This is an outstanding residence, set in wonderful gardens less than 5 mins walk from the hub of the village. The rooms are stunning with either views over the pool area or from the upper floor views of the garden. Breakfast is served outside on the patio area and was well presented with a wide selection available.

Everything was perfect. Totally new and style house. Beautiful and clean pool. The room was large and comfortable with a king size bed and a integrated toilet and shower. The owners Olga & Hans are very friendly. Thank you very much for a pleasant stay! We will return sometimes!

This place is a five star architectural work of art that thought of everything!! The room is amazing, the pool is amazing, the whole property is right down to the polished wood steps! The owner designed and built it in 2005 and he didn't miss a detail!

We were here for 6 nights in a garden room. It was a very large, with very interesting, modern architecture. We didn't see a hippo in the garden, but saw several birds, monkeys (love the catapult to get rid of them at eating times!) and duikers. Olga and Hans have made this into a wonderfully relaxing place to stay. We...

We loved the architecture of this guesthouse. It was very spacious: our room as well as the common area. The owners, Hans and Olga as well as their friendly staff were very present and helpful. We can recommend the Hippo and Croc tour. St Lucia is a nice little town.

Lovely location and facilities. Great welcome and trips organized immediately. Understand water shortage but wish we had been told that bath plugs removed as freezing after night drive, and bath was not available, then lights in room blew and no staff in site at night
