We stayed at African Ambience for a weekend get-away and was received with such hospitality and warmth. Hennie & Ilze went out of their way to spoil us and make us feel welcome. We were treated like old friends. The rooms are neat and clean and very quiet. Hennie provided all the necessary information about things to do in and around Saint Lucia and they also assist with the necessary bookings. We were taken on a night drive to view the Hippos roaming the streets at night! We recommend you stay at African Ambience the next time you visit Saint Lucia.

I spent one night at African Ambience in St Lucia. Henny and Elza are authentically warm hosts. Henny made sure that I got to taste the entire St Lucia experience (Hipo walking at night on the St Lucia streets, Camaleons hiding in their garden) and Elza woke up very early to cook home made muffin for teh breakfast. The infrastructure of African Ambience is beautiful. Every single detail in their guest house seems to come from a place of giving. My stay was briefly, but I felt at home very quickly. If it happens that you go to St. Lucia, please consider to stay at African Ambience, You will not only enjoy a comfortable room, yummy breakfast, you will also get to meet Henny and Elza and experience their authentic warm hospitality.

A very good choice in St. Lucia, the hosts welcomed me very friendly, there is a beautiful garden with a small pool to relax, the rooms are spacious and cozy. Within walking distance to the centre, just take care of the hippos at night, which sometimes pass the road next to the guesthouse (which is actually a cool thing!). The breakfast ist delicious, with home made bread, freshly prepared eggs the way you like it. There is a honesty bar too. I would choose African Ambience Guest House again for my next visit to St. Lucia. Thank you very much Hennie and Ilze.
