“Unforgettable Amazing Vacation in St. Lucia”
My daughter,her best friend and I had the most memorable vacation in St. Lucia A large part of it was the wonderful accommodations at SunWestVillia and our host/owner Greg. When I first talked to Greg about reservations I knew we were in for a great time. Greg is the consummate host. He listened to what we wanted to do and showed us an amazing time.It was like having your own personnel tour guide. I think we did it all...we went snorkeling & swimming to some amazing hidden beaches, zip lining the rain forest, hikes and views of the Pitons, the "Bachelor" waterfalls, volcanic mud baths (heaven on earth!!!). We were always first in line or were able to avoid the tourist crowds. We truely experienced the most of what St. Lucia has to offer .Even taking us to an out of the way Batik boutique for some unique shopping/gifts. Best of all Greg's love , knowledge and experience of the island definitely comes through and his genuine hospitality in taking care of us was very heartwarming. I think Greg became a professional photographer after taking so many pictures of the girls!!! Thanks to our good friend Greg we had a truly amazing unforgettable vacation that even a 1000+Facebook pictures could not capture it all.
“Unforgettable & Absolutely an amazing Paradise a”
This incredible adventure began when Greg picked us up at the Hewanorra (Land of the Iguana), International airport on the south side of the island.. During the one and half hour journey north to Rodney Bay and the villa, Greg provided a great deal of information while pointing out the many natural attractions along the scenic route. Greg had great knowledge and reverence for this island. The drive was absolutely spectacular, driving through lush exotic rainforests and Banana plantations. During this drive we got a whiff of Greg's great sense of humour and we connected right away. Once at the villa, we were surprised with an upgrade from the two bedroom Coyaba suite, to the combined Coyaba, adding another bedroom upstairs. The table was adorned with a beautiful arrangement of Caribbean tropical flowers which lasted for our entire 10 day stay. We had a spectacular view of the Caribbean Sea, the lush tropical garden surrounding the villa, and the beautiful swimming pool from our Coyaba deck. We felt very comfortable and relaxed in our stylishly decorated villa. .The next day we were given a full orientation of the north island amenities around Rodney Bay, (the hub of tourist activity on the island). Greg discussed everything that we could possibly see and do. This allowed us to pick out which venues and attractions we wished to explore on the island tours. A cell phone was provided if we needed picking up or dropping off. Greg's timing was impeccable in beating the crowds at all the venues, allowing a more personalized experience at all the attractions! This vacation was exceptional and the experience of a lifetime, because Greg enjoys sharing his love and passion for St.Lucia, its people, and their culture! He turned out to be the best tour guide ever! We highly recommend staying at Sunwest Villas where we definitely plan to return! Anna Khanjari- Thunder Bay, On. Franca Henry-Forest,On.

“A good start!!”
From our first email to the drive back to the airport, Greg was a super host full of stories, information and good advice:) We stayed 3 nights in the largest villa before we headed to our time share villa @ windjammer. It was a great place to begin to unwind from our travels and revist Gros islet and Rodney Bay. We enjoyed relaxing in the pool and spending time together:)) This is a great villa for those on a budget, first time visitors and large groups.
“Seriously the best holiday of my life so far...and I'm 49!”
From the minute we got off the plane at Hewanorra, Greg was brilliant. Waiting for us on arrival and giving us all the info on the different areas as we drove north to the Villa. We also decided to take Greg up on his offer of his tours. The West coast tour was probably the best and far more for your money than a tour group would have supplied. East coast wasn't as good but was still interesting. Pigeon Island was a good day, but the beach is nowhere near as good as Reduit Beach. The villa complex is not large when considering how many beds between the various villas but we were the only guests for our time so we pretty much had the pool and Greg to ourselves. The villas are very comfortable and well laid out, beautiful sea view from the Coyaba Deck, never did manage to get a good sunset though, the cloud always seemed to drop on the horizon at the wrong time. Never mind it didn't spoil our time. The location of the villa is just about the right distance from the main shopping and beach/marina area. You don't get all the hustle and bustle and noise, yet it only takes about 15-25 minutes to walk downhill all the way to the amenities (15 to marina - 25 to Reduit beach) but I'm a slow walker! Unless you are really fit, I wouldn't recommend walking back up too often though. Although we tried not to call on him too often, Greg was pretty much always available through the day if we needed picking up or dropping somewhere and we had the use of a cell phone with recommended taxi services if required. Steer clear of the market in Castries, most stalls have the same stuff and you can get the same in Rodney bay just as cheap without the hassle. Be careful if you eat in Castries, my advice...stay away from the "royal burger" if you know what I mean. Greg, thanks for everything, we all had a fantastic time and hope to return soon. We didn't get to do all we would have liked to, so even more reason to visit again.
