From our guestbook:

 

Will, Steph and Dyson, Thank you tremendously for your kindness and hospitality. We couldn't have stayed our vacation in a better area or in a better guesthouse. Thank you again and we hope to see you in the future! Love.

Where do we begin??? Our first time to St. Lucia and the Caribbean and we loved it. The Bay Guesthouse is perfect and so are Will and Steph. You are so helpful in every way, easy to talk to and indeed a lot of fun and interesting conversations! We embraced the culture with open arms and the Bay Guesthouse is perfectly situated to allow us to do that. Getting to know Dyson was such a pleasure and Cynthia couldn't have done a better job! All fantastic people, thank you to all. Wish we didn't have to leave... our thoughts and hearts will always be here. With many thanks again.

 

Simone and Richard, Canada, December 2014

We have been here for the best 4 weeks we have ever had in the Caribbean, though we have already seen quite a lot. But this place and the hosts are unbeatable! A big compliment to Stephanie and Will for their overwhelming hospitality and their good mood. Many thanks for allowing us to operate my amateur radio and 'beautify' their property with my antennas. We will recommend your guesthouse! AND: We will be back sooner or later!

 

Erika and Gerd, Germany, December 2014

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We have been here for 4 weeks now, and we are enjoying our last evening close by the sea. You can't be closer to the sea than here. The Bay Guesthouse is a beautiful place. We enjoyed swimming in the sea several times a day. Stephanie and Will are excellent and highly professional hosts. They answered all of our questions and really took good care of us. The place is kept extremely clean - thank you Cynthia! Dyson is a bright young man who knows alot about the Flora and Fauna of St Lucia. We learned a lot from him. Stephanie and Will thank you for making our stay so enjoyable and pleasant! Lots of good wishes for the future.

 

Christiane and Dietmar, Germany, September 2014

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Before our holiday we read about the Bay Guesthouse on TripAdvisor. Turns out: All the extremely positive reviews could not be more correct! We have really enjoyed our stay here this week and we will recommend this place to friends and family. We feel we have gotten a far more authentic St. Lucian experience here than we would have had at any resort.

 

Havard and Mark, Norway, July 2014

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We've been here 6 days now, and are spending another beautiful evening enjoying beverages, listening to the crickets and tree frogs sing against the waves splashing quietly onto the shore.

Will and Stephanie have been wonderful hosts and we have been trying to figure out how to fit Polka and Pepsi into our 1 suitcase, with no luck. See you again. We promise!

 

Chad and Wynter, Canada, July 2014

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you for making our short stop in Gros Islet so enjoyable. Had everything we could possibly needed and the welcome Pitons were much appreciated. Thanks again.

 

Joe and Becca, June 2014

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Will and Stephanie, thank you for a very relaxing and pleasant stay! For a nice welcome even if we arrived late in the evening, for all the information, for borrowing us the snorkeling gear and for keeping this place extremely clean and 'homey' :) Sunny greetings.

 

Tjalle and Serena, Netherlands, May 2014

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Our second stay at the Bay Guesthouse was very nice. We had beautiful weather. Will and Stephanie are the best hosts. This island is so beautiful. The vacation was too quickly ended. We think we come back again.

 

Zilli and Uwe, Germany, April 2014

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Stephanie and Will, we wish we would have planned more than just 3 nights at this great place! The best sunsets and the beautiful lonesome beaches just some steps away. Can't see why anyone would spend all that money on the big resorts when you can have this instead! We loved the huge garden, the views, the dogs and your hospitality. Thank you so much!

 

Konstanze and Marco, Sweden, March 2014

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A wonderful escape from the grey skies of Scotland to this beautiful island - warm and sunny with a few rain showers... Will and Stephanie have been gold * hosts. Thank you both for such a perfect holiday. Cynthia is a treasure who everyday cleans and tidies our room. And Dyson the night staff is a bright young man who should go far. Much appreciated the clean towels every two days and clean sheets more often than at home! Brilliant. A thousand thanks.

 

Myrth and Andy, Scotland, March 2014 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I've enjoyed my stay a lot, both the guesthouse and the island. I like the place for the guesthouse. It is close to the sea, it's a local area and yet it's close to Reduit Beach area, and with the mini buses easay to go to Castries or other places.

 

Linus, Sweden, February 2014

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

The next to last day of our 10 day stay... :( We are sad to be leaving this beautiful and relaxing place. It has been an amazing stay... Much thanks to everyone - Cynthia, Dyson, and especially Stephanie and Will for all their help. Perfect hosts! Best of all we enjoyed mixing it with the other guests fom Sweden, France, Germany and Scotland.

