This is our first time to St. Lucia and we couldn't love it more! We booked our trip after watching an episode of "Million Dollar Listing" where Frederick is selling properties on Sugar Beach! I instantly knew I needed to go there and booked this AirBNB that night!! We planned our trip around the availability of this villa (these were the only two nights available for months!) We used this guide book to plan much of our trip so we hope this is helpful!
Day 1: Landed at the airport and picked up our rental car. (Great decision-but not totally necessary!) We stopped for lunch at Mama Tilly's in Laborie. We had fried fish and bread and it was incredible! Before that we also stopped at Massy's Supermarket to grab some essentials (beer & water). Next, we continued to the villa where Janus met us at "Cool Breeze" to bring us the rest of the way. For the rest of the day we hung at the villa drinking beers and listening to music. Janus arranged car service to dinner to & from Orlando's Restaurant. Food was a pre-fixed menu and was AMAZING! We even met Orlando himself! Oh- and we also met Mama Tilly! We were going to go to a bar called "Whispers" but we were exhausted so came back and passed out.
Day 2: Woke up early and drove to Tet Paul Nature Trail. Good idea to go early because we beat the crowds! Our tour guide was funny and knowledgeable! He picked flower and herbs for us to try. Spectacular views!!! $10 each for the trail. Next we drove back to the villa and then got a car service to go to Anse Chastenet beach. The drive is gnarly and we wanted to relax & drink! We got lounge chairs for $12 each and super expensive drinks ($16 each!!). We rented snorkel gear for $11 each and it was great! We saw trumpet fish and sooo many others along with beautiful coral! Then we walked down to Anse Mamin for this Jungle burger we've been hearing about, sooo worth it!! The beach was super quiet. We hung out here for a couple of hours. Didn't even have to pay for chairs! We swam and drank Pitons and loved our time here. After that Janus' dad picked us up to go back to the villa! We found out HE is the Private Chef! There is a menu in the living room- if we had more time definitely would have done this!!! We had reservations at Dasheene @ Ladera! Best choice ever!!! Book a reservation for 6:00 so you can see the sunset! Five star views!!! They also had an amazing violinist so we hung out at the bar after dinner for more cocktails. Get the coquito! Then Janus and his son Marz picked us up!!
Day 3: Woke up slow. Enjoyed breakfast and coffee at the villa. We ate fresh mangoes that Janus brought us! We plan to go to Sugar Beach today and then drive north to continue our vacation at another AirBNB on Rodney Bay.
We cant say enough great things about Janus!! He truly is a super host!! He goes above and beyond to ensure you have the best stay! He treats you like family! We will definitely be back to stay at Janus' new property!!

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.
