The Barefoot Beach Villa is a luxury private beach house on the cliff side of La Toc, overlooking the enchanting Caribbean Sea. Just a mere 7 minute walk away, through beautifully landscaped gardens and exotic trees and orchids, lies a small, secluded snorkeling cove and beach. Then, for the true beachgoers, there is the long, sandy beach of La Toc, just a 5 minute ride away (please note: rides to and from the beach are complimentary and available anytime!)

It is also just a 5-10 minute drive from the capital of Castries, where there is an abundance of restaurants, activities, shopping, and local markets.

About the Villa: The Barefoot Beach Villa is a luxury private beach house on the cliff side of La Toc, overlooking the enchanting Caribbean Sea. The villa features an eclectic design of rustic Caribbean fusion with its cool, coral-walled exterior and the exotic dark-wood interior. The open-wall style architecture lends itself to a peaceful Zen-like flow, not to mention it allows for refreshing sea breezes and wider access to the beautiful view.

Location: Just a mere 7 minute walk away, through beautifully landscaped gardens and exotic trees and orchids, lies a small, secluded snorkeling cove and beach.

Incredible experience

  • 5 of 5

Previous review is correct-- the pictures do not do the house justice! We had just an incredible stay. The locals also call the house "Wild Serenity," and if you stay there, you will know why.

In almost every aspect the house was simply perfect. The housekeeper, Jackie, was completely incredible and went way, way out of her way to take care of us and make us feel welcome. Xavier, the owner, was very helpful to us when we were trying to find the place, and he is somewhat of a celebrity on the Island. Everywhere we went, if we mentioned we were staying at his house, we got the immediate, "Oh, I know Xavier" response.

You'll think that you have take a wrong turn when trying to get there-- the road is a bit in need of maintenance by western standards, but once you arrive, it's incredibly worth it. The location is actually quite,good and convenient.

The pool was great and we had trouble getting the kids out of it to go to the beach. All three bedrooms in the main house are air conditioned, as well as the entertainment/family room.

We fould the architecture to be charming, simple, and yet perfect. The rest of the house can basically be completely opened up to the outside. It would be a great place for entertaining, although we really didn't do that while we were there.

The beach is small, within walking distance, rocky, and the path is just a bit difficult. It's a good beach to snorkel off of, but you'll probably want to go to other beaches. It could be a good place to lay out on, and perhaps read a good book. Not such a great place to play in the water-- rocks and sea urchins.

There ae several other extremely nice beaches within easy driving distance.

We recommend Big Runner taxi service, and Alex's water taxi out of Marigot Bay. Jackie set us up with Big Runner (David) and Oasis Marigot made the Alex connection for us.

Have Jackie cook you a local meal, well worth it, and give Xavier's restaurant, The Coal Pot, a try-- it's wonderful. We didn't make it to his other restaurant in the Rodney Bay Mall, but I'm sure it's great as well.

The landscaping is incredible and I'm sure you'll spend a great deal of time admiring the view.

We would recommend Barefoot Beach highly, highly, highly. I'd give it the highest rating. We found it to be excellent for families; we have three boys, 15, 6, and 3.

Jackie will make you feel welcome and cater to your every need,, and the house will also welcome you with open arms.

This was a great place to stay and the pictures on the internet do not do it justice! The property was clean and well maintained and Xavier and his crew provided excellent customer service! We had dinner at the Coal Pot Restaurant which was a wonderful dining experience and a beautiful location right beside the water. We also recommend dining at the Pink Plantation House, another great culinary experience and the view is also spectacular. We took an all-day taxi tour to Soufriere to visit the Botanical Gardens, the hot springs of the volcano, the Pitons, etc and had lunch at Dasheene which was also wonderful. We didn't rent a car, didn't feel the need to as Bernard (aka "Tree") helped us navigate the bus system and understand how much to pay for a taxi. On the last Friday night, we took the bus to Gros Islet for an outdoor party/BBQ/Seafood feast - most enjoyable. This was our first time renting a vacation property and first time in St. Lucia - both ending up being one of our best vacations ever! We would recommend this to our friends and relatives for sure.

Map

Located just off of La Toc Road, just south of the Capital of Castries. The Barefoot Beach Villa is located just up the hillside from the ocean, only minutes walk to a small snorkeling cove. There is also the La Toc beach just a 5 minute ride away. On the La Toc Beach is also the Sandals Resort, where guests can use their services - such as restaurants, water activities, golf, etc. In Castries, there are plenty of shopping, local markets, activities, and restaurants. The Barefoot Beach Villa is also in relation to the famous Coal Pot Restaurant - so you can even hire a professional chef to personally cater to your group in the villa, or have fresh meals delivered right from the restaurant.

Golf: Can golf at Sandals Resort not 5 minutes ride away.
