About Miryam Lachance Blasko
We are retirees who love to be away from the Canadian winter for a few months. St. Lucia is a perfect location because the temperature is constantly warm and the pace of life is slow. We cherish the time we get to spend on this beautiful island!
Miryam Lachance Blasko purchased this Condo in 2003
Why Miryam Lachance Blasko chose Gros Islet
A family member lived and worked in St. Lucia for a few years. We were fortunate to visit a few times and loved Rodney Bay. This property became available so we jumped at the opportunity to be close to the ocean for daily beach walks, swimming and snorkel.
What makes this Condo unique
The biggest advantage to the property is the location. You are minutes away from the beach life but quietly secluded. The best of both worlds.

Great location, great value, comfortable home away from home!
The apartment is very comfortable and convenient to town, grocery store, restaurants etc. Beautiful Reduit Beach is an easy walk down a short, sandy, very lightly used road in front of the apartment complex. The location is wonderful. The apartment has two air conditioned bedrooms with a very comfortable queen bed in each. We used the AC only at night and it made for great sleeping. During the day and in the common areas at night, the temperature was warm but made comfortable by several ceiling fans, and each of the bedrooms also has a stand up, quite powerful, floor fan (also good white noise at night - lots of tree frogs and birds outside the windows - lovely, but noise easily covered up by fans if needed). The kitchen is basic and well stocked with cooking equipment, dishes, appliances, etc. There are nice touches such as books for loan, sunscreen in a basket, laundry detergent (full washer and dryer in the kitchen - very handy), paper supplies and some shampoo, lotions, etc. We even played Scrabble one night from the collection of games that are available. One of our favorite spots was the back porch, which has a table and four comfortable chairs and looks out on the parking area and driveway to the beach which are surrounded by mango and pomapple trees and lots of beautiful flowering bushes. Mangos were dropping right and left and were just delicious. Many beautiful birds were back and forth among the trees and even paid us a visit on the porch at times. Lots of beautiful hummingbirds all around as well. The pool was wonderful too - perfect for a post beach or early morning swim. We had a couple of nice happy hours up there as well. There is a charcoal grill by the pool that could be used for a meal by the pool. The pool was also beautifully landscaped, with loads of just gorgeous flowers all around. Coco, the landscape maintenance man, was very friendly and attentive. Delia, the property manager, was extremely helpful and friendly, and she was very gracious in waiting for us when we were delayed upon arriving initially - and when we had to hurry to check out in order to get to the marina on time. Miryam, the owner of this lovely place, was also extremely helpful and responsive in our emails prior to the visit, answering a multitude of questions with great patience and being very flexible about our ever varying numbers of guests and changes in plans. The cost was extremely reasonable too. Thank you so much, Miryam!!
We had a wonderful week. Miryam’s place had everything we needed for our home away from home. She was also very helpful to provide the name of a friendly and helpful driver to get us to Redruit. The condo is within short walking distance to restaurants and groceries. Delia, her property manager, was also very helpful for arranging transportation back to the airport.
Thank you for your kind words. We are glad you enjoyed your stay.
Great vacation. Loved the place
This place was perfect. Steps to the most stunning beach and calm teal blue waters. 5 to 10 mins walk to any great restaurant. The condo has everything you need. We BBQ'd by the pool a few nights, and ate out at some great places. Try the new Amici Italian....the best! Miryam was amazing to deal with and so patient will all our questions and concerns. And Delia was there in a flash with the couple of minor issues we had. We will definitely be back. What we loved about St. Lucia the most (aside from the condo) was the people. Every single person we met, locals and non, were so nice, helpful and accommodating.
If I had to give one negative (and it's hard!) I'd say the pool area could use a little updating and some new Pool furniture. Other than that....perfect. Thanks Miryam and Delia!
Thank you Diane for your kind words. We are so happy you enjoyed your vacation. As for the pool, there are discussions underway to update. We too are looking forward to new chairs and umbrellas! Hope you come back again.
easy access to the beach and restaurants in Rodney Bay.
Thank you Beth for staying with us. We are glad you enjoyed the condo.
The property is well maintained and very clean with parking facilities.
My family had a great holiday and the location was ideal. In terms of safety we had no issues or concerns
Very nice quiet area
Condo was nicely equipped with most everything needed and in a quiet area close to beach. Fruit trees all around the property dropping fresh fruit. Just a great location. And the property owner and caretaker were both awesome- friendly and helpful whenever any needs arose. Thank you Miryam and Delia
Thank you Robert. It was a pleasure hosting you. We are glad you enjoyed the Island and hope you return again.
The central location is great for accessing everything you need locally and for planning tours to anywhere on the island. You can do as much or as little as you want from this great location.
