Leave all your worries at home and come enjoy this wonderful tropical cottage. The TREEHOUSE is nestled on a hillside near Anse Chastanet Beach and is a short trip from the old French capital of Soufriere. The TREEHOUSE is a stone and wood cottage on an acre of tropical lushness. It is the perfect place for a honeymoon, relaxing holiday or an extreme adventure vacation. It has one bedroom, one full bath, a fully equipped kitchen, a sparkling plunge pool and a 180' view of the Caribbean Sea that includes the Pitons, St. Vincent, and Anse Chastanet Bay.
Besides providing for all of your needs within the TREEHOUSE, the surrounding area provides unlimited opportunities to truly experience the real St. Lucia. Among the activities are hiking, fishing, diving , snorkeling, mountain biking, kayaking, sailing, mountain climbing, rainforest hike, sunbathing (Anse Chastanet beach is a ten minute walk), botanical gardens, waterfalls, and bird watching (this can be done from the deck of the TREEHOUSE). There is no reason not to have the ULTIMATE TROPICAL EXPERIENCE at the TREEHOUSE.
The small town of Soufriere is only a twenty minute walk from the TREEHOUSE. Many natural places of interest including the Diamond Mineral Falls, Botanical Gardens, Sulphur Springs, the Drive-In Volcano and a few working plantations can all be found in and around Soufriere. In addition, there are grocery stores, bakeries, banks (ATM), a fish market, and numerous restaurants are located here.
Car rentals can be arranged or taxi services are available for drives/tours around the island. A few places to visit include Marigot Bay, Canopy Zip Lines, Rodney Bay/Pigeon Point, Castries and the RainForest.
We wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at the Treehouse. The staff was great--without exception. We appreciated the recommendations in the guestbook as it gave us peace of mind. We visited Gee's a couple of times--great food. We rode with Recardo and Moby Dick--both colorful characters and very pleasant. We hope to return to St Lucia someday and will keep the Treehouse in mind.
This was an amazing place to vacation from the view on the treehouse balcony looking at the twin Pitons to the valley just below it. There are hiking trails behind the treehouse as well as a great short hike to the Anse Chastanet Hotel and the beautiful blue water and sandy beach for some sun or just relax and listen to the waves of the ocean right beside the hotel. The water was so amazingly blue and calming. The food at the Anse Chastanet Hotel was wonderful and the service was great. The locals were all very kind and helpful everywere we went. The sightseeing trips were wonderful and informative from the Forest Tours to the trip to the Volcano. The mineral bath will make you feel ten years younger and make you not want to leave. Everywere you go you can stop and pick fresh fruits as well as a grocery store at the heart of the nearby town. The treehouse is just like a home away from home with all the necessary anamities right at your finger tips. The owner checked on us daily to make sure we were comforable and that we were enjoying our stay. You go to sleep with the sound of the crickets and wake up listening to the birds singing. I highly recommend this place for a first time vacation and for sure repeat visits.
We stayed at this gorgeous property in Saint Lucia in July, 2014. It was incredible! It not only had everything you could possibly need for your vacation, but to go with it... the most relaxed atmosphere, amazing location and the most phenomenal view you could ever imagine! Most properties on this side of the hill are thousands of dollars per night. But not this beautiful Treehouse. The birds would come and sit, the veranda/ deck was delightful, even when it rained! It was true magic this place!!! I can not recommend it highly enough. The photos don't do it justice! We have the fondest memories of this gorgeous treehouse. The staff were so helpful and always around, gardening / cleaning, checking in, etc. They organised us a rental 4wd and we had pick up from the airport from a great driver.
My advice: jump on this place and secure your spot! Well worth it, you won't regret it!!!! 10/10. The best VRBO we have ever stayed in!
Our stay at the treehouse 1 was magnificent! We have never stayed in a place that is open aired and feeling of nature all around you, with the convenience of wifi, a kitchen, and a window unit in the bedroom that keeps you comfortable at night as you sleep.
We enjoyed the company of the treehouse cats, which are not much of a bother as they only really want to be fed. They mostly lay on the balcony and sleep.
Charmaine and Clavie (treehouse driver) was always willing to help and answer our questions as needed. Charmaine is a great cook, she had dinner ready for us when we arrived our first night.
The plunge pool was nice to cool off quickly after our walks into town and to the beach. If you do walk, be prepared for hills since the treehouse sits up high above the town and beach...thats why you have the beautiful view of the pitons!! You will find yourself it awe when you see the pitons from the balcony. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony, staring at the pitons, just absorbing the serene sight of them.
