Difficult to put in words how fabulous this place is. The open air living space with kitchen, complete with hanging bed and plunge pool seems like something from a movie set. The spacious air conditioned sleeping area with a king size canopied poster bed was perfect. The beach is just a few steps through the palm trees. Ah, the Beach. Usually deserted except for the occasional locals walking by, mostly on the weekends.
All things being equal, this guest house outshines anything comparable, even though there isn't anything close. What makes the Tree House so special are Jan and Tony, your hosts. They are what made our stay as great as it was. Living on the grounds, they are always available for any requests. They know everything and everyone you may need. Everything from a ride from the airport, rides to the supermarket, shuttle into town, Tony was more than accommodating. They have contacts for guided tours.
A real highlight was when Tony arranged for a local fisherman (Lincar) to cook us a grilled lobster dinner with all local side dishes. And he cleaned the kitchen!!
Another thing that makes this couple great is their love of dogs (as we are). They are heavily involved with the Island dog rescue efforts.
I can only say if you're trying to avoid the usual island crowds (condos, cruise ships, etc.) this is without a doubt your best option. We have every intention of returning.
This tree house is absolutely stunning. There is a plunge pool, your own private sunbathing deck, a suspended bed/sofa, the décor is stylish and really works with the tree house. There is plenty of room and being so comfortable you could quite happily spend your holiday hidden away from the world, however there is also so much to see in Laborie and the beach being on your door step it is truly paradise on earth. Jan and Tony are very welcoming and this is our second trip to them, we are already looking at booking our third!
Frankly I cannot add to the superb reviews and descriptions already made. If you think they are over the top or inaccurate then go and see for yourself. The Treehouse is certainly a unique place. Tony is adding a breakfast bar to his main Mango Splash area and when that is done it will be great. Tony and Jan are two of the nicest people we have met who will do everything to make your stay perfect especially with local knowledge. Had the previledge of meeting their dogs and just loved Foxy who visited us often. We loved her and miss her as much as our wonderful stay here.
My husband and I have been going to St Lucia every year for 25 years and have stayed in many resorts on the island. We had never been to Laborie and decided to find something special and secluded for our 30th anniversary. When I saw Bay Treehouse I knew this was the place. We spent a wonderful week in this amazing treehouse! The owners Tony and Jan were so helpful and friendly from start to finish. They made wonderful suggestions of things to do and restaurants to eat in. What ever you need they are always willing to help. Everyone in Laborie was so friendly and nice. The treehouse is on a quiet calm beach, so relaxing. We felt like we were on Gilligan's island and we never wanted to leave!!!
