Unfortunately whilst I was here the tropical storm Dorian took effect!! Janus brought a flashlight and got someone to deliver food. Janus (thoughtfulness and reliability) made this trip well worth it.
I came back from Dominica to St. Lucia for three days before returning to London.
In my short stay here Janus was a fantastic Host. He organized me on affordable taxi from Castries and another taxi to UVF airport. I arrived late on the Sunday and Janus had left some food juice and water for my arrival.
Whilst I was here I got to visit Soufriere Beach Park which was lovely but fairly quiet and Anse Chastanet which was excellent. The food was delicious and the food was spectacular.
Unfortunately whilst I was here the tropical storm Dorian took effect which meant we weren’t meant to leave our residence after 6pm. Janus brought a flashlight and got someone to deliver food. Janus (thoughtfulness and reliability) made this trip well worth it
Will definitely return to the lovey apartment and hope to meet Janus again soon
Good luck to all of you that come to St. Lucia.

We came to St. Lucia for our Honeymoon . It has bee one of the best trips we’ve made. During our first week we stayed in Royalton St. lucia Aug. 11- 19th (north, gros isalet) Then did our second week here at Sapphire in Soufriere. Here are our top Do’s & Don’ts
P.s the hill going down is the best way to get to town.
Little black dog mom across the street is very friendly. We nicknamed her ‘’mama’’ She loves attention.
P.s Everything we did on here is accessible with google maps.

Good luck and enjoy St. Lucia

We had a great time here in Soufriere for the second half of our honeymoon in St. Lucia. (First half was in Marigot Bay)
Diamond Botanical Gardens & Waterfall – Beautiful- walking distance from here
Soufriere Beach by Humming Bird Resort- walking distance, lovely beach and water feels great and refreshing, we went 3x
Snorkeling at Sugar Beach – incredible, so many fish, feel like swimming in an aquarium. Took a water taxi there for us$40 so didn’t have to pay an entrance fee.
Gros Piton Hike- guide sets an easy steady pace, so not so hard if you are in shape, but coming down can be a bit tricky so we were a bit sore the next day, but worth it, great view and accomplishment hiking in a rainforest.
Sulphur Springs & mud baths- felt great after the Gros Piton hike relaxing, great for skin.
Fedos – affordable, good food, close
Gens Mwen- along water front, very good and affordable- saltfish and fids and chicken roti, cheap.
Pier 28 – great wings – cheap
Belle Vue-great calalou soup and fish fries but pricey for more entrees
Zaka’s – great coffee and smoothies
Mango tree-was our spurge – buffet ($50 per person) was incredibly delicious with an outstanding view of the Pitit Piton
Street foods – fun to try! Fried bakes, sandwiches
Bakery on the street down to the beach- great bread and scones
Bought candies and fruits, peanut bottle types. Treats from a lady at I think it was called carneys bar on the way down to the beach (buy fruit from the street)
Thank you Janus and your team for a great stay! You all were very helpful with rides and reservations! Very friendly and helpful team we had an awesome time. Thank you!

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.
