Nice place to stay, very nice and helpful kitchen and garden staff. Our room was spacious and comfortable, although it was a bit noisy because the room of other guest was directly next to ours. We used the braai facilities and the staff came out to help us. They also washed the cars in the morning.

Wonderful place. Beautiful green garden, full of monkeys and a nice pool. We had our private terrace and entrance. Rooms were comfortable. Staff and breakfast was excellent. Would have loved to staff longer. This place is a piece of heaven! St Lucia is a nice town aswell

We spent one night in St Lucia and fully enjoyed this guesthouse. Perfect location just off the (short) Main Street. Enjoyed a huge and lovely breakfast after a fantastic sleep. I stayed in the small room with the adjoining door. Thankfully my neighbors were quiet and I slept like a log (after reading other reviews I gather it can be... More

There are not a ton of great lodging options in St. Lucia. This has to be the best or one of the best places to stay in town. The atmosphere is very pleasant and the service is terrific. The owner Francois and the manager Marti were really helpful. Breakfast was one of the best we had in South Africa... That... More

Spending one night only at the Santa Lucia Guesthouse and we are happy with our choice of accommodation. Lovely quiet accommodation, wonderful gardens/surroundings, very nice breakfast and wonderful hospitality. The owners are always around to make sure that the guests are happy. We will definitely come back!
