“Medical Elective”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

Loved our stay with Dare and his family. Would highly recommend staying here on your medical elective. Amazing for price, 3 of us stayed in flat 3 which had a double bed and a single with a decent show and washing machine. Living area had all the stuff needed to make our meals for the time we were out there in the comfort of sportmax on the telly which showed every live football match! In the evenings the balcony has a gorgeous view perfect to sit and have a couple of chairmans and pitons.
Go stay with Dare.

I stayed here during my medical elective in St. Lucia. The apartments were wonderful and had everything you needed, as well as a great view! Dr Ogunlusi and his wife were so hospitable and took such good care of us. The apartment is in a safe area and is well connected by bus to the city. When we visited St Lucia there were lots of other students staying here too, so was a really great way to meet people! I would 100% recommend to stay with the Ogunlusi's!

4 of us stayed here while doing our medical elective at Victoria hospital. It was perfect for what we needed - beautiful location, wonderful hosts and easy access to the local town, hospital and beaches. The apartments themselves were great, they were spacious, clean and had good cooking facilities. Definitely recommend staying here!

I absolutely loved my stay at Hillcrest. The rooms were clean and spacious , and there was everyone youneeded in the apartment. The Ogunlusi's are the loveliest family and take such good care of any one who stays with them. The location is fantastic, with buses running very frequently to Castries , and takes about 5 minutes. The trip to Rodney Bay is about 30 minutes. It was a wonderful stay, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone on their medical elective / looking for a place to stay in St Lucia.

The apartment were clean and spacious. It's an excellent place to stay with great facilities in a quite residential area. It was also a 5 - 10 minutes local bus journey to the town centre. I would highly recommend this place for anyone visting St Lucia. Top stars!

I spent 2 weeks with my family in one of these nicely run short-stay apartments. I couldn't have asked for anything better. The owners were extremely helpful. They picked us from the airport and gave us plenty of information, assistance and advice which really helped us to enjoy our stay in St. Lucia. The apartment was spacious, airy and always maintained clean. It had all we needed. The sea view from our apartment was amazing. It is close to many of the beaches in Castries. I will definitely go back to this facility in the future if I visit Castries again.

Room Tip: Nice sea view from all the apartments. Owner can pick you from airport and give you all the advice...

Myself and some other friends have just spent five weeks here whilst on our medical school elective placement at Victoria Hospital and we couldn't have asked for better accommodation. Our apartment was very spacious, and in excellent condition. The hosts were waiting to welcome us on arrival, and have been so good to us throughout our time here, always keen to do as much as they could for us, even down to booking taxis for us to get down into town.

The apartment is in a lovely quiet location, away from the hustle and bustle of Castries. Getting into the main part of the city is very easy and cheap via the local buses which run very regularly and take you into the centre. Travel time into Castries varies, but is usually only around ten minutes. Taxis are also very reasonable to travel from the apartment either into Castries, or further afield.

The apartment was a great base to explore St Lucia. Bus routes run from Castries to reach all other main towns on the island. Rodney Bay and Gros Islet are a short bus ride away with lots of restaurants, bars and shops as well as one of the biggest beaches in the area.

Overall, the apartment has been a brilliant place to stay during our elective. The owners are extremely warm and friendly, and the area feels safe, as well as being an accessible location. I would definitely recommend this accommodation!
