This was our second trip to St.Lucia and second booking with Janus.... and we booked for next year already!! Janus has cultivated a one-stop shop for his guests and we love the locations of his villas- high enough for an amazing view, but still walking distance to services.
We did most of our shopping in Vieux Fort (Massy & Uptowns Liquor), but the two Grocery stores here had good variety.
The small "supermarket" accross from the sports field had a nice (limited) selection of pantry staples. we enjoyed making a salad out of julienned christophine. peel, cut sections like you would a mango (there is a peel seed), julienne and mix in some sliced green onions, dried cranberries and toss with vinaigrette.
Our yearly St. Lucia treat! that and rum and sunshine!

I just cant’s say enough about how much I appreciate this experience and all of the great hospitality! It felt like such a privilege to bring in the new year in this beautiful place!
It felt like such a privilege to bring in the new year in this beautiful place! Janus, you have been such a great host! You have a great team of dedicated driver committed to delivering an excellent experience! We cannot say how much we appreciate to get around town easily and out to the excursions!
We really enjoyed the hike down to the waterfall. Our guide Douglas was super knowledgeable of not only the rainforest. But also shared the history and culture of Soufriere which is so interesting! Ian drove us around to several places looking for lunch and we decided to dine in because the waits would be very long. It may be a good idea to do a better job than we did about calling ahead. Thought we only had a rain-forest tour schedule. Ian offered to bring us wherever we wanted after and made a few suggestions. We ended up at the mud baths which was a cool experience.
Jamal was also super helpful driving us around to find Souvenirs because we were here during a couple of national holidays. We wished we would have planned ahead a little more but Janus’ team was great about telling us when things would be closed & even went grocery shopping for breakfast for us before they picked us up from the airport because of the holiday the next day. The view for new years eve fire works over the bay was amazing!
We had two gourmet dinner at the villa & they were spectacular. Ramsey was a great chef & dinner host & there is no restaurant in town that has this view! I just cant’s say enough about how much I appreciate this experience and all of the great hospitality! (& Creole Food!!)

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.
