“Love it!”
Reviewed 5 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

My boyfriend and I stayed with Gill and Dave for 7 nights of the 14 we spent in St Lucia and it was just perfect for us. It was by far my favourite in comparison to the much pricier bed & breakfast we stayed at in nearby Soufriere.

The place its self is extremely clean, out of the entire week I had only seen a total of 2 bugs in our apartment. It is more like a guesthouse, which is adjacent to where Gill & Dave live so they will say hi or bye if they are around. Our experience in Laborie would not have been the same without the help of Gill and Dave who were beyond generous and kind people! Not in the slightest did I EVER feel as if my privacy was being compromised or that I was being "checked up on" as a previous guest had mentioned on a review of their other apartment. If you are the type of person that does not want to speak to anyone on vacation then I would suggest letting your hosts know or going to an all inclusive.

Gill would be so kind to take away the garbage every other day or so, to ensure it would not stink up the place, or small things like pick up a towel on the floor or straighten out a bed sheet. Nothing more.

Laborie is a very special place. The people who live there are some of the nicest. I would suggest going to Mama Tilly's on the first night as she can cook up a mean BBQ. Barely to no tourists. There were two beaches by the village within 10-15 minute walking distance (we much preferred the secluded one). We did all of our grocery shopping in one trip thanks to Yarde, our driver, who we were referred to. You can pick up some produce at the morning market as well and other kitchen staples in the village which is closer than the beach. The kitchen was as good as home! Well equipped. We did not know what to expect before arriving as it is a very small town but the moment Our hosts greeted us upon arrival, We knew we had made the right choice.

“OK little cottage”
Reviewed 14 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016
3
people found this review helpful

This is a clean well done little cottage on the hill overlooking the genuine fishing village of Laborie. It is well equipped and the hosts are accommodating and informative with lots of good advice. The description is a bit mis-leading as there is barely a view unless you stand on tippy toes. There is a tiny confining back yard and sadly no deck to hang out on. It is an OK value as long as you plan to be out and about. The village is very authentic - like the Caribbean was a long time ago. The beach on the north end of the cove is lovely. Miss Tilly's is good local food. The place is happy- the babies don't even cry! One warning - this is a real neighborhood in the Caribbean- not too quiet - lots of dogs and roosters.

“Friendly & Friendly”
Reviewed 19 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We stayed here for a week at the end of December. We were welcomed by David at the airport with a big smile and we felt instantly at home, he brought us to the apartment en route pointing out grocery store, atm, etc etc. First off - Gillian and David are just lovely, very down to earth and nothing is too much trouble. The apartment is up a very steep hill, we knew this before we booked, but if you do have any knee or hip problems, best to get a car for the duration, we were one day without one and David ran us to the supermarket and picked us up from the beach as well. The apartment has a good sized kitchen and living area with a bedroom - our only pick would be we found the mattress very hard, but this is a personal thing. We had our own private garden to sit in where we supped our rums and listened to the children playing steel band music in the village. Laborie is just lovely, truly un spoilt with only a handful of tourists - a beautiful bay, good swimming and very friendly locals - try to time your visit for the Laborie Festoon, a once a month I think first Friday of the month party where you can eat fish, lobster (cheaply) listen to music, see stilt walkers and more and it was fabulous. I highly recommend this accommodation and owners, at all times you will feel welcome and safe.

“Great time at Bayview Golden Apple”
Reviewed 21 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This is a really sweet condominium; spotless with very nice amenities. Yes, there is a lovely view from the kitchen. The host was very nice, welcoming and knowledgeable about things that made my stay much more enjoyable, including delicious food. I didn't rent a car but the host was able to connect me with safe and reasonably priced transportation, so I was able to go sightseeing without any difficulty. There are actually two nearby beaches, I preferred the more secluded one, but both are spectacular. I would definitely return to this condo; staying there made my vacation in St. Lucia simply wonderful.

“Friendly, well situated rural site away from the crowds”

Friendly and helpful hosts, an impeccably clean independant flat with well equipped kitchen. The small but private and shady garden is perfect for eating and exotic birds share your breakfast crumbs. Full mosquito netting on windows means you can leave them open to enjoy a cool breeze at night. You may hear a little music and a few cockerels for local atmosphere.
Laborie beach is great, with friendly locals, including the sea moss planter, and no hustlers.
Good to have a car to visit other beaches like Ivrogne, Sugar Beach and Chastanet, but our neighbours managed OK with local buses.

“Go native in style”
Reviewed 21 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Gracious hosts, well furnished condo, handy the beach, in town shopping, and refreshing sea breezes with local activities daily. David and Gillian give a 120% as hosts. Great hints of things to do, see, taste and visit.

David & Gil, the owners, were warm and friendly and were eager to ensure all my needs were met. The apartment was well equiped and comfortable. When walking from center of town, it's quite a climb (if driving, not an issue) but the view is spectacular.
