Santa Lucia Guesthouse

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 July 2014

Cute place in a luxurious garden a few blocks from the main street of Santa Lucia. The service is excellent and you quickly feel like at home. The breakfasts are really good and generous. The team is always here to give you recommendations and show you what to do around. It is the perfect place to visit the beautiful area of Santa Lucia.

The first stop after flying in from London, Santa Lucia guesthouse epitomised South African hospitality. Beautiful breakfast, amazing house and great location. The rooms are all part of a grand property making you feel at home withOut losing a sense of privacy. The family that run the B&B is really what makes this place the way it is. Originally a family home, you can detonate my feel the love they have poured into the place and even a brief chat with them will give you a sense of the amazing history they have experienced. Plus we were allowed to sleep in till eleven am and still treated to the five star full English breakfast. Will definitely be coming back.

We just came back from St Lucia and we had such a blast! All the reviews I read about this acccomodation were simply true: wonderful welcoming, activities arranged for us including tips on where to go in Cape Vidal, calling boat company on our behalf, marking where we can spot animal in Imfolozi, giving us cooler box for our picnic, cleaning our car before going on safari.... Room are spacious (we were in the family unit) and so clean with a decoration so charming. Breakfast is so good and so big. Wouhaou my family would like to thank you again for making our stay so special and restful with your beautiful garden and amazing staff.
We hope to be back one day

We stayed 2 nights at Santa Lucia Guest House and were warmly welcomed by our hostess, Martie. She went out of her way to assist us and recommended the Hippo & Croc boat cruise, but also the drive up to Cape Vidal which was a fantastic beginning to sighting the wild animals in a beautiful game park.

The breakfasts were the best we had during our entire 3 week stay in S. Africa !

Stayed here in 2008 and was looking forward to returning after too long a gap between visits. We were not disappointed, everything at Santa Lucia is first class! From your first welcome to your last goodbye the treatment is warm, welcoming and genuine - and nothing is too much trouble.
If you are visiting the St Lucia area this should be your destination of choice. Handily situated for all of the activities the town has to offer, Santa Lucia is a haven set in beautiful gardens with spacious, comfortable rooms and delicious breakfasts to suit everyone.

We stayed at Santa Lucia for two nights with our 7 year old son. Our room was very clean and comfortable. We were wonderfully taken care of during our stay. We were provided with recommendations and maps for what to do and where to eat, and even given an umbrella, beach chairs and a cooler bag to make our visit to the nearby beach more comfortable. The breakfasts (served on the balcony overlooking the lovely garden) were delicious, by far the nicest I have experienced at any guesthouse to date. The staff even made little heart shaped flapjacks for my son, who was so impressed by this that he actually cried when it was time for us to leave! Thank you Santa Lucia for a wonderful, but all-too-brief, stay. We will be back.
