In the residential area of St Lucia the lodge is situated in a very quiet and green area. The (female) manager, the staff and the owners are extremely helpful and friendly people. They clearly know their craft. The rooms are light and spacious, beautiful in concept in a tight design. Clearly professional thinking. Everything was in the same spirit. Even...

Stunning architecture, beautiful garden and pool, excellent service, comfortable spacious rooms. A contrast to the thatch and boma type cliche. Within walking distance of the restaurants in the small town.

Beautiful modern guest house. Its architecture is delightful, bright colors all around the house, extraordinary brightness through the skylights in the rooms, priority given to the space with minimalist furniture. The spirit of this house is captivating. Breakfast was on the outside deck overlooking the fish pond and was excellent and very healthy. Olga and Hans are lovely hosts and...

When we arrived at Hornbill street, we found a...

An amazing contemporary guest house with high quality bathrooms and fittings. The breakfasts were way above anything else we experienced on our trip - a fruit cocktail to start and then beautifully prepared fresh fruit, fresh bread, cold meats and eggs cooked to your choice. A lovely place that we wanted to stay longer but they were fully booked! Book...

The peaceful location is delightful. We stayed in the top room which is very large, stylish and well-equipped. The design, furnishings and art are impressive. The garden and pool area are lovely. In the morning several mongoose played in the parkland at the edge of the garden and even ventured into the garden while we were there. Monkeys and small...

The guesthouse is located off the main road and thus very quiet and peace ful. The location is good: it takes a few minutes by car and approx. 10 - 15 minutes by foot to get to the main street of St. Lucia. At night however beware of the hippos on the streets. They are large, dark and do not...

This modern guest house is really comfortable and peaceful. The rooms are very spacious and a lot of attention has been paid to all kind of details in surprising architecture (see photo, coloured windows are amazing!) and good facilities: bath tub and separate shower, big tv set, wifi, very good beds. This makes for a luxurious stay. Breakfast is delicious!...
