The rooms are grouped in a very nice garden. Room are clean and well equipped. Ideal location to visit the Wetland and St Lucai Lake. Fam van... More

We stayed 3 nights, during our stay in St. Lucia. Location is good, with a 5 min. walking distance to main street where the shops and restaurants are. Rooms are very nice; spacious, large bed, wifi and tv working well, good working shower. Some insects sometimes though. Breakfast was very nice. Plenty of choice; eggs, small pancakes, muffins, toast, cereal,... More

It was very nice having you here for three days and I am glad you enjoyed our good breakfasts. We do sometimes have small spiders and bugs entering the rooms, this is Africa, but we do spray every day after cleaning to make sure the bugs do not bother our guests. More

This little lodge in Saint Lucia surpassed our expectations. The lodge is beautifully located in a quaint part of town and it is a wonderful place to spend a few days and visit the park of iSimangaliso. The staff was wonderful but the best asset of this lodge are Tessa and Else. These ladies are the heart and soul of... More

Locally owned by a couple who definitely understand the importance of providing an authentic feel while also providing luxury quality & comfort at an affordable price. The poolside breakfast was also excellent in selection and taste. I will let my photographs help the viewers to visualize the style and comfort of the lodging. Very highly recommended while staying in St... More

The pictures looked great but the lodge itself is just amazing. I find this to be the most amazing lodge we visited in our 24 days in South-Africa. The staff was also very helpful and arranged the activities and even a bottle of champagne for our honeymoon.

I agree with you, this really is a little paradise. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your honeymoon in South Africa. On your twenty fifth anniversary you must return for another bottle of champagne. Once more, have a wonderful life together and remember love is giving and not expecting anything in return, except love. More

Great property. Wonderful lush gardens, large lounge with bar. The room and bathroom were large and well furnished.
