Overview

About the property

Villa in Marigot Bay, St Lucia, Caribbean - A Short Walk To Marina Village With It's Bars, Restaurants And Amenities And La Bas Beach

Plantation style villa built in 2006 combining the Caribbean influence of hard wood floors, high ceilings and ceiling fans with the elegance of old English style comfortable sofas, antique and pine furniture and colourful rugs. An eclectic mix of artworks adorn the walls throughout and numerous table lamps provide soft lighting to complement the warm tropical evenings. Dining on the deck at the table which can seat up to 10/12 people looking at the twinkling lights of the boats anchored in the bay and the houses around the hillsides is a magical experience. The ground floor is open plan with 4 sets of French double doors to the deck and an open wood staircase ascending in front of an arched 2 storey window to the front, allowing maximum light. The pool is just 5 steps down from the ground floor deck and is surrounded by a wooden deck with sun loungers and privacy providing bougainvillea and other climbing flowers to one side and a small lawn and trees to the other. Below are palms and fruit trees including mango, grapefruit, lime and bananas. If you are there when the trees are in fruit you can just pick your own delicious and healthy breakfast. All three spacious first floor bedrooms open onto the upper deck and spectacular views over the visiting mega yachts in the bay and out to sea. There are no houses surrounding the villa so total privacy is ensured.

About Maggi Harrison

Maggi Harrison has now returned to Henley on Thames after living in St. Lucia for the past 9 years. She has lots of experience in hospitality and has managed and been house concierge to many properties in St. Lucia. She knows the island inside out and therefore can give lots of tips on how to get the best out of your holiday.

Why Maggi Harrison chose St Lucia

A friend was left several acres of land in Marigot Bay by his godfather. As I was looking for a new adventure and had honeymooned in St. Lucia many years earlier I asked if I could buy a plot which I subsequently did in 2004. In 2005 I moved to the island and designed and started the house build which was completed in 2007. I have now returned to the UK and would be thrilled for others to enjoy my lovely house.

What makes this villa unique

I particularly love the privacy of the property and the fact that there are no houses overlooking me. Every bedroom overlooks the pool and the bay and in the grounds I have mangos, grapefruit and bananas for a fresh fruit breakfast.

Amazing private home overlooking Marigot Bay!

  • 5 of 5

Don't hesitate to book Bois Rouge! This home has it all from the moment you walk in the front door there are expansive views of Marigot Bay and the Carribean Sea from all bedrooms and living spaces. We loved watching the boat activity in the harbor. Marigot attracts the mega yachts and world sailboat travelers. There's a lot of nice outdoor space overlooking the large pool and sea. This was our first trip to St. Lucia. We found the location to be perfect. Staying in Marigot gives you the opportunity to meet locals and get a real feel for the island. Our favorite adventures included going on boat rides south to explore the many beaches near the Pitons. Anse Chastenet and Jealouise were our favorites. I recommend talking to the house manager Cornelius about this or Shashamane a local boat out of Marigot. To the north is more populated with hotels, restaurants and the capital Castries and Reduit beach. Both were quite nice it just depends what you prefer. We really enjoyed the lush rainforests and secluded beaches headed south but the location set in the middle of both gives you the opportunity to enjoy it all. Marigot Bay has a lot to offer too. The villa sits up on the hill. You can walk down to the harbor but the road is very steep. There is a water taxi that takes you across the bay. For an upscale dinner we recommend the Rainforest cafe. Doolittles was fun too, more laid back and good for the kids. They have pool tables and outdoor areas for the kids to explore. This was a trip we'll never forget. Maggi the owner is very helpful and the booking process was a breeze. She has an excellent team that made us feel most welcome. Pauline and Cornelius the house managers are the perfect hosts (they even went out of their way to help me with the delivery of my lost bag from the airlines). We really enjoyed getting to know Lion too, the pool/garden guy! Everyone made us feel so welcome! Bois Rouge is a very private, hidden gem surrounded by beautiful gardens and amazing views!

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two children and I had a lovely time at this terrific villa: very well-laid out, relaxed, with a nice pool and perfectly placed for privacy while still being able to take advantage of proximity to local shops and beach. The caretaker Pauline and her husband are very available for any issues if necessary, but those in search of quiet time away from it all in a beautiful setting, this is perfect.

Lovely, but....

  • 3 of 5

This home has many good qualities. The house is lovely, the view unbeatable, the pool refreshing, and the grounds lush. We are a family of 5 and overall our stay was memorable.

We had several issues but Pauline was wonderful in responding.

The largest issue is the lack of proper cooking equipment. The pots and pans have wiggly handles or none at all. For many being on vacation would mean eating out every meal, but I tend to cook in because I have a son with celiac disease. We found it difficult to cook more than 1 thing at a time for lack of usable pans.

Overall we had a nice stay.

