What will we do?

Not sure how to spend your vacation? Here’s an itinerary that represents how many of our guests spend their vacation.

Do a little bit of everything during your stay

Arrival day

✦  Junior (or his driver, Billy) greets you at the airport and gets you settled in his comfortable vehicle.   

✦  Stop at Uptown’s Liquors, then a grocery along the way for snacks, breakfast ingredients, and “real” groceries if you plan on doing a lot of your own cooking. (Or hire Doxie to make breakfast or bring groceries up the next morning if you prefer to go right to the villa.)

✦  Then settle in and be happy you aren’t driving! Doxie meets you at the villa with rum punch and shows you around. Watch the sun set over the Caribbean and enjoy her roti for dinner.  

First day - chill at the beach

✦ Sleep in, hire Doxie to make you breakfast, then have Kerryus guide you up the road for a panoramic view of Soufriere and the Pitons. 

✦  Grab the beach gear and a cooler of Piton beers, and head to Anse Chastanet beach. Soak up the sun, do some snorkeling, and cool off with a cold beer.

✦  Junior takes you back to the villa for dinner. Enjoy Doxie’s fish fingers, chicken creole, and chocolate-chip cookies as you listen to the tree frogs sing and marvel at the Milky Way. 

Second day - enjoy the sea

✦ Go on a whale and dolphin-watching tour with Mystic Man tours or a half-day sail with Sugar Boat Charters, then stop at the grocery to stock up on a few things. Head back to the villa, eat Doxie’s roti for lunch and relax by the pool for a little while

✦  On the way back to the villa, stop at the grocery to replenish your supply of drinks and snacks. Head back to the villa, eat Doxie’s roti for lunch, and relax by the pool for the afternoon.

✦  Head to Dasheene (at Ladera) at about 4:30 to have beverages and appetizers while watching the sun set between the Pitons. Stay there for dinner. Arrive back at the villa after dark for a nightcap and watch for shooting stars.  

Third day - be a tourist!

✦  Have Junior pick you up about 9:00 AM and head to the north. Visit the craft market or do some duty-free shopping in Pointe Seraphine. Have lunch at the Pink Plantation.

✦  After lunch, hop on a Segway for a tour of the hills overlooking Rodney Bay, or stroll among the ruins on Pigeon Island. Scramble to the top of Signal Hill to get a glimpse of Martinique and take a selfie.

✦  Then have dinner at Spice of India (literally our favorite Indian restaurant in the world) or Jacques Waterfront for French food. Relax while Junior drives back.

Junior can arrange transportation by boat to/from the north if you prefer. 

"Stairway to Heaven" at Tet Paul Nature Trail

Fourth day - Snorkel and relax

✦  Sleep in again, then have a light breakfast of tropical fruit and local coffee. Head to Action Adventure Divers on Soufriere Beach and go on a snorkeling trip in their boat. Have a late lunch at Island Chef. Walk the few blocks to the Mini Massy to restock on drinks and snacks, then have Junior take you back to the villa.

✦ Lounge by the pool, then dine on Doxie’s dinner of breadfruit balls, pumpkin soup, pan-seared fish with vegetable rice, and chocolate cake with local coffee for dessert. Use the Sky Guide app to find planets and constellations in the inky-black night sky.

Fifth day - it's all about the chocolate! 😊

✦ Head to Cacoa St Lucie to learn about (and taste!) chocolate with a truffle-making class or a cocoa workshop. Have lunch there, or at the Beacon for a panoramic view of the Soufriere valley and Pitons.

✦  Shop for souvenirs in Soufriere or stop at Big Yard for a Piton beer or two and “rub elbows” with the locals.

✦  Back to the villa late afternoon, clean up, and then off to Rabot restaurant for dinner and a sumptuous chocolate lava cake for dessert, made with local cocoa, and sip on-site-produced Velvetised Chocolate Cream liqueur.  Buy some to take home if you are checking luggage. 

Sixth day - nature and sea

✦ Go to Grand Eden Estate for birdwatching and a farm tour. Have lunch at Martha’s Tables or at The Mango Tree restaurant, then have an easy hike with great views at the Tet Paul Nature Trail. In the afternoon, visit the drive-in volcano and the mud baths (wear old clothes!) and a waterfall.

✦  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 with one last delicious dinner made by Doxie (or leftovers!).

Last day - start planning your return visit!

✦  Get up early. Savor some freshly brewed local coffee and watch 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.  Pack, sadly say goodbye to Doxie and all the rest of our wonderful staff and head off to the airport.  Start planning your trip back while you are having one last Piton beer at the airport.
