Oh my goodness. I can’t say enough about the wonderful time we had at Beau Rivage this past week. We had the best family vacation ever. It was 11 of us and the ages ranged from 14-61. The majority of us are ages 30-40 and are very active. Everyone had a great time.
The villa is beautiful and is located in a great spot. There were two beaches that we visited daily each was a short walk away. One beach was great for watersports and the other for snorkeling. The water was crystal clear and the beaches were not crowded at all.
We played group volleyball, waterskied, went water tubing, sailing, and snorkeling. There were a couple of days when we just went out into the backyard, fired up the grill and had pool parties. The villa was perfect. The staff seasoned the food for the backyard cookouts. We utilized the outdoor surround speaker system for musical entertainment while we swam and hung out in the hot tub. The staff cooked breakfast and lunch for us everyday and the food was excellent! Fedora and Odessa were great. They were so helpful and our group just fell in love with them. Fedora made sure she brought us a couple of Mangos when she found out it was my husband’s favorite fruit. George drove us everywhere we wanted to go and Kris Wagner arranged the tours for us. She was the “make it happen” lady. Our family is accustomed to staying in all-inclusive resorts for our family vacations, but this time we wanted to try something a little different.
I can tell you that this vacation was far better than all the others. There was something for everyone to do at all times. We visited the Volcano, took a mud bath, hung out under the waterfall, took a day sail trip, visited a cocoa plantation, got massages, snorkeled, and just truly enjoyed each other’s company. The only regret we each had was not booking the home a few days more. The owner thought of everything. Anything you could need, is already in place. If you are looking for a great time and just want to enjoy each other I highly recommend Beau Rivage. I planned this family vacation and I feel sorry for the next person who has to plan the family vacation because this vacation set the bar pretty high.
Sue ( the owner) was extremely helpful. She made sure I had all the contacts and places to go before we even made it to St. Lucia. During the week she called in to check on us and to see if there was anything we needed. Everything was first class. I can’t say enough about the place.

Rainbows, reconnecting, and relaxation
Our family of 4, (parents and 2 teens), just returned home after a fabulous 8 day stay at Beau Rivage. We miss it already! I appreciated Sue, the owner, taking time to talk with me on the telephone before we arrived and sharing insight about the area so that we could make the most of our time on the island. We were so glad that we took Sue’s advice to have a car pick us up at the airport and have a rental car delivered to the villa.
It was such a treat to be dropped off at the door of the villa, greeted by house manager Kris, and to have a delicious meal prepared by Theresa waiting for us! The villa itself exceeded our expectations for luxury and comfort. We especially enjoyed the iPod docking station allowing us to play our music inside, outside, at the pool, etc. Every amenity needed for a fabulous vacation is in this villa! The design is perfect for large or small groups- we only used 3 bedrooms and it didn’t feel too large, yet we could imagine coming back with extended family and still having enough space to spread out. The pool, hot tub and outdoor space are like having your own private resort. Theresa and Fedora pampered us daily with delicious meals and kept the villa looking fabulous!
Highlights included walking to both beaches for swimming, dining and snorkeling, hiking at Pigeon Island, rainbows almost daily, blender drinks at the villa swim up bar, and dining at The Edge restaurant where we enjoyed one of the best meals we’ve ever eaten in an amazing, sunset setting. This was a vacation we will never forget and we’re already looking at our calendars to plan our next visit! Thank you Sue and your wonderful staff for giving us a much needed winter break in complete luxury!

Our stay at Sue’s place in Cap Estate in St. Lucia was perfect. Really and completely. The ten of us flew in from various cold places throughout the country and were thrilled to land at Beau Rivage. Notes on the place: The home is clean, well-kept, and so well designed for a group. We spent a lot of time on the porch. I stayed in the guest house with our two-year-old and loved being a few meters away. And has a great speaker system: bring your iPod!
The computer has a great internet connection. One of our favorite parts was the quick walk to the beach – five minutes down the road, and a perfect swimming spot. Other things we did: a few hours of drinks at LeSport; a family boat ride to Soufriere, with snorkeling, mud baths (skip the waterfall) and lunch at Dasheene; a fishing trip (1 marlin and 2 barracuda caught) and a dinner at a local beach spot, Margories. We saw double rainbows everywhere. The staff was excellent, from start to finish, and helped make all arrangements. THANK YOU for the delightful wonderful sunny vacation.

