Villa Pomme d'Amour
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 21, 2010

My husband and I have just returned from 8 days on the wonderful island paradise of St Lucia. We stayed at villa Pomme D'Amour as recommended on Tripadvisor by several people and we were not disappointed. Josee and Pierrre could not do enough to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. They were perfect hosts. They organised a hire car, recommended places to visit and restaurants to eat in. All their suggestions were excellent ones. They even took us into Castries to experience the local market and to take advantage of shopping at a larger supermarket. Marigot Bay is a beautiful resort with lots of activities. There was so much choice that we could not fit everything in to this vacation so we will just have to return next year to do all the things we could not do this time!

This past Christmas my husband presented me with 2 tickets to St. Lucia for a week at the end of January. It was my pleasure to figure out where we were going to be staying. We're not your package deal vacationers, don't really enjoy all inclusives for too long and so I started to look for a private villa and came across Villa Pomme D'Amour through VRBO. The pictures on line look amazing, but honestly, in person, it is breath-taking!

Josee and Pierre are the most gracious hosts; Pierre picked our bedraggled, winter shocked selves up from the airport and we had a delightful drive back to Marigot Bay, with a quick pit stop off in Dunneries for a Piton beer. Upon our arrival Josee showed us into our villa, which she had unexpectedly and very generously provisioned with enough breakfast groceries to keep us going nearly all week,and a wonderful basket of fresh local fruit. To top off our arrival Josee brought us up some wonderful bruschetta and the most delicious rum punch. Fantastic!

The villa is so gorgeous, very well equipped with everything and more that we needed. The view from the enormous balcony is stunning during the day and almost over-whelming during sunset. The private beach just a 2 minute walk through the woods had some of the best snorkling we found on the Island.

Most evenings we would walk down into the village of Marigot Bay for dinner where the food and restaurants were excellent. It's such a beautiful place and sitting in the open air next to the water enjoying a wonderful meal was a delight.

A week wasn't quite enough for us to explore all we wanted to, but Josee pointed us in the right direction so that we wouldn't waste the time that we did have. We usually spent the first part of the day on an adventure and then relaxed on a beach in the afternoon making sure we got back to the villa in time for the breath-taking sunsets.

I can't rave enough about how happy we are to have found Villa Pomme D'Amour. We love the Caribbean, St. Lucia is a fantastic country, the locals such gentle and friendly people, Marigot Bay a totally stunning town and then Villa Pomme D'Amour with owners and hosts Josee and Pierre made us feel we had found a rare jewel of a spot, the kind that you don't really wantt to tell too many people about, but one which would be a travesty really, not to share.

Oh, and rent a car. Josee arranges everything, even having the car delivered to the villa. How great is that!

My husband and I just returned home from a 12 day trip to St. Lucia and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay! Josee and Pierre are absolutely wonderful; you couldn't ask for better hosts! The villas are stunning, the location is great, the pool is perfect, and the little extras that Josee and Pierre do are uncommon in today's world and make all the difference. They seem to have found the perfect balance between being there when you need help and giving you your privacy. St. Lucia is a beautiful tropical island with friendly locals and lots of attractions/beaches to explore and Villa Pomme D'Amour was the perfect home base! Thanks Josee and Pierre for making our honeymoon so special =)

Booked last August for a stay in January (10-21) wondering if it was as good as the reviews say. This place is great because with only 3 rental suites, you get the place to yourselves a lot. The pool water is around 80F (warm!) and it's great for an evening swim to cool down.
Pierre and Josee are around and ready to offer help, but they don't hover. You can tell they really enjoy their life there. We felt as if we were family. The rooms have ceiling fans in the bedroom, the kitchen and the living area. There is also a standing fan that you can use to help keep the air moving at night. That was my only drawback. I am used to sleeping in a 65F room and it took a while to get used to the heat. The plug-ins are 220V with plug adapters in each. All that is needed is the voltage regulator. The kitchen has a kettle, blender, coffee maker, toaster, all dishes and utensils, also a mesh screen cover to keep the birds off the fruit.or whatever you put under it. Cable tv has english, spanish and french language stations as well as local. There is even the visitor channel which helped us as well.
We loved the little cove for snorkeling and the location of the villa itself. We appreciated the peace and quiet and seclusion, yet knew that we had everything we needed within such a short distance. We walked to the marina area many of the days since it was only about a 5-10 minute walk. We rented a car for 3 days and went all over the island. Forgot the map the second day and did just fine. We felt that we got a really good taste of the island. Met and talked to a lot of the local folks and saw a lot of the sights, even off the beaten path.(if there is one )
As others have said, Josee is a wealth of information. She will arrange and book things and recommend what to do and what is over-rated. We really appreciated them getting us started by taking us to Castries for supplies. It helped us get our bearings and made it much easier for getting around when we had the car.
We love exploring and discovering new places but we would truly love to return to Villa Pomme D'Amour.

Josee and Pierre were fantastic hosts and did everything they could to make our stay on the island a great one. They helped us plan excursions, arrange a rental car, and recommended wonderful restaurants in town. The villa is in a lovely location a short drive up from Marigot Bay. We very much enjoyed our stay and highly recommend the Villa Pomme D'Amour!

Josee and Pierre are the best hosts we've encountered anywhere. Pierre took us to town for supper the first night and picked us up afterwards. The fridge was stocked enough for breakfast and lunch the next day. The weather was beautiful everyday (very hot) and the pool was perfect for cooling off. We took the air matresses out into the water and around to the beach to the south.....BEAUTIFUL! Renting Andrew's car was perfect, as he dropped it off and picked it up. We are walkers, but couldn't imagine walking back from town every day in the heat so we were happy tohave the car. Josee helped us plan out outings, and made phone calls and reservations for us. We really enjoyed the Baguette Shop in Marigot bay and the Dolphin/Whale watching outing. Our daughter missed the dogs when we left.
Thanks again Josee & Pierre!

We just got back from a weeklong stay at Villa Pomme D'Amour and I have to say - don't hesitate. Just go! Josee and Pierre were amazing hosts, as others have already said. Pierre came to pick us up from the airport -- we were a group coming on separate flights and he waited at the airport for a couple of hours so he could get us all at once. And he even had snacks in the car for us ready to go - fresh tangerines and grapefruits. Once we arrived at the villa, Josee was there to greet us with a pitcher of her tasty rum punch and freshly made bruschetta - just what we needed. The villa is tastefully decorated with nice, clean kitchen, bedrooms, and bath, an outdoor grill we were welcome to use (and did when we picked up some freshly caught tuna at the market in Castries!), gorgeous views of Marigot Bay and a nicely sized pool we used for daily swims. The night of our arrival, we didn't have a car so Pierre drove us into the marina for dinner and picked us up when we were done (loaning us his cellphone so we could call him when we were ready). The fridge came fully stocked with food for breakfast - bacon, eggs, toast, OJ, homemade jam - as well a few beers. Each day, Josee sat with us to look at the map and to recommend day trips around the island. We saw Soufriere once by car and once by boat - definitely take the water taxi if you can - really great trip! I would highly recommend renting a car. The location of the villa is gorgeous and away from the large resorts, which we loved. But not very close to the beach (i.e., not walking distance). Overall a great stay - we would definitely go back!!
