Their name is spot-on accurate: a natural paradise
"The cottage is on a hilltop, overlooking the Bay and the Caribbean Sea, surrounded by a botanical garden's worth of tropical plants. A little bird that lives in a tree by the cottage literally ate crumbs out of my hand.
We had our own mini kitchen.
Internet was available upstairs, but didn't reach the cabin (which is a GOOD thing!!)
The pool was a few seconds away.
There were a couple other guests part of the time, but a lot of the time we basically had the place to ourselves.
The owners/hosts David and Wanda were super friendly, and found just the right balance of interaction - telling stories of St Lucia history and culture as well as of their own lives - and leaving us privacy.
Just getting to the place each day was part of the fun, driving the 4WD up the unpaved 1 lane road.
The place was clean and open and comfortable, with fancy furniture and nifty little touches like a shower enclosure made of glass block and giant fan blades reminiscent of fronds.
There isn't much way anything could have been improved upon without compromising something else.
I would def. go back if I ever end up in St Lucia again"

"Thank you for allowing Colette and me to share your home in St. Lucia. Needless to say, we had a marvelous vacation.
Poinsettia House was more than we could have imagined. Mornings and evenings on the deck created some memorable images.
Smalley is indeed a national treasure. Our time with him from/to the airport, touring the island, shopping in Castries, etc. was precious.
We had a delightful lunch at Coal Pot - thank you for the recommendation. The lion fish entrée at Rainforest Hideaway is to die for!
The lift only died once, and, quite frankly, the walk down and up was needed exercise.
Since we ate our main meal in the afternoon, we cooked most of our evening meals at Poinsettia.
Smalley dropped us off at the Super J on the way in from the airport for basic supplies, but the Marigourmet behind the bank in Marigot was a daily stop for evening provisions.
Excellent happy hour at Doolittles."

Five well deserved stars for this little piece of paradise.
"During the last few years, we've been in quite a few islands in the Caribbean and stayed in similar type of accommodation. This one is definitely one of the best! It's hard to describe the joy that we felt when we first saw the beautiful view over Marigot Bay from the porch or, the feeling of total relaxation while sipping rum (or drinking a smoothie from mangoes freshly picked from the tree behind the villa) in the hammock. One special Thank You goes to Jim, for his effort in putting together a very comprehensive "user manual" for his guests which proved extremely useful. We won't reiterate all the things already mentioned in other reviews but we wholeheartedly recommend this place and we'll definitely come back."

"When! we come back to St Lucia this is the only place we would ever think of staying! The view of Marigot Bay is breathtaking, the rooms are spotless & the hospitality of Danny & Ann was superb. The Belgium Night" was one of our favorites where we had a home made dinner and different beer from their home country. We still keep in touch with the other people we met while staying there. Can't wait to return!"
