The property was even better than pictured. Clean, lovely, comfortable. We didn’t anticipate how unwalkable the area is due to mountains and narrow winding roads. However property manager arranged a driving service which was very attentive and responsive. The cost was slightly higher than car rental for the week, and much easier.
Incredible Villa with Superb Views
Loved everything about this villa and the team that help run it. Communication with Leon has been great from the moment we booked. David the villa manager and his team helped us get around and gave us plenty of information on what to do, where to go and eat etc.
The view is simply incredible and all rooms lead out on to the balcony facing the Pitons, the smallest Piton being closest. We were absolutely blown away by the view and the pictures do not do enough justice! Recommend a hike up Gros Piton which looks daunting but ok to do at 7am when it is cooler.
We spent most of our time eating in Soufriere as it was a 5 minute drive from the villa ($20EC in a taxi for 4 adults). We walked it in 35 minutes as it is a steep yet beautiful road to go down. Highly recommend Fedo’s, Petit Peak and Sea View Creole Restaurant for lunch. Hummingbird Restaurant was nice but overpriced for being the beach side of the bridge. We went to Anse Chastanet for the day and ate lunch at he beach restaurant. This is the location of Jade Mountain where you pay $11US for snorkelling which was great! Anse Chastenet is close to the villa but a rough road to go on so recommend a water taxi. We paid $80EC each way. The taxi is the same price but a really rough road and taxi drivers are reluctant at to take people there. Marigot Bay we drove to which was also stunning and a short drive from the villa as was Anse De La Raye.
Recommend hiring a 4x4 as you will struggle getting around otherwise and spend a fortune on cabs. You can see the sulphur springs from the villa which is another must do as well. The tour which is a combined cost of $30EC but transport is on top. We also did the Toraille waterfall which was beautiful yet cold so go to the one by Sugar Beach. Sugar Beach was another great day out. Pay $50US entry in to the resort and they credit this back to you to spend at the restaurant on the beach which was incredible. You can snorkel at the bottom on the Petit Piton for $10US. Take towels to sit on unless you want to pay $50US to hire a beach lounger for the day. There are free chairs the other side of the beach but slightly lesser unpleasant atmosphere with the local husslers hanging around you.
This is somewhere we’d love to come back and stay especially as the hospitality was great. The villa can also organise catering for an extra charge which we would have taken advantage of but spent so much time exploring and eating out.
10/10 location and accommodation.
We loved the house inside and outside, spacious and nicely designed view of the Pitons is AMAZING!
From the beginning our experience with our host was amazing. Leon was very easy to communicate with and answered any questions my fiancé or I had about the house, property, and surrounding area of Soufriere. He really guided us in the right direction. All of the people who watched the property and looked over us and helped us out with a car rental, boat charter, hiking guide etc. were amazing people! They were all very warm and welcoming right from our first meeting and throughout our entire trip. We had an amazing time in Soufriere and Rainbow Heights and now call the people who Leon directed us to or had take care of the property as our friends now. It was an absolutely SURREAL stay in Rainbow Heights/Soufriere! I proposed on top of the Gros Piton after hiking the Petit and the Gros in the same day with my fiancé. Leon heard about this through our mutual friends and went out of his way to set up an engagement dinner for my fiancé and I at Orlando’s. I really can’t thank Leon enough for his kindness and for setting us up with such a beautiful home! Soufriere is amazing and there’s plenty to do in the local area. My fiancé and I did ALOT of fishing and exploring on differnt charter and friends boats. We had an epic trip on my fiancé’s birthday and brought in 3 blue marlin, plenty of yellowfin tuna and 2 wahoo. We grilled up fresh fish many times at Leon’s home and also had one of our friends who is a chef/owner at Hummingbird Resort cook my fiancé and I the best tuna dinner I’ve ever had! We started we tuna ceviche, tuna cakes, and finally grilled tuna. The rest of the fish that we couldn’t eat we made sure to share with all of our new friends in Soufriere who made such an impact on my fiancé and I in such a short amount of time. We stayed at Rainbow Heights for 16 days and I already want to go back! The people, countryside, and the Ocean are amazing and I would highly recommend staying at Leon’s Home in Soufriere. It all started with a few conversations between him and I and the rest is history. It was a pleasure having him as our host and we treated his home as if it were ours. I can’t get over all the differnt sights, exploring, adventures, and friendships that we experienced and begun while we were in St Lucia. I could go on and on about the great hikes, the Pitons, the people, rainforest and even volcano.Rainbow Heights was a great home base for us to do it all. My Fiancé and I definitely plan on coming back, thanks Leon!
Overall a great property with wonderful views
There are two flights of stairs you have to climb to get to it and in oder coming out of the refrigerator I believe but besides that the views were amazing and I would definitely go back.
Excellent Location and Great View
Very comfortable villa with stunning view of the pitons. Great location for access to good snorkeling, hiking, and other sights. Villa staff is friendly and helpful. The site above the town of Soufriere can occasionally be a little noisy, but the location and view more than make up for that slight annoyance. Would strongly recommend getting a rental car to be able to visit the sights and dining out. The owner recommended a local renter that worked very well.
Nice Villa With a Great View
We booked this place about a month before we came so we were not sure what to expect. Overall, the place turned out to be very comfortable for our family of four. Pros, the villa has three nice bedrooms, with plenty of beds for six. There are lots of screens and windows to maximize the airflow coming in. There is a small but nice pool, and the view of Soufrierre is great, we saw rainbows on many days.
Cons, For some reason some of the bedrooms dont get a lot of airflow but the fans helped with that issue. The kitchen is nice but if you plan to cook a lot at home you will need to bring your supplies. The driveway is steep and it's best to back up the last stretch so you dont have to back down the steep incline. Also, the sound from Soufrierre will carry up the mountain, and a few nights there was music well into the night. The new fans that Dave installed helped to mitigate the sound so it wasn't that bad.
The manager of the villa, Dave, was very responsive to the issues we had. He helped us arrange a rental car for a decent price. He had a bottle of rum waiting for us when we arrived and dropped off some delicious mangoes during the week. It took us a few days to get our rental car, so Greg drove us around to different places, and was a wonderful tour guide.
