Nicely appointed rooms , bathrooms a little cramped due to the double basins so not much space for toiletries but very comfortable overall. The Ocean facing rooms offer spectacular views of an unspoilt beach and Ocean quite a climb down from the guesthouse so only for the fit but with a sturdy deck and wooden stairs. Excellent breakfasts and not...

Suite 1 - amazing view. Comfortable bed, cozy sitting room and well equipped kitchen. Best breakfast ever, Andre and Mathilda went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and comfortable. They made well informed suggestions regarding the best restaurants and what to explore. Staff are extremely friendly. Location is ideal for visiting towns from Mossel Bay to Plettenberg Bay....

Can access the beach directly from the guest house. Staff welcomed us professionally and were super on the ball. Great breakfast and a 1 minute drive from town where all the little pubs...

Simply perfect! Close to nice restaurants like "the girls" or "salinas", outdoor activities on the other side of the river and view on the beach! It is very quite during the night and the breakfast is simply great.

Our stay was unfortunately far too short and should have stayed here much longer than we did. Certainly our first choice for future stays in the Garden Route area. Rooms were perfect. Cooked Breakfast variety and options far exceeded our expectations - menu was offered. Location was great, and tranquil. Well recommended.

We rented three rooms and an enormous living room/kitchen area; the guest house is at the top of steep steps down to the beautiful beach. We walked miles on the beach which is stunning, though apparently shouldnt swim out past waist height. The forest walk was also enjoyable. The rooms were large and well equipped. The breakfast was fine -...

We were a large group of friends and they met our needs exceedingly well. Beautiful rooms, nicely appointed, most with fantastic views of the ocean and the passing dolphins. There is an easily accessible pathway down to the beach.
