Even before we arrived, Colin was helping us via email and giving us advice on activities, tour operators etc. When we arrived, Derrick gave us a glass of wine and talked us through everything we needed to know. He provided us with a map and marked on it the places of interest. The room was perfect. A lovely, comfortable, big... More

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

I came to St. Lucia with my sister and one of her friends to go on safari with them. I booked last-minute but that wasn't a problem at all. At our arrival we got welcome drinks and the owner Collin gave us a very nice introduction into St. Lucia and a lot of ideas about what to do. The room... More

We , as South Africans were welcomed in our own language (Afrikaans) , that is a huge positive point for us where so many South Africans are becoming ashamed of the Afrikaans language. Value for money was exellent as we payed in Rands and not Euro or ponds. The rest is rated below --overall , a memorable experience and would... More

We stayed with two friends from the UK. The management and staff couldn't be more helpful. They told us where to go, what attractions were worth seeing etc. Even offering masks, snorkels, towels and cooler boxes to visit Cape Vidal. The rooms were nicely appointed and big but the bathrooms are a little outdated. Nothing to stress about though.

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
