About Doris Jolicoeur & Donald Summers
We are Canadian Expats residing in St Lucia. We are both military veterans of 20+ years and retired Real Estate Agents from Alberta. We have 3 dogs, Dude, Axel, and Moma. They live in the upstairs suite with us and there is zero need for you to ever encounter them as the stairs to the unit is a fair distance from the furthest point they can reach. We love to host travellers and tell them all about this beautiful island and all its sights and sounds.
Doris Jolicoeur & Donald Summers purchased this Apartment in 2015
Why Doris Jolicoeur & Donald Summers chose Castries City
Our property is in a great location. No real need for a car as there's a shuttle that operates from Tapion Hospital (250 m away) to down town Castries where you can grab any other transportation required and/or hop onto an excursion/tour. We also have a small beach (Tapion Beach) within 200 m from the house or you can visit La Toc Beach (Sandals) which is about a 25 minute walk or a short ride away. If you choose to rent a car, our location gives you great access to all the natural attractions about 30-45 minutes south of us or the touristy areas and street parties about 20 minutes north.

Best vacation experience
Don and Doris were amazing! I couldn’t asked for a better place to stay.
Don and Doris are the best!!!
This is a great place to stay. Super friendly owners. They stock the fridge with groceries, deliver fresh mangoes to your door and give you a local cell phone to use. The accommodations were better than we expected and it had everything we needed including soap and sunscreen. I'd give more stars if I could!!!
We enjoyed our stay in Castries. Doris & Don are great hosts. They help with anything you need. Saint Lucia is easy to get around by local bus or taxi. We enjoyed sitting on our patio watching the cruise ships come & go or the airplanes coming in for a landing.
Our unit was well equipped for meals in and really enjoyed the charcoal BBQ. The fresh mango's off the tree in the yard was a special treat.
We enjoyed the Pink Plantation Restaurant up the hill for the food & the VIEW! Would recommend a day trip to Rodney Bay and have lunch at the Golden Dove. It's a local spot on the beach near the yacht club. They have delicious wraps. Plus,go have a pint, overlooking the sea, at the Antillia Craft Brewery in Seraphine.
Saint Lucia is a wonderful place with nice people and easy to see all the sights!

Exceptional hosts, well priced accommodations.
Don and Doris frequently included us in their trips to the beach and grocery shopping. Doris spend a good part of a day showing us and their other guests some of the local attractions. Don likes to share his knowledge of the history of the island with their guests. They were very attentive hosts and went above and beyond our expectations.
Our hosts Don and Doris have been and continue to be exemplary hosts. They have seen to our every need and have catered for all our basic needs.
From our first day on the island, Don and Doris have exuded warm, inviting manner, enabling us to settle quickly into the accommodation. They are extremely helpful in providing useful and relevant information about places to visit on the island, details of local bus and taxi services, and much, much more.
The accommodation overlooks a mature garden of advocado, papaya, mango and coconut trees. Inside the rooms are cool especially when temperatures are very warm outside. The accommodation meets all your creature comforts and ideal for entertaining. From the veranda the Tapion beach/bay can be viewed, which provides a wonderfully peaceful and tranquil atmosphere of the area in general.
Private, comfortable and very well provisioned.
Friendly, welcoming, helpful hosts. The amenities and well stocked kitchen with provisions far exceeded expectations! Hosts greeted us with refreshments, helped with luggage and oriented us to suite and surroundings. They also cooked a wonderful evening BBQ meal and another day invited us to join them at one of their favourite dining spots.
The suite is located close to Castries which provides amenities. Shuttle to downtown handy. Bus service to Rodney Bay frequent and rapid. A rental car is required if you want to explore more of St. Lucia on your time schedule. Taxis and hired drivers have exorbitant rates.
