Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Gros Islet

Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps up to 7)

A light and spacious villa situated in a select and quiet residential area of Marisule on the Caribbean coast. The villa is about a 15 minute drive south to the capital Castries and a 10 minute drive north to Rodney Bay with its beaches, shopping, restaurants and bars.

Date House is entered through automatic gates and then up a sweeping drive to the front door. As you enter the front door the breathtaking Caribbean sea is before you, through the balcony doors opposite.

The fully fenced tropical gardens contain a large private pool (30ft by 15 ft) with plenty of space to relax on the loungers in the tropical sun. The rest of the landscaped gardens contain tropical flowers, shrubs and fruit trees. Visitors are welcome to enjoy fruits such as mango, grapefruit, bananas, plantain, lime and golden apple when in season.

The villa can sleep 7 people comfortably in four air-conditioned bedrooms. The three double bedrooms all have balconies. The master bedroom on the top floor has a panoramic view of the Caribbean sea plus views of the beach at Windjammer Hotel.

The villa enjoys a spacious living area furnished in the Caribbean style, with an open plan sitting room, adjoining dining area and large well equipped kitchen with separate laundry room. All the living areas are cooled with ceiling fans.

There is a covered and uncovered front patio area for relaxing and al fresco dining, where guests can enjoy the wonderful sea views. There is also a small gazebo poolside for extra protection from the sun and a handy additional bathroom and toilet at pool level.

To enhance the enjoyment of your vacation the house has a housekeeper (Monday to Saturday from 9am to 3pm) who will also cook your meals if required and prepare fabulous local juice from the home grown fruit. The property is also managed by a very experienced local company who can organise airport transfers, self-drive car hire, sightseeing tours, starter food packs and generally make sure your trip is hassle free.

Come and sit round the pool and watch the humming birds on the bouganvillias or look at the boats sailing past in the sunshine - but most importantly relax!!

The house enjoys the additional security of a monitored burglar alarm for peace of mind. Additional photos of the house are available on request

Date House stay - St. Lucia

  • 5 out of 5
Our family of 6 adults and one 11-year-old stayed at Date House for a week over Thanksgiving. The location between Castries and Rodney Bay was convenient. The house is situated in a neighborhood just above the Calabash Cove resort. We paid for a transfer to and from the airport and are very glad we did. The house would have been difficult to find on our own as there are no street signs. But once we had driven on our own from the house, we didn't have any difficulties finding our way back, plus the owner provided a map with simple directions to the house and that was useful.
Accommodations at the house were just fine for our family. The neighborhood is quiet and the views are amazing. The bedrooms all had air conditioning. The pool, house and surroundings were very clean. Anne Marie, the housekeeper, was delightful and stayed late to make sure we had a tour of the house. Because we arrived later in the day, we had requested groceries be purchased for the house and that was all taken care of, including a complimentary rum punch to welcome us.
We did encounter one issue on the last night of our stay. The main electrical circuit breaker went out and we lost power. The response from the rental agency was not immediate, but we were able to get the power back on ourselves by unplugging things to reduce the electrical load. The owner and rental agency made arrangements for repairs the next day, so this should not be a problem for future renters.
Having a rental car is definitely necessary if you are going to see the sights of the island or go to a beach (we recommend the beach at Pigeon Island). One caution is that the road to the property is not well kept, so plan accordingly. We rented a van, so that was appropriate.
The villa rental agency representative was very accommodating in helping us book a catamaran cruise and a day of zip lining, and we were picked up at Calabash Cove by both companies.
Overall the property is wonderful and we would recommend it.

St. Lucia Date House excellence

  • 5 out of 5
We had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful villa. The house is very spacious, spotless and well equipped. It has a fabulous patio which we spent countless hours. The view is amazing especially from the master suite balcony, bring a set of binoculars with you to get close up views of all the various ships passing by. The pool is great and welcomed for a cool down in the warm St. Lucia weather. The housekeeper, Anne Marie is a real sweetheart and will be there as much or as little, in our case, as you want. I would recommend having a rental car based on the location, and as other posters indicate a 4 x 4 this really isn't necessary as just need to drive to the conditions as up and down some hills. We had a small car which worked good. It was a short walk to Calabash Cove Resort which was breath taking and decided to have supper one evening which was excellent. The owner, Robert, was very helpful in booking as well as had a visit from the property management rep to ensure all our needs were met - a very nice touch. All in all, we had a wonderful time at Date House and it has set the bar high for future rentals. We would and will definitely return!

