It seems to be at home but it's even better. Big rooms, furnished with great taste, comfortable toilets and a great hospitality from the manager, who has a fabulous sense of humor and takes care of his guests like they were his children. Definetely recommended. Breakfast was amazing, served in the garden!

mr and mrs van der Merwe and their staff gave us a stay to remember in St. Lucia. Their personal touch, their friendliness will we always remember. The guesthouse is situated two blocks of the main road in St Lucia. Everything is within walking distance. The staff arranged an excellent hippo/croc tour for us in a small boat (8 persons)....

Friendly and helpful staff. They can arrange everything you might be interested in doing, plenty of hippos and crocodiles on the agenda in my case. Very comfortable rooms and simply the best breakfast in South Africa.

We loved our Time st Santa Lucia. Great location which meant walking distance to restaurants and the town centre. Fresh local fruit presented with our delicious english breakfast each morning after having a great sleep in comforable bed. Our Hostess was warm and friendly and most helpful when asked for any advice.

The Santa Lucia guest house was so welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners and staff. The rooms were lovely, and there was a wonderful choice for breakfast. There were seven in our party and we all agreed we would love to stay there again, and would recommend it to friends.
