My wife and I rented the Frangipani #2 villa and found it very spacious, comfortable and furnished with all you may wish: Fully equipped kitchen, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge, crockery and cutlery, TV, internet, a barbecue ... you name it.
In particular we liked the spacious patio with the nice splash pool, overlooking a quiet tropical garden.
The villa is located in a gated community and appears very safe and quiet. It's a five minute drive to Rodney Bay with its shops and restaurants, and a 20min. drive to Castries, the busy capital. Other sights and attractions are less than 30min. drive (e.g. Cas-en-Bas beach resort, Smugglers Cove, Rainforest Adventures, Pigeon Island, Marigot Bay).
The staff at Gateway Villas were very friendly and attentive, both before and during our rental. Check-in was easy and straight forward, and during our stay the maids were taking excellent care of us.
Definitely a recommendation for those who prefer an individual place to stay to a busy "all inclusive" hotel.
