  • 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!"

  • Wonderful Retreat

    "When you enter Albatross Nest you find yourself in a spectacular retreat with panoramic views overlooking the vast Caribbean, the coastline of St. Lucia and the island of Martinique. Sailboats and and ships are mesmerizing to watch day and night as you gaze down at the sea and out on the horizon. The beaches below the villa in front of the Cap Maison and Le Sport resorts are a 5 minute drive away and welcome visitors for swimming, sunning and water sports. They are also good places for lunch and dinner. But you don't want to miss the sunsets at Albatross Nest while floating in the pool with an evening beverage or lounging on the terraces and open living room. We found that we often wanted to stay for dinner and got groceries in Rodney Bay, just a ten minute drive away. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is a great outdoor grill. The staff is outstanding with a manager who will arrange anything you need. We had a wonderful day on a boat down to the famous Pitons. The housekeeper and gardener kept the house and grounds immaculate and were very friendly and accommodating. We rented a car, which was all arranged by the house manager, and delivered and picked up at the house. The driving can be a bit challenging but easy enough and good to have the mobility and flexibility for short trips to the market, restaurants and beaches. We'd recommend a cab for longer trips like to to the airport, Pitons or rain forest. Overall, we had a verymemorable family experience."

  • Late review, but not because the trip wasn't awesome!

    "We stayed at Owen's beautiful Caille Blanc Villa for 10 days and it was truly amazing. The villa is even more stunning in person, the entire experience just feels like a dream while you are there. I woke up every morning blown away by the view and how lucky we were to be there. It has to be one of the best views on the Island. The staff were great, they took care of our every need and were extremely nice, they were like family by the time our group left. Marilyn is a great cook and we weren't let down by any meals. The Villa is close to almost all of the stuff you want to do there, the Pitons, Volcanic mud baths, zip lining, restaurants, it has a great location to get out and do that stuff. The only downside to the location was walking to the beach, getting there isn't bad, 10-15 minutes but getting back is a pretty good hike up a serious incline, if you have older people with you perhaps you should drive down. Owen has a driver James who takes good care of you, he is almost always available to take you wherever you need to go. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone going for a relaxing retreat with family or friends. We had both with us and the Villa is designed to keep you together when you want to be but also big enough and with enough privacy to be apart when you get sick of each other! TV service and internet are definitely spotty but i think they are working on that, i would recommend getting your work done before you go so you don't have to rely on any technology, it is vacation after all. Owen really went above and beyond to make sure we had a perfect stay, he was very hands on and i have never experienced another vacation home owner with his level of care and professionalism, it was really greatly appreciated. We didn't have to worry about anything once we got there and that is really what a vacation like this is all about. We all promised to come back in a few years after we see a few other parts of the world, but when we do go back to St. Lucia we will be staying at Caille Blanc. Special shout out to the staff, each of whom were awesome. Thanks Yellow, Paulea, Georgiana, Albert, Kolin and of course Marilyn. If you guys can put up with us you can put up with anyone! If yuo decide to stay at this villa definitely go check at Balenbouche state, Owen will tell you all about it and it was definitely a highlight of the trip. Thanks again Owen for opening up your beautiful home to us, hope to see you up in NY some time!"

  • Exquisite & the envy of St. Lucia

    "Don't forget your camera ! You will want to look at that view forever! Extremely special place and having travelled all over the world, there are also very special people in St Lucia. Beauty & smiles abounds in all directions. The property and house are stunning. If one appreciates historically designed homes for locations such as this, you will appreciate the house even more. Everything perfectly designed for comfort and maximum use of the views. The staff were amazing and the food equally as delightful. Having two hotels close by permitted us to also enjoy restaurants and the beach. Climb down the mountain side with Tiki to the private rock beach if you have the power or be lazy around the pool with a cold Piton beer!"
