Wonderful stay with great hosts
"My sisters, niece, brother-in-law from Quebec and I had a very comfortable stay in the two bedroom apartment. The cleanliness of the place, the nicely equipped kitchen, the pool and the therapeutic spa tub were some of the few great things that made our stay so enjoyable. The high light of Blue Skies is the very warm hosts who were always ready to help you by: giving you information about what you can see or do in St. Lucia, booking restaurants or any activities, by printing the weather forecast, they even gave us a local orientation tour of the area and accompanied us to the Friday night Jump Up and the exposition for the 30 year anniversary for the independence. I definitely didn't expect as much from our hosts. Hope to return soon to Blue Skies and visit St. Lucia again. Louise from Vancouver"

What great hosts!
"We stayed with Simon and Francine in January of 2009 and were treated exceptionally well. You can't go wrong here folks. We were picked up at the airport by Simon and driven north through the Rainforest to their lovely apartment. Very clean rooms, a/c, great kitchen, 2 bathrooms, pool is super clean, attention throughout our stay for any of our needs. Great source of local information and we were also given a local orientation tour of the area. The jumpup in Gros Islaet is a must see and Francine drove us to that as well. We'll certainly stay with these great hosts again! The Likely Crew"

"Blue Skies Apartments, we were so impressed with our accomadation, it exceeded our expectations. We booked our wedding day on nearby Pigeon Island and wanted a relaxing, quiet apartment to stay in. Blue Skies met all of our criteria and more. Our one bed apartment had a huge spa tub, a beautiful kitchen, living room, dining room and our own terrace. Francine and Simon gave us lots of information on the island, gave us advise on the best places to visit, dine and we relaxed on beaches that only the locals know about. We would definetly visit Blue Skies again, and recommend it to anyone wanting to visit the gorgeous island of St Lucia."

"Booked the apartment for 2 weeks whilst visiting St. Lucia for my sister's wedding. The quality and standard of the apartment itself far exceeded our expectations. Extremely well furnished and comfortable, with lots of attention to detail. Nice living area, with fantastic sofas, two excellent shower rooms. A new shared pool & Jacuzzi had just been completed on arrival, which is ideal for families or those looking to stay fit whilst away. The location is favorable, with the local Super J's (supermarket) within walking distance (even allowing for the heat). Other shops, restaurants and the nearest beaches are a short drive away (10 minutes maximum!) A great choice for families with young or older children, or for two couples. Will definitely be back!"

Had Blue Skies
"My wife and I stayed in the 1 bedroom apartment for 2 weeks in June 2008. I must say, this was our first visit to the Caribbean and the whole experience was amazing. The owners of Blue Skies were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. The local area was beautiful and peaceful and catered for all our needs. Friendly people, excellent restaurants and awesome beaches. If you plan on visiting, please consider a higher factor sun tan lotion around the mid 30's as I stupidly got burnt very quickly in the first couple of days. But other than that St Lucia was truly beautiful, and the stay in Blue Skies made it even more enjoyable. Thanks for your warm hospitality and hope to see you again next year. *****stars (Excellent) Highly recommended. Rgds Brandon and Geri"
