Beautiful guest house, in a great location. The guest house is only a 10 minuet walk to St Lucia main street. The rooms are all beautifully appointed, (there was 6 of us in 3 rooms) and the hosts could not do enough for us. Breakfast was served on an open veranda served by staff who want to be there. All...

Excellent stay in St. Lucia. Nice town, good parks and trips, very nice guest house. We stayed 3 days, they arranged the tours. Breakfast was well done. Restaurant selection in town was good. Beach and surf were fun.

Very nice B & B. We stayed four nights. The host/owners are very nice and helpful and realy make everything to make you feel at home. They give advice for trips and restaurants. St Lucia is small, the beach enormous and you will not get dissapointed since the hippos is at your doorstep for real. Just be aware at night.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights in August. St Lucia is pleasant little town with a safe feel to it, as long as you avoid the hippo hot spots at night :-) (they say)...

We enjoyed our stay at Elephant Coast Guesthouse very much! The (very friendly!) owners introduced us to St Lucia and all the things to do when we arrived. This was very good because it made it a lot easier to decide on what to do and they also reserved the chosen activites for us which saved us a couple of...
