We had such an amazing stay at La Batterie. We previously stayed at one of the five star resorts in the area two years ago. We fell in love with the beauty of the island and all the people and decided that we had to come back. We decided that we wanted to try something different and rent a private villa as we have always stayed in a resort or an all inclusive. Besides coming back to St. Lucia this is the best decision that we could have made. From the beginning the owners were very helpful in answering all our of questions (yes there were many) and providing us all of the info we needed to plan our vacation. As soon as we got off the airplane we were met by Clavie, the driver for the villa. Clavie is awesome and was always available to take us wherever we wanted to go. He joked and said that he is the “unofficial mayor of St. Lucia” but there may be some truth to that as he knew someone everywhere we went. Having Clavie available to drive us around made our trip that much better and we would highly recommend using him instead of renting a car. When we got to the villa we opened the gate and were at a loss for words with the view. This is the view you see on everything St. Lucia, the iconic Pitons but ours for the week we were there. The villa is beautifully maintained from inside and out. We had a great time with the gardener Terry who has been there for over 30 years. He shared with us his wisdom of the garden and even showed us how to make fresh coffee…so cool. The staff at the villa were wonderful. Marilyn and Bibi always had a smile on their face and did such an outstanding job keeping the villa spotless everyday. Stephanie prepared many wonderful meals for us during our stay, full breakfast spreads and a wonderful variety of local cuisine for dinner. We joked that Stephanie needs to open her own restaurant in town because her cooking is better than many of the resorts in the area. We cannot say enough about the experience we had at the villa and the amazing stay. Everything was perfect. We highly recommend this villa to anyone considering St. Lucia for their next vacation. We are already planning our return in 2020!
My family and I absolutely loved staying at the villa. Oma and Myrna were so attentive to our needs and help make this trip so memorable. They helped with identifying excursions and a driver to get us around town. The driver was one of the highlights of our trip. He not only got us there and back safely but he also provided so much information about the island the towns we would pass by. His name is Ashen so ask for him!
The villa itself is pristine and was so well taken care of. Oma also provides housekeeping at no charge so it felt like we were staying in a hotel without the hotel prices. I highly recommend staying here if you ever come to the island. The area is so quiet and safe and the people are amazing!
