Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family of 6 adults and one 11-year-old stayed at Date House for a week over Thanksgiving. The location between Castries and Rodney Bay was convenient. The house is situated in a neighborhood just above the Calabash Cove resort. We paid for a transfer to and from the airport and are very glad we did. The house would have been difficult to find on our own as there are no street signs. But once we had driven on our own from the house, we didn't have any difficulties finding our way back, plus the owner provided a map with simple directions to the house and that was useful. Accommodations at the house were just fine for our family. The neighborhood is quiet and the views are amazing. The bedrooms all had air conditioning. The pool, house and surroundings were very clean. Anne Marie, the housekeeper, was delightful and stayed late to make sure we had a tour of the house. Because we arrived later in the day, we had requested groceries be purchased for the house and that was all taken care of, including a complimentary rum punch to welcome us. We did encounter one issue on the last night of our stay. The main electrical circuit breaker went out and we lost power. The response from the rental agency was not immediate, but we were able to get the power back on ourselves by unplugging things to reduce the electrical load. The owner and rental agency made arrangements for repairs the next day, so this should not be a problem for future renters. Having a rental car is definitely necessary if you are going to see the sights of the island or go to a beach (we recommend the beach at Pigeon Island). One caution is that the road to the property is not well kept, so plan accordingly. We rented a van, so that was appropriate. The villa rental agency representative was very accommodating in helping us book a catamaran cruise and a day of zip lining, and we were picked up at Calabash Cove by both companies. Overall the property is wonderful and we would recommend it.

Wonderful, relaxing holiday!

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful 2 week stay at Date House. The villa, pool and gardens are well equipped and beautifully maintained and it is very private. The views are outstanding especially from the master bedroom but also from the verandah where we enjoyed watching the cruise ships depart in the distance and the beautiful sunsets. Ann-Marie is a treasure and we enjoyed her skills with flowers, fish and fresh fruit juices! She showed us where the shops and restaurants were, prepared meals for us (including one for our evening arrival) and seemed to know everyone on the island. We hired a car and it is easy to get into the capital, Castries, or go to Rodney Bay which is full of bars, restaurants and supermarkets. If you like birdwatching we had herons and humming birds in the garden and watched huge frigate birds out to sea.

We were also really impressed with how well organised everything was - we were collected from and driven back to the airport in good time, our car was delivered and collected from the villa, we had food and drink in the fridge on our arrival and all sorts of trips can be arranged for you. We will be back!

Date House - St Lucia (Dec 2009)

  • 4 out of 5
Date House is a luxurious and spacious villa ideally located on the west coast of St Lucia. The villa is extremely well kept, all thanks to Ann-Marie the house keeper who takes a very obvious pride to ensure that everything is maintained to a high standard.

The villa is completely self-contained, with a relaxing / welcoming pool and well maintained gardens – the views looking out to sea are stunning.

Date House is a credit to it’s owners, who gave expert advice on numerous places to visit – beautiful beaches, colourful and friendly markets, restaurants catering for the delicious local cuisine and fine dining.

One can chose to relax all day by the pool or the garden and subsequently enjoy a evening barbeque on the veranda; we frequently feasted on lobster and tuna caught that morning / brought from the harbour on the outskirts of Castries. Or, for the more adventures go snorkelling, scuba diving, hiking through the rain forests – the list is endless.

We certainly hope to return in the near future and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the villa to our family and friends.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this villa. Situated in a very tranquil location and well maintained. The views are exceptional. The owner was extremely helpful, advising of restaurants, beaches and things to see and do. We would most definitely recommend this villa to anyone. It was very hard to leave!

The villa is situated on the Caribbean coast in the quiet residential area of Marisule. It is a 10 minute drive North to Rodney Bay with its beach, supermarkets, shops, restaurants, bars and clubs. All local beaches (Reduit, Windjammer, Vigie) are within a 10 minute drive and Pigeon Island National Historic Park with it's lovely beach is a 15 minute drive. Castries, the capital of St Lucia is a 15 minute drive South from the villa and a further few miles South will take you to Marigot Bay. The property is also managed by a very experienced local company who organise airport transfers, self drive car hire, sightseeing tours, starter food packs and generally make sure your trip is hassle free. The island has two airports, George F Charles airport at Castries (15 minute drive from villa) and Hewanorra International Airport which is Vieux Fort on the Southern tip of the island (90 minute drive from airport)
