About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Leave all your worries at home and come enjoy this wonderful tropical cottage. The TREEHOUSE is nestled on a hillside near Anse Chastanet Beach and is a short trip from the old French capital of Soufriere. The TREEHOUSE is a stone and wood cottage on an acre of tropical lushness. It is the perfect place for a honeymoon, relaxing holiday or an extreme adventure vacation. It has one bedroom, one full bath, a fully equipped kitchen, a sparkling plunge pool and a 180' view of the Caribbean Sea that includes the Pitons, St. Vincent, and Anse Chastanet Bay.

Besides providing for all of your needs within the TREEHOUSE, the surrounding area provides unlimited opportunities to truly experience the real St. Lucia. Among the activities are hiking, fishing, diving , snorkeling, mountain biking, kayaking, sailing, mountain climbing, rainforest hike, sunbathing (Anse Chastanet beach is a ten minute walk), botanical gardens, waterfalls, and bird watching (this can be done from the deck of the TREEHOUSE). There is no reason not to have the ULTIMATE TROPICAL EXPERIENCE at the TREEHOUSE.

The small town of Soufriere is only a twenty minute walk from the TREEHOUSE. Many natural places of interest including the Diamond Mineral Falls, Botanical Gardens, Sulphur Springs, the Drive-In Volcano and a few working plantations can all be found in and around Soufriere. In addition, there are grocery stores, bakeries, banks (ATM), a fish market, and numerous restaurants are located here.

Car rentals can be arranged or taxi services are available for drives/tours around the island. A few places to visit include Marigot Bay, Canopy Zip Lines, Rodney Bay/Pigeon Point, Castries and the RainForest.

Why Sam chose Mamin

Piton views, Caribbean views, three nearby beaches with crystal clear water and dark sand beaches, plenty of natural attractions and activities in the area, convenience, comfort and privacy that comes with a private villa, practically everything is provided including a cook.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at the Treehouse. The staff was great--without exception. We appreciated the recommendations in the guestbook as it gave us peace of mind. We visited Gee's a couple of times--great food. We rode with Recardo and Moby Dick--both colorful characters and very pleasant. We hope to return to St Lucia someday and will keep the Treehouse in mind.

A Great Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing place to vacation from the view on the treehouse balcony looking at the twin Pitons to the valley just below it. There are hiking trails behind the treehouse as well as a great short hike to the Anse Chastanet Hotel and the beautiful blue water and sandy beach for some sun or just relax and listen to the waves of the ocean right beside the hotel. The water was so amazingly blue and calming. The food at the Anse Chastanet Hotel was wonderful and the service was great. The locals were all very kind and helpful everywere we went. The sightseeing trips were wonderful and informative from the Forest Tours to the trip to the Volcano. The mineral bath will make you feel ten years younger and make you not want to leave. Everywere you go you can stop and pick fresh fruits as well as a grocery store at the heart of the nearby town. The treehouse is just like a home away from home with all the necessary anamities right at your finger tips. The owner checked on us daily to make sure we were comforable and that we were enjoying our stay. You go to sleep with the sound of the crickets and wake up listening to the birds singing. I highly recommend this place for a first time vacation and for sure repeat visits.

Amazing views and great experience.

Pictures don't do this property justice. The views from the deck were incredible. Charmaine was so sweet and such a great cook.

The scene from the TREE HOUSE was awesome!! The birds were all around

all day, the city was right below with all that you need,, I'm glad We rented a Jeep to be able to get up the bumpy road to the TREE HOUSE! We had our own pool to cool down in at any time! Very much private as can be! The house had all the things you needed for a great vacation with a free meal on arrival!! THANK YOU....JW

Beautiful scenery. Relaxing atmosphere. Comfortable and clean. Loved it.

  • 5 of 5

The Treehouse was absolutely great. Accommodations from the time our plane landed to the time we left were perfect. The house itself was comfortable, clean and had everything one needed to relax and enjoy the beautiful island. Charmaine, the housekeeper, was fantastic. Not only did she do some shopping for us ahead of time so we were all set when we got there, but would take care of our every request. She checked on us daily to see if we were enjoying our stay and kept everything fresh for us. She also cooked our first meal on the island, which was delicious. Cliave, our taxi driver, also was terrific. He took us anywhere we wanted to go, told us about the town and gave us great information on what to do while we were there. Everyone was very friendly. The climb up the Gros Piton mountain was challenging but an easier hike was the Tet Paul Trail which had more views of the beautiful island. We also enjoyed the drive in volcano, the botanical gardens and waterfall, as well as Sugar Beach. So much to do, all not too far from the house. The most beautiful beach though, was close to the treehouse at the bottom of the hill. Anse Chastanet. Absolutely beautiful. The snorkeling there was awesome. A lot of colorful fish to see. Absolutely want to come back again and will look to stay at the Treehouse again.

My Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

2017 was our fourth annual stay in the Treehouse and it seems that I've never reviewed it on this site. Perhaps it's because I'm always so perfectly relaxed when we leave that it's hard to sit down and get serious!

Charmaine, John and Alvin are all great and Sam is always so responsive and attentive to any suggestions.

The treehouse (cottage) is exactly what I was seeking the first time to stayed and each time since. I feel as though I'm up in a tree and outdoors all of the time, yet my husband has a comfortable place to sit, strong Wifi, great surround sound system, and a TV with lots of channels. The only time we close a door is to secure the place when we leave, and to keep critters out of the kitchen and maybe the bedroom while we sleep. (There's a manicou that enjoys eating the leftover banana peels in the bird feeder after dark and we don't want him checking out the kitchen!) There's also a tiny Iizard that leaps from the tree to the feeder to compete with all of the birds for the fruit. Thankfully, the house kitties and birds seem to co-habitate in peace. This year we had more rain showers than I've ever seen yet the design with the overhanging roof kept us nice and dry. There are long curtains but we've never needed to use them.

The gardens and plunge pool are so welcome after a hike up the hill or a day spent out snorkeling and exploring.

There are lots of books to choose from, so don't bother packing any reading. And don't overlook the welcome book with so much great info or the guest comment book. We always discover new things to do!

I'll stop now, but if you love the Caribbean, sleeping in comfort yet feeling like you're outdoors, the Treehouse and St. Lucia are a wonderful pairing, like a great chilled wine and the perfect cheese. Just plan to be relaxed and experience the warmth of the Lucian people.

Paradise with a view!!!

  • 5 of 5

Don't look any further and book now! My beautiful fiance and I just spent a magical 5 days high above the ocean at this great property. From the moment we booked to being dropped off at the airport we were taken care of. Sam was quick to respond to all of our questions. Everything we needed, from arranging transportation from the airport to organizing our first meal was taken care of. Speaking of our first meal. Charmaine is incredible!!! The best cook with the biggest heart. She was so kind and welcoming from the moment we meet her. She was always available whenever we needed anything. Even grabbing a case of Pitons for us to enjoy of the beach!!!

Tou are part of the beauty of St Lucia when staying here. Hot sunshine, morning rain, singing birds, ocean breezes, beautiful flowers will be your everyday.

We loved every second and cannot wait to return!!
