The villa we stayed in was beautifully decorated. Everything had a personal touch and feel unlike hotel rooms which seem so uniformed in their presentation. The villa felt private and safe but also luxurious and comfortable. It had a nice sized living room and kitchen. There was also a market within a short skip that you could get fresh produce, meats, breads, etc. So if you had the desire to cook the kitchen was at your fingertips.
The bedrooms and baths were clean and nice. The decor really gave you the sense of being in a tropical part of the world. The cool breeze that circulated through constantly was also a pleasant reminder of how nice it is to be in paradise.
If you wanted to feel like you were at your home away from home in terms of electronics, TV, internet, etc this unit was up to speed. As listed in the description it has everything you need to keep in touch with the outside world. If you prefer to keep everything turned off and just enjoy breakfasts on the balcony and lunches at the local restaurants, then this is also the way to go!
The proximity to the malls and shops was also a huge plus as if you didn't want to prepare your own food, you could walk to and grab food from the restaurants around the malls. The popular steakhouse, international restaurants, and fan fare were all represented, however, the tastiest food for the best price came from the restaurants established by the locals that served food for...the locals. You would probably not venture out of a hotel or all inclusive resort to get this type of local food, so one of the best things of the stay at the Indigo Pearl Properties was the immediate access to the street vendors and the restaurants serving the local food of the country.
The villa is close to the beach and is practically right on the marina. There are so many things to see and explore that renting a car is almost a must. However, with so many sights and sounds all around you it would be easy just to keep on foot and soak it all in. Renting a car from BEEZ Rentals, the recommended vendor on the Indigo site, was a breeze. They were kind and polite and brought a clean and well kept car for us. Driving on the other side of the road is a little different, but not too tough.
With so much to see and do you can't go wrong with picking St. Lucia for a vacation destination. If you end up deciding on going there give this villa serious consideration over hotels and resorts, you cant go wrong.
Tourists without a Car,
