Trip Report St. Lucia Trip Report – A Snapshot

Jump to last reply

Early 60s couple – an early February break from winter with 11 days in a villa rental in the Bois d’Orange – between Rodney Bay & Castries near the Windjammer Resort. We rented the Cinnamon Beach Villa. A large very private house on a hill with great views of Trouya Point & the sea beyond. It fit us like a glove. The negatives posted in recent TA reviews have been attended to.

Best restaurants of the trip: Jacques Waterfront Dining in Rodney Bay. Orlando’s in Soufrière.
Best tourist activity: Tet Paul Trail.
Best local rum: Chairman’s Reserve Forgotten Casks
Best supermarket in Rodney Bay: Super J
Weather: Constant mid-80s during the day for the whole time we were there. Leave your sweaters at home. Brief near-daily showers rolled through with one unusual 24 hour spell of rain.
Words to the wise: If you rent a villa where they don’t spray, come prepared to deal with mosquitoes at nightfall.
