Overview

About the property

Welcome To "Villa Bo Lanme" Family Accommodation With 6 Beds And A Games Room

Would you love to live in a house like this, and wake up to these spectacular panoramic views every morning? Well you can, if you rent this sensational 6 bedroom detached Villa with its own private pool, overlooking the beautiful unspoilt Marigot Bay and its marina. The architect who designed "Villa Bo Lanme," which means “home by the sea” in Creole, ensured almost every room in the property overlooks the fabulous view.

"Villa Bo Lanme" (formerly Bay View Villa ownership unchanged), enjoys year round cool breezes, but on still days, there are ceiling fans throughout and air conditioning in all the bedrooms.

There is a vast open plan living area with cool marble floors, including an exceptionally well equipped kitchen, dining and sitting areas, which are furnished to seat up to 12 people. There are 5 spacious double bedrooms, 4 ensuite with raindance showers, and a separate bathroom serves the 5th double bedroom, and the two double sofa beds in the Games room.

The Games room will be a hit with the young at heart who can play X box, table tennis, snooker or table football, whilst the less energetic enjoy the outdoor living experience around the pool. Later the youngsters can retire to the TV or play videos, whilst the adults finish off their evening meal in peace on the veranda, overlooking the bay and the spectacular sunset.

During the day you can stay local. Start with breakfast at the French bakery. Wander round the marina looking at the millionaire yachts. Restock with items from the local shops, banks and minimart. Call in at the office and arrange scuba diving, fishing, sailing, whale watching or a water taxi trip. Relax on the sandy spit, snorkel the reef or perhaps hire a pedalo. Return later to enjoy a meal at a local restaurant or a drink at the bar, watch the sun go down and swop stories with the sailing fraternity.

Alternatively there is a wealth of activities and places to see all over the island, which the local managers will discuss with you on arrival, always knowing that your stunning villa awaits your return at the end of the day, when you can cool off with a swim and a drink, whilst you decide what to do with your evening ahead.

"Villa Bo Lanme" is ideal for honeymooners or couples who want time and space to themselves in privacy, wedding parties, family reunions, business conventions or simply 2 or 3 families wishing to holiday together. Whoever you are, this is somewhere where you can enjoy yourselves without being worried about disturbing the neighbours.

About Chris Beeching

Hello, our names are Chris and Liz.

We had a dream to take our young family and live on a Caribbean Island. I was a house builder in the UK, and Liz was a lawyer, so it seemed logical to spend some of our time building what is now our holiday home. We now call it “Villa Bo Lanme” (formerly Bay View Villa ownership unchanged), which means “home by the sea” in Creole, and when you look at the view, you will see why.

In the early years the children attended a local school, but as they grew older, we knew we would have to come back to the UK. We get back there as often as we can in the school holidays, as the children still love it, but as we cannot be there all the time now, our beautiful home awaits you to come and enjoy it in the same way as we do.

We have been lucky to accumulate a number of properties in the UK which we rent out, so we are well versed in the practice. We are also very fortunate to have Pauline and Cornelius to help look after “Villa Bo Lanme” in our absence. Before they met, Cornelius skippered Charter Yachts all over the world for 30 years, and Pauline was a qualified fitness instructor. Between them they speak English, French, Italian, Spanish and a little German. They live and work in the Bay with their two children, and amongst other things, they manage several other properties, so they are never far away if you need them. They are extremely well organised and professional. They will be there to welcome you on your arrival, show you how the house works, talk to you about things to do and places to see, and attend to any maintenance issues should they occur.

Meanwhile we will give you lots of information before you go, and make sure you get to “Villa Bo Lanme” by taxi or car hire without getting lost.

Between us we will all look after you, and make sure you have a wonderful time.

Excellent Villa with an Exceptional Vantage Point

  • 5 of 5

The property is situated beautifully above Marigot Bay - the perfect location from which to do nothing, if you choose, and just enjoy an incredible view from almost any location in the villa. The villa itself is tasteful in design and function. I don't think the pictures on the websites give it proper credit. The beiges and whites contribute to a peaceful and relaxed setting, and the whitewash look on the exposed beams is inspired. And it's hard to put into words just how wonderful it feels to lay at night with a cooling Caribbean breeze freely circulating throughout the bedroom. Air conditioning is available but unnecessary. The beds are firm, which I like. Every appliance is in good working order and the kitchen and cupboards are well furnished with everything you need. This villa also offers a game room, which was a hit with our group of mostly young adults.

