Fodor's Review

Tidy housekeeping cottages with gingerbread-laced façades are steps from the beach at this family-run establishment 3 mi (5 km) north of the airport in Castries. The self-catering units have either one or two bedrooms and fully equipped kitchens and are decorated with handcrafted wooden furniture. A pair of cottages date back to World War II (they were dismantled and moved here in 1958 from Beanfield Air Base in Vieux Fort). One of those cottages has been occupied several

times by one of St. Lucia's two Nobel laureates, the poet Sir Derek Walcott, during holiday visits. In fact, Villa Beach Cottages has lots of repeat guests—couples, families, and groups of friends. The Honeymoon Cottage, is a duplex; the sitting–dining room and kitchen are on the ground floor, and a spiral staircase leads to the upstairs bedroom and bath. Units are cozy and fairly close together, but each has a large balcony (with a hammock) facing the water, guaranteeing glorious sunset views every evening. Coconuts, a small open-air restaurant, serves meals only on request. There's a small pool and a mini-mart on site for the convenience of guests; a supermarket, bank, post office, and other shops are nearby.
