Speckled securely atop the northern hillside overlooking picturesque Marigot Bay, the Oasis Marigot Vacation Club Villas (VCV) provide the quintessential respite from the hustle and bustle of daily life, as well as the ideal location for access to many of St. Lucia's treasures. Nestled within a lush explosion of greens, pinks, oranges, and yellows, and surrounded by the soft serenades of tropical birds, VCV were peeled straight from a postcard. Accessible first by ferry, then by an excruciatingly lethargic hillside trolley, VCV allow you to get away from it all without actually being too far away from it all. The amenities in our villa were basic, but sufficient: a hot shower, clean sheets, a wide variety of kitchen necessities, indoor seating, a pullout couch for extra sleep space, and a balcony that comfortably seated four. The staff was helpful, but not bothersome, offering multiple excursions and laundry services. As it was the low season, it seemed that the staff worked limited hours, which actually helped establish the idyllic, secluded feel that many travelers crave on island vacations.
One drawback to the location is the lack of restaurant options. With only two restaurants on the same side of the bay, the relaxed traveler may be roped in to paying higher prices instead of committing to exploring possibilities a little farther from VCV. The food and beverages at both establishments are lovely, though, so all is not lost.
Another potential drawback to the location is the existence of locals in the bay attempting to sell wares and excursions. The seasoned, surly traveler will have no problem sending these gentlemen on their way, but those who are too polite may have some difficulties sending them packing. We actually met a really nice local gentleman who gave us some great deals and showed us an amazing time. For the most part, it seems like the men are honest and hardworking, and looking to capitalize on St. Lucia's burgeoning tourist industry.
All in all, VCV is an amazing place to call home for a few days!