Loved this holiday!

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful holiday/vacation at Date House. The house is great: spacious, clean, comfortable, with a wonderful pool and view. In the garden, you can pick fresh coconut straight from a tree - there are many other fruit trees too - mango, passion fruit, etc. You can dine in the house or out on the patio - you can watch the sun set over the ocean every evening with a glass of rum punch + plenty of day time activities. What's not to love?

Not safe

  • 1 out of 5
As I was highly influenced by the five star reviews on this site I feel obligated to post our experience for future travelers. We paid for a five night stay and only stayed one night. First of all the location is quite isolated. Reviewers state one needs a 4 by 4 rental because the house is on a one lane narrow dirt road on a hill with twisting turns, pocketed with pits and bumps. There are several turns one needs to take with no signs. Even off the main highway one relies on landmarks to find the correct side street. In the dark it felt quite perilous and scary. The neighbourhood does have one or two nicer houses however I would not describe it as upscale. I would describe it as threatening. In fact the property is gated with an alarm very appropriately; I did not feel safe. Neither did my husband who is normally fearless.

Another misrepresentation is that there is only air conditioning in the master bedroom although that is not stated. It felt hot and humid in the other rooms.

Next door lives a dog that is kept outside. He is harmless however he constantly barks. After I finally fell asleep I was awakened twice by his barking which occasionally was joined by canine friends.

I understand people have been able to walk to a beach but there is no way I would have felt safe walking off the property. In fact we felt like we could barely see the ocean from the house.

On a positive note I felt the property management was very concerned and responsive to us and would work with them again. Also the housekeeper clearly works hard to keep the house spotless.

St Lucia is a long way to travel and days off from work rare enough. Therefore we cut our losses and fortunately found a lovely replacement and had a wonderful vacation. I would definitely not recommend the Date House.

Owner's Response: We were sorry and upset that these guests decided not to stay with us or give us the chance to help them. We did not at any time mislead the guests and this is the first time in nearly 8 years of renting the property that we have received a review of this nature..

The guests arrived in the dark and by the time our concierge manager arrived the next morning they had packed their bags and checked into a hotel for the rest of their visit.

In terms of the guests specific comments:

Our villa is situated on the point between two luxury hotels (Calabash Cove and East Winds Hotel). The area is populated by professional people (lawyers, doctors etc.) and is regarded as being up-market and a desirable place to live in St Lucia

All roads in St Lucia have potholes and we are not denying ours doesn’t. We always recommend that people should book a 4x4 as it provides the best ground clearance. The road is not a dirt track, it mostly has a tarmac surface and for the last 200 yards has 2 concrete strips. The road finishes at our property so there is no passing traffic.

There are few street signs or road names in St Lucia and storms have caused recent damage to the infrastructure that the government is working hard to repair. Because of this we also offer to arrange a taxi service to take guests to the villa from the airport and many of our guests prefer this option, especially if arriving late after a long flight.

In terms of the specific comments about the house

We clearly state in the general description of the house on VRBO that the four bedrooms have air conditioning and all rooms have ceiling fans. In common with many villas in St Lucia we have an open lifestyle in the general living areas with the balcony doors and windows always open when occupied, thus negating any benefit of air conditioning in these rooms

See the photos and other guest’s comments and decide for yourselves about the sea views and tranquillity of the area.

Superb stay!

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I were on a catamaran cruise and stopped off on St. Lucia for 4 nights which we spent here. The house was easy to find, close to Rodney Bay and Castries and convenient for shopping. It is a lovely house exactly as shown in the photos. It was rather hot downstairs, even with the fans on, we escaped the heat by dipping into the pool.... sipping the T'punch made by the very friendly housekeeper Ann Marie and then enjoying the fab views from the air-conditioned master bedroom. Ann Marie had decorated the house so nicely with fresh flowers and it was spotless. The owner was so helpful when booking. We were glad we rented a 4x4 as the road down to the house was a bit tricky in parts even though a standard car would do it OK. It was mango season and the huge laden tree in the property left her fruit on the driveway for us after every rain shower - heaven! We had a superb meal at Calabash Cove, less than a kilometre away. Only a few slight inconveniences were the dog barking next door, no desk for computer/working/writing activities and no direct access to a beach.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time here (extended a night) and would happily recommend it.
We would definitely recommend this house to couples and families. There is no fence around the pool so it wouldn't be so suitable for families with young children though!
Thank you!
