|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
Experience one of the most spectacular views in the Caribbean -- an unobstructed view to the sea and the horizon, so you won't miss the green flash! This is a perfect location for one or two couples, or a small family. Poinsettia House is located within short walking distance of resort amenities. There is no need for a car as you can walk to restaurants, bars, grocery, dive shop, watersports rentals and more.
The beach is a two-minute walk from the house, with beach chairs free to guests. If diving is your thing, dive boats leave the bay daily. Day sailing trips take you up and down the coast or further!
Poinsettia House sleeps up to four persons in very comfortable king size beds made up with fine linens. The kitchen is well equipped with everything needed for the 'chef' in you ! Two sitting areas plus the outside deck give you lots of space to spread out and relax. Dine inside on a large table with a view; or on the outside deck with candlelights under the stars. The grounds are well maintained by our gardener with fruit trees and flowering plants and shrubs. The house is kept in immaculately clean condition by our housekeeper, Luciana.
There's lots to do here! Take a short walk to the beach and sit on one of our loung chairs with a good book. Snorkel on the outer edges of the bay. Take a water taxi to a nearby beach for more snorkeling. Or hop one of the dive boats and explore the wrecks off the beach. Go for a west coast tour and see the volcano, botanical gardens, Pitons. Go off for a day sail on one of the boats that go out of the harbor. Or arrange a private daysail -- just the two of you and the sunset. Go to the market in Castries and see all the produce that is grown on the island or shop for some local crafts. Experience a zip line tour in the rain forest. Climb the Pitons. Do lots or nothing at all !!
We are long time New Englanders who moved to Florida in 2012. We love both our island in the states and in StLucia.
Elaine Jackson purchased this house in 1986
We bought Poinsettia House years before the island was really developed to handle the tourists it does today. No traffic lights in Castries, not even many cars, few hotels We have seen many changes on the island over the years - -most of them to the betterment of the Lucian people. Marigot is still the Marigot we knew it back then -- particularly on the north side where the house is located-- little has change in our almost 30 years of ownership.
If I ask guests what they most liked about Poinsettia, I know what they'll answer. The View! And that's what sold us too.
Note: this was sent to me via email from the guest on 5/21/03; they had been on the island to celebrate a daughter's wedding:
We really enjoyed our time in St.Lucia. Your place is wonderful and even now I can conjure up so many images. I used to get up early in the morning before anyone else was awake and make coffee and just sit and watch the sun come up and the early morning movements around the bay. Lucianna's cooking was wonderful and our children played a card game with her daughter which I don't think they ever really understood but had fun! The sounds of the birds at night still linger. And we saw the green flash - twice!
The wedding was perfect and everyone had a wonderful day. However we were glad to take the ferry across the bay back to Poinsettia House afterwards.
Marigot Bay is located about halfway down the island on the Caribbean sea side. It is a natural deep harbor which is ideal for the yachts that sail and motor the island chain - -providing a safe overnight anchorage. Most of St.Lucia, including Marigot, is hilly with the highest peaks being in the center of the island. Approaching the bay from land, one drives through the small village of Marigot and then down a hill to the seaside. A small ferry takes passengers across to the north side (where our houses are located). The crossing takes just a few minutes. There are no roads on the north side.
