Latest Reviews

High comfort & very nice host
The Guest House was very comfortable and did not lack in amenities. Very close to all of the restaurants and appeared to be safe for visitors ( walk at night - no gates necessary on the driveway etc.) The Manager (Bruce was extremely helpful). But ... the hot water was a bit erratic and some of the facilities needed replacing. A very pleasant stay- would go back again.

Take the N2 - North from Durban - or South from Johannesburg turn off at the R618 to Mtubatuba and follow the signs to St. Lucia.
(Approximately 25km)

On arriving in St. Lucia cross the bridge over the Estuary. At the t-junction turn right into Mc Kenzie Street - pass Engen Garage on left pass Spar on left.

When you see the fruit market on your right - turn left into Dolfyn Street - take the second right into Pelican Street.
