A very, very lovely home away from home. The best sleep ever under the starry sky and the distant surf . Era and Raoul are perfect hosts. South African hospitality at its best during sun-downers on their veranda or "stoop" with the view of South African sunsets over the Indian Ocean. Insightful chats and valuable tips to other interesting sites... More

Hi Eva G, Thanks for a great review. However, you must have made a typo as you only gave us 1 star out of 5. Reading the review, you seemed to have been happy with everything hence the comment of the typo. It would be greatly appreciated if you could correct the rating. We had a great time hosting you...

We stayed here for a couple of nights at the start of a Garden Route tour. It is less than one hour from Cape Town Airport and you get to drive along the spectacular Clarence Drive coast road. The B & B is a lovely, modern, well-appointed property in a beautiful and peaceful location. We stayed in the Dolphin (honeymoon)... More

An absolutely wonderful B&B with great hospitality from Raoul and Era. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The accommodation was very comfortable and spacious with lovely tasteful furnishings. We couldn't have wished for anything better. We loved our drinks with both Raoul and Era in the evenings. My son was most enthralled with the knowledge Raoul had about South Africa and... More

Welcoming hosts, high quality self contained accommodation in a wonderful, quiet setting and an excellent breakfast. The lovely Harold Porter National Botanical Gardens just up the road. What more could you ask for?

Raoul and Era couldn't have been more welcoming. On Mondays and Tuesday everything shuts down for dinner in Betty's Bay but not a problem as our wonderful guests cooked us a Braai (South African BBQ).
