I have looked so forward to writing this review of La Batterie Villa. My only concern is that others will discover this jewel, and we won't be able to rent it in the future! From beginning to end, Michael Keane was an incredibly approachable, affable, and gracious host. The house itself is fantastic, and just what one would expect of an island getaway. Open and breezy, comfortable and darling, I can't say enough about the accommodations. And the staff!! They are all perfect examples of the St. Lucian people. We were made to feel right at home, welcome and every little thing we asked for, was answered and more. Miss Cynthia's cooking was great and much appreciated; Miss Marilyn and Miss Stephanie bright and shiny; Terry the gardener roasted fresh coffee beans for our mornings and brought us many different local spices to bring home; and BK the night watchman made us feel safe and secure every single night. And Clavie, well, he is beyond wonderful. Wherever, whenever, we wanted to go somewhere, he was right there. The beach at Anse Chastanet was our favorite spot with the "huts" on the beach, yummy food and cold drinks and wait staff that we got to know and vice versa. We have traveled all over the Carribean and used VRBO all over the world and U.S. Never, have we had this kind of positive experience. Don't hesitate to rent La Batterie if you ever get the chance to go to St. Lucia. I promise you, you will come home and begin planning your next trip there. Because, when you leave, you will have left a part of your heart there. Thank you Michael and Jennifer for sharing your retreat with others. It's a trip we will never forget.
