Stayed in villa 2. The location is perfect for me. Nice and quiet. Own privacy. The owner is very kind & warm :-). What i would like improvements on is the comfort of the beds. Stricter rules about smoking inside the house as we could not use one room smelling of cigarettes. If someone is staying longer than one day,... More

There is clearly a total disinterest in providing any degree of guest service by the owner of this establishment. Rooms are not prepared prior to guest arrival. There is no TV service whatsoever. There is no wi-fi. No hand soap provided; crockery is chipped;the only aspect that works effectively is the credit card transaction upon booking. Don't believe the photos... More

Very professional and friendly staff that waited for us while we were running late. Spacious, clean rooms that are basic but very comfortable and inviting. The sound of the ocean put us to sleep. Great experience and we will be coming back.

We arrived quite late and left fairly early on our whirlwind tour of SA. We were 5 friends travelling together and needed a big place to sleep. We were greeted on arrival and shown to our large place. Everyone had their own quarters staked out, separate bedrooms, separate areas of the apartment. There was a stocked kitchen and a tv... More

Thanks to Louise and her husband for going the extra mile to make our family stay as pleasant as they possible could. Villa 2 kitchen hot water tap broken, water leaked, we even tried to buy a new fitting. Rooms need to be aired prior to guests arriving. Villa 1 water leaking in upstairs bedroom.

I can not rate the establishment as I did not actually get to stay there - but if how they handled my booking is anything to go by then I am glad I did not stay there. I booked and paid a 50% deposit 2 months in advance - for 5 people, 3 nights. I was contact 2 weeks before... More

The 3-bedroom accommodation was perfect for our family. Our 4 young children enjoyed looking for the bush buck as soon as the sun was up. Villa Chante and all of Dana Bay were relaxingly quiet. We spent the day in Mossel Bay.

We had an awesome stay at Villa Chante. From Frans, who handled our booking & was most accommodating to Louise at the establishment - we received nothing but excellent hospitality. Place is lovely and clean and a stunning view.
