“We discovered St Lucia after taking part in a transatlantic sailing race in 2006. We must have called in at nearly 20 Caribbean island but St Lucia was the pick of them. Property-wise it offers better value than Barbados. It also has incredibly warm people and great food and nightlife. The fact the apartment could be totally managed for us when we weren’t there sold it to us. Had we bought in France, we’d be constantly sorting maintenance problems and doing odd jobs. There are no worries like that at The Landings – it’s run like a hotel.”

Nick and Annie Haigh from Devon.

“St Lucia is idyllic. I was looking for somewhere to buy a second home and St Lucia was around 40 per cent cheaper than Barbados. Plus I could see there was potential for values to increase.”

“The whole development is in an immaculate condition, even ten years on. The architecture is beautiful and our apartment has views over the marina, so we can watch boats come and go, something which is particularly popular with visitors.”

Jonathan and Dedie Hickling from Surrey

“This isn’t just a holiday home for us now. We know all the staff and the locals and feel part of the community. This is our stress-free holiday home from home and we love it.”

“We loved the Caribbean but thought buying a property so far away from home would be fraught with difficulty. We were blown away by The Landings – especially when we discovered how easy it was to buy property on the island.”

Jeff and Tracey Brinley from Cheltenham
