VRBO needs to add more stars! Simply Amazing.
I waited too long to post this review, but I just couldn't come up with the right words to describe, not just what we saw at Les Chaudieres, but what we felt about this place. Everyone’s description of the place was dead on: beautiful, open, airy, clean and far better than the photos. We had such grand plans when we arrived, zip lining, horseback riding, waterfalls, rainforest, volcano, mud baths, touristy sites etc. Other than getting groceries, I think we only left the house twice! We went to see the Pitons/Soufriere and to a nearby beach that had fantastic snorkeling. We had little desire to leave the house – we might miss watching spear fisherman, a cruise ship pass at night or a home cooked meal by Christy or Martina!! The staff was exceptional and made the trip.
We are well travelled folks that enjoy everything from hoity-toity resorts to rustic backpacking, and are always on the go. I cannot believe we barely left the house on an island that has so much to offer. This villa is perfectly located to see it all. We all agreed it was the most relaxed we’ve ever been. The good thing about not going anywhere is that we have many reasons to go back.
For useful information – don’t overpack, Martina will help with your laundry. The bugs were not a problem at the villa in February. You will need a car and an adventurous driver IF you decide to leave the house. Pool is deep and refreshing. Bring treats for the dog and kitty (very well behaved and clean). Read the travelers notebook for ideas and places to go. Take advantage of the wine delivery, we wish we did. We didn’t think we’d drink that much but we would have!!
A couple other things to mention…. We live in the Boston area and were travelling back during Winter Storm Nemo! While I was posting beautiful photos from the house packing to leave, New England was getting hammered with snow. We ended up stranded in Philly – all airports north of PA closed. Jeff kept in close contact with us the whole trip home. He even offered to put us up for the night. We were able to book the very last room at the airport hotel, although I think staying with Jeff would have been more enjoyable. Thanks again for sharing your gorgeous home and genuinely caring that we have an enjoyable and safe trip!
Last but not least…. We miss you Ram!
