    This was our first visit to St. Lucia (Rodney Bay). Great place! The apartment was in a perfect, peaceful location, with a wonderful outlook. We were welcomed on our arrival and made to feel very comfortable. A lovely 2 bedroomed modern apartment… like home from home. It was clean and well maintained. Rodney Bay is a great place for things to do, with a lovely beach nearby and great restaurants. We will definitely return.

    We stayed in Villa Frangipani at The Reserve for 9 nights in January. We loved the condo and the location. It is very spacious and well equipped and plenty of towels were supplied. With the windows, patio and balcony doors open, there was a great breeze and we never needed the AC. There are no security concerns with The Reserve entrance being locked and a guard on duty at night. It is very convenient to restaurants (we liked Tapas On the Bay which is right around the corner), grocery stores, shopping and a casino. Once we found that we could get to the beach by going in near Marie’s (where we had an awesome lunch) instead of all the way down to Spinnakers, the beach was not too far away. The owner was very helpful in providing information before our arrival. The property manager, Zan helped make sure we had what we needed while we were there and was available if we had any questions. She arranged out airport transfers – VIP to the condo and helicopter return along with a tour. They were all booked through Serenity and everything booked through Serenity went very smoothly. The pool and grounds were very well kept. The groundskeeper, Mark went out of his way to be friendly and helpful and even prepared a great lunch for us one day while giving us a cooking lesson. Danica kept the condo spotless and helped me figure out the stove and washer. I would definitely recommend a stay. In Villa Frangipani and would want to stay there if I return to St Lucia.

    Thank you for such a lovely review and hope to be able to welcome you back sometime in the future! Admittedly one of the main features of The Reserve is its tranquil setting within, whilst minutues walking distance to all ammenities. It is a pleasure that you enjoyed its features to the fullest including Marc's cookings skills!

Tropical getaway to remember !!

I stayed at The Reserve for 5 days while on a working vacation and enjoyed the time immensely. The Reserve was a welcomed destination after a long day and a half of traveling. When I arrived the housekeeper, Irene, was there to meet me and show me the condo and I met Mark, the groundskeeper, who was friendly and helpful as well. The Reserve is conveniently located near groceries, restaurants and shops, all within walking distance. When not working, I spent most of my time reading by or floating in the pool and sightseeing. Having a fully equipped kitchen was a plus, it was easy to prepare meals and more importantly, coffee. There was a really enjoyable breeze/wind during my stay that kept the condo comfortable enough to go without using the air conditioner once. I've recommended St. Lucia and The Reserve to all my friends and am looking forward to when I can go back!

Wow ! We have just had a holiday of a lifetime at 'The Reserve' at Rodney Bay thanks to Kevan and Cheryl, owners of 'Be Special' holidays.
The appt at 'The Reserve' in Rodney Bay is amazing ! It is spacious, stylishly furnished and in a brilliant location only a few minutes walk to all amenities. To the rear of the property is a lovely garden which is maintanined every day and a beautiful pool which is cleaned every day and is right on the edge of the marina.
At The Reserve you have the choice of being independant or being treated like royalty.
We did both ! Cooking in is a dream as the kitchen is so well equipped, with every conceivable piece of equipment you would ever Require ! But if you would rather be waited on , Lisa will be on hand to cook breakfast, lunch and dinner for you and boy is she a good cook ! 
The appt was kept immaculate every day by Slyvia, with fresh towels in abundance !
There is a huge TV with satellite and DVD , which my partner loved for watching sport etc
The bedrooms have A/C and a ceiling fan and the beds are very comfortable !
No need to worry about transport to and from the airport, you will have a chauffeur driven car awaiting you, with ice cold towels and refreshments on hand ( rum punch included) !
With Kevan and Cheryl's knowledge of the island, they will help ensure that anything you may like to can be arranged. 
We had great fun fishing off the jetty and snorkeling in the pretty bays close by.
The reserve is in a very quiet position and so made for a very peaceful but fun holiday.
There is so much to do and see in St Lucia , if you are looking for a high standard of accommodation. Look no further. 
Also , in addition for anyone on a gluten free diet, there is quite a variety of products in all supermarkets and health shops. I was in my element as this is something that I do worry about whilst away.

The Reserve does have there very own pastry chef at hand too, should you need fresh bread or cakes etc baking. 
Book, you won't be disappointed ! We'll be back !!
