“Happy memories”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

We enjoyed the peaceful, quiet environment, the privacy and the personal attention of the hosts. They were attentive and helpful. The accommodation was more than adequate in meeting our needs, clean and well fitted with all amenities.

Found the place super clean. Found double bed a little small. 2 bath towels for a family of 4 is too little and would have been nice to get 1 towel per person since the towels were not very big. I would go back.

We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and the area and thank you for your review. I do apologise about too few towels, we do provide 1 bath towel per person as standard. Any of us would have gladly given you extra towels on request, even swimming towels extra and corrected the mistake of 2 instead of 4 towels. The unit is small in size as is the bedroom and we can only fit a standard size bed. We do have 2 bedroom units which are more spacious. We look forward to see your family again!

We would like to thank you for your review. We are happy happy that you enjoyed your stay here and that you like the size of the 2 bedroom garden apartment/chalet unit.

We stayed two nights. We experienced a very warm and friendly atmosphere in a quiet location and not far away from restaurants and bars. It was always clean. All for a very good price. We would book again.

Thank you very much for the review, our garden chalet cottage units are quite spacious overall and more so for a couple, the high ceilings also help cool the unit in summer. Regards from us all!

A lovely home from home. Friendly unobstrusive staff. Well equipped flat with everything one needs for a few days away. Would definitely recommend to friends. My own suggestion would be more comfortable lounge furniture

This is our 3rd or 4th visit over 9 years. We will keep returning as we love the location & the way that Imelda runs the place. We have twice taken UK visitors who have been amazed at the value & wildlife.

The small coastal town St Lucia is uniquely situated inside a World Heritage Site, the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, which makes it an ideal base to experience our unspoilt natural heritage in one of the oldest, most diverse reserves in the world. Watch the sun rise over the sea and set over the lake in one day.

We are located in the main street away from the busy noisy town centre, still within walking distance to shops etc. Units are set in a natural tranquil garden on the bank of the St Lucia Lake. All units have access to the garden with lake view via a communal path through the premises. Units have no view of the lake. You can enjoy the scattered front garden view of the Lake, relax on a lounger chair under the trees or cool down in the swimming pool. We provide lots of information and map of this area. The garden is visited by resident wildlife and we share our living space with all creatures. We try to maintain a healthy food chain by using environmentally friendly products. We offer self-catering holiday accommodation, with owner family living on property. We have 3 joined garden units with each little garden separated by plants. 1 Affordable (budget type) flatlet with steps. Units are standard, comfortable, no-nonsense, very well equipped, clean and neat. You will feel at home. All opening windows and doors have insect netting protection. Parking is under roof cover on site at car port. Children: we offer a tree house with slide and toys for small children and a low trampoline. Swimming pool with fence but not child proof. Children must be supervised at all times.
