Very good affordable well equipped and clean accommodation. Information on what to do and map of area given by Imelda always very helpful. We would not have know that the western shore of Lake St. Lucia was now open to the public and the trip there was excellent with sightings of buffalo, rhino etc.

Stayed in a small chalet for 3 nights while we explored the St Lucia wetlands. Location is great away from the main strip for some peace and quiet, but near enough the shops still. Close to the jetty for the boat tours too. Simple but well maintained with friendly attentive staff, its great value for self catering (no need to...

I liked that the Wilds was not on the main drag, and that it seemed every room had its own private patio. The manager is on the premises and was pretty friendly. Our room had 2 AC units with only 1 working, but where it was positioned (in one of the two bedrooms) made it impossible to keep the inside...

St Lucia Wilds is a great place to stay to enjoy the wetlands. The apartments are well equipped, with every kitchen utensil you could need. They are clean and tidy and are serviced daily. Good satellite TV channels (all the sport channels). Nice outdoor seating area plus a shared pool. Lovely after a long, hot day. Friendly and helpful owner.

Large appartment for the money, everything is there. But no view of the lake or anything else. You can walk to town (beware of the hippos). Ok place to stay. Bird forrest next door. Go watch the hippos!

St. Lucia Wilds is a wonderful getaway I'm the edge of McKenzie Street, the town's main road. The location is fantastic because it is far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the main part of town, but it is also an easy walk away from all the downtown shopping and restaurants, which was incredibly convenient for my wife...

Nice location, nice staff, many useful information about the area, excellent accomodation e good price. We have been there only for 3 days but we experienced a total wellness. The natural reserve is not far and all the main services are close to the place.

Everything is good. The flats are well equipped and well maintained. Hosts were pleasant, Wifi worked and the gardens were lovely. Hippos wander about the town and the garden but we didn't see one in the garden.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The small coastal town St Lucia is uniquely situated inside a World Heritage Site, the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, which makes it an ideal base to experience our unspoilt natural heritage in one of the oldest, most diverse reserves in the world. Watch the sun rise over the sea and set over the lake in one day. Experience a game drive, snorkel/swim in the sea, birding, fishing, a boat trip on the lake and short walking trails in a nature reserve from here or just relax and enjoy the sunshine, clean air and tropical forest smells and sounds. We are located in the main street away from the busy noisy town centre, still within walking distance to shops etc. Units are set in a natural tranquil garden on the bank of the St Lucia Lake. All units have access to the garden on lake side via a communal path through the premises. Units have no view of the lake. You can enjoy the scattered front garden view of the lake/reeds, relax on a lounger chair under the trees or cool down in the swimming pool. We provide lots of information and map of this area. The garden is visited by resident wildlife and we share our living space with all creatures. We try to maintain a healthy food chain by using environmentally friendly products. We offer self-catering holiday accommodation, with owner family living on property. We have 3 joined garden units with each little garden separated by plants. 1 Affordable (budget type) flatlet with steps. Units are standard, comfortable, no-nonsense, very well equipped, clean and neat. You will feel at home. All opening windows and doors have insect netting protection. Parking is under roof cover on site at car port. Children: we offer a tree house with slide and toys for small children. Swimming pool with fence but not child proof. Children must be supervised at all times. We provide all bedding and linen, 1 bath towel pp, toilet paper, cutlery, crockery, cooking utensils, pots and pans, dish towel, cloth and sponge and dish wash soap. Cleaning service included, once daily in the mornings. ... more   less
