We were looking for a safe, clean, quiet, and reasonably priced 2 bedroom place to stay in the NW part of the island, that had a kitchen and amenities of a home, in order to attend a wedding, and this is the place! This is more like a 3-unit condo. The roads in St Lucia aren't well marked, and even though we took a wrong turn (going an hour out of our way towards Marigot Bay), Vince arranged for the rental car to be waiting for us at the airport, and was waiting along the road in Gros Islet for us to go by, spotted us and stopped us and we followed him in his truck, to the apartment. He then offered to show us around the town, and spent the evening driving us around Rodney bay, pointing out restaurants, grocery stores, and points of interest and activities. He also drove us to the wedding location, so we could find it easily on our own later. We were happy to learn that the apartment has UK and USA type electrical wiring, so you can bring and use your own hairdryer, electric shaver etc.The bedrooms were air-conditioned, and ceiling fans were throughout the house. Each upstairs bathroom has it's own shower, with good water pressure. The apartment is right on the bus route, gated, has an alarm system and is watched carefully by the owner. We did not use the plunge pool. The rental car that went with the apartment was a Suzuki SUV, and clean. Vince also obtained a drivers license for us and had it available when we arrived-a $20 fee). Driving on the left side of the road was different. Bring your own toiletries and wash cloths. Bottled water was waiting in the refrigerator. There were mosquitoes, so you will need insect repellent. The neighbors were quiet, except for the rooster that wakes up at 3:30am. No dishwasher, but there is a much appreciated washer/dryer. Overall, good value and exceptionally thoughtful owner. We appreciated supplying our own room service. We stayed in the middle apartment. Vince supplied us with a personal cell phone to use while there (our Verizon phones did not work on the island), and he exceeded our expectations, exceptionally kind and thoughtful.
