We spent 6 weeks at Dare's this summer. There were four of us in apartment two. Dare and his family were so welcoming and friendly. They would do anything and everything they could to help if we had a problem and make our stay better. The apartment itself was great. Two bedrooms with a double and single bed in each... More

Stayed here for 5 weeks in July/August 2015. Dare and his family made us feel very welcome & couldn't have done more to help us. Gave us a local phone to use whilst we were there with a number of a great taxi driver. Transport was arranged every morning to the hospital and if you have any medical complaint whilst... More

We were very well looked after by the Ogunlusis. They took us straight to the supermarket to get food, gave us a lift into hospital every day and gave us mangos from their garden. Whilst we were here,we had a few problems, but Dr Ogunlusi let us use his phone to call home. There are 3 separate flats so you... More

Great place for anyone doing an elective in St Lucia, Castries. We were here for 9 weeks in total and Dare and his family couldn't have been more welcoming. They provided us with a mobile phone and took us straight to the supermarket to make sure we had the necessary supplies. Additionally, they showed us around Castries and the surrounding... More

I'm another British elective student who stayed in flat 3 for 6 weeks in April-May. There isn't much I can add to the glowing reviews below except to say they're spot on - the facility is perfect for elective students. Dare and his family were extremely welcoming & helpful at every turn. The house feels very safe & is well... More

I stayed at the shortstay facility with a friend for just under 4 weeks. The whole experience was amazing. We were kindly picked up from Hewanorra airport by Dr Dare who owns the facility along with his wife. We were given a brief tour and taken to the local market to collect some food. All beyond what we were expecting.... More

I stayed here with two friends whilst on my medical elective in St Lucia. After reading previous reviews I had high hopes and I was not disappointed. Dr Ogunlusi and his family were excellent hosts and made our stay so much more enjoyable. Dr Ogunlusi picked us up from the airport and gave us a short tour of the local... More

I stayed in one of Dare's apartments with a friend for four weeks as part of our medical elective. In short, our stay was fantastic. Dare collected us from the airport, showed us around the town, pointed out local markets and attractions and gave us a local mobile phone for use whilst we were on the island. The phone was... More

Myself and 2 friends stayed here for our medical elective in Victoria Hospital. Really great accommodation. Everything you could need and the most perfect hosts. Easy to get in and out of town on the local buses (about 50p a trip) and Dr Ogunlusi often gave a lift to the hospital in the morning. Pretty sure this was one of... More
