About the Owner
About Karen Byford
Our two holiday apartments in Marigot Bay are owned by the family and get used every year. Of course we want other people to enjoy them as much as we do. Taking a holiday in the Caribbean is so exciting but we understand it can also be a little daunting. That is why we have a local manager who meets and greets you on arrival, shows you around the apartment and immediate area. She is only a phone call away if something goes wrong or you need some advice on where to go or how to book something. We can also arrange airport transfers right to the door, pre arrival shopping if you have a late flight in and for those special occasions flowers or chocolates. We hope you book our apartment and wish you a wonderful holiday. Karen
Why Karen Byford chose St Lucia
Who would not want to buy a little piece of paradise on this wonderful Caribbean island? Our waterfront apartment has one of the best views in Marigot Bay. The location is simply stunning, clear blue waters surrounded by lush greenery, mega yachts drifting in and out of the marina and a slower pace of life we all dream of.
The Marina Village is an ideal base to explore or simply stay put for every day of your holiday. Whether you are seeking total relaxation, family fun and water activities or a romantic hideaway, there is something for everyone in Marigot Bay.

Activity and Interests
Sand spit beach is opposite the Marina Village and accessed within a few minutes by a water taxi. Usual beach facilities and restaurant with bar (happy hour for cocktails and regular music nights during the high season). There is also PADI diving instruction available. You can hire water sport equipment from the beach or a captained water taxi via our local English manager, take day trips scuba diving or go out to sea to look for dolphins and whales.
The nearest airport is G. FL. Charles Airport, in Castries approx. 24 miles away but the main international airport is located at Hewanorra, about an hours drive away. We can arrange for airport transfers on your behalf or you can of course easily hire a car from the airport or in the Marina Village. For those not wanting to drive then there are always lots of taxis parked nearby to visit the capital of Castries, the local towns, other beaches, the Pitons and further tourist attractions.
Marigot Bay is located within the district of Castries and a 20 minute drive takes you to the capital Castries where you will find shops, restaurants, a market and other facilities including a selection of shops by the dock with tax concessions. Marigot Bay is approx. 45 minutes from north Cap Estate and Rodney Bay with it lovely beaches and about 60 minutes from Soufrière and Vieux Fort. Unlike many of the holiday apartments in St. Lucia, you do not need a car here to get around Marigot Bay.
There is so much to do in St Lucia but it depends on the type of holiday you are seeking. Many of our guests enjoy the peace and quiet, relaxing on the balcony and watching the world go by at a slower pace. The popular St. Lucian saying 'Live Slow' is easy to adopt here. However, if you are looking for more energetic past times then try out scuba diving, hire a wind surf board or a boat, trek through the tropical forests or even try out the high zip wires. The landscape is stunning and varied, you will need a lot of storage space on your camera to capture endless beautiful scenes. The people are friendly, food is amazing and the sun usually shines down.
Testimonials from recent guests:
"A fantastic week!"
We spent a lovely week in Marigot Bay at the beginning of December 2012 with my wife and our best friends. The apartment was first rate, as were the support staff and amenities. The only gripe that we had was that we were only there for a week!!
(Alex, apartment 7a, December 2012)
"Perfect, peaceful relaxing gem of a hideaway"
We had the most amazing relaxing holiday at Marigot Bay, the apartment was stunning with every need accommodated for. A manager on hand to meet and greet and for any possible queries. Karen was extremely efficient and organised in arranging not only the booking but providing added information about the island and surrounding areas. If your looking for a quiet relaxing escape from it all, this is the perfect place.
