The room was great. The house was great. The food (breakfast) was great. I felt very much at home. The accommodation is not on the main street. Its about a 8-10 minute walk into town which is no big deal. I would recommend this accommodation.

We had a great time at Maputaland. We stayed there for 2 nights. The guesthouse is very close to the beach and the main road of St. Lucia. The owners are really friendly and helped us out to make sure we had a great time in St. Lucia! The breakfast was also very good. We definitly recommend this guesthouse and... More

Our family of 8 had a very nice experience. Peter and Gisela were marvelous hosts, providing great suggestions on things to do and see. The property, as well as the town of St. Lucia were charming. We would definitely make a return visit.

I stayed here during a busy long weekend in August 2013. I had booked online, but when I arrived there had been a double booking of sorts. St Lucia was very busy that weekend but the hosts found me a place to stay at another guest house for the friday and welcomed me back for the saturday night which was... More

A fantastic place to stay. A great family atmosphere. The hosts, Peter and Gisela were inviting and helpful at providing useful information about the area. They were particularly welcoming to our three children aged 8, 11 & 14 and made them feel at ease. The breakfasts, both cold and cooked were excellent, as was the never ending coffee supply. Relaxing... More

Traveling with a professional tour company, our stop in St. Lucia included 2 nights at Maputaland. Our group of 7 sat comfortably in the large and well furnished dining room. Lots of art and personal collections of the owners all around. Food was excellent and plentiful. Rooms were comfortable, and our group enjoyed visiting with the owners on the large... More

As we looked forward to a holiday in St Lucia where we have never been, we were so disappointed in the accommodation at Maputaland. It barely complies to the standard of a two star Bed and Breakfast. As the comment below, I cannot fault the owners but overall it was NOT a pleasant experience and we left earlier than expected.... More

We have visited many guest houses in South Africa and consider we can give a reasonable objective judgement on where we have stayed. The only thing about this place that was 4 star were the owners who could not be faulted for their help advice and hospitality. We assume the rating was done when the guest house first opened as...

Maputaland B&B is a fantastic place to stay when in St Lucia. Although we did not have a booking, we were lucky and they had a room for us - we stayed there for 3 nights. We got a buffalo room that is really nice and cozy, you can feel the personal touch in the smallest things. The bathroom was... More

Gisela and Peter went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. They made bookings for us and gave us very useful tips which helped us plan our short stay so that we got the most out of it.
