Thank you very much to Hettie, Derek, Natalie and Colin for al your help to see all the great things available in and around St Lucia. Very much appreciated from 2 kiwis far from home and we now have some great friends in a wonderful part of the world!
We felt very welcome and very much at home in beautiful surroundings. The room was just so very comfortable and as spacious as anywhere we have stayed. The breakfast was superb and unlike any we have had at other places we have stayed. We will return one day and definitely recommend it to anyone heading to St Lucia. It is a lovely spot and a great base for exploring KwaZulu Natal and all the wonderful things the region has to offer.
Many thanks
Gary and Lynne

Very clean, quiet and comfortable rooms.
We had a great breakfast.
It is definitely a good location to visit the area and enjoy the coast.

The hosts are amazing as fully available and helpful for all questions, any time.
We even had our car washed on the parking !

We stayed with Hetty and Derrick for 2 nights and they were excellent hosts. Derrick advised us to go to the local fisherman's pub for supper and this was outstanding! Loud, smokey and down to earth, full of locals with excellent fresh fish and great service. If we go to St Lucia again we will stay at the St Lucia Wetlands guest house.

Loved the Wetlands Guesthouse! Character place but so clean and comfortable. Very welcoming, informative and helpful hosts who helped us make the most of our time in St Lucia and surrounds. Comfy beds and yummy and plentiful breakfasts on the balcony were a highlight too!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at St. Lucia wetlands - our hosts made sure we had everything we needed, and were quite present and available for questions, etc. The rooms and locations were beautiful and quiet. The location allows you to walk down to the beach and enjoy some sunshine and beautiful coastline. Quite the treat after days on safari in a jeep. Would definitely recommend this as a place to stay!

We, a family of four, spent four nights at the St. Lucia Wetlands Guesthouse. We had a two-bedroom family unit which was quite spacious and only lacked some place for towels and swim suits to dry off. All beds have Mosquito nets. Sadly, they were either a bit short or difficult to close fully. (Maybe not that important as most sources say there is very little risk of malaria. Nonetheless, we found this a disadvantage.) Furniture and the Guesthouse as such are a bit old-fashioned. Breakfast was good and plentiful. Truly extraordinary was the service Hetti & Derick offered. They had lots of advice what to do and booked it for us directly. They provided us with beach towels, bodyboards and snorkeling gear for the beach as well as a cooling box to store lunch. When we left early the last morning we received packed breakfasts which would have been enough for eight people! And the car was washed every morning anyhow! So, a big thanks to Hetti, Derick and their staff!

This was a very tastefully decorated guesthouse with fabulous large rooms, mine had a large dressing room as well as en suite. It was a shame we were only there one night so I didn't even get a chance to unpack! The pool was very inviting after a long drive and the breakfast was excellent. I would like to definitely go back and stay longer.
