Description from the owner
Sometimes a house captures and expresses the spirit of a place so perfectly that it seems to be part of the natural landscape. Pitons Stargroves, perhaps the most unique villa in the Caribbean, is one such home. Located on a gently rolling hill near the tiny village of Morne La Croix, just a few miles from the sleepy port of Soufri√É¬®re on the southwest side of St. Lucia - a region of small fishing villages, mountains and valleys, carpeted in rain forest, which seasoned travelers often speak of nostalgically as "the way the Caribbean used to be" - the villa looks as if it had actually grown right out of Gros Piton Mountain.

What Past Guests Are Saying
We stayed for three days in June, 2012, after several days in Marigot Bay. Piton Stargrove is quite stunning. Wish we had more time to stay there -- the photos do it justice, but only partly. Our family could not understand people's complaints about the nighttime "noises". Nature is nature, and we did not even notice - certainly did not disrupt our sleep. Mosquitoes, etc were a non-issue for us. One day was noisy as the groundskeepers were at work for quite a while, but otherwise quite relaxed & secluded. David and Mary & Pious were very nice, helpful and accommodating. Mary made us a dinner that is still memorable
Two pieces of advice. Because it is so secluded, be sure to get groceries on the way there -- the taxi who led us there did not. Pious was great taking us back to town to get groceries, but it meant about hour or more, round trip, Also, we would advise bringing some reading lights/flashlights. There are many different floor levels, about one to three steps between them. It would great if David were to put s string of Leds at the step edges to see them in dim light. But meantime, bring a light and also for reading in bed.
Then wake up and enjoy the incredible views!
Best Location--House is a destination of itself
Really, this house has the best location possible---when we were boating around the island we looked up between the Pitons and there, smack dab in the middle, we saw the tower of the house sticking up above the palms on the ridge. It is an eccentric house--no walls, minimalist and organic architecture. It was a perfect rainforest experience---the insects' night music, waking up to a rainbow arced between the Pitons, the birds flying through during the day---we felt like kids in a tree-house on a hidden adventure. We were traveling with another couple---the house was perfect for 2 couples, with separate sleeping wings, bathrooms and balconies. We had other friends staying at Jalousie and anse Chastenet---they came over one night for Mary's home-cooked meal of fish and chicken---it was the best meal we had on the island, and the home's premier location and unique ambience made the night a treasured travel experience for all. The house really made St. Lucia a stand-out trip from our other Caribbean trips. Mary and Pious were great ambassadors of St. Lucia, making us feel welcome and safe---they were always there when needed but unobstrusive otherwise. We had plans to tour the island, but when we arrived at the house, we felt no need to do anything but stay there, relax and take in the view---it was the perfect getaway. Tips: rent a car, but have it delivered to the house so that you take a txi (Ben's) to and from--it's hard to find; have the driver stop at the grocery becuase once you arrive you are not going to want to leave; definitely have Mary cook for you; bring a little travel torch so that you don't have to break the rainforest spell of darkness during the night if you need to visit the WC etc. The only hesitation I would have about booking would be if there are people with mobility problems or tiny tots in your party: the home has lots of stairs and balconies. (Actually, I would not recommend St. Lucia in general to people with mobility issues--the island is very hilly, with steep, rough roads.) So, assuming you are fit and grown, I can't imagine a more perfect place to stay on St. Lucia.
