Our reviews say it all, this villa is just like home in a Caribbean surrounding!

Coco View Villa is conveniently located in a country hillside setting surrounded by lush plantations. Organic fruit and vegetables in garden! Save on groceries! The view truly is spectacular; we've been told numerous times that it's one of the most incredible on the island.

This scenic villa is abundant in flora and fauna and you can just sit on the deck and enjoy the beauty all day and all night long! The sunrises and full moons are incredible as they shine across the ocean. The breezes are fabulous and wonderful to have in the Caribbean heat! The villa faces the south east which provide great natural breeze and perfect temperatures in the afternoon! Direct Caribbean afternoon sun can be stifling. This villa has the ultimate Caribbean exposure!

Each deck is private and has over 500 sq ft of outdoor space and the villa is situated on a half acre of beautiful palms, flowers, and fruit and vegetables for your dining pleasure! In the season, we can also arrange for crab and lobster to be brought to you! Chef available upon request. Fine West Indian Caribbean cuisine. All types of cuisine available as well.

Coco View Villa is situated on a lush hillside overlooking both the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea. The villa can be one, two or three bedroom, whatever your needs. The 1/2 acre property has fruit trees and a number of garden vegetables for your dining pleasure! It's an eco friendly environment that is located close to the International airport and beaches of white sand that are famous for kite and wind surfing! All amenities available within 10 minute drive. There is great local dining as well.

The villa can be rented as a whole or in part as it has 3 separate living areas:

Palm: 2 bdrm, king/queen with full kitchen (DW) and 500 sq ft of deck. Common laundry on this floor, separate but accessible from inside Palm Suite.

Cococut: 1 bdrm, king with full kitchen and 300 sq ft of deck. Separate entrance and joining entrance with Palm Suite, lockable both from both units.

Mango: 1 bdrm, full kitchen and 500 sq ft of deck.

The units are completely furnished with modern high quality furnishing and are completely private.

All units have laundry access and kitchen islands and sinks that overlook the Atlantic Ocean and the Marie Islands. The view is incredible, our guests are truly amazed.

The gardens include a variety of fruits and vegetable of which some are available year round, others seasonal: pineapple, banana (8 varieties), mango, coconut, apple (golden & love), orange, lime, lemon, grapefruit, passion fruit, avocado, sugar cane, onions, lettuce, tomato, potato (white & sweet), eggplant, Caribbean ground provisions (tania, dashene & breadfruit). Flora includes Palm trees (Traveller, Saw Palmeto, Christmas, Coconut), Bird of Paradise, Allamanda, Ixora, Firecracker, Hibiscus, and Bougainvillea. Our local farmers quite often deliver what isn’t available in the garden to the villa. Or you can take a walk and go pick them yourselves! The hillside and villa are a Garden of Eden!

The neighborhood is quiet and friendly. There are 4 fresh water springs on the hillside and two of them are used in bottling Bamboo Springs water. It's a small plant hidden in a banana plantation higher up the hillside.

All of our guests seem to have truly enjoyed their stay with us and we hope you decide to visit us as well!

Our background:

We are retired Officers and we love the water. We sailed over 4,000 kms to get to St Lucia. We can help organize land and sea tours for you as we also have a sail boat.

We can also show you a variety of places to dine or where to get groceries if you'd prefer to cook at the villa. We can also stock your fridge and bar (additional cost) for your arrival.

Welcome to Coco View Villa!

True Local Vibe Caribbean Stay

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't agree more with the previous two reviews. The house & gardens are spectacular and meticulously maintained! The house had everything we needed to feel comfortable and cook fresh meals. Wade & Theresa were so kind and accommodating as well as informative. They were terrific with my 8 year old daughter, and a wealth of knowledge for local spots to check out and tips to travel about the southern part of the island. We were also encouraged to help ourselves to the terrific fruits and vegetables the garden offered. The view simply can not be captured in a photo, its breathtaking. We wish we had booked two weeks if only for the pleasure of having coffee in the sun on the expansive deck the Coco View Villa has. We rented an SUV (recommended) and drove to Sandy Beach everyday (5 minutes) it was beautiful and quiet. We were sure to schedule a day on Ken & Diane's boat and it was the highlight of our trip! They are great hosts, knowledgeable and fun! Sailed down the west coast, snorkeled and enjoyed a fabulous lunch of lobster, conch & more! Sailing back we were able to lend a hand in catching a huge beautiful red snapper they cooked up for dinner right there at sunset....perfect heavenly day! We (including my daughter) can't wait to book again and spend more time with these awesome folks! We especially loved the location of the villa, we often vacation away from tourist areas for the experience of local flare, we got exactly that! Thank you, Thank you!!!

