About Julia & Alison

We are sisters, Alison & Julia, living less than a mile apart in a village just outside London, England. Our two families bought the villa together after falling in love with the beautiful island of St Lucia on a family holiday.

Julia & Alison purchased this villa in 2008

Why Julia & Alison chose Gros Islet

Villa Carouge is primarily our 'holiday retreat' and we have done our best to create a beautiful and comfortable 'home from home' for our large extended family to enjoy.

We allow a limited number of rentals throughout the year.

What makes this villa unique

The villa has beautiful views across the golf course and the security of a gated community. Villa Carouge reflects our love of St Lucia, with many local pictures and artefacts; it is well maintained and cared for and our guests appreciate its comfort and homeliness.

Perfect Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Great accommodation, everything you need for a relaxing & comfortable stay. The vila is in a great complex, secure and tranquil. The communal pool and gardens are beautiful. The villa is in a quiet area but not cut-off community cas en bas beach is close and is only a short ride away from Rodney Bay. Would thoroughly recommend.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Great accommodation and a warm welcome from Welcome. Large airy bedrooms with comfortable beds and good size bathrooms with plenty of towels. Very quiet on the complex while we were there so pretty much had the pool to ourselves, lovely having our own plunge pool too. The apartment is equipped with a BBQ for a bit of al fresco dining and there are beach chairs for use when you venture to the beach. Would recommend this property and location but a car is a must as you have to drive to get restaurants and shops ( 10 mins drive). There is a beach 10 minutes walk away but it's situated on the Atlantic Ocean rather than the more gentle Caribbean Sea.

Excellent break, beautiful villa and setting

  • 5 of 5

Tastefully decorated, every facility we needed. Beautiful and relaxing views. I have no complaints or criticisms. Communication with Alison and the island host was really good. The villa was situated in an attractive complex, gated, secure. Our view from the terrace was so relaxing. Very quiet but accessible to restaurants and sites, although a taxi or hire car needed to get to main social hubs. Beaches, an easy walk.Very comfortable beds. Clean. Just perfect really.

Lovely villa on a beautiful island!

  • 5 of 5

Escaped from the cold & damp winter in the UK to spend two wonderful weeks at Villa Carouge.

The villa is perfect! Well equipped, tastefully decorated, clean and well maintained. The kitchen has everything you need; plenty of pots, pans and utensils, as well as many basic food items.

All of which meant we were able to cook at home, both in the kitchen and on the barbecue. We spent many evenings eating outside on the patio and chatting until late.

The bedrooms are all en-suite, great if you are travelling with friends. They all have comfortable beds and plenty of storage and are nicely furnished.

There are 2 comfortable sun loungers on the terrace (a good place to catch the morning sun) and four more on the patio.

Most afternoons were spent lazing around the pool.

The villa owners and property manager were all most helpful before and during our stay and dealt with all of our queries promptly.

We had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed St Lucia and our stay at the villa, we will definitely return!

A pleasant villa holiday ruined by lack of maintenance and misrepresentation

  • 1 of 5

Outwardly this looked a lovely villa in which to spend our month vacation. However, one of the w.c's was already blocked. Two weeks into our stay we returned to the villa after playing golf, to find there was no running water. No showers, no toilets, no cooking. The property manager did not deign to attend merely sending a plumber who said the tank needed replacement as it was rusted through and her would return in the am.Nothing was offered by the manager so we had to eat out without showers. the next day we waited in but no plumber. we went to golf and returned to no water again until 6pm. The last week of our stay, we returned to again find no running water. The manager sent the plumber who said it was an electrical fault. No water, no showers again. Electrician the manager said would arrive at 8.30am - he came at 11.30am. He had to go to get a part. We returned that afternoon to- no water - now it was the water pump. The water finally worked at 5.00pm on our last day and all because of poor maintenance planning and, if the manager had attended the first time, she could have assessed the pump was damaged after no water the first time. Through all of this we were not offered alternative bathroom facilities and had to eat out and buy bottled water to flush toilets and wash. The villa has only lounge seats for 4 people as the sun loungers and the outside couch and a chair were broken. The brochure and the owner promised special villa discount for golf, but there was none. It also promised a discount card and full use of the gorgeous Cap Maison facilities - this was presented to us on our last day. The owner rebuked me for remonstrating with the manager who failed to properly address two serious occurences and continued to misrepresent the true situation. We have all of the emails to confirm this ruined vacation.

