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.
