“There's simply nothing better!”

If you’re hesitant like I was about booking a private vacation house then you need to read this review. Trust me, if you choose Villa Zatarra you have nothing to worry about! I looked into A LOT of different rental properties, read countless reviews and emailed plenty of owners. No property looked as serene, no villa had 5 star guest ratings across the board, and no one was as patient, informative and quick to respond as Veron. This is just part of why we chose Villa Zatarra for our honeymoon.

Villa Zatarra is simply beyond your wildest dreams! Extremely spacious, amazing views and an outdoor living atmosphere. But the best part of the villa is the owners, Veron and Rob. They are unbelievably welcoming and kind. On our first full day in St Lucia, Veron spent the afternoon showing us around the area and getting us comfortable with driving on the other side of the road. She took us to a great coffee shop, Rituals, and showed us every beach, restaurant and hotel in the area. She told us about different events happening at these places and when the best time is to go. Had it not have been for Veron taking the time to get us acquainted I think we would have missed out on some of the best parts of the island. She was kind enough to check in from time to time to make sure we had everything we needed. She offered to book dinner reservations and tours and gave tips on the most cost effective options. She coordinated our helicopter transfer from the airport on the south to the closer one more north on the island. (Which is something I would recommend trying to budget for- $300USD for two of us. Pricy but incredible!) She arranged for a trusted friend and driver, Big Runner to pick us up.

He pointed out the sights as we traveled the short distance into Rodney Bay and waited while we picked up some necessities at the grocery store. He even recommended a beer, Piton; it was all we drank on our vacation! He became our driver whenever we needed him and would show us around when he dropped us off. Big runner, you are the champion!

If you have the opportunity to see Rob play, take it! We visited a nearby hotel one evening and sat by the water, sipping champagne and cocktails, in awe as Rob played the saxophone. He came over to introduce himself right after his set and spent the evening enjoying drinks and chatting. We were also fortunate enough to join Rob on a sunset cruise from a beautiful hotel with the Pitons as the back drop. It was picturesque as we saw a rainbow sprout from the beach, arch over the rainforest covered mountains and plunge in the turquois water. Grooving to Rob’s velvet sax playing and enjoying the company of the other vacationers then finishing the cruise with a hoppin’ dance party!
Rob and Veron are the perfect hosts; they made us feel like we were their number one priority. They make the already amazing villa that much better. It truly is a different way to vacation. With a car and local cellphone provided, we had the freedom to come and go as we please which made it easy to do everything we wanted to. We spent several of our days just lounging by the pool and grilling on the charcoal barbeque. The full kitchen made cooking convenient and with the housekeeper, Mary to tidy up, it was easy. The gardener, John would pick coconuts for us, chill the water and cut up the meat.

The villa is magnificent. The master bedroom is spectacular! From the four poster bed draped in netting to the massive open concept shower, it’s a dream. Only to be outdone by the breathtaking views from the giant balcony off the bedroom! A hammock to relax in and feel the breeze off the ocean and a little dining table, great for coffee and breakfast in the morning. The main floor is all open concept, with beautiful stone floors. Everything is very well kept by the housekeeper, Mary; the villa was always sparkling clean and smelling of lemon grass and the ocean. Veron’s history in interior design is obvious. Every detail is thought of and put together in the most beautiful way. The little added touches sprinkled throughout the house make it feel like home.

Lastly, I have to mention Chef Busby. We were to be celebrating my husband’s birthday while on our honeymoon. We wanted to do something special and Veron had recommended Chef Busby to come in and cook us dinner. We discussed details over email before arriving, and then Veron took us to meet her and go over our menu selection. Chef Busby arrived with an assistant and they worked together to set up a beautiful dinner on our balcony, overlooking the ocean while we sipped wine and relaxed. The three course meal they served was outstanding! We had crème brule for dessert and my husband and I both agree that it was the most delicious thing we have ever eaten. I would go back to St Lucia for the crème brule alone. It really was that good!

St Lucia is a beautiful place, with kind people and an awe-inspiring landscape. It offers everything you could wish to do on a vacation. Staying at Villa Zatarra was the best vacation of my life. I can’t wait to return again, so long as Rob and Veron are still there. Thank you so much to Rob, Veron, Chef Busby, Big Runner, John and Mary for making our honeymoon spectacular! There is not a single thing I would change, nothing could have made the villa, the company and the honeymoon better! Simply put, this is clearly the superior way to vacation!

Wow!!! What a beautiful review. Thanks guys for taking the time to write such a detailed account of your stay with us. As you know the reviews are a big part of the decision process for other potential guests to our villa and I'm sure if they only read your review alone that should convince them enough of what to expect.
It was really good meeting you both. Continue to enjoy married life and all the fun that comes with it and we hope to see you and your friends back down here sometime soon.

Peace & Love

“Our best rental villa ever!”
Reviewed 18 August 2012 for a stay in January 2012

people found this review helpful

My wife, my son (who was 5 yo at the time) and I stayed at Villa Zatarra for 3 weeks in January 2012. We paid a reasonable extra in order to rent the jeep of the owners.

We are "discerning" travelers, I would even say difficult ones in the sense that our standards are high (we travel business class, stay at 4.5 and 5 stars hotels, eat gourmet food, etc).

I will not repeat here all the nice things written in the previous reviews, but I will only say that they are all true, and more. Quite frankly, compared to other similar options in St-Lucia (e.g. luxury hotels or villas of the same caliber), this particular property offers a really great ratio quality/price and, as a bonus, the owners are quite helpful whenever you have questions or special needs. I'm not saying it's cheap, I'm saying the ratio quality / price is very good.

“Three idyllic weeks”
Reviewed 14 August 2012 for a stay in February 2012

Rob cared for us, from the ease of being picked up, the arrangement for the car, the first morning tour around the end of the island, and his general friendliness in inviting us to his performances and to lunch at the end. He was responsive to any questions and needs, which were few. The two of us absolutely enjoyed all of the time spent there, and also meeting interestng couples all from different countries, and enjoying time spent with them. The Marina was the center of our activities for groceries, dining, and general hanging around. We are grateful to Rob and his family, for we even received an invitation to his son's brthday party down at a beach with all his other island friends.
