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.

Fantastic Stay!

  • Review Submitted: 12-Sep-2012
  • Date of Stay: Jan 2012
This was an excellent place to stay and relax. Like another review, it was a home from home. Very clean, comfortable. The dogs a welcome greeting too! Enjoyed having them around. Nice to laze around the pool. And only a short walk from marina for food and ice cream!! And a short bus ride to the local shopping area.

Is a great location for the friday night fry up too. And a slightly longer bus ride to the capital town is to be enjoyed.

Simon and Francine were both welcoming and were so helpful and are always willing to lend help, advice on planning tours/excursions and hiring of a car if needed.

Accommodation was spot on too with all you need when staying in st lucia.

Thanks guys and hope to come soon.

Incredible Stay!!

  • Review Submitted: 12-Sep-2012
  • Date of Stay: Mar 2012
My partner and I stayed in the Blue Skies one bedroom apartment, and at the risk of sounding repititious, it was the best stay we've had abroad! The property and grounds are beautiful and very well kept, but its main bonus was how homely it felt, especially with the very friendly dogs! The pool is a great bonus for chilling out, especially on the lazy afternoon you don't want to venture too far...Simon and Francine are the best hosts! From meeting us at the airport with chilled drinks for the ride back, to walking us round their garden and even picking some of the ready fruit to share with us for breakfast, taking us around the island to ensure we were comfortable with the location, and giving us local tips... they were simply superb! You really can't ask for more than a stay at this very friendly, warm and welcoming little hub right in the midst of paradise!

The Trip of a Lifetime!

  • Review Submitted: 28-Apr-2010
  • Date of Stay: Jun 2009
We visited St Lucia for two weeks and were blown away by the place. We expected the Island to be exotic and beautiful but neither of us expected it to be quite so lush and mountainous.

After a long flight we were surprised and very grateful to see Simon waiting to pick us up from the Airport. The journey to the apartments set the tone for the rest of the trip, travelling through Banana groves and fishing villages into the heart of the Island towards Rodney Bay. Simon kept us entertained with facts about the Island, told with the enthusiasm of someone who truly loves where he lives. It was great to listen to his stories whilst we sat back and enjoyed a cold Piton which was thoughtfully provided in the cool box between us on the back seat.

When we arrived at the apartments we were very impressed by the standard of the accommodation. We stayed in the 1 bedroom apartment and while it was luxurious and spacious Simon and Francine have managed to maintain a very friendly and homely feel to the place. We felt thoroughly looked after the whole time without feeling intruded upon at any point.

We were keen to see as much of the Island as possible and once again Simon and Francine's knowledge and passion for the place meant that we were given plenty of ideas for excursions and places to eat. We would highly recommend climbing the Pitons and taking a Catamaran trip to the Sulphur Springs and Botanical gardens.

We felt very comfortable at Blue Skies and on days when we had run out of steam (the day after climbing the Pitons springs to mind) it was great to just wallow in the gorgeous swimming pool and read a book.

This really was the holiday of a life time for a young couple and it was made even better knowing that after a long day experiencing all the Island had to offer, we could return to the friendly and relaxing atmosphere offered at Blue Skies Apartments.

I would highly recommend visiting St Lucia and staying at Blue Skies and we hope to return as soon as possible.

Fantastic Holiday!!!

  • Review Submitted: 28-Apr-2010
  • Date of Stay: May 2009
We spent two weeks at Blue Skies after looking at a few others on the internet, and we where not disappointed at all - such a great find ! Francine and Simon were superb hosts and could'nt have done more to make our stay feel at home. Great apartment (we were in the 1 bedroom) - its really spacious and has all the mod cons you need. The pool is fab and is lit at night. We hired a jeep for a week and explored the island - got lost a number of times in those small villages which was interesting ! - you definately need a jeep - a car will be wrecked as some of the roads are'nt great. We went on a boat trip - Mango Tango - this was great fun and also a rainforest canopy ride which was very interesting. Francine and Simon were great in being able to show us all the best places to go, and when we had to give the jeep back, being able to drop us down into rodney bay area . Pigeon Island is a must to go and see by the way - great beach. Some great restaurants down in the strip area - Fire Grill being our favourite. There is so much we could write as we had such a fab time ( i forgot to mention the helicopter transfer - well worth the money !) we will definately go back again soon. St Lucia is a very lush island, so different to the others we had visited in the past - well recommended ! Thanks Francine and Simon - See you again Soon !!!

Brilliant Place to Stay

  • Review Submitted: 25-Apr-2010
  • Date of Stay: Jan 2010
We discovered Blue Skies on Trip Advisor having read all the great reviews we had high expectations - and we weren't disappointed! It was lovely to see Simon's smiley face after our long journey to get there - to arrive at the airport and be greeted with a choice of chilled drinks in the car was a great touch - but I have to say very typical of Simon & Francine as the great and thoughtful host's that they are, we were frazzled, but it was so nice to find essentials we needed were all provided. Simon & Francine were always helpful and on hand - but never intrusive! For anybody looking for a wonderful place to stay - with it's own pool and gardens, with the privacy you would expect with a private pool, you would struggle to find anything better than "Blue Skies" - or nicer hosts than Simon & Francine. We had a fantastic holiday and hope to come back in the not too distant future.

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.
