Castries Quarter Apartment Rental Photos and Description

One bedroom/bath private apartments with full kithchen/living areas, shared pool

Tucked into the north side of Marigot Bay, far on the western shore, sits Hibiscus Cottage. The cottage faces out to the Caribbean Sea; and the sunsets; and sailboats and yachts drifting by. Breathtakingly beautiful views, soft Caribbean breezes, four comfortable apartments, tiled deck with lounge chairs surrounding a splash pool for cooling down. Clean white walls are accented by a mint green and blue/gray trim. Each units has its own separate entrance.

Hibiscus Cottage offers you a choice of four separate apartments offering you comfortable accommodations for your stay in Marigot Bay, St. Lucia. The two upper floor units each have a living space (dining, living) and a balcony with a separate kitchen, bedroom and bath. They differ in several ways - -unit 3, has a living space that is enclosed with French glass doors that can be left open or closed. The kitchen is separated from the living area with an eat in bar. The bedroom has a king size bed, fan overhead and mosquito netting. The ensuite bathroom has a large soaking tub with a view; separate tiled shower! Unit 4 has a living space that is screened but opens to an unscreened balcony view of the sea. Off this area is a kitchen with everything you will need to cook. The bedroom/ensuite bath has a king size bed with fans overhead and mosquito netting. Hardwood flooring in the living areas; tile in the kitchens, bedrooms, baths. Shuttered windows can be opened to the sea breezes. Apartment #3 offers about 1000 square feet (305 square meters) of living space. Apartment #4 has about 720 square feet (220 square meters).

Units 1 and 2 are on the ground level and lead directly to the pool area. Both have spacious bedrooms and baths. Separate kitchens. Each unit opens to a latticed sitting area with dining table just off the tiled pool area. Unit 1 has a queen size bed; unit 2, a king. Again, both have fans overhead and mosquito netting. Tiled floors. Again, you will have great sea views and also be steps away from the pool. These units are cozy and comfortable but simpler than the ones on the second floor and smaller (about 270 square feet for unit #1 and 350 square feet for #2)

In all units, you will find the kitchens well outfitted for cooking. Each has it’s own unique view of the bay but all offer wonderful views. And the sunsets are not to be missed. If you have never seen the Green Flash, this is a prime viewing spot! The property is edged by lands that are natural and beautifully planted with tropical flowers. Go to sleep with the tree frogs chirping and waken to bird song. Sitting around the pool, getting to meet your neighbors is a unique treat – they might be from a town near you or halfway around the world. Fun to share your journey after a day of touring. Near the pool area is a fireplace that can be used for grilling – using local charcoal or wood.

By far the best balcony view of Marigot Bay

  • 5 of 5

Although the apartment is a bit of a climb from the beach, it is totally worth the trek up the hill to get a terrific view of the bay. The guest house is lovely, especially apartment #3 where one will find perhaps the only bathtub in Marigot. Although we didn't use the tub, it was certainly part of the charm in this amazing apartment. The living area was so spacious and the kitchen had just about everything we needed to prepare several meals. The king size bed was a bit lumpy, but we solved the problem by simply placing a blanket under the bottom sheet. Coffee on the veranda/balcony every morning is a must as you can see the sailboats come in and out of the bay. The little birds kept us company too...just be sure to close the door or one might fly in! Elaine's attention to detail certainly helped us out a lot with the pre-arrival packet of information about the area. We did a lot during our stay, however we left a few activities for another visit so we could come back to the same place again. Wonderful!!!

Perfect location and terrific apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in unit # 3 for the month of Feb., which is a long time for us . For this reason we requested the largest unit of the four apartments. It was a great choice. The unit is as described on the HomeAway site and the care that Elaine, and her assistants provide could not be better. They anticipated our needs and responded to any and all questions we had. This extended to: the provision of reading materials & fresh grapefruit; alerts to the imminent arrival of the local fisherman at the beach; tips about where to get food and restaurant suggestions.

The orientation book in the apartment is comprehensive and up to date. The apartment is fully equipped and in good shape. The breezes kept us comfortable throughout our stay and we did not need a/c at all.

Most evenings we were happy to relax by the pool or on our balcony and watch the yachts go by and the sun set. We can confirm that the green flash is real.

No problems & no regrets. This is a great apartment.

Perfect place to relax

  • 4 of 5

Perfect place to catch up with all those books you meant to read. Each morning spent on the verandah enjoying sights and sounds of Marigot Bay. In the afternoons the balcony became too hot to sit so had to go 10 steps down to the private pool. What a hardship. Drageed ourselves down the great little lift to enjoy happy hour at Chateau Mygo followed by dinner in one of the restaurants or back at " home".

Thanks for the arrangements Elaine and to the staff who looked after us very well.

Breathtaking Views and a Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here over the Christmas holiday. The apartment was exactly as advertised with the most beautiful views. Elaine was great to work with and very responsive to emails. She sent a package of information covering everything you could need to know and also stocked up on groceries for us since we were arriving on Christmas day. The walk down to the bay itself was easy to follow, took about 3 or 4 minutes to get down, and longer to climb back up, great exercise if you are reasonably fit, but with a quaint little lift system if you don't want to walk up or down. Marigot Bay is beautiful and has some very good restaurants, Rainforest Hideaway, Masala Bay and Julietta's to name but a few. Elaine organized a cab from the airport for us and had help at hand when we arrived to cart the bags up to the apartment. The apartment has a nice sized bathroom, small but adequate kitchen and a huge lounge and dining area. The doors to the balcony can all open up allowing for a nice breeze and such fabulous views, the harbor, yachts and catamarans slowly cruising by, flowers, tropical birds and amazing sunsets. The Wi-Fi was very good. we enjoyed many a morning sipping coffee on the balcony and feeding the birds, and several evenings watching the sun sink over the horizon with a cold beer in hand. :-)

Relaxing home from home with beautiful views.

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was exactly as advertised. It was clean, suitably furnished and everything was in working order. It was a little peace of paradise with fabulous views from the verandah and plunge pool. The living area is completely open with mosquito screening all the way around - just right for sitting out at anytime of the day without getting bitten by the bugs. You can go to sleep at night listening to the frogs, waves gently lapping, breeze in the palms and wake up in the morning to the sound of birds; very relaxing. Booking was very easy with Elaine and she was very helpful during our stay. Great place and we will hopefully return.

Excellent location for someone who would prefer not to have to drive as so many things are an easy walk from Hibiscus Cottage. There is plenty to keep you busy and entertained within a short walk. Or if you want to go touring to other sites on the island, Marigot is centrally located for trips north and south on the island.

Notes:
What a great place for a couples getaway to celebrate an anniversayr, honeymoon, or just spend time together and renew! Or also for a vacation with other couples you love traveling with -- each can have their own space but be able to share close accomodations. You won't need a rental car! Just kick back and relax. There is lots to do if you want to be on the go but also a great place to do nothing but rest, read, and re-juvenate! It's a quick walk to so many amenities - -beach, grocery, restaurants/bars, watersports -- that you will find plenty to do in Marigot. Or take a tour of the island easily as Marigot is located midway on the Caribbean side of the island so it's not far to go either north or south. In the north, visit Pigeon Point, Cas en Bas beach, casino, malls in Rodney Bay, duty free shopping at Point Seraphine. Or head south and tour botanitcal gardens, take a mud bath, drive into the volcano site, climb the Pitons, tour a plantation.
