July 15- 22, 2019
Day 1- we landed at the airport around 2:00pm. One of Janus’ drivers Alton was waiting for us at the airport and happily helped us with our bags and we proceeded to Soufriere. Unfortunately the stores were closed due to the holiday carnival but Alton took us to a gas station where we were able to load up on water beers and snacks. Once we arrived at the Beautiful Villa, We hang out by the pool on the patio. For dinner we headed into town and went to Pitit Peak- great view, food and service.
Day 2- we woke up a little earlier today to head to the supermarket, It was a beautiful day on the island. We decided to lay low at our villa, and spent the day by our pool and tanning- the deck is a perfect spot. Later in the evening, we had chef Ramsey come to the villa to make us dinner. This is a must do! The food was amazing, he was so friendly and the price was very reasonable for the convenience! We ate the grilled chicken breast with ginger garlic sauce. Soooo good!
Day 3 -We woke up to another beautiful day. We decided to go enjoy a beach for the day. We left for Sugar Beach around 8:45am, it was a quick 10 minute drive from the Villa. It was U.S $50 per person to get in but that acted as a food and beverage minimum. This beach was so quiet, had amazing service and beautiful views. The food here was so very tasty- we highly recommend their pizza and chicken sandwich. We headed back around 4pm and made dinner from stuff we bought at the supermarket.
Day 4 -Mystic Man Tours!!! We were looking forward to this day our entire trip, we were a little bummed looking at the forecast because it was expected to rain all day. Luckily the forecast wasn’t accurate, it was partly cloudy and only rained for a quick 15 minutes. About a month before our trip we reserved a private catamaran with Mystic Man Tours. This was a full day sail (about 7 hours ) We departed at 9:00am and headed north for some snorkeling- we highly recommend snorkeling at some point while on island. After snorkeling we headed even further up north for some lunch at Marigot Bay. The view was breathtaking. After the boat tour. Alton was there ready to pick us up. We cannot say enough great things about the driving service- we would recommend utilizing this service during your stay!
Day 5 - Today we did the Soufriere tour through Janus . This tour was about 4 hours and we hit a few different stops during the tour. We went to a look out point where you could see the whole city of Soufriere. We got great pictures here. Next we headed to Tet Paul Nature trail. We had an excellent tour guide who helped us throughout the hike. The hike was not difficult but by any means, we were able to do the whole thing in sandals. We then headed to Sulphur Springs where we did a tour and mud baths combo package. The tour at the volcano is worth checking out while here- the mud baths is a definite must- we finished the day at the botanical gardens. There was a beautiful waterfall there along with some amazing flowers. For lunch our tour guide brought us to Fedos- great local food- just note it is cash only there.
Day 6 - today we had another relaxing day by our patio/pool at the villa. For dinner we went to Dasheene at Ladera Resort. This was by far our favorite place, the food, drinks, views were absolutely amazing. We got there around 3pm to have some drinks and watch the sun set. Our reservation was for 7:15pm and we were able to sit earlier round 6:45pm- We recommend making reservation in advance as it gets very busy around dinner time.
Day 7 -Today we went back to Sugar beach and had chef Ramsey come back at night to make us dinner. This time around we had garlic seafood and garlic lime butter sauce it was absolutely amazing.Be sure to utilize this service while here. During the day after coming back from Sugar Beach . Janus took us around to his other properties. All of them are absolutely stunning. We already see ourselves booking another trip here soon!
Day 8 - pack up and head home ☹
Janus we want to thank you so much for sharing your island with us and for being absolutely an amazing host- we couldn’t have asked for a better stay.
