About Lisa Jarvis
We fell in love with Saint Lucia on our first visit. Since building our vacation home in Marigot Bay we have met many wonderful new friends and some we feel are more like family. The landscape is mountainous and lush with vegetation, the bay is filled with luxurious yachts of all sizes but this is in stark contrast to the daily struggles of many local families which is why we started a US nonprofit organization called Irie Kids, Inc. Profits from our rentals help fund programs for underprivileged children in our community. Contact us or visit our website to learn more: firstname.lastname@example.org

Our Stay at Villa Papillon
Our stay at Villa Papillon was nothing short of amazing. It's a little slice of heaven in paradise. The villa is in a perfect location as well very private. The restaurants in the area were amazing and the food was great. The property manager Kim was amazing she was helpful in every aspect whether it was setting up tours or giving a restaurant recommendation. She was outstanding!!! The people of St. Lucia were also amazing kind and helpful in every way you can imagine. We had a amazing stay and look forward to returning.
Great place to get away and relax!
We just returned from a week at this villa and had a wonderful time. The villa is perfectly located close to town and all the restaurants. It is well appointed and very clean. There is a nice patio and gazebo along with a grill which we did use during our stay. The pool is just perfect to cool off in and take in all the views of the bay. We had hummingbirds and finches all around the property in the morning and enjoyed the beauty of the stars at night. This was our first time to this island and we loved it. This is a very hilly island and If your planning on walking anywhere, make sure you have appropriate shoes as some of the roads are steep. Lisa was easy to get in touch with and helped arrange a ride for us from the airport, which we are so glad she recommended. She has two wonderful people to help her, Kim and William. We can’t say enough about both of them, they were so kind and helpful in giving us all the information we needed to get around. We would most definitely come back to enjoy this beautiful place.
Fantastic location, clean and well equipped.
We had a fantastic stay. The apartment is centrally located and is exactly as pictured. It was private, pristine and perfect for us. We rented a car and had fun driving all over this incredibly lush island.
I would recommend a 4x4 if you like off roading. Lisa, Kim and William were amazing and so helpful. The bats flying at night were wonderful, along with the humming birds during the day. We would walk down to the bay every night and enjoy all the restaurants and bars. Great place. Thank you for sharing.
My husband and I stayed there in February 2019. We were met at the house by Kim, who is friendly and inviting. She showed us around , provided a welcome to St. Lucia beverage. Made us feel very much at home. We had the bottom apartment and it was everything we expected. Our only problem was that we found the bed very hard, so we were a bit stiff in the morning. (But that could be just us) We were offered clean sheets and towels half way through which is lovely. We utilized the bbq on a couple of nights and sat by the pool a couple of days. The Hurricane Hole has wonderful spiced martinis and the beach is a quick ferry ride away. We rented a car and took in a few sights on our own. Soufrere has the mud bath and sulphur bath and the volcano. We did not get to the fish fry this time, we decided we would do that next time and get a cab so we did not have to drive the windy, narrow roads at night. We also went to the Castries Market and spend the day and lunch at Chef Robbies ...wonderful to eat and look out at the water (providing their is not a cruise ship docked) Overall we would highly recommend this VRBO. Lisa (the owner) was easy to get a hold of, had all our questions answered and having Kim there everyday to help us get where we were going was amazing. The people of St. Lucia are VERY friendly and helpful. thank you so much for an amazing vacation !!
Our stay at this villa was nothing short of amazing! It was a perfect way to de-stress from the Christmas holiday. The unit itself was clean, well equipped, and comfortable. We spent a lot of time out at the grill and patio occasionally taking a dip in the pool.
It was a short walk to the marina for a quick bite to eat or a drink with several options available. I understand we could use the pool at cappella resort at the marina, but we just strolled through the grounds and had a vigorous game of ping pong. There is a little boat that takes you across the small waterway to a cute but very small beach. If you want serious beach time or a little more action , a lovely caretaker named Kim will set you up with what ever adventure you have in mind. She was very attentive but not intrusive. She checked in on us from time to time.
I would recommend bringing food with you or shopping for groceries in a nearby town. The marina has a small store for things like bug spray (essential) , alcohol and snacks. The kitchen has everything you will need to prepare your own meals.
All in all, it was one of the best vacations we've had. We highly recommend it.
Perfectly lovely & serene place to stay on the Island
I am so glad I stayed at Villa Papillon in Marigot Bay. The location suited me as it was quiet and the view of the lush rainforest and the bay was exactly what I needed. The Villa itself is gorgeous - inside and out. The pool was secluded, and I had breakfast many days under the gazebo. I was fortunate to see a gorgeous rainbow on my last day too.
The restaurants nearby were all good, especially Masala Bay. The margarita pizza at Chateau Myggo was especially yummy and the leftover served as my dinner the following night. I thought the service at most of the restaurants was exceptional, especially at Masala Bay, The Grill (Marigot Bay Resort), and Doolittle's.
I would recommend Tree Top Adventures for zip lining (although I had a car, they picked me up not too far from the Villa). And I did a boat/snorkel tour with Joy's Adventure, which I would also recommend. They picked me up right at the pier in Marigot Bay, which is about a 5 minute walk from the Villa.
The owner, Lisa, was extremely responsive to all of my questions and requests. And Kim, the property manager, was a real delight. She called & checked on me the day after I arrived. We also spent the day together at Pigeon Island, which was a nice treat.
I would definitely recommend Villa Papillon and hope to go back one day. Wish I was still there, especially since it's 45 degrees outside right now...
