Company info

In July 2016 Jan and Fiona moved from Pretoria to settle in St Lucia. Here, they have fallen in love with the tropical climate and the beautiful surroundings, and are passionate about sharing their home with guests from all around the world. They are happy to offer any travel advice you may need, and can help arrange fishing trips, Game Drives, Whale Watching as well as a variety of other activities in and around St Lucia so that you can fully explore the unique and diverse. They are both passionate anglers and have earned their provincial colours for fishing. With a passion for fishing, it was a natural progression for the couple to leave their home in the inland, and move to the coast to live their dream.
