Our reviews say it all, this villa is just like home in a Caribbean surrounding!

Coco View Villa is conveniently located in a country hillside setting surrounded by lush plantations. Organic fruit and vegetables in garden! Save on groceries! The view truly is spectacular; we've been told numerous times that it's one of the most incredible on the island.

This scenic villa is abundant in flora and fauna and you can just sit on the deck and enjoy the beauty all day and all night long! The sunrises and full moons are incredible as they shine across the ocean. The breezes are fabulous and wonderful to have in the Caribbean heat! The villa faces the south east which provide great natural breeze and perfect temperatures in the afternoon! Direct Caribbean afternoon sun can be stifling. This villa has the ultimate Caribbean exposure!

Each deck is private and has over 500 sq ft of outdoor space and the villa is situated on a half acre of beautiful palms, flowers, and fruit and vegetables for your dining pleasure! In the season, we can also arrange for crab and lobster to be brought to you! Chef available upon request. Fine West Indian Caribbean cuisine. All types of cuisine available as well.

Coco View Villa is situated on a lush hillside overlooking both the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea. The villa can be one, two or three bedroom, whatever your needs. The 1/2 acre property has fruit trees and a number of garden vegetables for your dining pleasure! It's an eco friendly environment that is located close to the International airport and beaches of white sand that are famous for kite and wind surfing! All amenities available within 10 minute drive. There is great local dining as well.

The villa can be rented as a whole or in part as it has 3 separate living areas:

Palm: 2 bdrm, king/queen with full kitchen (DW) and 500 sq ft of deck. Common laundry on this floor, separate but accessible from inside Palm Suite.

Cococut: 1 bdrm, king with full kitchen and 300 sq ft of deck. Separate entrance and joining entrance with Palm Suite, lockable both from both units.

Mango: 1 bdrm, full kitchen and 500 sq ft of deck.

The units are completely furnished with modern high quality furnishing and are completely private.

All units have laundry access and kitchen islands and sinks that overlook the Atlantic Ocean and the Marie Islands. The view is incredible, our guests are truly amazed.

The gardens include a variety of fruits and vegetable of which some are available year round, others seasonal: pineapple, banana (8 varieties), mango, coconut, apple (golden & love), orange, lime, lemon, grapefruit, passion fruit, avocado, sugar cane, onions, lettuce, tomato, potato (white & sweet), eggplant, Caribbean ground provisions (tania, dashene & breadfruit). Flora includes Palm trees (Traveller, Saw Palmeto, Christmas, Coconut), Bird of Paradise, Allamanda, Ixora, Firecracker, Hibiscus, and Bougainvillea. Our local farmers quite often deliver what isn’t available in the garden to the villa. Or you can take a walk and go pick them yourselves! The hillside and villa are a Garden of Eden!

The neighborhood is quiet and friendly. There are 4 fresh water springs on the hillside and two of them are used in bottling Bamboo Springs water. It's a small plant hidden in a banana plantation higher up the hillside.

All of our guests seem to have truly enjoyed their stay with us and we hope you decide to visit us as well!

Our background:

We are retired Officers and we love the water. We sailed over 4,000 kms to get to St Lucia. We can help organize land and sea tours for you as we also have a sail boat.

We can also show you a variety of places to dine or where to get groceries if you'd prefer to cook at the villa. We can also stock your fridge and bar (additional cost) for your arrival.

Welcome to Coco View Villa!

Stunning views and top notch accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

Ken and Diane’s rental villa was fabulous. Outstanding views from a large patio/deck where you can eat or just relax. The rental was very clean and nicely decorated. Bedrooms very nice size with comfortable beds. Ken and Diane were gracious hosts, showing us local places to eat and visit. You will not be dissappointed with your stay here.

A tranquil and lovely setting for a perfect St. Lucia vacation

  • 5 of 5

The view from the balcony was simply stunning! The first word that came out of my mouth upon arrival was "WOW"!

The villa has everything you need for a relaxing vacation. We stayed at the lower level Palm Suite, with 2 bedrooms, a living room, and a well-equipped kitchen. I made breakfast everyday and barbecued one night.

The owner Diane and Ken are sweet fellow Canadians. Diane was always responsive to emails and we communicated numerous times before our departure. She also checked in with us many times during our stay. The property manager Kimberly is equally friendly and helpful. They were all very accommodating and tried their very best to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We were here to celebrate a birthday and I asked Diane to help with ordering a cake - ended up with Kimberly's personal baking! They are just super nice people.

