We were looking to splurge a little after staying at hostels for our whole trip, and Frederica's B & B, with its sparkling white tile and superb location, was the winner. Our room was tacky but bright and cool and comfy. The bathroom was decent but somehow cockroaches kept making their way in. I guess it wasn't really a big... More

Generally, we found this an acceptable place to stay - clean, well-maintained, and secure. The location is impeccable, yards from the beach, yet was still quiet - if you don't mind the occasional early morning macaw shriek. Breakfast is rather scanty if you have any appetite at all, checkout is too early at 10 am, and our US friend found... More

Originally, we booked Frederica's B&B for 3 nights. After our arrival to SJDS, we talked to Frederica for quite a while and she already warned us, that it is not going to be too quiet. We have a vacation for 3 days every 3 months, so we really want to sleep and stay in a very quiet hotel. Unfortunately, we... More

A wonderful experience to be welcomed into the home of this charming, attentive hostess. Rooms are eclectic and show the owners charismatic personality, with furnishings and souvenirs from her world travels. A/C, fan and refrigerator in the room. Lovely fresh fruit and juice breakfast, and overall very good value. This is really a home-stay, and unique. Frederica also has a... More

My wife and I spent 5 nights in this beautiful colonial home. We had a large, clean, and comfortable room with A/C and a hot shower. Breakfast consisted of fresh fruit, juice, and pastries. The property is just across the street from the beach, right in the center of town. There are numerous restaurants within a 5 minute walk of... More
