My wife, daughter(four years old) and I recently had the privilege of spending five nights in St Lucia. We stayed at Afrikhaya Guest House...whilst we loved St Lucia and its surrounds...the guest house was the real privilege. From arrival right through to departure we felt Joyce and her team had our best interest and experience at heart. We were given insightful and knowledgeable information about the area, they even booked a boat cruise on our behalf. Our room was impeccably cleaned daily and the breakfasts were fresh, tasty and healthy. On the third day it was my daughters birthday...this is where Joyce and her team really came alive...they appeared out the kitchen with a cake and sang Happy Birthday for her...this is just one example of the numerous personal touches we experienced. If I owned property in St Lucia...I would still go stay at Afrikhaya just to revisit the experience Joyce gave us. I can't praise them enough

We loved the place! Beautifully decorated, very clean and comfortable, located in a tropical garden with funny monkeys. There is a lot to do In the St.Lucia area. And the nature reserves (especially iSimangalido wetland park) are one of our favorites reserves in SA. We love hippos! The trips Joyce booked for us were perfect! She takes the time to understand what we wanted to do in a short time and her suggestions were always spot on. Joyce and Marcel are wonderful hosts and made our stay very special. We would love to come back!
