We spent 3 days in Santa Lucia which would certainly not have been so special without Rika and François : we felt at home or, more precisely, at our grand-parents’home ! Location (walking distance to shops and restaurants in main street) and comfort of the house, of course, but much more : the global atmosphere of it, the way it... More

We stayed in this guest house for the 2nd time. We enjoyed visiting This little town. We had interaction with Francois, the owner and he is a great person. He knows a lot, he cares to help, he is a kind person. Breakfast is fantastic. Truly enjoyed it. The room we had this time (number #2) is less good than... More

Francois and Rika and their staff went out of their way to make our stay as good as they could, even to the point of Francois having fresh coffee for us as we left well before breakfast time to catch our plane to Cape Town. The hospitality was excellent and the 4 rooms were very comfortable although of different sizes.

Stayed there only for a night. Gave a good impression. Rooms were clean, service was very good, and the guesthouse is close to the bars and resturants of St. Lucia. All in all an excellent stay. One really noticed how they went the extra mile.

We were warmly received by Rika who is such a kind person. We stayed in the very beautiful and spacious family suite. The beds are very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and Francois was giving us muffins to eat during our trip on the river. He also gave us a copy of the map to visit the Isimangaliso Wetland Reserve and... More

very hospitable guest house, a little bit more old fashioned than other accommodation as the furniture was large and dark, well made, but made the room feel darker. Having said this, it was all very clean, good small pool for our daughter and a great breakfast with heart shaped pancakes and hot chocolate which went down well. Lots of useful... More

Visiting this establishment made our first trip to St Lucia a memorable one. Rieke was a super efficient and friendly host. Francois was an incredibly knowledgeable individual who gave us soulfood with his words everyday. Would recommend this establishment to all who visit this beautiful area. They really go the extra mile... everything you need. Helpful, patient and worldly!
