What an absolutely amazing little gem nestled in the leafy town of St. Lucia. The rooms are suburb and the breakfast absolutely delicious. We felt right at home with Aunt Joyce, and her wonderful staff who made our stay memorable with our baby girl. Aunt Joyce didn’t hesitate to grant us evening access to the kitchen to prepare our daughter’s meals and was exceptionally helpful all-round. Afri-African Khaya-Home is your home away from home, it truly embodies the name.

Absolutely nothing we can complain from, except perhaps, demolishing the whole place and converting it in to a 5 Star Hotel! Owner and stuff - excellent! Privacy - comfortable...but it depends on the guests, in the end of the day. Food - well...it's not a private chief... but they really make an effort! All in all 9 out of 10. Thank You for you hospitality!

Afrikhaya Guesthouse breathes the typical African atmosphere around the house and the garden , while the rooms are contemporary and perfect equipped. Joyce and her team are really good at what they do: hospitable, informative, good- humoured and ready to support us in any sense of the word. They are an exemple of how you can feel at home quickly. Chapeau Joyce ! The 4 Dutchmen

We were welcomed by Joyce and felt immediately at home, it was also nice to be able to have a conversation in Dutch. Upon our arrival, Joyce proposed to go through our planning of the next following days and gave recommendations. She also phoned the office for our Whale trip to make some last checks. We also enjoyed the best breakfast we had during the whole trip, with very fresh food & fruits. Thank you Joyce for the amazing experience in St-Lucia!

I came to St Lucia not knowing the area at all, but Joyce (your lovely host) had brochures for nearby activities prepared and made great recommendations, both for activities and to eat out! The rooms were beautifully furnished, everyday cleaned and equipped with an aircondition, which made the time I spent in my room very comfortable. Nevertheless, I spent only very little time in my room, because there was a crystal clear pool just a few steps from my terrace, where I spent an afternoon sun bathing. Last but not least, what enjoyed the most at Afrikhaya was the rich breakfast I had every morning. Great choices between different food and freshly made eggs, bacon, whatever you want… I absolutely recommend this accommodation for your stay in St. Lucia and wish Joyce all the best!

This place is one of the best places we ever stayed! We really loved the rooms and Joyce is the best host possible. She will help you out with gamedrives, restaurants and all other questions you will have. The rooms are really beautiful and we were with 4 couples, so we saw 4 of the 5 rooms, and they were all really big and comfortable. The beds were really good too. We also loved the little town of St Lucia, where you can walk te relaxed streets during the day, but not at night, because the hippos will graze in the town, so it's best to take the car after dark. We will definitely be back at this wonderful place!

Excellent service right from the get go. Before arrival we were running late and Joyce phoned to check up on us. She also organized our extracurricular activities all we needed to do was pay, for our safari we were picked up and dropped off at the gate. Breakfast was excellent and healthy, servicing staff was fantastic. Could not have choose a better place to spend our honeymoon.

Greater Johannesburg, South Africa1 contribution
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!
