We spent 5 lovely nights at Stone Cottage and we are definitely going back! This is such a charming space, beautifully and thoughtfully decorated and run by exceptionally nice people too. We stayed in Pierre, which is great if you want a bit of privacy as it has its own braai area. It also has the best view from the... More

In my years of traveling SA I have lodged in few places more wondrous! Stone Cottage has an excellent view and is centrally located in Plett. The space is beautiful and interesting at every glance. Some serious aesthetic eye-candy! An impressive testament to the owner, and her family's generations of artistic expression. There are all the comforts one could desire:... More

The location and the view can not be beat. The house itself is incredible! It has been in the same family since it was built 4 generations ago and the character has built up over time. But don't take character to mean it's run down, it's not!! It's amazingly maintained. The views are incredible, especially from the hot tub on... More

Stumbled accross Stone Cottage by chance while searching for accommodation and decided to stay in the Boetie Pierre room which is perfect for a couple or a small family. The rooms were clean and we were able to come and go as we please after booking in and being told how the set-up works. Will def. be staying here again... More

Beautiful place smack bang in the middle of Plett, with a fantastic view over the bay, framed by big leafy trees. The suits are beautifully decorated with found objects, interesting books and quirky vintage bits and bobs, that looks stylish and effortlessly cool, yet still feels cosy and unpretentious. The Boetie Pierre is extremely spacious and has a long private... More

A well hidden gem, in the middle of Plett. What a great experience. Welcoming staff, amazing view, rustic & quaint rooms and very reasonably priced. We found it a little cold in the evening but were well supplied with a fire place and hot water bottles. Would definitely go back there again.