BEST VACATION IN OUR MANY YEARS OF TRAVEL

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Coco view villa jan. 24 to feb. 3 its a spectacular place with views of the coast and the towns below.

Ken and Diane were great hosts on our catamaran sail down the coast they provided a beautiful lunch in front of the Pitons

The managers at the villa are Wade and Theresa you would be hard pressed to meet two nicer people. They attended our every need teaching us the local culture taking us to a local Lician farm and explaining the gardens at the villa. We cannot say enough about there hospitality. The villa is all you will need for a wonderful time.

Amazing View and Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

My lady and I had a great experience at the Coco View Villa and with Ken and Diane on their sailboat. We spent the entire day on the water snorkeling, eating great fresh seafood and fruit as well as enjoyed the local beverages: Rum Punch and Peton Lager. Wade and Theresa were excellent hosts of the villa and were very willing to help us with places to see and where to get fresh fish and lobster right off the boats! We rented the top floor which had an awesome view of the ocean, we really didn't want to leave since we had seen most of the Island the week prior. The only regret is that we didn't book a longer stay there! Highly Recommend this place if you are looking for some R&R with a view.

Beautiful View!

  • 5 of 5

My sis in-law, hubby and I, recently stayed here. Highly recommend this secluded villa, beautiful décor and all amenities one can think of. We decided to do our own thing, rent a car and tour the island ourselves. With the excellent welcome and guidance from the Managers, we found our way around quickly.

We were there in June and the mosquitoes were bad. Left with many bug bites, so it's important to wear some guard. No netting on the windows. We bought our own groceries and picked fresh pineapple, coconut and cashews from the garden. It's an adventure and a getaway for those who want a taste of authentic St Lucia.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review about your visit to our villa! Yes, the view is spectacular. We've had people comment that it's the best private home view on the island. You'll have to come back and sit in those swinging chairs and enjoy it again sometime! Yes, June is the start of the rainy season and we do get some mosquitos. Fortunately we have nets on all of the beds and that really helps at night when they are out and about. We've also installed screen doors and windows all around which allows the ocean breeze to flow throughout the villa during the evening as well. Thanks again and hopefully you'll be one of our return guests! We have quite a few who come back every year so book soon for the upcoming season! Cheers from Coco View Villa!

EVERYTHING……and more!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had had it with the NY Winter of 2015, so booked a whole month on St Lucia. The Coco View Villa was number one on our list of places to stay and Diane got back almost immediately….We booked and for months, we were looking forward to our visit. The villa was EVERYTHING and more, as described. What wasn't mentioned were the caretakers, Cynthia and Mike, who from the minute of our arrival, tended to our every need….And here's the best….they became fast friends. When we left, I cried buckets of tears…but I know I have forever friends in Cynthia and Mike. As for the villa, you will NOT be disappointed. If you stay for an extended period of time, you will become a part of the neighborhood…We LOVED that and that's why resorts are of no interest to us. I LOVED cooking meals with all the native veggies and fish and Mike was always ready with a new recipe idea to try!!! The surrounding gardens are beautiful with all sorts of things growing for guests enjoyment…And our next door neighbor, Ernie, dropped off fresh grapefruit…yum…and Harry, one of the gardeners, dropped off mangos. We stayed in the Coconut Suite, the top floor, and it was perfect for our needs…well equipped for cooking and bright and airy. The view is SPECTACULAR!!!! We also had the Palm Suite for a week when our two grown daughters visited and that was fantastic, as well!!! As for Diane and Ken, the owners……they are wonderful…Easy to work with them and so accommodating….I bought a guide book for St Lucia which was totally useless…Diane's packet is MUCH MORE useful and we did just about everything that was suggested….without disappointment!!!! Diane and Ken "found" us on the beach the second day we were there…Off sailing, they stopped by to check in with us…I was amazed that they found us and took the time to make sure we were happy and comfortable…Really? Instant love, for sure!!!! My husband is not a real beach lover like I am, but he found lots to do that he liked doing and so we were both happy!!! Do NOT miss out on a stay here….

Cheers D&K
