Our stay here was excellent.
Great help from the owners with a lot of tips about where to go. Very helpfull with making reservations for activities. Thank you for everything.
The best was the breakfast. Many choices and every single one was delicious.
I'm out of words where there is still a lot to say about this amazing place. My advice is, go there and experience it for yourself.

Kind regards

The laughing girl & friend

We have stayed for 4 night in Santa Lucia. We loved every moment of it the specific room that we have booked was not available due to some renovations, so we have a choice of few other potential rooms and we have chosen the one that appealed to us. It was a lovely lovely room (or actually a suit). The entire house and the garden are lovely, very well maintained. . Breakfast was delicious and everyone were most attentive. Martie helped us book all our trips for the days in St Lucia, from the 3 hours drive on the boat where we have seen hippos and crocodiles to the one day in Imfolozi, then one day in the game park of cape Vidal. All were great success. When the day started earlier Martie ensured that the breakfast will be ready before the usual breakfast time. Martie sent our cloths to the laundry, they returned the same day and were cleaned and ironed fantastically,
The entire stay way simply outstanding

Room Tip: Room #6 is fantastic. Has its privacy, it's own entrance and lovely setting.

The Guesthouse comes highly recommended and we made a very good choice!!!!! We booked as a group of 7, but sadly one member of our party had to stay behind and was sick. The staff made a huge imperssion on all of us and breakfast was really very good!!!!!!!
Martie next time you will see me again and i will refer more friends and family to Santa Lucia Guesthouse indeed.
Oom Francois gave us 2 bottles of wine on the house, this made my hart goes faster. Eating out is no problem and we were given instructions where to go and what to eat.

Martie thank you for the booking made for us per boat on the lake and the spotting Hippo`s we all loved it!!!!!

Room Tip: The rooms over looking the Pool area was great!!!!!

We recently spent 3 nights at the Santa Lucia Guesthouse. Francois, Rika and staff went out of their way to be helpful, making tour bookings for us, suggesting places to visit and providing us with a more interesting route for our onward journey. The breakfast was excellent, in particular the home-made muffins!

This is a place were you realy feel like a guest and hospitality is still the way it should be. Rooms are perfect, but the older couple who own the place (Francois and Rika) are really so nice and helpfull. Francois makes sure you get all information you need before going on the road. Martie, who actually runs the place and takes care of the staff is special. You have to know her, but behind the sergant-major hides a very pleasant and warm woman, who makes on request the best (avocado) breakfast in whole Africa. The rooms are perfectly clean and well maintained. Even bath-coats for after a shower or swimming are oin your room.
Two points for improvement: WIFI connection is slow and some comfortable chairs/pillows around a clean swimmingpool would make it real paradise.

Room Tip: Room 2 had it's own acces (after dark) and direct acces to the garden and swimmingpool.

We picked out three b&b's from the St Lucia brochure and emailed each for prices etc., The response from Santa Lucia Guesthouse was impressive and informative, as well as being very good value.. We were given various options on how to pay and how to pay safely online (Booksure) if you did not want to send your card details by email etc. We were given full details of what the accommodation offered (tea coffee-making facilities with tea & coffee, fridge, hairdryer, air-con and/or fan, TV etc.) road instructions on how to get there, attractions we might like to visit and what was available, where the nearest game reserve was, how to get there etc etc....in fact, everything a tourist would like to know before they arrive.
We checked in (if you are early you are welcome to leave your bags if the room isn't ready) and were offered a drink, seen to our room before we filled in the normal forms.As we only arrived early that afternoon, Rika recommended the 2 hr boat trip, but in the meantime suggested where we could walk to explore the area, and a reasonable restaurant to eat at.night, avoiding stray hippos who might just take a stroll around town!
The following morning breakfast was served out on a terrace under umbrellas and the food selection was excellent. As the avocado season is just starting and Rika was experimenting with breakfast delicacies - that morning toast, avocado, scrambled egg and melted cheese, especially prepared. You could have your own table or mix in with the other guests. Francois was busy giving out small maps of routes to everyone and pointing out the routes so as not to waste precious time, Cold boxes and snorkels were provided to anyone who wanted them. We immediately decided to stay an extra night. We cannot fault the welcome, the service, the breakfasts and the sheer pleasure of being a guest in this beautiful b&b which goes that extra mile to make all of their guests comfortable and we can't wait to get back again next year!

Room Tip: Choose a room off the main street
