If you're looking to stay on St Lucia but away from all the 5* luxury tourist resort hotels, then you'd find this self contained apartment very comfortable.
Situated in the SW of the island, and just off the island road, there's good access for travelling around to visit the rest of the island.
We stayed for 2 weeks in November and were met at the airport by Martin, the property owner, who guided us back to the property after we'd collected our hire car. This was very helpful as road signage on the island is very sparse and any maps rather lacking in detail.
Our car hire was with BestRates Cars/24 Hours Car Rentals who offered good rates and were very helpful.
We spent our time going out and about finding deserted beaches, country tracks and generally enjoying the tropical landscape - and sitting on our balcony looking out across to the Pitons and the sea in the distance.
This was our first visit to St Lucia and was a really enjoyable 2 weeks.
This place is very comfortable an inexpensive. If you want to be away from the town/city but still be close enough to get there this is the place for u. The Rooms were large and clean with comfortable beds. Surprisingly there are no mosquitos and the place remains very cool in temperature. Our hosts Martin and Joanna were wonderful and very informative. Thank you for a great stay.
The apartment is close to very nice beaches and the islands interior, with efficient air-conditioning. The owners live above and are helpful. A quiet location, with the close by main road never very busy and parking right next to the property.

My wife and I stayed at Martin and Joanna's Piton Vista Villa in April and we were very pleased. I'm pretty cautious on where I stay in foreign countries but Piton Vista Villa will have you settling in pretty quickly. It's got a spectacular view of one of the pitons and has all of the amenities you need to be comfortable. I met Martin and Joanna at the airport and followed him back to the residence. I highly recommend meeting him at the airport because you won't find it otherwise. St. Lucia basically has one main road everyone uses so getting lost isn't a total worry, unless you go to Castries. So once you know where it's located you won't drive past it. I also recommend renting an SUV as the roads can be windy and sometimes very steep.
Martin showed us the apartment the first day and we barely saw him after this. He was kind enough to give us our privacy but he was always available if needed. There are brochures laid out on the table with info on daily excursions and there is wifi included. It's not the most powerful signal but it got the job done no complaints. We saved tons of money shacking up there; if you visit you'll see the island is expensive. The best beaches are only 15-20 minutes away and there are some amazing resorts with spectacular views only 5-10 minutes away. Nature walks and hiking trails are also only a few minutes away. It's perfectly situated to do all of the fun and interesting things in or around Soufriere. The island is a rain forest paradise and I found the southern part of the island (where the apartment is located) much more interesting and beautiful than the north. Martin also gave us good info on great snorkeling beaches or very quiet beaches. If you want a quiet place to rest your head and good privacy as well than this is the place. Thanks to Martin and Joanna for such a pleasant experience.
