Beautiful Villa !!! Amazing View !!

  • 5 of 5
We,2 couples rented the lower level of the Villa,using 2 of the 3 bedrooms.The home is exactly as the pictures show...absolutely gorgeous!Bedrooms are large w king size beds and mosquito netting,one bedroom has an ensuite bathroom,and there is large main bathroom.The kitchen is well stocked, there is a huge table for dining at..furniture is all new.There are lots of towels, beach towels as well, so need to take your own.

The pool is good for cooling off in,as it gets very hot laying on the pool chairs when the sun is shining.Carlos is always cleaning the leaves out of it, so it was lovely and clean.You can not see homes from here, but there are none right beside the Villa, so you have lots of privacy.We could hear the music at night from the bars down in Marigot Bay though because it was so quiet.

We had dinner one night at Doolittle's,and another at Chateau Mygo, both were very good. We had a rental SUV, so we drove down and back..you could probably walk down if you didn't have a vehicle, but you would probably want to take a taxi back up if you were coming back up at night. There is a BBQ, and briquettes at the villa if you wanted to BBQ there.

The landscaping is beautiful, and Carlos is always working on it, keeping it maintained. The view from the Villa is stunning...looking down on Marigot Bay, and out to the ocean.

We went to Ti Kaye beach to snorkel one day, and this was a great decision, as the current does not try to pull you out, and the water is fairly shallow to snorkel in. We saw lots of fish, the beach is nice..not much shade though..there is also a bar, of course, to get drinks and food. I had a Rum Punch there at Happy Hour..2 for 1...wow !! lots of rum in that drink !! Ti Kaye was about a half hour away, well worth the drive.

We also went to Castries one afternoon to the Market, and dinner..it is probably about a half hour the other direction.

There are a set of binoculars in the Villa, which was nice for looking at the ships and sailboats on the ocean, and dice and Yahtzee score pads so you can play a game in the evening if you want.

I will say that if you are not getting picked up by the owners or Carlos, that I would suggest that you not try to navigate the road up there with a car. We were driving a small SUV, and we were happy we were..parts of the road are quite steep, have large potholes and rocks.When we went, there was no sign at the Villa, but will probably have one by now.

I would highly recommend it !

Best Place to Stay in Marigot Bay!

  • 5 of 5
Where do I begin? Villa Makambu, Marigot Bay and St Lucia exceeded every expectation during our 8 day stay. Villa Makambu was finished ~December 2011, so we were some of the lucky first guests. We also had an opportunity to meet Pascale (owner) and her friend while we visited and formed a lasting friendship with them. Rest assured you are doing business with amazing, truly one of a kind people. Pascale and her husband Franz live in Canada, but travel down to St Lucia quite often.

Villa Makambu has 2 buildings that share a pool between them. Building A (for the sake of conversation) has 2 levels that are rented out for guests while building B is where ‘Carlos’ stays full time. Carlos is a native Lucian that takes care of the property. He is also available for boat tours around the island. He offered to drop us off/pick us up at private beach, or have an ‘all day’ tour with multiple beaches, snorkeling, shopping, you name it. He asks what you want to do, and makes it happen. It was so nice having Carlos around, because he knows the island and the people inside and out. The people of St Lucia are EXTREMELY friendly, but it was nice having Carlos as your ‘tour guide’ as he is very respected on the island. Pascale and Franz are lucky to have him.

Villa Makambu: We knew it would be nice, but we were amazed at the level of detail that was put into this property. Easy to see that Franz and Pascale are in the construction industry back in Canada. We stayed on the upper-level of ‘Building A’ and I would highly recommend this (if it is available). The views from the upper level are spectacular, and you have an additional ‘loft’ area that has a sitting area, tv and bed. Our villa had a full kitchen that we stocked with food from the local grocery store (we were shocked to see how ‘American’ the grocery options were). There are 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (that include gorgeous walk-in showers), tv area and a huge balcony complete with furniture. Not a detail was spared. Each bedroom had large doors that opened up to Marigot Bay. The doors and built-in cabinets are all made from local wood. There is a shared, saltwater pool that was always quiet. We never felt like we needed more space from Carlos or the other guests (lower level). Carlos gave us plenty of space during our stay, but was there when we needed him.

I could go on...

Thank you Pascale for all the great memories. I already have recommend Villa Makambu to friends. We hope to be back soon!
