SPECTACULAR PITON VIEWS FROM THIS SOUFRIERE VILLA WITH POOL

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Soufriere

Cashew Villa can be rented as 1, 2 or 3 bedroom self-catering units

Cashew Villa is perched on a ridge, high above the Caribbean Sea. The pool deck and living areas offer spectacular views over the sea, and the Piton Mountains. The self-contained apartment on the lower level can be rented separately or along with the main villa. The accomodation suits outdoor types, there are a lot of great walks nearby. Rental car or jeep is recommended but not essential. The town of Soufriere is 1.5 miles away, Anse Chastanet Resort, Marine Reserve and beach 1 mile away.

In the Area: Cashew Villa is located high on a ridge between the town of Soufriere and Anse Chastanet beach, home of the Anse Chastanet Resort. The beach is public, and a favourite of our guests. Available facilities include snorkeling and scuba diving in a Marine Reserve, mountain biking, tennis, windsurfing, sunfish sailing, and a great beachside restaurant for lunch and dinner. There are many more dining options in and around Soufriere, from local chicken and rotis to top quality international cuisine. Just outside Soufriere you will find the Diamond Mineral Baths, Botanic Gardens, waterfalls, Rainforest, and 'Drive-in' volcano.

Around the island: Soufriere is located on the south-west coast of the island, on the Caribbeean Sea. Part of the Windward Island chain, St. Lucia measures only 20 miles long by 14 wide. The interior is rugged, with lush tropical rain forest covering the steep mountain slopes. The most impressive mountains are the twin Pitons, sheer-walled peaks which rise up from the sparkling Caribbean Sea. The coastline offers many wonderful beaches, ranging from the golden shell sand of Reduit Beach in the north, to the dark volcanic sand of Anse Chastanet Bay in the south.

Supplies: There are several grocery shops and a Saturday morning market in Soufriere. Basic supplies are readily obtainable, even on a Sunday morning. The sound of a conch shell tells you when fresh fish has been landed.

A 'starter-pack' for first breakfast is included, and additional supplies can be ordered ahead of time, just e-mail a list and pay when you get here.

Our housekeeper, Berthia, is available to cook local-style meals, if required.

Cashew Villa Wow!

  • 3 out of 5
View! View! View! Wonderful Sunsets and sooo many Stars!
This review is not to discourage but to inform. Just spent two weeks in this apartment and would not recommend it for no longer than 3 - 4 days. I toughed it out the first week, the second week I was ready to leave; it almost ruined my vacation. When you prepay there are no refunds if you decide, this is not for you.The apartment is secluded, and has a romantic setting, but after several days it becomes too isolated and boring. However, the grounds are beautiful and well maintained, and the lovely artwork can be appreciated! It has no air condition and the ceiling fan is too small and barely working, at night there is no air circulating. The apartment is very small with old uncomfortable mattresses and has springs poking through. Sheets are worn thin and check the towels underneath...It is made of two twin beds scooted together, which cuts down the center. The bathroom has wood that holds a foul damp smell.The view from the terrance is spectacular, but that can be found throughout the island. This location has no fruit trees, so bring your own fruit, but the cashew tree has nuts crashing on the rooftop all day and night. The bugs will attack at dark!! huge bugs! bugs! bugs! A giant black moth I thought was a bat. Perfect if you like bugs...
A car is a must! The location is on a very steep, rocky, pothole and narrow cliff incline, very scary driving, impossible at night. No walking from the villa, unless you are in marathon shape. It cost about $25.00 taxi to ride uphill from town. The villa is GREAT for nature lovers..two small frogs hopped from under the bed one night, and two lizards were in the shower with me! It feels more like a nice camping resort. The pool is too deep for none swimmers. It is 7 ft + No TV, bring your own towels, deck card, tick tac toe, and a blow up mattress,forget about the BBQ...not happening. Alvin is very nice, he is the grounds keeper. The nearest beach is at Anse Chastanet resort, it is nice, but remember if you walk down you have to hike back up! The Still has a nice restaurant. Overall, quite the adventure...

It's all about the view

If you want complete relaxation away from it all, just enjoying the peace and quiet, this is the place for you.
Just spent 5 days in this appartment and would recommend it to anybody who's not too fussy about their home comforts - no air con, ok facilities but fairly basic, birds and bugs galore - just for the view!
It isn't mentioned in the description but car hire is absolutely essential, access is on a very steep and bumpy track, you couldn't really walk anywhere from the villa. You can have a car delivered to the villa if you don't fancy driving there straight from the airport. That's what we did and it saved us trying to find the place on our own, we just got a taxi from the airport.
Otherwise the description and photos give a good idea of what to expect, the place is clean and well maintained.
The appartment is small and we were lucky the villa above was empty so we had the pool and garden to ourselves, otherwise it would have been a bit cramped. The main feature of the appartment is the terrace - did I mention the view! - but it is in full sun all afternoon, so again, we were lucky to have exclusive access to the shady area around the pool upstairs.
Who needs nightlife when you get those sunsets!
Great welcome from pool guy, housekeeper and owner, all very helpful and friendly.
Nearest beach is at Anse Chastanet resort, they'll let you use it even if you're not a resident. Avoid the beach restaurant at lunchtime - ok at best. Rest of the resort is a bit of a concrete carbuncle.
Soufriere town is a bit rough around the edges but great fun to go and buy fruit and veg from the street stalls and you can find all basic supplies and a few eateries.
Lots to do around Soufriere: great botanical gardens, sulfur springs, rainforest ...etc.
Best local restaurant we found was at Ladera resort - again great views! Restaurant is called Dasheene and serves modern caribbean food, lots of interesting use of local produce.
Also worth going to the restaurant at Fond Doux Estate, a cocoa plantation with nice grounds.
We're already thinking we might go back sometime....
