This offers best view, a very clean appartment and very friendly owner. The house is in walking distance to the bars and restaurants of the very nice small town Laborie, the best smal town in St. Lucia.
Our stay at the apartment was the second stop on our honeymoon and it was wonderful. The view from the balcony overlooking the bay was incredible.. The hosts were very attentive and had helpful suggestions depending on our plans for the day. We rented a vehicle and recommend it as it is nice to be mobile. The hill that the apartment is on is big and steep but it is great for stretching the legs on a walk into the main part of town
The hosts even arranged a great deal for a car rental (actually a small jeep which was fun to drive on the island roads) and drove us into the nearby city to pick it up.
Would definitely stay there on our next trip to St Lucia - an amazing island!!
Laborious in a great location, completely non touristy but with a good bus route you can easily access a wide area and is very cheap. I felt safe in laborie, people friendly and helpful. Good food, we had lobster at mama tilly's, grilled marlin at salt rush and conch (lambi) at mama rose all fab!, best rum punch at mama tilly's although the most expensive for laborie. David and Gill were very helpful hosts, always there to give advice on best places to visit and how to get there. Yes as other reviews say it is a steep hill to get there but on a plus side I didn't gain weight on holiday and it does only take 5 minutes, truly. Recommended stay.
We had a wonderful time at our laid back apartment overlooking the small fishing village of Laborie in the south west corner of St Lucia. The apartment was perfect for me and my wife. The village is around 15-20 mins driving from the international airport in Vieux Fort and is well situated for short day trips to the small old colonial town of Soufriere, the impressive pitons and good snorkeling at beaches around Soufriere. The village itself is very friendly and has some interesting old wooden buildings and a nice beach.
The 2 bedroom apartment was very clean and had all the amenities for self catering. The nice balcony overlooks the bay and village and is perfect for breakfast and an aperitif in the evening. We purchased fresh fish (tuna, barricuda, mahi mahi) nearly every day from the village port below. For other nights we ate at the excellent Mama Tilly's in Laborie. There is also a superb (and pricey) restaurant around 30 mins drive away called Dasheene at Ladera resort that has good food and impressive views of the pitons . We rented a car for visiting other parts of the island and recommend this for others.
Dave and Gill were great hosts and helped us with airport & rental car pickup, directions and recommendations etc. We highly recommend this property for other holidaymakers
