With my 20 years of experience in short term lettings and property management, I feel I am ideally qualified to make your stay in our holiday home in St Lucia relaxed
and comfortable. Many of my guests have returned regularly over the years giving me the assurance that I give an efficient, professional and friendly service.
Anneke D'Arcy purchased this cottage in 2006
My daughter and I visited friends in several parts of the Caribbean and when we
arrived on our first visit to St Lucia, we fell head over heals in love with the beauty of this tropical island, the warmth and welcoming reception we received from the islanders so we did not hesitate to return for a longer visit the following year. It was only natural to then during our second visit to St Lucia purchase this 'small but perfectly formed' cottage which we named D'Arcy and we have never looked back!

We refurbished this house to a comfortable high standard without it losing
its Caribbean character.
We also enjoyed your excellent company and stay in our home in St Lucia and very much look forward to seeing you again same time next year! Best wishes, Anneke and Gina
Stunning Island, Stunning Location, Wonderful villa.
It was everything I expected and more, set in the Cap Estate. It is perfect for the most relaxing holiday of your life.
I will go back to St. Lucia and I will most certainly stay at villa Darcy.
A charming old Caribbean cottage situated in the middle of the Cap Estate near Rodney Bay. Villa D’Arcy retains the open feel of a traditional island home but has been thoughtfully updated with AC in the downstairs bedrooms – which was a relief during our stay, because it was unseasonably hot for September (38C, 100F). This is good news for off-season visitors and less rain means less mosquitoes.
We were greeted by Marietta who is an absolute treasure. She kept the place spotless during our stay, cooked us some great Creole meals, provided fresh mangoes and banana muffins for breakfast, peeled some fresh aloe and put it in the fridge for our sunburn. We really did not want to come home.
We rented a car and would recommend you do the same. The roads are very easy to drive on but can be a bit agricultural in places, so look out for pot holes. The drive from Hewanorra Airport takes about an hour and 15 minutes and you get a good look at the various parts of the island on the way.
Rodney Bay is about a 7-minute drive from the cottage and has everything you need, three supermarkets that all sell familiar brands and great local produce. The restaurants in the marina are also well worth a visit there’s ‘Cafe Ole’ for lunch, great Sushi at ‘Rituals’ and the ‘Bread Basket’ does a great Roti (lots of locals enjoying it too). The fine dining at ‘The Cliff’ (at Cap Maison) and ‘TAO’ (at the LeSport BodyHoliday Resort) were both highlights.
A great holiday in peaceful location, batteries fully recharged.
We enjoyed a wonderful week in this small but beautiful cottage. The location was great, we particularly enjoyed Smugglers cove beach, The Grill and Naked Fisherman at Cap Maison. Marietta the housekeeper was excellent, the cottage was kept extremely clean and she made us a delicious fish dinner one evening. I would have no hesitation in booking this cottage again.
This was my 2nd visit to St Lucia and this time I chose this lovely self catering cottage. With a rented car I had much more freedom to explore the island then during my previous trip when I stayed in a hotel. Also I enjoyed shopping at local shops and trying local food.
The cottage is well maintained, tastefully decorated and has a small swimming pool. Air conditioning in the comfortable bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms. Maidservice means that there is no cleaning to do and a welcome meal upon arrival.
The living room continuous on to a large veranda with an amazing view.
We visited a number of beautiful beaches, but the highlight of the week was for me climbing the Piton mountain! A great challenge followed by a bath in the sulphur pool to ease the sore muscles. Lunch at the famous Hotel Chocolat restaurant was great after the climb. All dishes containing chocolate but not sweet.
The owner provided good customer service and answered all my questions before booking
I certainly recommend this property where I felt very comfortable and at home.
We truly enjoyed our stay at Villa D'Arcy. St. Lucia is a very picturesque island, and the villa made it even more special. The views are so nice and the setting is so tranquil. It is very private, quiet and peaceful. A perfect place to escape. The pool is a nice bonus. It very much added to the relaxing experience.
The villa is well appointed and we quite liked the decor. It was very clean and comfortable. We had the doors to the patio open everyday, adding to the ambiance. The kitchen is well appointed and made making the odd meal enjoyable. We felt quite at home. And Marietta is wonderful. We truly enjoyed getting to know her and appreciated her hard work and cooking!
We have told many people about the place and hope to return again ourselves.
What a relaxing time in St Lucia. Villa D'Arcy was a wonderful place to stay for our 3 weeks - a lovely pool to relax in after a hot day touring the island and 1st class rooms too. It's ideally located with a view across Cap Estate to the ocean.
Just a short distance away are stunning beaches and a popular Rodney Bay with lovely shops and restaurants. There's so much to do on the island from snorkelling to rain forest tours, boating, wind surfing and much much more.
We can't wait to some back to Villa D'Arcy :)
Stunning and romantic cottage at Cap Estate overlooking the fairways and greens of the 18 hole championship golf & country club and the Caribbean sea. The cottage is superbly located to take advantage of all the beautiful attractions the north of the island has to offer. Only 7 minutes drive from Rodney Bay where you can find the best restaurants, bars and nightlife as well as the Caribbean sea beaches from Le Sport to Pigeon Point and the beach along the Atlantic Ocean at Cotton Bay, known by locals as Cas en Bas.
