Our household staff and drivers are vaccinated!
Finally! "Freedom" for the fully vaccinated
Fully vaccinated travelers can move around like they did pre-COVID: book rental cars, dine at local restaurants, go to bars, beach-hop, and go shopping.

not fully vaccinated minors
👦For minors that are not fully vaccinated, they may take a PCR test the day after arrival and move around with their fully vaccinated family/guardians after a negative result from the PCR test.
All tourists must:
- Test negative for COVID prior to their arrival.
- Stay at a COVID-certified accommodation (like Villa Grand Piton)
- Be monitored regularly for COVID symptoms
- Adhere to standard protocols in public (mask wearing, social distancing, hand washing)
If your group isn't fully vaccinated:
Everyone fully vaccinated? Skip this section!
You will have to stay within the “bubble” of COVID-certified accommodations, transportation, activities, and restaurants. Our driver is part of the bubble (but renting a vehicle is not). You will only be allowed to go to COVID-certified places (see list below). Bars and grocery stores are not in the bubble.
Nearby activities: Soufriere and Malgretoute beaches, snorkeling and diving, boat tours, Diamond waterfalls and gardens, ATV rides, the mud baths at the volcano, zip lining, Tet Paul Nature Trail, chocolate tour, and the Gros Piton hike.
Further away: horseback riding, Pigeon Island national park and historical site, and Segway tours through the Rodney Bay hills.
There are seven nearby COVID-certified restaurants for in-person dining: Pavilion (Caille Blanc), Dasheene (Ladera), Boucan (Rabot Estates), Mango Tree (Stonefield), Green Fig, Bamboo (Fond Doux) and Orlando’s. Note that the first four sometimes enforce an age restriction of 13 and older for their diners.
An uncommonly beautiful vacation rental
Our villa is light, bright and spacious, with an “open-air” design* to let the breezes in. Since 2015 we’ve replaced, repaired, renovated, or refreshed almost everything. No thrift-shop dishes in our cupboards – just pure white bone china and crystal wineglasses.
house is different from most houses
🏠Open-air houses are designed for air flow: no glass over windows, interior walls may not go to the ceiling, and some are missing a wall entirely! Many tropical houses and resorts are built in this open style.
Our home has all four walls and heavy louvers and screens over the windows.
Insects can get in and sound can carry, so we have mitigation measures: mosquito traps/spraying and radios and TVs for "cover-up" noise.
A Few of Our Five-Star Reviews
Villa Grand Piton cemented our desire to travel to St Lucia after reading about the villa, its reviews, and looking at the photos time and again. The peacefulness is beyond words. St. Lucia should be a vacation destination for those who wish to get away, and Villa Grand Piton is the benchmark for a perfect vacation. Just go there and be amazed.
Amazing property with breathtaking views. From the first communication I knew we were in good hands. We felt so at home with the staff. The pictures don’t do the view justice. It is amazing. Junior and Billy know what they are doing - they are guide, translator, concierge, and don’t-hassle-my-guests sentry all in one. Great week. Best vacation!
The villa itself is wonderful and the most fully equipped villa we have ever stayed at. The entire staff are wonderful. The view from the villa is simply surreal. We have stayed at many villas - this villa is at the top of the list. We all agreed that we would go back in a heart beat!
We had the most amazing week. Your home is so relaxing and the views, wow what can I say... aaahhhhh. It never gets old. We hope to be back some day. The staff is now like family which we will miss.
Terrific staff and unbelievable view. Great diving and great weather. ATV tour, sunset cruise, daylong boat tour of the island, mountain climbing, beach time and happy hour all there for you.
Everything was better than we expected! Better than any resort for sure! Nothing was not thought of. Great job and home!
Soufriere, St Lucia
The perfect Caribbean location
Whether you desire rejuvenation, adventure, or romance, St Lucia has what you yearn for.
Voted* #1 for both the “Best Place to Visit in the Caribbean” and “Best Honeymoon Destination” and #3 for “Best Winter Vacation”.
Just a 3-1/2 hour flight from Miami.
Here’s a short video that some of our guests made of their vacation.
Great land and sea activities
Dive, deep-sea fish, climb a Piton (those two mountains in the pictures), zipline, ride an ATV or horse or mountain bike.
Prefer less adventure? Tour a cocoa plantation, visit a drive-in volcano and mud baths or hot springs, watch for dolphins on a catamaran, snorkel, or just chill at the beach or by our pool.
Soufriere is the heart of St Lucia, with the impossibly photogenic Pitons rising from the deep blue Caribbean. With just a few resorts and villas dotting the nearby hillsides, you won’t get crowded by a lot of tourists.
Lots of the best activities in St Lucia are in or near Soufriere and Villa Grand Piton. Or just relax and rejuvenate at the villa!