 

Kathy and Ray, USA, February 2014

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The week we've spent at the Bay Guesthouse left us speechless... No words can truly describe the magic of this place. Gros Islet is beyond what one can expect from a Caribbean island. Every single person we met there made us feel welcome and showed amazing and touching kindness. Will & Stephanie are by far the best hosts we could have, giving us the best tips to explore this beautiful island. Needless to say that we will be back as we literally fell in love with St Lucia.

Ami and Chris, February 2014

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Stephanie and Will, thank you for making our first visit to Saint Lucia a memorable trip! We apprecaite your kindness and hospitality. 'The Book' you provided us with was perfect for sending us off on many fantastic adventures on this magnificent island!

 

Ric and Cyn, USA, January 2014

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We want to thank you for being the best hotel hosts we have ever encountered! Your G.H. is a 'diamond in the rough'  and we just loved it all! Everything just exceeded our expectations.

 

Bill and Raylene, Canada, January 2014

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We want to thank you Stephanie and Will, for your lovely place that offers us an unforgetable vacation in this small paradise. We had a great holiday that we will always remember. Thanks again and all the best to you and your family.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Thank you for the wonderful stay! Thank you for all your help with organising our trips and all the useful tips.

Such a pity we didn't stay longer :( Hopefully next time! Keep up the great job you are doing. We will spread the word.

See you next time!

 

Katerina and Juraj, Slovakia, December 2013

Marian and Dan, November 2013

We had a great time in the house. A little paradise! We enjoyed our stay and for sure we will come back. Thank you Will for your kindness.

 

Lepine family, France, 2013

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

From the moment I began to look for a St Lucia hotel / guesthouse and I saw this guesthouse, I said to myself this is it, I booked and the rest is history. Simply beautiful from the first date of arrival. Easilya ccessible, stunning views, sights, clean place, friendly people and not forgetting Will (our host). He is genuinely pleasant. We will carry back home beautiful memories of St Lucia. We pray that this island remains just as beautiful for visitors to keep returning. Love from Trinidad.

 

Brenda and Clement, Trinidad, July 2013

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Will and Steph are amazing! They have gone out of their way to accommodate us and to make us feel very welcome - thanks again! What an amazing month!

 

Sarah and Lucy, England, May 2013

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Will and Stephanie are wonderful hosts, and are a wealth of information on the island. Thanks for all the hospitality.

 

Adam and Lisa, Canada, May 2013

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What a fantastic guesthouse in a fab location... The beautiful sunsets are worth the trip alone! Although we have only stayed for 3 nights we felt at home straight away thanks to your excellent hosting skills.

 

Chris and Louise, England, April 2013

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Stephanie and Will, unfortunately we just stayed 2 days, but we enjoyed every minute in your lovely and peaceful place. The view is amazing, and besides the idyllic we are very thankful for your perfect hosting. Anytime we get the chance we will COME BACK to your beautiful guesthouse. We wish you all the best!!! Thank you.

 

Luara and Elias, April 2013

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We stayed here on this dream of a place for 10 days and are so sorry to leave! Will and Stephanie did all the best to make this a home away from home - and succeded indeed!

 

Danne, Norway, April 2013

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Last night on the terrace downstairs at Bay Guesthouse - lovely, calming, beautiful and from here to heaven is paradise. Being a picky Norwegian Arab :) I find this place making me really happy. I would never stay anywhere else in Gros Islet - never! I would even come here on my own, just enjoying. Thank you very, very much!

 

Vigdis, Norway, April 2013

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Will and Stephanie, thank you so much for everything! The guesthouse is beautiful and you two are just awazing! It's been a great pleasure to stay here and to get to know you. Hopefully we'll meet again some day. "St. Lucia we love"

Lotta and Chris, Germany, March 2013

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Stephanie, Dear Will, Your guesthouse is a wonderful place ! We enjoyed every second staying here. The view over the sunset from the garden or the porch was just overwhelming. The only thing better than this place was your helpfulness, you made our vacation the best time possible ! Starting with our contact from Germany, to all your help in planning the wedding, you made everything perfect. Thanks a million for everything !! We’d love to come back some time.
 

Antje and Peter, Germany, March 2013

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks Will and Stephanie for your great hospitality ! This is the most perfect way to relax from work and winter in Sweden.

Hope to come back.

 

Bjorn and Marie, Sweden, February 2013
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It was like returning home after 7 years away. Will definitely not leave it so long next time ! Thank you for another lovely stay.

Hard to leave this little haven by the sea.

 

Jodi and Carole, London UK, February 2013
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hosts extraordinaire ! We escaped the wintry weather of North America and found warmth – not only in the sun but also in the people. Thank you for your great help in planning each day.

 

Jennifer and Paul, USA, February 2013
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Many thanks for being such great hosts ! Thoroughly enjoyed the great view from the guesthouse, local cuisine and the walks to Pigeon Island.

