My husband and I went to St. Lucia to celebrate our honeymoon in Dec 2010. We spent the first half of our vacation at another hotel in the heart of the busy Gros Islet area but wanted to spend the second half in seclusion. I accidentally found this apartment online while looking for a place with a kitchen because my husband wanted to prepare meals for me. I could not pass on the special deal we were offered and book the apartment. Tip: It is better to book on their website.
The only problem we had was trying to find the apartment. The taxi had difficulty locating it. We had to stop multiple times to ask the locals for directions. I had an idea of the vicinity of its location because I used google maps. It sits on one of the hills in Gros Islet not far from the action at the bottom of the hill. Maybe some people would venture to walk but we did not. We were very happy to find out that public mini-buses stop right outside the gate to take you down the hill to the main road where you can connect to other mini-buses to Gros Islet (2 mins drive from the connection point). There you can find supermarkets, pharmacies, casino, shopping mall, multiple nightclubs and restaurants (fine dining, casual dining and fast foods) or you can take a longer drive into Castries to the local market.
If the website’s photos are appealing to you then you will be very happy spending your vacation there. It is exactly as the photos….clean with modern décor. It has all the amenities of the comfort of your home including washing machine, microwave, full size fridge and stove, dishes, comfortable bed, big screen TV and pool. The property is gated and has area for the little ones to run around. The Manager Vince is very friendly and helpful. There are rental vehicles available if you need one.
When a place is all round wonderful sometimes it is hard to convey that in a few paragraphs for others to understand. Even though each person is looking for something different in their accommodations, I think this apartment has enough of everything to make each one comfortable. Even though it is the tropics and the apartment is located in the hills, there were no flies, or mosquitoes to bother us. That made us very happy!
