“True Paradise”

Reviewed 12 Dec 2013

We stayed in Nature's Paradise in June 2013. Their property has spectacular views on top of the mountain so if you are looking for a quiet place to relax this is perfect place for you. The views from the pool are breathtaking. Wanda and David are amazing and happy to share with the guests the best the island has to offer - the best restaurants, beaches, rainforest trips - whatever you need they will help to arrange it or direct you. They are wonderful, very intelligent hosts and Wanda's homemade breads are delicious for breakfast which she serves with excellent coffee. The tropical garden they created throughout the ten years they own the property is simply amazing! We've never seen such a garden full of so many different tropical plants so beautifully landscaped with breathtaking views from each side of the garden. Simply paradise! We will return. The best food on the island is at "Orlando's" prepared by world's known chef Orlando who's every dish is a masterpiece that simply melts in your mouth.

“Perfect Way to Spend our Honeymoon!”

Reviewed 6 Dec 2013

We loved everything about our trip! We wanted adventure - not pampering - and a place that was off the beaten path. We found it! David and Wanda were wonderful hosts and Marigot Bay was the perfect spot for us. We had plenty of high adventure moments: sailing, hiking, ziplining, and plenty of relaxing ones: hanging on the beach, drinking wine on our balcony, visiting with David and Wanda over breakfast and dinner. All were incredible memories that will never forget! We have already decided that we must go back and, when we do, we will certainly stay with them again.

“A wonderful and amazing experience”

Reviewed 5 Dec 2013

David and Wanda are very accommodating, gracious hosts. Our week's stay was great from day one to the last. We stayed in the cozy room in the main house for two nights and switched to the cabin shown in the photo. The cabin is spacious, tastefully decorated. We loved the canopy bed and large shower. It was nice having a kitchen with all the amenities. The service was excellent, as evidenced by the seamless move from the room to the cabin. We didn't have to lift a finger. We went on a day's excursion and found all our things neatly placed in the cabin. The pool is great - with an amazing view to boot. We thoroughly enjoyed breakfast featuring Wanda's tasty homemade bread and a variety of fruit David provided every morning. David has a wealth of information and expertise about the island and how to best enjoy it. He provided us with great service, facilitated a rental car and had the best advice on how to pass the time prior to our departure! As for activities, we highly recommend the day cruise - share it with another couple to reduce the cost, but it is worth every penny (Caribbean or us)! Marigot Bay is idyllic and has a number of great restaurants, so you need not go far to enjoy a wonderful meal at reasonable prices. We found our week's stay to be an adventure and yet very relaxing. David and Wanda have made Nature's Paradise a great location from where to begin a day's excursion around the island and so enjoyable to return to at the end of the day, or simply stay there for the day. David and Wanda are great people and we looked forward to our conversations during breakfast. We plan to return to St. Lucia soon and would not consider staying anywhere else! Kathie & Ron.

“Paradise”

Reviewed 5 Dec 2013

This little cottage over looking the Caribbean Sea is on our list of favorite places that we've ever stayed. The breezes that sweep up form the water, the tree frogs singing at night, the meandering gardens, the cats lazing in the sun, swimming in the pool at dusk...I could go on. The Wallace's were perfect hosts and the property could not have been more beautiful and restful. We hope to go back again and again!

“Beautiful, private and great service”

Reviewed 4 Dec 2013

My husband and I stayed at Nature's Paradise for a "babymoon" while I was 6 months pregnant. David and Wanda were wonderful hosts, the cottage was the perfect size and it was great to have our own private porch. The grounds of the property are beautiful and lush. Getting to and from the location does require driving up a steep and bumpy road, but that seems to be par for the course in St. Lucia and not specific to Nature's Paradise. Marigot Bay is a nice low key town with a few nice restaurants and David and Wanda know the area well and they gave us great recommendations of where to go. We rented a mini SUV and I would strongly recommend doing this so you can explore St. Lucia on your own. I would recommend Nature's Paradise and St. Lucia to travelers who are adventurous and like to explore on their own. We did take one of David's tours (the botanical gardens and hot springs) early in our trip and it was nice to get a lay of the land from David before we went out on our own.

“Nature's Paradise says it all!”

