"My husband & I spent our 30th anniversary in this little gem! 11 nights we were able to be there, and it was worth every penny. Because I knew the island prior to arrival, I was concerned the road close to it would be too noisy, but it wasn't. The photos do not do it justice, except for the photos from the porch. Every morning and evening we watched sailboats go by! Because there was AC, our sleeping was good. Very clean & comfortable, and the owners very accommodating. Cooking our own meals in the well-stocked kitchen was a plus for us, too, and having our evening meals on the covered porch was excellent. You won't be disappointed!"Guest: Starla Date of Stay: June 2014 Review Submitted: July 11, 2014View listing
"Le Gallarie is a beautiful villa with a stunning vista. Our 2 week stay was effortless and the kind and helpful staff were superb. The sunsets from Le Gallarie's deck are breathtaking. The food was very good and varied, fresh fish and shellfish are available via the local fishermen. There is a steep path down to a pebbled beach that is superb for snorkelling. However we spent most of our time diving the many local marine reserves with the local dive master Chester, whos business Action Adventure Divers can be found on the beach in Soufriere bay. This was our second stay and both were exceptional vacations. I would highly recommend Le Gallarie. As with anywhere in the Caribbean it's important to wear a high factor sun cream and insect repellent at dawn and dusk."Guest: Paul B Date of Stay: October 2014 Review Submitted: November 7, 2014View listing
"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
"Oh my goodness. I can't say enough about the wonderful time we had at Beau Rivage this past week. We had the best family vacation ever. It was 11 of us and the ages ranged from 14-61. The majority of us are ages 30-40 and are very active. Everyone had a great time. The villa is beautiful and is located in a great spot. There were two beaches that we visited daily each was a short walk away. One beach was great for watersports and the other for snorkeling. The water was crystal clear and the beaches were not crowded at all. We played group volleyball, waterskied, went water tubing, sailing, and snorkeling. There were a couple of days when we just went out into the backyard, fired up the grill and had pool parties. The villa was perfect. The staff seasoned the food for the backyard cookouts. We utilized the outdoor surround speaker system for musical entertainment while we swam and hung out in the hot tub. The staff cooked breakfast and lunch for us everyday and the food was excellent! Fedora and Odessa were great. They were so helpful and our group just fell in love with them. Fedora made sure she brought us a couple of Mangos when she found out it was my husband's favorite fruit. George drove us everywhere we wanted to go and Kris Wagner arranged the tours for us. She was the "make it happen" lady. Our family is accustomed to staying in all-inclusive resorts for our family vacations, but this time we wanted to try something a little different. I can tell you that this vacation was far better than all the others. There was something for everyone to do at all times. We visited the Volcano, took a mud bath, hung out under the waterfall, took a day sail trip, visited a cocoa plantation, got massages, snorkeled, and just truly enjoyed each other's company. The only regret we each had was not booking the home a few days more. The owner thought of everything. Anything you could need, is already in place. If you are looking for a great time and just want to enjoy each other I highly recommend Beau Rivage. I planned this family vacation and I feel sorry for the next person who has to plan the family vacation because this vacation set the bar pretty high. Sue ( the owner) was extremely helpful. She made sure I had all the contacts and places to go before we even made it to St. Lucia. During the week she called in to check on us and to see if there was anything we needed. Everything was first class. I can't say enough about the place."Guest: Dana T. Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: July 16, 2014View listing
