This small wooden eco cabin is perched high on a cliff with breathtaking views over the Caribbean sea and West Coast of Saint Lucia. With everything you need, our cabin is built by local craftsmen in the traditional village style amid coastal forest in a protected area rich in birds, plants and wildlife. Fittings and furnishings have been created from recycled or natural elements and the Hangout is surrounded by a vibrant tropical garden.
Built entirely of wood by local artisans, we have also upcycled many objects and materials to furnish the cabin which gives it a unique character. As passionate environmentalists the cabin reflects our deep commitment to minimalist living and gives you a chance to experience this for yourselves. With an amazing view from the large terrace over the neighbouring coastline and the tops of the trees, you can see the birds and butterflies feeding at the same height as your sunlounger! The two sets of double doors open to create a completely open view and the modest but tasteful living space incorporates a standard double bed with mosquito net, kitchen area with gas hob and stove and a small bathroom with WC and hand basin. On a second deck below the main terrace is a private shower accessed by a short flight of steps and this deck also has a drying area for washing or wet towels as well as a small barbecue. The Hangout has its own access to the parking area through a small wooden gate in the fence of the property. A family of three black labradors lives with us on the property so dog lovers are especially welcome! We also have a family of goats which help us to keep the grass down along the roadside!
The Hummingbird Hangout belongs to the Treehouse which is the only house down a no through road so it is very safe and quiet. We are creating a natural conservation area along the cliffside and on the land above the Treehouse and pesticides or insecticides are never used here. This means we have very few mosquitoes since there are many birds, lizards and frogs to eat them as well as our network of 17 garden ponds full of fish which keep the mosquito population low.
If you like fish then Pablo can ring the local fishermen and they will tell you when they bring ashore a fish you would like! We also make homemade icecreams from local fruits like mango, soursop, tamarind, papaya and other flavours like coffee and chocolate (also from the island) which we leave in a freezer for you to help yourself - we just charge a small fee to cover ingredients which we ask you to settle before you leave. We can also provide you with a beer crate at the local price, especially for those visitors who are on foot.
Fifteen minutes walk down the private road will bring you to a small secluded cove where you can swim or snorkel among coral reefs. In twenty minutes you will be down in Marigot Bay with its cafes, restaurants and marina life, bank, minimarket and ATM.
Although many of our guests walk, we recommend hiring a small 4x4 jeep unless you really like walking. We have a small jeep available which we only hire to our private guests. Please contact us for details if you are interested. We also have a single folding bed which can be used when required.
Access is simple through a small gate in the Treehouse fence. There are a few steps down to the Hangout itself and a flight of steps leading to the lower deck with the shower and drying area.

We live in the upper half of the Treehouse which is a house located higher up the property than the Hangout and will be here to help you if required during your stay.
Другие важные подробности
We like to work with local people to ensure that they are given the opportunity to transmit to visitors their passion for this beautiful island. We have developed a series of tours with our local friendly taxi driver, Anthony, and Sava the local water taxi captain. These tours have been developed only for our guests and we can send the list to you as soon as you have booked. We also provide an information sheet with our own personal recommendations on what to see and where to eat or drink which may be useful to you as a general guide.
Please treat our property with the respect you would give your own.
