Mine was a flying visit, late arrival and early departure, having said that I received a warm welcome from the owners who really made me feel at home. Would definitely say there again, highly recommended.

The owners of the guesthouse were so friendly and helpful. The breakfast was amazing. The room was big and the beds were perfect. The guesthouse and especially the owners made us wish that we stayed longer.

Nice place to stay, very nice and helpful kitchen and garden staff. Our room was spacious and comfortable, although it was a bit noisy because the room of other guest was directly next to ours. We used the braai facilities and the staff came out to help us. They also washed the cars in the morning.

On the contrary to the comments I read earlier, my room was spacious with a lounge and big bathroom. The bed was comfortable and there was an electric insect repellant provided in the room.

Wonderful place. Beautiful green garden, full of monkeys and a nice pool. We had our private terrace and entrance. Rooms were comfortable. Staff and breakfast was excellent. Would have loved to staff longer. This place is a piece of heaven! St Lucia is a nice town aswell

The rooms are nice, the bathroom rather small, - the atmosphere is pleasant and the owners (and manager Marti) are extremely helpful and... More

We spent one night in St Lucia and fully enjoyed this guesthouse. Perfect location just off the (short) Main Street. Enjoyed a huge and lovely breakfast after a fantastic sleep. I stayed in the small room with the adjoining door. Thankfully my neighbors were quiet and I slept like a log (after reading other reviews I gather it can be... More
