Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday villa in Vieux Fort - Coco View Villa

Secluded Villa in Tropical Garden Panoramic Ocean ViEW. Villa, 4 Bedrooms + Att

SPECIAL SPECIAL SPECIAL - 25% OFF NOV 30 - DEC 14, 2014. Unfortunately, a guest had to cancel to to medical reasons and we therefore have a last minute availability so we're offering a 25% rate discount. Take advantage of this excellent offer and enjoy the fabulous views from this 500 sq ft deck overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea. Minutes from the airport, second largest town, and the nicest beach on the island!

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!

This is the real St Lucia

This was our second time staying at the villa. Ken and Diane are truly amazing hosts with incredible knowledge of their surroundings. We visited the local market and fisheries and ate local food including some of the best fish I have ever tasted.

A walk out the back of the property with Ken and Diane was one of the highlights, meeting local farmers and workers and sampling some fantastic fruits.

The villa is a home from home, very comfortable and with the most fabulous view which you never tire of. I have no idea why anyone would want to book into a hotel when you can have such a great relaxing time at Ken and Diane's home.
The kitesurfing is also great and there are a couple of good spots 10 to 15 mins away. Sandy beach is lovely, wild and quiet with a couple of good eateries right by the beach.

Thank you for such a wonderful stay and for inspiring me to cook some different dishes!

We recommend it!

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!

Owner's Response: Hi Scott & Amanie,

Agreed, we wish you could have stayed longer too! It was certainly a pleasure having you stay with us at the villa and join us on the boat as well! We truly hope to see you back down here to visit with us again soon!

We hope you had a good trip back and are feeling rejuevenated after the vacation.

Thank you the excellent review, we're so glad you enjoyed your stay with us!

Kind regards

Diane
