Prices presented are valid as of January 1, 2020 and are for a party of four or fewer using our driver. The total for driver service is $740 US for this itinerary. Please note – not all the activities are currently available due to COVID restrictions (for instance, Anse Chastanet is currently reserved for guests of the Anse Chastanet and Jade Mountain resorts).
arrival day ($80 US)
Junior greets you at the airport and gets you settled in his comfortable vehicle. If you wish to get your toes in the sand right away or enjoy a drink or a snack while on a beach, you can stop at the Reef Restaurant, just a few minutes’ drive from the airport and on the way to the villa.
Next, pick up some beverages and food. Head to Uptowns Liquors and pick up some adult beverages. Stop at the grocery store in La Tourney for snacks and sodas. If you plan on doing a lot of your own cooking, you might want to get some “real” groceries, too (the La Tourney grocery has a larger selection that our local grocery).
Then settle in and enjoy the ride to the villa. You’ll be especially glad you aren’t driving when you get to the last 10 minutes and the infamous Anse Chastanet Road!
Savor Doxie’s rum punch while she shows you around the villa, then enjoy Doxie’s roti for dinner while you watch the sun set and feel yourself relax.
first day (Anse Chastanet, $40US)
Sleep in, have Doxie make you brunch, then walk up the road to the top for a little exercise and a panoramic view of Soufriere and the Pitons.
Pack up the beach gear, including a cooler with Piton beers, and have Junior take you to Anse Chastanet beach. Soak up the sun, do some snorkeling, then cool off with a cold beer.
Junior picks you up from the beach around 5 pm and takes you back to the villa. Dinner is waiting for you, since you arranged with Doxie when you arrived to have her make you dinner this evening.
second day (zone 1, $100)
Junior picks you up in the morning and takes you to the Soufriere dock where you get on a catamaran for a whale and dolphin-watching tour with Mystic Man. Afterwards, stop at the local grocery to stock up on a few things.
Head back to the villa, eat Doxie’s roti for lunch, relax by the pool for a little while, and then head to Dasheene at about 4:30 to have a beverage and some appetizers while watching the sun set between the Pitons.
Stay at Dasheene for dinner, and arrive back at the villa after dark to watch for shooting stars.
third day (zone 3, $200)
Have Junior pick you up about 9 AM and head to the north of the island.
Visit the craft market in Castries or do a little duty-free shopping in Pointe Seraphine then have lunch at the Pink Plantation overlooking Castries.
After lunch, hop on a Segway for a tour of the hills overlooking Rodney Bay, or stroll among the ruins on Pigeon Island. If you’re up to it, scramble to the top of Signal Hill and get a glimpse of Martinique (don’t forget the selfie!)
Have dinner at Spice of India in Rodney Bay (literally our favorite Indian restaurant in the world), and get back late.
For those of you who get a little carsick, or want a chance to see more of the island by boat, this trip can be taken by boat. The boat trip is not provided by Junior the price will be higher than what is noted above.
fourth day (Anse Chastanet, $40)
After having a long day the day before, and getting in rather late, sleep in a little. Have a light breakfast of tropical fruit and local coffee, then pack up the cooler with cold Piton beers and leftovers or sandwiches (or Doxie’s roti), grab the snorkel gear, the beach umbrella and chairs, and have Junior take you to Anse Chastanet.
Stop at the Scuba St Lucia hut on the Anse Chastanet beach and arrange a tour through the Anse Mamin ruins. Take the short walk (about 5 minutes)to Anse Mamin beach, then hike or bike through the trails and ruins. Prefer a water activity? Snorkel on Anse Mamin, snorkel, or just relax and soak up the sun.
Back to the villa in late afternoon to clean up and relax by the pool, and then have some rum punch and Doxie’s appetizers before you eat the dinner she has cooked for you.
fifth day (Zone 1, $100)
Pack up snorkel gear and your camera, and head out fairly early for the Tet Paul Nature Trail. Next stop is a trip to the drive-in volcano and the mud baths and a waterfall.
Stop at Fedo’s for authentic St Lucian cooking for lunch, then take a water taxi to Sugar Beach (cost not included) for beautiful white sand and snorkeling between the Pitons.
Back to the villa late afternoon, clean up, and then off to Boucan for dinner and a sumptuous chocolate lava cake for dessert, made with local cocoa, and sip on on-site-produced chocolate cream liqueur, if you are lucky.

sixth day (zone 1, $100)
Go to Morne Coubaril for zip-lining, a plantation tour, a lesson in how chocolate is made, and ride horses. Eat lunch at the buffet at Morne Coubaril, or at The Mango Tree restaurant at Stonefield.
Get on the Mystic Man sunset cruise (catamaran from Soufriere dock, sailing around the Pitons with music, beverages, and hors d’oeuvres while enjoying the sunset), then head back to the villa and enjoy your last night dining on one last delicious dinner made by Doxie (or leftovers!).
last day ($80)
Get up early and make some local coffee, and sit in the gazebo while savoring it and watching the sailboats head to St Vincent over the deep blue Caribbean. Soak up the peacefulness one last time.
Take a few sunrise pictures, and maybe even catch a double rainbow during a brief early morning shower. Pack, sadly say goodbye to Doxie and all the rest of our wonderful staff, and head off to the airport.
