If you are looking for a quiet place where you can leave your doors open even at night. That's minutes away from shopping and socializing and a short walk from a quiet shady beach. Big beautiful yard and staff that make sure that you are happy and comfortable. Then this is the place for you.

The pool is always the right temperature even early in the morning. The yard is very nice and well groomed. Brand new kitchen and bath with modern fixtures and fittings. Fully equip. kitchen we were able to make cakes, fry chicken, daily coffee, toast etc. Bedrooms have lots of closet space and the upstairs bedrooms all have doors into the porch, as well as air condition. The floors are real wood floors they are b-e-a-u-ti-ful and they feel great under your feet.

The owner is very professional kind and accommodating. The staff was friendly and always willing to help. St Lucian's are very hospitable people and the island is not very big so no where is far in St Lucia. My only regret is that we could not stay longer. Being at that villa reminded me of my happiest days as a youth growing up. My kids already ask if we can come back next summer.

Nice, quiet retreat

  • 3 of 5

The house is very pretty and private. They didn't seem totally ready for us when we arrived (no one was there with keys, water wasn't turned on) but staff were friendly and helpful. We LOVED the private chef who was recommended and are so glad we hired her to cook for us! Extra towels would have been nice, as well as some blankets in the bedrooms.

Looking to plan a trip back

  • 5 of 5

It has been a few days since we returned to the cold and we are all missing the wonderful time we shared in Saint Lucia and at Flambeau House. The accommodations themselves, the proximity to Windjammer, the wonderful food and people of Saint Lucia will be remembered fondly forever. I would give Flambeau House and Saint Lucia as a whole two very enthusiastic thumbs up. Thanks for everything Leslie.

Location: Awesome

  • 5 of 5

Amazing place! We had never been to the Caribbean so we did not really know what to expect, but the whole place exceeded our expectations by a million miles. The listing on the homeaway website was accurate, and the layout was the same pretty much as depicted, and it was clean and well maintained, although the garden was a touch dry here and there but we were told that there had been no rain for ages and in fact it did not rain at all except for once or twice in the night, so I think Vincent did an awesome job to keep it as green as it was. It was like a little oasis of heaven, a little slice of heaven where we just completely unwound and relaxed. We ate our breakfast out in the manicured little garden above the pool and there were lots and lots of hummingbirds to keep us company! All around the little mown lawn and hedges of ficus (i think!?) at the back were huge trees as there are no houses above the villa, so it was so peaceful and magical. I really wish we could buy the place and live there forever (pipe dream again!). Leslie was very kind and courteous and did offer to arrange a few tours of the island although we never got around to doing any of that as we just ended up swimming in the pool and totally flopping around. We will surely do some touring next time as the few locals (the taxi driver and the check-out girls at the grocery stores) were charming. There are some basic groceries when you arrive but you do have to get to the shop to stock up on the things you want. Overall my husband and I look back on our stay with such fond memories and we can't wait to come back. It was so so lovely.The customer service was great and it was easy to book and sort all that boring stuff out. We would recommend this place to anyone looking for a place to de-stress and enjoy a wonderful and regenerating holiday in a beautiful place. The little beach about 5 minutes away was also gorgeous. Overall it was a wonderful experience we can't wait to repeat! Thank you to Vincent and Leslie!!

Flambeau House in Rodney Bay

  • 4 of 5

Stayed a week with family and friends. The listing description and location were accurate. The property was clean and well maintained and the owner was always available and helpful. It was perfect for our group of 8 as we tend to shop and cook (great BBQ) for ourselves on vacations like this. Grocery stores close by in Rodney Bay and local restaurants (Laurels) were good as well. Bedrooms well air conditioned and WiFi was a plus for us. Having our own pool was wonderful.

Beach at the Windjammer was only a minute away and was very safe. Scuba dove with Steve's Scuba and they picked us up at Windjammer dock which was excellent. We would dive with them again as the service and professionalism was excellent.

Minor drawback at the house was the lack of water pressure in the shower and the need for a dishwasher that worked. Needs a new coffee maker and a bigger variety of cooking pans if you plan on doing your own meals Having said that, we would definitely stay here again. Leslie (owner) was attentive and dependable. Oh yeah, house comes with a groundskeeper and housekeeping comes in once a week (both excellent).

Can't fault the property at all. Spotless.

Very welcoming and catered for any need. Felt like everyone wanted us to enjoy our stay.

Ideal family getaway.
