I am going to agree with everything that all the other reviewers have said about la batterie villa as this would be the only place I would stay on the island. The pictures online cannot depict how beautiful the house and views truly are. The staff is amazing. Our family loves food so we tried several places on the island for dinner, but only one is worth recommending, and that is the restaurant at hotel chocolat. We had an amazing lunch there after we did the chocolate making class , which my whole family would highly recommend. At other restaurants, we found the service to be extremely slow(this is especially relevant if you have younger children and teens like us) and the food mediocre. Our children only wanted Stephanie to cook dinner after having her food compared to dasheen and the restaurant at the hummingbird. Lastly, our family loved the rainforest tour with gardener Terry, snorkeling with sugar boat tours, deep sea fishing with mystic man tours and the tour of the volcano. If there was anything that we would have liked to know before going is that there are people trying to sell you something everywhere you go, don’t be afraid to say no, it is an island paradise and island time is a real thing! Be prepared to slow down and relax, and la batterie villa is the perfect place to do just that! Thank you Michael and Jennifer for always being available to answer questions and for sharing your beautiful home in St. Lucia!
We have had a great time. The staff is awesome. Stephanie’s cooking is the best, and she accommodated our every need. The trip to the rain forest with Terry was so much fun and so interesting. We highly reccomend this villa for anyone looking for a relaxing and special stay in St Lucia. Thank you!
A memorable vacation!
Spending a week at La Batterie Villa with my family was such a special and memorable vacation. Even before you arrive, you're primed of your soon-to-be arrival with friendly emails from Mike & Jen to ensure that when you arrive it's already a fantastic experience. When we arrived, we were welcomed by very friendly staff, all of whom are very kind and attentive to any possible needs we might have. The villa is exactly as described and the view... the view is absolutely breathtaking. We received a home cooked meal from Stephanie 4 times, she is a great cook. We also went on hiking tour with Terry through the rainforest, which was a true unique experience. The villa had everything one could need. Qua location, it's also ideal. You're close to one of the best beaches on the island, and of course have the pitons right in front of you, driving to near by cities is in most cases not more than 1.5 hours away and one can buy plenty (qua food and drinks) in the town nearest by. This was an exceptional holiday, largely in part due to this beautiful villa, it's staff and the owners!
As all the previous reviews have said this Villa was amazing from start to finish. Michael provides excellent communication pre arrival and responds rapidly to any queries and has a team of fantastic staff. Stephanie and the housekeeping team are friendly but discrete and go out of their way to be helpful.
Terry the gardener is a a treasure - so knowledgeable and has created an amazing oasis over the last 35 years working at the Villa. We went with him into the rainforest and this really was a highlight for us and highly recommend it.
Clavie as others have said is friendly , knows everyone and has great suggestions for excursions making the most of your days. He is very flexible and happy to help you plan your days out.
We had Stephanie bring up groceries for us which was very helpful and her cooking is fantastic - we had her cook 4 meals for us over our stay.
The pictures do not fully do the villa justice - they are fantastic but it is difficult to portray the beauty of the garden setting and the spaciousness of the villa in a few photos.You really are perched on the edge of the rainforest surrounded by hummingbirds and flowers!
I would highly recommend for a relaxing break but with plenty of local activities to try. We did trips to botanical gardens and waterfalls, boat trip with snorkeling, horse riding and ziplining and rainforest tour - all great.This really suits teenagers who were very happy with facilities and pool.
Thankyou all for a fantastic trip x
The villa was beautiful and the scenery out of this world, the photos dont do justice-staff couldnt do enough for you Clavie who took us around knew everyone and everything about the place,Stephney, a wealth of information and always at hand or at the end of a phone line, PK kept the pool in order and always smiling,Terry, a terrific Gardner ,who knew everything there is to know about plants in the rain forest and always obliging , all of them together made a wonderful staff team who made our holiday memorable and special one to remember. The two large mango trees with ripe mangoes.-absolutely delicious, thoroughly enjoyed it.
On a slightly down side, mosquitoes and other biting insects were a problem, with all the insect repellents we could spray and coils and nets couldnt contain it, We all got bitten badly.
Fans were not adequate to keep the heat away, nights were uncomfotable. missed not having airconditioning in the bed rooms. Maybe a television too in the lounge. for the people who couldnt sleep. Otherwise a perfect stay with stunning surroundings and obliging staff- just WOW!
Best View on the Island
This was our third vacation to St Lucia and the first with our children. The owners were extremely helpful both before making our decision on where to stay and throughout our stay. The staff was wonderful. The house was clean. The location was wonderful, secluded with an outstanding view of the Pitons. We enjoyed the decks off each room, the pool, and the proximity to Anse Chastenet. We had an amazing time during our week there and will always look back with fond memories of this wonderful family vacation.
