ROMANCE AND RELAXATION IN PARADISE

We had such a nice, relaxing time at Villa Eluna in St. Lucia. The house was big, beautiful and airy. The property was clean and well maintained by a very warm gardener named Ray. Ray brings fresh fruit to the house sometimes, which we used for Smoothies. The cleaning person came every other day to make sure the house was in good order. We didnt need her as much as she wanted to come. She was very flexible as to when she would come to the house, which was perfect for us. We wanted a little extra privacy.
The modern kitchen looked brand new, stainless appliances and marble counters were very nice. There are two very comfortable king beds in two nicely sized bedrooms. The shower in the Master Suite was very big and had dual shower heads.
The house is situated in the perfect spot, its quite Private and then the view is just remarkable. The Piton mountain mountain is right outside of every window and the pool deck. We saw so many spectacular sunsets cascade against this World Heritage Site. We spent a lot of time at the house just relaxing by the pool and cooking at night. The pool was very refreshing to jump into in the middle of the day when the sun was most hot.
We recommend getting the personal chef, Basil to come in and cook some very traditional West Indian food. It was a bit expensive, but worth it! Just make sure you tell him how spicey you like it. We like it hot! We also got a car for one or two days and did some touring around. There is a lot of very lush landscape and beautiful beaches to see. The black sand beach at Anse Chastinet, was very special. We loved the restaurant at the Ladera resort, and the Mango Tree at Stonefield Estates. There is also a helicopter tour thats amazing; book that early it gets booked up quickly. Water taxis are also a great way to get to the North End of the Island. The roads are very windy and if you have a weak stomach you might get a bit woozy in a fast taxi.
There are lots of other things to do, that we will get to next time ;-) We recommend this villa to couples wanting to relax, have a little romance and be away from it all. Sadly were now back to the cold in Upstate New York, though were counting the days till we get back.
