Exceeded our expectations !!

  • 5 of 5

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 view is better than the pictures.

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Beautiful Villa !!! Amazing View !!

  • 5 of 5

We,2 couples rented the lower level of the Villa,using 2 of the 3 bedrooms.The home is exactly as the pictures show...absolutely gorgeous!Bedrooms are large w king size beds and mosquito netting,one bedroom has an ensuite bathroom,and there is large main bathroom.The kitchen is well stocked, there is a huge table for dining at..furniture is all new.There are lots of towels, beach towels as well, so need to take your own.

The pool is good for cooling off in,as it gets very hot laying on the pool chairs when the sun is shining.Carlos is always cleaning the leaves out of it, so it was lovely and clean.You can not see homes from here, but there are none right beside the Villa, so you have lots of privacy.We could hear the music at night from the bars down in Marigot Bay though because it was so quiet.

We had dinner one night at Doolittle's,and another at Chateau Mygo, both were very good. We had a rental SUV, so we drove down and back..you could probably walk down if you didn't have a vehicle, but you would probably want to take a taxi back up if you were coming back up at night. There is a BBQ, and briquettes at the villa if you wanted to BBQ there.

The landscaping is beautiful, and Carlos is always working on it, keeping it maintained. The view from the Villa is stunning...looking down on Marigot Bay, and out to the ocean.

We went to Ti Kaye beach to snorkel one day, and this was a great decision, as the current does not try to pull you out, and the water is fairly shallow to snorkel in. We saw lots of fish, the beach is nice..not much shade though..there is also a bar, of course, to get drinks and food. I had a Rum Punch there at Happy Hour..2 for 1...wow !! lots of rum in that drink !! Ti Kaye was about a half hour away, well worth the drive.

We also went to Castries one afternoon to the Market, and dinner..it is probably about a half hour the other direction.

There are a set of binoculars in the Villa, which was nice for looking at the ships and sailboats on the ocean, and dice and Yahtzee score pads so you can play a game in the evening if you want.

I will say that if you are not getting picked up by the owners or Carlos, that I would suggest that you not try to navigate the road up there with a car. We were driving a small SUV, and we were happy we were..parts of the road are quite steep, have large potholes and rocks.When we went, there was no sign at the Villa, but will probably have one by now.

I would highly recommend it !
