Paradise in St Lucia
"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!"

"Peace and tranquility embrace you at the Green Heart!
The ever present ocean breeze, with surprisingly low humidity, envelopes you while the awesome views of the ocean and natural landscape surround you from the spacious decks on all three levels.
Each unit is designed with a very functional layout, with all the essentials to satisfy your day to day needs.
Your personable and dedicated staff made each moment a joy throughout our stay. A sincere thanks to Theresa for keeping the Villa sparkling clean and to Martin, for his focus and daily effort in maintaining and developing the various fruit & vegetable gardens and filling the property with beautiful natural plants and flowers to be enjoyed year round. I've got to say "Hey Boss, your freshly prepared coconut milk special morning pick-me-ups were definitely a treat and appreciated every day :)
Hugs and kisses to our friends Bernie & Carol who ensured all our desires were fulfilled and that “Every Little Ting” was Alright!
It was really nice meeting you Ken, sorry we missed you Diane. But, this was such an incredible vacation, I know we will be back soon to spend time with you both and enjoy St Lucia from your eyes - not to mention being able to visit with all the beautiful people we met there this time.
If you want to feel the real St Lucia, you need to experience it from this kind of environment - where you have the opportunity to meet new friends who are happy to share their island and life style."

"We just returned from Les Chaudieres - and it was everything we hoped for and more. Our goal was to really get to know (with our three children) a new country. And Les Chaudieres was perfect. The staff made us feel at home. All reviews rave about the food/cooking - and they should. Christy, the property manager and chef, is an absolutely amazing cook who will go out of her way to delight your palate. Yes, the groceries are more expensive on the island than in the states - but they are much cheeper and better quality than eating out. This is not a resort - it is a family home - one with a rich tradition and history that you will feel when you arrive. It is "campy" - in the sense that it feels like a good friend's personal retreat / lake house. Not fancy - but comfy. If you are squeamish about an occasional bug, frog, bat or lizard - this may not be your place as it is very open air and nature will visit from time to time. Many reviewers had no problems with the bugs - we were not so lucky as the breeze died down while we were there - so we recommend taking plenty of the strongest bug spray you can find. But they did not take away from the overall experience. Other recommendations: get to know the staff; they are wonderful people and will give you a much deeper appreciation of St. Lucia and Les Chaudieres. Take a boat cruise early on your trip; Christy can arrange this for you and it will give you a great overview of spots to revisit. Do the zip line adventure in Dennery - and take your camera with you. Enjoy as much time as possible in the hammock under the old almond tree drinking a Durham standard or a rum punch. And get to know as many St. Lucians as you can; we enjoyed them all!"

"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."
