This was by far the best vacation I have ever had. We were pampered from the time we landed in St. Lucia until we departed. The staff was absolutely amazing! Oshea and Clinton and Chef were the best. There was nothing we thought about that wasn't provided with a smile. It will be hard to have a "regular" vacation after... More

Our extended family of 6 adults and two children spent a wonderful week at C'est La Vie. We take a family trip each year and have have rented apartments and villas all over the world and rank our stay here as one of the best. Everything about the villa and the staff is perfect. We had very specific food allergies,... More

I totally enjoyed my stay. Our group occupied both the main villa and the adjoining cottage, both beautifully furnished. We had staff on call and were well taken care of particularly by the capable and quietly efficient O'Shea. I would happily stay there again but I give 4 as opposed to 5 stars for the following reasons: Two mornings in... More

Thank you for your review of "C’est la Vie". We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay but very sorry to hear about your issue with the hot water. While the entire villa utilizes solar energy for heating its water, there are occasions when the system is inadequate due to either a lack of sun or a heavy bathing load.... More

My friends and I stayed here for our 40th birthdays. This place was amazing. So beautiful and luxurious. The staff was very welcoming and were great the entire week. The food was the best on the Island. A perfect place to be away from the "tourist" hustle and bustle and a great place to relax. I would recommend this to... More

When you arrive in St Lucia you are met by your driver. Upon arrival to the Villa you are greeted with cold towels and drinks. The villa itself is beautiful with an amazing ambiance.

Cest La Vie is the epitome of relaxation. Secluded and quiet yet close enough to a private cove you immediately feel like you are alone. The service, though, is amazing and always available. First rate! We were greeted daily by friendly faces and warm breakfast and coffee on the veranda. Dinner each night was unique and seemed to get better... More

The first thing about our trip to St. Lucia that sets it apart was our accommodations and staff at C'est La Vie. Upon arrival we were greeted with chilled Champagne and welcomed to the villa. The Villa is spectacular. Very top line in everything from the linens to the wood work, to the furniture. Every detail was attended to and... More

Our wonderful experience began when we arrived at the airport. We were met with ice cold minted scented towels and a bottle of cold water. Trevor drove us to the villa, and he was very informative, kind, and friendly. We enjoyed talking to him so much that we had him drive us to wherever we went. We were greeted by... More

My family stayed here back in October 2014. There were 11 of us in total and my husband and I had booked it for our Wedding. The families had never really met so we rented the whole villa so we could all be together and they could get to know one another. The villa itself was absolutely stunning, I had... More

This was quite an experience! The property is very well maintained and the staff caters to your every need. They're top notch! If you want to get away from the hotel/ resort environment, this is a perfect choice.
