About Greg Skinner

SunWest has grown from a love of the island, St. Lucia. This love affair began in 1992, when stepping off the plane felt like passing through a picture frame into another world. The lushness, stunning beauty, rhythmic sounds and friendly St. Lucian's made a yearly visit a necessity. With a background in Architecture and building, it seemed the natural progression to build in St. Lucia. Each time guests arrive, I feel like I am seeing St. Lucia through their eyes again for the first time. My goal is to make sure that my guests have the personalized type of vacation they have in their mind. If interested, I am here to help our guests customize their vacation to take in, see and experience the beauty of St. Lucia while on island so they will leave feeling that they have had the experience of a lifetime. Please take the time to read my daughter's poem which she composed at 13 years of age, following a vacation in St. Lucia. It explains why we always returned to our island in the sun.

Greg Skinner purchased this villa in 1999

Why Greg Skinner chose St. Lucia

Home Away from Home....

There is a place far from here

where chimes of steel

sing songs, hot rays of sun pour from the sky.

Happy people dance and chant, with no worries or cares,

a place where you can be free.

It is not a normal place to my friends,

To me it is a home away from home.

It is a magical dream to them that they hope will come true.

To me it is where I spend my best years letting my feelings flow.

It is the hot, exotic pictures in magazines and shows to them.

To me it is where my soul can sing and my mind can relax.

It is what they all ask me about….

What is the sea, sand, weather, life like there?'

To me the sea is like a warm cola that has been

shaken, shattering refreshing, salty water

running down my body.

To me the sand is hot and grindy, melting through my toes.

To me the weather is refreshing, steamy but healthy.

To me life is free, no worries, no cares.

It is amazing to them, a dream, a fantasy.

To me, it is my life, my home, where I belong.

If they wish, I will continue to explain this dream,

but no matter how hard I try,

they will not be able to feel my heart pounding

when I speak of my

home away from home.

"We're Home!!"

  • 5 of 5

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!!! The aren't enough words to truly describe how wonderful this villa and island are. It honestly feels like paradise. From the moment you get off the plane feeling the tropical air to the beautiful sights you see along the drive to the villa. The eucoliptos trees were my ultimate favourite not to mention the view from the lookout point where Greg, the owner took us to admire. Upon entering the villa ,as this being our fourth consistent year there we honestly felt like we were home. It is such a relaxed atmoshere with a view one could only dream about. Our highlight every morning was to drink our caribbean coffee on the deck daydreaming for what felt like hours. The pool is so nice to have at the villa as most times we had it to ourselves which was very relaxing.

The villa was very clean and well kept with a housekeeper/cook available upon request. It is also convieniently about two minutes by car to the grocery store and less than five to the beach.

Speaking about the beach, that too is awesome and clean with no one bothering you to buy something.

The restaurants in Rodney bay were out of this world and highly recommendable.

The people on the island are very friendly and we always felt very safe.

This is one place we truly rave about and a definite MUST for all to see!!!

Absolutely Wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

No need to look anywhere else!! We had the best time and Greg, the owner made it happen!! He will bring you to the best places on the island! Whether it's a place to eat, take in a scenic overlook or simply relax in a place you only see in vacation magazines Greg knows where to go! If you're looking to participate in any of the fun filled activities St. Lucia has to offer, Greg knows just where to go!

This is your home away from home! It's so much better than a resort because you have the privacy but yet your in the middle of it all. When you wake up you see the beauty of St Lucia through the wall of windows that are from floor to ceiling right from your bed. Beyond Beautiful!

Greg is absolutely a great guy and has a passion for showing you all the beautiful places and the history of it all! He will guide you around wherever you want to go and will pick you back up when you are ready. He gives you a cell phone so you can stay in contact with him if you need any help. He made our vacation a memorable one that we will never forget! We will be back with our friends and family! He has a few other places that are all together a 1,2,3 and 4 bedroom that can accommodate any size family. You honestly can't beat the price for all the wonderful things it has to offer. Greg will make sure you are in great hands!! His place is so much better than a resort by far!! If you have any questions at all please don't hesitate to call or email him. He will be more than happy to speak with you! All the previous reviews about how wonderful Greg is are so true!

Best Vacation Ever and we will rent from him again for sure!!

