“Good living in Rodney Bay”
I just returned from vacationing in st. lucia with 4 friends (30 somethings) and we all stayed at Sunwest Villa. Our host (Villa owner) Greg Skinner was great. When you arrive he picks you up at the airport and gives you a brief tour of the island as you drive 1.5 hours home to the hotel. The next morning he also gives you an orientation of the island and tells you more about all the local sites. The house itself was well equipped with comfy beds, AC, cable, and pretty much anything else you would need. There's also an infinitiy edge pool that was found to lounge in after a long day. Overall we all had fun and greg was a great host!
“The pictures don't do this place justice!!”
I stayed in the Grand Coyoba with a group of 6 adults aging from late twenties to late thirties in January 2014. We did a similar vacation last year in Barbados at a villa rental. The convenience factor and beauty of this Villa was great! The house is amazing, the pictures don't do it justice. The pool was refreshing after a long day in the sun, and the view/sunsets are a great night cap. The walk down to the Marina and Rodney Bay were not an issue for us, and we did it every day. The way up there are a few short jonts uphill, but it was very manageable for our group. Greg was also great in that he took half our group (the guys) kitesurfing at Cas en Bas, while taking the other half (the girls) to the beach of their choice on the north end of the island. This additional perk of the villa makes it very worth your while. I'll be the first to state that coordinating a group of 6 to align on what to do each day is a challenge, and if you are relying on Greg to be your caddy you need to do this so he can plan - but Greg is always on time and very accomodating. He even took us on sight seeing tour on the way to and from the airport, so I was able to see the other kiting spot and appreciate the beauty of the island. I highly recommend staying at this Villa, and don't think you can go wrong staying at Sun West.
Having traveled to many other Caribbean destinations in the past, I was looking for somewhere new to go as this vacation was a surprise for my wife's 40th birthday. Speaking to a good friend he highly recommended SunWest Villas and was told that I would not be disapointed. He put me in touch with Greg who was very informative and explained in great detail all that he and the island had to offer. It was an extremely easy decision. We were picked up at the airport and on the drive up to the villa Greg spoke to my wife and I about the history of the island as well as numerous tidbits about the areas we we passing through. He even stopped at a scenic lookout and took numerous photos of us. I could tell that Greg was very passionate about his love for St. Lucia and I was truely impressed with his knowledge of the island and it's people. Greg mentioned he had a surprise for my wife and upon arriving at the Villa we were upgraded to the 4 bedroom Grand Coyaba. This unit was unparalleled to anything we had stayed at before and the architecture is one of a kind. The views from all 3 levels was truly breathtaking. The next morning Greg gave us an orientation tour with plenty of information on places to see as well as great local spots to eat at. He provided us a cellphone and complementary shuttle service around Gros Islet and the Rodney Bay area. Greg also offers guided tours of either the west coast or east coast of the island or both for a very reasonable rate. I would highly recommend it as you will have an opportunity to see not only the popular sites but other out of the way places. Definitely worth it. All in all, this was the most relaxing and enjoyable vacation my wife and I have had. Greg and his wife were superb hosts and absolutely the reason we had such a memorable and fascinating trip. We will definitely be returning! If you are looking for a truly amazing getaway then look no further as this is by far the best place to go. You will not be disappointed!
We were picked up at airport and transported to villa; we also enjoyed free shuttle for short trips. The tour around the island for a good rate was enjoyable.
Our stay at Sun West Villa was wonderful. The Cayoba grande villa where we stayed was spacious and slept 7 people ( 6 adults and one child) comfortably and privacy was adequate. The unit amenities were in good condition, the bedrooms were air conditioned and the villa was equiped with wifi access. In addition, the pool was clean, easily accessible and not crowded. On the day we arrived, we were picked up from the airport by Mr. Gregory Skinner, who turned out to be an excellent host. He maintained a daily shuttle service to the surrounding areas. The Villa is conveniently located close to the beach, resturants, grocery as well as other shopping areas. Gregory also took us on a complimentary tour of the surrounding north end of the island. Also, we were in St. Lucia for a wedding, and on the day of the wedding Gregory took us to Pigeon Island were the wedding was being held. In addition, Gregory also took us on a tour of the western part of the island for a reasonable price. On that tour we were able to see the Castries area, the Pitons as well as the sulphur springs. This was a wonderful first trip to St. Lucia and we will definitely stay here again.
“Absolutely an amazing adventure!”