Marigot Bay is an excellent location from where to explore St Lucia, but the villa itself is the best place to be. Our most fun was at a small inlet to the south of Marigot Bay and only a short walk from the villa. We had our own beach and BBQ, very good snorkeling, and - for the adventurous - the opportunity to cliff dive from a large rock formation extending over the water. Incredible fun and memories for a lifetime.

One last item worth mentioning. The villa owner and his caretakers for the property are absolutely accommodating and invested in making your stay as enjoyable and carefree as possible.

Pristine Property - Trip of a Lifetime

  • 5 of 5

I always like to stay in a private residence versus a hotel as the privacy is something I really enjoy. This was by far the best I have ever stayed in. Everything about this home is impeccable. There was not a spot of dust anywhere (and this is a very large home), they had every cooking utensil you would ever need, top of the line appliances, and the finishes in the home are top of the line. You can tell that a lot of thought was put into designing this home. They have porches on 3 sides and no matter where you sit, there is a breathtaking view. Myself and one other person stayed here and while there of course was enough room, I think with 12 others we wouldn't be on top of each other. The pool was very clean and large to accommodate a large party also. There is also enough seating not only inside, but also outside to handle 12 or more so everyone can be together. There are 3 very large suites and en suite bathrooms that are very roomy and very well done. In addition, there are 2 additional bedrooms that are also a nice size. Chris is very responsive to any questions and makes sure that you have all the information you would ever need. We were a little weary of renting a car, but he assured us it wasn't as bad as it sounds to drive there. It took a little while getting used to driving on the other side of the road, but very glad we ended up renting a car. We got to see a lot of the island that we otherwise wouldn't have seen and got to meet a lot of the local residents. Also, while you are there, you will have support from individuals that live there that are happy to answer any questions. I look forward to returning with my family in the next year.

Spacious villa with amazing view looking down over Marigot Bay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay on St. Lucia.....what a beautiful island with lots of friendly people. I don't think we could have picked a nicer place to stay. We have stayed at numerous VRBO rentals over the years and this by far was our favorite. Your location on top of the hill is amazing with that view looking over Marigot Bay! Chris did an excellent job communicating with us prior to our visit and supplying us with information regarding our trip. The outdoor space at your villa is great....we enjoyed coffee in the morning out on the deck watching the sailboats go in and out of the bay. Also appreciated the amount of seating/chairs that you have out there on the deck and by the pool. All accommodations were perfect.

We stopped at the Massey grocery store multiple times throughout the week. That was relatively close to the house and worked out very nicely. The black binder book with info was a nice resource for phone numbers....we called down to Chateau Mayo and ordered some pizzas for carry out one night.

One day we hired Cornelius to take us down to the Pitons with his water taxi. The climb up the Piton definitely was a cardio workout!! We can cross that off the bucket list....one of those things you do once, but not again.

We hardly used the air conditioners at all. We found that opening the windows let plenty of breeze into the house and cooled it down. Fans were an added bonus. We ate at the Chateau Mayo (short walk or drive from the villa) two or three times and the food was excellent each time.....our favorite spot!! They have an great happy hour as well.

Thanks again for sharing your villa with us. We enjoyed ourselves very much!! We hope to make it back again some day!

Just lived a dream here and still smiling!

  • 5 of 5

Did you ever have a dream of being in a paradise? Well you will surely find a piece of it if you stay at Bay View Villa in Marigot Bay! I’ve just returned from 12 days celebrating a milestone birthday and retirement with 10 family members and friends (ages 16-70) sharing this very spacious, luxurious, clean, safe, comfortable and extremely functional villa. For all of the reviews that have raved about the spectacular and eye-catching views that come with this property from all sides, all I can say is DITTO! And yes, the pool is sensational, along with the fresh tropical breezes while on the balcony overlooking the enchantment of the bay. During our stay we enjoyed a perfect blend of relaxing at the villawhere everyone was free to read, swim, converse, take in the views or whatever one felt like doing , as well as touring about the island from Soufriere to see the Pitons and waterfall, to shopping in the Castries market, to some beach time in Rodney Bay. Marigot Bay itself also had much to offer including some very good restaurants with gorgeous sunset views while dining by the sea, ferry rides over to the beach, and strolls along the boardwalk to admire some impressive water vessels. We did not rent a car but used the services of a regular taxi driver which worked well with our larger group, and our driver Moses could

