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

The room we had was beautiful with wonderful views across the pool and patio and to the sea. Breakfast we good... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights. Lovely clean, light rooms, beautiful bathroom, exceptional standard, run by a local couple who have good tips for trips and restaurants. Large bed which was not always standard at other places.

Nice and modern guest house, very stylish, good location and not far away from the city, great view, rooms very close to pool area, pleasant stay. Small problem is higher humidity in rooms due to lack of aircondition.
