We stayed here for a week at the end of December. We were welcomed by David at the airport with a big smile and we felt instantly at home, he brought us to the apartment en route pointing out grocery store, atm, etc etc. First off - Gillian and David are just lovely, very down to earth and nothing is too much trouble. The apartment is up a very steep hill, we knew this before we booked, but if you do have any knee or hip problems, best to get a car for the duration, we were one day without one and David ran us to the supermarket and picked us up from the beach as well. The apartment has a good sized kitchen and living area with a bedroom - our only pick would be we found the mattress very hard, but this is a personal thing. We had our own private garden to sit in where we supped our rums and listened to the children playing steel band music in the village. Laborie is just lovely, truly un spoilt with only a handful of tourists - a beautiful bay, good swimming and very friendly locals - try to time your visit for the Laborie Festoon, a once a month I think first Friday of the month party where you can eat fish, lobster (cheaply) listen to music, see stilt walkers and more and it was fabulous. I highly recommend this accommodation and owners, at all times you will feel welcome and safe.
This is a really sweet condominium; spotless with very nice amenities. Yes, there is a lovely view from the kitchen. The host was very nice, welcoming and knowledgeable about things that made my stay much more enjoyable, including delicious food. I didn't rent a car but the host was able to connect me with safe and reasonably priced transportation, so I was able to go sightseeing without any difficulty. There are actually two nearby beaches, I preferred the more secluded one, but both are spectacular. I would definitely return to this condo; staying there made my vacation in St. Lucia simply wonderful.
Friendly and helpful hosts, an impeccably clean independant flat with well equipped kitchen. The small but private and shady garden is perfect for eating and exotic birds share your breakfast crumbs. Full mosquito netting on windows means you can leave them open to enjoy a cool breeze at night. You may hear a little music and a few cockerels for local atmosphere.
Laborie beach is great, with friendly locals, including the sea moss planter, and no hustlers.
Good to have a car to visit other beaches like Ivrogne, Sugar Beach and Chastanet, but our neighbours managed OK with local buses.

Gracious hosts, well furnished condo, handy the beach, in town shopping, and refreshing sea breezes with local activities daily. David and Gillian give a 120% as hosts. Great hints of things to do, see, taste and visit.
David & Gil, the owners, were warm and friendly and were eager to ensure all my needs were met. The apartment was well equiped and comfortable. When walking from center of town, it's quite a climb (if driving, not an issue) but the view is spectacular.
