A great 3 night stay, many thanks to JP for his guidance and interesting chats. We were out most of the days but spent one lovely afternoon up on the sundeck, amazing views. We have to say Thank-you to Mrs. JP for the fantastic breakfasts every morning. Delicious fruits and faultless cooked breakfasts. Highly recommend..!

We spent 2 nights at Thanda Vista and the stay was excellent. The attention to detail is wonderful. Nothing was too much trouble for JP. The rooms were very comfortable and had everything you needed even down to beach towels and beach bag. JP even provided us with chairs and umbrellas for the beach which was great. All in all...

On arrival we were given a warm welcome by JP and advised via dvd's of the numerous attractions in the vicinity, very useful! The room was clean and comfortable, and the living area an art lover's delight! Breakfasts, prepared by Petro, were delicious, and each table had the guest's flag on it, a special touch. Splendid views from dining area.... More

The standard room we occupied was small (if you have two large suitcases), the television was old and situated too high up, near the ceiling ,making viewing difficult. However the beds were very comfortable and the bathroom facilities good. Internet connection was also good. Enjoyed the breakfast and the views from the breakfast room.

Great hosts! JP gave us all kinds of suggestions of places to go or to eat, and even made reservations for us. Clean, friendly, quiet. The rooms are a bit small, but we were rarely there. Nice area to explore.

I've been to Plett many times and stayed at many places but if I had a choice I'd always go back to JP and Petro. From the warm welcome to the stunning view with a delicious breakfast it was perfect. Not to forget all the lovely little surprises that make the difference.

Although the rooms are a bit small, Thanda Vista proved to be an excellent place to stay. It is safe, quiet and very clean. The friendly staff gave us valuable advice about local attractions and the breakfasts, not to mention the views from the breakfast room, were second to none.
