Tapion House is a premier guest house in the upscale Tapion district of Castries, St Lucia. Our fully furnished suites are air conditioned, boast a full kitchen and in-suite laundry. We are centrally located and are close to Rodney Bay, Castries, Marigot and a host of activities. Come enjoy the quiet beauty of St Lucia and come Home. By The Sea. Stays of less than 3 nights will be considered, so feel free to contact us about shorter bookings!

The space

The whole suite is yours. This includes a fully equipped kitchen, living room with 32" TV, 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, laundry room, and balcony. The TV has Netflix, Tune In Radio and basic cable. The Master Bedroom has a Queen bed and the Junior Bedroom has a Full (aka Double) Bed. There are stairs to the unit, so unfortunately, we are not handi-accessible.

Interaction with guests

We live upstairs and will greet you upon arrival. If you need anything we are there for you. Our large, friendly dogs live upstairs with us and will not ever be permitted near you. The stairs to your suite are about 50 feet from their fence and there is no reason for you to ever interact with them unless you choose to.

Other things to note

For those who would prefer to not cook for themselves or would like to try the local fare without venturing out, we have partnered with Chef Trevor Robinson. With 24 hours notice, he will bring you meals selected from his menu or anything you agree on. Also, maid service is available throughout the week if required for additional fees negotiated directly with the service. VAT is included in the price you pay.

We spent 11 amazing nights at Don and Doris' house in Tapion. We could easily have spent 11 more. From our arrival (greeted with two ice cold cocktails) to departure Don and Doris were the perfect hosts. Fantastic location, Tapion house is a 15 minute walk away from the capital. The house had everything we needed for our stay, including beautiful sunsets from the balcony. They had even gone to the trouble of filling the fridge with food and drink which was a lovely touch. Wifi connection was really good. Youtube Netflix etc available if you wanted to watch TV on the night It is located a short drive from the Island famous Gros Islet jump up party which occurs EVERY Friday and is well worth a visit, which we did (with Don and Doris) They passed on great travel tips, where to visit, beaches, food places etc. We are planning one day to return to St Lucia as 11 days is not enough time to see the whole island and we will be staying again with Don and Doris.

We stayed at Don's place for just 1 night and it was great! We were greeted with daiquiris and the apartment was equipped with literally everything you can imagine from umbrellas if it rained to snorkelling gear for the beaches. Everything has been considered! I'll definitely be recommending this place! The location is just 15 min walk from Castries where you can get a bus anywhere on the island :) thanks for a lovely stay!

We had a fantastic second visit with Don and Doris in their lovely Lucian home. They were great hosts, and we really enjoyed our stay. The house was clean and comfortable with a kitchen that had everything we needed! The neighborhood is quiet and safe- close to Castries but away from all of the loud noise. We enjoyed picking fruit from the trees in the garden and using the BBQ and charcoal that Don provided us with. We really appreciated the tips that they gave us- Don and Doris know all the best beaches and restaurants! They are also helpful in helping their guests to get around. This is the perfect spot for anyone hoping to visit St Lucia - a great place with wonderful hosts who are willing to go above and beyond to make your stay more comfortable.

We had a lovely stay with Don and Doris at Tapion house. The suite was as described and provided us with everything we needed. The beds were comfy, the kitchen well-equipped, and the air conditioning greatly appreciated! The real magic of staying with Don and Doris are all the little extras that they offer to you as a part of the experience - pick ups from the airport, local advice, good know how, lifts to local attractions, free snorkelling gear, and mango daiquiris to name a few! I didn't get the opportunity to meet Doris but Don was incredibly kind. Their dogs are lovely. The view from the appartment is great too! I would definitely stay here again.

Don and Doris are great hosts. This was a great place to stay. We had the privilege of staying here for 11 nights. Upon arrival, we were welcomed with rum drinks, a few groceries and a local phone for our stay. They were easily accessible by phone or just going upstairs to visit. The bus shuttle is a couple minute walk down the road which will take you into Castries. Or it's about a 20 minute walk into town. The location is centrally located, which we preferred since we wanted to spend time split between Anse Le Ray Castries, and Rodney Bay. Thank you Don and Doris for the great hospitality.
