Overview

Photos and Description of this Castries Quarter holiday house

3 Double Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6, Ocean & Bay View

The Stone House is one of the original buildings in Marigot Bay, a site probably chosen for its fabulous Bay view & cooling easterly breeze.

A recent renovation has created a relaxing & inspiring home with modern day comforts & artistic charm.

The front gates open into a driveway with parking for 2/3 vehicles directly outside the house. On entrance you're greeted by an open-plan living room and kitchen area, a light and uplifting social space with vaulted ceiling & hardwood flooring.

The kitchen has unique polished concrete tops with breakfast bar & stools, the sink looks out onto an ocean view making this a pleasurable area to create cocktails & feasts, a local cook is an optional extra, you'll see how the unusual local produce is cooked & experience a delicious home cooked creole meal.

The favorite spot is usually the balcony, accessed through large sliding glass doors, you're instantly captured by the view which can be enjoyed from the lounge or dining areas situated on the balcony.

The 3 double bedrooms (King size, Queen size & Standard) all have bay views & louvered glass windows allowing you to control the welcome through breeze.

All beds are hand crafted on the island and each bedroom has an individually designed en-suite bathroom.

The house is on two levels connected by a handmade wooden spiral staircase.

The King size bedroom is on the upper level, it has AC, a ceiling fan & a large fitted wardrobe.

Both the Queen size & Standard bedrooms are on the lower level divided by another lounge/recreational area, there is a small fridge & sink, allowing you to enjoy hot & cold beverages whilst relaxing downstairs. Double doors open onto an outside deck with table & chairs, it conveniently leads to the pool....great spot to enjoy your coffee/tea after a morning swim.

The classic kidney shaped swimming pool has a salt water system, its 27’x 13’in size & ranges from 4’-7’depth. An incoming waterfall creates a relaxing sound whilst the infinity edge shelf ensures the beautiful bay is still in view.

A Caribbean home just isn't complete without a BBQ, with a pool side seating area this provides another dining option, particularly enjoyable during sunset!

The house has both 220v & 110v electrical supply & ceiling fans are fitted in every room.

Solar water heating & rain water collection tanks are one of the eco-friendly features.

Free Wi-Fi throughout, cable TV, a multi-regional DVD player & sound system with large speakers inside & small speakers outside on the balcony to ensure you can listen to your favorite music via your iPod. whilst enjoying a rum punch or local Piton beer & watching the boats, birds or night lights in the picturesque bay.

About Sabina Siddiqi

I’m a designer/artist born in the UK, hence the artistic décor & unconventional finishes.

I’ve lived in St Lucia around 7 years, managing our house build then renovating The Stone House.

Living close by means I'm on hand to help, advise & recommend, it's great to meet people & enthuse in the beauty of this island through fresh eyes.

Having travelled extensively, it's always fun to hear about new places & other peoples recommendations.

I love snorkelling, wild life, nature, and the sun! These are just a few of the reasons I've stayed......it's a stunning island & Marigot Bay has an irresistible charm; it’s hard to leave & always great to be back!

Sabina Siddiqi purchased this house in 2008

Why Sabina Siddiqi chose St Lucia

Location!!! Marigot is a stunning location, it's also on the cost of the Caribbean sea, perfect to access both north & south of the island by road or by sea.

Marigot Bay has a wonderful community, a mix of residents, visitors & locals, integrating local life with international people, an interesting social environment.

I enjoy exploring, trekking through the rain forest, BBQ’s on beaches, a mud bath in the volcanic spring & adore waterfalls all of which the island has to offer.

What makes this house unique

I lived at the Stone House for 4 years whilst building another property just down the road where I now live. It's a very special home, when I spend a few days there I still find it hard to leave, especially now we've finished the renovation, it's bright, open, arty & fun.

I love unusual, natural, character places, which generally tends to be older properties. The Stone house is one of the original buildings in the bay, built from stones found on the land in 1960's, I believe they followed a Canadian chalet design, it was 2 apartments, we've now converted it into one house adding an extra bedroom with bathroom. I love the fact it has a chimney & fireplace an unusual feature that gives it character, I've now installed a built-in gas oven, which signifies our changing times. It's wonderfully solid & simple, stone walls & wood floors, the glass sliding doors & louvered glass windows are great, seeing the sea, sky & trees, feeling the breeze, all this gives me a sense of space & well being.

