About Hilda Shorten

We've been visiting the Caribbean for more than 30 years and having 'discovered' the beautiful island of St Lucia we decided to buy a property there with a view to spending our winters in this warm and friendly island when we retired. We live in Ireland, and when the clocks 'go back' it's wonderful to escape from the cold winter days, and long dark nights.

I (Hilda) am now retired but my husband is still working full time, and as our adult 'children' are working abroad so we're not spending as much time in St Lucia as we would like, and are happy to have other people enjoying this comfortable house and the beautiful island. Our friend Debbie - who lives in St Lucia, 'meets, greets', and looks after our rental guests - she is also Irish, is very friendly, efficient, and helpful. She is very popular with our visitors, and we are lucky to have such a dependable person with lots of local knowledge available to us and to our Guests.

Hilda Shorten purchased this villa in 2006

Why Hilda Shorten chose Cap Estate

It is a home away from home - comfortable and relaxed.

We have gotten to know many locals, who are very 'laid back' and usually stop to say 'Hello' and have a drink at Agnes's bar outside the entrance to Pigeon island when we go there - her husband 'Earl' also collects guests from the airport should they want to have this arranged, and her 'ex-pat' regulars are fun to meet , We became life members of the National Park at Pigeon Island which is about a 20/25 minute walk from the house and is a lovely historic park with two nice secluded beaches, a great value scenic restaurant 'Jamb Du Bois' named after a pirate with a wooden leg, and wonderful views from the Fort at the top. There is a nearer beach beside 'The landings' an exclusive development on the road to Pigeon Island. The main tourist beach is at Reduit in Rodney Bay, and the marina is quite close. The Marina has good restaurants, and is a great place to enjoy an evening dining or just looking at the fabulous yachts from the bay side bars, and you can do a boat trip from there to visit the famous Pitons.

As a person who loves reading I can think of few things more pleasant than lying in the hammock on the veranda with a good book, and if I get too warm I need only step into our own private plunge pool to cool off - as one guest review says 'it's

a little piece of Heaven' and I agree.

What makes this villa unique

In summer the Mango tree at the bottom of our steps is laden with delicious fruit, and in winter, when you sit on the veranda and watch Hummingbirds flit from one Hibiscus flower to another, and when cheeky blackbirds try to join you for breakfast you realize why you like to spend time here - because it's a special place.

Myself and a group of my friends took the house in January of this year. Really enjoyed our time here. The house is close to all the local amentities; beaches, bars, restaurants, the golf course and the jump up (which was brilliant).

The house itself is well furnished, well stocked kitchen and the bedrooms are comfortable, airconditioning was great. The terrace onto the gardens with the swimming pool is a great space to enjoy the climate. I hope to go back soon.

We arrived in the villa in October, a taxi was arranged by the agent for our arrival into the main airport that took us straight to the Villa. I found the Villa to be very spacious with everything we needed. I especially liked the plunge pool as it was very humid and this allowed us to cool down immediately. There was air con in each bedroom and we didnt need to ask for anything from the agent, everything that we needed was in the Villa. I found the beds very comfortable and the villa was very clean and tidy. We had a TV in the sitting room, a telephone for local calls and we also had wifi - this was very handy. We had a great time, the villa was located close by to Roduit and Pigeon Island but it wasnt too close that we were disturbed by any night life, as it was very quiet.

I stayed here in october with my wife and we both had a wonderful time at this villa. It feels very much like home very quickly! It has everything you could possibly need for your stay including wifi, kitchen, tv., etc. the whole place from the villa itself to the garden were in immaculate order. I esecially loved the plunge pool on the veranda. perfect for cooling down day or night. There is also a very well maintained swimming pool. Pigeon Island is walking distance which reaaly is a most beautiful place. Taxis to other places are very easy to get. I absolutely loved this villa and will definitely be staying here again!

We were a group of six adults who all had an excellent time in St Lucia. The villa was lovely and was well equipped and would all go back there at the drop of a hat! Debbie was very friendly and was very helpful when the air conditioning didn’t work one night, she arrived very quickly the next day and it was fixed in no time. Taxis in St Lucia are very easy to get and the drivers and locals are all friendly. Pigeon Island was within walking distance and lovely to go to. We managed to do a boat trip down the West side of the island and went to the Pitons, Sulphur Springs (drive in volcano) had a mud bath, we went to a lovely restaurant and the view was out of this world. On the way back we also stopped off to do snorkelling. Another day we went over to Martinique on a catamaran which was also a good day out. The jump up on Friday nights is also something not to be missed. All in all we wish were back there now!

Owner's Response: Many thanks to the three couples who shared the villa on this occasion for taking the time to write about their holiday.
Its so good to hear that the accomodation worked well and that they enjoyed beautiful
St Lucia so much - they will certainly be very welcome back - having guests return to us is
a great compliment.
Apologies about the blip with the air-con - hopefully getting the prompt attention of an air-conditioning serviceman named Einstein helped to raise a smile.

American family enjoyed recent vacation.

  • 5 of 5
My family spent a month in this property recently, and felt very much at home there. Our three kids made friends, and spent many happy hours playing in the large safe garden (we say yard, but people might get the wrong idea if I say that - its a lovely big mature garden). I even made a swing in a nearby big tree, and enjoyed relaxing on the veranda while still being able to keep a watchful eye on the kids - they had great fun playing in the plunge pool too, and of course, they loved the beaches, and the warm Caribbean sea. They rode horses into the sea at Cas En Bas beach, which was a big highlight. With children (one fairly small) we felt it was necessary to have a car, but adults would have no problem walking to the nearest beach, and for longer journeys there is a plentiful supply of cabs (taxi's), which between a few friends would cost very little. We had been travelling around the Caribbean, and found this villa to be the best for value, comfort, and facilities of anywhere we stayed - an excellent base for a family - indeed it would easily fit two couples with children, or a group of friends, which would be even better value. Our fridge was stocked when we arrived, and Debbie was extremely helpful and friendly, and could be called on if we needed anything. We had a great holiday, and would certainly return. Recommended.

Owner's Response: We are always delighted when our guests - especially long stay - feel they have settled into a 'home from home'. Long flights - busy lives - caring for children - make writing reviews a bother that most people can do without - so many thanks to those who do make the effort - much appreciated.