 

Fiona, London UK, January 2013

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What a wonderful holiday. A million dollar view. ‘The perfect spot’ to unwind and rest. Ideal place to enjoy the flavours of the island. Your hospitality has greatly enhanced our stay.

John and Bernice, Canada, January 2013
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Fabulous first week of our holidays spent here at Bay Guesthouse. It has been everything we wished for. We are / were a large group, up on the first floor rooms and one downstairs. Many thanks to Will and Stephanie for making us welcome and for helpful advise. Super stay and sure we will return.

 

The Daleys, London UK, January 2013 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you Stephanie and Will for the beautiful vacation in your guesthouse. Thank you for all the things for us. I never had a guesthouse before where the owners were so helpful. I’m happy that I met so many nice people in this area. Hope to see you all again.

Desiree, Germany, November 2012
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks very much for a great vacation Stephanie and Will ! We really enjoyed every minute of our time here, especially your tips and help us made our stay a great one ! Well, thanks very much again and look forward to catching up with you.

 

Stefanie and Oliver, Germany, November 2012 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks for an excellent stay ! Having been working on Guadeloupe for a month, coming here was a welcome change, and allowed us to discover the real Caribbean way of life. This is the perfect place to come for sun, sea and relaxation but also offers the chance to be included in all the activities and entertainment that St Lucia has to offer, whilst being removed from the tourist traps.

Luke and Edgar, England, October 212
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you for a beautiful, relaxing (and rainy in parts) stay on your beautiful island. You saved us from the Sandals, Landings or other minor operation ! Keep your warmth and refreshing charm and the authenticity.

 

Barbara and Hannes, Germany, October 2012 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks Stephanie and Will, we spent some beautiful days in your nice and friendly guesthouse. Thanks for your warm hospitality. Your area direct and close to the ocean is a great place for a total relax.

Manuela and Thomas, Germany, October 2012
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you for your wonderful hospitality. I checked in all stressed out and I checked out totally relaxed. Down to earth, extremely helpful hosts combined with an extraordinary setting make a stay in this guesthouse a stay in paradise !!!

 

Junior, Dominican Republic, September 2012 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you and merci for the beautiful experience Bay Guesthouse was. We didn't imagine our first days in the Caribbean to be this close to the beach and the sea  ! St Lucia and Gros Islet was a very nice trip, we were glad not to be in one of the touristy places or big resorts. Keep it simple and low budget ! You were wonderful hosts !

Gust and Kirsten, Belgium, August 2012
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you Stephanie and Will for a fantastic stay at the guesthouse in Gros Islet. You were incredible hosts and went way above and beyond to help us with directions, advise and anything else, and always with a smile. Your guesthouse is lovely, affordable and everything we needed. Thanks again Stephanie and Will and I wish your guesthouse nothing but success and good times !!!

Casey and Lindsey, USA, August 2012 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Stephanie and Will, we enjoyed our time here a lot – thanks for all your help and being so kind and friendly ! It’s a beautiful place here and your guesthouse is a gem. Thanks and hope to see you again.

Stefan and Ariane, Germany, July 2012
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Will and Steph, Thank you so much for your hospitality during our stay here in St Lucia ! This is our second trip here and we have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, had plenty of time to relax and get into the Caribbean way of life. Everything was just perfect. Thank you for not just running a guesthouse but for providing a welcoming and friendly environment, complete with ‘holiday replacement’ pets left at home. Your helpful advise and suggestions are invaluable. We hope to visit again in the not too distant future.

 

Mark and Lauren, London, England June 2012 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Have had an amazing time in St Lucia. Been here for one month and it has been unforgettable. We have had an incredible time and are very sad to leave. Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality. Will and Steph have made our stay very comfortable and easy.

Rebecca and Lucy, UK, May 2012
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We have had a super holiday. The Bay Guesthouse is perfectly located and comfortable. We loved the village and our little glimpse of Caribbean life. Thank you again Will and Stephanie

Sue and Cathy, UK, May 2012
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What a great place you have here, excellent to unwind after a very hectic year for us. If you want there is plenty to do, if not, just sit down and enjoy the views of the sunset : this place rocks !!

 

Marcel, Marlies and Chris, Holland, April 2012 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I had the most enjoyable and relaxing time at the Bay Guesthouse. Will and Stephanie (and the dogs) made me feel safe and welcome. It’s a place to escape the rat race of daily life. I’m going back to the UK after a short stay of 5 nights, feeling like I’ve been away double that time. I would love to come back and will recommend to everyone.

Zoe, London, England, April 2012
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Second time being here yet we feel so at home, our little home away from home. A slice of heaven, we’ll always remember St Lucia to be a calm getaway from the real world, where the mind is at rest.

 

Ugo and Steva, Bequia, April 2012

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Highly recommended ! Test the best, forget the rest. Best place since years.

