Family Holiday Trip
The views from the house were spectacular...but that is where it ends...the property manager did not meet us at the house on arrival nor departure...the cook and maid met gave the key and left...nothing was explained regarding the house...the worst is the refrigeration...the main refrigerator was broken...a secondary refrigerator....the freezer worked but the refrigerator couldn't cool properly...there were several small refrigerators...two of the three functioned...there were also several plumbing issues... a water pipe broke and "rained" upon lower bedroom...water completely out in another bathroom...at times low pressure issues in other bathrooms..just poor communication...the house was spacious...the bedrooms and bathrooms were ok...soap only...overall it needs a makeover...Sam, the absentee owner, did make a small refund for all the inconveniences...we paid a premium for the holidays and expected a home in premium condition and it wasn't.
Whilst we understand that what you'd imagined and what you experienced were not aligned, for which we have given a more than reasonable refund for - we feel you have been harsh on the property in the review. The burst pipe could not have been predicted, and a plumber was out the moment the manager was made aware. There was also communication between yourself and the manager from 30 days before your stay via email, and you had his phone number during your stay. We don't like to smother guests, and most prefer to be able to settle into the property once they arrive. One refrigerator was out, but the ones that remained are functioning properly. Nonetheless we're sorry your holiday did not match your expectations.
Birthdays in Paradise
Our extended family gathered in St Lucia to celebrate two major life events and Banana Quit House was a perfect setting. From the unique setting to the spectacular views to the fantastic staff we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay. We had something for everyone; wreck diving, snorkeling, deep sea fishing, volcano, waterfall, rainforest, and just sitting by the pool with a rum drink looking at The Pitons. A fantastic place for family and friends to gather.
Wedding week stay
We hosted most of our guests here while having our wedding on St Lucia. The house was big and airy. Margerite, Asha, and Michael (staff) were amazing. Small issues we had with AC and water pressure were attended to promptly. I was a little confused about the food ordering process but all went smoothly in the end. Beautiful views, beautiful house.
The one downside is that as most of the doors am have slats in them, there’s not a lot of privacy for noise or otherwise. The two rooms in the basement with the most privacy don’t have bathrooms as new or a view that is as pleasant as the others.
The road leading up to the villa is as steep and bumpy as others say. We rented a car and it was fine, but if you’re at all timid about driving up steep roads and turning around right turns, use one of the many recommended drivers.
We walked down (and back up) to Jade Mountain Anse Mamin, and Anse Chastanet several times and enjoyed the snorkeling and beaches there as well as some hikes on the property.
Beautiful villa in a idyllic location
We had the most amazing time at Bananaquit House! The villa is really beautiful, loads of space, wide views of sea and the pitons. The staff are lovely, they look after you, make you feel at home and cook really tasty Caribbean dinners so you can focus on unwinding! The road leading up to the house is very windy and bumpy but adds to the experience, would recommend hiring a car or booking taxis to get around. Anse Chastnet beach is a walk or short drive away and you can find the best fish burgers in town on a more secluded beach around the bay.
Spacious and relaxing property with the best view on the Island.
The property is fantastically located with great views of Soufriere and the Pitons. It's very peaceful, bar the occasional party boat passing by in the bay below.
It's a great base for exploring the South of the island or just relaxing with a book on the terrace.
Rooms are all large and come with mosquito nets (which you should use). The common areas are large, spacious and very clean.
The swimming pool is of a decent size and has a great view of the sunset in the evenings. There are table tennis tables near the pool but the paddles have suffered a bit in the tropical climate so it would be worth bringing your own.
Anse Chastenet and Anse Mamin beaches (I prefer Anse Mamin) are fairly easily walkable from the house but it's a hot climb back up :)
The staff are very friendly and helpful with cooking and laundry on request. They did some great local side dishes for us that lasted a couple of days in the fridge and served us for lunch and dinner.
The roads are not great in the immediate surroundings, so local taxis are probably the way to go for transport.
Overall we had a great time.
This property exceeded every expectation. From booking to end. The property is was gorgeous in every way, the most pleasant and helpful staff. Booking this property was the best idea and an epic venue for our wedding. We can not say enough great things about our experience at bananaquit villa. The villa was extremely beautiful, spacious, and the view ...... oh my the view !! Sam was amazing with all of our questions and promptly resolved and and all with professionalism and in a timely manner. My wife and I are world travellers and have stayed all over the world, by far Sam, the staff and the bananaquit villa is a must do for any occasion. Thank you again Sam!!! We will be back
Anse Chastenet offers some of the best scuba diving in St. Lucia, with regular trips around the reef and wrecks.
Nearby are several other beaches, including Jalousie, between the Piton mountains. With its white sands, shallow and calm waters, this beach is ideal for children.
