The Great House

Review of Oasis Marigot
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Dec 4, 2015
My husband and I stayed at The Great House Nov. 21-28, 2015. It was very spacious for just the two of us! I think we went downstairs once the whole week. The weather was perfect the whole week. I was worried because weather.com said it was supposed to rain every day. It would rain a few minutes most days, but the sun would still be out.

We conveniently got the provisional delivery, which was ready for us when we arrived late Saturday night. We decided just to order the basics to cook breakfast and make sandwiches for lunch on most days.

The view from the house is absolutely breathtaking! Worth every penny we spent on this trip. We spent most of the time that we weren't exploring the island by the pool or on the rocking chairs on the balcony. There's a small beach on the opposite side of the bay that you can take a water taxi to($3USD).

Beware of all the mosquitoes! Definitely bring some OFF spray (I made the mistake of not and I got well over 50 bites).

The home and the grounds are very well maintained. The housekeeper ( I can't remember her name) was wonderful. She came every day and tidied up, unloaded the dishwasher, gave us fresh towels, and made our bed. It felt like we were staying in a hotel. The walk up and down to the bay was tiring, especially in the heat. We were lazy and took a taxi twice ($10USD!).

We can't wait to come back & stay here, but maybe with our family or friends to fill up the house!
Date of stay: November 2015
Room Tip: If you're from America, bring a converter. They provide a few, but they're not compatible...

Hi Monica,

Thank you for the great review! Especially the "It felt like we were staying in a hotel." and "The view from the house is absolutely breathtaking! Worth every penny we spent on this trip".

As a hotel/villa rental company, there's not much more we could ask for in our guests' experiences! We're happy you had such a relaxing and enjoyable time at the Great House.

We would love to welcome you back one day - at the Great House or another one of our great villas across the island! :)

    We - four friends from across Canada - rented the Great House from Oasis Marigot November 14 to 21, 2015. The house is fabulous. It is across the bay from the Oasis Marigot resort, and the view of Marigot Bay and the Caribbean Sea is spectacular. The house is spacious, clean, and beautifully furnished, and the kitchen is well equipped. The outdoor areas, including the pool, are lovely. It's a pleasant walk down to the village below. The walk back up the hill to the house is good exercise, which was usually followed by a swim in the pool. Oasis Marigot arranged our transportation to and from the airport as well as a road trip to Castries and a sailboat trip to Soufriere. The Oasis staff were very helpful, and the drivers they booked for us were pleasant and knowledgeable. We enjoyed our week at the Great House immensely and would do it again in a heartbeat. Ellen G.

    Hi Ellen,

    Wonderful to hear you enjoyed the Great House as it should be! The views, the gardens, the house, and the nice walks up and down to the bay! And you're right, a dip in the pool after the walk back up is totally necessary! ;)

    Thanks for your overall appreciation of our grounds, staff, and services. Your review is exactly what we strive to deliver for all our guests.

    We would LOVE to welcome you back one day - whether at the Great House or another one of our fantastic villas across the island.

    My husband my 4 year old and I spent a wonderful 8 days at Oasis Marigot. The whole place was beautiful, very peaceful, quiet and secluded. We stayed in one bedroom villa( #2 ) which was located close to the swimming pool. We didn't have any problems with bugs and mosquitos. The view from the balcony was just amazing and the unit was clean and fully equipped. It was simple, but it had everything that we needed. No Tv, but we appreciated the A/C in the bedroom ($120 extra) as it got very hot inside. It would be difficult for us without the A/C, especially during the night. The hotel stuff are great (Miranda and Sam were very helpful and knowledgeable). The cleaning lady that cleaned our villa did a great job as well. But our special THANK YOU goes to Thomas the groundskeeper (wonderful, friendly, hardworking and honest individual). He's a true asset to Oasis Marigot...Overall we loved our stay here and would recommend this place to anyone. My advice is make sure you get villa w/ AC....

    Hi Agatha!

    Thank you for amazing review! We're so happy to hear that you liked your stay at our Vacation Club Villas of Marigot Bay and that you found the whole place to be "beautiful, very peaceful, quiet and secluded". It's also great to hear that we met all your needs in the unit, being clean and fully equipped. Yes, it's simple and we don't offer TV, but that's part of the appeal because it makes you appreciate the view and the beautiful environment of St. Lucia.

    As for the A/C, not all units have this yet which is why there is a different price to have AC right now, but we're still working on updating all the units with solar hybrid A/C units.

    We would love to welcome you back one day should you choose to return to beautiful St. Lucia! :)

    We arrived at the villa on Sunday 11-8-15 around 4:30 PM and where greeted by the house manager Ureil Placide. He gave us the grand tour and showed all the amenities of the villa, the house staff were fantastic and came every day to clean and tidy up. The villa was even better than depicted on the web site. Oasis Marigot took care of all our outings, day sale to Sourfriere with snorkeling, volcano, botanical gardens and lunch on the sailboat don't forget the rum punch with a great crew! Whale watching trip was fun only saw some blow holes and tail flippers but the dolphins were fun to watch. All in all Oasis Marigot did a fantastic job. Take their advise and take a taxi as driving is crazy, ask for Albert he will take care of you. Go St. Lucia and Oasis Marigot.
    Thanks for a great trip.

    Hello Richard & Kathy,

    Wow, so nice to hear that you had such an enjoyable trip and especially that our Butterfly Beach House exceeded your expectations!

    Thanks you also for commenting on our staff "taking care of you" with all the extras like taxis, activities, day sails, etc. More and more we strive to offer a unique service that is 'private villa rentals with hotel-like service'. Thank you.

    Nice to hear you got to explore the island so much! If you ever get a chance to return, we'd be happy to welcome you back! :)

    The price was right, considering St Lucia is not a cheap place. The people in general are really kind and wonderful and very proud of the Island. I have been to dozens of Islands but St Lucia is great on taking care of its trees and waters. The Oasis is a very peaceful place and Margot Bay is a spectacular place to go for a Honeymoon. If your young and looking to party not so much. Do not miss the fish fry on Friday nights in the next fishing village south or go to the jump up in Castries in Castries. We rented a 42 foot sailboat to go south to the pitons. The Gardens and Waterfalls are nice but the volcano is not worth your time unless you have never seen small steam vents. The baths look good but we did not try them in the same place but I would just pay for the baths and you can still see most of the vents. So the sail was great but the lunch well I would bring your own. You have to walk some up stairs but I enjoyed it.

    Hi Bill,

    Thanks for your great summary review of your stay with us in Marigot Bay. It's wonderful to hear you found our place to be peaceful and a recommended honeymoon spot! We would agree; we cater to travelers who like to be somewhat "away from it all" but still not too far removed from all the necessities (Marigot Bay has restaurants, bank, etc). So you're right, it's not a place to party by any means. It's a place to relax, unwind, watch the ships go by, and is also a great central hub for exploring the island and all its attractions.

    All the best on your future travels! :)

    We stayed at Oasis Marigot late October, and had a great visit. The accommodations are very clean, spacious, and comfortable. The views are spectacular and we had the best sunset view of all. Miranda in the office couldn't have been nicer and was so helpful to us in planning daily activities. It is an expensive island to visit, for transportation and food, but we enjoyed everything we did. The people of the island are great and quite friendly.
