My husband, Simon and I are English and moved to St. Lucia in 2007. We renovated this property and set up Blue Skies.
We love the Island and our ambition is to help our guests have a fantastic time.
We love the Rodney Bay area, it is where everything happens. You have the best of both worlds: the buzz surrounding the restaurants, bars and night-clubs along by Reduit Beach...The beautiful scenery and quiet sophistication of Rodney Bay Marina parading elegant yachts of every shape and size.
Within a few minutes we have Pigeon Island - a National Park, so quiet and beautiful: you can lay on a near deserted beach taking in the fantastic views with the calm waters of the Caribbean sea gently lapping.
For contrast, travel another 7 or 8 minutes to the wild side. Cas en Bas Beach is on the Atlantic Coast: here the constant warm winds provide power for the Kite Surfers and horses take their riders into the sea. The landscape is rugged and breathtaking.
We offer to take our guests to all the places mentioned, the day after they arrive, to show them the diversity of this part of the Island and hopefully help them to get as much as possible from their stay.
Throughout the time guests stay with us, we are available to assist; whether it is a small thing like where to buy a particular item or some thing larger -planning a major excursion of the Island for instance, we are always delighted to help in any way we can - we love St. Lucia and want our guests to leave with unique and long-lasting happy memories.
Francine Anthonisz purchased this apartment in 2007
A clean and large apartment set-up for living comfortably, a pool a step away, a nice porch to sit outside and enjoy the day and evening, two very friendly and responsible hosts and three dogs to keep you company, or not depending upon your pet needs. The pluses, make sure you have Simon or Francine pick you up at the airport. Cooler with cold beverages and a bit of local info on the 90 minute drive to the apartment. Very much appreciated the orientation the following day to get a feel of the layout. A short 10 or 15 minute walk to the supermarket or go further to town about a 1/2 hr from Blue Skies. If you don't want to walk and Simon or Francine aren't available call Alie the Cabbie! HE IS FABULOUS! Timely, clean, safe drive and knows so much about everything happening on the island. Plus he's a chef you want him to cook at your apt. It is a bit far for beach enjoyment but that wasn't a problem for us as we were busy with different tours and places of interests. Simon and Francine are as friendly to visitors if you wish or if it's privacy they give you that. I appreciated that aspect of staying at Blue Skies. All in all, I highly recommend Blue Skies.

We are minutes away from Rodney Bay Mall, Marina, Reduit Beach, Gros Islet village the golf course, the racquet club, shops, supermarkets, restaurants and nightclubs as well as Pigeon Island National Trust Park, home to the St Lucia Jazz Festival, and Beausejour cricket ground which hosted the World Cup Semi-final.
A short walk takes you to the Rodney Bay Marina where you can hire a boat to go whale watching or deep sea fishing. Frequent buses leave from there and you can be in Castries in 15 minutes, or Gros Islet for the Friday Night Jump-up part in five.
Hire a car and visit The Pitons, marvel at the walk-in volcano and stroll through the old capital, Soufriere. Take a sedate airborne ride through the rainforest canopy or observe the exotic flora and fauna as you hurtle down a zip line.
St Lucia's beautiful beaches are ideal for windsurfing, sailing, kite surfing, water skiing and water biking.
