In the Marina Village, near to the Beach, with full use of Resort Facilities
About Cliff Walker
Cliff and Angie would love to welcome you to our lovely apartment in the Marina Village in Marigot Bay, St Lucia. We hope you love it as much as we do and that your vacation is everything you dreamed it would be! (please note, Teddy is a silent partner...)
Cliff Walker purchased this Apartment in 2015
Why Cliff Walker chose Castries City
We applied to be on the British TV show, "A Place in the Sun" (known as "House Hunters International" in the United States) as we love the Caribbean, having visited it many times over the years. After viewing dozens and dozens of properties on the internet, we hoped that the TV show would find us that "special place". We hope anyone who stays in our apartment will agree they exceeded expectations!
What makes this Apartment unique
Not only is our apartment in a beautiful exclusive Marina, amidst the stunning scenery of Marigot Bay ("The most beautiful bay in the whole Caribbean" - James A Michener, novelist) it is right next door to the luxurious five star Capella Resort. Guests staying in our apartment have full use of the resort facilities, including two amazing pools and a fully equipped gym, bars, restaurants, and a spa. (Charges apply in bars, restaurants and spa)
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.

Beautiful apartment in a stunning location
We enjoyed a very relaxing and enjoyable week stay at Marigot Bay. We split our days on the beach, at the Capella pool, and on day trips via boat visiting other bays and snorkeling. There were plenty of choices for dining in the area. Some you could walk to and some by water taxi but all less than 5 minutes away.
The condo was very quiet, comfortable and easily assessable. The only caution I would give is the electricity is not 110 like it is in the states, although an adapter was provided.
We especially liked watching the boats that would come in the bay and stay for a few days and the sunsets were like we’ve never seen before, absolutely gorgeous!
Plenty to do to keep you entertained at night as well, Piton is the local beer.
We found the people there very friendly and willing to help make our stay enjoyable.
All spoke perfect English. Land taxi’s and water taxi’s were on hand to take you wherever you wanted to go. A special shout out to Tom who cooked us a lobster meal on the beach as well as served us several “coco loco’s” with Marigot’s own coconut rum.
Yes we had a great time and would definitely consider a return trip.
Highly recommend! Best location! The pictures are true to the condo!
My husband and I just returned from an 11 night stay in this condo.
I feel the location is the best to stay on the island.
The condo is just like the pictures. Very clean, beautiful and relaxing. Had everything we needed & more.
We enjoyed the balcony every morning where we had coffee.
It was also nice to sit on the balcony, enjoy a cocktail and not get wet when it rained.
The use of the resort next door is a plus! They come around with free coconut water in coconuts while at the pool. :) Music and dancing in the evening while enjoying dinner.
I have a bad back and the bed was comfortable.
The store downstairs had the necessities we needed.
The Indian restaurant across from the unit was one of our favorite places to eat. They were very kind to us and made us chicken soup & a special tea as we both caught a slight cold.
I would recommend:
1. Renting a dinghy at the beach for $50.00 U.S an hour. We enjoyed two hours and went to places along the coast line we were unable to get to by car. Took great pictures.
2. Renting paddle boards at the beach.
3. Enjoy a whole day at the beach. Doolittles - eat lunch and dinner, use the pool there, play billiards and listen to music into the night while watching the sunset.
4. Pigeon Island for the day. Climbed to the top of the fort. Great views for taking pictures. Have lunch there.
5. Visit Rodney Bay. Walk the marina and have lunch with great views. Duty free shop.
6. Have a cocktail at DJ’s which is a ferry ride across in the corner of the bay.
Watch the yachts come in and the sunset!
7. Have lunch or dinner at Mangos and watch the sunset.
8. See the Pitons
9. Take a walk up the hill every morning for some good exercise & great pictures.
10. Rent a car and take a slow drive along the coastline.
The island is beautiful and the people are great.
I would not recommend driving at night!!!
The roads are a little stressful! :)
We would highly recommend this unit!

Nice Little Hideaway in a Perfect Location
We thoroughly enjoyed our one week stay. It was perfectly located near the resort, the marina and the restaurants. Thank you Cliff. Thank you Pauline for your help.
Everything and more!
This apartment is exactly as shown on the site. Very nicely decorated and has everything you need for your stay. Booking on the HomeAway site was secure and easy. The owner Cliff was always quick to respond to any inquiries about the property and the area. It was a comfort having the property manager meet us upon arrival at the apartment and was very helpful in arranging taxi services for us. No need for any extra utility fees and security deposit was returned in a timely manner.
You can feel safe at Marigot Bay and Marina Village. The resort directly next door is a simple two- minute walk away along the bay. Formerly Capella Resort now named Marigot Bay It has two beautiful pools for you to enjoy. Absolutely beautiful boats and yachts coming and going in the bay.
We did venture across the bay to the beach to go on a kayaking tour. This was one of the highlights of our trip. A couple hours long. Very enjoyable and excellent guide.
We ventured out on our last evening to have dinner across the bay at Hassy's restaurant. This is a very small outdoor patio type restaurant across the bay. My husband and I shared a pizza which was very good and a couple of drinks and really enjoyed just relaxing and looking at all the lights in the bay at night. Price for dinner and drinks was very reasonable.
We were on vacation to attend a destination wedding at one of the high-end resorts. We went to the resort for a full day on the day of the wedding. I would stay at this apartment before ever deciding to stay in a resort. You have so many affordable restaurants available to you, use of the Marigot Bay resort, grocery store, etc all at your fingertips. Having our own breakfast and coffee on the balcony each day was far better than going to a cafeteria at a resort. Groceries are much more expensive in St. Lucia than at home (Canada|) but you can bring in anything other than fresh meat, fruit and produce. Crazy as it sounds, we checked a bag with just groceries purchased from home including a cooler with milk and cheeses. Worked out great for us. We also visited the Massey grocery store just 10 minutes outside of the Marine Village for some additional items on our way in from the airport. The apartment has everything you need to prepare whatever meals you want.
Trust the reviews. This apartment and area deserve all five stars. If we ever return to St. Lucia this will be my first choice for accommodations.
The apartment is in the heart of the stunning Marigot Bay, right in the Marina Village, next to all the million dollar super yachts.
Conveniently located to explore all that St Lucia has to offer, from the Pitons, volcano and mudbaths to the south or north to the Rodney Bay area and Castries, including the world famous market.
