Relax to arrive here, with a welcomedrink and a nice talk with the owner about the town and what to do. They have a beautiful garden and swimmingpool. We were on our honeymoon and the decorated the room and we got a bottle of liceur as a present! So enjoyed our stay very much!

Cisca went out of her way to ensure we arrived safely and came to welcome us warmly (even though we were late arriving due to hold ups on the way). Our 4 day stay was very relaxing, the family suite rooms were spacious and furnished very nicely, the children enjoyed the pool and the breakfasts were delicious. There are plenty...

The location was quite and save. Nice B&B. Friendly host. Helped us to organize nice trips, thank you. Breakfast was nice too, but breakfasttime only from 7.45 till 8:45, which feels a bit restrictive.

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.
