Super welcoming hosts! The communication was timely and clear and I was very pleased with the detailed instructions on how to get to the rental and I received a great welcome. The house is actually much nicer than many hotels I have stayed in, for a fraction of the price. It is extremely clean, stylish and situated in a quiet neighbourhood, which was good for my relaxation after touring the island and enjoying active days out. I would highly recommend this guest house to other travellers - it is really excellent value for money.
This was our first time in St. Lucia and first time in a BNB experience (unique). We stayed here: 2/4 - 2/13. Margaret and Stephen were exceptionally wonderful hosts, we could not ask for anything more. They are TRULY committed in providing excellent customer service. We felt welcomed and comfortable in their beautiful and immaculately clean home with large balconies and lush exotic/tropical landscaping. The bed was very comfortable. Breakfast each morning was tasty, creative and well planned by Margaret which included fruits and juices we had never seen or heard of (from their yard). We also got to enjoy her delicious guava jam, pumpkin soup, chicken roti and turkey burgers - all to die for. There is nothing Margaret or Stephen won't do to enhance your visit in their home.
By car, the home is approximately 15 - 20 minutes from UVF airport and the beautiful Sandy beach which also has restaurants and bars (The Reef / Island Breeze) and they are reasonably priced. The home is approximately 5 minutes from The LaTille Falls (a must) or a gas station; the Riverbank bar with fun karaoke, a cool environment to chill with the locals.
A vehicle is a must to enjoy this beautiful island filled with very stunning scenic views from its winding steep highways. Getting around 'may be' just a little challenging as many beaches, sites and resorts with beach chair amenities are about a mile or more off the main highways with little signage or clear direction from posted signs. Do not be deterred (in Stephen's voice) as you will not be disappointed with the results. Stephen gave us a tour of his home village (Micoud) with tons of history about the village and the island of St. Lucia. Priceless.
The conversion rate to the USD is between ($2.50 - $2.70) depending on where you go/shop.
Margaret and Stephen, thank you both so very much for a memorable birthday vacation. We wish you both the very best.
What a wonderful vacation place! The accommodations are very spacious and extremely well maintained with beautiful balconies both front and back. This property is out of the crowds and hustle of the cruise ships and resorts. Would you like a true vacation, free to make your own time schedule and not be rushed around by tour guides? How about experiencing the island culture that most visitors miss due to the rush? This is the perfect place for the true adventurous vacationer and, remember, nothing on the island is more than a one-hour drive. Our experience here was like visiting a tropical island and bringing our home with us, and, the owner was extremely helpful and eager to make our experience full of the island culture. Even the neighbors were great! Shop, eat, dive, visit the beach or walk through the rain forest then return for a well-deserved rest at the end of the day, or just relax on the balcony for some reading or writing in the peace and quiet of the neighborhood. Although we have traveled the world, this was truly one of our best vacation experiences and we will continue to recommend this experience and Tranquility to everyone.
Thanks again Stephen! M&M
