TRANQUIL, ELEGANT & PRIVATE GROUP & FAMILY VACATION RENTAL IN ST LUCIA

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Gros Islet - RayHope House

4 BR, 3.5 BA, & A Large Study Furnished To Sleep 2 (Sleeps 12)

RayHope House is an elegant, meticulously maintained vacation home located on a hilltop in a secluded and quiet cul-de-sac in Bonne Terre, Gros Islet, at the northern end of St. Lucia.

RayHope House offers privacy, tranquility, and seclusion combined with convenient access to shopping, restaurants, beaches, and activities. The house is just ten minutes from Rodney Bay with its shopping malls, grocery stores, exquisite restaurants, and the best nightlife the island has to offer. Pigeon Island National Park, the picturesque and widely acclaimed Rodney Bay Marina, the Rodney Bay Aquatic, Health and Fitness Center, and Reduit Beach are all just minutes away from RayHope.

Castries, St.Lucia's capital city is a twenty-five minute drive south of RayHope. Visiting Castries and walking around to take in the local scene is highly recommended. Visitors will find an intriguing combination of fresh local vegetables and fruits, local crafts and souvenirs, and a wide variety of local eats at the Castries market. Nearby Port Castries is one of the most popular cruise ship destinations in the Caribbean. Within easy walking distance visitors will find La Place Carenage and the Point Seraphine Shopping Complex which offer fine dinning and duty-free shopping.

RayHope is a two-story house that includes vaulted ceilings, bamboo flooring in all areas except the kitchen, bathrooms and laundry. In addition to its location on a quiet cul-de-sac, the property is secured by a state of the art wireless security system and remote controlled gated entrances.

The spacious ground floor includes a large study, fully equipped kitchen, laundry, half bath, plus dining, living and family rooms that are fully furnished with an enticing mix of tropical and classic furniture.

The kitchen is fully functional with stainless steel appliances including a side-by-side refrigerator with ice maker, glass-top stove with oven, a microhood, and dishwasher. A range of small appliances including coffee maker, toaster, and electric kettle are ready for use.

In addition to a master bedroom and two other bedrooms suites, the upper floor includes a spacious study/bedroom and two balconies that offer excellent views of the enchanting scenery that surrounds RayHope. One of these is a private balcony that can only be accessed via the master bedroom. The master bedroom suite includes a large king-sized bed, delightful furniture, walk-in his and her closets, and a Jacuzzi.

A second bedroom suite offers a queen sized bed while a third super-sized bedroom suite includes two queen sized beds. In addition, the upstairs study has been converted into a bedroom with a queen sized bed that can comfortably accommodate two adults. Finally, two futons in the the very large downstairs study provide elegant seating by day and comfortable double beds when required.

With the exception of the upstairs study/bedroom which has a ceiling fan, all major spaces in the house are air conditioned and have ceiling fans. This combination of air conditioning and ceiling fans allows occupants to choose their preferred method to control climate within the house and ensure that you will never be uncomfortable. The windows and doors are carefully positioned to maximize the flow of caressing tropical breezes right through the house.

Lots of balcony space, a swimming pool, deck chairs, and carefully manicured gardens ensure that occupants will relish spending time outside enjoying the warm sunshine and seductive tropical breezes that blow in from the Atlantic.

We are Prosper and Julietta Raynold. We grew up in St. Lucia but left in 1980's to study at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge. We live with our two sons just north of Cincinnati in Fairfield, Ohio. Julietta is a science teacher at a local high school and Prosper is an economics professor at an area university. Fortunately, our schedules allow us to spend part of every summer at RayHope House and we love it there. We are also fortunate to have an excellent team (RayHope Team) that keeps the property in excellent condition and that guarantees the comfort and convenience of our guests.

Prosper Raynold purchased this house in 2007

Both Julietta and I grew up in St. Lucia and our mothers, siblings, and childhood friends still live in St. Lucia. We both have very fond memories of our childhoods in St. Lucia. During cold winters in Ohio we become very nostalgic about the beach picnics that were traditions in both of our families. We are drawn to the the lush tropical vegetation, to picking mangoes during the mango season, to buying fresh fish directly off fishing boats, and most importantly, to the warm and relaxing embrace of friends and family. We wanted our sons to experience these sensations which are so dear to us and to appreciate their roots. This led us to custom build RayHope House which we absolutely cherish.

RayHope House offers a unique blend of proximity to activities and seclusion and insulation from outside activity. As such, RayHope is an excellent base from which to explore St. Lucia. When we are at RayHope it feels like we are in our own secluded hideaway where we enjoy sea breezes blowing through the house or can sit in the balcony adjacent to the pool and read a book or surf the web. However, when we need groceries, want to eat at a nice restaurant, go to the beach, or engage in other activities we simply hop in the car and get there within ten or fifteen minutes. RayHope is a spacious house with lots of balcony space and many spots for comfortable relaxation. Overall, RayHope House is the ideal vacation house for those who want a truly private vacation with the option of easy access to fun activities and entertainment. If you are thinking of getting married in St. Lucia, RayHope may be the ideal place for your wedding party. RayHope team includes a Justice of the Peace with many years of experience arranging marriage licenses. Tell us what you need and we will arrange.

Family Vacation to St. Lucia

  • 5 out of 5
My family and I decided to visit St. Lucia with our aging mother. We wanted to see the Island through her eyes. What a wonderful experience we had! Staying at RayHope house was one of the best decisions we made. Mr Prosper Raynold made the process so easy and had a wonderful treat at the house upon our arrival (smile).

The site is accurate in its description of the amenities. The location is great (it is about 10 minutes from the mall and grocery store). The property is clean and well maintained (came with a housekeeper, pool man and gardener), but most importantly, Mr. Prosper Raynold and his property manager were always available when we called and they addressed our needs immediately. We are sharing our wonderful experiences at RayHope house with our friends and family. By the way, a few of our friends are already making plans to visit because of our great report and of course, our beautiful pictures. We highly recommend this property and plan on staying again.

Awesome vacation home!

  • 5 out of 5
St Lucia is extremely beautiful and Ray Hope House was our own little retreat when we wanted to spend time with our family over the holidays. Plenty of room, our own pool (!), close to shopping and several beautiful beaches. Where else can you have a cleaning lady, gardener and pool guy in a private home while vacationing on a beautiful, sunny, tropical island. The listing is totally accurate with the photos showing the home and property as they are. I would recommend Ray Hope House readily to family and friends, and already have friends asking about it after they saw all of the photos that we took of the island.

Owner's Response: Thank you Dianne for sharing your family's experience at RayHope House and for your unqualified endorsement of the package we offer. We worked very hard to ensure the accuracy of the description of RayHope House in the listing and are pleased to note that you found it to be "totally accurate". The RayHope team is committed to making RayHope House the best combination of quality and value among vacation rental homes in St. Lucia. Given your family's wide experience as consumers of vacation rental homes, we place a very high value on each of the five stars you have awarded RayHope House. However, we are not about to rest on our laurels and continue to make adjustments to ensure that future guests will have an even better experience than your family had. Thank you for being great vacation renters.
