Overview

About the property

3BR/3BA - Sleeps 6 – Soufriere, Saint Lucia, West Indies

"Villa Grand Piton" is the ideal place for your honeymoon, anniversary or vacation – a beautiful, private home located on sunny St Lucia in the idyllic Soufriere region. Imagine a romantic, tranquil, spacious villa, high on the ridge of a hill overlooking the Caribbean. Start your day watching the sailboats glide along the sea under a rainbow, while sipping a cup of smooth local coffee or cappuccino. Float in the sparkling swimming pool, surrounded by cashew trees and brilliant bougainvillea. Dine on delicious freshly-caught fish outside in the shaded gazebo as the sun sets over the Caribbean. Marvel at the most stars you have ever seen after dinner, sipping a glass of wine while being cooled by the mountain breeze. Everywhere you look, you are surrounded by a postcard-perfect panorama of the Piton mountains and the Caribbean Sea. And inside, you have all the comforts of home with comfortable queen beds, en-suite bathrooms, air-conditioning in the bedrooms, a wonderfully-equipped full kitchen and an entertainment room.

Villa Grand Piton enjoys an ideal location, enjoying the same jaw-dropping view of the Pitons and the Caribbean as Jade Mountain and Anse Chastanet resorts. You will be just a few minutes' drive away from beaches, restaurants, and activities, but far enough up the hill that you'll feel that you are at the top of the world, away from it all.

Our friendly staff will keep the villa and the pool sparkling clean and give you assistance around-the-clock, whether you need information on the best time to climb the Piton or just need more shampoo.

Additional important information about Villa Grand Piton:

Our home is a non-smoking villa. NO smoking anywhere in the villa or on the grounds.

The villa and grounds pose inherent dangers for children under 13. If your party includes any children under 13, we require a conversation with you prior to booking to describe the situation.

The villa is not available for rent without the staff.

The villa is built in the open-architecture style of most Caribbean residences. This style emphasizes harmony with the outdoors, and does not try to create an impenetrable barrier between the interior and exterior. Doors are not weather-stripped, windows are not covered by glass, and the buildings often have other openings to allow free airflow, allowing insects and geckos into these houses. Our beds and the Jacuzzi all have mosquito nets, and we have an outdoor mosquito-control machine to help keep the mosquito population down.

Given the open nature of the house (interior walls that do not go to the ceiling, no glass covering the windows), the air conditioning in the bedrooms will not be able to cool the rooms, but does blow cool air on the beds to make sleeping a little more comfortable.

Noises also carry somewhat in an open-air house, and you may be able to hear what is happening in a nearby room in the house when the rest of the house is very quiet. We've put some small radios in the bathrooms and there are TV's in the bedrooms. Feel free to turn either of these on to create some background noise.

We do require a signed (electronic signature) rental agreement, which will be provided upon your request to book the villa.

And if this is not enough information, you can find more information at our website - see the link at the bottom of the listing.

Contact information and response time:

Please contact us through VRBO/Homeaway, or call us at the phone number listed. We try very hard to respond within a few hours, at most. If you have emailed and do not get a response within 24 hours, please check your spam filter or just call or text us at the phone number in the listing.

Phony offers - any offer to rent our villa that requires you to wire the money or offers a discount if you pre-pay the entire amount is a phony offer and is a scam. If you are ever in doubt about whether an email that claims to be from us is legitimate, please call us at the phone number listed here to verify.

About Owner - Bill and Loretta

We are a married couple, both with stressful full-time jobs, fighting the traffic of a big town (Houston) every day. Four kids, one yet to go to college, so our lives are very full. We're getting close to retirement, so we started looking for a place to retire, and decided that St Lucia was the only choice after visiting multiple times. We grew up in the Midwest, and never, ever dreamt that we'd retire in the Caribbean! But we love St Lucia so much, we decided to buy our retirement home a few years early, and share our home, so that you can experience the joy of spending time in St Lucia, too.

Why Owner - Bill and Loretta chose St Lucia

We purchased Villa Grand Piton as our vacation/retirement home. We knew it was the right place for us the moment we stepped out of the car - the view of the Pitons stopped us in our tracks and we just stood there, awestruck, for a few minutes. Then we walked into the house, and saw how spacious, light and airy it was, and we were positive this was the right choice. After spending our first evening there, listening to the tree frogs and the breeze rustling the leaves, we could not imagine any other place that we could call "home".

We hope you find it as magical and restorative as we do.

What makes this villa unique

We started vacationing in St Lucia ten years ago, and the beauty of the island, the weather, and the friendliness of the people convinced us we had to spend as much time as possible in St Lucia. We've visited much of the Caribbean, and we've never found any other place where the people are as genuinely warm and caring as in St Lucia.

