About Jim Tennant

I have worked in Canada's Northwest Territories for 40 years and have volunteered one month per year at St Jude Hospital near Vieux Fort, St Lucia for more than 30 years.

Jim Tennant purchased this villa in 2012

Why Jim Tennant chose Vieux Fort

Last year we decided to buy the house in Laborie, our favorite village on the island. Laborie is not a tourist village but has local stores and restaurants. We will be spending at least 3 months of the year enjoying the climate and the people on this beautiful island in the Caribbean.

What makes this villa unique

We love the garden and the panoramic views of the Caribbean. Saint Vincent is directly south and usually visible unless the weather gets hazy. There is always a breeze which keeps the temperature comfortable. The house is open and airy with large sliding glass doors onto the large patio.

Just across the road there is a path down to a beach, water is warm and we swim there.

There is lots to do within a short and scenic drive including wind and kite surfing, snorkeling/ diving, zip lining.

Island Life is Sweet at Sapphire House

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at this jewel of a property for 2 weeks in February 2014. Sapphire House has all the amenities you could want and is exactly as described and pictured. We spent much of our time on the deck/patio enjoying the sun and tropical breezes. The 180 degree view of the Caribbean never got old. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. You do need a car if you want to explore beyond the village of Laborie. There is a nice bakery (Zeb's Creole) within walking distance of the house. There are also many small restaurants in Laborie including our favourite, Africa House. There are many wonderful beaches including one across the road just down from the house. Our favourite was in Vieux Fort (Sandy Beach). It had a couple of bars with good food and wifi in case the ocean and beach aren't entertaining enough! We had a thoroughly relaxing time at Sapphire House and will definitely return.

Great Place with a view!

  • 5 out of 5
Spent a week in the villa before Christmas and I was very pleased. The villa is in very good condition and is exactly as described on the website. The pictures displayed are exactly what we got with nice view over the bay and the beach is a short 2 min walk.

Adding to the pluses of this charming villa, the surrounding garden are stocked with flowers and coconuts / papayas. My preferred place in the house is the patio which is perfect for al-fresco dining!

The villa was clean. The kitchen is well appointed with everything we could ask for. The bedrooms are large and more generally the villa is very spacious with plenty of air and large windows overlooking the bay.

There is a booklet describing all the nearby points of interest and/or attractions which is particularly helpful. The village of Soufriere with the two Pitons is not too far and I found the Southern part of the island (where the villa is located) much more pleasant than the Northern part (it is more quiet, peacefull, genuine).

I also liked the way we communicated with the owner. He always replied to our inquiries in a timely and professional manner. If I am returning to St Lucia, I'll definitely stay at the Sapphire House again.

Quite nice home. We had some problems due to the heavy rain several days earlier,
but the owner made things right. Well worth the money. You do need an auto.

45th Anniversary get away

  • 5 out of 5
We found this villa to be everything it was stated to be plus. The views from the deck are fantastic, the all glass front room lets in all the sunshine and the place is very bright and cheery. We spent two weeks in late August here and had no bugs at all, but did have a land crab visit us in the dining area one day as well as a toad. The fresh mangos off the tree every morning was the very best. I can't describe the flavor over what we buy at home. The beds are very comfortable and the air conditioners are extremely quiet so as not to keep you awake. We rented a car online prior to arrival, the only thing I can say about that is to be very careful as to who you rent from. We ended up changing to a more reliable company midway in our stay. We feel a car is a must in order to see the island as it should be seen. The locals are fantastic. They will help you in anyway they can and are really friendly. To have a place to call our own during the stay just made it that much more enjoyable for us. We could cook our own meals or drive a very short distance to various places.. One thing to know is that it is very hard to find anywhere to eat on Sunday. Most places close down, even the traffic lights are turned off.

Southern Misssissippi Family Staying in St. Lucia looking for a house

  • 4 out of 5
This house/villa had a fantastic view from the front porch. Only setback of the view, the cable TV cable was in the line of view. Being a shutter bug, that was the first thing I noticed. The house had not been lived in for a few weeks because we visited in the OFF SEASON. Very hot. Doors opening up the living room lets in the sun, breeze and ALL the insects St. Lucia has to offer. BIGGEST problem, was the insects coming in. Had problem with the internet and it took ME about 1/2 day to figure it out after the cable people were notified. Again, the problems with living in St. Lucia, the small things go wrong. Found out that the contacts on the power cords to the equipment were not making contact. Fixed without any expense to anyone! The host and hostess, Hilroy and Kathyne, were very helpful. Even finding a rental car for us when our flight was delayed for a storm. With very few exceptions from the style we live with in the U.S., staying here was as expected. Very surprised to see the amount of "GREEN" saving in the house in the way of LED lights, on demand hot water, and the use of Rainwater! Thank you for a nice stay, and continue to provide a pleasant house!

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay - We will be upgrading the internet router shortly and bug curtains are ordered. We haven't had a problem with insects in the past but probably that summer season is the problem. Love the good feedback re Kathryn and Hilroy.
Thanks again

Best Location in St Lucia

  • 5 out of 5
I have been to Saint Lucia on six previous vacations but Sapphire House is by far the best accommodation I have stayed in yet. Located towards the south end of the island it is ideally situated near the finest beach on Saint Lucia (in my opinion) Anse de Sable - often referred to as "Sandy Beach". It is somewhat removed from the bustle of the main tourist area at Rodney Bay and is therefore ideal if you are looking for a quiet getaway while still having access to the beach (50 yards down from the house). The town of Vieux Fort is a few minutes drive away and has all the amenities you will need while there.

The house itself is magnificent with amazing panoramic views of the ocean and, on a clear day, Saint Vincent. It is located on a large lot that is well-maintained. The house has an enormous south-facing deck which catches the sun all day long. Inside is very spacious and clean and is well-equipped with all the comforts of home. There are two large bedrooms at the front and a smaller one at the back. All have en-suite facilities. Linens and towels were plentiful and clean. Having a full kitchen is nice for those days when you would rather prepare your own meals or fire up the barbecue and try some of the local fish. There are several nearby restaurants but Balenbouche (an old sugar plantation) and Debbies are particular standouts.

Did I mention affordable? At the rates as of this posting, you'd be hard pressed to find any accommodation of this quality on Saint Lucia anywhere near these prices.

I'll definitely be coming back to Sapphire House for my next retreat to the Caribbean!
