Boiled Frog Guesthouse
Ranked #3 of 16 Castries B&B and Inns
Reviewed 6 January 2014

This review is well overdue! We returned from a vacation earlier last year in St. Lucia. Four days at the Boiled Frog and four days at a super-luxury resort in the southern Anse Cochon area. Needless to say, our stay at the Boiled Frog touched our hearts in a way that is difficult to describe, but I will make an attempt. Firstly, Danielle and Steve along with their wonderful boys made us feel so at home. We were concerned at first that maybe we are too private-a-people to enjoy the open and social nature of a bed and breakfast. To our surprise, by the time we were checking out of the Frog, we felt like we still had so many conversations that we still wanted to have with Danielle and Steve. We felt sad to leave them even though we were leaving the BF to check into a luxury resort.

They gave us amazing recommendations for places to eat, of which "The Wharf" was our favorite. We fell in love with "The Wharf's" accra so much that we re-create the dish whenever we need a lift. The location is perfect as it's a nice bus-ride to the city and also Rodney Bay where the beaches are nice. The BF is itself on a lovely beach which is great for a sun-bathing session, but not as comfy for a swim, but close enough (five minutes) to swimmable beaches.

I felt very safe at the BF even though it was located off the main road. I'm so glad we didn't rent a car as we traveled to popular spots both North and South of the BF. The location could not have been more convenient. Their terrace is huge and replete with fun lounging chairs and hammocks and a fridge full of all sorts of beverages.

We know we will be back to visit them at the Boiled Frog again as the St. Lucian experience cannot be the same without them. Danielle and Steve are a beautiful couple, remarkable human beings, inspiring parents and gracious hosts. We can all learn a lot from them.

The resort could not give us warm memories that the BF gave us-a special experience.

An excellent guest house on a small beach with lovely views and sunsets. The rooms off the terrace were comfortable and very large with plenty of storage space and big bathrooms. Breakfast was help yourself with lots of choice and hot drinks available all day. Danielle and her family were very welcoming and we would recommend a visit.

Room Tip: The twin room had a lot of natural light and a nice bathroom.

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.
