About Stephen Gravillis

I lived in Europe for a number of years and worked in an environment where safety and security took precedence. It was a great experience interacting with people from different background. I returned to St Lucia and set up business in retail while maintaining interest in the local property market. I take care of the day-to-day management of our property rentals.

While I maintain a keen interest in business, I make the most of every occasion that arise for me to socialize. Relaxing at my favourite beach restaurant & bar with a nice cool cocktail while engaging in conversation is fun. Occasionally I go dancing, mainly at weekends.

I love my home, it is my castle and I go the extra mile to ensure that all my guests feel comfortable as though it is their castle too. My idea of a great sense of achievement is, knowing that my guests and people in my company are happy.

I am grateful for your interest in our St Lucia Vacation Rental. I hope you will visit sometime soon.

Stephen Gravillis purchased this house in 2002

Why Stephen Gravillis chose Micoud

I was born and raised in the village of Micoud (pronounced Me-coo) which is one of ten districts that is located on the south eastern coast of the very beautiful Island of St Lucia.

Micoud was one of the main farming village and we supplied a high percentage of agricultural products to the rest of the Island.

I enjoy the quiet “Away from the crowds" environment of Beauchamp. Beauchamp is a sub-village in the Micoud district and it is no more than ten minutes drive away from our D’Cartier Rain Forest. The much open space and beautiful surroundings of greenery typifies the truly unspoiled environment of our island. I feel very fortunate to have a comfortable place in St Lucia to call home. Surrounded by nature and having the privilege of being able to produce my organic foods is such an advantage. Conducting our business in the commercial, hustle and bustle districts of the Northern part of St Lucia, then moving away to my sanctuary is truly a privilege. Furthermore, everything, from entertainment to business is easily accessible from where we are located so why reside amidst the crowds?

Beautiful, well maintained, secluded.

  • 5 of 5

Steven was an excellent host. Definitely recommend renting a car to get around, the road is a bit loose in spots but manageable just watch the drains on the side of the road. It's about a 20 min drive to Sandy Beach, which is the closest beach there is food and drink there & 1 hour drive to Sugar Beach. The airport is also an easy 20 min drive. The apartment itself was clean and welcoming. There was wifi, a full kitchen and living area, as well as TV, the night breeze and the fans helped keep us cool despite no AC. Would totally go back!

Ultimate St. Lucian Experience

  • 5 of 5

Margaret and Stephen are exceptional hosts. Words cannot explain their graciousness, above and beyond ANYTHING we could've EVER imagined. The beautiful home is quite near UVF airport with many restaurants and beautiful Sandy beach. Breakfast was excellent and creative with exotic tropical fruits right from their very own backyard. Staying at the BNB felt as if you are with family that you love. The Granvill's are very customer focused so you will enjoy your time here. The home is immaculately clean. Lots of breeze flowing through the home and the balconies are very large. You will not be disappointed booking this accommodation. Staying here gives you great access to Sandy beach with 2 restaurants on the beach (The Reef and Island Breeze) with excellent prices.

Whatever your needs, simply ask Margaret or Stephen. Your wish is their command.

Thank you both so very much for a memorable birthday vacation.

Authentic cultural paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was a memorable start to our vacation to say the least. The property is immaculate, and Stephen and Margaret (along with their lovely family) welcomed us into their home with open arms. We arrived on Christmas Day, and were unexpectedly invited us to share in their Christmas dinner/festivities. The hospitality we were shown was top-notch throughout our stay. Margaret is a phenomenal cook, and was always quick to offer a local delicacy. They were always willing to help us plan our days, and offer any advice for getting around the island. We would definitely recommend this property as a place to stay and really experience St. Lucian living in a part of the island that is very different than the resort areas. We extend our thanks and gratitude to Stephen and Margaret for the opportunity to spend part of our vacation with them.

Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a wonderful stay at your home!

Margaret was so kind and helpful to me throughout my stay! The house is super clean.

The road is a bit tricky getting to the house and I would recommend renting a car while staying at this location!

Thank you both again for a wonderful short vacation!

Perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Stephen’s house for one week while visiting St. Lucia and we were beyond happy with our choice. The property is gorgeous; on a sleepy street, overlooking the rainforest, surrounded by fruit trees, and only minutes from the airport and beaches. We felt completely safe and comfortable during our stay due to the location and our host Stephen. Stephen is super accommodating, friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable of the island. He went above and beyond to make us feel right at home in St. Lucia while also giving us the a true island experience by taking us to local restaurants/bars, and cracking fresh coconuts in his back yard. We are so glad we chose Stephen’s house over a resort or hotel. We loved being in Micoud surrounded by locals and the laid back vibe of the area. Stephen was excellent at communicating prior to our trip- answering any questions we had and helped us with our planning. We wanted a relaxing, laid back vacation and wanted to experience what St. Lucia had to offer outside of the resorts and we feel we got that. If you are looking for more action, night life, tourist- based activities the Northwest part of the island might be more appealing. That being said, we travelled the whole Island and found we loved Micoud the best. A highlight of our trip was La Tille Falls located minutes away from Stephen’s house and the best food we had was at the Limelight BBQ less than five minutes away. We think it’s necessary to rent a car if you’ll be staying with Stephen. We rented a car and it made it easier to get around the island and see everything that we wanted to see. We found the perfect place to stay and would have been disappointed anywhere else. We hope to return to this stunning island again, and Stephen would be our first call. We truly cannot emphasis enough how generous, accommodating, and friendly Stephen is. Thank you for everything Stephen!

Owner's Response: Ryan and Amelia are such wonderful people. They’re a quiet but very friendly couple whom I’d love to host again. They chose to experience a true “St Lucia Village holiday” and it was my pleasure in assisting to make this happen. Their willingness to be among the locals, getting a taste of the St Lucian culture was a great decision. From the moment they arrived I knew they’d be relaxed. Indeed I too felt very at ease with them; the conversation started flowing instantly as though we met before. It became a family atmosphere after we enjoyed breakfast together in my private apartment the morning after their arrival. Ryan and Amelia showed tremendous appreciation for the St Lucian hospitality. Yes Ryan, the guests who followed were really thrilled with your bottle of St Lucian rum! Amelia, your painting is amazing! I shall place it in a picture frame so that our future guests can enjoy too; I know you won’t mind. Thank you so much for leaving the apartment so clean. A real pleasure to have you guys around!

Beautiful apartment, great host

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is large and spacious, it is clean and well maintained with everything we needed. The garden is also lovely. Stephen was a great host, always there if we needed anything and went out of his way to help us. He gave us some coconut jelly and lime juice from the garden, and cooked us a St Lucian breakfast which was lovely! It is in a tiny village, peaceful and friendly. You probably should have a car to stay here but we managed without one, it was quite far but we could walk to the bus and Stephen gave us lifts to the bus stop on the main road too. We loved staying in the south of St Lucia, the beaches are lovely and quiet and i would recommend this apartment to friends.

Owner's Response: I was happy to host Amy and her family. Most important of all, they were very comfortable and had lots of space to move around freely. Before I offered Amy a taste of my Lucian breakfast, I kept thinking “Oh Gosh! I hope they all enjoy this” I felt great when she told me they did enjoy!! That’s the whole idea of a Village Holiday!! Pity there was no mangoes or any other fruit from the garden that I could have added to the Lime juice; they’ll soon be in season again. I would recommend Amy as a guest and I would love to welcome her again to stay at our apartment. Thank you Amy for choosing Tranquility.
