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.

Amazing property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Dan has done a fantastic job designing and constructing the perfect romantic getaway cottage in the West Indies. The whole concept of the house makes you want to kick back and let go of your first world worries as you first enter. The pool was awesome and we used just about every outdoor seating area at some point in our vacation. Sabina who looks after the house was an absolute delight, charming and generous and made sure our stay was perfect. I highly recommend visiting the Pink Plantation for lunch. And with a car this is an ideal location to explore beautiful and super friendly St Lucia. Best holiday ever.

Absolutely amazing

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the most amazing trips my wife and I have ever been on. Dealing with the owner Daniel was very easy, along with Sabina who takes care of the property here. The White Turtle was very clean and the king sized beds are very comfortable. The kitchen includes everyrhing you need to make breakfast lunch or dinner. The pool was great and has full sun the entire day with outdoor speakers (huge plus). Marigot Bay is only a 15 min walk from the house (easier going down then coming up). I found the area to be very safe and the St Lucian people are very friendly. Sabina who takes care of the property was great as well, she helped us with a few things during our trip. Sabina also has recommendations on Taxi services which were great for us. Food prices are really no different than back home in Canada. I would recommend renting a vehicle (small size SUV) for the trip. We used it almost everyday to go to different places on the Island, pick up groceries etc. I fully recommend trying St Lucias Piton beer, it's amazing. I can tell you that the pictures of the White Turtle don't do it any justice. Waking up every morning and then watching the sunset was truly awesome and a big part of how amazing this trip was. I would recommend this property to any one coming for some rest and relaxation.

Reclusive Serenity

  • 4 of 5

If, you need a tropical escape then the White Turtle is the place. The villa is centrally located between Rodney Bay and Soufriere. The Marigot Bay Marina has a good selection of restaurants. However, the villa's kitchen is fully equipped to keep you in to watch the sunrise and sunset at meal time.

Sabina, is amazing villa manager and local host guide....

Our stay at the White Turtle

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what can you say. My husband and I were in the need of some desperate rest and relaxation. At the White Turtle we truly received what we were looking for. This home is so lovely and peaceful with all the modern comforts. We came from California so to spend time in such a lush environment was fantastic. Blacka and Sabina were a great addition to our stay. If you needed anything they were there, no problem. We highly recommend the White Turtle.

Stunning views in this house

  • 4 of 5

Sabina is a very helpful lady. She has everything ready for you. She greets you upon your arrival and is full of information about what to do and who to contact. The house is very nice and the pool is wonderful to swim in. The outside shower is amazing!!!!

The owner just installed A/C downstairs in the two bedrooms, thank goodness or we would have been miserable. The humidity can be oppressive.

There is a sweet little cat who shares the outdoors with you. All she wants is food and attention, we loved her.

The private beach is not a five minute walk during the raining season, it is slippery and muddy. Better off to drive to it. The Marina is also not a 15 minute walk unless you run in marathons.

We had a great time on our vacation and this house is definitely worth renting. Be sure and bring bug spray as you will need it.

Beautiful and quiet

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the White Turtle in June 2016 so it was off season for the island. The house was amazing. The pictures don't do justice to the sweeping view and breeze you enjoy sitting on the balcony with quad folding patio doors fully open so the living room connects to the outside living space. We sat on the balcony and enjoyed the sounds of the tree canopy bugs and the waves crashing onto the beach below for hours. The beach is about a 5 min walk away down a steep and slippery trail. No mosquitos during our stay, but plenty of cans of bug spray around if we needed it. No AC in the house, but there's normally a breeze to keep it cool.

As far as the house, it was very clean and well stocked. A cell phone was provided by the house to make local calls and reach Sabina if there are any issues. The kitchen has all the conveniences of home that you'll need and appliances were all in good condition. When we ran out of dish washing soap the one day, a call to Sabina quickly brought more soap. The pool is very nicely kept, private, and relaxing. There is a washer and dryer, but it's pretty tiny so be prepared to do several loads if you are doing a lot of laundry.

Getting to the house was easy. The welcome sheet that Dan provides was spot on. We used one of the car services recommended by Dan and Sabina in the welcome packet and had a little bit of an issue getting our rental car at Hewanorra airport since the rental car isn't located onsite, but the locals at the airport made a couple calls for us and we were on our way. The roads were all fine, but they get fairly small and rough once you get off the main loop and head towards Marigot Bay. We felt very safe in Marigot and at the house. When we arrived at the house we were welcomed by Sabina who was absolutely a gem. She probably visited with us an hour answering all our questions.

Marigot Bay itself is a bit on the pricey side, but we found reasonably priced food and drinks just up the hill on the road into Marigot where more of the locals hang out at. We primarily shopped at the Massey grocery store (formerly Super J) in Marigot and it was almost like shopping at our local Kroger store in the US as far as variety, but the prices are obviously a bit higher since you're on an island. You can buy liquor at Massey, but the rum is alot cheaper at the nearby distillery and they also had cheaper bottles of name brand wines than Massey.

Cannot go wrong with this house!!! Amazing!!

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!!!!!!

David and Amanda Walker.

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