We choose Poinsettia Apartments based on positive reviews in TA, location and affordability.
Since this was our first time in St.Lucia we wanted to stay somewhat in the middle between Rodney Bay and Soufriere /Pitons area. Castries was our choice for a base town and Poinsettia Apartments were our base camp!
Secluded in the exclusive hill , above Point Seraphine on the Vigie side of Castries , this small apartment complex with a beautiful garden and a swimming pool have the best view of the bay! We were greeted by Farida, one of the owners, who was extremely kind, helpful and gave us many ideas on where to shop and what to see around. Philip and Monique, the caretakers of the property went out of their ways to help us with all the requests we had.
We stayed at apartment #5 with two bedrooms. The rooms were comfortable, spacious, and spotless. One of the two terraces was overlooking the bay and the other was looking at the pool. We even had a complimentary welcome basket with coffee and breakfast items waiting on the counter-top and on the last day of our stay we had a bag of Caribbean fruits left on our door handle!
One of our favorite late afternoon activities was lounging by the pool, feeling the cool breeze, watching the cruise ships sailing off the harbor and sharing stories with the new friends we’ve made in Poinsettia.
Since there are only seven apartments, we felt as if we had the place to ourselves. It was that quiet and serene. We have rented a car and explored the island daily, but when in Castries you would walk from Poinsettia to the market and historical sites . It was a safe and pleasant walk. The town has an authentic Caribbean feel that you won’t find at Rodney bay or Cap Estate.
I highly recommend Poinsettia for your choice in Castries, the apartments are real gem!
