Overview

Castries Quarter Villa Rental Photos and Description

Luxury Family Accommodation With 5/6 Bedrooms And A Games Room

Would you love to live in a house like this, and wake to these spectacular panoramic views every morning? Well you can, if you rent this sensational 5/6 bedroom detached Villa with its own private pool, overlooking the beautiful unspoilt Marigot Bay and its marina. The architect who designed this property ensured almost every room in the property overlooks the fabulous view.

The Villa enjoys year round cool breezes, but on still days, there are ceiling fans throughout and air conditioning in all the bedrooms.

There is a vast open plan living area with cool marble floors, including an exceptionally well equipped kitchen, dining and sitting areas, which are furnished to seat up to 12 people. There are 5 spacious double bedrooms, 4 en-suite with rain dance showers, and a separate bathroom serves the 5th double bedroom, and the two double sofa beds in the Games room.

The Games room will be a hit with the young at heart who can play X box, table tennis, snooker or table football, whilst the less energetic enjoy the outdoor living experience around the pool. Later the youngsters can retire to the TV or play videos, whilst the adults finish off their evening meal in peace on the veranda, overlooking the bay and the spectacular sunset.

During the day you can stay local. Start with breakfast at the French bakery. Wander round the marina looking at the millionaire yachts. Restock with items from the local shops, banks and mini mart. Call in at the office and arrange scuba diving, fishing, sailing, whale watching or a water taxi trip. Relax on the sandy spit, snorkel the reef or perhaps hire a pedalo. Return later to enjoy a meal at a local restaurant or a drink at the bar, watch the sun go down and swop stories with the sailing fraternity.

Alternatively there is a wealth of activities and places to see all over the island, which the local manager will discuss with you on arrival, always knowing that your stunning villa awaits your return at the end of the day, when you can cool off with a swim and a drink, whilst you decide what to do with your evening ahead.

This property is ideal for honeymooners who want time and space to themselves in privacy, wedding parties, family reunions, business conventions or simply 2 or 3 families wishing to holiday together. Whoever you are, this is somewhere where you can enjoy yourselves without being worried about disturbing the neighbours.

About Chris Beeching

Hello, our names are Chris and Liz. We are just an every day couple, who had a dream to take our young family out to live on a Caribbean Island. I was a house builder in the UK, and Liz was a lawyer, so it seemed logical to spend some of our time building what is now our holiday home. We call it rather unimaginatively Bay View Villa, but when you look at the view, you will see why.

In the early years the children attended a local school, but as they grew older, we knew we would have to come back to the UK to finish their education. We get back there as often as we can in the school holidays, as the children still love it. When not there, we often catch ourselves wondering what everybody is up to in Marigot Bay. As we cannot be there all the time now, our beautiful home awaits you, to come and enjoy it in the same way as we do.

We have been lucky to accumulate a number of properties in the UK which we rent out, so we are well versed in the practice. We are also very fortunate to have Pauline and Cornelius to look after the property in our absence. Before they met, Cornelius skippered Charter Yachts all over the world for 30 years, and Pauline was a qualified fitness instructor. Between them they speak English, French, Italian, Spanish and a little German. They live and work in the Bay with their two children, and amongst other things, they manage several other properties, so they are never far away if you need them. They are extremely well organised and professional. They will welcome you to Bay View Villa, show you how the house works, talk to you about things to do and places to see, and attend to any maintenance issues should they occur.

Meanwhile I will give you lots of information before you go, and make sure you get to Bay View by taxi or car hire without getting lost.

Between us we will all look after you, and make sure you have a wonderful time.

Go on try it, but be careful, you’ll fall under the magic that draws us all back there again and again.

Chris Beeching purchased this villa in 2005

Absolutely fabulous villa with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

The villa was everything we had hoped for and more. It was extremely well equipped, the views were stunning and the pool was fabulous.

We loved snorkelling at Anse Cochon and Anse Castanette and Sugar Beach. We also visited the cocoa plantation which was very family friendly, followed by gorgeous Piton Waterfalls.

I would thoroughly recommend staying here.

Amazing Views - Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 8 people that stayed at the Bay View Villas in July 2016. Every one of us was thrilled with the villa. With all the room in the house to relax, eat or just enjoy the scenery outside there was never an issue with the size of our group. The wonderful dips in the pool as it was 85 and humid every day and all the boats coming and going was always very interesting to watch.

Chris and Liz do a great job with keeping in contact with you before your trip and all the tips and information they send prior to the trip is very helpful. We did not rent a car and used a taxi for 8 of us the whole week while we were there. The taxi driver was set up by Pauline the caretaker for the villa before we left so there were no issues with us having a driver to the villa when we arrived at the airport in St Lucia. The driver also stopped at the local grocery store before we got to the villa which was very helpful for our group.

When we arrived Pauline was there to greet us along with showing us around the house.

