  • Easy living in a beautiful marina!

    "Marigot Bay is one of the most beautiful natural marinas we have seen--and the principal charm of this property. You can imagine that the 100ft sailboat docked below your balcony is yours, if only! The unit itself is beautifully and recently renovated, and Peter was easy to make arrangements with. A few service bumps with Capella management and a wonky water heater did not dim our enjoyment of Saint Lucia."

  • Great Vacation

    "We traveled with a group of friends with our respective children and had a great time in St. Lucia staying at La Paloma. The house at first was a little difficult to find with the attached directions - but so was everything else in St. Lucia ;) The house was huge - very kid friendly. The view from the balconies and pool were astonishing and very relaxing in the morning and at night. The pool is not huge - but was perfect size for kids to frolic around in. The house was very clean and well maintained. Its located in on a gated private road - so peace of mind for those worried about safety. Susie, the cook prepared the dishes perfectly. She and Annette were on time every day and the kids loved them. We had fresh fish delivered via a fisherman one day that was phenomenal."

  • Relaxing holiday

    "We reallly enjoyed St Lucia and Marigot Bay . The resort/ villa /ammentities were above and beyond. The staff are always upbeat and happy. Sitting pool side they will bring you complimentary snacks. It was a very relaxing holiday. The actual unit we stayed in was not the unit pictured, we were confused at first thinking there was some mistake. But sadly it was not a mistake, this unit was an ocean front, garden view. It was really important to us to have an ocean view so it was a disappointment for us. If an ocean view is not in your criteria you will absolutely love this villa and resort."

  • Outstanding in every way!

    "Our family of 4 spent spring break week at Villa Makambu, and we had a truly remarkable experience. The villa itself (we stayed in the lower 3br unit) is island-elegant - well decorated, spacious, extremely clean, with spectacular views of Marigot Bay and the Caribbean Sea. The pool area is beautiful, adjacent to the outdoor seating area of the villa. The kitchen is completely adequate, and the bathrooms are nice with wonderful open-air showers. But what makes Makambu and St. Lucia in general so unique are the people. We can't say enough about the level of service provided by the full-time and on-site property caretaker Carlos. He seemingly worked all day and night to ensure the grounds were in perfect condition. Any questions or needs we had, he took care of (such as driving us down to the village for dinner our first night, before the arrival of our rental car). Our VERY BEST two days of the vacation were spent with Carlos and his first mate and cousin Lance on Carlos's motor boat, visiting various beaches, resorts, and snorkeling spots along the Caribbean coast. They refer to this as a "water taxi" but it really was our own private water-based tour guide. So much fun and a tremendous way to see the island. The rest of the staff was amazing. Myranda kept the inside of villa spotless and always had a smile on her face. Josee manages the property for the owners and provided us with a thorough overview of the island and things to do upon checking in. Owner Pascale was very responsive and easy to work with. And the people of St. Lucia were all very welcoming and gracious. We would definitely recommend a car rental. The village of Marigot Bay is walkable, but you'll appreciate the convenience of a car to explore, hit the grocery store, etc. The cool thing is the owners can arrange your car rental for you at an excellent price, with the car delivered right to the villa - no hassle when you arrive at the airport (included in our rental was transportation from the airport to Makambu). At the end of our week, we drove to the airport and met the car rental agent, and just handed him the keys - couldn't be any easier. Our only complaint for the whole trip is that the food in St. Lucia leaves a lot to be desired. Expect to spend a lot for mediocre food. Masala Bay in Marigot is outstanding, we enjoyed lunch outside at the Bayside Cafe. In closing, we loved our time at Villa Makambu and can't wait to return!"
