"Too many good things to say about the "castle on the sea". From the moment you arrive till the moment you leave the view from the veranda is captivating. The view from the rooftop is even better and is amazing for star gazing on a clear Carribean night. Each bedroom is spacious and the private bathrooms attached to each really give everyone their own beautiful private space. The kitchen is large and great for trying your hand at some Carribean cooking with the fresh ingredients readily available at the Vieux Fort market nearby. The pool is an excellent place to pull up a lounger with a rum punch or soak in the soft, perfectly warmed salt water (nicest pool water I've ever soaked in). If the ocean is more your cup of tea; Sandy Beach is right down the road and is great for swimming, kite boarding or windsurfing. I can't say enough about what an amazing time our family had staying in this paradise. I highly recommend it and will definitely be back again!"Guest: The Freckle Date of Stay: April 2014 Review Submitted: May 18, 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
"It's hard for me to decide what my favorite part of the trip was, but I must say that the view from the Fortress is something that may stay with me forever. From watching the sun's first rays wake up the island, waves crashing against the cliffs to the left, sailboats pulling in for the day to the right, and people para-sailing straight ahead, to a sunset that perfectly matches the description you read in romance novels... all with just a most amazing and deliciously cool ocean breeze. The owners were helpful, very friendly, and always gave me enough privacy. The villa was clean, everything worked like it should, and having a vehicle made things even more convenient. It was the pleasant and peaceful break I needed, and will definitely be booking a trip for next winter."Guest: Dee Keitha Date of Stay: March 2014 Review Submitted: October 20, 2014View listing
"This was our second trip to St Lucia. Our first was at Sandals for our honeymoon. Ever since then, I wanted to go back and explore this beautiful little island. 5 years later (and with a baby in the oven), we decided to go back and stay at Villa Pomme D'Amour for 7 nights. My wife and I travel quite a bit and usually do the all-inclusive thing every year. This time, we wanted to actually experience the island. Our stay with Josee and Pierre was absolutely wonderful and was exactly what we were looking for. After being greeted quite friendly by Pierre at the airport, we were introduced to Josee with a refreshing (and much needed) Rum Punch along with bruschetta. I was absolutely stunned by the view from our balcony (second floor villa). We had the view of St Lucia's luscious mountains, flowers, plants and the Caribbean water. It was breathtaking.... The villa was beautiful and the pictures don't do it justice. It had 2 bedrooms (each with balconies), kitchen, safe, tv, and a large balcony, where we stayed most of the time. We usually made breakfast every morning and Josee provided some eggs and fruit to get you started. There is a grocery store about 10 minutes away by car. There is a delightful little cove a few minutes away (walking) with some great snorkelling. The pool was also great - it was always warm and romantic especially during the night. This place is right in the rainforest of St Lucia and was quite the experience. Birds come flying on the balcony during the morning looking for feed and the surrounding mountains are so so lush. But when the night hits, the forest becomes alive. You hear all sorts of birds and wildlife - yes it was loud during the night, but it's part of the experience that you just don't get from the big all-inclusives. In my opinion, what makes a great experience from a good one, is the people you meet. Josee and Pierre were absolutely great and genuinely good people who will do anything to make your stay amazing. Josee helped us with our daily itinerary and offered us tips and recommendations regarding some great local restaurants. My wife and I consider Josee and Pierre our new Caribbean friends and I would go back again. FYI, I would rent a car as Marigot Bay is situated in the middle of the island but the roads twist and turn due to the mountains. Driving around is not for the faint of heart but offers some great views. Thank you Josee and Pierre for the wonderful experience! Nick & Barbara"Guest: Nick S.
