“A Good Base”
Reviewed March 10, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

My wife and young son of 7 months were looking for a villa in St Lucia as we didn't want to stay in a hotel and we came across a set of villas in Gros Islet. At the time of booking around Christmas 2012, there were no reviews on Trip Advisor so we went a little blind although we had read some comments from another web site. I contacted the owner via email who then responded promptly and answered all my questions. We then spoke as the smaller villa we were looking to rent wasn't available but Greg the owner offered us the larger villa for the same price. We arranged to travel in February and Greg offered to collect us from the airport for an additional fee.
On arrival Greg collected us and as promised and he had managed to get a car seat for my son. He first took us to the local supermarket so we could stock up and we arrived at the villa around an hour and a half later. Greg told us he would give us a free orientation the following morning which we accepted and was very good and gave us an idea of where everything was.
The Coboya Grand Villa is very large and very impressive. It is set out over 3 levels and has some wonderful views. The first level has a small bedroom, the kitchen and living room which has patio doors that leads out to a large dining balcony. The second floor has two large bedrooms and another balcony and the third has the final bedroom. There is Wi-Fi available if you need it and it has a sterio and TV in the living area. There is also a very large shared pool which you have to leave the front door and walk down some steps too.
The Villa is in very good condition however a massive problem for us was the lack of air conditioning in the living area on the first floor. The sun rises behind the villa but once it hits midday the sun shines directly onto the balcony and the living area becomes very hot. There are no blinds on the patio doors so there is no escape from the heat. We had great trouble keeping our little one cool and it was a little uncomfortable. We could escape to the bedrooms if we wanted to however as these all do have air con.
The Villa is located in a residential area on a hillside about a fifteen minute walk to the Marina on one side and the restaurants, bars and Reduit beach the other. All the local restaurants are exceptintional and I would highly recomend them. As the villa is in a residential area many of the surrounding villas have guard dogs. At night the dogs do tend to bark quite a lot, so bring some ear plugs!
Greg offered to give us some excursions however we decided to hire a car for two days and explore on our own. This was a good idea as we had our son with us so we could be as quick or as long as we wanted.
This villa is a great base, in a good location and we are really pleased we stayed there. Greg is a good host and nothing seemed too much for us to ask. We enjoyed our stay and had the living area had air conditioning I would have given 5 out of 5.

So happy you enjoyed the sights of our island and the spaciousness of Coyaba Grand. We appreciate your input with regards to the comfort level of the Great Room in the heat of the day and have acquired solar drapery to address this and have great success with cooler temperatures since they have been installed. It's always fun to have an infant on the property as it reminds me of days gone by. Hope the family is doing well.
Cheers,
Greg

Scott and Robin. You never felt like tourists, because you weren't. You were family. You have brought the phrase "enjoying the island" to a whole new level and I was amazed at your attentiveness to every little detail it offered. Congratulations on your engagement! We look forward to seeing you when you bring the children to St. Lucia for your upcoming wedding!
All the Best,
Greg

Had a memorable time with the two of you. Thanks so much for the picture posing on the deck of Coyaba Grand. The two of you look gorgeous with an incredible backdrop of the west coast, Caribbean Sea.
Kind Regards,