They have maintained a very nice garden with fruits and vegetables that guests are welcomed to enjoy. Diane made sure we had fresh coconut water so she had their gardener made us a huge jug. They were delicious with the fresh lime from the garden. We were eyeing the pineapples but too bad they weren't quite ripen yet. I did manage to use the spinach for our breakfast omelettes.

The villa is about 15 minutes from Vieux Fort, 20 minutes from Laborie and 50 minutes from Soufriere. We have rented an small SUV. There are a few nice restaurants in the areas; not fancy "5-stars" eating places but they have the local vibes and the food were delicious. Definitely enjoyed going to "Mamma Tilly" - she cooked from her heart! Those breadfruit balls were so tasty! A "must-go" if you are staying here. We went there twice! There is a Massy Store (grocery) in Vieux Fort and it's adequately stocked.

Ken and Diane are avid "sailors" and we went on their boat for a private sailing day-tour. Despite being sea-sick it was an awesome trip. They were so attentive to our needs. We were taken to this private beach and had a picnic lunch there. Diane prepared snacks and a delicious lunch including rice, vegetables, pasta salad and fish. We enjoyed this experience very much. They have all the snorkeling gears for us to use.

This is not your "typical" vacation rental. It is more like a home away from home and it's run by people who truly care. It's tranquil and it offered us a haven to catch some much-needed rest. It's more than what we've hoped for and thank you!

A really relaxing stay in lovely surroundings

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed relaxing at CocoView on the large terrace with amazing views. We were well looked after by Diane, Charles and Kimberley and

certainly go back as soon as time permits. Enjoyed shopping for locally caught fish and the local vegetable market and picking the juiciest limes in the garden.

Gorgeous view in a unique location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the villa for 4 nights in early February 2018. Communication was easy and quick from our initial contact onward. It was an amazing experience and we'd highly recommend it! We were super comfortable--everything was clean, kitchen was well-appointed, and upon our arrival we were warmly welcomed and offered beautiful fresh fruit and coconut water from the gardens on the property.

What really made our stay exceptional--aside from the stunning view and the pleasant space--was how at home we felt. Kim, who's helping manage the property this year, was absolutely lovely, incredibly helpful with directions and tips for local attractions, restaurants, and more. She helped make our visit a truly exceptional one, and we're so glad to have had her there, she's a great asset!

Villa is an easy drive from the airport, Vieux Fort, and the beach, and about an hour + to Castries and the north. We found plenty to do in the area but did make a day trip to Rodney Bay--worth doing, but it made us appreciate the peaceful setting of the villa and the less touristy Atlantic side of the island a whole lot more! If you're going to St. Lucia, this place is definitely worth visiting--real hospitality in a stunning location!

True Local Vibe Caribbean Stay

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't agree more with the previous two reviews. The house & gardens are spectacular and meticulously maintained! The house had everything we needed to feel comfortable and cook fresh meals. Wade & Theresa were so kind and accommodating as well as informative. They were terrific with my 8 year old daughter, and a wealth of knowledge for local spots to check out and tips to travel about the southern part of the island. We were also encouraged to help ourselves to the terrific fruits and vegetables the garden offered. The view simply can not be captured in a photo, its breathtaking. We wish we had booked two weeks if only for the pleasure of having coffee in the sun on the expansive deck the Coco View Villa has. We rented an SUV (recommended) and drove to Sandy Beach everyday (5 minutes) it was beautiful and quiet. We were sure to schedule a day on Ken & Diane's boat and it was the highlight of our trip! They are great hosts, knowledgeable and fun! Sailed down the west coast, snorkeled and enjoyed a fabulous lunch of lobster, conch & more! Sailing back we were able to lend a hand in catching a huge beautiful red snapper they cooked up for dinner right there at sunset....perfect heavenly day! We (including my daughter) can't wait to book again and spend more time with these awesome folks! We especially loved the location of the villa, we often vacation away from tourist areas for the experience of local flare, we got exactly that! Thank you, Thank you!!!

BEST VACATION IN OUR MANY YEARS OF TRAVEL

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Coco view villa jan. 24 to feb. 3 its a spectacular place with views of the coast and the towns below.

Ken and Diane were great hosts on our catamaran sail down the coast they provided a beautiful lunch in front of the Pitons

The managers at the villa are Wade and Theresa you would be hard pressed to meet two nicer people. They attended our every need teaching us the local culture taking us to a local Lician farm and explaining the gardens at the villa. We cannot say enough about there hospitality. The villa is all you will need for a wonderful time.
