Don & Doris are probably the best hosts and run the best place we've ever holidayed at. We found Tapion House suite to be large, airey, and with a large patio overlooking the nearby quiet Tapion Cove beach. This beach is a mere couple of minutes walk down the road. We found the refridgerator to be stocked with sufficient food...

Don and Doris are two of the loveliest hosts. Myself and a friend went out to visit a friend for 2 weeks and were made to feel welcome from day one. The first thing I noticed was that apartment was light, open, airy and colourful! All the things you'd expect when in St Lucia. Both bedrooms had incredible air-con which...

Thank you Don and Doris for hosting me! The apartment was spotlessly clean, well stocked and I didn't need to buy anything except food and sunblock during my stay! The excellent air conditioning and great neighbourhood so close to a beach was perfect. As a medical student, this would be the place to stay as it's so close to both...

About the neighbourhood
Tapion is a 3 street suburb of Castries located a 8 minute drive to the center of downtown. It overlooks the Castries Harbour and the Caribbean Sea. The Royal St Lucia Police Academy is directly across the street from Tapion House and makes our area very safe and friendly. Tapion Hospital is a 2 minute walk from Tapion House and has a lovely cafe with a stunning view over the Caribbean Sea.
Getting around
Mini buses are the most affordable means of public transport and we can certainly help you learn the system. Taxis are as efficient, but can cost significantly more. A rental car gives tremendous flexibility, but can be quite expensive.

We can assist with arranging a rental car on an ad hoc basis, that is, renting for a day or two here and there, but not for the entirety of your trip. This will save money and still allow an easy way to travel the entirety of the island.

For those considering a car rental, an International Drivers' Licence is strongly recommended.
Car not needed
