"The house is awesome. The pictures just can't do it justice. If you are looking for privacy, the best view of the Pitons, and to get away from the world; this is it. Barb is an excellent VRBO owner! On top of her managing the logistice of our trip flawlessly, , she hooked us up with her connection for scuba. If you don't go underwater while in St. Lucia you have missed its most beautiful treasure. The snorkeling just behind the house is better than most anywhere I've ever been. The climb down has a lot of stairs and a some rocky steps at the bottom, but it I easily manageable. It not a sandy beach, but the views in the water rule.
The house is an open concept with large hurricane shuttered doors that remain open throughout the day. The breeze kept it cool, but there are some mosquitoes. Hey its a tropical island, there will be bugs. The bedrooms we stayed in are A/C, so no worries there. The pool is excellent, it is large for a private home and the views of the Pitons are perfect.
There is a lot of room on the decks behind the house, lots of room to relax or to party.
The staff is excellent, all of them. I do recommend getting your fist meal cooked by Charmaine and Cookie, it was nice to not deal with cooking after dealing with the airlines and immigration. Security is top notch. Albert is great to talk to and he has a friendly dog named Mix; make no mistake tho, he would be a problem to any intruder. We felt very safe the whole time there. Grounds keeper is also very cool, you really wont know he's there unless you look for him. He does like coffee. ;)
Other than food, there is no reason to leave once there. We are adventurers tho and we spent each day running around the island. I do recommend the following which are all within 15 minutes driving from the house, Sugar Beach, Anse Chastanet, and Jade Mountain. Eat at Orlando's, Ladera, and Boucan. Do the chocolate tour while at Boucan. Do not miss out and go scuba diving on the north side of the smaller Piton.
Ben and Bar, thank you for all your help and allowing us to stay in your awesome home.
Charles and Lora"
