About the property

House in Marigot Bay, St Lucia - The White Turtle, Marigot Bay, St Lucia

The White Turtle is a luxury two bedroom house with private pool located in Marigot Bay, Saint Lucia. It is situated in one of the most beautiful locations of the Caribbean. Tucked away in an exclusive setting in Marigot Bay, it looks out over lush green forest and the bright aqua blue of the Caribbean sea.

The White Turtle is situated in Marigot Bay, the picturesque small inlet famously used as a filming location for the popular childrens film ‘Dr Doolittle’. The house is a 15 minute walk from the main Marigot marina and neighbouring La Bas beach, and only a 5 minute stroll down to the secluded cove of Trou Roland.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such an amazing trip and it was made all the better for having such a lovely house to come home to at the end of the day.

Sophie McCarthy.

A beautiful house in a great location. Sitting on the terrace watching the sunset with a gin and tonic just can’t be beat!

Paul Fuller.

The house has great views of the sea, friendly visiting birds, and the best bit was the pool which the children loved!!!!!!

Stunning views, beautiful pool, stylish design and immaculate presentation - The White Turtle has it all.

This was a long overdue and planned for 2nd honeymoon after 27 years. As such expectations were very high and as the time came closer I began to get nervous, how could anything live up to such hype? Delighted to say that our stay at the White Turtle did. Beautifully laid out, magnificent views, wonderful pool. The love and attention to details that Dan took in building is seen everywhere. The thoughtfulness for his guests needs was also apparent. Honestly there was nothing we looked for that we did not find in the villa, extra towels, well equiped kitchen, comfortable beds with excellent linens.

Very happy to recommend the White Turtle.

Perfect and Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This home is exactly as shown in the pictures. It is a beautiful retreat set in the lush hills of Marigot Bay overlooking the ocean. It was furnished with everything you need and more. The bedrooms are incredible comfortable with balcony views throughout. The pool is wonderful and inviting with an outdoor barbecue where we had Chef Davey cook a fresh fish from Castries. Davey was an outstanding cook who prepared healthy delicious meals including a BBQ on the beach which had amazing snorkeling! I highly recommend Davey if you want a great meal and wonderful company as he can also provide guide service. He took us to the Pitons and Sulphur Springs -- wow, a wonderful day!

Thanks Dan for sharing your home with us!! This has been the best trip ever!

Amazing villa St.. Lucia

  • 5 of 5

Loved the White Turtle. Three of us stayed three nights and would have stayed longer if we had the time! Great open layout with tons of windows, very private. Amazing view, and couldn't get enough of the pool! Everything we needed was available for our use - linens, kitchen supplies, coffee maker, dishwasher, stove/ oven/ microwave, etc. Marigot Bay is a beautiful location, the host provided some really nice suggested activities and we had a wonderful time. I would definitely stay here again, highly recommend.

Very pleasant villa in a quiet place with great views!

  • 5 of 5

We have greatly enjoyed staying in White Turtle during our vacation on St Lucia. The house is very well designed, airy and bright. The upper patio broadly communicates with living room upstairs and offers a view of the Caribbean and the lush green hillside to the south with pretty villas nestling on it. The lower patio has comfortable loungers and was my favorite place to listen to the bird songs in the mornings. The bedrooms are on the lower floor which is cooler than the upper floor. The powerful ceiling fans and stand-alone fans create a gentle breeze for a pleasant night. We stayed in the villa in the first half of April and the humidity was quite tolerable - even for us who are accustomed to air-conditioned dwellings in the hot and humid Louisiana. The mosquitos were not a problem and we only encountered a few. Nevertheless, the bedrooms are well protected against insects and are equipped with fine mosquito nets as well as effective sprays. All the amenities were fully functional. Ms. Sabina is a very pleasant individual who was very helpful both prior to our arrival and during our stay - it was delightful to deal with her. She was always quick to answer any questions and help with any concerns. The close proximity of the villa to the Marigot Bay offers easy access to some of the best restaurants on the island and to boat tours of all flavors. Water taxis can take you to all the beaches and other important sites along the beautiful west coast of the island. If opting for car hire from the international airport at Vieux Fort, drive along the east coast as suggested in the instructions that come with your villa rental - it is a much a easier, safer and less time consuming drive than taking the west coast road to the villa - we found this suggestion from Daniel invaluable. The island has a lot to offer in terms of various activities and the villa has many brochures and helpful suggestions that we have put to good use. Our stay was unfortunately abbreviated by one full day due to a canceled flight by American Airlines but we tried to make up for the lost time the best we could and the weather was luckily cooperating - it was sunny and calm through our vacation.

Vacation gem

This property delivers on all that is promised. The private setting, beautiful water view and modern open layout say "vacation" the moment you walk in the door. The kitchen is well equipped and the bedrooms spacious and comfortable.The house manager Sabina lives in the neighborhood and is quick to respond to any questions you may have.There is a marina and cute restaurants within walking distance.

The perfect villa in St. Lucia

  • 5 of 5

We (three adults) stayed at the White Turtle. It was such a beautiful and peaceful villa--the photos did not do it much justice. The pool was of a perfect size, great for morning and evening laps. There was even a nice outdoor shower for a quick rinse after using the pool. The view on the first floor balcony was spectacular--I especially enjoyed sipping a cold drink, while reading a booking and watching the sun set at the Marigot Bay. Beds were comfortable. Many amenities were provided for. There was even a welcome packet with pamphlets and brochures about excursions and activities on the island. Sabina welcomed us to the villa, showed us around, and graciously answered our many questions about getting around the island. We concluded that we will definitely return to St. Lucia and to the White Turtle. What a great trip and what a great villa!