Bobby and Thomas, Germany, April 2012
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you for a wonderful and relaxing holiday! The place is like paradise and excellent for doing absolutely nothing :-)

 

Mira and Anssi, Finland, April 2012

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks for a relaxing time - what more can one want, well looked after, great food and of course the cricket! Nice guesthouse with a 5 star view over the sea.

 

Viviane and Simon, UK, March 2012

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You made our stay smooth and effortless. A lovely guesthouse and the most helpful of owners.

 

Oliver and Fay, UK, March 2012

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This was a gem of a place, the people all great! Wish we could have spent more time. Thank you!

 

Skip and Linda, USA, March 2012

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This place is paradise! The seaview, the hammock, the relaxing atmosphere. A great place to spend a week (or more if we could!) Enjoy!!

 

John and Myretta, Canada, March 2012

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For us the most beautiful location on the island. Will and Stephanie were the greatest hosts we ever had in the West Indies. We don't want to leave but everything come to an end. Hope to come back soon...

 

Renate and Edi, Austria, February 2012

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What a location! Had a great time with my daughter, son out law and grandson. Thanks for making us so welcome. Hope to be back soon with all the family.

 

Gill, France, November 2011

We had a great time! Thank you for making our trip that much better!

 

Mackenzie and Marinanne, USA, August 2011

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We arrived after a week long stay in Soufriere to explore the north of the island and we couldn't have asked for better hosts! Thank you for your specific local knowledge which helped make our stay very rewarding. You have a great spot with a beautiful view - we really enjoyed our stay. Thank you!!

 

Geoff and Tanya, Canada, July 2011

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Enjoyed my stay at your beautiful and relaxing guesthouse. Hope to be able to come again.

 

Sheila, UK, July 2011

Tamara and Florian, Switzerland, July 2011

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A very brief stay after a visit to Soufriere, I look forward to a return visit so I can explore the north of the island. Thank you for the wonderful hammocks, the breeze is wonderful!!!

 

Thom, USA ,June 2011

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you Stephanie and Will for having us in this relax and wonderful place. We liked Duke's BBQ alot and we hope to come back soon!

 

Ben and Nelly, Guadeloupe, June 2011

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks for looking after us Steph and Will. We've had a great time here in Gros Islet, exploring around on Mark's bike rentals (the only way to travel). I think we'll be back, but we'll bring the kids next time.

 

Paul and Rachel, England, June 2011

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is an ideal spot and we feel incredibly lucky to have found it. Will and Steph are living their dream. The world would be a better place if more of us did that. If you want to experience the real Caribbean, stroll into Gros Islet and spend an evening with the locals.

 

Ken and Pandy, UK, May / June 2011

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If only this place and these most wonderful hosts wouldn't have been so amazing - it's way too hard to leave now! :-)
The perfect spot with lots to do and wander in walking distance...
Thank you Will and Stephanie for having me in this magical place of yours. You both were a big part of making my stay as great as it was...
Until next time! :-)

 

Nadja, Germany, May 2011

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The four nights we spent here were amazing. Will and Steph are great folks with one of the best spots to stay on the beach. Thanks to both of them for making us feel so welcome and being so helpful. As luck would have it we 'bumped into' another Canadian couple who we know from home, totally by chance. As much rum punch and piton beer as we could consume carried us to the streets for the weekly Jump Up street party, where dancing in the streets continues to the wee hours of the night.

The Bay Guesthouse will always be recommended to our like minded friends.

 

Jeremy and Marie, BC, Canada, May 2011

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Unfortunately it was just a few days that we spent in this great guesthouse in the heart of the local community. The weather wasn't all that good but we had a marvellous time anyway. Thanks to Stephanie and Will for their hospitality and patience to answer our questions. Back in Holland we will be sure to recommend your place to all our friends. Thanks again.

 

Els and Jan, Holland, May 2011

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Stephanie and Will,

Thank you so much for such a wonderful stay at your guest house. Air fare prices permitting, would love to get back here to stay again sometime. At the very least, we will recommend to friends and family to stay here. Thanks again.

 

Christine and Joshua, United States, March 2011

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Will and Stephanie, 

Your guesthouse was just what we wanted during our visit (March 5 - 9, 2011) and reflected exactly what you advertise.  We enjoyed all the amenities of our room, relaxed each morning and evening on our semi-private patio in addition to "toasting" the end of each day with the most incredible view of the setting sun from the guesthouse!  Your hospitality was spot on and made us feel right at home from the beginning to end.  We also enjoyed the location of the guesthouse being set off of the local scene, but close enough to feel like one of the local Gros Islet residence. We wish both of you much continued success and happiness in your slice of Caribbean "paradise" on St. Lucia!

All the best,

Jim, Jennifer Knight and Jeanette Lee (twin sisters), Maryland, United States, March 2011

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Will and Stephanie,

Thanks for everything. We had a fantastic time and love your home.

