About David Wallace

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

Why David Wallace chose Marigot Bay

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!

What makes this cottage unique

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?

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.

Paradise!!!

  • 5 of 5
We arrived at Natures Paradise tired and a little run down.
We were looking for a complete break and had decided to get away because we both suddenly realised that the batteries were flat and a restful couple of weeks away was a priority. I found Natures Paradise on the net and with the encouragement and help from Trip Advisor soon found the stunning photographs of the cottages overlooking the Carribean Sea. After a few e mails to Dave who was on holiday with Wanda at the time in Florence Italy we were sorted and ready to fly away!
Joe Joe met us at the airport and so our adventure began.We came to rely on Joe Joe because I found my Driving license had expired!!He was full of St Lucian charm and information as well as being a safe and considerate driver to other road users and his passengers. It was a bit like having an old friend in the drivers seat and we warmed to him.He was almost always available to drive us around to wherever we suddenly decided to go.
And so we arrived at Natures Paradise and were warmly welcomed by Dave and Wanda.Dave drove us down to Marigot Bay for our supper and picked us up later on.I slept 10 hours that night and for 10 hours on 4 subsequent nights.The bed in Banana Cottage was so comfortable and the cool wafting air provided by the splcacualr fan above the bed provided the perfect combination for restful sleep.
In the morning, after we had marveled at the endless view across the deep blue Carribean and the wonderful grounds and garden of which Wanda is so justifiable proud, Dave gently briefed us about the island and the trips we might make.In the end we did do something every day:the waterfall,the volcano,hotel chocolat,up to Rodney Bay and the Monument,off shore fishing with the lovely Cornelius, the Pitons,the market etc. We had of course planned to do nothing of the kind! We were just goig to chill out! Dave has this very gentle persuasive way with him and without too much cohersion we happily fell in and he guided us around and we are so pleased he did.
Dave does appear to be the quintessential laid back New York guy and so he is but he is also a very professional operator and runs and organises Natures Paradise with an eye for every detail. You will be looked after if you wish and left to your own devices if you wish.You want a taxi -it will be booked.You want a resturant booking-it will be done.You want to go fishing/snorkelling/scuba diving-it will be arranged.Nothing is too much trouble.You will feel special.Dave and

What a wonderful adventure

  • 5 of 5
Nature's Paradise was a really fun adventure in a truly beautiful setting, along with a peaceful environment at the B&B. My husband and I stayed at Nature’s Paradise for one week for our honeymoon in late September/early October, and while it was wonderful it was definitely more an adventure, so if you’re not fit and active then a hotel is the way to go. We took a taxi from Hewanorra and I would definitely recommend it, as driving is on the opposite side of the road (if you’re from the US), and there are zero road signs, no sidewalks, rough roadways and lots of pedestrians. The weather was hot but anywhere near the sea or up in the mountains was a nice breeze. It does rain, but for less than five minutes at a time and with no thunder or lightning. The breakfasts prepared by Wanda of fresh fruits, bread/muffins, jams, cheese, Tahitian coffee and fresh fruit juices were the perfect beginning to the day (8am sharp!) Some great restaurants are: Chateau Mygo, Rainforest Hideaway, Doolittles, Juliettas and The Mango Tree. Great excursions are: Rainforest Zip Lining Excursions, Pigeon Island National Park, David's Soufriere Eco-tour, and charter a boat with Bateau Mygo. A few more notes-Ask David about the secluded Pirate’s Cove near the B&B. It’s small and gorgeous, but if you’re going in the water you’ll want water shoes. I bashed my toe on a rock and the pieces of rock didn’t come out until TODAY (a month and a half later!). There’s a cute dock, a charcoal grill, a picnic table there.
-There’s a beach in Castries along the airport runway and it’s a good one to swim in (not many rocks or seaweed, and a place to park your car).
-Be wary of the people that want to hop in your car when you ask for directions. Everyone is very friendly across the board, but we ended up with a crazy in the car and some locals had to remove him for us, haha.

As for David & Wanda- they are the nicest, most accommodating couple you could hope to meet. They give you a map and ask what you’d like to do and make all of the calls for you and set everything up. David suggested we use one of his cell phones while we were out on excursions and it really gave us a peace of mind. He also drove us down and back up for our dinners each night which was a huge help and so kind of him. Wanda made some great suggestions and was a wonderful hostess. If you like bed and breakfasts you will LOVE Nature’s Paradise. It was rather an adventure for a honeymoon, but we will definitely be back!

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.
