Really loved our two nights here. We had a room for my wife and son in the main house. Huge bathroom. Short walk to the Main Street with restaurants and shops, which was nice for dinner. Good breakfast. Very friendly and helpful people. Made perfect arrangements for tours and gave good advice on where to go etc. Definetly recommended.

Craig was great. His accommodation was perfect for us. He was friendly and accommodated our requests for packed breakfasts and organised tours when needed. We could come and go as we pleased. Room was great with large bathroom. Would definitely recommend.

Quiet and comfortable place. Tasteful breakfast. A late arrival, a late or early breakfast, a big pile of laundry, a broken key: Craig and his team deal with it with hospitality and flexibility. Thanks!

I could easily have stayed at Craig's place for much longer. It is a hands-on personal touch that made me feel like being at my best accommodation...

Loved Craig's cottages. He is a super host and was very accommodating to our large party of 11. All cottages very different and very special. The bed we had in fishermans was beautiful.

This was my second visit to Parker's Cottages and not my last, I hope. Craig is very relaxed and accommodating, and even helped out organising one of our excursions - no mean task when there's 11 of us! We had a great time in St Lucia. What a magical place!
