“Safer in Nature” at a private villa in sunny St Lucia

COVID CertificateCrowds and poorly-ventilated spaces (such as indoors) are widely considered to be the riskiest places for getting COVID-19. So instead of skipping your vacation or worrying about mingling with lots of people at a hotel, enjoy the glorious St Lucian weather at a private villa with just a few staff members!  Bask in the sunshine by the pool or enjoy lots of outdoor activities. And our indoors is well-ventilated – Villa Grand Piton was designed to catch the breezes and bring them inside.  Although no one can guarantee zero exposure risk, it’s “Safer in Nature”!

Tourist restrictions

Tourists must stay at COVID-certified accommodations (like Villa Grand Piton), test negative for COVID prior to their arrival, use COVID-certified transportation (our driver is certified), and can only participate in tours and activities that have been COVID-certified.  Social distancing and masks are required, too.

Please read the official COVID-19 site for more detailed information.

Allowed activities

Nearby activities/destinations that are currently available to villa guests: two nearby beaches, snorkeling and diving, boat tours, Diamond waterfalls and gardens, ATV rides, the mud baths at the volcano, Tet Paul Nature Trail, chocolate tour, and the Gros Piton hike.  Further away, there is zip lining, horseback riding, and Segway tours through the Rodney Bay hills.

How this impacts your stay

The main differences to pre-COVID times are that you’ll have to stick to an itinerary since reservations are required for many activities, and you can’t go to grocery stores or bars.

We’ve recently secured access to six nearby restaurants (including Caille Blanc, Dasheene at Ladera and Boucan at Hotel Chocolate) and are working on access to a third beach.

Come and see what makes St Lucia so special

idyllic Soufriere

Soufriere is the heart of St Lucia, with the iconic Pitons rising up from the deep blue Caribbean sea and the best snorkeling, diving, and other outdoor activities on the island. You won’t bump into a lot of other tourists, as there are just a few resorts and villas dotting the nearby hillsides, tucked into the rainforest. The village of Soufriere is fairly small with a few stores and restaurants and bars. It’s the perfect blend of options – lots of activities and adventures, or just restore your soul with the serenity of the scenery and the sea.

The “touristy” part of St Lucia is Rodney Bay in the north. It’s a great choice if your ideal vacation is lazing on the beach with a cold drink, and wandering in and out of bars and restaurants.

The two parts of the island are a 90-120 minute drive apart on a tortuous and twisty road. So we suggest you decide what your ideal vacation is, and “stay where you want to play”.  Contact us if you need help deciding.

great sea and land activities

Are you adventurous? Dive the depths of the sea, climb the heights of mountains – or do both! Zipline. Ride ATVs or horses or mountain bikes through plantation ruins. Go deep-sea fishing.

Or do you prefer something more relaxing? Tour a cocoa plantation. Visit a drive-in volcano and mud baths. Search for dolphins on a catamaran. Snorkel. Relax on a beach. Or just float in the pool and enjoy the view.

We hope you enjoy this short video that some past guests made of their vacation.

an uncommon vacation rental

Most vacation rentals make you do and supply everything yourself. Not at Villa Grand Piton! At our home, we include almost everything you need in the rate, including the use of our “adventure gear” (beach chairs, snorkel equipment, etc.) and housekeeping.

Cooking, driving and masseuse services are available. Our cook even offers a meal plan.

We also allow children (many accommodations in the area don’t). We have child-sized snorkel gear and some child-appropriate games and movies. (Ages 5+, please, for safety reasons.)

Think of us as a private hotel – we do!

an uncommonly beautiful vacation rental

We’ve got million-dollar views, and we’ve worked hard to make the villa live up to those. The villa is bright and open and airy, with high ceilings and lots of space in every room. It’s “open-air”, with the interior walls not going to the ceiling and no glass over the windows. Instead, the windows are covered with heavy wooden louvers that you can adjust to capture the breeze from the adjacent rainforest.

Over the past few years, we’ve replaced, repaired, renovated, or refreshed nearly 90% of the furnishings. Beds from Pottery Barn, elegant curved desks from Grandin Road, pillows and floats from Frontgate, Kingsley-Bate teak outdoor furniture, custom-finished accent tables, dining chairs from Ballard Designs, even a custom-made hickory and iron dining table all grace our home.   You won’t find my grandma’s old dishes in our cupboards – it’s pure white bone china and real crystal wineglasses.  

You’ll feel right at home from the first moment you set foot in the house.

outdoor living at its best

St Lucia weather is perfect for outdoor living. Days filled with sunshine and warm nights with infinitely-starry skies and the breeze rustling in the leaves will entice you to spend your entire vacation outside.

Our outdoor space is perfect to do just that! The best view of the Pitons on the island. Incredible sunsets over the Caribbean. Double rainbows, sailboats, cruise ships, yachts and even a “pirate” ship all passing by. 

Our spacious pool has foam floats and six chaise lounges surrounding it for sunning.  Use the lounges after dark to watch for shooting stars, marvel at the Milky Way, or just be astounded at the number of stars you can see in the inky-black sky.

We have a covered back deck with side tables and chairs to just relax and have a beverage. And there’s a spacious covered gazebo with a large table and chairs for dining or just enjoying the view or the company of your loved ones.

places to eat and shop

There are numerous restaurants within a short drive from us – from food trucks to fine dining.

In the nearby village of Soufriere, there is a small grocery which carries a limited selection of alcoholic beverages, a bakery, a butcher, an art/coffee shop, and a daily open-air market for fruits, vegetables, and fresh fish. Soufriere also has a pharmacy, a small souvenir shop and some other small shops. Soufriere’s stores serve mostly the locals, so there are only a few shops dedicated to tourists.

More extensive shopping is available further away. There is not much duty-free shopping on St Lucia.

perfect for a DXpedition

Looking for your next DXepedition destination? St Lucia is a prime candidate, and J68HZ has built a world-class radio station at Villa Grand Piton.

Are you – or your family – tired of roughing it in a tent or a shack or a house you wouldn’t pick for your vacation if it didn’t have a radio station? Now you don’t have to sacrifice staying in a beautiful home just to use a radio station. Upgrade to Villa Grand Piton and let everyone enjoy the vacation while you DX!

5/5
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!
