Our stay at Days at Sea was nothing short of a dream. The style, art, decor, attention to detail, the love, passion and pleasure that Guido and Annette have infused in this secluded boutique lodge are unparalelled. I recommend a lengthy stay. Relax, and let your hosts take care of everything. Really really magnificent. Thank you! Giuseppe & Claire Soffietti

We had a wonderful stay at Days at Sea in Trafalgar SA !! The location is great, with a full view of the Ocean from our terrace and to the pool in the garden. We loved the interior of the rooms and public area's. Simply beautiful with great staff, a elicious breakfast and superb diner, for sure 5 stars.

My wife and I have just returned from a 2 night stay here. After browsing through many pictures and seeing the 5 star grading we thought this would be the perfect place for us as we enjoy the finer things in life.

We are very sorry that you apparently did not enjoy your stay because your breakfast was not prepared in time. You are right: you wanted to have your breakfast at 6.30 am, you left the Lodge though at 6.00 am triggering the alarm. A whole team was ready at 6.10 am to serve the breakfast for you when they found... More

"Time is our gift to you!" the introductory e-mail said, and so it was. What a gift! We stayed in Inkawu and it was perfect. So, too, was the syrupy, laid-back feeling (what I miss the most about my home province of KwaZulu-Natal), and all the thoughtfulness in both the room and the way everything worked.
