Very warm welcome from the owners. They were very friendly and gave us some tipps, to visit some things. The accommodation ist not the very newest one, but ok. Breakfast was good and fresh. The Location in the Center of St.Lucia was perfect.

We had to check out at 5am to catch a morning flight at Durban, and Philip very kindly packed us a breakfast spread for the road. His recommendations on dining were also...

We really enjoyed our stay here, the room was spacious and the breakfast was amazing, the best we had in any guesthouse in SA. The owners were really friendly and gave us great information on what to do in the area and how to get to Durban airport on time for our early flight.

We were warmly welcomed by the owner and taken to our very nice room where we enoyed a relaxing 4 days. The room was spotless and the gardens outside were manicured with bird feeders that attracted manikens and sunbirds. The breakfast was the best that I have ever had in a B&B. Staff was very helpful in arranging local tours.

When you lie in the bed and the smelliness of mould comes in your nose from underneath of the bed the whole night, than it`s horrible to sleep. Everything seemed clammy in the room. We were...
