About the property

This large 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment lies in sought after Cap Estate and enjoys wonderful rural views across to Pigeon Island.

Less than 10 minutes from the tourist hub of Rodney Bay the apartment features a spacious open plan living area and fully equipped kitchen (370 sq ft/ 34 sq mt).

Both bedrooms are large (220 sq ft/21 sq mt and 174 sq ft/16 sq mt) and each has its own modern bathroom with walk in shower.

Outside there is a lovely L shaped, covered porch (40ft x 8 ft/14 mt x 3mt) adjacent to the pool and the gardens. The 26 ft/9.5 mt) pool with its gurgling waterfall is a few short steps away as is the landscaped garden. Here you will find humming birds and banana keets flitting between the mango, soursop and banana trees.

The beautiful, secluded beach at Smugglers Cove is a few minutes walk away and the magnificent St Lucia Golf & Country Club is a 2-3 minute drive.

Rodney Bay Marina with its choice of restaurants, bars and lively atmosphere provides is a great place to relax and you should ensure you sample the Gros Islet jump-up; a street party held every Friday.

About Francine Anthonisz

We are an English couple in our late 50s who moved to St Lucia 9 years ago and established Blue Skies Apartments. We have really enjoyed meeting so many new people from different countries; helping them to get the most from their holidays. And of course our children and grand kids love to visit!

Francine Anthonisz purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Francine Anthonisz chose Gros Islet

We took the opportunity to add this property to Blue Skies as it offers guests a chance to enjoy a quiet holiday in beautiful surroundings; but still only 10 minutes away from the tourist hub of Rodney bay.

What makes this apartment unique

To be able wake up to birdsong and be in the pool within seconds. To be able to stroll to a beautiful beach that is so secluded, it almost feels like your own private space.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this villa to explore Northern St. Lucia. We could not be happier with our choice. We liked the location, very quiet neighborhood. We felt totally safe there. The house was clean, very spacious. Simon was very helpful. He gave us the recommendations for restaurants, grocery stores, places to go and activities to do. He told us a lot of informations about life in St. Lucia.

We highly recommend this place.

Wonderful villa, great location, charming owners

  • 5 of 5

This 2 bedroom villa was clean, spacious and well-equipped, as in the description. Both bedrooms were large with lots of storage space and had their own very nice toilet, basin, mirror and shower. There is a large kitchen and living area with a breakfast bar, 3 tall swivel chairs, settee and 2 arm chairs. Decor very pretty & well thought out.

The kitchen equipment included a large American-style fridge-freezer, full cooker, hob, oven & grill, microwave, filter coffee maker, toaster, kettle, blender and an attractive looking rum punch jar with tap!

The house is an “inside-out” house, so the double doors of the living area opened completely and so did the shutters above the kitchen surfaces. It was really lovely to open the whole area up during the day.

Outside the undercover sitting area was a lovely spot to sit overlooking the pool and gardens. The private pool was large, clean and well maintained with fully automatic lights and pump etc.

There was a utility room with washing machine, ironing equipment and also a barbecue for guests’ use.

WiFi, cable TV & aircon were absolutely brilliant, I have to say! We’ve stayed in many places round the world and these things often don’t work as well as advertised. Here however – fantastic!

The location of the villa is a little remote and it is definitely too far to walk to / from Gross Islet/Rodney bay, but Smugglers bay and beach is only a short walk away. This bay was very good for snorkelling and since this was one of the reasons we visited St Lucia, we were very happy about this! We hired Simon & Francine’s Daihatsu jeep for 7 of the 10 days that we were there and this gave us the freedom to explore the whole island.

Ali picked us up from the airport when we first arrived and was an extremely friendly guy who immediately made us feel welcome. He stopped at the supermarket en route to allow us to stock up until we had the use of the jeep. Although, Simon & Francine had made sure we had the basic provisions that we might need for the first day or so anyhow.

Francine was visiting family in the UK at the time we stayed, but Simon was the perfect host and was very friendly and interesting to talk to. Thank you so much for making us feel so welcome Simon!

We really did have the most relaxing and enjoyable holiday and we would highly recommend staying in this wonderful villa in this beautiful and quite location.

Wonderful villa in St Lucia

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this estate, big 2 bedroom apartment with all amenities and our own pool. Simon and Francine are perfect hosts, very welcoming and helpful. Loved the cat and dogs visiting, and the recommendations for restaurants and places to see. We enjoyed delicious local cuisine thanks to our hosts in Gros Islet and Rodney Bay, as well as the Reef near the airport. Rum punch is definitely the way to go! We would highly recommend this place.

great stay- didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic place to stay! Simon and Francine were so welcoming! They had breakfast food in our fridge since we arrived late in the afternoon, so we didn't have to shop right away. The apartment is great with our own pool and Charlie the cat visiting us daily! Francine gave us an hour tour the morning after arrival, showing us the sites in the area and pointing out good places to eat, away from the typical tourist area, which we would not have found otherwise. Simon advised us about other sites to see including a light house over- looking the sea, in View Fort as well as a great restaurant by the water called the Reef. This really added to our stay, making our last few hours before leaving, so much more memorable!! Thank you Simon and Francine for the best stay possible!

Beautiful stay

  • 5 of 5

On arrival were met by Francine and Simon. Delightful friendly hosts. Apartment was just as advertised. Would love to stay here again. We love their friendly dogs especially ruby! Kids loved the pool and the different wildlife. Smugglers cove beach is only a ten minute walk away. Would recommend hiring the jeep that the hosts hire to their guests. There is so much to see. A different beach everyday!!
