“A Most Enjoyable Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2012

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.

Habitat Terrace is the most lovely place to you, who want's to have some peace and quite place to stay. Rooms are nicely decorated and clean, and the size of the hotel is perfect, you can really feel that it's like home. It was also nice to get some daily excersice to walk down to Rodney Bay, or getting the ride from Cheryl when feeling lazy. Especially when I travelled alone, I felt like a family member during my stay. Missing you guys.

This charming hotel is a 10 min walk form Rodnay Bay, enough to be in a quite environnement, with birds and a small swimming pool, under the sun or under the shadow of an elgant tree in the garden. You can stay in the room or appartment with Wifi for work at day time, or you can enjoy shopping in the close neighborough of Rodnay Bay, very confortable location also for nice restaurants and upscale hotels beaches at sea level .
Last but not least, the managent is always helpful, or does its best to help the guests, an address to remember when you want to enjoy a real St Lucian atmosphere at a bargain price for a 5star location !

The hotel is a great place for locals as well when looking for a little down time. When staying at habitat terrace you feel at home and welcomed. My husband and I enjoyed every minute of it. I planned a special night and Habitat Terrace was very accommodating and basically played along with my plan and helped make the night very special, romantic and memorable. Thanks! Can't wait to be back!!

The best place to stay if you're looking for a quiet, clean bedroom or even full appartment close to Rodnay Bay, but uphill in quiet area
The experience was great, we've been there twice last August and hopefully many happy returns

Everything was as described on the website. The owner was very helpful before in terms of making arrangements. Only thing is you definitely need to have a vehicle to be able to move around as the hotel is away from the main tourist hub, Rodney Bay, up some hills. Only about 10 mins away but it would be a very arduous walk.
Check in and check out times were flexible though we paid extra to check out later than 11 a.m. / 12 noon.
One set back - no free internet acccess at least it was not easily noticeable and we didn't bother to ask.
All in all I would say you get what you pay for. The hotel is clean and comfortable with no frills really.
