Overview

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

Fabulous Summer Specials! Guaranteed warm weather and best flight prices!

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!

Our background:

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!

Simply Breathtaking!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came to St. Lucia to get a break from the winter and our seven boys. I wanted a place with gorgeous views of the ocean, relaxing and peaceful. Coco Villas did not let me down, It was amazing. We stayed in the coconut suite on the top level and the view was beautiful. I got to fall asleep and wake up to the view of the ocean and mountains. I like that it felt like my home away from home. I recently stayed in an all inclusive resort in Mexico which was wonderful, but I really felt like I could have been on any beach in the world. I didn't get to see what Mexico was really like or get to know any of the people and how they lived. Staying at Coco Villas gave me the chance to really get to know the real St. Lucia and how the locals lived. One of my favorite moments was waking up to the sound of locals signing on Sunday morning. The music just filled the air. I could of done without some barking dogs in the middle of the night, but that was a part of the real experience that I will never forget. Everything in the yard is pretty much edible, so I got to try some local fresh fruits and veggies. I also picked some herbs to make a meal. It was so relaxing to cook a meal since my view was so gorgeous! I loved the privacy I had versus a large resort. The local beach was beautiful, relaxing and not crowded. Our hosts, Carol and Bernie, also made our trip so wonderful. They were so helpful, kind and made sure we had everything we needed. They treated us like family and I am blessed to call them friends. We also got the pleasure of meeting the owners Captain Ken and Diane. Wonderful people! They took us out on their catamaran for an overnight tour. We sailed from Rodney Bay to the Pitons in Soufriere. We learned about the Island and sailing. Diane and Ken cooked us wonderful meals. The views of the ocean and of the Island from a sail boat is so amazing! I still dream of about it wishing I were still there. Miss you all! The Anderson's

Absolutely Awesome

  • 5 of 5

Peace and tranquility embrace you at the Green Heart!

The ever present ocean breeze, with surprisingly low humidity, envelopes you while the awesome views of the ocean and natural landscape surround you from the spacious decks on all three levels.

Each unit is designed with a very functional layout, with all the essentials to satisfy your day to day needs.

Your personable and dedicated staff made each moment a joy throughout our stay. A sincere thanks to Theresa for keeping the Villa sparkling clean and to Martin, for his focus and daily effort in maintaining and developing the various fruit & vegetable gardens and filling the property with beautiful natural plants and flowers to be enjoyed year round. I've got to say "Hey Boss, your freshly prepared coconut milk special morning pick-me-ups were definitely a treat and appreciated every day :)

Hugs and kisses to our friends Bernie & Carol who ensured all our desires were fulfilled and that “Every Little Ting” was Alright!

It was really nice meeting you Ken, sorry we missed you Diane. But, this was such an incredible vacation, I know we will be back soon to spend time with you both and enjoy St Lucia from your eyes - not to mention being able to visit with all the beautiful people we met there this time.

If you want to feel the real St Lucia, you need to experience it from this kind of environment - where you have the opportunity to meet new friends who are happy to share their island and life style.

Fantastic time in St. Lucia

  • 5 of 5

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.

Simply amazing!

  • 5 of 5

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 is the real St Lucia

  • 5 of 5

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!

  • 4 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.
