Absolutely perfect location for a group of people to hang out.
We held our wedding reception here and could not have asked for a more beautiful place.
The pool! The space! The sunsets!
We had a wonderful time doing nothing at this house.
The view is amazing and the house had everything we could have asked for. The beach access isn't really for swimming. We had two families with kids ages 14-13-11-9-5-3. They loved the pool and the bedroom accommodations worked great. It's is tough to find at night as the street aren't marked well. Grocery store in town worked. The Marino Bay grocery store is very highly priced. The bay has fun restaurants with good food but it's expensive and stay away from Doolittle's. Terrible service and the food is mediocre at best. Read the reviews and enjoy the laughs for Doolittles. Rented a sailboat from the bar tender at the Hurricane Hole. Wonderful day on the water. Fun happy hour there...must do! Thank you for sharing your wonderful place!
We went to St. Lucia to visit family and friends as well as celebrate my dads 50th birthday. I loved the home but I would not recommend bringing kids. Everything about the home is beautiful hands down! However the pool area is extremely slippery. My son slipped and fell around the pool area on our last day and we ended up with a $800usd hospital bill for 7 stitches. The first aid supplies were all expired as well. The other issue is there are no railings walking down to the garden again could be dangerous for a child. Now the positives, there is a small beach area down the beaten path. The beach has a very strong current so I would not recommend swimming but I loved lounging, and exploring. We found a trail that leads to the house and was super fun to do. The homes has not only a great view but is very peaceful at night. You can here the waves and island music coming from some of the bars down the hills. Everything you would expect from an island.
My husband and I were so taken aback when we arrived at the villa. The view little takes your breath away over and over again.
Communication was great and everything as promised with Nina (the property manager) and Howard (the owner).
The house is great for families or couples.
Suggest to rent a car though as it is very secluded and is a bit of a walk to Marigot Bay down a windy, hilly road.
The spiral staircase through the center of the house is stunning, as is the metal one outside. The pool is perfect and there is even your own private rainforest garden to stroll through.
This is a great place to unplug and check out from the hustle and bustle of daily life, if you are looking for nightlife, not going to find it here.
If you are with a group, the villa is perfect to gather at night.
We will be back!
High on the side of a large hill, views and sunsets were spectacular. The house had lots of room, well appointed and environmentally well thought out. It is not for families who want instant access to beach but swimming in the infinity pool at sunset overlooking Marigot Bay was a lifetime experience. Water pressure could have been better but did not hinder enjoyment of the time we spent. Grounds were well kept and if anything too many personnel too often. Lots of linnens, towels, dishes etc
We would definitely stay again.
The first thing i have to say is this house is BEAUTIFUL, it exceeded our expectations. It was clean and had all the amenities you could ask for. We travelled with another family that had teenagers and we have 2 toddlers and everything was great. The View is the BEST PART! And the infinity pool was great!
I was worried about the mosquitos and Zika before we left since we all get bit so easily. I can say there really weren't any mosquitos at all. Just spray yourself and you are fine.
The location in Marigot Bay is ok. You aren't near any great beaches but you are near a nice resort (Capella) that has good restaurants. There is also a dock nearby with boats that can take you places and taxis are there too. We rented a car, but it is very hard to navigate the island and the roads are VERY, VERY steep and winding. Plus, keep in mind, they drive on the opposite side of the road.
Only other cons would be that there were many tiny ants in the house in the kitchen area, but the property manager said that was common everywhere on the island this time of year. Also, only the bedrooms have air (and in the one master bedroom, the air isn't even that good) and all the common areas do not. While the breeze is great, it gets VERY HOT in the house. They have some fans to help. Last, we were given a book with some local info and some brochures of the island, but you are really on your own to book or set up anything, so do your research ahead of time.
Overall, we had a blast and miss the breath-taking view!
