Description from owner

Description

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. 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.

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.

Evelyne 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.

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!!!

The St. Lucia region

Laborie is an unspoilt fishing village which is unspoilt by tourism, A beautiful curved bay with a jetty where the yachts come in and anchor, just the other sided the jetty is where the fishing boats anchor and then the real beach begins, soft sand fringed with palm trees and beautiful clear warm water. You can see the apartment from the beach. Laborie folk are very welcoming and friendly and I have contact numbers for visitors to make their holiday even more enjoyable, My son lives close by and can organise anything for guests including meals if they wish. In may there is a week long jazz festivals and often there are other celebrations taking place throughout the year

Laborie

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 a bakery, several restaurants, a craft shop and a must is TILLYS restaurant but it is necessary to book. There are also a few bars to get a cold Piton beer or a shot of rum and everyone is very friendly. It is a working fishing village and when the fishermen arrive back with their catch, they blow a conch shell so,you can go and buy fresh fish from them.