Reviewed 1 Dec 2013

We enjoyed an amazing time at Nature's Paradise! The view from our cabin was incredible, as we would sit back and enjoy the beautiful color of the Caribbean Sea along with watching the sail boats arrive or depart from the harbour. David and Wanda do a very good job of looking after the little things that make the difference between a good vacation or great vacation. We were glad that we had booked David for a personal tour of the island as he is also an excellent tour guide. The breakfast times were personalised with Wanda's oven fresh muffins and bread each morning. The reason for the beauty is that you are quite high up the mountain side, which is also is the cause for the reason that some people may not like the location since it was a bumpy ride on a mountain road to and from town or a 1/2 hour walk which is unlit at night for part of the way. For us it was well worth the bumpy road however you should be aware of this before arriving. Thanks again David and Wanda for a great time.

“An amazing place to stay and wonderful hosts”

Reviewed 25 Nov 2013

This is a brilliant place to stay if you like being a little off the beaten track and independent. It was very quiet and well away from the main tourist areas, and a great base from which to explore the island. The cottage was comfortable and private, and we thoroughly enjoyed breakfast up at the main house, a chance to share stories with other guests.

“A True Paradise in St. Lucia!”

Reviewed 18 Jan 2013

My husband and I went to St. Lucia for the first time over Christmas and spent weeks researching places to stay. We were looking for an intimate, boutique property with an incredible view and we found all that - and much more - at Nature's Paradise! The owners, David and Wanda, could not have been more helpful or hospitable. From the moment we arrived to St. Lucia, where a driver David had arranged was waiting to pick us up (on Christmas Day no less!), we felt completely at home. If you are looking for a large, all-inclusive resort with tons of amenities and no interaction with the locals, then please stay at Sandals...there's three of them on the Island! However, if what you are looking for is a unique, one-of-a-kind experience on the beautiful island of St. Lucia, then I can't recommend Nature's Paradise highly enough. The property is surrounded by beautiful, lush foliage providing privacy and a true tropical feel. From the pool, you have a breathtaking view overlooking the Caribbean Sea and my husband enjoyed swimming a few laps here every morning. Breakfast is served promptly at 8 a.m. each weekday and we thoroughly enjoyed the spread of fresh, local fruit (papayas, pineapple and grapefruit, oh my!) cheese, coffee, tea and homemade bread baked by Wanda. It was a perfect way to start each day in St. Lucia and we valued spending this time with David and Wanda and the two or three other couples who were staying at Nature's Paradise (there's only four guest rooms on the entire property). We would all swap stories from the previous day and share recommendations for tours and activities we enjoyed. After breakfast, my husband and I would head out on a different adventure (many either recommended or coordinated directly by David). From ziplining in the rainforest to sailing and snorkeling to hiking Gros Piton, St. Lucia has so much to offer and Nature's Paradise is the best place to experience it all!

“Our charming cottage was scenic, private and a true escape in pa”

Reviewed 8 Jan 2013

Because the cottages are so popular in winter, we stayed in a B&B; room waiting for our cottage. Both were clean, comfortable and supplied with all the needed amenities. We did most of our own cooking and managed well. My landscape architect husband appreciated the magnificent tropical landscape that Wanda installed. We particularly enjoyed the tropical breakfasts on the veranda where we met the other guests and relaxing by the pool and waterfall with a glass of wine and the awesome sunsets at the end of the day or when we weren't off exploring. Although the location is remote (and a challenge to find the first time), it is centrally located and accessible to other offerings on St Lucia. Dave and Wanda are knowledgeable and delightful hosts, sharing their stateside past and adventures on the island. They either recommend spots to explore or lead island tours to their secret places. The native staff were also friendly and helpful. If you hate the fast pace and busyness of a huge resort, we recommend Nature's Paradise as an ideal, off-the-beaten path, relaxing alternative for a St Lucia vacation.

“A most pleasurable vacation experience with wonderful memories”

Reviewed 4 Feb 2012

We rented the avacado Cottage at Nature's Paradise on Marigot Bay in St.Lucia in January of this year (2012). A quiet respite surrounded by nature overlooking the Carribean Sea was a wonderful vacation home base. David and Wanda are most gracious hosts who are keenly interested in your well being and comfort. As a car is necessary to vacation in St. Lucia, David and Wanda are very generous with their time and expert advice to help you get the most enjoyment from your vacation time. I cannot recommend it highly enough to anyone who wants a unique location on a most beautiful tropical island. Be sure to take David's jungle tour. Wanda's muffins alone are worth the trip.
