We visited this place in 2010 on a previous visit to the area and held positive memories. The place has a new owner, but the same excellent level of service. Since the manager was on holiday, we were welcomed by Craig and three friendly dogs. The cottage was in a good state and clean. An breakfast menu that varied every day and gave us a good start for the day. A small swimming pool and honesty bar. Very friendly and helpful staff. They also book excursion for guests and Craig told me he is a licensed guide himself. Because of load shedding (power cuts) some of the nights were not so comfortable in the hot and humid climate without power to keep on the air conditioning, but power cuts happen everywhere in Kwazulu Natal and there is nothing our hosts could do about them. Overall we had a very relaxing stay.

Dear Will, Thank you so much for your lovely review of our guesthouse, I am pleased that you enjoyed your time in St Lucia again. Hope you are enjoying the rest of your travels.

We enjoyed our stay. Bonita was a helpful,friendly host. Room was clean and pleasant with clean towels daily. We were able to swim and braai. We experienced extremely hot weather during our visit to St Lucia. Fortunately the rooms have air conditioning. Just the breakfast area has no air conditioning which made it a bit uncomfortable.

Dear Martin And Marleen, Thank you for the lovely review, I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay and St Lucia. The dining room area does have aircon, I just couldn't turn it on during loadshedding which was from 08h00-10h00. :-(. My apologies. I hope to welcome you back in the future. Best Wishes, Bonita

We couldn’t have wished for a better into to South Africa having driven up from Durban. Everything was spot on & the helpful tips from Bonita made sure we really got the best out of our stay - including a drive up to Cape Vidal & boo ko g us in on a boat trip to see the Hippos & Crocs

Nice place, perfect location, very friendly and family caring staff/owner. Would certainly like to come back for another holiday at the KwaZulu - Natal north coast. Ideal for visiting the wetlands around St. Lucia.
