Recent St. Lucia reviews

  • STUNNING views in a tropical, lush and casual setting! We would definitely rent again!

    "The great: We had a fantastic visit to St Lucia and thoroughly enjoyed Soufriere in particular. Beautiful place, beautiful people – we will definitely be back. The views from this home are spectacular!!!! We spent a large percentage of our time just marveling at the majestic Pitons, enjoying sunsets and identifying the diversity of the plants, flowers and birds living on the property. The house is open-air and feels very tropical. We were serenaded to sleep by frogs at night and even enjoyed a few lovely rainstorms. There is no air conditioning at the house, but we were never too hot as there are nice winds and fans in every room. The furniture is comfortable as were the beds and bedding. Ann and Cheryl were very nice and the food they made for us was very good. It’s such a treat to go on vacation and let go of all the daily chores. Nancy was easy to deal with and answered all my questions. We arranged for Popo’s to drive us to/from the airport and to get around during our stay (he’d even drop us off and pick us up later) which was very nice. The not so good: The electrical was wonky and fried our baby monitor even though we were using a high-end convertor. We ended up only plugging things in when we could watch them and take them off if it got too hot. Many lights didn’t work and seemed to be wired incorrectly. This concerned me because the only way to lock up the house at night is to pad lock yourself in with a different key for each lock. I slept with the keys in my pillow and unplugged anything that seemed dangerous because I was worried about getting out quickly should there be a fire. The wi-fi was terrible because the router is broken - a simple, inexpensive fix. There isn’t enough furniture on the balconies and various outdoor spaces. The pool was extremely dirty and we had to clean it ourselves before we were able to use it. There were also several cigarette buts on the balcony - yuck. While this is a tropical, open home, there were a lot of bugs. We were fastidious in cleaning up food scraps, but we saw quite a few roaches. While it's not possible to avoid this entirely, it might be time for a visit from an exterminator. The ceiling fan in the MBR was very loud and wobbly - an easy fix. More towels in the bathrooms would also be nice. While many of these things are small and definitely wouldn’t prevent me from referring the house, a few easy fixes would make this property more in keeping with a “luxury” rental in this price point."

  • 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!"

  • Amazing and perfect in every way!

    "Clarence is a great guy! He was helpful from the time of reservation and all the way until our departure from the island. He picked us up from the airport and dropped us off. His amazing wife made it a point to meet us on the day of our arrival. During his spare time he took us to the malls and tour of the island. We never got to rent a car. A call to him would help you if you need to know about restaurants or bars. He even helped us buy grocery and essentials. Rooms are okay for the price you pay, basic but completely furnished. Wifi is available but weak. He is planning to fix it. You have a grocery store within walking distance. I would recommend his apartments for singles and couples or group of two. We were there to watch a cricket match and it was worth it. For those who plan to drive make sure you call him and try to get a prepaid cellphone. In St Lucia most homes do not have a street address and difficult to locate on GPS."

  • 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!"
