The house is located on the main street that runs along the sea. Many homes are owned and occupied by local fishermen and their families who are happy to share their knowledge of the island with visitors. There are lots of children, dogs and the occasional rooster in the neighborhood.
There are public transports available in the village (approx. 3 minute walk from the house) to surrounding villages/points of interest. There are also numerous private taxis available for hire in the village. There is parking available for rented cars near the house. Taxis are available at the airport (intl. airport in Vieux Fort is approx. 15 min. away).
There are many areas of interest near Laborie, including Morne Le Blan (hiking), Balanbush (old sugar plantation), sulpher springs in Soufriere, and snorkeling at the Pitons. Fishing and other outings with locals can be arranged.
Guests have access to the entire house.
My sister is available to assist guests, as I am no longer living in St. Lucia. I also have two brothers who live on the same street and can help with any questions. My brothers also have boats and can take you out fishing or on snorkeling outings to the base of the Pitons where there is a marine nature preserve.
Laborie hosts a monthly "fish fry" with music, food and entertainment the last Friday of each month.
No smoking in the house and no pets allowed. PLEASE DO NOT FEED THE STRAY CATS/DOGS, ETC. IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD.
Please leave the house as you found it.
Please be sure to clean the kitchen/wash dishes daily, as food left out will attract ants. If you would like someone to come and clean for you, please let me know and I can arrange this for an additional fee.
The house is in a neighborhood with families and children - please respect the neighbors, i.e. no loud parties, please.
I was born and raised in the village of Laborie, St. Lucia, just across the street from the house I've listed! I worked as a fisherman and sea moss farmer/cultivator/processor in St. Lucia for over 20 years. I re-located to Madison, WI (U.S.A.) in 2004 but have maintained my home in Laborie. My family (wife and four sons) and I go back yearly to keep in touch with relatives there. I put an addition on the house last year, and am looking forward to having guests enjoy the sea and community that I grew up in. I have brothers and sisters in Laborie who can help with any questions about the island and can arrange fishing and snorkeling tours. I love talking with people and am excited about sharing a real Caribbean experience with my guests!
