About Greg Skinner

SunWest has grown from a love of the island, St. Lucia. This love affair began in 1992, when stepping off the plane felt like passing through a picture frame into another world. The lushness, stunning beauty, rhythmic sounds and friendly St. Lucian's made a yearly visit a necessity. With a background in Architecture and building, it seemed the natural progression to build in St. Lucia. Each time guests arrive, I feel like I am seeing St. Lucia through their eyes again for the first time. My goal is to make sure that my guests have the personalized type of vacation they have in their mind. If interested, I am here to help our guests customize their vacation to take in, see and experience the beauty of St. Lucia while on island so they will leave feeling that they have had the experience of a lifetime. Please take the time to read my daughter's poem which she composed at 13 years of age, following a vacation in St. Lucia. It explains why we always returned to our island in the sun.

Greg Skinner purchased this villa in 1999

Why Greg Skinner chose St Lucia

Home Away from Home....

There is a place far from here

where chimes of steel

sing songs, hot rays of sun pour from the sky.

Happy people dance and chant, with no worries or cares,

a place where you can be free.

It is not a normal place to my friends,

To me it is a home away from home.

It is a magical dream to them that they hope will come true.

To me it is where I spend my best years letting my feelings flow.

It is the hot, exotic pictures in magazines and shows to them.

To me it is where my soul can sing and my mind can relax.

It is what they all ask me about….

What is the sea, sand, weather, life like there?'

To me the sea is like a warm cola that has been

shaken, shattering refreshing, salty water

running down my body.

To me the sand is hot and grindy, melting through my toes.

To me the weather is refreshing, steamy but healthy.

To me life is free, no worries, no cares.

It is amazing to them, a dream, a fantasy.

To me, it is my life, my home, where I belong.

If they wish, I will continue to explain this dream,

but no matter how hard I try,

they will not be able to feel my heart pounding

when I speak of my

home away from home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This incredible adventure began when Greg picked us up at the Hewanorra (Land of the Iguana), International Airport on the south side of the island.. During the one and half hour journey north to Rodney Bay and the villa, Greg provided a great deal of information while pointing out the many natural attractions along the scenic route. Greg had great knowledge and reverence for this island. The drive was absolutely spectacular, driving through lush exotic rainforests and Banana plantations. During this drive we got a whiff of Greg’s great sense of humour and we connected right away.



Once at the villa, we were surprised with an upgrade from the two bedroom Coyaba suite, to the Combined Coyaba, adding another bedroom upstairs. The table was adorned with a beautiful arrangement of Caribbean tropical flowers which lasted for our entire 10 day stay. We had a spectacular view of the Caribbean Sea, the lush tropical garden surrounding the villa, and the beautiful swimming pool from our Coyaba deck. We felt very comfortable and relaxed in our stylishly decorated villa.



The next day we were given a full orientation of the north island amenities around Rodney Bay, (the hub of tourist activity on the island). Greg discussed everything that we could possibly see and do. This allowed us to pick out which venues and attractions we wished to explore on the island tours. A cell phone was provided if we needed picking up or dropping off.



Greg‘s timing was impeccable in beating the crowds at all the venues, allowing a more personalized experience at all the attractions!



This vacation was exceptional and the experience of a lifetime, because Greg enjoys sharing his love and passion for St.Lucia, its people, and their culture! He turned out to be the best tour guide ever! We highly recommend staying at Sunwest Villas where we definitely plan to return!

What a delightful stay we had at Sun West Villa.

The accomodation was very clean and spacious.

It was very nice to have a pool to cool off in with all the floaties and deck chairs.

Fully appreciated after a full day of travel having the fridge stocked with breakfast essentials. VERY NICE!

We enjoyed the fresh fruit that was for the taking right on the property.

Having wirless internet allowed us to stay connected to work as needed. We were also given a cell phone to use for the week. We didn't need to use it, however, just another feature for added comfort and assurance.

The owner took us on a 1.5 orientation to show us the town, private beaches, Pigeon Island etc. Things that would maybe have taken us the week to discover on our own. This added huge value to our vacation.

We were very comfortable in the area, felt safe, easy to get around, plenty to do.

We enjoy the freedom of renting our own vehicle, however it was not necessary at this property. The owner would gladly shuttle you to town or the beach which is a couple of minutes away.

St Lucia is beautiful!

SunWest was a gem of lodging I would refer friends and family to.

Amazing owner and host!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sun Set Villas for 12 days. The apartment is spacious clean and comfortable and has everything you need.

The pool and garden is amazing and beautiful sunsets from our balcony. Greg the owner was the perfect host, picking us up from the airport, taking us to the supermarket, providing us with a mobile phone, so we could contact him to be dropped or picked up at no cost. He even repaired my broken sandal and took me to PC world to sort out my camera. We also booked Greg's full day tour around the Island which was great fun and a memorable one. Whenever I look at the photos taken by Greg from the sulphur springs & mud bath, it always puts a smile on my face, was such a great day!

I had a fantastic time in St Lucia, such a beautiful island with spectacular breath taking views. I would recommend it to anyone!

Thanks again Greg, you truly are an amazing person!

Immaculate villa, great host. Made holiday A1

  • 5 of 5

Our host Greg made our first venture on HomeAway a memorable and convenient one. Greg picked us up at UVF upon our arrival and drove us north to the villa. He's very knowledgable about the history, sites, roads and cities on St Lucia and proved to be a great and valuable guide on all our drives. He's a talker and a story-teller. Great entertainment LOL

When an air conditioning glitch popped up in our 2-bedroom villa Greg, without hesitation, moved us into the "Big House". Even when the A/C cycled back to its cold air cycle Greg refused to put us back in the 2-bedroom. An amazing gesture. Both accomodations are very well appointed with all the appliances you need for daily living and the views are beyond beautiful. The only fault we could find is that the Big House's main living area is not A/C'd, just the bedrooms. The wall-to-wall, Floor-to-ceiling patio doors could use curtains to minimize the afternoon sun from heating the living space. But honestly, we were usually gone by 9am and back after 5pm. We didn't spend much time at the villa.

It's a 12min walk to the marina, 15 to the grocery store and 25 to the Gros Islet Street Party. Greg was very willing to drop and pick us up any time during the day. It was only a 5min drive to several of the beaches and shopping areas.

We would certainly have no problems recommending Greg and this property to others. He made us feel like family. Thanks again Greg. Yay-YEAHHH

4 bedroom/ 4 bathroom

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay, the island the people and weather were WONDERFUL!

The accommodation was very spacious. It was a longer distance from the beach then we thought. Greg was very accommodating in running us into town/beach.

He was also very quick to take care of our requests.

One thing that everybody should be aware of is the 4th bedroom does not have a/c and is at the top of the house, which is VERY HOT!

My son age 9 said the trade off for the 4th room is the pretty view!

Blissfully beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The villa provided every amenity we required and was comfortably furnished. The pool was very welcoming at the end of the long hot days. There are plenty of loungers and other seating allowing views over the area.

Greg was an amazing and helpful host whose advice and flexibility helped to make our vacation really memorable. The orientation tour was a great introduction to the week. If you have the chance to avail yourself of Greg's services as a guide and chauffeur PLEASE do so - he seems to know everybody on the island and all the out-of-the-way places.

Thanks Greg.
