About Stephen Gravillis
I lived in Europe for a number of years and worked in an environment where safety and security took precedence. It was a great experience interacting with people from different background. I returned to St Lucia and set up business in retail while maintaining interest in the local property market. I take care of the day-to-day management of our property rentals. While I maintain a keen interest in business, I make the most of every occasion that arise for me to socialize. Relaxing at my favourite beach restaurant & bar with a nice cool cocktail while engaging in conversation is fun. Occasionally I go dancing, mainly at weekends. I love my home, it is my castle and I go the extra mile to ensure that all my guests feel comfortable as though it is their castle too. My idea of a great sense of achievement is, knowing that my guests and people in my company are happy. I am grateful for your interest in our St Lucia Vacation Rental. I hope you will visit sometime soon.

Why Stephen Gravillis chose Micoud
I was born and raised in the village of Micoud (pronounced Me-coo) which is one of ten districts that is located on the south eastern coast of the very beautiful Island of St Lucia. Micoud was one of the main farming village and we supplied a high percentage of agricultural products to the rest of the Island. I enjoy the quiet “Away from the crowds" environment of Beauchamp. Beauchamp is a sub-village in the Micoud district and it is no more than ten minutes drive away from our D’Cartier Rain Forest. The much open space and beautiful surroundings of greenery typifies the truly unspoiled environment of our island. I feel very fortunate to have a comfortable place in St Lucia to call home. Surrounded by nature and having the privilege of being able to produce my organic foods is such an advantage. Conducting our business in the commercial, hustle and bustle districts of the Northern part of St Lucia, then moving away to my sanctuary is truly a privilege. Furthermore, everything, from entertainment to business is easily accessible from where we are located so why reside amidst the crowds?

Perfect Place to Stay
Stephen and Margaret were the most amazing hosts imaginable. My mom and I stayed for a week, and they were absolutely wonderful to us. We decided we were too uncomfortable driving around alone on the crazy roads in St. Lucia, so Margaret chauffeured us all over the island for a very low price and was more than accommodating. They planned out all of our excursions based on our interests, and Margaret kindly made us a delicious dinner after a long day of exploring when we were too tired to go buy food. She cooks a delicious breakfast as well, and the homemade cherry juice is beyond delicious. The house itself is immaculate - we cannot get over all the beautiful details in the tile and the great care that has been placed into this house. The floor was so clean you could eat off of it, and we did not see a single bug the entire week, which is impressive since they are abundant on the island. The yard is so beautiful with fruit trees and colorful flowers - truly a tropical paradise with a beautiful balcony overlooking it. The air conditioning in the bedrooms had the rooms super cold in a matter of minutes from turning it on, and it runs very quietly, although many people didn’t even use it thanks to the lovely breezes. We would never even consider staying anywhere else next time we return to St. Lucia. Margaret and Stephen provided us with a completely stress-free and absolutely perfect trip. We truly cannot think of a single complaint. On a side note, be sure to check out the St. Lucia Animal Protection Society on the north part of the island while you’re here if you are a dog lover! The street dog situation here is quite sad, and these amazing volunteers feed them and spay/neuter them since there are too many dogs on the island and not enough homes for them. We decided to adopt a street dog that I fell in love with on the trip and ship her back to us, and SLAPS has been wonderful about helping us figure out the logistics. Margaret decided to adopt 2 adorable puppies while chauffeuring us to the shelter!
Hi Bekki and Janine
It was truly wonderful to have you in our home. We are delighted to know how comfortable your stay was and how much you enjoyed St Lucia. We look forward to extending the warmest welcome once again to you, your family or friends at some point in the future. Thank you once again for giving us this opportunity.
Stephen / Margaret
Beautiful, well maintained, secluded.
Steven was an excellent host. Definitely recommend renting a car to get around, the road is a bit loose in spots but manageable just watch the drains on the side of the road. It's about a 20 min drive to Sandy Beach, which is the closest beach there is food and drink there & 1 hour drive to Sugar Beach. The airport is also an easy 20 min drive. The apartment itself was clean and welcoming. There was wifi, a full kitchen and living area, as well as TV, the night breeze and the fans helped keep us cool despite no AC. Would totally go back!
Hi Dylan, we always do our best to meet our guests needs hence we appreciate your review.
Well, you've asked and I am happy to say that we have delivered. We have now installed AC units in the apartment. We trust therefore that should you ever return at some point in the future, your stay will be even more relaxing.
Thank you once again for choosing us.
It was certainly a pleasure to be your host on your very special occasion. Happy to know that you were content; your expectations were met. Should you ever visit again, give us a look up; we'd love to have you back. And one more thank you for leaving the apartment very clean.
Ultimate St. Lucian Experience
Margaret and Stephen are exceptional hosts. Words cannot explain their graciousness, above and beyond ANYTHING we could've EVER imagined. The beautiful home is quite near UVF airport with many restaurants and beautiful Sandy beach. Breakfast was excellent and creative with exotic tropical fruits right from their very own backyard. Staying at the BNB felt as if you are with family that you love. The Granvill's are very customer focused so you will enjoy your time here. The home is immaculately clean. Lots of breeze flowing through the home and the balconies are very large. You will not be disappointed booking this accommodation. Staying here gives you great access to Sandy beach with 2 restaurants on the beach (The Reef and Island Breeze) with excellent prices.
Whatever your needs, simply ask Margaret or Stephen. Your wish is their command.
Thank you both so very much for a memorable birthday vacation.
Thanks Robert & Cynthia for your very kind words.
We are happy that you both enjoyed your stay at our property. We always aim to provide the best possible service to all of our guests and we are happy that we were able to achieve this with you.
It was truly a pleasure to have you both as our guests and we look forward to hosting you, your family and friends again at some point in the future.
Authentic cultural paradise
This was a memorable start to our vacation to say the least. The property is immaculate, and Stephen and Margaret (along with their lovely family) welcomed us into their home with open arms. We arrived on Christmas Day, and were unexpectedly invited us to share in their Christmas dinner/festivities. The hospitality we were shown was top-notch throughout our stay. Margaret is a phenomenal cook, and was always quick to offer a local delicacy. They were always willing to help us plan our days, and offer any advice for getting around the island. We would definitely recommend this property as a place to stay and really experience St. Lucian living in a part of the island that is very different than the resort areas. We extend our thanks and gratitude to Stephen and Margaret for the opportunity to spend part of our vacation with them.
Peter, it was such a pleasure having you and Nat as our guests for Christmas. We are even more delighted that you felt embraced by the other visiting members of our family. We continuously aim to deliver the best service to all our guests; we are happy that you gave us the opportunity to doing just that. Thank you for making our property your first choice. It will be our pleasure to host you, your friends and family at some point in the future.
Thank you for a wonderful stay at your home!
Margaret was so kind and helpful to me throughout my stay! The house is super clean.
The road is a bit tricky getting to the house and I would recommend renting a car while staying at this location!
Thank you both again for a wonderful short vacation!
Wendy, it was a pleasure hosting you during your vacation and wish to thank you for choosing Gravill's Vacation Rental - Bed & Breakfast.

