St. Lucia Wetlands Guesthouse
Ranked #2 of 31 St Lucia B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 4, 2013

We were greeted with a drink by lovely hosts. Unfortunately for us (we were on a tour) only one night was available to us. This is a place where you need to spend more than one night and explore the surroundings. We did not give the location justice. The guesthouse was like stepping back in time and you could not fault the service and the rooms. The décor blew my mind as the rooms seem like they were jumping out of a magazine. Very clean and breakfast was enjoyed out on the veranda. Fortunately for me I had the best room in the house and I felt like a princess in my big beautiful, wonderful bed. My first reaction was I can't sleep here as the room décor seem like it was out of a fairy tale book. Beautiful big windows which I love looking out on to the swimming pool and the grounds were very inviting to take a stroll. Thank you very much for this unique experience (shame I had no one to share it with)

Room Tip: I stayed in the room opposite the swimming pool and felt like a Princess!

The room we had was so graceful and elegant. The bed was very comfortable, the amenities were suberb. Lush gardens, comforable and unique furnishings, outside veranda seating for a breakfast that was just perfect and bountiful. The owners could not have been more hospitable and helpful. They are located in a quiet area that is close to the town, the Wetlands and the beach areas that we could drive to easily. We had come to St Lucia to do a sea excursion to see the whales but it was cancelled by the tour service three seperate times for mechanical problems, so be prepared for this situation. This family and their BnB made up for the disapppointment. They assisted us with suggestions of what to see and where to eat. They were on target. We fully enjoyed our visit. If you are traveling to St Lucia, South Africa, do yourself a favor and look at this beautiful and comfortable location. To the family, Thank you.. Eileen and Mary from USA

My son (11 yrs) and I stayed for three days/nights at St. Lucia Wetlands Guesthouse. Great location and VERY helpful hosts; they supplied us with good tips/hints of what to do, provided us with snorkeling equipment etc. The room was large and very clean - although a bit dark. All in all we enjoyed our stay in St. Lucia and at Wetlands Guesthouse.

Nice stay and friendly hosts. Facility has some colonial touch and could use some lighter coulors. Glas door of shower was not well cleaned. Breakfast was good too and hosts gave some good tips about the area.

Vielen dank für ihre kommentare. Water in St Lucia is regarded as "hard" with high levels of calcium and magnesium. Hard water interferes with almost every cleaning task from laundering to dishwashing and may cause a film on glass shower doors, shower walls, bathtubs, sinks, faucets, etc. However, hard water is not harmful to drinking. I have just mentioned this so that you can be assured that your shower doors had been cleaned thoroughly before your use. Warm regards to you and your family from a sunny St Lucia.

Very pleasant stay! Excellent assistance and friendly staff. You will enjoy great accomodation and breakfast. The guest house in situated in the quieter area of St. Lucia, but just a short walk away from the more touristic parts of it. By chance, you will gather some hippos on your way "downtown".
