We spent over a week in the Avocado Cottage, high up a hillside, overlooking the blue Caribbean and the lush gardens below us. Our cottage was simple but comfortable, but we spent most of our time on the beautiful porch - a perfect spot for a glass of wine and the snacks we shared with the friendly birds. Wanda and David were exceptionally helpful and friendly and David's eco-tour of the island took us to many spots we would have missed on our own. Breakfasts, shared with the two to four other guests were leisurely and comfortable, especially when served on the terrace. The pool is lovely and has a great view, especially at sunset.The people of St. Lucia are friendly and kind and on each of the many times we were lost on back roads we were offered assistance. The roads can be treacherous and be aware that if you are over 65 you cannot rent a car anywhere on the island. And a four wheel car is a necessity. We especially enjoyed touring the island by a chartered sailboat with a very competent and outgoing crew and spending a day on Anse Chastenet, on the Atlantic side. Difficult to find but quiet and beautiful, with a nice cafe for lunch. The Saturday Market was a bounty of fruits and vegetables and local foods, but skip the crafts section - touristy imports. We had beautiful weather, met great people, were treated like friends by our hosts and had a memorable vacation. Highly recommended.
