Heaven is Right

There was only one problem with our stay at Caille Blanc ,that was...leaving. Our family visited the Villa for seven days over the Christmas break, 2012. We were returning to St. Lucia for the fifth time, having consistently stayed in the Soufriere area. My wife and I find the Pitons an absolutely essential view when staying in St. Lucia. It is said that the three most important qualities in a property are location,location,location. Caille Blanc positively possesses all three.The villa, is located within 30 minutes drive of a number of the "tourist" sights in the area. The beach at Anse Chestnut, is a peaceful 12 minute walk right down the road, however it is the view from the Villa that demands your presence. While we did venture out several times to show our family some of the sights, and also to dine out, it is the Villa itself that provides all one needs to enjoy a peaceful vacation. The staff is present to attend to every wish, with James the driver, Albert as security and Marilyn, tireless in the kitchen, who were standouts. James and Albert in particular were both friendly and full of knowledge on the island, its customs, and ensuring our stay was all it could be.
Each suite of the Villa itself, finished with unique, meticulous detail, displays the vision of Caille Blanc's owner Owen Coleman. Our family spent hours just lounging by the pool and the surrounding treetop pavilion. Meals, presented in the same area, allowed us to never be separated from the pristine view of the Pitons. As I said we dined out twice, which was nice for the family, however there is not a better dining experience to be had ob the island, that compares with a candlelit meal right at the Villa.
As divers we found the close proximity to Scuba St. Lucia a known plus, making the walk down to the beach several times. Bernard the manager and the entire staff at Scuba St. Lucia are always one of the highlights of our visits to St. Lucia.
As we packed to leave and joined James for the hour drive back to the airport we were already contemplating our next visit. The time flew by and as I sit here now, back in the cold of winter, I wonder was it all just a dream? When we return to St. Lucia as I am sure we will, Caille Blanc will be our first choice destination. Owen has set the bar for us, so we send our thanks and best wishes to you all.
