We stayed in Hummingbird Deck, and it was ideal. We were both working 40 hour weeks on UK hours, and we found we had plenty of space to work comfortably, and separately when needed. The house is in a quiet residential area, and the only thing that could distract us was the beautiful view. The wifi was fast and covered the whole property well, and the breakfast bar made an excellent office space.
We loved the terrace, which we ate most of our meals on and enjoyed afternoon naps and sunsets from. Both the inside of the apartment and the terrace are so large that we didn't feel at all confined. I had plenty of room to use my yoga mat indoors, and the house is pleasantly cool, especially under the ceiling fans.
Both bedrooms and bathrooms were lovely, there would be no problem with a family or two couples staying here. We found the four poster bed very comfortable and loved seeing the view of the sea from the bed as it got light. We only ever needed the AC for a 15-20 minute blast at bedtime.
The showers ran well, with good pressure and hot water, especially from the hand-held hose in the en-suite. We were mindful though to use the shower only to rinse instead of continuously to conserve water.
The kitchen is incredibly well equipped - we made pizzas from scratch, cooked full meals, made break, and baked, and there was nothing we were missing.
The Lookout really is about the views - they were amazing. The scenery changes so often you don't need a TV! During our stay we saw a sailing regatta, many beautiful sunsets, and the eruption of La Soufriere (though I hope this never becomes a regular view). Chris and Louise were kind enough to give us the key to the Ocean Deck apartment when it was empty, so we could use the sun deck and take in the views from a higher point.
Towards the end of our stay, when the volcano erupted, Chris and Lou were very attentive at what must have been a very stressful time. The apartment, with all windows and doors closed, stayed free of ash. It also stayed comfortably cool.
Obviously we didn't take any walks from the apartment, but Chris and Lou picked up Mac's Pizza for us on our first night, and a mid-stay takeaway from Petra's at Lower Bay - both were excellent. We could see Lower Bay clearly, and it was obvious how close the beaches are. The advantage of The Lookout's position, other than the amazing views, is being high enough above the beach to limit the amount of mosquitos, and to get a cooling breeze.
We had everything we needed - a welcome basket of groceries to supplement our own, a local phone with credit should we need to make local calls, a bluetooth speaker, toiletries, mosquito repellent, comfy lounge chairs for the deck... there was nothing missing.
Covid protocols were all followed - when Chris and Louise visited they wore masks and didn't enter the apartment, and they helped us by following up our second PCR test details with the nurse.
We had such a wonderful stay, and the ease of being in such a lovely environment coupled with having such kind and friendly hosts has made our big move all the easier.
