“Great base for exploring the real St Lucia”
Reviewed 1 April 2012

If you want to experience a luxury holiday in St Lucia, then the usual suspects of all-inclusive resorts will I'm sure do you proud. If you want a base with home comforts that enables you to see the real beauty of St Lucia, then the Terrace Villa is ideally situated.
Frank and his mum Doreen are very attentive and friendly, without being intrusive. Mitra ensures the villa is well serviced, and the little added extras like the mobile phone with local SIM card an added bonus.
The aircon and the plunge pool provided welcome relief from the relentless heat, and the view from the terrace, whilst not the most picturesque in the bay, enables you to experience the life of the locals whilst getting a glimpse of the lives of the super-rich through watching the mega-yachts navigate in and out of the marina.
The flowers in the yard are a mecca for the local hummingbirds (Carib) and others, providing further evidence that this place is pretty close to paradise.

We spent 8 nights in the Sunset Villa with wonderful views of the harbour & out to sea. Frank went out of his way to see that we had everything we needed. He arranged the vehicle hire on our behalf. The swimming pool was private & overlooked the sea & the bay. The staff were attentive & charming. Despite the steep road up from the bay the walks from the villa were peaceful, scenic & enjoyable. Altogether this villa exceeded our expectations.

This was a fabulous place to stay. The one bedroom we rented was beautiful with the best modern appliances and a spectacular view of Marigot Bay from the balcony and hammock. The pool was beautiful as well with the same glorious view from your lounge chair. Frank and his team were awesome, friendly and informative about the island! It was quiet, relaxing and beautiful. The villa itself was great, with lovely amenities. Our internet connection didn't wok great and Frank was on the hop to fix it that day.
We try to go to a different island every year, but we might be back to St. Lucia- and it would definately be to one of Frank's properties.

Room Tip: if you want quiet, peaceful, relaxing beauty. If you are looking for a fitness center, walk up from...

We just returned from a wonderful holiday week in St. Lucia. Many thanks to Frank and his team! He provided us with phones and answered every question we had on what to do, where and how to best plan our vacation. We rented a 4 wheel drive. It is a very hilly climb to the villa, and it was needed for touring the western coast of the island. The villa was comfortable, updated and cleaned twice during the week for us with fresh towels regularly provided. We were able to enjoy breakfast, a lunch and even cooked/ grilled a few dinners there. The family ate our meals on the patio overlooking the bay and ocean. They even had a vase of Birds of Paradise on the table. The view, although spectacular was slightly obstructed by telephone wires. The price was very reasonable for a family of 4.

The worst thing about Chateau Mygo Villas is the road leading up to it. The best thing is the view across Marigot Bay. The worst road/lane/track we have ever travelled up was blamed on hurricane Tomas but I think it started a bit before that. When we eventually found the apartments (why they are called villas I do not know) after no proper signs I was exhausted because of going round and round and up and down said track for what seemed like hours but was rewarded by a nice large terrace overlooking a beautiful bay. The apartment was one large room with a comfy bed, well equipped kitchen area and small shower room. The furnishings were good quality and thought had gone into making the apartment look good. However there were a few things that could help to make it just that bit better and when we suggested these to the owner Frank we were pleased to have a positive response with a promise to look into our suggestions.
There are three apartments at the moment, two small ones next to each other and a larger one below, but there is building work going on above the property which may add more. Just across from the apartments is a long swimming pool and some nice sun loungers to soak up the sun. It is a shame, because of a large retaining wall from the works above, the sun does not manage to reach much of the pool therefore it was too cold for me.
Frank and his mother also run a restaurant down in the bay and Bateau Mygo - a boat venture! The food in the restaurant was OK but we found almost every restaurant in Marigot Bay the same. In fact we wondered what folks who visited and moored their huge boats the size of houses did for food as the restaurants, even at the posh hotels, were at best ordinary!
If you like boats and people watching and if you want a good view of the famous (Lord knows why) Marigot Bay then I would recommend Chateau Mygo Villas. There is only one thing that for us spoiled our two week stay and that was lack of sound proofing between the two apartments. We could hear 'everything' that went on next door!!!

We couldnt have asked for a better 2-week vacation! Frank (Shaid), his mom Doreen and their staff at the Marina/Restaurant/Maid were like our family by the time we left.
Very clean, beautiful view, local cell phone provided, wi-fi, all amenities we could need. Gideon was our taxi driver, he is very quiet but very dependable! Everything we needed was right there in Marigot Bay! Took a taxi for day trips (Market in Castries, Botanical Gardens, Volcano, lunch at LAderA) but our time was best spent just lounging on the water front and talking to the locals.
Be sure to book your sailing charter as soon as you get there to ensure availability - they are very busy! The charter (Bateau Mygo) was great! The food at Chateau Mygo was great! Absolutely no complaints. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a quiet get-away in a very safe and loving community.
Without a doubt I hope to return here again sometime soon.

My husband and I stayed at Chateau Mygo villas when we came to learn how to scuba dive in St. Lucia. The one-room villa is one of 3 (I believe) situated high on the side of the hill overlooking Marigot Bay. You will definitely need a 4 wheel drive to get up there - and it's totally worth the money if you're going to spend any time in St Lucia. Our room was very quaint and pretty - well decorated, clean, with a nice kitchenette with utensils etc. 4 poster bed, and good cable tv and wireless. The bathroom needs more ventilation and can smell damp, particularly during the extremely wet weather we had. But overall, very cozy and quiet - and an amazing value for the price. We cooked and ate outside, and there's hammock you can string up. Plus, in the morning, if you open the door, there are 2 small birds that are more than happy to join you.

A few minuses: The villa doesn't have maid service everyday, which can be difficult when everything is damp and nothing will dry quickly outside. And while there's a barbeque, it was around the corner and not easily accessible if it rains. It can also get pretty buggy, but it's wet.

All in all, the view is amazing, the place is cozy, the service is good and the value is great. A good find for those who don't like hotels by the book.
