Property Information:

Set amid lush green lawns and indigenous trees, Dave Place St Lucia offers rustic and affordable budget and backpacker accommodation. The level of service and hospitality is excellent and we have qualified staff pertaining to the local environment and animal life, living in this area for most of their lives.

The facility is based in a double-story building, all under one huge thatched roof which gives Dave’s Place a tropical look/feel. Under different management is a swimming pool with super tube and a restaurant/pub only a few feet away from us. All is there for your use and pleasure! Dave’s Place includes 2 dorm rooms downstairs, 1 dorm room, 4 twin rooms and 2 triple rooms upstairs. All includes communal shower and toilet facilities that are split between men’s and women’s’. All the rooms are furnished with single beds and linen is provided.

Guests can choose to dine at the restaurant/pub next to us, where wooden decking extends dining to the outdoors or you can make use of our fully-equipped kitchen with ample seating place to enjoy your meals. We have a wooden deck upstairs with a full view onto the neighbouring swimming pool. And for relaxation we have cushy couches and local TV to watch, or you can gather at our bon fire area outside to socialize. There are plenty of local restaurants and pubs nearby, should you choose to go there.

We also offer 12 camping sites, complete with plug points, amongst manicured lawns and under the shade and shelter of our many trees. Braai (BBQ) facilities are provided and the ablution is close-by.

We are situated only 50 meters away from the road leading to the jetty where the boats dock for the Hippo & Crocodile Tours.

This budget accommodation is perfectly suited for groups and families.

    We stayed in the main chalet and the place is very run down, both inside and outside surroundings. The place is NOTHING like the pictures online. We shared a large chalet with a large group that seemed like a family and they were extremely noisy till 2am and we're promptly up and noisy at 5am. Manager/owner apologized
