My partner and I have just returned home from our 4th visit to wonderful Bosavern. If you're planning a visit to this beautiful part of SA then look no further than this stunning property with amazing views across the whole of the bay. Owners, Viv and Gerald, offer hospitality beyond compare. They are attentive but never intrusive, they offer advice... More

Within minutes as you meet Viv and Gerald, see the stunning building and look at the amazing view, you realize you have arrived somewhere very special and we were very glad we had booked for a seven night stay. We loved everything about it and felt more like guests staying at a friends house but friends who worked very hard... More

We travel a fair bit and this place was definitely amongst the top places we have visited. Firstly Vivien and Gerald are incredibly welcoming and attentive; secondly the location is fabulous with views over Plettenberg; and thirdly there is high speed internet and when it broke down, Vivien was on to it immediately.

We spent three nights at the Bosavern Guest House, where Viv and Gerald made us most welcome. The service they provided was exceptional, booking our restaurants, taxis and much more. The rooms were kept spotless and the veiws fantastic. When we return this will be the place we stay. Many thanks Viv and Gerald.

Unfortunately, we only had one night at Bosavern Guest House. Had we know how delightful it was, we would have changed our plans. Our hosts, Viv and Gerald made us so welcome and could not do enough to ensure our stay was memorable. Bosavern Guest House is beautiful; the accommodation lovely and the views spectacular. Highly recommended.

This is a fantastic guest house. It is set up above Plett and the views are stunning. You can also walk down into the town during the day time or take a short taxi ride at night. The house is bright and airy. Our room was large with a very large bathroom including a wet room shower. We could step... More

I have nothing but praise for this place. I stayed here for two nights in Feb 2014. I was by myself. However, Viv and Gerald (the hosts) made me feel so welcome. My room was more than adequate and the view was stunning. Lol, I particularly enjoyed watching the cricket in my room whilst the patio door was open to... More

We stayed at Bosavern for 2 wonderful nights. Vivan and Gerald were so sweet and caring, that it sometimes felt like we are staying at a family friend's house rather than the usual B&B. The room was clean and big, the breakfast was very good, and the view from the place is stunning. Highly recommended!
