After a long journey from Plettenberg bay this one night stay was just the ticket before my 12 hour flight back to the UK! Delicious bed (and bath) with a view of the sea (both which were quite hard to get out of!) and a lovely breakfast to boot. Only a shame I couldn't stay longer....

Wow, that was the first that came up when we entered our room! You just can feel the sea when lying in bed - great! Its an excellent place to stay when on the way to the cape. Great location, great room, great view, great hosts - at an aboslutely reasonable rate.

Very nice rooms with a good view. Staff were very helpful and breakfast good. The steep road up to the guesthouse helped to shed a few pounds after a really good steak at Dixie's restaurant. Definitely worth a visit

We have had a wonderful stay in this guest house. The staff was very friendly and provided us not only with delicious breakfast every day, but also with helpful tips for activities and recommendations as well as booking for dinner if needed. The rooms were very clean, modern and comfortable.

Our large room had an all glass wall facing the bay maybe 60 feet above the road, making for wonderful views. There is an elevator for luggage. Breakfast was great, in...
