Guestbook comments from the owner
The location high above Marigot Bay surrounded by nature and Wanda and David's hospitality is truly breath taking. Our cottage was comfortable and well equipped. For a couple living in the heart of the city, the sounds and silence of the tropics are absolutely delightful as is the lush tropical growth. We enjoyed the suggested restaurants particularly brunch on the porch of a colonial plantation house. Our trip to Soufriere with David was wonderful as was the dip in the remote warm springs. We also rented a 4 wheel drive vehicle to explore the island. We learned much about the tropical growth and flowers on this trip as well as life and culture of the island. Wanda's island breakfast's are perfect and the bananas from their own trees a particular treat. David's recommendations are always on target and the people of St. Lucia welcoming and helpful. Yes, Nature's Paradise is a unique adventure and you would be fortunate to share it.

WANDA:

“I love St. Lucia because of its abundant rain forest, beautiful shore line and laid back lifestyle.”

Wanda practices and teaches Tai Chi and Eagle Claw Kung Fu. “Health and food (and David) are my passions.” explains Wanda.

“Our fruit, veggies and fish are always fresh. It is a pleasure to cook and create mouth watering dishes with local ingredients.”

DAVID:

David is an award winning television director. He is an avid world traveler who found St. Lucia to be the best of all islands. “I like to sample the hot springs and waterfalls that I find around the island. I keep discovering new places all the time.” David and Wanda have climbed both Pitons and earned their scuba licenses in St. Lucia. “The flora and fauna are unforgettable.

It truly is Paradise.”

David Wallace purchased this cottage in 2001

We choose St Lucia because it is the most beautiful island in the southern Caribbean. St Lucia has a large Rain-Forest, lots of beaches and wonderful warm people. It a rare country where you can relax and feel safe & secure everywhere. Stress is low and the food is great. So many restaurants!

Nature’s Paradise is about our spectacular views, lush gardens and 30ft, waterfall fed, swimming pool on the side of a cliff.

Our Tropical Breakfast (Mon - Fri) begins at eight and lasts until you have finished dining on our fresh breads & strong coffee. Fresh fruit is always available. The seasons dictate which fruits are on the table. Dining is in the Main House.

Did we mention our many Eco-Tours around the island?

Getwaway!

  • 5 of 5
Nature's Paradise is a wonderful way to get away. Dave and Wanda are the perfect hosts --knowledgable, engaging, caring, and respect your privacy! Nature's Paradise is for people that truly do not want to be in a busy area - Marigot Bay is beautiful and really gives your a taste of the local flavor. Dave took us on a tour of the Peton's, mineral baths, and a volcano. We felt after just one week, we understood the island. Everyday we did something different -- beach, sailing, relaxing at the pool. Their home is lovely, high in the hills with incredible views. You do need to rent a car -- you will be driving everywhere. Wanda has landscaped the property beautifully, you truly feel that you are in your own little world. Marigot Bay is not commerialized, we loved this as it forces you to engage with the local people and food. The people of St. Lucia are very friendly, I have been to many Caribbean islands, St. Lucia by far is the friendliest and safest. It is perfect for couples that want a lot of privacy.

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5
My partner and I spent three weeks in March 2014 at Nature's Paradise with Dave and Wanda. It was obvious from the way that they had taken a ridge top in St. Lucia and turned it into a beautiful garden that they really care about St. Lucia and their home. That caring carries over to how they treat their guests. They were always ready to help us find what we wanted to get the most out of our sojourn. We got up really early to see parrots with a delightful guide, Charmaine, we walked rain forests, we climbed Gros Piton and saw it from the sea in a unihull. We were directed to tasty food both local flavour (Julietta's, La Monique, JJ's) and various fusions (Pink Plantation, Fox Grove, DJ's, Orlando's, Chateau Mygo, Rainforest Hideaway, Le Chocolat) in Marigot Bay and around the island. We walked and hiked and swam and snorkled and soaked in the glorious sun of St. Lucia while in one of the most beautiful places on earth. We were taken to favourite places of Dave and Wanda. We met some delightful new friends. Go now to catch St. Lucia as a traditional Caribbean island. Stay with Dave and Wanda to have it feel like home.

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5
If you are a bit of a do-it-yourself adventure seeker on your vacations and like to take advantage of much that a new place has to offer in terms of sea, sun, food, hiking, and more without a lot of excessive fuss, then Nature’s Paradise is the ideal place from which to explore St. Lucia. My husband and I stayed in the Ginger Room, which is attached to the main house, from 12/22/13 – 12/31/13. You don’t hear much about the Ginger Room as it is not really on the website and is overshadowed by the fabulous cottages, but it is a great alternative if the cottages are unavailable. The room is spacious with a small refrigerator and shelves off the closet that served as a great place for us to keep snacks and drinks. The bathroom has a lovely glass block shower and lots of space to store all your toiletries. The room has a very comfortable bed with a small sofa for lounging. There are windows on two walls and a great overhead fan providing plenty of natural air conditioning. The tree frogs at night are amazing! But, the best part is the view through the main sliding glass doors that overlooks the beautiful tropical foliage that Wanda has planted on the property and the Caribbean ocean beyond. Despite being attached to the main house, we always felt very private and secluded when in our room and also enjoyed being able to use the main verandah as our quasi-personal happy hour location without bothering others who were staying there.

