“A great place to stay”

This was our first visit to St Lucia and we travelled independently as a party of 7 - 2 families, 4 adults & 3 teenagers.

Having not been to St Lucia before we were very nervous about booking a property directly but on speaking to Anne we were reassured to find that she is British and has another ex-pat who manages the place on her behalf. We were also very pleased with the information she sent through, especially the recommendations she made for hire car (essential for this property), which we duly followed up (Adventure Leisure) and booked 2 excellent small 4x4 vehicles as well as transfers to/from the airport for a very good price - after a bit of e-mail negotiation!

Summer Breeze is approx 1 mile from the main tourist resort on the Island - Rodney Bay - which we found to be a perfect location. We did find Rodney Bay a little "artificial" with the usual "strip" of bars, clubs, restaurants etc., (plus Subway, Burger King, KFC etc.) which is not our thing but it does have the advantage of having a good selection of shops, 2 or 3 really decent supermarkets, banks etc., plus there are one or two gems to be found if you root them out (triangle-pub where the locals eat - fantastic local food at very low cost - & - Cafe Ole in the marina which is great if you hanker for a latte, or want some nice healthy food or a cake treat).,

Next to Rodney Bay (and actually where Summer Breeze is on the outskirts of) is Gros Islet which is very quiet during the week but has a fantastic street party every Friday (street food & dancing). On the cross-roads where you turn from the main road to Summer Breeze there is a fire station and directly opposite this there is a bar/restaurant (up some steps above a hairdressers) - known as "Angels Place" (though when we were there the sign didn't say this) and you can get unbelievable local cuisine & drink made by Angela (who is a St Lucian, but spent some years living in the UK) at ridiculously low prices - very much recommend the curry, the plantain & her homemade dressing!

Summer Breeze itself is in a really good spot - it struck us as being a really safe location - up in the hills - fantastic views overlooking Cotton Bay on the atlantic side of the island. It was well appointed but you have to make allowances for the relatively poor country you are in so it would not compare with a top-notch UK cottage, but was clean, had everything we needed (kettle, coffee machine, fridge/freezer, cooker, loads of showers - even free wifi / internet etc.) and even though there were 7 of us, was more than big enough for us all! The beds were comfy and there is plenty of storage space in the bedrooms.

There is a handy balcony overlooking the pool - which is fantastic - clean & well maintained and we all enjoyed the opportunity to cool down in it!

If you like wildlife, then you won't be disappointed - we had literally tens of bats swooping across the pool some evenings, the cacophony of sound the frogs & insects make at night has to be heard to be believed, hummingbirds regularly visit the trees in the back yard, lizards scurry around... take a good camera - you will need it!

A few things to be aware of - and this is no reflection on the property at all, but more life in St Lucia....
- there is no air conditioning - the temperature stayed around 30-35 degrees both day & night - thank god there is a constant breeze about the place (hence its name) but even then it was a little uncomfortable at times due to the heat. Electricity is expensive in St Lucia so we guess this is why there is no A/C.
- St Lucia is full of wildlife - insects, lizards, spiders etc. No amount of cleanliness will keep these out of the house - but keep food in the fridge and it's not really an issue.
- Dogs - everyone has 3 or more dogs there. And they bark. A lot. And if you are light sleeper, expect to be working at about 5am. That said, if you were staying in one of the towns you would very likely have loud music to contend with, blissfully there is none of this in the tranquil setting where Summer Breeze is. So the dogs is probably the lesser of two evils.
- The road - all the major roads on the island are of comparable standard to your average UK "B" road - which means they're perfectly wide, adequately tarnac'd, just a bit wiggly with plenty of bends and not many straights. But the last quarter-mile from the main road to the villa is... well, challenging the first time you see it. It's unmade, rutted, full of cobbles & stones, very uneven and the first time you see it you will probably not be impressed. However get a 4x4 (we had suzuki Jimny) and you get used to it. It only takes 2-3 mins to drive over this section but having the right car is essential. We would not recommend staying in Summer Breeze unless you were prepared to rent a car - we wouldn't recommend walking or relying on taxi's.

We would recommend Summer Breeze as a good base for exploring the island - it's right at the north end, but the roads are decent enough that you can get around to pretty much anywhere as a day trip - and we never saw another place on the island which would give you the flexibility as a tourist that you need.

Just bear in mind that it's approx 90 mins drive from the airport and some of the delights of the south of the island (rainforest, volcano, mud-baths etc.).

We are sure to go back to St Lucia one day - and Summer Breeze will almost certainly be where we stay.

We spent a great 10 days with our friends, the group comprised of two families.
We all loved St Lucia and the property. The house was well equipped and more than big enough for the four adults and three teenage boys.

Pros
Pool
Views
Bats
Great value for money

Cons
Poor approach road (need 4x4)
Local dogs barking
Lighting in the house

“Great place to relax!”

This is a great house. It is spacious and modern and the bedrooms are a very good size. It has a large, well equipped kitchen and an open plan living space. There is a large pool with a deck and sun loungers. Its location on a hill means that it is quiet and had a fantastic view. It takes about 10 minutes to walk up/down the hill to the main road where you can catch a local bus to the beach or walk another 10 minutes to the beach at Gros Islet. It would be better to have a hire car though as walking is not always practical in the heat or at night.

“Amazing Views, fantastic villa!”

I have just returned from a week long stay at this villa. We had a large group of 8 and the villa could easily accommodate all of us with plenty of room. The pool and outside area is well maintained and the main balconies offer fantastic views - we got up to watch sunrise several times.
Renting a car is a must as it is up some fairly steep hills, but its only 5 mins from the main road and is well worth the drive for the views you get once you arrive!

The owner answered my many questions before and after booking and the property manager offered a great service once we were there - waiting for us on arrival and advising us on the local things to do and see.
Would definitely recommend this to friends and family for future stays - the villa is incredible value for money compared to the other villas I saw once I was there!

We were a large group of 7, with another 2 persons joining us for one of the two weeks of our stay. It was our first visit to St Lucia and Annie, the owner, was very patient and answered our numerous questions. The villa itself was just right for our needs. We self catered and were able to do this easily. The villa is situated on a hill, but is a great base from which you can go off and enjoy the island. The views of the sea and mountains are amazing and some of us gave in to the irresistible urge to wake up early each morning to catch a glimpse of the glorious sunrise. Last of all, but most important, the cooling breeze was sooo good for the hot temperatures. We did not use the air conditioning at all. The villa is most aptly named. We all agreed that if and whenever we returned to St Lucia, Summer Breeze would definately be our first choice.

I don't usually write reviews, but after staying in this place I think it is a privilege to inform future visitors to stay there. I happened to be staying with a large group at summer breeze and we never had to worry about sleeping arrangements. Another thing which I found was rather impressive was the maintenance of the place, on many occasions I will see someone maintaining the pool or even the yard and if we had any problem the owner of the villa was at the door in minutes. There was only one problem which I hope doesn't sway your judgement with staying there, the road to get there is really bumping and far from the main street, so if you are staying there i do recommend to rent a 4-wheel drive.
