About Val Phillips

With over 20 years in the short-term villa rental business I have enjoyed converting one home then another. There are 3 villas in my portfolio and with my years of experience it allows me to take good care of my guests from inquiry to arrival, to your stay to your departure. You will be well looked after every step of the way.

Why Val Phillips chose St Lucia

Sea Cliff is gorgeous. A family home completely renovated in 2013 throughout, beautifully decorated with a tropical Caribbean plantation theme, Sea Cliff is a very special place on Earth.

A review of Sea Cliff:

Date of Stay: Dec 23, 2016

I highly recommend a stay at Sea Cliff. The views and the comfort of the home are, as other reviews have mentioned, just like the pictures if not better. Though what really sets this rental apart from others is the people involved. We have rented many homes in the past, and typically there's an agent who either lets you in or provides you with a code to get in and asks that you leave the keys on the table on the way out. Here Val, the owner, was extremely helpful and attentive to our needs right until the last minute. She coordinated our local transportation, tourist activities and food throughout our stay. For the latter we were very lucky that Chef Sara was available. When I first booked her I didn't really understand the title "Chef", the fact is that the quality and presentation of her dinners were at par with those of the finest restaurants. That coupled with the fine wines I was able to secure through a distributor that Val hooked me up with, made for amazing dining experiences every night. I should also point out that the place was kept in tip-top shape by the friendly housekeeper, Mitch, and the groundskeeper Stanley. Again, I highly recommend it without any hesitation.

What makes this villa unique

Location...it couldn't be more perfect. Situated on the other side of the Vigie hill, Its quiet, private, secure, you are 15 minutes drive away to the north, the beach is just 10 minutes walk away. And the views are just incredible.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our recent vacation to the Sea Cliff Villa was absolutely perfect! Val worked with us prior to the trip to ensure that the house would be ready for our two families with four children under 4. She installed a gate at the top of the steps, bought floats for the pool, and even got us some beach toys for the kids. She made sure the fridge was stocked with the groceries we requested and walked us through the types of day trips that would be ideal for our desires. The house was such a perfect retreat- 180 degree ocean views with multiple decks and a beautiful pool area that kept the kids busy all day. We sat on the decks and watched the sailboats on the sea, the cruise ships coming in and out, and the occasional airplane take off or land (not noisy at all, just part of the view). The house was immaculately looked after by Mitch who arrived by 8:30am each morning and was so pleasant and great with our kids. She had no easy task keeping the house clean with so many kids, but she did a wonderful job. Rosaline, the chef went grocery shopping with us and cooked us two wonderful dinners of local food, which was what we wanted, but she could have made us whatever we desired. Since Rosaline doesn't work on Wednesdays, which was our last day, she offered to marinate some chicken the day before so that we could BBQ it ourselves. She also prepared sandwiches and packed them in a cooler for our day trip to Pigeon Island. This house is perfect for a family vacation, a romantic getaway, a family retreat-- basically, it is just perfect!. The location, although a long'ish, twisty drive from the UVF airport, was a close drive to day trips that that were excellent for our families. Val, Mitch, and Rosaline did a great job both attending to all of our needs and wants while at the same time giving us the space to relax and enjoy it all. I can't wait to go back!

A Little Piece of Heaven on Earth!

  • 5 of 5

We spend 6 days in this beautiful Villa and were very sad to have to leave. All the reviews are absolutely right regarding the gorgeous views of the ocean and tropical gardens surrounding the house, the superb services of all the staff, the cleanliness of the property, the tasteful, Caribbean furnishings of the villa, and last but not least, Val's great organizational help with planning our trip and ensuring our care while in St. Lucia. At Sea Cliff Villa, you have all the amenities of a 5-star hotel in your own, secluded, peaceful villa! So, if hotels and lots of other tourists are not your thing, you cannot go wrong with living at Sea Cliff during your vacation in St. Lucia.

