About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

LA ROSE APARTMENT is the premiere spacious and luxurious one bedroom apartment located within the newly built BAYSIDE VILLA ST. LUCIA - a private property offering three apartments (L'IXORA, LA MARGUERITE and LA ROSE Apartments), in a quiet residential area located on the outskirts of Castries City, St. Lucia and perched 145 ft above the Caribbean Sea on the La Toc hillside.

LA ROSE Rates are as follows:

HIGH SEASON (Dec 01-May 15) - $95/night for 5+ nights

LOW SEASON (May 16-Nov 30) - $85/night for 5+ nights

MINIMUM STAY: 4 nights

(rates are subject to change without notice)

NOTE: Tax & Service Charge Included

CHECK-IN: 4:00pm ; CHECK-OUT: 11:00 noon

LA ROSE APARTMENT is surrounded by rich natural vegetation, and boasts a panoramic view of the tranquil Castries City Bay, Vigie Peninsula, Vigie Lighthouse, George Charles Airport (SLU), Vigie Cove Marina, Point Seraphine Duty Free Shopping Complex & Cruise Ship Terminal and Castries City; as well as a hint of the island’s breathtaking northern region from Choc Bay to Gros Islet, visible just beyond the picturesque Vigie Peninsula.

The elegant fully furnished self catering LA ROSE APARTMENT is engulfed by all that guests would require for an enjoyable stay. You are within walking distance (½ mi) from the sun-drenched white sand La Toc Beach and it's fun water sports; a beautiful undulating 9 hole Golf Course manicured to perfection; and the Redland Spa featuring its 'Rub-A-Dub-Dub Two In A Tub' full body massage special. Also, the public transportation “bus stop” is but a one minute walk away from the apartment.

The Castries Bay area is home to many delightful restaurants and bars, which are located either on the shoreline of the Vigie Cove (3 mi drive) or downtown central Castries (2 mi drive).

Castries City, Rodney Bay Village (6 mi drive north) and Gros Islet Town (6.5 mi drive north), with their many exquisite restaurants, bars and night life traditionally beckons all. However, the local flavors emerging from the “Fish Fry Festival” in Anse La Ray Village (6.6 mi drive south), as well as the restaurants and marina night life at Marigot Bay (4.5 mi drive south) cannot be out done and eagerly awaits you.

If shopping is your forte, Castries City is your place. The shops in central Castries, and in the newly built Blue Coral Mall, offer everything you can possibly need at very attractive prices. However, if you fancy duty free shopping this can be achieved within La Place Carenage Duty Free Shopping Mall in central Castries, and at the Point Seraphine Duty Free Shopping Complex - a 3 minute ferry ride from La Place Carenage to the opposite side of the Castries Bay.

LA ROSE APARTMENT, with its private balcony entrance, provides guests with independence, privacy, relaxation and security. The apartment is designed to house two adults with a maximum of two children up to 12 years. Older children or larger groups may require an addition apartment on property. Note, our hillside location may not be suitable for guests with walking challenges.

After your airport pickup the chauffeur will stop at a supermarket / convenience store, allowing you to “stock up” with supplies for your vacation. Otherwise simply e-mail the shopping list at least 48 hrs before your arrival. Your room will be charged with your pre-arrival purchase.

It is your vacation and we are equipped to make it the most enjoyable and memorable holiday you have ever experienced. Your wedding, car rental, deep sea fishing, taxi tour to Soufriere Sulphur Springs and Piton Mountain Peaks (13 mi drive), rainforest sky rides, helicopter tours, morning jogs with the property owners, etc., are all easily arranged. You request it, we will provide it ....... guaranteed!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

An ejoyable stay! Very central. Everything was around us.

What a fantastic view from the apartment balcony. We spent hours on the balcony daily to see the vessels roll in and out.

We took a ferry accross the bay to a restaurant at Vigie Cove. Very romantic.

La Toc beach is beautiful!

John and Shirley were always very helpful. Excellent hosts!

This is a vacation destination we highly recomend to everyone. Will be back next year!

La Rose Apartment is WONDERFUL- We love it and you will too!

