Damage and incidentals
You will be responsible for any damage to the rental property that is caused by you or your party during your stay.
Not just a sea view - our spectacular, panoramic views will knock your socks off! We overlook the city and surrounding hills, harbour mouth, beach, small airport, the Vigie peninsula, several bays and inlets forged by the Caribbean sea, and there's the island of Martinique whilst doing the washing up! Situated in the heart of a semi-rural neighbourhood, members of the community are mostly related and have a sense of responsibility to each other. This caring hospitality is extended to Frangipani guests but there is no intrusion on privacy. Far from the madding crowd but within easy reach of restaurants, clubs and shopping, the villa is just 1 mile to the centre of town, also 1 mile to the local beach - a 20-30 minute walk if you're reasonably fit, or a very short transport journey through the most picturesque landscapes of eastern Castries. Not absolutely necessary to hire a car, little 12-seater public transport buses are loads of fun and the bus stop is just yards from the villa.
Other Activities: helicopter sight-seeing
Golf: St. Lucia Golf & Country Club is about 5 miles from the villa Frangipani. It is open all the year round and features the only 18-hole golf course on the island. Located on Cap Estate, this course is set in green rolling hills with a stunning panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean and the sapphire waters of the Caribbean sea.

About Dylyn Riley Dalton
Cheers! That's me Dylyn, in the picture. I manage the villa which is co-owned by me and other members of my family. Some extended family members who live in St Lucia look after the villa and our guests. My husband (a retired lawyer) and I (retired PA) reside in London, United Kingdom. I love travel, adore entertaining, and strive to be content and happy for myself and for my loved ones.

Why Dylyn Riley Dalton chose Castries
Because the town of Castries was where I was brought up and the villa overlooks this exciting city. Also, the villa is unique! It's the only holiday home I know of on the island, situated in a real St Lucian community where most of the residents happen to be old friends and tight-knit extended relatives. The beautiful Villa Frangipani stands amongst the homes of my lovely kinsfolk, always willing and happy to help each other and our guests. So here on holiday you not only have sun, sea and sand, but you get that extra buzz - a fascinating glimpse into the culture of St Lucia's wonderful people!
What makes this Villa unique
Staying at this gorgeous, wheel-chair friendly villa with probably the most stunning views on the island means that you can bring your family and friends to the best value-for-money holiday home in the entire Caribbean and you won't break the bank! And for wheel-chair users there is a ramp to the entrance, wide doors and corridors, grab-bars and easy to use showers. The villa is central to most places on the island from which you can easily travel to all other destinations either by public transport or by your own hired vehicle. Many guests say that our fantastic panoramic views could have them spending their entire vacation (armed with a cocktail or three) on our spacious veranda. And for me, my husband and family, we all adore our villa Frangipani and think it is the most beautiful place in the world.
