"My friends and I had the privilege of staying at Brigand Hill on the transcendent island of St. Lucia.
Exactly what we needed to relax and unwind. The house is set beautifully in the luscious hills of Anse La Raye, you cannot see any other properties, just beautiful greenery and the sea in the (not to far) distance. The main part of the house has a fully functioning kitchen, breakfast bar and comfortable seating leading out onto where we spent the majority of our time at the property: the large wooden dining table, pool, and sun loungers! All of the bedrooms are of equal size and each come with their own bathroom (apart from the 2 by the pool which share one), perfect for friends who like their own prep space! The master bedroom (which I had the pleasure of staying in) has beautifully high ceilings, wrap-around windows and a 4-poster bed. Due to the setting of the house, there is often a gentle breeze which keeps the temperature wonderfully refreshing.
As wonderful as Brigand Hill is, it would be nothing without the EXCEPTIONAL staff, who looked after us, like we were members of their family.
Miss Vera came in the mornings to clean the rooms, bathrooms and kitchen AND do our laundry (never have I returned home with nothing to put in the washing machine) all to the highest quality; it felt as though we were living in a hotel!
Bertillia is the heavenly chef that we have all struggled to live without since our return home! We had asked for local foods to be prepared, and were not disappointed at any point. Bertillia came in hours before to lovingly prepare and cook our meal and we spent but a few minutes to devour it all! We would highly recommend the St. Christophine dish, the curry goat, the breadfruit balls, and the St. Lucian national dish of salt fish and green bananas. Just typing that has given me hunger pains!
Last, but certainly not least, is George – the only person you need to make sure you have the best time on the island. We didn’t really have any plans when we arrived, but George sat with us and helped us to work out an amazingly well-paced itinerary for the week. He fixed EVERYTHING for us – anything we wanted, George went out of his way to help). I am truly indebted to George for his exceptional care of me and my friends, we feel like the luckiest people to have visited St. Lucia because of him!
