We stayed in Castles by the Sea with all the amenities and conveniences required to relax and enjoy. Our 3 bedroom villa was clean, well appointed, very spacious and had a picture postcard view of the ocean over Savannes Bay. The villa had many amenities and was well stocked with supplies I hadn't thought to ask about (spices, coffee, tea, blender, grill, french press coffee maker, soap, dish soap, laundry soap). The pool was a walk across the garden and drive and we had it all to ourselves for our July 14th week in St. Lucia. The property manager Bonnie, informally checked in on us and had lots of suggestions about where to eat, where to travel and how to enjoy all that St. Lucia has to offer. We were less than 15 mins from Hewanorra airport and not in the flight zone at all. We travelled to Castries on the east coast highway for Carnival and our kids enjoyed the zip line and ATV (beware the natural Tarantulas) adventures locally. Food was well priced and of a good variety in the local grocery store. We were able to buy local fish from the fishing boats under 10 minutes away and enjoyed A spice-rubbed Fresh red snapper on the BBQ one evening. We ventured into Belle Vue to celebrate the home and the 80th birthday of our children's former Nanny. We enjoyed home made foods of the island in addition to dancing and celebrating the night away. Our sons were able to enjoy a day at the river with our former Nanny's family, cooking pig snouts and tails in a cast iron pot over freshly cut bamboo trees for the fire. We rented a catamaran out of Soufriere (breakneck highway) for an afternoon of sun and snorkeling. Despite checking in early at the airport, we almost missed our plane! Check out the Reef restaurant (with WiFi)for a quick wholesome lunch or dinner while enjoying the white sand beach 15 minutes away.
