From the moment we arrived, we felt at home. A beautiful house with lush gardens and a big patio where the excellent breakfast was served. In our spacious room with bath and shower, we also had a choice of wine and cold drinks, and a large balcony overlooking the pool. I wish we had stayed longer to really relax and enjoy St Lucia and the Elephant Coast Guesthouse to its full. Hosts were friendly and accommodating, and we will definitely be back!

My wife and I had a wonderful time there and were really made to feel 'at home'. Although somewhat older than most couples celebrating a 5th wedding anniversary (both in our 60's) we enjoyed every minute of our stay. The owners and staff could not have done more for us. A big "Thank You" for a lovely break.Brian and Janet Warren
