Something Special St. Lucia Villas

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. Coal Pot Dining, St.Lucia


TripAdvisor Review by Elizabeth

“Something Special”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

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!

Fantastic Review Video – Villa 5 HHR Animated

Thank you John V for this lovely 5 star review. We are so glad that you found Poinsettia Villas – it is always a joy having you to stay. We love that you say you will not stay anywhere else in Castries. It is indeed a unique location, so close to the city center, duty free shopping, farmers market, fish market and yet in a true sanctuary on a hilltop overlooking one of the most picturesque bays in St. Lucia.

Press Release Poinsettia New St. Lucia Villa Resort Website

poinsettia villa resort featured on newswire

This is the Press release covering the new
Poinsettia St. Lucia Villa Resort Website Launch has syndicated this to the media.
It has been picked up by over 100 broadcast outlets including
the Boston Globe, Miami Herald and Daily News etc.


Poinsettia New Website Launched

We have officially launched the new Poinsettia Villa Apartments Resort website, which we hope you will love. The new design captures the flavour of our special hilltop retreat, that is tucked away in the Vigie Cove,just moments away from the city centre, the harbour, fish market, farmers markets and the local island- hopping airport. One of the things that guests love most is feeling as if they are on the edge of a natural bird sanctuary in a tropical forest on a bay;  knowing that they are close to everything.

The website was developed by AXSES All Cast Power Marketing Consultants, who have done a great job of providing the right balance of technology and information. We will post the Press release about the “new website launched” shortly.

There are some really unique features that we are particularly pleased with:

    • 1. The full broadcast quality video. Note the messaging – we wanted to be clear that we are not a hotel room or a hotel but a self-catering villa apartment resort with all the comforts of home.


    • 2. The three buttons on the front page give immediate access to what guests most want to know – What the lifestyle holiday for independent travellers is –  accommodation options and – affordability. We are working on another video that will compare our offer to the alternatives. We know that we offer the best value and will prove it.


    • 3. The Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page has become one of the most popular pages and we are adding to it constantly. If you have a questions, just click the Contact Us button at the end of each page and we will get back to you with the answer and add it to the FAQs.


    • 4. We know that independent travellers have different needs and budgets, so we have included a page that compares and suggests alternative villa resorts and self-catering options. More will be added to help travellers make the right choice. Please contact us if you would like us to make a suggestion.  We know the island well; we live here and we love to help.


    • 5. Just in case you are not sure about staying here, we also give you a list of things that we are not. The WHY NOT US page will eliminate Poinsettia from your choice if we don’t offer what you are looking for. This happened to us once when the family of a couple booked their accommodation here, thinking that we were more of a hotel with beaches and restaurants and lots to do. We immediately offered the couple their money back, as well as to help them find a suitable place and assist them to move the next day. They fell in love with Poinsettia’s ambiance and decided to say. They had a wonderful time and the entire family was forever grateful to us for making their stay so enjoyable.


    • 6. The social buttons are there to help you share the page you are on. Just click on your favourite site, such as Facebook to share the page with your friends and let them know you found us!


    • 7. We have lots and lots of videos and images, for the resort as well as for the island in general. Some of the videos show the villa sitting areas, bedrooms and kitchen as they were before the upgrades in 2014. Since then, we have tweaked the kitchen counters, upgraded the living and bedrooms areas with more lively colours and made it more cozy and warm.



Well, I could Go on – but I’ll leave that for another time.

Please let us know what you think and what you would like to see next!

Have wonderful holiday!

Margaux Daher, Marketing Director and Co-owner.

PS >>> We plan to add a page on the story of Poinsettia and the family soon.
