Overview

About the property

Surrounded by lush vegetation and humming birds, just a 2 minute walk from the beach, poolside La Bonita is an idyllic setting for families, couples and honeymooners – the perfect base for all activities or a tranquil relaxed vacation.

In the interests of conservation and protection of the environment, we at Cotton Bay charge our guests for the electricity they consume during their stay. We would recommend therefore that windows are closed when using air conditioning, before leaving the villa and on final departure to minimise your costs.

Reviews:

"Villa Bonita is a great air conditioned villa in its own excellent setting with a magnificent swimming pool. Access to the local beach, Cas En Bas, is via a charming wooden walkway that leads to the cocktails! Majorie's is an authentic beach bar that does its own cocktails including, of course, lots of rum - this is the Caribbean! On the beach you can relax in a tranquil environment or take lessons in kite surfing, wind surfing or sailing. Our daughter and son in law had just sailed across the Atlantic in their Sigma 31 yacht and we used the villa as the celebration venue. Overall a great time in a wonderful setting. Great memories."

"We had a wonderful break in the last week of Jan/first week of Feb when the weather in the UK was truly terrible. In St Lucia it was warm enough to have all our meals outside but even in the middle of the day was not uncomfortably hot. Villa Bonita is in a very quiet spot surrounded by lush vegetation; literally a few steps from the pool and a short walk to the beach. There's lots to do if you want to including water sports, horse riding, golf and walking but we spent most of our time chilling out with good books and going to nice restaurants in the evening. Our favourite activity was walking to Pigeon Island which has stunning views and tucking into a truly delicious lamb roti."

"We spent our honeymoon at Villa Bonita and absolutely loved it. From the minute we arrived we quickly slipped into the Carribean relaxed way of life, this was down to the attentiveness of the staff, the quiet and peaceful location and of course the beautiful pool, which was a real highlight for us and a welcome relief from the incredible sun accompanied by the pool side cocktails from the bar. Every morning we enjoyed breakfast on the private patio as the birds serenaded us. We hired a car which allowed us the freedom of the island and opportunity to visit nearby restaurants in Rodney Bay, Castries and Gros Islet, and the cocktails from the Rodney Bay marina as the sun goes down is a must. We couldn't have wanted more from our Honeymoon, it was a holiday of a lifetime."

"Tranquil relaxing environment; idyllic setting. Villa Bonita is a comfortable, poolside, air-conditioned 2 bedroomed apartment with a lovely patio with a large dining table. 3 steps up to the magnificent pool, the largest on the island. Oh and the golf course so close by was a bit of a magnet! It's a 2 minute walk to Cas En Bas beach on the Atlantic coast for water sports and a paradise for kite surfers and windsurfers. We like cliff walks and horseriding. It's a 10 minute taxi ride to Rodney Bay for restaurants and the marina and visiting Pigeon Island – Jambe de Bois a personal favourite."

Interaction with Guests

We live in the UK, so you won't meet us out there! However Cotton Bay is a small, family-friendly holiday village and the housekeeper and the staff are very welcoming. It is gated and very secure.

Getting Around

Ernest is the best taxi man on the Island! +(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)

Loved it, wish we were still there

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at your place over the holidays. The unit itself looks just as good as the pictures and we enjoyed the pool very much. We enjoyed eating outside which is pretty much what you needed to do.

Around dusk the bugs were terrible, we think they were sand flies, these are very common throughout the carribean unfortunately we must have been there at a bad time. The complex management brought in pest control and the entire area was sprayed, unfortunately for us that was done on the last day before we left.

Wi-Fi was down when we arrived but Ann (who is great btw) apologized and had it fix by the 2nd day.

The coffee machine is actually an espresso machine which is fine unless you actually want a larger cup of coffee in the morning.

The reason why we gave 4 out of 5 was the beach. It is close for sure but it has not really been maintained. There was little room to sit, no loungers or umbrellas and seaweed everywhere. From what I understand the owners in the complex are beginning to pay for more upkeep and it looked as if they were starting to maintain that area again(heavy equipment started showing up to move boulders etc.), I'm not 100% sure what the plans are. Since we had a car we drove the 10-15 minutes to the beautiful beaches on the carribean side.

Although it's a hike from the airport we loved the location, 10 minutes to the grocery stores and nice beaches.

We would definitely recommend staying here to family or friends in the future!
