Little Eden St Lucia
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 July 2014

Little Eden is a perfect name for this place. We had the pleasure of being in an apartment overlooking the pool and the bush. The view is amazing and the bushbuck sometimes graze on the front lawn in the early morning hours. The apartment itself was clean and very comfortable and Bianca and Helga are such wonderful hosts. I would recommend little Eden for an unforgettable holiday.

I visit St Lucia often, and have tried many of the accommodation options. No one compares to Little Eden. Simply for their passion. They go out of their way to make you feel welcome and are true ambassadors for the town/area. Accommodation is very clean, comfortable, and is set close to the forest with a great view of Mapelane. Guests have access to Ndiza Lodge's bar and breakfast area, which adds to the value. Bianca is a great host and adds small details, such as making sure she is available to greet you upon arrival, explains all the activities and information about the town, and there's even tomorrow's weather report printed out in each room. Small details, but they all add up! It's the perfect spot to relax in the best town in South Africa! Highly recommended!

We've been for 11 days in south africa and the "Liitle Eden" in Saint Lucia was defintely the best accommondation we had. Our room "Impunzi" was a complete apparment with everthing you need and it was very clean and comfortable.
Heila and Bianca, our hosts, are very helpful and lovely even when were just talking "nonsense" ;)

You should take the Hippo and Croc Boat tour and go whale watching. The local walk with a guide were more a bird-watching tour, what was not of our interest. You cann book these tours at Little Eden but they not responsible for them.

And take the "hippo at night"-warning seriously! I saw one in the garden over the way!
And forget about moskitos in June. It's fresh in the morning, 20 degrees celsius at day and the haven't had malaria for years. And as Heila said: Moskitos? In Winter? The are none!

Room Tip: For a couple take "Impunzi"

We stayed at Little Eden in June 2014 for 4 Nights. The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. The apartment was a 2 Bedroom self-catering apartment, and was large and very cosy. The kitchen was very well equipped and clean and tidy. The apartment was serviced daily and the staff were accommodating and cleaned according to our schedule. It was very central and close to all attractions in St Lucia. A special thank you to Amanda and Bianca as they made us feel at home and went out of there way to ensure our stay was pleasurable. Thank you also for notifying us that we had forgotten a bag, and then posting it through. If you going to St Lucia, Little Eden is definitely the place you should stay!!!

We stayed 4 nights in the newly rennovated top floor apparment. The new kitchen is great and the unit is very comfortable. We felt very at home here. The views are spectacular. One nicht we even saw Hippos in the garden. Quite an experiance! We will hopefully be back for a longer stay.
We can only recommend staying at Little Eden.

We stayed at Little Eden, St Lucia, KwaZulu-Natal from 31/05/2014 to 01/06/2014. This is a fantastic 3 bed-roomed self-catering apartment with a stunning sea view. Ideally situated near all the attractions, restaurants and shops.

Had a very comfortable stay at Little Eden. Heila was there to settle us in. We were two couple with one toddler. The unit (Imvubu) was well equipped (including Braii facility) and very clean/tidy, serviced daily (staff adjusted their timings accordingly to our schedule). Private entrance. Excellent value for money. Cosy and quiet neighbourhood. Few minutes drive from Estuary, although our daily night drives in the hope for Hippos were in vain. Good beach spots.
