Clean, Well Furnished, Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5
We LOVED this apartment! A big positive was it had comfortable furniture, nice wall canvas artwork, and a great bed for two large adults. We are not small people and beds in vacation rentals are always a question for us. We were nervous about this rental, but, we were very happily surprised to find a firm bed with nice pillows. The bedroom and outer living room are separated. The bedroom had a nice closet with space for hanging clothes and a small safe for money and passport storage. The bathroom had a large tub, good water pressure, and adequate hot water. Clean bath towels were furnished. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and the fridge was suitably large. A washing machine was also included. The bedroom was air conditioned and the outer living room was not, however, the outer room is on the east side of the building and out of the sun so it stayed cool with breezes. The plunge is clean, lit, and private with a good size. The apartment is located in a rural setting with nice views looking east, yet, close to Rodney Bay. Security is adequate with a lockable gate and acceptable parking located along an access road. The owners were very helpful and the reservation process was easy. They provided several amenities including an information booklet on local businesses, a local cell phone for our use, and a small TV. Both 240V and 120V power outlets. We were also happy with the rental cost. All utilities included and a very competitive rental cost compared to a hotel. We would recommend this rental for anyone looking for a private experience and those wanting to keep away from the fast pace of a hotel stay. The Gros Islet area and Rodney Bay offer plenty of beaches and water sports activity.

Like being Home!

I was very impressed with the fact that everything was as depicted in the photos. The property is well maintained and Jerome and Marilyn are only a phone call away if you need anything. It was a very private location and I was alone at the apartment by myself as my boyfriend works on the island and I never felt unsafe. Having a washing machine available to use in the unit was great as it was nice to head home with a suitcase of clean laundry as it is hard enough coming back to the cold weather after 80 + degree weather everyday and know you don't have to deal with dirty laundry. The air conditioning in the bedroom was A+ and ws one of the main reasons I rented the location as I am not use to sleeping in the heat. I would recommend this location to people traveling alone or with others. The main roadway is just a 5 minute walk from the apartment and there is a bus stop right at the end of the road should you not want to rent a car. I did alot of cooking while there and found the kitchen well stocked. I can't say enough about this location. RENT IT you won't be disappointed.

So glad we stayed here!

As my husband and I avoid the resorts, this apartment was just what we were looking for!! Karen and Jerome were wonderful when it came to providing us with any island information.The apartment is not directly on the bus route, but a ten to fifteen minute walk will get you there. We had no problems traveling around on the local buses, but to really explore the whole island a rental car would probably be a good idea.The plunge pool is a definite plus to this apartment, as we enjoyed it tremendously during our stay. The apartment was very clean and quiet, lots of tv stations and ac in bedroom made sleeping very comfortable. The fully equipped kitchen made it very convenient for us to prepare meals whenever we chose to. We would not hesitate to stay here again and highly recommend it. It is in a quiet and friendly neighborhood. Highlights for our week's stay was climbing Gros Piton, exploring Pigeon Island, the market in Castries and especially the Jump Up in Gros Islet on Friday night. We hope to come back soon to St. Lucia as there is so much more to do and see on this beautiful and friendly island. Staying at such a nice and enjoyable apartment with such gracious hosts made for a very memorable vacation. Thank you Jerome and Karen!

Perfect property, perfect location, perfect stay

  • 5 of 5
We would echo all of the positives of the other reviews – this truly was an outstanding place. Karen and Jerome were the perfect hosts before and during the trip. The airline lost our luggage and we had difficulties with our rental car as well. Karen was most helpful and gracious to serve as point person for these issues. The kids, Jonas and James, were delightful. Jonas gave us a lovely, hand-painted thank you note for the cap we brought him as a gift from home.

The apartment was lovely, the pool was beautiful, and the location couldn't have been a better home base for our very memorable vacation. We cannot recommend this VRBO enthusiastically enough. You are assured a wonderful visit to St. Lucia.

Thanks for the Memories

  • 5 of 5
As I was booking my vacation to St. Lucia, I wanted to stay away from the "resort life" atmosphere. I am so glad that I chose Karens hilltop apartment! This clean, large one bedroom (which we converted to two) apartment is within walking distance to several areas and attractions, or a short bus ride to Rodney Bay for shopping.My daughter and I took day trips to Rodney Bay , Rodney Bay marina, Pigeon Island, and twice to Cotton Beach. All of these trips were done walking-all good training for our final day when we climbed Gros Piton.The swimming pool was very refreshing after several of these 30C 86F days.
The small cell phone provided prooved very handy throughout the week,(only about 15cts.US per minute) as we booked a taxi a couple of times to do a 4-wheeler tour and to get to Pitons. The quality of this apartment FAR exceeds the price! I was very comfortable the entire week and would definately recommend this place to anybody and everybody who wants great value for their money. Again, I'm happy that I found this beautiful apartment, and Thank You very much Karen and Jerome for being such great hosts and making our stay in St. Lucia an unforgetable one!

Owner's Response: Hi David. It was such a pleasure to host you and daughter. You certainly made the most of your time here and we are pleased you enjoyed your vacation and the apartment. As your review shows it is not necessary to hire a car as many amenities are within walking distance or a short bus ride. Thank you for taking the time to send this review.

Perfect St. Lucia Getaway

  • 5 of 5
What a perfect vacation rental! I don’t even know where to begin. The apartment itself has everything you need to relax, prepare a meal, and watch the sun set! The interior is very well decorated and very clean.

The kitchen has beautiful countertops and plenty of space. The stove works very well and everything needed to cook was there! As well plenty of dishes to serve from / eat off of. I don’t think we ever touched the stash of the local Piton beer that was chilled in the fridge, but the gesture was still very much appreciated.

The open floor plan also has a nice living room / seating area. Cable tv is there if you’d like to watch it.

Oh, must not forget to mention that the US compatible outlets were a great amenity as well. There are some in the kitchen, living room, and bedroom.

The bedroom has beautiful (and comfy) furniture and paintings. Very spa-like. The wardrobe in the bedroom has plenty of space to store your belongings – added bonus with the safe and plenty of hangers to hang all of your clothes. The A/C cools the room down very quickly. For the most part, the ceiling fans in the kitchen and bedroom are sufficient.

The bathroom was also very clean and was thankful that a hairdryer and extra linens were provided.

The view from the patio is absolutely gorgeous in its hillside setting. I’m sure the pool would be great on a warm day. Everything is very well maintained and clean.

The local cell phone that was provided was very convenient and provided a sense of security. The owners were fantastic! They are wonderful people and so incredibly helpful with even the smallest things. I must mention here that we also used the services of Jerome and his water taxi which was the BEST decision we made on the island. A separate review will be added to his Trip Advisor detailing that amazing day.

The Cas En Bas location of this apt is perfect – upscale part of the island, convenient to shopping and beautiful beaches all within a very short distance (we rented a 4x4 to get around). So happy we chose to stay here – no regrets, just complete gratitude for a wonderful stay. In my opinion, a great, economical alternative to the pricey resorts. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.
