My fiancé and I along with 2 other friends just got back from our stay at rainbow heights villa and we have nothing but good to say about our stay!
The house itself is very secluded about a 10 minute drive up the mountain from soufriere. We ended up renting a vehicle to drive ourselves to and from town and around the island which we would recommend to anyone staying here as it made things much easier because we could come and go as we pleased. The house has great outdoor spaces and we spent most of our time at the house outside playing cards and hanging in and around the pool. The house does not have air conditioning, but the natural cool breeze that comes through the valley efficiently cools the house down throughout the whole day and night. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need to cook, (except obviously food which we bought at the local supermarket) and we had 5 out of 7 meals at the house. The beds were clean and comfortable and there were a lot of extra blankets and linens if needed. There were also enough towels for a week for the 4 of us.
We were left to ourselves for the most part but we were very taken care of by the locals who look after the place, and they were always available if we needed anything. We felt very safe as they wanted to hear from us or see us once a day to make sure we were ok. We had a local chef Rosemarie come to the house to cook for us one night and it was so good that she insisted she had to come back and cook more local food for us again. The 2nd night she came with one of her friends who is a chef at one of the local restaurants, and they made their national dish called "soul fish" or "salt fish" with green figs (green bananas) which was to die for! We very much enjoyed our time with Rosemarie and one of the caretakers, Pius. Pius drove us up to Gros Islet (if you've ever driven in St Lucia you will understand that this is no small feat) for the Friday night Fish Fry and him and Rose showed us the ropes and how to have a good time. We had an amazing night that night and it wouldn't have been as good if it wasn't for Pius!
Overall this place is great if you are looking for a quiet secluded home away from home, and are interested in getting away from resort life! We loved it!
