What a view !!!!
Wow .... I must say, this has an amazing view of the ocean and the Pitons !
We, 2 couples, rented the upper portion with the kitchen, and the bedroom on the lower level that did not have a kitchen. Both had bathrooms, which is something we look for in a villa. The kitchen is very well equipped for cooking, and has lots of dinnerware. The villa was clean, Berthia came in once while we stayed there for 3 nights. We also had her cook us a meal....ha ha..you would think she was cooking for twice as many people ! It was an excellent meal, I would recommend getting her to make you dinner some evening. We had her make it when she came to clean after the other renters downstairs left, then we warmed it up once we got back home.
The villa could use a little tender loving care, but remember, you are not paying $300/night. I think this villa was very good value for your money. Loved the large deck with the dining table, and the deck beside the pool...you can watch the divers below. There are lots of towels, so no need to bring a beach towel, which is nice.
The road to get there is typical St. Lucian....lots of twists and turns, has holes and rocks...no signs. Chris had given me directions to get there, but a little more detail would have been better....we stopped and asked several people that were walking on the roads, or I am not sure we would have found it. I highly recommend an SUV when driving any roads off of the highway, as they are not the best.
From there, we drove to Anse Chastenet and Anse Mamin to snorkel and swim....very nice beach, some shade. We also did the Tet Paul Trail, the Diamond Botanical garden and Waterfall, the Sulphur Pools and Mudbath, a stop at Malgretoute Beach. We went into Soufriere to eat dinner one day and explore the town. Once you make a trip or two over the road, you get to know your way, and where the holes are in the road :)
The villa is very peaceful...there are neighbours, but you don't see them at all because of the dense growth. The pool is wonderful, the landscaping beautiful !! I would recommend Cashew Villa, and would have no qualms going back there again...anyone with questions, feel free to contact me.
