Everything is perfect in this house (quiet, good location, top comfort, clean...), and Dieter is very helpful if you want to book activities or find good pups/restaurants. Like a father for his kids! Really recommended.

The rooms dated and need a deal of TLC...They were however quite clean apart from the odd squashed mosquito on the walls. The common lounge/tv room area is ruled by the owner's dogs...The room smells heavily of wet dog and the furniture is full of dog hair. We are dog lovers, but still found this a bit disturbing as we... More

Great location and felt like a home away from home. The owner and her family were very welcoming and accommodating making our stay a real pleasure. Rooms are of a good size and layout with access straight onto a small but beautiful garden. Ambient lighting around the garden and trees make for a good place to chill with a beer... More

I stayed at Maputaland Guest House for 4 nights over Easter weekend and really enjoyed my stay. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, especially for first time visitors to St. Lucia. Gisele, the owner, went out of her way to ensure that I had the best possible experience and even booked all of my activities for me. The rooms... More

The room was great. The house was great. The food (breakfast) was great. I felt very much at home. The accommodation is not on the main street. Its about a 8-10 minute walk into town which is no big deal. I would recommend this accommodation.

Our family of 8 had a very nice experience. Peter and Gisela were marvelous hosts, providing great suggestions on things to do and see. The property, as well as the town of St. Lucia were charming. We would definitely make a return visit.

A fantastic place to stay. A great family atmosphere. The hosts, Peter and Gisela were inviting and helpful at providing useful information about the area. They were particularly welcoming to our three children aged 8, 11 & 14 and made them feel at ease. The breakfasts, both cold and cooked were excellent, as was the never ending coffee supply. Relaxing... More
