Property info

Whalesong Guest House is your home away from home. Kick off your shoes and relax on the terrace under the stars. Our aim is that you leave with wonderful memories and having met as strangers we leave as friends.

Neighborhood info

St. Lucia is particularly special in that our hippo population share the town with us! In the evenings, the hippos that live in our estuary begin roaming the residential areas in search of food. They will spend the entire night looking for scrumptious grass to graze and head back to their watery home just before daybreak. For this reason, we advise our guests to please drive to and from your dinner and entertainment after dark.
