About Lisa Jarvis

We fell in love with Saint Lucia on our first visit. Since building our vacation home in Marigot Bay we have met many wonderful new friends and some we feel are more like family. The landscape is mountainous and lush with vegetation, the bay is filled with luxurious yachts of all sizes but this is in stark contrast to the daily struggles of many local families which is why we started a US nonprofit organization called Irie Kids, Inc. Profits from our rentals help fund programs for underprivileged children in our community. Contact us or visit our website to learn more:

Perfect apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Hibiscus apartment at Villa Papillon and it was perfect for the two of us. The rooms stayed cool even in the humidity of August and we always felt like we were in a private oasis. The surrounding trees, plants, and vegetation provide enough coverage that you don't feel like you're on open display on this hillside villa. We had the most relaxing vacation we've ever had and are dreaming of when we can return. A quick walk to the restaurants and market down by the bay make it easy to find food and drinks. And there's no lack of hospitality from the local people. Everyone was kind and helpful when we wanted to explore the island or try some of the facilities in the area. If you're looking for a party spot, this is not it. You'll want to go north to Rodney Bay. If you're looking for peace and tranquility, this is the area for you.

Absolutely Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures and write up do not do this place justice -- the property, accommodations, views, and staff were outstanding! We were thrilled with our stay at the villa in this amazing location. Everything you could want or need was right there and within walking distance. We had the opportunity to visit other cities on the island and felt Marigot Bay was the best of the best. You will not be disappointed with this gem!

April 8-15, 2017 - Amazing location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have recently returned from our vacation in St. Lucia at Villa Papillon. We stayed in the one bedroom (Hibiscus) apartment and were simply amazed with its location and the beautiful property. Walking out our door every day we were greeted with tropical foliage and fresh lemons and limes together with exceptional weather. We were amazed by the amenities provided and the staff that was on hand were incredibly helpful and friendly throughout our stay. Kudos goes to all the staff at Villa Papillon. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts goes to Kim, William, Cyrus and Murphy. A job well done and we miss you already. To Cyrus, our dear friend now and personal taxi service, a huge thank you from Greg (Captain) and Kathy (Boss). We do not hesitate in recommending this beautiful property and will be very happy to return back in the future. Lisa, your property is gorgeous and thank you for allowing us to stay and for making our "second honeymoon" so special.

Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The location of the apartment was perfect - centrally located to visit all parts of the island. Off-street parking was also a plus. The size of the apartment worked great for just the two of us and we really enjoyed the stars from the upper deck in the evenings. The nearby beach within walking distance was our favorite beach on the entire island. We had a wonderful time.

Great Apartment - Wonderfully Designed!

  • 4 of 5

What a lovely villa this is in the middle of Marigot Bay. Apartment has beautiful tile, great kitchen and bathroom, comfortable bed, good A/C when you need it - I only turned on when going to sleep. Patio area has comfortable lounge chairs/table to eat outside and lay down to rest after a snorkeling experience. I did not see great coral while at Anse Chastanet, Anse Cochon and Pigeon Island/Reduit Beach, but did see some cool groups of fish with a little coral. I actually think some of the smaller bays have better snorkeling but you need a guide to tell you where to go. I used Cyrus who Lisa can refer you to for all my taxi drive needs. I also went with him on excursion to Diamond Botanical Gardens, the drive thru Volcano & Sulphur Springs and the Tet Paul Nature Trail and he drove the Horrible Road that takes you to Anse Chastenet. This Island is POOR, please tip all guides well when you go to see these wonderful venues. Honestly Cyrus made the trip so much easier and enjoyable due to his knowledge of the island, various areas and restaurants and he is one reason I have given this high review. He is so very helpful and honest, was always prompt, brought me a towel when I had forgot mine at the apartment. It is always great when you take a trip and meet extraordinary people!! All the places we went he knows the different guides that are good and referred our group, the man at Diamond Botanical Gardens was so knowledgeable about plants (Which I Love) I want to go back for another tour! The volcano is fascinating and the guides we had were again knowledgeable. Thank you Lisa for recommending Cyrus and your apartment manager Kim! I hope to return to this island this winter and will stay at the apartment again and look forward to seeing Cyrus again! What a gem!

The island is expensive for food and cab fare since the roads are mountainous and curvy. I would not ever try to rent a car on this island. Take US dollars since the EU currency is higher prices. Cash works better than credit card for many places. And if you can shove some dog and cat food in your luggage they do have an overpopulation issue. SO please share your wealth with others not so fortunate for me that includes the four legged kind. Next time I may need to look up some of the local vets. This island is tropical but I never had a bug bite the whole time I was there. A beautiful and enchanting island everyone should visit! Thank you again Cyrus and Lisa!

We enjoyed our stay. Kim was very helpful and would routinely check in to see how we were doing. Several restaurants and a small grocery store within walking distance.