“Ultimate relaxation for Girls Week Vacation”
Four 50-something ladies spent a super relaxing week at SunWest Villas in Rodney Bay, St. Lucia. The Villa was exactly as advertised and reviewed by other happy clients. We experienced the same knowledgeable and hospitable service from owner, Greg Skinner. The Villa is quite a long walk from downtown and the beaches especially with the heat and traffic on the roads but ali's taxi service never kept us waiting long if the owner wasn't available for a lift. We loved the beaches, nearby Pigeon Island and Smugglers Cove for snorkelling and all the fantastic restaurants. But we especially loved the morning breakfasts on the terrace and the hours spent in and around the Villa's awesome pool. Peaceful and quiet; just what we were looking for. Thanks so much for a wonderful week SunWest Villa !!
“relaxing atmosphere with a helpful host”
We enjoyed our accommodations very much. The design and layout of the villas perched on the hill was unique.Enjoyed the cold Pitons lagers from the private deck looking out over the local area with the Caribbean Sea beyond. The infiniti pool was nice and we used it alot. Greg,our host, was helpful in making us welcome and orientating us with the island. He gave us his time and at the same time, gave us the space and privacy we like.Nothing negative. Would recommend highly.
Response from the owner Thanks so much for the photos. Reminds me of seeing you at the break of dawn while the others slept, capturing that special shot. I think it only appropriate to say I have never encountered two teenagers such as yours, that were so quiet, I was unaware they were even on the property. You guys are great parents, Good Job. Respectfully, Greg
“A fantastic Caribbean holiday”
Abbiamo trascorso 3 splendide settimane tra gennaio e febbraio 2013 a Rodney Bay al SunWestVillas di Mr. Gregory Skinner. Greg è un ospite fantastico, molto gentile ed efficiente. L'alloggio è molto confortevole, con vista sulla baia ed una piscina molto bella e sempre pulita. Rodnney Bay è la zona più bella e servita di St. Lucia e le spiagge di Pigeon Island sono ottime per un buon bagno. Per qualsiasi problema si può contare su Greg. We've spent 3 splendid weeks on January/February 2013 at Rodney Bay at Mr. Gregory Skinner SunWestVillas. Greg is a fantastic host, very friendly and efficient.The accomodations are really confortable,overlooking the bay with a beautiful and always clean swimming pool. Rodney Bay is the nicest and most tourists equiped place of St. Lucia and Pigeon Island close beaches are perfect for bathing. If you have any problem you can count on Greg.

Response from the owner Greetings Carlo and Paola. Three weeks wasn't long enough for the number of adventures we shared. I loved being invited for authentic Italian cuisine "direct out of Milan", it was exquisite. Was hard to see you go, you were warm, gracious guests. All the best, Greg
Absolutely amazing!!! The aren't enough words to truly describe how wonderful this villa and island are. It honestly feels like paradise. From the moment you get off the plane feeling the tropical air to the beautiful sights you see along the drive to the villa. The eucalyptus trees were my ultimate favourite not to mention the view from the lookout point where Greg, the owner took us to admire. Upon entering the villa ,as this being our fourth consistent year there, we honestly felt like we were home. It is such a relaxed atmosphere with a view one could only dream about. Our highlight every morning was to drink our caribbean coffee on the deck daydreaming for what felt like hours. The pool is so nice to have at the villa, as most times we had it to ourselves which was very relaxing. The villa was very clean and well kept with a housekeeper/cook available upon request. It is also convieniently about two minutes by car to the grocery store and less than five to the beach. Speaking about the beach, that too is awesome and clean with no one bothering you to buy something. The restaurants in Rodney bay were out of this world and highly recommendable. The people on the island are very friendly and we always felt very safe. This is one place we truly rave about and a definite must for all to see!!!
Response from the owner Great having you back, year after year. You're family! It seems you're adventures are limitless.We will enjoy seeing you next year. Look forward to eating the homemade Italian sausage. Respect, Greg