always be counted upon with our pre-arranged times. From the point of inquiry about this vacation property, Chris was very professional and a pleasure to deal with and quick to communicate information, and all of Chris’s staff at the villa offered excellent service. Pauline and Cornelius are lovely people and took great care of all our needs including our first day food provisions since we arrived on a Sunday when grocery stores were closed. And the full day water taxi outing with Cornelius is not to be missed. Gail and Vitalis who provide the

cleaning services and pool and garden upkeep are very hard workers and wonderful people. If you were to ask if I would stay here again, my answer would be yes, in a heartbeat, and I very much hope I can plan to stay at Bay View Villa and continue the dream one day. I am so happy I found this place. It was perfect in every way for all of us. You will not be disappointed if you rent this property… the pictures do not lie and it is a 5 star property without a doubt!

Best Place to Stay in St Lucia

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend staying In Marigot Bay and this house was absolutely stunning. The views of the Bay were outstanding. The house is better looking and bigger than it appears in the photos. Plenty of room for everyone and well stocked. The owner provided lots of information that made planning easy and fun. Pauline and Cornelius, the property managers, went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable and responding promptly to all inquiries. We did rent a car while we were here, but I will note signage is sorely lacking on St Lucia so be prepared to ask for directions. I did purchase the map that was recommended and this was helpful. The locals were all very courteous and willing to assist us in our travels.

Wonderful Villa_Book this Property

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 5 Adults & 1 Child for a 2 week stay at the Bay View Villa in Marigot Bay, St. Lucia. This was our first trip to St. Lucia and we were not disappointed.

First of all, Chris Beechings, the owner of the villa goes above and beyond from the start of the rental process. He gives you a very clear understanding of Bay View and what to expect in the area. He was very informative from Start to Finish, he has wonderful information about the Island, Tours and what to do and where to go as well as a complete inventory of the house. His management staff is top notch, we meet Pauline upon our arrival and she did a very excessive walk through to ensure any or all questions were answered. Pauline was excellent to work with, she suggested a great place for our first nights dinner in Marigot Bay as well as setting up transportation to Castries for a market run for fresh provisions the next morning.

The villa itself is spacious, clean, very functional for a group of any size. There are 3 King Bedroom, and 2 Queen bedrooms all very similar layouts, Great in suite tile bathroom/showers and more than enough room, comfortable beds. Each room has a balcony to sit and enjoy the wonderful views of the Bay. The layout of the house is perfect and plenty of space to find a place to be alone if you like. There is also a downstairs game room with a ping pong table for those rainy days, or when you do not feel like being out side.

The Views are incredible on both sides of the Villa, Sunsets every night on the Front upper Balcony and all day views of the bay from the back side of the house. When we were there in February of 2017 some days he winds were so strong but with all the space at the Villa we were still able to enjoy the patio and not get blown away. We did not turn on the AC, cause you really do not need it with the wonderful breezes at the Villa.

We were able to book a tour to the Pitons with Cornelius and he was so informative about the area, history and set us up at a great restaurant for lunch, I would highly recommend using the staff to assist you in Tours...you will not be disappointed. We also used the driver Moses for a couple day trips and again very informative and accommodating...you will be very well taken care of.

I highly recommend that you book Bay View Villa in Marigot Bay. You will be taken care of from Start to finish and nothing is left to the unknown.This is a top notch Villa and worth the price....do not hesitate to book.

Car: recommended

Marigot Bay has been described as one of the most beautiful bays in the Caribbean. It is visited by yachts everyday because of its safe anchorage and well equipped marina, along with its shops restaurants and bars.

The marina has provided many jobs for the locals who therefore appreciate the value of tourists. In the evenings locals, tourists and ex-pats can be found everywhere enjoying each others company, which makes for a happy and safe environment.

Marigot Bay is a perfect mix of unspoilt beauty and quality development. There is plenty of parking, and the roads are quiet. There is a taxi rank, and the buses run from the main road. It is recommended to hire a car for a few days of your holiday at least, to give you the freedom to explore and enjoy this wonderful island.

Full directions and information regarding car hire and taxis will be given at the time of booking.