Hannah and Noah, USA, February 2011

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Relaxing and peaceful, a few steps from an extremely interesting town, an easy walk to the great Pigeon Island. The guesthouse is in a great location.

 

Tom, Minnesota, USA, October 2010

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What a lovely guest house you own! I have had such a wonderful time and I'm so sad to leave such a beautiful island. Thank you for all your helpful advise.

 

Rachel

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We really enjoyed our 8 days at Bay Guesthouse it was so great to see the sea when opening the door in the morning, to have lunch at the picnic table, listen to the noise of the waves... St Lucians are very nice people, friendly and so helpful when we had a flat tire on our car.

Will and Stéphanie thank you so much for a great and relaxing stay.

 

Elisabeth and Alan, Boston, USA, August 2010

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We spent 10 really wonderful days at Bay Guesthouse, the atmosphere here is really great and besides the usual "small talk holiday friends" we could find real friends here. Will and Steph are really friendly and helped us whenever we needed them. We are gonna miss sitting on the patio having a beer talking to all the guests and playing cards. Lucky us we were here during Carnival and could enjoy it. Thanks for the great time we will never forget it.

 

Lisa and Georg, Tirol, Austria, August 2010

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you for your kindness and all of your help. We had a great time here whilst staying at the guesthouse. The people here are very kind and friendly. The rooms here are well kept and we enjoyed our experience. Thank you kindly.

 

Tiffany and Brian, New Hampshire, United States, July 2010

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What a fantastic place to explore the north of the island from! We had a fabulous - although wet at times - stay at Bay Guesthouse. We loved Gros Islet which is so friendly. Just sorry we missed the Jump Up, also loved Pigeon Island, particularly Jambe de Bois.

Many thanks to Stephanie and Will for their warm welcome.

 

Bridget, Ange, Hugo and Anna, Toulouse, France, July 2010

Stephanie and Will,
On behalf of Gary and I, I just want to say again what a wonderful time we had in St. Lucia. It's truly a beautiful island. I can see why you stayed.
Having a wonderful accommodation was a big plus. The location is great. Idyllic fishing village. Easy access to transport and a variety of great food (local and int'l). Peaceful. Clean. Nice views. Pleasant neighbours.
Keep up the good work.
As Will said on the first night, "it all depends on what you're looking for". Bay Guest House is definitely what we were looking for. A quiet and comfortable place to relax after and between the day's sightseeing.
We would not hesitate to recommend your lodging to others.
I asked my usually talkative husband,  if he wanted me to add any words for him and he said: I am lost for words.
(I should be the speechless one as it was my birthday we celebrated.)

 

Gary & Lesley, Trinidad & Tobago, July 2010

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My five days spent here were truly amazing, I wish I could have stayed longer. the view waking up every morning, the one minute walk to a gorgeous beach, (which you can have to yourself depending on when you go), the friendly locals, and the amazing food in the village are all things that would make me want to come back. Thanks to Will and Stephanie for answering every question I had, letting me borrow the snorkelling equipment and overall very informative and welcoming hosts. Hope to see you again sometime.

 

Julia, Canada, April 2010

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This place is nothing short of SPECTACULAR! Waking up every morning to this beautiful blue ocean. Rising into the surrounding mountains... it's enough to encourage a peaceful serenity in my soul. Thank you so much for this wonderful experience! You guys were more than hospitable - thanks for all the smiles and friendly advise!

 

Laura, USA, April 2010

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have never stayed in a place more peaceful, beautiful and calm - all together!! I had an amazing time strolling the beach every morning with my mom. Will and Stephanie were more like friends. This place is a true gem! I absolutely expect to return someday for more R and R. Will and Stephanie: Thank you for a wonderful time.

 

Chitra, Sundara and Eric, USA, April 2010

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It was another wonderful few days we could spend here. Thank you so much for your hospitality.

Steph and Will - Thank you both so much for helping to make our first visit to St Lucia so wonderful. We love everything about the guesthouse. The atmosphere is casual without being forced, we were able to enjoy the crash of the ocean waves, or silence and also to engage in lovely conversations with other guests on the lqrge communal patio. You set just the right tone. The guesthouse itself was perfect for us. It may not be the Ritz , but the beds were comfortable, the rooms were clean and it had everything we needed. Thank you both! We wish you all the best and continued success with the guesthouse - you deserve it!

 

Anne-Marie and Harry, New York City, April 2010

Steph and Will thank you very much for being the best hosts ever. We enjoyed our stay here immensely. It may not be a 5* hotel, but the service is definitely 5*!

 

Ole and Bortek, Poland / Ireland, March 2010

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We had a wonderful time at your guesthouse, wake up early in the morning and you see the lovely site at the sea and hear the waves. It's a beautiful island and you have a unique place for a guesthouse.

