I stayed there for 10 days during the Jazz festival. The best thing is the villa is not in the heart of the bustle and not too far off either. The owner drives you to and from the Rodney Bay Area until 5pm which is great. He gives a cellphone to keep in touch with him, but in the evening you cab it, which is not too bad since it's not too far from the action. All in all a great place, serene, comfortable and affordable.
We booked with Sunwest Villas on the basis of other reviews and were not disappointed. The owner, Greg, collected us from the airport and gave a great introduction to the island. When we got to the property we were delighted to discover that we had been upgraded to the four bed villa which is a lovely property. The views from the property were amazing and we sat out every night on the balcony watching the sunset. The property also has an infinity pool which we used every day -and usually had to ourselves! A bonus was that Greg gave us a half day orientation tour on the first day which we found very useful and we were also given a mobile phone which we could use to arrange a pick up with Greg. Would definately stay here again.
SunWest Villas is a lovely property within walking distance of the marina, the view from the Villa is beautiful. The Coyoba Unit is perfect for 2 friends, couple with children, as the two bedrooms are spacious. The unit is very comfortable, and has everything you will need. We spent two weeks at the Villa, our only suggestion is to have a few more chairs and a few chaise loungers on the deck outside the unit. We did not rent a car, if you like to explore at your leasure it is advisable. Several reviews include comments about Greg Skinner the owner, they are all true, he provides a wonderful transportation service to anywhere you want to go in the Rodney Bay area. Greg's island information regarding places to eat and sites to see was spot on, Juan Du Bois at Pigeon Island and Marie's on the beach (rum punch with a real PUNCH) to name but a few. Our island tour with Greg went to places that the mainstream tours never go to. We cannot thank Greg enough for showing us this beautiful island. Will surely return to Sunwest Villas in the future.

St Lucia is an exceptionally beautiful island with lovely people. Sunwest Villas was amazing with its great view of the marina. The apartment was spacious, clean and homely. Greg has great knowledge of the Island and we did the tours of the west and east of the Island with him. He is charming and has a great sense of humour and he made my parents who do not speak fluent English very welcome. However there was a side to him that I couldn't figure out. At times (in particular after 4.00pm) he had a tendency to be quite abrupt and fairly rude) in particular where there has been a misunderstanding on a very simple matter. His approach was certainly not warranted in the situations that arose, That was the only part that spoilt my lovely holiday and II felt afraid to speak to him at times. In hindsight I wished that I has stayed in Blue Skies villas rented out by Simon and Francine.
