This place is simply amazing. You are greeted at the door by the owners, your luggage is carted off to your room while you sit on the terrace with a glass of wine and a view to die for. The owners chat to you, make you feel at home, make sure you have dinner reservations for the evening and then...

We had a great time at that beautiful guesthouse. It feels like home, which is the best rating I can think of. Never stayed at a more impressive house and the breakfast is amazing. Linda and Ole are taking good care of their guests and they are very nice hosts! What more can you as for? Just see it for...

Linda and Ole are perfect hosts and the staff make you feel welcome and at home. The guest suites were extremely comfortable and the breakfast exceptional. Highly recommend this B&B as a stop on the Garden Route.

Greeted and cared for by such a friendly couple (and their dogs), we felt completely welcome and enjoyed the time here. They have a guestbook for everyone to sign, which was different from the other B&Bs we stayed at, and really makes you feel like they care about their guests at Aquavit. The room was nice, with a view of...

We stayed at Aquavit for two nights at the very end of August and we could not have been happier. We drove along the Garden Route from Cape Town. It's quite a long drive and it had been raining for much of it, so being welcomed into this gorgeous guest house was exactly what we needed. Linda and Ole invited...

This gorgeous house in Plett Bay was a fantastic place to stay. The owners Linda and Ole were excellent hosts and should be lauded for their painstaking effort to model their house as a B&B from the outset. However, a few things made the stay uncomfortable. The floor heating in our room was not evenly spread. The breakfast though good,...

We had the most delightful stay for 3 nights and just wish we had longer. Ole and Linda were the perfect hosts booking restaurants, trips, taxis and even accommodation later in our holiday. The accommodation was top quality and the attention to detail was fantastic. You have to try the amazing pancakes, however all the breakfasts were delicious. This B&B...

My husband and I stayed for 7 nights. We arrived in a beautifully furnished guesthouse - each corner bearing interesting artifacts, stunning sculptures, tranquil decor and inspiring paintings. The service by Ole and Linda and their delightful staff was of highest quality and the breakfasts were healthy, scrumptious and beautifully presented. The room we occupied was spacious, very comfortable and...

I stayed at Aquavit 4 nights in June. The accommodation is stunning , beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The hosts Linda and Ole were very accommodating when we arrived very late. Linda recommended a very good restaurant and went as far as making sure we had a booking for dinner at the restaurant on our arrival .I recommend Aquavit for...

Our stay here was so incredible, we didn't want to leave. Linda and Ole were warm, friendly and hospitable & the guest house is furnished beautifully. Breakfast, views, the dogs were all perfect and the restaurants and sights they recommended were some of our favorites in South Africa.
