“Zephyr”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2012

Zephyr is a beautiful house in a beautiful location. The views are stunning, and the breezes are great.
The road to get there is in need of repair, though; and don't trust Google Maps to get you there. There are several ways to get there, but 2 out of the 3 roads are so rutted we had to turn our rental van around so as to not get stuck. Get good directions if you're driving yourself. If you come the "right" way it's OK.
Plenty of room for two families, 7 folks total. Saw a few mosquitoes, but they were not a problem (at least in January).

We spent several days in St. Lucia and our trip was made even better because we stayed at Gateway Villas. From the moment we arrived and were immediately greeted by Cheli, we knew we were in the right place. She was so helpful showing us the ins and outs of the villa, offering her assistance any time day or night. We also met Larissa as well and she was the one I dealt with on the internet and she too was so sweet and so very helpful. Our whole experience was wonderful and we would most highly recommend this place. We will definitely return to Gateway Villas!!!

Room Tip: I booked this villa online and it was so simple.

I've read the reviews about the breakings, maybe management changed employees or upgrade their customer service. But it was the place to stay for myself and the mrs. The room was excellent, not to mention the view!!! But most important... thumbs up to the customer service. We were well taken care of and they saw to all our needs, from car rental to tours. Made us felt as if we were their top priority. Don't worry... it isn't going to be our last visit to the island and we know where we're stayin.

Room Tip: Go in off peak season, if your a number crusher.

The house provided a spacious bedroom and bathroom for each family. The house was cleaned daily and the 2 and a half year old enjoyed the swimming pool after his nap. The island gives you allot to discover The public beach provided excellent snorkling and the Windjammer had a beautifull beach and offered a good lunch. These beaches were at 5 and 10 minutes easy walk ing distance from the villa. We had a great week.

We recently rented a villa through Gateway Vacations in St. Lucia. The villa was spectacular as is everything else in this country. We were also very impressed with the personnel from Gateway. They were warm and friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. Housekeeping was done every second day. We will definitely return to St. Lucia and book with Gateway Villas.

A group of 3 families, 7 people rented this 3 bedroom villa for a week. It was a really good value for money given the period we went and the fact that all other sensibly priced options were not available. The villa was situated on top of a hill which you accessed through a really bumpy road, high clearance vehicle recommended. It had stunning views of Rodney Bay with the small hills surrounding it. It was really close to Pigeon Beach and Gros Islet which is ideal when you want to get to a beach or a store quickly.
Cleaning was done twice in the week we stayed with plenty of towels available even for beach use. We didn't use the plunge pool since we had the beach and nice Carribean waters close by.
The villa could use some refreshing, especially with the blinds, but I can't complain about that.
All in all it was an enjoyable stay made all the more memorable by the friendly staff and people of the island.

To Whom it May Concern,

My partner and I spent close to three months (October 25, 2010--January10, 2011) at Zephyr Hill Estate managed by Gateway Villas. It was a dream come true! The management, estate, and staff were all excellent!

Zephyr Hill is fabulous! It overlooks both the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea, and is close to the beautiful beaches and excellent resturants of St. Lucia.

I would highly Zephyr Hill and the professional service that we experience during our stay.

Hi to Tessa, Melanie, and Cheli (management and staff at Gateway Villas)! We miss you and the beautiful island of St. Lucia!

Sincerely,

Rodd and Tom