My husband and 3 children (17, 15, and 10) traveled to St. Lucia to celebrate my 50th birthday in paradise, and paradise we found. Val was very kind to shift our stay by a day when our airline unexpectedly canceled our flight and we arrived in St. Lucia one day late. She helped with setting up a car rental from the airport and gave as excellent directions to the house. We arrived during the middle of Carnival, so it was a little adventurous to drive around Castries as lots of roads were closed, but we found Sea Cliff right away. Val was there to greet us and help us plan our activities on St. Lucia (she also made all the calls for reservations etc.). It was also so helpful that Roseline went to the grocery store with me the first morning to buy supplies. She cooked us some delicious meals which allowed us to spend more time at the villa to enjoy the views and sunsets. My kids were spoiled by Stanley who supplied us with a selection of fresh Mangos from the garden. And Mitch kept the villa clean and organized for us, so we really did not have to worry about anything. We explored St. Lucia some on our own, but also took a rainforest tram tour (I don't like zip lining because you can't take pictures) and, an absolute must (!), took a day-long private boat tour to see the island from the ocean and go snorkeling and swimming in the crystal clear water.

In closing, I should mention that I never submit reviews of anything, but we were so happy with our stay at Sea Cliff that I just could not hold back this time!

A fantastic vacation property with a personal touch

  • 5 of 5

The stunning beauty of St. Lucia is matched only by the amazing view from this one-of-a-kind vacation rental. Imagine standing on the outside terrace with your arms stretched wide. As you turn your head from the tip of one hand all the way around to the tip of the other hand, it is an absolutely unobstructed 180 degree view of the turquoise Caribbean Sea and the dramatic St. Lucia coastline.

Homeowner Val is a lifetime St. Lucia resident, so besides lovingly maintaining the home, she is a wealth of knowledge about the island. Every single one of her recommendations (from beaches to excursions, shops and restaurants) was spot on. She met us upon arrival with a very personal welcome and took the time to provide us with her insights. Our advice is to take Val's advice...every time!

The staff (Mitch, Rosaline, Stanley) are all absolutely the best. They are very friendly and happy to do anything for you. They each said 'you're on vacation, so you should enjoy every minute.' And they saw to it that we did. Also, be sure to hire chefs Sarah and Warren for at least one evening. It will be a truly unforgettable private dining experience.

And the house...absolutely beautiful. It is stately, but very welcoming and has every amenity you'll need for a great vacation. If you can't relax at Sea Cliff there is something wrong with you.

Many thanks to Val, Mitch, Rosaline, Stanley, Sarah and Warren for an absolutely perfect holiday. The Wolfe Pack looks forward to visiting again soon!

Beyond expectations - an amazing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Sea Cliff was amazing - beyond our expectations. Val and her staff saw that our stay ran perfectly - they were all so friendly and helpful. The house is name correctly - sitting on the hill/cliff of Vigie overlooking the sea. The views from all of the balconies and decks look directly on the ocean - some of the most spectacular sun sets. The house is large, very clean and comfortable - it was ideal for two couples. We spent most of our time on the balconies or by/in the pool - the balconies were nicely furnished. A couple of the evenings we hired the chef to handle our dinners (Val handled all the arrangements) - truly a wonderful experience. Vigie Beach is a short walk from the house, very nice beach for a morning or afternoon walk. If we return to St. Lucia, Sea Cliff will be the place we want to stay.

Excellent villa and wonderful people

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful two week stay at Sea Cliff villa. The Villa Owner, Val, was exceptionally helpful with all the questions we had pre-booking, was their to greet us and ensured that we had all the provisions we requested on our arrival.

The villa, grounds, pool and views are top-notch across the board, everything you could possibly need is there. It has been the best holiday villa we have stayed in, ever! We didn't think that the views could be as good as what the photo's looked showed, but to be frank they are even better.

We also had excellent service from our housekeeper Mitch and our cook Roseline - they make the stay all the more relaxing. On a couple of evenings we also had Chef's Sara and Trisha to come in an prepare some extra special meals.

If we return to St Lucia in the future, which is likely as we had such a good time, we would have no hesitation in staying again at Sea Cliff. Thanks to Val and the team for making our stay so enjoyable.

SEA CLIFF VILLA - What a View!!!