Of course it is with pleasure that we will welcome you again should you choose to Visit our beautiful Island once more in the future.
Thank you once again.
Perfect place to stay!
We stayed at Stephen’s house for one week while visiting St. Lucia and we were beyond happy with our choice. The property is gorgeous; on a sleepy street, overlooking the rainforest, surrounded by fruit trees, and only minutes from the airport and beaches. We felt completely safe and comfortable during our stay due to the location and our host Stephen. Stephen is super accommodating, friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable of the island. He went above and beyond to make us feel right at home in St. Lucia while also giving us the a true island experience by taking us to local restaurants/bars, and cracking fresh coconuts in his back yard. We are so glad we chose Stephen’s house over a resort or hotel. We loved being in Micoud surrounded by locals and the laid back vibe of the area. Stephen was excellent at communicating prior to our trip- answering any questions we had and helped us with our planning. We wanted a relaxing, laid back vacation and wanted to experience what St. Lucia had to offer outside of the resorts and we feel we got that. If you are looking for more action, night life, tourist- based activities the Northwest part of the island might be more appealing. That being said, we travelled the whole Island and found we loved Micoud the best. A highlight of our trip was La Tille Falls located minutes away from Stephen’s house and the best food we had was at the Limelight BBQ less than five minutes away. We think it’s necessary to rent a car if you’ll be staying with Stephen. We rented a car and it made it easier to get around the island and see everything that we wanted to see. We found the perfect place to stay and would have been disappointed anywhere else. We hope to return to this stunning island again, and Stephen would be our first call. We truly cannot emphasis enough how generous, accommodating, and friendly Stephen is. Thank you for everything Stephen!
-Ryan & Ameila
Ryan and Amelia are such wonderful people. They’re a quiet but very friendly couple whom I’d love to host again. They chose to experience a true “St Lucia Village holiday” and it was my pleasure in assisting to make this happen. Their willingness to be among the locals, getting a taste of the St Lucian culture was a great decision. From the moment they arrived I knew they’d be relaxed. Indeed I too felt very at ease with them; the conversation started flowing instantly as though we met before. It became a family atmosphere after we enjoyed breakfast together in my private apartment the morning after their arrival. Ryan and Amelia showed tremendous appreciation for the St Lucian hospitality. Yes Ryan, the guests who followed were really thrilled with your bottle of St Lucian rum! Amelia, your painting is amazing! I shall place it in a picture frame so that our future guests can enjoy too; I know you won’t mind.
Thank you so much for leaving the apartment so clean.
A real pleasure to have you guys around!
We are 10 minutes drive away from Hewanorra international airport. Vieux-Fort shopping center is nearby. Other nearby attractions / activities include wind and kite surfing, horseback riding, hiking in the De Cartiers Rain Forest, Latille waterfalls and gardens, ATV Paradise tours. Enjoy our local cuisine at restaurants at Sandy beach, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and our nature reserve Maria Island; a very cool atmosphere and superb for relaxation.
