    Angel, our primary housekeeper, together with Julianne, are on duty 7 days a week to ensure your stay is as comfortable and as enjoyable as possible. On your first morning, you will awake to a complimentary St Lucian breakfast, prepared by Angel and set up on the lounge dining deck over looking the Caribbean to get you in the mood for your stay. Angel and Julianne will prepare your breakfast each morning from what ever you purchase; your lunch - set upon which ever dining deck you choose and will prepare your evening meal and leave it for you to pop in the oven when you are ready. Angel will of course stay in the evening to cook and serve your evening dinner for an extra fee and these arrangements should be made directly with Angel herself. Angel and Julianne will wash any clothes you leave for them as part of your stay at Saline Reef, and for a small additional fee, Angel and Julianne will ensure your clothes are beautifully ironed - folded or hung in your wardrobe. Please make arrangements directly with Angel for the ironing services. It is great to have your clothes washed and ironed for going home!

    Alfie will ensure that all outside guest areas and pools are cleaned, beautifully laid out and ready for you each morning to enjoy the day ahead's activities. Alfie also ensures that Saline Reef is well looked after and maintained to a high standard. If you need anything 'fixed', Alfie will happily do it for you.  

    Special arrangements can be made at your request - for example, a professional chef can be brought in to create that special evening or you can have your own private masseuse at Saline Reef. Whatever you want to arrange at Saline Reef is only limited by your imagination. 

    Oliver, our gardener, will ensure each day that the garden is looking at its best, and to maintain all Saline Reef's wonderful flowers and plants which attract a large variety of St Lucia's amazing birds, especially the many hummingbirds that live in Saline Reef's garden.



    Please note, that our housekeepers are not trained nannies and should not be expected to look after and/or babysit infants or children. If you do make any baby-sitting arrangements directly with our house-keepers, please be advised that this will be at your own risk.

    SALINE REEF – SAM LYON – JULY 2013 From the moment we arrived at Saline Reef to the moment we left, we felt incredibly privileged to be there. It was another class of holiday - like flying first class. Location It is almost impossible to overstate how good the villa’s cliff-top location is. You could never tire of the views – some of the best in St Lucia - because there are so many. Wild seas, turquiose shallows, craggy coastlines, golden beaches, and the twinkling lights of Gros Islet and Rodney Bay are all on offer depending which of Saline Reef’s many vantage points you chose. Secondly, its grounds are extensive yet completely private. Once inside, you feel completely hidden from the outside world, yet never cut off because of the stunning views. The beautiful, vibrant garden is very well kept and the two pools are a suntrap for the vast majority of the day. Finally, everything you could need is within a ten-minute drive – from beaches, shops, the marina, banks machines, bars and restaurants and the spas of the two close by hotels, including the wonderful Cap Masion. Service The staff were fantastic. They ensured that our break in a stunning villa, was a truly relaxing holiday. They took care of everything - from all our meals and drinks, our cleaning, washing and even tourist information. Angel, the housekeeper and cook, and her team made us feel at home immediately. Nothing was too much trouble. Alfie had the pool cleaned each morning before we had even got up. You simply don’t get that level of personalized service, what you want, immediately you want it, in resorts. It is things like this that make Saline Reef so special. The House The house’s layout is great. Spacious, light and everything clean, crisp and fresh. Felt more like someone’s own home than a holiday home. Almost every room makes use of the stunning views – which means waking up at Saline Reef is a complete joy. It would be the perfect place for a group of friends, with each double room ensuite. The living room is huge and plenty big enough for six people to lounge around – although why you would ever want to move inside and leave the views, I’ve no idea. It is also fitted with all the latest modcons – large TV, dvd, music links for iphone’s, wifi - so you don’t need bring anything with you in terms of entertainment. Summary In short, Saline Reef is an incredibly special place. You can go to all manner of top, top end resorts, and have excellent service, good restaurants and idyllic grounds etc. But with Saline Reef you get all that, but you get it all to yourself. Complete and utter privacy in a villa that is as quality as any high-end resort. No fighting for sunbeds with other guests, no sharing secluded pools and gardens with other guests, no sticking with the same menu day after day. What you want, when you want it, in the privacy of your own first star villa. Would go back at the drop of a hat.



    A Simply Stunning Villa that has it all! – August 2013

    The views over the Caribbean are quite superb with the added bonus of stunning sunsets in the evening. The villa provides great accommodation with en-suite bathrooms and balconies overlooking the sea and the pools are beautiful and safe. Everywhere is maintained to the highest standard. There are plenty of amenities and lovely beaches in the area and it is impossible to recommend Saline Reef too highly. We had a great holiday and can't wait to visit again. As it was said to us - "Welcome to your own piece of Paradise". What more could anyone want?
