Situated in a fantastic location in Laborie in the south of st Lucia. This is new apartment underneath the owners newly renovated greenheart house. Kitchen with cooking facilities, fridge, microwave, wifi, and hot water shower in a wet room and large balcony overlooking the Caribbean Sea. A large mosquito net covers the double bed and the windows have shutters and burglar bars. Wonderful views of Laborie, the fishing boats, the jetty and the beach. The house sits on the side of a hill and its great to sit there to watch the sunset with a gin and tonic or rum punch in your hand! Laborie offers the real Caribbean and is not touristy. There are a few shops and a bakery and a couple of restaurants, all within 10 minutes walk from the apartment. Local transport runs frequently into vieux fort and costs only 2 dollars EC. Fishermen announce the arrival of fresh fish by blowing the conch shell and often you can see them sitting by the sea weaving their fishing baskets out of palm. Laborie is only 20 minutes from the main airport and offers a totally unique experience. We are in a very safe location and local and local people are very friendly. VAvi, my daughter in law, looks after the property for us and is willing to cook for guests, arrange for laundry to be done and generally help in anyway possible. I can recommend a good taxi driver who offers reasonable rates for collection from the airport to tours around the island. My son and his wife live nearby and Mark is able to organise trips round the island, fishing trips, diving etc. And now.sub winging which is proving to be very popular and great fun. Our apartment is perfect if you love wild birds. Because we are in a tropical garden, there are many varieties of wild birds around and they are very frequent visitors if they know food is around! They line up on the wire for their breakfast and will flit around all day in the banana trees. Many guests have told me how wonderful it is so see them so close as they are not worried by people. The location of the apartment is very good as it is private and guests can come and go as they please, The garden is fenced and accessed via a gate both bottom and top. The bottom gate is locked and guests will be given a key. You have to be reasonably fit to stay here. We are on the side of a hill and it's a walk down to the beach and village but some might find it a bit steep coming back up although it's not a long walk. Likewise car parking is up the path from the apartment.it's not possible to bring a vehicle right to the apartment. One complaint from visitors is that they spend too much time on the balcony soaking up the wonderful view of the sea which is ever changing and just watching boats, birds and soaking up the whole ambiance. They arrive with plans to do so many things and end up with the thought.we shall have to come again!!!
