“Near but far”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

We were two couples each staying in the separate "villas" at the Villa Caribbean. The above ground villa was a little larger with a small kitchen and small porch. The other "villa" was smaller but had a wrap around porch. The larger villa's kitchen had a small stove but we were unable to get it to light. Brigitte was an accommodating hostess,the rooms were well maintained and the breakfasts were presented with quantities of fresh fruit, cheese, bread,vegetables and eggs on the porch. Dinners were available with notice and the ones we had were very good and a good value for the quantity and quality. There was a large refrigerator in the room to keep whatever food or water you had cold. The negative was her dogs. Very active and not well behaved,especially the younger dog. Both dogs barked quite a bit which became annoying. Also would have liked easier access to the main house. The walk to Vieux Fort is downhill going to town which means an uphill walk return. Brigitte recommended a driver who was excellent. We also used the bus system which has its benefits and difficulties,but we would recommend renting a car if you want to experience the rest of the island easier. The view from the main house is beautiful.

Room Tip: Did not view the inside rooms, either separate villa is a good value.

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Villa Caribbean Dream for three nights. The rooms are nice, comfortable and clean, but what really made the place special was the hospitality of its owner, Brigitte. We stayed there around Christmas and she invited us to go with her to a Christmas Eve dinner at the Balenbouche Estate, a historic plantation where her friends live. The dinner was one of the highlights of our trip to St. Lucia. We had a delicious meal and met many interesting people, including the owners of Balenbouche who were also very hospitable.

Brigitte made great breakfasts for us and helped organize visits around the island. We would definitely return to the Villa Caribbean Dream.

Brigitte is a wonderful host who was amazingly helpful, kind and interesting. She fixed us wonderful meals for a reasonable price and gave us lots of pointers. Would definitely go there again if I came back to Saint Lucia.

Doug368's review nicely encapsulates our experience too. The villa is in a quiet and reasonably remote setting, but if you're fit and don't mind a 15 minute stroll to Vieux Fort it's a perfect location. Brigitte readily offered us lifts when she was going to the beach/on errands, so we never felt cut off despite not having a hire car.

Beautiful house and well-equipped kitchen. Mai house (cheaper) rooms compact but nicely laid out. Chalet and garden rooms also available. Dogs were no problem at all - not smelly or intrusive so fear not on that count. Brigitte is very friendly and welcoming; yes, she's hoping to sell on the business and is open about her struggles to maintain the high standards at the villa. We found it refreshing to stay with an accessible and helpful hostess and would recommend a stay here 'away from the madding crowd'.

If you're an independent traveller who would rather keep away from the busy tourist areas and inclusive resorts this is an ideal place to stay and Doug368's review is 'spot on'.

Brigitte made us feel very welcome to her home and was helpful in organising things such as car hire and visits to the lovely Balenbouche estate as well as suggesting places to visit or eat. Unless you intend spending everyday on the beach a hire car is highly recommended; nowhere on the island is more than an interesting 1.5 hrs drive away.

Room Tip: Can highly recommend the Creole House.

Villa Caribbean Dream is owned and managed by Brigitte, a long-time German expat, who (contrary to another review) speaks perfect English. She has a couple of fairly large but very friendly dogs for security. I personally did not notice any smell from them and if they barked it did not wake me, though I tend to be a light sleeper. It’s easy being lulled to sleep by the sound of tree frogs, an exquisite experience you may miss in many of the all-inclusives.

The guest house is located about half way up the Moule a Chique, the long extinct volcano that forms the southernmost cape of St. Lucia. A short hike up to the lighthouse will give you stunning views of both the Atlantic and the Caribbean at the same time. From Brigitte’s porch you will have a great view of the Pitons, the most noted landmarks in St. Lucia.

It is rather hard to find for a first time visitor, but Brigitte will arrange to meet you at the beach by the airport and guide or take you there personally. The guest house is in a quiet neighbourhood of Vieux Fort, well away from the town and beach, but if you make the choice you will be rewarded with a real gem of a guest house, clean, bright, airy and equipped with effective mosquito netting on the beds. There is a full kitchen in the common area and mostly reliable Wi-Fi.

I stayed there three days before Christmas and had no qualms in returning for another two days in January. Brigitte is in fact looking to sell her guest house so she can retire in comfort but she does not impose, is always friendly and will make you feel at home, even when conditions get a little challenging.

I visited Villa Caribbean Dream in Vieux Fort a few years ago, after finding the guesthouse randomly on the internet. That visit was 4 very relaxing days lazing on the veranda watching the birds, visiting the local bar by the beach, The Reef and enjoying time with Villa CD'd owner, Brigitte.
I couldn't wait to go back with my bf and did so just a week ago during a 2 week Caribbean trip....so I did even more lazy days, filling up each morning with Brigitte's unique breakfast and meeting up with familiar faces too.
I cannot wait to return to de-stress and breathe in the calm surroundings, comfortable rooms and wonderful host!

Room Tip: All rooms are fan only which I prefer, don't expect A/C. The self catering apartments are beauti...
