We would recommend staying at Bosavern Guest House to anyone visiting Plettenberg Bay. Gerald & Vivian made our stay special, nothing was too much trouble for them, booking reservations in restaurants, taxis and even washing our car. We had first class accommodation, our rooms were wonderful and breakfast delicious, the girls were also great. Had a fabulous time & hope... More

Gerald and Vivian are the most friendly host you can think of. They really care! The guest house itself also reflects this attitude, because it is equipped with everything you might need - and even more.

We spent a fabulous 2 nights with Vivienne and Gerald in their beautiful guesthouse. We arrive on Saturday evening and were pleasantly surprised to hear that Vivienne had kindly made a dinner reservation for us, as the resturants in town were very busy. Such thoughtfulness is truly exceptional. Everything about this guesthouse is first class. Vivienne's friendliness and exceptional local... More

Bosavern Guest house with its fantastic veiw over the bay, friendly hosts and comfortable accommodation gave us a perfect stay in Plettenberg during our first travel in South Africa. Our next visit to this fantastic country will certainly include some days in Plettenberg and Bosavern.

Gerald and Viv, gave us such a warm welcome. The room was clean and very comfortable with excellent views and a lovely en suite. The breakfast was delicious and plentyful. While we were there we were given helpful hints on what to visit and where to eat. And after just a two night stay it felt more like leaving friends,... More

My wife and I were lucky enough to spend 9 nights at Bosavern, in the delightful company of Viv and Gerald. The whole experience was utterly superb. The setting is magnificent. The building itself is a stunning piece of architecture, with its wave-like wooden roof beams, contrasting with the pristine whiteness of the walls. The room (No.5) was large, perfectly... More

Everything about this Guest House is excellent: the hosts (very helpful and go more than the extra mile!), the room (beware though no bath in our room althouh not an issue really), the breakfast (great choice and ingredients), the location (stunning views and only 15 minutes to centre of town on foot).

Bosavern Guest House offers a very high standard of accommodation and is extremely comfortable. The kids loved the pool and the adults relaxing and... More

Viv and Gerald Dreyer, a management team running beautiful Bosavern Guest House with a lot of hospitality. The guest house is situated on a hill. From the garden you have an unforgetable view on Plettenberg Bay and her beaches. Viv knows the sites you should visit very well and books a lunch or diner for you in the best possible... More
