Overview

About the property

100 sq.m Creole cottage by a magnificent beach where the sun goes down.

This Creole cottage by the beach faces the Grenadine Islands. It boasts all necessary comforts in order for you to have the vacations of your dreams in the Tropics. Facing west at the Caribbean Sea, you'll be able to go from one beach to another to discover authentic Creole fishermen villages which will open your eyes to another world, and other times. After having hiked in the tropical forest and swam under a waterfall, or after having gone on a boat trip to discover magnificent coves where you’ll be able to swim, dive, and snorkel to explore an underwater paradise: you'll be happy to have a Ti punch under the veranda, looking out onto the ocean and the setting sun. And why not enjoy a recently caught lobster? Your dream is finally within your grasp! Friendly encounters will let you know that you're welcome and that we are at your service to make your stay in this island unforgettable. Noélita will welcome you, and will explain all you need to know about the cottage. She will also be there to provide any help and information you might need regarding the activities offered in the island. She will share all her secrets! If you like, she can also clean your cottage and prepare delicious Creole meals with ingredients that she gets from local markets. Fees have to be negotiated directly with her. Five kilometres away is a well-stocked supermarket. But there is nothing better than going fishing to be able to savour any breams, snappers or kingfish you might catch. If you prefer to rest and enjoy a bit of coolness, you can always have the famous local beer, Piton, and enjoy the air-conditioning as well as the fantastic fan we have for memorable siestas. Do not forget to party on Friday nights! You'll dance to the rhythm of Caribbean music. You will always find somebody to go on a picnic with to share some memorable moments at the beach and to toast to friendship. People you'll meet will tell you about the magical places to discover. Always have your swimming suit with you, you'll always find an inviting cove where you'll enjoy the relaxing sound of the water. One hour away by boat and 15 min by plane is the Island of Martinique where you'll have the option of going shopping. A tour can also be organised to visit the Grenadine Islands which you can admire from your cottage door step. But most of all, you'll also be able to... be like in a dream!

Why Bara Berechit chose St Lucia

The locals have always protected the magical environment found in the Caribbean. Most of all, Saint-Lucia is timeless. The authenticity of the island is quite special as it associates the sea, the forest and the Creole villages where welcoming inhabitants will teach you what sharing is all about. It is no accident we have chosen this island. It remained wild and beautiful but also accessible, peaceful and particularly welcoming.

What makes this house unique

The sea, the Pitons, the tropical forest and above all, its inhabitants.

I loved it!

  • 4 of 5

Our family enjoyed the house and especially the patio. Our kids were able to run freely and safely around the house perimeters. It was comfortable both inside and out. Neolita welcomed us with all her heart and made us feel at home. Her cooking was delicious. Flavien our driver was also as wonderful and took us all around the island. We truly enjoyed our stay in would visit again. The beach at the bottom of an adventurous path was nice if you are a strong swimmer but wavy for little kids. My son six long fed it but was rough for him. The neighboring beaches are very nice. St. Lucia is absolutely beautiful and we will come back again.

Nice house with an amazing private beach close by . Noelita made us some fabulous food.

  • 4 of 5

We had a lot of problems with the ferry company (La Compagnie Maritime Express des iles) which made our trip two days shorter than planned and our arrival late in the evening. Noelita waited and welcomed us at the house . The facility was cleaned and in good shape.

The house has a nice porch and a marvelous private beach within a 5 min walk.

We arranged so that the housekeeper Noelita one night came and made us some fabulous créole food for a good price.

St Lucia is a beautiful island and we really enjoyed our stay. The culture and the environment was a big change from Martinique, which made our trip fun and exciting.

The only thing to complain about is our economic losses because of the ferry dates was changed. The ferry company didn't give any refund and the same was with this house.