The pool is fab too, we've put an infinity edge shelf, so now it's so relaxing hanging on the edge watching the Bay.....perfect!

Undeniably the best spot in the house is the veranda, sitting on a lounge chair gazing down into this stunning bay, watching the boats, birds, people playing on the beach, the magical night scene with lights & music drifting up from the bay...with a cold Piton Beer...really can't be beaten, it's captivating, relaxing, therapeutic.... indescribable!

We traveled to St Lucia as two couples for a week. Stone House was perfect. The house owner is really nice and made getting settled easy. She gave great advise about where to go and terrific restaurants. Also, everything is better than you imagined. House is fully equipped and very comfortable. You will enjoy every minute. We did.

Amazing stay in Margot Bay

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in the beautiful and charming Stone House in late February/early March. The views are breath taking and the house is amazingly appointed and very comfortable. We never wanted to leave! Sabina was a fabulous host and Davie helped make us comfortable and prepared the most fantastic meal at the house. He also took us around the island and was a great tour guide! We hope to return again!

Amazing Villa!

  • 5 of 5

The Stone House villa exceeded our expectations. Six of us stayed for 10 nights and we can’t say enough about the villa and our experience. I had never rented a villa online before and was quite intimidated, to say the least, to turn over a security deposit sight unseen. But the owner, Sabina, was incredible through the whole process, responding with emails and taking the time to talk over the phone. On arrival day she arranged for a local taxi driver, Andre, to pick us up at the airport. When we arrived at the villa we were warmly met by Sabina who walked us through and shared valuable insight to restaurants, sights, etc. The villa was clean, fully furnished with an artistic flair, and within walking distance to Marigot Bay, restaurants and an ATM. The view from the balcony is amazing, one overlooking Marigot Bay and the other overlooking the Caribbean Sea where we watched the sun set every evening. Sabina also left us with a mobile phone programmed with local numbers and she was readily available for anything we needed, including even sending one of her workers to pick a couple of coconuts that grew on the property for us to try out.

Sabina also worked with me for several months to coordinate a small intimate wedding ceremony at the Stone House. She responded to every email I sent and worked tirelessly to give the bride and groom the wedding of their dreams, even letting us have professional wedding photos and a meal at her other villa, the Tea House, which she is in hopes to turn into a wedding venue.

The Stone House villa is wonderful but so is the owner. Thank you, Sabina, for being so welcoming and kind. It is a vacation we will not soon forget.

Superb

  • 5 of 5

Fully agree with all the previous reviewers. Stone House is well equipped with fantastic views over Marigot Bay. Sabina couldn't have been more helpful and providing us with a mobile phone was so useful.

The Bay has great restaurants, bars, a small supermarket, bank and ATM.

Wonderful stay !!

Perfect House!

  • 5 of 5

My group and I loved the Stone House. We booked our trip for New Years and were so happy with the home. Sabina was the sweetest host, helping us with groceries before we arrived, recommendations for things to do around the island and meals, and any other general questions we had throughout our stay.

The pictures are very accurate, the home is so unique and eccentrically decorated.

You must have Davie come to the house and cook for you he is amazing and one of the sweetest people we met on the island besides Sabina. What a great trip we had and so much of it was because if the Stone House and the great people tied to it. I hope to come back again!

Exceptional experience; amazing house with even better hosts

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had out honeymoon stay at "The Stone House." We spent a week there and could not have asked for a better stay. The view and comfort of the Stone House is phenomenal. It is a reasonable walk from the house to the Bay. There is a beach within 5 minute walk that is poorly known. Sabina and Davie were equally fantastic. They immediately addressed any questions and were more than gracious with meeting our requests. You definitely need to have Davie cook a meal or two and take you to see the Canaries water fall drive into Millet. A car is required for exploration beyond the Bay. Driving is interesting, but easily adjustable.

Stone House itself has unique and fun decor that is custom made my Sabina and Davie. Very cosy and pool is perfect addition to cool off after long day hiking or on the beach.
