About Nancy Blackwell
I lived in St. Lucia from the early 1980's until 2011. Tamarind House was a private home and always open to friends and family. It is now open for memorable family gatherings by renting on VRBO. I can answer almost any question you might have about the Soufriere area. And I have a wide circle of people who can help to make your holiday a dream come true.
Why Nancy Blackwell chose Soufriere
Wonderfully large space, room for everyone to have their own space but be together as well. Fantastic staff who cook fabulous meals.

Family Holiday spot
The destination was everything we expected based on the VRBO listing and conversations with Owner. Owner was delightfully helpful in all matters when we planned our week-long activities in advance of arrival. After arrival the staff knew what we needed, even before we did, and provided exceptional service. Everything we experienced led our family to wholeheartedly agree this home is one to which we all would happily return. The Owner has a wealth of experience as a host and she makes her guests feel right at home.
Tamarind House and the lovely people who work there were the highlights of our vacation. We have been fortunate enough to travel to several continents and we have never had a villa or a view that compares. There were dozens of things that contributed to our happiness... open-air rooms and showers, fresh flowers, locally-sourced coffee, beautiful artwork, best eggs ever, friendly people and more.
No picture or review could do this property or the staff justice, so the best I can say is out of five stars, this is a ten!
Tamarind House would be great for couples or large families. It is built into the mountainside, like much of St. Lucia, so guests need to be able to do a couple of flights of stairs. Ann and Cheryl make delicious food. We highly recommend the pasta salad, the homemade ice cream, the eggs with chives, banana cake and more. Hire Chef Basil (pronounced Bah- sell) for at least one evening and the leftovers will carry you through lunch the next day.
If you go to Anse Chastanet (the nearest beach access), make a stop at the beach bar for Yannik's special mai tai. Don't believe anyone else who says they make it just like he does!!! When you are ready for the beach, skip right over what you see initially (other than the snorkeling to the left) and ask for directions to Anse Mamin. Follow the path to a much more secluded beach, that still has bathrooms, drinks and wonderful burgers. Make sure to say "hi" to Anthony. He will be the one picking up every stray leaf and rock to keep Anse Mamin pristine! For a special treat, pay for a chair package there ($60 at the time of our stay) and get two beach chairs, an umbrella, 2 large bottles of water and two glasses of juice, to support your beach day.
Thank you Nancy, for sharing your amazing home. Thanks to Ann, Cheryl, Zilia, Paul and Dillion for their kindness, hard work, beautiful spaces and delicious food. Thanks to the people of St. Lucia for welcoming us and sharing their special island. Simply awesome.
The house was absolutely beautiful and perfect for our stay. The staff could not have been any nicer, and the food they prepared was delicious. We enjoyed meals prepared by Chef Basil on the patio with the best views on the island. We hope to return to the Tamarind house soon.
Tamarind House is breathtaking!
Tamarind House is a gorgeous property with amazing views of the Pitons and Caribbean. Our family stayed and enjoyed the hospitality by the staff and delicious meals that were prepared. We loved our stay and had a wonderful time in St. Lucia!
Thank you for visiting St. Lucia. I am so glad you enjoyed my home. I am lucky to have such wonderful staff.
