Welcome To "Villa Bo Lanme" Family Accommodation With 6 Beds And A Games Room
Would you love to live in a house like this, and wake up to these spectacular panoramic views every morning? Well you can, if you rent this sensational 6 bedroom detached Villa with its own private pool, overlooking the beautiful unspoilt Marigot Bay and its marina. The architect who designed "Villa Bo Lanme," which means “home by the sea” in Creole, ensured almost every room in the property overlooks the fabulous view.
"Villa Bo Lanme" (formerly Bay View Villa ownership unchanged), enjoys year round cool breezes, but on still days, there are ceiling fans throughout and air conditioning in all the bedrooms.
There is a vast open plan living area with cool marble floors, including an exceptionally well equipped kitchen, dining and sitting areas, which are furnished to seat up to 12 people. There are 5 spacious double bedrooms, 4 ensuite with raindance showers, and a separate bathroom serves the 5th double bedroom, and the two double sofa beds in the Games room.
The Games room will be a hit with the young at heart who can play X box, table tennis, snooker or table football, whilst the less energetic enjoy the outdoor living experience around the pool. Later the youngsters can retire to the TV or play videos, whilst the adults finish off their evening meal in peace on the veranda, overlooking the bay and the spectacular sunset.
During the day you can stay local. Start with breakfast at the French bakery. Wander round the marina looking at the millionaire yachts. Restock with items from the local shops, banks and minimart. Call in at the office and arrange scuba diving, fishing, sailing, whale watching or a water taxi trip. Relax on the sandy spit, snorkel the reef or perhaps hire a pedalo. Return later to enjoy a meal at a local restaurant or a drink at the bar, watch the sun go down and swop stories with the sailing fraternity.
Alternatively there is a wealth of activities and places to see all over the island, which the local managers will discuss with you on arrival, always knowing that your stunning villa awaits your return at the end of the day, when you can cool off with a swim and a drink, whilst you decide what to do with your evening ahead.
"Villa Bo Lanme" is ideal for honeymooners or couples who want time and space to themselves in privacy, wedding parties, family reunions, business conventions or simply 2 or 3 families wishing to holiday together. Whoever you are, this is somewhere where you can enjoy yourselves without being worried about disturbing the neighbours.

About Chris Beeching
Hello, our names are Chris and Liz. We had a dream to take our young family and live on a Caribbean Island. I was a house builder in the UK, and Liz was a lawyer, so it seemed logical to spend some of our time building what is now our holiday home. We now call it “Villa Bo Lanme” (formerly Bay View Villa ownership unchanged), which means “home by the sea” in Creole, and when you look at the view, you will see why. In the early years the children attended a local school, but as they grew older, we knew we would have to come back to the UK. We get back there as often as we can in the school holidays, as the children still love it, but as we cannot be there all the time now, our beautiful home awaits you to come and enjoy it in the same way as we do. We have been lucky to accumulate a number of properties in the UK which we rent out, so we are well versed in the practice. We are also very fortunate to have Pauline and Cornelius to help look after “Villa Bo Lanme” in our absence. Before they met, Cornelius skippered Charter Yachts all over the world for 30 years, and Pauline was a qualified fitness instructor. Between them they speak English, French, Italian, Spanish and a little German. They live and work in the Bay with their two children, and amongst other things, they manage several other properties, so they are never far away if you need them. They are extremely well organised and professional. They will be there to welcome you on your arrival, show you how the house works, talk to you about things to do and places to see, and attend to any maintenance issues should they occur. Meanwhile we will give you lots of information before you go, and make sure you get to “Villa Bo Lanme” by taxi or car hire without getting lost. Between us we will all look after you, and make sure you have a wonderful time.

