NOTE: If a search was made without stipulating the month of occupation the rate shown on the search results page is for the lowest cost month and the least expensive room. Where pricing is "per unit" the Average Price Per Person based on maximum occupancy is used for the price range comparison. A search made for Homes and Villas however will always be based on the full daily rate of the unit irrespective of the number of people the unit sleeps.

Guest Comments

A strange experience - the B&B was scruffy and most of the birdcages were empty. There was no access to the Msundui River. My son took an immediate dislike to the B&B, which is unusual for him. The staff were friendly but their morale was low; the management left us in a dark room during a power failure after failing to repair the generator electricity access - I had to ask to be moved into a room with electricity. The food at the restaurant was of poor quality (frozen chips and vegetables, tough meat)- restaurants in St Lucia offered better value. The rooms were clean and comfortable.
