    Highly recommended Accommodation in St Lucia

    Traveller Review Award Winner

Our guest house is located in the beautiful town of St Lucia on the Zululand coast of KwaZulu-Natal.

St Lucia is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and for good reason – the area boasts one of the largest estuaries in the world and is home to an incredible range of wildlife species, including hippos, crocodiles and a variety of bird and marine life. There are also a number of gorgeous beaches, coastal forests, rolling grasslands and game parks to explore in the region.

Explore St Lucia

We are situated in a quiet suburb of St Lucia, just one kilometre from the estuary, and within walking distance from the town centre. For those interested in deep-sea fishing, we offer a charter service on a 24ft sports fishing boat. Our boat is equipped with all tackle, rods and a toilet.

    Review from 19 Feb 2022Relaxing, upmarket and friendly home away from home, excellent hostsWe spent a week at this wonderful lodge located just off the main beat in St Lucia, 2 mins to restaurants, 5 mins to the beach.
