Guestbook comments from the owner

One word. Fabulous!! I have already been composing my review in my mind. Amazing view, spotless, quiet, hot water, air conditioning, wonderful linens, frozen duck in the grocery store (well okay I wondered who would be whipping up duck in their rented apartment). We are still in St Lucia and I wish we were still at you place.

Best Location with the Best View!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here 5 nights during Thanksgiving break in 2017 and we loved every single bit of this apartment - One of the most stunning places I have ever stayed! It is so cozy and comfy and clean and more importantly, it feels homey. Fantastic on the surface yet warm to the heart- Located right by the water front of Marigot Bay, it offers the most amazing view in the region, in fact, the most amazing view of the entire island in my opinion!

We love the feel of waking up every morning to the spectacular bay right outside the window - palm tree fringed sandy beach, sun drenched balcony with birdy chirping melodies, mega yachts and boats coming in and out of the peaceful harbor and soft fluffy clouds reflecting its most beautiful shadows down in the Caribbean water. It is just dreamy and serene - this is pretty much what island vacation is all about - a world away from the city crowds and mundane worries but simply digest and embrace the ocean breeze on this lush green "paradise island" - Marigot Bay really has the best to offer, located on the west coast of St.Lucia which offers great convenience driving north up to Castries, Rodney Bay area and down to the South in Soufriere for Pitons and Volcano and many other famous tourist attractions.

In fact, if not going out on adventurous excursions, staying just inside the Bay area is fun enough already. During the time when we just wanted to relax and chill, we pretty much just went to the Capella resort. Loved their pool and facilities and the complimentary coconut water service is superb. Staffs were very friendly and proximity to various bars grills and restaurants made it even more fun. We were eating out every night, the dinner was a bit pricey but it was so worth it with the vibe and setting. We also took the ferry across the bay for the small sandy beach and had to mention that watching the sun sinking into the Marrigot Bay was also extremely memorable.

All in all, this is the best place to stay in St.Lucia and so glad we got to spend our vacation here! - Fabulous and unforgettable!

One of the Best Values in St.Lucia

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was beautiful! The pictures provided do not do it justice. We enjoyed the beautiful views of Marigot Bay from the balcony every morning before we set out for the day. The french press provided was excellent for coffee snobs (bring your own grinds, good grinds are a rare find in St.Lucia). We enjoyed trying many of the restaurants in the bay, our favorite being the Rum Cave. After dinner, we would return to a Piton (local lager) or a glass of wine on the balcony to top off the day. Only issue we had was with the Wifi, but that was due to a widespread outage. Overall, 10/10 property and an excellent value.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Simon just ruined any other VRBO stay I'll ever have with this unit. Nothing else will compare. It's great! Not fancy, very functional, spacious, everything in good working order, very good wifi, well stocked kitchen with regard to appliances, tableware, etc. The view. The best view possible of Marigot Bay. The sunsets are spectacular from the porch. There's a TV there, but we never turned it on, we didn't have to, we had plenty of entertainment watching the boats coming and going in front of us. Being able to use the pool and facilities at the Capella resort is a plus. Simon was a gem to work with, great communication, and his local representatives Pauline and Cornelius were tremendous. If you go to St Lucia and don't stay here, you're making a huge mistake. We'll be back.

STUNNING LOCATION

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 6 nights in this fantastic condo from 11-17 March.

It's spotlessly clean, spacious, well equipped and beautifully furnished.

The views from the balcony are absolutely stunning and so picturesque, we loved watching the yachts coming in and the locals going about their business every day.

Having the use of the 5* Capella Bay hotel facilities is a bonus and the staff were all very friendly and accommodating.

We also loved going on the beach and having a drink with the locals at Roots bar- Fluffy and Sue run this and are a fantastic cpl they serve great local food and beers all at local prices too.

You must try the Indian restaurant "Masala" below the apartment, the food is first class and delicious.

Doolittles is also great for lunch and cocktails and Rainforest hideaway has a good menu for dinner in the evening - we ate lion fish which is one of the very few restaurants on the island that serves it.

All in all this has to be the perfect Condo in the most amazing perfect location and would absolutely return in a heartbeat.

Absolutely fabulous

  • 5 of 5

We returned today and can honestly say this accommodation is stunning - the position is to die for and most yachts took pictures of the building on entering the port, some yachts were so beautiful and my husband spent a lot of time looking up their history. Back to the apartment everything you could wish for large, spacious and spotless. We had a lovely 10 days here and would recommend it to anyone wanting an interesting holiday and not having to leave your balcony except to top up your Rum and Coke. We had a hire car through Drive a Matic a Jimmy 4 x 4 which was superb.

Loved going into Capella and being treated like Royalty.

In fact loved everything. This was a lovely centre to visit other beaches North and South, including Reduit Beach, Pidgeon Island Beach, the Landings and Windjammer Landing, but my favourite was Sugar Beach. Only had two meals out (big wedding to pay for in June) and the supermarket 10 minutes in the car was reasonably priced and a good stock of everything. One good tip is to have lunch/afternoon meal at the Reef outside the Airport, pretty location and good food. Back to the apartment - excellent.

Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved our stay here. It is clean, comfortable and the location is nice. The marina area is full of life and several good restaurants. It is fun to walk around and look at all the beautiful boats. There is a wonderful Indian restaurant right below the apartment that we ate at three times in one week. There are several other good restaurants around the marina as well. There is also a small grocery store where you can stock up on basics.. you may want to make breakfast at the apartment after you experience the prices for one at the restaurants!

The views from the apartment are amazing, great for watching the sunset! There is a small beach on the other side of the bay, which you can get to by water taxi for 2usd round trip, or eat at the restaurant there and get the boat ride for free. If you want to get to the really nice beaches though you will have to drive. The best beaches we found were 25 min to 1 hour drive from the apartment. If beaches are your priority, you will be spending time the car!

The description says that it has a queen bed but I think it was actually a king bed. We have a king bed at home and a queen always looks super tiny to us. This bed felt like the same size as our king at home. The only thing i didn't like about this apartment was the bathroom. It was pretty small and not great lighting and really no place to rest your toiletries. I still give it five stars though because the pros far outweigh the cons here.
