FALL SPECIAL SAVE $20 PER NIGHT!

Enjoy a relaxing vacation overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea!.

This scenic villa is abundant in flora and fauna and you can just sit on the deck and enjoy the beauty all day and all night long! The sunrises and full moons are incredible as they shine across the ocean.

Each deck is private and over 300 sq ft of outdoor space and the villa is situated on a half acre of beautiful palms, flowers, and fruit and vegetables for your dining pleasure! In the season, we can also arrange for crab and lobster to be brought to you!

Coco View Villa is situated on a lush hillside overlooking both the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea. The villa can be one, two or three bedroom, whatever your desire. The 1/2 acre property has fruit trees and a number of garden vegetables for your dining pleasure! It's an eco friendly environment that is located close to the International airport and beaches of white sand that are famous for kite and wind surfing! All amenities available within 10 minute drive. There is great local dining as well.

The villa can be rented as a whole or in part as it has 3 separate living areas:

Palm: 2 bdrm, king/queen with full kitchen (DW) and 500 sq ft of deck. Common laundry on this floor, separate but accessible from inside Palm Suite.

Cococut: 1 bdrm, king with full kitchen and 300 sq ft of deck. Separate entrance and joining entrance with Palm Suite, lockable both from both units.

Mango: 1 bdrm, full kitchen and 500 sq ft of deck.

The units are completely furnished with modern high quality furnishing.

All units have laundry access and kitchen islands and sinks that overlook the Atlantic Ocean and the Marie Islands. The view is incredible, our guests are truly amazed.

The gardens include a variety of fruits and vegetable of which some are available year round, others seasonal: pineapple, banana (8 varieties), mango, coconut, apple (golden & love), orange, lime, lemon, grapefruit, passion fruit, avocado, sugar cane, onions, lettuce, tomato, potato (white & sweet), eggplant, Caribbean ground provisions (tania, dashene & breadfruit). Flora includes Palm trees (Traveller, Saw Palmeto, Christmas, Coconut), Bird of Paradise, Allamanda, Ixora, Firecracker, Hibiscus, and Bougainvillea. Our local farmers quite often deliver what isn’t available in the garden to the villa. Or you can take a walk and go pick them yourselves! The hillside and villa are a Garden of Eden!

The neighborhood is quiet and friendly. There are 4 fresh water springs on the hillside and two of them are used in bottling Bamboo Springs water. It's a small plant hidden in a banana plantation higher up the hillside.

All of our guests seem to have truly enjoyed their stay with us and we hope you decide to visit us as well!

Our background:

We are retired Officers and we both love the water. We sailed over 4,000 kms to get to St Lucia. We can help organize land and sea tours for you as we also have a boat.

We can also show you a variety of places to dine or where to get groceries if you'd prefer to cook at the villa. We can also stock your fridge and bar (additional cost) for your arrival.

Welcome to Coco View Villa!

We recommend it!

  • 4 out of 5
We highly recommend Coco view villa. We've talked with other people who have gone to St. Lucia and we feel that we had the best experience. The accommodations were clean and comfortable. The view is amazing. It's high on a hill so there's a nice breeze and the quiet calm was relaxing. It's off the beaten trail and away from the touristy areas but it's close enough to drive to plenty of activities to keep you occupied during the visit so you get the best of both worlds. Ken and Diane are fantastic hosts, they made sure that we had everything that we needed while giving plenty of space. We'd recommend renting a vehicle for your stay to drive around and visit the island.

A wonderful time, great hosts!

  • 5 out of 5
Our stay at Coco view Villa was great! Diane and Ken are excellent hosts. Taking a walk with the dogs the first morning, Diane and I filled my backpack with oranges, lemons, limes, coco pids, nutmet, and a few other goodies. They pointed us in the direction of some of the island restaurants and amenities that people staying at other resorts likely would never have experienced. Being up the hill of Pierrot in a real St Lucian neighbourhood gave us a much more immersive view of the St Lucian culture.

The view from the deck, overlookin gthe Carribean sea was spectacular, and it was a very relaxing atmosphere. Our unit had everything we required, and we very quickly felt like we were in a home away from home rather than feeling like we were in just another hotel room. Our time on their boat "Lost our Marbles" topped it off nicely.

