The primary reason I'd think most people come to St Lucia is the park that the town is surrounded by. However the town itself has plenty to interest that same traveler. Before you cross the bridge is the visitor center and the marsh/river. The ocean...More

About
Description
The small coastal town St Lucia is uniquely situated inside a World Heritage Site, the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, which makes it an ideal base to experience our unspoilt natural heritage in one of the oldest, most ...More diverse reserves in the world. Watch the sun rise over the sea and set over the lake in one day. Experience a game drive, snorkel/swim in the sea, birding, fishing, a boat trip on the lake and short walking trails in a nature reserve from here or just relax and enjoy the sunshine, clean air and tropical forest smells and sounds. We are located in the main street away from the busy noisy town centre, still within walking distance to shops etc. Units are set in a natural tranquil garden on the bank of the St Lucia Lake. All cottages have access to the garden on lake side via a communal path through the premises. Cottages have no view of the lake. You can enjoy the scattered front garden view of the lake/reeds, relax on a lounger chair under the trees or cool down in the swimming pool. We provide lots of information and map of this area. The garden is visited by resident wildlife and we share our living space with all creatures. We try to maintain a healthy food chain by using environmentally friendly products. We offer self-catering holiday accommodation, with owner family living on property. We have 3 joined garden units with each little garden separated by plants. 1 Affordable (budget type) flatlet (backpack friendly) with steps. Cottages are standard, comfortable, no-nonsense, very well equipped, clean and neat. You will feel at home. All opening windows and doors have insect netting protection. Parking is under roof cover on site at car port. Children: we offer a tree house with slide and toys for small children. Swimming pool with fence but not child proof. Children must be supervised at all times. We provide all bedding and linen, 1 bath towel pp, toilet paper, cutlery, crockery, cooking utensils, pots and pans, dish towel, cloth and sponge and dish wash soap. Cleaning service included, once daily in the mornings. Less
