We love St. Lucia 😊
Although we did have some rainy days, they didn’t phase our trip! We were still able to see the drive in Volcano and enjoy the Mud Baths. Shane was our guide, he did an amazing job, very personable.
Our Favorite restaurant was the Blue Anchor café! The chicken pasta was incredible! 😊

You deciding to choose Saba Villa for your stay was a great decision. Janus and his team are son wonderful. If you need anything, they make it happen…while many things are closed due to Covid, you will still enjoy your stay.
Day 1- we arrived at about 3:00pm. We ordered carry out for dinner, hang out by the pool and relaxed, went to the market got food for the house.
Day 2- Went to the beach -Malgretoute beach. Checked out Janus’ new build and then chocolat resort for dinner. We did recommend going there before the sunset so you can see the beautiful views of the Pitons from there.
Day 3- Shane took us to the Tet Paul Nature Trail. The views from there are amazing. It is a short hike and well worth it. He then took us to get some take-out lunch at dreams. He also took us to some look out point to see more of the Island. For dinner we had Chef Ramsey! If you do anything, do this! The food was absolutely delicious. We had the grilled pork Pineapple. Banana en batter. This was by far one of our favorite meals!
Day 4- Boat tour with Daniel from feel good tours. We did the half day tour. We loved everything about this. He took us to Marigot Bay to hang out by the beach. After that we went to another location for snorkeling. Finally we went to another beach while he cooked us fresh tuna on rocks. It was delicious! Highly recommend doing this as you see all parts of the Island. We ended up doing dinner at Chocolat again. We sat downstairs and the view was even better
Day 5- time to go home. Soaking in as much sun and relaxing here at the villa. It truly is a perfect place to be!
Enjoy your stay at Saba Villa. Janus and his team are simply the best!! We will be back

Staying with Janus, you get all the luxuries of an expensive resort, with an unbelievably low price tag.
Dear Janus and his Team (future Guest!!)
How do we describe how much we loved our stay at Saba Villa? I guess it goes without saying, as this is our second trip here in a year!
We last stayed in February 2020 right before Covid Pandemic really hit hard in the US, to celebrate our 2nd year anniversary as well as our babymoon!! We knew this was the perfect place to relax and unwind during a pandemic, as everything you need is right there in the villa! We haven’t left once!!
We’ve literally spent all day laying by the pool admiring the magnificent view of the Pitons, swimming, cooking and watching movies on Netflix in the evening.
As per our previous experience here, we knew that if there was anything we needed, Janus would make sure to arrange it for us. Staying with Janus, you get all the luxuries of an expensive resort, with an unbelievably low price tag.
We already knew we would be coming back soon and are already planning on sending other Family members to stay at Janus’ properties.
Thank you so much, Again for such an unforgettable stay!
Your loyal customers,
Sarah & David
Words cannot describe how amazing our week in St. Lucia has been amidst the Pandemic, our escape at the villa was just what we needed- a week of relaxation, breathtaking views, sunshine and delicious foods.
Janus made sure our trip was unbelievable. He was the most hospitable host! Even though most of the island was shut down due to Covid, our time in Soufriere was nothing short of incredible.
-Malie picked us up promptly from the airport, and was so gracious in grabbing us groceries, dinner etc. throughout our stay!
-Shane treated is to an amazing day touring Soufriere- even though many places were closed, we still had a great day!
-Ramiah- dropped off take out from Many local eateries we would have gone hungry without him!
-Chef Ramsey came twice and prepared some spectacular dishes for us, our favorite being the cod and green banana!
-The dream was our favorite restaurant for authentic local cuisine. The best jerk chicken and chicken roti!
Thank you, Janus for a trip we will never forget. Your kindness and graciousness did not go unnoticed. We cannot wait to come back soon.

To all Guest- take it in. Every second of it, because I promise you, as you leave you are going to instantly miss it!
Perfectly timed retreat!!
While everything is changing around us at a pace that is tough to keep up with. Saba Villa is a perfect resting spot in a beautiful country. When I say beautiful it goes so much deeper than the amazing view of the Pitons, warm weather and sunshine to bask in. it also refers to the friendly people we have encountered, the charming roosters all over town letting you know its morning time and the rambunctious goats providing a good laugh.
Most of all though- Saba allows you to take a few breaths and relax, rest your mind and get back on the path you intend it to be.
Janus Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with is for the week and best of luck in all your ventures. I cannot wait for our paths to cross again. Please send our love to Chef Ramsey as well. He was phenomenal!!
To all Guest- take it in. Every second of it, because I promise you, as you leave you are going to instantly miss it! Enjoy your stay.
Cheers to a happy and prosperous 2021 and every year there-after!

