"The directions from the main airport are on the homeaway website. However, they are not adequate. With four people, we did all we could to decipher where the house was, and it was very difficult. It describes looking for a green wrought iron fence that does not exist (or isn't green, anyway). It had us take the wrong exit on a rotary (we double-checked) and they are poorly spelled out. They absolutely need to be changed. Get your own directions in the meantime before going.
Also, beware that you need the address of the villa (saying a villa in the town name is not enough) to put on your customs card when entering St. Lucia. Because there is no specific address on the website (and no warning that one would be necessary in customs, which they absolutely should warn their renters about), it created a long annoying hassle after a long flight. This should not have been the case. It would take minimal effort to prepare renters on this issue.
Aside from the above, the place was fantastic and the service was excellent. It is as advertised and seen in the pictures and kept in excellent shape. Excellent location overlooking a fantastic beach. Any questions we had were answered immediately by Leslie. We needed a key to the laundry room, which was over moments after the request, as was a blender. The propane on the grill was empty, though I sent an email to Leslie and it was replaced before we got back from the beach. The main bedroom has a gorgeous view and balcony. The pool is cold, but I quite enjoyed it.
The beach at the bottom of the hill is not busy and is absolutely gorgeous. Warm, beautiful water, and soft sand with no rocks. Also, a great couple of shacks for good food and drinks.
Also close to great fishing charters (I would recommend Hackshaw's) if that's your thing.
As others have noted, there is an airport right near the villa. It has regular supply flights coming and going through the day. It wasn't terrible, but was annoying at times when we were all out on the balcony in the evening and would drone on for some time. Without that issue, this is a 5 star review, for sure.
I would rent this place again and highly recommend it."
