Better late then never! My wife and I stayed at Espoir in February for 3 weeks. We both arrived recovering from health problems but left so much better. If you want noise, entertainment and crowds, do not go there! If you are looking for a genuine welcome, wonderful views and tranquility, you will find nowhere better. 2 wonderful hosts who... More

Truly a spectacular place to visit; these people (Keith and Sabine) make you feel welcome 24/7. We appreciated their great knowledge and helpfulness in making our trip special. The gardens and view at Apartment Espoir are incredible, and I can't imagine a more perfect place to stay. Enjoyed every moment!

When we stay at places with lots of recent reviews on Tripadvisor, and when we agree with those reviews, we usually do not bother to write our own review, as there seems little to add. But this place, and Keith and Sabine who run it, are so special that it is hard to resist adding our own thoughts. This was... More

Our family of seven stayed at Apartment Espoir from Christmas to New Years and found it a lovely and relaxing spot. We had a two bedroom apartment and the Palm Cottage. The pool was just steps from the bedroom door of the cottage. Because St. Lucia is so mountainous, you are going up and down a lot, but this location... More

For the third time I was able to spend a week in the very nice property of Apartment Espoir. The Apartments are all spacious, very well equipped and clean. Unsurpassable is the view of the great balcony to the ocean and the green valley below. The walk to the shore is short (less than 5 minutes) - you come along... More

Sabine and Keith were really helpful and friendly. They made us feel very welcome even though we were only staying en route to Martinique and then again on our way back. The view from the apartment is wonderful and the beach is really close and you can eat there or in the apartment. Thanks for your hospitality .Highly recommended

We stayed with Sabine and Keith for 10 days, and it was a GREAT time. More than enough space in the appartment, kitchen, fridge and air condition worked perfectly, it was clean and safe.
