The Treehouse Garden Studio...If you are looking for a standard villa and pool rental, then stop reading now! If you like lovely sea views framed between beautiful trees, abundant wildlife including many birds, wild coastal forest, tropical gardens, sunset and moonset directly in front of your studio, beautiful beaches to either side of the property, peace and quiet, discreet but helpful hosts, homemade ice creams and many personal touches presented with care and attention, then come and stay with us and enter another world! The Treehouse Garden Studio is the ground floor of the Treehouse. There is a separate studio called the Treetop Apartment on the top floor but each studio is totally independent of the other, well insulated against noise and completely private with separate entrances. The Treehouse Garden Studio is set in terraced tropical gardens offering wonderful views of the Caribbean sea framed by trees with spectacular sunsets and moonsets and frequent rainbows. Because of our approach to nature conservation, there is abundant local wildlife and especially beautiful birds including many seabirds such as frigate birds and pelicans. The terraced garden in front of the studio is home to a variety of sculptures and many fixtures and fittings in the studio have been created using wood from the garden or beaches, and even upcycled from disused pallets. The space consists of an open plan living and sleeping area including bed and kitchen. There is a separate indoor bathroom with a shower and a balcony with chairs and table overlooking the terraced garden and the sea framed by the trees. If you leave the large triple doors to the studio open at night - which nearly all of our guests do as it is very safe here - then it is almost like sleeping outside in the garden. An elevated wooden walkway leads from the balcony down across the terraced garden to the private sun deck with its sun loungers, umbrella, table and chairs. Under a large tree at the entrance to the property is an outdoor shower. There is an outdoor barbecue with sea views and a private garden entrance from the car parking space. Pablo and I are committed environmentalists and our passion for nature drives everything we do. Unlike other guest houses we never use pesticides or insecticides but work with natural pest solutions. A network of 15 fishpools provide an environmental solution to prevent mosquitoes breeding as the fish eat any mosquito larvae and therefore drastically reduce the mosquito population - this is in direct contrast to the common local practice of fogging for mosquitos with a spray made of neurotoxins. Using our experience, we provide advice to local hotels to help them reduce their impact on the environment and conserve resources such as energy and water. We have planted our garden to encourage birds and other wildlife onto our plot and we have left two thirds of our large property wild as a wildlife sanctuary. We are also planting many native plants in our plot which have been rescued from development areas in order to protect them from extinction. We love using driftwood, corals, shells and other items collected from the beaches around the house. The shower curtain in the studio is made from hand made fishing nets given to us by the fishermen on the beach below. Our curtain poles are made from driftwood and our curtains are made from antique French linen sheets. We make our own glasses by cutting old wine and rum bottles and we are now making bed and furnishing covers from vintage coffee, potato and olive sacks. We have inherited a commercial ice cream maker and as Pablo loves ice cream we always have a selection of homemade ice creams based on local fruits and nuts in season which we invite guests to share if they wish. We just ask a small fee to cover ingredient costs and work on an honesty box principle where you settle for what you have consumed when you leave. They have proved very popular! We have a family of three black labradors who live with us and who love visitors as well as a small herd of goats who keep the grass down along the roadside - so much nicer than using a strimmer! We work with two local Saint Lucians and we have designed with them a series of land and sea tours which are not on any tourist 'programme'. These are focused on local experiences and off the beaten track adventures. You can also hire watersports equipment from a kiosk in Marigot Bay at a special rate including kayaks, hobicats, snorkelling equipment or paddleboards. We have written a detailed information sheet which we send out to our guests once they have booked with us with recommendations on where to go and what to do as well as a description of tours which can be designed with local partners. Also available for hire if you book it early enough is our spare car, a small 4x4 Suzuki Jimny which is ideal for the road conditions here. Let us know if you want more details.More

About the neighbourhood
Saint Lucia is a beautiful tropical paradise with characterful seaside villages and the beautiful and unique Piton mountains which you can climb or just sit with a cocktail and admire. Watersports abound and you can take your pick of windsurfing, canoeing, hire a local fishermans boat and go snorkeling or canoe up a river for an inland view. Local attractions include the walk-in volcano and mud baths, botanical gardens, rainforest ziplines or walks, horse riding or segway.
Getting around
We recommend getting a small 4x4 car since roads can be rough or flooded during the rainy season. We can give you the name of a small family owned car rental business which we prefer to use than the international ones so that the money stays on the island. They are cheap, reliable and have good cars. Alternatively you can rent our spare car a 4x4 Suzuki Jimny which we only rent to our private guests if it is available. Or if you enjoy walking you can walk 25 minutes from the house down a shady private road (up on the way back!) and catch a local minibus taxi. These are friendly, frequent, cheap and go all the way around the island. A great way to rub shoulders with the local people.
