Why it's a great place to stay:

"This is a rare gem. The home is beautiful and setting very private. View is stunning. Since the home is located so high on the ridge between the Piton's, there is a cooling breeze that makes air-conditioning completely unnecessary. The staff is very thoughtful when needed and also respect privacy when not needed. This location also provided quick access to the many natural experiences available on the southwest site of St. Lucia." - Guest Review
