  • 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!"

  • Fantastic Vacation

    "Our family stayed at La Batterie during the last week of June 2016. We had a wonderful vacation and the villa was a big part of it. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained, and the house itself is lovely and has a real island feel. When you walk in your eyes are immediately drawn to the incredible view of the water and the Pitons. Even after a week it was hard to believe how spectacular the view is. The pool is another amazing feature of this home. Our family enjoyed spending time at the pool so much that sometimes it was difficult pulling ourselves away to go explore the island. The setting is so lush and peaceful, you could not help but feel completely relaxed. The house's staff were terrific- Stephanie, Marilyn, Clavie, Terry and BK were all friendly and helpful and really seem to care about making their guests' stay comfortable and enjoyable. We highly recommend having Stephanie cook at least a few meals - she is a great cook and prepares excellent local food. Its also a big help to be able to have Stephanie buy groceries for the home. Together Stephanie and Marilyn kept the house spotless. Having Clavie as a driver was a great experience. He was always responsive and available, and freely shared his knowledge about the island. BK the night watchman always greeted us with a smile when he came for his shift, and always made sure to check on us to see if we were doing ok or needed anything. If you enjoy nature hikes, we would definitely recommend having Terry the gardener take you on a rain forest hike. Terry has a wealth of knowledge about the local vegetation and the various fruits and vegetables and spices that can be found there. Plus, it's really good exercise! The house is well situated in Soufriere. The beach at Anse Chastenet is about a 10 minute walk downhill ( be aware though that the walk back uphill is quite steep.) The beach itself is small but lovely, and the restaurant that is part of the resort is very good. If you're looking at any organized tours, you'll notice that most of them spend much of their time at the attractions in and around Soufriere. Finally, Mike and Jennifer, the owners of the home, were great to work with. They stay in touch with you in the weeks leading up to your trip to help you plan, and are extremely open and responsive to questions. Overall, we couldn't have been happier with our vacation and with our stay at La Batterie."

  • 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!"

  • Amazing Vacation Home

    "My wife and I along with my brother and sister in law stayed here the week of Feb 20th 2016. This was my wife's and my second trip to St. Lucia. The first impression walking thru the front door and thru the house is WOW at each and every step. Mary and Pius were so helpful and answered any question and were very accommodating. So some basics you should consider when visiting. 1) DO NOT RENT A CAR! the roads are very dangerous even for the experienced driver 2) Print out your confirmation regarding the house as you will need it going thru customs. There is no WIFI in customs if you're thinking of just bringing up the website (was a huge delay for us until resolved) 3) Consider stopping on the way from the airport to the house for sundries like munchies and liquor as there is nothing in the house and yes Mary will make you a dinner upon your arrival which is wonderful. 4) The market shops in Soufriere are European style meaning that the grocery market is mostly "dry goods" and vegetables, you may want to go to the butcher for meats, bakery for bread and such, Fish Market for seafood. Pius can help guide you. 5) Sugar Beach is great (snorkeling some of the best on the island) however when Pius drops you off you will need to go to he far side of the beach for chairs as the resort there will want to charge you $50 per chair otherwise (rip-off). Also Blaze who sells fruit there is where you want to get your fresh fruit (amazing). There are some other amazing beaches (look at Fort Vieux area or North side). 6) Sulfur Springs Volcano is a nice trip but bring a bathing suit that you do not mind getting ruined as you cannot rinse the stink out of it and will need to toss. 7) Botanical Gardens are amazing. There's a fellow there that has an incredible herb garden that he gave us handfuls of a multitude of local herbs and we paid $5 for. All of which we used in cooking several chicken and fish dishes. 8) You must ask Mary to make her famous fish cakes. You will need dried salt fish, flour, hot sauce, parsley, rice, salt, pepper. These are to die for! 9) The gardens around the house have an amazing assortment of fresh fruit like lemons and grapefruit and oranges as well as fresh herbs. 10) No real issue with bugs as the breeze thru the house is constant and there is mosquito netting, but bring bug spray with Deet just in case. In Summary, loved the house, the island and the people and we would certainly come back again. All the best Scott & JoAnn"
