I am Lorraine. I moved to St. Lucia from the US in 1995. Originally from New York, I have been fortunate enough to reside in San Francisco, Atlanta and Seattle prior to relocating to beautiful St. Lucia.
Presently, I live in the most charming community of Mamiku on the East Coast of this exotic island.
The people are very warm and welcoming to all of my guests. It is very quiet and peaceful here not a lot of nighttime activities other than enjoying the sweet sounds of nature.
I look forward to greeting you upon arrival with my friendly rescued dogs Lexi, Brown Dog and Rocky.
