Rooms clean and tidy, quiet aircon, ditto the surrounding area with a background of waves gently breaking on the shore.Sunsets,tick,palm trees,tick,well behaved dogs/cats, tick.

The Bay Guesthouse is perfect to spend a few days to a full week on St-Lucia: Very comfortable and clean (we stayed in the apartment upstairs and it is very spacious with an amazing balcony with a unique view on Rodney Bay), the hosts are very nice and welcoming, the location is perfect to have a feel of the island...

Stephanie and Will are very accommodating hosts, flexible and very helpful. Dyson, the night host, is a lovely young man and we thank him for all his help. We used our kitchenette for breakfast almost daily, went around the corner for fresh-baked rolls. Several good restaurants are within walking distance, and of course the world-famous Gros Islet street party on... More

Our accommodations were clean , comfortable and exactly as friends described. The owners, Will and Stephanie, made us feel welcomed and anticipated our every need. This is mot a 5 Star luxury resort, but a guesthouse on the shore at the edge of a small fishing village. The bedroom were air conditioned for our comfort. The kitchen was equipped with... More

Great place to stay and to experience the real Caribbean. At first, Gros Islet was a bit overwhelming but the culture shock soon wore off. All of the St Lucians we met were friendly and welcoming. We booked one of the ground floor rooms overlooking the ocean. The room is basic but that's why it is so affordable and good... More

Starting off, communication with Will was a breeze. He was always responsive and was able to help us arrange transportation from UVF to the guesthouse. He was there to greet us, even though we got in later than expected. We stayed in the two bedroom apartment, which is upstairs, in order to have a view. The apartment is very spacious... More

Thank you for your feedback, we do appreciate it. We always like to hear from guests about ideas for improvements and as such the wall between the two bedrooms now reaches the ceiling, for more privacy. Each bedroom now has its own air conditioning unit meaning even faster cooling down! Also in the Two Bedroom Apartment there is a new... More

A proper self contained apartment, including a small, well equipped kitchen. The inside area is well furnished but to be honest we spent most of our time on the terrace, enjoying the fabulous views. The a/c was effective, however it's restricted to the bedroom areas only. The location is good for Gros Islet (especially if you're there for the Friday... More

We loved our week at the Bay Guesthouse. It has a fantastic spot right on the water, between two beaches, and 2 mins walk from the main street of Gros Islet. Which, by the way, we loved. Yes it's a bit rough round the edges but we felt safe and most of the locals very friendly. We've only ever staying... More
