Would you love to live in a house like this, and wake to these spectacular panoramic views every morning? Well you can, if you rent this sensational 5/6 bedroom detached Villa with its own private pool, overlooking the beautiful unspoilt Marigot Bay and its marina. The architect who designed this property ensured almost every room in the property overlooks the fabulous view.
The Villa 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 en-suite with rain dance 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 mini mart. 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 manager 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.
This property is ideal for honeymooners 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.

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 call it rather unimaginatively Bay View Villa, but 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 to finish their education. 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 look after the property 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 welcome you to Bay View Villa 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 Bay View by taxi or car hire without getting lost.
Between us therefore, we will all look after you, and make sure you have a wonderful time.

Chris Beeching purchased this villa in 2005
The villa was immaculate and well laid out. Not only did we have a gorgeous view of the Marigot Bay and the Caribbean on one side but from the front entrance and upper balcony, a view of a cove and the Caribbean.
The Beeching's staff was friendly and professional. Pauline greeted us on our arrival from the airport. The maid and gardener/pool man came mid week.
The grounds were lovely.
We drove less than 5 minutes to a parking lot by the Bay where there were a number of restaurants and a few shops. On the other side of the bay easily reached by a short boat/ferry ride, there were several other restaurants, a few hikes and accommodations.
We drove to a number of areas on the island to see interesting sites including the Pitons, a botanical rain forest with mineral baths and an old fort on Pigeon Island with a nice sandy beach and good snorkeling.
Very good restaurant on Marigot Bay- Rainforest Hideaway.
Our family of four spent eight idyllic days at the Bay View Villa in Marigot Bay, St. Lucia and we have only positive comments about the experience. First of all, Chris Beechings, the owner of the villa goes above and beyond what’s expected to make sure that each guest feels comfortable, safe, and informed. From the first moment of booking, every question was answered, tips were provided, and a couple of weeks before departing on our adventure, he emailed a complete packet of suggestions for things to do, places to go, and what to see.
The villa itself is spacious, clean, and welcoming with 4 master suites, three of which are king beds, one is a queen (all with private travertine bathrooms, walk in showers with rain shower heads) plus an additional double bedroom and three more bathrooms, one with a bathtub. Stone floors, teak wood staircase, fine linens, excellent lighting-the house is built to insure a comfortable, luxurious vacation. Four couples could easily enjoy a vacation here and not feel crowded. There is also a downstairs game room with a ping pong table for those monsoon rainy days when wandering outside is not advantageous.
Verandas and balconies offer both sunrise and sunset views of Marigot Bay or the Caribbean. The great room has plenty of seating, cooling fans, a TV with DVD(which we never used once), and a high end kitchen with first class cooking utensils. WiFi is fast and works in all the rooms. The swimming pool right outside of the kitchen is a great place to cool off on those hot days and in between beach dips. Another great perk of the house is having the laundry room with two washing machines and plenty of towels and linens. Bring your own soap and toiletries.
The caretakers, Cornelius and Pauline, are extremely helpful. When we got lost driving from the airport, Pauline was able to direct us to the villa. There are very few road signs and no street addresses in St. Lucia, so it can be a bit challenging to find something without stopping to ask. You’ll be told to watch for bus stops, store emblems, big trees, etc. when directions are sought.
Marigot Bay is without a doubt the prettiest bay in the Caribbean as James Michener evidently remarked. Dr. Doolittle with Rex Harrison was shot here. We had such a wonderful time in St. Lucia. I highly recommend that you book Bay View Villa in Marigot Bay. You and your party will be delighted. Chris will make sure that you have every instruction possible. 10 Stars!
The villa was everything we had hoped for and more. It was extremely well equipped, the views were stunning and the pool was fabulous.
We loved snorkelling at Anse Cochon and Anse Castanette and Sugar Beach. We also visited the cocoa plantation which was very family friendly, followed by gorgeous Piton Waterfalls.
I would thoroughly recommend staying here.
We had a group of 8 people that stayed at the Bay View Villas in July 2016. Every one of us was thrilled with the villa. With all the room in the house to relax, eat or just enjoy the scenery outside there was never an issue with the size of our group. The wonderful dips in the pool as it was 85 and humid every day and all the boats coming and going was always very interesting to watch.
Chris and Liz do a great job with keeping in contact with you before your trip and all the tips and information they send prior to the trip is very helpful. We did not rent a car and used a taxi for 8 of us the whole week while we were there. The taxi driver was set up by Pauline the caretaker for the villa before we left so there were no issues with us having a driver to the villa when we arrived at the airport in St Lucia. The driver also stopped at the local grocery store before we got to the villa which was very helpful for our group.
When we arrived Pauline was there to greet us along with showing us around the house.
We enjoyed many excursions while we were there. We enjoyed a tour with CoSol Tours which is mainly a Cruise line tour around St. Lucia but we were able to book it as well. The tour stopped at a banana plantation, the owner of the tour’s house for a breakfast, sulfur hot springs, waterfall swimming, continued on to Soufriere, saw the Pitons, rode on a glass bottom boat to Sugar Beach where we stayed for a while to swim and relax. We also went on the gondola rainforest ride, zip-lining through the rainforest and did some hiking. Cornelius set up a Catamaran tour to Rodney Bay and lastly we went to Castries to the open market for shopping. We enjoyed meals at Doolittle’s, Chateau Mygo and Rainforest Hideaway. They were all very good.
If you are looking for adventure, relaxation, swimming and amazing views, this is the place for you!!
We were lucky enough to stay in this beautiful home for a week with friends. Wow!!! The views are beautiful, the location above Marigot Bay is perfect, and the caretaker (Cornelius) will fulfill your every need. If you have a chance, let Chef Joel and Sharon cook a meal for you at the house. You won't be sorry if you book this delightful property!
We have just returned from a fabulous holiday in St Lucia and feel wonderfully rested and restored. This was in very large part due to Bay View Villa, its position, its amenities, its cooling breeze and its wonderful peace and tranquillity. We cannot recommend it more highly.
We were met on arrival by Pauline and Cornelius, a delightful couple who showed us where everything was and were a source of knowledge for anything and everything. Marigot Bay is a delightful picturesque bay, popular with visiting yachts, and has its own picture-perfect little beach complete with palm trees, bars and restaurants. However, we enjoyed simply looking down on it from our spectacular position high above the sea, chilling peacefully beside our own large pool, glass in hand!
We loved St Lucia too, with its happy-go-lucky, chilled out style and heavenly temperatures. Even the regular showers didn’t interfere with anything for long, simply cooling things down momentarily and keeping the island green and lush.
We used our hire car to do some exploring around the island, but most frequently went north to Castries and Rodney Bay, enjoying the many excellent restaurants (for which Cornelius was a great source of recommendations.)
There are many, many boat trips available but we enjoyed the luxury of a personal hire with Cornelius, who is a skilled boatsman and who took us on 2 trips, the first (a half day) when he took us snorkelling (our first time!) and provided us with all the equipment and tuition, which was brilliant. The second trip was a full day including snorkelling, lunch in Soufriere, more snorkelling and of course a private guided tour of all the bays and beaches stopping wherever we wanted, along the way. Perfection - and all at a very reasonable price.
So, all in all, a great success – but the star of the show was Bay View Villa - and we loved it so much that we are already booked in to return next year - for our third honeymoon!
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.
