The island of St. Lucia is a place of great natural beauty and The Inn On The Bay is the perfect location for enjoying the scenic views in virtually every direction, perched high above Marigot Bay on it's southern peninsula. The bay's beauty was matched by the comfort of our room and the personal service we received from inn keepers...

I travelled by myself to St Lucia. Got a bit tired of every day life and needed a quiet getaway. I chose to stay at the Inn On The Bay after reading all of the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. Even after reading the reviews, I was still a little sceptical but having experienced the Inn for myself...I can tell...

Thank you so much for all your latest nice and kind comments... and don't worry: so far, no retirement in sight for Louise and Normand! We really have too much fun doing what we do!!! So, we're now heading for The Inn's 20th anniversary... on November 4, 2015! Hope to see you all soon in St. Lucia! Sunny regards, Normand...

What a great place! The view, the rooms, but especially the hospitality. Normand and Louise are absolutely fantastic! They make you feel completely at home, actually, better than home. Normand is hilarious! He was very helpful with recommendations, planning and even an extra beach towel. Everyone in the bay area knows him and going anywhere was just so easy. Definitely...

Inn on the Bay is run by a fabulous Canadian couple – Normand and Louise. Normand acts as the tour guide / chauffer into town while Louise bakes up delicious breads for breakfast. Both are eager to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Need to know the price / time of scuba – Normand will arrange it!...

We only had one night in Marigot bay after a week long sailing trip and decided to spend it with Normand and Louise at the Inn on the Bay. The location was phenomenal with amazing views of the bay. We had breakfast on the secluded patio overlooking the caribbean sea which was beautiful and relaxing. Normand was incredibly accommodating, helping...

This is a special place where the hosts put the guests at great ease. As a result, it is easy and fun to meet the other guests. We enjoyed swimming in the beautiful pool, going into the town, eating at the very good restaurants in town, and just taking it easy.

To Normand and Louise, and to all the prospective vacationers to St Lucia, Linda and I would like to say that this was one of the best vacations that we have ever been on.

After traveling around the entire island, I believe that the view from the Inn On the Bay is the most beautiful, on a truly awesome island. Normand and Louise are wonderful and gracious hosts. They are available 24/7 to help plan activities (scuba, sailing, dinners, etc.). They take a personal interest to make sure their guests have a wonderful time...

Having just returned from St Lucia in the last few days and still on a high from having had such a wonderful time, we feel it is only right to share our experiences with fellow travellers.

A weeks stay with Normand and Louise is a great experience. All the other reviewers have said it all very well and I agree with all the comments, especially about Normand's taxi service. We were a little reticent about asking him to run us up and down the hill at first until we realised it was expected, and you wouldn't...
