This was one of the cleanest B&B's that we stayed at throughout our 3 weeks travelling in South Africa. Both Colin and Colleen were more than helpful in advising sights to see. Make sure you book the early evening Shaka boat tour while your there. Lovely pool in beautiful garden setting!

What a wonderful place to find in St Lucia. The owners Colin and Colleen really take pride in their superb establishment. Freshly baked bread and muffins compliment an excellent breakfast. The view from the verandah over the mature garden is stunning. On one of our evenings we witnessed a terrific storm that brought down their Lappa into the swimming pool,... More

Thank you for the fabulous feedback. Well, the lapa has now disappeared and several attempts have been made in an effort to save the water in the pool. Sadly, we are down to the last resort and will be draining the pool. More

Very nice, knowledgeable and helpful hosts. The guesthouse and garden are great, well maintained, and the breakfast is amazing. We had a great time, very relaxing with lots of tips where to go for dinner and what to see around St Lucia. Can only recommend staying here.

We really had a good stay at Whalesong. Col and Col were very friendly and were very willing to answer all our questions about st. Lucia and surroundings. We also really liked the home made cookies in our room (we may have taken some with us on our day trips ;) And the breakfast was great, we loved the home... More

Thank you for your great comments; we strive to make each stay special. The monkey business was a new one for us. We have subsequently installed a screen on the outside of the window so that you may leave the window open without having the worry about monkey or mosquito intruders. More

Our one-night stay at Whalesong Guesthouse was very nice despite a most unwelcoming weather. The guesthouse is set on small grounds, but the room we had was spacious, pleasant and comfortably appointed, as well as spotlessly clean. It had a large bay window and balcony on the small pool and garden. The owners were most friendly and welcoming. The breakfast... More

The Whalesong Guest House is a very nice B&B located in St. Lucia. The couple who owns the Guest House was very friendly and helpful to organize everything in St. Lucia and supported us in planning our journey to the Kruger.
