Overview

St Lucia Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 6 Bedrooms, 6.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Beau Rivage is a luxurious ocean view gated home, located on approximately two acres situated in a gently sloping garden overlooking the Caribbean Sea and within a 400 yard walk of Anse du Cap beach. Beau Rivage is part of the Cap Estate development, an exclusive planned community located on the northern side of the island. We are the only 5 Star 6 bedroom/bathroom rental villa in exclusive Cap Estates and one of few villas within walking distance of the beach (a short 5 minute walk); a double bonus when planning destination weddings, extended family vacations or special occasion events.

Beau Rivage is also one of the most 'child friendly' villas on island, offering two portable cribs, a trundle bed, a playpen, a high chair, and custom made baby gates on our main veranda at no additional charge for up to 14 guests.

In our high season (from Dec. 15 - April 15) we offer four bedroom rates at $1000 USD per night, five bedroom rates at $1250 per night, and six bedroom rates at $1500 USD per night, inclusive of taxes and staff. Regardless of the number of bedrooms rented, these rates include exclusive use of our property. In the off-season (April 16 to Dec. 14), our four bedroom rate is $800 USD per night, our five bedroom rate is $1000 USD per night, and our six bedroom rate is $1200 USD per night, also inclusive of taxes and staff. We also occasionally offer one, two and three bedroom rental rates, depending on the dates requested. Since the new 'Instant Quote' system offered to potential guests by HomeAway/VRBO does not allow guests to include the number of bedrooms they are interested in renting, guests are cautioned that these quotes may be inaccurate and that the owner will provide a final quote using the above rates once the number in the party and the number of bedrooms required has been determined.

Our villa is a gated property with an expansive circular drive that takes you to the entrance of the main house, which is tiled throughout with elegant travertine marble tile imported from Turkey. The large entry foyer leads into an expansive open plan living/dining room and kitchen, which opens onto a spacious veranda having ocean and garden views. The large gate, elegant entry and circular drive is perfect for large functions such as weddings and birthday celebrations.

Upon arrival at Beau Rivage, you will be greeted by Kris, our property manager who lives off-site only minutes from our property. Kris provides fantastic personalized services, to include arranging for airport transportation, activities, grocery shopping, etc. Kris can also arrange to have groceries at the villa and there awaiting you upon your arrival for a small additional charge.

Included in our price we offer two full-time cooks/housekeepers who will prepare two meals a day six days a week, as well as provide daily maid service. Our staff will share their wealth of local knowledge during your stay and are wonderful with families having small children.

Beau Rivage, which was completed in March 2007 and is one of the newer villas on island, consists of a four bedroom main house and a two bedroom guest cottage, located in a lush tropical garden setting built around the pool, swim-up pool bar and spa. The total living space is approximately 6000 square feet.

The living room boasts a large sectional sofa, with a 65 inch screen TV. The surround sound stereo system complements the DVD/CD players and IPOD docking station. With a three-zone speaker control system, guests can play their favorite music in the living room, on the veranda, and at the pool Tiki bar, or even set the mood for a romantic, champagne evening in the spa. Guests are encouraged to bring their favorite music to play on the IPOD docking station or the CD player through speakers which have been installed in the main living area, the outdoor deck and pool bar. Access to the owner's DVD/CD/Book library is available to villa guests free of charge.

All of the bedroom/bathroom suites in the main house and cottage are air-conditioned with optional ceiling fans throughout the villa. Central air condition in the main living area, which is normally not necessary, is also available at an additional charge.

The main dining area can seat 10 people and the adjacent kitchen is fully equipped with two dishwashers, toaster, coffee maker, blender, dual-ovens, wine chiller, five burner electric stove, four burner gas stove and Sub-zero refrigerator.

Guests can enjoy the view and the cool tropical breezes from the spacious veranda which is situated off the dining/living rooms and which overlooks the pool area. This veranda is equipped with comfortable chairs for relaxing and also with two tables where up to 8 persons can enjoy al fresco dining. The veranda also has custom made baby gates which are wonderful for toddlers.

In the main house, the three, fully air-conditioned downstairs bedrooms are each furnished with a queen size bed. Each of these bedrooms have an en-suite bathroom, and two of these bedrooms have a private patio overlooking the pool.

The master bedroom is situated upstairs from where guests can enjoy a sea view from their private patio. This bedroom is equipped with a 42 inch plasma TV, a DVD player, an IPOD docking station and surround sound system. The master bedroom boasts a luxurious king-size bed, with the finest of Egyptian cotton linen. A spacious walk in closet, en-suite bathroom with a shower and a large Jacuzzi tub, complete this private romantic 'Honeymoon Suite'.

