About the Owner
Guestbook comments from the owner
My wife and I, our son and daughter in law and granddaughter stayed at the Villa for 8 days this summer. The stay was exceptional and we would recommend the Villa without qualification. The living room, dining area and pool area are all open air to the sea with world class views of the Pitons. The photos do not do it justice. The views are as good or better than at Jade Mountain, which is near by. The pool is small but construction is under way on a larger pool and 2 more bedrooms. Currently there are 5 bedrooms (4 air conditioned) and 3 baths. Although some of the reviews for some of the resorts had trouble with mesquitos, that was not our experience here.
The stay included a staff of 2 housekeepers, a cook and gardener.. Everything was very clean, with fresh linens daily. Also our laundry was done every day and neatly folded in our rooms on our return from our daily activities. The cook was wonderful making mostly local dishes which were delicious. She would do 3 meals a day if you wanted although at the beginning of the week we went over a menu and choose some meals to eat out.
There was internet access (bring your own laptop). Adult and child games, toys and DVDs were on premises.
The beach is a 10 minute drive and too far to walk. The Villa has a service pick you up at the airport and takes you to the Villa since it is difficult to find on your own. Our rental car was delivered to the villa the next day. I drove and we saw many of the island's attractions. However the driving is difficult to say the least. One local said if you can drive in St. Lucia you can drive anywhere. I have traveled all over the world and would agree. The road to the Villa is a real adventure but it is the same road to Jade Mountain.
This is an outstanding property especially for families and small groups. Don't let the driving keep you away.
5 based on 10 holidaymaker reviews
Eleven members of our extended family (including 5 teenagers from 13 to 18 years) enjoyed a wonderful week at Banana Quit Villa. The view was beautiful. The photos don't do the villa justice. It is even more beautiful in person. The staff kept the house very clean and did a wonderful job in the kitchen making anything we wanted. We had them prepare our breakfast and most evening meals. It was really nice to have a meal prepared for us on our arrival after a long day of travel. The pool was always extremely clean. We did not rent a car on the island but used the services of Bob's taxi which held all 11 of us. He was very knowledgeable about all the activities in our area. Bob also made arrangements with Mario and his boat for a day trip to the northern part of the island. It was nice to get out on the water and get another view of the island. We have traveled all over the world but the view from this house is at the top of our list. You won't be sorry if you book this house!
What a view!
Waking up to this view and breakfast cooked for you every morning was amazing! We stayed at the villa with 2 families of 4 and a good friend (9 people total) for my daughters' graduation from high school. Everything went perfect, from Bob the driver picking us up at the airport until he returned us to the airport 9 days later (great driver, we used him frequently). Joan, Ci (great cook) and Brenda (the staff) were all amazing. We had a hard time leaving this Bananaquit villa pool side. The resort's beach was a 15 minute walk down the hill (tough walk back, but Bob will pick you up) it was perfect and we took water taxis from there to sugar beach and up to Castries. Great Family fun!
Perfect house for
14 of us stayed at the Bananaquit House for a wedding at the nearby Viceroy at Sugar Beach and it could not have worked better. The house was welcoming and Joan and her staff were amazing. The meals were wonderful and it was a great way to eat the local cuisine. Joan even made a cake for one of the guests birthdays. The trabsportation associated with the house, Bobs taxi, was accommodating and huge convenience. The rooms were comfortable and private and the infinity pool was beautiful. We would not have done it differently at all.
Gorgeous Infinity Pool + Fabulous Staff : Great for Groups
14 of us stayed at the glorious BananaQuit house for a wedding and it was just absolutely perfect! The staff went above and beyond to serve us, Joan actually made a birthday cake by hand for our friends birthday! Joan and crew made delicious meals and were super attentive to any of our questions/asks. We spent a lot of our time outside lounging and in the gorgeous infinity pool w/ a view of the Pitons. . . tons of perfect photos. Loved coming home to a nicely made bed with flowers everywhere, including the bathrooms! Highly recommend this house for a group as there are many rooms. Definitely would come back. XO
Amazing views, attentive staff
This is a beautiful house with stunning views of the Piton Mountains in the most beautiful part of the island. We stayed there with two other families, including children, and had a blast. The infinity pool was magnificent and the nearby beach was the same beach used by the famous Jade Mountain Hotel. The staff was wonderfully attentive, cooking meals and cleaning the house every day to the same standards as a luxury hotel. They even placed flowers on all the beds and in the linens in the bathroom to make it feel like a tropical retreat. We utilized the car service that was associated with the house, and I would highly recommend this as the roads in St. Lucia, including the one leading up to the house, can be treacherous, and the driver was most accommodating. Because Soufriere is very lush and jungle-like, I recommend bringing hard core bug spray (none of that organic stuff as it simply doesn't work). Overall, we had an amazing and relaxing time and it felt very exotic due to the views of the nearby Piton Mountains and the lush foliage on this part of the island.
Stunning villa - incredible and fun times!
11 of us stayed at Bananaquit House for my wedding and it could have not been more amazing. The villa is beautiful with plenty of space and the infinity pool was spectacular. Our friends and family traveled from Australia, UK and the US and all agreed it was one of the best places they ever stayed in. The staff were wonderful especially Brian the villa manager who answered all my questions prior to arrival. We had quite a few meals at the house prepared by the lovely cook and the food was fantastic and we loved sampling the local creole food (better than most restaurants we visited in St Lucia). We hired a 4x4 but also used Bob's taxi service who was great and very accommodating. We also had Maura, the masseuse come to the house one morning and had a lovely massage by the pool (highly recommended).
The villa is perfect for couples, big groups and family. We had other friends rent villas nearby so we go to see quite a few but the infinity pool at Bananaquit was unbeatable. Waking up every day staring at the Pitons was unforgettable. We can't wait to come back in the future!
