We recently travelled to St. Lucia as an extended family including three kids. We spent 3 nights at Whalesong B&B in St Lucia and really liked our stay. The location is fabulous, in a quiet street, yet just minutes away from the busy McKenzie street with restaurants and shops. From the veranda and pool area you can hear the Indian... More

Whalesong, run by the amiable and informative Coleen and Colin, is a delightful home base for exploring the fascinating surroundings of iSimangaliso/St Lucia. The rooms are spacious, the whole lodge immaculate and the breakfast superb, with a self-service espresso machine for early risers who might want to wander down to the nearby beach in search of leopards, or for those...

We enjoyed our stay at this B&B. The hosts are very accommodating and provided great details on the area, plus assisted with any tour bookings. Breakfasts were terrific and filling! The room itself (Sea Spray) was roomy and relatively comfortable.

Our hosts Colin and Coleen really made the weekend an amazing experience. They went out of their way to help us book activities (boat trips), packed us an awesome spread for breakfast and lunch on the day we went to Mkhuze and had great advice regarding where to eat etc. The accommodation is a great spot to explore the area...

we stayed at this lovely B&B in February. It is in a quiet street. The hosts are very friendly and very knowledgeable about the immediate area and beyond. They booked a very enjoyable river trip to see the hippos. The accommodation is upmarket and I would have no hesitation in recommending this B&B.

We have often stayed in St Lucia and had heard great things about Whalesong Guest House and had wanted to stay there but they were often fully booked. This time we had been fortunate to have been able to make a booking and from the moment we arrived we were given a warm reception and made to feel very welcome... More