  • 5 of 5

In the year of 2013 we stayed for two weeks in the La Rose Apartment. The pictures are true to what you see and to what you get when you enter the apartment. There is free WiFi, a cell phone with minutes already on it. The owners offer help to just about everything. They can arrange for a rental car to be brought directly to the apartment or their driver, Anthony will take you just about anywhere you want to go, but for a fee of course. Anthony is very professional and looks the part of a professional. Arrangements can be made though the owners of the Apartment, John and Shirley to be waiting at the airport when you arrive. The drive to the apartment is lovely and the stops at the bread stand and the grocery store is very good. Locals are very nice and friendly and they take American Dollars and of course there are banks and the lime phone store where you can add minutes to your apartment cell phone. But, to see the island, you really need to rent a car, just be careful and driving in the the left side of the road. There are many different beaches which are all very nice, but we found the Marigot Bay beach to be small, clean, free of peddlers, groomed daily and beach chairs can be rented. You will love this beach and is not to be missed. It is a safe harbor with calm water. Rodney Bay Beach has lots of Peddlers and is is hot there, where as Marigot Bay Beach has tall king palms for shade, a small food and beer stand and it will call you back there each day. Getting back to the apartment, there is a laundry room in the apartment, a comfortable bed, nice kitchen appliances and everything you need to make your stay one to be remembered. BUT I do want to warn you, the view will keep you up at night for the twinkling lights of the Bay of La Toc and Castries is magnificent. Castries, being the capitol city, always has ships coming and going as well as cruise ships that pass directly in front of the apartment and there is nothing to block your view. You will also enjoy sitting on the covered porch watching the ships and the brief rain showers pass by. And, of course the apartment has nice air conditioning, which will keep you comfy. Having a nice drink on the porch or just relax watching TV is nice at the end of the day. We ate in most all the time and only ate out a few times. Be sure to ask locals where they eat for the food is really good and not made for tourists. We will be returning to the La Rose again this year and think of it as "home".We love this place

Best of Everything-This apartment has it ALL-including views

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed two wonderful weeks in the La Rose Apartment at BaySIde Villas and we are now planning a trip back. The views were beyond pretty-they kept me up nights looking out the windows. Ships come directly in front of the apartment which is located on the hillside and handy to everything. Easy drive to town, to the grocery and to everything, even has granite counter tops and the relaxing apartment at the end of the day-ahhhhhh-the nice A/C and restful porch. the laundry was a plus, as was the Wireless internet and the computer table-perfect! This beautiful apartment is so relaxing and comfortable, we just enjoyed it so much and having breakfast on the porch was nice as well, not to mention the afternoon sodas and Piton Beer my husband enjoyed. I loved the Coca Colas-delicious as well as the sweet bananas we bought each day along the roadside stands or in the grocery store. We did two tours and I do recommend them: The Segway Tour and the Boat Trip to the Pitons on the South End of the Island. Just being on the water was fabulous, but the view of the Piton Peaks was breathtaking! I recommend that you drive there for a day as well. Anthony, the trusted driver of John and Shirley picked us up at the airport, stopped at a wonerful bread stand along the way and the at the grocery store. It was a nice ride and Anthony was very professional and dress professional. This was on a Thursday and the next morning John the apartment owner took us for a ride around part of the island and to the grocery store again. Anthony too us to the Jump Up, Street Party in Gros Islet on Friday nigtht, but that is one thing you can miss for there were more non Islanders there than those who live on the Island, the food was expensive, there were rum and drink stands, but the music was loud. It was nothing like I had expected-just tourists walking up and down the street drinking too much. We left early. Saturday morning John arranged for a rental car to be brought to us at the apartment and our Vacation turned into a great trip and big adventure for once we got the car, we were gone somewhere every day almost for two weeks. There are many things to see and do on the Island and the beaches are all different. We liked the quietness of Beautiful Marigot Bay Beach the best, small with packed groomed sand, beach lounge chairs for a small fee and just nice.I want to say THANK YOU to our hosts, John and Shirley for all the help you gave us to make our stay wonderful.

EXTRA NICE Bayside Villa Apartment with views that will keep you looking out the windows

