Our family of 8 had a very nice experience. Peter and Gisela were marvelous hosts, providing great suggestions on things to do and see. The property, as well as the town of St. Lucia were charming. We would definitely make a return visit.

I stayed here during a busy long weekend in August 2013. I had booked online, but when I arrived there had been a double booking of sorts. St Lucia was very busy that weekend but the hosts found me a place to stay at another guest house for the friday and welcomed me back for the saturday night which was...

A fantastic place to stay. A great family atmosphere. The hosts, Peter and Gisela were inviting and helpful at providing useful information about the area. They were particularly welcoming to our three children aged 8, 11 & 14 and made them feel at ease. The breakfasts, both cold and cooked were excellent, as was the never ending coffee supply. Relaxing...

Traveling with a professional tour company, our stop in St. Lucia included 2 nights at Maputaland. Our group of 7 sat comfortably in the large and well furnished dining room. Lots of art and personal collections of the owners all around. Food was excellent and plentiful. Rooms were comfortable, and our group enjoyed visiting with the owners on the large...

As we looked forward to a holiday in St Lucia where we have never been, we were so disappointed in the accommodation at Maputaland. It barely complies to the standard of a two star Bed and Breakfast. As the comment below, I cannot fault the owners but overall it was NOT a pleasant experience and we left earlier than expected....

We have visited many guest houses in South Africa and consider we can give a reasonable objective judgement on where we have stayed. The only thing about this place that was 4 star were the owners who could not be faulted for their help advice and hospitality. We assume the rating was done when the guest house first opened as...

Maputaland B&B is a fantastic place to stay when in St Lucia. Although we did not have a booking, we were lucky and they had a room for us - we stayed there for 3 nights. We got a buffalo room that is really nice and cozy, you can feel the personal touch in the smallest things. The bathroom was...

Gisela and Peter went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. They made bookings for us and gave us very useful tips which helped us plan our short stay so that we got the most out of it.

Firstly, I wouldn't necessarily agree with the advertised 'luxury' status of the rooms - they are however, spacious and comfortable, and one gets a cafetiere with ground coffee to use at will. Soundproofing could be better, as I listened to guests next door happily snoring! Hosts were very willing to help with an extra blanket (St Lucia happened to be...

Nice rooms, good food, very friendly owners. Loved it! They were very helpful in giving us info on the area and let us stay until 1:00pm the next day so we could shower before our flight back to the US.
