Apartment in new house (2013) built to Western standards. Beautiful view of Piton mountains, rolling hills & valleys and Caribbean sea. 200 yards to quiet beach. 7-minute walk to fishing village of Choiseul. 15-minute drive to Gros Piton hiking trail.
The apartment is bright and cheery with large louvered windows that allow the strong trade winds to keep you cool.
There is one queen-sized bed and a sofa/day-bed that is the size of a single. We also have an available air mattress. So it can fit 4 if necessary, but probably better as 2 adults + 2 children rather than 4 adults.
We have solar-powered hot water, and because the sun always shines, it's always hot! Many private rentals in St. Lucia do not offer hot water.
We have one of the most reliable water supplies on the island. They don't tell you this, but many private rentals have inconsistent water due to frequent island-wide water shortages. Our house is located at the convergence of two water mains, so we almost never lose our water. And if we do, we have 2000 gallons of gravity-fed water storage as backup.
We have very fast 50Mbps wireless internet, which is very rare on the island. Netflix, iTunes and video-conferencing all work perfectly.
There are full insect screens on all windows and doors, plus optional mosquito nets.
You have full access to the apartment, the large 500 square foot patio (with outdoor shower), and the fenced yard.
Общение с гостями
For the 2017-2018 season, we have good friends, Pete & Kerry, living upstairs and taking care of the place. They'll often be around to offer help or advice.
We have 2 dogs — Amber and Waffles, who are both large mastifs. Amber is an excellent guard dog and always takes new guests under her wing. She often sleeps outside the guest suite on the patio, and never barks except when there is a person approaching the house. Waffles is much younger and takes all his queues from Amber (who is his aunt). If you don't care for dogs, just let us know and we will keep them away from your apartment.
Другие важные подробности
We have a very steep driveway, which isn't usually an issue unless your rental car has bald tires or a bad transmission (which sometimes happens!).
The stairs from the parking space to the apartment were built out of large slabs of rock, which looks awesome but is not ideal if you have mobility challenges.
No smoking anywhere on property.
No pets inside the apartment.
