It’s humbling and so very gratifying to get a review like this. Thank you Elizabeth for your lovely review on “Something Special St. Lucia villas”
It was lovely having you to stay and so glad I was able to help out with tips and suggestion. St. Lucians are friendly and always ready to help, as you noted with your “wonderful memory of the Saturday market in Castries”, getting help to select the perfect mango”. Thanks for sharing that, I know other guest will appreciate that aspect of your stay. The markets are just moments away.
You are the perfect guest for a Poinsettia Villa Holiday. Its really for travellers like you who want to get out and explore and have a unique experience, as you say “a feeling of being at home and being a temporary local”.
Saint Lucia has a lot to offer and I love getting to know guests to help them enjoy a personal itinerary that is just right for them, from wild and wet adventures in rain-forest and sulfur springs to elegant dinning and soulful relaxing.
TripAdvisor Review by Elizabeth
The Poinsettia Villa Apartments are really special. The staff is wonderful. Margaux helped us in so many ways–like contacting the tour company organizing our excursions to find out the pick-up times. She provided more than you might expect–a loaner local phone, for example, and the number for a good local taxi service and the fares to expect. She was always willing to provide any information I needed–like the opening times for the nearest supermarket during the New Year’s holidays.
Our villa apartment (# 2 TreeTops 2 bedroom ocean view villa ) was large, with everything we needed, with a panoramic view. It was quiet and clean, and the gardens were beautiful. I absolutely loved watching the sunset with my husband from the deck and, in the early morning from our kitchen table, seeing the ships in the shining water of the harbor.
When we traveled on excursions with visitors from cruise ships or “all-inclusive” resorts, I felt sorry for them because of all they were missing–a feeling of being at home and being a “temporary local,” as well as getting to know some wonderful St. Lucians.
Staying at a place like the Poinsettia Villa Apartments, we had twice the experience at a fraction of the cost. For example, I have a wonderful memory of the Saturday market in Castries, when a local fellow shopper helped me select a mango that would be ripe enough to eat the same day. For another example, I was able to appreciate the Vigie peninsula more after hearing Margaux’s description of the way it used to be years ago.
The apartments are very well located. Three good restaurants are very nearby; it’s easy to walk to central Castries. We took trips north to Rodney Bay and Pigeon Island and south to Soufriere. We chose the Poinsettia Villa Apartments because of the excellent reviews, and we understand why those reviews were so good–and we agree!