Truly a great holiday! Thank you Will and Steph!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It's all true... Will and Stephanie are lovely hosts, really welcoming and helpful. This must be the best deal in St Lucia, and we're so glad we stumbled upon it (on the internet!). I cant think of anything that would improve the place, and Gros Islet is fantastic, very friendly. St Lucia is great, but thanks to Will and Stephanie for making it really special, and for being so helpful.

 

David and Bryn, Iceland, January 2010

Thank you so much Stephanie and Will for such an amazing holiday here at your beautiful Bay Guesthouse. We very much appreciated your welcome talk advising us of places to eat and see in Gros Islet. Everyone has been so welcoming and friendly, we have been forced to just slow down and relax. seriously considering moving here as the lifestyle is so much more easy going than in London. Of course the beautiful view from thee hammock has helped too! Hope to come here again.

 

Lauren and Mark, UK, April 2009

We especially enjoyed the view from the guesthouse. Thanks for your excellent hospitality Stephanie and Will!

 

Peggy and Richie, Florida, April 2009

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Bay Guesthouse has been a fantastic spot for us to stay over the last 6 weeks. the location on the seafront is absolutely perfect and Gros Islet is an amazing village in which to get a  feel for St Lucia. I must thank Will and Steph for their hospitality and Cynthia for keeping our room in good shape. The communal lounge is a fantastic area in which to meet other guests and sitting in the hammock drinking a Piton while the sun sets is a perfect way to end the day. If we return to St Lucia Bay Guesthouse would certainly be a place I would like to stay at again. Many thanks.

 

Lee, England, March 2009

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is bar none the best budget option on St Lucia. the hosts are wonderful and the guesthouse is incredibly welcoming. Gros Islet is an awesome little town and the people are friendly. St Lucia is a good way to visit the Caribbean without the tourist traps.

 

Patrick and Catalina, Spain and Bolivia, April 2009

Thank you for your hospitality. We had a great time here. Maybe til next time!

We are so glad to spend our holidays at this peaceful place. Stephanie and Will thank you for so much for your friendly help. You were grateful hosts. We enjoyed it to be here.

Andrea and Andreas, Germany, February 2009

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Bay Guesthouse was everything I hoped it would be. Great location, excellent hosts, terrific room with an incredible view. Loved the little town of Gros Islet, a St Lucian town with friendly people and quite a bit going on. Loved finding a shady spot at the beach next-door to hang my hammock and chill. The guests were all a friendly group of individuals, too. So thanks again for making Bay Guesthouse my St Lucian home, Will and Stephanie. I had a wonderful vacation.

 

Susanne, USA, February 2009

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Will and Steph, thank you so much for the relaxing time I have had here at your guesthouse. It was the perfect start to my trip in the Caribbean. The location is great, the view is amazing and the sunset is just beautiful! Of course, you were the perfect hosts - I felt very welcomed. I certainly made use of the hammock but there are loads of other things to do on this little island... Overall, I had a fantastic stay, and I hope to come back one day. I look forward to the Carnival in Trinidad, but I am certainly sad to leave this lovely island of St Lucia!

 

Margaret, Hong Kong, February 2009

Karl and Sigrid, Sweden, January 2009

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Great place to start our St. Lucian vacation. Gros Islet has an authentic St Lucia atmosphere that can't be beat. Hope to find myself writing in this book again some day.

Thanks for the great experience in St Lucia! I am so happy that I got to experience my first time seeing the Ocean here, I couldn't ask for anything better!!

I will never forget this! Thanks so much.

Dora and Laszlo, Hungary, January 2009

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Just what we hoped for! Peaceful, close to the water you hear the ocean all the time. Close to a stroll on the beach early in the morning with goats and horses. Village is just as we'd hoped. Thank you Will and Steph for this pearl - so far away from resort style but still everything you need! Two minutes from everything. Hope to see you again!

 

Marten and Brita, Sweden, December 2008

Will and Steph, thanks so much for the fantastic time I had at your place. I've travelled quite a bit in the Caribbean on this trip and I stayed in a couple of guesthouses,  but yours was without a doubt absolutely the best! A perfect spot on this island, very relaxing, beautiful views, stunning sunsets, I've met so many nice people here, combined with your warm and friendly hospitality, I enjoyed it so much that I had to extend my stay week after week after week... I'll be back for sure!

 

Felicia, Germany, June 2008

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your guesthouse is so nice and welcoming we wished we could have stayed longer. The view is amazing. All of the people that were staying here were so nice. St Lucia is so beautiful. We certainly want to stay here forever. Thank you Steph and Will to an amazing end to our honeymoon. Your hospitality is so refreshing.

