Elephant Coast Guest House
Ranked #3 of 31 St Lucia B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 April 2013

We came here 3 years ago and as soon as we booked a trip to South Africa Elephant Coast Guest House was top of our list for B&B.We were welcomed by the owners who are delightful , they then had a break and the famous Myrtle took over she was amazing we had a problem with our car hire company Europ car and she sorted it on the phone and was so kind .The rooms are large spotless and look out on the pool.Breakfast is so good it keeps you going all day.
If coming to St Lucia you need a minimum of 3 days there is such a lot to see and do

Room Tip: Room 4 is on the ground floor it has a fridge and we had a corner bath

To be honest: it was simply perfect:-) The owners are more than nice and are always there to answer your (sometimes stupid...) questions and help you during your stay. We had two really nice rooms (two adults, two kids) with a great view into the garden and the parc just behind. During the night you hear a lot of different animals, can see the stars from your balcony...The breakfast, served on the terrace, is excellent. The house is well located in St. Lucia to walk into town or to the beeches and the wetland parc and the coast are absolutly worth going there! Thank you!

It is a while ago now that we have been in Saint Lucia, but we really had a very good time in this guest house! Everything was perfect, we had a beautiful room, the breakfast was outstanding and the owners went out of their way to help us organise trips around Saint Lucia.
Really a very good choice! Go there!

We stayed in this guest house for two days. Two days in St. Lucia was enough for us because we didn't want to visit another park. If you want to visit the hluhluwe park you definitely have to book for 3 nights.

The guest house was perfect!! We had great rooms which were very clean. We had one room with two bedrooms which was huge! It even had 2 bathrooms (1 outside which was very nice). In front of this room was a really nice balcony.

The owners of this guest house are Dutch people who are very friendly and always willing to help you! Great people!!

The breakfast was the best we had in South Africa. Next to the 'normal things' like bread and jam they had a great range of different fruits, vegetables, cheeses and fruit juices.

They have a garden which is connected to a national park. If you are lucky you will see hippo's and monkeys in this garden. It is absolutaly safe so really nice to see these animals in the back garden.

Next to all these great things they have a really nice pool where you can relax for a few hours after a busy day. It is a nice swimmingpool with some bed.

So great place!!! You absolutely have to book this guest house if you plan to go to ST. Lucia.

We stayed in this guesthouse in february 2013. We felt very much at home. Friendly owners, who gave tips for things to do and were helpfull with the booking. A very tasteful decorated house and room. Great bathroom too. Good service, nice breakfast. An ideal place in St.Lucia to spend your holidays. We recommend this guesthouse very much, and would like to come back!

A lovely guest house with comfortable rooms. We were really pleased with our room which had a balcony overlooking the garden and the small plunge pool. The lounge/dining area is very pleasant and an excellent breakfast served. Bath and shower in the bathroom which was very spacious. The Hippo's didn't oblige with a nightly walk through the garden but we did see some Buck. The Guest House is within walking distance of the town and is well located for a great drive to Cape Vidal Nature Reserve and the Lagoon.
