“Recommended accommodation- Mpisi unit in Little Eden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

The hostess, Bianca, is warm and welcoming. She does her best to make guests feel at home. Ms Heila is also friendly and welcoming. We stayed in Mpisi, a well-appointed unit which has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, kitchen (very well equipped), dining room and lounge/tv room. It was clean, spacious and very nicely furnished, with the pool five steps away from our door. Mpisi has a lovely view over the wetlands and a distant sea view. Wifi was sketchy, but everything else ok. We even had a hippo family visit us when we were sitting under the lapa on new year's eve! Little Eden is in a quiet area of St Lucia, thank goodness, but all the shops and other amenities are within walking distance, and safe. We spent seven days, did most of the St Lucia activities on offer, but really just wanted to rest. Would return to Little Eden :). Verna

Dear Verna,

Thank you for the very kind words! It was an absolute pleasure to host you and your lovely family. You were so excited about the holiday and we communicated so much via email, that when you arrived it felt like I was welcoming a long lost friend again!
I look forward to your next visit! Please send my regards to your children.

Regards
Amanda

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

We spent 2 nights in the Ndlovu self-catering unit. We couldn't find fault with anything at all - the unit and furnishings were in great condition, and there was a lot of space.

The accommodation itself was not a destination though. While St Lucia is pleasant and relaxing, there isn't much to Little Eden that would make you remember it. There is a decent pool and boma with a view across the forests, but the hippo trails don't come across the property itself, unlike some of the other options in St Lucia.

Just be aware that the wifi in the units is only free for the first 30 minutes. You have to go to the reception to use the rest of the wifi.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for the compliments and the kind words. I am very glad you liked Little Eden!
It is a pity that you did not see any Hippo's when you were here. As we border on the wetlands we are one of the most popular spots for Hippo's to visit. Our guests report sightings in the garden almost every morning. As our pool borders the wetlands, they love drinking water from our swimming pool. It really is a pity that you did not get to see this spectacular sight.

I thank you once again for the kind words and maybe if you come to Little Eden again you will be lucky to see some Hippo's in our garden.

Regards
Amanda

Very spacious and clean apartment. The hostesses are very friendly! You can have a nice breakfast in the next door (related) accommodation. Pool is spacious and has a beautiful location. The main street where you can eat well is a 2 min drive (good prices!). Recommended to stay in St. Lucia.

We stayed at Little Eden mainly because Ndiza Lodge was fully booked, but we enjoyed it anyway.
It is located right next to Ndiza meaning that it lies in the quieter part of St. Lucia which we enjoyed a lot. To get to the main road takes about five minutes in foot, so no problem there.
Breakfast on request was served on Ndiza`s deck and you could enjoy the infrastructure of Ndiza at your wish. To get further information, Bianca, the owner of Little Eden, was not always present, but available via cell phone and was very nice when we needed anything. We used the reception of Ndiza`s a lot and Amanda and Heila were very friendly and helpful, too.
We stayed at Impunzi, a ground floor flat that sleeps 2-4 persons, facing the pool and the river. It was very spacious, tidy and well equipped as a self-catering unit. Wi-fi did not work properly, but Bianca was more than helpful to solve this issue. The distance to Hluhluwi-Imfolozi-NP is a 45min drive, Cape Vidal NP is rather small but we spotted a lot more animals than in Kruger`s and it has a great flora!

Little Eden is a nice place to stay in St. Lucia!

Room Tip: Impunzi is situated on the ground floor, faces the pool area and sleeps 2-4 people. I am not sure...

We chose this place as it had views and Wifi. We had neither from our accomodation. That being said everything was clean and tidy and well equiped. Not that close to the town but peaceful at night. There is a metal barbeque and not a traditional braai

Little Eden is everything that it promises and more. Beautiful and clean. So happy that we found it and will definitely be going back. The aircon is a god send and the pool is beautiful. Cleaning staff are also amazing. Close to everything. Bianca is an absolute STAR. Thank you for an unforgettable family-moon.

Little Eden is home from home,everything you need is there.The unit we stayed in was neat clean and tastefully decorated.The actual size of the unit was very impressive and my family was more than comfortable.The staff were like little fairies in the night that came and cleaned your unit and you didint even see them.The braai facilities were good and we braaied most evenings.The pool was always sparkling clean wich was awesome to jump in after at day at the beach.We actually had our wedding in St Lucia at little Eden and so I can honestly say that Bianca who arranged the whole thing for us will go the extra mile to make your stay memorable and enjoyable.We will definately be returning next year.

Room Tip: No need to be fussy on a unit as they are all awesome.
