We stayed for 4 nights. The room was not big but clean, with private bathroom and mosquito net over the beds. The owners were very friendly and helpful, providing lots of useful information. There is a nice garden near the sea. The area around the guesthouse is very authentic, with nice local restaurants. We really enjoyed our stay here and... More

Charming orange building with a wonderful back porch. Our room was nothing fancy but it was clean. It contained a full fridge, stove (no oven), kitchen sink. Bathroom with shower. Mosquito netting over the bed. Located right next to the ocean with lovely views. Hosts provide lots of information and are very nice as is the staff. They have two... More

Upon arriving at the airport, Poly, the driver arranged by the owners, picked me up for the one and a half hour drive to the guest house ($70 USD + tip). Arriving at the gate, Poly sounded his unique horn, alerting Will, one of the owners (The other being his wife Stephanie), of my arrival. Will. ushered me in, carried... More

We really loved this place. We stayed in one of the standard rooms and while it wasn't huge, everything about it was what you would hope for. It was cleaned every day to a high standard, the bed was comfortable, the shower was great and the air conditioning worked well. Will and Stephanie were very nice and welcoming and were... More

If you really want to feel the spirit of the local life this is the best place. In BG we met awesome people. We have spent the Independence Day Fiesta on the street with local music and food. Couldn't be better. The room is very tidy and quiet. Be prepared that it is a tropical island so use the air... More

Stephanie and Will are very accommodating hosts, flexible and very helpful. Dyson, the night host, is a lovely young man and we thank him for all his help. We used our kitchenette for breakfast almost daily, went around the corner for fresh-baked rolls. Several good restaurants are within walking distance, and of course the world-famous Gros Islet street party on... More

Great place to stay and to experience the real Caribbean. At first, Gros Islet was a bit overwhelming but the culture shock soon wore off. All of the St Lucians we met were friendly and welcoming. We booked one of the ground floor rooms overlooking the ocean. The room is basic but that's why it is so affordable and good... More
