“Janus, Thank you so much for everything!! We got to our Sandals Resort....and we definitely miss you and Sargas! We wish we could cancel Sandals and stay at your properties.
I know if we come back we'll stay with you and will tell everyone we know about your amazing Villas.
Thank you again!!”
it was a stay of a lifetime!! Overall everything was 5 star- incredible place amazing host and better than any resort service.
Sargas villa is the most beautiful and amazing Airbnb we’ve ever stayed at! The views are gorgeous and we are so sad we are leaving so shortly! We’ve spent an amazing weekend here and are continuing on to a resort further up the island, but are already talking and planning our next trip here to definitely stay at one of Janus’s properties
Chef Ramsey was amazing and cooked us a 5 star meal- probably best meal I’ve ever had and I’ve been to lots of countries. My husband and I picked pork with battered banana and it was mouth watering- we really licked our plates clean. Thank you chef Ramsey. He is as wonderful as everyone says e is and we highly recommend him ! Tip- buy a bottle of wine to enjoy with your meal!
We also ventured out to Ruby’s/Valelse now (had a name change) and the food there was really good but definitely not chef Ramsey!!! It is a 5 minute walk from the villa. Just follow the music and lights if you go there at night. Cant miss it.
Overall everything was 5 star- incredible place amazing host and better than any resort service. Thank you Sargas Villa, Janus & Ramsey and Jamal for making our stay here out of this world. We’ve already told all of our friends and will continue to tell anyone that will listen! 😊
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being so hospitable and accommodating - it was a stay of a lifetime!!

Apart from being in a gorgeous villa overlooking Soufriere and astounding view of the pitons this place feels like your home for the time you are there.
We arrived Sunday evening and the first thing we noticed was how fast we got through at the airport. Immigrations and customs officials greeted us ‘’Welcome to Paradise’’ and they weren’t kidding!
We were picked up promptly at the airport by Ramiah and driven up to Sargas villa. Throughout the drive, he was engaging and answering all our questions about the best places to visit. He showed us lil glimpses of villages along the way.
When we got to the Villa there was a blackout but even in the dark you couldn’t deny the magnificence of this place.
Janus then greeted us and gave us a quick tour of the villa. Seeing as it was close to the night, a Sunday and experiencing blackout, we were grateful that Janus had gone ahead and brought us some groceries and fruits. Our first night was peaceful and restful.
Day 2- we woke up early and had breakfast out on the porch overlooking Soufriere and the Pitons- Heaven!
We were picked up by our driver Shane around 10am and he took us to Tet Paul and the Drive-in Volcano, the Sulphur Springs, Torille waterfall and the botanical Gardens. Shane was an exceptional soul. He was very friendly and for a young guy he truly understands customer service and country pride. Shane also took us to Fedos for lunch, a childhood favorite of his and we truly understood why- amazing local cuisine.
Strongly recommend doing the all the sites mentioned above to get a better understanding of how amazing Soufriere is.
Later that evening we were treated to dinner by our private chef Ramsey. This man can cook!! Easy going and quiet temperament . He made us the best king fish dinner. Nothing can touch a St. Lucian Sunset!
Day 3 - We were picked up by Jamal, a cool dude who took us to Anse Chastanet. He dropped us at the entrance and told us where to go from there, promising to pick us up that evening. We spent the day exploring the beaches at Anse Chastanet & Anse Mamin, having lunch at restaurant at Anse Chastanet and drinks at Mamin. The beaches were a bit rough that day but still exquisite .
We fell asleep under an almond tree! Later that day we went on a Sunset cruise with Mystic Man- a must do! Not only were the staff very knowledgeable but very friendly and really took care of the guest in the boat. Unlimited drinks and finger food and a cruise around the Pitons and into an amazing and romantic Sunset. An unforgettable experience.
Day 4 - We rented a car from a dude from Islander Cars, he dropped it off at the villa for us and we decided to drive up to Castries to see that side of the island. We had lunch at Spinnakers and swam at reduit beach. Not private but calm green blue waters and endless Piton Beers! Perfect! We had dinner at Boucan, everything has chocolate in it, they didn’t disappoint.
