It was the 2nd time we stayed in this lovely guest house. Joerg and his family are very nice and hospitable and help with everything. And another reason we came back here is definitely the breakfast. See you next time.

Our home away from home in St Lucia. We loved our stay there! Hosts Jörg and Gisela share their knowledge about the area with passion and joy. They are most welcoming and prepare a copious delicious breakfast. The room is well-appointed, very clean, and comfortable, and the tropical garden lush and peaceful. Highly recommend this amazing guest house in an unparalleled location.

The place was clean, breakfast served was good and support/assistance from staff was great. They went out of their way to make our stay as memorable and as comfortable as possible. They assisted with "Things to do in St. Lucia" which was great for a person who hasn't been to the place.

This family owned guest house was a home away from home. The staff were warm and hospitable, accommodating and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed the full English breakfast served daily. Highly recommend!

The hosts went out of their way to assist us, the rooms and facilities were top-notch. I would recommend Maputaland Guest house to all my friends and I can't wait to go back. This was an ideal set up if you don't want to make your own breakfast in the morning. The kitchen and braai facilities makes it really convenient for you to make your own lunch/dinner or you can pop over to the close by restaurants.
