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

What a great place to stay! Large, comfortable rooms, friendly homely atmosphere with a communal lounge/tv area, great breakfast and an absolutely amazing hostess. Glynis is incredibly service minded, generous in lending out snorkel equipment, sun-umbrellas etc and always prepared to provide packed breakfasts or lunches. She even allowed us to use her kitchen one evening as we were tired... More
