We stayed in the Italian Guesthouse for four nights. It is a beautiful property that is impeccably maintained. We stayed in a private cottage with an attached kitchen. It is very cozy and has a hostel-like feel in that you can interact with the other guests easily. The staff was very helpful and the housekeeper does an excellent job at keeping the place looking good. The view of Rodney Bay is fantastic. The garden is very nice and the barbecue pit is a great bonus.
The owner was very helpful when our plans changed at the last minute, and we were able to extend our stay without any hassle.
The only drawback about this place is that it is on the top of a very large and steep hill, and the road up is quite rough. If you are going out, make sure you don't forget anything, because going back can be a daunting prospect.
I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone wanting to stay somewhere other than a resort.
