We were returning guests to Serene and again enjoyed our 3 night stay. The rooms are large and modern. Our room had direct access to the garden and pool area. The garden ends in a park area where during the day and night animals can be spotted, incl monkeys. Hippos wander the streets around the house at night. Many things...

We really enjoyed our stay ar Serene-Estate. Our room was a great size and everything was where it should be and, very comfortable. The property is situated within easy walking distance of the small town. My only disappointment was that I did not meet a hippo in the street. Other guests did! Our boat trip was organised for us and...

We stayed at Serene Estate for 3 nights in Feb 2016. The house is an outstanding example of really comfortable modern architecture. The rooms are large and comfortable mainly on the ground floor opening onto to small private garden areas and then the swimming pool. Animals (inc hippos) wander right up to the electric garden fence. Helpful and proud owners...

Serene Estate is indeed... Serene. A beautiful building with stunning, comfortable, large and beautifully furnished rooms. But the real star of the show is the wonderful garden - complete with bushbuck, duiker, hippo and a variety of birds, all best viewed from the infinity pool. Fantastic breakfast too, and all told, a really lovely stay. Thanks so much!

Spent two nights here while we explored St Lucia. Thoroughly enjoyable trip. Luxurious and spacious rooms. High organised manageress who made everything so easy. She booked all our excursions for us and provided lots of information. Very helpful. Breakfast was great with healthy fruit options. Will definitely be returning in the future.

We liked the quiet atmosphere, abundant breakfast and a personal care of owners and managers to their clients. We liked the pool and the possibility to see hipo at the beautifully illuminated night garden.

With no doubt this is the best B&B in St. lucia. Outstanding design, extremely clean, tidy and well looked after, this is a pearl. But the best is the healthy breakfast with which you start the day like "King & Queen" . The cappuccino definitively is a must have - not easy to beat in professional coffee shops. Olga, Hans...
