I decided to return to Guadeloupe and stay at Au Jardin Des Colibris again. The staff is friendly and helpful and the creole cottage that I selected was just lovely. The cottage is neatly tucked away in the greenery of Guadeloupe and the garden is full of hummingbirds and other wildlife. I just lived it. Thank you ladies again for...

The rooms are very beautiful, one could even call them exquisite. They have all the comforts you need, a nice outdoor kitchen and an open air shower. As one could expect there is an army of Colibris hoovering around, but the garden turned out to be very small, too small which gives a claustrophobic feeling at times. Combined with the...

All of us loved this place at first sight. We were accommodated in a clean and nicely done up bungalow with a huge porch, surrounded by trees, where we enjoyed our meals amongst all kinds of birds. The kitchen offers everything you need and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. There are a lot of interesting activities near by,...

From the initial contact via email until leaving the service was personal, very friendly and efficient and it was clear right from the beginning that nothing was too much effort from this wonderful team.

We speak very little French, but it was no problem here. The staff spoke wonderful English and was available at any time to give us recommendations on places to visit or eat.

The perfect paradise where hummingbirds kiss you good night, gekkos dine with you and chick wake you in the morning. It feels like you're in the jungle, in sync with the nature. No windows, no TV (the jungle keeps you entertained), just nature. The hosts are amazing people and help you out with everything. Thank you Linda and Matthieu. All...

We stayed for 3 weeks and were made to feel so at home. Lynda, Charlotte and Matthieu are such a caring, friendly team. Passionate about looking after their guests, creating a wonderful environment and sharing their island. Deshaies really is a wonderful spot too. We visited most parts of the island, but nowhere is as beautiful as around this area....

“We found the smallest bungalow (gite verte) to be perfectly adequate for our family of 4 with 2 boys aged 8 & 10.”
  • Here's the side of the bungalow...where the chickens loved to congregate!
  • This is the futon that my wife and I slept on. Again, very comfortable!
  • Here's the view of the welcome treats we had in our kitchen.
  • Bathroom was functional and cheery enough. Not luxurious but nice.
  • This is the main master bedroom of the Gite Verte...we just put the kids in there!
