At Artist's Retreat it really is true that you arrive as strangers and leave as friends! We had a great week break there over December. Excellent home cooked breakfasts prepared with care and love and nice variety! Room was very comfortable and clean - never seen such clean linen in my life! Nice deck for a sundowner or a braai...

We spent two days in this quaint town enjoying lovely walks and eating delicious seafood. The owner goes out of her way to make one feel welcome. Clean white linen and very comfortable bed. Very clean room. Remember to take own shampoo, hair dryer.

Cilla's warm smile and big hug welcomed us as we stepped through the door. We were at ease and felt right at home from the minute we arrived. Our accommodation was as expected, comfortable, clean and modest. An absolute refreshing stay, enjoying the birds and sunlight in the pretty garden. Very generous breakfast serving, with a different variety on each...

I was in Jacobs Bay for a wedding and ended up staying two nights. From the moment I booked I received nothing but a helpful and warm experience. The rooms had everything I needed and for once I was able to just relax and enjoy my stay. Cilla makes her guests feel welcome from the first second you arrive. Each...

If you do not necessarily need a sea view, this B&B will be perfect. It is centrally situated on the West Coast, close to all the attractions, but offers a quiet night's rest. We were very well received and made to feel at home. Breakfast was also excellent. I can recommend the Artist's retreat for a west coast meander.