David is instrumental in helping orient you to your location on St. Lucia. He goes over the map and is always happy to give you directions to places, make suggestions for activities, etc. He will also make reservations for you and help in any way possible. His connections within the community always managed to get us a great table or the best guide, etc. St. Lucia is not the easiest place to navigate as there are virtually no road signs. It was very helpful to have someone in the know to tell us how to get places but if you get lost, like we did, just ask the locals as you are driving. They will gladly help you get where you are going. David’s tour of Soufriere was a highlight and I encourage everyone to take this if you can. The secret mineral springs that David has found alone is worth it! Beautiful and secluded. My husband and I are very honored to have been able to get to know both of them as they are not just great hosts, but special people.

Perfect in every way imaginable

  • 5 of 5
This was for our honeymoon and our requirements were:

1. Semi-private - we did not want a resort with many guests
2. Accessibility - wanted to be near (15 min drive) beach, boating, romantic restaurants, hiking
3. Amazing view - love to wake up and have a cup of coffee while overlooking the ocean
4. Friendly, knowledgeable owner - wanted recommendations from an insider

Nature's paradise delivers on all of these and so much more. David and Wanda have been on the island for 15 years and know so many great places, local people, and hidden gems. All I had to do was say before we arrived "I want a romantic boat ride, a beautiful waterfall, and some great local food" and David had it all ready to be booked when we got there. We took his day tour of one of the areas and it was awesome. He clearly loves St Lucia and enjoys sharing all of it with his guests.

Wanda has landscaped the gorgeous property from scratch and there are so many types of plants, flowers, and birds to see just on the property alone. All of the pictures on the site are accurate but cannot do it justice. She has breakfast for you each morning (except weekends) and the best coffee on the island by far. Both of them made us feel very much at home in our bungalow (which you really should stay in - your own porch with a view of the ocean and Marigot Bay - stunning!)

This was absolutely the trip of a lifetime and would not have been possible without Dave and Wanda. We miss it already and cannot wait to go back. Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions at all.

Wow. Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5
There are many resorts in St Lucia but we were looking for something out of the ordinary and not overly close to other resorts. We found the perfect place.
Nature’s Paradise has some of the best views in St. Lucia. The cottage (ours was Avocado) was very nice with elegant 4-Poster bed, sitting area, full kitchen, large bathroom & best of all large balcony with Awesome views. You really get to experience the beauty of this place.
We could not have asked for a more romantic or fantastic spot than in Marigot Bay. There are no bad things that we could say about the it. The pool was a perfect way to cool down after a day on the beach & the views from poolside are stunning. The snorkeling at a beach within walking distance is beautiful with a number of tropical fish & coral right off the beach.
Nature’s Paradise is one of the best priced resorts that I found in St Lucia that offers private cottages. The views from both cottages are of the Caribbean Sea. In back of the cottages is Wanda’s beautiful tropical garden. Humming Birds flutter about. The Pool area overlooks the sea and the sunsets were stunning. We even saw a blue flash (once). One morning of light rain left us with an intense rainbow. We highly recommended Nature’s Paradise.

Honeymoon in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented Banana Cottage for a week at the end of March, 2013. We rented a car at the airport and made our way to Nature's Paradise later than expected due to a delayed flight. We found David & Wanda in the main house and they immediately jumped into action making us feel welcome. As David helped us with luggage and toured us around the lush property, Wanda brought us a perfectly refreshing drink that hit the spot. After we settled in, David took us down the hill into Marigot Bay, showed us around, and had reserved a delightful dinner spot for us on the water. When we were finished, he picked us up and brought us back up to our cottage.
Every morning for breakfast, Wanda made fresh bread and served all guests a blend of tropical fruits and juices. We thoroughly enjoyed each fresh breakfast as well as conversations with the other guests. After breakfast on our first morning, we sat down with David and got the "lay of the land," literally. His vast knowledge of St. Lucia and its people was impressive and served us well as we enjoyed our week in paradise. At that point, we felt confident about venturing off and exploring.
David made any arrangements and/or reservations we needed for both day and night activities. Two of our favorite daytime excursions were (1) going with David on an eco-tour to the botanical gardens, mineral baths, and active vulcano; and (2) renting a staffed sailboat for the day to explore the island from the water. Most evenings, we went to a Marigot Bay restaurant where David had reserved a top notch table for us - all were exceptional!
We enjoyed the Nature's Paradise pool, and found it to be the quintessential sunset spot. Incidently, there is no bad view from the property.
If you are considering staying at Nature's Paradise, keep in mind that although you are truly part of Marigot Bay, you are up a steep, bumpy, windy road and you will end up traveling that road many, many times. As mentioned, the property is perched beautifully for views of the bay and ocean, and we quickly learned to navigate around all of St. Lucia's steep, bumpy, windy roads - it became part of the island's charm for us.
We wholeheartedly enjoyed our stay at Nature's Paradise, and hope to return for a second honeymoon sometime. David and Wanda are exceptional hosts with unlimited knowledge and connections to make visiting St. Lucia a very memorable experience.
