I wanted to spend more time, closer to friends in the capital, so one of them picked Poinsettia Apartments as the place for me to stay on this last visit. I stayed at the Poinsettia Apartments from April 26, 2006 to May 20, 2206. This place is as pretty as the flower it is named for. I had one of their apartments on the top floor. This is a small family owned buisness, but with all the flair, attention and kindness to their guests, as any five star establishment. I enjoyed the view of the harbour from my windows. I had no terrace for this apartment, but there is a large common terrace which is great to sit out and have drinks while you watch the boats come in.
My apartment was clean and well decorated. It's a very big apartment, with a full kitchen, and all your kitchen equipment is provided, right down to wine glasses. I had a large bedroom with a full bathroom, very big showers. I especially liked that I had my own private entrance. There is parking for about six vehicles. There were many fruit trees on the grounds where you were encouraged to help your self at any time. Some days, the mangoes were brought to our door. It was such a pleasant surprise, because I was looking forward to spending my visit at another resort, but I was encouraged to try this one first. I will definately go back. The owner who checked me in, and made sure I was comfortable by giving me details where she could be reached in case of an emergency or if I needed her for anything. I found it to be a very special attention to detail. I needed to extend my trip by a few more days and they were so kind in accommadating my request. It's a gated vacation resort, and it also has a large swimming pool and housekeeping services if you need it. I was there for the Jazz Festival season, so iit was nice to be able to take the 20 to 30 minute walk into the city., and enjoy Jazz in the Square or at Place Carenage. The produce food market, grocery store and tourist vendors market.were neraby also. Jazz at Pointe Seraphine was only a 10 to 15 minute walk also..
I felt quite safe at this vacation site. This is my second vacation site in St. Lucia this year and it is quite a Jem. Poinsettia Apartments is going down in my book, as a place to book on my next visit to St. Lucia. I have passed on the word to many family and friends about this wonderful vacation/apartment. This is another winner! Thanks to everyone at Poinsettia Apartments, I give you a 100% mark. I hope to see you soon
