Highly recommended”

Jorg and his family are truly the most hospitable it hosts, and take such care and joy in making sure you love St. Lucia as much as they clearly do. The house is beautiful, the beds comfortable, and Jorg is very quick to help you arrange whatever activity you would like to do. I highly recommend this spot for anyone visiting St. Lucia.

Marvelous”

We (my girlfriend & me) stayed for 4 nights At Maputaland. We initially planned for 2 nights but then stayed longer because it was so wonderful. Jörg and Gisela are very caring hosts. We were supplied with a cooling Box, snorkeling gear and other beach equipment during our stay (free of charge). The room was spacious, clean and safe with an aircondition. Thanks to a generator we had electricity even during load shedding. So basically: we would and will visit again! On our trip to South Africa this Guest House has set unmatched high standards.

Amazing Stay!”

We were blown away upon our arrival and wish we'd had more time to stay! The patio/garden is a little slice of heaven, with a pool, tons of greenery, and lovely decorations. Plan on taking your time during breakfast and soaking up the view along with the sunshine. Gisela was very welcoming and took time to talk with us and help plan/book activities such as a boat ride and night safari. Our stay in St Lucia was the highlight of our trip!

Absolutely the best in St. Lucia!”

You will not be disappointed if you choose Maputaland! Gisella and Yorg are excellent hosts with deep knowledge of the area! They will arrange excursions for you and tell you what to expect. They will loan you snorkeling gear and beach mats/umbrella and tell you which days & times are most favorable. Breakfast made to order is excellent and they have water and drinks plus ice cream bars available for a small charge. You feel like a pampered guest in their home. The lovely garden is a delight. We enjoyed it all and left feeling like we had made new friends!

Man wird von Anfang sehr freundlich aufgenommen und bekommt viele super Tipps für die Zeit in St. Lucia. Das Gästehaus ist mit sehr viel Liebe eingerichtet worden. Auch mit unserem Zimmer (Nr. 4) mit großem Bad waren wir sehr zufrieden. Am Frühstücksbuffet gibt es eine gute Auswahl und es wurde immer sehr lecker gekocht. Abends sind wir gerne draußen gesessen und haben die Atmosphäre im schönen Außenbereich/Gartenbereich genossen.

** Ausgezeichnetes Gästehaus im traumhaften St. Lucia **”

Gisela und ihre Familie führen ein ausgezeichnetes Gästehaus in traumhafter Lage. Wir hätten am liebsten unserem gesamten Urlaub dort verbracht. Die Zimmer haben eine perfekte Größe und sind blitzblank sauber. Öffnet man die Türe erwartet einen ein wunderschöner Garten mit Pool an den auch der Frühstücksbereich grenzt, so dass man schön im Freien sitzen kann. Das Frühstück ist sagenhaft gut. Es bietet mit Eiern, Speck, Kartoffelpuffer, Käse, Wurst, Müsli, Jogurt, Obstsalat, verschiedenen Marmeladensorten, Croissants und kleinem Gebäck alles was das Herz begehrt. Man kann sich selbständig an kalten Getränken, Weinen und Eis bedienen und in eine Liste eintragen. Die Äffchen in den Bäumen sorgen stets für gute Stimmung. Alles sind sehr sehr nett und zuvorkommend. Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt wirklich unheimlich genossen. Vielen Dank! P.S. Wir lieben Schatzi!!
