“Great place -- highly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

We looked at numerous places to stay in St. Lucia before deciding on Habitat Terrace. It was everything we had hoped for. Set in a quiet location in the hills above Rodney Bay, we had a great view of Pigeon Island and the Marina. It was quiet at night, but the Village and the Marina were just five minutes by car. One of our most enjoyable experiences was having breakfast each morning in the dining area and talking with the owner, Cheryl. She is very nice and made sure our stay there was enjoyable. Our room was very nice, with a comfortable bed and a balcony where we could sit outside and look down to the water. And the price was more than reasonable. A luxury resort it is not, but if you are looking for a clean, comfortable, quiet place to stay that is not too far from the tourist areas, I would highly recommend Habitat Terrace. I know that's where we will be staying when we go back to St. Lucia. One tip: Be sure to ask Cheryl for her friend's coconut bread. It's the best!

Habitat Terrace is the homey experience for the traveler who wants to feel a warm and human touch. Bright and tropical colours greet you from the garden to your room. The owner and staff are genuinely warm and whatever you need to make things as comfortable as you would like is never too much. Well worth the cost which is reasonable!

Room Tip: The rooms by the pool are obviously a plus.

We searched for a while to find a great spot in St Lucia for my mom's birthday celebration and finally chose Habitat Terrace because of the images, choice of room types and good reviews. We were not disappointed. The owner Cheryl helped us organize a fantastic birthday surprise weeks before the trip. She ensured their stay was comfortable and memorable, organizing transport, a boat ride, sea baths, tours around Gros Islet, and even a special birthday cake! We could not have asked for a warmer welcome and a better week.
i would absolutely recommend this location for relaxation, beauty of the surrounding area, service and warmth.

Room Tip: Ask about the boat tour to Soufriere Pitons. The junior suite opens right out onto the pool and incl...

If you have a large family or group going to St. Lucia, this is the place to stay. From the owner (Cheryl) to the entire staff met and exceeded our group's expectation. The rooms were clean and Shirley did an excellent job daily in making sure that we had fresh linen and towels. Cheryl was a fabulous host and made sure our stay was enjoyable. It's a little off the beaten path but truly worth the price and quality of service.

Will definitely stay there again when I return to the island.

When we arrived at Habitat Terrace it was after 10pm and we were welcomed by Shanna and the night watchman, they were both very friendly and right away I felt at home.
The room was just the right size for the two of us, well decorated, very cIean with all the usual basic amenities including WiFi. In the morning we decided to have breakfast in the hotel which we enjoyed.The gardens were beautiful which just added to the beautiful ambiance of Habitat Terrace.
Close proximity to Rodney Bay was a gem and it was about 20mins drive to Castries.
I enjoyed my stay in St. Lucia and it just felt wonderful to come home at the end of each day to Habitat Terrace.

I stayed here between sailing trips in St Vincent and the BVI's. The house and gardens are beautiful and Cheryl was very welcoming,friendly and helpful. My stay here was a wonderful contrast to my two sailing trips and I enjoyed the peace and tranquility of the house and gardens. I walked down to Rodney Bay- spectacular views across the bay to Pigeon Island. If I ever came back to St Lucia, I would like to stay again.
