My husband, Simon and I are English and moved to St. Lucia in 2007. We renovated this property and set up Blue Skies.
We love the Island and our ambition is to help our guests have a fantastic time.
We love the Rodney Bay area, it is where everything happens. You have the best of both worlds: the buzz surrounding the restaurants, bars and night-clubs along by Reduit Beach...The beautiful scenery and quiet sophistication of Rodney Bay Marina parading elegant yachts of every shape and size.
Within a few minutes we have Pigeon Island - a National Park, so quiet and beautiful: you can lay on a near deserted beach taking in the fantastic views with the calm waters of the Caribbean sea gently lapping.
For contrast, travel another 7 or 8 minutes to the wild side. Cas en Bas Beach is on the Atlantic Coast: here the constant warm winds provide power for the Kite Surfers and horses take their riders into the sea. The landscape is rugged and breathtaking.
We offer to take our guests to all the places mentioned, the day after they arrive, to show them the diversity of this part of the Island and hopefully help them to get as much as possible from their stay.
Throughout the time guests stay with us, we are available to assist; whether it is a small thing like where to buy a particular item or some thing larger -planning a major excursion of the Island for instance, we are always delighted to help in any way we can - we love St. Lucia and want our guests to leave with unique and long-lasting happy memories.

We had a nice stay at Blue Skies during our visit to St.Lucia. Although the apartment is a little more ‘rustic’ than the pictures lead you to believe, the main draw was the location and the uber-friendly hosts! We had read many reviews of Simon and Francine’s hospitality, and they are all true! Simon gave us a tour of the area and responded very quickly to all our questions and needs. Although we rented their SUV for a day trip, a vehicle is not necessary from this location on the island. We were only a 5 minute walk to the bus stop and food truck lot, so getting around and staying fed was easy. There is also a supermarket 15 minutes away on foot, or a quick bus ride for only $1.50 EC. The pool was well maintained, and a treat after a long hot day. We would definitely recommend!
We stayed for one week in the 2 bedroom apartment in March 2016, as a family of 5 (two adults, 3 children). The apartment is in an excellent location, very convenient to Rodney Bay. We were within minutes of the 3 grocery stores, the Marina (from which we embarked on a day cruise), Trims horseback riding (another fun excursion), Pigeon National Park, several different beaches, and many restaurants as well. We did rent a car, which I would highly recommend.
The apartment itself: we enjoyed the swimming pool and hot tub nearly every night, and everyone slept comfortably in their own bed (each child in his/her own single bed, and my wife and I in the full bed). The bedrooms were comfortable and cool. The kitchen, though a bit small, provided a stove, oven, microwave, refrigerator/freezer, and a blender for making frozens. So we were able to cook breakfast and dinner each day, saving hundreds vs. eating out for a family of five. There is also a washer so you can clean your clothes if necessary. The garden/yard out back is beautiful and spacious and our children enjoyed chasing the crabs out there.
The best part of Blue Skies Apts, however, is Simon and Francine. Simon greeted us upon arrival and showed us around the apartment and ensured we had everything we needed. The next morning, Francine arrived and loaded us all up her car and took us on a tour of the area. She showed us everything we asked for - the beaches, food markets, parks, attractions, restaurant tips (try Razmataz Indian, as she recommended - we loved it) and answered many other questions we had - this turned out to be extremely helpful and saved us a lot of time from guessing/getting lost trying to find these on our own. Francine was also available immediately if we needed to call her with any other questions or needs we had. Simon and Francine are truly remarkable people who went out of their way to ensure we had the best experience possible while at Blue Skies, and we hope to stay in touch with them in the future.
We are minutes away from Rodney Bay Mall, Marina, Reduit Beach, Gros Islet village the golf course, the racquet club, shops, supermarkets, restaurants and nightclubs as well as Pigeon Island National Trust Park, home to the St Lucia Jazz Festival, and Beausejour cricket ground which hosted the World Cup Semi-final.
A short walk takes you to the Rodney Bay Marina where you can hire a boat to go whale watching or deep sea fishing. Frequent buses leave from there and you can be in Castries in 15 minutes, or Gros Islet for the Friday Night Jump-up part in five.
Hire a car and visit The Pitons, marvel at the walk-in volcano and stroll through the old capital, Soufriere. Take a sedate airborne ride through the rainforest canopy or observe the exotic flora and fauna as you hurtle down a zip line.
St Lucia's beautiful beaches are ideal for windsurfing, sailing, kite surfing, water skiing and water biking.
