Beautiful Villas near Rodney Bay!

Overview

About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

Privately and ideally located a short drive away from the Rodney Bay strip, the Rodney Bay Marina, and between 2 of the most beautiful beaches on the island, the villas are near the action but in a peaceful quiet area.

There are a total of ( 4 ) two bedroom villas on the property. Each villa is tastefully decorated with two bedrooms each having an en-suite bathroom. The warm brightly Caribbean coloured painted villas are representative of the rich Caribbean culture. All villas have the same design although each has slightly different décor.

As you approach the villas you are welcomed with beautifully manicured grounds, the villa is nestled among the beautiful palm trees and a range of greenery. Once you enter the villas, you are immediately in the main living area which benefits from an open concept living, dinning, and kitchen areas which have modern cheerful furniture and appliances. Continuing to the back of the villas you will find the bedrooms and en - suite bathrooms. Through the sliding doors in the bedrooms you are immediately in the large balcony perfectly placed for one to watch the sunset on an evening. From the upper balconies you have a spectacular view of the ocean, Rodney Bay Marina, and pigeon island.

This property is good for the elderly or the handicapped as access to the upper villas can be accessed with ease. Having said this, the pool is located on the lower level of the grounds. It is nestled between the green foliage and has pool side furniture for relaxing, or reading a book.

For rentals over 7 days, the villa will be cleaned once per week, just to freshen up the linen.

If you will be flying into the Hewanorra International Airport in St. Lucia, the airport is about an hour and a half drive to Rodney Bay Village and the surrounding areas. We can assist you with booking your airport transfers. We are very honest when we say that the drive from the airport to the villa is not the easiest one. One of the things which makes this beautiful island stand out from the others, is the ability to see a breathtaking view from so many different inclines. Due our hilly terrain, we have may cliffs, peaks, and sharp corners, which if you are not familiar with, can be a bit hair raising. in the beginning. One of our biggest nemesis on the island is the fact that we do not have street names or numbers. You really need to know where you are going to in order to find it. It is a bit challenging to give directions to the villa from the airport when the roads are not signed. We care about your safety and ask that you wait to explore the island at least after you have had a full nights rest. Don’t try to do it as soon as you land here. You have been on the go for hours prior to arriving, may have not slept at all the night before preparing for your travels. Depending on where you are coming from, you may have been traveling for 12 hours or more, you are exhausted by the time you arrive here. To avoid any incidents, we suggest that you take the option of having us organize your transfer for you. When you get to the villa, and you have rested, with fresh eyes in the morning, you can begin the adventure!

If you insist on driving yourselves, I ask that you allow us to assist you with booking the vehicle rental. We can have the vehicle available to you at the airport when you arrive, or at the villa when you get here if you choose. When it comes to choice about companies to rent the vehicle from, you need to be careful. As you can imagine, we do tremendous amount of business in this industry and have forged relationships with partners who trust and will treat our guests to our standards. We know the standard of vehicles which our partners offer, and the support service in case there are issues. Looking for the cheapest option, or perhaps thinking that it is better stick with a name that you know may seem like the way to go, however, things do not necessarily work the same over here. To be clear, we do not get kickbacks from our rental car partners, and our only interest is that you are taken care of effectively. This past Christmas season was a testament to what we speak of. Guests who opted to make their own arrangements elsewhere were without vehicles for their entire vacation as the reservations had been cancelled and were only told when they arrived on the island. November – March is the busiest time on the island, all vehicles were sold out for the Christmas holidays. Now that they were on island, looking for a rental proofed fruitless due to the fact that they were booking last minute. It eventually cost the guests more money to go out and about taking taxis everywhere, and of course ruined their vacations. If you have questions about the process, please feel free to ask.

Imagine having a sunset massage on the balcony, or get a Therapeutic or Restorative Acupuncture session. If you are a Yoga lover or have never tried yoga before, you can have a private yoga class with Lenka. (These three services are at an additional fee) Let us know ahead and we can arrange it before you arrive.

Finally, we are here to see to it that you have a fantastic holiday. We can pre stock your kitchen cupboards ahead so when you get here you can get to the business of relaxing! We can have a cook come in who can definitely open your taste buds with some of the most delicious local dishes ( this at an additional fee). Ask us about this service if you are interested.

Each villa can accommodate 4 people comfortably. However, one of the lower villas has a sofa bed and can accommodate a party of up to five people. The rates for the lower villas begin at $160.00US per night for 2 people. (the lower villas have a partial view of the ocean and have direct access to the pool) The upper villa rates begin at $200.00US per night for the first 2 people. ( The upper villas have the best ocean views as they are higher above the ground). Please contact us to verify pricing and availability. Let us know which villa/villas you are interested in booking.

Groups are welcome as we are able to offer a group rate.

