Only a short stay at Sapphire but a lovely place and exceptional view! Thanks for a great stay Janus. Nice to meet you and best of luck with your projects!
Only a short stay at Sapphire but a lovely place and exceptional view! Had a great time climbing Petit Piton on the morning of our first day. We went with Jahrod Alcindor of Eco Adventures – Highly recommended as a guide.
Petit Piton is not a difficult climb but the slippery rocks and very muddy route do make it hazardous, in places there is a lot of exposure to long drops- so if you are nervous with heights – maybe reconsider this activity. We got to the top in 1hr 30 mins and back down in a similar time.
The key is to leave early (6:30am is good) – that way you will avoid all groups, most of which you will encounter on decent.
Note that although not technically difficult, this should be considered fairly serious outing where good upper body strength is essential ( you will be using your arms to pull yourself up almost 60% of the climb. The summit is well worth it and so is the view!
Food: Bell View Restaurant was good, was not that impressed with the food at Petit Peak. Good cocktails at skippers Bar.
Friendly beach @ Anse (About a 10 min drive away at Jade Mountain Resort).
Adam & Gemma – New Forest, Hampshire, England.
Thanks for a great stay Janus. Nice to meet you and best of luck with your projects!
Hope to see you again in the future.

This was our first time at an airbnb vs an all-inclusive resort and I feel like the experience was so excellent we are now spoiled and will have much too high expectations if we stay anywhere else! Serrana Villa
“Location, views, hospitality, communication, plunge pool and tech amenities (wifi, smart TV with Netflix) - these were all outstanding. This was our first time at an airbnb vs an all-inclusive resort and I feel like the experience was so excellent we are now spoiled and will have much too high expectations if we stay anywhere else!
I booked our stay for Serrana in January (8 months in advance) because I could see that it was already mostly booked for the year, and because the pictures of the place were absolutely stunning, not to mention the numerous 5-star reviews on multiple social media platforms.
Your Villa speaks for itself, and with such a high occupancy rate, I'm sure you already know that travelers are lined up to stay there because of the vacation experience only you can offer them.
This was a dream come true for our 10th wedding anniversary celebration and we are forever grateful to you for making that dream come true!” Jolene
“Janus, We had an amazing stay at your property. Thank you for opening your doors for us. We thoroughly enjoyed walking around the town and hiking Gros Piton. You and your staff are very friendly and kind. We were impressed by the quickness in which you responded to our messages and requests.
Your travel arrangements made the stay convenient and provided a nice peace of mind, getting to the condo from the airport. We cannot thank you enough. The condo was clean and organized upon our arrival.
It featured everything we needed for our stay (shampoo, body wash, kitchen utensils, iron and board, washing machine).
We will be sure to recommend your property to our friends back in the States! Janus, once again, thank you! All the best, Jeremy”
If you are an experienced hiker looking to get out of your villa and enjoy a real challenge, Petit Piton is just what you are looking for. Not for the faint of heart, Petit Piton is summated by only a selection of those who begin the journey, but all who try find themselves challenged and truly enjoying the St. Lucian landscape in a thrilling new way. Petit Piton can only be hiked with the help of a licensed guide who is familiar with every facet of the terrain due to the steep ascent, but it is certainly an adventure to write home about. Be sure to bring plenty of water, but if you are looking for real thrills and adventure, this is the journey for you!
We are blazing an immersion trail that nobody has gone down before. See all the guests who are sharing their video experience with the world.