The beach is about a 10 minute drive from Cocoview, though you can see it nicely from the balcony. There is a lot to explore on the island, so don't be afraid to rent a vehicle and explore! But some of the roads are a bit rustic, so getting a smaller SUV would be better. Driving on the left side, with the steering wheel on the right is backwards for us north americans, but it's easy to adapt to.

Overall, a great experience, and worth every penny. Highly recommend.

This is the place if you want to get away from it all!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in the upstairs apartment (king bedroom, kitchen, bath) for 11 days in February. The wrap-around porch had the most amazing and relaxing views of the ocean! We spent endless hours just lying in the sun, reading, enjoying meals, and relaxing on that porch.

This is definitely not for the ‘all-inclusive’ resort crowd but rather for those souls who want to be adventurous, exploring St. Lucia, and getting to know the island beyond the resorts. We rented a 4 wheel drive car (RAV4) while we were here and had no problems driving on the left side of the street. We would stop at the local supermarket to pick up groceries every couple days then just relax and go where we wanted whenever we felt like it. There are so many awesome places to visit on the island that most cruise ship visitors never have enough time to get a chance to see.

Ken and Diane were awesome hosts and took care of our needs while not being intrusive – they knew we just wanted to spend time by ourselves. We really appreciated that since we came here to get away from the unhappy people stuck in a brutal winter back home.

We would highly recommend Coco View Villa to anyone who wants to experience the real St. Lucia!

Great view, Great place, Great people

  • 5 out of 5
The only disappointing part about our stay at Coco View was that we were only there for 4 days! Ken and Diane have a beautifully constructed place with one of the best views on the entire island. Its just a few minutes from the airport and convenient to tons of great food and beaches. They're a great resource for how to make your St. Lucia vacation the best it can be wether you prefer laying on beautiful beaches or filling your days with adventure. We would recommend staying at Coco View to anyone. Additionally we had the pleasure of joining Ken and Diane on their boat for an afternoon; an unbeatable experience. I hope we get the opportunity to join them again some day!

Beautiful villa, awesome hosts!

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I had a lovely, romantic and relaxing week in the Palm suite for our 5th anniversary. The suite was beautiful and breezy, and we LOVED the covered deck that allowed us to watch the rainstorms come in from the ocean, as well as sit outside without getting sunburned. :) The villa was built with a lot of special touches, and love, as the owners Ken and Diane did a lot of the building themselves - what a beautiful kitchen with handmade cabinets by Ken!

The location was about 10 minutes from the airport, and 15 minutes from the nearby Sandy Beach, a nice, non-touristy beach with a couple restaurants (we spent a lot of time at Island Breeze - good food and drinks!) and plenty of wind for windsurfing or kite boarding.

Ken and Diane couldn't have been more helpful or accommodating - we arrived to find our reserved rental car was not available, so they came to the airport and picked us up (and took us to the ATM, to get groceries, and to dinner!) and helped us to find a new car the next day! They also helped us with recommendations for a kite boarding instructor Numaya (WAY cheaper than at the Reef on Sandy Beach) and SCUBA diving with Chester at Hummingbird Resort, both of which we really enjoyed! Diane also took us on a hike through farms and plantations that neighbor the villa, and we got to have fresh grapefruit starfruit, guavas, papaya and more! We also did a fun day trip on their sailboat "Lost our Marbles" :) to Piton Bay, where we snorkeled and had lunch on the boat.

A car is pretty much a must if you stay here. Even if you are into just hanging out and relaxing on vacations (which this place is PERFECT for!), you will still need to go into Vieux Fort to get groceries or use the ATM, or to get to the nearby Sandy Beach. 4WD would be best, as the road up to the villa is pretty rough, but we still did fine with a 2WD.

The villa is about an hour driving away from the touristy stuff on the north of the island like Castries (cruise ship port), Pigeon Island National Park (do the hike up Signal Hill - AMAZING view!), Rodney Bay and a very mild zip line at Rainforest Adventures, all of which we visited. It is also about an hour away from Soufriere, which is where we started off our SCUBA day.

The Palm suite is all one level - the stairs go up to the other apartment, where the door locks from both sides, but can be open for larger groups renting both apartments.

Don't hesitate to rent this place - it is wonderful! :)
