As a lone traveller this was a great place to stay, Micheal and Andrea were very welcoming and made me feel right at home. The room was simple but clean. The guesthouse was excellent value and within walking distance of a lot of the sights. The view was fabulous overlooking Soufriere and Petite Piton. If you would like to experience the real culture and people this is for you, it is not the artificial set up of an all inclusive!

Spent 4 lovely days at Uptown (which is more commonly known as "Talk to Me" locally. Andrea and Michael were accommodating and warm hosts and two young women I met who they employ were lovely to talk with, and both enjoyed sharing information and tips with me about what to see in the area. The location is about 1.5 km from town, as one drives up the mountainside. The view from my room (two large wooden windows floor to ceiling) was absolutely stunning! All of Soufriere and Gros Piton to enjoy! The room I (for a very reasonable price through Expedia) had a shower (flick switch for hot water) and toilet and stove. The hosts invited me to use a fridge in their kitchen which I could access any time. This allowed me to have breakfast and coffee (yes! A coffee maker!) before heading out for the day and gave me a place to keep a couple Piton chilled :) Meals could be provided by the hosts but I didn't take advantage this trip - maybe next time. It always smelled very good! As a single female traveller I loved the sense of family and comfort here - there are only 8 rooms and before long everyone was familiar and my hosts were easily found if needed. A wonderful home away from home for the casual traveller who is seeking an experience of life in St Lucia and not a resort. Thank you Andrea and Michael! See You again I hope! The pictures include a view Of my lovely window opening over the city and Piton, a stunning view From the communal balcony and a picture inside the room (after I'd messed up the bed lol)

Be aware of this place, Particularly Michael he gives you a price based on how you look ( foreigners vs local) I live in the US but I'm from the Caribbean. The prices changed once he saw my wife ( Caucasian) but we were bound to stay at his place since all the other hotels in the area were booked. Do Not bring your family here! We had (2) rooms booked once we got there we had to book (3) rooms because the accommodations were not as stated. The place is actually for sale and extremely run down. Avoid Avoid Avoid!!! Pay the extra money to stay somewhere else.

Checked out after one terrible night - until 2 am excruciating, over-amplified music'noise from a entertainment park below, plus chores of roosters nonstop until morning! My room had only louver doors, no glass. Couldn't diminish the noise. Further there were no sockets or sidelights by the bed, no adapters, no fan or AC. Had explained all of this to the friendly owner lady who admitted these shortfalls, but was nevertheless charged for the full 3 nights plus charges I unfortunately had booked in advance, although I'd refused to sign the CC slip. The Guesthouse' overgrown entrance was mostly parked up tight, one literally had to squeeze through to open the rusty, jammed bolt. There was cracked concrete, some rails missing on steep passages, in general a unappealing impression.

Michael (Host) seems very nice in first place, but unfortunately he only tries to fool you. Told us he has the best price (tours) and gives us cheap taxi rides to nearby beaches. But in the end he just sold us overpriced "Adventure tour" and taxi rides. We were actually shocked, didnt expect something like that from our host. Dont book any taxi or tours with him. The adventure tour is only a overpriced taxi ride to the waterfalls and volcano. Also if you have no car, its a very long (exhausting :-)) way up the hill to get to the place. To sum up, we cant recomment this place, if you wanna stay at soufriere you should stay at the hummingbird resort.
