Guestbook comments from the owner

...we headed to “Villa Eluna” in Soufriere in the South West of the island, positioned right beside the iconic Petit Piton and Gros Piton Volcanos. Our view and accommodations were heavenly. As soon as we walked into the villa, I gasped and was pumped for the rest of our stay on the island. If I were to ever venture back to St. Lucia, I’d want to bring some friends and stay here again...for the rest go the the blog http://wp.me/p1Zkjv-7p

Beautiful villa with stunning views

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful 5 night stay at this villa. Please note that I did not rate as 5 star in terms of luxury, it is more rustic than we expected and I would say closer to 4 star in that regard, but 5 star in terms of location, basic amenities, beauty and view. The house needs some upkeep work, but it's nothing major.

Citronella (and other oils) candles and natural mosquito repellants seem to have helped, but the mosquitoes are relentless. I finally used Cutter that I found in a cabinet and was mercifully left alone. They do love my blood and seek me out. My husband is much more fortunate.

Ray (gardener) and Jennifer (housekeeper) were absolutely lovely and helpful. It also felt very good to have a security guard at night.

There were some times that the construction noise from the Freedom Bay development was quite annoying, especially when sitting at the lovely pool taking in the exceptional view.

We would absolutely return to this villa if we have the opportunity!

Lovely spot with spectacular views

  • 4 out of 5
Our first trip to St. Lucia...so we had no idea what to expect. The property is fairly much as depicted in the photos, although the pool is almost impossible to keep clean given it backs onto a rain forest like jungle! If you want to come in to a stocked fridge, you need to email the property manager with a shopping list. To do this its a $40 fee. If you are landing on a sunday, you may wish to do this as the grocery store in Soufriere is not open Sunday afternoon. We rented a car which was delivered to the villa. We had no clue that the roads were so trecherous to navigate...we drove up to Rodney Bay and back and it was quite the adventure, firstly driving on the left and secondly the windy twisting narrow cliff-side drops. Pull off and let locals by wherever you can as they drive fast! We toured the volcano and the local waterfall. We rented a 43 foot sailboat and went up to Marigot Bay and back...through Mystic Man tours. Captain Wendel and his mate Alfred took great care of us. Great day! The villa is close to Soufriere and a few attractions...but far from Rodney Bay (2 hours) and Castries (1.5 hours). The grocery store in Soufriere is not great...just an FYI. Treat yourself to the spectacular views and dining at Mango Tree at Stonefield Estates just up the road. A short walk down to Margretoute Beach...a steel uphill walk back. A short 5 min drive to Sugar Beach. We also ate at Dasheen which is 5 min away as well... great spot looking at the Piton. The villa has both 220 and 110 outlets so a converter was not needed. Hairdryer also on site. Maid service from Jennifer on Mon/Wed/Fri each week. Ray the pool man/gardener took great care of the high maintenance back yard :) A security guard oomes by every night and says hello. Apparently there have been some incidents over the years on the island so its nice to know someone is watching out. There were a few ants/bugs but we found some spray on site. There are a few basics in the kitchen but not much (few spices, salt, pepper, sugar). The toaster only works on the left and you had to put it down 3x...time for a new toaster. The coffee maker did not work so we used the french press instead which was fine. The tv is only for dvd's...no television/cable or satellite. If you are renting a car get a sport utility not a sedan as the roads here are ridiculously steep...and the driveway is equally as steep. We had a fabulous time with great weather and quite enjoyed the villa.

Great Honeymoon Spot!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at Eluna for the first week of our honeymoon and could not have been more happy with it. The house is amazing. It is a dream home with beautiful views, awesome architecture and style, comfortable, and has lots of WOW appeal. The kitchen had everything we needed. The bedroom was very comfortable. I loved the bathroom shower that completely faced out to the plants and the pool. Initially I was uncomfortable thinking that someone can see us, but they can't. There is nobody in view of that area. Water pressure was excellent and never had issues with hot water. Also, the house was perfectly clean.

House was well ventilated and temperature was very comfortable both during the day and at night even though there was no air conditioning. The pool was awesome, awesome, awesome! We didn't want to leave the house/property because it had everything we wanted - peace and quiet, privacy, refrigerator to cool our drinks, mango and starfruit to sweeten our days.