Made my vacation a perfect one!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment Greg the owner picked me up at the airport I knew that my vacation was paved with joy. I was traveling alone and had never been to St Lucia. The island is so beautiful and Greg made sure I was well taken care of every step of the way. The villa was perfect and the bed was really comfortable. Greg has a passion for the island and the people and is there if you need anything from pick-ups to advice on how to make your vacation a most rewarding one. The supermarket is really close by and he would make sure I had everything I needed to keep the fridge well stocked. My favorite place was Pigeon Island, the beach is spectacular and the view from the point is divine. Greg took me to almost every inch of the island to explore and you won't be disappointed.

No need to book anywhere else!

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 4 days with Greg and it was fabulous. I agree with all of the reviews above. Greg picked us up at the airport which was wonderful. He took us out for a tour of the area and pointed us in the right direction for whatever it was we wanted to do. The house was very well equipped and very clean.

Thanks Greg for a wonderful time. We would highly recommend a stay here!

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't of asked for a better dream holiday in St Lucia as I wanted to visit The Island to experience the Jazz and Arts Festival. I booked an apartment at Sunwest Villas recommended by a friend and was not disappointed by my final choice.

On Arrival I was welcomed at the airport by Greg holding my name board amongst the crowd. After our brief introduction I knew straight away that I was in good company.

On route to my apartment Greg was a natural conversationalist and historian telling me some interesting facts and history about the island.

I was impressed by my apartment it had a great view over looking the green lush tropical landscape of St Lucia and you could see the Caribbean sea in the distance.

The layout of the room was very spacious and clean with all the amenities & equipment eg:.cable tv, Wireless internet,cooker, cooking utensils,,washing machine, iron and ironing board, fridge, Air conditioning and ceiling fans all the things needed to make my stay more pleasant and not forgetting a double comfy bed.There was also a outdoor swimming pool, perfect for a plunge in the morning and I noticed it was maintained on a regular basis.

Greg also provided me with a top up cellular phone with the local network which was a bonus for me for ringing family and friends around the island at a cheaper local rate.

The service Greg provided was top class 10/10 always checking I was comfortable and if I ever wanted to go anywhere on the island Greg would always be at hand and would always offer to take me around.

I will definetly return to Sunwest Villas as I find the location ideal for easy walking access to the main beach, shops and local restaurants. I've already recommended this accommodation to some of my family and friends if ever they were to visit St Lucia.

Greg= Great Host , Great Location, Great Stay, Great Guy.

Hope to See you soon

Honey and Baby Moon Extravaganza

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic Experience! Sun West Villas offers a great vacation package for all types!

Deciding on a place to vacation and then to lodge can be tough business. This was especially the case for us as we were also in the midst of wedding planning and in the very early stages of baby arrival planning.

We decided on Sun West Villas in St Lucia and did not think about our vacation until the day after our wedding/night before our trip.

Strategically located in one of the best spots in the island SWV offers a great place to take in a sunset by the pool and it acts as a great home base to start your adventures or beach outings (the beach is a quick 10 minute walk (downhill) or a quick 3.5 minute drive (Greg will take you down there and pick you up!))

The first thing Greg offers to do is give you a very quick tour of the island so that you may adjust your vacations plans….or plan your vacation.

Your experience at SWV will be akin to going someplace where you have a local friend – completely the opposite of the all-inclusive experience. With Greg as your host/tour guide extraordinaire you will take in the islands main attractions as well as “off the beaten path” gems such as roadside bakeries, coconut, fish and fruit stands, banana plantations and much more!

Speaking of Greg’s rock star tour guide abilities, at SWV you will experience unmatched customer service and attentiveness but more importantly you will make a great friend.

We highly recommend the cocoa plantation visit - with the arts and crafts shop being another must. Zip Lining was also fantastic, very safe and professionally run as well as suited for a 6.5-month pregnant gal (by the way, Leah keeps calling zip lining “razor wiring” which admittedly sounds like something which might be slightly fun but mostly painful). The Banana plantation tour Greg took us on was another highlight, (he will knock down fresh fruit from the trees if you promise to run quickly afterwards). Another outstanding outing was a Piton’s hike, which involved just the right level of effort given our condition (Horacio happens to be a bit of a wimp) and phenomenally rewarding views.

Greg, thank you for your dedication to making our honeymoon one of the greatest experiences of our lives as well as for sharing your passion for the island with us.
