About Owner - Bill and Loretta
We've been married for over 20 years, and just sent our youngest child off to college. We both have stressful full-time jobs as engineers in the energy industry, and we have to fight the traffic of a big city every day. We're getting close to retirement, so we started looking for a place to retire a few years ago, and decided that St Lucia was the only choice after visiting multiple times. We grew up in the Midwest, and never, ever dreamt that we'd retire in the Caribbean! But we love St Lucia so much, we decided to buy our retirement home a few years early, and share our home, so that you can experience the joy of spending time in St Lucia, too.
Why Owner - Bill and Loretta chose Soufriere
We purchased Villa Grand Piton as our vacation/retirement home. We knew it was the right place for us the moment we stepped out of the car - the view of the Pitons stopped us in our tracks and we just stood there, awestruck, for a few minutes. Then we picked our jaws up off the ground, walked into the house, and saw how spacious, light and airy it was, and instantly knew this was the only place for us. After spending our first evening there, listening to the tree frogs and the breeze rustling the leaves, we could not imagine any other place that we could call home. We hope you find it as magical and restorative as we do.
What makes this Villa unique
We started vacationing in St Lucia over 10 years ago, and the beauty of the island, the weather, and the friendliness of the people convinced us we had to spend as much time as possible in St Lucia. We've visited much of the Caribbean, and we've never found any other place where the people are as genuinely warm and caring as in St Lucia. St. Lucia is a wonderful getaway whether you are looking for romance, rejuvenation or exciting activities. Palm-fringed beaches, unspoiled rainforests and the majestic Piton Mountains make up the gorgeous landscape of Saint Lucia. Natural waterfalls, breath-taking views, friendly locals and authentic culture are sure to impress even the most cultured traveler. St. Lucia has some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. Among the natural beauty of the island are ancient fortresses, fishing villages and gracious town squares waiting to be discovered. You can hike, bird watch and explore the natural attractions of St. Lucia or you can take part in many of the activities on land, water or air from horseback riding to SCUBA diving to helicopter rides.

Villa Grand Piton
Terrific staff and unbelievable view. Great diving and great weather. ATV tour, sunset cruise, daylong boat tour of the island, mountain climbing, beach time and happy hour all there for you.
Our family had a wonderful time at the Villa Grand Piton. The Villa is very spacious and well-equipped. The view is absolutely gorgeous. My family loved having meals in the gazebo, especially when the birds came to visit everyday. Relaxing in the pool at the end of an adventurous day was one of our favorite pastimes. We highly recommend hiring Junior’s car service. They were very helpful in arranging activities and they were very accommodating. Doxie was a wonderful cook and very knowledgeable. We have rented many villas from home away in the past, but we have never experienced such a well- organized host as Lorretta. All of her information was accurate, and her response time to questions was better than high end resorts.
Thank you, Marie, for choosing our home and your kind words! Our team works very hard to help you have a great vacation, and I'm happy we could help you do so.
The gazebo is one of our favorite places, too - such great views and cute visitors. The Bananaquits with their yellow bellies are particularly adorable!
We hope to see you again soon.

Relaxing family vacation
Amazing property with breathtaking views. From the first communication with Loretta I knew we were in good hands. She was quick to respond to my questions with helpful advise. We felt so at home with Doxie, John and Kerryus each day. The pictures don’t do the view justice. It is amazing. Doxie’s rum punch is the best and she had fresh mangos every day. Kerryus roasted cashews fresh off the tree. And Billy took care of getting us anywhere we needed to go. If you are thinking about renting a car, don’t. The road is not for the faint of heart. Junior and Billy know what they are doing and do more than just get you where you need to be. They are guide, translator, concierge, and don’t-hassle-my-guests sentry all in one. Great week. Best vacation!
Corrie - It's wonderful to hear that you had a great time! You are right - Junior and Billy are much more than just a person that drives you around in their vehicle - they work hard (like the rest of our team) to be sure you have a great vacation.
We hope to see you again soon!

Our trip to St. Lucia came about after other plans back in the states fell through, and Villa Grand Piton cemented our desire to travel to the island after reading about the Villa, its reviews, and looking at the photos time and again. We cannot say enough about this place, the environment we called home for a week, and the staff. Doxie’s meals were incredible, Junior and Billy entertained and advised us about excursions while driving us around the island, and Kerryus picked cashews off the tree and roasted them for us! Amazing.
The peacefulness of Villa Grand Piton is beyond words. The wildlife sounds will melt away any tension that you might bring with you, and the birds will literally eat out of your hands. St. Lucia should be a vacation destination for those who wish to get away, and Villa Grand Piton is the benchmark for a perfect vacation. Great Villa, wonderful people, and should you elect to dine out a couple nights as we did, two amazing restaurants nearby in Boucan and Dasheene. Just go there and be amazed.
Gary - I see you fell under the spell of St Lucia like we did! Our blood pressure drops the moment we arrive and only goes back up when we remember we have to leave.....
We enjoyed having you as our guests and hope we'll get the chance to see you again soon.

The villa is outstanding! The staff is outstanding! The drivers are outstanding! The breeze, the view.......outstanding! The owners information and communication is outstanding! I really can't provide a better review than the reviews previously listed. We are a family of 5. We have 3 kids, ages 15, 13 and 10. Junior, Billy, Doxie and Kerryus are exceptional. We had a wonderful time and would love to go back to Soufriere and Villa Grand Piton. We lived in China for 4 years and did a lot of travel. We all voted this Villa, staff and St. Lucia at the very top. Junior checked in with us each morning to arrange a plan. We really enjoyed everything he suggested. He also arranged a boat day with Mario with Sugar Beach Charters that was outstanding! He and Billy were excellent drivers. Doxie is a wonderful cook! The Roti and punch on arrival was outstanding as well as the 2 other meals she cooked. Kerryus showed my daughter and I around the outside of the property- cashew trees, mango, coffee..... We enjoyed that a lot while others were napping! John was there to help us if needed. We were so relaxed and in awe of the beauty. It was a fantastic vacation! The owners do a fantastic job with information and communication!
I know you had high expectations of your trip before you arrived, and we're so pleased you were not disappointed!
We hope you come back sometime when the mangoes are ripe (or the grapefruit, or the cashews, or the coffee....). We hope to have the honor of seeing you again soon.
