Ground floor apartment in small private condominium close to the beach
Our self-catering apartment is in the luxury Cotton Bay Village gated condominium in the north east of St Lucia. Cas en Bas beach is a few steps away through the exotic tropical gardens.
This is a large two bedroom Calabash apartment. It is not to be confused with the smaller two bedroom Tamarind apartments which are also at Cotton Bay Village.
Our ground floor apartment is situated at the edge of the pool and is ideal for a family, or for one or two couples. It consists of a kitchen, sitting room, dining terrace, and two bedrooms. Each bedroom has air conditioning, and its own en suite with shower, WC, and vanity unit. The electrical outlets are British 240 volt standard 3 pin sockets. However, there are two 110 volt US style sockets in each bedroom.
The fully appointed kitchen means that you have the choice of preparing your own meals, or if you prefer you can go to one of the many restaurants in Rodney Bay, which is ten minutes away by car or taxi.
You can cool off in one of the largest pools in St Lucia, or you can take a one minute walk down to the beach and relax there.

Mike’s got a wonderful apartment in a very quiet part of the island. It comes with all the basics and the kitchen is very well stocked with the necessary hardware. My only wish was for a mosquito net over the bed.
Thanks also to Lorna the property manager who was very attentive and took great care of us.
Thank you for your very positive review, and I am glad that you enjoyed your stay in our apartment at Cotton Bay. When I am staying there I always make sure the doors are closed in the evening when the lights are on, and I usually spray the bedroom in the early evening; and I find that I have no mosquito worries. Lorna is a great asset, and she certainly adds value to our unit.
Fantastic holiday accommodation
We really had a wonderful time at Cotton Bay.The villa was superb.We travelled as two couples and we had plenty of space.Because at the moment the resort is being refurbished it was only occupied by the private rentals which meant that we almost had the fantastic pool to ourselves!At the moment there are no shops or bars at the resort due to the redevelopment but there is one restaurant on the nearby plantation beach(Marjories).Rodney Bay is about 15 mins by car.We hired a car for the first week of our three week stay and toured the whole island.What a great experience! If you stay at Cotton Bay the peace and tranquillity are perfect but you need either a car or be prepared to pay for taxis (about 40EC to Rodney Bay).Lorna our property manager was an absolute star! She met us at the villa and showed us everything we needed to know.A local mobile phone was provided loaded with numbers for taxis,herself,emergencyand security.This was really useful. We would definitely recommend Casa Creole.It was simply beautiful and we had a fantastic holiday!
We are really glad that you found everything to your satisfaction, and had a wonderful holiday. You are right - St Lucia is a great experience, with so much to see. You are also right in saying that Lorna is a star. She really adds value to our apartment.
Thank you for your review.

Cotton Bay Village Apt 64 Casa creole 2 bedroom poolside
Excellent getaway property. Quiet location, car recommended, Very clean and well appointed. Beautiful pool. beach nearby, but on the windy side; lots of local atmosphere. The property caretaker, Lorna, was a true gem. Any questions or problems, she was there immediately. A truly caring person. We highly recommend this condo.
Thank you very much for such a positive review. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay in our apartment. You are right – Lorna is a gem.
excellent poolside apartment
We enjoyed a marvellous 4 day stay at this beautiful ground floor apartment. Its situation is magnificent with its own patio so that we could eat out-doors and close by the superb pool. Quiet and relaxing. A real joy to be there and we left relaxed, happy and only wishing we could have stayed longer
Thank you very much for your very positive review. I am pleased that you found everything to your liking at Cotton Bay. I hope you also found St Lucia to your liking, and perhaps will return again in the future.
Best of the Best
We enjoyed our stay in St Lucia and one of the best things about this vacation was the condo we chose. The description was accurate but left a few good things out. Prior to renting I contacted Mike for more information and his response was always timely and valuable. When we needed to change dates, it was not a problem for him and he was very gracious. Choosing a place to stay in an area that is unfamiliar can be daunting but there are many good things about this one. It is away from the crowded tourist areas yet close enough to take part in a variety of activities. As far as this unit goes, the pool is right there to use and enjoy. Went the sun becomes too much, there is a shaded area. The pool is very large and often we had it to ourselves. The beach is just around the side of the unit, a short walk away. The beach is noted for kite surfing and there is always a show to see. To really see any of St. Lucia you must either rent a car or use taxi's. We opted for the latter and found that each and every taxi driver is also a tour guide willing to tell you all about paradise. We discussed history, politics, along with getting information concerning the best things to do in the area. Try going to Marigot Bay, a quaint town on the water and eat at the Chateau Mygo House of Seafood. Take the Endless Summer catamaran cruise and visit the volcano, mud baths , waterfall, banana plantation and enjoy a good lunch and complimentary beverages. Swim or snorkle and have a relaxing day. Don't miss the natural beauty and history of Pigeon Island. There are a lot of interesing things to do on the island and the people are so friendly. Get out and learn. We only had a week and crammed as much in as we could and realize we will have to come back.
Back to the basics of the house. The kitchen was well-equipped and since there were 4 of us and we ate in often this was important to us. Everything was comfortable and clean. We were glad for the air-conditioned bedrooms but that was only needed at night and many folks might not find that a necessity. The breeze off the ocean was wonderful.
I would recommend that if you are arriving from the airport and are tired from your trip and might not want to go out again that you pick up the necessary items you will need from the grocery store on the way up to the condo. The taxi drivers are very understanding and will wait....no meter running.
This condo was a delight and highly recommended by the 4 of us.