The cottage is located across the garden from the main house. Guests enter the cottage through a large shared patio which opens through separate French doors into two over-sized separate air-conditioned bedroom/bathroom suites which are even larger than the guest rooms in the main house. There is a lovely spacious, king-size bed 'honeymoon' type bedroom/bathroom suite in one of the cottage rooms. The other spacious cottage suite has two queen size beds and a spacious en-suite bathroom. Views of the ocean, garden and pool can be seen from the cottage patio.

The attractive pool area has a wide pool deck equipped with 14 loungers for sun worshippers and a charming thatched roof provides shade for the swim-up bar area which is equipped with a sink and ice maker. The 31 foot pool is complemented by a swim up bar with six swim-up bar stools and a spa pool, situated at a higher level. A soothing waterfall overflows into the main pool from the spa.

For an additional charge of $100 USD, guests at Beau Rivage upon request will be provided with two passes to the gym at the world renowned Oasis Spa located at the Le Sport Hotel situated just a few minutes walk from the villa. These two passes, which are under the name of the villa, can be used daily by any two guests at a time throughout their stay. Treatments at the spa such as massage, facials, etc can also be arranged for an additional charge. Use of the owner's private gym, located on the premises adjacent to the pool, for liability reasons, is not included in the rental of the villa.

This is truly a world class destination designed for the discriminating traveler with spas, golf, night life and elegant restaurants all within a short distance of your private garden villa.

Beau Rivage is less than 1/4 mile from the St. Lucia Golf and Country Club. This beautiful golf course offers reasonable greens fees and a brand new clubhouse where daily meals are served at the restaurant and bar. (Click below links for more information about St. Lucia Golf and Country Club).

About Sue Chainer

My husband, Dave, and I were married in Jamaica 24 years ago and have been traveling/sailing throughout the Caribbean ever since. Then, in 2001, we were posted as U.S. diplomats at the U.S. Embassy in Bridgetown Barbados where we lived and worked throughout the Caribbean for six years. During this time, we kept our 41 ft. sailboat at Rodney Bay Marina in St. Lucia, one of the best marinas in the Caribbean, and fell in love with St. Lucia; and the sailing, hiking, diving, golfing, and natural beauty of this island nation. In 2004, we purchased land in St. Lucia and began building our lovely dream villa from the ground up. Our villa was completed in March 2007, and it is absolutely fabulous, actually better than we ever dreamed. We rent the villa for no more than 26 weeks per year, and vacation there the rest of the time, personally ensuring that our villa is impeccably maintained. We hope you will love our villa as much as we both do. It is a terrific Caribbean getaway which has lots of activities for all ages. We hope you will choose our villa for the perfect Caribbean dream vacation. Our staff (which has become part of our extended family) is wonderful and will ensure that your family experiences a most memorable St. Lucian holiday.

Sue Chainer purchased this villa in 2006

Why Sue Chainer chose St Lucia

As former U.S. diplomats assigned to the Caribbean, my husband and I had the luxury of traveling on business and vacation to almost every Caribbean nation/territory throughout the Caribbean. As a result of this experience, we found St. Lucia (a former British territory which is now an independent nation) to be one of the most beautiful Caribbean islands. As Oprah Winfrey once said, St. Lucia is one of the 10 places everyone must visit before they die. Once you visit this beautiful island nation, you will know why St. Lucia has been consecutively designated for years as the number one honeymoon destination in the Caribbean. It is truly a very unique and romantic island paradise.

Beau Rivage - St. Lucia "Perfect Family Home"

  • 4 of 5

I can only say Beau Rivage is the perfect home for a family vacation. Only thing we were missing is our personal bar tender (lol). We were a group of 12 on different days and we never felt crowded. My husband and my daughters choose to stay in the cottage (2 - 1 bedrooms with private baths), loved it. The rest of the family were in the main house, which is beautiful. House Staff is good, Fedora has to warm up to you, but she is great!!! Both she and Olga went out of their way to make my son's 40th birthday exceptional, from doing a special floral bed arrangement to birthday signs/banners.

I suggest you pay for the air condition for the main house if you rent during the summer time. It would be well worth it. Other than the mosquito bites, we had a blast. Oh and Sue the owner of the property is the best. Super helpful with suggestions on activities. Oh and I forgot, you are able to purchase a day pass at LesSport (next door), OK maybe not exactly next door, 5 min. walk; a must!!!! We did on our last day and it just finished out our wonderful vacation. Thanks Sue for the information.

