Make a self catering villa or holiday rental in Castries, St Lucia your home away from home

Castries is the capital of St Lucia and is located on the northwest side of the island. It is a busy port of call for Caribbean cruise ships which use its deep harbour. Consequently there are plenty of duty-free shops and a bustling market. The town itself is quite newly built, having been destroyed by fire several times in its long history. A holiday villa in Castries provides the perfect base for exploring further afield by road or by boat.

Things to Do in Castries, St Lucia

Castries offers unrivalled shopping with its colourful daily market and tempting duty-free prices. Buy local crafts, fresh fruit and Indian spices from the local women in their traditional dress and cotton headdresses. Dining out in Castries is also excellent, particularly at some of the fish restaurants which overlook the busy waterfront. Views from the top of Morne Fortune make this walk well worth the effort. The area is within easy reach of your Castries holiday villa. The hill is the site of Government House and a tour of the exotic gardens is well worth doing. Visitors can also explore the military cemetery, the Old Battery and the Powder Museum, all relics of St Lucia’s colonial past. St Lucia has many fine sandy beaches which are ideal for swimming, sunbathing, snorkeling, diving, boat trips, watersports and even turtle-watching.

Places to Visit in Castries, St Lucia

Castries itself has very little history although the original sea defenses are worth seeing. The central point of the town is the Derek Walcott Square with the Cathedral which is beautifully decorated with candles and flowers. It is in the shade of a huge samaan tree which is thought to be 400 years old. To the south of the square are some of the older French buildings which date back to the 19th century. Just outside Castries is the Marquis Estate, one of the largest on the island. It offers tours of the working plantation, a visit to the old sugar mill and boat rides on the river. Other places to visit include the weekend street party at Gros Inlet and the beautiful beach at Marigot Bay.

Weather in Castries, St Lucia

St Lucia enjoys year-round tropical sunshine, and temperatures range between 29-31°C (84-88°F) making it a popular holiday destination at any time of year. The rainy season is from June to November, but it generally falls as short tropical afternoon showers.

Travel to Castries, St Lucia

The apartment was situated very close to restaurants, bars and the bay. Excellent facilities .

5 of 5
While Marigot Bay is an excellent holiday destination , there is not an awful lot to do there. But having such a well equip apartment certainly helped. Having said that the facilities available at the adjoining Capella, why leave Marigot Bay? Mark ( the owner of the apartment ) arranged for his member of staff , Cyrus, to collect us from the airport and to return us after our stay. Very reasonable rates too. If we wanted taking anywhere or collecting from a location , Cyrus would be there for us. Obviously the destinations and collections were all prearranged . For anyone staying inMarks apartment , the " Hurricane Hole " is a must. Happy hour between 5pm-6pm. Meeting people who own the yachts moored in Marigot Bay all meet there for a daily update . Great fun being a part of that . We ate in for several evenings and had breakfast in the apartment every day. We didn't find it necessary to eat out every evening when the apartment was so well equipped . The little supermarket nearby was stocked adequate enough for our needs although they did sell out of a lot of stock and it took several days to replenish stocks. Summing up. Would we return? We wouldn't give it a second thought. We simply loved our vacation . Mark and his staff were so accommodating , which is exactly what you need when on holiday.

Truly wonderful house that you're sure to love

5 of 5
Congratulations – the White Turtle IS the villa you are looking for. Just book it now! We stayed here for 2 weeks over Christmas – 2 x grown-ups and 1 x 10 year old girl. The White Turtle is a beautiful, contemporary and extremely comfortable villa - with a superb pool, wonderful view - and a great team of people looking after it. The villa "made" our trip, which was our first to St Lucia - a truly special vacation - and even now, some weeks afterwards - we're still talking about it and making longing happy sighs when we think about our time there. The living area has huge fold back doors on to a large wrap around balcony, with superb views over the Caribbean sea and down to the pool and gardens - this, during the day, rather makes the outside and the inside pretty much the same place - and it's wonderful. At night these close fully to create a large and comfortable living area. At ground floor, the bedrooms both open on to beautiful sun-drenched decking of their own, the main bathroom (which is shared between both rooms) is very comfortable - with doors that open up to another showering area outside, which is stunning and filled us with joy. Imagine showering outside, in the warmth of St Lucia, surrounded by plants, overlooking tropic gardens. It's great. Dan, the owner was extremely easy to deal with - and Sabina who manages the house on a day to day basis, *was as helpful as it is possible to be* - and we liked her a lot. The house was spotless. One day the gas hob developed a little fault, and it was fixed near instantly. Dan and Sabina also arranged for us to have a great meal cooked AT THE HOUSE by local chef and master-of-all-trades Davey - a highlight of the stay there (do this if you get the chance). Is this super-fancy with lots of bling- no! Is it well appointed, comfortable, clutter-free and contemporary -yes! Having stayed in, probably hundreds of vacation rentals around the world, I can honestly say this was one of the best experiences. On a practical note, the Internet was fast enough to watch Netflix/Amazon Prime (we watched the whole of the OA on Netflix in the evenings - give it a try!) - the hot water was plentiful, the kitchen is well stocked full of equipment (we cooked Roast Beef and Yorkshire Puddings for Christmas Day). We also felt very safe and secure at the house both day and night. The White Turtle - we will miss you. If you're looking for a great house in this part of St Lucia - you've found it.

Wonderful apartment and resort !

5 of 5
Thank you Peter and Gillian for letting us stay in your beautiful apartment in Marigot Bay. The apartment was even better than we imagined from the photos .. 2 huge luxurious bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms, and 3 fantastic balconies to relax on throughout the day. The Capella resort is beautiful and the staff could not have been more helpful, attentive and friendly. The hourly treats by the pool in the afternoon were a real surprise - fruit kebabs, fresh fruit juice, sushi snacks, fresh coconut water and a 4pm cocktail :) We used the Marina supermarket most days for snacks and there are plenty of restaurant options - we ate twice at Masala Bay Indian, Julietta's on the hill once and many breakfasts and dinners at the Bayside Cafe which serves great food. A beautiful apartment in a magical setting.
