Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and I, our son and daughter in law and granddaughter stayed at the Villa for 8 days this summer. The stay was exceptional and we would recommend the Villa without qualification. The living room, dining area and pool area are all open air to the sea with world class views of the Pitons. The photos do not do it justice. The views are as good or better than at Jade Mountain, which is near by. The pool is small but construction is under way on a larger pool and 2 more bedrooms. Currently there are 5 bedrooms (4 air conditioned) and 3 baths. Although some of the reviews for some of the resorts had trouble with mesquitos, that was not our experience here.



The stay included a staff of 2 housekeepers, a cook and gardener.. Everything was very clean, with fresh linens daily. Also our laundry was done every day and neatly folded in our rooms on our return from our daily activities. The cook was wonderful making mostly local dishes which were delicious. She would do 3 meals a day if you wanted although at the beginning of the week we went over a menu and choose some meals to eat out.

There was internet access (bring your own laptop). Adult and child games, toys and DVDs were on premises.



The beach is a 10 minute drive and too far to walk. The Villa has a service pick you up at the airport and takes you to the Villa since it is difficult to find on your own. Our rental car was delivered to the villa the next day. I drove and we saw many of the island's attractions. However the driving is difficult to say the least. One local said if you can drive in St. Lucia you can drive anywhere. I have traveled all over the world and would agree. The road to the Villa is a real adventure but it is the same road to Jade Mountain.



This is an outstanding property especially for families and small groups. Don't let the driving keep you away.

Awesome for our Group of 15

  • 5 of 5

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!

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

Extraordinary views, beautiful home, lovely stafe

  • 5 of 5

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.

AMAZING

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.

GREAT

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Shattered every expectation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (our five children, their spouses/partners, our grandchild, my 89 y.o. mother) had a fabulous week at this amazing villa. The view is outstanding, the home is fabulous, and the staff is very attentive. A trip of a lifetime.

Car: recommended

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.
