Stayed two nights in a family room and wish it had been for longer. The property is very well kept and the owners, Hettie and Derick couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good, WiFi a little patchy in our room. Parking is easy. The pool is just about big enough for a quick swim. Located on a...

We were very happy with our stay here as the owners go out of their way to make it enjoyable and are pleased to offer advice on restaurants in the area, places to visit, directions etc. They will even provide a packed breakfast for...

Hettie and Derick did everything they could to make me feel comfortable, going out of their way multiple times to make sure I had everything I needed. I was only there for a short time but would love to come back!

Wonderful location. Helpful welcoming non interfering hosts. Very useful advice when sought. It was a really lovely touch to come out to a washed car every morning especially after driving on gravel in game parks each day. Breakfasts were great. Some of the extras like snorkeling gear, beach towels and a cooler box were very practical and useful.

We stayed at this place for 2 days. French speaking owner welcomed us outside saying our name (very personal and appreciated reception!). The place is clean and charming, pleasant to be in. We had our breakfast on the upper terrace, very comfortable and nice! Highly recommended place for your holidays !

We had two rooms which were both very comfortable, spotlessly clean with nice attention to detail too. The majestic wooden furniture is brought to life by the bright rooms with views onto the gorgeous gardens. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful - they are what makes the place special! Good breakfasts too. For the day we had an early...

We had a very beautiful room with a 4 poster bed, with all the comforts needed. The surroundings were lush and tropical, the pool beautiful and inviting, a really great breakfast. Last but not least was the caring host who was full of recommendations and attentiveness, and we even got our car washed !

Colin your host provides a level of service more than ten times better than five star hotels. The place is spotlessly clean, the rooms are beautiful, and the whole experience is really very special. My highest recommendation. I could have stayed in the beautifully decorated comfortable lounge for a week - alas my stay wasn't that long. An example, on...

Over many years travelling around South Africa, this was one of the very best guest houses at which I have stayed. Colin could not have been more friendly and helpful and the breakfast was truly excellent! Very nice swimming pool as well.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled in the midst of an exceptional World Heritage Site, St Lucia Wetlands Guest House is the ideal destination for those travelers looking to find tranquility and comfort whilst exploring the magical beach, estuary, and game parks around us. Our guest experience begins with welcoming drinks and a comprehensive orientation of the area. Highlights amongst the many activities in St Lucia and the surrounding areas include a sunset boat cruise down the estuary, featuring an abundance of hippos, crocodiles, and bird life; a day-trip through South Africa's first World Heritage Site, a "Big Four" game park known as the iSimangaliso Wetland Park; and of course our beautiful beaches along the Indian Ocean in St Lucia and at the renowned Cape Vidal. At the house, our guests find a dedicated team committed to providing an excellent experience for each and every guest, all the while allowing them privacy and exclusive use of the house, its balconies and patios, lounge, pool and garden. We take pride in our full breakfast, served daily, with options for every visitor's tastes. Indeed, South African hospitality at its best. ... more   less
