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

Not the quiet, secluded romantic getaway we hoped for

  • 3 of 5

I would have given this 3.5 if I could have. This property is now in need of some updates to bring it back up to the 4 or more level. It is not luxury, it is more rustic than I expected considering the pictures that lead you to believe it is 5 stars. There are many inconsistencies in the pictures. Many small things need fixing that do make a difference when you add them up (ie. sheets ripped/piling, taps rusting/loose, cracked window etc)

The staff are lovely, attentive and friendly. Although the housekeeping could have been a bit better (toilets didn't seem cleaned?) is supposed to be there from 9-3 3 days/week, but I can't figure out what she does for 6 hours. It was great to have the security guard. I never felt unsafe at all. It is recommended that you lock your doors at all times. The gardener does a wonderful job of maintaining the property.

Our major complaint is that this is not a house for a romantic getaway. It is noisy, and not at all secluded. They say it is on 1.5 acres which makes you think it is secluded. It is just off a main road that has large trucks rumbling up and down it all day. There are many properties all around it, although none of them can see the pool area. You look down upon the ugly roof of another property, and if there are residents you can here them clearly (ie. kids shouting). The construction is in full swing, and will probably get worse before it gets better. Right now they are working on villas down by the water. You can hear compressors all day and occasionally more noise such as jack hammers or diggers, and they have yet to start the main hotel. They were clearing bush (weedwacking) at 7am every morning. We knew this was a potential when booking, the noise was disappointing enough to warrant looking around for somewhere else to stay (unsuccessfully). We wound up spending most of our days away from the villa. On top of that noise there are roosters, dogs that bark constantly, goats etc.

As well the mosquitos are as bad as everyone says. You have to close up all the windows at 4:30 to mitigate them. This leaves the house dark and closed in feeling, you lose your wide open views, this was disappointing to us.

The central location is great, cabs to neighbouring properties and beaches were reasonable. The views out to the piton and ocean were amazing! But because of the noise, lack of seclusion and updates needed, I cannot recommend this property if you plan to spend most of your time at the villa relaxing.

Two, widely traveled couples in late 50's

  • 4 of 5

First, the views of Petit Peton and Caribbean are even better than what you see on-line. It is a five star location. The villa is also a bit bigger than we expected. A major highlight was Chef Basil. We had him prepare two dinners. His menu's do not do justice to the food he prepares. It was outstanding. He is also very professional.

St. Lucian's are funny about driving. They seem to want to scare you; spending ten minutes trying to explain how to exit airport. It really isn't that hard and there is basically one major road on island. I drove for a week and found it much easier than many other islands or, for that matter, driving through Europe. The villa is isolated, so I would recommend renting a car or jeep. We got our jeep through Cool Breeze and it was pretty dated. No problems, but it didn't inspire confidence when we saw it.

The Villa could have been cleaner. It is 3 - 4 star in cleanliness and 5 star in location. Once you find the road it is on, it's hard to find the villa as the sign is well off the main road. A sign right by the road would be a big help. A tip, most locals we spoke with didn't recognize Villa Eluna name. Strange. They did respond to Malgretoute... the name of the neighborhood.

If you have a car, you should get provisions at first grocery by airport. Larger and better selections than groceries in Soufrerie. We enjoyed walking about this town; but it won't be for everyone. It is authentic; with a real economy and real people. Some folks hawk their wares, but not bad at all. Some are actually quite helpful. If you want an authentic experience, I'd recommend parking the car and walking around town. Eat where the islander's eat. That said, Petit Peak restaurant on waterfront is for tourists, but is very good.

We hiked Gros Peton. We all felt it was harder than advertised. But, well worth it. Take lots of water, have good shoes and take your time. You will make it and will be glad that you did. I drove there and didn't mind drive at all.

We also hiked Botanical Gardens. Get there early. They let us in a few minutes before official opening time and it was quite enjoyable By the time we were leaving, it was very busy and it would have ruined our whole experience. Lots of busses from cruise boats.

Beautiful villa with stunning views

  • 5 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 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 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 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!