Hello M J ,
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your holiday and your time at Cotton Bay. It sounds like you really made the best of your time there.
We love St. Lucia too! As you have said there are lots of things to do. We love the beautiful coves, Marigot Bay, the Pitons and the wonderful, friendly people.
Thank you for your glowing review. We hope that you will be able to return to St. Lucia some time to see more of the wonderful island.
My girlfriend and I stayed in this beautiful condo while visiting St.Lucia for the Jazz festival for the first time. It was a perfect location close to everything.front desk found us a driver who tool us around for a economic cost. I couldn't ask for more when considering staff amenities and overall comfort. we cooked our own breakfast and went grocery shopping at a near by grocery story on occasion we at dinner at the restaurant footsteps away from the condo. I would advise staying at this condo if your look for luxury comfort a great location
Thank you for your review, and we are glad that you enjoyed your stay in our apartment. We look forward to welcoming you back again some time in the future.
St. Lucia is a wonderful holiday destination! The people are cheerful and friendly and love to make tourists very welcome. Temperatures are between 25 and 30 degrees centigrade all the year round and the evenings are warm and pleasant. Beautiful sandy beaches are numerous and the sea is always warm enough to swim in. There’s plenty to see and do and activities are easy to arrange through local agencies. It remains an unspoilt jewel in the Caribbean Sea. Cotton Bay Village is on the north east side of the island on Cas-en-Bas beach. It’s currently the only complex on a very long sandy beach. The bay is safe for swimming and water activities, as it is protected by a reef across the entrance; this also means the sea is normally calm. Cotton Bay is around 10 minutes’ drive from lively Rodney Bay and is reached by a road that goes through the golf course. The village is set in impressive tropical gardens and comprises of stand-alone villas, and apartment blocks around a swimming pool. Each apartment block houses 3 or 4 apartments. The condominium is relatively small, as there are only 72 units in total. Cotton Bay Village is ideal for families or couples. You can just relax around the pool, under an umbrella on the beach, or on your own private terrace next to the apartment. For those that want a more active holiday, you can explore the local bay, swim from the beach or take kite surfing lessons from Cas-en-Bas beach. The cooling breeze on this part of the island makes it ideal for kite surfing. Just a little further afield there’s the 18 hole international standard golf course, and two riding stables. For those that love water-sports, snorkelling, deep sea diving, jet skis, banana rides and boat excursions are easy to organise in Rodney Bay. There is a local bar and casual restaurant called Majorie’s right on the beach at Cas en Bas. If you wish to cater for yourself, there are several very good supermarkets in Rodney Bay, which is a 10 minute drive from Cas en Bas. Rodney Bay, with its beautiful Reduit Beach, is very lively and caters for all tourist needs. There are lots of shops, bars, restaurants, hotels, night clubs, car hire offices and excursion offices. The restaurants cater for all tastes and pockets. You can eat local food, snacks, pizzas, French, Indian, Chinese, Italian and so on. All seem to be staffed by local, smiling friendly people. For those that like to get a real feel for this wonderful Caribbean island, exploration by land or by sea can be easily organized. Boat trips on catamarans and schooners are very popular, as are island safaris in open-topped Jeeps. On the ‘must see list’ are the Pitons and Soufriere, the drive-in volcano, the tropical rain forest and Marigot Bay. If you have any time left over the zip-line over tropical rain forest, the botanical gardens, Pigeon Island and Anse Cochon are well worth a visit too.