 

Abby and Rich, Arcata, CA, USA, May 2008

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Forget all inclusive tourist traps, this is the place to be to experience the real St Lucia. We've experienced so many aspects of St Lucian life thanks to Stephanie and Will's help and guidance. Nothing is too much trouble because they really want you to enjoy your holiday to the full. What a wonderful location, accommodation so close to a real St Lucian fishing village. We cannot thank them enough.

 

Jan, Pam, Marg, London, UK, May 2008

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Bay Guesthouse looked amazing on the website, and I was suspicious that the sunset photo was borrowed it was so good. How fortunate then that this lovely place and its island exceeded my expectations of beauty and charm. Will & Steph, you don't need to be told what an excellent job you're making with this beautiful guesthouse!

 

George and Naomi, London, England, April 2008

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We cannot begin to express our gratitude for Will and Stephanie's warm hospitality!! If it were not for them my fiancé Jim would not have had the perfect proposal for me. The Bay Guesthouse provided the perfect St Lucian experience from a cultural and geographical location. We were able to meet guests from all over, making it able for us to share great stories and experiences. Our time here will never be forgotten. Thanks again to our hosts - we are very grateful for all that you have done for us!

 

Carrie Dale and Jim, North Carolina, USA, April 2008

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Stopped here for 2 weeks of my placement at Victoria Hospital. Couldn't have wished for a more friendly and relaxing start to my time in the Caribbean. Wish I could have stayed for longer. Made to feel very welcome by Steph and Will, the perfect hosts! I definitely made use of the hammock during my stay. Think my favourite thing to do was to swing in it, watching the sun go down with a Piton beer.
Overall a perfect guesthouse, with an incredible view, (which you never get bored of), where you get to meet some great people and experience more of local culture than you would do at other resorts. Just what the doctor ordered!!

 

Rachel, Kenilworth, England, April 2008

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Bay Guesthouse is top!

 

Patrick, London, England, April 2008

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Will and Steph, you are gracious and wonderful hosts! We have loved our two weeks stay at your guesthouse and would highly recommend it to everyone. Great value, beautiful setting. Really like the communal patio for we met some great people who we will keep in touch with. We hope to come back! Sincerely,

 

Karen and Jesse, Victoria BC, Canada, April 2008

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What a beautiful place and such lovely friendly hosts in Stephanie and Will. Had a wonderful time, despite the weather and will take home happy memories of Bay Guesthouse, which made our visit so special.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hey guys! Well that's us home safely, all rested and with happy memories of our stay in St Lucia.

 

We did want to thank you for all your help with the planning of our holiday, from the initial booking stages and keeping us in mind for the Ocean View Studio (I'll miss that view!) to helping us make all of our excursion arrangements (the trip on the Brig Unicorn to the volcano & swimming in the waterfall was our favourite day). We'll definitely keep you in mind for our next trip to the island (and there will be another one day!).
Thanks again & take care.

 

Jake & Stevie, England, February 2008

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We have just spent the last two weeks staying here. Tonight is our last night and we do NOT want to go home!!
This guesthouse is an awesome place to just chill out and do nothing. It's also nice to be away from the touristy areas.
Thanks Steph and Will - you've got such a cool place.

 

Vicki, New Zealand and Dilan, Wales, February 2008

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi W & S,
Just a quick note to say how much Polly and I enjoyed our holiday at Bay Guest House. It was fantastic. Location really great and it was so nice to come back after a day in the sun, have a cool shower and a couple of beers or gin and tonics. We met Patricia and Simon too who we will stay in touch with, so it was great.
We were sad to leave and I am now in my office in London typing this email!
At least it is quite bright and not raining!
Anyway, thanks once again for your hospitality and if we visit St Lucia again I'm sure we will come to you guys.

 

Duncan and Polly, Essex, UK, January 2008

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Steph and Will,
Thank you for a wonderful time. You both were very friendly and hospitable. The views were spectacular and very relaxing in the evenings. Your recommendations were excellent. Overall, the guesthouse is in an amazing location near the beach, a Friday night street party, plenty of foods and bars and best of all near the bus system! Thank you for a wonderful stay in St Lucia!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for the hospitality at the Bay. I really enjoyed just chilling out after a hectic month of research and 'sand investigation'!
The Bay is a great location and the views I experienced were truly awesome. Missing the Piton beer and the view of Pigeon Island whilst eating breakfast.
I very much look forward to returning to St. Lucia and exploring once again.
Keep Well

Teddy, Sheffield, England, September 2007

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Will and Steph it's been amazing, it's so refreshing to see people not in it for the money providing this for financially challenged guests. We've had an amazing, amazing, amazing time!
Thank you for a fantastic location and perfect surroundings for our holiday. We couldn't have asked for more. All the best to you both.

 

Duncan, Matt, Will and Mike, England, September, 2007

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi Will & Stephanie,
Just a quick e-mail to say home safe and just to thank you once again for your fantastic hospitality! – I had a really amazing time in St Lucia and that has a lot to do with where we were staying!