Firstly, I need to say that I did a lot of research before we decided on where to stay in beautiful St. Lucia, and decided that we did not want the impersonal feel of the larger hotels. Based on reviews of customer service and care, we decided to go with Sunwest villas. It is a decision that was never, ever regretted! From the start, (booking online) to the end (drop off at the airport), it was excellent. We were met by Ms. Jan who showed us our villa upon arrival where we discovered we were upgraded to the four bedroom house! Ms Jan was very warm and inviting and definitely made us feel comfortable, but when she left, oh boy, we were like kids! Checking out the views from each level left us a bit spellbound not to mention the fabulous pool. The best part was the personal care Mr. Skinner delivered to us, from the use of a cell phone to island tours, it was amazing! The villa is located about a five minute drive to the famous Rodney bay area, where you can shop, dine or 'lime'. Mr. Skinner, (Greg to us), gave us an orientation the day after we arrived which was perfect as it helped us to determine what exactly we wanted from our stay. As it was, we got everything and more! We enjoyed the pool on evenings, had dinner and shopping done on the Baywalk and island tours which would not have been possible without Greg, who provides free pickups and dropoffs to the area including Pigeon island. The passion Greg has for the island is evident in the vast knowledge he shared with us on our outings. Our experiences were like no other and definitely worth every dollar. We highly recommend and would love to return, staying nowhere else but Sunwest, which indeed prove to be 'heavenly'.
Response from the owner Thank you Racheal and Richard for your kind words. I will always remember the three "R's" - Racheal, Richard and Relaxation..Happy Anniversary, All the Best, Greg
“Family Vacation in Paradise”
What a great vacation! We had 8 family members (7 adults, 1 teen) in the Coyaba Grand unit - super good sized - no issues at all with space. The deck and view -amazing! Pool was fantastic, perfect end to our days with a nice plunge and lounge around the pool. Kitchen was set up with everything we needed so no concerns there. And I was most happy with comfortable beds! I know that sounds strange, but we have had terrible beds at previous vrbo rentals - but not at Sunwest Villas, we slept like babies. Greg was the best tour guide and taxi service!! He was able to get us to the store as we needed and we had 2 wonderful full day tours of the island - fantastic days, we had a blast! We enjoyed the beach, Anne Maries, Buzz Seafood & Grill (our best meal!), Spinnakers, The Reef (best fish fingers in the world!) and of course the Friday Night Jump Up. And, Greg arranged a wonderful boat trip down the coast to Marigo Bay - 2 of our group said that was their favorite outing of the week - highly recommend as you see the island in a totally different way then when you are touring inland. We saw everything and had a blast - would definately go back to SunWest Villa. Thanks Greg!
Response from the owner Dawn. You're extended family, although from many different geographical locations, were so warm and compatible, I felt instantly adopted and part of the family. Wonderful to receive strokes on the beds, as many other guests have also mentioned sleeping like babies...Always a great start to a hard day of relaxing. The door is always open at SunWest. Hope to see you again.. Kind Regards, Greg
“Outstanding holiday and accomodations!”
We had a great holiday! This part of St. Lucia, Gros Islet is one of the best places if not the best to be in. You are near the beaches, the National Park, the grocery store, shops and restaurants. The beach is beautiful, clean with nice white sand. The apartments are a little ways up the hill but not too far, enough to be in a quite area without being far from anything. You could walk in but a car ride takes five minutes. The owner is very accommodating and usually can get you in in the morning and out in the afternoon. At other times a taxi is very cheap. The apartments are very nice, very clean, spacious, bright, with everything you need and a good kitchen. A great view. The pool is perfect, clean and quiet. Greg the owner is great to deal with, straightforward, always helpful, a mine of information about the Island and locale. He will tell you the best places to go to from his own experience and we found the advise good. We would definitely go back to this area and these apartments.
Response from the owner This was a great time to pick for a vacation, as it fell over St. Patrick's Day, which touched on both of our heritages! Thank you for the fine bottle of wine to celebrate that special day. Loved the sense of humour and the Irish friendliness. All the best, Greg
“Beautiful location, personal touch!”
Thanks again so much for all your time and generosity during our stay, Greg! You made our adventures around the island more intimate and personal; we never felt like "tourists". You added a genuine local St. Lucian flavour to our day trips. You didn't hesitate to drop us off anywhere we wanted to go during the day, and ali was the best, coolest night-time chauffeur you could have set us up with. We found the accommodations clean and roomy for both of us, and we appreciate your attention to our occasional pleas for help (ie. gas stove, fan, setting off the alarm...) We can't wait to bring the kids to St. Lucia to experience the fun we had...we felt like kids again! We've already recommended you to our friends. Wonderful hospitality! Thanks!!! Scott & Robin
Response from the owner Scott and Robin. You never felt like tourists, because you weren't. You were family. You have brought the phrase "enjoying the island" to a whole new level and I was amazed at your attentiveness to every little detail it offered. Congratulations on your engagement! We look forward to seeing you when you bring the children to St. Lucia for your upcoming wedding! All the Best, Greg
