Beautiful villa in a idyllic location
We had the most amazing time at Bananaquit House! The villa is really beautiful, loads of space, wide views of sea and the pitons. The staff are lovely, they look after you, make you feel at home and cook really tasty Caribbean dinners so you can focus on unwinding! The road leading up to the house is very windy and bumpy but adds to the experience, would recommend hiring a car or booking taxis to get around. Anse Chastnet beach is a walk or short drive away and you can find the best fish burgers in town on a more secluded beach around the bay.
Spacious and relaxing property with the best view on the Island.
The property is fantastically located with great views of Soufriere and the Pitons. It's very peaceful, bar the occasional party boat passing by in the bay below.
It's a great base for exploring the South of the island or just relaxing with a book on the terrace.
Rooms are all large and come with mosquito nets (which you should use). The common areas are large, spacious and very clean.
The swimming pool is of a decent size and has a great view of the sunset in the evenings. There are table tennis tables near the pool but the paddles have suffered a bit in the tropical climate so it would be worth bringing your own.
Anse Chastenet and Anse Mamin beaches (I prefer Anse Mamin) are fairly easily walkable from the house but it's a hot climb back up :)
The staff are very friendly and helpful with cooking and laundry on request. They did some great local side dishes for us that lasted a couple of days in the fridge and served us for lunch and dinner.
The roads are not great in the immediate surroundings, so local taxis are probably the way to go for transport.
Overall we had a great time.
This property exceeded every expectation. From booking to end. The property is was gorgeous in every way, the most pleasant and helpful staff. Booking this property was the best idea and an epic venue for our wedding. We can not say enough great things about our experience at bananaquit villa. The villa was extremely beautiful, spacious, and the view ...... oh my the view !! Sam was amazing with all of our questions and promptly resolved and and all with professionalism and in a timely manner. My wife and I are world travellers and have stayed all over the world, by far Sam, the staff and the bananaquit villa is a must do for any occasion. Thank you again Sam!!! We will be back
Awesome for our Group of 15
We had 8 adults and 7 kids, ranging from 8 to 13) with us on this trip and the house is laid out so we never felt that there wasn’t enough room.
The cook and housekeeper and groundskeeper were all super friendly, helpful and the food was delicious. It’s not easy to cook for 15 every day!
The house was exactly as represented in the photos, the view was amazing, the pool was big and clean and the beds were comfortable.
Soufriere itself is a little sketchy, we didn’t venture in too much with the exception of a daily trip to the grocery store for supplies. I’ve been a lot of places in the Caribbean, Soufriere wasn’t exactly run down but I would say it was the “wrong side of town” for many reasons, a lot of the inhabitants looked to be addicts. We wouldn’t want to go at night, put it that way, but we didn’t feel unsafe during the day.
Sam was good at communicating our questions about the house.
For the price, it can’t be beat!
Extraordinary views, beautiful home, lovely stafe
What can I say about Bananaquit...the views will be imprinted in our minds and hearts forever. How blessed our group of 13 (9 adults, 4 kids) felt while there and continue to feel whenever we think of the house.
The VIEW!!! Wow - it truly is spectacular and special. It can't be overstated
The STAFF!!! They were all really lovely. There every day but not intrusive at all. Incredibly helpful and accommodating!
The GROUNDS!!! We all felt like we were living in a treehouse for a week...in the best possible way. You'd wake up with the birds chirping which was wonderful.
The rooms were lovely...very different configurations throughout... I would recommend they add a detailed layout on the listing...it was tough to decipher the rooms, beds, etc. Note that the 3rd bed in the room with the bunk bed is really a 'toddler' bed and the 7th bedroom is really under the awnings and doesn't have a door.
NOT SO GREAT
The ROAD! Wow - you really do need to be an expert and super confident driver to use the roads. They are unpaved, bumpy, narrow and the blind curves are ridiculous. But of course that's not the fault of the house or owners...just think it's important to state.
The BUGS! - Again the nature of the house, open air, with some rooms havivng shutters and no glass for windows, being so open to the elements comes with its challenges. Bring plenty of bug spray and plan accordingly!
Overall we LOVED Bananaquit and would totally recommend it. It is a special place and the memories made there will last us a lifetime.
Beautiful House with Wonderful Staff
We stayed at the house with 4 other couples, everyone had a wonderful time. The house is beautiful and the staff are wonderful. The pictures cannot portray how wonderful the view, the pool and the rooms are. This was a great fit for what we wanted to do. We had rental cars, so we were able to go wherever we wanted when we were out and about.
If you are not familiar with the road to Anse Chastenet it is a very rough road, but once you are use to the drive it is not a problem.
Anse Chastenet offers some of the best scuba diving in St. Lucia, with regular trips around the reef and wrecks.
Nearby are several other beaches, including Jalousie, between the Piton mountains. With its white sands, shallow and calm waters, this beach is ideal for children.
