Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Gros Islet, St Lucia your home away from home

The town of Gros Islet lies in the far north of the Caribbean island St Lucia. The Rodney Bay Area of the small town caters to the tourists visiting the island with exclusive beachfront properties, hotels and apartments. The crystal clear Caribbean water, overwhelmingly beautiful island scenery, as well as the party vibe of the town, make Gros Islet holidays a popular choice for those visiting St Lucia.

Things to do in Gros Islet, St Lucia

The main attraction in Gros Islet is the Friday Night Street Party, otherwise know as the “Jump Up”. This weekly party features sidewalk barbecues and vendors, and revelers can dance in the streets to the reggae, calypso and zouk music until the wee hours of the morning. During the other nights of the week you can visit some of the many clubs in the area. Renting one of the holiday apartments in Gros Islet is a must if you enjoy a good party.

If you are looking for a quieter Gros Islet holiday experience then you can visit the peaceful Pigeon Island National Park, where you can hike up signal hill. The view from the top is truly breathtaking. There are also military ruins from Colonial times as well as from World War 2. Pigeon Island is also home to the world famous St Lucia Jazz Festival each May. The island was artificially joined to the mainland at the Rodney Bay Marina.

At the Marina you can hire a boat and go sailing in the spectacular blue water. Other water activities include snorkeling, scuba diving, windsurfing and kayaking. If you prefer to keep your feet on dry land you can sunbathe on one of the sandy beaches (Reduit, Windjammer, or Vigie) or relax in your Gros Islet villa.

Places to visit on holiday in Gros Islet, St Lucia

No trip to St Lucia would be complete without taking a trip to the world’s only drive-in volcano at Sulphur Springs Park near Soufrière on the southwest coast of the island. The small town is also home to the Diamond Botanical Gardens with its picturesque Diamond Falls and mineral baths. It is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the natural beauty the island has to offer.

If you are renting a Gros Islet villa and can pull yourself away from the stunning beaches, a great way to explore the island is to go on a plantation tour. Various sugar, cocoa and fruit plantations offer tours where you can watch how the products are processed and enjoy some of the local cuisine.

Temperatures remain between 20°C and 30°C throughout the year. The steady trade winds bring cool reprieve from the high temperatures, which means that any time is a good time to take a last minute rental villa on a Gros Islet holiday.

We hired a car from the airport which wasn't A problem at all , we also had a taxi driver Who waited at the airport for us that Gareth organised for us as 5 ladies obviously would have too much luggage to fit in one car only :-) it was around a 90min drive from the south to where Gareth house is located. Once we arrived we were greeted and warmly welcomed by Gareth himself who showed us around the house and reassured us he can be contacted via email anytime during our stay(which we surely took advantage of )He gave us useful Tipps where to go out for dinner and which Beaches to Visit. The house is clean and has all essentials needed for self catering. The pictures don't do the place any justice as it's much bigger and just a very special place to spend a very unique time with friends and loved ones! House is surrounded by lots of trees and green landscape and you have the perfect view incl the amazing blue sea! A car is essential for your stay , the nearest super market is a 10min drive away which is located at Rodney bay together with bars, restaurants and the main big beach. If you want a more local feel then we suggest you spend your evenings and long nights in Gros islet where the locals welcome you with smiles and good places to taste local cuisine. At no point did we ever feel unsafe. We can not wait to return. Thank you for everything The nurses crew Sonya, Uta,Simone, Gemma and Antje Ps: do not forget your mosquito repellent :-)

The Villa is very spacious, clean and comfortable, the beds are so relaxing did not want to get up in the mornings, bedrooms have there balconies which is nice to just sit in the mornings and gather your thoughts the bathrooms(especially the bathroom in room 2) very up to date and modern, the Villa has all the mod cons everything you could ask for The surroundings is peaceful so you can laze around the private pool and just listen to the birds or take a walk down to the beach. With 24 hour security you are safe. Martin was very helpful and supportive and even made contact when the rain storm hurricane Matthew paid the island a visit, to check that we were all ok. If you drive I would recommend getting a car, which is not that expensive, it only about 5 mins drive to Rodney Bay, the roads are safe. Alternatively you can ring Ali taxi drive who is assigned to the complex, very reasonable rates and very accommodated, i.e. showing around Rodney, best places to eat and drink and where the local street party is held at no additional cost. We will definitely be returning back to St Lucia and staying at this Villa, sadly its not available in December so will have to wait 2017.

Listening to the birds in the morning was delightful. The plunge pool was much appreciated and breakfasts on the terrace with the breeze rustling in the palm trees was such a pleasure. We swam in the large main resort pool each day and mostly had the pool to ourselves. The local beach is wild and good for walks and there are great beaches for swimming at Rodney bay & Pigeon Island a short drive away. We loved our time in St Lucia - thank you!
