Serenity at Serenity (Barefoot Beach Villa)
Our group had a wonderful week's stay at Barefoot Beach Villa. The house was beautiful and well appointed, but the best part about our trip were the people! Ish, Charlie, Denise and Liza took such good care of us that we stayed in much more than we had originally planned. Charlie met us at the airport and was always available to taxi us to and fro whenever we requested his services. Ish was so gracious to show us his family restaurant which made our St. Lucia experience extra special. Denise and Liza were just the best all the way around! We will definitely come back and hopefully stay in the new beachfront home that's being constructed below the villa.
Beyond all expectations
The house, which is located in a beautiful and serene setting, was stunning. We had high expectations, and Barefoot Villa exceeded them. We loved the open format and the large number of spacious rooms.
The kitchen appliances were modern and there was enough prep space to cook for a crowd. The kitchen opens out onto a huge beautiful deck with a large table and lots of comfortable chairs for relaxing. So, while we cooked and ate our dinners, we had a breathtaking view of the spectacular sunset over the Carribbean.
The view of the ocean was also great from the very cool and refreshing salt water infinity pool. The grounds around the property were great for walking and for seeing native plants and flowers. There are also many outdoor sitting areas, providing for quiet time when needed.
Our housekeepers, Denise and Liza, were warm and friendly and absolutely perfect hosts. From beginning to end, they made sure we had everything we needed. And in addition to taking great case of us, they also shared lots of useful information about the island. We loved that they wanted to get to know a little about us and were willing to share a bit of their personal lives. Denise even brought us a cocoa pod from her tree at home, cut it open, and explained how cocoa was made.
Incidently, since we were a large group, we opted to rent the cottage, as well. But "cottage" doesn't do justice to the additional living space. It's actually a lovely, contemporary, open-air, two story unit complete with two small decks that overlook the ocean.
Ish, who takes care of the infinity pool and who couldn't have been nicer, brought us fresh coconuts from the property and used his expertise to cut them for us, so we had coconut milk for breakfast! He also brought us fish, including the freshest tuna we had ever eaten.
And of course, Richard, the owner, was very welcoming and was available to answer all our questions. He even gave us a ride into town when our gang of six ran out of rum and beer!
It was an easy walk to the beach and to a Sandals all-inclusive resort. We got day passes there one day and we had a blast playing tennis, snorkeling, and of course eating and drinking. There is nothing like a swim-up bar to make one feel decadent.
In all, the attention to detail in both homes and the surrounding landscape, along with the warm welcoming hosts, made for a vacation we didn't want to see end. We loved everything about this rental, and are looking for to returning!
The pictures do not do it justice. Nestled in a forest of a wide variety of flowers and fruit trees (no wonder, the owner is an arborist) that attract a wide range of birds and other creatures, some of which visit regularly to see what they can steal. A good camera is a must to capture it. We had our 1 year old grandson and he had a ball in the pool and meeting a lot of wild life. And all of it just above the beautiful sea.
Thank you Peter for your review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Hope you had a chance to see a Bananaquit in one of the fruit trees :)
We loved our stay at Barefoot Beach Villa!
Barefoot Beach Villa was paradise! The views were awesome!
Glad to see that you enjoyed your stay at the Barefoot Beach House : )

Turn your phones off and book this place now. One of the better places to unplug that i have been. With banana, mango, papaya and coconut trees on property, you don't have to leave to get a taste of the islands. The private pool is amazing and the open air kitchen living room area is hard to get away from. Also, the daily cleaning staff was very friendly and barely noticed they were there.
Thank you for choosing the Barefoot Beach Villa for your stay on the island. We hope to welcome you back soon : )
Our family decided to getaway from winter blues and found this amazing villa to spend our first week of 2018 together, and we could not have found a more perfect house! Always stressful to travel as a large group of 10 which included 2 infants and an active toddler, we were put at ease before even stepping on the plane en route to St. Lucia. We were put in touch with someone who handled provisions delivery and connected us with a fantastic chef who had the whole house smelling fantastic and dinner prepared as soon as we stepped through the doors upon arrival!
Our luck, the owners, Beth and Richard, were there as well who gave us insight about their favorite St. Lucia spots and answered any questions we had during the week, even connecting us to the groundskeeper, Ish, who provided us with fresh seafood so we could cook together as a family one night in a chef's dream kitchen! The pool and deck were perfect for the days we wanted to read and relax, with plenty of sunshine and breeze. The house was kept clean and there were house keepers every day except on Sunday; we all grew to love Liza and Denise! The grounds were beautiful and you are surrounded by lush greenery, but still had an incredible view of the ocean from the house with the always welcome breeze from the sea! We decided not to rent a car and used Big Runner to take us all around the island - shout out to Franklin for taking great care of us!
As a few reviewers have mentioned, there is a rocky beach close by and a 10-15 minute walk to the Sandals La Toc beach, which we did take our kids to. Even though Sandals is an adults only resort, the beaches in St. Lucia are public and we had plenty of space adjacent to the resort grounds to spend an afternoon swimming and sunbathing.
The island is absolutely breathtaking! This house, the owners, and the staff were wonderful and top notch, and are a true reflection of St. Lucian charm. Having gotten back late last night, I am already itching to get back!
It was a pleasure hosting your family vacation. Happy to hear that you enjoyed the villa and island. We look forward to welcoming you back on day :)
Located just off of La Toc Road, just south of the Capital of Castries. The Barefoot Beach Villa is located just up the hillside from the ocean, only minutes walk to a small snorkeling cove. There is also the La Toc beach just a 5 minute ride away. On the La Toc Beach is also the Sandals Resort, where guests can use their services - such as restaurants, water activities, golf, etc. In Castries, there are plenty of shopping, local markets, activities, and restaurants. The Barefoot Beach Villa is also in relation to the famous Coal Pot Restaurant - so you can even hire a professional chef to personally cater to your group in the villa, or have fresh meals delivered right from the restaurant.
