This is our 3rd visit and we are always impressed with the views, the rooms, the breakfasts, the attention to detail ,as well as the warm and helpful hosts. You can walk out of the Lodge straight on to the beach. We will be back!

Their recommendations for where to eat worked out great! The rooms are lovely - light, spacious, well equipped and with a great sized fridge/freezer. Good... More

The lodge is set on the point and has amazing views over the sea, and there is a lovely pool area which is sheltered from the wind. The rooms are very comfortable and we had sea views. The breakfasts are also very good, especially the omelettes and scrambled eggs with bacon and feta. The honesty bar is also very handy... More

This was our third visit to this amazing Lodge. We stayed in the St Martin apartment. The views are breath taking. We would highly recommend visiting this lodge. You can realy just relax. There is also a lot of restaurants close by. The beach is spectacular. Lots of places to go for a jog or to walk around.

This peaceful retreat away from the hustle and bustle is not just postcard-perfect; it has something that touches the soul. The guesthouse offers panoramic... More

Amazing spot with phenomenal views and the ocean is at your doorstep. Service is five star. Beautiful white linen on a very comfortable bed. Private, peaceful atmosphere with all one needs for a week end away! Will definitely be back. So happy this was our choice for our first stay in Shelley Point.
