The neighbourhood

The apt is in a quiet, residential street in Gros Islet town but still in the heart of vibe that includes nightlife, beach and nature. Our neighbours are close but the house is very private. The location is also safe and secure, with burglar bars and a fenced yard as additional safety precaution.
The famous Gros Islet Friday night street party is 2-short streets away as we are in the north of the island in the tourist centre. Although the noise does not disturb where we are.
You can browse for genuine Lucian-made jewellery, craft and art to take home, eat casual with fresh fish and seafood off the grill every Wednesday and Friday at Bayside, chill out by Irie Bar with some serious Rasta vibes or dine a-la-carte at Sandals or other high end restaurants.
Our place is easily accessible from all points as transport taxi is always available in Gros Islet an we're not far from a main highway.
There's a marina, pools, a water-park, churches, supermarkets and duty free shopping etc. very close, as well as historic sites, spas, horse riding, water-sports etc. There is a polyclinic as well as 2 police stations close by.

Great place if you want to be near the beach with excellent public transportation to Rodney Bay and Castries. Good price for good location.

Very cute place in a great location. Perfect for attending the Friday night street party (just a few minutes walk). Close to the Rodney Bay marina. Maria & Kenita are wonderful hosts. We enjoyed our stay. I do wish the fan didn't have a timed auto shutoff. I kept having to get up and turn it back on every 60 minutes during the night.

Maria and Kenita were both very helpful during my time there. Great location, very close to Gros Islet Friday Night Jump Up. Only two minutes to walk there but far enough away that it is quiet at night.

This is a great base for the north of the island, you are only a five minute stroll to the beach. Hosts were friendly and welcoming. Best suited for independent travellers looking for an anti-resort experience.

Maria / Kenita User Profile

We both work in human rights representing LGBTQI people in the eastern Caribbean. Through our work we have made many friends around the world. Many have been welcomed to our home. We have also been welcomed to the home of many people who have been lovely hosts and become solid friends. Very often people prefer when traveling to have friends in the country and we want to provide that kind of connection for people coming to Saint Lucia because we know it makes all the difference. We, along with our friends and family, will do our best to make sure that no matter how many miles you travel, you will always feel at home.