Good value, very private, needs a little attention

  • 3 of 5

This is a wonderful place to stay with great views & access to a very secluded beach. We were greeted by friendly staff (everyone on the island was friendly) & shown the house. They even helped us arrange a rental car from a local company that drove us to the house, showing us where everything was located along the way & gave us a good deal on the car. We had difficulty finding the beach because the path was grown over so much but they had someone come & cut the grass the next day(but I'm not sure why that had not been done before we arrived). Which brings up one of the cons. For 5 days of our 7 day stay we were woken up by someone cutting the grass for hours (with weedeater/trimmers). I also made the mistake of dropping something under the bed & found that under the beds looked as if they had never been cleaned (trash, dust, dirt, etc.). Flys were a problem but I don't think that was an issue with this house. I think it was the fact that it was mango season. The mosquito nets helped us hide from the flys at night (one or two would always try to land on you while you were sleeping). All the rooms but the bathroom have AC which was nice except that the bathroom would become fairly warm if you closed the door. We had some trouble with the toilet taking a long time to refill so I did a little checking & fixed a minor problem. The shower was ok but on 2 occasions the water pressure when to zero for over an hour (not good if you were in the middle of showering). It was the whole house so we called the staff (who always answered when we called) the second time it happened & they said it was a utility problem and would be back on shortly which it did about an hour later but because of our schedule that day we were unable to bathe. In summary, this is a very good property for the money & nothing that happened to us ruined our trip. I would stay there again. It's a very nice place that is located close to the airport & shopping but not too close that you lost seclusion & privacy.

Beyond beautiful. Perfect paradise.

  • 5 of 5

This property was exactly what we were hoping for. It is the perfect place for a quiet, relaxing holiday. The view of the ocean is amazing, also there is a short walk down a trail to get to the beach. We had it all to ourselves all week, not another soul went down there. The sand is soft, the water is lovely and there are some cute crabs. It was amazing to have a "private" beach, the sunsets were beautiful. So romantic. I was nervous booking as I had never use a site like HomeAway before but everything went smoothly. This property is accurately portrayed in the photos provided. Noelita is a treasure. She welcomed us to the house with an enormous platter of local fruit, which we enjoyed all week, along with a delicious meal that we had prearranged with her. We had her cook for us a few times during our stay. The meals were delicious and plentiful, and prepared with traditional island food. We got to try many new and tasty fruits and vegetables. The cottage was comfortable, bright and airy with a beachy feel. It had air conditioning in each room and most everything needed was provided. The deck is large with table and chairs so we could eat our meals while enjoying the view. It is in a safe area away from crowds and tourists. It really made a difference to have so much space, we didn't feel like we needed to venture out every day to enjoy the island. Sometimes we stayed home and enjoyed the property and our private beach. We rented a car and did venture out to explore the sites of the island and do some amazing scuba diving. We spent a lot of time in Soufriere about 35 minutes drive away. We found the location of the home quite ideal for our plans. The property is set back from the main road and there is no traffic noise. We really enjoyed having so much land and the beach all to ourselves to enjoy, tons better than only having a room in a crowded hotel. It made for the most relaxing, laid back vacation ever, we felt so spoiled. The property is so peaceful, romantic, quiet and beautiful it took our trip from great to absolutely incredible. I would highly recommend this property. Thanks again for the amazing experience.

FANTASTIQUE

  • 5 of 5

Pour les amoureux des Caraïbes ce lieu est absolument fantastique. Au bord d'une plage de sable irisé noir et blond sur laquelle vous êtes seul au monde, face à la mer Caraïbes et à St Vincent les Grenadines que l'on aperçoit tout au fond, les baignades sont interminables et que dire pour ceux qui aiment pêcher, c'est l'autosuffisance assurée. Des couchers de soleil à vous couper le souffle, le calme, des voûtes étoilée que l'on pensait ne plus revoir, les petits plats créoles succulents mijotés par Noélita. Que dire de ses langoustes... Et tout ceci dans un environnement créole que l'on imaginait disparu. Des gens de l'île qui vous accueillent à bras ouvert et vous êtes toujours les bienvenus. Des criques à découvrir sans fin, une végétation que seules les tropiques peuvent vous offrir, les petits villages de pêcheurs qui vous plongent dans les Caraïbes du 19ème siècle avec ses cases qui vous parle d'un passé de tant de douleur mais aussi je ne sais comment d'un espoir lié à ces habitants plein d'une foi profonde.

Une chose est certaine, je reviendrai, avec mon épouse, dans ce coin de paradis qui vous redonne une énergie insoupçonnable.
