“Wonderful time with Don and Doris,highly recommended !!!”
Reviewed 19 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Don and Doris dedicated themselves to making sure we all had a great time.From the time we arrived until we were at the airport on our way home.They have a lovely location and I thoroughly enjoyed their company. I also appreciated that we were all included in their daily plans if we chose to join them.

“A wonderful cultural and adventurous experience!”
Reviewed 2 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The owners Donald and Doris went above and beyond my expectations! Their kindness and friendliness made you feel right at home in a new country. Their knowledge of the island was such an asset to us . They supplied us with a cell phone with their number in case we needed them. It was so nice to arrive and have refreshments :) ! essentials for the next few days for breakfast, eggs, bread, butter, juice, coffee, etc too, without even having to go out to the grocery store!. Its like they read my mind! I could enjoy a full breakfast on the lovely balcony, Everything you needed was there, even insect repellent! Im not one to sit on a beach all day at a resort, so this was a great adventure for me. There is so much to see and experience and Donald and Doris helped us with all that and more! There guest house was cozy, clean, and everything you needed. A great location, close to the hospital and local establishments! The St Lucian people I met were very lovely. Doris took us to the market were we got to meet the people and their culture, and throughout our trip threw the rainforest and volcanic mountain trip we took, everyone was friendly :) And on the down side , their are your poorer areas like everywhere else but the people are kind and happy ! And if you love animals your at the right Guest house! Donald and Doris have the most loveable dogs! Their hospitality was above and beyond anything I have ever experienced even at a resort! Very accommodating :) I would go back again !

“A Home Away From Home”
Reviewed 2 May 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We stayed in Tapion House for two week. Doris and Don welcomed us and made us feel at home! There was a cold drink, the fridge was filled and Doris took us to the supermarket to get any groceries we needed. They told us about local restaurants, beautiful beaches, interesting spots on the island and helped us in every way to feel at home!
You need a fitness center - Don and Doris have the answer - you have any questions - they are there.
They provided us with a local cell phone - just in case we had any questions while we were on an excursion..
We loved our wonderful apartment painted in Caribbean colors with a nice living area, TV and great internet connection, a kitchen with everything we needed, a laundry room, a bathroom with shower and two bedrooms with heavenly brand new mattresses, which were just the right thing for my back problems!!
Enjoying breakfast on the terrace overlooking the garden and a part of the beach, which is only a few minutes´walk away, was a great start into a tropical day.!
The warm Canadian hospitality of Doris and Don was absolutely outstanding - a great place to stay!
Thank you for a lovely time, Doris and Don!!!

Don and Doris were AMAZING hosts. From the moment we arrived we were treated very kindly, with every effort being made to make us comfortable. Doris picked us up and dropped us off at the airport for a very reasonable fee, and when we arrived at the home Don greeted us with complimentary mixed drinks, which made for a nice treat after a long plane ride.

They provided us with all sorts of information about the island and what we could do while we were there. They provided a number for a caterer who could cater us some local fare, and a number for a maid if we wanted our suite cleaned during our stay. They were very easily accessible if we had any questions or concerns about anything, and checked in periodically to make sure everything was going smoothly. The suite we stayed in was cozy, with one of the rooms getting direct sunlight throughout the day - I really loved waking up to the sunrise. There was a full kitchen, full bathroom, and a lovely dining/living area which was great for relaxing and watching Netflix in the evening after our daytime adventures.

The house itself is located in a quiet, upper-middle class neighbourhood, with the Tapion Hospital just a short 5 minute walk away. There is space at the hospital (as well as on the side of the road) to park a car if you get a rental, or a bus stop there as well if you take public transit. It is a 20-25 minute walk from the house to La Toc beach, a 20-25 minute walk into Castries, or a 5 minute drive to both. The house is very close to the highway as well, which makes driving to other parts of the island easy. There is also a little beach behind the house which is great for having a picnic by the sea, with a little hidden trail up a hill which we ventured onto to reach an amazingly picturesque hidden spot, with stone steps to reach the rocks below with a full view of Castries on one side and the Caribbean Sea on the other.

The complimentary groceries was a great bonus (100 XCE goes a very long way). We were able to relax and eat breakfast before going out for the day and cook food in the evening at our own leisure. All the basic amenities that you would expect were provided; extra bedsheets, towels, full sets of cutlery and pots and pans, even mosquito repellent and after-bite spray were there if we needed it. They even provided extras day by day - umbrellas, grocery bags, a small lunch bag to take to the beach, and snorkelling equipment (they were kind enough to teach us how to snorkel at the beach one day and we had a blast!).

There is a great lunch spot on the way to town, where we had a fantastic curry beef and saltfish. Don and Doris told us about that spot as well as many other places. They were full of information, telling us where the best place to get roti was, or how much a taxi to Gros Islet should cost, what bar had a 2-for-1 deal on beer, the location of a small fish market where we could buy a variety of fish from the locals, I could go on and on. They also took us to the rum factory, drove us to the Friday street party in Gros Islet, and literally did everything possible that they could for us that was within their power and time.

Absolutely no complaints whatsoever. They are lovely hosts who really took care of us while we were there. We felt absolutely safe at all times of day or night, even as two female first-time travellers in their mid-20's. We had a fantastic time! Would not hesitate to stay here again, and would recommend Tapion House to any family, friends, or strangers who ask.
