Who is Guismo?

Guismo is the most famous dog of St Barts. The island Dog!
He was a homeless dog, found on the streets of Portugal by Marinka.
They fell in love at first sight when they met in 2005
and there were no doubts for Marinka to take Guismo with her back to Paris.
After several years in Paris, they decided to move to St Barth
to create their own personal sunny retreat.

She is the Vet assistant of Oasis’s Center Veterinarian clinic since 2012.

  1. Fantastic service and total confidence in care.

    Marinka has been taking care of my four-legged child for almost four years. Whenever I must leave the island or whenever my dog needs some additional “active” time, I call upon Auntie Marinka and he has the BEST time! Always excited to see her, and always perfectly content after his visit, I have the utmost faith and trust in Marinka & Guismo to take care of my little buddy. I highly recommend Guismo and Friends.

  2. Our Doodle Wiggles with Delight

    Our GoldenDoodle Cooper wiggles with sheer delight at the sight of Marinka. And returns from his nature walks with Guismo’s gang so contented — and thankfully tired. On St Barth is can be hard to give dogs the great exercise and doggie socialization they need, and we’re thrilled to have Marinka help with that. Her training and experience as a veterinary nurse adds that much more to our confidence that our pup is in caring, competent and reliable hands. Thank you Marinka!