We hiked up to the top of the mountain that the treehouse sits on, what a sight you must see!
If you are a scuba diver, Chester at Action Adventure Divers is the guy you want to see. He is so nice, helpful and wants to make your dives the best they can be. He is very honest and a good guy. He owns the dive shop. And his daughter was adorable and very friendly, she had fun with everyone visiting the shop ;) what a sight under the waves! Beautiful corals and a variety of life you will see.
All in all, staying at the treehouse gave us the opportunity to make long lasting memories for my husband and I and we are so thankful for Sam, Charmaine, and Clavie to help us (and spoil us) to make our vacation go so smoothly.
The Treehouse II location has absolutely breath-taking views of the Pitons. The first time we saw the Pitons from the deck we were awestruck....not only do you get great views from the deck, but also from the pool and from the higher level bedroom. The unit was well-equipped with most every item you would expect to have at home, was clean and well maintained. It is a cottage-like unit so it is a pretty basic interior. We never used the air conditioning in the bedroom while we were there as we preferred to have the deck doors open and the fan going instead and it was fine for sleeping. It did get really warm during the afternoon as the sun beats in to the living area however it was tolerable with a fan running. The pool and area is small but is good to take a dip in and relax and read a book. The landscaping and foliage in and around the property is stunning....well planned and well taken care of. The area is pretty private yet you are only a 5 minute drive into Soufriere or to great beaches. The staff (especially Charmaine) were great and it was nice to have Sam there too - had a great time with you folks! Would definitely recommend the Treehouse II for any couple as we will have wonderful memories of our time in St. Lucia because of this place!!
Sitting on the balcony of the treehouse that overlooks the pitons, sipping local rum, and listening to all the birds perched in the tree that shades the deck while writing this review...
The owners were fantasic with communication. Everything is promptly handled, and Sam responded right away to the baker's dozen worth of emails I sent him. Thanks, Sam.
Charmaine, Alvin, and John keep the house and grounds immaculate. Charmaine even has a meal waiting for you the first night.
This is a perfect paradise stay for couples that don't like the crowds of tourists that you will find at a resort. Grocery stores are a close drive away. They are walkable, however, a car is recommended. Will need driving directions before you drive anywhere as locals give vague details.
As veteran VRBOers, my girlfriend and I highly recommend.
My husband and I stayed at Treehouse II for two weeks in January 2014. The treehouse is a wonderful place to stay, with beautiful lush garden surroundings and a great view of the pitons. Although the road leading to the treehouse is bumpy and twisting, it's worth the ride (we rented a car for the two weeks...be sure to get an automatic, 4-wheel drive. The island's roads are hairpin cliff turns, but the views are amazing. Ask Charmaine for Gina's car rental info. She was great). We spent a lot of time at Anse Chastenet. The snorkeling to the left side was very good. And the little beach to the right, Anse Mamin, is beautiful (accessible by foot path - 5 to 10 minute walk). Sam arranged for a driver to pick us up at the airport (I"m sorry, I forgot his name!) and he had cold beers waiting for us. :-) Charmaine is the housekeeper and she was wonderful. She cleaned daily and often brought fresh fruits. Very helpful, very cheerful. The groundskeepers do a thorough job keeping the gardens and plunge pool nice and clean. Internet connection was very strong - we never had a problem. Our favorite place to visit besides Anse Chastenet was Sugar Beach. Not hard to get to, but again, twisting, winding roads. Be sure to eat lunch at Martha's Table (on the way to Sugar Beach) and have dinner at Orlando's (bottom of the hill toward town from the treehouse). We really enjoyed meeting Orlando and the food and service there are excellent. Also a must: dinner at Dasheens at the Ladera Resort. Make reservations for 7pm but get there before 6pm cocktail hour for an amazing sunset between the pitons. We also splurged on a dinner at Jade Mountain (at Anse Chastenet). Well worth the experience! Our dinner was unparalleled. The only reason we give this rating 4 stars instead of 5 is because we didn't find the locals particularly welcoming and the poverty is apparent. But then again, that's exactly why we like to travel to new places...to experience the "real deal" rather than staying in a secluded luxury resort. The treehouse and all its amenities and staff definitely rate 5 stars. Sam was always prompt with email replies and a pleasure to deal with. We would certainly recommend the treehouse to friends and family. Treehouse I is smaller and doesn't have the view of treehouse II, but it's in a lovely tropical setting and again, the gardens are stunning. You will definitely enjoy your stay on St. Lucia at either of these properties!
