Out of 3 guesthomes I frequented in throughout the island, this was my favorite guesthouse stay in St Lucia. PJ (Phil) and Claudia said "Welcome Home" when I walked into the "Somewhere Special Guesthouse". It was definitely a family vibe. Some of my favorites times was sitting on their bench outside the house watching the sunset and talking to the locals whom they all knew and introduced me to. Essentially, I met the local butcher (Einstein), the local horsebreeder (Bano), the local creole restaurant owner of Flavors of the Grill (Oneil), and many more of their local friends. The room was bright and colorful and the bathroom was huge. There was a fan to keep the mosquitoes away while I was sleeping. I was also happy about having internet wifi, an eletrical adapter for charging my cell phone and computer, and access to making local calls. The best feature about "Somewhere Special Guesthouse" is that it is located right on the Gros Islet Beach. The next best thing is that the acclaimed Friday night street party jump up is right outside the door of the guesthouse. This street party is massive and fun. Ironically, by Saturday morning, the street is totally clean. I really love the access to walking along the beach to the historic Pigeon Island in 20 minutes. I was able to ride horses and do watersports locally and also enjoy great local creole food. I will miss the roosters, dogs, and cats walking the streets. The Irie Bar just around the corner owned by Andy is a cool spot to relax as well. Rodney Bay is very close by where you can shop and do a lot of partying and clubbing. There is so much more to say about Gros Islet and Somewhere Special Guesthouse. I cant wait to visit again soon.
