Excellent accommodation for the three couples. Owner and staff were very helpful
Beautiful and very comfortable home. A bit remote from town. A vehicle is a must for seniors. The owner and staff were very helpful and made a very positive difference to our vacation.
Exceeded our expectations !!
We made our trek with 4 couples each with 2 children, ages 3 (×2), 5 (×2) and our oldest being 13 (8 adults 8 children). We rented 4 suvs (recommend the suv) as the terrain is unbelievably mountainous, travel was normal for island driving but any road signs or destination signs are minimal.
Now I must inform you on how wonderful the grounds keeper/chef/tour guide and your general "get you whatever you desire" on site manager was!! Carlos lives on the grounds (which are marvelous) and made our trip unforgettable, he cooked us some local meals, fish we caught and introduced us to various great places to eat locally. If you intend on touring around the island (crazy if you don't) Carlos is there to help make arrangements for literally anything! He knows everyone! This location was a perfect fit for our group each family had their own space (lots of it) there is lots of kitchen space, sleeping space and the pool atmosphere was perfect, all with the beautiful view of marigot bay!! When we arrived at the airport we were greeted by our guide who lead us to villa makabu after making various stops to address all of our needs. This is a must if you want the True St.lucian experience!
The Reids, Taylors,Ducies and Palmateers
The view is better than the pictures.
The Villa was clean and had everything one would expect. The villa is well taken care of and is very modern in the inside. It was nice to have us picked up at the airport and taken to villa until our rental car was dropped off the following day. We were taken to the grocery store prior to arriving at the villa which was nice. We stayed in the upper unit and views were spectacular. It was nice to come back at the end of the day and take a dip in the pool. The wrap around balcony was huge and was nice to sit in the morning or evening and enjoy the view. The villa is all open air and has no air conditioning. There are ceiling fans which helped kept the house cool, however at night it still was kind of warm. Carlos the caretaker was very helpful in providing directions and telling us what things we could do. Carlos even made us fish cakes one night. He took us down to Marigot Bay the 2nd day to give us a brief tour. There are nice restaurants right in Marigot Bay. Rain Forest Restaurant is a great place to go for special occasions. Other nice restaurant were Private Bay and Doolittle's. For all these restaurants you take a small boat to cross the bay. There is plenty to do on the island. You definitely need a rental car. The Villa is up a winding road where many portions are very rocky. We drove down to Soufriere for the day. The roads are very winding and the drive was not the most relaxing. We ended up taking a boat down to Soufriere which was a better option and pretty. You can really see the coast line from the boat. St. Luica is a beautiful island and staying in the Villa made our trip special. The owner was great at responding to emails if you had questions and was always responsive.
Paradise! Absolutely Phenomenal
Wow, wow, wow. This villa is amazing, the pictures and all the amazing reviews are completely accurate. There is nothing to be desired! The pool, view, accommodations, furnishings and surroundings are beautiful and well cared for.
The villa is equipped with everything, really everything that you may need. From the fully stocked kitchen, to hammock to pool floaties, to wifi to charcoal bbq, to cleaning service, to binoculars to outlets for Canada and us devices, to local cell phone. It has it all!
The entire booking process, information and support from all the staff was well beyond our expectations. Everyone went out of their way to ensure that everything was seamless and we were well taken care of. Carlos really is the man! He was so kind and helpful and went out of his way to ensure we got to see and do everything we wanted to do. He was also really fun to spend time with!
All in all, if you are thinking about booking this place, DO NOT HESITATE!
A couple of Tips:
You should rent a car, it will be hard to get around without one.
You don't really need US currency, you could just bring EC, it would actually be easier IMO.
This Villa has spectacular views of Marigot Bay. The decks were amazing and provided all the tranquility a person could ask for. The home is well furnished and the staff Carlos and Miranda are exceptional. They not only cater to your needs but they also teach you about their culture and heritage. The road up the hill is a bit rugged, but the peacefulness and seclusion is priceless. It can be a little loud if others rent out the other unit during your stay as the villa is open air. We look forward to renting it out again with a much larger group next time.
Awesome house at a great location
This house is beautiful. I just wished my own house was this great. The master shower is awesome. The house is built so well and there is so much detail to the work in the quality of the house. The view from the house is worth a million bucks. It was so nice to BBQ and relax out there looking at the view. The location is in a quiet neighborhood with other nice homes. I felt safe at all times.
There is a local cell phone at the house for your own personal local use, which makes things so much nicer. There are extra towels and all the supplies you need in the kitchen.
Carlos was awesome and made some great food to snack on the day we arrived. Josie helped us so much on things to do and how to work things in the house. She was so helpful.
We walked down to Marigot Bay from the house a couple of times and enjoyed the restaurants there. We also walked to the little cove to go swimming and snorkeling. I wished we had more time there.
Would I book this place again? Most definitely. I wish I can go back next week. There is so much more we want to see and explore.
