  • Picturesque

    "My family and I stayed at Simon Lewis's 2 Bdrm Apartment from March 31, 2016 through April 8th. The 2 Bdrms are formed by joining a 1 Bdrm apartment with an adjoining studio room, and combined they are one entire floor in one of the buildings you can see in the pictures. I can honestly say this is the nicest property we have ever stayed, and Simon's apartment is perfectly located overlooking the pool and marina. You can walk from the pool to Simon's apartment in 30 seconds. This property is definitely high end, and is void of all the typical annoyances that come with normal vacation rentals (e.g. people reserving pool chairs when they are not in the pool, checking towels in and out, etc). The staff is very friendly, and they make a point of learning your names. They also go the extra mile by bringing you bottled water while at the pool, along with a couple of rounds of complimentary drinks (in shot glasses) during the day. There is no "check out time", you leave your room when it is time for you to go to the airport to catch your flight. Marigot Bay is truly picturesque, with the Northern half being mostly undeveloped. There are 6 restaurants around the bay (or very nearby), not including the Capella. Overall I would rate the food as good, but not fantastic (the food at the Capella was probably the best), and prices are high but not outrageous as at some other islands. The road conditions are really bad, so if you haven't been to St. Lucia before you absolutely do not want to rent a car from the airport and try to find the Capella. I rented a car with help from my "personal assistant" at the Capella, and it was quite reasonable. I also did not find this to be the best island for beaches or snorkeling. However, the people on the island are very friendly, and if you like the contrasting scenery of a mountainous island and clear blue Caribbean water, this is the place for you. All-in-all this is an outstanding property, and Simon is renting it at a very reasonable price for what you get. This is also the easiest rental process I every had through VRBO. Thank you Simon!!!"

  • Gorgeous home with spectacular view!!!

    "Our family stayed at the Bagatelle Villa for our daughter's wedding this past March, and found the villa to be amazing with the most beautiful view of the Pitons and Caribbean!! We never tired of the view!!! Seeing the glow of the sunrise, and hearing the birds in the morning was paradise!! We saw several rainbows during our stay, -magical! The staff at the Bagatelle were so helpful and prepared some delicious dishes. One morning we walked down to the village and bought fresh caught Mahi Mahi (Dorado) which the ladies prepared for us...Incredible! The owner of the villa, Nancy, did everything to make our stay wonderful! From the time we booked our stay to the day we left, she was available to recommend restaurants, and even communicated with the locals to ensure we were taken care of! She went above and beyond to make our stay there memorable! One of our favorite people we spent time with there was Popo, our driver!!! The terrain is a bit challenging, and we were not comfortable driving (on the opposite side of the road) so Popo drove us everywhere!! What a kind man!! I would highly recommend you call on him whenever you need to go anywhere! He did an amazing job, and everyone knows him! If you are looking for a private villa, and want to relax and truly get away from the hustle and bustle, then the Bagatelle Villa is the perfect vacation get away! We highly recommend it!"

  • Words can't describe this wonderful vacation rental!

    "We have just returned from a lovely two week stay at Poinsettia House in Marigot Bay. Everything about this rental is fabulous. When you walk in, the view and atmosphere take your breath away and you feel so lucky to be vacationing in such a beautiful space. The layout was perfect for two couples with bedrooms with en suite bathrooms at each end as well as two living areas. Between these two ends are the well-equipped kitchen and dining area with a cooking island that looks out to the bay. The entire house front of the house is open to the view with no windows, only screening. Then there is a large partially covered deck with a wonderful view of the bay! Elaine is a pleasure to rent from, replying quickly to questions and providing guests with great details about the house, Marigot Bay and St. Lucia. She recommends a local fisherman who we contacted and he caught us a delicious red snapper. We also took a taxi into the Castries market and bought lots of fresh vegetables and fruit to allow us to cook many meals. The housekeeper, Luciana, can be engaged to cook a Lucian meal for you… we did this twice and were so pleased with the meals and her engaging personality. We enjoyed the ferry trip over to town and our daily swims in the Caribbean. Our tours around the island were so interesting, we went to the Pitons and Anse Cochon for swimming and snorkeling. St. Lucia is a beautiful island! We highly recommend this rental. Book it early though, to get the dates you want. We booked almost a year in advance to get the two weeks in March that we stayed. It was well worth waiting for!! We have fond memories of our adventure and our time at Poinsettia House!!"

  • Complete Paradise!

    "Let me start by saying that the Hummingbird Villa is a wonderful place to stay. My family and I headed to St. Lucia this year to celebrate the holidays, and when we arrived at the villa we were immediately impressed. Not only is it in a safe and beautiful neighborhood filled with lush trees and flowers, but from the moment you drive into the property you are absolutely blown away by the home’s various views. No matter what window you look out of, you will see beautifully dense trees and flowers, and the ocean! The villa also has a great set of upper and lower deck/balconies. We ended each night relaxing out on the deck, which we all really enjoyed after being out all day exploring the island. And if we were not out on the main deck, you would have found us by the pool! The pool was a perfect size, the water was warm, and it's surrounded by (again) beautiful trees and flowers; it has a very private feel to it, which was great. The house was also more spacious than we expected. We had a total of 6 people staying in the villa and there was always a place in the house to escape to, which is, let’s be honest, required when traveling with family. So just know there is plenty of room around the house and property to do just that. Another important aspect about the house was its location. We had a rental car, and from the house it seemed as if you could get nearly anywhere you could possibly imagine going very quickly. We fell in love with the beach in Smugglers Cove located below the Cap Maison hotel. It’s a fairly small beach, set in-between beautiful cliffs, however it was never overly crowded. It was absolutely beautiful (and clean) and took about 5 minutes to get to from the house (there is also street parking right by the stairs that take you down to the beach). There’s also a restaurant right on the beach called The Naked Fisherman. I can’t even remember how many times we ate there, it’s amazing (order the fish n’ chips)! The villa is also about a 10 minute drive to Rodney Bay, where there are little shops and restaurants. It’s also a little less than 10 minutes to The Landing’s Hotel, which had a great beach where the waves were small and consistent. The hotel also has a ton of water activities that you can pay to do, including wake-boarding, waterskiing, jet skiing, parasailing, and even water jet packs. Overall, we highly recommend the Hummingbird Villa! You'll love both it and St. Lucia!"
