“Best Villa Ever!!!!!”
Reviewed March 10, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We had a group of 5 Adults & 1 Child for a 2 week stay at the Bay View Villa in Marigot Bay, St. Lucia. This was our first trip to St. Lucia and we were not disappointed.
First of all, Chris Beechings, the owner of the villa goes above and beyond from the start of the rental process. He gives you a very clear understanding of Bay View and what to expect in the area. He was very informative from Start to Finish, he has wonderful information about the Island, Tours and what to do and where to go as well as a complete inventory of the house. His management staff is top notch, we meet Pauline upon our arrival and she did a very excessive walk through to ensure any or all questions were answered. Pauline was excellent to work with, she suggested a great place for our first nights dinner in Marigot Bay as well as setting up transportation to Castries for a market run for fresh provisions the next morning.
The villa itself is spacious, clean, very functional for a group of any size. There are 3 King Bedroom, and 2 Queen bedrooms all very similar layouts, Great in suite tile bathroom/showers and more than enough room, comfortable beds. Each room has a balcony to sit and enjoy the wonderful views of the Bay. The layout of the house is perfect and plenty of space to find a place to be alone if you like. There is also a downstairs game room with a ping pong table for those rainy days, or when you do not feel like being out side.
The Views are incredible on both sides of the Villa, Sunsets every night on the Front upper Balcony and all day views of the bay from the back side of the house. When we were there in February of 2017 some days he winds were so strong but with all the space at the Villa we were still able to enjoy the patio and not get blown away. We did not turn on the AC, cause you really do not need it with the wonderful breezes at the Villa.
The Kitchen has a wonderful gas stove/oven, large refrigerator, everything you need to make wonderful meals at your fingers. We had a problem with the Ice maker / Refrigerator freezing up. We called Pauline and she had a tech over within 24 hours...this was nice since we just spent $400.00 on groceries and did not lose anything due to the freezing of the unit.
The great room has plenty of seating, cooling fans, a TV with DVD. The WiFi is fast and works in all the rooms. The swimming pool right outside of the kitchen is a great place to cool off on those hot days and in between beach dips. Another great perk of the house is having the laundry room with two washing machines and plenty of towels and linens. Bring your own soap and toiletries.
We were able to book a tour to the Pitons with Cornelius and he was so informative about the area, history and set us up at a great restaurant for lunch, I would highly recommend using the staff to assist you in Tours...you will not be disappointed. We also used the driver Moses for a couple day trips and again very informative and accommodating...you will be very well taken care of.
I highly recommend that you book Bay View Villa in Marigot Bay. You will be taken care of from Start to finish and nothing is left to the unknown.
This is a top notch Villa and worth the price....do not hesitate to book this Villa you will not be disappointed.
Thank you Chris & Staff you guys helped us have a wonderful vacation to St. Lucia.

“Immaculate, well-designed and organized home above Marigot Bay on St. Lucia.”
Reviewed January 29, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

person found this review helpful

The villa was immaculate and well laid out. Not only did we have a gorgeous view of the Marigot Bay and the Caribbean on one side but from the front entrance and upper balcony, a view of a cove and the Caribbean.
The Beeching's staff was friendly and professional. Pauline greeted us on our arrival from the airport. The maid and gardener/pool man came mid week.
The grounds were lovely.
We drove less than 5 minutes to a parking lot by the Bay where there were a number of restaurants and a few shops. On the other side of the bay easily reached by a short boat/ferry ride, there were several other restaurants, a few hikes and accommodations.
We drove to a number of areas on the island to see interesting sites including the Pitons, a botanical rain forest with mineral baths and an old fort on Pigeon Island with a nice sandy beach and good snorkeling.
Very good restaurant on Marigot Bay- Rainforest Hideaway.
Good value.
Very communicative owners.

