The guesthouse is built in wood and volcanic stone, structured as a typical colonial house with a beautiful view on Rodney Bay. In the tropical garden you find mango, banana, papaya, cherries trees and a well organized barbeque area. There is also a cottage which hosts, besides the laundry where you can give your clothes to the housekeeper, a relaxing area with double Jacuzzi and an outdoor shower dip in the nature. The property has five separate apartments with their private kitchen and veranda. The property is located into Rodney Bay Marina area, in the north of Saint Lucia island, on the top of a sweet hill which overhangs world famous IGY Marina and Gros Islet village.

Nice quiet and safe place to stay with cool breeze coming of the Atlantic with the bonus of views across Rodney Bay. Terrific owner if lucky enough to meet him as he is usually at sea chartering, staff are very friendly. The y have a car for rent which is way cheaper than the national rentals.

We were going to stay here for 6 days but one night was more then enough. The first challenge was to get to the guesthouse, the hill you have to climb has terrible roads and when we came there our booking was changed and the staff was not helpful at all. When we tried to call the owners to sort the booking out they hung up the phone on us. Do not stay here I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.

dear guest, hello. i am really sorry because you was not satisfied of your stay in our guesthouse. as you note, we have many guests who loves and appreciate our guesthouse and our organization. you can read many reviews on the main hotel specialized web, for example booking.com, airbnb, Expedia, etc . concerning the road, there is only a little piece of 200 yards that was damaged from the hurricane's rain of September 2018. sorry again for the discomfort caused from the bad road. the road will be completely paved from the month of April 2019.

Don’t stay here! They take your money and don’t give you what you ask for and don’t answer the phone when you need to complain. The owner hung up the phone on me and said he’s on a boat and cannot here me, and he didn’t take my Money talk to someone else

We recently booked a 5 day stay here. The guesthouse is removed from the main areas and up a considerable hill. The rooms are also “budget friendly”,even more so in person. However, for us, the real issues are as follows. We arrived by taxi, unable to locate the guesthouse manager. Our taxi driver attempted to track her down, finding her number and calling her several times, with no luck. Finally, we manage to locate her, find her having some quality time with her boyfriend, cell phone in a separate building. Next, she has no idea we were booked, not believing our printed confirmation. This is pivotal as this where things really go off the rails. Seems she is living in our booked room. Personal effects scattered everywhere in our booked room. She eventually works out the booking details and agrees to prep our room but is now completely hostile. She clears her stuff out of the room and cleans it up but doesn’t bother to change the sheets even though it is evident this is where she has been staying. We get in the room, find an alternative place to stay, call a cab and hit the road. We contact management seeking even a partial refund but they were completely un caring. We have travelled extensively, everything from very basic to 5 star luxury and this is the first time we have had to walk away from a place due to staff and lack of managerial oversight. Your travel time and dollars are valuable. Don’t risk your St Lucia experience with this establishment.

We arrived an hour after booking, because an Airbnb reservation fell through. The drive up the steep hill was worth the view, with the lovely Alessandro and Delia, sunset, and cold beers, waiting to greet us. We felt warmly welcomed and as if we were at home. The charming guesthouse garden led us up to our apartment with a kitchen outside, and a double and single bed inside. We went out in the evening with Alessandro, Bryan (another staff member), and a friend. Despite our sore heads the next day, we rented the guesthouse's 4x4 and made it to the beach. Delia was very helpful and did our laundry before hanging it up. We extended our stay and the car rental because we loved the guesthouse so much, and after 3 days we moved to the apartment with the large balcony and stunning view of the Bay. Thank you Italian Guesthouse, we will be back one day!
