About Warren A. Roger and T. Jeanette Sutherland

My wife and I are both Saint Lucians who retired in 2004 and returned to Canada to rejoin our family there but we make frequent trips to the island. For the last several years we have leased the property for long term periods (the last long term tenant was there for three years). We have now decided to make it available for vacation rentals so that we or our family may also use it occasionally.

Warren A. Roger and T. Jeanette Sutherland purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Warren A. Roger and T. Jeanette Sutherland chose Gros Islet

When the building of the property was completed it became a 'no brainer' for us to purchase it because of its unbeatable location on Reduit Beach. We have spent most enjoyable times there between rentals.

What makes this apartment unique

The main benefit of our property is its location on Reduit Beach as well as its easy walking distance to great restaurants, supermarkets, banks, shops and malls and even a casino.

One does not need to rent a car to have a great time.

Great experience! Beautiful property! Well equipped. And a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Roger was a great owner to work with. We were well taken care of during our stay. We are beach people so we enjoyed the closeness of the fantastic beach and all of the great views. Loved having the beach chairs provided. We also liked having a pool as another option. It was an excellent location to the shops and restaurants. A very nice condo with a large balcony and well equipped. I just wish we could have stayed longer!

Owner's Response: I am most pleased that you found it great to work with me because my only focus is the absolute enjoyment and satisfaction my guests receive from staying with us. It is for the same reasons that you loved it that we purchased the condo years ago - great beach, wonderful pool, easy access to shops and restaurants and everything you need in the unit for a comfortable stay, as a home away from home. Please come back again.

Comfortable apartment , convenient location and extremely friendly staff made for a perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

Apartment had all the home comforts needed to make a self catering holiday enjoyable.

Delia is an excellent hostess and ensured we had everything we needed, even came around to the apartment a couple of times to check we were ok.

Airport transfer arranged was seamless and made our arrival and return journey so much easier.

Apartment owners Roger and Jeanette kept in contact from the point of booking right up until after our return.

We had a great holiday and it was made extra special by the efforts of Roger and his time.

Perfect place close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

Above and beyond! Roger was great to communicate with and Delia was super during our check in. The place is conveniently located but still in a quiet area and with Roger's directions easy to find. It was the perfect place for us and our 2 year old daughter. A coffee shop and grocery store are a 10 minute walk and the beach is a 2 minute walk. The beach is beautiful and very quiet only a few locals. The pool was perfect to relax after a day at the beach. The apartment was very clean and the kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. I would definitely recommend Roger's place to anybody looking for the perfect spot to stay.

Excellent experience. Would highly recommend !

  • 5 of 5

We have rented another VRBO property in past on another island and had a great experience. This condo was another hit. Enjoyed ourselves and had all the amenities of home. A couple of tips that may help other travellers.

This condo unit does have books that have been left behind (myself included!) Lighten the load and peruse the library in unit. There are two great Tommy Bahama chairs and a beach umbrella. If you are beach people and plan to spend longer times on beach, strike up a deal with local beach rentals. This beach area has some who you can rent from if you want chairs that lie full out and a larger umbrella, if you want to go in and out of sun. We made arrangements for 8 days and each morning our chairs were out where we wanted and umbrella up. So close to the beach from this unit. Amazing! This is the calmest water on Rodney Bay and also was not packed side by side with people. LOVED IT!

There is a soft side and hard cooler in unit. We made ice and used the hard cooler and were able to send the whole day on beach. Buy rotis from Liz Roti or her awesome cakes. Beers and fish lunch from Maria's Fish shack and you are set for the day.

We did pay for a private tour of island through Real St Lucia Tours and were glad we did. Nicer than being packed on a tour bus with others who may or may not wish to spend time on each stop. We had Stephen as guide - excellent.

Overall, this is a cozy unit, nothing fancy but will serve your purpose as a landing spot for all the sun and relaxing you want on your holiday! Roger was a very attentive and responsive owner and Delia on site was available on arrival and explained all we needed. Very clean unit.

Excellent position

  • 4 of 5

The property is in a great position close to the beach and within walking distance to the shops. Delia who manages the property was very friendly and helpful also Alvin who picked us up from the airport. The swimming pool and grounds are well maintained and nice and private.

There is everything you need in the condo for an enjoyable stay.

Just in the corner of the beach by the walkway is Marie’s Shack, the fish is excellent and very reasonably priced, you can book your boat trips there as well.

We would definitely stay here again

Great location, lovely apartment.

  • 4 of 5

Clean and extremely well stocked. Air conditioning in bedrooms only. The walk to the beach was 3 minutes and town was only 5 with many restaurants and 2 large grocery stores. Lots of other shopping. The pool is 5 feet deep and a nice alternative to the beach. There was cable TV with lots of channel choices. WiFi was dependable. The only thing I would suggest is new pillows and a longer couch as you can't stretch out.

Owner's Response: Thank you for selecting our Caribbean holiday home and recognizing its cleanliness, well stocked attributes and its proximity to the beach, restaurants and shopping. Some guests prefer soft pillows and others firmer ones and replacement of various items is ongoing as needed. Our air-conditioning units were both replaced two months ago. The published details of our unit have always specified that only the bedrooms are air conditioned. Hoping to host you in the future.

We are located on best beach - REDUIT
Car: not necessary

One of the biggest attractions is our World Heritage Pitons and the drive-in volcano in Soufriere.

Nearby is the award winning Diamond Falls Botanical Gardens where one may bathe in the warm spring water, in baths once used by French King Louis xiv's troops in the 18th Century.

Some of the best snorkeling and scuba diving is also located in this area, at the Anse Chastanet Hotel just minutes north of the town of Soufriere.

One of the most rewarding adventures could well be hiking our rain forest or even climbing the Gros Piton.

Yet closer to our condo in the north, Pigeon Point historic ruins and fort is a must see. Revel in its rich history dating back to the famous English Admiral Rodney and learn of his role and St. Lucia's in the great conflict for the New World.
