If like us you want to experience more of a Caribbean island than through a hotel - or maybe combining a self-catering experience with an all i9nclusive (with kids club) then you can do no better in St Lucia than renting a sea front villa at Villa Beach Cottages. We spent two glorious weeks there with our two boys aged 7 and 4.
We had a new ground floor two bedroom apartment. It was huge, spotless with excellent facilities (down to a muffin tray!). There was a daily cleaning service and beach towels were provided as well.
The boys had a twin bedroom at the rear whilst our room opened onto the sea view. We could eat out on the terrace outside our room which had a gate (good for those with small children) and looked out onto the small new pool (complete with waterfall) and the sun loungers. One stride beyond and you were down the steps onto the beach. Apart from a couple of days when the sea was a bit rough the bay was calm and near deserted. You could have an undisturbed swim in either direction. VBC is on the same long narrow stretch of beach used by other resorts. We did visit other beaches (Marigot Bay, Reduit and Anse Chastenet) and though the sea was clearer you shared the beach with and swimming was limited due to the boats.
From our arrival tired after the long flight to our departure the staff are fantastic. They organised car drivers, babysitting and restaurant bookings.
It was a fantastic experience to sleep to the gentle wash of the waves and the persistent evening chirp of the coqui - a tree frog!Read moreLess
