First time we have stayed there. We were pleasantly surprised by the staff friendliness. The unit was nice with beautiful views and surface clean with everything you would need. Equipment is outdated but functional. Also make sure you bring your own cleaning liquid, cloths and sponges.

However, there are alot of 'rules' and some do not make any sense whatsoever. You get a feeling that the owners are trying to chastise naughty children. Which is extremely off putting.

Overall we only required a place to sleep at night (2 night's). We would go back but not sure if it would be for an extended visit.

The staff at Stokkiesdraai st Lucia is the best they were very helpful, The accommodation is basic but very nice. Stokkiesdraai is situated close to shops and restaurants and a short drive to the beach and estuary. In general Stokkiesdraai is good value for money.

Room tip: quiet peaceful

Stokkiesdraai is in such an amazing location, we went in SA Winter and St Lucia was still busy, there were multiple bars/restaurants that always had a crowd! The first night we had arrived we saw hippos on our lawn, on the morning there were monkeys running around and you could see the estuary from the garden!

People have such a negative opinion about this place but I disagree, the owner is eccentric but polite and defiantly entertaining! The apartments are a little tired, but they did the job and were cleaned daily.

Trust the people from the North to bring the bad weather.. St Lucia hadn't seen rain like it in over 30 years! So if we can enjoy it with numerous thunder storms (which were incredible to see!) and the poring down rain, then I'm sure you can!

Room tip: Ask for a room looking onto the estuary!

We were planning on only staying two nights but ended up staying here for 6 nights.
Stokkiesdraai is perfectly situated if you want to visit lots of places in this area.
Debbie was also very helpfull to give us advice (and tell us some jokes ).
The room was basic but price-quality very nice. The garden rooms have a nice view of the sunset over the lake.

I am firmly of the opinion that most reviews are driven by a single poor experience, they therefore need to be taken with a pinch (or 2) of salt. The fact that there were so few reviews needs to be taken as a positive, we had a lovely time in St Lucia and at Stokkiesdraai.

Debbie, the manager/proprietor has had some bad reviews here, she is somewhat eccentric, but we liked her ... and her forthright views.

The buildings are made of uninspiring red brick and are a bit tired, but they are functional and serve the purpose.

We had a lake view apartment for a week. What a great location to base our exploration of the St Lucia area.

Location was brilliant, not only very close to shops and bars, but overlooking the estuary, we had hippos, Duiker (antelope) and monkeys on the lawn, exotic birds in the trees and a chameleon on the patio.

Room tip: Get a lake view apartment, it's quieter and there's fantastic wildlife on the patio

Very poor Management. Room 1 has a problem shower upstairs that causes the entire unit to flood. According to staff it has been like this for years. Each client is fined for the condition of the flat when leaving. Management has no people skills whatsover, more effection shown for her pig than clients. Our groups will never stay here again. Owner seems uninterested to fix problems
