The moment you open the front door, you will immediately say "Wow!" as your eyes absorb an incredible view of the Caribbean Ocean and the twin Pitons through the open-air design of the Villa Pitons Retreat. If you're looking for a quiet, private get-away with spectacular views and a unique setting, this is the place. The villa has some great architecture features, including custom designed tile work, a mote flowing from the pool into the villa and the castle-like look of the house -- especially the master sleeping quarters. The back of the villa with the pool, patio, beautiful grounds and one-of-a-kind view, all adds up to what is truly a private retreat overlooking God's incredible creation. Mary, the housekeeper, and Gregory, the pool/groundskeeper, are both friendly and accommodating to your schedule. We also had Mary cook two authentic St. Lucian meals which were excellent. There's several good nearby restaurants, beach, snorkeling and hiking -- so activities are available if you can tear yourself away from the villa.