St. Lucia is a wonderful getaway whether you are looking for romance, rejuvenation or exciting activities. Palm-fringed beaches, unspoiled rainforests and the majestic Piton Mountains make up the gorgeous landscape of Saint Lucia. Natural waterfalls, breath-taking views, friendly locals and authentic culture are sure to impress even the most cultured traveler. St. Lucia has some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. Among the natural beauty of the island are ancient fortresses, fishing villages and gracious town squares waiting to be discovered. You can hike, bird watch and explore the natural attractions of St. Lucia or you can take part in many of the activities on land, water or air from horseback riding to SCUBA diving to helicopter rides.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such a wonderful and relaxing time. I have so much appreciation for the kind and warm people here. Doxie made my trip extra special. I really enjoyed her chocolate tea and special remedies for my chest cold. The food was amazing! This is a magical place and we truly loved every minute.

Amazing views! We had to be dragged away!

  • 4 of 5

My sister and I needed a break from our NH winter! We did a ton of research and landed on this gorgeous home. From the time we got out of the taxi and saw the view we were hooked.

The house is well appointed and the beds very comfortable with beautiful views from the guest room and plenty of seating outside for our meals and lounge chairs by the pool. We LIVED outside!

We used Jr. 's taxi service and he was wonderful! He knows the area very well and he took us on a tour around the island ($100 US plus tip) and we stopped at Diamond Falls, a volcano (could have skipped that!) and a beach where we walked and looked at the boats and beautiful scenery 🌴 Jr took us back to the airport ($80) and took my sistet to the store for grocery shopping ($40)

The ride to the house from the airport is about an hour and very rough. Unless you have been to St. Lucia before done try to drive. We were so grateful that we were told not to drive. Although the ride was a little rough it was worth every bump in the road once we arrived.

Lots of big fluffy towels, a great movie selection as well as tons of books to read by the pool with your drink of choice. Doxie, our housekeeper for the week, made a wonderful rum punch that we enjoyed at sunset almost every night

We were never hot as the breezes up on the hill were very cooling, but there is AC in the bedrooms if needed.

We had a few challenges while there and Doxie was a big help, even giving up her day off to help us with the grill. We also had an issue with the safe and she fixed that within 10 minutes! She will be your go to person for everything you need. One of the things that appealed to us about this house was the jacuzzi tub, but it wasn't working while we were there so we were a little disappointed but it did not dampen our enthusiasm about our entire experience.

The welcome basket came in handy as we were tired from traveling most of the day.

Loretta was a wonderful host and checked in with us our first full day to make sure we were happy.

We had a great vacation and I'm sure you will love your stay as well.

A view beyond compare

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week in this sanctuary. Fabulous house...the view is surreal! Doxie and Junior were invaluable. I highly recommend having Doxie make your dinner...and have Junior shuttle you around. The house is quite remote and the roads up to the house are challenging (narrow and precipitous). Great area with lots to do and explore...or just relax at the pool or beach.

House is well stocked with everything you could want. Snorkeling gear is quality. Loretta made every detail seamless.

Beautiful Villa, Breathtaking Views, Wonderful People

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely a 5 star vacation at this lovely villa in St. Lucia. I've visited several Caribbean islands, stayed in beautiful villas and would rate this as one of my favorites. Private, very quiet, comfortable, fully equipped, beautiful and the views amazing. The villa is laid out nicely with everything on 1 floor, a few steps to the pool and a veranda with stunning sunset views. Open all the doors in the morning to take in the trade winds and the magnificent sea and Piton vistas. Warning - the view alone may relax you to the point that it's difficult to leave! But more than the great villa and location is the people who helped make it special. Loretta, the owner, is very attentive and knowledgable, will answer endless questions and have you well-prepared for travel. Dottie, local manager, housekeeper and cook is fabulous. Her island cooking is wonderful and I highly recommend a relaxing evening with her catering a delicious meal. I've driven on other islands but after the ride up to the villa, my family voted I should leave the driving to Junior. While I missed the driving adventure, we not only had an excellent, dedicated driver for the week but a local expert in everything: restaurants, attractions and local connections. Leaving the driving to Junior meant no maps, no research and no taking it easy on the rum punch. A few other tips: We stopped at the store near the airport (and I'd recommend doing this) but their absolutely the best Welcome "Basket" is a bounty of food and refreshments enough for snack, dinner and a hearty breakfast (maybe more than one!), skip the volcano tour but consider the mud bath, make restaurant reservations after sunset as the villa has gorgeous sunset views, experience the island by boat and leave the driving to Junior!

Living in a postcard!

  • 5 of 5

You will feel like you are living in a postcard while staying at the Grand Villa Piton. Views are breathtaking; staff and amenities make the stay most relaxing. Doxie, John, and Neal took good care of us. We were glad Loretta recommended Junior as our driver -- saved us money and eliminated stress. Loretta truly things of everything and is most gracious with the amenities she provides. Thanks Loretta for sharing your villa and for your prompt/informative assistance in planning our trip!

Owner's Response: Dear Jerry - You re so very welcome! We feel St Lucia and the wonderful views of the Pitons from Villa Grand Piton are truly special and need to be shared. And, yes, the view is like a postcard, or a screensaver (I have it on my work computer and everyone is amazed when they hear it is real and not a "PhotoShopped" screensaver). Junior and our staff truly make vacations special - we are so fortunate to have them. We hope to see you again soon. Best wishes, Loretta
