I have been fortunate enough to visit St Lucia 9 times in the last 2 years. I have stayed in several all-inclusives as well as guesthouses and apartments. I must say that as far as apartments and guesthouses go, the Poinsettia Apartments cannot be outdone. From the very first interaction with the sisters that manage the apartments, I was made to feel at home and very well taken care of. They are efficient and on top of things at all times with excellent communication skills.
The apartments themselves are exceptionally furnished with lots of extra thought to things that you might need in the kitchen. I do a ton of cooking and was always feeding between 4 and 10 people and found everything I needed to be able to do so comfortably. The bedrooms, bathrooms, and living areas are also very nicely furnished. One thing that I really appreciated was that even though I was staying monthly, they put a shampoo and soap in the apartment so that I had something to start with until I could get to the store and purchase my own. They also had put some fruit and coffee in the kitchen and a few essentials in the fridge as well. I felt that this was going above and beyond and it was soooo appreciated!!!! Anything that we needed in addition to what was provided was supplied for us with a smile. There are washers/dryers, converters, and adapters in the apartments also. There is a fan in the living room and a/c in the bedrooms. Everything you need for your comfort is there for you.
The location is excellent! It is very close to town and yet is extremely quiet. We walked to town every day and were able to catch the bus very close to the apartment when we wanted to go to other parts of the island. Vigie Beach is very close as well and is a wonderful long beach that is particularly great on a Sunday afternoon in St Lucia. Sandals dive center is very near to the apartments as well if you would like to go diving. If you would like the specifics on how to get there and how to dive with them, just message me and I will give you details. They are a wonderful dive team and the prices are very reasonable and all of your equipment is included. You can also take a catamaran cruise very near to the apartments as well.
The grounds are kept very clean and organized at all times and there are tables, chairs and umbrellas to keep you comfortable. The pool was always spotless and the roof top deck is a very relaxing place to be. This is a quiet place and yet there is a nice sense of community. This is a gated area as well as having individual alarm systems in the apartments. I'm telling you, they pay attention to comfort and details at Poinsettia!!! We felt very safe at all times and had no need to use the alarm system, but it was nice having the option. There are two wonderful mango trees on this property and it was a beautiful surprise to come home to fresh, ripe mangoes on our doorstep.
This is a truly wonderful spot to stay in St Lucia. Believe me, I have stayed in lots of different places and this is a fantastic choice! They have nightly, as well as extremely affordable monthly rates. You will not be disappointed if you choose to stay here!!! This is my new home away from home and I can't wait to go back!
