We enjoyed our stay at the Santa Lucia guest house so much! Rika and François gave us excellent advice and helped us a lot, they even packed a great breakfast for the 5 of us. We felt completely at home in their very pleasant house. If we return to that part of South Africa, they will be number one on... More

We stayed for one night on business. The room is adequately equipped, but old. The bathroom is very small. The couple are hospitable and the breakfast is exceptionally good. The guest house has a very central location.

The first stop after flying in from London, Santa Lucia guesthouse epitomised South African hospitality. Beautiful breakfast, amazing house and great location. The rooms are all part of a grand property making you feel at home withOut losing a sense of privacy. The family that run the B&B is really what makes this place the way it is. Originally a... More

We stayed 2 nights at Santa Lucia Guest House and were warmly welcomed by our hostess, Martie. She went out of her way to assist us and recommended the Hippo & Croc boat cruise, but also the drive up to Cape Vidal which was a fantastic beginning to sighting the wild animals in a beautiful game park. The breakfasts were... More

From your first welcome to your last goodbye the treatment is warm, welcoming and genuine - and nothing is too much trouble. If you are visiting the St Lucia area this should... More

We were provided with recommendations and maps for what to do and where to eat, and even given an umbrella, beach chairs and a cooler bag to make our visit... More
