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

St. Lucia DateHouse Villa

  • 5 of 5

We had never been to St. Lucia before and we needed a minimum of 2 bedrooms ( 4 people) and a full kitchen for our 1 week stay. We found this rental villa on line and, the pictures were very enticing... and, after talking with the owner, Robert, who was very detailed about location, transportaion, restaurants, nearby beaches etc we decided to book the villa.

Once we arrived in St. Lucia on saturday afternoon and had a Taxi bring us from the airport to the villa (approximately 1.25 hour drive) we arrived at this place set on a hill above the carribean sea with spectacular views. The on-line pictures actually do not do justice to this home away from home. The views in every direction are amazing. The housekeeper "Ann Marie" had dinner waiting for us when we arrived (at our request because we were arriving late) and she stayed and showed us around.We could not belive how nice the facility was. Very spacious for 4 or more people (4 bedrooms available) and the pool is where we spent most of our time when we were there. We did rent a car and take some tours of the area (left side driving for those coming from the US). We spent 4 out of the 7 days right at the Villa, using the pool and watching sunsets from both the pool area and the Master Bedroom balcony. Total relaxation!!

We also walked to the Calabash cove resort to use the beach facilities and we also went to breakfast and dinner one night. less than 10 minute walk...

Ann Marie keeps the place immaculate and you have the flexability to have her there as little or as much as you want during the day. We chose to have her there only 2 out of the 7 days. She was very interesting to talk to since she knows the ins and outs of the area.

The villa is very safe (has a security system and a front gate so no one bothers you) and we will difintely go back. It certainly beats the resorts and dealing with many other guests competing for chaises, pool space etc.-- this is a very private place.

A Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

My family - 5 adults, 2 children and a newborn had a wonderful stay at Date House. We had more than enough room to eat, sleep and play without getting in the way of one another. The house is clean and beautiful with a magnificent sea view, a pretty yard and great size pool. There were also more than enough bath and beach towels, plates, glasses and silverware.

Ann Marie, the housekeeper, was so pleasant and accompanied us to the food store on our second day. We bought what she picked out to make us a few meals during the week. Tropical Villas was also very great to work with and set us up with a rental van, an excursion and even a babysitter for that day. If anyone needs a sitter, we highly recommend Colette. She is the sister of Eltida with Tropical Villas, and a mother of 5. We had no worries while we were out exploring the island.

The next time we head to St. Lucia we'll be sure to stay here again.

Wonderful Relaxing Stay at Date House, St. Lucia

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderfully relaxing week staying at Date House for a week in January 2015. We took the advice about not driving ourselves from the airport, and would recommend that for all guests who don't know the area, as the villa is a bit tricky to find, especially in the dark. Robert, the owner, organised a taxi for us using a local company who he was familiar with, and that worked out very well, we ended up using the same driver to take us back to the airport. The property is lovely, very well maintained and with lots of space, including cover from the fairly frequent rain showers we had that week. There are also many places to shelter from the sun and a lovely pool, which I swam in each morning before breakfast. The views from the garden are wonderful, and even better from the balcony of the master bedroom. We were a bit concerned that the villa was too far from anywhere to eat, as we were keen on trying some of the local restaurants, but were pleasantly surprised to find out that Rodney Bay Marina was very close by, and a short drive away, with a very good selection of restaurants and the best coffee around!! We tried quite a few of the local restaurants and one of the best was at Calabash Cove, literally a walk down from the villa. We went for lunch there a couple of times, the managers are really friendly and were happy for us to use the beach after lunch once, even though we weren't staying at the hotel itself. We didn't eat in much but had the pleasure of drinking Anne Marie's fantastic rum punch, and also having her pumpkin soup one evening. I had heard that her chicken curry was also amazing and would certainly ask her to cook us some more of the local dishes on my next visit - which I'm very keen on making! I really enjoyed my stay in the villa and will recommend it to friends who are looking for a holiday in St. Lucia.

Date House stay - St. Lucia

  • 5 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 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!
