    The greatest feeling is when you reach Glanvillia and your eye catch the majestic Morne aux Diables imposing its raw beauty. Then you gaze at the yachts bobbing on the tranqil waters of the Caribbean Sea and in the distance waits the twin Cabrits sitting right where you left it , inviting you to come to Possie, the p lace to be.Toneh!

    Highly recommended! I had the privilege of spending a night there last year and it was awesome. The service is excellent. Very friendly staff, reliable shuttle service to take you to and from main road, serene view, and not forgetting the punch, quite tantalizing. I will definitely refer your
    Establishment to others, and i will be back upon my return, by the grace of the Almighty.

    DNO you do not have to print this it is just a message to you and is no real big thing but everytime you write and you do not use the U in certain words ,for example,color,flavor,then you are using american computers and american lingo,this is not how they teach our children in school to spell these words,when doing your spelling review just keep in mind that sometimes wrong is right.

      You are quite correct. We follow the British system of spelling. We put the U in words like colour, neighbor etc.

    Congratulations!!!!!! :) :-D :lol: 8)

    Here’s wishing you many, many more positive successful years of operation in what I as a British born and bred, reckon is the most scenic, exotic and inviting area on your island!

    Love it love it love and the next time I’m back will be with a group of friends and family. I had to keep pinching myself by the magnitude of abundant friendliness for the most part by locals towards visiting.

    Ever so eager to point out directions and instructions when trying to find somewhere locally which is so inviting and made me feel so comfortable.

    I just love that beautiful City of Portsmouth or as the locals kept reminding me when we chatted by using the name “Possie.” :lol:

    Can’t wait to get back to swim on the gorgeous, tranquil, calm beaches and yes, the lovely rivers as well, I so enjoyed sitting in those huge basins of refreshing water washing over my skin. Absolutely highly recommended that’s for sure. :)

      keep coming back we have so much more to offer
      again thank you.

    Well deserved. The management know all about customer service and Deliver. Other establishments on the island could learn a lot from De Champs. 8)

    Also, take note that Mermaid’s Secret Riverside Retreat on the Newfoundland Estate in Rosalie has also just received EXACTLY the same award from Trip Advisor so big up to them also.
