About Greg Skinner

SunWest has grown from a love of the island, St. Lucia. This love affair began in 1992, when stepping off the plane felt like passing through a picture frame into another world. The lushness, stunning beauty, rhythmic sounds and friendly St. Lucian's made a yearly visit a necessity. With a background in Architecture and building, it seemed the natural progression to build in St. Lucia. Each time guests arrive, I feel like I am seeing St. Lucia through their eyes again for the first time. My goal is to make sure that my guests have the personalized type of vacation they have in their mind. If interested, I am here to help our guests customize their vacation to take in, see and experience the beauty of St. Lucia while on island so they will leave feeling that they have had the experience of a lifetime. Please take the time to read my daughter's poem which she composed at 13 years of age, following a vacation in St. Lucia. It explains why we always returned to our island in the sun.

Greg Skinner purchased this villa in 1999

Why Greg Skinner chose St Lucia

Home Away from Home....

There is a place far from here

where chimes of steel

sing songs, hot rays of sun pour from the sky.

Happy people dance and chant, with no worries or cares,

a place where you can be free.

It is not a normal place to my friends,

To me it is a home away from home.

It is a magical dream to them that they hope will come true.

To me it is where I spend my best years letting my feelings flow.

It is the hot, exotic pictures in magazines and shows to them.

To me it is where my soul can sing and my mind can relax.

It is what they all ask me about….

What is the sea, sand, weather, life like there?'

To me the sea is like a warm cola that has been

shaken, shattering refreshing, salty water

running down my body.

To me the sand is hot and grindy, melting through my toes.

To me the weather is refreshing, steamy but healthy.

To me life is free, no worries, no cares.

It is amazing to them, a dream, a fantasy.

To me, it is my life, my home, where I belong.

If they wish, I will continue to explain this dream,

but no matter how hard I try,

they will not be able to feel my heart pounding

when I speak of my

home away from home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Having traveled to many other Caribbean destinations in the past, I was looking for somewhere new to go as this vacation was a surprise for my wife's 40th birthday. Speaking to a good friend he highly recommended SunWest Villas and was told that I would not be dissapointed. He put me in touch with Greg who was very informative and explained in great detail all that he and the island had to offer. It was an extremely easy decision.



We were picked up at the airport and on the drive up to the villa Greg spoke to my wife and I about the history of the island as well as numerous tidbits about the areas we we passing through. He even stopped at a scenic lookout and took numerous photos of us. I could tell that Greg was very passionate about his love for St. Lucia and I was truely impressed with his knowledge of the island and it's people. Greg mentioned he had a surprise for my wife and upon arriving at the Villa we were upgraded to the 4 bedroom Grand Coyaba. This unit was unparalleled to anything we had stayed at before and the architecture is one of a kind. The views from all 3 levels was truly breathtaking.



The next morning Greg gave us an orientation tour with plenty of information on places to see as well as great local spots to eat at. He provided us a cellphone and complementary shuttle service around Gros Islet and the Rodney Bay area. Greg also offers guided tours of either the west coast or east coast of the island or both for a very reasonable rate. I would highly recommend it as you will have an opportunity to see not only the popular sites but other out of the way places. Definitely worth it.



All in all, this was the most relaxing and enjoyable vacation my wife and I have had. Greg and his wife were superb hosts and absolutely the reason we had such a memorable and fascinating trip. We will definitely be returning!



If you are looking for a truly amazing getaway then look no further as this is by far the best place to go. You will not be disappointed!

Coyaba Grand - Sun West Villas

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Coyaba Grand( 4 bedroom unit) for a week over Easter 2008 with our 2 young sons (8&5). Coyaba was a perfect location. It was out of the bustle of Rodney Bay, but RB was only a 2 minute car ride away. The Sun West compound was one of the quietest places I have ever stayed -- a big plus for a Caribbean vacation. The unit was 1st Class. Comfortable, clean and fully equipped. The boys loved the pool as did my wife and I. The decks were an added bonus; the views were great. Martha, the maid, was wonderful as well. She cooked a fantastic island dinner for us one night (my wife wanted to take her home). But what really put it over the top was Greg Skinner, the owner. Greg was the consummate host. He took his time to tell us about the island and to show us around. He was always available during the day for rides to RB, Pidgeon Island or other beaches(we didn't rent a car). As an aside, Rodney Bay has some great restaurants; we didn't have anything close to a questionable meal all week. We will certainly return to St. Lucia and Sun West Villa. As you can guess, we had a great time. Thanks Greg!

