Overview

About the property

3 Double Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6, Ocean & Bay View

The Stone House is one of the original buildings in Marigot Bay, a site probably chosen for its fabulous Bay view & cooling easterly breeze.

A recent renovation has created a relaxing & inspiring home with modern day comforts & artistic charm.

The front gates open into a driveway with parking for 2/3 vehicles directly outside the house. On entrance you're greeted by an open-plan living room and kitchen area, a light and uplifting social space with vaulted ceiling & hardwood flooring.

The kitchen has unique polished concrete tops with breakfast bar & stools, the sink looks out onto an ocean view making this a pleasurable area to create cocktails & feasts, a local cook is an optional extra, you'll see how the unusual local produce is cooked & experience a delicious home cooked creole meal.

The favorite spot is usually the balcony, accessed through large sliding glass doors, you're instantly captured by the view which can be enjoyed from the lounge or dining areas situated on the balcony.

The 3 double bedrooms (King size, Queen size & Standard) all have bay views & louvered glass windows allowing you to control the welcome through breeze.

All beds are hand crafted on the island and each bedroom has an individually designed en-suite bathroom.

The house is on two levels connected by a handmade wooden spiral staircase.

The King size bedroom is on the upper level, it has AC, a ceiling fan & a large fitted wardrobe.

Both the Queen size & Standard bedrooms are on the lower level divided by another lounge/recreational area, there is a small fridge & sink, allowing you to enjoy hot & cold beverages whilst relaxing downstairs. Double doors open onto an outside deck with table & chairs, it conveniently leads to the pool....great spot to enjoy your coffee/tea after a morning swim.

The classic kidney shaped swimming pool has a salt water system, its 27’x 13’in size & ranges from 4’-7’depth. An incoming waterfall creates a relaxing sound whilst the infinity edge shelf ensures the beautiful bay is still in view.

A Caribbean home just isn't complete without a BBQ, with a pool side seating area this provides another dining option, particularly enjoyable during sunset!

The house has both 220v & 110v electrical supply & ceiling fans are fitted in every room.

Solar water heating & rain water collection tanks are one of the eco-friendly features.

Free Wi-Fi throughout, cable TV, a multi-regional DVD player & sound system with large speakers inside & small speakers outside on the balcony to ensure you can listen to your favorite music via your iPod. whilst enjoying a rum punch or local Piton beer & watching the boats, birds or night lights in the picturesque bay.

Escaping the Cold

  • 5 of 5

Escaping the cold and snow in upstate NY is always a dream, but the warmth of Sabina’s welcome was even more than we bargained for!

Three couples/friends spent a week (Saturday through Saturday) at the Stone House and it was fabulous! Sabina helped us arrange Anslem to pick us up at the airport, and he was awesome! On the way back to the house, he stopped by a lookout point for us to take pictures, and then a local roadside bar/restaurant where we picked up some artesian fresh-baked. bread - YUM! Sabina met us at the house - so welcoming - and showed us around a bit, complete with ideas for dinner.

On Sunday, Sabina stopped by to bring some things over...and joined us for a wonderful conversation poolside! Then accepted our invitation to join us for dinner at Chateau Mygo — again, can I say YUM!!!

The reset of the week was a combination of relaxing in the sun, by the pool or in the shade of the veranda. Marigot Bay was a wonderful place...exactly what we were looking for...not overly tourist-y.

If I have any regrets, it’s that we didn’t take further advantage of Anslem’s services. He did pick us up and bring us to Soufriere one day, where we enjoyed a delectable lunch at a local restaurant. He and his wife cook and bring it to the house, if you’d like — but we had plans most nights, so didn’t take advantage of that. He also offered to take us to the Friday Fish Fry up in Castries, but we declined since we had to travel all day Saturday and didn’t want a late night. I highly recommend using his services, as he seems to know a lot of people in town.

So to sum it all up, I cannot say enough good things about Sabina and The Stonehouse! She and the house were amazingly awesome!

Idyllic

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent a blissful four weeks at The Stone House. It was everything it said it was and more.

The house is well situated in Marigot Bay, with stunning views over it. It is exceptionally well equipped and was a pleasure to stay at. It is within easy walking distance of the marina and all its facilities.

Sabina, the owner, was the perfect host. Giving wise advice and making sure that we had everything we wanted. She addressed any issues immediately and provided a perfect service. Our only regret was we failed to heed her advice on a restaurant until the end of our stay - if we had we would have gone for dinner there too!

Sabina's local taxi driver, Anslem, was a delight too. He provided us with an excellent service throughout our stay. In addition he and his wife cooked and joined us for dinner, with their family, which was a lovely occasion - the food was delicious!

We would highly recommend The Stone House. It's rare to find a holiday rental with so much character.

Amazing family destination

  • 5 of 5

We spent a delightful Christmas in this amazing residence. All of the amenities were present and accounted for! This is a lovely home that is fully equipped for staying in, enjoying the sun by the pool, or hopping into town. The best part is Sabina's willingness and kindness in planning everything! She is really wonderful and cares about your vacation. I travel for work weekly and this kind of hospitality is difficult to find!