Owner's Response: We are saddened that Cary T and his wife did not enjoy their stay at Villa Carouge and disappointed and surprised at his unfair and unbalanced review. Our Villa is maintained to the highest standard and our guests have always complimented us on our ‘Home from Home’, as evidenced by all our other reviews which are, without exception glowing. Our HomeAway listing and photographs illustrate the love and pride we’ve invested in Villa Carouge and clearly show the facilities available, including seating inside and out; indeed, Cary T’s comments regarding seating are very odd as we have 6 sun loungers at the property plus patio seating for 10. Addressing Cary T’s complaints directly. When he informed our villa manager that one of the 4 toilets at the property was blocked, she arranged for it to be fixed, immediately; he himself deferred access to the plumber. A week later, at 5:22pm, Cary emailed our manager to say the water wasn’t running. The plumber arrived that same evening to discover the water tank had failed, requiring replacement. It was too late to source the necessary parts but the replacement was purchased and installed the following morning. Similarly, when a separate, unrelated problem caused another issue with the water supply, our manager promptly arranged for that to be rectified. It is very unfortunate and regrettable that 3 plumbing issues should occur during this guest’s stay. This is highly unusual and totally beyond our control. On each occasion, our highly efficient and professional villa manager, (untrained as a plumber), dealt with the problems swiftly and sensitively. In answer to the allegation that we misled Cary by "misrepresentation”, this is utterly false. He selected the villa through HomeAway after viewing the listing where nowhere are discounts of any description mentioned. As a courtesy and only after Mr T had booked the villa and paid his deposit, was he was emailed an info only villa guide; this was a year before his holiday. In the meantime, some arrangements we had with third party providers were withdrawn, completely beyond our control. Nevertheless, our villa manager secured a special ‘golf club deal’ for Cary and his wife, at his request. Cary T was particularly rude and displayed a total lack of respect towards our villa manager to which, understandably, I took exception; she is exceedingly helpful, accommodating and well respected in St Lucia, and always does her utmost to ensure our guests enjoy their stay.

Lovely Place to spend a Month!

  • 5 of 5

Just finished a wonderful 28 day stay at the Villa Carouge - part of the Villas on the Green complex. The villa was perfect to accommodate my family for the first week, my friends for the second part, & lastly my sisters. Having 3 bedrooms with ensuites was nice. The kitchen was the perfect size but we lived on the terrace - nice & big with both shade & sun as well as an overhang to protect us during the quick rain showers we encountered. Thank heavens the communal pool was completed as Cotton Bay Resort - a 10 minute walk down the road is like a ghost town since the "hotel/resort" part of it closed. There are still some people living and renting the villas but not many villas look occupied. Very sad since I am sure it was beautiful in its heyday. The Atlantic Beach "Cas En Bas - Plantation Beach" is very "chill" and great for kiteboarders. Rodney Bay town is great for grocery shopping - 3 grocery stores to choose from as well as lots of restaurants. We rented a car for the month and I am glad since in order to go to the Caribbean Beaches - we needed the car. Went to the Pigeon Island Beaches plus did the sightseeing as well as toured all over the island. The favourite activities were the catamaran & scuba/snorkelling boat rides down the Caribbean coast. Andre & Helen from Costless Rent A Car were stellar and oh so friendly and helpful. Actually, most of the St. Lucians were lovely people - nice, interesting and willing to help. James, who drove us at night in his minivan (Thank you Welcome, the manager for recommending him) was great. The use of the Cap Maison Resort Card was a nice touch - enjoyed a few lunches there with my guests - the views overlooking the Caribbean are awesome. All in all a great trip made comfortable with the lovely Villa Carouge. Thank you. Ontario, Canada

Villa Carouge is located within villas on the green, a quiet gated community with it's own swimming pool and beautiful landscaped gardens that border St Lucia's only 18 hole championship golf course. Situated on the stunning Cap Estate on the north east coast of St Lucia, Villa Carouge is a place to relax and unwind, on the most beautiful island in the Caribbean.

The secluded and unspoiled beach of Cas en Bas in Plantation Bay is an easy 5 min walk away where you can sample the local cuisine and ambience of the locals own beach bar, Marjorie's.

Rodney Bay Marina is a short 10 min car ride away and boasts great value restaurants and bars overlooking the bustling Marina. Just half a mile further takes you into the new shopping mall, selling everything from groceries to designer name clothes and duty free diamonds.

There are a myriad of restaurants to choose from in the area, all within easy reach of the villa.

Other Activities: Kite surfing

Golf: The villa backs on to the only 18 hole golf course on the island.

The golf club welcomes non-members and equipment is available for hire.
