“Little piece of Paradise!”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

We, Alexandre and Stephanie, visited the Bay Guesthouse mid December.
Our pleasant stay started over the e-mail: with very quick and always cheerful responses we were really looking forward to our stay. The first night we could not believe our eyes, when we found the guesthouse even more beautiful located than expected en fell asleep to the sound of the ocean.
Will and Stephanie are great owners. They really treated us like friends and were always ready to help and give advice. They were very warm and welcoming and they made our stay very pleasant. We highly recommend this clean, warm and beautiful place.

Hopefully see you two again!!

Room Tip: We had the room upstairs, which was big and had a beautiful view.

A colleague and I recently attended a conference in St Lucia. We were fortunate to find the excellent reviews of Bay Guesthouse, Gros Islet, on Tripadvisor, and couldn't have been happier during the 10 days we spent there. Other conference delegates staying at Bay Guesthouse at the same time were equally happy. The guesthouse was near the conference venue, and far more appealing to us than the pricey, impersonal resorts nearby. The accommodation is spacious, scrupulously clean and provides a mesmerising view of the sea, framed by palm trees. The proprietor, Will, is a fount of local knowledge, and went out of his way to see to our comfort. He arranged a minibus from the airport and a tour of the island. Swimming on the nearby beach was a tonic, and the food at the restaurants Will recommended was good. This is the place for budget travellers who value a more authentic experience than that provided by hotel chains. It was a wrench to go home.

My husband and I visited St Lucia for a holiday and spent seven days at the Bay Guest house after searching for a reasonable place that is easily accessible to the activities.This guest house fitted nicely it's simple, clean, affordable, great sea view, comfortable and last but not least the owner certainly made you feel "very important".Will (the owner) gave us tips on places to visit, eat out or to enjoy ourselves. We enjoyed the serene beach adjacent to the guest house and the sun set was awesome.
Bay Guesthouse, Mr. Poly (taxi driver) and St. Lucia will definitely see me again.

We visited for 2 nights in May and stayed in the 1 bedroom apartment. Will and Steph (the owners) we brilliant hosts and full of knowledge of the surroundings. They recommended local bars, attractions, supermarkets and were full of advice. The 2 dogs were super friendly and a fun addition when we were lying outside reading. The room was comfortable with 2 standing fans, very clean and just what we needed considering we weren't inside much, as the view outside is so captivating. You couldn't find a better view or anywhere closer to the perfectly calm Caribbean Sea. We were able to find local BBQ grills with a minute of leaving the apartment too and you are right beside Pigeon Island which isn't to be missed! Over all a beautiful location, close to amenities and a great couple of hosts who with help you in every way. Sorry we didn't sign the guestbook!

We stayed in the guesthouse for a coup,e of days. To be honest when we first saw the dogs, we were a bit scared especially since we don't have any but a second later we felt very comfortable. They are lovely dogs and we liked them a lot. They are absolutely friendly - we miss them though!
The entire area is kept clean and we felt very comfortable. The rooms are all clean, well mantained and made to enjoy your holidays.
The owners were absolutely lovely, caretaking and welcoming. We would come again and recommend it to everybody.
The location is perfect as well: good conrction, not touristically spoiled but still enough restaurants to have lunch and dinner. It is not so touristically spoiled like other areas on the island.
We had a couple of great days there. We like then place a lot and are still missing the dogs paika and pepsi.

My friend and I stayed here for a month as we were medical students on our elective in St Lucia. We stayed at the Bay Guesthouse because of a recommendation from a friend. We had a fantastic time - Will and Steph (the owners) helped out in any way that they possibly could. They would book trips for us, give us advice on a daily basis, find out the cheapest ways for us to do things. We mentioned that we wanted to cook some fish on the fire pit so Will got us some coal and bought us some tuna steaks very cheaply. For the money you couldn't ask for any more - we had an ensuite room for two that was cleaned daily, and were given linen, towels and beach towels. The value for money here is incredible. It's an amazing location as well, situated in a real Caribbean village, with amazing local restaurants and the weekly street party that is famous throughout the island. The overnight security guard and guard dogs meant that we always felt safe. Wouldn't stay anywhere else if I visit again. Our only complaint would be that the rooms are pretty warm but the guesthouse is currently closed as they are putting in air conditioning units!
