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.

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.

Amazing Villa with stunning View!!

5 of 5
We traveled with 3 other couples to St. Lucia, so a total of 8 adults. Overall, everyone was incredibly happy and pleased with the trip and thoroughly enjoyed the villa and view of Marigot Bay. The pool was huge with a deck view that was unmatched, and plenty of deck chairs, pool toys, etc. The villa is very well equipped, plenty of beach towels, etc. The 4 bedrooms we used all had ensuite baths, perfect for our needs, all 4 with Bay views. Just amazing! We were there in low season, so very uncrowded everywhere we went, but fairly windy most of the week with rain several days as well. We appreciated all of Chris's (owner) advice, detailed information, and care for us in general. It’s rare with VRBO rentals to have much contact with the owners and get such solid and truly beneficial pre-trip advice. Pauline (villa manager) was delightful and gave us all the information we needed to settle in that first day. I spoke to her almost daily to set up excursions or ask her opinion about certain things. She was most helpful and accommodating. Cornelius was a wonderful resource as well. Very helpful if there was an issue at the house, or anything else. We took 2 trips with him on his boat. One down south for snorkeling, lunch, beaches, etc. and another day up North to Castries, Rodney Bay, etc. His rates were very reasonable and he was informative and delightful to spend the days with on his boat. We did not rent a car, but hired Moses (Pauline arranged thru Chris) for our airport transfers and for a full day up North to Castries, Rodney Bay, the Fort, and a wonderful fish fry. Again, very reasonabily priced for the entire day, and not having to figure out where you're going on a map was wonderful. Driving on St. Lucia was not conducive to relaxing and looked to be difficult and a bit dangerous in our opinion, if you're not familiar with right side steering wheel and driving on the left side of the road. The villa is perched on a very steep road incline, so walking back up to the Villa is great exercise from the Bay. Our boat transport thru Cornelius worked wonderfully for a trip down South to see the Pitons, snorkel, beaches, lunch, etc. We took our own snorkel gear (Thanks Chris) because snorkel gear isn't readily available to rent for the week. Snorkeling was awesome at the 2 marine reserves Cornelius took us to. Such a great trip! I hope we can go to St. Lucia again and would love to stay at your Villa.

5 Star villa with 5 star service

5 of 5
Perfect spot to enjoy Marigot Bay. Beautiful villas with a picture postcard view of the Bay. The outdoor lift was a boon when returning from the beach, a restaurant or a day out, The swimming pool was small but perfect with a view down to the bay. The concierge service and thrice weekly housekeeping were perfect. Everyone on site was charming, friendly and super helpful. There is nothing you could fault. The villas are stylish and well furnished and the kitchen well equipped. It is like having a deluxe suite in a 5 star hotel but with the flexibility to eat in or eat out. We mixed it up a bit and ate out some days and ate a candle lit dinner on the spacious balcony overlooking the bay on other days. Marigot Bay offers a wide choice of dining options from simple and good value, like Hassy's on the dock - good music, good ribs, beer and cocktails to fine dining at the Grill at the 5 star Capella Hotel with lots of options in between. There is also a small but well stocked supermarket in the Bay. The villas have no car access but are easily reached by the ferry and Pirate's Bay restaurant includes a free ferry in the meal price. Hassy's, Root's & Doolittle's are on the same side as the villas. We hired a car to explore the island and parked in the free car park behind the police station. When we arrived we were met by Trevor who loaded the suitcases into a ferry and took us and the luggage to the villa.. When we left he collected the luggage from the villa at the time we arrange with guest service and took us back to the car. The beach is small but Ok and the Oasis Marigot provide sunbeds and beach towels for villa clients. The concierge services are on hand to arrange anything you want from boat trips, excursions, restaurant bookings and are happy to give advice and help as needed. A really helpful friendly team who welcome you to the island with affection. A perfect spot for a couple. Better than a hotel any day. Even if you don't want to cook it offers you more space and privacy than anything other than the top of the range suite a hotel offers. If you don't want to prepare breakfast, Doolittle's is just down the hill and you don't even need to walk, take the lift. A perfect holiday, can't wait to return.