We enjoyed many excursions while we were there. We enjoyed a tour with CoSol Tours which is mainly a Cruise line tour around St. Lucia but we were able to book it as well. The tour stopped at a banana plantation, the owner of the tour’s house for a breakfast, sulfur hot springs, waterfall swimming, continued on to Soufriere, saw the Pitons, rode on a glass bottom boat to Sugar Beach where we stayed for a while to swim and relax. We also went on the gondola rainforest ride, zip-lining through the rainforest and did some hiking. Cornelius set up a Catamaran tour to Rodney Bay and lastly we went to Castries to the open market for shopping. We enjoyed meals at Doolittle’s, Chateau Mygo and Rainforest Hideaway. They were all very good.

If you are looking for adventure, relaxation, swimming and amazing views, this is the place for you!!

The Perfect Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to stay in this beautiful home for a week with friends. Wow!!! The views are beautiful, the location above Marigot Bay is perfect, and the caretaker (Cornelius) will fulfill your every need. If you have a chance, let Chef Joel and Sharon cook a meal for you at the house. You won't be sorry if you book this delightful property!

Luxurious Villa location for our second honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fabulous holiday in St Lucia and feel wonderfully rested and restored. This was in very large part due to Bay View Villa, its position, its amenities, its cooling breeze and its wonderful peace and tranquillity. We cannot recommend it more highly.

We were met on arrival by Pauline and Cornelius, a delightful couple who showed us where everything was and were a source of knowledge for anything and everything. Marigot Bay is a delightful picturesque bay, popular with visiting yachts, and has its own picture-perfect little beach complete with palm trees, bars and restaurants. However, we enjoyed simply looking down on it from our spectacular position high above the sea, chilling peacefully beside our own large pool, glass in hand!

We loved St Lucia too, with its happy-go-lucky, chilled out style and heavenly temperatures. Even the regular showers didn’t interfere with anything for long, simply cooling things down momentarily and keeping the island green and lush.

We used our hire car to do some exploring around the island, but most frequently went north to Castries and Rodney Bay, enjoying the many excellent restaurants (for which Cornelius was a great source of recommendations.)

There are many, many boat trips available but we enjoyed the luxury of a personal hire with Cornelius, who is a skilled boatsman and who took us on 2 trips, the first (a half day) when he took us snorkelling (our first time!) and provided us with all the equipment and tuition, which was brilliant. The second trip was a full day including snorkelling, lunch in Soufriere, more snorkelling and of course a private guided tour of all the bays and beaches stopping wherever we wanted, along the way. Perfection - and all at a very reasonable price.

So, all in all, a great success – but the star of the show was Bay View Villa - and we loved it so much that we are already booked in to return next year - for our third honeymoon!

Fantastic villa with breathtaking bay view

  • 5 of 5

The villa was perfect for our family holiday to celebrate my Dads 70th - our party included his 3 grandchildren aged 2, 3 and 7 months. It was extremely well equipped, spacious and airy with the most amazing views. The pool was the source of many hours entertainment for all ages - perfect to cool off in! We had many a pleasant evening grilling fresh fish and jerk chicken on the BBQ, whilst chilling out on the terrace.

Location wise, having the restaurants, coffee shop / bakery a few minutes down the hill in Marigot Bay was great. The kids absolutely loved catching the little boat across to the beach and spent many an hour digging in the sand and splashing in the sea. A favourite pastime for the adults was watching the sun go down over the bay whilst enjoying an ice cold Pieton beer!

We also ventured into Castries on a number of occasions to buy fresh fish from the local market and used the opportunity to stock up on herbs, spices and fruit and vegetables.

In summary, a fantastic holiday would certainly recommend Bayy View VIlla. It is worth noting that Chris (the owner) provides the most detailed local information to help you, and then whilst in St Lucia, Pauline and the team will look after you amazingly well!

Best Location, house and view on the island!

  • 5 of 5

Bayview Villa was more than we expected, and from the pictures we saw and service we received leading up to our stay, we were expecting a lot! The views are absolutely breathtakingly phenomenal - the pictures shown on the websites just can't do it justice. Chris, Pauline, Cornelius, and everyone else couldn't have been better. They were friendly, prompt, and helpful with whatever we needed.

We traveled all up and down the west coast of the island and we are quite sure that we picked that Marigot Bay and Bayview Villa are the best and most beautiful (by far) spot on the island. The house was immaculate and comfortable for 2 people or 12 people.

We are already discussing a return trip, which we will be squeezing in between other vacations - we just loved it that much!

Also, there are some great restaurant selections in Marigot Bay, so you don't have to go far if you don't want to.

Car: recommended

Marigot Bay has been described as one of the most beautiful bays in the Caribbean. It is visited by yachts everyday because of its safe anchorage and well equipped marina, along with its shops restaurants and bars. The marina has provided many jobs for the locals who therefore appreciate the value of tourists. In the evenings locals, tourists and ex-pats can be found everywhere enjoying each others company, which makes for a happy and safe environment. Marigot Bay is a perfect mix of unspoilt beauty and quality development. There is plenty of parking, and the roads are quiet. There is a taxi rank, and the buses run from the main road. It is recommended to hire a car for a few days of your holiday at least, to give you the freedom to explore and enjoy this wonderful island.
