"We stayed at La Batterie in October of 2014. The villa itself is beautiful with a wide sweeping view of the bay into Soufriere and the Pitons. The beds are comfortable and large and they all have mosquito netting (which is a must to set up correctly prior to dusk as we learned the hard way!). The villa is very large and open with a nice kitchen outfitted for whatever you might want to cook, a brand new grill and large seating areas. The pool was one of our favorite locations with the great lighting and waterfall adding to all of our evening swims! The road from Soufriere to the villa is very steep and narrow. We used Clavie as our driver rather than rent a vehicle and be concerned about navigating the roads and the left hand drive. Clavie was a wealth of information, very friendly and pointed out things of interest all along the way. Ask him to take you to Fedo's for lunch! The walk to Anse Chastanet beach is a very easy 10 minutes down and and a little longer uphill. Be prepared for the pricing at Anse Chastanet! Any rentals of beach loungers was between $35 to $55 depending on the type. We also hiked up Gros Piton which was amazing, but not for the faint of heart. Be prepared for the sticker shock on this one. You are required to have a guide and it cost us $35 per person to do the hike, not including gratuity to your guide. The staff of La Batterie definitely made our stay amazing. Cynthia cooked for us twice (her Chicken Curry is out of this world) and both her and Marilyn kept the place looking amazing. Cynthia also did shopping for us prior to our arrival, so it was great to arrive, have a fantastic meal from Cynthia and have food for the next few days with no worries! BK, our night watchman, made us feel very safe every evening. Terry, the groundskeeper, watched out for the house during the day and roasted fresh coffee for us! The staff at La Batterie are all very special and they really add to the overall experience here. Michael, the owner, was also an incredible host and resource. He provided our first meal when we arrived as well as a nice gift basket. In addition, his responsiveness and detailed suggestions were a great help as we planned our trip! We would recommend La Batterie to anyone visiting Soufriere without hesitation! Tiffany, Gabe, Emil & Sarah"Guest: Tiffany D. Date of Stay: October 2014 Review Submitted: October 27, 2014View listing
"We rented this property on the recommendation of friends and had researched it and others before booking. The photos of Admiral View on the website are great; but, to experience this place in person is even better! Jessica greeted us upon our arrival, and both Jessica and Pinkley stopped by on the second day to be sure we were settled and everything was okay. They are truly gracious people who wanted to be sure all our expectations were met. Not only were our expectations met, they were exceeded!! The property and villa are beautiful, classy, comfortable, spacious and clean. The view from the balconies is spectacular and the grounds are lovely! The amenities made us feel like we were at home; this was very important to us as we did not want to be in a resort with hundreds of other tourists. It was great to have the pool for the days when we didn't feel like going to the beach and we enjoyed sitting poolside at night to have a nightcap. We appreciated that Admiral View is in a quiet, residential area; yet, you are only about a 5-minute drive to Rodney Bay for shopping, restaurants, nightlife and beaches. Jessica and Pinkley are wonderful people who obviously take pride in their villas and they make sure you have a truly great vacation experience. We are so glad that we chose Admiral Villa and have already indicated that we will be returning next year. This is a rare find and a true gem!!"Guest: Kim P.

"We just came back from a week at Tamarind House and can confirm that all that has been said about the place is absolutely true. The house itself is truly unique, lots of wide open spaces and amazing architecture. Built not so long ago, it has a unique old Caribbean feel to it. Large airy rooms make you feel like you are part of the incredible scenery outside. With views overlooking beautiful flowers and trees, the Pitons, the sea, a gorgeous sunset, sitting on the deck at anytime is like watching a giant IMAX nature movie. We particularly enjoyed the pool early in the AM, and at dusk when the light was spectacular. Playing tennis in front of the Pitons is also a special experience. Everything was as advertised, Easy to find and well organized. Shermika the house manager was most helpful. Ann and Cheryl the housekeepers were amazing cooks and took all the stress off any food shopping and cooking. Let them cook away, they know what they're doing. Great beach 5min drive at Anse Chastenet, We used 'Feel Good" Water Taxi, Daniel Abraham (# at the house) will take you to fantastic snorkeling sites at reasonable rates. Also ate at Boucan Chocolate Restaurant and Orlandos in Soufriere, very good, Note, road to house is intimidating at first but you get used to it pretty quickly. Car handy but not really needed. Enjoy Tamarind House."Guest: Baja dude & family Date of Stay: October 2014 Review Submitted: November 6, 2014View listing
"Pelican House is the perfect tropical get away for all types of travelers! Whether you're a SCUBA diver, a water enthusiast, or just want to relax, Pelican House provides privacy while having several amenities nearby. We celebrated our 2nd anniversary here and loved the home and island. The open-air layout of the house, the spectacular view of Marigot Bay and the unique tram that drops you right at the front door, makes this house a must stay place in St. Lucia. Compared to other locations on the island, Marigot Bay is quiet with less activity. That's what we like! The diving was great and Scuba Steve picked us up at the local dock. No need to travel to them. The local food was delicious and everyone on the island was so polite, friendly and helpful. Take advantage of Smally, the taxi driver for a variety of tours, or rent a car and explore. Pelican House is everything that Jim and Gail said it was. We would recommend Pelican House to anyone visiting St. Lucia."Guest: Lou V. Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: September 17, 2014View listing
