Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

This unit is located on the northwestern coast of the beautiful island of St. Lucia in the village of Marisule which is part of the wider town of Gros Islet. Marisule is centrally located almost midway between the capital city of Castries and the central town of Gros Islet. Which makes it easily accessible to the many restaurants, duty free shops and the many beautiful beaches located along the northwestern coast line, all within a 10 to 15 minute drive away.

Just a five minute walk will get you to the warm waters of the Caribbean sea, supermarkets and public transportation.

The unit is ideally located for guest who are interested in visiting to attend international cricket matches. Matches which are hosted by St. Lucia are held at the Beausejour cricket stadium in Gros Islet, which is within 10 to 15 minutes drive of the unit.

The annual St. Lucia Jazz festival is held within the first week of May each year, with main stage events being held at Pigeon Island in Gros Islet approx. 15 to 20 minutes drive from the unit.

So if you are coming for any one of these activities or any other activities such as sight seeing or water sports, you will be strategically placed to take advantage of all.

About Clarence Griffith

I am a St. Lucian citizen and live with my family of 3 including my wife and 2 young daughters.

Clarence Griffith purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Clarence Griffith chose Rodney Bay

I enjoy living on an island such as this because everything i need is within 10 to 15 minutes drive.

What makes this apartment unique

I love the beach and with the Marisule beach within 5 minutes walk from my home its very easy for me and my family to enjoy it at anytime. Reduit beach, Pigeon point beach and many other beaches are within 10 to 15 minutes drive away. I also find that its relatively easy for me to access the City of Castries when i need to and other amenities are within close proximity. St. Lucia is a very beautiful island and provides a wide variety of activities for one to engage in.

It was great, easy access to the beach, shopping and the bus system.

  • 5 of 5

I love the place, it was nice with an awesome view of the sea. Easy access to the main road and the bus system. Clarence was very nice. He took us grocery shopping. The location is perfect. Not to far from the city and also close enough to Rodney Bay, where it's the place to be. Overall we enjoyed our stay.

View is amazing!!! Centrally located to buses so you can get anywhere.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came here on vacation and absolutely loved it. Five minute walk to beach....where there was maybe one other person there and it felt like your own private beach. Less than one minute walk to bus stop which takes you anywhere on the island and saves you tons of money because you don't have to take a taxi everywhere. Clarence, the owner, is very nice and accommodating. Our apartment had a full kitchen, which was good because we were able to buy drinks and keep cold in fridge and take them with us. The living room had plenty of seating and a flat screen tv, bathroom had everything you need including washing machine and bedroom was comfortable. Decor was outdated and not as fancy as resorts but worked for us. Overall I would definitely recommend staying here and would come back anytime.

Comfy and Clean w/ a Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I had a great time spending just over a week at Clarence and Margaret's. The house is located away from the crowds w/ a gorgeous view of the ocean. There is a beach you can walk to down the alley from their house, or it's easy to access areas like Rodney Bay or Gros Islet by bus (closest bus stop in either direction is a 2-3 minute walk). If you choose to walk, Rodney Bay is about an hour away, Choc Beach is in the opposite direction and is a 25-30 min walk. The house is very close to the word "Corinth" on Google Maps. Please be aware that if you intend to walk there are no real sidewalks and sometimes you'll be walking very close to the road. This wasn't a problem for us but it may be relevant to some.

Another thing we liked about the apartment itself is all the amenities that were provided including a coffee maker, microwave, stove/oven.. etc. When we arrived, Margaret greeted us and showed us the room where there were fresh fruits and snacks waiting for us. On our first night Clarence drove us to the Rodney Bay area to pick up some groceries, and gave us a short tour of that area. Clarence also drove us to the Gros Islet party on Friday night.

To those it may concern, the wifi is spotty but functional most of the time. The air conditioning unit in the bedroom works great but without the fan being placed by the bedroom door it doesn't really disperse too well into the living area. Again, these were non-issues for us, but may be relevant information to others.

All in all it was an outstanding stay, and if/when we're lucky enough to make it back to St. Lucia, we would definitely stay here again.

exellent value property..

  • 4 of 5

The owners of this property Clarence and Margaret were the most helpful hosted you could wish for. Their apartments are spotlessly clean and superbly situated within walking distance of a beautiful little beach and so handy for all the public transport. Clarence also has a rental car available which is very good value. Saying that he picked us up and returned us to the airport as a complimentary gesture completely unexpected. We would highly recommend this apartment unreservedly.. Barrie and Anne Feb 17

Amazing and perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Clarence is a great guy! He was helpful from the time of reservation and all the way until our departure from the island. He picked us up from the airport and dropped us off. His amazing wife made it a point to meet us on the day of our arrival. During his spare time he took us to the malls and tour of the island. We never got to rent a car. A call to him would help you if you need to know about restaurants or bars. He even helped us buy grocery and essentials.

Rooms are okay for the price you pay, basic but completely furnished. Wifi is available but weak. He is planning to fix it. You have a grocery store within walking distance.

I would recommend his apartments for singles and couples or group of two.

We were there to watch a cricket match and it was worth it.

For those who plan to drive make sure you call him and try to get a prepaid cellphone. In St Lucia most homes do not have a street address and difficult to locate on GPS.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this apartment. We were there for a week, and we couldn't be happier that we decided to stay here instead of getting a hotel or staying at a resort. The location is incredibly convenient -- there are multiple beaches within walking distance, and public transportation stops are just down the street, making it easy to get to Rodney Bay, Pigeon Island, or anywhere else. Clarence was incredibly nice and made sure that we had everything we needed during our stay. Thanks again, Clarence!
