About Wanda and David Wallace

We are originally from New York and we fell in love with St Lucia 15 years ago. Our dream was to create a beautiful accommodation in a lush tropical setting overlooking the Caribbean Sea. Nature's Paradise is our dream come true.

WANDA: I was a professional dancer for many years and I traveled the world in that capacity. As the first woman White Belt in the US, I practiced Eagle Claw Kung Fu and taught Tai Chi. Exploring the Island and sampling it's rich culinary culture are two of my passions.

Wanda and David Wallace purchased this house in 2003

Why Wanda and David Wallace chose St Lucia

WE CHOSE ST LUCIA because it is the most beautiful island in the southern Caribbean. St Lucia has a large Rain-Forest, lots of beaches and wonderful warm people. It a rare country where you can relax and feel safe & secure everywhere. Stress is low and the food is great. So many restaurants! So little time!

What makes this house unique

WE ARRANGE Rain-Forest tours & Volcano hot baths, recommend the best beaches for swimming & snorkeling; and we point you to trails where you can hike by yourself in the Rain-Forest.

YOU CAN ASK US about Hiking the Pitons and Zip-Lining the Rain-forest. We are happy to recommend the best restaurants and markets.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The location high above Marigot Bay surrounded by nature and Wanda and David's hospitality is truly breath taking. Our cottage was comfortable and well equipped. For a couple living in the heart of the city, the sounds and silence of the tropics are absolutely delightful as is the lush tropical growth. We enjoyed the suggested restaurants particularly brunch on the porch of a colonial plantation house. Our trip to Soufriere with David was wonderful as was the dip in the remote warm springs. We also rented a 4 wheel drive vehicle to explore the island. We learned much about the tropical growth and flowers on this trip as well as life and culture of the island. Wanda's island breakfast's are perfect and the bananas from their own trees a particular treat. David's recommendations are always on target and the people of St. Lucia welcoming and helpful. Yes, Nature's Paradise is a unique adventure and you would be fortunate to share it.

Absolutely Stunning

  • 5 of 5

Avocado Cottage is a pure Caribbean gem located in an absolutely stunning tropical setting. From the moment my wife and I arrived we were immersed in a paradise of lush gardens, spectacular views, calming trade winds, and a truly relaxing environment for our long-awaited (and much needed) vacation. What’s not to love in this idyllic locale? You can sip your morning coffee or an evening glass of wine on your own private deck, watch the waves crash into the cove below, or enjoy the sunset as it fades into the horizon to the west. Swim in a beautiful hilltop pool with 180-degree panoramic vistas. Drive (or hike) into Marigot Bay—one of the most beautiful harbors in the Caribbean—for a delicious meal at any number of world class restaurants. Or venture out across the island for phenomenal snorkeling, hiking, zip-lining, sailing, or soaking in the rain forest in naturally heated mineral baths.

Best of all you have David and Wanda as your hosts. Eager to provide as much or as little assistance as you want, their hospitality itself is a treasure. From delicious breakfasts on their ocean-view patio to exclusive off-the-beaten-path private excursions, they know how to take care of their guests. They encouraged us to venture out on our own and helped us find some real pearls we wouldn’t have discovered otherwise.

My wife and I lived in the Caribbean for several years and nowhere have we felt more at home than in Avocado Cottage. Go now!

My New Paradise....

  • 5 of 5

I had no idea what to expect when I booked my stay at Nature's Paradise.

I had the vacation of a lifetime.

Single traveler, female, late 20s. St Lucia had everything I was looking for and Nature's Paradise was the perfect home base in which to relax after enjoying it. The grounds are stunning- the gardens make you feel as if you're in some far away rainforest (which is basically the case lol). Despite there being multiple guests on site, as well as the owners, there is never a lack of privacy. The pool is gorgeous and the view of the sunset even more so. The house and surrounding cottages are perched above Marigot Bay on a high cliff- and the location couldn't have been better. The view from my cottage balcony was second to none- and the house always stayed cool. Breakfasts were always fun, getting to know your fellow guests and listening to David and Wanda's wonderful stories and picking their brains about this lovely island they call home.

I stayed in the avocado cottage, and it was perfect. Full bath (beautiful tile), large bed with mosquito netting, full kitchen- everything I needed. Everything was clean and in good working order.