Owner's Response: I am pleased that my guests enjoyed the villa and especially its wonderful location. However, I find it rather strange that they are posting a review a year after their stay in March 2016. But I am more concerned about their comments on the condition of the kitchen equipment. If they had mentioned this to my House Manager at the time then any unusable pans would have been replaced immediately but she was never made aware of their concerns and is really surprised to read their comments only now. When I had personally checked out the villa at the beginning of the season the previous November I did not notice any issues with kitchen equipment. I would like to assure any future guests that all the kitchen items are safe to use and more than sufficient in number to cater for the maximum number of 8 guests.

An elegant, timeless retreat in a tropical paradise!

  • 5 of 5

The minute you arrive, you know you have found a very special place. The villa is architecturally very impressive. It is spacious and airy with exceptionally high ceilings. There is beautiful dark wood flooring and ceilings which offer a welcome relief from the intense tropical sunshine. There was always a breeze and the villa never was hot. The open air porches, on 2 levels, are immense and extremely pleasant with gentle breezes and protection from the sun. The most ideal place to read books is in the cozy wicker seating area; the view, however, is quite a distraction from the reading! We ate dinner outside every evening and the crickets and other jungle-y noises only added to the experience. The villa is also very cozy in the evening with lots of warm lighting from the many table lamps. There are ceiling fans in every room and we never felt the need for a/c. And this is just the villa! The grounds are very well maintained with lots of beautiful gardens and fruit trees. The views are jaw-dropping, and not fully captured in the photos here. There is a 270 or so degree view with so much visual complexity from the view of the horizon and Caribbean Sea, to the harbor, yachts moving about and their mast lights twinkling in the evening in Marigot Bay, to the surrounding mountains and villas in the distance and all the flowers, banana and palm tress and tropical greenery. The pool is large and deep and refreshingly cool. The location is exceptionally private, yet very near to the marina (a very steep drive or walk). The restaurants along the bay are excellent, and the yachting scene in the inner harbor very vibrant and beautiful. Pauline manages the property and is a wonderful resource for any questions you may have. Her husband, Cornelius offers a magnificent boat trip to some of the other great attractions of the island including the famous beaches, Anses Chastenet and Sugar, for lunch and snorkeling and a full-on up close tour of the Pitons from the water - not to be missed. This was our first trip to St. Lucia, and we very much hope to return to this wonderful villa overlooking Marigot Bay. Five stars!

Une maison très agréable dans in site merveilleux

  • 5 of 5

Nous y avons passé une semaine très agréable avec un couple d'amis. La maison est tout a fait conforme à sa description et la vue des terrasses est plus belle que ce que qu'on avait imaginé. Nous y avons pris tous nos repas ne se lassant pas de la vue sur la baie, la marina et le va et vient des voiliers. Les chambres sont spacieuse et donnent sur la terrasse. On peut se rendre à la marina où on trouve de bons restaurants et une petite épicerie, par une marche de 10 à 15 minutes. Un peu essoufflant au retour! Highly recommanded.

Map

Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

The south side of the bay is a 10 minute max walk down from the property. The local ferry takes a couple of minutes to reach the north side of the bay and the beach where sun loungers and a variety of water sports are available. There are numerous other beautiful beaches and excellent resorts to the south of Marigot along the west coast road. Rodney Bay with its large marina and international hotels and bars and restaurants and famous Pigeon Island is 45 minutes drive north.

Travel:

Approx. one hour drive north from Hewanorra International airport and 30 minute drive north to George F.L. Charles inter island airport. Castries, the capital, is 20 minute drive north. The large supermarket is in Cul de Sac 10 minutes drive.

Hewanorra airport (international) is 1 hour drive from the property. George FL Charles airport (inter island) is 30 minutes drive to the north.

Distances:

Approx. 20 minute drive north to Castries, the capital, with its colourful and bustling covered market selling clothes and souvenirs, spices and local provisions. A further 20 minutes north is Rodney Bay, the international area. To the south Soufriere is a one hour drive south down the west coast road. The nearest supermarket is in Cul de Sac just 10 minutes drive from Marigot.

Further Details:

Marina Village in Marigot Bay has a bank, mini mart, a spa, coffee shop and restaurant, international clothing and gift shops. From there you can walk along the dock and check out the visiting megayachts or walk the surrounding hillsides – you will see a different view around every corner. At the ferry dock take the quick ferry ride to the lovely La Bas beach where you can just sunbathe or enjoy the excellent variety of water sports available. You can kayak or canoe or sail around the bay and beyond to the pretty little Trou Rolland cove and Roseau beach. Hire a car and you can explore all the quiet lushness of the rainforests – hike one of the many trails or even climb a majestic Piton or just refresh yourself in a cooling waterfall. You can zipline or, more leisurely, glide through the rainforest on a gondola. Horseback ride on a beach or just sun yourself on one and swim and snorkel and relax. There are tropical gardens to visit and of course the unique drive in volcano and sulphur springs to experience. Be back in Marigot Bay to watch a stunning tropical sunset with a sundowner in hand before preparing to enjoy the diverse dining delights of one of the three waterside restaurants or the two hotels – the 5 star Capella or the fun filled Marigot Beach Club with the famous Doolittles bar and restaurant. Of course if it is Friday you might want to experience the Friday Fish Fry night in Anse le Raye a small unspoilt fishing village just south of Marigot. Tomorrow is another day.
