OUR HONEYMOON DELIGHT!: Banana Cottage at Nature’s Paradise was the highlight of our honeymoon in St Lucia; it far exceeded our expectations. If you like escaping everybody else, enjoy local food and adventure it will be your kind of place. It was definitely our kind of place... the cottage were clean and very spacious. Dave and Wanda pointed us in the right direction for adventure (sailing, snorkelling, kayaking, treks to waterfalls). They were extremely helpful and hospitable hosts. The swimming pool, Wanda's 'tropical gardens' and amazing views to compete meant it was easy to spend days just lazing around drinking rum punches. Best piece of advice if staying here is rent a jeep - you'll need it for the exciting drive up to the Cottage and it is then easy to explore St. Lucia’s sights.

OUR FIRST ANNIVERSARY! : My wife & I just celebrated our 1yr anniversary at Avocado Cottage - it was perfect. If your looking for secluded yet spectacular accommodations at reasonable pricing, this is it. Nature's Paradise is a hill top B&B above the prettiest bay in St. Lucia. We had one of the 2 cottages to ourselves for one week (private decks overlooking the coast-the photos don’t lie) and were treated to a wonderful and relaxing breakfast each morning. Morning swims surrounded by their beautiful, lush tropical gardens, it was the perfect place to 'escape'. Dave is a wealth of island information and even provides personal tours of the island- we did one and it was great. You will need to rent a jeep to get around, after all, you are on a volcano bed and it is rough terrain. Nature's Paradise provided us with the ideal setting to experience the beauty of the Caribbean and the treasures that St. Lucia has to offer. We would stay at Nature's Paradise again in a heartbeat.

OUR ROMANTIC PARADISE: We arrived expecting a romantic, tropical paradise, with a touch of adventure, and Nature's Paradise gave us all this, & more. David & Wanda are perfect hosts providing exceptional accommodation in 2 cottages, fabulous breakfasts in the Main House & a wealth of helpful advice. Wanda's gardens which are a credit to her work & imagination. The adventure came with every trip we took in the jeep to nearby Marigot Bay, the most stunning part of St Lucia. Nature's Paradise is an ideal base from which to explore the islands stunning scenery & beautiful beaches. Highlights included waterfalls, botanical gardens, tropical rain forests & the volcano!
It was Nature's Paradise that made our stay all the more memorable and it is without question the best accommodation we have stayed in.

Guestbook comments from the owner
The location high above Marigot Bay surrounded by nature and Wanda and David's hospitality is truly breath taking. Our cottage was comfortable and well equipped. For a couple living in the heart of the city, the sounds and silence of the tropics are absolutely delightful as is the lush tropical growth. We enjoyed the suggested restaurants particularly brunch on the porch of a colonial plantation house. Our trip to Soufriere with David was wonderful as was the dip in the remote warm springs. We also rented a 4 wheel drive vehicle to explore the island. We learned much about the tropical growth and flowers on this trip as well as life and culture of the island. Wanda's island breakfast's are perfect and the bananas from their own trees a particular treat. David's recommendations are always on target and the people of St. Lucia welcoming and helpful. Yes, Nature's Paradise is a unique adventure and you would be fortunate to share it.
