Came in approximately 2 hours later than expected due to airplane issues. Janus of course was very flexible and met us at the house, gave us a great tour!
- Hiked Gros Piton the first day, which was surprisingly challenging, expect 4 hours round trip total, and you can get an ice cream at the end! If you’re wanting to eat dinner at Jade Mountain book early. We were unable to get a dinner reservation during our stay. Unfortunately, lunch is an easier time to get in. Dinner at Chocolat Boucan was very nice, not very busy so the feeling was good. Got there early and hanged at the bar. Awesome view of the piton, open air was nice.
- Bike St. Lucia at Anse Chastanet. Call to schedule the day before. Also, since we were not guests of the hotel- important to pay at scuba center at Anse Chastanet Beach before meeting the bike guide at Anse Mamin Beach $160 USD for both of us. Varying level of difficulty trails and the intro tour it was fun. Hanged out on the beach afterwards, just threw a towel down on the sand so we wouldn’t have to pay for any beach chairs. Lunch at Jade mountain was nice, practically had the place for ourselves, great view of pitons. Price was same as for dinner, but very was slow!
- Decided to spend the day enjoying the villa. The pool is perfect while the sun is shining on it. Walked to Ruby’s for dinner. Food was good (ordered the spicy wings .. YUM!!) and staff is very friendly there. Arrived back at the villa to find fresh mangoes hanging on the front door! Finished off the night on the deck enjoying a game of cricket, best seats in town!
- Checking out today and heading up north. Janus Kindly arranged transportation with a stop at a waterfall. Janus definitely lives up to expectations, strives to make you as comfortable as possible, excellent communication and his staff are wonderful! We recommend this villa to anyone who visits Soufriere and want to experience both tourist and local life. We definitely do not expect the same spectacular and welcoming experience at our next house up north.
THANK YOU SO MUCH JANUS FOR EVERYTHING!!
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.