Milestone Birthday Celebration in St Lucia a Big Hit!
I chose Beau Rivage as the surprise destination for my beau and 9 of our closest friends to celebrate his milestone birthday. The weather was beautiful, the food deliciously prepared and eye appealing to boot, and oh the rum punch—to swoon over. The villa was immaculate and as described on the website. Each bedroom had its own charm and the great room, patio and pool areas were ideal. Everyone commented that even though the villa was quite a showplace – beautiful wood, tiles, amenities, decor — it still felt cozy and gave everyone such a comfort level that Sue’s (the owner) home felt like our home. It was grande!.
Both Sue and Kris (the manager) went over and above to address all facets of our stay. Kudos also to Cecilia, Fedora and Dwayne for their excellent care while on the property. Needless to say a good time was had by all. I would highly recommend Beau Rivage for a luxurious stay. Can’t wait to visit St. Lucia again!
-Cheryl M., VRBO
The house, pool, location and staff were everything that was promised and more. 3 adults and 5 teenage girls had a great time with loads of space, privacy and attentive service.

Absolutely Wonderful 50th Birthday Celebration
I just recently returned from a week at Beau Rivage! 7 Ladies came together from various places in the US to celebrate my 50th Birthday. After speaking with Sue when we first chose St Lucia I knew this would be a vacation to remember. The Villa is just so beautiful and perfect for all 7 of us! Kris was extrememly helpful with all our questions prior to arriving in St Lucia and then once we were on the Island. We all cannot say enough about Cecilia and Fedora! They were both delighful and the food was so very good – I agree the Mahi Mahi was the best, but we all loved the Omelets also. Dwayne was there to answer our questions at night, if we needed anything. The Villa is in a beautiful location and we were close to all the activies we wanted! George and Barbara were there whenever we needed a driver and both were great! George took us on a tour of the Island and we had a blast! All 7 of us fell in love with the Island of St Lucia and would love to return again one day. Thank you Sue – you have a beautiful home and we enjoyed our week there.

Christmas in Paradise
Wonderful Christmas in Paradise!
“Eleven of us to celebrate our 50th Wedding Anniversary and Christmas in Paradise. Two grandparents, two sons and their wives, and five grandchildren. Fun had by all. Sailing, Ziplining, horseback riding, and lots of good food and drink. The villa worked out great for us – Cecilia, Dwayne, Fedora, and Kris were wonderful. Would come back in a heart beat!!! St. Lucia is a great mix of beach, mountain,ocean and rainforest. The people, cuisine and scenery are amazing

Amazing place to vacation- had the perfect place for family to stay for my wedding!
Oh wow. What a beautiful home!! Absolutely gorgeous! Everything I had hoped it would be. Myself and 12 others stayed here for my wedding that took place in St. Lucia. From the beginning, everything went flawless. From the communications with the owners and managers, and even up to the stay! All rooms are excellent.. There is not a single bad room in this house!! The view is spectacular and found it to be in a great location for many excursions and cab transfers! The cooks prepared delicious meals and were willing to work with all of our pick-i-ness!! I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a get-away.. and also a perfect place for guests to stay for yoru wedding!!! Very reasonable compared to local all inclusive resorts..plus more privacy and more elegance!!! Thanks for making our stay so memorable!!

Paradise Vacation Home!!
Beau Rivage was all that we could have asked for and more! Even before our arrival, the owner, Sue, was more than helpful with coordinating and suggestions for our stay. She was ready and willing to answer any question we had. We came to Beau Rivage to celebrate our wedding anniversary, with kids in tow. We all had a fabulous stay! The house and the grounds are beautiful and well maintained. Cecilia made us excellent meals and took great care of us, as did our property manager, Kris. Kris was very helpful in planning our week and suggesting restaurants. She booked a morning of zip lining in the rainforest, something we will always remember! Our family really enjoyed lots of pool time in this beautiful, private setting. What a treat it was to stay there! We hope to come visit again, this time with another family, as the spacious layout would have accomodated us well.