The staff were very nice. Both the housekeeper and gardener welcomed us on the first day. The housekeeper also joined us for our first grocery run into Soufriere. Both very nice and friendly people. We asked the housekeeper to make dinner for us one day and she made a beautiful, tasty, and massive feast that lasted us for 3 days of lunches!

Sugar Beach and Anse Chastanet are easily reachable by car as are some of the popular restaurants - Hotel Chocolat, Orlando's in Soufriere Town, Dasheene, and Martha's. We would strongly recommend renting a car. It will give you the freedom to explore.

Breathtaking view and all the comforts of home!

  • 5 out of 5
We booked Villa Eluna for our honeymoon and could not have been happier with our decision! The booking process was easy and the owner was very responsive to our emails and questions. After you book, you can also arrange transportation and tours through the property manager.

It was our first trip to St. Lucia, but I knew we were in good hands after meeting Jennifer upon our arrival. She took such good care of us! From the beginning, she was extremely friendly, giving us a tour of the beautiful villa and walking us down to the beach to show us how close it was (3 minute walk). She also gave us a run down of the restaurants in the area, the currency conversion and other important things we needed to know. Basically, she is an amazing concierge and keeps the place spotless on top of it all. Besides the top notch staff (Ray, the gardener, keeps the pool immaculate and will bring you a variety of fresh local fruit every morning if you'd like), the highlight of Villa Eluna is the amazing view. The pictures simply do not do it justice. Our favorite thing to do was swim in the large pool, surrounded by lush gardens and fruit trees and take in the view of Petit Piton and Malgretoute Beach. In the mornings, we'd walk down to the beach and have it completely to ourselves. I'd recommend bringing your own snorkeling gear because there is some great snorkeling at the base of Petit Piton, but the water gets deep quickly and there is no lifeguard, so watch out for that!

We spent most of our time outside, but the inside of the villa is clean and modern, with gorgeous windows and doors that open so you are able to enjoy the spectacular view inside as well. We cooked a good amount and used the outdoor grill. Jennifer brought us a fresh fish one day for us to cook ourselves, and I highly recommend hiring the personal chef, Chef Basil for at least one meal during your stay. He cooked us a fantastic 3 course meal featuring fresh red snapper and had great stories about St. Lucia to share on top of it all. We ate at Boucan, Mango Tree and Jade Mountain during our stay but Chef Basil's meal was the best by far!

We were really sad to leave Villa Eluna - it is located in a safe and quiet area of Soufriere and even our local driver said we had one of the best views/location on the island. We visited the north side of the island one day on a tour and that made us even more confident that we had made the right choice. We will definitely be back one day!

What a Stunner!!!!

  • 5 out of 5
We arrived at Villa Eluna in the daytime. We were greeted by the lovely Jennifer who gave us a quick tour of the house. When we arrived all of the windows and doors in the villa were open. The breeze was lovely and the view was absolutely to die for!! We couldn't take enough pictures of the Petite Piton and the Caribbean Sea. Sunsets were magical. The pool is big and again faces the Piton and the Sea. We spent so much time in the pool and just lounging around by the pool.

The Villa is modern, cool and nicely designed. We loved the way the concrete floors juxtaposed with the traditional louvered windows and the lush landscape. Even the path behind the house was pleasant to walk along. The kitchen is great - You can fix your eggs while taking in that amazing view. Keep the windows closed while lighting the burners though - the breeze can sometimes blow it out.

We obviously chose to sleep in the master bedroom closest to the pool. Both rooms are big and the bed we slept in was very comfortable. The en suite has a shower for two and a view to the pool and the piton. The bedroom also has a walkout right to the pool - the first thing my husband did every morning was swim.

We cooked a lot. At least breakfast everyday. And then we discovered Chef Basil. We had him cook a Creole meal for us. Needless to say it was sensational. You must get Chef Basil!! Ray the Gardner brought often brought us fresh fruit from the property - he was very sweet.

We only went out twice. Once to Dasheene restaurant in the Ladera Hotel, which we liked a lot and once to the Great Room at Sugar Beach, which we loved.

This was our first non-hotel vacation. We are converted. Villa Eluna is amazing. The staff friendly and nice. We tried to stay an extra week but the villa was booked.

Until next year!
