The Space

Located atop the historic mountain district of the Morne of the capital city of Castries, St. Lucia, this apartment offers breathtaking views of the Caribbean Sea nestled in a secluded area of the Seaview Estates. This place has three large bedrooms, an open kitchen with modern amenities, beautiful tiled bathrooms, and a view of the ocean and verandas atop a private garden featuring local fruits and vegetables for your delight.

The year-round sunny and warm weather will allow you to travel throughout the island whether you would like to go shopping in the main town 15 minutes away or scuba diving, horseback riding, or sailing on any of the beautiful beaches 5-15 minutes away.

The central location provides ready access to the local nightlife in the towns in the north in Gros Islet and Rodney Bay or more adventurous day-long excursions to our celebrated rain forest, unique drive-through volcano, and spectacular world heritage sites of the Pitons in the southern district of Soufriere.

Additional services such as airport pick-up and drop-off, a car rental or a private driver can be arranged accordingly. A week in advance notice is necessary for such arrangements.

  • We spent the best week at Lucina's house, it's amazing how being so far from home some people can still make you feel at home. The house has great views, plenty of space and is equipped with everything and anything you could need.

    Lucina offers a very personalized and kind service, she will answer all of your questions regarding St Lucia, so if you're looking to explore the island this is definitely the place to stay at.

    The area where is super safe and quiet with great neighbors like Ronald across the street, and it's located only 10 minutes away driving from downtown Castries, and 20 min from lovely Rodney Bay, I recommend to rent a car since the steep hills could be tricky under the Caribbean sun, and also to move around the island, Lucina has good tips to arrange a car rental.

  • Using Airbnb, and Lucina specifically, was the best choice for our visit to St. Lucia! The house was clean, comfortable, homey, and even nicer than the pictures. Lucina was the cherry on top though! Every morning she brought "gifts" of local fruits and answered any questions we had about the island, offering recommendations upon request. During our stay we "crashed" several resort beaches and got a feel for the resort life and yet each day we "came home" agreeing that Seaview House was the better option! Even after we left the island we looked back through other Airbnb homes and still felt this was the best bang for our buck. Lucina is fascinating and full of life, just the kind of host you might want when visiting an unknown country, her house was stocked with kitchen supplies and we cooked and lounged about nearly every night. If I ever get a chance to return to St. Lucia I will go back "home" to Lucina's Seaview House!

  • Lucina (email hidden) and the house was beautiful. There were 4 of us traveling and staying in the house and there was plenty of room for us all. The neighborhood that the house is in is really nice, offers amazing views of the ocean, is a short drive to the north of the island, and is close to a very tasty jerk chicken spot. Lucina took wonderful care of us, making sure we had a mobile, directions to where we we're headed. As well as should us how to cook the local breadfruit.
    I would highly recommend the Sea View estate house to anyone traveling to St Lucia. Thank you Lucina!

  • I stayed by myself for 4 nights at the Seaview House and can say without a shred of hesitation that both Lucina and her house are even far more charming than the description provides. The home is easily big enough for 3-4 people, and the ocean view from the back porch is absolutely serene - you really need to see it for yourself.

    Lucina exceeded expectations in every way, and immediately following my booking, she was a personal concierge to this fantastic island. I can assure you that she will consistently go out of her way to make sure your visit is enjoyable. This includes arranging rides to the various landmarks on the island (as well as driving you herself to nearby destinations), giving advice on what to do during your stay and connecting you to people offering various services (including scuba diving, jet skiing, catamaran trips, etc), and even running up in the wee hours of the morning to shut off the house alarm that you may have accidentally set off (whoops!). And she does all of this with a great big smile, and a wonderful sense of humor.

    In sum, if you're the type who wants to get off the beaten trail, and prefer a bit of the local flare over the sterile experience provided by all-inclusive resorts, this place is for you. Trust me, you will not be disappointed.

    Thanks so much for everything, Lucina! I hope to book again soon.

    Regards....... Lucina

  • My friend and I stayed at Seaview House for 6 days and we did not want to leave. Part of it was because of the wonderful people of St. Lucia; another reason was the view from the home. But mostly we hit pay dirt with the hospitality of Lucina Gilbert. She went above and beyond to accommodate our needs by arranging transportation to/from airport, directing us where to eat, and so much more. Staying at the Seaview house is a great way to vacation in the St. Lucia community - and did I mention the view??? You cannot beat it! The St. Lucia breezes coming through the windows and off the back deck transport you to vacation immediately. I will be back to stay soon!

  • This was our first trip to St Lucia and we could not ask (email hidden)cina was a great person to meet and so helpful helping us get around the island. We loved her home and enjoyed waking up to one of the most beautiful views of the ocean from her living/dining area! She was gracious enough to have food items out for us and even let us use a local cell phone! We would without a doubt recommend staying at Lucina's house and would stay again!

  • Wonderful experience in St. Lucia!
    Lucina's house is gorgeous, bright, clean, modern, with a fully equipped kitchen and a breathtaking sea view terrace where you can have breakfast in front of the sea or dinner with the sounds of nature. The house is at the top of the hill in Morne, in a very safe area, close to town supermarkets and shops and from there you can reach shortly beaches and attractions in the north and the south of the island.
    Lucina is a great person, kind, caring and affectionate that will help you during your holiday whatever you need. She is awesome!
    Thank you so much!
    A big hug,
    Cristian and Lucia from Italy