12 Friends in Paradise!
Six couples from California to Massachusetts, gathering at Beau Rivage for some sun, fun, adventure, laughter and great memories. A trip of a lifetime! The villa was as beautiful as the pictures depicted. Very spacious, well thought-out design. Twelve people in one home, could have been a tad much, but, the house was quite large and spread-out that we were never on top of each other. The rooms were beautiful, large and every room had a bathroom-HEAVEN! The pool is to die for with the swim-up-Tiki Bar, the hit of the trip and the Jacuzzi over-looking the pool, a nice way to end the day. Another nice little surprise, the villa also had a gym, not that I used it, but to think if I actually wanted to while on vacation, I could, was just as nice. The entire staff, from day one of booking the trip one year ago (Kris and Sue, the Owner) were so informative and accommodating, always getting back to me immediately. Once we were there, Cecelia, Fedora and Dwayne, were so gracious. The food was amazing, you must have her prepare fresh Mahi Mahi (my mouth is watering as I’m typing). Susan, the Owner, went above and beyond what you would expect of an Owner. She was hands-on from day one of planning this trip, which made my life so much easier in trying to plan it for 12. She was beyond helpful in recommending excursions, places to eat, she even went as far as calling me one Sunday from Barbados, talking to me for almost an hour, to go over the entire island and what she thought we would like and organized a sailboat trip to the Pitons for the 12 of us (a must-do when on the island). Another must-do….zip lining through the rain forest, and booking “George” as your driver for the week. Such a sweet man, born and raised on the island, he knows everything there is to know, and he and his staff were always accommodating and on time. All and all, there were no negatives, except that we had to leave, but the memories will live on!

