    At the Wetlands Guest House you are truly treated as a guest. Colin and Natalie could not have been more gracious and attentive for our entire 6 night stay. They are both very good at making you feel at home and are genuinely warm and generous...

When you enter our house it immediately becomes your home for the full duration of your stay. The house itself was built out of a labour of love by the previous owner. All the wood and parquet flooring came from his farm. Since 1996 we have maintained his passion and have passed it on to all the improvements we have made over the years. The garden is second to no other garden in the region and reflects this love.
I have had the pleasure of going to school in Canada and Switzerland. I have worked in hotels, lodges and I was an overland guide for 8 years which has given me a lot of knowledge about South Africa and the African continent as a whole. Ich kann ein bisschen Dinglish sprechen, und bin in der Lage , mit Ihnen zu kommunizieren, wenn wir beide langsam zu sprechen. Mon franglais est très bonne qui aide quand on parle aux invités français qui veulent prendre une pause de parler en anglais. Met 'n langsaam gepraat Afrikaans is ek in staat om 'n prettige gesprek met die Nederlandse en Vlaamse te he. I look forward to hosting you.
St Lucia Wetlands Guesthouse is set in the quiet and tranquil residential area of this beautifully little town. Guests are able to freely walk around during the day exploring the roads between some really beautiful houses. At night you can walk to the restaurants no more than 15 minutes away but take note that hippos may be grazing on the pavements when you return.