Day 5- Drove down early to Marigot Bay and ordered a roti from a restaurant on the waters, then drove to Rodney bay and spent few hours In the crystal clear water, there weren’t many people which made it even more perfect.We had dinner at Ladera. This pace had the most spectacular view of the Pitons. Go at Sunset and just sit and watch.
Why stay at Sargas?
Janus you’ve done an amazing job with this place and you and your staff have made our stay here so memorable. Thank you for the bread, that was very thoughtful.
We will be back soon, maybe to celebrate our 11th anniversary
Thank you Again, from your Neighbors in Trinidad
Much love Sabrina & Richard
My husband and I came to St. Lucia for our honeymoon and Sargas villa was the perfect place for us to stay.
May 4- May 11, 2019
My husband and I came to St. Lucia for our honeymoon and Sargas villa was the perfect place for us to stay. We rented a car at the airport and have spent the week touring the island.
On Sunday we explored some places in the south. We took the car up to Moule a chique which provides a beautiful view of the southern tip of the island. In the afternoon we went to Rudy John Park. This is a small but very pretty beach that wasn’t too crowded (entry is completely free). That night we ate at Hummingbird and has one enjoyable (a lil pricey) experience, its easily walkable and they accept credit cards.
Monday we drove up to Castries. We took a snorkeling/sunset cruise with carnival sailing ltd. We had a wonderful time snorkeling at the base of the Pitons and the boat wasn’t too crowded. I highly recommend seeing the Pitons from the boat- it really gives you a different perspective on them.
Tuesday- we went to the botanical gardens in the morning. This place is absolutely gorgeous and I think it should be on everyone’s to do list. After the gardens we walked over to Marie’s lunch cuisine for lunch, her buffet is a nice selection of the local food and you must get the fresh mango juice. Afterwards we headed to Sulphur Springs. Lunch time /right after lunch seem to be the best time to go. Right before we left lots of tour groups arrived.
Wednesday we hiked the Gros Piton. We got to the trail head at 7:30am and we were the second group up the pitons. The earlier in the morning the better for this different hike. The main view point they take you to so its nice, but there is another view point facing the Pitit piton that is way much better. Ask your guide if he or she can take you there. You are required to have 1 liter of water for the hike. They will sell a bottle for you for $3USD or you can buy one at the grocery store/gas station.
We spent the afternoon at the Soufriere beach park. Highly recommend going there as it is nearby and very picturesque.
Chef Ramsey cooked for us that evening. His meal was absolutely delicious and he cooked us a lot of food which we devoured as we were famished from the morning hike.
Thursday morning we toured the estate at mourne Coubaril. It was a quick tour but very informative especially. About the process of making chocolate. From the gift shop we bought local coffee and local chocolate made from the estate.
The afternoon we spent on the beach at Anse Chastanet. The beach is a little small and is mostly quiet and relaxing. For dinner we went to Dasheen (pretty pricey but such a good experience) I recommend a 6:00pm and go there at 5:30pm. They will send you to the bar to wait where you can have a drink overlooking both Pitons while they come around with food samples. Over dinner you can watch the sunset behind the Pitit Piton.
Friday we drove north to Pigeon Island. To enjoy the beach after hiking. This wasn’t my favorite experience but my husband enjoyed the old fort and the beach was lovely.
Later in the afternoon we drove south to marigot bay to have a couple drinks at Doolittles. Marigot bay is stunningly beautiful and I highly recommend getting lunch, dinner or even a drink there. Finally we head down to Anse La Raye fish fry for dinner. Honestly I was expecting a tourist trap but there were only a couple of us tourist here. Your should get there after 7pm as most of the fish ismt ready before that time.. The fish was simple, fresh and delicious.
We loved our stay and hope your stay is just as wonderful.

P.S – The people after us, please enjoy the two beers and little rum we left if the fridge
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.
