We just loved the apartment + the panoramic views from every window + the terrace. I can’t believe what the hotels charge for the same view! Janus was a great host + we will definitely be back.
We stopped in St.Lucia for 3 days on our way to St.Lucia to do a liveaboard sailing cruise. We were hoping for a few days of R+R and that’s exactly what we got! I will admit that we were not ambitious in our exploring, but we did manage to get to Anse Chastenet & Anse Mamin on our first full day to the Sulphur springs + mineral spa/ diamond waterfall on or 2nd day. Like many who have stayed here, we preferred Anse Mamin.
We got there late in the day (around 2pm) + were able to rent two of the hotels lounge chairs under a palapa for $33 US. We were told they don’t usually rent them to non-guests but luckily 2 guests had just vacated them when we arrived, so they were happy to rent it to us. We stayed just before sunset & then headed back it was peaceful + wonderful!
The next day we headed into town around mid-afternoon + went to the Sulphur springs at 3pm hoping to miss the cruise ship crowds. The crowd was light + we loved the mud bath experience! Afterward, we had just enough time to hit diamond falls + the mineral baths. It was a short 5-mins walk to the falls + the walk to the botanical gardens along the way was lovely.
The public mineral baths were closed but they had our private bath room, so we decided to do that it was well worth $7 per person! so relaxing we got a couple of rim punches from the café + took them into the private hut with us. It was a great day to unwind!
We visited Ruby’s pizza twice during our stay + a little disappointed they didn’t have pizza either time but the food we did have was excellent + the service was fabulous. We just loved the apartment + the panoramic views from every window + the terrace. Well worth the price! I can’t believe what the hotels charge for the same view! Janus was a great host + we will definitely be back.
What a splendid week/ we are sad to say goodbye but could not have asked for a more lovely holiday! Janus was so friendly and the apartment met all our needs! Best beaches sugar beach & Anse Mamin
Best Restaurants; mango Tree & Boucan
Thanks Again!! 😊

We Were very impressed with Apt. 1. Wonderful view particularly and Janus is an excellent host and very professional in looking after his guests. We arrived late the first day, having stopped at the supermarket en route as suggested. The following day we walked to the Botanical Gardens and waterfall which was worth the visit. The rest of the day we spent in Soufriere. Zaka’s for coffee, Orlandos for a lovely lunch and then just relax at the beach with a rum punch.
Day 2- we went to Sulphur Springs which was fun and walked down mango bay for lunch which was great and into town with a stop at Belle View Bar and beach bar for the rest of the afternoon.
Our last day- sadly janus arranged a taxi to take us to Anse Chastanet and up to Rodney Bay.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will highly recommend Janus and Sapphire Apt. or may come back to stay at one of his other properties. Nothing was too much trouble.
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.
