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!

We were wonderfully looked after when we stayed with Viv and Gerald in August. They made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The early evening aperitif was the cherry on the cake! We would certainly recommend it to anyone travelling through this beautiful part of Africa.

A stunning home on the edge of a cliff overlooking the Piesang River Valley, with beautiful views of Plettenberg Bay and Robberg; spotlessly clean accommodation and a superb breakfast. The hosts, Viv & Gerald, are friendly and helpful.
