We stayed in the apartment. It was really spacious, comfortable and well equipped for a self catering place. Friendly welcome and beautiful location, A good base for exploring Plettenberg Bay and Knysna.

Beautiful views, comfortable beds and fynbos trails brimming with birds. Friendly service, well maintained and very clean. A must visit and stay for more than a week because there is lots to see. They also have two pet pigs that are cute & naughty. Highly recommend!!! :)

Fynbos Ridge exceeded our expectations. During our 4 night stay, hosts, Mel, Liz and Brian were so welcoming, friendly and helpful from the minute we arrived. The beautiful location, hidden away down a long drive was an unexpected surprise. Although initially allocated to one of the more isolated cottages, our hosts enabled us to transfer to the main house with... More

We returned to lovely Fynbos Ridge for a third visit this Christmas. Once again had a fabulous stay in one of the cottages, perfect for our family of five. The grounds, swimming pool & views are gorgeous. Mel, Liz & Brian are fab hosts. We love the location so close to bustling Plett, but so quiet & tranquil. We have... More

We had a wonderful stay at Fynbos Ridge over Christmas.Bryan & his wife were so welcoming that we quickly felt at home. Hidden away surrounded by beautiful gardens it makes for a great relaxed retreat

Fynbos Ridge is a beautiful property set in peaceful countryside and yet only a short drive to Plettenburg Bay and all the attractions of the area. We stayed in a cottage which was extremely well equipped and we had a delicious dinner delivered to the cottage one night and cooked our own braii on another evening. We also stayed in... More

This was our second visit to Fynbos Ridge this time as a family. The cottage came up to our expectations and worked very well for 4 people. The cottage is well equipped. As ever the owners were extremely welcoming and friendly.

It was kind of weird. Stayed there twice in past three weeks and it was very pretty. Nice rooms, big garden, everyone very helpful and friendly. All fine until our last morning (Jan 8) when, after we mentioned news of the Paris attack, one of the hosts replied with one horrendous statement about Muslims. Always a shock when someone who...

Very Nice and elegant accomodation in Nature, distance too beach but reachable in 10 minutes by car. Good Service, distance to braches of Plettenberg and restaurants but reichbelohnte in 10 minutes by car. Undorzunately we were not alle to have pur Dinner there as the Cook (and Owner) was ill. What we disliked were the Pigs at breakfast .

We really enjoyed our stay at Fynbos Ridge and wished we had booked for longer (only 1 night unfortunately). Cottage was very well equipped and spotlessly clean. Walking trail and animals were nice for kids. Hosts and staff were really friendly and helpful - tip for stopping at Wilderness beach worked out brilliantly. Only issue was that pool looked dirty...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us. We appreciate it. All comments help us to improve. I think that the weather did affect the pool on that day, as our water is usually clear and inviting. Glad that we could help with suggestions for your trip! More
