This is a very good option for a stay in St Lucia. Well priced, with clean rooms and great location. Walking distance to lovely restaurants in town and one street back from the main road means it is nice and quiet. Walking distance to the hippo boat ride. Debbie was so friendly, and gave great advice on activities. She also... More

Excellent service. The host helped for booking and provided us with the equipment for our tours. The rooms are good and quiet. The Guest house is in a small town with good restaurants near to the nature park.

We stayed three nights in a lofty room with large windows where you feel like sleeping in the trees. Philippe is a perfect host and can help you with advice and bookings of everything there is to do around here. Breakfast is amazing!

We spent two nights in a familily room, a really nice comfy room with wide windows giving on the nature. Our hosts was so nice and attentive. We arrived just before Christmas and she found for us a booking for a safari at the last minute. We would recommand this place.

A most comfortable spot in a quiet residential street in St Lucia, only a few minutes walk from the shops and restaurants. We had a very large, light and airy room and the breakfast was first class. With the charming and helpful Glynis in charge one could not wish for better.

What a lovely guest house in a perfect location on a quiet road, but within easy walking distance of McKenzie Street & it’s restaurants, market, shops & supermarket. And Glynis was just the most perfect of hosts – surely she would win the “Best Host of St Lucia 2014” if such an award was available. We all would certainly vote... More
