Sue and I are retired and reasonably seasoned travelers, having been to Saint Lucia on a number of previous occasions, either by cruise stops or extended stays, we decided on this occasion to stay with Hector and Gale for 28 days.
We took note of the reviews online and expected to enjoy our stay.
I can say without reservation that it lived up to its promise; it is exactly as the the online reviews describe it and the photos reflect its perfect location for a view that is equal to any on the island.
Hector and Gale are excellent hosts, they live above both suites which are adjacent to each other on the lower level next to the pool and patio area, the pool is very clean and well maintained, equally so.. the suites are cleaned most days to a high std.
The suites have a large decking area outside with a small table and chairs thats ideal for early morning breakfast whilst enjoying a splendid view over Rodney Bay and Gros-Islet area; Pigeon Island and Martinique in the distance on clear days.

The suites are very smart with reasonable facilities, the TV service was upgraded whilst we were there to digital which was a good improvement, the tv itself needs to be updated in suite B now to match the better one in Suite A...the WiFi is excellent.
Both suites have air con in the bedroom only, we did not use it at all, preferring to leave the windows open for the gentle breeze that blows through out the islands, never feeling that security was an issue, the window have good fly screens that prevent any bugs from entering.

Rodney Bay is pretty much the beating heart of the island and some evening noise should be expected though it is not at all intrusive, the capital Castries is just a short bus ride away...speaking of which; it is an excellent way of getting around the island and cheap to boot.
Sue and I used the bus service extensively, having hired a car on several previous visits; it is without doubt an excellent way to travel locally, though I would suggest if you wish to travel further; a car is recommended. I believe that Hector is now able to provide a rental car at a reduced rate for his guests.
The house sits at the top of a rather steep hill and for those of a less able disposition, a car or taxi to the top is probably a requirement but Sue and I walked it every day and found it o.k.
Locally; the shops within walking distance are well stocked and prices are comparable with U.K prices.

Is it perfect....well no..nothing ever is, but if you want a well appointed self catering option holiday at a very good price and really excellent views then you won't go far wrong with this place.
small spoilers of note are the number of local dogs that are used presumably for security, they do bark quite often and occasionally for some time, particularly in the early morning, however if you leave your windows open at night then you can expect to hear them.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and we have provisionally booked another month for next year, its that good!! whether we go back or not will be determined by the fact that we have been to Saint Lucia quite a few times, not by any failings in the accommodation.

We are able to highly recommend RBS Studios and thank Hector and Gale for their hospitality and friendly disposition.

“Beautiful suite, location and super hosts!!!!!!!!”
Reviewed 25 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

My wife and I have stayed at numerous Caribbean locations and this place is definitely one of our all time favorites! We have stayed at 5 star resorts, bed and breakfasts and top all-inclusives and they have nothing on this place. Hector and Gale are great hosts and do a wonderful job making their guests feel at home in their private suites. I will briefly review all aspects of our trip:
Accommodations: Gated home. Nice room with king size bed...AC in bedroom. Cable TV, WIFI, bathroom with shower, kitchen with all accessories and nice size refridgerator. Beautiful deck with large pool with an amazing view. Provides a local cell phone to be used while visiting( extra minutes can be purchased at local grocery store). Maid service is provided 3 times per week.
Location: Rodney Bay is by far the nicest area in St. Lucia. Best restaurants, beaches, only casino on island. The suite is within walking of Rodney Bay but we used a taxi as it is up a pretty steep hill. Best beach on island is Reduit beach which is very close to Rodney Bay and Pigeon Island is also close which offer a great view and nice hike. You can rent lounge chairs/umbrella at both locations. Also, we drove to "The Landings" resort and on arrival told them we would be having lunch so they gave us a guest pass and we were able to use their facilities, lounger chairs, rafts, umbrella, extra towels, got waitress service (pina coladas) and had a nice lunch for aprox $80. Well worth it.
Restaurants: We ate at Tapas, Big Chef, Spinnakers, Tao, The Cliff at Cap Masion. All of the dinners were excellent and we have eaten at many fine establishments over the years. The Cliff and Big Chef were the most expensive..aprox $200 for a couple with some cocktails but well worth it.
Service: Hector does a great job.....nothing is ever a problem and he delivers exactly what he says he will do. He easily arranged our taxi to/from his suite for $80 USD, (driver was waiting for us as we arrived from Newark, NJ)and drove us the 1.5 hours to location. I would recommend this as it is a long drive and after traveling, it was nice to leave the driving to someone else. The driver (Elvis) stopped on our way at Super J so we could get some groceries for the week and more importantly some Piton (local beer)...even gave us his loyalty card. The grocery stores are close but if you don't get a car, it would be tough getting stuff later so go in with a list of what you need. We ate at the suite for breakfast, got some cold cuts for a few lunches and brought a cooler to the beach and ate all dinners out.
Hector will also arrange any tours you would like. We did the Segway tour(highly recommend) near Reduit beach and the "Land and Sea" which was all day...little too long on the land side but nice nonetheless. Hector was also very accommodating dropping us off in Rodney Bay and Reduit beach to save us from getting a taxi which we got back for $8. Hector arranged to have a jeep dropped off at location for us for 4 days and took me to police station to get temp drivers license ($20). Also, on our last night(Friday), Hector took us out to the street party and showed us the local scene which was really an experience in Gros Islet.
All in all, it was fantastic. If your goal is to see St. Lucia and explore this gorgeous island, then this is the place to stay as it really has everything you need. If you want all inclusive then go to Mexico, Punta Cana, and Jamaica as it is complete waste in my opinion to spend the money to travel to St. Luca and not eat in the excellent restaurants or see the various beaches. St. Lucia residents are very friendly people and we always felt safe. Relax and enjoy RBS......you won't be disappointed!!!

“Absolutely Amazing!”

My husband and I travelled here for our honeymoon and couldn't be happier with our decision. We booked this property using VRBO and didn't know what to expect, but it was amazing. Everything from the communication beforehand to the airport transfers; the beautiful views to the great location, this suite was perfect. Everything is modern, super clean and very well maintained. The wi-fi is excellent and even available around the pool. The kitchen had everything we needed and the marina with the restaurants, shops, tours, etc., is only a short 10 minute walk. Security is never an issue here, as the property is gated, it's safe to walk to the marina and the suites have a safe to store your valuables. The pool area is gorgeous with fantastic views, it is well maintained, has speakers to play your own music and they even have inflatable pool float mattresses if you like. The absolute best thing about this rental though is the owners. Gale and Hector are extrodinary people. They make you feel welcome, are happy to show you around, give you your space if you want it and will even go as far as booking tours and rental cars on your behalf. They not only made us feel comfortable, they completed our vacation! The only thing I would change about our trip was the length - I wish we were still there!

Our accommodation was as good or better than some 4-5 star hotels and with a personal touch to go with it. When we made the reservation in January, we decided to rent a car verses taking a taxi and drive from the airport in Vieux Fort to Rodney Bay. Since it was a late Friday afternoon when we arrived at the apartment and after getting settled in, we were invited by the owners Gale & Hector to join them by taking us to Gros Islet to take part in the weekly Friday night jump-up (street party). This also included the other couple who we're staying in the apartment next to us. What a blast. This type of "caring" attentiveness shown by Gale & Hector was repeated many more times over the next seven days of our stay.

St. Lucia is a beautiful island with warm weather, warm ocean temps, great local vibe, and property owners like Gale & Hector who delivered exactly like the pictures shown on their site. There was so much more than simple words can describe our fabulous stay. We look forward to coming back again in the future.
