Lovely house and garden, sociable owners, very convenient for town. Nice big comfy room and bed with personal verandah and view of pool. Good breakfasts with freshly cooked eggs 9 though bacon a bit flabby). Eat outside, great place. Would come again.

Only 1 night in St. Lucia while on a side trip from Durban to visit the Hluhluwe Imfolozi park and the St.Lucia guesthouse was the perfect home from home while in town. Just 2 blocks back from McKenzie St and in a quiet location opposite a park. Hosts Eileen and Siobhon were friendly and hospitable, room was charming , spacious and perfect for the night. Bed was very comfortable, sadly owing to the power shedding, it was a little warm for a while until the power came back and the AC clicked in. Bathroom was equally spacious, easy to use shower, soaps and towels provided , everything you needed and space for your own wash bag on the counter. Nice outdoor seating area to enjoy a beer or glass of wine and enjoy the peaceful surroundings. Owing to very early pickup for trip to the park, did not get to sample breakfast but I’m sure it would have been delicious. Parking was included on site and no issue in leaving the car until we returned back from our tour. Walking distance to everything, the hippo and croc tour is a short walk away over the bridge, restaurants and bars are minutes away so a perfect choice to stay while in St. Lucia.

Excellent post booking communications. Warm welcome. Meeting staff and owners Phillip and Eileen who are actively on the premises engaging with guests. Pleasant, relaxed secure and homely environment. Comfortable spacious room serviced thoroughly each day. Great breakfast on the terrace. Close proximity to restaurants and shops but in a quiet location. Tours booked for us by Phillip were first class. Stayed four nights but didn't see everything there is to enjoy locally. It's definitely a place to stay awhile. Highly recommend St Lucia Guest House