Excellent Villa in a quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This property is in a beautiful quiet neighborhood overlooking the Rodney Bay Marina area. We stayed in one of the four 2 bedroom units available. The Villas are beautiful with all the comforts of home, and impeccably clean.

A great extra of Marina Haven is they offer free airport transportation both your arrival and departure. That's a hour and a half ride each way for absolutely free! We chose to tip our driver however received no pressure to do so. The Villa owner Ben's main business is car rentals and they also will negotiate a rental for you and deliver the car directly to the Villa for no extra charge!

Shops, restaurants and grocery stores in both Rodney bay and the Marina are a 15-20 min walk in daylight hours. The hill upon returning is very steep, but a good workout. During the evening it's a 5-10 min drive down the hill for dinner.

I could go on and on. I think this property is truly a gem.

A Home Away from Home; A Haven Indeed

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Marina Haven for six nights and our stay was (in the words of our children) AWESOME! It was truly our "home away from home." The property is well kept and provides a wonderful balcony view of the Rodney Bay Marina, especially from the top villas; we simply loved our villa, the Coral Cove. In addition to the lovely decor, the villa consists of two bedrooms; each with its private bathroom, an open concept living and dining area plus kitchen. It was cozy yet provided ample space for our family of five. The villa was very clean and had all the modern amenities one would need to enjoy a vacation away from home. We enjoyed the pool also; the water temperature was always just right.

For those who do not enjoy walking or are not used to doing so, we recommend a vehicle since the villas are located on a hilltop and the climb may prove challenging to some; however, we did not mind the daily exercise since it was just about 7 minutes walk to the main road where we were able to catch a bus. Though our children complained a bit on the climb back up to the villas, they most times beat us to the top! The location of the villas is ideal since it is close to the Rodney Bay Marina, and Rodney Bay Strip where you have easy access to shopping, food, beaches and fun. There is also the GLACE supermarket where we were able to shop for groceries. We were able to get to Pigeon Island by taking the bus , then walking the rest of the way (that walk was a much longer one than the one from the villas to the bus stop).

We highly commend Janine, the property manager, for her excellent customer service. She is very warm and had great suggestions on things to do to make our stay more enjoyable. We also thank Shada, the groundsman for his help during our stay. We would love to return to Marina Haven again and will certainly recommend this property to friends and family.

awesome accomadations

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the villa's for 2 weeks in February, was most relaxing with magnificent view of Rodney Bay and the Marina. Villa's were clean, spacious and well equipped. Grounds and pool well maintained, Janine was very helpful and a wealth of information. she always made sure that all our needs were met.Abundance of excellent restaurants in Rodney Bay. Would recommend a car since its quite a climb up the hill to the villas. The only set back with the villa's was the lack of or sometimes no water pressure in their water system. Would definitely recommend these to other people.

What a way to celebrate a retirement:-)

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here with two of our closest friends after spending a week in Marigot Bay. Whilst in Marigot we had a hire car and toyed with the idea of giving the car back for our week in Rodney Bay at Marina Haven. We are so glad we kept it. Marina Haven definitely needs a car to reach it as it up a very steep and winding hill and is about a 5-10 minute drive from Reduit Beach. Keeping the car also meant we were able to visit such great places as Cotton Beach and Pigeon Island. Marina Haven has everything that you'll need for a fabulous stay in the area. The two rooms - both double in our apartment - open onto the same balcony and it was great to out at night watching the sun go down. It has all the amenities you need and more. Janine's (the owner) touch of offering the use of a PAYG mobile/cell phone was great and it meant we could make local calls (such as calling a cab) without worrying about the cost. Both rooms had air-con and each four poster bed was massive - great for me as I am six-foot six and even I only just reached the end of the bed, at full stretch - bliss.

Thanks Janine - we'll be back.

beautiful Villa beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

What a relaxing and lovely vacation! My wife and I stayed here and Janine was the best. The villa was fantastic and so comfortable. The views are fabulous and we enjoyed looking at the lights and comings and goings of the boats in the marina. We walked to the Marina and would grab a taxi from there which was very easy and took only about ten minutes. The walk up was a bit strenuous but not impossible by any means and helped keep all the calories from the delicious meals from sticking too badly. Janine had all of the information needed and gave spot on recommendations. We highly recommend this beautiful villa for anyone coming to Rodney Bay!

The marina has lots of great food choices from ice cream to dining. Some of our favs were the pineapple ginger martinis at the restaurant above Elena's Pizza; the "traditional rum punch" on the marina at Cafe Ole' for sunset watching; Sushi at the marina; the Landing's Restaurant for pizza and salad with shrimp; and Auntie Jane's chicken at Redouit Beach. The best Roti we had was in town by the market place at a local restaurant called Kimlins but the roti at Pigeon Island was excellent too. The grilled fish at the Naked Fisherman was excellent. It was just a great vacation all around and we have already recommended it to our friends here at home!
