The smart architectural design of The Reserve enhances the Trade Winds to naturally cool the unit all year round with a pleasant breeze. The open space concept of each unit allows free movement from the pool to the kitchen without having to open doors or use the A/C. All bedrooms are equipped with centralized A/C systems.
With its expansive indoor and outdoor living areas The Reserve is aimed to provide an idyllic and exclusive place of retreat where one can relax and bask in the Caribbean sunshine, whilst in close proximity to all amenities!
The Reserve is a gated development completed in 2009 comprised of six luxurious waterfront residences overlooking a large swimming pool, set within 12,000 sq.ft of lush tropical gardens. The Reserve affords private dockage where yachts can be safely moored, ready to cruise around the Caribbean’s wonderful inlets. The property is on the waterfront providing both a spectacular view as well as a pleasant breeze from the Atlantic trade winds all year round!
The unit is furnished with fully fitted kitchen, a utility room with a washer/dryer, a powder room followed by an open plan dining and sitting area that opens onto a large covered patio overlooking the swimming pool and the private marina beyond. Both master and guest bedrooms are equipped with en-suite bathrooms and private terraces to provide the level of privacy and comfort you desire. Each unit comes with secure car parking and private boat dockage spaces for your rental car or boat.
The Reserve offers an unparalleled advantage due to its strategic position. It provides an idyllic and exclusive place of retreat where peace and tranquility is assured, yet you can be as active as you wish, as we are within easy walking distance to all of the amenities such as bars, restaurants, cafés, banks, tennis, water sports, marina and much more. To rent a vehicle is a choice but not a requirement!
The owners first came to Saint Lucia over 30 years ago and have been coming back yearly since! They take great pride in keeping thier properties maintained up to date for them to enjoy when they visit, and for the guests that have booked to stay at The Reserve. Your constructive feedback is always welcome!
The Owners purchased this villa in 2009
The Owners chose The Reserve as it best encompassed their vision of exclusive “Caribbean Living” within a small gated condominium giving the sensation of being 'pampered in your home, away from home'!
The architectural design of each unit enhances the Atlantic Trade Winds to cool the unit with a pleasant breeze all year round! Although each unit is equiped with central air condinitioning, the owners can only recommend falling asleep to the tinkling sounds of the Caribbean night!
I'd definitely stay again - Villa Frangipani needed a few things worked on (time to replace those silver arm chairs, owners!) but overall it was a fantastic location and very comfortable. My brief one night stay in Villa Bougainvillea was perfect. Irene, Zan and Mark couldn't have been more helpful! Thanks, all!
Overall the condo was fantastic for its location to everything a vacationer needs and for the pool just steps from the patio. We had a few problems with appliances that we managed to get around. The condo owners provide housekeeping 6 days a week and a grounds guy and security. We weren't expecting that. There is no dryer if you intend to wash clothes. A close line out side is available. Ice maker didn't work. Blender didn't work. DVD remote doesn't work. No music player for I-pod. Wi-fi only works outside on the patio and pool/yard area.
The Reserve Condominium in St. Lucia was a perfect place for us to stay for the 14 days of my son's cricket tour. It was conveniently located right in the centre of Rodney Bay, close to the shops and the beach and around the corner from where my son was staying. The condo itself was beautiful with a gorgeous view onto the marina and swimming pool. The bedrooms and living area were clean and comfortable with a gorgeous sea breeze blowing through the house. The staff, Mark and Irene were very friendly and worked really hard to make our holiday special. Irene's cooking was also excellent. Zan the manager of the condo was also very professional and friendly, making sure we were safely transported to and from the airport with Serenity Airport Transfer company. She recommended some lovely things for us to do as well, which made the trip.
It was so much nicer than staying in a hotel, if you are after self-catering.
Thank you for everything, we'll be back

The property is absolutely as described in the advertising and I would highly recommend it. Everything went very smoothly from the booking process through to the transfers (Serenity Tours) and our final day was made much easier as we were allowed to remain in the property until our pick up.
We have rented many villas and apartments in various countries and found Frangipani to be the best in terms of position to local amenities, shops , restaurants, beach plus an exceptionally well equipped kitchen including juicer and several coffee machines.
There are several original artworks in the rooms and furnishings are high end.
Add in the splendid service we received from Irene who not only kept the property spotless but also did our clothes washing and any dishes we occasionally left out, plus Mark the groundsman who kept us supplied with coconut water (from trees in the garden), our expectations were exceeded.
Occasionally things do stop working as did the fan and the wall lights in the master bedroom, this was near the end of our holiday and I only reported it to ensure they were fixed before the next tenants arrived, however Zaneia insisted they were fixed immediately which they were.
The property is in a very quiet location albeit it being opposite the Antillia micro brewery, a bonus for us and highly recommended if you like excellent beer, food also good.
Most days were spent sitting in the garden watching the boats go by, swimming pool excellent size and warm. We also did some fishing off the boat dock and managed to catch a few using spinners. Put them back as not too sure about water quality in the marina.
If we went to the beach it was usually late afternoon when it was much quieter.
We also used the services of Rule The Tide water taxi and were picked up at the property's boat dock for a day trip and a trip to Pigeon Island.
I can't leave the owners contact details on this review but he seems pretty well known locally and operates off Reduit Beach.
There are a number of really good restaurants within easy walking distance (minutes) the furthest away we used was Spinnakers (15 minutes) where we ate twice, meals there were excellent as is the position on the beach. Recommend their coconut coated prawns and rib eye steak.
All in all we had a perfect holiday and although we generally do not make return visits we are very tempted to make one to Frangipani at The Reserve.
We recently returned from our vacation in St Lucia at Villa Frangipani. The condo and grounds were lovely and very quiet and relaxing. Everything was in walking distance including Reduit Beach which was about a 10 minute easy walk from the condo. We did not really need to rent a car with how close all the stores and restaurants are to the condo. Irene, our housekeeper was very kind and helpful along with Nan and Zina. Hope to come back to St Lucia at some point and we will definitely consider staying at the Preserves again.

We wanted a special place to celebrate a special birthday in February 2015, and we couldn't have chosen better. From the moment we were picked up at the airport by our friendly and knowledgeable driver, Hans from Serenity Tours, the whole experience was one big treat.
We loved the location of Villa Frangipani in particular and the Reserve in general, with its secluded feel yet proximity to many restaurants, shops and services; the view from the terrace and balcony across the pretty garden to the bay; the warm (for us Brits!) swimming pool; the Trade Winds whooshing through the house during daylight hours; the kitchen facilities; the decor and furniture; and all those big, fluffy towels! A perfect place to relax in sheer luxury.
But perhaps most of all we loved the people - ever-cheerful and resourceful Zan, the property and hospitality manager at Premier Properties; capable and friendly Irene, our housekeeper; helpful and responsive Marc, the groundskeeper; tireless and good-humoured John, the night security guard. They helped make our special trip a truly unforgettable experience.
We couldn't recommend the Reserve more highly.
The exclusive residential area surrounding the bay where The Reserve Condominium is located is one of the most renowned bays in the West Indies surrounded by beautiful Caribbean beaches. Rodney Bay Marina is also the destination of the largest trans-ocean sailing event in the world (ARC) which yearly attracts over 200 boats of many different shapes and sizes.
The Reserve offers an unparalleled advantage due to its strategic position and its proximity to St Lucia’s white sandy beaches, hotels, finest restaurants, bars, shops and banks. Rodney Bay is located in the north of the island, minutes away from world class amenities such as the 18 hole St Lucia Golf and Country Club.
