A holiday villa in Castries provides the perfect base for exploring further afield by road or by boat.

As such expectations were very high and as the time came closer I began to get nervous, how could anything live up to such hype? Delighted to say that our stay at the White Turtle did. Beautifully laid out, magnificent views, wonderful pool. The love and attention to details that Dan took in building is seen everywhere. The thoughtfulness for his guests needs was also apparent. Honestly there was nothing we looked for that we did not find in the villa, extra towels, well equiped kitchen, comfortable beds with excellent linens. Very happy to recommend the White Turtle.

The 3 double on suit rooms are a great size and we're perfect for our party of 6, there are plenty of fans to keep you cool at night. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking and making cocktails plus a nice BBQ for knocking up some lovely jerk chicken.The outdoor eating/chilling area is massive and we spent plenty of time out there winding down, staring out at the lovely view drinking a few Pina Coladas. The pool is a good size and was used often to play water volleyball whilst the lady's lay on there sun loungers soaking up the rays. Serena and Tony have been very helpful whilst here, giving us plenty of information on how to get here from the airport, where the supermarkets, restaurants, nice beaches and things to do whilst here are and cannot thank them enough for the villa. Ps 4x4 a must as very hilly.
