Nestled in the midst of an exceptional World Heritage Site, St Lucia Wetlands Guest House is the ideal destination for those travelers looking to find tranquility and comfort whilst exploring the magical beach, estuary, and game parks around us. Our guest experience begins with welcoming drinks and a comprehensive orientation of the area. Highlights amongst the many activities in St Lucia and the surrounding areas include a sunset boat cruise down the estuary, featuring an abundance of hippos, crocodiles, and bird life; a day-trip through South Africa's first World Heritage Site, a "Big Four" game park known as the iSimangaliso Wetland Park; and of course our beautiful beaches along the Indian Ocean in St Lucia and at the renowned Cape Vidal. At the house, our guests find a dedicated team committed to providing an excellent experience for each and every guest, all the while allowing them privacy and exclusive use of the house, its balconies and patios, lounge, pool and garden. We take pride in our full breakfast, served daily, with options for every visitor's tastes. Indeed, South African hospitality at its best.

Thank you Jet for the lovely review. St Lucia and surrounds does justify 2-3 nights when wanting to see as much as possible. However the tranquility of the town and the walking trails through the bush makes everyone's stay seem too short. Warm Regards, Colin

Hello Chris, Thank you for your interest and valued support of St Lucia Wetlands Guesthouse. We regret to inform you that over the requested period we are fully booked and will not be able to accommodate you and your new bride. Regarding your requests on thing to do. None of the St Lucia properties are on the beach as our village is surrounded by park on one side and indigenous bush on the other. The beach is however 1.5 km form the residential area. There are walking trails, horse riding, boat cruises, game drives (self or organized) that can be taken to cape vidal where there is a beautiful unspoilt beach. There are plenty of restaurants in the area and as a destination neither you nor your wife will be disappointed. I would comfortably recommend any of the top 5 Trip Advisor properties as they are all very good. Wishing you all the best with your travel arrangements. Warm regards, Colin.
