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. The breezes are fabulous and wonderful to have in the Caribbean heat! The villa faces the south east which provide great natural breeze and perfect temperatures in the afternoon! Direct Caribbean afternoon sun can be stifling. This villa has the ultimate Caribbean exposure!
Each deck is private and has over 500 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! Chef available upon request. Fine West Indian Caribbean cuisine. All types of cuisine available as well.
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 needs. 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 and are completely private.
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!
We are retired Officers and we 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 sail 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 are avid sailors and enjoy socializing and showing our guests around the island. We also respect your privacy so you can just let us know what you'd prefer for your vacation.
Diane purchased this villa in 2009
This property is so peaceful, plentiful and has such an incredible view of both the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea that you won't want to miss it! Visit our vrbo.com #447780 Catamaran sailing adventure site, see St Lucia and some other Caribbean islands by sailing yacht as part of your Caribbean experience!
We have local inexpensive taxi service to the beach or you can take the local bus ($1.25 ECD). It is one of the most beautiful beaches on the island and there are great people living here.
The villa is surrounded by beautiful banana plantations of which our local farmers love to have our guests visit. They welcome you to pick the local fruit and vegetables and take them home to eat.
We have a variety of hiking trails that can be either easy or challenging. You can start right from the villa or visit other great hiking areas, for example the World Unesco Heritage Site Gros Piton. The hikes can vary from 1/2 to 41/2 hrs.
We know many of the local business & restaurant owners and can get you some fantastic food for excellent prices. We can also get you personal and discounted tour prices.
If your pleasure is relaxing, you can enjoy the spectacular view from one of our decks which in total are 800 sq ft. Enjoy our swinging chairs while sipping on your morning coffee or happy hour rum punch!
Our experience at the villa was absolutely amazing. Stayed there for a week sharing Palm Suite with a couple of friends. If you like traveling with friends, note that the Villa has only one bathroom. That wasn't a problem for us, just something to be aware of. The villa itself is very light and airy with breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean. It was very well appointed and provided everything we needed for care free and relaxing vacation. The grounds were beautiful. Fresh fruit, vegetables and herbs were available - such a treat. We spent our mornings and evening having breakfast, dinner or drinks outside on the porch. Felt like paradise! And I can't say enough about Carole and Bernie, the amazing property managers who were gracious and knowledgeable. They made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived until the day we had to say our goodbyes. Carole took us on morning walks a few times and that was really lovely. There are plantations around the villa and we've go to meet the farmers. We traveled all around the island visiting different towns and beaches and if this is something you are planning to do, a car is a must. We managed with a regular sedan but I would recommend a 4W drive or an SUV. It is definitely off the beaten path, but you are looking for an authentic experience and want a taste of the real St. Lucia don't hesitate to rent this property.
Wow. This was an incredible rental. We had the pleasure of meeting (and sailing with) the owners of the house as well as spending the week with the amazing property managers who were gracious and knowledgeable. The house was open, airy and clean and the grounds were beautiful. Fresh fruit, vegetables and herbs were available - such a treat. We traveled all around the island and we are so happy we chose to stay at Coco View Villa in Vieux Fort. If you want a taste of the real St. Lucia don't hesitate to rent this property. We can't wait to go back!!
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 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.
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.
A huge house with a magnificent view of the Atlantic Ocean. Thanks Diane and Ken for the wonderful stay on the island.
