Some of you have asked for more details about our apartment. We rented through VRBO and live in the Marina Village at the Marigot Bay Yacht Haven. This is our building – we are around the side.
This is our street – looking left and right. The building with the blue roof is the police station. The water taxi to the beach and restaurants is a few steps away.
There is a Hyatt resort next door, but they are very picky about who goes there. But that’s ok – our goal is to live like locals, not be tourists. And we love the local hang-outs. (We can spot the hotel guests because they have to wear a wristband and look a little scared to leave their compound.)
Frank is the man about town and knows all the taxi drivers, gate guards, and dock guys – they all share fishing stories. When I go out with him, they all wave and greet “Mr. Frank.”
There is a lot of action in the Bay. New boats anchor every night. We also get a steady stream of cruise ship guests heading to shore excursions, which is fun. A few times a day big catamarans playing music do a twirl through the Bay for the cruise ship guests to take pictures of what they say is the most beautiful bay in the Caribbean (we agree!).
Now for a tour of the apartment . . .
We have a spacious lounge and well-equipped kitchen. Plus 3 bathrooms and laundry.
We have two bedrooms, so we can spread out and I can use one as an office (I am still working remotely after all).
But the best is the balcony. It is deep and fully covered, so we can sit out here even in the rain.
I am writing this blog as the sun goes down.
One thought on “Our Apartment in Marigot Bay”
I love reading your blog. Your apartment looks fantastic. How did you find it? Brian and I are looking for something in the Caribbean for possibly next winter. I was going to text you, but somehow your number has disappeared form my contacts.
Enjoy your time in St. Lucia. Best to Mr. Frank.
