We had a happy week with Glynis and Bruce, always a smile to greet us. Glynis cooks great little treats at breakfast. The rooms are comfortable with good seating areas inside and around the pool. We had excellent advice on places to visit, what the cost would be and trips booked for us. If needed a packed breakfast would be... More

What a great place to stay! Large, comfortable rooms, friendly homely atmosphere with a communal lounge/tv area, great breakfast and an absolutely amazing hostess. Glynis is incredibly service minded, generous in lending out snorkel equipment, sun-umbrellas etc and always prepared to provide packed breakfasts or lunches. She even allowed us to use her kitchen one evening as we were tired... More

Beautiful guesthouse in a quiet area in St. Lucia. We had the room with directly access to the pool - very nice and relaxing! Breakfast was fantastic with egg, bacon, fruits, joghurt, muffin, ... Very helpful and wonderful hosts. They gave us good tips for great activities in the area and supported us with equipment for the beach day.

Igwalagwala is a place one can easily visit again and again. The hosts, Glynis and Bruce were warm, knowledgeable and catered for our every need. They recommended interesting places to visit and ensured that when we visited Cape Vidal (the highlight of our stay), that umbrellas, deck-chairs and snorkeling equipment was made available for us us take along. Our room... More

This is a very well-run, clean and comfortable guesthouse. As soon as you walk in, you can tell that Glynnis and her husband keep everything in excellent working order. Our room was large, comfortable and quiet and we enjoyed a dip in the pool to cool off after our drive from Eshowe. The breakfast was excellent too. A great place... More
