Owners were away but the housesitters, Walter and Amanda, were very good replacements. They were very friendly and helpful as we were new to the area. Breakfast was excellent and the views of the bay were magnificent. I would definitely stay again.

We arrived and thought the rooms a little small, however perfectly formed, and overlooking the sea. Within 30 minutes we had forgotten all about the space and realised how lucky we were to have chosen Thanda Vista. Read others reviews on the hotel layout and lovely breakfasts, the one thing that will remain with you about Thanda Vista is the... More

Moved to Thanda Vista from an appalling self catering place in the town so it was going to be better whatever. However, it turned out to be better than expected. Our room, although perhaps a little on the small side for a 7 day stay, was very well organised and equipped. As was the bathroom where there were even hooks... More

The only thing we were disappointed a little bit about, was the size of the room and that we didn't get a "sea room" with a little balcony. All the rest was excellent ! Thank you and best regards Bernard & Silvia

Dear Bernard Many thanks for your review. Yes, the non-sea view rooms are rather on the small size but they have all the necessary comforts. Next time book a sea view room. They were available when you made the booking in July last year. But thanks for staying with us and we hope to see you again at Thanda Vista... More

JP & Petro do a magnificent job of running their glorious B&B. Nothing is too difficult and the attention to detail is amazing. As a result our week at Thanda Vista was hugely enjoyable. The position of Th V is good with views to the beaches, headlands, mountains and yet a beach is just a couple of hundred yards. From... More

We enjoyed our time with JP and Petro. Our room was most comfortable, breakfast was fantastic, and and having WiFi available was very helpful. We would recommend Thanda Vista as a terrific place to stay.

A nice stay located in the subarea of Plettenberg Bay town center. The service was good but the size of the room a little to small for 2 person with lagguage. The view of the bay from the guest house roof was fantastic. As well as the breakfast.

Many thanks for your review and we are pleased to learn that you had a nice stay. We have noted your remarks about the size of the extra room and that is why we have provided space for luggage in one of the cupboards. I probably did not point this out you. My apology! Kind regards JP More