Our family would definitely come back.

Owner's Response: Thanks, DeLease, for taking the time to write such a great review. We are so glad your son had a wonderful 40th birthday celebration and that you enjoyed our staff. I am also glad you enjoyed Le Sport. One of the reasons we chose our location is because of all the great amenities, restaurants, spa services and entertainment available at Le Sport. All the privacy of your own ocean view villa with all the amenities of a nearby world-renown resort only a five minute walk away. As one of the few villas in St. Lucia that offers central air conditioning in the common areas, I also appreciate you recommending that option to our guests. With the weather in St. Lucia never ranging below 82 and 89 degrees, our guests normally do not need air conditioning in the common areas but it is great to have as an option on those few summer days when it is a bit warmer. We look forward to having your family come back and appreciate you recommending our villa as the perfect family vacation. Warmest regards, Sue

Great Place for a Family GetAway

  • 5 of 5

I rent a house for a family of 10 every Thanksgiving week in the Caribbean . Ages range from 72 to 2. This year we chose St Lucia and we were thrilled with the island and, especially with Beau Rivage.

The accommodations were lovely with 4 bedrooms in the main house and two in the guest house. There was a large outside area above the pool which our family enjoyed every night after a most delicious dinner prepared by Olga and Fedora. We loved St Lucian food and they never did disappoint.

Fedora picked Golden Apples for our juice ever morning for breakfast. We could not wait. And Olga's Fried Bakes were the best.

The pool area was truly one of the best we have ever had and we have been going to the Caribbean every year since 2003. The kids had to be dragged out of the pool every day. It was really great!

You will need a taxi to get around. We used George for the week. He was always dependable, informative and pleasant. From Zip Lining, shopping to beaches and restaurants, he was just terrific.

Working with Sue to secure the rental was a pleasure and I so thank her for all the input. I highly recommend Beau Rivage to anyone seeking a beautiful spot to just relax and enjoy a peaceful week.

Fantastic Girls Getaway 2015

  • 5 of 5

10 ladies enjoyed a fantastic Girls Getaway at Beau Rivage. This was our 9th year of getaways and we were not disappointed with this beautiful home with a fantastic view, amazing pool area and covered deck which we sat out on every night. Great location for visits to Pigeon Island and going to town. The staff were very accommodating and we Loved Fedora! She went out of her way to ensure we were taken care of. LeSport and the Naked Fisherman were a five to ten minute walk and provided entertainment and beach fun. Thanks Sue for sharing your amazing paradise home with us!

Great location for vacation and wedding

  • 5 of 5

We had our wedding at Beau Rivage and stayed for 9 nights. We had 7 guests who stayed for a week. It was a great size. We had our wedding ceremony and reception on site and it was wonderful. The photos on the website were reflective of actual - no surprises. It was as beautiful as the photos shown. Sue was easy to work with and very helpful prior and during with answering a lot of questions about the villa, St Lucia, and wedding planning. We haven't been to SL before and she and Kris (house manager) made the planning much easier. The house manager/concierge, cook and housekeeper as part of the rental were great add's and one of the reasons we picked Beau Rivage compared to other villas. Very convenient to get recommendations for tours, restaurants, have reservations made, transportation arranged, and 2 meals cooked per day. We did a catamaran and rainforest tour and most nights ate in the Rodney Bay area. Would recommend the catamaran tour to all. For the first night, we arrived in the evening and took the option of grocery pre-stocking and a meal cooked so we just had to heat up and relax that evening. I'd recommend it. All the staff was helpful to prepare for the wedding. They helped with decoration, partnered with the wedding planning services and catering restaurant to coordinate. We had the wedding on the deck and it was beautiful. We were also able to get to the nearby beach for additional wedding photos. The location was also the perfect size for a reception for a party of 9. It was convenient and less stressful to have everything from make up and getting dressed to ceremony, reception/party right there without having to travel. It also kept the schedule more flexible. The furniture, silverware, glassware ...etc available helped save on rental cost and sound system worked well - DJ was able to set up easily. It was a private, relaxing location - great to have own pool and tiki bar. Also nice that the villa had safes for jewelry I brought for the wedding. The house also has a security system. The only challenge was mosquitoes/bugs which I was told was unusual for January but it did rain for few days (which was unusual) first days when we were there. We had the central area AC turned on (for extra cost) and that helped but some guests got a few bites. Overall great trip - would recommend for vacations, reunions, and intimate weddings!
