We have just returned from a two week stay at the Cottage at the Boiled Frog Guesthouse. It was our first trip to non US or Canadian destinations and Danielle and Steve were the perfect hosts. Besides the amazing setting,accessibility to our own swim beach and all St. Lucia has to offer, the hosts made us comfortable and then....encouraged us to go explore! It was the perfect way for us to have the experience. The cottage is a perfect place for the longer stay- breakfast foods provided in the fridge, cooking facilities available, two comfy couches, king size bed, air conditioning and large bathroom. There is a beautiful back deck, fully sheltered veranda, hammocks and the gazebo. Lovely reclining chairs were our favourite to watch the beautiful sunset every night, of course with a Piton beer! Danielle also gives the option of dining with them 5 nights a week posting the menu days ahead. The meals were fabulous and the company great- thoroughly enjoyed the other guests, Steve, Danielle, Alex, Sasha, Danielle's parents and of course Pod! The conversation was always lively and varied- we learned a lot about other islands, St. Lucia culture and many other things!!! We both found the Lucian people amazing- polite, interesting and very welcoming! Danielle suggested multiple activities and lists of dos and don'ts-again great for us travelling newbies.The location of the guest house is great- bus stop virtually at the door, easy walking distance in to Castries, grocery store 2 blocks away. We will be back!
