Very modern build with contemporary minimalist fittings which some will love and some will not. The location is great, just a 5 minute walk into the small town of St Lucia but more importantly the gardens overlook a nature reserve so you are in the swimming pool with various wild, non predatory, animals a few yards away. The building is...

Beautiful rooms overlooking the pool and game reserve. At night the Hippos can be seen grazing the grass out side the garden! There is plenty to do in St Lucia and we were sorry that we could only stay one night. Fabulous accommodation and breakfast.

This is an outstanding residence, set in wonderful gardens less than 5 mins walk from the hub of the village. The rooms are stunning with either views over the pool area or from the upper floor views of the garden. Breakfast is served outside on the patio area and was well presented with a wide selection available.
