“Perfect place in Paradise to reflect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2012

My friends and I spent the most memorable 5 days in villa # 3! If you are looking for alone time away from the world and time to reflect away from life. This is the place to be close to the airport and convienant. Words can not describe Castles in Paradise its the perfect place to be at. Judith, was a God sent and made everything run smoothly. We are planning are next trip back soon.

We have spent almost 2 weeks in one of the villas in this complex and were blown away by the location , views, amenities , superb service and pretty much everything about this place. What was very unique about the location is that we felt very safe and secure at all times without being isolated from a local life.
There are beautiful beaches , waterfalls , gardens, scenic viewpoints all within 10-15minutes drive. The entire complex is well maintained and cared for, the stuff was extremely friendly and helpful and so were the owners.
Our host Ms. Vernita treated us with perfect mix of professionalism and personal attention, taking care of all our needs , we felt very welcomed.
I’m already planning my next visit and I would not hesitate to recommend this place to anybody.

I had long term rent of one of the villas (#3) between 2009-2011. My visiting friends were renting short term (1-2 weeks) some of the villas during their stay in St. Lucia. Our verdict is that the Castles villas are probably the best villas available in St. Lucia. You get a gorgeous view; the swimming pools, the quiet environment, and a service that make you feel special each and every day. The beach is only 10 minutes away by car, but most probably you will never need it, since you will be spoiled by the swimming pool and the hospitality of the management. If you would like to go around the island- you can either rent a car, have a taxi arranged for you by the management (Ms. Zephirin), or take the local transportation to the beach, the sightseeing spots, or some other places on the island. The airport is 8 minutes away and is next to the beach. This is so convenient – so I usually check-in for my flight 2 hours ahead, then go for a 30 minutes swim in the ocean and then take the flight home. You will never have better stay than the Castles. Living in the “Castles in paradise” makes any other place on earth unacceptable and it is really hard to me and my family to move out of the island these days.

My husband and 3yr old son traveled to St. Lucia for a month long and was determined to find a place that would have accommodated our work needs while on vacation and also the needs of my toddler. This place was a perfect fit. We stayed in Villa # 4 which was fully furnished, laundry room, kitchen, very spacious, had great internet access. We also had access to a swimming pool with a mini bar. The only two things required were clothes and food. The supermarket and fishing complex is about 15 mins away in the town of Vieux-Fort. The owner of the property (Bonnie) was very helpful and was available 24/7. She assisted us in renting a vehicle for our stay and we even got a chance to meet her wonderful family during the Xmas holidays. The environs were very quiet, amazing view of the ocean, well manicured landscaping. Every day at 7 PM I remember seeing the security guards coming in to work the night shift, which made us feel safe. At nights, the moon shone brightly and the stars lit up the dark sky, my son's favorite memory of Castles.

My wife and I spent 5 peaceful nights at this location in early August 2010. This was our 3rd trip to Saint Lucia. In our previous two visits we stayed at Sandals Grande St. Lucian and Grand View Vacation Villas in Trouya, Gros Islet. This most recent trip was of a different aim. We wanted to visit Saint Lucia without the hassles of the capital city, Castries. Castles in Paradise is quiet and secluded. Vieux Fort, where the international airport resides, has all the necessary provisions. There are two chain grocery stores (Super J), several smaller independent grocers, the local farmers market vendors and fishermen on Clark Street.
The villas at Castles are clean and spacious, solidly built and secure.
The kitchen was more than adequate for our meals, all of which we prepared. Unfortunately, there are not yet enough noticable eateries in Vieux Fort, partly because the largest resort in Vieux Fort is all-inclusive. Hopefully, this will change. Castles overlooks beautiful Savannes Bay which a protected nature preserve. Renting/hiring an automobile is a must to get around the South end of the island at your leisure. Sandy Beach, just east of the Airport is a wonderful swimming beach to enjoy anytime and only minutes from Castles. We used Avis with no problems. The proprietor of the property, Ms Bonnie Zephirin personally checked on us several times during our stay. We had the pleasure of meeting her lovely daughter and charming grandson in from oversees and they too were just as pleasant as she. Again, the property is very close to the airport but peaceful and quiet! If you are not too interested in the hustle and bustle of Castries and loud nightlife then this a great place to be your base to explore the southeast and southwest of beautiful Saint Lucia from Soufriere to Dennery.
