Our First Anniversary!: My wife and I just celebrated our 1st anniversary at Nature's Paradise - it was perfect. If you are looking for secluded yet spectacular accommodations this is it. Nature's Paradise is a hill top paradise above the prettiest bay in St. Lucia. It is secluded, yet close to 5 of the most popular restaurants on the island. 'Nature Dave' & his lovely wife Wanda are gracious hosts. We had one of their cottages to ourselves for 1wk (private decks overlooking the coast-the photos don’t lie). Morning swims surrounded by their beautiful, lush tropical gardens, it was the perfect place to 'escape'. Dave is a wealth of island information & provides personal tours of the island- we did one and it was great. Nature's Paradise provided us with the ideal setting to experience the beauty of the Caribbean & the treasures that St. Lucia has to offer. We would stay at Nature's Paradise again in a heartbeat. Dan Saltarelli, Cincinnati, Ohio

Breathtaking!: Dear Dave and Wanda, I can’t say enough about your warm and enthusiastic hospitality. My visit to St. Lucia was greatly enhanced by both your personality and spirit. That in addition to the infinite knowledge you both possess about the region made my experience fulfilling. Avocado House is uniquely comfortable and private. The main house and pool are equally original in their design. The flora is breathtaking and the views of the Caribbean and the Rousseau Valley leave me speechless.

Adam Bernstein, New York

A Special Romantic Hideaway!: Our home away from home for 1 week was Nature's Paradise in Marigot Bay, St. Lucia. We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay. Our hosts, David and Wanda Wallace saw to it that all our needs were taken care of. We stayed in the Banana Cottage which had a great view of the Caribbean Ocean. This was our first time in St. Lucia so we didn't have a clue about what to see and do. David was very helpful in suggesting activities, restaurants, and tours. His personal tour offered to us was fantastic. He knew just where to go and was a pluthera of information concerning St. Lucia and its history and background behind every place he took us. We would recommend Nature's Paradise to anyone wanting a special romantic hideaway.

Guestbook comments from the owner
My wife and I just celebrated our 1 year anniversary at Nature's Paradise- it was perfect. If you are looking for secluded yet spectacular accommodations at reasonable pricing, this is it. Nature's Paradise is a hill top bed and breakfast above the prettiest bay in St. Lucia. It is secluded, yet close to 5 of the most popular restaurants on the island.



"Nature Dave" and his lovely wife Wanda are most gracious hosts. We had one of their 2 cottages to ourselves for one week (private decks overlooking the coast-the photos dont lie) and were treated to a wonderful and relaxing breakfast each morning. Morning swims surrounded by their beautiful, lush tropical gardens, it was the perfect place to "escape". Dave is a wealth of island information and even provides personal tours of the island- we did one and it was great. You will need to rent a jeep to get around, after all, you are on a volcano bed and it is rough terrain. Nature's Paradise provided us with the ideal setting to experience the beauty of the Caribbean and the treasures that St. Lucia has to offer. We would stay at Nature's Paradise again in a heartbeat.

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 and Wanda Wallace purchased this cottage in 2002

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?

LOST IN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
This was a truly beatiful vacation in everyway. It was quality time with my boyfriend (of 5 years) and we could not have picked a more perfect place. What a beautiful view and the gardens are so lush. The cottage was first class, good shower, full kitchen, 4 poster bed. The pool was way big, with more stunning views of the ocean. Wanda's breakfasts were good and different and the coffee was strong. I think were going to get married right here.

ROMANTIC PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
We chose Nature's Paradise as we wanted somewhere romantic to celebrate our anniversary and it certainly lived up to that, being perched above the Carribean with beautiful views, exotic wildlife but still accessible to the town of Marigot Bay. Our hosts, David and Wanda were marvelous and looked after us really well, showing us round the island and genuinely interested in us having a great time. We had great views from the veranda and the swimming pool. Breakfast was always a treat for me with different varieties of local fruit and great conversation. We had a wonderful time and would recommend it as a location, especially for those seeking a romantic place to get away to.

GREAT GETAWAY!

  • 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 12/23/13 – 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. on St. Lucia. My husband and I are very honored to have been able to get to know both David and Wanda as they are not just great hosts, but special people.

I can’t recommend St. Lucia or Nature’s Paradise enough!! Go!

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.

* Marigot Bay has a terrific beach. Our Main House and Cottages are set high on a hill for great views, so walking down to the beach is about 15 minutes, walking back up takes longer. The famous La Bas Beach is on the north side of the bay, there are no cars or roads. You go by ferry which runs 24/7. The boat ride is about 2 minutes and is fun. There are 4 good restaurants and 2 great restaurants on the bay. *** The nearest town is Castries, which is the capital of St. Lucia. It's about 25 minutes by car. There is often live music at the restaurants around Marigot Bay. Anse La Raye, the next town, has a great block party called Seafood-Friday. Anse La Raye is a fishing village that has retained its character.

This is an adventure you won't forget.

Other Activities: We encourage activity! We have some of the best Scuba Diving in the Caribbean and great Snorkeling; There are water sports on Marigot Bay. Go hiking in the Rain Forest; Horseback Riding on the beach; Restaurants with great food in lovely settings; Sightseeing by car; Boating galore; Swimming in the warm Caribbean Sea; Sun Tanning (be careful); Bird-watching, see the rare St Lucian Parrot etc, etc. There is so much to do.

Or you can do nothing at all. At Nature's Paradise there is a beautiful pool with a wood deck and comfortable lounges. Lay back, enjoy the sun and read a book.

Natures Paradise is a hill-top B&B above the prettiest bay in St. Lucia. It is secluded yet close to 5 of the best restaurants on the island. We had BANANA COTTAGE to ourselves & were treated to Tropical Breakfast each morning. Dan & Sue, London UK
