Situated in a fantastic location in Laborie in the south of st Lucia. This is new apartment underneath the owners newly renovated greenheart house. Kitchen with cooking facilities, fridge, microwave, wifi, and hot water shower in a wet room and large balcony overlooking the Caribbean Sea. A large mosquito net covers the double bed and the windows have shutters and burglar bars. Wonderful views of Laborie, the fishing boats, the jetty and the beach. The house sits on the side of a hill and its great to sit there to watch the sunset with a gin and tonic or rum punch in your hand! Laborie offers the real Caribbean and is not touristy.

Kitchen with cooking facilities, fridge, microwave, wifi, and hot water shower in a wet room and large balcony overlooking the Caribbean Sea. A large mosquito net covers the double bed and the windows have shutters and burglar bars. Wonderful views of Laborie, the fishing boats, the jetty and the beach. The house sits on the side of a hill and its great to sit there to watch the sunset with a gin and tonic or rum punch in your hand! Laborie offers the real Caribbean and is not touristy. There are a few shops and a bakery and a couple of restaurants, all within 10 minutes walk from the apartment. Local transport runs frequently into vieux fort and costs only 2 dollars EC. Fishermen announce the arrival of fresh fish by blowing the conch shell and often you can see them sitting by the sea weaving their fishing baskets out of palm. Laborie is only 20 minutes from the main airport and offers a totally unique experience. We are in a very safe location and local and local people are very friendly. VAvi, my daughter in law, looks after the property for us and is willing to cook for guests, arrange for laundry to be done and generally help in anyway possible. I can recommend a good taxi driver who offers reasonable rates for collection from the airport to tours around the island. My son and his wife live nearby and Mark is able to organise trips round the island, fishing trips, diving etc. And now...sub winging which is proving to be very popular and great fun. Our apartment is perfect if you love wild birds. Because we are in a tropical garden, there are many varieties of wild birds around and they are very frequent visitors if they know food is around! They line up on the wire for their breakfast and will flit around all day in the banana trees. Many guests have told me how wonderful it is so see them so close as they are not worried by people. The location of the apartment is very good as it is private and guests can come and go as they please, The garden is fenced and accessed via a gate both bottom and top. The bottom gate is locked and guests will be given a key. You have to be reasonably fit to stay here. We are on the side of a hill and it's a walk down to the beach and village but some might find it a bit steep coming back up although it's not a long walk. Likewise car parking is up the path from the apartment ...it's not possible to bring a vehicle right to the apartment. One complaint from visitors is that they spend too much time on the balcony soaking up the wonderful view of the sea which is ever changing and just watching boats, birds and soaking up the whole ambiance. They arrive with plans to do so many things and end up with the thought...we shall have to come again!!!More

I think you would probably have one of the best holiday experiences ever! My son will take guests out on a boat trip, sub winging, beach barbecue and we have even had wonderful music evenings when the rum punch flows and the guitar comes out! My son has lived there for 30 years and knows so much about the island and it's history and has many stories to tell!

About the neighbourhood
It is hilly and the middle of the island is quite mountainous. The island is green as it gets good rainfall,and is very beautiful. Transport from laborie is very frequent and cheap and it costs only 2 dollars EC to get into VIEUX FORT from where you can get transport to other parts of the island. The roads have improved greatly but car hire is expensive, We have a very good taxi driver that many of our guests have used and you can book him for a day to take you to the Pitons, Soufriere, Botanical gardens etc and he knows everyone and everywhere and gives very good value for money. From the apartment you can walk to the beach is Laborie but there is another beach accessed from the top road and the path goes down to a quiet stony beach. Laborie itself has a small supermarket ...
Getting around
Local transport is readily available and very cheap. Transport runs from Laborie TO VIeux Fort for only 2 dollars EC and you can connect to other places from there. MArk, my son, can help with Carhire and get you a good deal. If you are only there for a few days, there are local drivers who will take you our foe a day to see the sights and often this is a cheaper option.
