The couple who run this guesthouse could not have been more friendly. They looked after us so well and made sure we got the best out of our stay. Simple advice made all the difference - which roads to take in the Isimangaliso Park together with the fact that they gave us a cool box to take a packed lunch... More

The hospitality of the owners Rik and Francois was outstanding. Their advises regarding the activities in the region are extremely helpful... Great location; clean, nice furnitured rooms with everything you need; very tasty and nice served breakfast. Nice, green, full of exotic plants veranda to have a glass of vine at the end of the day. Probably the best place... More

We had an excellent stay in St. Lucia at the Santa Lucia B&B. The hosts Francois and Rika are warm, welcoming, incredibly helpful and eager to share the magic of St. Lucia with you. Delicious hearty breakfasts, on the patio in a beautiful garden when the weather allows. We enjoyed the pool and our room, spotless with a lovely homey... More

This was easily the best place we stayed at in South Africa. And that's not because the rest was bad! Rika and Francois really made us feel at home, had lots of useful information on St. Lucia and the Park and anything else we might need. Breakfast was always excellent and interesting, since they took special care to arrange all... More

The owners are wonderful people who make your stay memorable. The house is lovely and the garden so beautiful, very peaceful yet only a few minutes walk to the town. Excellent breakfast, nothing is too much trouble, and Rik and Francois make you feel very much at home. Francois makes helpful suggestions as to what to do and we took... More

Such a special place, both St Lucia & "santa lucia guesthouse" Had a great time; the house is beautiful & the couple who own it are very special...they make you feel at home & will help in any way they can. Breakfasts are super & the house is walking distance to town.

we enjoyed the stay and tours in St Lucia and surroundings, and the guesthouse definitely enhanced our experience. Central but quiet location, helpful and pleasant staff and owners, excellent breakfasts, attention to detail, and beautiful indigenous garden right outside our terrace added up to this special experience.

We spent a wonderful stay at this guesthouse with the whole family. Very very kind owners. Hope to get there soon again. Only the frogs at night were a little bit noisy :-) The weather also was not so nice, but despite that we had really a good time. The breakfast is absolutely gorgeous !

We were greeted at the guest house by the owner - a remarkable chap of 93! He gave us some useful hints and tips of what to see and do in St Lucia and showed us to our room, which was actually a large light and airy apartment with full self catering facilities. It was spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated... More