  • 5 of 5

What sticks with me most from my stay at Sea Cliff is the 180 degree view of the ocean. We loved sitting on the veranda with our coffee, just listening to the waves rush in. The villa is modern and open, with windows everywhere, so it’s impossible to miss the sunset. Despite the modern appliances and clean white interior, you still get the Caribbean feel with the touches of local-made furniture and art. I’m an environmental freak so the solar water heating was a big catch for me, and it was even better in the rain shower.

The location is convenient to walk to the beach or to some historical sites. If you’re a history buff, the house is near an old English fort, with abandoned cannons, buildings and even more amazing views. We spent an hour wandering around the fort exploring what could’ve been some prisoner chambers and just sitting at the cliff’s edge looking at the corals and sea urchins from above. Our third day we walked to Vigie beach, about ten minutes downhill. There is a small airport next to the beach, but we never had a plane go over while we were there (I was kind of hoping we would, just like the movies). This beach wasn’t the best for snorkeling (we found the best snorkeling was at Pigeon Island), but it is quite long with nice sand, clear water and we found gorgeous shells for our souvenirs. We still did most of our swimming at Sea Cliff’s pool, especially at night since it has pool lights :)

Most important to me and my family was that we felt safe, and at Seacliff we did. The alarm system is easy to set and secured at every entrance, plus the property is private with gardens on all sides, and gated all the way around. Not only did we feel safe with the house security, but there was not a mosquito in sight. Maybe it was because of the elevation or the screened windows. I didn’t even use spray the whole week. The bedrooms have AC but we didn’t need it because the fans were nice with the windows open with the sea breeze. And lastly, we ate like Kings and Queen’s -- the cooks went above and beyond, as I never expected them to accommodate my gluten-free diet with homemade meals, including Apple Pie… it was even better than any wheat ones, I swear! Val thank you so much for taking time to make sure we felt comfortable, and thank you Mitch and Roseline for my extra 10 vacation pounds. Sea Cliff, this won’t be the last time I see you. You are my home away from home!

Love, Carley

Owner's Response: Dear Carley Thank you so much for your 5 star review of Sea Cliff. I am so glad you had such an enjoyable stay at the villa. Roseline and Mitch are there to spoil our guests which they clearly did for you - a few extra pounds is a sure sign of a good food vacation 😊 and i am so glad our stunning views and sound of the Caribbean Sea offered you complete relaxation. Our decision to screen all the windows and doors from the bedrooms to lounge right through to the laundry area you have confirmed works very well. There is lots more you can explore on your next visit which we so look forward to. Best and many thanks Val

Map

Car: not necessary

A LITTLE HISTORY ABOUT VIGIE - WALKING AROUND VIGIE: It’s a lovely 10 minute stroll down to Vigie Beach. About half way down you will see a road to your right which will take you up to the Vigie Lighthouse which was built in 1914. There are some splendid views of the island to be seen from this vantage point. Next door to Sea Cliff is an old gunning placement, in fact the walls on the right at the entrance of the house form part of this. There are several gunning placements around Vigie and rumour has it they were all at one time interconnected by tunnels. These gunning placements guarded the entrance to the harbor of Castries - the capital of St. Lucia. You will see as you walk around Vigie several old original barracks from days gone by; some of these original brick buildings are now the embassies of Mexico, France and Venezuela – there are a few old barracks on the south road of Vigie sadly are in ruins. In 1760 the French moved their main fortification for the island from Vigie to Morne Fortune - the hillside across the harbor from Sea Cliff - because it offered them an ideal military defence position.

SEA CLIFF VILLA is located in a very private affluent residential area called VIGIE (pronounced VG). Vigie has a private security patrol for the area. It is a very quiet, safe, affluent neighborhood.

Vigie Beach is located just a short 10 minute walk (2 minute drive) and is a beautiful long lovely beach to walk on, to swim, to snorkel. It is a beach to relax on, to take a picnic with you which Susie or Angie our Cooks can pack for you.

Stunning panoramic views of the Caribbean Sea await you at Sea Cliff. Views of cruise ships entering or beautifully lit up at night as they make their exit out of port Castries. You can turn your gaze northward to Pigeon Island with Sir Admiral Rodney bravely defended our island against the French.

There is no airport noise - we wouldn't be a busy villa if there was!

Come to paradise....come and relax and enjoy our beautiful home and let our staff spoil you completely.