Coyaba Grand Sunwest Villas

  • 4 of 5

Coyaba Grand is a stunning villa and was spotlessly clean on arrival. Martha the cleaner came every few days and was excellent. Our only issue was the lack of air conditioning in the living area and top floor bedroom, and solely because of this we would not return to this particular villa in the future. A few basics such as bedside lamps, hairdryers in each room and a general updating of kitchen equipment would not go amiss. However, Greg the owner is a fantastic host and his knowledge of the island is second to none. Nothing was too much trouble and he was always very willing to assist us in anyway he could, including a trip to the medical centre. We would recommend the property if you are not concerned about the air conditioning. There are lots of activities on the island and we particularly enjoyed the segway tour and treetop zip lining, our visit to La Tille Waterfalls, the drive in volcano at Sulphur Springs and the beaches at Pigeon Island and Reduit. We had a fantastic, but very expensive meal at Big Chef Steakhouse and a more reasonably priced, early bird special at the Fire Grill which was also very good. At Rodney Bay Marina, Ocean Club is very good and Roti at the Bread Basket is excellent and very cheap!

Home Away From Home...

  • 5 of 5

As we all know when vacationing in a foreign country or just out of town, it's hard to decide where you will stay based on pictures from the resort's website. Well, have no fear... what you see here, is what you get! An awesome, clean place to stay that's only minutes away from action, but secluded enough to relax without the hustle and bustle of the city.

I would recommend this location for all vacationers and stay-cationers too! Greg goes out of his way to be sure you are comfortable, happy, and making the most out of your time while on the island. Just when you thought you had done it all, he has something or somewhere to share...

During our stay, we resided in the “Coyaba Grand” which afforded us enough space, privacy, and family time all in one. The selection was well worth it!

Thanks Greg for a wonderful stay and we will see you again on our next trip to SLU in 2013!

Loved our stay at Coyaba Grand!

  • 5 of 5

My family and extended family and friends vacationed in St. Lucia due to my niece’s wedding at Pigeon Island. SunWest Villa was better than the pictures/ The Coyaba Grand was sparkling clean, with a huge kitchen, dining room, living area, and outdoor patios to watch sunsets. The view is breathtaking and absolutely gorgeous. Flowers were in bloom everywhere and the pool was sparkling clean. What really made our trip special besides of all the "sites" was the hospitality of Greg. He took us on a tour of the island and told us where to eat, what to see. He didn't stir us wrong on any of his suggestions. One day I was left behind due to getting motion sickness and not handling the curves too well, so while floating in the pool Greg asked if I was up for a tour. He said, "Do you trust me" (knowing how I felt about diving on curves, well I did and I was one of those fortunate people who got to spend time seeing sites with Greg that I never would have experienced had I visited the Pitons with the rest of my family. Greg personally took me on a tour to a banana plantation and we got to raid some fruit and I got to see up close and experience what most tourists do not get to experience ever. Greg was kind enough to show me the lighthouse, the town of Castries, the Governor's house, and we stopped at the best bakery ever along the plantations. Greg is a very kind and generous man full of wit, intelligence of the island (the man is a walking encyclopedia of knowledge of St. Lucia) and just very generous and accommodating to make sure we were all comfortable. We never wanted for anything while staying there. I will miss talking to Greg and hearing all his funny stories. Greg always has a story to tell! The bride and groom were very disappointed with Sandals and said if they had to do over again they would have definitely stayed at Casaba Grand instead. Don't miss eating at the small eatery at Pigeon Island. Good local food. If you like Tandoori food, you must eat at Razmataz. Absolutely wonderful food. We plan on coming back over and over again and will absolutely stay at SunWest Villa. Greg makes it so very special...You just can't get that kind of service anywhere. Greg really cares about his guests and wants them to experience all that St. Lucia offers. Thanks Greg for the best time ever!

Wish I was still in the pool!

  • 4 of 5

Greg has put his heart and soul into Sunwest villas and it shows. He was very flexible to our group of 8's ever-changing needs. He gave us an extremely informative tour of the north of the island and ferried us around as much as any 'dad's taxi' could until sundown. After that I'd definitely recommend taking a taxi to your choice of restaurant (we particularly enjoyed the live band and succulent fish kebabs at Ti Bananne)

Personally, I loved lazing in and around the pool; the lads enjoyed chilling out in front of the TV in the spacious lounge and the girls found everything they needed in the fully-equipped kitchen when we decided to eat in.

The view of the sunset over Rodney Bay is definitely photo-worthy and lovely to watch from the huge balcony or (my personal favourite viewpoint) from the chaise-longue in the second floor bedroom.

Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Many thanks to Greg for making our stay in Saint Lucia a wonderful experience. Our accommodations were great and felt just like "home" away from home. Greg's orientation enabled us to jump into island life immediately so no precious holiday time was lost. Greg was always there to help and advise us. Without him, our trip would not have been so memorable.

A definite thumbs up on this property and its big "fringe benefit". (That's you Greg!)
