We really enjoyed our stay at Thanda Vista. The hosts are really caring and pay attention to the needs of their guests, e.g. recommending suitable activities in the proximity of Plettenberg Bay. We would definitely recommend this guesthouse.

A very nice couple run this B&B, its safe and beautyful. The breakfast was one of the best we had on our 3 week long stay in SA. Our room was facing the backyard, it would be nicer to have a room facing the ocean

Awesome accom with great friendly hosts. Very professional & may even be better than the local hotels at affordable prices. Knowledgeable hosts who were able to advise on the best places to visit & the best routes to use over the festive season. I will definitely go back for a longer stay!
