We stayed at the Emerald Hill Villa May 21st to May 28th. This place did not disappoint!!! We flew into the airport and were greeted by Albert once we passed customs. He drove us the hour and 15 minutes up to the villa and when we walked in we felt like we were home! We had the groceries delivered to our villa and they as well as Christina the house keeper and Uriel the manager were waiting when we arrived.
Alice has put a lot of thought and effort into making this a homey, relaxing, and just plain spectacular place to be.
If you like wildlife, this is the place to stay. We did go on three tours while in St. Lucia but just from your very own wade pool or deck you can see many species of bird, mongoose, and gecko/lizards as well as pretty large sized hermit crabs on occasion at night and butterflies.
There are 110 volt outlets in the kitchen and 220 volts elsewhere so convertor is not needed. The cell phone they provided was perfect and came in very handy. The Mari Gourmet grocery is at the bottom of the will and the hill is steep and not as well groomed of a road as you would like but if in decent shape is quite doable. There is the option of having a taxi take you back up the hill for $10 us.
The utensils, pots, and pans are sufficient but be mindful that you need to keep thinks safe and away from the "land sharks" always swimming around you...the birds!!! They will snatch your bread right off the counter so Glad bags or the like may be a good thing to bring or buy. The do have some Tupperware available but a few extra storage options may help you.
Aqua shoes may be safer to walk on when you are dripping wet out of the pool as the tiles can get a bit slippery. I, as others recommend reading "The Man Who Loved Schooners" before you go, the man it is written about built the house.
Enjoy and soak in the beautiful view, you will not be disappointed!!!
