Thank you for your constructive feedback. It is feedback like yours that keep us striving to improve. Some of our English breakfast items are prepared just prior to your selected dining time to avoid any delays in service. In addition, we now offer a cheese platter as standard menu, rather than on request. More

The service was excellent, our room was so spacious and welcoming. The location my word was so heavenly we felt right at home and mire. What we liked mostly everything that we need is just around the corner and the least will be our trip was too short.lol

Well maintained property in a quiet part of town. We had two rooms. Bedrooms and bathrooms are good size and well fitted out. Pleasant outside seating areas. Toni is most welcoming and attentive to the guests' needs, providing support, information on things to do and see in the area.

Nice guesthouse with excellent hostess Tony, who talked us through the highlights of St Lucia and was always there to answer questions and assist with the rooms. We were very happy with the heater function of the airco, as it can get gold in the evening in African winters.
