We just got back from our time at Villa Kessi and had a wonderful time. The villa was gorgeous...just as beautiful in person as in the pictures. The two master suites made it perfect for my husband and me and other couple we were vacationing with. Our housekeeper, Catherine, was very accommodating...providing delicious meals, cleaning everyday, and making sure we had everything we needed. The villa is quiet and serene - perfect for a week away from reality. We were truly able to unplug, enjoy time by the pool and enjoy what St. Lucia has to offer.
We enjoyed a wonderful trip from start to finish. The house was wonderful, great kitchen, pool, pool table, you name it. We felt like we were right at home. The woman in charge got us a great driver that took us around the island and showed us around from the Piton mountains to the Volcano and Mineral baths. He was a big help. Lastly, we had no issues with the mosquito as some had stated before, I got 1 bite in 5 days and it was on my last night. We had great weather, not to hot and great breeze and rain was on an off so overall we were very pleased again.
Villa Kessi is gorgeous. It's spacious and private and the staff are very friendly and helpful.
We enjoyed our temporary home away from home for every reason possible -- beautiful location, the welcome meal, a very well maintained home and fabulous support services from both the Villa Manager and housekeeper (especially the housekeeper -- her name is Lucetta). and to top it off, we could not have asked for better weather. It was a fabulous week...was very sorry to leave. Thank you Luxury Retreats!
Our vacation overall was amazing. One of our favorite parts was coming home every night to our amazing villa after a long day of activities and exploring St Lucia. Sitting on the couch and looking out at the infinity pool and gorgeous view were just priceless. It was so nice feeling at home in a different country. Lucelta, our housekeeper, was also amazing. She was so sweet and helpful. Even though we are back in our apartment in New York, we also talk about how we miss "our home."
Kessi is a beautiful villa in the hills of the Cap Estate, away from the giant resorts just down the road. If you're a get-away-from-it-all kind of vacationer, Villa Kessi does not disappoint. The meticulously maintained house, along with a private pool, has just about everything you need to lounge around and take in the sunlight.
Lu, the housekeeper, is a sweet and generous woman, eager to share her home-grown vegetables and local breads. She'll also teach you Patois if you want to learn a few new phrases. And she's more than happy to cook meals, as long as you provide the ingredients.
When you're ready to explore the island, North Shore attractions are just a short drive away. Rodney Bay, Gros Islet and other destinations are more than enough to keep you busy for a few days.
This is an open-air villa, so if you're addicted to A/C and can't stand the occasional mosquito bite, this might not be your place.
