Outstanding family vacation
My family of 13 (9 adults and 4 children) spent 4 amazing days. The house has a breathtaking view of the bay. Pascale was very responsive prior to our arrival. Carlos, the caretaker, helped us organize daily trips, cooked us a delicious dinner and provided valuable local information. I also highly recommend Smally ‘s transportation services. He is great. We would love to return to this villa soon.
Carlos and Miranda were extremely friendly and offered good ideas and activities to do around the island! Also had the chance to meet the owner and she was very delightful and hospitable. We had a great time and love the secluded area, but enjoy the proximity to the restaurants and Marigot Bay. Hope to come back soon! Thank you for a great Christmas holiday Villa Makambu.
We stayed at this property it was a wonderful experience. Carlos the personal attendant took great care of us. I can't wait to come back to this property
Stayed there for a week with 3 other couples. We had both floors! The villa is beautiful and very well maintained. Fully stocked with all necessities. Josee and Carlos are such a huge benefit at the villa. Josee helped us with excursions and basic island information. Carlos cooked for us twice and the meals were delicious. He also took us on a book trip one day to visit other parts of the island. Smiley was waiting for us at the airport and stopped by the grocery store on our way to the villa. He also escorted us on two day trips to different parts of the island. I would not recommend renting a car as the terrain is hilly with winding roads.....use Smiley. Everyone knows him and he gives you a personal touch to your adventure. We really enjoyed the open verandas and the pool. We had housekeeping 3 days and every detail was touched! The view is spectacular. We had dinner twice in Marigot Bay which was fun and very tasty. Such a lovely place!! Pascale was very easy to work with and we emailed several times.
First class place
We stayed at Villa Makambu in March 2013. The place is all what the listing says it is plus more.
Great location above the Marigot Bay with a stunning views of the bay and the Carribean Sea, The bay with its restaurants and shops is only a short walk away (coming back is up hill though, so keep that in mind when ordering the next drink). The whole island is very safe at all times. The Marigot Bay is the best part of the island in our opinion. There are couple of beaches within a walking distance (a small secluded cove and the bay beach), but we would recommend to rent a car (preferably 4x4) and explore other parts of the island. There are some nice beaches to the north (Pigeon Island), but the best beaches and best snorkeling can be found near Soufriere in the south. It is not a large island and the drive makes a nice experience, especially the winding road along the west cost. The Pitons and the volcano are in the Soufriere area as well, which makes it a nice sight-seeing trips combined with some beach experience.
The villa itself is very modern and very nicely laid out. The bedrooms are large with a lot of air, the bathrooms are well equipped and very clean, so are the kitchens. The appliances are new and clean, there is a lot of utensils, plates, glasses, pots and pans. There were seven of us in the party, but the villa has plenty of room for more. The pool is a good size with lots of room around for beach chairs.
Jose, the property manager, can provide great insider information about the best of island’s attractions, also those off the beaten track. She seems to know every person on the island and is also well known among the locals. Every one of her tips turned out to be a good one. She lives close by and can help resolve any issues that may arise (although I would not expect any).
The big bonus is the villa care taker, Carlos. Carlos lives next door and is available pretty much 7/24. He is also a great chef and quite willing to share his talent. He can teach you how to cook some local specialties or cook them for you. Carlos also knows the local fisherman and can help you buy a fresh fish right off the boat. He has a great sense of humor and also knows everybody on the island. An island tour with Carlos on his boat is a must.
We had a great time in St/ Lucia and we are certain you will enjoy it too.
The property is within walking distance of Marigot Bay & Marina with all the bars and restaurants that the location has to offer. There is also a five star resort called Marigot Bay Resort and Marina that allows non-residents access which features many amenities including a large pool with swim up bar & sushi bar. A great day out for everybody.
