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

This completely blew us away. Thank you for your glowing feedback. It spurs us on to continue to look for new ways we can spoil our guests and of course entice them to return to St Lucia More

My husband and I spent 7 nights at Whalesong B&B and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owners Colin and Colleen went out of their way to make sure we enjoy ourselves.

The hosts were very pleasant and helpful, we enjoyed their company. The pool area is great for tanning and swimming - a nice new big pool. The first few nights the Aircon was a little noisy, seemed to get better by the end of our stay. We didn't quite realise when booking that the rooms are within one house. The... More

Comfortable guesthouse in St Lucia ideally situated for the National Park. Colin & Colleen are excellent hosts and go out of their way to make you feel welcome and recommendations as to what to see and do. We had a great boat trip to see the hippos. We loved St Lucia and the surrounding area and would definitely return.
