If someone wanted to organize a small dialysis group to visit St. Lucia we would be willing to include accommodation.  A few photos of the house can be seen here.  The house is located next to the hospital.

A minimum of 3 dialysis would be require to include the house.

Guess I should have mentioned that.  The cost per dialysis treatment is $320 US per session.

Basically, the cost would involve flight and dialysis. 

There are 3 bedrooms (with air).  There wouyld be no cost for the house if a group containing 3 dialysis patients came at trhe same time for a minimum of 1 week.

The house typically rents for $900 US /week

Ontario residents will get back $215 CDN per treatment.  We supply that paperwork, you just have to mail it.

There is a beach about 200 feet away.  Castries (the capital) is about 1 mile away.  There is a bus to downtown every 1/2 hour.

Tapion reef is located at the entrance to Castires Harbour, the cruise ship go by the front door.  Bring a 9 iron you can target practice :)
