Colvin’s B&B is located near Castries, an easy 5-10 minute bus ride to/from town. The house itself is a comfortable, open space with a beautiful view of the ocean. But the real value is the owner, Colvin. He is multi-talented, a font of knowledge on local matters, a gifted chef who prepared a delicious New Year’s meal for the guests as well as hearty daily breakfasts. He also arranged many tourist-type activities for us such as trips to the volcano, sulfur baths and pitons in the south, along with local massage and other requests. Perhaps even more, he is a genuinely kind and good person who cares about his guests and his island.
Colvin was a great host, he is a genuinely nice guy with bubbly personality who wants to show you his beloved island in its best. He will go out of the way to make sure you have the best time. He has a beautiful spacious clean house. It is home away from home. Colvin was efficient communicating with us when our ferry was delayed and still managed to pick us up on arrival although he had other commitments. He even upgraded us to a larger room with balcony - this was a real treat especially after such a long and tiring journey. As we arrived late eating places were closed and as such Colvin offered us some of his food so we didn't go to bed with empty stomachs. He was very flexible, friendly, nothing was too much trouble for him. He dropped us off for our diving day at Marigot Bay and collected us later after dinner. His breakfast were delicious and we enjoyed talking with him and sharing experiences. We very much enjoyed our stay.
