Our 6 nights here at Serrana Villa have gone by too quickly, We sure will miss the fireflies and stargazing back in London ( and the amazing view!). Thoroughly enjoyed lunch and swimming at Sugar Beach and the Breathtaking views from Jade Mountain.
Great Villa, stunning location and Janus is the perfect gent!

Serrana Villa (2 nights as that is all we could get and today moving to Sapphire Apt. # 2, also owned by Super Host Janus.
We have been in St. Lucia for almost 2 weeks and have divided our time between 3 locations (Rodney Bay in the north at Bay Gardens Beach Resort) Marigot Bay _Marigot Palms Guest House and last was definitely not least, Serrana Villa (2 nights as that is all we could get and today moving to Sapphire Apt. # 2, also owned by Super Host Janus.
Janus is a Unique Rising Star- very hard working and great manager/organizer for his staff. We were welcomed into the villas as if it was our own – enjoyed the fruit and bread delivery from Janus! Thanks so much!
We’ve only been in Soufriere for a couple of days, so we weren’t experts on the area but we did visit the Sulphur Springs/Mud Baths late yesterday afternoon (lots of fun). And got a takeaway from fedos to enjoy at the villa for supper (they close at 5:00pm). We also plan to visit Anse Chastanet, Anse Mamin, Sugar Beach and Tet Pail Nature Trail.
We walked from the villa into Soufriere yesterday and enjoyed getting a flavor of the local people and their way of life. We’ve rented a vehicle from Islander Car (Marcus Antoine) on Janus’s Suggestion. Were glad to have the extra clearance on vehicle, especially for roads in the town (back roads); The ‘’highway’’ wasn’t as scary as we’d been told. We are used to mountains and windy roads where we live but have fewer potholes.
We love the location of the villa, backing onto the jungle, watching the bats and fire flies at night was something we had not experienced in a long time, the infinite pool is awesome and we will really miss it ! Loved the beautiful view from this location and all the features of the villa. Appreciate having the laundry facility after being away from home for 2 weeks.
We loved our stay in St. Lucia, It’s warm, friendly people, the gorgeous and beautiful water to swim/snorkel in (went to Anse Couchon while staying in Marigot Bay) get snorkeling and nice lunch at Ti- Kaye Resort. Rented flippers there but brought our own mask. We also spent some time at Pigeon Island in the north, nice little family oriented beach and walked up to the top where the cannons are located, beautiful view from that vintage point.
Thank you so much Janus for all your help and hospitality. We really hope to stay longer at the villa next time.

"Beautiful Island, Wonderful Host- Janus is ‘’one of a kind’’ – definitely a star! Provided not only his mom’s bread, local fruits, lime, avocados."
Beautiful Island, Wonderful Host- Janus is ‘’one of a kind’’ – definitely a star! Provided not only his mom’s bread, local fruits, lime, avocados. Got lots of info about the island, best places to go, how to get there etc.
His drivers were also great, very helpful too!
Unfortunately is rained a lot of the time which restricted our sight seeing a lot. We did visit diamond waterfalls, Sulphur baths & Botanical. The place provided ‘umbrella coves’. We didn’t have a guide, we just wondered, everything was sign posted and name tagged.
We went on the Sunset Cruise, no sunset but plenty of rain and lightning storm, didn’t dampen our spirit, rum punch and nibbles provided (mystic man cruise) again staff was great, went talking to everyone etc.
We ate in Orlando’s, Boucan @ Hotel Chocolat & Jade Mountain, all great for different reasons.
Locally- we ate at Pitit Peak, Fedo’s and Ruby’s (twice), agree with some comments made about Ruby’s. Skippers, Big Yard, Sea View & Outside Bar at Pier 28.
Everything is in walking distance which is great. Supermarket stocks a good range of provisions if you prefer to cook at home
All in all, great experience and worth another visit.
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.
