We highly recommend this villa. The Villa is beautiful and in the most beautiful setting on the East Side of the island . We prefer the Atlantic side as there is more of a breeze and no mosquitos. We were a family of 7 with 3 children and 4 adults. The home was perfect as our oldest daughter stayed on the second floor with the 3 children ages 11 and 7. The second floor has its own living room and kitchen. The villa is spacious with lovely furnishing. All 4 Bedrooms have King Beds and very large En Suites. The view from this home on all floors is breathtaking with an amazing warm trade wind. Each floor has an end to end balcony that overlooks the Caribbean. Each balcony comes with a hammock where you can spend endless hours listening to the tree frogs or hear the wind sing. The rooftop has a view that is breathtaking. We spent time just watching the heavens.The kitchen is furnished with modern kitchenware . We cooked almost about every night and Virginia is a cook that comes with the house if you like. The owner provided a welcome dinner our first night. What an amazing treat since we had traveled from California. This is a first for us where Dinner was part of our welcome. Virginia cooked us 3 fantastic Carib local food, a real treat. The pool is sparkling clean and we used it every day. The kids lived in the pool after each day at the beach, It is also perfect for small children as it has a full fence if needed. This is our second time to St Lucia and the beauty is unbeatable. Our favorite beach was Sugar Beach and Ti Kaye for snorkeling. We took a sail one day and a Catamaran another day. There is a marine reserve at Sugar Beach roped off and the fish are beautiful . The white sand beach lies beneath the amazing a Pitons. The Rain Forest Spa is something out of this world . We have visited over 26 islands and no spa could beat this one at Sugar Beach. A scrub and 80 minute message are worth every penny. Oma the owner of the home provided out standing service. He answered all of you questions and checked in with us frequently. He even went out of his way to provide a microwave for the home.The staff is amazing and provides housekeeping everyday except Sunday. The office is also very helpful with providing any information you need about the island or help in booking trips .We spent 22 nights at the villa and enjoyed every minute as it has everything one could want. You will need a car since the villa is on the East side of the island. Oma has a great referral for a car rental. We hope to return to Castles in Paradise as it is truly Paradise. Thank You Oma for sharing your villa for an experience we will never forget The grandchildren will always remember this trip had the time of their lives snorkeling , zip lining (a must) and enjoying all of the incredible amenities of the villa and the island.
The villa at Castles In Paradise exceeded my expectations. The accommodations were clean, spacious, comfortable and modern. The patio is perfectly set up for the sun lovers and for those who like the shade. The heated pool was a nice touch as well. Lastly, the views were spectacular! I can’t wait to go back.
My friends and I went to St Lucia to celebrate my belated birthday and my friend’s retirement. Upon our arrival and after collecting our luggage we proceed to the exit and was met by a driver arranged by Oma S the owner. The drive from the airport to Castles In Paradise was about 5 minutes once entering we were taken to Villa 14 where we found a beautiful 4 bedroom Villa each with their own private bath and air conditioning which you will not need due to the continuous breeze throughout the house. In addition the upstairs had its own mini kitchen with a refrigerator and stove as well as a lounger in which you could lie down and overlook the beautiful Atlantic Ocean. In contacting Oma before our arriving to request that a surprise cake be prepared for my friend’s birthday he was so helpful in ensuring this happened.The cook Virginia made the cake and my Friend was very surprise and happy and said she really enjoyed the cake If you want a peaceful ,relaxing and soothing experience I highly recommend the Villa 14 at Castles In Paradise.
If you are looking for a villa in St. Lucia away from it all, quiet, with vivid views of the Atlantic and the island, look no further. Castles in Paradise, Villa 14, is the perfect place for you. The villa sits high in the development and has great views of the castles and the Atlantic Ocean. Whether you are on the first level, the second level, or the roof, the views are amazing. Sitting on the balcony looking over the island is very calming.
You enter the villa through a patio passing colorful flowers and trees, and a pool right in front of the villa doors. We kept the double doors of the entrance opened all day until we went to bed. The villa has 4 bedrooms with double doors which open to large balconies and incredible breezes (24 hours a day). All the bedrooms have a full bathroom. No air conditioner is needed but each bedroom has an air conditioner unit. There is also a full kitchen, dining area, and half bath. I was especially appreciative of the wash room. This villa has it all. You will not be disappointed.
I also have to mention the owner, Oma. He was extremely helpful, accommodating, and patient. He checked on us to make sure we made it and that everything was going well. He helped us with hiring a cook, Virginia, who had a very warm spirit and was an excellent cook. He also helped us arrange transportation because you need a car or to hire a driver. I would strongly suggest hiring a driver.
Some simply words to describe this villa . Spectacular, beautiful spacious very clean and well kept . The pictures of this place is awesome but there’s so much more to this place , the beautiful French doors to all the rooms in this house gives you the feelings of being in a very special place , the massive kitchen I fell in love with , being a chef as I am it was like heaven , everything in the kitchen was what I have at home beautiful quality , the fact that you can step out the door and you’re in a beautiful pool was amazing, the scenery from all corners of this property was breathtaking, I can say all these things but it would be so much better to experience this lovely villa for yourself it’s worth the trip.

This home is clean, well-appointed, very spacious and has spectacular views. The owner was extremely accommodating. A little off the beaten path, having a car was very helpful and the owner even connected us with a rental service. Housekeeping was excellent and the chef prepared a delicious meal for our first night there. Each bedroom was as nice as the next...tons of room for a large group/family.
The property and view are just as beautiful as in the pictures. The villa is well-maintained and spotless. Maid service is provided Monday-Friday. When we arrived, the staff person we met was very helpful. She gave us excellent directions to the nearest grocery store and even offered to drive there so we could follow her.
We liked the layout of the villa: each of the two floors has a great room and a kitchen in the middle with a bedroom and an en suite bathroom on each side. It was easy to socialize and easy to have private time as desired. We had a four-year-old with us who could not swim. On each side of the pool area there were cleverly-designed, fifteen-foot gates that we closed when we weren't swimming, fencing off the pool.
The pool apparently is solar-heated. It was a little cooler than the ocean and a little cooler than we would have liked.
