About
The historic Balenbouche Estate is one of St. Lucia's most authentic and beautiful landmarks and heritage sites. The 60 acre former sugar plantation, nature park and retreat center includes the 180 year old plantation house lived in by the owners, who have cared for the property for over 35 years. Visit the antique furnished family home and museum, discover the impressive remains of the 18th century sugar mill, and explore our walking trails and secluded beaches. View our collection of Amerindian, African and colonial artifacts. Relax and celebrate under ancient trees and among tropical flora and fauna. We are open 7 days a week from 8 am - 6 pm. You can drop by any time for a self-guided tour (US$ 5). For guided tours, meals, or to book the grounds for an event, please call ahead. We look forward to welcoming you and sharing this special place with you!

Wish we had stayed here longer... such a gorgeous estate with birdlife aplenty. Quiet and serene. Accommodation very simple but lovely. Local food was delicious. Perfect as a retreat, for artists or birdwatching.

Authentic, relaxed B&B to stay for the week
Jan. 2018 • Solo
Beautiful B&B heritage property with walk-about grounds (open to the public) and a wonderful family. Well known place to stay on the island. If you're looking for a five-star resort, this may not be your cup of tea (the cottages have no AC). But if you're looking for authenticity and heritage in a local setting, this is great accomodation and they serve lunch and dinner (book ahead as they get busy). It's magical to stay here.

Wonderful estate. Wonderful Family
Nov. 2017 • Family
My husband and I got married at Balenbouche in May of 2012. We rented all the cottages to host our family and friends. The accommodations were awesome. Every day we would get up and have french pressed coffee on the veranda of the plantation house, along with homemade banana jam on toast. The rum punch in the afternoons was awesome. Our wedding meal was amazing. Everything was so fresh, and the chocolate wedding cake was killer. I cant recommend Balenbouche enough. All of our guests said it was the best wedding they had ever attended.

One of the most magical places I've ever visited, and hosted by the nicest people. The highlight of our stay on the island, hands down!
