Since our last commentary for tripadvisor on Villa Beach Cottages in 2004 we have returned every year for two months and it really has become our home from home. For us it is a haven of peace and tranquility within easy reach of the capital, Castries, and the entertainment area of Rodney Bay. The unfailingly pleasant and efficient staff, who we now consider as true friends, are mostly the same people as when we first visited. This is a sure sign of good management and continuity.
The idyllic situation of the property, right on the beach, is an attribute which is hard to beat. We have grown to love the island, with which we are now very familiar, having explored practically every nook and cranny thanks to Coconut Car Rentals, available at VBC. For those not wishing to drive, the staff can arrange numerous tours and adventure trips tailored to the needs of the guests.
Of course, not to be missed, is the Hunte family plantation, La Dauphine, with its new infinity pool and lush vegetation. The flowers and the whole plantation are a credit to the Estate Manager. The welcome given by the Housekeeper/cook is heartwarming. The Dauphine is situated in the South in close proximity to the world renowned Pitons.
The accommodation and facilities at both properties are first class, carefully maintained and extremely comfortable and practical.
We cannot praise the VBC and Dauphine staff and many amenities enough. As far as weareconcerned Colin Hunte has opened up the gates to paradise .
