Many guests ask if they should rent a car or 4-wheel drive vehicle.  We always say that a car makes more things possible, but it is not necessary…….depending on what You want to do (or not do) on Your holiday.  A 4-wheel drive vehicle is not necessary, unless you plan to do a lot of off-road driving.  There are taxis for hire and we know some good drivers, and the local transport buses are cheap and plentiful -- but you have to walk a mile down the road to the main highway to catch one. 

We recommend:

Taxi Cabs & Drivers: St. Lucia Taxi Drivers have an Association and there are many good drivers at the airports. However, we have made arrangements with Owen Victor of Owen’s Taxi Service on a preferred rate. He will have “Your Name” on a sign at the airport if you have pre-arranged for him to meet you. His cell phone is: (758) 286-7905. His charges to the villa are between $80.00 to $120.00US dollars from Hewanorra and $20.00 to $30.00US from George Charles Airport, depending on the number of people. We will be happy to contact him and make arrangements for you if you let us know in advance.

Owen is also available for sightseeing and shopping trips which you can arrange with him. Also, if you decide not to rent a vehicle, there are taxis available from the Windjammer Landing Resort next door.

Car Rental: It is recommended that you make arrangements for a car rental before you arrive. We use Guy’s Car Rentals. They usually do a good job for our guests and Guy’s rates tend to be lower than Avis or Hertz.

Make sure you check for any damage and scratches and have them documented before you rent the car. Also check the spare tire. We mention this because when you leave, these are the things they check, and if they are not listed you may not get your security deposit back.

Driver’s License: You will also have to get a St. Lucia Visitor’s Driver’s License that the rental car agent can give you. It is good for 3 months and costs $20.00US.
