My son and I stayed two nights at St. Lucia Wetlands Guesthouse. We were amazed by Hettie & Derick's hospitality. When I booked a room, I forgot to mention that we needed a room with two beds. Upon arrival we both were placed into room with one king-size bed. However, Hettie was nice enough to give my son another room...

I came to St. Lucia with my sister and one of her friends to go on safari with them. I booked last-minute but that wasn't a problem at all. At our arrival we got welcome drinks and the owner Collin gave us a very nice introduction into St. Lucia and a lot of ideas about what to do. The room...

Hello Dana, Thank you for the kind words on your review. Although your stay was short lived it was a pleasure hosting the three of you. I would definitely recommend you return so that we can spoil you with a real breakfast. Wishing you all the best in your remaining months in South Africa. Warm Regards, Colin

We stayed with two friends from the UK. The management and staff couldn't be more helpful. They told us where to go, what attractions were worth seeing etc. Even offering masks, snorkels, towels and cooler boxes to visit Cape Vidal. The rooms were nicely appointed and big but the bathrooms are a little outdated. Nothing to stress about though.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled in the midst of an exceptional World Heritage Site, St Lucia Wetlands Guest House is the ideal destination for those travelers looking to find tranquility and comfort whilst exploring the magical beach, estuary, and game parks around us. Our guest experience begins with welcoming drinks and a comprehensive orientation of the area. Highlights amongst the many activities in St Lucia and the surrounding areas include a sunset boat cruise down the estuary, featuring an abundance of hippos, crocodiles, and bird life; a day-trip through South Africa's first World Heritage Site, a "Big Four" game park known as the iSimangaliso Wetland Park; and of course our beautiful beaches along the Indian Ocean in St Lucia and at the renowned Cape Vidal. At the house, our guests find a dedicated team committed to providing an excellent experience for each and every guest, all the while allowing them privacy and exclusive use of the house, its balconies and patios, lounge, pool and garden. We take pride in our full breakfast, served daily, with options for every visitor's tastes. Indeed, South African hospitality at its best. ... more   less
