Gerald and Viv are wonderful people, for whom hospitality is very very important. The rooms are spacious, the lounge more than comfortable. The facilities are excellent, the view is stunning. Having breakfast in the patio of this guesthouse is like being in paradise. We hope to come back, this was the best guesthouse we had during our holidays in South-Afrika.

Clean white rooms, amazing hosts w/ reception glass of wine. One of the owners, Gerald, even helped us carry our luggage down to our room and booked us a great dinner at The Fat Fish. LOVED Plettenberg Bay and would absolutely come back. The B&B was a beautifully and uniquely designed house for the owners. Calming and serene stay close... More

The house is architecturally contemporary with extraordinary views of Plettenberg Bay and it's spectacular beaches. All the 5 guest rooms are on the lower level with views of the swimming pool, deck, luscious garden and the... More

We stayed at Bosavern Guest House for three nights during a recent visit to the Cape. The house is boutique style, beautifully furnished with amazing views of Plettenberg Bay from all rooms. Our bedroom had a private terrace opening on to the swimming pool and there was an additional deck beyond with sun loungers. We were given a very warm... More

Vivian…we can’t say enough good things about her. She was fantastic! She took care of us like we were her children. She is absolutely lovely! And her house was amazing and her staff/cooks were wonderful. I would recommend this place to everyone I know. She left no detail unattended to. Not in the way of the rooms/décor, customer service…nothing! She... More
