This villa is outstanding, it combines local and natural vibes with the luxury of staying in a 5* hotel. The villa is extremely well equipped. We stayed for almost 2 weeks and it felt like home. We had the use of the car which made life very easy. The location is perfect for getting just about everywhere you need to go in a few minutes. For us the villa provided the most magical holiday we have ever had and we will defiantly be returning. Thank you so much to rob and Veron for being excellent hosts.
From the time that we walked out of the airport into the van with Lloyd for the trip to the house, we knew we were in great hands. Rob saw to it that all of our needs were taken care of the entire trip - from a car at the villa at our disposal for when we were feeling brave to drive the winding local roads, to Stanis' taxi and tours taking us everywhere we wanted to go with the help of Lloyd and Lenny as our co-pilots, to Nancy who took care of the villa and even cooked us a local meal after a long day at the beach!!! The villa had all we could ask for to relax, enjoy and recharge from the busy work days that we were able to get away from in the States. The villa had many features that are hand crafted by Rob using local wood and other materials with doors that opened for the best breezes, roomy pool and patio area and not to mention the amazing rope hammock on the 2nd floor balcony over looking the beautiful Cap Estates neighborhood and golf and ocean views. We picked the location as it was far from the hustle and bustle of the cruise ship areas but still easy to get around in the villa car or Stanis, Lloyd or Lenny's roomy and reasonably priced shuttle cars. We will be going back to the island of St. Lucia and we will be staying with Rob at Villa Zatarra again!!
We stayed at Rob and Veron’s beautiful home at the end of January, 2018. This home is located in Cap Estate, in the north/central part of St. Lucia, a short drive from many beaches, shopping and restaurants. Since we were a party of 4 (2 adult couples), we only rented 2 bedrooms (with 2 full bathrooms), but larger groups can rent the entire home. Our space included a full kitchen, large living/dining area, adjoining TV room, and outdoor patio and pool. The home is spacious, clean and comfortable, and Rob and Veron are great hosts. Rob came to meet us in the morning, and gave us lots of useful info about beaches, activities and dining. On our first day, we noticed that the fridge wasn’t as cold as it should be, and Rob had a repairman there to fix it immediately (on a Sunday!). They also leave a cellphone for local calls/ emergency use, as well as beach chairs and towels. Rob is a well known musician on St. Lucia, so as an added treat, we purchased tickets to see him perform on a sunset cruise from Anse Chastanet Resort. All in all, we highly recommend this beautiful property, with wonderful hosts who welcome you to their home, and do everything they can to help you have a great vacation.
My husband and I and two other couples enjoyed a very relaxing week in St. Lucia at Rob and Verona’s lovely 3 bedroom home. Rob was an excellent host. He arranged for transportation to meet us at the airport for the 1 1/2 hour drive to the house. The drive was enjoyable as the first stop was to stop for beers and the second was to take pictures at a beautiful location overlooking a bay. Rob stopped by the next day to give us a little tour of the island,and pointed out several nearby beaches and restaurants to try. The grounds were lovely and the pool was very relaxing. Rob helped arrange a land and sea tour and also connected us with drivers to ferry us around. We did have a van (which was delivered to the house before we arrived) but we probably didn’t need it. We thoroughly enjoyed our week in St. Lucia and capped off the last night by going to dinner at the restaurant where Rob’s group was playing (he’s really talented!) and then on to the street party in Gros Islet for listening to music, drinking, tasting the local fare and plenty of people watching. We all had such a good time and can’t recommend it enough!!
We have stayed in several homes throughout the Caribbean and this one was my favorite. Rob is a great host. He showed us all around the island the first day so we knew where we were and where to go. Nancy the housekeeper was really great to us. We listened to Rob play music at a couple of places which was really fun. The house is well appointed, we had everything we needed. The pool and outdoor area are fantastic, we spent a lot of time there relaxing. We used the grill and. Cooked in a lot which was fun for our family. I would love to go with another family and use the house next door as well. My husband and son kiteboarded and you can see the kite beach from the house. My friend and I walked there every day. Our favorite beaches were at Windjammer, Body Holiday and Pigeon island. All very different from one another. The St. Lucian people are very friendly and welcoming. I love St. Lucia and Zatarra house!
Rob & Veron's house is just as pictured, infact nicer! Settled into the residential quiet area of the Cap Estate, it was a perfect home from home during our 2 week trip to St Lucia.
All worked perfectly, FAST internet connection in all rooms, cool seawater swimming pool, efficient a/c, comfortable sitting room, terraces, ample sunchairs and a fully equipped kitchen.... i could go on an on! All great an I am fussy!
The house was serviced by Nancy who left everything looking sparkling each day, clean towels when needed, changing bed sheets etc. The house was VERY clean.
Each time we visited one of the many large hotel resorts we counted our luck stars at having found this home - a little piece of heaven. Thank you! We really hope to return with our 3 children - a fabulous stay.
Villa Zatarra is a real dream home. Everything is just as pictures show. We had a lovely time. Villa is very comfortable and spacious and the owners are simply marvelous attending to your every need. The helper, Nancy is a gem, very accommodating and enjoys looking after the guests from A to Z. She adds her special decorative touch. Thanks Rob and Veron for making our stay the best home stay so far in St.Lucia. We definitely send you guys a hands up from the entire family
