Kermit O. purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Kermit O. chose Soufriere
Villa Piton is entirely unique as it sits squarely on the ridge between both the Gros Piton and the Petit Piton in a World Heritage Site with very few other homes or dwellings. At close to 1000 feet elevation you are peering at the Petit Piton two and a quarter miles away roughly half way up its southern flank.Its a rare and unique perspective when most homes claim to have a Piton view. Villa Piton sits on ONE PITON staring at the OTHER!
What makes this Villa unique
Villa Piton is one of only a very small number of private homes within the Piton Management Area, a World Heritage Site designated in 2004. Villa Piton actually is built atop the Piton Mitan Ridge linking the two pitons. In effect, the villa is actually built between the two mountains and not simply looking at them from afar. This perfect perspective is unrivaled for grandeur and breathtaking views 24/7!

Fabulous in every way!
Our stay at Villa Piton was extraordinary. The property and views of the Pitons and Caribbean Sea are like something out of a dream. The Villa provides the perfect setting to relax and unwind, or go out and explore. The town of Soufrière, restaurants and activities are just a ride away (we’d highly recommend renting a Jeep). The staff are so friendly and respectful of our privacy. They exemplify the warmth and hospitality that is the hallmark of the St Lucian people. We had Mary cook us curried Mahi Mahi, mac & cheese and a salad on our last night at Villa Piton. Mary’s cooking was the best dinner (delicious!!) we had during our stay in St Lucia and we had some amazing meals (at Jade Mountain, Dasheen, Fedo’s, TreeHouse, Apsara, etc). Staying at Villa Piton is the ideal setting for a truly unique and memorable St Lucian experience. We look forward to staying here again.
Very nice experience
Sandra and I spent a week at Villa Piton, and found it to be secluded, luxurious, and accessible, and we loved working with the house staff to learn much more about St. Lucians than we would have learned if staying at a resort. Would consider returning in a year or so, hopefully to share with others.
If we could rate this six 🌟 s we would!
The experience here was unbelievable. Never have we ever had such an amazing view and been welcomed by such an amazing staff. We will definitely be returning!
There is no words. A little piece of heaven. Book now. Go!
Best views in Soufriere!
My family just returned from Villa Piton late last night. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay for our trip. We knew the view would be amazing from the pictures, but it was even more stunning in person. Mary and Gregory treated us like family whenever they came to upkeep the villa. We were told by the owner Kermit, that Mary's cooking was amazing and that we should try it at least one night so we chose to have her cook the day we arrived since we had a long travel day. The food was so good, we had her cook again the night before we left! We ate at Hotel Chocolat, Ladera, The Mango Tree and Bamboo Restaurant and Mary's cooking was still some of our favorite meals. Blossom checked in with us at the beginning and end of out stay to make sure everything was perfect. They are all the sweetest people. We spent a good part of every day at Villa Piton but highly recommend doing the Tree to Bar experience at Hotel Chocolat and Castaway Tours with Paul and his sister for a history on Carib culture, a cooking lesson and food cooked on the beach in clay pots. Tet Paul Nature Trail was fun, but honestly, the views at the villa were just as good! We chose Soufriere rather than Castries to be in a more quiet area and don't regret it one bit! The road to Villa Piton is VERY narrow and winding, so if you are nervous about the driving, you may want to have Ben's Taxi take you out. We got used to it at the end, but it was quite the experience to say the least!
We were sad to say goodbye to Villa Piton. It was truly paradise!
Villa Piton is a true gem! The views are amazing and the property is quite unique with a lot of open space, a fantastic master bedroom and nicely decorated throughout. The staff was very attentive and helpful. Mary's culinary skills are very good and we would recommend everybody to try them out at least a couple of times. Kermit was a pleasure to deal with and probably the fastest to respond of all the owners we have ever dealt with on HomeAway or VRBO. Thank you for letting us use your wonderful house!
Thank you for choosing our St Lucia home Villa Piton Caribbean Castle for your vacation! It was a pleasure working with you and we’re delighted you enjoyed your time there! We’d love to host your family anytime and wholeheartedly recommend you to hosts anywhere! Again, thank you and safe travels!
Located just 8 miles south of Soufriere, between the Pitons, Villa Piton is close to numerous attractions for all ages and yet privately located at the same time. Its a quick 15 minute drive to Soufriere for supplies. Along the way you may discover mangos are falling making it the perfect time to collect some for Mango Daiquiris later that evening! Or you may spy some nutmeg or vanilla growing by the side of the road. We love to travel and explore everything thats growing and thriving in St Lucia. Its a jungle and parts are rainforest. It can shower little bits each day or not at all for weeks. Its always changing and always 85F and windy. We love the temperate climate and the warm caribbean waters for swimming. Snorkeling is a passion for our family and there's plenty to see and experience under water as above. There are local fishing villages nearby to obtain fresh tuna or red snapper for the lunch or evening meal and we enjoy watching the men bring the catch in. All in all its a wonderful country and our villa sits proudly in a wonderful part of it.