Keep up the good work Will and Steph!

 

Vicki and Mark, Brighton, England June 2007

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A big thank you for letting us stay here at Bay Guesthouse. We love Gros Islet and had a fab time!
Very sad to be going home today but we have lots of great memories of BBQ chicken, Piton lager, spiced rum, beautiful sunshine and snorkelling with lovely bright coloured fish! Woo!!

 

Dave and Isi, Birmingham, England, June 2007

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you Will and Steph - your beautiful St Lucian Guest House is befitting of the St Lucia way, welcoming, helpful and full of smiles... Going home tomorrow to save up and return ASAP...

Hi guys,
Thanks for a wonderful 5 days in your guesthouse.  The location was perfect and the sunsets hard to beat!  We already miss enjoying our cold Pitons in the hammock!  You have such a peaceful setting and a great location for adventuring about the island!  Love your place and hope to return one day.  Best of luck to the both of you!

John and Josette, York, UK, March 2007

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We all came to watch the cricket it's true
with the warm Saint Lucia sun and skies of blue
enjoyed the seafood washed down with Piton beer
but most of all glad we stayed here

The cricket was great England won twice
We celebrated at Tilly's with fish and rice
Ronie took us out over the island to explore
but most of all, Will and Steph we all adore

The big surprise was taking Will to the cricket
where we spent all our time explaining how you get a wicket
Now its time to return home and shed a tear
but most of all glad we stayed here

Dear Will & Stephanie,
Tere and I had a wonderful vacation and Bay Guesthouse was a big part of it. We couldn't imagine having as nice a time locked away in a "resort". Sitting on the porch, lying in a hammock, floating in the warm water, watching the sunsets - it was all perfect.

Thanks for the experience.

 

Dan & Tere, Connecticut, USA, February 2007

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We had a wonderful 16 days here. Thank you Steph and Will for all your help and suggestions.

Had a top time at a top place. Cant think of anything that would make Bay Guesthouse any better. Steph and Will arrange everything you could ever want. I hiked up Gros Piton which was a great day. Felt totally relaxed and at home here in Gros Islet. I will remember it fondly.

Dear Will and Steph,
We arrived here completely exhausted from our exams and after some days and a few Pitons we recovered completely. This place must be paradise. We enjoyed our room very much and we would like to come back to this outstanding place. Thanks for everything!

We had a wonderful and relaxing stay here and would like to thank Steph and Will. Our 14 nights at the Guesthouse gave us the relaxation we greatly needed. Everything about this place cant be improved upon, the view the facilities in the room.

Hi Steph and Will,

 

Just to say a big thank you.  Jodi and I had a wonderful 3 week holiday at Bay.  It was so hard to leave there yesterday and can't believe we are now back in London - although the sun is shining here.

 

You have a lovely place there in Gros Islet and it's an ideal setting and location - will certainly recommend Bay to our friends for when they get around to visiting St. Lucia.

 

We'll be back at sometime in the near future and once again a big thank you from myself, Jodi, Steph and Rhys.

 

With very best wishes.

What an amazing place you have it is more lovely than the photo's.
Your hospitality without being overbearing like some places was appreciated and enjoyed to the max. (...)

I have told everyone about it and will be back next year same time - wish it could be sooner but more Islands to visit. (...)

 

Jane, UK, May 2006

Just to say thank you for a fantastic stay at The Bay Guest House! I will recommend you to all my friends with confidence. (...)
See you next year.

Hello Will and Steph, 

We just wanted to mention that our stay at your guesthouse was a wonderful and unforgettable experience. Finally a place that keeps up to its promises. Keep up the good work! And maybe see you again!

Wherever I walk today I have constantly the sight of the white beach with the turquoise coloured sea and Pigeon Island in the background hanging as a backdrop.

Thanks for everything

Hi Stephanie and Will,
 

We had a wonderful time at your place . You have a beautiful and peaceful spot, and we will definitely recommend it to anyone we know is going to St. Lucia.

Dear Will and Steph.

The Norwegian sisters are now together again, in Lill's home and we are on a trip down memory lane. We have just seen photos from St. Lucia and really wanna go back to our home away from home,- the orange house at the beach!!!!

Miss you, the hammock, the rum, the sun and we could go on and on. And of course we have this unfinished business in Rodney Bay. Guess you remember that boat trip on Unicorn that never got real. By the way THANK YOU so much for reminding us to catch that plane. Amazing how relaxed we managed to get!!!!! And to everybody who might think about going to St. Lucia and don't know where to stay,- THIS IS IT!!!!!! Trust us. But remember to tell Will and Steph to remind you to get on your plane back home. It is so easy to forget.....

Hope to see you next year!
