I cannot over emphasise how amazing our stay at La Chaudieres was. The location is stunning, with views over the beach, the rainforest covered mountains, the local fishing villages. It is honestly breathtaking. If you can tear your eyes away from the surroundings, the house itself is wonderful. Sitting in the hammock, or relaxing at the multitude of different seating areas, you can't fail to relax. The beds are super comfy and the rooms are spacious. There are some reviews which suggest the property is a bit tired, which I don't agree with. Sure the bathrooms need updating, but that's such a minor element, I only mention it to defend previous comments. If you're looking for modern pristine, go to Sandals and enjoy an anonymous holiday. If you want luxury in St Lucia, look no further.
But beyond the stunning views and the lovely house, this place is all about the people. Christy is the most phenomenal cook. Every meal was a joy and an adventure. Cushelle, who cooks breakfast, Lenny, the driver, Hillary the security guy, they felt like family, like friends for our stay. Although we were in a very plush environment, we truly felt like we were getting to know St Lucia, the food, the people, the culture. I cannot recommend this property highly enough. Just thanks for a wonderful, much needed holiday. It was awesome.
