  • Wonderful place to stay

    "This place is amazing. It's very comfortable and relaxing. The view of the Caribbean is great. Having a private pool is the best! John and his local staff are wonderful. They will take care of whatever you need. John answered all our questions and made our trip easier. We rented a car which was delivered right to the villa. We were close to great restaurants, beaches and Rodney Bay Marina. If you're looking for something quiet and with privacy, this is it! We ate breakfast every morning on the veranda with an amazing view of the Caribbean. Also, the sunsets are gorgeous whether your relaxing in the pool or lounging on the veranda. The housekeeper Luenda and on island agent Ena are very friendly and very helpful. Luenda will even cook you a meal or shop for you. We even arranged for a couples massage on the veranda which was so relaxing. This place has incredible charm and is the perfect place for that romantic trip where you can avoid the masses. Overall, this was an incredible honeymoon for my wife and I. Thanks John for having it available. It was truly a vacation of a lifetime."

  • The View is Everything

    "La Bagatelle has a premiere location overlooking the Caribbean and both Pitons. Nothing can compare with the views at any time of day - mornings watching a passing shower sweep across the Pitons while the sun paints a rainbow, sometimes a double one, so close you feel you could touch it, or the delights of a many-colored sunset as small sailing vessels lazily ply the waters in the distance, or even the nighttime illuminated specks of cruise ships on the horizon off to the next port of call. With the superlatives views come extraordinary paths to reach it - if you opt to rent a car, it should absolutely be 4-wheel drive as the "road" from Soufriere to the house is extremely steep, more often than not washed out by rains and containing several hair-pin turns. Otherwise, hired drivers are the way to go if you want to get out and see the island. We preferred the independence of our own vehicle and one does get used to the challenge of the ascent over the course of a day or two. Almost everything you want to see/do is within a 30 minute drive or so from the house so the location is excellent - visiting the volcano and the Diamond waterfall, hiking Gros Piton, doing the Tet Paul Nature trail, and last but not least, wandering Soufriere's streets to enjoy the local color, the market or taking off for a snorkeling/sailing half-day trip. All beaches are public so we visited Sugar Beach [located between the two Pitons - they truck in white sand so it's quite nice] and had lunch [tapas and VERY expensive so order carefully] and the resort down the road, Anse Chastanet, which has a grayer, more gravely sand. The house is fine with a huge open room at the second level and a small pool [unheated] at the side. There is no question it could use some updating and freshening up, however. There is mosquito netting over all the beds though we never had an issue with insects and the entire house is gated with bars and padlocks [you'll get a hefty set of keys] though it's hard to see how anyone could get up here and want to break in but must be necessary. We felt completely safe, there are villas on both sides. We were not planning on doing any cooking and so we relied on "menu" lists from the owner which the staff would prepare - four dinners. Unfortunately, we were disappointed in the meals as the ingredients we picked from the list including sauces and fresh vegetables were not followed. Make sure to communicate exactly what you want."

  • This is truly paradise!

    "Looking for a spot to call home-base while visiting St Lucia? A place that helps you to tailor your visit to your individual interests? Nature's Paradise in Marigot Bay is the perfect location. Owners David & Wanda Wallace have done an outstanding job of creating a private oasis and they are wonderful hosts. Are you adventurous - looking to engage in daring exploits (i.e. Rent a car, climb the Pitons, take a tram across the rain-forest, etc)- the Wallace's can set you up on those excursions with reputable guides. Or are you less of a thrill seeker but want to experience some St Lucian culture- David & Wanda can provide you with helpful tips and advice on how to navigate your way. For those of you who are homebodies and just need a beautiful space to find rejuvenation this is the PERFECT spot- the views of the ocean are spectacular, the pool area is picturesque, and the walk to town is invigorating. Nature's Paradise lives up to its name and caters to all kinds of interests. (They also have TV and WiFi. And if you need a phone but don't want to pay outrageous international roaming fees they will rent a cell phone to you at an amazingly inexpensive rate.) At Nature's Paradise (NP) there's something for everyone. My husband & I have only been home a week from our 10 day visit and we miss NP already. We highly recommend it!!!"

  • Beautiful View!

    "My sis in-law, hubby and I, recently stayed here. Highly recommend this secluded villa, beautiful décor and all amenities one can think of. We decided to do our own thing, rent a car and tour the island ourselves. With the excellent welcome and guidance from the Managers, we found our way around quickly. We were there in June and the mosquitoes were bad. Left with many bug bites, so it's important to wear some guard. No netting on the windows. We bought our own groceries and picked fresh pineapple, coconut and cashews from the garden. It's an adventure and a getaway for those who want a taste of authentic St Lucia."
