There aren't enough superlatives in my vocabulary to praise this place, from the warm welcome to the stunningly beautiful collection of plants in the garden, the spacious and beautifully appointed bedroom and attached bath, the succulent breakfast (with ample offerings even for a vegan!), the freshly washed car for my departure... and at such a phenomenally economical price!

My son and I stayed two nights at St. Lucia Wetlands Guesthouse. We were amazed by Hettie & Derick's hospitality. When I booked a room, I forgot to mention that we needed a room with two beds. Upon arrival we both were placed into room with one king-size bed. However, Hettie was nice enough to give my son another room... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled in the midst of an exceptional World Heritage Site, St Lucia Wetlands Guest House is the ideal destination for those travelers looking to find tranquility and comfort whilst exploring the magical beach, estuary, and game parks around us. Our guest experience begins with welcoming drinks and a comprehensive orientation of the area. Highlights amongst the many activities in St Lucia and the surrounding areas include a sunset boat cruise down the estuary, featuring an abundance of hippos, crocodiles, and bird life; a day-trip through South Africa's first World Heritage Site, a "Big Four" game park known as the iSimangaliso Wetland Park; and of course our beautiful beaches along the Indian Ocean in St Lucia and at the renowned Cape Vidal. At the house, our guests find a dedicated team committed to providing an excellent experience for each and every guest, all the while allowing them privacy and exclusive use of the house, its balconies and patios, lounge, pool and garden. We take pride in our full breakfast, served daily, with options for every visitor's tastes. Indeed, South African hospitality at its best. ... more   less
