We stayed at the beautiful villa Makambu for two weeks in August and honestly cannot fault it. Everything from location to villa, the garden and pool to fixtures and fittings all perfect. It was a home from home and we didn't want to leave! It was bliss waking each morning and looking out over the bay and out to sea, relaxing with tea and toast on a lounger wbooks book. The villa is beautifully appointed, spacious and very well equipped. Carlos the caretaker lives a stones throw away and was always on hand to help. We had a housekeeper every third day who was fabulous and left the house immaculate. Carlos made us fish cakes, fresh juices, coconut, calabash bowls... He was a gem and an asset to the owners. We hired a car for four days and visited places all over the island but we loved Marigot Bay most of all. A jewel of a resort, small, intimate, well stocked and with great people, locals and ex pats alike. We felt like friends to many by the time we left and that is very special. We would love to return and will. Thank you to to Pascale for all her help and to Josse, the manager, who, like Carlos, was a godsend. My only recommendations would be to bring ear plugs to block out local bar music from nearby at the weekend and a CD player or iPod dock to play music would have been great. Book this villa! You won't be disappointed!

“Superb accommodation!”

I stayed in this villa as part of a large group. Where to start...!

The hosts are very welcoming, informative and friendly, the accommodation itself is luxurious and clean, and the views are spectacular!

It was great to have a warm shower in the lovely bathroom as soon as I woke up, walk through to the pool to do a few lengths and then bask in the sunshine on a sun lounger while overlooking Marigot Bay. It is what holidays are made for!

We rented a 4x4 to explore the island a bit. There is ample room for parking at Villa Makambu and plenty of space in the fridge for any food you buy along the way - we made full use of the BBQ facilities! It is about a 10-15 walk down to the local shops and a brilliant restaurant called "Chateau Mygo". I highly recommend walking/driving down to Chateau Mygo for "sun downers" - a few "Piton" beers in an ice bucket overlooking the sea. I am starting to get depressed writing this review as I want to be back there!

My group all loved our stay at Villa Makambu. I would not hesitate to recommend this accommodation to a friend/family.

The owners could not be more hospitable. The mid Island location is great. Views are fantastic. Highly recommended.
drawbacks: The road, a few biting bugs Mozzies, and the music that comes from clubs in the bay.
None are that bad but bring a pair of earplugs and some after bite.

My husband and I stayed here with our 2 daughters (ages 8,6 yo) for 10 days. The accommodations were outstanding: beautiful, clean, spacious and did I mention a spectacular view and big pool?? Our two kids were in heaven and spent any free time swimming. The owners could not be more hospitable and they have a groundskeeper and cleaning person who are the friendliest most helpful people you could ever meet. They provided us with a local cell phone to use while we were there and even stocked the refrigerator on our first day of arrival. They have a local Canadian friend of theirs help when you first arrive and will help answer any questions you have. The house is spectacular, clean, comes fully stocked with anything you need and made our first visit to St. Lucia spectacular and unforgettable.