  • 5 of 5

The La Rose apartment is beautiful at Bay Side Villas. It was our home for two weeks and will be again in 2014 for we are going back. The owners, John and Shirley are very helpful and they make sure your stay is going well. They live on the property. They have a trusted driver who will pick you up at the airport, make a couple of stops on the way to the apartment, including a grocery store. John can arrange for a rental car to be brought directly to you at the apartment-we recommend a car. This is beautiful and you don't want to miss anything. Guests are given a cell phone to use and it already has minutes on it. We made use of this feature and then added more minutes later.The views from the apartment are magnificent of the Castries Harbor/city and the northwest coastline. This apartment was exactly what we were looking for: an apartment in Castries on the hill/mountain side(Morne Fortune) with unobstructed views. The view out the kitchen and front windows of the bays and harbor where all the cruise ships pass directly in front of the apartments are magnificent. We stayed in a one bedroom which had two TV's with cable that enabled us not to miss out on American football games, WiFi, two A/C units, a computer table, a beautiful sofa(I think it makes into a bed ), nice kitchen with granite counter tops, table and chairs, stove, refrigerator, deep kitchen sink, washing machine, and a wall safe that you set your own combination. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to cook with-restaurants are very expensive. The grocery stores are handy- IGA stores have everything you want, just like back home, except many items you won't find back home, like Barons's Brand of Banana Ketchup, which is delicious-put it on everything. We really enjoyed eating in the apartment, but we did eat out two times. The apartment was nice to come back to each day, get a bite to eat, watch the harbor activties from the front porch while relaxing in the lounge chairs and sipping an ice cold Piton beer. Most days the island of Martinique is visible. The views kept me up late looking out the windows at the lights of the city. This is a safe place to stay and you will enjoy staying here at a reasonable rate. Don't miss Marigot Bay, as short drive to the south. Just say hello to Reds,the dog, but don't pet him. He is sweet and doesn't bark, but the owners don't want him spoiled. We highly recommend BaySideVillas as a wonderful place to stay while vacationing in Saint Lucia.

Beautiful Bayside - Home away from Home

  • 4 of 5

Bayside Villa is certainly a home away from home. Everything that you need for the independent family who wish to cater to their own needs is provided. The view is awesome and the location to Castries and Rodney Bay is great. John and Shirley are excellent hosts. My family which included my husband and two children certainly enjoy our every moment in St Lucia.

It was great coming back to the apartment after a hectic day and having the enviornment where we could have rested for another hectic day to follow. Will certainly recommend Bayside to visiting friends and family to this beautiful island of St. Lucia. Thank you John and Shirley on behalf of Victor, Matthew and Joshua. Kathy

Awesome stay

  • 5 of 5

We found our entire stay in St. Lucia exceptional-can't say enough! We found this property exactly as it was described and John and Shirley to be the perfect hosts who bent over backwards to take care of us. The location was perfect for us as we were interested in soaking up the culture rather than doing the resort thing. The market was a great source for authentic Creole food and and was a 20 min walk down the hill and a 60 cent bus ride back up. A beautiful beach is just down the hill the other direction and in July when we went was nearly empty. The locals are charming and polite and we felt quite safe. If you like walking there are plenty of sites right around Castries and other attractions are only a 20 min bus or taxi ride away. We highly recommend the Fri night 'Jump up' in Gros Islet, the ziplining tours and catamaran tours to Soufriere packed with activities. We will be recommending this property on to friends and are looking forward to our next visit to this beautiful friendly gem of an island.j

Owner's Response: Ladies, you two did not "discover" St. Lucia. Instead, you "conquered" it!!!! You left no stone unturned in your pursuit to experience all that St. Lucia has to offer within the time you had available, accomplishing this feat by walking, using local buses, and where necessary taxi. You departed St. Lucia after having experienced the "pulse of the people", leaving and indelible mark on all of us which we cherish. We all can't wait for our next encounter with the both of you. Thank you!!!!

Nice, but......

  • 4 of 5

Very nice apartment. Very nice view. Very nice owner.

Very barky dogs. We were awakened every night by the owner's dogs barking--and I wear ear plugs to bed because of my wife's snoring! 3:30 AM, 5 AM, 6 AM, you name it. They seem to hang out by the La Rosa end of the building where we were staying, so if you were at the other end of the building, it might not be a problem. I am very surprised this hasn't been mentioned, except probably most people don't want to say anything bad because the owners are nice people. But we wouldn't go back. I'm sure there are quieter places. BTW, we love dogs and own a black lab.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us. It was a pleasure interacting with you during your stay to learn about your underwater vacation experiences. It's unfortunate your omitted to mention the "barky dogs" during those conversations, allowing me to deal with it instantly. Nevertheless, take comfort in knowing that as a result of your feedback we took steps to immediately addressed this. Thanks also for awakening within me a desire take up scuba diving again. Like yourselves, many persons with an interest in this sport, choose our property. I now want to be able to speak to them, from experience, about the beauty of our island above and below the "waterline". Do come again David because a complementary stay awaits you in the soon to be commissioned LA VUE Apartment (available from October 2013).
