Thank you Janus and St. Lucia on a whole for making a very young newly married couple feel very welcome and safe on our honeymoon.
First thank you so much Janus for being a truly amazing host. We felt so welcomed by you and you were always so available for us when we called randomly all the time 😊 The Villa is absolutely gorgeous, and we enjoyed it as our ‘’home’’ for the week we were here for our honeymoon! We could not have asked for a better place! Also-This book is awesome! My husband Connar and I loved reading about everyone’s experiences. So much fun and very helpful!
We are very big beach people so of course we had to go to the beaches. First beach we went to was Sugar Beach. We thought it was nice but way to resort (snobby…lol) for us young honeymooners. If you’re looking for a gorgeous white sandy beach with an amazing view definitely check it out. We rented snorkeling gears here for $11usd each for 1 hour and it was nice but there wasn’t much to see in our personal opinion. Apparently Anse Chastanet beach has great snorkeling. We went to Anse Chastanet but ended up choosing to walk and stay at Anse Mamin twice. It was only about 10-minute walk from Anse Chastanet. We loved it. It was so nice and secluded and felt a bit more private. You can rent chairs for $15USD a chair and just stay all day. The food was awesome as well. We enjoyed the Garmet Burger one day ($28USD) and the fish burger ($18USD) the next. Highly recommend this beach. Oh! and they got an amazing banana deiquin.
We also enjoyed the zip lining at Mourne Coubaril Estate. We made reservation online, but when we got there we realized it would have been cheaper if we had just walked in. It was super fun and we felt like it was a great way to see some awesome views. Worth the money in our opinion. We also had lunch there – was a buffet serving creole food- amazing. It was only $10USD each.
Speaking of food- here’s a summary of all the places we went:-
Martha’s Tables: YUM!! Amazing creole food. We loved it – ended up spending about $40USD for both my husband and I and that included 2 drinks and an appetizer-must go!
Ruby’s: Nice and convenient – we walked down the villa both times we went. Honestly we felt like the prices were way to much for what you get. Go for Pier 28 in town instead.
Pier 28: Similar food to Ruby’s- chicken Fingers, burgers etc… but for like half the price of Ruby’s. Definitely move of a bar feel but we enjoyed. Plus you get a great view of Soufriere ($7ish to $15ish a plate)
Mango tree: We had planned on going somewhere more expensive like Jade mountain or Orlando’s but after our first time at Mango Tree, we realized that we had to go back. Amazing view, up scale fell and of course great food. This is a great place for a fancier meal. Dinner plates range from $20-40USD.
We loved having a rental car – however if you warned about driving on some tough roads you may want to get a driver.
Locals are super nice. Ill encourage you to venture out in Soufriere a few times and walk around. I can honestly say that being in town and being amongst all of the amazing locals was one of my favorite parts of the trip. St. Lucian are truly amazing people.
Along with going into town, definitely check out Eroline’s Supermarket- it’s fun to see the different things they have and cooking in the villa was a lot of fun.
Don’t be afraid to call Janus for help- he was always so willing and able to help us – whether we were lost downtown in our rental car – looking for a particular attraction- he was always there to help!
Well now that my hand writing has changed about 3x. Id better stop writing (lol) Thank you Janus and St. Lucia on a whole for making a very young newly married couple feel very welcome and safe on our honeymoon. We appreciate everything so much!! Now Back to Texas…
