We were here for 6 nights in a garden room. It was a very large, with very interesting, modern architecture. We didn't see a hippo in the garden, but saw several birds, monkeys (love the catapult to get rid of them at eating times!) and duikers. Olga and Hans have made this into a wonderfully relaxing place to stay. We... More

We loved the architecture of this guesthouse. It was very spacious: our room as well as the common area. The owners, Hans and Olga as well as their friendly staff were very present and helpful. We can recommend the Hippo and Croc tour. St Lucia is a nice little town.

Lovely location and facilities. Great welcome and trips organized immediately. Understand water shortage but wish we had been told that bath plugs removed as freezing after night drive, and bath was not available, then lights in room blew and no staff in site at night

Fantastic location in the heart of St. Lucia. Very modern design alternative to the traditional lodges with an excellent breakfast. Apparently the hippo's come right up the lawn in the evening although i did not get to see them on my visit.

Cons: outside steps weren't lit at night. Lack of choice in cooked breakfast- my sister doesn't like eggs, no alternative offered. That's all! Pros: Lovely interesting building design. Fabulous service! Beautiful room overlooking garden. Plentiful interesting breakfast. Tours organised for us! Will definitely return!
