We had the pleasure of stay at La Toc Villa for ten days in June of this year. Ian the owner was quick to respond to all inquires and booking of the villa. Joan the villa manager also was very responsive. She helped to set up a rental van that we were able to pick up at the airport upon our arrival and return after our trip. The roads in St. Lucia are well maintained and although a long drive, it was easy getting to the Villa, with instructions that Joan provided. She met us at the Villa when we arrived and took time to show us all of the necessary operations. The pictures of the Villa are extremely accurate and the grounds are groomed. Everything in the Villa was in great working order and showed excellent upkeep. The view from the Villa was fantastic, from morning coffee on the deck watching boats coming and leaving the Castries harbor, to the picture perfect sunsets. The Villa is wired for both 220 and 110, so no need to pack adaptors. Also, guests have access to the washer and dryer if needed. Flores the housekeeper came almost every day. She cleaned and did bed sheets twice during our visit. One day she prepared a traditional St. Lucian meal. The master bedroom is located upstairs and has a great view. The other two bedrooms are off the main floor area up two steps. All bedrooms have adjoining bathrooms, with all of the towels you will need. The pool was refreshing and clean, we could swim and enjoy a drink after a day of diving. There is a gate at the bottom of the driveway that you can close at night for security, even though we felt very safe in the location of the Villa and throughout the island. Thank you for a fantastic vacation!
We have been looking at this property for some time and finally decided to book it. If you stock up on groceries you really never have to leave this place! My wife and I rented a car to get around the island, which made sense staying at a house instead of a resort. If you are tired of the resort flare, check this place out. The pool is huge, my wife did laps every morning. Flores the house keeper was fantastic! My favorite view, aside from the ocean and azalea tree, was at night looking out the back door, something about the lighting and ferns calmed me down! Would stay here again for sure!
Thanks to the owner for sharing this gorgeous home! We just left this lovely villa and would go back in a heartbeat! This home has everything you need for an enjoyable stay. The home is well maintained and is exactly as represented. We sat on the upper deck and enjoyed watching the planes and the cruise ships coming in. The beach area that you can walk to is great and was not crowded at all while we were there. The pool is fantastic and we spent a great deal of time there. The owner and manager provided so much information on things to do and that was so helpful to us. We spent a day on a boat with Will from Adventure Tours....best day out as we saw the island from the water and we also saw so many dolphins! We ate at The Pink Plantation and The Coal Pot and loved both of them.
There is no a/c in the living area and that was the only downside for us since we aren't used to the heat/humidity. But really.....we were in paradise!
Flores and Markly were great to visit with and so helpful with tips about the island.
Thanks again for allowing us to stay and enjoy the villa and the island!
We just came back from having a wonderful week at La Toc Villa. Everything is beautifully taken care of. The pool is a delight, very private with views of the ocean from every room in the house. The housekeeper Flores, does a wonderful job of keeping everything clean, neat and in working order. We asked her to help us make breakfast one morning, and everything came out delicious! We gave her some $$ for the additional "chef duties". The pool man and gardener were also very nice. You won't even notice they are there. We decided to hire a driver instead of renting a car and it was the best decision we made. The driver "Big Runner" knew every square inch of the island, good places to eat, shop, etc.
It was our first time in St. Lucia and we look forward to coming back to La Toc Villa.
EXCELLENT! A great experience from the very first connection with Ian. Joan and Flores were very kind and helpful. We arrived after dark so the view was quite a gift to our eyes in the morning! Every window had a striking view either looking out to the ocean or a tropical paradise. The Villa itself was very clean and well maintained. The kitchen was equipped with everything one would need. The location was perfect,great access for day trips and only a short walk to the beach. La Toc is a exceptional vacation villa!
La Toc Villa was wonderful! Perfect location near the beach, beautiful views. The villa is very spacious and open, with wonderful breezes. We especially liked the multiple terraces to enjoy the outside space, not to mention the wonderful pool. We enjoyed beautiful sunsets most evenings.
Everything was handled very professionally and promptly with the rental. Ian was very responsive and most helpful with tips and instructions. Joan was very helpful when we arrived and always available if needed during our stay, and Flores kept the villa spotless.
This was our second visit to St. Lucia and we were able to try some of the suggestions provided by Ian and Joan. We highly recommend the Pink Plantation for lunch, not only for the fabulous food, but for the views over Castries and the beautiful pottery. We also tried a day pass at Sandals, which was a great way to spend a day just relaxing and enjoying the amenities they offer.
We have traveled for many years throughout the Caribbean and stayed in many properties. This is truly the whole package - great property, great location, great amenities, and above all, great owner and manager. Highly recommended!!!
Everything about this home and management of it is impeccable. The home itself is huge, furnishings are beautiful, owner, manager and maid awesome.
We’ve traveled all over the world and La Toc Villa easily one of the best accommodations ever.
St Lucia a beautiful country but you will be tempted to never leave this Home. Thanks Ian,Joan and Flores