“FABULOUS VILLA with STELLAR Views”
Reviewed December 18, 2016 for a stay in November 2016
1
person found this review helpful

Our family of four spent eight idyllic days at the Bay View Villa in Marigot Bay, St. Lucia and we have only positive comments about the experience. First of all, Chris Beechings, the owner of the villa goes above and beyond what’s expected to make sure that each guest feels comfortable, safe, and informed. From the first moment of booking, every question was answered, tips were provided, and a couple of weeks before departing on our adventure, he emailed a complete packet of suggestions for things to do, places to go, and what to see.

The villa itself is spacious, clean, and welcoming with 4 master suites, three of which are king beds, one is a queen (all with private travertine bathrooms, walk in showers with rain shower heads) plus an additional double bedroom and three more bathrooms, one with a bathtub. Stone floors, teak wood staircase, fine linens, excellent lighting-the house is built to insure a comfortable, luxurious vacation. Four couples could easily enjoy a vacation here and not feel crowded. There is also a downstairs game room with a ping pong table for those monsoon rainy days when wandering outside is not advantageous.

Verandas and balconies offer both sunrise and sunset views of Marigot Bay or the Caribbean. The great room has plenty of seating, cooling fans, a TV with DVD(which we never used once), and a high end kitchen with first class cooking utensils. WiFi is fast and works in all the rooms. The swimming pool right outside of the kitchen is a great place to cool off on those hot days and in between beach dips. Another great perk of the house is having the laundry room with two washing machines and plenty of towels and linens. Bring your own soap and toiletries.

The caretakers, Cornelius and Pauline, are extremely helpful. When we got lost driving from the airport, Pauline was able to direct us to the villa. There are very few road signs and no street addresses in St. Lucia, so it can be a bit challenging to find something without stopping to ask. You’ll be told to watch for bus stops, store emblems, big trees, etc. when directions are sought.

Marigot Bay is without a doubt the prettiest bay in the Caribbean as James Michener evidently remarked. Dr. Doolittle with Rex Harrison was shot here and Dootlittles restaurant, a ferry ride across the Bay, takes its namesake from it. There are several good restaurants in Marigot Bay including Rainforest Hideaway (expensive, classy), Pirates, Chateau Mygo, and Doolittles that we frequented. We bought fresh baked croissants from the Bayside Café in the Bay. There is a small, yet very good grocery store here as well with everything you need. We adored getting firm massages at Le Spa Marigot (about $65 US for an hour) located right next to the police station.

We hired Cornelius and his water taxi to take us to Soufriere, the Pitons, and snorkeling in Anse Chastenet, which we highly recommend. Going by boat is the way to travel in St. Lucia. Not only are the views spectacular and the water warm, but being in a watercraft is better than getting car sick on the switch back roads through the rain forest. We did the drive to Soufriere as well and although brilliantly beautiful, the road is very curvy and winding.

Close by Marigot Bay is the Roseau Rum Distillery in the middle of a banana plantation. The tour is short and informative and the rum tasting is generous. St. Lucia is known to make the best rum in the world and the good stuff can be purchased at the Distillery for much less than in any shop. While in St. Lucia, drink rum.

Even though it was raining cats and dogs, we really enjoyed walking through the Botanical Gardens and visiting Diamond Waterfalls. The volunteer guide was extremely informative. The sulphur springs were warm, not bubbling and not hot, but nice after a hike. The “drive-through” volcano is not actually a drive through. You park your car and hike on a trail with a guide to an overlook of the bubbling pots. Sitting in the warm sulphur springs creek and covering yourself with volcanic mud is not as invigorating as advertised, especially when you have to rinse off in a cold outdoor shower!

Although we hiked and visited sites, our favorite place was definitely Marigot Bay. The little sandy beach with the swaying palm trees on the peninsula is a vision of paradise. We rented kayaks and stand up paddleboards to view the sunset around the cliffs. We snorkeled in the clear waters.

It was always a blessing to come back to the comfort of the Bay Villa where we had spectacular views, cool breezes, safety, and plenty of room. The only caveat of the villa is the very steep driveway which with 4 people in a rental car ended up tearing up a fender. (No worries, just make sure you have insurance coverage).

