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

From the moment you step foot inside Thanda Vista till the moment you leave, J.P.(as he likes to be known) his wife and very capable staff tend to your every need. Beautiful fresh fruit salad and various juice, cut meats cheeses, cereals the list just goes on, but the crème de le crème are the choices for an English cooked... More

Have stayed with JP and Petro many times during my adventures around SA and have always found them to be the most wonderful hosts. The accommodation is top notch and breakfast served looking out over a breath taking view can't be beaten . JP's local knowledge about places to eat and things to do is a great help to ensure...

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

Thanda Vista is a great place to stay and JP is a welcoming host. When we arrived he asked us where we'd been already and suggested places we may also like to visit. At one point there was an issue with water supply to the whole area, completely out of JP's control but he did everything he could to ensure... More

It is impossible to fully convey just how special this B&B is. I have not experienced this kind of attention to detail combined with such a personal level of service in any other establishment. Everything was perfect, if you try to think what would make your stay more comfortable J.P and Petro have already implemented it. The best accommodation we... More