Spacious villa with lovely views
We had a fantastic stay at Villa Bo Lanme. The views over the bay are fantastic, the villa is spacious, with a well equipped kitchen, and we enjoyed playing table tennis in the games room.
It's the first place in the Caribbean we have been to and not needed the air conditioning on, which was really nice. All we had to do was open the windows and let the breeze waft through the screening, which stops the mossies coming in.
Chris was extremely helpful and informative before our stay, and Pauline and Cornelius were great during our stay. We went on a private sunset cruise with Cornelius in his boat, which was very enjoyable.
All in all we would highly recommend the villa.
Dream location for retirement celebration.
Villa Bo Lanme is exactly as advertized, only better! Everything is superb! The villa is so spacious, light and airy. The home is in pristine condition with lovely island decor .The kitchen is equipped with everything you could possibly need. We were a family of twelve, eight adults and four children and were very comfortable. The game room was a plus for the children and we all loved the pool area overlooking Marigot Bay. The view is spectacular, we spent a lot of time just watching the activity in the bay. The villa has easy access to the beach, shops and restaurants in Marigot Bay. It’s a very convenient location to tour the island. We rented a van but also used the taxi service. An interesting highlight was our trip to the Zion Lion Farm (Castaway Tours), a Carib Cuisine Workshop on an underdeveloped beach south of Soufriere.
Chris is super, he forwarded so much information and advice prior to our arrival we knew exactly what to expect. He puts a great deal of effort into ensuring guests at Villa Bo Lamne have the best St Lucia experience. From our taxi driver Moses meeting us at the airport, Pauline and Cornelius welcoming us to the villa and Joel our chef for one evening, the staff is all first class.
Our only regret is we did not have enough time there!
Highly recommend this property and hope to return again.
Wonderful Villa with Spectacular Views
This is our third consecutive year renting a villa in Marigot Bay, as well as the third time we have rented on Sea View Avenue. This house is easily our favorite.
The villa is meticulously maintained, and ideally situated to provide spectacular views of the harbor and capture the most consistently cooling breezes of any island home we have rented. No need for air conditioning or fans (although both are available), and moreover, the constant breeze insures a "bug free" environment.
The kitchen is well appointed, with an enormous gas range, micro wave, and huge refrigerator (which provides more than enough crushed or cubed ice) together with spacious dining areas both inside and outside on the deck overlooking the harbor. For those who frequently travel to the islands, and dread the constant need to shop for (and lug around) cases of bottled water the owners have installed a filtration system that entirely eliminates that daily burden.
Finally, the owners, together with their property management team (Pauline and Cornelius), were the most comprehensive and accommodating team for hosting our stay of any property we have rented in the past twenty years. From providing recommendations for car-rentals, to "things to do" to arranging in villa banquets (be sure to have Pauline schedule Chef Joel for at least one "Island banquet" during your stay...the best meal you'll have) they were incredibly responsive, courteous, and always available.
Definitely a five star stay!!

Wonderful house, wonderful view, wonderful host
We stayed here with a group of 8 adults and had a wonderful time. Chris is absolutely fantastic about answering any questions and giving you all the info you need before arriving. The house was immaculate and the view was breathtaking. The only "complaint" we had was that the beds/mattresses were very firm, but that could be chalked up to personal preference. The house is equipped with everything and anything you need and it's a fairly quick, fairly easy walk to the bars, restaurants and shops in the bay. I would HIGHLY recommend staying here!
Fabulous Villa with stunning views of Marigot Bay
The pictures do not do this property enough justice. A beautiful home overlooking Marigot Bay. 5 bedrooms each with their own on suite, great shared spaces, a beautiful patio that runs the back of the house overlooking Marigot Bay, and a fantastic pool.
We stayed for a week over the 4th of July and enjoyed every minute.
The owners provide a phenomenal amount of information on the house, Marigot Bay, and Saint Lucia before arrival. In addition, they maintain a great staff that assist in your stay (a house manager, optional cook, and an optional driver).
Will rent this villa again in the future.
Excellent Villa with an Exceptional Vantage Point
The property is situated beautifully above Marigot Bay - the perfect location from which to do nothing, if you choose, and just enjoy an incredible view from almost any location in the villa. The villa itself is tasteful in design and function. I don't think the pictures on the websites give it proper credit. The beiges and whites contribute to a peaceful and relaxed setting, and the whitewash look on the exposed beams is inspired. And it's hard to put into words just how wonderful it feels to lay at night with a cooling Caribbean breeze freely circulating throughout the bedroom. Air conditioning is available but unnecessary. The beds are firm, which I like. Every appliance is in good working order and the kitchen and cupboards are well furnished with everything you need. This villa also offers a game room, which was a hit with our group of mostly young adults.
Marigot Bay is an excellent location from where to explore St Lucia, but the villa itself is the best place to be. Our most fun was at a small inlet to the south of Marigot Bay and only a short walk from the villa. We had our own beach and BBQ, very good snorkeling, and - for the adventurous - the opportunity to cliff dive from a large rock formation extending over the water. Incredible fun and memories for a lifetime.
One last item worth mentioning. The villa owner and his caretakers for the property are absolutely accommodating and invested in making your stay as enjoyable and carefree as possible.
Marigot Bay has been described as one of the most beautiful bays in the Caribbean. It is visited by yachts everyday because of its safe anchorage and well equipped marina, along with its shops restaurants and bars. The marina has provided many jobs for the locals who therefore appreciate the value of tourists. In the evenings locals, tourists and ex-pats can be found everywhere enjoying each others company, which makes for a happy and safe environment. Marigot Bay is a perfect mix of unspoilt beauty and quality development. There is plenty of parking, and the roads are quiet. There is a taxi rank, and the buses run from the main road. It is recommended to hire a car for a few days of your holiday at least, to give you the freedom to explore and enjoy this wonderful island. Full directions and information regarding car hire and taxis will be given at the time of booking.
