The Lodge is stunning, with beautiful views of Plettenberg Bay. The rooms are perfect, and the breakfast was exquisite. Cornelle and her team are very professional and helpful. Will definitely recommend La Vista Lodge.

Upon our arrival we were upgraded to the Honeymoon Suite which was great. The room was spacious (had its own lounge) and the views were amazing. Breakfast was delicious with everything made fresh on the day. We had muffins, croissants, fruit salad, ham, cheeses as well as a tasty hot breakfast. The staff were very friendly and eager to share... More

We stayed here en route from Cape Town to PE and liked it so much we stayed for 3 nights rather than the planned 2. The Lodge has the most beautiful views of the Bay and even though it was July we had breakfast outside and wathed three groups of whales 100m off shore. Cornelle and the team were more... More

We were well looked after and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The view is magnificent and the B & B is well situated to explore the Garden Route. Cornelle made some good suggestions regarding restuarants and places to visit.Thanks for a great stay and wonderfull service topped off by 6 star meals. Keep up the good work... More

After reading previous reviews we were concerned about security but was assured that the establishment is under new management with an on-site manager. From time of arrival to the time we left we did feel very safe due to electric fencing, outside sensors and an inside alarm. We were warmly welcomed and found all the staff very pleasant and helpful.... More

This is beautiful location overlooking the bay. The villa is large and well equipped. After reading previous reviews about burglary we were a little worried. However, the security was very good with electric fencing, outside sensors and armed response on call. So felt very safe with 8 adults and 7 small children. We were there for Christmas and found the... More

The accommodation is fantastic, the agents take great care of the guests and the views are exquisite. I would strongly recommend this place, save for the fact that we were broken into twice whilst sleeping. Approximately $4,000 worth of goods were taken. The security system was not enough to deter the thieves. We eventually insisted that we have a 24... More

Spent 3 nights here over Christmas and it was fantastic. We were in the pool suite, which was huge, it overlooked the pool and had a great view of the sea. Christmas morning we went down to breakfast and the little things made it very special, the owner had put crackers and Christmas decorations on our table. Breakfast was filling... More
