“Just great!”
Reviewed 14 December 2013

Just returned from a wonderful holiday on St. Lucia. We stayed 9 days in a small cottage at the Boiled Frog and enjoyed our stay there very much. Everything was perfect - lovely family who gave us always very helpful advices and Danielle as well as Steve are wonderful cooks! We loved to spend supper together, enjoyed the delicious food and it was really nice and informative to talk to the family members and other guest in a familiar atmosphere. The house is situated directly at the sea and we could do long walks along the shore. The is a reef just in front but also lovely places for bathing. Just in front of the house is a bus stop for local busses which is comfortable and easy to handle. The site is huge and beside a big indoor-terrace there is another terrace outside and a huge garden. Also sunchairs are available.
Thanks again to Danielle and Steve and also the kids and parents - We had a wonderful time!!!

I've stayed in Boiled Frog Guest House at the end of October for four nights. This was one of the most relaxing holidays I ever had.
Guest House is located by the sea, but not far from main road which leads to Castries one way and to Rodney Bay and Pigeon Island the other way.You don't need rent a car or call a taxi to travel around: there is bus stop close by and buses are cheap and reliable.
My room as well as house terrace were facing beautiful view over the the beach. On the terrace there was plenty of space for hammocks, sofas, chairs and big dining table - where everyone meet for diner. Dinner meals were home cooked and always delicious.
Friendly hosts, relaxed atmosphere and beautiful sea sunsets made this holiday very special.

Just returned from a wonderful week stay at the Boiled Frog! It was everything we had wanted, and more! Perfect location, relaxed atmosphere and very helpful hosts! Not to mention their lovely children - especially Pod. It's a precious gem between the Sandals resorts! Thanks Danielle and Steve!

Room Tip: Perfect alternative to the pricey resorts. The sea is the same at the Boiled Frog!

As others have noted, it you like big, fancy all-inclusives, the Boiled Frog probably isn't for you. But if you like a homey atmosphere in a quiet location at the end of a gorgeous, expanse of beach with relaxed hosts who offer everything from home-cooked meals to information to make your stay wonderful, you'll likely enjoy the Boiled Frog. I spent 8 nights here while attending a conference in Gros Islet and want to take my husband back for a vacation sometime soon. After travelling for almost 3 months, the home-cooked meals were a treat, the freedom to eat breakfast whenever I was ready was so welcome, and the sunsets with a glass of wine, chatting with very friendly hosts was the perfect end to another day in paradise. The wifi was the best I'd had in 3 months, plus there were electrical outlets to charge laptops, tablets etc on the veranda. I only wish I'd had more time to chill in a hammock reading a book.

Thanks to Danielle, Steve, and the boys our move to Saint Lucia was painless. We thought about Saint Lucia but had almost ruled it out due to not being able to find much on day to day living. We received an email and Danielle answered numerous questions and concerns. We booked our week and the Boiled Frog was everything we could ask for.. The Boiled Frog is close to everything, situated on the beach front, no crowds. You can choose to dine with the family Danielle is a fantastic cook . We have now been on island for two months and enjoying retirement. Thanks again for making our dream come true.

My husband and I spent the first part of our Honeymoon here. We couldn't have asked for anything more. The owners organised a taxi there for us and had the fridge filled with drinks for our arrival. The location is fantastic- right on the beach with a great terrace and garden for lounging in hammocks and a supermarket and restaurant/bar in easy walking distance, the town of Castries a bit more of a walk. Danielle, Steve and the boys make you very welcome and Danielle is a fantastic cook. We had 3 lovely meals there- even including both meat and vegan options to suit us both! Excellent value for money too. We hope to return one day!

The beach right outside is basically your own to share with a few locals. There's a supermarket over the road which sells everything you'd ever need. There's a bus stop outside which is ridiculously cheap to get you up to rodney bay and gros islet. Getting the bus is an experience in itself!

The room was big and opened onto the terrace, the air conditioning was amazing! The more expensive places we stayed on the island didn't even have air con. Danielle and Steve were really really good hosts and supplied us with everything we needed whilst also being really chilled. The whole family are lovely and it was great to be around dogs whilst missing our own at home!

We were originally going to book a B&B right In Rodney Bay but are so so glad we chose here, I highly recommend you do the same!