A Glorious, Unforgettable 9 Days…Beautiful Wedding Reception at Beau Rivage
We recently returned from an incredible vacation at Beau Rivage! Our family (9 adults), from Baltimore, MD, Greenville, SC, & Atlanta, GA, traveled to St. Lucia and gathered at Beau Rivage for our daughter’s wedding. From the moment we entered this beautiful villa, we felt comfortable, relaxed and pampered! I had spoken with the owner, Sue, by phone on several occasions prior to our arrival. She is passionate about her beautiful property, St. Lucia and making sure her guests have a wonderful stay. She gave us invaluable guidance, insight and suggestions about so many aspects of our trip. The design and layout of the villa ensures great privacy for each guest and wonderful socializing and relaxation spaces.
Several of us particularly loved gathering on the covered veranda in the early morning (prior to Teresa and Fedora’s arrival), sipping coffee, chatting, watching the sailboats head out, and enjoying the cozy occasional morning rainstorm. Teresa and Fedora would arrive and begin preparing breakfast (guests provide the groceries and the ladies will make whatever you request). The property manager, Kris, will coordinate having the home stocked with provisions upon your arrival…this is well worth the small convenience fee.
Teresa is a fabulous cook! We had fresh fish delivered to the house one day and Teresa made the most delicious dinner for us! Another night we had fried chicken! The groom’s family stayed at a nearby villa and came to Beau Rivage nearly every evening for dinner. Fedora made sure the villa was well-kept and she is the expert at decorating the cottage (in this case for the bride and groom…fresh flowers and greens on the bed spelling out a sweet sentiment…just beautiful)! The wedding was on Pigeon Island and the reception was held at Beau Rivage. We had the most gorgeous dinner table set up on the veranda. Chef Bobo from the Edge Restaurant catered the occasion.
All I can say is that everything was perfect! Every course of the dinner was absolutely delicious, beautifully presented and properly served. At the meal’s completion we headed poolside for dancing! The DJ set up on the porch of the cottage, the bartender served from the poolside tiki bar and we danced all night! Sue was on the island, stopped by the villa to make sure all was well and even joined in the dancing…loved having Sue and Sharon share in our joy! I could go on and on. The hardest part was leaving! Wonderful, lifelong memories!
The Perfect Vacation
We just returned from a week-long stay at Beau Rivage and could not have been more hesitant to leave. The home boasts every amenity you could want while traveling and a helpful staff that makes all the difference. St. Lucia is a stunning mountainous island. Unlike other Caribbean locales, it’s not packed with tourists and still has a very authentic culture and vibe. It’s about a 90+ minute drive to Soufriere where the pitons and hot springs are. We made a day-trip of it and actually loved driving down the coast through all the local towns.
Situated on the north side of the island, the house in stocked with everything you need to enjoy a stay away from home. We enjoyed many days just lounging by the pool. It’s also walking distance to a spectacular public beach, resort, spa, gym and restaurants. We rented a car for the week and while we made frequent trips to the grocery store, we rarely wanted to leave the comfort of Beau Rivage.
The resorts and tourism on the island are not entirely child-friendly. We traveled with 2 toddlers, and Beau Rivage was the perfect place. Child gates. High chairs. Cribs. A shallow jetted tub and pool for entertainment. A spacious veranda to play. A large tv to catch their favorite shows. We found it to be absolutely perfect for our group of 8 adults and 2 children.
Sue, Kris, Cecilia and the entire Beau Rivage team were so helpful. We’re grateful
for the wonderful week we got to spend in the home enjoying the island. Hope to visit again soon!
Great family hol!
What an unbelievable villa! After travelling on an 8 hour flight all the way from England the first thing we did when we arrived was jump in the pool and have drinks at the swim up bar. Beau Rivage is in a beautiful spot just minutes from the beach are and great restaurant, The Naked Fisherman.
This villa is spacious and beautifully decorated. We loved having BBQs on the veranda or by the pool listening to music on the surround speaker system. The cottage apartment is another great place to stay and has a lovely veranda to sit out under.
Over the 7 sunshining days we stayed at this villa we made so many memories that we brought home with us. Beau Rivage has definitely heard enough laughing to last it a lifetime. If you haven’t already booked this villa then what are you waiting for? Beau Rivage, we’ll be back again soon!
A stunning, beautifully maintained property
We brought ourselves and a large group of family members to this little piece of paradise and had the most wonderful Christmas we could have imagined! Upon arrival, the exquisite decorations made us feel immediately comfortable and in the spirit of the season. Kris, the property manager, and all the staff were most welcoming. It was certainly a Christmas to remember. The family all worked together in the kitchen Christmas morning to make Eggs Benedict for breakfast and then began the preparations for dinner. Our rolled stuffed turkey breasts turned out wonderfully.
We spent some days touring the island, zip-lining, fly-boarding, etc. and other days lounging around the pool enjoying exotic blender drinks at the swim up tiki bar. Provisioning was easy and close by. Cecilia, the cook, and her team fed us magnificently–diet time now! Thank you, Sue and your team, for a truly stupendous and memorable family vacation.
Exquisite Home in Paradise
This home is everything described and more. My husband and I just returned home and we are already missing it. The house is absolutely stunning but most importantly the service from Cecilia was impeccable. The breakfasts and dinners were fantastic.
We were celebrating my husbands 40th birthday and our 12 year anniversary and she went above and beyond to make our stay there memorable. This is a vacation we will never forget. We went on a tour with other couples staying at a nearby resort and our experience at the villa was much more personal and we learned so much more about the culture of the island from Cecilia and Donald the driver for the villa. He gave us a phone and when we wanted to go places we just called and he was there to pick us up.
You cannot get this kind of service from any resort. We would love to go back and bring our family. Thanks to Cecilia, Dewayne, Kris and Sue for making this vacation a trip of a lifetime.
Everything we hoped for and more
We spent a perfect week at Beau Rivage. We were met at the airport and promptly driven to the villa where Kris the property manager was waiting. She gave us details of the the area with a comprehensive list of things to do, and a tour of the villa, If we needed something we called Kris. She booked our tours for us(try the zip line) Meanwhile Cecelia cooked local dishes which were outstanding (fresh fish caught that morning)The week could not have turned out any better. Will be saving to go back
Fantastic House for Girl’s Trip!
I celebrated my 40th Birthday will 11 of my closet friends at Beau Rivage. The house was beautiful and the pool deck area was perfect for lounging & relaxing poolside. It accomodated our whole group with no problem which is a rare find on the island. The pool bar and hot tub was another excellant perk! The owner & property manager were wonderful during the entire planning preparations and during our stay. All of our questions were answered and they were so helpful the week we were there. Cecila & staff were awesome and the food was fantastic! They made sure that each and every lady had a wonderful time & a trip of a life time. I would definitely recommend Beau Rivage and anxiously await returning with my family one day.
Great for Families!
Recently spent a wonderful week at Beau Rivage. The pictures give a good description of the house which is very large and excellent for a large family group or multiple friends. The manager was very efficient and helpful even telling us to call during the night for emergencies. She even brought us spaghetti for supper the first night (when we were too tired to go out.) The house and grounds are well laid out and very clean. Cecelia and Fedora do an excellent job of taking care of the kitchen and house and are very friendly. The owner of the villa was most helpful in answering all my many questions ahead of time and helping us to look forward to our upcoming trip. The kitchen is well appointed and large and you can have Cecelia cook for you or do some of it yourselves. We found the outside porch to be very relaxing and an excellent place to read as it looked out over the swimming pool and ocean. Our kids enjoyed the swimming pool and hot tub daily.
About 10 min. drive away is Rodney Bay where there are large supermarkets and many restaurants. Also near-by are nice beaches. We visited 2 of them and the kids really enjoyed them. I would highly recommend this villa for a wonderful relaxing vacation. Thanks so much all of you!!
We have been here for almost 2 weeks and can only say that Beau Rivage is a slice of heaven. Cecelia, Fedora and the rest of the friendly staff have taken superb care of us. The food is terrific, the sights fantastic, the zip-line…scary. So much to see…so little time. Come to find your peace and tranquility here!!!!
