Luxury poolside villa. Aircon, full kitchen, 2 bedrooms, 2 baths.
Sleeps 4 in a friendly holiday village, close to Rodney Bay + 18 hole golf.
50 yds to tranquil beach: kite surfing, beach bar. Great for families, friends and 1st or 2nd honeymoons!

The space

Villa Valerie is on the first floor, overlooking the huge adult swimming pool and shaded kids pool in an exclusive holiday village in St Lucia. One double bedroom (king size bed), and one twin bedroom (which can be made into one king bed), two bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen.
The condo has a modern, stylish look, with marble bathrooms, tasteful furniture, air-conditioning and ceiling fans. It's right by the quiet, sandy beach, with safe swimming and a colourful local beach bar.
Hire car is recommended and I can provide a useful guide to having fun in St Lucia!
The secure, gated holiday village is right next to the only 18 hole championship golf course on St Lucia. The best kite-surfing school in St Lucia is right there on Cas-en-Bas beach - Aquaholics - check out their website.
May brings the International Jazz festival, and every Friday night an unmissable street party - known as the jump-up - in the local town of Rodney Bay (10 mins by car).
You can walk the rainforest trails, go horse-riding on the beach, take a sunset cruise to view the magnificent Piton peaks, visit the Soufriere Volcano and wallow in the natural hot springs and mud baths there. Or you can island hop to nearby Martinique.
Swim, dive and snorkel in the crystal clear waters around St Lucia, or just kick back and enjoy the peace and quiet while you sip cocktails at sunset on your own private balcony.
Please note, there is a $100 US cleaning fee, plus your electricity, which is metered, so you only pay for what you use, at cost. Electricity is expensive in St Lucia at $1.08 ECD per kwh, so go easy on the aircon!

Guest access

As it's the only holiday village on the bay, guests have the beach almost to themselves. Guests can also swim in the large (olympic size 35 metre) adult pool, while there is a smaller shaded pool for toddlers.
Activities include kite surfing, kayaking, horse-riding on the beach, snorkelling. Boat trips can be arranged for sight-seeing and diving. You can also visit Martinique for the day. A highly recommended local lady offers babysitting if required.
The key for Villa Valerie is in a key safe is right by the door, code is 1902. When you get to Cotton Bay Village, the security on the gate will ask which villa you are staying in. Number 69 is straight down the main drive, passing a turning to your right, straight on until you see trees ahead and the road narrows considerably. 69 is on the upper storey in the building to your right. There are three parking spaces to your right, go round to the front of the building, up the staircase (where the railings are about to be replaced by the management as they have been badly eroded by the salt air) and 69 is the one to the left of the hallway.

When you arrive, the electricity may be switched off. If so, you'll need to go to the main power box located on the wall in the alcove to the left of the master bedroom door (straight into the living room, door on your left). Push up the big red switch at the far top right of the power board.

If you need to use the USA style power plugs, turn on the transformer (just below the big power board, the third switch on the right) but it does drain quite a lot of energy.

The cleaner took a reading of the electricity meter after the last guests (it is in a white cupboard below the spiral staircase), and will take another reading when you go.

Interaction with guests

I live in England, so my guests won't meet me at all. However Cotton Bay is a small, family-friendly holiday village and my housekeeper and the staff are very welcoming. It is gated and very secure. The key is in the key safe right by the door, code 1902.

When you get to Cotton Bay Village, the security on the gate will ask which villa you are staying in. Number 69 is straight down the main drive, passing a turning to your right, straight on until you see trees ahead and the road narrows considerably.

The cleaner took a reading of the electricity meter after the last guests (it is in a white cupboard below the spiral staicase), and when you leave, please turn the electricity off again, (leave the fridge door open) and take a photo of the meter reading. Don't worry if you forget, the cleaner will also take a reading. It's just that the resort has sometimes over-charged people and if you have a reading then they can't do that.

Do you know what time you will be checking out? My housekeeper can come and collect the cleaning fee (270 ECD) and take an electricity reading for you if I know when you're leaving. Wifi password is villa69#

Other things to note

It is very peaceful, there are no restaurants or shops at Cotton Bay, apart from a local beach restaurant, Marjories, which is not always open, especially in the evenings. So make sure you stock up on groceries before you arrive.

The location was great, just steps from a beautiful, quiet bay and nice walks. I had coffee in the lounge chairs on the beach every morning. The security team was very pleasant and always available and the locals were super. I watched them hand craft gifts my family loved. The apartment was comfortable and the large pool was very nice. The facility needs some maintenance and there are pigeons everywhere but the location made up for it. We booked boats in Rodney bay 10 minutes away and caught a blue marlin! The north end of St . Lucia is a great place to visit.

Our host was very communicative and informative on every level via email. We really appreciated how much resources she gave us to make our stay easier. Valerie's Villa ( aka Cotton Bay Villas- just in case you get lost and need to ask for help) was so beautiful, spacious and clean. Come prepared with lots of mosquito repellent because it get VERY hot at night and you'll most likely keep your windows open!!!!!!!!!My husband and I absolutely loved that the pool and beach were so close to our place. Not to mention the hospitality of the employees was great; they were also very helpful and so nice! If you have a chance give Val's villa a try!

Thank you for your kind review! I will add some more info to my guest pack about how to keep the mozzies at bay. I usually recommend sleeping with the a/c on, and the windows closed :) Thanks for your feedback - I will ask my housekeeper to get a mosquito net for those who prefer to sleep without a/c and with the windows open at night. That should do the trick!

Very nice villa 100 meterse from a beautiful Beach. It has a great common pool area that has just been renovated. The place was clean and nice. The host, Valerie, was very nice, flexible and easy to communicate with. There was no internet connection in the apartment and the common area one was not working. Just check on that if it is important to you.

We had a great stay in Valerie's place in St Lucia. Unfortunately got hit with some rain and mosquitos but had some sunny days towards the end. The location is beautiful and amazing kite surfing on the beach.

I had an absolutely relaxing time at Villa Valerie. It was exactly what I was looking for while on vacation. Valerie was always available via email to answer any issues and provided very detailed information on the check in and checkout process which made everything so seamless. The villa was spacious and provides lots of room to stretch out. Although it was just me, this can easily accommodate an entire family. The proximity to the beach made for good relaxation and peaceful walks while the pool and pool area for a laid back chill time. I will definitely book again for my trip in august.

Enjoyed a lovely - but too brief! - stay at Villa Valerie. The apartment is very nice, everything worked, the pool complex is great and just below the balcony.

I would like to start off with the fact that my experience at the resort was pretty good. A lot of pros and just a few cons. Pros are the condo was beautiful. AC units in the bedrooms, nice furniture, working appliances, and well maintained. Close access to Pigeon Island beach & Rodney Bay. Only con that was out of hosts control was the seaweed problem on the Atlantic Ocean side beach. Made the beach un-walkable and un-swimmable. Also I felt like the cleaning lady could have came at least once to tidy up the place. And also give better instructions on use of appliances; such as dishwasher & washing machine. Our lights outside of the condo was out and management never came to fix it. That made it a bit difficult to get in and out at night. I would recommend to stay there as long as those minor things are addressed.

Thank you Michael for your suggestions, I apologise again about the outside light which is now fixed - they had to wait for parts to be sent from the USA. I'll also add more instructions for the dishwasher and washing machine and as I mentioned to you, the cleaning lady is happy to come in whenever you ask, for a small fee.
