We had such a great time that I fear I'll gush on too long if I'm not careful here. Suffice it to say, my wife and I had an absolutely wonderful stay at Villa Pomme D'Amour! The property is wonderful, in a great location, and Pierre is a wonderful host - sadly we didn't get to meet Josee, who was out of the country. We traveled all around Saint Lucia and we found Marigot Bay to be a lovely and convenient home base - and very close to several good restaurants, including Chateau Mygo (more low-key but very good), and Rainforest Hideaway (fancier and definitely excellent). The villas are in a great private location, are sufficiently spacious and comfortable, and the kitchens are well-equipped. The cove that others have mentioned is just a short walk away, is very private, and is great for snorkeling. You can easily walk to town in <10 minutes or drive, and there is a grocery which you can use to supply your kitchen for home dining. Pierre was always at the ready for any of our needs - restaurant advice, local tips, really anything, including a trip from the airport complete with lots of information about the area.
Tips - Buy some bug spray as you need it anytime you're hanging out on the porch. We keep things wide open at night for good airflow and kept the mosquitos away with the several fans provided - we didn't use the mosquito net. If you are a light sleeper consider a white noise sound machine or app for your phone. The frogs, birds, and other wildlife are noisy at night :) Do rent a car! We got one of Andrew's 4x4s that Pierre can arrange for you. There's so much to see that we feel you've got to have your own car.
We would definitely come back and can wholeheartedly recommend Villa Pomme D'Amour to anyone who like us, has little interest in resorts! You will love it!
