Description

The Space

The north of Saint Lucia is very busy with lots to do daytime and night. But we still have the wonderful Atlantic coastline within walking distance and the apartment is surrounded by tropical plants and fruit trees.
The studio is hidden away up some steps. It’s a bit rustic with a kitchen on the balcony which faces Pigeon Island - great view. It is liked by the young and young-at-heart! It has a queen-sized bed at one end of the long narrow room. The bed has a mosquito nets and the windows have insect screens. (There is also a single bed built into an alcove suitable for a child or smaller - adult please message me if needed)

The studio is comfortable and clean and has a fridge, cooking facilities, toaster, microwave, kettle, cable TV, free wireless internet, insect screen and a powerful fan.The site is steep with quite a few steps and surrounded by nature.
We also have 2 apartments in the same building, La Panache Apartment Stunning Views and Hideaway studio and La Panache Great Studio and a holiday apartment near Soufriere, under the title Laniappe Apartment.
We are 20 minutes drive from Castries and 90 minutes from Hewanorra airport.
We have a great location, close to everything abut away from the hustle and bustle of the highway. We are part of the Cas en Bas Road community which is a mix of locals, tourists and residents with holiday homes.

There’s a small supermarket and a bank at the junction and 2 larger supermarkets on the way to Rodney Bay.

Gros Islet Beach is a 20 minutes walk, Reduit Beach a short bus ride and the Atlantic beaches a 30 minutes walk. Beausejour Cricket Ground is 2 km away, Rodney Bay Marina a 15 minutes walk.
We also have an apartment in the south called Laniappe, also listed on Airbnb.

Saint Lucia · Member since June 2012

I was born in the UK and studied Natural sciences at Cambridge before spending twenty years teaching in Papua New Guinea, Bermuda and Venezuela and roaming the world! I finally settled in Saint Lucia and have kept myself very busy with conservation and ecology and specialize in studying the flora.
I have found over 300 species not known to be here including 10 this year which shows how biodiverse the flora is in this tiny but very mountainous island - now over 1300 species of flowering plants.
I have a studio and 2 bedroom apartment renting as holiday lets so if you like natury sorts of places to stay we might be the place in the north of Saint Lucia!
