Guests often search for this popular amenity
A simple & unique 3 bedroom home in a gorgeous natural setting overlooking the city of Castries, and the Caribbean sea. Big, beautiful, and surrounded by flowering plants & tropical fruit trees in one acre of lush hillside (a hot spot for bird watching!) Only 1 mile from the nearest beach, you’re unlikely to find a villa with more spectacular views. Our comfortable home sleeps six in comfort but is just as cosy for two. Get a taste of real St Lucian community life by booking a stay here.

The space
Staying at this gorgeous, wheel-chair friendly villa with probably the most stunning views on the island means that you can bring your family and friends to the best value-for-money holiday home in the entire Caribbean and you won't break the bank! And for wheel-chair users there is a ramp to the entrance, wide doors and corridors, grab-bars and easy to use showers. Many guests say that our fantastic panoramic views could have them spending their entire vacation (armed with a cocktail or three) on our spacious veranda. And for me, my husband and family, we all adore our villa Frangipani and think it is the most beautiful place in the world.
Situated on a hill, the villa attracts every cross current of cool air so there is no need for air conditioning, but each bedroom is equipped with an electric fan. The spacious master bedroom (17ft x 14ft) has a king-size bed, plus a sturdy folding single bed (for a child). There are two further double bedrooms (12ft x 12ft), one with a double bed, and the other with two single beds. There are two bathrooms, one en-suite to the master bedroom and one between the double bedrooms (showers only). There is also a wooden enclosed shower in the garden. The huge living-room (25ft x 25ft) has a breakfast bar, and is furnished with two four-seater settees, two matching armchairs and other comfortable seating, and there are pretty patterned straw mats on the stained wooden floor.
There is satellite/cable television, stereo system with radio, a telephone, and internet connection. The living-room opens out onto a magnificent veranda (15ft x 44ft) with breathtaking views all around. The veranda has a solid round pine table which seats up to 12, also a hammock, two teak loungers, and two rocking chairs for further relaxation and comfort. The kitchen comes equipped with a large American refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, oven, and all you'll need for self catering. (But if you want our splendid chef Julie to prepare your meals, all you do is ask her!). There is a spacious utility room with a washing machine, electric iron, sink and washing line. Bedclothes are changed once a week, and towels when you want them. The villa is thoroughly cleaned before you arrive, which is included in the price, mid-stay if you require it but which you pay our cleaner $EC 150.00 for

Where you’ll be

Castries City, Castries, St. Lucia

The town of Castries was where I was brought up, and the villa overlooks this exciting city. Our villa is unique! It's the only holiday home I know of on the island which is situated in a real 'Lucian' community where most of the residents happen to be very old friends or my own extended relatives. The beautiful Villa Frangipani stands amongst the homes of my lovely kinsfolk, always willing and happy to help each other and our guests. So here on holiday you not only have sunshine, sea and sand, but you get that extra buzz - a fascinating glimpse into the culture of St Lucia's wonderful people!
The villa is central to most places on the island from which you can easily travel. The island is small, 27 miles long x 15 miles wide, so nowhere is a great distance from anywhere! You travel either by public transport, or if you wish, by your own hired vehicle. It is very easy to get to the city, or to our fabulous local beach Vigie, only 5 minutes away by transport or a 20 - 30 minutes walk. The bus stop is just yards away from the villa.
Most of the neighbours have gardens where they grow fruit and vegetables, some keep a few chickens, sheep, or a goat or two. Eco-tourism here is at its friendliest - at this location you can choose the best of both worlds - sand and sea, and also a glimpse into the culture of St Lucia's most charming people.

Cheers! That's me Dylyn, with my husband Christopher. We live in London, England, and I manage the villa which is co-owned by me and other members of my family. Some of my extended St Lucian family members who reside on the island and who live nearby, look after the villa and our guests. My husband (a retired lawyer) and I (a retired PA) love travel, we adore entertaining, reading and music, and strive to be content and happy for ourselves and for our loved ones.

During your stay

My husband and I live in London, United Kingdom. My extended family members Julie and her daughter Keisha are the villa's managers, they will meet and greet and generally keep an eye on guests during their stay at the villa. Julie and Keisha conveniently live just across the road from the villa. If guests would like Julie to cook for them, they should simply ask. She comes from a long line of super cooks and her food is beyond yummy! My niece Angelique cleans the villa, she also lives within shouting distance and is available to guests during the evenings. In our small and tight-knit community you will be immersed in the warm-hearted culture of Saint Lucia, and although the neighbours are nice and helpful, they are not at all intrusive to the privacy of our guests.