Covid-19 was announced to be a world wide pandemic. Luckily Janus saved our trip. If covid-19 makes us stay in St. Lucia for another week we won’t be so upset about it!!
JANUS IS THE MAN!!!!!!
We Came to St. Lucia to celebrate our recent engagement and my 30th birthday. We arrived in Rodney Bay on Monday night only to find out there was a mix up with our reservation and we had to downgrade our hotel. A few days later covid-19 was announced to be a world wide pandemic. Although the Rodney Bay beaches is nice , the whole experience was weh!
Luckily Janus saved our trip. We were able to leave Rodney Bay sooner and come to the lovely Soufriere.. From the time Ian picked us up the trip continued to get better and better. Things we saw and recommend in Soufriere:- Tet Paul Nature Trail, Botanical Gardens/Diamond waterfall, torille waterfall and Mud Baths.
Anse Mamin Beach was our favorite. We stayed there all day and watched the sun set, we highly recommend this – burgers on the beach were delicious, we had the fish burgers.
Pier 28 for late night food. We walked there on Friday night and enjoyed the fries and chicken wings, very cheap and delicious.
Today we plan on spending the day at the villa and enjoying the view
We can’t thank Janus enough for his generosity. He has played a major role on planning our trip memorable. We are looking forward to sharing our pictures and recommending janus’ place to our family & friends. We typically like to travel to different places but we might have to come back here.
Once again thank you Janus
Austyna & John from Canada
P.S -If covid-19 makes us stay in St. Lucia for another week we won’t be so upset about it
We love Soufriere
Thank you for having us at wonderful Sab, we could not have been happier with our stay.
The views and pool were much appreciated. We cooked a nice meal and then sat on the deck into the night. Janus was so kind and funny upon arrival, he made us very welcome, nothing has gone unnoticed, we plan on coming back. Thanks so much.

We have thoroughly enjoyed our time here in St. Lucia staying in Beautiful Saba Villa. Most of our stay has been here at the villa relaxing and decompressing from the hussle and bussle of our lives back home.
We had dinner at Sugar Beach between the 2 Pitons at Viceroy Resort, the views of the sunset there was spectacular!
We had Jamal take us to Rodney Bay for a day trip, shopping along the way. For some great photos, sampled some cassava bread and rum tasting at the side of the road.
Walked Anse Chastanet and Anse Mamin beaches and got some amazing pictures. Stopped at the Blue Anchor Café near the Gazevo at Soufriere Beach Park, the chicken Penini’s were amazing!!!
Went on a hike on Tet Paul Nature Trail, got ot see some incredible sightes and had some great Photos takes by our guide, drove into the volcano and ended the day at Torille Waterfall, it was beautiful, so powerful and refreshing!!
We have enjoyed our first trip to St. Lucia to celebrate our 9th wedding anniversary. Thank you to sherek and Jamal for being great guides and taking some awesome pictures for us to enjoy for years to come

We were already in the pool dreading leaving. we are at the ladera for the next four days but would stay here if we could get our deposit back from ladera
Dear Janus ( + his team ) & Future guests
Where do we start? First off, this is the one of the best properties to rent on the island! The view of the pitons, Soufriere and the ocean is appareled! you feel as if this is one of your own private high end resort, with all the amenities (Infinity pools, huge balconies, lounge chairs , smart tvs in every room rainfall and shower ) with all the comfort and luxuries of home . we never wanted to leave! you would notice day by day intentions was to stay spot here.
Now Janus is a phenomenal host! our first day in just so happened to be independence on the island and most things were closed, he went and stocked our fridges with home essentials so we won’t be hungry our first night! He is incredibly reasonable and is very passionate about the cares of his guests in all his properties. When we got there, he met us in person to go over everything! Now for our day to day itinerary:
• Night – Got dinner at petit peaks because it was the only place open. Food was good but a bit overpriced. I’m sure during the day when you can enjoy the view, its more worth it! came back to the villa, opened all the sliding doors to let in the Caribbean breeze and did come late night swimming.
• Day 2 – Full relaxing day at the villa, there is really no reason to leave …dinner with chef Ramsey! Delicious! An absolute must! We really enjoyed this and had we been there earlier we would have booked him again!
• Day 3 – Went to Anse Chastnet beach for 2.5hrs which is 10-15 mins away. We realize we like staying out at the villa better so we came back and spent the rest of the day there! , having a full kitchen was amazing as we really enjoyed cooking most of our meals there !
• Day 4 – Another crazy/ relaxing day at the villa. we took the sunset cruise through mystic man cruise (janus recommendation). its $60 USD per person and so worth it!
• Last day – We were already in the pool dreading leaving. we are at the ladera for the next four days but would stay here if we could get our deposit back from ladera !
We absolutely loved SABA VILLA and JANUS and will recommend his properties to anyone!
Love Sarah and David from new York
WEATHER IN SAINT LUCIA
While most places in the world have four well-defined seasons, its proximity to the equator means that this is not really the case for the island of St. Lucia.
