the Pitons and the ocean are wonderful. Sit and watch hummingbirds, grey tremblers, etc work the trees and flowers. At night, watch the sun set and the "glowing" click beetles come out. For first time visitors to St. Lucia, note that all walking involves some very steep roads/paths. Anse Chastanet is close by, but it is a hard walk; rent a car to get around and make trips to the waterfalls, town and other nearby attractions. Do not be put off by needing to use a vehicle; Anse Chastenet and Sugar Beach resorts provide on-site shuttles for their guests due to the steepness of the roads/paths.
La Bagatelle is a well-maintained villa. Kitchen is dated, but everything works. Beds are very comfortable. Pool is nice. Note: there is no air-conditioning. Not a problem for us, there are ceiling fans and trade winds. We are not accustomed to having a housekeeper on-site from 9 am till 3 pm. The housekeeper was not intrusive, but it made us feel awkward to be sitting around as someone did chores in the villa."

"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!"