Wonderful, Magical Week at The Stone House

  • 5 of 5

My wife, parents, and I just finished our week at The Stone House in Marigot Bay and it was undoubtedly our most fun and memorable family vacation. The Stone House is an absolute delight—large bedrooms, beautiful furnishings, modern decor, intriguing artwork, and an infinity pool with waterfall and views of the entire bay. There is even a Bluetooth surround sound system so you can listen to music by the pool or while relaxing on the balcony. It was such a wonderful home that my father refused to leave during our entire trip, saying there could be no better place on the island he would rather be.

The Stone House provides the perfect combination of seclusion and action. It is situated on the sparsely populated southern mountainside overlooking beautiful Marigot Bay with spectacular views of the ocean. If you want to eat out or enjoy nightlife, Marigot Bay has world-class restaurants which are walk-ably close if you don’t mind a bit of a hike up and down the hill. Or you can travel north to Castries or Rodney Bay for larger bars and nightclubs. Personally we had everything we needed right in Marigot Bay - terrific restaurants and a lively enough night scene.

The owner of The Stone House, Sabina, was there to greet us with cold Piton beers when we arrived Saturday night. Throughout our stay Sabina was super attentive to our every need and very responsive when we called her asking questions or needing something at the house. We got to know Sabina very well during the week and I can honestly say that aside from my mother, Sabina is the most kind and generous person I’ve met in my life. She goes WAY out of her way to make sure your stay at The Stone House is a truly memorable one, bringing us anything we needed and even offering to drive us down to the dock (and pick us up) to enjoy the Marigot Bay nightlife. Our return flight to Boston was cancelled on Saturday and although we didn’t reserve The Stone House an extra day, Sabina invited us back for one more night! Sabina is an amazing person and I speak for my entire family when I say that we’re incredibly honored and humbled to call her a friend.

Our best times spent at The Stone House involved having drinks on the long balcony while listening to our favorite music and early evening swimming in the stone pool as the sun was setting.

This was the perfect Caribbean vacation. We couldn’t have asked for a more fantastic time. We can’t wait to return to The Stone House next winter!

Our best HomeAway vacation rental ever!

  • 5 of 5

Our best HomeAway stay ever! The house is very nice - spacious, recently renovated, great views from the upper veranda (you can see the harbor and the sailboats). Our two boys (4 and 9) and us loved the pool. We used the grill by the pool a few times.

And best of all, Sabina was more than just renting a house, she advised us on places to visit, found us a great taxi driver, supplied us with a local phone so that we can stay connected. Overall, very happy, highly recommended!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Our family, my husband, I, and our two teenage daughters, had a perfect week. The house is exactly as it looks in the listing. Sabina went out of the way to make sure we had everything we needed, including a lot of info to have a good time.

Also, the Marigot bay location was great. We visited other beaches, but Marigot bay had the most laid back enjoyable vibe.

About Sabina Siddiqi

I’m a designer/artist born in the UK, hence the artistic décor & unconventional finishes.

I’ve lived in St Lucia around 9 years, managing our house build then renovating The Stone House.

I'm always on hand to help, advise & recommend, it's great to meet people & enthuse about the beauty of this island.

Having travelled extensively, it's always fun to hear about new places & other peoples recommendations.

I love snorkelling, wild life, nature and the sun! the main reasons I've been enticed to stay......it's a stunning island & Marigot Bay has an irresistible charm; it’s hard to leave & always great to come back!

Sabina Siddiqi purchased this house in 2008

Why Sabina Siddiqi chose Castries Quarter

Location!!! Marigot is a stunning location, it's also on the cost of the Caribbean sea, perfect to access both north & south of the island by road or by sea.

Marigot Bay has a wonderful community, a mix of residents, visitors & locals, integrating local life with international people, an interesting social environment.

I enjoy exploring, trekking through the rain forest, BBQ’s on beaches, a mud bath in the volcanic spring & adore waterfalls all of which the island has to offer.

What makes this house unique

I lived at the Stone House for 4 years whilst building another property just down the road where I now live. It's a very special home, when I spend a few days there I still find it hard to leave, especially now we've finished the renovation, it's bright, open, arty & fun.

I love unusual, natural, character places, which generally tends to be older properties. The Stone house is one of the original buildings in the bay, built from stones found on the land in 1960's, I believe they followed a Canadian chalet design, it was 2 apartments, we've now converted it into one house adding an extra bedroom with bathroom. I love the fact it has a chimney & fireplace an unusual feature that gives it character, I've now installed a built-in gas oven, which signifies our changing times. It's wonderfully solid & simple, stone walls & wood floors, the glass sliding doors & louvered glass windows are great, seeing the sea, sky & trees, feeling the breeze, all this gives me a sense of space & well being.

The pool is fab too, we've put an infinity edge shelf, so now it's so relaxing hanging on the edge watching the Bay.....perfect!

Undeniably the best spot in the house is the veranda, sitting on a lounge chair gazing down into this stunning bay, watching the boats, birds, people playing on the beach, the magical night scene with lights & music drifting up from the bay...with a cold Piton Beer...really can't be beaten, it's captivating, relaxing, therapeutic.... indescribable!