We had such a wonderful time in St. Lucia that it is a pity that the flight from California is so arduous or we’d be returning soon. When you are considering a week or more in St. Lucia, I highly recommend that you book Bay View Villa in Marigot Bay. You and your party will be delighted. Chris will make sure that you have every instruction possible (I think he sent us more than 75 pages of information- a full guide book of personal experiences), while Cornelius and Pauline will make sure that everything you need is taken care of.

If I could give Bay View Villa ten stars, I would. Thank you Chris, Corenlius, and Pauline for making our vacation so relaxed, stress-free, and memorable.

“very relaxed stay in a great villa”
Reviewed October 23, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We had a great and very relaxing week. The island is beautiful even if there is some poverty which we didn't expect on such an island. The location of the villa is just perfect and views are stunning. It is also close to the domestic airport in Castries and not far away from some supermarkets.

“A luxurious villa, which was perfect for our second honeymoon!”
Reviewed August 19, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We had a fabulous holiday in St Lucia in May 2016 and this was mainly due to Bay View Villa, its unrivalled position, its amenities, its cooling breeze and its wonderful peace and tranquillity. It is a lovely property, in an awesome position. We cannot recommend it more highly.

We were met by the property managers, Pauline and Cornelius, who showed us around and ensured that everything ran smoothly throughout our stay. Marigot Bay is a delightful picturesque bay, popular with visiting yachts, and has its own picture-perfect little beach complete with palm trees, bars and restaurants. However, we enjoyed simply looking down on it from our spectacular position high above the sea, chilling peacefully beside our own large pool, glass in hand!

We used our hire car to do some exploring around the island, but most frequently went north to Castries and Rodney Bay, enjoying the many excellent restaurants (for which Cornelius was a great source of recommendations).

There are many, many boat trips available, but we enjoyed the luxury of a personal hire with Cornelius, an experienced skipper, in his own boat. He took us on 2 trips, the first (a half day) when we went snorkelling (our first time!) for which he provided all the equipment and tuition, which was brilliant. The second trip was a full day including snorkelling, lunch in Soufriere, more snorkelling and a private guided tour of all the bays and beaches, stopping wherever we wanted along the way. Perfection - and all at a very reasonable price.
So, all in all, a great success - - but the star of the show was Bay View Villa - and we loved it so much that we are already booked in to return next year - for our third honeymoon!

“Amazing Views and Wonderful Vacation Home”
Reviewed July 26, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We had a group of 8 people that stayed at the Bay View Villas in July 2016. Every one of us was thrilled with the villa. With all the room in the house to relax, eat or just enjoy the scenery outside there was never an issue with the size of our group. The wonderful dips in the pool as it was 85 and humid every day and all the boats coming and going was always very interesting to watch.
Chris and Liz do a great job with keeping in contact with you before your trip and all the tips and information they send prior to the trip is very helpful. We did not rent a car and used a taxi for 8 of us the whole week while we were there. The taxi driver was set up by Pauline the caretaker for the villa before we left so there were no issues with us having a driver to the villa when we arrived at the airport in St Lucia. The driver also stopped at the local grocery store before we got to the villa which was very helpful for our group.
When we arrived Pauline was there to greet us along with showing us around the house.
We enjoyed many excursions while we were there. We enjoyed a tour with CoSol Tours which is mainly a Cruise line tour around St. Lucia but we were able to book it as well. The tour stopped at a banana plantation, the owner of the tour’s house for a breakfast, sulfur hot springs, waterfall swimming, continued on to Soufriere, saw the Pitons, rode on a glass bottom boat to Sugar Beach where we stayed for a while to swim and relax. We also went on the gondola rainforest ride, zip-lining through the rainforest and did some hiking. Cornelius set up a Catamaran tour to Rodney Bay and lastly we went to Castries to the open market for shopping. We enjoyed meals at Doolittle’s, Chateau Mygo and Rainforest Hideaway. They were all very good.
If you are looking for adventure, relaxation, swimming and amazing views, this is the place for you!!
