“Home away from home”
Reviewed 6 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This was my third visit to St. Lucia and we decided to try a self-catering apartment rather than one of the big hotels as the majority of them were some distance from where we needed to be on this occasion (Vieux-Fort) and Laborie seemed a decent compromise location-wise.

Well, what an undiscovered gem. A small, picturesque fishing village with a lovely beach, friendly locals and gorgeous views if you are high up (as we were). There are some small grocery stores where we shopped each day, and a few places to eat and drink down in the village. Gill is very friendly and knowledgeable about the area and St. Lucia having lived there for over a decade, so if you have any questions or need any recommendations, just ask her.

Bay View - Cedar White is one of 2 self contained apartments owned by Gill and her husband (who are originally from the U.K.) and adjacent to their home. It has 1 double bedroom with a large outside balcony, 1 twin bedroom downstairs, open plan kitchen and living area with TV and bathroom with shower. The lovely balcony off the double bedroom has the most amazing views of Laborie Bay. It was a pleasure to spend each morning eating breakfast there and watching the sunset every evening with a glass of wine. There is Wi-Fi but the reception can be a bit hit-or-miss, but you're not in St. Lucia to be on the internet all the time!

It is definitely a place to stay if you are more of an independent traveller and enjoy going off the beaten track away from the mass tourism of the North of the island. Just one word of caution - this property is up a very steep hill. Not a problem if you have a car (we didn't) but it may be an issue if you have fitness or mobility issues. I consider myself fit and managed it OK, but I know my mother struggled with it. Having said that, the view of Laborie Bay once you're up there more than makes up for it. I really miss that view!

Thanks to Gill for her lovely hospitality and looking after us. We miss Laborie!

“Smart and private apartment with beautiful views”

We called to view this property whilst holidaying in laborie as we nearly booked it but didn't need a place with two rooms. This apartment shares virtually identical views as greenheart apartment as it is just below it on the hillside. We met the owners frequently during our stay, often taking advantage of their local knowledge as they have lived in St. Lucia for 13 years. Dave has built and finished both of his apartments to a very high standard, the tv in the picture has now also been updated to a flat screen. Gill is an obviously proud yorkshire woman who likes to keep a very clean home ready for her guests. We popped in en speck, and the apartment was immaculate, made comfortable with screens on all doors snd windows and ceiling tfans in the rooms. The garden to the property is lovely, and as this property is a little lower, less able walkers may find its location preferable. We didn't stop at Dave and Gills, but I would have no hesitation recommending it now that I have seenit. A larger group could even rent out both apartments within the grounds, the other being private over the garage.

“The real place with the million dollar view”
Reviewed 26 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Thank you Gill and David for a wonderful stay in their guesthouse with the 100000000 Dollar view. You've done a great Job and became friends within the 2 weeks of our stay. Not Rodney Bay, Marigit Bay or the other places are the right ones to be - Laborie is the place to stay and have the Carrbian Feeling - THANK YOU!! We'll see us again

“St Lucia - Local flavor”
Reviewed 4 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

This nice two-room apt is located less than 15 min from the International airport in Vieux Fort. We rented a car for my family (my wife and two teenage daughters) as this apt was the ideal location for the start of our vacation. The home is on a hill overlooking the fishing village of Laborie. There are few tourists in the area, but we felt comfortable walking around the village - folks there were very friendly for the most part and the town beach is only a 5 min walk and a great place for a swim. There is lots to do within a 30 min drive (Atlantic Shores Riding stables is great if you want to ride horses, Soufriere and the Pitons are about 30 min away). I think it best if you have a rental car to take advantage of the area, but you could get by with taxi rides. The two owner, Gillian and David, are gracious hosts and have lived there for 11 yrs, so know much about the area. If you want to see the real St. Lucia, this is a place I would highly recommend and it is a safe place too so fine for families traveling with kids.

“This is the real deal”
Reviewed 2 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Laborie is about as far away from the resorts around Rodney Bay in both distance and atmosphere as you can get. It’s a friendly village where you wake up to the sound of the conch shell being blown when the fish is in. There aren’t lines of restaurants serving cuisine from around the world, but who wants that when you can get the real St. Lucia deal in Laborie where the fun is visiting Ma Tilly, in her authentic local restaurant, and negotiating what she might cook for you the following day. Deliberating and debating with the locals in the rum shops over beer and rum punches is an experience beyond most Caribbean holidays. And the drinks are way cheaper than in the bland tourist resorts. Don’t miss the Big Bamboo which is party central on Friday and Saturday.

This comfortable apartment is at the edge of the village, up a steep hill, with a balcony overlooking the bay and some amazing sunsets. It’s perfect if you enjoy shopping for local food and eating dinner whilst listening to the sound of people and animals going about their business- from the early morning cockerels and reggae music to the lulling sound of cicadas.

Gill and Dave live in the adjoining house and made us very welcome. Gill was helpful advising us where to go and what to do. Dave helped us with lifts and arranged our car hire us which was great fun, although the Laborie beach is one that you could relax on (often with no other tourists in sight) day after day.