It's a very short walk or drive down to the bay directly below Nature's paradise- and the snorkeling is superb. The beach is small and private- you'll almost always have it to yourself. Marigot Bay itself is also a short drive (a bit more of a walk, but it's St. Lucia- so get out and enjoy it). The restaurants (Chateau Mygo in particular) are fantastic.

Despite how lovely the house and grounds are, the most wonderful part of Nature's Paradise was Dave and Wanda. I would be hard pressed to find a more interesting and enjoyable couple. Between the two of them, their knowledge of the island is second to none. I spent a great deal of time with Dave seeing the island, and enjoyed every minute of it. I genuinely consider them friends and hope to come back to their home one day.

To my other fellow single traveler- thank you for providing me with wonderful company. I sincerely enjoyed it. And to Graham and Vicki- I had a blast with you two, the Canadian soulmates I never knew I was missing.

Dave and Wanda- thank you so much for opening your home to me. This trip was special for me- and you made it unforgettable. God bless the both of you.

Stunning views, modest B&B accommodation

  • 3 of 5

Nature' s Paradise is aptly named, as the house, its swimming pool and its cottages are set in lush, beautifully planted grounds high above Marigot Bay with views of the bay and beyond. Our welcome from hosts David and Wanda was warm and eager to please. Our cottage accommodation was comfortable, but not luxurious, and our cottage would have benefitted from some freshening up (linens etc). This was a true B &B experience, with a light breakfast served with other guests at 8 am sharp which included fresh fruit, juice, bread, cheese and coffee every day. It is important to know that given the position of the house, high above the bay, the access road is steep and only partially paved, so unless you are prepared for a steep walk to and from the bay, you will want to hire a vehicle which is also necessary to explore the area.

Truly a bit of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous setting, spotless rooms and wonderful hosts. We spent 2 weeks here as our home base for exploring this magnificent island. It is quiet, peaceful and away from touristy spots. We took Dave's advice and had a driver bring us from the airport, and had a car delivered the next day. Great advice as the roads are challenging and it gives you a feel for your surroundings. Dave and Wanda are wonderful hosts and a great source of information to plan a perfect trip, from a perfect location. Breakfasts were delicious, with local fresh fruit daily, and a chance to fellowship with others. The cottage has a fully equipped if you choose to cook some meals in. I can't imagine anyone would be disappointed staying in this wonderful place.

We felt like we had come home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited Nature's Paradise over the holidays in 2011 and had such fond memories of the trip we booked a repeat visit over the last Christmas holidays. We were not disappointed! It felt like coming home! The grounds of NP are lush with tropical gardens cultivated by Wanda and the views from the main house's veranda and the pool are spectacular. Wanda's weekday breakfasts are full of tropical fruit and local breads and coffee. David and Wanda are still the consummate hosts we remember. Their local knowledge is unparalleled. They are happy to assist with small details like car rentals (4 wheel drive highly recommended) and dinner reservations to make your visit as seamless as possible and they enthusiastically share ideas for things to do on island from crashing swanky beaches (all beaches in St. Lucia are open to the public), to hiking above the rainforest, to great snorkeling spots. We highly recommend allowing David to guide you on the Soufrière trip early in your stay as it not only gives you a great introduction to the island, but is also a lovely day all around. As before, we stayed in Banana Cottage and loved the space with fantastic views of the Caribbean Sea. We highly recommend NP!

MARIGOT BAY HAS A TERRIFIC BEACH. Palm-Villa and the Cottages are set high on a hill for great views. The famous La Bas Beach is on the north side of the Bay, and there are no cars or roads. You go by ferry which runs 24/7. The boat ride is about 2 minutes and is fun. There are 4 good restaurants and 2 great restaurants on the bay.

We encourage activity! We have some of the best Scuba Diving in the Caribbean and great Snorkeling; There are water sports on Marigot Bay. Go hiking in the Rain Forest; Horseback Riding on the beach; Restaurants with great food in lovely settings; Sightseeing by car; Boating galore; Swimming in the warm Caribbean Sea; Bird-watching, see the rare St Lucian Parrot etc, etc. There is so much to do.

Or you can do nothing at all. At Nature's Paradise there is a beautiful pool with a wood deck and comfortable lounges. Lay back, enjoy the sun and read a book.
