SunWest has grown from a love of the island, St. Lucia. This love affair began in 1992, when stepping off the plane felt like passing through a picture frame into another world. The lushness, stunning beauty, rhythmic sounds and friendly St. Lucian's made a yearly visit a necessity.  With a background in Architecture and Engineering, it seemed a natural progression to design and build in St. Lucia. Each time guests arrive, I feel like I am seeing St. Lucia through their eyes again for the first time. My goal is to ensure all who visit SunWest Villa receive a personalized vacation. I am happy to share my 25 years of adventures so they too may experience all the beauty and excitement St. Lucia has to offer. Please take the time to read my daughter's poem which she composed at 13 years of age, following a vacation in St. Lucia.  It explains why we always returned to our island in the sun.


There is a place far from here
 where chimes of steel
 sing songs, hot rays of sun pour from the sky
 happy people dance and chant, with no worries or cares,
 a place where you can be free. It is not a normal place to my friends,
 To me it is a home away from home.
 It is a magical dream to them that they hope will come true.

To me it is where I spend my best years letting my feeling flow.
 It is the hot, exotic pictures in magazines and shows to them.
 To me it is where my soul can sing and my mind can relax.
 It is what they all ask me about….
 What is the sea, sand, weather, life like there?"
 To me the sea is like a warm cola that has been
 shaken shattering refreshing, salty water running down my body.
 To me the sand is hot and grindy, melting through my toes.
 To me the weather is refreshing, steamy but healthy.

 To me life is free, no worries, no cares.
 It is amazing to them, a dream, a fantasy.
 To me, it is my life, my home, where I belong.
 If they wish, I will continue to explain this dream,
 but no matter how hard I try,
 they will not be able to feel my heart pounding
 when I speak of my
 home away from home.
