Amazing, center of nature location
We stayed for 10 days in the lower house of Colibri Villa and it was a wonderful experience. It was just my wife, brother-in-law and his wife, so we occupied the 2 bedrooms in the large lower house, leaving the 4 bedrooms in the upper house un-occupied. By splitting the cost with another couple the price was more reasonable than a hotel on the island. Location near Soufriere cannot be beat. View of Petit Piton is perfect. Access to the beach below is down a rough trail (nearly everything on St Lucia was impacted in a big way 3 years ago by Hurricane Thomas, but the trail is do-able and it's a very, very private, partly rock, partly sand beach. Ocean is very warm everywhere. We rented a car for the last 8 days and enjoyed having our own schedule. A 4 wheel-drive SUV is a great way to go. We hired a National Guide for 1/2 day and he did a custom tour, tailored to our desires. We didn't utilize the included cook, since we tended to leave the villa before she arrived, but it was nice to have her available to us if needed. St Lucia was a memorable trip and we enjoyed every minute. By the way, the frogs are VERY loud on St Lucia, so if having some quiet when you go to bed is a must (you get used to them), then just bring earplugs. 3 of us didn't wear earplugs and still slept fine, I DID wear earplugs (I do at home, too) and I also slept great.
We were very pleased with the condition of the property, great open veranda, screening on the windows, great parking for the car, onsite gardener (security), etc. The grounds are beautiful and have not only an abundance and variety of flowering plants, but also many kinds of fruit bearing trees, including banana, mango, papaya, lemon, grapefruit, breadfruit, and more. Febornia sets up whatever you like in any regard. I highly recommend having her arrange a taxi to drive you from the airport to the house, even if you plan to rent a car. even with their excellent written directions, you may not find the villa. It's not like there is a rectangular grid of streets laid out with street signs and addresses on every house. But, once you get there and have the rental car delivered to your door, it's easy to drive away and get familiar with the island (as long as you ALWAYS remember to drive on the left). We drove the car to the airport at the end of our trip, which after 8 days of driving, was easy to do.
We ate in the house for most meals, but did eat at SugarBeach Resort & Boucan, Rabot Estate.
