Couple from Brora , United Kingdom Jan 2016

Once again we had a fantastic stay Zandili was great as usual we will try be back next year 👍😄😄

From Brighton, United Kingdom Feb 2013

We spent 4 nights here - enough to visit Cape Vidal, Umfolozi game reserve, do a hippo boat trip and visit the croc centre. Its perfectly situated with only a 5 min walk to the main street with shops and restaurants or to the boat jetty. The street the house is in itself is very peaceful though. There was loads of room for us - 2 families with children (9, 6 & 2). We all loved the pool which was clean and well kept. It is lovely how the master bedrooms open out onto the pool. The house is clean and well equipped. The sheltered outdoor eating area means we could eat outside whatever the weather. The owners are particularly helpful - in particular posting back to us an iPod left behind!

From Frankfurt, Germany Mar 2011

It was excellent and the best choise we ever had. Would like to come back at any time. The owners are very nice people and Zandile is the " jewel" of this house.

Definitely recommended Anonymous, South Africa 24 February 2011 The house is very spacious and conveniently located. Everything was withing walking distance. It was a good starting point to do our day trips to the wetland park and the beach. The maid did a great job. We really enjoyed our stay and will come back if we get a chance. The pool is kept in excellent condition. We would recommend it to anybody travelling with young children to go there and just relax.

This property is stunning. Words and photos cant really describe how beautiful, unique, and comfortable it is. The amenities are very nice, the service is excellent, and it is ideally located in St. Lucia- close to everything we wanted to see and do. We took my 80-year-old in-laws for a holiday here, and they both agreed it was the best trip of their lives. The kids were equally thrilled with the place. We all fell in love with this property, and would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone.

An exceptional property, both in its location and its stunning rooms. We wandered around each room in awe when we arrived...and were still doing it 2 weeks later! The housekeeper Zandile was lovely and both my young children were in tears as we left. The property reaches across all generations as my parents were equally as captivated as my children - a superb holiday home in an amazing place... as it says on the website you wont be disappointed!
