An amazing guesthouse, you would omly expect in the mondaine area of Capetown, we found in this seaforest environment of St Lucia. Thinking of safari's in the wetlands and watching whales (that weren't there in this season) we fell for the name Serene Estate. Fortunately a room was available; the smallest. When we arrived at Hornbill street, we found a... More

An amazing contemporary guest house with high quality bathrooms and fittings. The breakfasts were way above anything else we experienced on our trip - a fruit cocktail to start and then beautifully prepared fresh fruit, fresh bread, cold meats and eggs cooked to your choice. A lovely place that we wanted to stay longer but they were fully booked! Book... More

The peaceful location is delightful. We stayed in the top room which is very large, stylish and well-equipped. The design, furnishings and art are impressive. The garden and pool area are lovely. In the morning several mongoose played in the parkland at the edge of the garden and even ventured into the garden while we were there. Monkeys and small... More

The guesthouse is located off the main road and thus very quiet and peace ful. The location is good: it takes a few minutes by car and approx. 10 - 15 minutes by foot to get to the main street of St. Lucia. At night however beware of the hippos on the streets. They are large, dark and do not... More

This modern guest house is really comfortable and peaceful. The rooms are very spacious and a lot of attention has been paid to all kind of details in surprising architecture (see photo, coloured windows are amazing!) and good facilities: bath tub and separate shower, big tv set, wifi, very good beds. This makes for a luxurious stay. Breakfast is delicious!... More

Friendly people, excellent food and 5 star accommodation. Unfortunately the wi-fi internet didn't connect but there was also a 2nd Wi-Fi available that I had to pay for online. There also was no bath plug. I must say I didn't complain at that stage but can be 100% sure they would have fix it.

I have visited the little village of St Lucia many times and have stayed in almost every accommodation but did not expect this level of luxury and surprising modernity. Wonderful avant garde architecture that is situated flush up against the bush that surprisingly does not clash but is a lovely contrast. Rooms are probably the most spacious I have encountered...

Exceptionally furnished and large rooms in a beautiful location. Staff very friendly. Breakfast was "looking good", but not the typical SA buffet or hot meal with eggs not according to order on both days we stayed there. Will definitely stay there again, although it probably is the most expensive of all B&B's in town.

Lovely place. Great architecture and nice to chill out in a lounge that felt like home. Excellent breakfast that keeps one going until tea time. Also the host called us over to see a hippo 20m behind the house :-)

It was our Honeymoon (we come from Paris) St Lucia is the perfect spot for such an occasion. We were off the Kruger Park and already experienced a luxury lodge safari theme style. So we wanted something different and found out Serene. The place is absolutely fabulous, we had the gigantic Blue Room, all modern, the furniture are all made... More
