Welcome to your dream home for an unforgettable stay on St Lucia!
"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. 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 master bedroom, a 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 some 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 are not suitable for children under 13 - please inquire if you need more information.
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 oftentimes not by screens (however, we are installing screens this fall), 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.
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 www.villagrandpiton.com
Check-In and Check-out restrictions: During high Season 2016-2017, check-in and check-out days are Saturdays.

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.
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.
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.
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.
We are so thankful you shared your beautiful home with our family! We thought we had an idea how nice the accommodations and view would be from the online pictures, but we were blown away seeing it in person! The house had everything we needed, the furnishings are beautiful, and the view is breathtaking! Doxie is so welcoming and kind-spirited. We enjoyed getting to know her, and eating her amazing cooking. We appreciated everything Paul and John did as well. We loved exploring the island, after getting used to the St. Lucian roads! We went from wanting to cancel the rental car at the start of the week to wanting to drive the entire island. Thank you for providing so much detailed information on activities, restaurants, beaches, etc. We loved the Tet Paul nature trail, the Sulphur Springs, zip lining at Dennery, snorkeling at Sugar Beach and Anse Chastanet. The BBQ night at Mango Tree was fantastic, Orlando's was very elegant and he was so friendly, and Dasheene's was our most favorite restaurant. Oh - and the lunch at Jungle restaurant on Anse Mamin was outstanding! We hope to come back some day. We will miss St. Lucia and our gorgeous view!
Villa Grand Piton was just amazing!!! The villa alone was perfect in every way-----the decor was lovely, the floorplan was great for having your own space,, the kitchen was well stocked, the pool was so relaxing, and the VIEW was amazing===beyond words!!! We even saw 6 rainbows which were gorgeous!! Loretta was so nice to work with and helped answer so many questions. Doxie cooked us some great meals (lion fish) and always had fresh fruit fixed for us. John and Paul were very kind and AL, our driver, made the trip so enjoyable for all four of us. He was always ready to take us anywhere we wanted to go and he is such a safe driver. Thank you Loretta for sharing your dream home with us-----we hope to be back soon!!!
St lucia is a beautiful island and we were so blessed to celebrate our special 5oth anniversary at Villa Grand Piton!!! They were more than outstanding!!! views are so amazing and all the help such as Doxie---an amazing cook who even made us a surprise chocalate cake, Paul and John who took care if the grounds, and Al our fantastic driver for the week were so gracious and friendly!!!Loretta was such a joy to work with and answered all and any questions. We had a taxie driver-----the same one every day ( AL ) and it is by far the best way to go----- instead of renting a car!!! He knew all the ins and outs and took terrific care of you!!! We saw 6 rainbows from our very own villa each morning----what a great way to start the day!!! At the end of our stay ---there were four of us--- we didnt want to leave, but maybe, someday we will be back!!!!! Thank you Loretta for sharing your beautiful villa with us------views we will never forget!!!!!!
My husband and I and 2 other couples just spent a week at this fantastic villa. It started with a complimentary taxi ride to the villa. The driver allowed us to stop at both the grocery store and liquor store. We arrived and were greeted by a smiling Doxie, dinner and rum punch. The view of the Pitons is breathtaking. The best thing is it's there when sun comes and goes down, everyday. The villa is more than comfortable, opening up to allow the cool trade winds to blow through the house. You could just stay at the villa all week hanging out at the pool, enjoying the view and have Doxie spoil you with one of her delicious meals. We did venture out in our rental car which was delivered to our house. The road to the house is not for the faint or heart. It is a narrow dirt road but, if you take your time you'll do fine. All to information that the owners supply you with about activities, restaurants, beaches, grocery store is spot on and very helpful. Just remember to leave yourself plenty of time to get to wherever you're going. My husband finished his diving certification at Chester's Dive shop. Chester speared us some lion fish, filleted them and gave them to us to cook for dinner. It was delicious. We recommend Atlantic Riding Stables, Fond Duex Plantation, Rain Forest Adventures (Zip lining and tram ride), Mystic Mike's sunset cruise. We found everyone in St. Lucia to be friendly and helpful. We hated to leave when the week ended
The road to paradise is sometimes....unpaved, but don't let that sway you from the villa of a lifetime!
The views, the villa (and over the top amenities including a bountiful welcome basket), the staff and total experience were top notch. We did originally plan to rent a car but chose to use Jr's Taxi service for the week. Our party of four was thrilled not to have to worry about driving and having a friendly, local as our tour guide couldn't have been a better decision.
Don't miss the opportunity to have Doxie prepare you a meal or two and enjoy dining on the patio. She also made a delicious chocolate cake for my birthday.
Owner Loretta was prompt and professional in all communications we had before arrival. She was so helpful and gave us loads of information for us to plan for our amazing trip.
We hope we are lucky enough to return to Villa Grand Piton one day--truly paradise found!
I knew I had selected the perfect place to stay for our vacation upon pulling up to the villa and getting out of the car. I looked at my husband and his mouth was wide open, jaw completely dropped! I had been (somewhat) prepared for what the views would be since I did the research and selection of our accommodations for this vacation, so I had a bit of an idea of what to expect. He trusts me with all of our vacation decisions and didn't know what to expect, so he was completely floored by how beautiful and majestic the views are. While the pictures online of the views are beautiful, when you combine them with the radiant sun sparkling off of the ocean, the breezes, the refreshing pool and the scent of the bountiful bougainvillea surrounding the villa, it created a sensation and experience that can't even be put into words. It was magical. Upon our arrival, we were promptly greeted by Doxie with a refreshing glass of her rum punch and a tour of the villa. What a way to start vacation! The villa itself is beautiful and meticulously maintained. The furnishings were clean, stylish and comfortable and the kitchen was extremely well stocked. We did a decent amount of sight seeing during our stay, but it was great to have such a wonderful place to relax during the down time. Snorkeling at Sugar Beach and Anse Chastanet was great.....lots of beautiful fish. Our son thoroughly enjoyed the pool which was sparkling clean the entire week. Lots of great restaurants in the area and the local people of St. Lucia are very welcoming and friendly. What was great about this location is that it is in the center of all of the main attractions and a perfect place to stay if you are a nature lover. And don't be put off by the black sand beaches....I was a bit leery about this aspect of the area since we usually do white sand/blue water vacations. The black sand is very fine and the water is crystal clear. It was beautiful in it's own unique way and I'm glad I didn't let my white sand hang-up affect my decision so stay in this area. And if you really need a white sand fix, there's always Sugar Beach! Thanks to Loretta and the staff for all of their help and guidance in making this a trip of a lifetime!! I can only hope that we are fortunate enough to return in the future.
