We are both from the USA and currently live in Washington State. Recently retired as Sr. Director of Engineering and my wife (also retired) was VP of one of the largest credit card companies. We both enjoy sailing and tennis - golf when we find the time. We have two adult children. We have traveled much of the world and did spend 3 years in Hong Kong - amazing how one's perspective changes when living in another country. My wife loves to cook and really should consider opening a restaurant.
Dave purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Dave chose Savannes
We enjoy sailing and came across St. Lucia during one of our trips. We fell in love with the island and knew we wanted our future retirement home here. It took us two years of looking at property all over the island to find this villa. We even looked at bare land to build a home on. On one trip to St. Lucia our agent said that this villa just came on the market that day. We arranged a quick look see and knew this was the one and made an offer that day. We could not be happier and can honestly say, this is the nicest villa in it's price range on the entire island.

Damage and incidentals
You will be responsible for any damage to the rental property caused by you or your party during your stay.
This place is awesome, it is surely a paradise. Our family enjoyed every minute of our stay at this villa. Our communication and response with the property office before and during our stay was exceptional.
A car rental is necessary for a 5 minutes drive to shops and airport to make this place the perfect vacation place.
Breathtaking spot in the sun
I've travelled and worked extensively in the Caribbean and always knew that St. Lucia was one of the gems. But this experience is truly first class, the staff and hospitality that they create is one to cherish. I would like to say a big thank you to Bonnie and her staff for making the stay memorable
Castle on the Sea
What a marvelous home!! So much room all through the house. Incredible view!! Each bedroom has its own French doors to the veranda. Plus the same off the kitchen and living area. How nice! Very comfortable beds. Maid service was great. The breeze coming in off the ocean was wonderful! Kitchen is FULLY equipped or lots of great restaurants close by or have the property manager bring in a private chef for a truly authentic island meal. The pool just across the driveway was ALL ours every day. Very close to the airport, beach with wind surfing lessons and the most fun little bars on the beach. Only a few minutes from the grocery store. Driving on the left side is a "hoot". Roof top star gazing was "out of this world". Can't wait to return!! Sooo relaxing!!
A BEAUTIFUL RETREAT!
we stayed at the castle on th sea for a week and we wish it could have been longer!!! Plans to come back with our family in the near future! The accommodations were excellent,the view amazing, the locals friendly! Sitting on the veranda with the cool breeze while having a meal, looking out at the beautiful Caribbean Sea, is just the most delightful, amazing experience! We rented a car and had and no trouble finding our way around the island! Both a great adventure, and a wonderful relaxing vacation! We hope to return often to The Castle On The Sea!!
The perfect island villa getaway
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!
Kite surfing (minutes from one of the top places in the world to kite surf). Lessons are easily arranged or just enjoy a cold drink as you watch some of the best in the world play at their sport.
