Benjamin & Noelle from Rochester NY
Came here to escape from a very long winter and celebrate our 15 year wedding anniversary. We were not disappointed even with the closure of certain tourists sites due to Covid.
The Villa is so beautiful that having the majority of our time spent here in the villa was wonderful
We have been to other vacation destinations where everything was spread out.
It was so helpful to have everything at your fingertip
The pool and pool deck with the beautiful wooden loungers were our constant comparisons. We were so appreciative to have A.C in the bedroom unit to sleep so soundly at nights.
It was such a treat to overlook beautiful Soufriere and watch the beauties of everyday life happen before our eyes.
Janus gave us a personalized tour of his newest villa, had amazing chauffeur service provided by Dillon & Malie
The Soufriere tour was a highlight and shane was amazing! Even though I was hesitant at first, he made it so easy to get into the St. Lucia Spirit and have fun decorating eachother with mud!
The local food was delicious, it was our first time trying jerk chicken and I wanted to go home and learn how to make it
The little town with 8,000 people is bursting at the seams with Caribbean charms.
Also want to give a special shout out to Janus for setting up an appointment with a local doctor to easily get our PCR test done as we could return home.
A Thousand thank you to Janus and all who made it possible.
Let me start off this note by saying WOW! This villa is a secluded slice of heaven. We just came from Sargas Villa the last 5 days- so this was a nice change of scenery. You really feel like you’re in a jungle. Absolutely love the place.
After an eventful few days it was so nice to relax and enjoy St. Lucia from our home away from home.
We were so lucky to spend some time with Janus too! We ended up chilling by the pool on the deck with some rum drinks . After that we kicked back and relaxed before making dinner. We cooked some fresh veggies, chix and had some cheese crackers.
Janus dropped by at about 7:30 and we spent 5 hours talking about life. If you have the chance to spend some time with the host and get to know his story then I highly recommend doing so! We had an absolute blast with him. The next day we tried out the drone around the villa.
So cool and shout out to Janus for bringing us an SD card because we forgot one. This was another day of relaxing . To top off our last night in St. Lucia we knew we had to hire Chef Ramsey. (many times too!) we had the chicken curry this time after the grilled seafood amazing is an understatement . Guaranteed food coma! Chef Ramsey even brought us desert.
I wrote in the last book it feels like you’re royalty here and that has continued the whole time. Now its off to the Botanical Gardens before we jet off back to Boston. I could not be more grateful for the beautiful people we have met here.
Especially Janus and his entire family/team. All of the villas are arts he put soo much love into- truly awesome and inspiring. Get a tour of another one if you can.
Thank you again for the most magical trip. We love you and we will be friends for life

Honestly what sold us on St. Lucia is this Villa!. I cannot believe our time at Serrana Villa is over already.
After planning this trip for almost 2 years, I cannot believe our time at Serrana Villa is over already. Honestly what sold us on St. Lucia is this Villa! We wanted to go somewhere with great beaches, tropical jungle + plenty adventure. St. Lucia perfectly has all of that + Serrana was the perfect place to call home while we explored this incredible island.
Janus is an incredible host! We feel like we’ve known him forever. He was so welcoming and friendly plus his Villa is a little slice of heaven!
- Rent a car from Janus. He gives you a cooler plus a cellphone with your rental. We rented from another company and wished we had a cooler.
- If hiking Gros Piton, make sure you have 1.5L of water per person. The guides will check to make sure you have enough before they bring you up + you will want it! Plus, we also recommend freezing a bottle of water the night before and leaving it in the car while you hike, that way you’ll have cool water waiting for you when done!
- Try Piton Beer, it’s worth it.
Thank you, Janus, for making our time in Soufriere so amazing. We cannot wait to come back someday!

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.
